The long-awaited Jetpack Joyride 1.3 update is here. We’ve been teasing it for months now, but now it’s finally available. Yes, the world can now finally use gadgets in order to help get higher scores. Hang out near the top too much? Use the Gravity Belt to help fall faster, though they may make it more difficult to stay up in the air. Want to travel farther at the end of a game? Then use Insta-Ball to bounce around in a ball after death. Really, really hate those scientists? Use Nerd Repellant to replace them with cobwebs and tumbleweeds. Want to make more money? Use the Gemology gadget to enable special gems worth extra coins that pop up in the coin formations. Certain gadget combinations have special names to them: Insta-Ball plus Gravity Belt equals Serious Bounce, for example.

The update also features a nice tweak for frequent users of the cloud save functionality, as the game now says when and from what device the cloud save is from, assuming that doesn’t match the current device’s save file. It’s a nice addition designed to make picking the more advanced save easier. The free update is available now.

Stuff Magazine Now on iPad

Best-selling gadget magazine Stuff now has an iPad edition. Stuff Magazine, like most iPad magazine apps, is a Newstand app that’s free to download but charges for individual issues and subscriptions.

Stuff Magazine includes the same tests, photography, and expert opinions on the newest tech toys and gadgets, but the iPad edition includes new interactive features that are exclusive to the iPad magazine. The new digital magazine includes hands-on videos, 360-degree photography, Twitter feeds within the magazine, animations, and photo galleries.

Subscribers to the print version of the magazine will also have free access to Stuff Magazine. New subscribers can also just subscribe in the app itself. The prices listed in the app description are in British pounds. But from what I can glean from the top in-app purchases, the magazine costs $4.99 (£2.99) for an individual issues, $11.99 (£7.99) for three months, $19.99 (£13.99) for six months, and $33.99 (£23.99) for a year.
