iPad App of the Week – Ancient Battle: Alexander

Ancient Battle Alexander for iPad

iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Ancient Battle: Alexander, a very cool new strategy war game from Hunted Cow Studios. Hunted Cow have been bringing some excellent war games to the iPad for years now. I did a review of the Civil War: 1863 iPad game back in 2012.

I enjoyed the heck out of that game and I’ve happily bought and played a Civil War follow-up and a couple of World War II tank games they’ve released over the last couple years. Ancient Battle: Alexander is their latest release and covers one of the great military leaders of ancient times – Alexander the Great.

This week’s pick is Ziner – RSS Reader that believes in simplicity, supports Feedly. That’s way too long a name, so I’ll call it Ziner RSS Reader or just Ziner for the remainder of this post.

Ziner is a very nice, clean RSS reader app for the iPad and for users of Feedly. That last part is important to note – because a Feedly account is required to use the app. That’s not a worry for me as Feedly has been my favorite RSS service by far ever since the demise of Google Reader.
