It’s the weekend once more, and we’re glad to be bringing you some fresh and fun new App Store games you can relax with.
This week, you’ll rescue a teddy bear, do some dungeon crawling, fix damaged art, kick cats and build a community, so you had better click through and get started! (more…)
The moment you see the start screen for Temple Run 2, you know something is different. It looks familiar, extremely reminiscent of the original, but with a makeover. It’s like somebody repainted your favourite bedroom and it just looks a little more polished than it did before. And that’s the sort of thing that applies to the visual overhaul that Imangi Studios has given Temple Run with the sequel.
The game retains the same premise as before. But Temple Run 2, like any great Hollywood sequel, expands on the premise with new concepts, characters and more spectacular action. It’s just an endless-runner game, but its prequel was universally hailed as the first and best. Temple Run 2 has a lot to live up to. (more…)
Welcome to Poshmark, a virtual consignment store that allows you to shop the closets of users all over the United States, as well as sell your own gently used items and earn cash for them.

All of these and other items that have been relegated to the far recesses of your closet can now be posted to Poshmark to find better homes and fill your wallet. Click “more” and we’ll take a look.

There are lots of ways to keep track of the stuff you want to do, but I’m not talking about the dumb stuff like grocery shopping or organizing your garage. Who wants to do that? That’s why you have to get an app to remind you to do it, and boy howdy, are there a lot of apps for that kind of stuff.
Your options can be more limited if you want to keep track of the fun stuff you want to do, things that are completely unrelated to your groceries. Done Not Done, an app for keeping track of all of the books, music and movies you haven’t gotten around to yet, is trying to cover the fun stuff, though. We’ll take a look and find out if Done Not Done’s to do lists and social recommendations are any better than a plain checklist. (more…)
It wasn’t until relatively recently that I used my iPhone for an alarm clock. I had debated it for years, but after hearing about people having issues with time zone changes and all that, I just figured that it was best to use the old standby that sat on my dresser. Eventually, I changed my mind and went the iPhone route, and that’s been that.
Recently, however, I’ve thought about how I wake up. Usually it’s with a start, which isn’t the best way to begin your day for sure. I’ve started looking at different alarm clock options, and wondering what our readers use when they want to get out of bed.
So what’s your story? How do you wake up? Let us know in the poll to the right!
It’s been said many times before on AppStorm, and I’ll say it again — the App Store is littered with to-do apps. Ranging in price and functionality, an abundance of options are at your disposal if you’re in the market for an app that will help manage your task list. Basic users may be satisfied with the Reminders app that comes pre-installed on the iPhone, or may prefer simplified to-do apps like Clear. Mid-range users that need a little more functionality may choose an app like Things, while advanced users may go with OmniFocus.
With so many to-do apps to choose from, how does one standout? In the case of 2 Days, developer Ngoc Luu decided to take a unique approach by changing the way users thinks about task management. (more…)
God of Blades is exactly the sort of game I would have died for when I was thirteen years old. At that time, The Return of the King was a hit movie and smacking things around with swords was top priority for any guy my age. It’s also around that time that God of War came out on PS2. It was a cool time to like swords.
In that sense, God of Blades feels a little bit nostalgic for me. I feel a little bit like I’m revisiting my youth. But the older part of me — the part that prefers Letterpress over hacking and slashing — really disagrees. (more…)
A few weeks back, I get this Facebook invite for a party held downtown. I’m all excited about going, so I RSVP via Facebook, and next thing I know I’m planning for the big event. Then I get an email. “If you’re coming, please RSVP using Eventbrite, that’s how we’ll know who’s coming.” Huh. Eventbrite.
Although I had heard of the app before, this was my first opportunity to try it out, so that’s just what I did. What were the results? Well let’s find out! (more…)
