Ahh, the movies! While people seem to be going to them less, they are still an experience like no other. But theaters are hurting and need your patronage. One way to get you into the theaters are the previews for movies that look so good you have to see them in the theater. Like most of us, I am not a fan of movie previews though. Even good ones are a part of a huge set that are so lengthy you tend to forget what movie you came to see. TimePlay is one theater chain’s way of getting you to be there for those previews by using fun to get you there early. Continue reading →

Looking for a game that’s so quick the boss won’t even register the lack of activity from you? Then look no further. With less than two minutes per turn, I bring you Scramble With Friends. Yes, once again our friends at Zynga have come up with an addictive game similar to Boggle that promises not to waste to much of your time, well… not large chunks at least. Continue reading →
As you may have seen in my other posts, I like playing games, and when it comes to my iPhone it usually involves games with a social aspect. It’s just more fun to play with your friends than a computer. While I still play Zynga’s Hanging With Friends and Texas Hold’em, my friends and family are always playing new games to keep us all from actually doing any work. One new game that I have been playing of late is Draw Something, the top paid and free app in Apple’s App Store from OMGPOP. It’s a simple concept where you draw something and your friends try to guess what it is. Continue reading →
Here’s a new game that will fit nicely into your iOS Games folder: Jetpack Joyride. If you’re a fan of Fruit Ninja or Age of Zombies, you’ll be happy to know that this addicting game was created by the same iOS game development company called HalfBrick. Not only is this game optimized for your iPad (no pixel stretching) and iPhone, HalfBrick also decided to change the price from $0.99 to free, but only for a limited time. Continue reading →
Imagine you have rocking tunes that you want to share with you buddy, but (gasp!) all he has is a gaming system attached to his TV! What do you do? While the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 have support for playing music from Windows devices, they don’t share media well when it comes to iPhones.
Sure, there is iPod support, but if you try plugging in your iPhone it just doesn’t work as well. However, there are a few applications for iOS that will let you play music though your Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 straight from your iPhone. One option is an app I recently found called AirMusic from Plutinosoft. Continue reading →
Zynga’s Poker is one of the largest free to play online poker games in the world. While I will be focusing on the iPhone and Facebook applications of the game, Zynga has also ported it over to Android, Yahoo, and Google+. With apps and games like Hanging With Friends and Words With Friends, I thought it was time to look at one of their first games. Continue reading →
2011 was another great year for iPhone apps. With over 600,000 apps now in the App Store and the Android Market closing in fast at half a million, mobile applications will continue to drive our generation of innovative and disruptive technologies. A number of trends highlighted this year. For instance, tablet devices like the iPad are becoming more mainstream in households. Continue reading →
At this very moment you’re staring at this website about to read an app review. I don’t know what brought you here – maybe you found a link on Twitter or Google’d your way in – but I do know that you, as a reader, have choices. You can skim all the way down to the bottom and look at the pictures, choose snippets to read, or watch the video review. Lucky you. Continue reading →
There ain’t no doubt about it: Google+ has been growing, growing, and growing. Two days ago, the service was reaching 18 million registered users and 2 million of those users registered in a single day.
It’s easy to associate Google+’s success to Google’s enormous reach in the tech industry and online, but if you dig a little deeper you’ll realize that mobile is really responsible for the its massive growth. The Google+ Android app has been downloaded at least 1 million times, and just two days ago Apple approved the official Google+ iPhone app. Just one day after it’s release, you can find the app as the top free app in Apple’s App Store.

Once upon a time there was a little app that allowed you to watch many different video formats on your iDevice without having to convert them first. But alas, The Powers That Be removed it from the App Store and only the Rebel Alliance (AKA jailbreak community) has access to it now. Yes, I know I’m confusing two different movies, but let me continue. Continue reading →
