Figure out the next live event you’re going to be attending with ScoreBig Daily, today’s leading Fresh iPhone App, which lets users make offers on tickets and try to name their own prices. Video gamers will find some use for EA Battlelog, today’s second app, which lets players keep up with their Battlefield 3 multiplayer friends even when they’re not in the game. A big update to Mass Effect Infiltrator kicks off today’s games, followed by physics puzzler, Got Cow?, in which players have to use gravity to complete each level.

ScoreBig Daily (iPhone, iPad) Free

Find yourself something to do this week at a discount with the help of ScoreBig Daily, an app that works to help users find discount tickets to live shows wherever they are. You can use the app to find last-minute tickets, and you’re able to use ScoreBig to name your own price on tickets.

The service works by letting you search for tickets for the thing you want to attend, ranging from live music to sporting events. Once you find what you’re looking for, you can name your price, because you’re actually buying the ticket from someone else in the community. If your offer is accepted the ticket is yours; if it’s not, you’ll be unable to offer another bid for three hours, so choose wisely.

EA Battlelog taps into the full Battlefield 3 Battlelog system in real time, so it allows you to see what your friends are up to at any given time. It also gives you updates as to what they’re accomplishing, showing you when they unlock weapons and other add-ons for the game and allowing you to leave comments. You can also view the full Battlefield 3 leaderboards from within the app and compare your abilities to other players all over the world.

Mass Effect Infiltrator update (iPhone, iPad) $4.99

The mobile tie-in to Mass Effect 3, Mass Effect Infiltrator, didn’t do so hot in terms of reviews when it first launched. The game uses an aiming system that many reviewers found lacking, rather than standard third-person shooter controls. Electronic Arts, it seems, listened to the criticisms, and has issued a whole new gameplay system as part of the latest big update to Mass Effect Infiltrator.

In addition to a new, more traditional system for fighting enemies, the update to Mass Effect Infiltrator throws in a bunch of new content. There’s now an entire new level for players to work through, which includes a new character and a new way of playing the game.

Got Cow? (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Physics puzzler Got Cow? isn’t too different from the many other puzzlers out there that use gravity wells and a space setting to give players engaging puzzles – even Angry Birds has ventured into the territory – but the game is still a lot of fun to play and filled with solid gravity-defying puzzles. Your goal in each level is to defend interplanetary cows by firing missiles at UFOs. In order to take them all down, you need to use gravity to assist your aim.

As you play through Got Cow?, you’ll collect coins that allow you to buy special upgrades and items. You’ll need them, as apart from gravity wells and planetoids, you’ll also face asteroids and black holes that will obstruct your progress. The game includes 60 levels of puzzles to play through, and also packs Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards.
