May 05, 2012, 4:00 PM — Eat, drink, and be Harry! This week's roundup of iOS apps features new ways to travel, make cocktails, and play games as your favorite Hogwarts wizard.
Already this week, we brought you news of Spotify's revamped--and newly iPad-optimized--music-listening app; the launch of the new Decide price-comparison app; and two App Guides featuring the best of recently updated games and weather forecasting apps.

Here are other new and updated apps that caught our eye this week.
Food Network on TV: This free iPhone app is actually a relaunch of the offering formerly known as Food Network Nighttime. The old app was mostly a multimedia guide to the network's on-air schedule--featuring some video clips--but Food Network on TV goes further to satisfy the appetites of its voracious fans, offering popular full-length episodes to digest, as well as a portal to the network's blog and Twitter feeds for those of you who need between-show snacks. Bon appétit!
Food & Wine Cocktails: If you need just the right alcoholic beverage to go with the meal the Food Network app inspired you to make, never fear: Food & Wine magazine has launched its new Food & Wine Cocktails app for the iPhone. The app includes recipes for more than 350 drinks, as well as a "definitive" guide to the country's top 100 bars and lounges. Now you'll be ready to try making your very own Screaming Viking, instead of ordering it at your local watering hole. That's the spirit!
