I love RTS (real-time strategy) games, especially when they provide a brigade of options, smart enemies, and adaptive play. I hate reviewing them, however, because it requires a ton of screens and mucho things to describe (hint: skip to the end and watch the embedded video). When I found out LASW from Isotope244 hit the App store, I knew I would just have to suck it up, and review it.
Do you work around water? Are you afraid to get stuck in the rain with your iPad? Do you wish you could take your iPad on your boat or to the beach this summer? If you answered yes to any of those questions, check out the water-protective cases by Trendy Digital.
Crafted from recycled tire rubber, NinjaGrips are not only eco-friendly, but they work! These easy-to-install backings come in five styles and fit snugly on the back of your iPad to prevent it from slipping from your hand.
I have the “Industrial” design, which provides extra grip along the back edges when I have my iPad out of its case. What I particularly like about NinjaGrips is that, although the backing is rough, it’s not scratchy. It’s comfortable on the hands; something I didn’t expect.
Oy. Seriously. I think the glare off the iPad could trigger a migraine. If it's aimed right, it could temporarily blind someone. I've ordered a anti-glare screen online - as they aren't in the Mac Store. I can't wait for it to get here!!! The smudges don't bother me as much, at the moment. They dull the glare.
I use MobileMe. I love MobileMe. But what do you do if you don't use, love or even like MobileMe? What do you do if you want to be able to sync your calendar with your family - but you don't want to shell out $99 a year or $149 a year for the family pack?
I have the solution....Google. Yes, Google. Google's Gmail is free and so is access to their calendar. Here are some screen shots how to set it up on your iPhone, iPad or iTouch.
This summer (or anytime), when your youngsters say "I'm bored", have them check out The Reading Game from LegendApps.
The app itself is not something you read. Rather, the app encourages kids to read their favorite books and come back to the app to mark off how many pages they have read. As milestones are met, rewards (funny sounds, animations, etc.) are unlocked.
The app's custom graphics are beautiful and even though the app is not compiled for the iPad, they render well in the 2X mode.
If your i-Pod/Pad/Phone is lost or damaged, your restore information is only as good as your last backup or sync.
Same goes for your computers. Backup those bad boys.
Say it with me.......SYNC OR LOSE

It’s a sad but true statement – if a dual stick shooter has you controlling some sort of character toting a gun, it will probably be compared to iDracula or Minigore. The reality is that these two games set the bar incredibly high for this style of game play, so it stands to reason the question would be “how does game X compare to the top of the heap?” Well, in the case of Demon Hunter, one of the newest entries in this ever expanding club, the answer is that it kind of falls short. It’s not bad,, but it’s not great either. And I’m a bit perplexed but the lack of demons in a demon hunting game.
