Hands On: Circulets 2.1.5 (iOS)

05/18, 10:20am

Local multiplayer games are somewhat of a rarity on the iPad, and we think that's a shame. There's something about sitting down and playing a competitive game with a friend that we enjoy, and the iPad seems to beg for this experience. One such game that takes advantage of the size and accessibility of the iPad is Circulets, a seriously competitive local mutiplayer game.

Hands On: Foldify 1.7 (iPad)

05/18, 7:30am

Readers might remember our Hands On for Storest, an app that gives kids physical paper props with which to play store. Today, we take a look at Foldify -- Create, Print, Fold! by the same developer, Pixle. Much like Storest, Foldify is an app that kids -- or immature adults like us -- can play with and then take part of that app into the physical world by printing it out in paper.

Review: Leitz Icon label printer

05/18, 4:10am

When you say the words "label printer" to people, they either just really don't care or they get incredibly excited. This is one of those "the new phone book is here!!" moments we discussed back in our Hands On for the iOS app Deliveries. Today, we're looking at the Icon label printer by Leitz. It's a bit smaller than a breadbox, and can be used without wires for power or data; most of the printing we did was though apps on iOS and Android devices. Check out what we thought of it here.

It's hard to have a conversation about the Internet without also having a conversation about privacy, or the lack thereof. As a response, BitTorrent Bleep is a new messenger service brought about by a desire for a little more privacy than the average text or IM program. We sat down with Bleep to see just how well this newcomer holds up to its promises.

Hands On: Mobee Magic USB 3.0 Hub (iMac)

05/17, 9:08am

If there is a first rule to reviewing then surely it is to be useful. This is what something is, this is what it says it does, this is whether it does it and why you would or wouldn't benefit from spending whatever it costs on whatever it is. With that in mind, then, Mobee's Magic Hub is a device that attaches to the stand on your iMac and lets you plug in more USB devices. It'll set you back $50 and it's worth it. Off you pop.

Update: Zombies Run 4.0 (iOS, Android)

05/16, 10:59am

As we've said before about Zombies, Run!, it's ingenious. We quite like this app. The story is compelling, and has made us behave strangely in public on more than one occasion. Developer Six to Start is definitely a groundbreaker in the "crying while running" genre of fitness apps -- we're looking at you, episode A Voice in the Dark ... looking at you with red, puffy, tearful eyes. Previously, the app cost $5 from iTunes and Google Play, with in-app purchases for subsequent "seasons" of the audio-drama missions, but all that has changed. With the update to 4.0, Zombies, Run! is now free to play up to season four.
