Our weekly sponsor this week is MovieShare, the easiest way to share movies between your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.
Ever shoot a movie on your iPhone and then want to send it to your iPad? Maybe your Mac? You’d think that there was some way to do it with Photo Stream or iCloud, but there isn’t. The only way you can move your movies from one device to another is to either send it via email, iMessage or just put it up to YouTube, and none of those options are really that awesome. What if there was an easier way?
You know there is,that’s why we’re here to talk about MovieShare, right? So here’s the skinny. Take any video on your iPhone, then put it into MovieShare, which is as easy as tapping the screen a few times. Download and install MovieShare on your Mac or iPad, and you can then send your flicks to whatever machine you like, the only requirement is that you need to have all of the devices on the same Wi-Fi network. Move from your Mac to iPhone, then to the iPad, then to and iPod touch — it doesn’t matter what iOS device it is, the process is just a few taps away.
I personally tried this out on my iPad, Mac and iPhone, using a few home movies that I had taken of my son. Of course, sending them back and forth between each machine was really quick and easy to do. The entire process took just a few minutes, and now my movies are on my Mac where I want them, no muss, no fuss.
Go Get It!
Want to make transferring movies between your devices super easy? Go get MovieShare right now — it’s free, so you’ve got no excuse not to. Unless you want to make moving your movies a difficult process, and who wants that, right?
As winter approaches, I’ve begun the time-honored tradition of spending large chunks of my time sitting inside, sipping on a warm coffee- or tea-based beverage, and getting addicted to as many games as possible. These days, we tend to put most games into two main categories. First, you have your longer, in-depth games that you can really sink your time into. Second, you have a subset of games that the iTunes App Store lovingly refers to as “5 Minute Fixes,” or games that you can pick up for a few minutes at a time, perhaps in line at the store or while riding a bus.
What is often overlooked in the area of game reviews (particularly for platforms like iOS) is that quick-fix games and time-sucking games are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Today I’m going to look at Esoteric Development‘s puzzler Box 2 Box — a deceptively simplistic game whose level-based design makes it good for short, segmented bursts of play, but where the increasing level difficulty can make for maddening, time-sucking fun.

As you have probably heard or experienced, having kids definitely changes your life and how you live it. Before, I had all the time in the world to go to the movies, read the books I wanted, etc. Now, those activities are few and far between, and I definitely can no longer keep up with all the new releases that come out.
Well, a few weeks ago, I got to download an app called Recall, which I was intrigued by because I thought it might help me solve this problem. With so many good things being released in a rapid pace, I don’t know how we can even keep up with everything. But, Recall aims to help us remember when that latest movie we wanted to watch comes out, or that awesome song that we want to download. (more…)
The weekend before Christmas is upon us, friends. Since everyone is out doing some last-minute shopping and wrapping, you may find yourself with some time to kill in lineups or while waiting for your sweetheart to pass the tape dispenser.
Just in time, we’ve got our picks for this week’s top new App Store games. Grab a few and enjoy — they make good stocking stuffers too, so don’t forget you can gift them! (more…)
If there’s one thing that can be said of gamers it’s that they love to do a little world-saving every now and then. The thrill of a life-in-the-balance adventure is enough to get the heart pounding and the instincts on edge.
Verticus delivers on both sensations, pushing the player’s reaction times to their limits and almost daring them to stay calm as the hero plummets to the Earth’s core.
Can this free-falling adrenaline rush push players to the peak of excitement and performance? Find out — appropriately — after the jump. (more…)
It’s hard buying gifts for people, and wads of cash, though expedient, can seem tacky. If you want to give something meaningful without losing your mind or blowing your whole budget on just one gift, it really takes some effort. And there’s really no guarantees you won’t lose your mind.
Helping to preserve your sanity, or at least what’s left, is iWishfor. This little app lets you create wish lists for yourself and browse the lists of your friends and family, taking the guesswork out of the holidays. Can iWishfor really save you all those headaches and maybe some returned gifts? (more…)
It’s time to get some last-minute holiday shopping done. And, by the way, if you don’t think you’ve arrived at the last-minute yet, this is your wake-up call. It’s time to bite the bullet, my friend.
And now you don’t have the time or the cash to waste running from store to store, or surfing every corner of the Internet trying to find the best deal on whatever tech toy your little brother wants this year. Click “more” to take a look at these five price comparison apps that can help you find what you’re searching for while trying to remain under budget. (more…)
Despite the many technological and social advances made so far in the 21st century, there are some areas in the entertainment industry seemingly undergoing a period of stagnation. The number of rehashes and remakes of classic film and gaming brands is ever increasing with largely mixed-to-negative results. Such failures beg the question of whether original works can be bettered? If Conquist 2 is anything to go by there may be hope yet.
Military strategy games have always been amongst my favourites, whether it be the classic board game Risk or the legendary Command & Conquer series. Conquist 2 takes direct influence from the former, Risk, boldly mimicking the title’s famous premise and daring to try and better it. Can it succeed? Or is another rehash destined to fail? Stick around to find out more! (more…)
