New iPad Games and Apps of the Week: Disney Infinity Toy Box 3.0 and more

Disney Infinity: Toy Box 3.0

In all the time I've been doing these App Store recaps I have never seen so few releases. I'm not sure why developers took the week off, maybe it had something to do with iOS 9, or the XcodeGhost malware scare. Whatever it was there were no major iPad releases and very few universal releases this week.

Pixelmator was updated to version 2.1 with multitasking and 8K resolution. The image editing app is also still only $4.99 on the App Store.

Here's a look at this week's noteworthy App Store releases for 09/20/15 to 09/26/15. Don't forget to check out our App Store recap every Saturday for all the weekly releases, jailbreak tweaks, App Store news and important app updates.
