Stealing in-app purchases and what it could cost you

There's a story going around today about a new hack that appears to allow users to bypass iTunes and steal in-app purchases "for free". I put "for free" in quotation marks because, as Ally pointed out in her editorial on app theft, there's no such thing as free. This time, however, the cost could be something more than money. The way I understand it, the hack in question uses a proxy, requires you to install a bogus certificate, and change DNS settings. That allows the transaction to be intercepted before it reaches iTunes, and that's what lets it cheat developers out of payment. It's also what could let the hacker collect all your information instead.

And that's dangerous.

That why alternatives like Chrome, Atomic, and Mercury are so popular. But which one is the best? And which one is the best for you?

Amazing Alex for iPhone and iPad review

Amazing Alex is a "new" game by Angry Birds maker Rovio. I say "new", because it has actually been in the App Store before -- as Casey's Contraptions. Rovio purchased the physics-based puzzle game and rebranded it as Amazing Alex. It promises 100 levels of challenging fun, the ability to create and share your own levels, and the frequent, free updates that have made Angry Birds an enduring hit.

Layout for iPad review

Layout is an iPad photography app that lets you create custom collages of your photos. I know what you're thinking -- "another collage-making app? The App Store is flooded with them!" I thought the same thing when I saw that Layout was featured by Apple. Turns out that Layout was worthy of that feature with its ability to access all your photos from not only your Albums, but also Facebook, Flickr, and Instagram. Layout also has a unique approach to collage creation and includes a slew of photo editing tools that can be applied to each individual photo of your collage.
