What's new on the App Store: Showtime goes cable-free, new puzzle games, Comic-Con

This week on the App Store, Showtime has launched a brand new app for their standalone streaming service. There's also ChefsFeed, a new app for local restaurant recommendations. Disney has launched Shout, a new guessing game for kids. The Washington Post has also launched an all-new, overhauled version of its app.

To lead off this week's new games, we have Nono Islands, an island-hopping adventure game. There's also Find-the-Line, a new puzzle game from Chillingo in which you uncover hidden images. Alphabear is another puzzle game, where you search for bears by solving word puzzles. Finally, The Mesh is a number game that challenges you to unlock the 12 animals of the ancient zodiac.

The App Store is ready for Comic-Con, highlighting apps centered around comics and superheroes. For those going to Comic-Con itself, be sure to download the official Comic-Con app. Comic book fans should not be without the official apps from Marvel, DC, and others so they can get their comics digitally. You can also make your own, with apps like Halftone 2 and Comic Touch bringing out the artist in you. Finally, games like LEGO Batman, Marvel Future Fight, and Injustice: Gods Among Us will put you in the shoes (and cape) of a superhero.

Remember to check out all of the new apps and games on the store, and come back to let us about your favorites.
