Yes, it's true -- there are still people out there doing the AIM chatting thing or getting their Yahoo Chat on. We know, we know, it's hard for us to believe it too. But for those of us who have our benighted friends trapped in the late 90s, there is still hope. We can chat with them on our iOS devices and still manage to grab our Facebook friends and our Gmail folks. These may not be the one app to bind them but they come pretty close when you rock the multi-client instant messaging apps.
Those loveable blue Smurfs are about to leap from television history onto the big screen this week, and what better way to celebrate their theatrical arrival than with an iOS storybook featuring exclusive images and audio from the movie?
Parents are always worried about the health and welfare of their little ones, but it’s not always easy to get the right information when the kids get sick. That’s why KidsHealth has introduced a new free iPhone app that asks the simple question: Is It Contagious?
Most people use the camera on their iPhone or iPod touch for taking snapshots. But when you're ready to get artistic, Magic Shutter can help you do more. This $3 app lets you control the lens’s shutter and leave it on for longer than the usual split second, thereby creating interesting visual effects.
The cult hit, ultra-stylish adventure game from Amanita Design, Machinarium, will be getting an iPad version pretty soon, the developer announced today.
Machinarium is a point-and-click adventure game in the classic sense. You basically go around exploring the environments, solving puzzles and otherwise clicking on anything that could potentially have an action coded into it. It has been very well received by both fans and critics since its release in Fall 2009.
Want to fulfill your Kraftwerk fantasies with a $12 iOS app? iVoxel is cool little app that's deceptively modest at first glance -- it takes a few minutes to work through the menus and appreciate the powerhouse of voxel magic. But that power becomes less surprising when you consider that the technology is based on the Matrix vocoder from the same developer which is notably used by Kraftwerk among other well known names.
The Mac|Life editors’ favorite new pastime (besides fiddling with our Apple gear, of course) is playing DJ. Most days, we can be found at turntable.fm/maclife spinning tunes and nerding out on music while we work. But office decorum dictates that we wear headphones while rocking out. Yes, technology has made it extremely easy for Robbie to go on a Smiths bender and take the rest of us along for the ride -- but Paul’s ban on Morrissey in the office is still very much in effect, and violators are punished swiftly.
The App Store's finest work of art on the subject of being a horrendous all-destroying mega worm received an exciting new update today. The game will now allow you to wreak havoc, destroying all that you see...with a joystick!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, we know. It's only the latter part of July, and the last thing you probably want to be thinking about is school being back in session. However, it'll be here before you know it, and one way you can be prepared is by looking into renting e-books, or rather e-textbooks. Heck, you might even save some money along the way!
