London, UK– 1st December 2010– If you were wondering what the best reviewed iPhone games and apps on the web last month were, here's Steel Media's  Quality index ( Qi) round-up for November to fill you in.

Aggregating the collective wisdom of the reviewers from websites such as 148Apps, Pocket GamerGamezeboIGNSlide to Play, and TiPB, these are collated together in a magical way to output a single definitive  Qi score for each iPhone title.

Naturally, the Qi listings are live and subject to constant change as new releases and new credible reviews emerge, but in order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, the site will round up the best of the iPhone games and apps released each month and provide a definitive  Qi Top 10.

(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles released and reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)

Whilst Sentinel 3: Homeworld manages to defend its position as the best reviewed game of November, stiff competition from the indie likes of Stick Golf and Wispin keeps Origin8's strategist honest at the top. LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Cave's Mushihimesama Bug Panic are arguably the highest profile titles on the Qi games round-up, attracting a host of positive reviews from across the web.

On the apps chart, meanwhile, amateur photographers are well catered for, with MobileMonet, Instagram, and ColorBlast! lending enthusiastic snappers a helping hand or three. And speaking of catering, Mario Batali Cooks! serves up a storm on the listings, alongside a very useful tool for Disneyland Paris holidaymakers.

We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the  Quality index  now.
