Apple’s assuredly making phones with bigger screen sizes, and ahead of that, its ads are getting bigger too. Today the company announced two new ad formats for developers as part of its iAd platform: full-screen interstitial banner ads, and pre-roll videos. Both are designed to take over the entire screen while using an app, and bring developers higher revenue than they’d get with smaller, less intrusive banner ads.

A Double P Review: Vector is a pretty awesome parkour game for mobile devices. The game is an “auto-runner” meaning that the screen will move from left to right without any input from you. Your goal is to out run the “man” who is chasing you down. During your escape you will have to free run over obstacles and gaps to keep your distance. The animations for the runner look amazing in Vector. There is an option to pay for more levels but the free version will at least give you a taste of the overall game.
