iPhone Quality Index

Qi's Top 10 iPhone games and apps of August 2012

Most critically acclaimed titles on Quality Index for the month

It's not too hard to find the bestselling titles on the App Store, but what about the highest-quality examples?

The Quality Index (or Qi, for short) trawls the web for game and app reviews from the world's most respected online and print sources, including 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, Slide To Play, and iPhone App Directory.

Qi then collates the critiques, applies a magic formula, and delivers a single definitive Qi score for each iPhone game and app.

Links to all the individual reviews are included, too, for those readers wanting more detail.

In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, Qi rounds up the Top 10 iPhone games and Top 10 iPhone apps released each month.

Here is August 2012's critically acclaimed selection...
