The one thing you need to know about me is that I am a huge Hunger Games fan. I have read all books, and the minute I found out that the Hunger Games movie was going to become a reality, I was ecstatic. Needless to say, I can’t wait to see the Hunger Games movie as it premieres this weekend.
What better way to kick off a premiere weekend than with the movie’s own iOS application? That’s right, Lions Gate Films did create a teaser game for the movie called Hunger Games: Girl on Fire. Will this application be worthy of carrying the Hunger Games title? You’ll see after the break.
One of the biggest app announcements from the recent Apple event was the introduction of iPhoto for iOS. It got a great demonstration on stage and has spent the last couple of weeks buzzing around the Top Charts.
The question for today is, do you like it?
Are you a massive fan of the workflow that iPhoto encourages, or do you find it limiting? Do the gestures make you feel like you’re living in the future, or do you find them confusing and redundant?
I think that iPhoto was a superb app to showcase with the Retina iPad, but what do you think – have you tried it on an iPad 2? Feel free to leave a comment below about your experience with iPhoto!
The iPad – what a great device. Back in 2010, Apple saw the tablet as more than just another way to browse the internet and read books. They saw something different, something that would change the way we define portable computing. No, the tablet has not yet replaced notebook computers, but it’s well on its way!
With the unveiling of the third-generation iPad, Apple has reset the standard.

With everything you’ve heard about the iPad over the last few weeks you’re probably wondering how the new iPad stacks up, what makes it significant?

Online news outlets can be happy about one thing. With the advent of tablets and smartphones, consumption of their content is set to explode soon, if it hasn’t happened already. News reader apps make the experience of reading and discovering content a breeze. Currents from Google is a new entrant in the already crowded news reader space.
I can’t see a major source of revenue anytime soon for a company the size of Google from this vertical, but here they are competing head to head with tiny startups. Is it awesome enough to dethrone Flipboard, Pulse and the like? Time to find out!

Cooking is fun and, for the most part, fairly easy if you have the right teacher. Taking a written recipe for anything even a little bit complicated can lead to some incorrect interpretations and a failed culinary endeavor.
Not long ago I did a roundup of cooking apps here and included Appetites as part of the group. I spent more time with Appetites and really learned some serious things from the step by step video delivery method of cooking a recipe. I can say it changed the way I cook. When I came upon the same developer’s Easy As Pie I knew I had to try it out. Off into the world of pie making.
If there is one thing that the iPad is great for, it’s doodling. The iPad’s large multi-touch screen makes it the perfect canvas to draw just about anything. But what if the marvelous drawing experience was turned into a game?

We’ve come to the conclusion, as users of the iPad, that the device is second to none for content consumption. The experience of sitting back with a sleek, light tablet in hand, yet being able to access a world of content is something that Apple has touted ever since the iPad launched. There’s a good chance you might be reading this very post on your iPad (I’m writing it on mine).
While the web hosts an incredible selection of content, a lot of it is cluttered in advertising and other stuff you simply don’t care about. When I’m reading an article, the content is what I care about it. Readability is a web service with a fairly new iOS app that puts content in a clean, comfortable reading view.
On Friday, Apple’s latest and greatest iPad launched in ten countries around the globe. If you were one of the lucky people to pre-order one online before they sold out, or if you happened to make your way through the lines at retail stores, then you’ve seen the “resolutionary” Retina display that the device touts.
But what good is such a display without apps that are prepared for it? In this article, I’m going to show you twelve apps that are completely optimized for your new iPad’s beautiful 2048 by 1536 pixel display, taking advantage of every last pixel. Read on for the roundup!
