    APP OF THE DAY - Figure review (iPhone)

    By 11 April 2012

    The smartphone doesn't have to be a serious thing in order for it to be useful. It can be just as handy passing the time helping you mess about as it can checking emails. We like to make sure we get a decent balance between the two.  Apps like Figure...

    APP OF THE DAY: Football Manager Handheld 2012 review (iPad / iPhone / iPod touch / Android)

    By 10 April 2012

    There are a few things that you simply can't rely on in life: bus timetables, the freshness of mince when it's been in your fridge for a couple of days, regardless of it's use-by date, British sitcoms that last more than three series, or Jeremy Clarkson....

    APP OF THE DAY: SMS Backup+ review (Android)

    By 9 April 2012

    Remember the bad old days of copying contacts from your phone memory to your SIM card and back again when you got a new phone? Then came syncing with your computer and now, blissfully, we've moved almost all of this to the cloud. The problem of backing-up...

    APP OF THE DAY: Plex review (Android)

    By 6 April 2012

    One of the biggest frustrations with media streaming around the home, is how difficult it still is. You can buy boxes to do it, or use DLNA-compliant software on your phone, tablet or laptop. But it's never easy. Plex, which ties a desktop client to a...

    APP OF THE DAY: Khan Academy review (iPad)

    By 5 April 2012

    You can play finger-flicking games on an iPad, you can watch movies and listen to music. In fact, you can consume until your pleasure-struck brain spongifies into blissful submission. Or you can learn something instead. Khan Academy Platform iPad Price...

    APP OF THE DAY - Paper by FiftyThree review (iPad)

    By 4 April 2012

    Sometimes the simplest apps do best. At its core the iPad nails most of the fundamental tablet necessities with decent native apps. A decent photos application, notes and things like iBooks and the Music app all have the main tablet bases covered.  But...

    APP OF THE DAY: WD 2go Pro review (iPad / iPhone)

    By 30 March 2012

    With people even more obsessed with clouds today than William Wordsworth was back in the 1800s, it makes sense that network attached storage (NAS) box manufacturers are keen to jump on the bandwagon. However, it's all well and good calling something a...

    APP OF THE DAY: Bus London review (iPhone/iPad)

    By 28 March 2012

    London is complicated enough before you even consider taking on its public transport system. An absurd number of bus routes and underground and overground trains transport people across town, usually in a rather sluggish manner, every single day. The...

    Anyone who has ever dealt with an estate agent will be able to tell you that you're better off avoiding them as much as possible. It's not that they're bad people, it's just that they will do and say pretty much anything to get you to part with your money....

    By 21 March 2012

    Sometimes a text message just isn't enough. There are even moments when a picture just won't do. This is usually fixed by a quick Skype call or some FaceTime with a friend. But what if you can't get through to them? There are a few options, a message...

    By 19 March 2012

    The best camera is the one that's with you, or so the adage goes. When it comes to smartphones, it's perhaps not the real image quality, but what you do with it. In the app space, apps like Hipstamatic and Instagram now have royalty status, bringing...

    APP OF THE DAY: Call of Carlos review (Windows Phone)

    By 16 March 2012

    Maker Games Academy may have avoided the temptation to use a Chilean protagonist in this game which involves escaping from a mine but, in selecting Carlos ("an apathetic and chubby Mexican miner"), it may well have done. Politically correct? Probably...

    The iPad and iPhone make quite a logical mixing platform for DJs, for two very simple reasons. First, they are extremely powerful yet very portable and second, because they can carry most of your music around with you. The only real problems they have...

    APP OF THE DAY: Airport City (Android)

    By 13 March 2012

    Let's be quite clear, Airport City is the stupidest ,most annoying game we've ever played on Android. We love it, and quite simply can't put it down. Despite the fact that it's stupid and annoying. It is, therefore, in this regard, perfect. Airport City...

    APP OF THE DAY: Official eBay Android App review (Android)

    By 12 March 2012

    When it comes to shopping online, eBay occupies an odd position. It's a community as much as a shopping mall, a place you can buy just about anything, be that from a real shop or someone's garage.  But the internet would certainly be a duller place without...

    We love the old 1980s TV quiz shows here at Pocket-lint. You can't beat a bit of Bully, there's nothing better than a Blankety Blank, and who wouldn't love their own Dusty Bin? But the best of them all featured the exploits of Mr Chips, an animated robot...
