Get all the sports news you can handle, about any sport you’re interested in, with the help of news aggregator Sports Republic. The app brings in sports news about all different topics from all over the world and its content is built to your specifications. Following that is DocSync.net, an app that lets you search through various document locations like your computer and Google Docs, and sync them to your iPad. Razor: Salvation puts you in a turret and asks you to defend humanity from alien invaders, while Bee Leader is about gathering nectar for your hive before the sun does down each day.

Sports Republic (iPhone, iPad) Free

News aggregator Sports Republic pulls stories about all kinds of different sports from around the world, allowing fans to stay up-to-date on everything from futbol to football, from golf to hockey. With the Olympic Games coming up in July, it’s a good time to snag Sports Republic and keep up with everything about all the sports that interest you.

The app lets you create your own “channels” of content by searching for specific terms, like an athlete’s or team’s name, or an entire sport. You can create multiple channels and sync the app over the Internet to have Sports Republic gather stories about them. You can also share stories and leave comments, search for specific topics, and receive push notifications when new stories come in.

DocSync.net (iPad) Free

Bringing documents from your computer to your iPad is the function of DocSync.net, allowing users to access documents saved on their PCs or Macs, or even on file servers and clouds such as DropBox or Google Docs. It allows you to access image files, PDFs, Office documents and more from your tablet, as long as you have an Internet connection.

DocSync.net also lets you save your documents locally so you can look through them when you don’t have an Internet connection, and includes a search function for quickly looking through everything you have for something specific. You can also create projects through the app and save them to various places, like your cloud drives.

Razor: Salvation (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Aliens have invaded Earth, and it’s your job to provide cover fire so survivors can escape in Razor: Salvation. You play a soldier manning a turret as aliens flood the area from all directions, spinning around in order to shoot at aliens as they come at you and utilizing lots of different weapons to defend yourself.

Razor also includes something of a multiplayer element that allows you to create “factions” with your friends and compete at a group to take the top slots on Razor’s Game Center leaderboards. It also packs iCloud syncing and dynamic enemies that take cover behind objects and make it tougher for you to kill them.

Bee Leader (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Side-scroller Bee Leader is about gathering nectar to make honey. Oh, and you’re a bee – that’s the main part. In the role of a bee, you’ll hover over flowers, grab nectar out of the air, and recruit other smaller bees to your cause. They’ll help you gather more nectar as you fly around in each level; as the sun goes down, you’ll need to double back to your hive and drop off your honey in order to score points.
