There’s an app that let’s you create poems and have them read by William Shatner. I’m going to let that sink in, because yes, it is just that good. While it’s hard to see where the Shat doing what the Shat does could go wrong, I felt some trepidation launching Shatoetry for the first time.
Is there more to William Shatner’s new app than just hearing William Shatner say really funny things? To be honest, not really, but if a Shatner poetry slam is wrong, I know I don’t want to be right. (more…)
I think we all can agree that iTunes isn’t exactly the easiest thing to use, particularly if you have a mammoth library. There are lots of different components to the system, and it can be a bit unwieldy.
But now we have iTunes 11, a new version of the software that claims to be the best ever. Is it? Or does iTunes still need a little bit of work? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Some of the first video games have been deemed the greatest of all time, while others were simply given the title “Greatest of their time.” Not everyone will agree that Super Mario was the most revolutionary side-scrolling platform game that they played when they were little. That’s okay, because there are many other classics out there, like Pac-Man. It is still one of the undisputed champions of arcade gaming, whether you play it or not. The same goes for Tetris.
When it came to the iPhone back in 2009, there was nary a question that it would continue the heritage and bring it to its true mobile greatness. One could not argue that the Java version of this game, offered only on the primitive mobile phones of the early 2000s, was one of the best things that happened to it. With another step into the ever-growing market of technology and gaming alike, things can only get better for Alexey Pajitnov’s fine feather in his ushanka. Or can they? (more…)

First the original, then Seasons, then Rio, then Space, then Piggies and now Star Wars? At first I thought Rovio were running out of ideas; a collaboration between the somewhat serious Star Wars venture and a bunch of oversized quick-tempered birds seemed off the table. Despite my initial doubts, however, Rovio’s newest release is as addictive as ever.
Angry Birds Star Wars is that classic gameplay we all know and love put into a context that we are equally affectionate towards — that of the Star Wars franchise. This unlikely combination actually suprised me with its comical charm, something i wasn’t sure that would be retained. Will the birds still stay strong in this sequel? Let’s find out. (more…)
You know when you get to a new city and have dozens of things that you want to visit, or on the flipside have no idea what to do or where to go? You try mapping it all out and waste a couple of hours, try everyone’s patience in your group and don’t end up actually using your map because you’ve mistimed everything.
This is exactly what the founders of Citybot were trying to avoid when they came up with the brilliant idea to develop a travel planning app that helps you plan, organize and schedule the best activities for your trip.
Want to see what you’ve been missing? (more…)

I’m a calendar junkie. The way some people collect to-do apps, I tend to have lots of different calendars all over my iPhone, iPad and Mac, and very few stick. I’ll use one for a month or two, then off to the next or back to an old favorite. I have lots of different options.
But one that has stuck on my Mac is Fantastical. Not only is it quick and easy to use, but it’s just so natural. When I was contacted by the developers and given a sneak peek at the app, well I just had to jump on it. Will the magic transfer to my iPhone or is Fantastical a Mac-only purchase? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
