The iPad App Store refreshes its Featured section every Thursday. The New and Noteworthy and Staff Favorites sections have fresh selections in them and there are new picks for the app and game of the week. There are also often new and topical featured sections. This week one of those is Space – Stellar Apps & Games.
It’s quite a nice collection of 35 space themed apps and games. Some of the great choices in the selection include Star Walk and Solar Walk for star gazers and astronomy buffs, Dead Space for iPad (Apple’s choice for iPad Game of the Year last year), two great apps from NASA, Buzz Aldrin’s Portal to Science and Space Exploration, and even a version of the old arcade classic, Space Invaders.
They missed one more superb NASA app – Ascent: Commemorating Shuttle, which is my favorite of all the excellent NASA apps.
If you’re interested in space-themed apps and games, or have kids who are and use your iPad, this new section is well worth a look. You can find it on the main Featured page in the iPad App Store.
