What's new on the App Store: Fullscreen, Spellbinders, and apps for Mother's Day

We start our look at new apps this week with Fullscreen, which offers original digital shows and films for $4.99 per month after a month-long trial. Sago Mini Robot Party lets you build your own animated cupcake-making robots. Jelly, which lets you get informed answers from real people on a wide range of topics, has relaunched its app for iPhone. Finally, CNN has launched a new app focused entirely on political news.

Games this week start with Spellbinders, a new fantasy-themed online battle arena game. Egz is a new title that seeks to marry platforming action with an animated movie. If you've ever had fantasies of riding a massive, gun-strapped tortoise into battle, you're going want to check out War Tortoise. You can also check out the latest entry in the Angry Birds family of games, Angry Birds Action, which puts a mad, avian spin on pinball.
