The Amazing Spider Man
Yeah, it's $6.99 but it's a great game that Gameloft appears to of have spent a lot of time on. Unlike some of the other 'movie based' junk out there. If you're looking to play it on your phone, don't. However, if you have a tablet make sure you add this one to your list. The game is simple, you're Spiderman.. fight the bad guys save the city. Simple... right? [Download from PandaApp]
Google Earth (Free)
OK, OK -- maybe I'm cheating just a little bit by choosing a Google app as my weekly pick. But the fact is that Google Earth has undergone such a major change in the recent version 7.0 update that it's definitely worth a second look. The biggest change, of course, is the new support for 3D buildings and terrain, starting with twelve European and American cities -- you'll see San Francisco in the screenshot above. And in order to highlight this, Google's programmed several virtual tours into the Earth, allowing you to take in a quick fly-by view of various landmarks in the area.
Bear in mind you'll need a fairly powerful device (and a speedy Internet connection) to handle the downloading and rendering of all this 3D stuff. That said, if you've got a newer device like the HTC One X or Galaxy S III, you're sure to be in four a real visual treat.
Google Earth, as ever, is available for free from the Google Play Store. [Download from Google Play]
