Cannibal Cookout for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad

image

Cannibal cookout is a fun cooking based game with a disturbing, yet funny, twist.  Rather than cooking with normal materials like many other cooking apps, you are a cannibal so you cook with other creatures.  The main game play screen has a large pot with boiling water in the middle, fire underneath and some trees and bushes in the background.  To beat each level you need to cook enough of the creatures to satisfy your character.

To cook one of these creatures you simply tap it and drag it into the boiling water where it will sit for a moment before going into your hunger meter to fill you up.  While they are in the boiling water they have sad little voice bubbles which say, “AHHHH” and “OUCH” which while dark still manages to be cute.

PicFlick for iPad App Review

image

The PicFlick app is a photo management app which is designed to help people organize and share pictures and other images on their iPad, iPad 2 and iPad 3 devices.  This app allows users access to dozens of great features which are not supported by default on these devices.  These features will make it much easier to store your pictures in a way that is far easier and more intuitive. 

You can also edit your photos quickly and easily from within the app.  This includes functions such as cropping the images, centering the image how you’d like, re-size the picture, rotate it and much more.  While the app does not allow full editing like photo shop or something similar, it can handle the majority of what most people want to do to their pictures.



Tether your laptop to your iPhone with no additional carrier charges

image

Ever been stuck lacking internet on your laptop but still had your iPhone or iPad? It can be a huge drag; I just moved and made the critical mistake of assuming that there was internet already installed and I'd just need to call them up and have them flip it on. It shouldn't have been too much of a gamble as our town has near 100% coverage of FTTH (Fiber To The Home.) Nevertheless, I picked a house with no internet, and it will be a week or so until it can be installed.



Save a tree, use Paper by 53

image

After a hiatus from writing, I couldn't really contain myself anymore, and wanted to share a great little app Paper by 53 (free) available from the app store.  It's hard to describe how elegant and useful this app is without giving some example of how you could use it, in my case as a journal sketching out concepts for piece of jewlery.  This app is sweet!



Limited Time Offer - Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD available at HALF PRICE!

image

One of my all-time fav games ever, Galaxy on Fire 2™ HD, is on sale for a limited time at 50% off ($4.99). This game is a smorgasbord of awesome 3D space action and adventure for iPad and iPhone! You can spend hours just trading and exploring/hopping from world to world, building your own home grown weapons, and upgrading your ship. Sometimes, for kicks I turn guns on a friendly, become a space pirate and see how long I can survive! Of course, you can also immerse yourself fully in the storyline and play along with the main game objectives. Whichever way you go, it's just good old-fashioned fun and it's now half priced! More info follows the break...

image

For the most part, we’re all well aware that the App Store is a pretty big deal. With over 500,000 apps and counting, it’s grown to be of great value to iOS devices. But you may not realize that the Mac App Store is making some substantial growth as well…



What If You Don't Have Siri? A Look At Personal Voice Assistant Alternatives To Siri.

image

   Not to negate the progress that has been made recently in the area of artificial intelligence vocal assistant apps, but relatively speaking, this technology, at a consumer level, is still in its infancy. Even Siri is technically still a BETA release. So we can expect to see some glitches and hang ups in all of the current alternatives for vocal assistant software. That said, some are definitely better than others.
