App Review: Dress the Royals

image

Dress the Royals ($.99), is an app that lets you customize the wardrobe of the Royal Family to get them ready for the Royal Wedding. It's a nice little game for kids, as the wardrobe selections for each member of the family ranges from serious to very wacky. I found the interphase to be abit confusing at times, and I imagine If I can't figure it out, neither will kids. Nevertheless, it's an app that's not meant to be taken very seriously.

As a kid in the '80's, I grew up playing Kevin Flynn's videogames such as Space Paranoids and of course, TRON.  So naturally I believe that Flynn Lives... how could someone so brilliant just disappear?  Now there's a documentary, TRON: Legacy, that suggests he may have evolved into something different... something extraordinary.  I don't know what to make of it, but you should check it out for yourself.  If movies aren't your thing, there's an app for that.

image

 

Flash video and the iPad work together about as well as Karl Marx and a Capitalist market. Or something like that. Since the dawn of time (early 2010 according to Steve Jobs) man has struggled to find an end to this conundrum, by finding a way to display Flash content on the iPad. Various entrants have attempted this feat, but none has been able to seamlessly play Flash video while browsing. The latest entrant to attempt to end this struggle comes to us from iSwifter.

Here is what iSwifter promises from within the app, “full-featured Flash web browsing.” A pretty bold claim, if you ask me. Let’s see how well it holds up under scrutiny.
