You might remember 4th and Battery from their exploits earlier this year when they were spawned as an off-shoot brand of Bejeweled/Plants vs. Zombies developer PopCap Games. Their first game was mired in controversy, the second was hardly ever seen, and now they're back with a third. Though they're being a bit coy with the announcement, we think we know what game it is.
If Mad Men has reminded us of anything about the 1960s, it’s that it was common for office secretaries to be subject to sexual harassment in the decidedly masculine workplace. Office Rush XL doesn’t appear to take place in the '60s, but the first thing that stood out to me about this unassuming iOS game is the way the secretaries serve coffee to their bosses by offering it up to them on their knees.
Phosphor Games has unveiled their highly intriguing new horror game for iOS. It's called The Dark Meadow, and it looks pretty amazing thus far. Today they're showing off some awesome new screens of the game in action.
“Let’s see what you’re working on,” says your pointy-haired boss, popping up from nowhere and heading toward your desk. A dense scattering of miscellaneous icons litters your Desktop, some with less-than-savory filenames, others that are clearly not work-related. The Olivia Wilde wallpaper doesn’t scream “highly qualified professional” either. However, with the calmness of a professional poker player, you simply hit a key combination to clear all of this junk and get on with showing off your current project. That’s the kind of magic Clean Slate provides.
Hey, iPad owners! This one's for you. iPad apps tend to be more expensive than their smaller-screened counterparts, but luckily they go on sale just as often. This week we found iPad apps for making comic-book heroes out of you and your friends, apps to give you a reason to haul your trusty iPad to meetings, and a game that lets you take over the world. And you can get all of 'em for less than the price of a six-dollar burger...
Ah, the eternal questions: are we alone in the universe, just who did let the dogs out, and will that free TV on the curb fit through my doorway? You’re on your own with the first two, but CaMeasure can help with the last one. It’s an app that lets you measure objects just by taking their pictures and then putting in a fair amount of work on your touchscreen. It’s not magic, but it gets the job done.
Trekkies rejoice! Finally there's an app that will allow you to exercise your life long dream of shedding these weak 21st century operating systems, and work in something a bit more advanced. Like Star Trek's LCARS OS. At least, sort of. This fan-service app is more like a very neat interactive encyclopedia.
Look, we get it. Angry Birds is an unfathomable success. They've transcended cult-hit status and landed at culture defining app of the decade. Even though some people don't like them. But nowadays you can't even open the App Store without seeing a clusterfunk of feathers. Chances are you've never even heard of these birds, even though they currently nest in the Top 150 Apps. Today we hatch awareness of the other birds in the App Store.
It's 2011 and there is a certain concession a lot of us have to make: social networking sites and platforms dominate a fair part of our computing existence. That being said, why not find a Mac OS X app that allows you to update multiple social networking sites at once. Notify all of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other microcosms of your present awesomeness, all with the touch of one button from one desktop application. Here are five Mac OS X apps that pull this feat off in fine style.
More than a few people have gone so far as to call Real Racing 2 the perfect iOS racing game, and we're pretty much in agreement. It's awesome. And it's about to get a bit more awesomer and perfecter as an update has arrived for the title and it's HD iPad counterpart.
