Apple has sent out invitations for its March event and while everyone speculates or checks out leaks for the new iPad and iPhone, there have been many interesting updates and releases this past week. Here are the notable app and game updates and releases of the week:
Ulysses Mobile 2.5 for iOS
Ulysses is already one of the best writing tools available today and with version 2.5, the app went universal. This is a free update and Ulysses is now on iPhones as well. The developers did a great job with the interface and it is a joy to use even on the smaller screen. I hope they add support for Dropbox syncing because it is a near perfect app.

Wikipedia Mobile 5.0 for iOS
The official Wikipedia app on iOS got a huge update that brought a new interface and whole set of new features and tweaks. Wikipedia Mobile 5.0 lets you quickly browse the top read articles, picture of the day, recommended articles, and more. Your saved articles even show up in Spotlight Search.

Waze 4.0 for Android
We all know how useful Waze is as a GPS and traffic app. With version 4.0 it got a fresh coat of paint that made navigation easier as well. Getting things done within Waze is much quicker with fewer taps and this update reduces battery usage which is always appreciated.

There's also a new interface and a nice looking icon in this update.
