With all of the talk about the release of iOS 7 and a change to a flatter, less skeuomorphic design, we’ve been wondering how Apple would accomplish the move without losing clarity. After all, a pretty interface isn’t any good to anyone if you can’t get it to do what you want.

Apple closed out their WWDC 2013 keynote with an introduction to iOS 7, and a huge focus was on how it looks. We know Apple can make something look nice, but can a flatter design make iOS work better on your iPad? (more…)

Today, Apple unveiled their newest iteration of iOS (appropriately called iOS 7) at WWDC. It features a complete redesign that re-envisions what is possible with an iPhone and iPad while adding a ton of great new features that make it even better for Apple’s power users. Let’s check out what iOS 7 brings to the table. (more…)

Aliens are invading the Earth! Where are they from? Who knows. What do they want? Good question. One thing is for sure: they must be stopped! The only ones up to the task are the stars of Random Heroes 2, a menagerie of warriors assembled to take on the bad guys on their home turf. Much like its predecessor, Random Heroes, your army and your arsenal must adapt and get stronger in order to destroy the menace that threatens the planet. Think you’re up to the task? Find out what your mission entails after the jump!

While there was nothing wrong with Tapbots apps, Tweetbot and Netbot, I had grown increasingly disenchanted with them and craved something new and fresh. When Twitterrific 5 made its debut, I quickly jumped ship and haven’t looked back. Unfortunately, at that time, Netbot remained the best option for App.net and thus I was resigned to using it.

This Monday, however, things changed drastically. Felix, previously only available on the iPhone, crashed the scene by making a big splash. Overnight it catapulted to the top spot in charts across the globe. The success is much deserved and needless to say… Netbot no longer resides on my iPad.

This year’s WWDC is probably the one of the most anticipated Apple events of all time, with the promise of new and (hopefully) completely revamped versions of both iOS and OS X. Mac.AppStorm and iPad.AppStorm are here to help you keep track of it, with 3 liveblogs for you to watch and participate in! Unfortunately, we won’t be covering it from San Francisco, but we will be providing quality news coverage and analysis both during the presentation and afterwards.

There are three ways you can follow the event:

  1. Our ScribbleLive blog, manned by Mark Myerson, which will automatically update, and you can provide your own thoughts and comments in the live stream.
  2. Our Twitter accounts, @macappstorm and @ipadappstorm (both manned by James Cull). All our tweets will be marked with the hashtag #appstormwwdc — please feel free to use this for thoughts and comments so we can see them.
  3. Our App.net accounts, @macappstorm and @ipadappstorm (both manned by Jordan Merrick). Again, please use the hashtag #appstormwwdc for any thoughts and comments.

We’ll start at 5:30 PM (GMT) so see you there!

Don’t you hate it when you walk in at work and your colleagues are talking about the latest Game of Thrones episode that aired last night, which you once again forgot to watch?

Not only will it remind you about your favorite show airing tonight, it’ll also provide you with additional information on a series or an episode in particular.

It’s time to turn the dial up to 11 on professional iPad audio. We’ve been here before — me telling you that a new app takes audio production on your tablet to the next level — but whereas many successful apps focus on instrument functionality, or creative sound design, the folks over at Steinberg dreamt bigger.

They pushed the envelope to bring us what is nearly a fully-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) like Logic or their own flagship Cubase, in a portable and touch-oriented form. Cubasis is the result, and we take an in-depth look at it after the jump.

“Eclectic” doesn’t even begin to describe these five games, which spotlight summer camp and bigfoot; the Dubai Autodrome; a boy named Manuganu who’s on the run; the bulls of Pamplona, Spain; and some very Dumb Ways to Die.

I hope you enjoy discovering what they all have — or don’t have — in common. Click “more” to start playing. (more…)

I haven’t been on Twitter as long as some people.  In fact, I joined Twitter only when Apple integrated it into iOS 5. A little reluctantly (and with more than a hint of trepidation), I signed up. Since then, Twitter has been an on-again/off-again relationship. When it’s good, it’s great, and when it’s bad, Twitter gets neglected. But I do really like Twitter and I love the apps that come along with it.

For a while, I’ve been trying to find the best way to read through my old tweets and conversations with friends and colleagues. Maybe I’d find a joke I made that I thought was hilarious (or not funny at all, on the other hand). Maybe I could find that brief conversation about iTunes I had with Rian Johnson, the writer/director of Looper. Mostly, I wanted a great way to be nostalgic. I tried a few different apps, but finally found what I wanted in Tweet Library.

The question, “What’s for dinner?” can be especially difficult to answer if you’re counting calories or if you have special dietary requirements (vegan, low-sodium, gluten free). Edamam, a recipe search app, wants to help you decide what’s for dinner so you can make more informed, healthier choices about the food you eat. This app focuses on efficiency by making search quick and easy, while also providing users with high quality recipe results.

Keep reading to find out how this recipe search tool is different…and maybe even decide what’s for dinner tonight.
