First the disclaimer: this is not the same Madden experience as you get from a console. Then again, try slipping an Xbox 360 into your pocket. Available for iPhone/iPod Touch ($7.99), iPad ($12.99) and BlackBerry ($6.99), the 2010 edition of the Big John's eponymous game has the expected annual refresh, complete with Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees shouldering this year's Madden curse. It's loaded with features (a streamlined version would be an improvement given the screen real estate) and the perfect diversion when you're ready to get off the sidelines and get into the game. And EA also offers NCAA Football for the iPhone/iPod Touch ($6.99), if college pigskin is more your game.
