Who didn't dream about growing up to become a superhero when they were a kid? We're willing to bet you did, and the same is true of one feline named Chemist White, who just so happens to be the protagonist of a fun, retro-inspired platformer called Super Phantom Cat.
The default weather app on the iPhone is useful, but a bit bland, and the default weather app on the iPad is... well, it doesn't exist. Sure, you could snag some big-name weather app, or one that includes interactive maps and real time weather updates, or you could get an app that is simple, stylish, and cool. If you're interested in the cooler option, allow us to tell you about Wild Weather.
Twitter is awesome, and so is the official Twitter app. We've had no real complaints about it in the years that we've used it, though that doesn't mean we're not open to alternatives. Today, we check out Tweetings for Twitter, an app that attempts to add some upgrades to your Twitter experience.
If you're sitting in exactly the right spot in the departure lounge, you can see all the flight information you need right there on the monitors. For anywhere else, from being at a bad angle to being at home planning your trip, App in the Air 5.1.10 shows you what you need.
We may be the only people who like email as a concept, and are fine with Apple Mail as an app. That's nice for us, but even we agree there are things we wish Apple would add, and there are now several alternative apps that provide the features we'd like, and many are struggling without. Spark 1.5.0 for iPhone is one, and like the recently-released and recently-reviewed Airmail, it chiefly focuses on making dealing with new emails very, very fast.
Previously, we've enthused about the Logitech K380, mostly enthused about the Create, and generally enthused with some caveats about the K400r -- and what do you mean, you're getting these names mixed up? Logitech took some steps toward making things clearer with this, the Logitech K400 Plus keyboard. That doesn't sound like a giant leap forward for keyboard naming, but in all other ways the firm markets this as being for use with your "smart" HDTV -- sort of.
Conversions are always tricky things to work with. Sure, there are workarounds, little tricks to estimate how many centimeters in a foot, or how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit or vice versa, but these aren't precise, and thus aren't perfect for every situation. That's where Convertizo 3 comes in, a sleek, easy to use app that's got your back when it comes to converting just about anything.
It's a funny world where we believe we live a fast-paced, instant online life -- yet we're willing to wait days for packages to be delivered, and we used to just drive straight to the store. Maybe we're just addicted to the thrill of having to guess when our parcels will arrive, but if so, Deliveries 2.0 for OS X and Deliveries 7.0 for iOS remove that.
Airmail has been a popular email app on OS X that arguably suffered from not also being on iOS. That absence won't have bothered everybody, but now it doesn't have to trouble anyone as Airmail 1.0 is out for iPhone.
You know the drill by this point: the one where we start out talking about what makes a game a game. We're not going to bore you by discussing magic circles, objectives, or any sort of theory about what a game has to contain to be considered a game. No, today we're just here to tell you about a gorgeous, exploratory game called Adventures of Poco Eco -- Lost Sounds.
