ShutterBee

ShutterBee: Tracking All Your Trekking

Unless you’re doing it with friends or a partner, travelling can get very lonely. Even in the company of someone else, moving from country to country, continent to continent can still be a very solitary activity. It’s also stressful, sometimes to such a degree that we forget to savour the moment. Auslogics attempts to address [More...]

Survivors: The Quest

Survivors: The Quest: A Lost-esque Puzzler With Plenty Of Life

How long could you survive on a desert island? Think about it in reality.

Hang w/

Hanging With The Cool Kids On Hang W/

What’s the age where you begin to feel behind the curve? Speaking of which, is ‘behind the curve’ even a phrase? Am I now so behind I’m actually ahead? Who knows. But no doubt there comes a time in everyone’s life when we feel like William Holden after he falls off his horse in Peckinpah [More...]

Mahjong Journey

Mahjong Journey Rediscovers The Most Classic of Classical Classics

The Asians are notorious for their gaming skill. That’s not an unfavourable stereotype, merely a fact. They’re damn good at puzzles. Having been repeatedly floored by a Japanese barman at Connect Four, I can personally attest to this.

But, for all of its faults, ‘Droids have some seriously good entertainment apps. If you’ve never really explored the capabilities of your device, check this list out. [More...]

FastWord

FastWord Makes Word Games A True Family Affair

I would like to assume there aren’t many competitive arenas where I’d lose to a five-year-old child. Contests such as General Knowledge, Long Jump, Curling and Wrestling are all areas where I reckon I’d have the edge. However, I fear the five-year-old champion of FastWord, the new competitive word puzzler app, new and out now [More...]

Have you ever taken a video with your iPhone (vertically no doubt, as it seems the whole globe collectively forgets to turn the thing horizontally for a better ratio) and been subsequently disappointed with the result? Maybe it hasn’t captured exactly the right tone. Maybe the necessarily grainy quality of the phone has rendered a [More...]
