With the incredible success of the original Angry Birds, few iOS gamers were probably surprised that Angry Birds Space would rocket to the top of the iTunes App Store. I’ve been playing the game quite a lot over the past 24 hours, and though I’ve noticed some bugs (kill all pigs with one bird to get one star, anyone?), the new gravity fields, interesting levels, and new bird types definitely add something new to the game.

Comixology continues to dominate the mobile comics reading app market with new features for its iOS app, including high-definition comics that take advantage of the new iPad‘s Retina Display.

Updated earlier this week, Comixology’s Comics 3.1 (download) lets you read comics on the new iPad with double the resolution of comics on previous models. It also supports sharing your comments on comics via Facebook, Twitter, and e-mail; and offers a Read Now button which lets you begin reading a comic before a comic has fully downloaded.

Support for the Retina Display almost didn’t make it into Comixology 3.1, said Chip Mosher, the company’s Director of Marketing. “Our developers turned around HD support in about five days. That’s a testament to how dedicated they are.”

The difference in resolution is apparent when holding a new iPad next to an iPad 2 and looking at the same comic. If you’ve downloaded a comic for the iPad 2, Comixology will let you download it again in HD at no extra cost.

Readers can identify high-definition comics by the “CMX-HD” badge in Comixology’s store, and the company plans to update its entire catalog with high-def comics over the next few months. Currently, only a selection of DC and Marvel comics are available in HD, although expect that to change rapidly. Comixology also has said that there will be no price difference for the HD comics, which are around two to three times larger on disk than the current comics. Read the rest of this entry »
