Spark gets iPad & watchOS 2 support, Ubisoft launches Assassin's Creed IdentityReaddle on Thursday updated its Spark email client for iOS with several new features, including iPad and watchOS 2 compatibility, while Ubisoft launched Assassin's Creed Identity, the first iOS title in the Assassin's Creed series with full freedom of movement.
Spark's iPad interface displays multiple panes onscreen simultaneously, making it easier to see read and navigate messages. Device support extends to the iPad Pro.
Accordingly the update also offers cross-platform sync, ensuring that a person's inbox will remain consistent. watchOS 2 support, meanwhile, means that the Apple Watch app is now native and considerably faster.
New languages mean that in addition to English, the app supports German, Chinese, Russian, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, and Portuguese.
Spark is a free download for any device with iOS 8.3 or later.
Assassin's Creed Identity
Identity brings the series back to the Italian Renaissance, and lets players create a custom character in one of four classes, progressing through ranks by completing quests. Gamers can also customize their character with different outfits and weapons.
On top of introducing RPG elements, Identity is also the first Assassin's Creed game to offer total freedom of movement on iOS. Traditionally, the limited graphics and controls of iOS devices has restricted such gameplay to the Windows and console titles in the series. iOS players can use either a gamepad or onscreen controls.
Identity costs $4.99, and requires only iOS 7 or later, though performance may suffer on older hardware. In-app coin/credit purchases cost between $1.99 and $24.99 in the real world.
