London, UK - 2nd May 2013 - Steel Media Ltd
If you were wondering what the best reviewed iPhone games and apps on the web last month were, here's the iPhone Quality Index ( Qi) round-up for April to fill you in.
The iPhone Quality Index boasts over 250,000 scores from the world's best websites, such as 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and What's On iPhone, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPhone title.
Here are April 2013's top selections...

(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.)
Letter Attack is the highest-scoring game in April's iPhone Qi game chart. The word game business is on a bit of a high at the moment, and heftyApps's attempt is a worthwhile addition to the genre. Not far behind at #3 is Gemini Rue, yet another classic point-and-click adventure game that has successfully made the jump to iOS. This masterful sci-fi detective story has the critics hooked. In fifth spot, the maker of Badland takes one-button gameplay to all new levels of artistry. Featuring an enchanting silhouette art style and an enchanting world, Frogmind's game is a tactile delight. Finally, we have the much-anticipated sequel to an iOS great. Yes, in Cut the Rope: Time Travel we witness the return of the candy-chomping Om Nom. This time around, though, he's accompanied by a variety of time-displaced partners, which mixes up the physics-puzzling rather nicely.
As spring rolls on, we'll all be looking to the weather forecasts to pick out those warmer days. It's little wonder, then, that the slick, intuitive Yahoo! Weather utility tops the iPhone Qi app chart for April. Speaking of Yahoo!, down at #5 we have Flickring for Flickr, an unofficial but full-featured client for The Big Y's online photo service. Everypost takes the #6 slot, meanwhile, with its all-inclusive social network-sharing abilities. This app enables you to share content on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, and Tumblr simultaneously. Further down the leaderboard, we have NutriAid. Nope, it's not some vile energy drink recipe, but rather a simple and intuitive point plus diet aid.
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 iPhone games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the iPhone Quality Index now.
