This week, we've got three apps that help you get those goals completed, pay those bills, remember to feed your dependents (plants count, too), and even get inspired with more ideas! But remember: you don't have to start being productive today of all days. It's Friday, after all! It can wait until Monday. Anything can wait until Monday.
Remember those school reports you had to do in geography class, where you had to look up a bunch of data about local cities and towns? Probably not, because that's a lousy way to learn. Unfortunately, that's the WindowSeat experience too.
Got the midsummer blues? Treat yourself to some free or on-sale iPad games. And since life goes on even when it's so hot outside you wish you could just press pause, we found some low-cost productivity apps too, universal for iPad and iPhone/iPod touch.
In a recent review of Shadow Cities we said it was "Part RPG, part location-based team strategy game, all addictive time-sink." Unfortunately, when I was reading the review, I didn't pay enough attention to those last three words. Too bad, because weeks later, I'm still sinking all of my time into the epic mage battles.
Even in an industry with such evocative and artful names as "Cut the Rope" and "Angry Birds," Desert Zombie: Last Stand may still qualify as one of the worst, most cliche video game names in history. That said, the game itself actually looks pretty cool, and the graphics are absolutely gorgeous.
Reisuke Ishida, the mind behind the iOS classic Space Invaders Infinity Gene (one of the first truly great iPhone games) has released a new game. It's called Groove Coaster, and it's a roller coaster of grooves.
Sharing music was easier in the days of boom boxes and giant hi-fis that filled a room with sound. Now our music -- and devices -- are more portable, which is awesome, but if you want to share your tunes with a buddy you're stuck sharing headphones or using a splitter (which keeps you tethered together) or listen via your device’s tiny built-in speaker. With MyStream, you can use Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to play the same songs on two devices.
In true Street Fighter form, the expansion to the extremely popular iOS game Street Fighter IV, Street Fighter IV Volt, has received an update that will give players another two characters to choose from.
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.
