    APP OF THE DAY: Pixlr Express review (Android and iPhone)

    By 28 December 2012

    Photo manipulation is all the rage, if the Instagram uproar is to be believed. People love tweaking their mobile phone pictures to give them a bit of life, and we can see why. Every image ever taken with a cameraphone looks roughly the same. They don't...

    APP OF THE DAY: Evernote Food review (iOS & Android)

    By 27 December 2012

    Evernote has turned its rather obsessive hand to the world of food. The result is a fantastic way to log everything you eat and cook. So how does Evernote Food work? Building on the clever system already established by Evernote's standard app, it allows...

    APP OF THE DAY: Bunny Cannon review (iPhone)

    By 25 December 2012

    When we heard that Not Doppler, the makers of zombie smash-a-thon Earn To Die, was releasing its latest iPhone title, Bunny Cannon, we anticipated more fast-paced blood, guts 'n' gore. But no. Bunny Cannon merges cute and cuddly kid-friendly graphics...

    APP OF THE DAY: Football Manager Handheld 2013 review (iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android)

    By 24 December 2012

    There were plenty of excellent games released in 2012, but few have held our attention for quite as long as the latest entry to the Football Manager franchise on the PC. More in-depth than it's ever been and with an improved 3D graphics engine to boot,...

    APP OF THE DAY: Photostream review (Windows Phone 8)

    By 21 December 2012

    Windows Phone 8 has a clever tweak in that it updates its lock screen using different images from Bing every day. It keeps your phone feeling fresh every time you take it out of your pocket. The idea behind Photostream is to take things one further and...

    APP OF THE DAY: The Snowman and the Snowdog review (Android/iPhone/iPad)

    By 20 December 2012

    If you've been socially aware for any of the Christmases of the past 30 years, you may well have encountered Raymond Briggs's televisual treat The Snowman. Accompanied by the dulcet tones of a young Aled Jones, The Snowman, for a lot of us, is a Christmas...

    APP OF THE DAY: Flickr review (Android and iPhone)

    By 19 December 2012

    So, Instagram is dead, basically. Facebook may have backed-down on its stance that it can pretty much do what the hell it wants with your photos, but we all know that the company is, at a cellular level, incapable of respecting your privacy. So, the hunt...

    APP OF THE DAY: Middle Manager of Justice review (iPhone)

    By 18 December 2012

    Middle Management: an existence sandwiched somewhere between power and pointlessness. Seems like a strange theme to work up into a game, but give it the DoubleFine treatment - Tim Schafer's studio, the head honcho behind turn-based classic Monkey Island...

    APP OF THE DAY: Google Play Music review (Android)

    By 14 December 2012

    This might sound stupid if you already have, and use, Google Play Music, but for many people with devices that don’t have it, that’s a shame, because it’s really very good indeed. There are a good number of music playback apps on the Play Store,...

    APP OF THE DAY: Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition review (iPad)

    By 11 December 2012

    There's a danger in taking well-loved games and properties, updating them and putting them on platforms they weren't originally intended for. The iTunes App Store is strewn with retro titles or homages that fail to capture the excitement of the originals...

    APP OF THE DAY: Mr. Eyes review (Android)

    By 10 December 2012

    The app space has given itself over to the whacky, weird, but often very funny games. There's plenty of opportunity for developers to come up with the downright absurd and still be entertaining. That’s the box we'd put today's app into. It's bizarre,...

    APP OF THE DAY: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City review (iPhone, iPad, Android)

    By 7 December 2012

    It seems like only yesterday that we were tearing down the waterfront in GTA: Vice City, attempting to do the longest wheelie known to man on a scooter. The thing is, it wasn't yesterday, that was 10 years ago. To celebrate, Rockstar has released Grand...

    APP OF THE DAY: Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour review (iPad, iPhone, and Android)

    By 6 December 2012

    Modern Combat apps have traditionally pushed the envelope when it comes to what a tablet can do graphically. The new iPad 4 is a real powerhouse of a device and we would bet money that this is one of the best-looking games on the tablet. Graphics aren't...

    APP OF THE DAY: KnightScape review (iPad and iPhone)

    By 5 December 2012

    Talk about pedigree, KnightScape is the app equivalent of a Grand National winner. The app has been put together by a new games studio co-founded by Laurent Ancessi of EA and Naughty Dog fame. Ancessi worked on the likes of Uncharted and Need for Speed...

    APP OF THE DAY: Jet Set Radio review (iPhone and iPad)

    By 3 December 2012

    The Dreamcast might have been a flop for Sega but it wasn't without its classics. Jet Set Radio was most definitely one of them. Falling into the more bizarre category of video games, it was about gangs of rollerblading graffiti artists who sped about...

    App of the day: Wreck-it Ralph review (Android, iPhone)

    By 30 November 2012

    If you're not excited about the upcoming movie Wreck-it Ralph, then you obviously didn't waste your youth playing video games in arcades, or hunched in front of a CRT TV trying to make a yellow Pac-man eat some pills and annoy some ghosts. The game, from...

    Utter the words stop motion animation and the likes of Morph and Wallace and Gromit should instantly spring to mind. The process has been gracing our television sets for years, but what about our mobile phones?  Zynga's new app ClayJam looks unlike any...

    APP OF THE DAY: VidTrim Pro review (Android)

    By 26 November 2012

    Video editing was once something of a luxury on mobile devices, but there was less of a need for it because capture was low quality and you never really wanted to do much with it. Standards have changed. Not only will your smartphone offer you the quality...

    By 23 November 2012

    Why, you might ask, would anyone pay for turn-by-turn directions on Android when Google Maps is so good. That's a pretty fair question, we have to say. Google has changed the world of satellite navigation with Google Maps. Now anyone with a phone has...

    APP OF THE DAY: Clear review (iOS)

    By 21 November 2012

    The iPhone has plenty of productivity apps but few are as simple, straightforward and easy to use as Clear. For us, it betters even the built-in Apple applications that come with the phone. Why exactly? Because this app keeps things so incredibly simple....
