Every day there are countless updates and releases across the App Store.

Despite Apple’s crackdown on “App Listing” apps, AppShopper has made its triumphant return to the App Store. The new app, AppShopper Social, brings social recommendations to the spotlight of the app, essentially requiring you to follow other’s “App Lists.” You can find friends easier by integrating your Twitter account. Let’s hope AppGratis eventually has the same luck.

It’s currently ad-supported, but a Pro account will remove ads and provide unlimited access to all the comics your little heart could desire.

As most probably know, apps aimed at children have a shoddy track record for employing not-so-subtle in-app purchase techniques. iPad children’s magazine Timbuktu was one of those apps. The company has now admitted that its previous ways were wrong, and has updated its app to provide a simpler subscription service. Tibuktu is a monthly magazine for children that provides a “wonderful reading experience.”

If you’re a fan of Fruit Ninja or Jetpack Joyride, you may want to pay attention to this one. I’m not going to bother explaining this one–the video above should document this release fairly well. If TouchArcade has given it good reviews, I highly recommend checking it out.
