Top 5 Time-Wasting Apps For 2016

Top 5 Time-Wasting Apps For 2016

Differences of opinion are what keep us innovative and interesting. Cats vs Dogs, New York pizza vs Chicago pizza, iOS vs Android, everyone has their preference – and in our internet culture, something to say about it. But regardless of where you fall on the love/hate plains of marmite, I think one thing we can all agree on is that 2016 has been a particularly somber year. Time-wasting comes in many forms; procrastinating away from…

Halloween Special: 25% Off USB TurboCharger 7000 for the Next Week!

Getting stuck in an elevator is bad.  Getting stuck in an elevator without charge on your mobile phone is even worse.  Getting stuck in an elevator with a rabid wolf (and not being able to dial out for pet rescue) is worse still, but you probably shouldn’t have got in it in the first place, should you?  The lovely people over at Proporta want to help you avoid these sticky situations by offering a whopping…

Amazing Beat: Hit Me With Your Rhythm App

Amazing Beat: Hit Me With Your Rhythm App

Despite being amazingly popular in East Asia, the rhythm-based game never quite found its feet in the West. Sure, we’ve had a few over the years, but none seem to have stuck apart from those rickety old platform things you often find in the corner of seaside arcades. Which is a shame, as not only are they useful for musicians to brush up on their time-keeping, they’re also incredibly satisfying to play for the average…

Newsmeter: Who Knew New News Could Be So Simple?

Newsmeter: Who Knew New News Could Be So Simple?

‘She decided to surprise him – but know one expected THIS reaction!’ is the kind of tiresome headline that seems to perpetuate the Internet these days. The plague of Facebook feeds for months now, these desperate, sad attempts have been transparent from day one, yet nothing seems to slow their advance. Of course, they don’t constitute news per se, but they are presented as such. Real, noteworthy news gets lost in the flood of nonsense,…

Walking War Robots: Not Your Daddy’s Robot Wars

Walking War Robots: Not Your Daddy’s Robot Wars

The app title immediately induced flashbacks to the late 90s television phenomenon Robot Wars, where teams of well-meaning Dads and awkward sons pitted their garage-made creations against each other while the eternally irritating Craig Charles cackled and blathered away in the background. Thankfully, Walking War Robots, the fearsome new gaming app from ace developer Pixonic, is very far removed from the aforementioned Saturday evening family fare peddled by the BBC. In short, it’s epic. The…

Ninja Rain: Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head And Eviscerating Me

Ninja Rain: Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head And Eviscerating Me

With a title that sounds like a classic samurai epic from Akira Kurosawa, Ninja Rain comes bursting on to the app scene for iOS and Android. Neat little time-passing game that it is, you might conjure up images of sword fights and flying shurikens. However, as it turns out, ninjas are wimps. Their secret is out. I think back to my trip to Japan in 2012. We experienced a good few rainstorms, and now that I…

Marble Mountain: An Epic Adventure In The Guise Of An Old Classic

Marble Mountain: An Epic Adventure In The Guise Of An Old Classic

Who remembers the 1984 arcade classic Marble Madness? Not many, I’d wager. Though hopelessly outdated by contemporary standards, in its day it was innovative and addictive, simple to grasp yet complex to master. The good folks at Lightning Rock have taken the aforementioned game and used it as a creative springboard for their first commercial iOS release, Marble Mountain. But have they been successful in transposing an old idea to new technology? Roll on the…

You’re Safe Inside This Virtual Gambling Den

You’re Safe Inside This Virtual Gambling Den

Real casinos can be intimidating. Croupiers shuffling cards faster than the speed of sound, their blank faces indifferent to loss or win, the suited man next to you with the seemingly bottomless wallet, stereo cries of joy and pain, endless amounts of rattling chips and the sharp swish of dealt cards. It takes a Jedi-like mindset to concentrate on winning anything at all. Do you ever wish you could cut out all the distractions and…

SMTA Offers Fantastic Interactive Short Film Experience On Your iPhone

Ever since watching Jerry Maguire, whenever I ask someone to to show me something singular, I bellow it, Cuba Gooding Jr.-style.  This may cause a bit of a scene when I order my morning coffee at Starbucks (“SHOW ME THE CAPPUCCINO!”), nonetheless, I’ve enjoyed commanding my iPhone to Show Me The Animation every time that I want to view one of the app’s excellent short films.
