I would say MY Powerbeats Pro arrived, but they aren’t actually mine. I am taking a look at them so I can write a little about them, but they will belong to my wife very soon. Wednesday was her birthday, so these are her Combo bday/Mother’s Day gift. She was kind enough to let me […]

Don’t download Word Forward if you’re looking for an easy or relaxing word game. Word WarDeveloper Rocketship Park has just released a new version of the devious puzzler that first landed back in 2014. And the rebuilt version is just as difficult, and fun, as the original.

The tiles can be linked in...

For anyone with different social media images, you can even select which one to use. You won’t have to log in to any social networks for the app to work. Vignette runs entirely on the phone and contacts aren’t transmitted...

Ok, so if you're like me, you've been playing (and sometimes waiting) your way through AFK Arena, only to learn there's a lot more to it than there appears on the surface. There's guilds, a PvP arena, and all sorts of other systems and game modes to pay attention to, and–quite frankly–it can be confusing. Today, I want to talk about the latest update to AFK Arena. This update adds some nice quality of life features, but also adds in some new systems and even a couple new heroes. Check out...

Logitech’s Slim Combo for the previous gen 12.9″ iPad Pro was my favorite keyboard case of all time by leaps and bounds. It checked all the boxes. It offered protection without too much added bulk. It could be positioned at a wide range of angles thanks to the hinged kickstand. The keyboard section could be […]

Solar Explorer: New Dawn is a lunar lander game that really ratchets the intensity up to 11. With all of the asteroids flying around as you fly around at seemingly breakneck speeds, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed bythe whole thing. They key to the game is really keeping your cool, even when it seems like things are going very, very wrong. It’s always possible that with some focus—and perhaps a little luck—you can land in one piece. Here are some tips to keep in mind to help you brave New...

I am someone who wrote Hearthstone off a while ago. It was hard not to try and stick with it. The game has incredible production values and a core of really great talent working on the game continuously to keep it feeling fresh and fun (full disclosure: I have a friend who actively works on Hearthstone). I can appreciate all of that from a distance, but when it came to actually playing the game, I would always bounce off of it. It took me a while to realize, but the thing that always stuck in...

Maybe that’s taking it to the extreme, but Tim Cook made it clear last week in a meeting of the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board that he, Apple as a whole, and some other Silicon Valley companies see coding as a skill that doesn’t require a traditional four year degree for productive job consideration and […]

Here we go again. After thoughts that an all-out trade war with China had been averted, President Donald Trump has thrown fresh gas and lumber on a fire that seemed like it was burning down to embers. First there was another round of tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods. Then there was an Executive […]

You usually won’t catch me saying anything nice about Toolame. I’m a graduate of Louisiana State University and the Greenie Meanies are typically viewed by us as the expensive private school to the south that was once a rival, but now a runt. However, despite my distaste of their athletic programs, I can’t ignore Tim […]

Are you sick of waiting on an Apple solution to wireless charging? If so, you definitely aren’t alone. Now that we finally have a way to wirelessly charge our AirPods, the absence of the AirPower seems even crazier. However, if you are tired of waiting and want to save some money, you can get a […]

Charging cables aren’t known for being smart, but there is something to said for one that is. The Mcdodo Lightning Bolt 3 is just such a cable, with LED lights showing charge status, overcharge protection and event the ability to stop the flow of current to prevent device overheating after charging is complete.

Steam Link has finally released for iOS! That’s right, you can play your epic backlog of PC games on the go now. Well… sort of.

Check out the video above to see what it looks like in action, and be sure to ignore my amateur Into the Breach skills. For some more detailed written impressions, see below: [Read more]

Apple was dealt a setback today, as the US Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 that individual purchasers do have the right to sue them for antitrust behavior. Today’s vote stems from a 2011 lower court case, Apple v Pepper, in which a group of individuals sued the company claiming they were using monopoly pricing power […]

I reviewed UAG’s Metropolis cases for the 11″ and 12.9″ iPad Pros earlier this year and came away very impressed with both. I can give the 12.9″ version even higher praise in that I am still using it as my primary case over four months later. It is good at home, but even better at […]

Kingdom Rush: Vengeance just got updated once again to add more content to the game. This addition, called The Frozen Nightmare, adds three new levels, five new enemies, two new heroes, and some new achievements. Overall, it’s not a huge amount of additional content, but it is free, so it’s hard to complain about. In case you’re thinking about whether it’s worth buying or re-downloading Kingdom Rush Vengeance to check out The Frozen Nightmare, here’s everything you need to know about it. [Read...

I've long assumed that the iPad would eventually replace paper for the majority of day-to-day tasks. While that hasn't happened yet, and faltering sells figures might suggest that it will never happen, I'm still confident that it's almost inevitable.   Larger and smaller iPads have increased the usefulness of the platform. The iPad mini is a near perfect web and social media browsing device and the iPad Pro has expanded the range of content that can easily be created with iOS to near Mac...

A top 10 list from Creative Bloq features some of my personal favourite iPad apps. It's no surprise to find classic apps such as Procreate and Duet Display taking the number 1 and 8 spots respectively, but there are a few surprises too. Check out the full list at Creative Bloq.

I'm really enjoying these GarageBand tutorials by Arvid Sandgren. His presentation style is very simple, but he still manages to convey all the information you need to get the cover version made.

I've only just found Arvid's YouTube channel, so I'm still playing through the 40 or so iPad GarageBand tutorials on offer, including Photograph by Ed Sheeran, as shown above. I really like Arvid's method of teaching, it's quick, but not too quick. There are few better ways of learning how to use GarageBand than to create a complete cover track. It may not satisfy that creative urge, but it will help you become proficient enough with GarageBand to help you on your way. Plus you'll learn...

First, a little clarification about the apparent demise of this website. It's still alive, just. It's hard to get enthused about a product if the company that created that product doesn't appear to know what to do with it. The iPad has been a phenomenal success for Apple, but despite an encouraging start it seems to have become a device for consuming media other people have created rather than a device for creating things yourself. This is despite a huge number of third party applications...

If you find that writing or drawing your plans out by hand helps you to get them in order, you’re far from alone. But storing things digitally does tend to make them easier to find and sort. Carbo bridges the gap between these two, letting you take (or import) photos of drawings on paper or whiteboard, then digitizing them. It clears out things like the paper, leaving you with only the information itself. It’s not the first app to try something like this, but its results are among the most...

There's still no watchOS 2 update in sight from Apple on Thursday, but Cupertino certainly isn't neglecting another upcoming software release. Our Thursday edition of Apple Daily has the details on a new OS X 10.11.1 beta seed now making the rounds to developers ahead of the initial public release on September 30, along with numbers on early iOS 9 adoption and a more detailed look at some of Steve Jobs' most dramatic moments with Universal's second full trailer.iOS 9 Adoption Rate Roughly...

I recently came across this thoughtful article over at Fast Company. It's well worth reading and echoes many of my own thoughts on where Apple might lead the iPad's creative community. There's still much that can be done by both Apple and iPad developers to expand the capability of the worlds leading tablet computer. It's true that some of that initial fizz of excitement has evaporated over the last 12 months (and that's been reflected in the amount of content on this site), but I'm hopeful...

In 1992, PC games were making serious waves in the industry. They were more complex than console games and offered a level of depth that had not yet been established in the world of pixels. Horror games were also starting to creep into the mainstream. Sure, there weren’t a bunch of zombie dogs ready to […]
