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

    By 3 July 2012

    Photography is almost as popular as gaming as a subject for app developers, and with good reason. The iPad has been a revelation for photographers, amateur and otherwise, showing off their wares and allowing them to manipulate the images in millions of...

    APP OF THE DAY: Open Sea! review (Android)

    By 2 July 2012

    When it comes to mobile games, we're big believers that simple is best. Simple concept, simple execution. But being a "believer" might not be the best thing for Open Sea!, our choice for today, as you might find yourself wondering if the holy book has...

    APP OF THE DAY: Firefox for Android beta

    By 29 June 2012

    The pre-installed web browser on Android phones is okay. We wouldn't care to be any more enthusiastic about it than that. It's a bit limited, can be slow and isn't inspiring from a user interface perspective. The good news is that it's been given its...

    APP OF THE DAY: Lookout Security and Anitivirus review (Android)

    By 28 June 2012

    Security software isn’t the sexiest area to think about, but then neither is getting rinsed for all you're worth by a malicious app that you’ve mistakenly downloaded. While that may not be a problem on iOS, it’s starting to become something worth...

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

    By 26 June 2012

    Draw Something has a lot to answer for. Not only do we now find ourselves nudged more often than a builder's arm on mini-skirt Monday, thanks to having grown tired of playing it about a week after we started (something it shares with Tiny Tower, Angry...

    APP OF THE DAY: Wimbledon review (Android)

    By 25 June 2012

    It has been raining a lot recently which can only mean one thing: yes, it's time for The Championships at Wimbledon to get under way. Starting today, 25 June 2012, the Championships are in their 126th year. It's also this time of year when work in the...

    APP OF THE DAY: Magic Town review (iPad)

    By 22 June 2012

    Today’s App of the Day launched in a much more soft affair a few weeks back as a web application and, as we said at the time when we interviewed the man behind it, the test will be when it finally comes to iPad. Well, that day has arrived. Magic Town...

    APP OF THE DAY: Shop Scan Save review (iOS and Android)

    Everyone loves a saving. Just look at the sales, bands of angry mobs descending on to high streets salivating at the prospect of grabbing that item of clothing for half price. So behold Shop Scan Save, an app that will enable bargain hunters to start...

    APP OF THE DAY: Pocket Planes review (iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch)

    By 20 June 2012

    There are a few apps which are so great that we have been coming back to them daily for months. Tiny Tower was one of those apps. Insanely addictive and more fun than untying Usain Bolt’s shoelaces, it has remained an iPhone favourite for some time....

    APP OF THE DAY: Virtua Tennis Challenge review (iPad / iPhone)

    By 19 June 2012

    If you are reading this with a sense of nostalgia then you no doubt owned a Sega Dreamcast and remember the halcyons days of the previous generation of console gaming. Still, rather than reminisce about gaming days gone by, you should relish the fact...

    APP OF THE DAY: Cobook review (Mac)

    By 18 June 2012

    Easy access to your most important information is one of the benefits of modern devices, be it a smartphone or computer. Smartphones, thanks to their light take on things, often offer a solution that surpasses some of the more cumbersome desktop equivalents. ...

    APP OF THE DAY: Fieldrunners HD review (Android)

    By 15 June 2012

    If the first-person shooter was the game that defined the PC, then surely tower defence games must be the thing that sets mobile phones apart as gaming devices. It's not a lot of fun trying to play games that require elaborate moves on a touchscreen device,...

    Kinectimals roars its way onto Android, finally

    By 15 June 2012

    Android users can now get their very own virtual cub – the animal variety rather than the dib dib dub sort – with the arrival of Kinectimals at the Google Play Store.  For those unfamiliar with the game – it’s already available on both the iOS...

    APP OF THE DAY: Monsters Ate My Condo review (iPhone / iPad / Android)

    By 14 June 2012

    You can probably tell by the name of this game alone that it's as crazy as it sounds. Created by the same developers as Flick Football on behalf of Adult Swim, the game is best described as a crazy Japanese version of Jenga, but that doesn’t even begin...

    By 13 June 2012

    Who'd have thought that flinging virtual pandas out of cannons to the plinky-plonky sounds of a mesmerising 8-bit-esque soundtrack would ever be considered normal? Well, Land-a Panda delivers that exact bonkers concept is a sleek and stylised package....

    With around 10.2 squillion apps available, or something, there's pretty much an app for everything. Dead hedgehog identification? There's an app for that. Teach yourself gynecology? There's an app for that. Peering into your neighbour's house while she's...

    Gaming on Android just keeps getting better. None more so than Rebuild, an app that takes tower defence to a whole new level and then adds zombies. Rebuild is simple straightforward app fun without the emphasis on over-the-top graphics or gameplay gimmicks. ...

    APP OF THE DAY: Sprinkle review (Android)

    By 4 June 2012

    "Physics" is a term applied to games with scant regard for the sort of thing we were learning in Mr Dick's class back in school. We're suddenly not talking about Hooke's Law or drawing patterns in iron filings but, if memory serves correct, there was...

    By 1 June 2012

    We think it's fair to say that, as good a service as Twitter is, when it comes to making apps, it's second in line to the dreadful Facebook for making a hash (pun very much intended) of things. Hootsuite aims to provide solutions to the many problems...

    We really can't imagine how Plague Inc. came about but it has to be one of the most twisted applications currently out on the App Store. The application asks you to design your own disease and then attempt to use it to wipe out the entire world.  It...
