It time to put on your shades, sunblock and other sun protection as summer has officially started. But before we hit the beach and spend quality time on the BBQ grill with family and friends in the backyard, lets steal a quick peak on the top five iPad apps that rocked the month of June. They are based on the number of shares they accumulated in Facebook. Here they are:
Sega has ported over a version of their hit racing game featuring Sonic and nine other Sega stars as an iPad app. This application has 25 missions to attempt based in three Grand Prix Cups. The graphics look great considering the original game is pretty old now, and obviously someone has been hard at work making this look extra nice, on the iPad especially. There are all the similar power ups, speed boasts and track trickery present, and as you progress you unlock new characters to play with. The game is responsive and sounds good too.

More and more obstacles get in your way to attempt to dismember Fred and you are awarded points for how ‘intact’ Fred is at the end of his fall.
