Developer Social Quantum’s recently released city-building game Megapolis debuted in the top 10 on this week’s top iOS apps charts, landing at the No. 2 position for iPhone and No. 10 position for iPad. Broadcast TV network CBS launched its CBS app last week, which allows users to stream full episodes of CBS shows, and it has already claimed the No. 1 spot on the top free iPad apps chart.
