Battleheart is a lightweight cartoon-style swords and sorcery game designed for casual gamers. Its colorful graphics and amusing animations are very appealing. It’s from Mika Mobile, who also make Zombieville USA.
The game itself is very easy to learn and play at the earlier levels, while the later levels remain quite challenging, requiring a fair bit of strategy and coordination. I have, I confess, been spending way too long playing it since I bought it – a fact emphasized by the useful summary of time expended which you see when first opening the game!
Tomorrow is a massive day for the iPhone! Whether critics like to see it like that doesn’t really matter, Apple has taken over one million pre-orders for the iPhone 4S – it’s already a success. Tomorrow is also a great day for iPad owners, whether they’re taking the plunge with the new iPhone or not, as it sees the general release of iOS 5.
iOS 5 is touted as being a huge step forward in the development of iOS, and should add whole new layers of functionality to the iPad in particular. Hardware-wise we’ve got the release of the iPad 3 to look forward to in the next year (I’m playing it safe), but let’s take a look at what exciting developments tomorrow holds for us…
Business is becoming increasingly global. Never before has there been so much pressure on executives, from big corporations to cottage industries, to be mobile. Portable computers have facilitated this until now but the iPad provides the opportunity for easier, less encumbered travel.
Let us look at the apps that could make iPad the businessperson’s ideal travel companion without compromising on the functionality of a laptop.

Internet shopping has become a way of life for many people. Especially as it’s easier than ever to shop while on the go with sites like eBay and Amazon having mobile apps. Keeping track of your deliveries is entirely another matter. Scraps of paper, or maybe even a folder or label in your inbox are what most people probably resort to. The problem is compounded if you’re an eBay seller as you’ll need to keep track of outgoing packages as well.
I first heard about Delivery Status a few years ago when it was just a free Dashboard widget for Mac. When it became a fully-fledged iPhone app, I couldn’t resist buying it. It’s now available on iPad too, but is it worth the money and does it really make keeping track of your deliveries any easier? Read on to find out…
Hello readers of AppStorm! As you may know, from time to time we cross promote other Envato sites and services here on the AppStorm network. Well, today we launched a short-run Graphic Designer Bundle on our marketplaces, and it’s fantastic value – $500 of photos, images and Photoshop/Illustrator add-ons for just $20!
In the bundle are files from our long-running and highly popular GraphicRiver marketplace, and the newly launched PhotoDune marketplace for royalty free stock photos. It’s a fantastic deal with some great stuff in it. I should know, as I picked the files myself!! (more…)
A mere few days have passed since the news came in, and I thought it would be fitting to collect together some thoughts from a few of the AppStorm editors. This is simply our tribute to a truly inspirational man.
For us iPad owners, October 12th isn’t simply about the release of the iPhone 4S – it’s a big day for us too, as iOS 5 lands! We can finally get our hands on all the new features promised to us before the summer began…
I, personally, am very excited, but I’d like to know the general AppStorm vibe here; is it all about new hardware, or do big software updates also float your boat? Are you making the upgrade a priority?
Will you be downloading it at your earliest possible convenience, or waiting to be prompted by iTunes? Can you wait to get your hands on the new functionality?
It’d be awesome if you’d get involved and let us know your feelings in the comments, and be sure to vote in the poll! What feature are you most excited for? Next weeks poll will be about your favourite feature of the new OS, so get thinking…
The stock market in the last few weeks has been volatile to say the least. The week prior to writing this review saw 200 to 800 point swings in a matter of twenty-four hours. StockTouch is a stock market monitoring tool that is incredibly visual in nature so this temperamental behavior has created some interesting and quickly changing visuals.
StockTouch gives you a visual representation of individual stocks and the market divided in sectors and also as a whole. It makes stock and market research quite entertaining, but is it actually useful?
A few weeks back, Second Gear updated their note taking app Elements to version 2.0. This added a completely redesigned UI and lots of new sharing support. The app functions as a Markdown editor in the cloud with full Dropbox sync support. It has a bunch of other basic features including printing, TextExpander, sharing to the web or publishing on Tumblr or Facebook, word counting, and the ability to export as HTML or PDF.
Elements is a fully universal iOS app, so you can use it with your iPhone and iPad seamlessly for the price of one app. It’s also very helpful to have when you write a note down at work and then want to find it once your phone has died. Read on to discover more about the potential of Elements 2.0…
