With the announcement of the new iPad, Apple undoubtedly lengthened the already existent gap between its highly successful tablet and other competition due to the amount of substantial improvements that were announced. A retina display with pixels packed to the brim, a faster quad-core A5 processing chip, a new camera and more amounted to a huge day when the device was announced, evident by the now depleted supplies allotted to Apple's online store for preorder.
iPhone owners who simply can't get enough Star Wars on their iPhones will be happy to know that Star Wars: Trench Run [App Store, $4.99] has just hit the App Store.

Star Wars fans who were underwhelmed by THQ's last Star Wars title will be happy to hear that a new game, Star Wars: Trench Run, is coming soon to the App Store. Trench Run puts you in the seat of an X-Wing fighter pilot for the epic Death Star battle in Star Wars: Episode IV.
