+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

World Chef is a brand new resource management game by SocialPoint, the experienced developer behind Dragon City and Monster Legends.

You'll create and manage every aspect of your own restaurant, from naming it to hiring professional chefs. Then, once you've turned a profit, you can use it to purchase decorations and hire the most talented chefs from across the world.

Chefs will trade the finest ingredients with their friends, which unlocks brand new dishes you can serve to your customers. Satisfy these and your restaurant's fame will increase which can, eventually, lead to visits from esteemed celebrities.

Develop a rapport with these celebrities and you can hold an exclusive party for them in your dedicated event space - the pool-party area.

If you find yourself running low on resources, you can connect with your friends on Facebook, Game Center, or Google Play Services, and trade ingredients to give you a boost.

To date, a fair few restaurant simulators have had a time management focus where you're trying to serve as many customers as possible to a strict time limit. That's not the focus of World Chef though. It's, instead, all about creating the most prestigious restaurant you can.

If you've got a hankering to build your own restaurant, why not check out World Chef. It's available from the App Store [download] or Google Play [download]right now.

The best reading app on mobile

Posted by Jennifer Allen on January 21st, 2016

Reading on the move is a great way to spend some time and feel like you’re doing something fun or productive.

While you can stick to tried-and-true solutions like a book or Kindle, there are easier options out there - and you can find all of them on your mobile.

Read on to discover the best reading apps on mobile.

The best

Somewhat predictably, you can’t really beat Amazon’s Kindle app. The store offers access to more than three million books, as well as many audiobooks and exclusive titles.

You can also read newspapers and magazines - as well as customise the experience so it looks exactly how you want. What more could you need?

The rest

Apple’s own solution, iBooks, is pretty good. You can easily browse through extensive content and purchase books using your iTunes credit.

You can choose from seven fonts and three choices of page color, plus it’s easy to bookmark and highlight favorite sections of the text.

Not quite a reading tool but essential nonetheless, Goodreads is a social network for book fans. You can keep track of what you’re reading, view personalized recommendations, and see what your friends are reading too.

Options for writing book reviews are also available and it’s great for when you need motivation to read more, or simply want to discover something new.

Not in the mood for reading but want to hear a story? Audiobooks from Audible is the audiobooks equivalent of Kindle and iBooks.

You can easily explore the catalogue of over 180,000 titles before choosing to listen to one wherever you go. Even if you’re on the treadmill at the gym, you can listen to a story unfold, and the app does a great job of saving your place at all times.
