During the past few years, I’ve grown obsessed with Twitter clients for the iPhone. The number of quality Twitter apps for the iPhone dwarfs those available on other platforms. For many, myself included, Tweetie had been my tweet weapon of choice. After Twitter bought Atebits, I transitioned to the official Twitter app, which was essentially an upgraded version of Tweetie. Great features and at the always fantastic price of free. Now under the corporate branch of Twitter, there have been some questionable decisions regarding features (see Quick Bar) and you have to wonder just how long before they introduce another […]
Tiny Wings is a game which, with likeness to Angry Birds or Cut the Rope, has taken the App Store by storm! You’re job is basically to control a bird who, as the game title aptly suggests, has very small wings, and thus cannot fly. However, by using hills as slopes and ramps, the poor bird can, with your help, reach dizzying heights before the cruel reality of gravity returns it to the ground. But here comes the twist – you’re being chased by night! That’s right, you have from sunrise to sunset to get as far as you can, […]
So, you have an iDevice and would like to take advantage of a Bluetooth keyboard. Well, there are options, but not as many as you would think. Plus, costs vary from product to product. Here are a few things to consider when looking for the best Bluetooth keyboard for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Tomorrow, Apple will host an event to announce the forthcoming release of the new and improved iPad. If prognosticators are correct, the new iPad will see modest improvements throughout in addition to either one or two cameras. It will be billed as, all the things people love about the original iPad, but better. It comes at a time when tablets are the new battleground. CES 2011 saw a bevy of manufacturers launching or announcing tablets for release this year. The most significant is probably the Motorola Xoom, which went on sale last week. The Xoom is the first tablet to […]
The whole premise behind the game GrimJoggers is bizarre to say the least. You lead a group of 15 joggers as far as possible in attempt to avoid an assortment of brutal deaths by way of spikes, man eating plants, cliffs and more. It’s an arcade-style survival game with online leader boards and achievements. The developers describe the game as “jogging becomes Bloodsport”. Anything that includes a reference to Jan Claude Van Damme movies is ok in our book, but is GrimJoggers worth the price of admission.
Any proper cable TV junkie will tell you that searching for your favorite programs via the remote provided by the cable company is a tedious process. Flipping through endless screens and spending 10 minutes to type in “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives” just to realize you missed an “i” somewhere in there is enough to drive a couch potato crazy and send objects rocketing toward walls. But Comcast’s new Xfinity TV app for the iPhone held promises of easing this process a bit, by allowing subscribers to view and search TV listings on their iPhones instead, even going as far as […]
One of the highly touted features in iOS 4.2 is the ability to print from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Unfortunately, the list of supported printers is meak and most people aren’t interested in purchasing a new printer for the purpose of using AirPrint. For Mac users, you can enable AirPrint to work with any printer that is connected to your computer via USB or your home network. Set-up is a breeze. The program will install as a System Preference but it does not modify your operating system in any way. Immediately I noticed my printer which is connected […]
If you happen to own both an iPhone and AppleTV, then yesterday’s release of iOS 4.2 was thought to bring you great joy. One would have thought that you could easily view videos shot on your iPhone on your HDTV with a few clicks. Sounds plausible right? You shoot a few videos of your kids or in my case cats and you want to share them with friends and family. This feature is not part of AirPlay in iOS 4.2.1. Say what?
Chores and tasks tend to suck when you’re younger, but they seem to suck even more as you get older and don’t have the supportive cheering of Mom and Dad once you’ve finally completed said chores and tasks. Or…you could take advantage of this new RPG-style productivity app that aims to take the place of your mom–kind of. Epic Win is the ultimate to-do list, styled in the form of a productivity game that rewards you points and advancement in levels once you’ve completed a task. It may not be the most action-packed adventure game, but it certainly got me […]
