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.

iOS 8 wants: Files.app + DocumentPicker, because file handling on iPhone and iPad has hit a brick wall

I deeply, truly, desperately want Apple to add a Files app and DocumentPicker controller to the iPhone and iPad in iOS 8. I've wanted it going on 4 years, and every year more than the last. It is, in my very humble opinion, one of the biggest, most frustrating holes remaining on Apple's mobile operating system, and all the more so because it seems like a model for fixing it has been in successful use for years already. Right now we're saddled with the complexity and frustration of iOS documents locked in app and iCloud jails. We're driven to outdated filesystems like Dropbox because Apple hasn't yet provided a next generation alternative. It needs to happen and so I'm once again asking for it this year and for iOS 8.

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?

Lillium Purse for iPad mini by Intrepid Bag Co. review

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. There are two pockets, one for your iPad mini, and one for anything else, including an iPhone or chargers.

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.

CFMulti DSLR CompactFlash media card adapter review

With the exception of the Mac Pro, every Mac that's available these days has a built-in SDXC card slot. That makes it convenient to transfer digital photos and video from cameras that use SD card slots. If you prefer a camera that uses CompactFlash you're not out of luck, fortunately. The solution for that problem is the CFMulti from Synchrotech.

Smartphone cameras are getting better and better every day. We've already put the iPhone 5s and the HTC One M8 head to head, so it's only fair we give Samsung's Galaxy S5 the same treatment. Even though the iPhone 5s is already approaching 7 months old, until Apple releases the iPhone 6, these are the options we have to choose from right now. If camera quality is a deciding factor for you when making a smartphone purchase, follow along to see how the Galaxy S5, iPhone 5s, and HTC One M8 hold up not just on paper, but in the real world!

Leap Motion Controller review: A Mac controller that you don't touch

Many people have been wondering what Apple will do with the technology they acquired when they bought Primesense, the Israeli developer of the 3D sensor technology Microsoft used in the first Kinect peripheral for the Xbox 360 video game console. That's still anyone's guess. But if you'd like a Kinect-like interface for your Mac, you can buy one today thanks to Leap Motion. How well does it work? Let's take a look.
