Since its inception, the iOS App Store has birthed many an app battle. Whether it be Rovio taking on the world (and winning) or minnows like Draw Something causing a stir amongst the big guns, success is not guaranteed but competition is one thing you can count on.

Read later apps are no different, since the original iOS apps were released by Read It Later (now Pocket) and Instapaper in 2008, competition to be the de facto standard has been fierce. Cue the release of Readability in March, another competitor and another piece of the pie to fight for. Want to know which app is best? How do their features compare? Stick around to find out.

We all have that one app on our iPhone that we thought we would hate and ended up loving it. When I was asked to review Super Mega Worm, I must admit that I was a bit reluctant at first. Still, I accepted the assignment and went on my way. And I’m damn glad that I did.

Read on to find out what is so special about Super Mega Worm and why I love it so much. (more…)

When I think of sports games, I think of ones with extreme graphics and hundreds of controls. Nowadays, games like FIFA and Madden have taken the App Store by storm. Even though these are great console games, I have never found them all that great for something like the iPhone.

If there were one sports game I’d recommend for the iPhone, it would have to be Flick Champions HD. Flick Champions HD is the iOS sports game done right. Read more about it after the jump. (more…)

In the animal kingdom, away from the safe haven that is the App Store, a shark would best any bird, angry or not. However, in the business of iPhone apps the rules have changed, the winged contingent are the dominant species of app and they rule the App Store charts with an iron claw.

The various incarnations of Angry Birds are the de facto standard for physics puzzlers but there is a new kid on the block snapping at their heels. Does Shark Dash sink or swim? Read on to find out. (more…)

Yeah, yeah, yeah. There’s a new iPad and we hear it’s awesome. Even though this isn’t our sister site, iPad.AppStorm, we know that most of you either have an iPad or are considering the purchase sometime soon. That’s what the iOS system is all about, right?

So did you pull the trigger and get yourself a new iPad? Let us know in the poll to the right.

 

Depending on which side of the fence you sit, you’ll get a ton of different opinions on whether the recently announced OS X update Mountain Lion is turning into iOS, or if it’s just a matter of unifying the two platforms so the concepts function the same way. I’ve already posted my thoughts on the matter, but now I’d like to know what you’re thinking.

Let us know in the poll to the right if you think iOS and OS X are slowly becoming merged into one, or if you’ve got a different opinion.

Sometimes, these opinion pieces are a real bear to write. Take today, for example. Knowing full well that my schedule is going to hell in a handbasket soon, I’ve put off writing this article for lack of a decent topic. And here I am, sitting in front of a keyboard, when Apple hits me with news that not only gives me a topic, but pushes the iOS-ification of OS X one step further.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of OS X Mountain Lion by now, but in case you are a boulder-living person, here’s a tip: OS X is getting closer and closer to iOS every day — but don’t expect them to merge anytime soon. Here’s why.  (more…)

When you think of website search engines, it’s big-name brands like Google or Yahoo! which come to mind — even Microsoft’s Bing is doing very well in the rankings. However, there is an underdog in the mix and it’s not Dogpile.

DuckDuckGo Search is a very simple engine which borrows a lot of traits from Google’s UI. Their search functionality is easy to use and also includes extra features for custom searches — in this way you can limit to specific domain names or even search in alternate places such as Wikipedia. Their web app is certainly fantastic, but the company has done an even better job for their iOS app, which we’ll delve into after the break.
