Well, 2018 has come to an end. Have you checked out our big list of the best games that came out this year? If you haven't you can do that by clicking here. It's been a brilliant year for mobile gaming, but now it's time to put it to bed and look to the future.

And that's what we're going to be doing in January - looking ahead to all the awesome iPhone and iPad games we're all going to be playing for the next 12 months. That's just the tip of the iceberg though - we've got some big plans for 2019, and we're really excited to be able to share them with you over the next few months. Seriously, it's going to rock.

So let's raise a glass and toast not just to the end of one of the most exciting years that the mobile gaming community has ever seen, but to 2019 being every bit as special as 2018 was. Join us back here tomorrow, January 2nd, when we're going to be starting the new year with a massive bang.

Happy New Year to all of our readers! We had a great end to 2011 across all of the 148Apps sites. At our flagship 148Apps.com site, writers Rob LeFebvre and Carter Dotson posted a series of articles counting down the "Favorite 50" apps and games of 2011. The lists cover every genre and type imaginable, but if you want to cut to the quick, take a look at the top five apps or the top five games. Whether you agree or disagree with our decisions, we feel sure you'll discover a few new apps along the way.

Over at GiggleApps, writer Amy Solomon continued her mission to review the best new apps for children by reviewing Kids Food Adventure. Solomon writes, "Kids Food Adventure is a very nice universal app that is geared towards encouraging children to try new foods.

The foods included in the application can be searched by season, as one can look at a calendar where each month of the year has seven foods that are in season, and I like how one can pre-select an area of the world – be it North America or Europe – to make the food selections offered, which are accurate in terms of seasonal availability."

Finally, on AndroidRundown, Carter Dotson commented on why Android phones currently have OnLive, while iOS users are still out in the cold. Dotson says, "So, here we are, two weeks later, and OnLive is still only on Android. It was announced to be released for iOS along with the Android version, but no real reason has been given as to the delay of the iOS version, beyond that Apple is still examining it for approval.
Without firsthand knowledge of the process, I can only assume that Apple is not likely to approve it because it will not fit their policies. See, OnLive’s client is all cloud-based; even the interface and menus to choose games are streamed from their servers. This also means that buying new games comes from operations occuring on their servers."
