What are iOS sports games?

Unlike fan apps like MLB.com At Bat, or NFL Mobile app -- which let you tune into games and catch live game updates -- with iOS sports apps, you participate in a game, at least digitally. In Madden NFL Mobile, for example, you're the coach and general manager: You pick your team, draft current players and legends, make transactions, play against friends, or join a league.

Can I share my iOS games with family?

Through Apple's Family Sharing program, you can share apps, music, and e-books with up to six family members, on iOS and MacOS devices. Use the same credit card for app purchases.

What is the difference between iOS's free-to-play and paid games?

In free-to-play games, the developer makes a basic collection of players or abilities available to everyone to play. Then, to add special players to your roster or give them special abilities, you make in-app purchases, which run from 99 cents to $99.99 per item. In paid games, you pay upfront to download and play, usually 99 cents to $9.99. While some paid games like Alto Adventure give you everything for one price, others -- such as NBA Jam -- offer in-app purchases to add players.
