Are you a leader or a follower? The answer to that question may determine how much use you'll get out of Poutsch, a free iPhone app that offers the answers to life's questions from the palm of your hand.
If you're a parent, you probably have either a Netflix or Amazon Instant Video subscription (or maybe even both) to keep the kiddies entertained. America's top two streaming providers are stepping up efforts to cater to parents which is great, but makes it hard for parents to stick with one service or the other, especially as the little ones change their taste so quickly. Read on to find out how Netflix and Amazon are duking it out for your dough in today's recap.
So, it seems as though Tim Cook was serious when he declared Apple was doubling down on secrecy. For the first time in years, we were actually surprised by the bulk of a WWDC keynote, from the audacious Mac Pro to the transcendent iOS 7.
To the surprise of approximately no one, however, was the lack of new hardware to run the shiny new operating system. Any iOS release--particularly one with so many radical changes--is going to need a fair amount of beta time before it's unleashed on the public, and there was absolutely no way Apple was going to announce a new iPhone for an old operating system.
So, autumn it is. But if you're hoping for a redesigned iPhone 6, I have some bad news for you: This year's iPhone won't look any different than last year's.
We're big fans of Logitech's Harmony remote controls, and even though the company may soon divest itself of the division, they're moving forward with a new Smart Control edition that puts mobile devices in control of the living room.
Companies are racing to get their Google Reader replacements out before the plug gets pulled on July 1, with the latest announcement coming from Digg, which plans to unveil its solution next week. Will Digg's service rise to be the cream of the crop, or will the RSS landscape simply become a fragmented mess in the wake of Google abandoning its service? Time will tell...
XCOM: Enemy Unknown made a big splash when it hit PC and consoles late last year--and Mac OS back in April--and now (as developer Firaxis promised back in March), it'll pop up on the App Store for iOS on Thursday for a mere $20. According to Firaxis, this redesigned version "takes the complete XCOM experience of the console and PC version of the game and optimizes it for the touch interface of iOS device."
The iOS games market generally isn’t defined by the kinds of action titles with pinpoint-precise controls that dominate consoles. That makes it all the more daring when a game on iPhone and iPad attempts to go in such a direction, and even more impressive when one does it well. Quadropus Rampage manages to leap that particular hurdle with relative ease, though the touch screen interface does keep the controls from feeling particularly on point.
Like its predecessors, Gangstar Vegas takes many of its cues from popular open-world action games like Grand Theft Auto and Saints Row, offering plenty of story-driven missions and a large setting to explore. As such, you can expect to drive around in stolen cars, engage in gunfights with random thugs, and perhaps even run over a pedestrian or two. It may not win any awards for innovation or originality, but this robust copycat offers plenty of pick-up-and-play entertainment if you can overcome its unreliable controls.
