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…)
Total War Battles, developed for the iPhone by Sega (and is an iOS universal app), puts you in control of the armies of the late 16th century Japan. You must build your resources, with buildings like lumber yards, blacksmiths and shrines, in order to deploy your armies of samurai, ronin, archers, cavalry, monks and yes, a ninja.
The Total War line of games have for a long time helped to define the real time strategy genre of video games. With all their excellent animations, tactical control and meta management of resources, I was excited to see what their first entry onto the iOS platform would be like. Head into the fray after the break. (more…)
We’re counting down the days to WWDC over here at AppStorm. A few years ago, WWDC introduced us to a new iPhone, and the current rumor is that we’re going to see the next iPhone at this year’s event. Of course, that’s all speculation, but we want to know your opinion. Let us know in the poll if you think we’ll see the next iPhone in just a few weeks or not!
Forget Grand Theft Auto, there is a new robbery game out on the block. While this game does not have all of the action that GTA has, it does not mean it is any less thrilling.
Robbery Bob puts a new twist on previous burglary games. In this review, you will learn why this comically strategic game put this criminal as the most wanted on the App Store charts.
A lot of us rely heavily on email throughout each and every day. I know I am constantly checking mine and always making sure to respond in a timely manner. One thing about email that I always wish was more customizable was my signature. I know that you can customize it, but I have always wanted an easier way to do this.
Then an iPhone app called Signatures came along a little while back and it intrigued me because it gave you the capability to create your own signature right on your iPhone. Once I saw the app, I knew I had to try it out and see if it could actually help me solve my problem of customizing my email signature. Did it? Let’s find out after the break. (more…)
The board game Catan, by Klaus Teuber, has been around almost 20 years now, and has gained worldwide popularity as an engaging strategic game of resource collecting and settlement building. USM, also the developer for the popular Keltis iOS game, brings us this implementation of Catan for the iPhone.
In it you take on the role of a settler of Catan, a newly discovered island rich with natural resources. You compete with the other settlers by building settlements, roads and cities in order to cover enough of the island with your influence to proclaim yourself the Lord of Catan. Stake your claim after the break. (more…)
