Adrift for iOS: The puzzle game that makes solving a Rubik's Cube look easy

Adrift for both iPhone and iPad is a puzzle game with a simple premise but not so simple game play. You're tasked with drawing paths to each color in each world. The paths appear on three sides of a cube and they can't intersect. While game play starts out easy, it quickly gets challenging.

iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c reviews: 3 months later

Three months ago Apple, for the first time ever, released not one but two new iPhones in the same year - the forward thinking iPhone 5s and the fun and friendly iPhone 5c. Both were variants on last year's iPhone 5. The 5s kept the same design but added a monstrous new 64-bit Apple A7 chipset, Apple M7 motion coprocessor, an even better iSight camera, and the Touch ID fingerprint identity scanner. The 5c kept most of the same internals but switched to brightly colored plastic backs. It's a little early to determine just how successful Apple's strategy will be over the course of the year, but having used the new phones for 90 days, it's absolutely long enough to see how both phones are doing for us the consumers. Often lost among the endless marketshare, profit share, and usage share metrics are what matters most to us, the people that buy and live with the phones - how well they work for us not just on launch day, but every day.

MOGA ACE POWER game controller review: Button mashing comes to iPhone!

The MOGA ACE POWER is one of the first MFi (Made for iPhone) game controllers to hit the market. This new generation of Apple-supported, Lightning adapter powered controllers promise even better compatibility and performance, but are they really ready for primetime? Do they make that much of a difference? And can they be used over AirPlay to make a virtual console?

Flote Hands-Free tablet holder for iPad review

I love using my iPad. I use it everywhere in my home. I find holding my iPad cumbersome, however, and if I am cooking or doing my make up I want to have something that holds my iPad at the proper angle without having to worry about it falling down or simply falling out of my line of sight. If you are like me, and wish you had something to hold your iPad for you, then Flote might be just what you've been looking for!

Imagining a 13-inch iPad Pro

The minute Apple launches a new device, say the iPad Air or Retina iPad mini, rumors switch immediately to the next. In this case, a 13-inch "iPad Pro". After all, if there can be a MacBook Air and a MacBook Pro, why not an iPad Air and iPad Pro? If Apple can make the iPad more portable, why not more powerful? Now, I'm not so much interested in the rumor — there will always be rumors — but in how Apple could realize such an object. Could iOS be scaled to that screen size, and what it would provide beyond the existing, 9.7-inch iPad, or the 11-inch or 13-inch MacBook Air. Previously I imagined a 4-inch iPhone, which became the iPhone 5, and a 7-inch iPad, which we later saw as the mini. Earlier this year I tried imagining a 5-inch iPhone, and... we'll see what happens with the iPhone 6. So now let's imagine a 13-inch iPad Pro...

iPad mini with Retina display review

In 2012 Apple took the year-old 9.7-inch iPad 2, condensed it down to 7.9 inches, and re-launched it as the new iPad mini. Every inch an iPad, yet one of stark contrasts - a design from the future wrapped around technology from the past. It had an Apple A5 processor in the age of the Apple A6, and a 1024x768 standard density display in an age of 2048x1536 Retina. Still, for many, the lack of size mattered. Smaller, thinner, less expensive, and, most importantly, lighter than any iPad before it, the mini quickly found its way into pockets, purses, and hearts. It was such an incredibly good tiny tablet that otherwise incredibly discerning people - people who vowed never to go near a standard density display again - forgave it its shortcomings, even if its chunky pixels never let their eyes forget it. Enter the 2013 iPad mini with Retina display. Ever-so-slightly thicker, ever-so-slightly heavier, it manages to pack the full 2048x1536 resolution into an even higher density screen, and skips an entire processor generation to do it. Apple A7 powered, 64-bit, it appears atomically identical in almost every way to the iPad Air. Small wonder indeed... or is it?
