All you need to do is update to version 2.5.8416 of the current app, and you will be able to use your account to play on your iPod touch (fift-generation), iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC.

Blackrock Mountain: Blackrock Spire

The third wing of Blackrock Mountain titled "Blackrock Spire" also opened on Thursday. Players can unlock the new wing for 700 in-game gold or $6.99 USD. Here's the official description:

"Blackrock Spire honeycombs the heights of Blackrock Mountain, and serves as the first line of defense against those who would dare intrude on Blackwing’s domain. Nefarian’s forces now occupy the former Dark Iron dwarf citadel, where you’ll find the likes of ogres, orcs, and dragonspawn patrolling its halls."

The three Blackrock Spire bosses are Highlord Omokk, General Drakkisath and Rend Blackhand.

Cyclop iPad Edition ($24.99)

New iPad Apps April 2015

Cyclop now available on the iPad – ready to unleash monstrous bass sounds to the mobile world.

Cyclop is a monophonic synthesizer. It does one thing very well: delivering cutting-edge digital madness at the low end of the frequency spectrum.

Cyclop is the master of subs, beautifully controlling even the lowest notes, always sounding stomach-rumblingly thick. It uses mid/side processing to introduce stereo imaging between 250Hz and 4kHz. This ensures wide, interesting sounds that retain their punch and bass. There are no phasing issues, which means Cyclop cuts through the mix very nicely.

Enjoy an incredible depth of sound design possibilities, great real-time control with the Wobble Knob and FX knob. Integrated effects sequencer, vast modulation system and the preset browser will take your inspiration to new levels.

The interface has been improved for touch performance and the overall cpu usage has been reduced.

- Monophonic Bass Synthesizer
- 6x2 Synthesiser Engines, 10x2 Filter Engines
- Analog Sync, FM, Sample Transformer, Spectromat, Saw Regiment, Phase Stressor
