One of the Mac apps I could never live without is Alfred. It just makes everything so much quicker and easier to do — just a press of a keyboard shortcut and the action I want to carry out is just a few letters away. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen an iOS app that can streamline our actions just like Alfred.
That is, until now. App Cubby’s newest release, Launch Center Pro, is the Alfred that iOS has been missing ever since its debut. Launch Center Pro will completely revolutionize the way you use your iPhone by bringing several features into one place. Learn more about how this app can make your iPhone that much more efficient after the break. (more…)
Hunters 2 is a turn-based strategy game of sci-fi shoot outs in various locals, such as space stations, moon bases and alien worlds. Developed by Rodeo Games, it puts you in control of a squad of hunters, hiring out your skills, one contract at a time.
As the game progresses, each of your hunters gain experience to learn more skills, find loot to better equip themselves and earn the cash with which to purchase gear and new recruits. A menu of new missions is offered up each day, reflecting the mercenary’s changing way of life. Embrace your inner mercenary after the break. (more…)
Every social network provides some way to like, favorite or share content. We have favorite YouTube videos, tweets and Instapaper articles, but each carefully curated list is confined to the website of its creation. If only there was a way to pull favorites together into one central hub.
Favs attempts to pull all of your favorites, likes, shares and bookmarks from the cracks and crevices of social networking and bookmarking sites into one unified app. It wants to do more than simply aggregate favorite items, it wants to bring favorite people along for the ride as well.
I use my iPhone to browse the Internet quite a lot, actually. I’ll visit at least four or five webpages per day on average. It’s a great device to use too, because everything works smoothly and there are many websites optimized for mobile devices. But what about an enhanced experience — something that you’re used to on your desktop computer? What about Chrome for iPhone?
Luckily for those of you who use the browser, Google released an iOS version of their famous multi-platform browser on Thursday. It brings everything you loved about the Android version (if you used it) and a few of the great features included in the desktop app to your iPhone. Chrome on the iPhone has the potential to be a great browser, but let’s take a deeper look. (more…)
Since it’s still only the summer, we don’t yet have word on a new iPhone. We can guess pretty confidently that it’ll happen this summer, but until then, it’s up to the rumor sites, gossippers and wizards to theorize what they see in Apple’s future.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about expanding the screen size on these things, making it taller, but not wider. Why? It’s closer to a 16X9 format, and it makes it easier for widescreen movies. But this is all conjecture for the moment, at least until we see something in person.
But what about you? Do you think the next iPhone will sport a taller or wider display? Let us know in the comments!

There’s no doubt that you’ve used Tumblr at some point in your life, whether it was to follow a famous person, blog about drama or just to look up some funny GIFs. Throughout the years, there have been many ways to access the microblogging service on your iPhone, the most popular being the official app, formerly Tumblerette.
On June 21st, the folks at Tumblr decided that it was time to get their app a complete rebuild with a plethora of new features and a beautiful redesign. In Tumblr version 3.0, they introduced many highly-requested features such as high-resolution images, tag search, offline support, Spotify support and many more improvements and new features. Let’s take a look at some of the new features in Tumblr 3.0 after the break. (more…)
There are many apps for sharing photos across devices and screens, but most depend on Wi-Fi connections, Bluetooth or pre-installed desktop applications to function. These apps work well, but the complicated setups may be too much for someone simply looking to share an impromptu slideshow. Sites like Flickr can be used for slideshows, but users still have to upload photos and login. There are very few ways to share without some sort of installation, physical transport device, or login. Fortunately, Scalado is trying to change this.
Scalado PhotoBeamer makes it easy to share photos on a foreign computer, or any device with access to a modern web browser. There are no applications to install, files to download or images to upload. Users simply select the photo that they wish to project from their iPhone, visit the PhotoBeamer site on the target machine and scan the QR code. The image is displayed within the browser window, and the user is free to flick back and forth between images. Find out more after the jump. (more…)
I guess I’ll start off this post by saying that [adult swim] has never resorted to normalcy with their applications. I mean, with titles like Robot Unicorn Attack and Snoticles, it’s safe to say that their applications won’t be like the rest.
The same holds true with one of their lesser known applications, Monsters Ate My Condo. In this game, you will go on a quest to keep your condo conquest from falling into the monsters’ hands. Can you undertake this crazy challenge? Find out after the break. (more…)
Just over a week ago, we found out exactly what’s in iOS 6, and saw some of the cool new features to come along with it. We’ve already told you about them, but now we’re wondering if you’re excited about all of the big changes, or if it’s just a ho-hum release. What do you think? Let us know in the poll to the right.
Set in the post-apocalyptic world of Neuroshima, Neuroshima Hex is an iOS universal implementation of the successful Polish board game of the same name. Developed for iOS by Big Daddy’s Creations, it is a game of fairly simple rules that, once learned, make for quick strategic battles.
Each turn you draw from your selection of hex-shaped tiles (each one representing a unit type in your army) and place them strategically on the board. As the board fills, eventually a battle ensues and tiles are removed from the game in a process of elimination based on the capabilities of individual tiles, and how they influence one another. Confused yet? Don’t worry, it’ll all make sense after the break. (more…)
