If you were wondering what the best reviewed iPad games and apps on the web last month were, here's the iPad Quality Index (Qi) round-up for July to fill you in.
The iPad Quality Index boasts over 50,000 scores from the world's best websites, such as 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and AppSpy, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPad title.

(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)
Adopting a refreshingly irreverent, fourth wall-breaking tone, Picnic Hippo Studios’s casual physics game Bucketz finished July 2012 at #2 in the iPad Qi game chart, one place below Wizards of the Coast's brilliantly realised digital interpretation of its physical card game phenomenon Magic: The Gathering. Meanwhile, Song Pop, in fifth spot on this month's hit parade, takes the great British pub quiz out of the pub and puts it in your pocket. Featuring online cross-platform competitive play, Song Pop tasks you with identifying the names of tunes and artists before your opponent. Right up alongside that is frenetic 2D shoot-‘em-up Bug Princess 2 Black Label from cult Japanese developer Cave. This old skool blaster is actually a remix of Bug Princess 2, but with the addition of all-new God and Boss Rush modes.
The field of interactive children’s apps is a growing one - and one that we’d speculate may be commensurate with an increase in affordable iPad cases. Mr.shape’s TouchCard is the latest kiddie app to make an impression in the iOS universe, joining the leaders at the top of our iPad apps chart for July 2012. Another highly rated - but distinctly non-kiddie - iPad app this month is Med Time, which notifies you when it’s time to take your medication. Right up there with it is Mood Shifter by Pamela Turner - an intriguing app that promises to transform negative moods like fear and pessimism into positive ones like confidence and optimism. Get in there!
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 iPad Quality Index now.
