I need another social network in my life like I need a hole in my head. Let’s just get that out of the way right now: there’s no need for another Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr in my life, not when Pinterest, LinkedIn and even the new MySpace want a piece of my time. No, I’m fine with what I’ve got, thank you very much.

Then there’s Vine. At first, my usual “meh” response was triggered, but then I started learning more. Vine was recently acquired by Twitter, giving some legitimacy to the fledgling service. People have also used the service for a wide variety of things, including movies. So what allure does it have for me? Let’s find out. (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…)

Although social networking has gotten a lot of bad press lately with the likes of Facebook and Instagram, I will admit, I really like staying connected with people. When used properly, it can be a powerful tool to help you to stay informed and yet give you the opportunity to “meet” amazing people online.

One of the things that I love about social networking is to be able to see what other people are into, what the latest and greatest apps are, and what the cool things are that people are buying. There are some awesome tech toys that I own that I never would have known about if not for hearing about it first on Twitter. Another app that has been very intriguing for this purpose, called Mine, came out a little while ago and it has stuck on my first page ever since. It has been able to tie in social networking features in a different way than the likes of Facebook, Twitter and even Instagram. Will it get as big as those services? Not sure, but we can definitely take a deeper look at it. (more…)

Like it or loathe it, the increased desire to document and share each and every aspect of daily life is here to stay, with Instagram, Hipstamatic and a whole host of photo sharing clones dominating the App Store year after year. As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. But what if you’d like to say just that little bit more?

Enter Lightt, an app which captures normal day-to-day activities via a series of photographs that are then merged together to create a seamless visual timeline of your life. Sound interesting? Hit the jump to find out more! (more…)

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…)
