Flappy Bird may have gone the way of the dodo but that hasn’t stopped an endless flood of knockoff games for mobile devices. The amount of Flappy Bird clones is staggering, some of them are completely absurd such as Tappy Bieber and Flappy Turd. There’s even a Flappy Bird MMO that displays several players at once attempting to navigate the endless obstacle course of pipes. Among all the Flappy Bird clones, I believe I’ve found the best among them.
Splashy Fin is a Flappy Bird clone available on iOS devices. The gameplay is identical to Flappy Bird which itself is similar to Helicopter Game, which is over 10 years old. The player controls a tiny fish(not a bird) who helplessly flails in the water [Read More…]
It’s the New Year, and we all know what that means! Yes, ladies and gents, it’s about time you dragged out your old box of resolutions, slapped together some willpower, and hopped on that treadmill. It’s more than time to start burning that excess fat, trimming down the pounds, and getting that Ryan Gosling or Mila Kunis bod you’ve always wanted. Or, you know, whatever look you’re after.
We all have to do it eventually, and it’s just as difficult for us as it is for you—we promise. Thankfully, though, the miracle of modern technology means we can more easily stay on top of how we get fit, as well as what we eat and do to get there. Don’t believe us? Then we dare you to pull out that trusty iPhone and load up RunGap by CTRL-N, and keep your complete training history from some popular services including Garmin, Endomondo, RunKeeper, Strava, Runtastic and Nike+ and tons more [Read More…]
I’ll be the first to admit that I was rather prejudiced against casino apps. There seemed to be so many and the first few which I downloaded where nothing less than disappointing. It is clear that not all casino apps are created equal and that some developers lack creativity and are not in tune with their target market. Why certain apps are still available for download is beyond me.
They often say that one tends to stumble upon a gem rather than actively find it, and this is more or less what happened when I came across Jackpotjoy by Gamesys. After trying out a dozen or so apps, I eventually found that this particular one ticked far more boxes than the rest. Available for free download from iTunes, this app actually allows you to play for real cash and should you be lucky enough to win, withdrawals are available after 24 hours. Now one might be forgiven for thinking that your chances of striking it lucky are pretty slim, but at least with this app JackpotJoy Casino promises 10 winners every second – which are pretty good odds if you ask me [Read More…]
If there’s one thing to be said about dating apps, it’s that they all have one goal in common; make it as easy as possible for users to meet new people in their area. Basic apps feature detailed personal profiles, photos, easy ways to chat and connect, and usually some sort of handy search tool to find just the guy or gal you might be interested in. What does this mean for developers? An app has to be pretty original in order to separate itself from the rest of the pack [Read More…]
Back in my elementary school days I was almost certain that teachers were of a different species…one thats main purpose was to ruin children’s weekends by assigning projects due on Monday. To ponder: what exactly did they do in the faculty lounge? Now, I find myself surrounded by teachers, my sister, parents in-law, and a swarm of relatives and friends. Although gaming is not their thing they’re obsessed with a couple of iOS games, mainly Scrabble. As you can imagine I’ve gotten sucked into countless Scrabble sessions and eventually the novelty of playing an old concept game has worn thin. Ah, but over the last few days I got to fool around with a new word game with a twist in my favor, Word Cubes [Read More…]
Ah, college! The days when we could run amuck on campus, wreaking havoc in between bouts of intense studying and partying. Then again, maybe we don’t miss all the anxiety of the tests, or the strenuous lifestyle. Then again—again—we didn’t have an iPhone or Study Habits by developer Reginald Laigo to help get us through. This free application is a fantastically simple, if not exactly beautiful way, to manage all the various aspects of your college life together, from tests to socializing, studying to course evaluations. The interface could use a serious overhaul, but if you’re looking for a vital way to manage your stress level and performance in school, there’s no better option on the iPhone [Read More…]
