The Week's Best Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone Apps

I don't always get ill, but when I do I catch something seriously nasty. I guess I must have a fairly strong immune system, because I tend not to come down with things that incapacitate other people. When I do, it takes me completely out of commission for a few days. Fortunately 21st century writing can be done from the comfort of one's own bed, and while I am able to type coherently, here is this week's list: Read More >>

The Week's Best Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone Apps

Curating apps isn't as easy as you might think. Some weeks can have so many new releases that I have trouble deciding what to include, while others have so few that I struggle to actually fill up the list. Fortunately this week is a good week, and a lot of incredibly cool stuff has been released. Enjoy. Read More >>

I'm a big fan of sarcasm; if it was possible to have super-human sarcastic abilities then that's what I'd get in a nuclear accident. The problem is that sarcasm relies on tone of voice more than anything, so it's impossible to denote sarcasm 100 per cent of the time. Sarcastic, or douchenozzle? You will never know. On an unrelated note, here's your weekly dose of mobile appery. Read More >>

Trains are uncomfortable and expensive contraptions, aren't they? This week I managed to nab myself a first class upgrade for £1.80 which I thought was great, but first class isn't all it's cracked up to be. The most disappointing thing was the free snack box in times gone by you would be given a mini picnic. This time there wasn't even any cheese! So here I am, grumpy and sans-cheese, writing up this weeks list: Read More >>

March's Essential Apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone

I thought February was a big month, then March came along and beat it into a pulp: We got a nice shiny £1 coin to distract us from the government's maniacal schemes; Chromecast finally got a UK launch, and UK editions of Kotaku and LifeHacker were unveiled. Read More >>

Microsoft Office for iPad: Full Video Walkthrough and Hands On

After Office for iOS proved itself a pretty big disappointment to anyone who was hoping to actually do things with the app, the long-anticipated Office for iPad has finally hit the App Store. It's ok; you can let out a sigh of relief. This time, Microsoft got it right. Read More >>

The weather is going absolutely ballistic recently, with 'spring' arriving alongside a bout of erratic weather patterns that has included sporadic periods of thunder and hail. Yet five minutes later, the sun rears its ugly head as if nothing had ever happened. With that going on I've barely left the house, which means plenty of internet research for your weekly dose of apps. Read More >>

I've noticed an abominable trend in recent months, one that should fill people with rage: photography apps that are being updated to include iPad compatibility. It's bad enough that we have to deal with idiots taking photos with the native iPad camera app without developers encouraging them as well. It certainly makes my job harder when trying to find some decent new apps: Read More >>

The Week's Best Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone Apps

I know the term 'apps' was created to make it clear that a piece of software was made for a mobile device. What I don't like is the trend of 'apps' for computers. As we all know, app is short for 'application,' and application has a synonym: programme. Stylising 'apps' for computers is just reinventing the wheel and calling it the rolling mechanism; it's nothing more than a marketing gimmick. Rant over, here is this weeks list of mobile applications: Read More >>

In an attempt to build a repertoire of employable skills, I've started volunteering in the communications department for a local housing association. Volunteering is a funny thing, it's like having an actual job but without the financial incentive. You know, the reason why most people go to work in the first place. Speaking of work, here's my weekly contribution to this fine website: Read More >>

February's Essential Apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone

February's been a hell of a month: we saw the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, possibly Marvel's biggest gamble to date; the unveiling of a massive array of mobile gadgets at MWC, and the disappearance of Facebook's email service, prompting confusion among many who were unaware that the service survived past 2010. Most of all, we saw the release of some hella' cool apps which you should download immediately, before the developer decides they've become too popular. Read More >>

My tech-savvy dad just got Windows 8. It doesn't bode well when someone who understands computers needs help from his son set it up. For some reason it's subtly different to my copy of Windows 8, so I'm struggling to figure it out too. So instead of being helpful, I'm hiding and writing up this week's best-apps list: Read More >>

There are some upsides to this apocalyptic weather: I live in the North so there's no need to retrofit my car to make it submersible, and the other day I saw a woman unable to get onto the pavement because the wind was so strong. That was, of course, hilarious. But in these desperate times we need our routines, so here is your weekly dose of appy goodness: Read More >>

These are the Best of the Worst Flappy Bird Rip-Offs

Flappy Bird is dead. May it rest in peace? No -- there's a zillion vulture-like app developers scrabbling around its corpse, looking to make a quick buck by ripping-off an idea that was itself a rip-off of decade-old Flash games. Rip-offception? Read More >>

It's no exaggeration to say that for every good app available, there are at least 5,000 crappy apps out there; the Google Play store for Windows Phone, for instance – none of the apps work, so don't even try. Anyway, here's your weekly list of sensible apps: Read More >>

So I decided to watch Movie 43 a few days ago. I would not recommend it to anybody: that film is absolutely abysmal. With that in mind, the highlight of my weekend has been researching apps, so you should all hopefully appreciate what I have to offer today. Read More >>
