WWDC is a big event in the Apple universe, designed to bring in the best and brightest developers in the community. It’s not a public event, but what if it was? What if anyone could go to WWDC — would you?
Let’s find out. Answer in the poll on the right and let us know!
Adventure games have always been my cup of tea because I like following the story of a hero, and these sorts of games can really do a good job of creating a character you love. It’s true though, that adventure games can be thin on the ground on the iPhone, so it’s always a joy to find a fun game with an involving story and a protagonist with whom you can really identify.
NCSoft’s recent title My Little Hero brings back all of the nostalgia of playing adventure games on early Nintendo consoles while injecting a fresh artistic sensibility to the genre. Swashbuckling sword fights and feats of daring do to save your comrades from evil are the order of the day in My Little Hero. (more…)
The release of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for the iOS platform wasn’t a coincidence. Its availability strategically coincided with the premiere of Marvel’s The Avengers and Capcom no doubt benefited from this connection. Just as the blockbuster is a chapter in a series, so, too, is MvC2, the sixth game within a set that includes highlights such as X-Men vs. Street Fighter and the first Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes.
More than a decade after its initial release, MvC2 still boasts tons of praise, but how does one of the more technically complex entries in the series make the transition to iPhone? And after years of availability on consoles and a newer version on the market (Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds), why should anyone care? (more…)
The way in which we listen to music in vehicles has changed quite a bit over the past 60 years. For the longest time, radio was the only way of to jam to your favorite tunes, but the invention of the 8-track, cassette and compact disc revolutionized people’s ability to listen to music they wanted to on-demand. Nowadays, the majority of new cars feature an auxiliary port (or USB port) that allows you to connect your iPhone (or other music playing device) so that you can listen to any of the hundreds or thousands of songs you have saved.
However, one of the big dangers of using your iPhone to play music while driving is the distraction it causes by making you focus on your device instead of on the road. To help make it a bit safer to drive and control your tunes at the same time, developer Ryan Oksenhorn created CarTunes, a gesture based music player for your iPhone. Find out more after the jump.
AppStorm does not condone any activity that distracts a driver from the responsibilities of operating a motor vehicle. While CarTunes does aim to make it safer to control your iPhone while driving, it’s important that you always follow state laws when using your cell phone while driving.
With a fond farewell to the month of May, we welcome you to June and its summery goodness. If you happen to have some time indoors to kill, then you’re going to love this week’s set of fresh App Store games. Come see what’s on offer… (more…)
Do you ever plan an event and take the time to send out the invitations to people, only to find out that most of them can’t make it on that day? I know that has happened to me a few times and it sucks when that occurs because now you are stuck with either changing the event date or just cancelling it all together. Before you know it, it is taking more time to actually plan and coordinate the event than the time alloted for it.
If you have ever been in this predicament before, you know exactly what I am talking about and I think I came across a cool solution to help you out. Invy, which is an iPhone app that aims to make the process of planning an event simple and easy, just came out and I took it for a spin to see if it really could help me. (more…)
Zombies — the undead that are seemingly huge in today’s culture — taking all of media by storm. Whether it be in TV shows, movies or video games, zombies are often the target for humans. As a result, they are often slaughtered in masses.

I’m not a board game guy; never have been, don’t really see it happening in the future. But I am a geek, so the other day I was watching The Tabletop on Geek & Sundry, specifically the episode where Colin Ferguson and Anne Wheaton play Ticket to Ride. There was no way I was going to sit there for close to 30 minutes to watch people play a board game, right?
Yup, there was, and when I finished I thought, “I wonder if Ticket to Ride is available on the iPad or iPhone?” Sure enough, it is, and it’s called Ticket To Ride Pocket, and it’s a blast to play. Hop onboard after the jump. (more…)
