Each week the AppStore keeps surprising us with a bigger selection of new games than before, and this week is no exception. Fight fires and rescue civilians in Mighty Switch Force! Hose it Down! or liberate London from a psychopath in Tempo. If scoring is more your game, have some fun with Dig2China! and Run Bird Run. And if love is on your mind this Valentine’s Day, Staying Together will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Following on from Kuler (now Color CC), Adobe Brush CC can convert anything an iOS device camera can see into a high-quality brush. Adobe Shape CC goes one step further, converting objects into fully editable vector shapes that can be tweaked in Illustrator Draw for iPad, as well as Illustrator or Photoshop CC on the desktop.
We're always fascinated to see how developers reach for new horizons within the App Store, and our New App Recap for this week certainly offers a number of unique solutions to very real problems. Whether you need to improve your vision without the need for reading glasses, paint without being an artist, or manage your work schedule with ease, we've got the apps you'll need to accomplish these goals, along with others for tackling email, keeping up with the latest news, finding a movie in the theater, tracking down the latest clothing styles, and tackling your reminders. It's one of our most productive recaps ever, so let's dig in!
We've got a little something for the shutterbugs out there who want to do some tricks with their iPhone cameras, but we've also got games for a wide variety of interests this week. An expensive language app series gets a serious price drop and a pricey email app packed with tools gets a slightly smaller shave. And finally, you can answer the question: how long can you go without moving your phone? All that and more inside.
Last week gave us a plethora of awesome games, and things aren’t letting up yet with titles like Game of Thrones: Episode 2, Transformers: Battle Tactics, and Evoland hitting the AppStore. Challenge yourself with the deceptively simple charms of The Hardest Flight and Sinking Feeling or relax with the interactive comic book appeal of The Detail. Want to save some piggies? Ammo Pigs is for you. Have a look.
While it may appear that Apple’s Keynote and Microsoft PowerPoint have presentation solutions pretty well sewn up on iPad, both pale in comparison to the respective desktop versions. The makers of one cloud-connected app — Flowboard — have turned these limitations into an opportunity to deliver desktop-class tools on tablets.
It's already Groundhog Day here in the U.S., and the scruffy little rodent named Punxsutawney Phil has already prognosticated we have six more weeks of winter ahead of us. Thankfully, the App Store is chock full of some new selections to make the time pass quicker, including a convenient way to put push notifications to work, a new mobile email client from Microsoft, a handy app for learning how to play your favorite tunes, how to take control of your Mac, and even a special version of Vine that's just for kids. It's all right here in our first New App Recap for the month of February, so sit back and enjoy!
We've got a couple of dueling top-shelf calendar apps on sale this week, so pick your team and run with it if you want something that puts Apple's stock calendar app to shame. But wait, there's more! We've also got dueling price chops on to-do apps, note taking apps that let you write on the screen, and even competing maps of the constellations. It's an ultimate app price drop showdown this week, so to arms, to arms! And to the App Store!
Many of us saw lots of snow this past week, and it appears the weather also triggered an avalanche from the AppStore. This week’s batch of games features the iOS version of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy as well as the first chapter in the episodic Sons of Anarchy: The Prospect. And you’ll definitely keep warm with puzzlers like Destructamundo and Yet it Moves. Just don’t forget to shovel the walkway in between gaming sessions.
Everyone loves a Super Bowl party. You don’t have to know what a drop-back pass is to enjoy it — between the snacks, the halftime show, and commercials, sometimes it seems that actual game isn't all that important. But if you're the host, it can be a stressful as a fourth-and-one on the goal line. Thankfully, with your iPhone, you can use these 8 apps to make sure that you keep everyone entertained, whether they're there to see the Pats or Katy Perry.
