Developers rejoice: Apple disables written app reviews on iOS 9 beta

If there is one thing that developers hate, it’s seeing 1-star app reviews on an iOS beta. Typically, an iOS major release has plenty of bugs and glitches that affect old apps.

Gon is a simple, delightfully designed, physics based game with a decent amount of character to help separate it from the plethora of iOS games on the App Store.  Gons are a species of cute, round, furry characters from another time and space. The Gons’ time travelling device malfunctioned and they ended up somewhere at the beginning of all time….

God of Light App Review: A dark and serene puzzle game

The gameplay of God of Light, the new physics-based puzzler from Playmous, is hardly original. The concept of reflecting and refracting light from its source to its intended target is a staple of the puzzle genre.
