Remember those Fourth of July sparklers you could wave in the air, so bright in the darkness they'd leave a hovering trail of light? Shake Banner works along the same lines. Jostle your iPhone about a bit and the colored letters of your short message will seem to hang in the air.
If you’ve ever dreamed of being able to play World of Warcraft while sitting on the toilet, your iOS application has arrived.
everyAir is a gaming-centric VNC client that allows users to connect their iOS device to a Windows PC or Apple computer over a Wi-Fi connection, with the help of a free companion server application. everyAir separates itself from other VNC clients by providing users with a pair of on-screen game controllers in addition to the virtual keyboard and mouse combination offered by other VNC applications.
Even given some of the extremely bizarre games that have appeared on the App Store over the past years, Hot Springs Story may be one of the strangest. Rather than appeal to time-honored fantasies like being a sports star or space marine like most games today, Hot Springs Story appeals to those who have a burning desire to manage a Japanese hot springs resort, an obviously infinitesimally small niche on this side of the Pacific.
Whether your passion is outrunning the law, or busting perps in a nitrous-fueled cop car, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit has your fix. It's safe to say that just about everyone has fantasized about stepping on the gas to lead the cops on a 100 mile police chase, and Hot Pursuit offers an extremely fun adaptation of that fantasy.
In Battleheart, you control a group of adventurers as they make their way through monster-infested locations while recruiting additional members, getting more powerful, and finding or buying better equipment. Sounds like a typical role-player, but Battleheart stands out thanks to its friendly cartoonish artwork, and the simple but very well done animation.
The late, great Ansel Adams once said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” With Filterstorm 2, universal for iPad and iPhone, you can “make” just about any photo your imagination conceives. It’s so good, in fact, that it may -- for everyone but a true professional -- obviate the need for desktop editing suites.
TiVo forever changed the way we watch TV, but its arrival on the iPad sure won’t spark a similar revolution. This app definitely delivers some killer new functionality, but it doesn’t do the one thing you probably most want it too: streaming.
Still, what it does do, it does quite well, turning your iPad into a killer remote control -- if you have the right TiVo hardware.
In AirFight HD you circle an endless stretch of featureless ocean to fight rarely glimpsed jets bent on your destruction. Maybe that’s an accurate picture of modern aerial combat, but it doesn’t make for a good time with your iPad.
How many times have you pulled into your driveway and realized you meant to stop for milk or pop by the dry cleaners? You could've saved yourself all those special trips if you had Task Ave chirp reminders whenever you cruise by particular places.
