Google Docs for iPhone and iPad review: It's just as bad as Google Sheets

Google Docs is one of Google's newest iPhone and iPad apps. Just be sure you don't confuse it with the Google Docs service itself, because the Google Docs app deals only with word processing and text editing. If you want to access your spreadsheets, you'll need to grab the Google Sheets app as well. Some folks may ask why Google decided to split these services into two separate apps that were already accessible with the Google Drive app. Perhaps for extra features or capabilities? I recently reviewed Google Sheets and found that wasn't exactly the case. So is Google Docs any different?

Spotify for iPhone review: Finally, some progress!

I have an ongoing love hate relationship with pretty much every music streaming service available. I just want them to be better as none of them as a whole are the best. That's why I was excited when Spotify majorly overhauled their iPhone app. It was a chance to try the service out again and see if the glaring issues that push me on the Rdio side of the fence are finally remedied. Is it good enough for me to give it a second chance? More importantly, is it good enough for you, our readers, to choose it over the many available options? Let's find out...

Google Sheets for iPhone and iPad review: It sucks

Google Sheets is Google's latest attempt at letting you access their online spreadsheets app on your iPhone or iPad. This functionality was previously handled by the Google Drive app but Google recently decided to make dedicated apps for their productivity suite the way Microsoft and Apple have done with Office for iPad and iWork's Numbers app. Unfortunately, Google Sheet, as currently implemented, isn't as good as either Microsoft's or Apple's app. And unless you're already all-in on Google's office suite — which many are — it's not worth your time.

Incipio Lightning Charge/Sync Cable review

Not all cables are made the same. But if they have the MFI logo (Made For iPhone/iPad/iPod), like this one does, you can count on them working well.

Intake for iPad review

Intake landed on iPad today, offering an insane amount of challenge in a really unique package. In short, pills fall from the top of the screen, and you have to tap them before they hit the bottom. They'll come in one of two different colors, and you need to switch between those two colors by tapping the bar at the bottom of the screen. If you have the right color active while tapping the right pill, you get extra points and earn a score multiplier if you can keep a string of them going. Even if the pill hits the bottom, if you have the same color active, you'll be shielded from an overdose. If you hit certain waypoints, such as level 25, you can chose to start there rather than from the beginning, though expect a challenge.

Leo's Fortune for iPhone and iPad review

Leo's Fortune is a cute platforming game for iPhone and iPad that's made a big splash in the App Store recently and for a lot of good reasons. It has finely crafted stages with beautiful graphics and clever puzzles. The story has a whimsical, old-timey charm to it and strong voice acting to boot. But is it one of the best iPhone games or best iPad games?

The Intrepid Bag Co.'s Lillium Purse is really cool. It's a side satchel purse designed for the iPad mini. It's gorgeous leather on the outside and soft suede inside to protect against scratches.

Toon Boom Storyboard Pro Review

Storyboard Pro is one of the outstanding animation apps made by Toon Boom Animation. They are the Industry standard with clients like Disney, Warner Bros, and Pixar. Now, I’m not a storyboard artist. I’m also not an animator. While I’ve always been interested in the art of animation, it’s only recently that I started doing it. After some initial research, I decided to use Toon Boom Storyboard Pro and Harmony to create the cut scenes for my game, Crow’s Quest.
