That Pokedex app we were talking about last month has appeared on worldwide on the App Store as a Universal app. With an initial purchase, you'll get access to every Pokemon available across the "Unova region" in the games. Additional $5.99 purchases unlock all the other regions. There's a total of four other regions, to be a little more specific...

Yup, The Pokemon Company has released an official Pokedex app across iPhone and iPad on the Japanese App Store. It's not a "new" app, mind; people are saying that this is a port Pokedex 3D Pro, which landed on Nintendo 3DS this July in the Japan. The iOS version is a paid app with in-game purchases...

The Call of Duty Elite app [Free] has been updated with Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 support. Now, you can track your career stats, recent matches, customize your classes, and follow your challenge progression from the app, provided you link either your XBL or PSN profiles to the service. Steam integration, unfortunately, is still not a thing for whatever reason...

In December of last year, Microsoft released the official My Xbox Live app which allowed Xbox Live members to use their iOS device to do things like view friends lists and achievements, send messages to friends, or mess with your avatar. It was pretty cool, though kind of limited, but for a free download it was worth having for Xbox Live enthusiasts...

Out of the box, Gearbox Software's Borderlands 2 has robust mapping functionality that clearly displays the layouts of a given area.

It hasn't been hard to get into the Steam Mobile beta, but if you couldn't for some reason here's some good news: Steam Mobile [Free] is now accessible to anyone with an actual Steam account...

Getting lost to Arkane Studios' Dishonored is a problem. For example, instead of writing up this post immediately, we've been playing Dishonored. But getting lost in the game will never be a problem; Its official map app, which displays just about anything you could want, has us covered pretty well...

My Xbox Live [Free] on iPad just got a lot more useful overnight...

Better late than never: the official companion app for Red Storm's Ghost Recon Future Soldier, Ghost Recon Network [Free], is now out and available on the App Store. With it, you can modify your weapon loadouts, check online stats, and even fiddle with your Squad stuff without having to touch the proper game. In a later update, you'll be able to do even more, including check friends' stats and access Challenges. Sweet, right?..
