    App of the day: Fill More! review (iPhone)

    By 6 August 2013

    If you've played the classic game Filler then Fill More! will be familiar territory. This modern-day mobile device adaptation is based loosely around a command and conquer theme that feels like playing a digital board game. Fill More! is a strategic turn-based...

    App of the day: BT Sport review (Android)

    By 5 August 2013

    Sport is very much the modern battlefield, both on the field of play and when it comes to selling you entertainment, with exclusive rights, packages and everything else, on offer. The newest kid on the block, looking to shake things up and rival the likes...

    App of the day: Compulsive review (iPhone)

    By 30 July 2013

    Sometimes simple is best and Compulsive - the colour-matching puzzle game that's against the clock - is as stripped-back as they come. Few ingredients make for the perfect taste though and even the game's title rings true in a self-declaration of truth:...

    The internet now offers an abundance of choices when it comes to making travel plans. There are websites for just about every everything, from online agents, to individual travel companies, to all the services you might want on your travels and more....

    App of the day: Sewer Wars review (iPhone)

    By 23 July 2013

    Sewer Wars - and we're talking about the underground pipes, not needle and thread - is a side-scrolling platform game that's all about fast reactions and staying afloat for as long as you can. Despite the game sounding suggestive of those kinds of things...

    App of the day: Flight Finder review (iPhone)

    By 19 July 2013

    Until someone invents teleportation, or Elon Musk works out how to build those fancy pneumatic tubes he's decided will be the future of global travel, we're stuck using planes. Although it's not really aircraft that are the problem, it's airports. These...

    App of the day: Blinkbox review (Android)

    By 17 July 2013

    When it comes to watching TV or movies on your tablet, you're not short of choices these days. There are the big players, like Netflix, offering a subscription-based system. Then you've got Lovefilm (on some platforms), as well as a range of catch-up...

    App of the day: City Cat review (iPhone)

    By 15 July 2013

    The never-ending dash through New York, Paris and Moscow that is City Cat feels like an explosion of Sonic the Hedgehog meets Nyan Cat in a parallel Jetpack Joyride world. Colourful, engaging and tricky to stay in play during the later stages, City Cat...

    App of the day: Tiny Thief review (Android)

    By 12 July 2013

    If you were one of those Daily Mail sorts, you'd have a fit about the current "morality" of both gaming and TV. On TV, for example, you've got serial killers as heroes, motorcycle outlaws as role models and drug dealers as father figures. Now, in its...

    App of the day: Mushroom Wars Mini review (iPhone)

    By 9 July 2013

    Furious fungi battle it out in Mushroom Wars Mini on a miniature scale that's mighty difficult to master. If strategy games are your thing then Mushroom Wars on the iPhone - or the iPad if you want it a little less mini - is a well thought out attack...

    App of the day: Skype 4.0 review (Android)

    By 8 July 2013

    Some services are so heavily weaved into your work or social life that it's difficult to see a way around them. They become part of a binding system, the fabric that keeps your network together, be that friends or colleagues, for work or play. Skype is...

    App of the day: Pet Rescue Saga review (iPhone)

    By 2 July 2013

    Pet Rescue Saga, the latest tile from King - makers of app heavyweight Candy Crush Saga - has landed to eat into your every minute. It's a good-looking and well-made puzzle game that's taxing and rewarding in equal measure. Pet Rescue Saga Format iOS...

    App of the day: Feedly review (Android)

    By 1 July 2013

    Google Reader is dead. If Google Reader is a mystery to you, then so too will be today's app, so feel free to read another app review. If, however, the passing of Reader has left a void in your life, then Feedly might be the app (or service) to replace...

    App of the day: Truecaller review (Android)

    By 28 June 2013

    Have you seen that show on BBC Three called The Call Centre? In it, you learn about the goings on and practices behind those calls to help you get more insulation or to help you reclaim thousands in PPI. It's a great show, and well worth watching, because...
