If you're selling games on the App Store and Christmas rolls around, it never hurts to go all in. That being said, the cool cats at Avallon Alliance have announced that, in collaboration with Santa, the company will be giving away all of its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad games for free during the Christmas holidays.
You can't go wrong with a good RPG-style medieval slasher like Infinity Blade and developer ChAIR is sweetening the deal. Starting Tuesday, the company will release its first free content update via the App Store on December 10.
Four new job posts on Apple’s website late last week seem to indicate that the company may be searching for iOS software engineers with “experience developing navigation software” -- could a built-in navigation app be part of the iOS 5 mix?
Acceleroto’s Air Hockey for iOS has been around since the doors first opened on the App Store, so it’s no surprise that the company is preparing to duplicate the success of their popular app by making it available in the Mac App Store as well. Here’s a peek.
Spotlight, the search utility for Mac OS X, was migrated initially to iOS 3.0 and remains a viable part of iOS 4.0 and higher. It's very useful, and since its initial release it's gained some nice features. This week, we'll show you some tips that'll help you get the most out of this utilitarian feature.
After months of anticipation, Infinity Blade has finally come to Apple's iOS platform--and it will do its very best to take every cent of your lunch money if you're not sure of what you're doing.
Set in a medieval age, Infinity Blade puts you in the role of an unnamed hero who must fight his way through the multiple champions of a castle in order to take on and try to defeat a mysterious figure known as the God King. Despite your best efforts and intentions, you will not succeed--or at least, not the first time through.
So, without further ado, here's what several hours spent working towards (and finally) defeating the God King taught me this past weekend.
Google recently updated the mobile version of Google Docs for the iPad to allow editing while on-the-go, however, it wasn't as full-featured as you may have hoped. Today, however, you can access the full Desktop version of Google Docs right from Safari on your iPad. In this how to, we'll show you how you can enable this desktop version for all of your document editing needs.
Type "Twitter" in the App Store search bar and you will find page after page of apps, apps with integration, apps that convert voice to tweets, apps for image posting and searching, apps that only update your status and don't show you anything else at all, apps for this and apps for that. However, when you break it down, Twitter app users typically fall into one of two categories: users of the official Twitter app and users of popular third party solution, TweetDeck. Which one is the right one for you? Well, we guess that really depends.
Let’s face it: we’re all waiting for Markus “Notch” Persson to bring an official version of “Minecraft” to the iOS platform. The second it goes on the App Store at a reasonable price, we’re downloading it and enjoying the heck out of the block-building, mineral harvesting, fortress building, enemy defending and slaying goodness that comes with it.
We also plan on playing until sleep and adequate social skills are but distant memories...but shh, don't tell anyone.
Still, there’s the downtime between now and the final release and not much that can be done about it, no matter how much you insist that you want the official version of Minecraft to arrive on the App Store. In the meantime, Ari Ronen’s “Eden – World Builder” will just have to be the methadone fix for the Minecraft heroin you’re craving.
Onlive has become both a nifty and cool thing and now it's sort of on the iPad. On Tuesday, OnLive released its Viewer app for the iPad. The app, which lives up to its name, allows you to watch live games occurring around the world as well as Brag Clips, trailers and allows for the creation and maintenance of friend lists for the Onlive gaming service.
