The holidays are upon us and ’tis the season for giving! And giving we most definitely are!
We have a stunning array of award-winning games up for grabs! Head over to Windows.AppStorm and get a chance at winning one of three award-winning games — Black Ops 2, Assassin’s Creed 3, or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Winners will be chosen randomly and will receive a digital copy of the game through the Steam service.
The holiday season is stressful for all involved, in more ways that one. There’s shopping, family get-togethers and all that cooking. No one understands this more than the family chef, the person responsible for pulling off a beautiful meal that everyone, with all their peculiarities of preference, will love. And it’s best, of course, if the whole undertaking appears effortless.
Recipe/social cookbook app Foodily can’t finish up your holiday shopping or get that one string of lights to stop blinking already, but it can lend a hand when it comes to putting together a piping hot feast. A powerful search, recipes with user comments and pictures, and lots of advice from celebrity chefs are all on the table with Foodily. (more…)
The iPhone has been Microsoft Exchange friendly for a long time now, and it’s definitely made inroads into the business community. While some still rock the BlackBerry with a belt holster, businessmen and women around the world have adopted the iPhone as their main form of communication.
But the iPhone isn’t just for talking and handling email, it also does all sorts of other business tasks. Do you use your iPhone for business or is it just for pleasure? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Tweetbot may have been the best Twitter client in its day, but new times are ahead. Twitter’s own official app may be more popular than the smaller third-party alternatives, yet developers keep releasing new ones every few months. This time the app is the fifth version of a classic client originally on the Mac called Twitterrific.
In version 5.0, the developer redesigned everything and equipped the app with a completely new set of navigation features. It’s much simpler and more intuitive than before, too. To evaluate its potential as a competitor to the great Tweetbot, I downloaded Twitterrific on its release day and have been using it frequently since. Keep reading for a full look at the app. (more…)
Fromage, the French word for cheese, is an encyclopedic reference of cheeses from all over the world. Have you ever been befuddled by a restaurant cheese menu or stared blankly at the massive selection of foreign diary products in a cheese shop? The Fromage app may be a valuable resource. Use it to find substitutions when you’re stuck in a grocery store that doesn’t carry an obscure cheese on your list. Tap into the organizational features to keep track of cheeses in the Try, Buy or Favorites lists.
No need to wait for an Internet connection, simply search by cheese name or scroll through alphabetized categories: Region, Milk Type or Texture. Fast facts, photographs and historical descriptions of each cheese give you the information to make quick decisions in retail and restaurant situations. But don’t just take our word for it, find out for yourself after the break. (more…)
I have been on a never-ending quest for the perfect to-do list app. I experimented with Apple’s Reminders for a little while before extensively using Wunderlist and then Cultured Code’s Things for iPhone. I ended up migrating back to Reminders simply because Things and Wunderlist didn’t make me want to use their apps; I never felt charmed by Wunderlist’s visual aesthetics or by Thing’s OCD-level of task management.
To me, a great to-do app needs to encourage and foster use. It needs to make you want to go in and take the time to write down something that needs to get done. The challenge is to make sure that there is a visual system of rewards for using the app, and that visual appeal and reckless reinvention of the digital to-do list is exactly DOOO‘s success. (more…)
There are some times in life when making a phone call just takes too long. As pitiful as that might sound, once you tally up time spent dialing, waiting through ringing, saying hello, small talk, saying good-bye and voicemail introductions, you may be doubling, tripling or quadrupling the time it would take to simply relay what you need to say. While this might be solved with a text message, that can take just as long and isn’t the best method for complex messages.
You might think you’re trapped doing one or the other. Not so with Voxer, the push-to-talk app that transforms your phone into a walkie-talkie, and streamlines your text and picture communications. Is Voxer ready to take us to the next level of quick conversation? Find out after the jump.
The holidays are sneaking up, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck in a lineup with nothing to do … so why not bring your iPhone along and get some gaming done?

There are plenty of reasons why you might want to take a screen capture of a website. While saving them as a JPEG or in a Word document is easy, nothing classes up the presentation quite like transforming an image into a PDF.
URL2PDF is the app that does that tricky task for you. Just copy and paste links and convert them into PDF files that can be shared via email or opened in programs such as Dropbox, iBooks and Google Drive.
Can URL2PDF be your new method for immortalizing Web content? Find out after the jump. (more…)
