Let it be known than Halloween -- arguably the coolest holiday of the year that's not yet a federal holiday -- is right around the corner. Granted, many of you have probably already assembled costumes and absurd lawn decorations, or perhaps built a small fort out of fun sized candy bars. But if you're still seeking a little bit of Halloween spirit, we've assembled this list of 10 iOS apps that'll fit the mood, whether they deliver scares, silly noises, or simply holiday-appropriate distractions. And with most of them free or priced at about a buck, you may have some spare cash left for backup candy reserves. Don't want to tick off those trick-or-treaters, after all.
Whether you waited in line or at home for the UPS delivery person, the last thing you want to do is sour that wait time by dropping your brand new iPhone 4S to its death. Okay, fine, that was kind of dramatic. But it is still made out of glass and prone to scratches and cracks. Protect it with a case from this week's Best Case Scenario.
There are many role-playing games (RPGs) for iOS devices, like Solomon’s Keep or Battleheart, but nearly all are focussed on casual gameplay; something you’d pick up for a few minutes to pass the time. Although by no means unique, the iPad-only Companions is cut from a different cloth, and if you’re a fan of traditional fantasy RPGs like Wizardry, Dungeon Master, and Bard’s Tale, you’ll appreciate the depth and breadth of the storyline and gameplay.
These days, almost everyone has an iPhone. Most of us make our phones stand out from the crowd with a $10-$30 protective case that reflects our personal aesthetics, but for some people that just isn't good enough.
So, what do the world's richest do to keep their iPhones exclusive? Encrust them with diamonds, dip them in gold, and restructure them with other fine materials, of course. Check out these shining examples of the most ridiculously extravagant mods money can buy for your iPhone.
Well despite some sad pandas in the financial prediction racket, Apple is hot hot hot. Sure, their last quarter sales were a wee bit lower than expected, but that was merely the collective intake of breath before the new model iPhone debuted. Naturally you wait until the new handset is out and with the iOS device line driving Apple's profitability, who didn't predict this? Apparently Wall Street. Anyway, Apple's hot whether they like it or not and here's some more weekly hotness.
So we’ve looked at the basics when it comes to freeing up drive space, but if that didn’t do the job, several Mac apps will help you to detect and remove space-wasters. These tools range from system scans that will pick out very large files and list them in order of size to very specific apps that target common drive space thieves (like app-related files that linger after you’ve deleted an app) and bring them to justice via the Trash can. Then there’s the third kind of tool—one that’s part software, part service. Rather than removing large files completely, these offerings provide a way for you to move them to a secure storage space on the web. We’ll show you the four most effective ways to use these apps.
When it comes to surfing the interwebs with an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, Safari gets things done, albeit with a lack of style and an absence of Flash. While this might be fine for some people, many of us -- demanding more from our mobile browsing experience -- download alternative alternative web browsers from the iTunes App Store in the hopes of finding one that fills the digital hole left in our hearts by Safari's shortcomings. Interested in taking one for a spin? We thought you'd be. To get you started, we've put together a collection of ten of the better mobile browsers available for your iOS device.
It’s been an enormous month for major studios bringing major game series to iOS. First we got a port-over of the Nintendo DS's favorite, Scribblenauts, and then Burnout Crash was announced. We also caught wind of a couple of other high-profile stars coming to the App Store in a easy-to-peruse click-through gallery.
The iPhone 4S and Android have really been taking over my brain waves lately, so I thought it might be nice to take a break and remember what it's like to get creative with Apple's products. Take Damian Kinsella, for instance. He lives in Southern California and spends a good number of time overstaying his welcome at the local Panera Bread, creating ornate portraits and works of art on his iPad.
Kinsella sketches photos of his friends, musical favorites and himself on his iPad. And he's graciously sent over a few of his sketches for your entertainment. Click through the gallery for a look at his latest work, and check out the video for a step-by-step look at his artistic process.
Thirty years ago, a little frog braved oncoming traffic to get to the other side… of an extremely popular arcade game. The concept proved so endearingly popular that many years later, it was featured in an iconic episode of hit 90s sitcom, Seinfeld. To mark the momentous anniversary of the game's original release, the core approach has been revamped for your iOS device, be it an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
