Note-taking iOS app Notability jumps to OS X, offers iCloud syncing
Notability, an iOS app well-regarded for its ability to handle multiple ways of taking notes -- audio recordings, handwriting, drag-and-drop and typing -- has arrived on the Mac. The OS X version ($10) matches the iPad and iPhone version feature-for-feature, but is optimized for the Mac environment. Users can drag in various file types to add to the note, scale and transform handwriting and sketches, and -- new to the program -- work with smart keyboard shortcuts. The iOS version is also available as a separate $3 purchase.
Original Bioshock game from 2007 ported to iOS
The original BioShock game, first run on consoles and desktop PCs back in 2007, has is now available on iOS. The new version ($15) requires an iPhone 5 or later, a fourth-generation iPad or later, or second-generation iPad mini (iPod touch is not supported at all), due to the complexity of the graphics. The game takes place in an underwater city called Rapture that was once a utopia, but has fallen into anarchy and is now infested with gangs of mutants pillaging the city. Players can make "meaningful decisions" about how to conduct themselves, which in turn influences the outcome of the game.
