Love Asynchronous Multiplayer But Hate Word Games? You’ll Love These [iOS]

It all really blew up with the popularity of Words With Friends, and since then a huge number of games have been released to take advantage of the “with friends” turn-based multiplayer system. Some have come from Zynga, the original creators of Words With Friends, and some have come from other developers. Regardless of who is making the games, more keep coming, and a few of them are really good. The games on this list feature asynchronous multiplayer, but instead of being simple word games, this list features quite a bit more action.

Spread Disease & Destroy Humanity With The Best Pandemic Games [Web, iOS & Android]

The aim of the game is simple: you must infiltrate the human race, spread your disease and try to wipe-out humanity. It’s a game of strategy and vengeance! I was immediately hooked, and over the last decade or so have played as many variations on the pandemic simulation as possible. I’ve collected the best of the best, from old browser games to cross-platform mobile versions.

3 Ways To Breathe New Life Into An Old Hard Drive

It’s in the human nature to collect stuff and in the digital age we mostly collect data. For a long time, the storage capacities of hard drives seemed to increase too slow to match user demands. We have now reached a turning point. With the aid of generous free Cloud storage and streaming services, it seems like local data storage needs are peaking and will eventually level off.

Shuttle Player: The Robust and Feature-Complete Music Experience [Android]

Finding that one perfect music player can be tough. Finding one that’s free? Nearly impossible. Rocket Player has been my near-perfect choice for the past few months, but I recently found a successor: Shuttle Player. I would never have found this gem if it weren’t for MakeUseOf reader Jarrod Bush, so shoutouts to him. And wow, what a find. This may just be the most polished free music player available on Android.

Create an RSS Feed Reader Using Google Spreadsheet

Looking for a more practical, everyday use for my growing collection of Google spreadsheets, I decided to see if I could use one function I haven’t covered here at MUO yet called “ImportFeed”, to try and develop a personal DIY feeder reader that I could actually make use of every day – rather than installing some desktop application, or visiting some online feed reader service.

Top Lost Hardware Services to Trace Your Stolen iPhone or Android

Bad things happen. Devices got stolen. Maybe you leave your phone on the table in the pub after you’ve had a few. Maybe a sneaky trickster like the one on the right there manages to delicately extract it from your purse. Maybe a stray horse eats it. These things happen. But it’s up to you to prepare for them.

How I Freelance Without My PC – Using Windows Phone As A Mobile Office

One of the things I love about a freelance career is being able to up sticks from my home office and go to a local café, bar or library to work in a different environment. It can prove extremely productive and as they say, a change is as good as a rest. I’ve even used the boot of my MPV as a makeshift office! While I generally have my Windows 8 Acer Iconia W7 series tablet with me in such situations, there are of course times when I’ve been caught out.

The recent 11.0.3 update of iTunes brings back even more cover art features, playlist functions and some other tips we haven’t covered before that you may find useful.
