Self improvement and self help apps/books are legion in the app store. Typically an array of boiled-down quotes or ideas (from some guru's book) arranged in course-like tabulated views. Boring squared is usually my first impression. In contrast, the Rich Dad Poor Dad app powered by Clutch brings fresh presentation and snappy interface features to the old self-help saw...
Before there was Xbox and PlayStation, and way back before even Nintendo and Atari 2600 (think waaay back), there was a world domination strategy game (played with tiny plastic pieces on a flat game-board) that was so earth shatteringly cool that it defied description. No computer screen rendering was required to imagine the massing of superior firepower to encircle and destroy your enemies. That game was the legendary game of Risk (still sold by Hasbro today), and it was nothing less than epic (if you actually had friends to play it with). If one could have imagined the real combat coordination and visualization that was missing from Risk, I believe Machines at War 3 ($6.99) would not have been far off the mark!
The loadout for musicians is rapidly changing. Companies like IK Multimedia are redefining the way musicians interact with their instruments. One example of this is the company’s recently released iRig BlueBoard ($99.99). Instead of having MIDI cables snake across the floor from foot pedals to control boards, the iRig BlueBoard communicates MIDI transitions wirelessly via Bluetooth. How well does this work? Read on to find out.

Have you ever played fantasy football and felt like you were limited in your head-to-head matchups at times? Or thought to yourself if only you had picked the player who's lighting up the boards and costing you a win? Well, RotoPop, a new fantasy football app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad aims to provide a fun experience that will alleviate all of those anxieties.
My bio underneath the articles I write for iPhone Life Magazine say "an iPhone is almost always attached to his hip." And that's true, but I'm not satisfied with most of the holsters I've used to date. They are typically plastic and prone to breaking, or they don't swivel, leading to inevitable jabs to my side or stomach when entering or exiting the car. I'm always on the lookout for something better.
You open the box and remove the object, which is still and inert, but filled with potential. It will need power, a shock to start its heart, to ignite the apple at its core. But first it must be unwrapped. The powerless slab lies completely encased in a clear, thin, suffocating film. Quietly it waits. Magic contained in a box.
Peel its clear skin back and reveal the underlying structure. Plug it in. Let the lightning flow. The clear skin lies in piles on the side, used and discarded…
Is that how you experienced opening your iPad?
Most everyone knows that there's no shortage of Zombie-themed games in the App Store. From cool photo apps to lighthearted and whimsical romps, it seems like the plethora of Zombie games for iDevices are only adding to the national fervor for the undead. I keep wondering are they (the powers that be) trying to prepare us for something? Well whatever the case may be, conspiracy or not, there’s no denying that Zombies have never been more of a social phenomena. And to celebrate this Halloween, I've rounded up six of the best Zombie First Person Shooters in the App Store.
Be warned though, these aren't your Plants vs Zombies cartoonish fare; the games featured here are graphic and terrifying, not for the faint of heart and not necessarily for young kids. What we have here are six of the most realistically rendered, and graphically depicted horrorfests on iOS. Read on if you are looking for a good Zombie massacre game that will likely keep you up late into the night playing, and then haunt your dreams with terrors of the undead...
I’ve been a fan of Star Wars since before a vast majority of hardcore iOS players were born. And as much as I hate to admit it, I was sucked into the Angry Birds phenomenon just like so many other players. When the first Angry Birds Star Wars game was released, however, I was curious but also dumbfounded. Was Rovio that needy to expand the franchise—and for that matter, was LucasArts so desperate for some name recognition in the mobile world? I basically ignored the first installment; but when I saw they had released Angry Birds Star Wars II ($0.99), I decided it was time to see what the appeal was. In some ways I actually admire how they’ve melded together the two franchises. Overall though, I’m not finding the experience quite as entertaining as the original game that started it all. At least they were kind enough to include a playable Yoda character in the mix.
Halloween is upon us, and among other things, that means it’s time for my annual roundup of some of the spookiest iOS games in the App Store. Trust me on this, these games are not for the faint of heart; many of them carry the App Store’s 17+ rating for mature themes and graphic violence. If you are looking for creepy games that may scare your pants off and set your adrenaline flying off the charts, read on to learn about some of the more disturbing games on the iOS platform.
I recently had the pleasure of reviewing the current line-up of Incipio iPhone 5 cases. Even as an admitted iPhone case junkie, I had a tough time picking a favorite!
