While airplanes are still having trouble traveling from one side of the pond to the other, apps can still come from both sides of the pond at the speed of download. Whether it's cooking or singing, playing or parking, this week brings the iTunes App Store plenty of new and notable apps. Here's a sampling, after the break!
