Apple features new "Indie Game Showcase", and other news for March 21, 2014

Apple has rolled out a new section on the App Store called "Indie Game Showcase." It's dedicated to spotlighting stunning games by independent iOS developers. As Apple describes the new section:

Often made up of just a few dedicated members, independent studios prove that what really matters is the size of your dream. In each Indie Game Showcase, we celebrate a popular game and its creative team, highlighting the developer's titles along with their favorite games from other studios.

The move will no doubt be a welcome one for many independent developers who often feel that it's hard to compete against the might of bigger developers and the coverage -- and resulting spots on the top app charts -- they get.

The first game to be featured is Device 6, and action-thriller from developer Simogo.

In other news:

  • The redesigned Starbucks iPhone app has been released. It has had an iOS 7 makeover and offers digital tipping plus the ability to review rewards from the dashboard.
  • Apple has released an update for GarageBand which adds the option to export songs as an MP3.
  • Jony Ive is one of the 10 finalists for The Drum Design Award. You can vote for him to win if you want.
