Welcome to our new weekly feature, iPad Game Thursday! In the spirit of the excellent iPhone Game Friday series done by Marius Masalar, we’re taking it to the iPad for some of the coolest games to hit iTunes within the last few weeks. In this roundup you’ll find a drag racing game, the latest in squid-tertainment, a new puzzler from Disney, a Frisbee follow-up and the official game of the summer blockbuster The Amazing Spider-Man.
Hit the jump to take a look … (more…)
Transferring items from your Mac to your iPad has never been easy. The act of emailing items to yourself seems archaic and is not a good solution for users who try to enforce techniques such as Inbox Zero. With email being the default fallback, what are the other options out there?
Users could and might rely on note syncing services such as Evernote and Simplenote, but this process can get tedious when trying to force sync repeatedly. That is where myPhoneDesktop aims to fill the void of easily getting data from your Mac to your iPad. You might not be able to easily think of when this might be useful, but if you are trying to get certain urls to your iPad without having to search for them or use another service it can be really useful.

If there’s one thing I am adamant about (except all things Apple) it’s not missing my TV shows. It used to be easy, years ago, when the number of shows was somewhat manageable. Today though, there seem to be hundreds and hundreds of different offerings that compete for your attention. And if you get sucked into one show, it quickly becomes two, five, ten or more. How does anyone keep track of them?
You could check running times online or in your local newspaper, but there’s a much more elegant way if you own an iPhone or iPad, because, well, there’s an app for that. It’s called iTV Shows 2 and we’re going to take a look at it today. (more…)
For me, the end of the finals always signified the wonderful opportunity to do better next year. I always vow to start studying earlier and prepare well in advance, so after finals season I find the best tools to help me study next year. I don’t want to go into the followthrough on my vows…
We’ve already seen 15 Essential iPad Apps For Students here on Appstorm, but I’d like to look at this from a different angle. There are an abundance of note taking apps, planning apps, organizers, and so on, but at the end of the day we have to sit down and learn things (terrible isn’t it?). Let’s look at some apps that can help with the learning process itself. (more…)
Google Chrome is one of the most popular browsers out there and probably the app of choice for quite a few of our readers. It came as somewhat of a surprise when Chrome for iOS was announced on day two of Google I/O, in between demonstrations of extreme sports.
Taking on Safari in it’s own territory is a bold move from Google, although it signifies the company’s commitment to other platforms than it’s own and will likely put a smile on some die-hard Chrome users’ faces. In this review, we’re going to take Chrome for iPad out for a spin and provide some thoughts on how it stacks up to the native Safari. (more…)
With over 400,000 apps available for download, the iOS App Store is an unforgiving marketplace, and one in which it can extremely difficult to set your app aside from the rest. Hard to believe then, that such a simple app as Cargo-Bot boasts one of the most unique accolades possible: the first game to be programmed entirely on an iPad.
If that’s not enough to get your attention, I don’t know what is. That fact alone was enough to peak my interest in this relatively simple game, or so it appears upon first glance. In truth, what I found was much more; a deftly created game that packs a real, challenging punch. Intrigued? Let’s find out more. (more…)

Pocket Planes has flown to the top of the App Store charts, but can it fly to the top of ours? Find out after the break. (more…)
The poll this week is glaringly simple: do you look forward to new versions of iOS?
Obviously the demographic of this poll is slightly skewed, AppStorm readers tend towards more app and feature excitement than the average user, but I’m interested to know whether you genuinely look forward to new OS releases?
Put the date in your calendar? (You’re a “Yes” by the way)
Download it quite quickly but fail to really look for or use the new features? (You’re probably a “Not really”)
Let me know in the comments what kind of feature updates actually make you excited? Are you looking forward to Siri and iOS 6?
Two weeks ago we started a competition that gave AppStorm readers a chance to win a slick video to show off their app or site. This week we’re giving you all a chance to choose which apps get a Wyzowl promo video!
Click the links and have a look through the choices, then pick your favourite app in each category.
I’ll name the winners in a week!
