Twitter for iOS was updated earlier this afternoon and users will undoubtedly welcome the new additions. Twitter’s expanded tweets feature, which you’ve likely experienced already online (and on the mobile site) has made its way onto the iPhone and iPad (this is being rolled out gradually, so it’s possible that tweets don’t expand for you just yet). For those not familiar, users expanding tweets to partner sites (NYT, WSJ, TIME etc) will see content previews, view images and even be able to play videos right then without leaving the page. One example of this is if you tap on that Kickstarter tweet on your iPhone, you’ll be able watch the project video directly from the Tweet details view in the app.

Christmas in July is over, but there were still some interesting games that made their way to the App Store this week. As a fan of the undead I'm willing to give most zombie games a try, and while I'm not a huge word game fan I quite enjoyed the time I spent with ZombieWords so far. It will definitely test your ability to spell words quickly, and proves that games don't have to be action oriented to provide tense situations. If you're in the mood for something a bit zanier, why not give Chillingo's Jar On A Bar a try? The ability to flick pieces adds a whole new dimension to the game play, and the fish is really cute. Finally, strategy buffs might appreciate the turn based mayhem of Outwitters. If it's got the same humor and ease of playability of its predecessor Tilt To Live then it should be an instant classic.

Everyone's favourite squids have ridden their way back into our palms in The Game Bakers latest entry into the cult classic Squids franchise. Squids Wild West continues the story of the first game (TMA Review) and pulls the setting into an adorable underwater Western world. The Game Bakers have stuck to what they know, which in this case is a very good thing. While little has changed from Squids, subtle improvements have been made to the game's fluidity, along with minor introductions such as mounted seahorses for your squid-slinging pleasure.
