Now Rates iPad Games and Apps

By , on March 19, 2012

There's been no shortage of good news for iPad fans lately - what with the launch of a brand-new Retina display-equipped iPad and the iPad 2's price drop.

But, here's another piece of positive news for lovers of the Apple slate. Courtesy of some friends of ours.

Steel Media, the publishing house behind Pocket Gamer and AppSpy, have launched an iPad section of, the site dedicated to condensing critical opinion from the best sources into one definitive score.

The iPhone Quality index - which has been highlighting the top titles on the App Store for over 18 months - already tracks more than 430,000 games and apps for Apple's super smartphone, utilising more than 195,000 review scores from print and online sources to deliver a single definitive Qi rating.

And although it's only just launched, the iPad Quality Index isn't too far behind: at the time of writing, it's tracking 100,000 apps and games, and contains over 40,000 iPad-specific app reviews.

So, if you've spotted an App Store curio, mulled it over for a while, and still aren't quite sure if you can justify spending $4.99 on Cut the Angry Bird Rope Joyride, just point your browser towards for a dose of condensed critical opinion.

As soon as you've checked the AppSpy review first, of course.
