Dudeski asks just one question: are you rad enough to be a Shred Lord? Evoking fond memories of classic Windows game SkiFree (or MacSki for veteran Mac-heads), the game at its core is an arcade-style take on downhill skiing. Red and blue gates check your progress against a pursuing avalanche and a host of gnarly obstacles waiting to trip you up, while fast-moving pixel graphics and cheery chiptune music lend a light, playful air to what is an inherently difficult game.
If you’re in an area currently blitzed by heavy snowfall, you’ll likely appreciate the distraction offered up by the frantically challenging Dawn of the Plow. Taking the wheel of a pixelated plow in a lo-fi world of cars, snow, and asphalt, you’ll battle to keep the roads clear for the never-ending influx of traffic. It’s at once silly, hectic fun and frustrating brutality, punctuated by chirpy chiptune music.
We'd like to simply associate the holidays with the good times we have with our family members. Unfortunately, we all know the hassle that comes before you ever walk in the door and get greeted by your loved ones. Traveling during this time of the year is more painful than any of the awkward moments you may experience gathered around long-unseen relatives, but you can cut out some of the stressful parts of making it home for the holidays with the help of these eight apps. Sure, they can’t quite teleport you to your destination, but at least the trip there will be a little smoother.
The holiday season is upon us once again, and no matter the celebration of your choice, it's sure to come with equal parts enjoyment and stress. There are dishes to be made, gifts to be bought, decorations to be hung, and trips to be made, all on top of your everyday responsibilities. It’s easy to get so caught up in the holiday hustle and bustle that your cards for family and friends sit on the counter until it’s too late to send them out in time. This year, skip shoving the cards into the nearest mailbox at the last second and send them using these helpful apps for sharing holiday greetings.
Touchscreen gloves in April? Tell it to our friends in the Midwest and Colorado right now. (And shoutout to anyone else who has snow and isn't too excited about it.) Newer Tech's NuTouch Gloves are the first step toward admitting that you're addicted to your iPhone since you can't even keep your hands off it when it's cold and gross outside and if you don't wear gloves your fingers will go numb.
Brrr! If you live almost anywhere in Northern America, it's getting pretty cold outside. Even San Diego is a toasty 43 degrees as we're writing this.
