Whether you use Google Chrome or not, you're most certainly familiar with web-apps -- functional sites that you can use in lieu of the apps in your dock. Chrome has made these sites particularly handy by making them easily accessible through your Chrome home screen and easily searchable through the Google Web Store. And, as with any other app store, there are lots of amazing apps in the Google Web Store, and some that are just plain worthless. Here's a round up of the best Chrome apps for Mac users.
The appropriately named John Kannon yells this to no one in particular in the first level of 9mm, since the hoods he’s targeting are huddled idiotically in a room below the skylight the badass cop is about to crash through. Then, cue the slow motion gunplay and predictable South Central-ish gangland soundtrack—while you’re taking out these worthless thugs with extreme prejudice, you may think to yourself, “Gee, I feel like I’ve played this game before.”
Last week, Google officially debuted Photovine for iOS users. Like Instagram and the horde of other photo sharing apps, Photovine enables you to take pictures and instantly share them with the world. The idea behind the service is to create communities through unique collections of photos that are called Vines, which is simply a name for a theme, topic or idea. Other users of the service can help the vine "grow" by adding pictures that contribute to the theme.
Photovine, which was built by an internal development team at Google, has no apparent tie-in to the search giant or any its services, including its social network, Google+. The app is not even available for Android devices. However, it's an interesting approach to sharing those well composed photos with a wider audience and could prove an interesting move into community photo sharing.
When we last left off with Puzzle Agent star Nelson Tethers, he'd successfully reopened the eraser factory in the mysterious Scoggins, Minnesota, but had many unanswered questions. What happened to the missing foreman? What's going on with the creepy gnomes that Nelson kept seeing? And who is that astronaut who plagues his dreams? Puzzle Agent 2 gets closer to answering these questions, but creates a host of new ones in the process. No one ever said being a puzzle agent was going to be easy.
Ah, back-to-school season. It used to be about spiral notebooks and Trapper Keepers, but now that everyone has iPads and iPod touches, the first day of school is all about showing off your shiny new apps. We've tracked down 10 of the best that'll keep your grades as high as your cool factor.
The awesome developers over at Kairosoft have revealed that their next iOS release will be a port of their Android game, Grand Prix Story. It's a fairly well regarded game, but the release will come with a catch.
With a few exceptions, mascot kart racers are generally a phenomenon to approach with caution and trepidation. It may seem like fun when a well-loved company takes a bunch of their most beloved characters, outfits them with racing gear, special abilities, and weapons, and sends them on their merry way through a variety of themed tracks. But often these sorts of projects don’t reflect the same level of polish and care a fan might expect from Company X’s flagship titles themselves.
Not the case with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing...
August, the month that could really use a holiday but doesn't have any for some crazy reason, is dragging on. It's Friday again.
