There's a bit of irony in the game's title, because I'm pretty sure going down in a hailstorm of bullets is anything but blissful. The slightly odd name aside, however, once you start playing DoDonPachi Blissful Death you'll feel right at home if you're a fan of Cave. If you peruse their titles on the App Store you'll note they primarily do one thing, but they do that well – scrolling shooters. To be even more specific, their area of expertise seems to be the "bullet hell" shooter, though from that perspective Blissful Death is a bit milder than most of its type. That's good news for me, because I'm terrible at bullet hell games.(...)

Instapaper, arguably the best read it later app on iOS (this despite the recent relaunch of the very capable Pocket), has been updated to v4.2 and adds even more substance to its already impressive list of features. The all-new “Fast Pagination Mode” improves upon the accuracy and page-turn speed thanks to the complete re-write of the old pagination code. And for those who love iBook’s page-turn animations, you’ll be happy to know that Instapaper now mimics the same effect when swiping from one page to the next (optional). Other new additions include a two finger swipe gesture to close an article, an “Auto” full screen mode and a draggable dot bar that replaces the old scoll bar in pagination mode. Instapaper is a universal app and free for existing users, otherwise, will cost $4.99. Full list of what’s new after the break.
Marco Arment, Instapaper - $4.99
