After being acquired by Twitter in 2010, atebits seemed to disappear from the app world. Just recently, its founder has surprised us by announcing the revival of the company as atebits 2.0. Its goal? To make things, the first of which being a game.
The brainchild happens to be the game we are reviewing today, Letterpress. While it is obvious that Letterpress is quite different than the rest of the word games available for iOS, is it strong enough to bring atebits back to the developing scene, or does it leave them in the dust? Find out after the break. (more…)
Showboat is an inexpensive scrapbooking app, with some good basic features for throwing together collections of photos quickly. This app will provide a way to showcase your photo collections of app screenshots, real estate summaries, art portfolios, items for sale, etc. It’s an ideal app for when you know you’re Internet access will be absent or patchy.
Although it’s still undergoing development, this is an app to watch. Lets take a look at what it offers out of the box right now. (more…)
It isn’t often that you find a puzzler that can keep your attention without getting repetitive or annoying. My main problem with them is just that — it’s hard to come across a game that gets you thinking while also keeping you intrigued and entertained. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to review today’s game, The Room, as it promised a new and unique experience.
The Room is a storyline-driven puzzle game with lots of mystery. It goes for $5 dollars and it has received lots of praise, as it was picked as the App Store Editor’s Choice. Are you interested? (more…)
Calendars are very personalized utilities, detailing an individual’s most important events and tasks, and maybe letting them jot down a note or two. No wonder visual calendars are all the rage these days. Fans seem to be in love with the ability to tailor their daily, weekly and monthly timetables just a little bit more with the pictures and artworks of their choosing.
Add to this function an ability to create alerts, visual sorting features and managing easy-to-create entries and the combination equals Moredays, the app that prides itself on being a digital planner that blends elements of a scrapbook. Can Moredays be a great addition to your app collection? Find out on the other side of the break.
We’ve collected the top four reviews, roundups and how-to articles from across the AppStorm network in October. Whether you’re interested in Mac, iPhone, Web, Android, Windows, or iPad apps, there’s bound to be something you didn’t spot over the course of the month.

Thanks for reading AppStorm, and I hope you enjoy looking over some of our favourite posts from last month!
I own a pretty decent amount of movies. Not nearly as some of my friends, but my collection fills up two DVD shelves and a bookcase. When you own that many flicks, it’s rather difficult keeping tracking of everything you own. I’ll sometimes find myself in stores looking at a movie and wondering if it’s already sitting on my shelf at home waiting to be watched.
A few of my compadres manage their movie collection using spreadsheets, which certainly works, but doesn’t really provide the best user experience. If I want to know if the Zombieland is already in my collection (silly, I know, because it’s a must have), I don’t want to scroll through a long list of titles to find out. Luckily, that’s where My Movies comes into play. Find out after the jump why managing your movie collection has never been easier. (more…)
Reading has become part of nearly every person’s life. Even if it’s just a quick glimpse at a sign when you’re walking through town or traveling about, you read things at least once a day. You were probably taught the alphabet and how to read a book when you were just a child, as most people were. Now, you’ve advanced to long novels like The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, among others. The only thing that’s changed about reading lately is the medium.
Before the release of e-readers and the iPad, people read tactile material, not PDFs or ePubs of their favorite books. Electronic books have become very popular lately, however. On an iOS device, there are a lot of ways to read books, but the two most popular are Amazon’s Kindle app and Apple’s iBooks. They both offer a good selection of the classics and New York Times bestsellers, but in all of iBooks’ existence, we at iPhone.AppStorm haven’t taken a deep look at the app. With its latest update, now is as good a time as ever.

The iPad mini is an interesting concept. It’s something that consumers everywhere have been talking about for a long time, but now that it’s finally here, there’s been a lot of talk from the tech media about how the product really doesn’t measure up to expectations. How it’s not good enough because it doesn’t have a Retina display, or that it doesn’t have enough RAM. Yes, a lot of the tech press says that the iPad mini is a disappointment all the way around, but there are still a lot of people who bought them this past weekend, including me.
The iPad mini has now been in my hands for the past few days. So what’s the verdict? Is it worth it as a purchase or should the general public hold off? Is the tech press correct in their judgement? Let’s get into it after the jump. (more…)
