May has been an aeronautical month for fans of the iPhone gaming scene. The festering 'charm' of endless-flyer Zombie Ace helped it soar to the top of the Qi chart over the past four weeks, proving there’s life to be found in the genre yet - even if your game’s protagonists are, well, dead. Meanwhile, Frontier Developments's LostWinds 2: Winter of the Melodias has been sweeping critics off their feet with its unique combination of platforming and elemental manipulation, both of which have propelled it straight into third place. And demonstrating that the postal system CAN be efficient (and fun), delivery-themed biplane game Air Mail is circling the #4 spot, arriving just in time to take iOS gamers on another entertaining flight of fancy.

The top Qi scoring apps are an eclectic bunch this month, ranging from the helpful to the downright insulting. Trollywood is both a rage comic generator and a friend-provoking assistant, allowing you to craft your own tale of incomparable anger, or simply stick an amusing face on a photo of your pal. If you’re looking for something a little more practical, mind, Curly’s pocket guide to... contains 72 cards packed with sporting info, meaning you’ll never confuse a hole-in-one with a slam dunk again. Finally, medical professionals with an iPhone in their scrubs should find that GPLogBook is the perfect salve for a hectic schedule, providing an easy way to keep track of important records and events.

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  iPhone Quality Index  now.
