Whether we're talking skittles, bowling, or Jenga, the simple fact remains that we all love knocking stuff over. It's no surprise, then, that Perfect Hit! tops the September iPad Qi game chart with its bright 3D graphics and impeccably solid physics. If we were handing out awards for style, though, Graveck's Strata would be the undisputed #1 game for September. As it is, it's a worthy #5 thanks to the refreshing ribbon-based take on the casual puzzle genre. Following closely behind, Junk Jack X has built quite a name for 'itself'. Yes, that was a (truly awful) pun. And, no, I don't care. In the game itself, you have to construct, forage, and explore your way to victory. Heroes of Loot also had a good month, with OrangePixel seamlessly combining elements of roguelike RPGs and arcade shooters.

According to Qi, September's top iPad app is Pixaki. It's a powerful tool that allows you to create the kind of pixel-art that used to be seen in '80s and '90s video games. Sticking with the arty theme, we have Diptic PDQ at #4. This application is billed as "the fastest way to create photo collages and share them with friends." They might just be right. In seventh spot, meanwhile, Smart Coin acts as the pocket currency converter you never realised you needed until you came across that street market on holiday and didn't want to incur a hefty roaming charge just to find out the cost of a hand-carved back scratcher. Yes, THAT time. Finally, there's Color Thief, which might sound like it belongs in the games section, but is actually a very cool photo editing tool. It enables you to borrow the colour tone of a particular image and apply it to another, making it perfect for collages.

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 iPad games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the  iPad Quality Index  now.
