Image Gallery: GTS World Racing on the Apple iPhone

Astraware has been developing games for the Palm and Windows Mobile operating systems for several years and they are famous for their high quality and enjoyable games. I was pleased to see them launch an iPhone application that takes advantage of the accelerometers in the device and think you may enjoy this car racing game as well.
