There are not many games for mobile devices that fascinate me. A game has to have many elements in order to qualify for something that can keep me interested for quite some time. What I’m looking for in an iOS game is to be casual, have a sense of continuity (upgrades, achievements, etc. etc…) and multiplayer features.
You might ask why casual? Well for two reasons! One being that I can’t spend a lot of time gaming and the last thing I need is to play on a 3.5 inch screen for 10 hours! The second reason is that Diablo III is close to release and soon my life will be over.
I can’t hide it, I’m a fan of the guys at Total Eclipse because every game they create has amazing graphics and everything is hand-drawn to perfection. They just released Clockwork Brain for the iPhone and the iPad and all I can say is that this game has “the full package”. Let’s look at the game in greater detail.
Clockwork Brain (AppStore link) is a Puzzle game for the iPhone and iPad that’s free to play and includes mini-games that will not only entertain you but at the same time train your visual, spatial,
We’ve noticed a slight problem with IMAP mail on the Mail App for Mac: for some reason, outgoing messages we sent hadn’t been saved on the server by default. This obviously resulted in a lot of confusion when looking for attachments we’ve sent, arrangements with clients, etc.
As you may already know, the difference between the two main email protocols, IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) is that the IMAP protocol enables you to keep and open emails from the server, while the POP3 connection requires the download of the emails to your computer.
Minecraft got released for iOS devices 4 days ago on the App Store, and seems to be a hit! How couldn’t it be? With millions of players of the original series, we can only assume that many people would be eager to check it out on their mobile devices.
If you have no idea what Minecraft is, it is a game that you can virtually do anything. When you start playing, you have no resources or tools. By exploring, chopping trees and mining dirt with your bare hands you can start creating your tools, build a home or a whole empire!
Growl, available on the AppStore, is the perfect application for the avid professional freelancer, who loves to indulge in or monitor instant messaging, emails, and many other notification-intensive applications.
The worst procrastination around is when we’re distracted by numerous notifications occurring on our desktops. Sure, you’ll say, “why not just turn everything off?” You can’t; not when you’re expecting that email from a client, or waiting for your colleague to log on, or just can’t ignore the notification of that call from your mother.
I don’t know about you, but I’m a fanatical gamer. Nowadays, I play RPGs. I’m not sure what drives me to this genre; it might be the constant evolution of a character, might be the competition, I don’t know. All i know is that when I find a good RPG, every scheduled task becomes non existent! There are numerous times I wished I could have the motivation to work as much as I would love to get just one more level. And that wish has become true with the application Epic Win!
AirDrop was intoduced in OS X Lion and it’s an amazing feature! AirDrop lets you send and receive files between other Mac users easy and fast, even without being connected on the same wireless network! When I upgraded my OS to Lion, this was one of the first features that I wanted to test but wasn’t able to even see the icon on my Finder. Seems that unless you have a quite new computer, you’re not able to use AirDrop because your Wi-Fi card does not support PAN (Personal Area Networking). PAN enables your device to scan for other AirDrop users even if they are on another wireless network or not connected at all.
I have a Mac, an iPhone, and a Moleskine Calendar.
Well actually, the Moleskine calendar was my girlfriend’s idea for me to start organizing myself… and it worked, for a short while.
I’m one of those people that just can’t stick to one way. I’ve read and used tons of material on improving productivity and making the whole experience a little bit more fun, but it just didn’t work out for me in the long run. I would try an App – quit an App in a matter of days, simply because It wouldn’t stick. I couldn’t be consistent with it.
With Fantastical, I have a new experience to share…
Apple pushed the iOS 5 upgrade yesterday. Being the good fan-Boy I am, I rushed to install it. The procedure is a bit complicated! The steps I followed were the following:
