Think Shazam Only Identifies Music? Think Again [iPhone]

17th November, 2012

More often that not, the creator of an app is content to sit back and enjoy the success and not evolve. That’s fine in some situations, but it’s really fantastic when an app creator is willing to keep moving forward. This extra effort makes for an app that even years after its release, is still worth talking about. Shazam certainly fits the description of an app that was not content with its original functionality.

Convertible Converts Any Measurement With A Slick User Interface [iOS, Free For A Limited Time]

14th November, 2012

There are lots of different units of measurements for almost anything you could want out there in the world. Along with all the things we can measure, there are hundreds of regional units that differ depending on what part of the world you are in. This can be intensely confusing. How do you remember how many feet are in a meter? How can you know how to convert a US dollar into a Euro? Quite simply, it’s impossible to remember all of this.

Magic 2013 – The Most Fun I’ve Ever Had Playing A Game On The Go [iPad]

14th November, 2012

About a year ago, I was hardcore into Magic: The Gathering. I have amassed a large collection of cards over the years of playing, but in time, I found myself not having enough time to keep up with the Magic scene. I won’t lie; I miss playing a great deal. The subtle intricacies of the card game are like nothing else. The skill and strategy involved in a game of Magic is enough to flex the brain muscles of even the smartest players.

NES Games That Retailers Chronically Overcharge For [MUO Gaming]

13th November, 2012

Recently, I wrote an article about NES games that sell for insane prices. Games like Stadium Events can easily sell for thousands of dollars. That’s all well and good, but there are some classic NES games that are really popular that constantly sell for more than their value. You can walk into any retro video game retailer and see these games selling for far too much. Games that are really popular today were also really popular when the NES launched.

Activator Is The Most Important Jailbreak Tweak Available [Cydia]

10th November, 2012

There is one tweak that is the unsung hero of Cydia. Activator is the backbone of so many Cydia tweaks because it allows for gesture-based controls of almost anything. It can launch apps and do almost whatever you can imagine. It sits in the background on your iOS device and offers a slew of options. It may not receive the praise of some other tweaks like MyWi, Dreamboard, Winterboard, and others, but without Activator, many other tweaks would not be able to work.

9th November, 2012

One of the most important ways to stay healthy is with a good workout. It keeps your body active and makes you feel great – once you get through the pain and suffering of the actual workout, of course. Getting motivated when your workouts are boring can be difficult. It can feel like you keep doing the same thing over again because you know it works, but that’s really no fun. Working out everyday to the same few routines can be a real bother.
