Among the (many) announcements at Apple’s October 2013 event was the updating of iWork for iOS, now free for any existing users and those who purchase a new iOS device. One of the last bastilles of leather and wood effects, iWork was completely revamped and brought in line with iOS 7.

For PowerPoint refugees and anyone wanting to easily create slick presentations that are gorgeous to watch, as well as build, Keynote is a great example of how Apple can really push the boundaries of what is possible with iOS.


London has one of the most extensive public transport systems in the world. It’s also one of the most archaic and the myriad of different connecting stations for its Underground service and variety transportation methods, from bus to boat, can perplex even the most experienced commuter.

Having been a daily user of many of the London transport apps available for a number of years, I find myself asking the question “does the App Store need yet another public transport app?” Cityplanner (available for both London and New York public transport services) seems to think so and, after using it for some time, the answer seems to be yes.


I haven’t been on Twitter as long as some people. In fact, I joined Twitter only when Apple integrated it into iOS 5. A little reluctantly (and with more than a hint of trepidation), I signed up. Since then, Twitter has been an on-again/off-again relationship. When it’s good, it’s great, and when it’s bad, Twitter gets neglected. But I do really like Twitter and I love the apps that come along with it.

I’ve been trying to find the best way to read through my old tweets and conversations with friends and colleagues for a while now. Maybe I’d find a joke I made that I thought was hilarious (or not funny at all, on the other hand). Maybe I could find that brief conversation about iTunes I had with Rian Johnson, the writer/director of Looper. Mostly, I wanted a great way to be nostalgic. I tried a few different apps, but finally found what I wanted in Tweet Library.


With the numerous and varied food-finding apps on the market, the average restaurant goer has an arsenal of handy decision-helping technology at his fingertips. You can search for what is closest, what cuisine you love and even what local chefs recommend. But what about searching for ambiance, in other words, a particular vibe. Say you are looking for a place to go on a romantic date, and you are looking for a restaurant that is reasonably priced, cozy, romantic and maybe a little Don Draper-esque? Or maybe your companion is of the printed kind (come on, you know you’ve shunned human dinner dates so that you could read about that juicy love triangle that was just starting to develop in the book you said you would never read, but somehow made its way into your hands by way of impractical night of vino and No? Just me?) Well, friends, Hoppit can help you out.

Gameloft, the bringers of the previously reviewed Asphalt 7: Heat, have done it again! With their creative minds, they’ve created a game which incorporates the making of a true hollywood film.

Many people have experienced, or at-least heard of, those little pocket sized skateboards known often as techdecks. Well now those that have enjoyed techdecks, and even those who haven’t, can hop on the board in this top-down view skateboarding game.

Touchgrind is a fun, innovative app which lets you pull off endless amounts of tricks in dozens of different ways. With its implementation of true physics, some may even say it seems quite  realistic. What it comes down to it however, is does it really have the potential to be a real show stopper and is it worth the fiver you’ll have to throw Apple’s way? (more…)

IOS 6 removed YouTube from the operating system’s default apps. At first, people thought this would be a major problem. After all, Google isn’t the most reliable iOS developer out there. Fortunately for iPhone users, the developers created a nice alternative to the original YouTube app and released it just over a week before iOS 6 was released. But it’s limited and has ads, so what about something a bit less restricting?

Several individual developers have brought YouTube clients to the iPhone with most of them being poorly developed or only halfway there. However, there is a nice-looking alternative from developer Jason Morrissey, creator of Alien Blue, a Reddit client for the iPhone and iPad. He’s named it Jasmine, and it’s free, but exactly how good is it? (more…)

Ever since Foursquare saw a massive growth in popularity, it’s become clear that mobile social networking is on the rise. Facebook also recently purchased another big-time check-in service, Gowalla, back in December 2011. But users are look for more than geographic check-ins.

ImGame is a revolutionary idea which attracts gamers of all crowds! The app behaves as a check-in social network where you can share what game(s) you’re playing. Check-ins are performed in real time and you can even accept push notifications for when your friends are online too. Find out more after the jump.
