Review: Monument Valley's Forgotten Shores expansion is a triumph

When it comes to gaming, in-app purchases are a tricky thing. Some games use Apple's mechanism to wrest more cash out of you to complete levels faster; others enrich the game experience with new costumes and player characters; others still use the in-app purchase to build off the original game.

It's that last option that has come to Monument Valley, ustwo's brilliantly-constructed architectural puzzler. The Escher-homaging app first appeared on the iOS App Store in April, winning a number of awards shortly thereafter — including Apple's own prestigious Design Award at the 2014 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Monument Valley was one of my own favorite iOS games to play back in April, and I've been eagerly awaiting its expansion ever since I heard rumors of its existence a few months back. Was it worth the wait and the $2 purchase? Oh, architectural gods, yes.

iMovie 2.0 for iPhone and iPad review

Apple has recently made some pretty big changes when it comes to its iMovie application for iOS. It recently got an overhaul for iOS 7, but perhaps more importantly for more people, iMovie went free – at least for anyone buying a new iOS device, anyway. That's particularly important because it opens up a whole new audience, those who might not have been willing to drop $4.99 on a video editor for their iPhone or iPad.

LockInfo 3.0 first look [Jailbreak]


YouTube Link

I got a chance to look at the brand new version of LockInfo a bit early so I've put together my thoughts for you guys to check out while you (im)patiently wait for the public release.

For those of you that don't know, LockInfo is a great little jailbreak app that makes up for the poor (read: lack of) notification system Apple has left us with under iOS. I wrote a LockInfo setup and walkthrough a while back and now we're going to look at the newest version of LockInfo by David Ashman.
