Flappy Bird App Review: Infuriatingly Addictive

I was perusing the App Store, as one often does, when I noticed a new title sitting at the top of the free app chart. I decided to download it and take it for a spin as, if it is the most popular free app at the moment, it must at least be worth a look.  From that point forward, that title - Flappy Bird - irritated the hell out of me and I couldn’t…

Evomail+ for iPhone – Overview [VID]

A short while ago, Evomail dropped its latest version of the email client on to the App Store as a brand new app. Evomail+ utilizes the new Evocloud to deliver push notifications for Gmail, iCloud, Yahoo and other IMAP accounts.

Best alternative messaging apps: BBM, LINE, Kik, Viber and more

Unfortunately, the messaging ecosystem is a mess across all of today’s smartphones.

Dream: Hidden Adventure App Review (Sponsored)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EejDestT43Q Hidden object games are numerous on all gaming platforms and iOS is certainly no exception to that rule. The genre has been tried and tested for many years and any mobile gamer is likely to have tried out a few in their time. Standing out and offering a unique experience, therefore, is difficult in a crowded and…

Lightomania App Review (Sponsored)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4-J5lLIGzI iOS is a competitive market for casual games. Physics-based puzzle games, in particular, are dime a dozen so standing out from the crowd and offering a unique experience is certainly difficult for developers.
