Happy Fat Tuesday! If you can't make it to Mardi Gras in New Orleans this year, our Monday recap has an app that can put you into the heart of the fun right from your iOS device, along with a handful of other news items you might have missed yesterday. Let's kick things off with a big "oops, sorry about that" from the folks at Twitter...
March is here, can spring be far behind? Judging from the snow we had to clean out of our driveway here on the East Coast this weekend, it's nowhere in sight -- but thankfully the month is off to a good start on the tech front, and our first weekend recap of the month has a few tasty morsels worth reading. So without further ado...
Our monthly recap looks back at the games we reviewed during February, with a total of 18 iOS and Mac games presented here in bite-sized, to-the-point encapsulations. And if you want to see more, simply click the link on each slide to read the full critique and find the link to purchase each game. The App Store produced a pair of 5/5-rated games in February, thanks to the amazing Threes! and Eliss Infinity, but other iOS titles — like redone classic Final Fantasy VI, plus Bug Heroes 2 — also impressed in recent weeks. And on Mac, the month was headlined by the great revival of Tomb Raider, which luckily comes in at a very appealing price.
By the time you read this, Clear will undoubtedly no longer be free (go check!), so if you missed that Price Drop news and didn't score the app that changed to-do lists everywhere we can't help you with that. But what we can do is hook you up with a ton of apps getting their price tags slashed and this week there's a few that are app families that are on sale, so if nature or Dr. Seuss are your thing, this'll be a big one for you.
We're still not completely sold on this whole Google Hangouts thing, but the search giant continues to make improvements, including a big update this week that brings the app in line with the rest of iOS 7.
If broadcasters need to find a reason for services like Aereo to exist, this one's as good as any: The latest update to ABC's streaming app will live stream the Academy Awards on Sunday, but only for a select group of cable subscribers.
Well folks, another month has come and gone, so we'll be saying goodbye to February in grand style today with another jam-packed news recap. Thursday was relatively quiet on the tech front, but once again we've managed to extract a couple of new apps worth looking at, an Instapaper update and a couple of other stories you might have missed. Read on to find out more!
We’ve got a diverse array of intriguing new releases to scope out this week, from sci-fi drama Out There to the wacky, retro-stylized card-battler Calculords and NimbleBit’s free-to-play Disco Zoo. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
Although Apple has working hard filling out the capabilities of iOS over the years (remember when there was no copy and paste?), the lack of true file management continues to be an issue -- and one Readdle hopes to crack with its latest update.
Hard to believe that Mobile World Congress 2014 is already winding down in Barcelona, and will wrap up completely on Thursday. Thus far we haven't seen any truly amazing mobile gadgets launched there -- or maybe we're just getting jaded after writing about this stuff for so long? No matter, there was plenty more going on Tuesday and you can find out all about it by reading on...
