A notepad test: take a pen and a piece of paper or notepad and write a few words or your name. Easy, isn’t it? Now what about doing that on your iPad, but add the ability to carry with you many pens and paper types, preprepared perfect shapes, highlighter pens and a virtually unlimited reference book that you could cut and paste from (the Internet). Sound a little bit better than the pad and pencil? You’d like to think so.
Here’s the ultimate question: can you replace a notebook in college or your workplace with an iPad and some good software? Well, lets take a look at some of the best offerings out there and see how well they match or exceed your notepad test. (more…)
Well, 2012 has come and gone, and we at AppStorm have seen and used many great apps on iOS. Though we surely couldn’t ever go through each and every quality app recently released, we’ve put together a list of a few of our most treasured titles that have earned a permanent spot on our iPads.
If you were one of the lucky ones that received a shiny new iPad this holiday season, you’ll find many gems worth downloading here. Some are free, some are not, but they’re all guaranteed to be worth your time. Take a look! (more…)
Hope you stretched. You’ve got your work cut out for you this week, since you’re bound to be busy helping a little flying squirrel defeat some evil owl enemies; aiding a HoverBot return to another dimension; exploring (or re-exploring) all there is to know about Riven; commanding your own military faction; and giving a character named Marsh Mal a hand in popping some blobs.
While this week’s games could not be more different, they all have one thing in common: a high fun factor in my book. Click “more” to check them out for yourself and let me know what you think. (more…)
Have you ever pictured your life as a professional stuntman? Have you day-dreamed about which superpower you would choose? Or maybe you’ve imagined what the world would be like if it was overrun by zombies (and a celebrity basketball player had the power to lead the fight against the army of the undead)? No?
Well regardless, here’s your chance to get some answers. This week’s roundup includes games that let you play as Joe Danger, a stuntman who’s pretty good on a motorbike; as a retro time surfer who can practically rewind time at will; and as Shaquille O’Neal (yeah, that Shaquille O’Neal), zombie killer. Oh, and there are also a couple of games featuring cute squirrels and some amazing ants. Check them all out after the jump. (more…)
One of my favorite things about the iPad (and its nice big screen) is the ability to draw, sketch and take notes on it. I think it offers a unique experience as far and going paperless goes, and a lot of developers have put time and effort into designing apps that emulate drawing with a pen and paper. In this roundup, were going to look at a few! (more…)
Of all the games in today’s roundup, the one I’m most excited about is Hundreds, and I think after you take the time to try it you’ll see why. Simultaneously exciting and soothing, it’s a wholly original game that I might just never get tired of playing, or even looking at it.
Let me know what you think of Hundreds and the other four games. Click “more” to check them all out. (more…)
Guardian Eyewitness debuted in 2010 and is still tremendously popular on iPads. Not unlike The Wider Image, the app is a way to get news via visuals instead of blocks of text. Once a day, the app is updated with a photo hand picked by The Guardian’s editors. There’s a little info bubble that displays information about the photo and a pro photographer tip to help you capture similar moments with your own camera.
That pro tip is what really separates Guardian Eyewitness from other like-minded apps. The focus here is primarily on photography; news is a secondary function. This is an app meant for photographers, and probably designed by photographers too, which is definitely a good thing. (more…)
Well we’re barely into the new year and already alien robots are taking over Korea; a rag-tag team of soldiers called the RAD Squad is stirring up some mischief; three suitors are battling it out karate-style over the lovely Mariko; and a narwhal named Sharpy is (badly) drawing movie scenes.
Find out what else is happening in this first games round-up of 2013 by clicking “more.” (more…)
Although developers continue to stun us with intricately made graphics for their iOS games (and boy, do they look great on the iPad’s Retina Display), it seems as if everyone, both old and young, still have an emotional attachment to ’80s arcadia. Luckily for us, the nostalgic 8-bit art style from this age also translates well to our iPads, and even graces some of our favorite games here at iPad.AppStorm.
In today’s roundup, we’ll be looking at eight different iOS games that bear the beautiful 8-bit graphics we so love, but also provide hours of exciting playtime. Find out which apps made the cut after the break! (more…)
Welcome to the first iPad games roundup after the world didn’t end on Dec. 21, and the last iPad games roundup of 2012. This week’s apps will have you becoming: a big know-it-all while playing a wickedly fun trivia game; a crime-fighting middle manager who’s ready for life beyond his cube; a respawnable cartoon soldier; monsters Mike and Sulley who are on the run to save Boo; and a team of experts exploring a lost world.
