Everybody likes to share photos. Unfortunately, with all the various social networking and storage sites, one of the biggest problems is sharing said photos with everyone. Thanks to a new app Photoscatter from the folks at Unique Apps, things just got a whole lot easier.
I’ve spoken before of my love for puzzle games. I think they are great time-killers and when well-designed, can be loads of fun. Recently, I’ve been pretty lucky finding great titles like GreenFingers, Cubit and Electric Box. Today I was able to get my hands on the latest game from Readdle, Cannons. At its base it’s not a new game concept, but the way they’ve designed and executed it definitely sets it apart.
I’ve said quite often in the past that when it comes to games for the iPlatform, my favorites are almost always the “pick up and play” style games. They are usually the easiest to learn and the most addictive. Outside of gaming, one of my longest passions is graffiti art. Up until a little over a month ago, I would have never expected those worlds to collide. Thanks to the powerhouse team of Chillingo and Kinelco and their latest App Store title Underground, I couldn’t be happier.
“Two astronauts awaken in a hyper-sleep chamber aboard a seemingly abandoned spacecraft. It’s pitch black, they are disoriented, and the only sound is a low rumble and creak from the belly of the ship. They can’t remember anything: Who are they? What is their mission? With Lt. Payton staying behind to guide him via radio transmitter, Cpl. Bower ventures deep into the ship and begins to uncover a terrifying reality. Slowly the spacecraft’s shocking, deadly secrets are revealed…and the astronauts find their own survival is more important than they could ever have imagined.” [courtesy of imdb]
When it comes to sports games, tennis is right up my alley. It’s one of those games that seems to just work extremely well regardless of the platform. I’ve been on the look out for one that would be a worthy candidate for my iDevice and was pleased when I saw Bluetooth Wireless Tennis With Agnieszka Radwanska.
A little while ago I reviewed an app called DocScanner. Although I liked the idea of the app, I was less than impressed with the quality and control of the output. Today I had the pleasure of reviewing a competing product named JotNot from developers MobiTech 3000. Rather than do a side by side comparison I decided to review this app on its own merits and let you decide how you feel in the end.
Lately, EA and Hasbro have been enjoying lots of success bringing some of the most popular board games to the iPlatform. Their latest partnership sees one of the most popular words game finally making its way to your iDevice.
The idea behind DocScanner is that it allows you to capture your paper documents and/or images similar to how a scanner would. When I first came across the app I loved the idea and thought that it could be extremely useful, having the ability to keep digital copies of all my daily paperwork.
Just as there’s an app for pretty much anything you need, there seems to be a game for just about every type of person. Whether you’re into racing, hunting, maths, or … gardening. The latest in the pick up and play format to fall into my hands is geared toward the latter.
Board games are popping up more and more on the iPlatform lately because turn-based game play works well on the iPhone, allowing you to easily engage in battles with friends at the drop of a hat. Today I got my hands on a “naval strategy” game that although looks like an old favorite is definitely a new take on a classic game.
