You may not know app developers Outfit7 by name (yet), but you’ll likely remember them from their work, including the popular Talking Tom Cat. The company announced today a rare milestone of 100 million downloads in less than a year as they prepare for a new wave of entertainment apps.
Back in February we wrote about a fantastic new platformer that was coming out called League of Evil. The game played very similarly to the independent gaming hit Super Meat Boy, which was (and still is) a very exciting thing for the iOS platform. Rather than struggling with touch screen controls like most iOS platformers, League of Evil excelled. Today we're getting word that the platformer has received its second big update.
Have no fear! Destructopus is here! Or at least it will be very soon on May 3rd. The game casts the player as a 10-story tall cephalopod of destruction as he makes his way through a world filled with environmental malfeasance and corporate greed. How will you save the world from such evils? Destructopus isn't the type to chain himself to a tree in protest. He gets his business done by crushing the buildings and killing the workers of these nefarious organizations.
It's a holiday weekend, which means half of you are being pried off your computers and iOS devices with crowbars right now and you're unable to feel the sweet salving goodness of the Mac|Life crew in any way, shape, or form. Which is totally a shame, because this week was rockin. Things were popping in the iOS world this week and because you were too busy getting the last of your paperwork processed it, you had to miss it. And that's why we have this here little column, but what can we do in case you miss In Case You Missed It?
With Easter only days away and family inevitably bearing down for a delicious homemade dinner, there can be only one concern: what iOS apps can make things a bit better?
This probably isn't the right question to be asking.
Still, in the interest of procrastination, we were able to find 10 nifty apps to help get you in the Easter spirit, fight with ninja bunnies, locate undead bunnies, easily craft a nifty Easter card to share with friends and family, make the perfect egg Martha Stewart-style and find out exactly when Easter will fall in coming years.
Easter: A holiday filled with indulgent sweets, pastel colors, hopping mammals, and a plethora of free, gimmicky apps infiltrating the App Store. Fortunately, they're not all a sham, and some are worth the hassle of downloading and installing. Here are two free apps, and one nifty website that's worth a bookmark, for celebrating Easter.
The latest in a series of academically inclined iOS applications that rely on Wolfram Alpha’s computational engine to do their heavy lifting, Wolfram Astronomy Course Assistant is designed to meet the specific needs of students enrolled in college-level computational astronomy courses. This ain’t Star Walk, and for its intended audience, that’s a good thing.
Maybe it's just because they have potentially the largest and most high quality gaming library of any company on the App Store, but we love it when EA puts on a garage sale and starts hawking their apps for dirt cheap. To "celebrate" (read: sell apps to people bored at Easter family functions) the Easter weekend, EA has launched a new sale on some of their best games.
You'll pay hundreds, even thousands, of dollars for lessons with a golf pro, all to perfect your drive and shave a few strokes off your game. You'll head out to a driving range and plug bucket after bucket of balls, all in order to train yourself to repeat perfectly what your lessons taught you.
Mobile payments are heating up -- just as Square gets coveted space at Apple retail stores, Intuit is launching a counteroffensive by making their free GoPayment app universal, bringing payment processing to the iPad as well.
