iPad App of the Week: Comic Zeal

iPad App of the Week

I’ve only really just started to have a look at the gaming side of the iPad in the past week.  Jen’s had Angry Birds on there from day one but the game doesn’t really interest me. To be honest, it looks like there’s not a lot of great unique gaming experiences on the iPad yet with the bestselling products generally ...
