Get your fix on concerts even if you can’t attend them with Qello, an app that streams recordings of shows straight to your iOS device. It just got a big update that brings some useful improvements, as well as new features. We’ve also got a pair of quality games for you: Up first is Metal Slug 3, a side-scrolling shooter, followed by Goal Defense, a tower defense title with a sports theme.

Qello – Watch HD Music Concerts update (iPhone, iPad) Free

You can’t always get to the concerts you want to see, so Qello brings the concerts to you. The app allows you to stream video and music from all kinds of different shows; you can get tracks from each show featured for free, or invest in an “All-Access” subscription to get full concerts streamed to your iPhone or iPad.

Qello’s latest update adds a newly redesigned user interface, plus additional Facebook integration that makes it easier to share the things you like in Qello with other users. There’s also a New Releases section that’s been added to the app which makes it easier to find new things and push notifications, as well as lots of bug fixes to make the app run better in general.

Metal Slug 3 (iPhone, iPad) $6.99

The well-loved Neo-Geo title Metal Slug 3 has jumped to iOS devices, using virtual controls and bringing all the side-scrolling action that made the original such a hit. Players take on the role of one of four soldiers who must blast away at hordes of enemies, ranging from robot crabs to zombies. You’ll also snag power-ups and weapons along the way to make yourself even more powerful.

The new Metal Slug 3 includes the classic arcade mode that the original sported, as well as a new mission-based mode in which players can work through different levels and practice on the ones that give them trouble. The game also includes Bluetooth functionality so you can play cooperatively with friends.

Goal Defense (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Tower defense gets a sports-based spin in Goal Defense, a game in which a group of weakling athletes have to defend a huge trophy from a parade of awful jocks. Players find themselves on a football field that has a hexagonal grid laid over it, allowing them to assign defenders to different spots in order to force enemies along certain paths and take them down.

You’ll get access to lots of different classes of athletes to serve as your defenders, and you’ll also be able to upgrade them over time in Goal Defense to make them more powerful. Goal Defense includes 40 levels to work through, plus Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards to see how you stack up against other players.
