Ever walk into a mall and see some kid wearing an Angry Birds T-shirt? Maybe there’s a friend of yours who has a stuffed animal shaped like the red bird in the game. Possibly your dad is hooked on the app like crack — you get the picture.
That game was developed by Rovio, and recently a few of their developers spun off to create their own company, Boomlagoon. Their first release is called Noble Nutlings, and it’s the tale of three squirrels, a car and a bunch of acorns. Did they create the next Angry Birds or will these rodents go feral? Let’s find out after the jump. (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…)
At a few of my past (and current) jobs it’s been necessary to send large photos and videos back and forth on Dropbox, and my attempts to request photos often got lost in the shuffle. Not to mention there were a few unfortunate Dropbox deleting accidents, which effectively wiped out entire folders. If only there was an app that was super simple to send, receive and store files and didn’t require clients and the occasional contributors to log in. Oh, and it would be nice to be able to have accurate data about all of those files, like when and who added to the folders and downloaded files. If only, right? Well, as luck would have it, ShareFile is on the horizon and it’s going to make life easier.

There has been a definite rise in social gaming as of late, with titles such as Draw Something and Hay Day dominating the App Store.
Only last month, social networking giant Facebook announced that SongPop had placed first in the website’s top 25 games of 2012, receiving the highest star ratings and engagement levels over the course of the year. But what is it exactly that makes this FreshPlanet-developed game worthy of such stature? Find 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…)
There are many cloud storage services available these days (SkyDrive, Google Drive, SugarSync, Box and even Apple’s iCloud), but in my mind, Dropbox reigns supreme. I love the file management system, the ease of syncing content between devices, and the manner in which I can share files with others. Simply put, I’m a Dropbox fanboy.
Just before the holidays version 2.0 of Dropbox was released, bringing with it a brand spanking new design and new features geared towards uploading and managing photos. Having put away my ugly sweaters and wiping the eggnog from my chin, I’m ready to let you know if version 2.0 is a winner. All you have to do is hit the jump. (more…)
We’ve just started a new year, and so many of us already need help getting back on track. I, for one, always set really important goals for myself with high hopes of making them stick, only to be caught off guard by my own lack of willpower and motivation.
All I need is a little help to keep me on the right path, and that’s what My Wonderful Goals offers. The forward planning and positive reinforcement inherent in My Wonderful Goals may give me the boost I need not to stray this time. But can an app really do all that? (more…)
What does your iPad get used for? The chances are that it is used for a variety of things ranging from accessing social networks and sending emails, to watching videos and playing games. While the bulk of your iPad’s life may be dedicated to fun, it can also be used as a serious tool for work.
On a desktop computer there is one essential piece of software — the office suite. Such tools have existed on mobile platforms for some time now, but have generally left a lot to be desired. But things have evolved over the years, and we’ve now reached a stage where mobile office suites make working on the move with an iPad is easier than ever. Enter Documents To Go Premium. (more…)
I was testing an app on my iPad mini the other day, and was thinking about the stereo speakers on the bottom of the device. They don’t get super loud (although that’s not really shocking), but it gets the job done for me, typically. As I thought about it more, I wasn’t sure that I had ever used a pair of headphones on the iPad — or any of my iPads, other than once on a flight.
Looking among the rest of my friends and family, I saw that some use docks, some use headphones and sometimes even a Bluetooth speaker. What about you? Do you use headphones or something similar with your iPad? Let us know in the poll to the right!
