    APP OF THE DAY: UK Bus Times review (Android)

    By 16 November 2012

    We've mentioned bus apps before. Why, you might ask, are we so obsessed with them? Well, the answer, dear reader, is that buses are Satan's own work and we need all the help we can get to overpower their forces of evil. For example, there are certain...

    APP OF THE DAY: Autodesk 123D Design review (iPad, Mac and PC)

    By 15 November 2012

    APP OF THE DAY: iCueda v2 review

    By 14 November 2012

    We would like to think, given that we remain a fairly young crowd at Pocket-lint, that our memory isn't completely gone. iCueda however has proved us wrong. Here is a fiendishly difficult app, which asks you to do something as simple as copy patterns...

    APP OF THE DAY: Hill Climb Racing review (Android)

    By 12 November 2012

    There has been a run of addictive linear games on mobile platforms recently, from the likes of Ski Safari to Temple Run, and the trend doesn't seem to be stopping. Today's App of the Day offers something similar, but with a bit of a twist, because it...

    APP OF THE DAY: Netflix review (Windows 8)

    By 9 November 2012

    When Microsoft launched Windows 8 in New York last month the firm told Pocket-lint that it was being careful to get good apps in the store. It went on to tell us that that the apps you have when you launch are crucial to the success of your ecosystem....

    APP OF THE DAY: Angry Birds Star Wars review (iOS, Android, WP8, Kindle Fire, Windows 8, Mac, PC)

    By 8 November 2012

    We have to admit, we haven't been as excited about a Rovio game since we played the original Angry Birds all those many years ago (three, to be precise). The blend of rewarding casual gaming and Star Wars was always going to reinvigorate a franchise...

    APP OF THE DAY: Curiosity - what's inside the cube review (iOS and Android)

    By 6 November 2012

    Many of the apps we've featured on Pocket-lint have been games, many entertainment based. However none of them has been quite like this latest App of the Day, the first project for Peter Molyneux's 22Cans development studio. More than a game, it's a social...

    APP OF THE DAY: Hotel Tonight review (iOS / Android)

    By 2 November 2012

    The idea behind Hotel Tonight is to get you a hotel room. Tonight. So the name of the app is pretty much bang-on. It's very much a short-order type thing. So rooms become available from about 12pm on the day you're looking to stay, and can - in theory...

    APP OF THE DAY: Band of the Day review (iOS)

    By 1 November 2012

    Today, App of the Day on Pocket-lint goes under a different name. Today it’s Band of the Day. Why? Well, because that’s the name of the app that we’re reviewing. Welcome one and all, to Band of the Day. Band of the Day Platform iOS Price Free Where...

    By 30 October 2012

    Cheap as chips, they’re lovely, get it while it’s hot. If these are the kinds of phrases that get your juices flowing, well, you’re probably a market trader. If, however, you love technology and you like to pay an excellent price for it, then today’s...

    APP OF THE DAY: PocketWarwick review (iPad / iPhone / iPod touch / Android)

    By 25 October 2012

    Celeb-endorsed applications are not particularly rare; we've seen a few of them at Pocket-lint, including Tom Daley Dive 2012. However, it is extremely rare that a game or app has been devised and worked on by the celebrity him or herself. PocketWarwick...

    APP OF THE DAY: Kumo Lumo review (iOS)

    By 24 October 2012

    Keep it simple is clearly the motto driving Kumo Lumo. A game that doesn't ask you to do much, but delivers plenty to keep you hooked. The app follows Kumo Lumo, a cloud that you drag about the screen with your finger, while you try to stop the earth...

    APP OF THE DAY: Edge review (Android)

    By 19 October 2012

    Sometimes App of The Day is an app we couldn't live without; sometimes it's a game we love; and sometimes - like today - it's a game we utterly despise because it's so fiendishly difficult, but simply can't live without because of it's style and sheer...

    Aim for the stars and you’ll clear the fence by a mile - apparently words from Buzz Aldrin, although we can’t actually find any evidence of the fact. As it stands, it doesn’t really matter because what’s at the core of that nugget has nothing...

    APP OF THE DAY: EyeEm review (Android/iPhone/Windows Phone)

    By 15 October 2012

    There is no shortage of social networks and no shortage of photos apps. There's also a growing mass of apps that punch the two things together. The name on everyone's lips is Instagram, naturally, but that's not the only route if you're looking to funk...

    APP OF THE DAY: Oh! Sheep (iOS)

    By 12 October 2012

    There is a very definite format to some games these days. Everything from the level selecton menu and the way the game is structured is very similar. Think the Angry Birds layout, and you've got a lot of games from Where's My Perry to Oh! Sheep down to...

    APP OF THE DAY: Manga-Camera review (iOS)

    By 10 October 2012

    A lot of camera apps promise plenty but don't deliver much. The idea behind Manga-Camera is so simple, we really weren't convinced on downloading it that it could be much fun. One look at the app page and the comic style photos it seems to create appear...

    It's rare that we'll revisit a piece of software that has been awarded App of the Day status in the past, but just occasionally, there can be so many changes made with an update that it's worth taking a further look. Algoriddim's djay is one such app....

    APP OF THE DAY: Strava run review (iPhone/Android)

    By 3 October 2012

    There are a lot of fitness apps out there, most cost money and very few do much more than map out a run, give you music and let you know how many calories you've burnt. Strava run, however, like its cycling cousin, does a lot more than that and best of...

    APP OF THE DAY: World of Goo review (Android)

    By 2 October 2012

    To be honest, World of Goo is a bit odd.The first time you load it up, it doesn't make huge amounts of sense. And if you don't know what you're doing, it can take a little while to fumble through. But there's also something vaguely unnerving about helping...
