Once again the British summer has proved to be a bit of a washout, and all of a sudden we're facing the final August Bank Holiday.

Predictably, in many place it's going to be rain (doesn't it always). However, to ensure you're not bored while you're stuck indoors, we've compiled a list of some of the most promising and interesting apps released this month on the iPhone and iPad. So without further ado, let's get started...

Madden NFL 2011

Availability: iPad and iPhone

Developer: Electronic Arts

Price: £4.99 for iPhone; £7.49 for iPad

Every August brings gaming fans a new version of EA's famous 'Madden' franchise, and this year is no different. What makes the newest version of Madden so notable is that it will now be available on the iPad for the first time. Hurray!

Fotopedia Heritage

Availability: iPad and iPhone

Developer: Fotonauts, Inc.

Price: Free

Our current recession-mired economy has led to an increase in 'staycations' as people can no longer afford to travel. But with Fotopedia you can travel virtually around the globe and look at pictures of world-famous sites. It may pale in comparison to actually being there, but this app does at least assure you'll be able to look at some nice scenery.
