My iPhone/iPad App Updates in the Past Week: Bumper Crop! 57 Updates




An astonishing (in my opinion) number of apps were updated in the past week: 57! These are apps that I’ve installed at one time on an iPod touch, iPhone, or iPad at one time or another. However, not all of these apps are actually on a device or in use. I normally note each app, check for any functional changes (vs. bug fixes or minor enhancments), and report my findings in this weekly update. However, because of this past week’s massive number of updates, I will only note significant app updates. Here we go! Apps preceded by an asterisk (*) are installed on my iPad.
