    APP OF THE DAY: Soundbites review (iPhone/iPad)

    By 26 September 2012

    We do love a good cooking app over at Pocket-lint. Heck, we even invited a Michelin-starred chef into our pantry to put together some food for us. It's a tough job, we know. Our culinary skills might be top-notch, but recent times have seen quite a few...

    APP OF THE DAY: Earn To Die review (iOS)

    By 25 September 2012

    Zombie mania is upon us. It's hard not to bump into a zombie-based game or even turn on the TV without seeing some undead-featured show. Daresay zombies have almost got boring, so for Earn To Die - the oddly-titled 2D side-scrolling zombie smash-'em-up...

    APP OF THE DAY: Rayman Jungle Run (iPhone/iPad/Android)

    By 19 September 2012

    We do love a good platformer at Pocket-lint, be it the glory days of Mario and Sonic or the weirdness of classics like Yoshi's Island. Rayman was never one we really got though, the character lacked some of the draw against people like Megaman.  Sadly...

    Private car parks are a miserable pain in everyone's life. Gone are the days where you could pull up outside a shop, grab a parking space, race in, get what you need and get out. These days you have to park 30 miles away and pay £900 an hour for the...

    APP OF THE DAY: The Simpsons Tapped Out review (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch)

    By 5 September 2012

    The Simpsons have traditionally fallen into that ether between really great or really bad. Tapped Out however is a bit of a rarity, in that its absolutely brilliant. Think of it like a very simplified version of SimCity, but with all the wit and charm...
