  • Another Running Game…

    Or so I thought. Rayman Jungle Run (Canadian store, YMMV) was made free over the year-end holiday season. I grabbed it, though my iOS game collection is a little too bloated at the moment… And I am so glad I did. It has all of the zany atmosphere and inventive puzzle-solving aspects of the newer […]

  • iPhone 5s and 5c

    Finally no longer rumor, the two above phones have been announced, release is imminent. I’m not sure of what to think… I am going to get one, without a doubt, and there are clear improvements over the iPhone 5.  I have this nagging feeling that they could have added something else, though I’m not sure […]

  • Google Play Books redux

    I gave a quick review of Google Play Books when it first came out with user uploads.  (tl;dr version: meh.) It turns out that the iOS version is the weakest of their representations.  As foolish as that is, I should have known.  Now that I have tried the Android version, I see some significant advantages. […]

  • Office for iPhone

    So Microsoft finally released Office for iPhone.  Even two years ago I would have cared, but I can’t get excited enough to investigate it beyond skimming a few announcement pages. Maybe it’s related to the fact that recently I have been so disgusted with Word for Mac beachballing when I try to do something complicated […]

  • The look of iOS 7

    I agree for the most part with this post. I’m not crazy about the icons – I particularly dislike the settings icon. Me: “I don’t like the settings icon” Tina: “Yeah I preferred the gears better” Me: “It is gears, see?” Tina: “It looks more like the fan in the back of a computer” But, […]

  • iPad Coding

    I have decided to field-test the iPad as a work tool on our trip to the US. I will be definitely cut off from 3G, and will have only occasional Wi-Fi (unless the bus has it, in which case I’ll be laughing). I bought Textastic on a sale today and it’s very impressive with its […]

  • ToDo done

    I went on a little while ago about ToDo apps, and finally decided to jump on Appigo’s ToDo for the Mac.  It’s OK.  It has a few nice features but it’s missing things like adding tasks easily from Mail, or a nice quick systemwide interface using a hotkey. They do have a systemwide interface, but […]

  • To Do Apps… What To Do?

    The Potion Factory finally came out of hiding and released v1.0 of The Hit List (after 2 years of nothing).  At the same time they released the iPhone app and their own proprietary sync service.  None of this is cheap. I have THL on my Mac.  I was a champion of it for a long time, […]

  • Studio Six AudioTools

    I finally broke down and got this app, as I figure I will be needing it in a little while.  It’s quite an extensive app, much more than the RTA I was expecting.  It has A- and C- Weighting (as well as none) for the RTA, as well as peaks and average SPL displays and […]

  • MacHeist has an iOS app

    MacHeist, notably using “The HEIST” as their new tagline, has just today released an iOS app.  I was at first put off that it was 99 cents, and not free, but I realized it almost certainly leads to some serious savings in something else.  If only I knew what that something else was, to know […]
