Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.
I have always had a soft spot for Spyro the little purple dragon, and I love the latest game, Skylanders. It's so cool; not only is it super fun to play, but its cross-platform compatibility is also awesome; you have PlayStation, Xbox and Wii games, and the toys can be used on all three; then there's the3DS game, and the internet game, and now there's Cloud Patrol for iOS. You basically fly around in a zeppelin shooting trolls, sheep, balloons and presents, and collecting coins, gems and points as you go. To keep everything from getting boring, you have objectives to complete in order to level up — such as shooting 20 sheep, say, or collecting 2000 coins. It's an excellent expansion of the Skylanders universe, and hours of fun.
