If there’s one thing you need to know about FTL, it’s that it’s a fantastic game. A very close second thing you really need to know is that it’s about as unforgiving as that one extremely tough grade-school teacher that never gave anyone a break. Don’t play innocent, we’ve all had one.

So, while we here at 148Apps wholeheartedly endorse you rushing to the App Store to purchase FTL for your iPad immediately (seriously, go do it if you haven’t already), we also understand that you may have some trouble starting out. Or just in general. That’s why we’ve put together a list of tips, tricks, and strategies to hopefully keep your ship and your crew functioning that much longer. Due to the random nature of sector layouts, encounters, and shop inventories there’s no way to guarantee success, but we’re certainly going to do our best for you.

Corel Inc. has launched its premium video editing app, Pinnacle Studio for iPhone.

The app allows one to access all the media on one's iPhone, and to start creative projects. Also, more media can be captured via the app itself, and projects can be transferred between the iPhone and the iPad via AirDrop. Storyboarding has also been made easy and seamless.

Pinnacle product development chief Michel Yavercovski promises users won't have to settle for pared-down functionality on mobile devices. “Pinnacle Studio is the ideal app for anyone looking for true video editing power on their iPhone," he says. "Unlike other mobile video editing apps, Pinnacle Studio doesn’t make you sacrifice features and control just because you’re editing on your iPhone. For the first time, you can enjoy sophisticated anywhere, anytime movie-making capabilities, right in your pocket.”

Additionally, Corel has updated the iPad version of the app, rebuilding it for iOS 7 and offering a redesigned UI and 64-bit power processing.

The new Pinnacle Studio for iPhone app is available on the App Store for $9.99.

Space Hulk is adventure enough by itself (at least according to our review), but the iPad game's latest update includes a new expansion pack called Space Wolves - adding an entirely new campaign and other features to the original game.

Space Wolves includes the "Fangs of Fenris" campaign, which is made up of 3 completely new missions set in a "cool and chilly environment." Along with the missions, Space Wolves also comes with 11 new unique terminators, brutal new weapons such as the Frost Axe and Wolf Claw, and new skills Murderous Lighting and Hurricane that come via a "Runepriest." Additionally, the expansion includes new "chapter specific rules," attempting to add an entirely new dimension to the game.

GIVEAWAY: We've got four copies of KOTOR to give away! Share/retweet this post on Twitter to be eligible to win. We will send out codes to the winners on Wednesday.

Heads-up, Jedi masters! It's just been confirmed that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is getting a very substantial update. How substantial, you ask?

First and foremost, it's going Universal. So if you don't have an iPad and have been using anything including a 5th Gen iPod Touch or an iPhone 4S and above, good news! The interface is also being tweaked so that the text will display better on smaller devices, and it's even going to support widescreen formats for the iPhone 5 and 5s! In addition, many of the graphical elements such as lighting and shadows are being dressed up for devices using the new A7 processor (iPad Air, Retina Mini, iPhone 5s). There have also been rumblings of MFi controller support, although it's still considered to be in the experimental stages.

So when is all this going to be available? Really, really soon. Like this week soon. If the stars align, the update will go live this Thursday, December 19.
