I graduated from college just over a year ago, and I’m finally living in a place where I plan to stay for more than just a nine-month lease. Better yet, I’m allowed to paint and replace things within the apartment. Needless to say, I’m excited to be trying new decorations and renovations after several years of boring, apartment-white walls. I constantly have a project I’m working on, whether it’s finding new furniture or painting a room.
Luckily, I’ve found a number of quality applications to help out along the way as I work to improve my home. I have a few folders on my iPad dedicated to apps related to home improvement in some way. I’ve got apps to help find inspiration, choose paint colors, furnish my apartment and even DIY dedicated applications. There are a huge variety of home improvement apps out there — stick with me after the jump to read up on some of my favorite apps.
This week’s edition is packed with the undead — zombies, that is. Plus some balance-challenged buckets, dungeon-crawling Orcs from Argon and turtles who are ready to go to war at a moment’s notice. Take a look after the jump. (more…)
For those lucky enough to have grown up playing video games since the early ’90s — and in some cases, the mid to late ’80s — traditional point-and-click adventure games were the cream of the crop when it came to high quality story-based video game experiences only available on the PC. For me, titles like Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road and Full Throttle were among some of the more memorable games from days long gone. Though it’s unlikely that we will ever see new original titles at their level any time soon, it’s great knowing iOS continues to keep the genre alive in the mobile world.
If you’re a fan of story-based adventure games and are looking to try something other than the countless, uninspired clones trying to cash in on the Angry Birds, Tiny Wings and Cut the Rope formula, look no further! Here are some of the iPad’s best after the jump. (more…)

Whether you’re a student, business person or have a job of any type, a calendar can be useful to schedule your time and plan out your day. Most iOS users probably rely on the Calendar app because it is built in, but are they missing out on the extra functionality that a third-party calendar can provide? There is also a good chance that they could be missing out on using a better looking calendar!
There are a lot of calendar apps in the App Store. To limit the list, it was decided to have some basic criteria: all major calendar sync services should be supported within the app, including Google, iCloud and Exchange. Let’s check out the contenders after the break. (more…)
Today’s games all happen to have a common theme: survival.

When Apple released the new iPad this past March, its most hyped feature was the Retina display that doubled the screen resolution to 2048 × 1536. The new display looked amazing, but it made nearly all previous wallpapers worthless. Shortly after the new iPad’s release, our own Jacob Penderworth delivered a great list of 100 high definition wallpapers. Now that four more months have passed, giving designers and photographers enough time to stockpile their content, we’re ready to deliver you with a list of 100 more wallpapers to show off on your iPad.
As someone that loves to constantly change the look my iOS devices, I’ve spent a great deal of time scouring the net to find great wallpapers. After the break, you’ll find a true labor of love — a treasure trove of great wallpapers in a multitude of categories (displayed in alphabetical order), ranging from abstract, black & white, movies & television, nature and scenic (just to name a few).
