Emerging paid iOS apps: iTranslate Voice, Pandemic 2.5 and N.O.V.A 3 – Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance

Austrian developer Sonico Mobile and its utility iTranslate Voice takes the top spot on the iPhone paid apps chart this week. The app allows users to speak to their phones and have their words translated and rebroadcast in one of 31 available languages. Released on May 10, the app is currently on sale for $0.99. Lower down the charts Dark Realm Studios’ game Pandemic 2.5 continues to see a significant number of downloads, though it dropped from No. 2 to No. 5 on the iPhone app charts.

The iPad charts saw no change at the top this week as Rovio’s Angry Birds Space continued to hold the No. 1 spot, but Gameloft’s brand new, No. 10-ranked N.O.V.A. 3 – Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance had a very strong debut. Upon its release on May 10 the title was able to reach the top 10 of the paid app charts in 69 countries. The $6.99 game includes both a single-player storyline mode and six different 12-player multiplayer modes.
