    APP OF THE DAY: TweetCaster review (Android)

    By 17 August 2012

    Twitter apps are ten-a-penny, but most of them are pretty unimpressive. This becomes even more true when it comes to using them on a tablet. Even the official Twitter app still looks like a dog's dinner on Honeycomb, Ice cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean...

    APP OF THE DAY: ORC: Vengeance review (iPad and iPhone)

    By 16 August 2012

    It’s not every game that lets you play the bad guy, but that’s what today’s App of the Day on Pocket-lint is all about. But what happens when the bad guy turns out to be the good guy? Does that justify the badness in his past? Does that mean he’ll...

    APP OF THE DAY: Wisepilot GPS review (iPhone/Android)

    By 15 August 2012

    There are a lot of GPS apps out there, just about every single one of which will get you from A to B. The difference between them really is just how easily they do it. TomTom has a bit of a monopoly in this area, and rightly so: it makes a brilliant smartphone...

    By 13 August 2012

    APP OF THE DAY: Pubtran (Android)

    By 10 August 2012

    You know the situation, you need to get somewhere - in London, in this case - and you don't know how. Finding out is usually hard, not because the journey is different, but because there are lots of different modes of transport, and not usually one place...

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

    By 8 August 2012

    Strategy games on the iPad tend to be fairly disappointing. You would think all that extra screen space makes for a really good strategy experience. It is usually the controls that let the apps down. With Cubemen this is definitely not the case. It's...

    APP OF THE DAY: Font Quiz review (iPhone)

    By 6 August 2012

    Let's be honest, Logos Quiz is a fantastic game: accessible and surprisingly addictive. It's very simple too, which perhaps accounts for its success. Simplicity isn't a bad thing and neither is being short enough to skip through and complete in a day,...

    By 25 July 2012

    Not every app needs to tick along at 100 miles an hour to keep your attention. Some apps can be so fiendishly addictive that even the slowest moving of games is a must have download. Machinarium is pretty much that. Addictive, innovative, beautifully...
