Call of Duty: Strike Team

Call of Duty: Strike Team is a $7 offering for iPhone and iPad that, let’s face it, you already know whether or not you’re going to buy. It takes place in the year 2020—you’re the leader of a special ops team hunting down the unknown enemy who perpetrated a surprise attack on the U.S. You can switch between first-person views and third-person recon overviews. Also, you get to kill lots of bad guys.

Is it your most solemn hope to make Mark Wahlberg’s smoothie recipe? Your wish is granted.

Jamie Oliver's Recipes

Jamie Oliver’s Recipes, a free app for iPhone and iPad, has been bringing the TV chef’s food to your dining room for awhile now. This week’s update lets you take photos of your Oliver-inspired meals and share them directly to Facebook; subscribers now have access to more than 290 step-by-step recipes. (Subscriptions start at $3 a month.)

Mubi

Mubi for iPad is a hardcore cinephile’s dream: For $5 a month, you can stream a new independent, foreign, or classic film every day—30 new movies in all, to be watched within a 30-day window. The even better news? You can stream the movie via AirPlay to your Apple TV.

The Peace App

In the world of iPhones and iPads, inner peace costs $3. The Peace App guides users through yoga, meditation, prayer, and other forms of mindfulness in order to attain that elusive state of well-being. Namaste.

StarComposer

The free StarComposer app for iPhone and iPad lets non-musicians put together instrument loops and record their own vocals to create original songs. There are more than 120 loops to choose from in 10 different musical styles, though you’ll be making in-app purchases to unlock most of those features. But at $1 apiece, you could say those loops are going … for a song.

Stickman Downhill

The $1 Stickman Downhill game for iOS should be a welcome addition for biking fans. Here, the Stickman is riding a two-wheeler across increasingly challenging hill courses. Speed up, brake, or wipe out. No matter what, you’re likely to have a lot of fun.

Yahoo! Screen

Why do you want the free Yahoo! Screen app for iPhone and iPad? Simply put: Yahoo now has exclusive rights to clips from the entire history of Saturday Night Live. (Full episodes can still be found on other services.) If you want to giggle your way through the classic “Choppin’ Broccoli” sketch and want it served up without all the filler sketches you get in a typical episode, this is where you’ll do it.

Other apps of note

Xbox Music (pictured) is now available on the iPhone … Microsoft OneNote has updated for faster downloads and smaller installation size … and VLC for iOS now has support for subtitles.
