Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:



Burst! Time Kill for 2012!

image

Looking for a time killer physics game this New Year's Eve while waiting for the ball to drop? Check out Burst!... Pretty simple concept. Swipe to shoot arrows at balloons. Even a monkey could play Burst! Not only would he play it, but he would love it probably, and maybe get the top score on Game Center. The game has some kind of backstory and special play modes, but I mean really...who cares? Shoot the darn balloons and move along to the next level, right? The monkey does not care why... I make joke now, but nevermind. Read on for the full press release DL below...



Friends Map for Facebook Review

image

This app gives you a quick and easy way to use your phone's GPS to check in on Facebook, and to find where your friends have checked in from recently as well.  It will also provide you with some useful information such as where the nearest cafe or hotel is, and quite a bit more to. The app is pretty simple to use and seems to be pretty accurate as far as where it has you check in from.  If you don't have many friends who check in from their GPS phones than there won't be much information on your map but it can still be fun and as more and more people get smart phones this will likely become even more useful.



SugarSync Review - Flexible Cloud storage for everything!

image

SugarSync is a full-featured cloud backup and file syncing service (reviewed previously in our magazine by Doug Goldring here), but you can also create and edit documents on-line, play music from your synced collection, and transfer photos via iPad or other iOS device. There are clients for iOS, Android and several other mobile OS flavors, so you can sync from just about anywhere. I was specifically interested in the ability to write articles and save pictures and research to a consolidated folder I could later access on my computer. Currently, I use Evernote for the sometimes extensive article content I compile (mostly photo/text/weblink data), but it's somewhat aggravating to reformat everything for our blog editor later, so recently have taken to simply editing blog posts in raw HTML on our site (or in Notes), which is also a pain. SugarSync didn't bring my content together exactly the way I wanted, but it is a great file sync and backup product...

What I read this week - Great FREE reads available on iBooks!

image

 

First want to wish all of our readers a wonderful holiday and a safe and prosperous new year! For this installment of "What I ...." (yes, usually "played") instead of recent games I played, am instead focusing on some recent great reads I have found (via iBooks): Spinward Fringe, Turing Evolved, and Peace Warrior. All are excellent military sci-fi reads and free, so if SF is your thing then go grab them while they remain available gratis. If you like them as much as I did, then don't hesitate in supporting the authors, and buying the sequels or other works...



Wake Smarter Review - Not just another dumb alarm app!

image

The typical alarm clock will wake you in the morning by emanating a terrible pulsing screech or similarly upsetting noise. True that newer models offer better options than the 5AM screech, but wouldn't you rather your alarm clock do something smarter than that? Maybe tell you the weather, the latest news, your calendar events for the day followed by your favorite tunes (without commercials and other distractions)? Wake Smarter does all of those things. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that it uses voice recognition so you can even yell at it!
