The iPad version of Pinterest's iOS app received an iOS 7-style redesign, as well as updated navigation and discovery features. Users can now access their profile and notifications from menu along the bottom of the display, and the same menu will also show the users' most recent pinboards.

Additionally, a long press on a board will now bring up a new sharing and discovery overlay, enabling users to quickly share the board with friends or to see related boards.

Pinterest version 3.3 is available now as a free, 31.0-megabyte download from the App Store.

Steam Mobile

Valve's Steam Mobile iOS app, which brings Steam's chat and community features as well as access to the Steam Store, has been updated with a new, flatter user interface that brings the app closer to Apple's updated design language. Users can also take advantage of Steam chat while offline, with messages synchronized to Steam's cloud once the user reconnects.

The app's notification support has been upgraded, with what Valve says are improvements to push notifications and icon badging. Additionally, the friend interface has been revamped, with invitations moved to a separate screen in the app and changes to the workflow for responding to invites.

In addition, Valve promises updated iconography, better integration with Facebook, better stability, and performance enhancements.

Steam Mobile version 1.3 is available now as a 7.0-megabyte download from the App Store.

GTA San Andreas

GTA: San Andreas

Three weeks after its announcement, the third installment of Rockstar's blockbuster Grand Theft Auto franchise, GTA: San Andreas, has made its App Store debut. The app sports remastered, high-resolution graphic, a longer draw distance, an enriched color palette, and enhanced 3D models.

Rockstar also equipped GTA: San Andreas with support for Made for iPhone game controllers, like Logitech's PowerShell. The game gains dynamic detailed shadows and real-time environmental reflections when run on an iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPad 4, or iPad Air.

Cloud save support is baked in, along with dual analog controls for camera and movement control. All control schemes can be customized, and the app maintains the ability to listen to custom playlists.

Grant Theft Auto: San Andreas is compatible with iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPod Touch 5th gen, iPad 2, 3rd and 4th gen, iPad Air, iPad Mini and iPad Mini with Retina Display.

The game is available now as a hefty 1.63-gigabyte, $9.99 download from the App Store.

    It's nice to see an update to the Steam app, but chat/store access comes across as trivial on a device like the iPad.

    Meanwhile, a Windows 8.1 tablet can actually run Steam and a number of the games on the store.

    I don't know what Valve has planned for the future, but right now ARM based devices do not seem to be getting the attention they need.

    Great. Maybe we can get GTA V on the iPhone by the year 2023.

    When I click the link I get a message telling me "The item you've requested is not currently available in the UK Store, but it is available in the New Zealand Store. Click Change Store to view this item."....

    I know San Andreas support the new external games controllers - has anyone used or seen any screenshots of the new on screen touch controls as these were a pain to use in Vice City and GTA III.

    By then, iOS devices will have TB's of memory and storage.
