Football Manager Handheld 2014 for iPad Updated: January Transfer Window Data & More

Football Manager Handheld 2014 for iPad

Football Manager Handheld 2014 for iPad, this year’s version of the very best football management game around, has been updated this week – to Version 5.3.

By far and away the biggest addition in this update is the January transfer window data update – which takes into account all the new signings and player movement that took place during the season’s second and final transfer window.

There’s also a lengthy list of bug fixes and tweaks / improvements to the game. Here is the full list:

Fixed scout results panel incorrectly displaying scout on an assignment
Fixed players appearing in scout results that have been signed by the user
Fix for some scout report summaries changing between viewings
Tuned transfer and regen AI
Fixed rare player profile crash when player is signed by an inactive reserve team
Added Sweeper position to some player position strings
Tweaked ability of virtual players at top clubs slightly

Fixed instances where match analysis string in news item did not match that on the page itself
Tweaked AI manager movement
Added news item when starting game managing nation/unemployed
Added injury doubt to Player Availability page
Improved predicted line-up on Next Match page

Fixed retention of inactive area display style in preferences

Added option to view club tactic page by default when tapping club name
Tuned loans to non-domestic clubs
Tuned transfer AI (free transfer signings)
Tuned transfer AI (declining older players)
Tweaked how players react to sales

I’m a long-time huge fan of the Football Manager franchise – on PC and now for several years on the iPad instead of a PC. So I always appreciate these game updates, and the list for this one looks good – and like a heck of a good reason to fire up a new game this week to check it out.

QuizUp for iPad Updated: New Topics & More

QuizUp iPad app

The excellent QuizUp real-time trivia game for iPad was updated yesterday, to Version 1.1.4.

The update brings a new home screen look, with a new sidebar for quick access to the game’s main sections, and new topics to test our knowledge on. Beer Logos is one of the fun new ones that I tried out last night.

Here’s the full change list for this update to QuizUp:

Yet again we’ve made some improvements to everyone’s favorite trivia game.
+We improved the home screen! More stuff to tap, more interesting topics to check out, and generally much better access to all the great options QuizUp has to offer!
+Bug fixes and stability improvements! Because we can’t stop, no we won’t stop.

QuizUp is easily the most fun trivia game I’ve seen for the iPad. I picked it as our iPad App of the Week a few months back and had this to say about it:

I’m a big fan of trivia games, and QuizUp is an instant big favorite for me. It’s not mildly addictive. It’s full-on crazily addictive. Just one more game and I’ll eat dinner that turns into 12 more games and 5 rematches type addictive.

Here’s an App Store link for QuizUp; it’s a free app and a universal app designed for both iPad and iPhone.
