App of the day: Yahoo! Wireless Festival 2013 (iOS / Android / Blackberry)

Heading to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park for the Yahoo! Wireless Festival this coming weekend? Then don’t leave home without the official festival app, complete with listings, a planner, map, news, social media integration and even push notifications which, we hope, will lift the lid on those “TBA” special guests announcements. Yahoo! Wireless Festival 2013 Format iOS | Android | Blackberry…

App of the day: Mushroom Wars Mini review (iPhone)

Furious fungi battle it out in Mushroom Wars Mini on a miniature scale that’s mighty difficult to master. If strategy games are your thing then Mushroom Wars on the iPhone – or the iPad if you want it a little less mini – is a well thought out attack and defend strategy game that’s hard to take your eyes off…

App of the day: Tiny Thief review (Android)

If you were one of those Daily Mail sorts, you’d have a fit about the current “morality” of both gaming and TV. On TV, for example, you’ve got serial killers as heroes, motorcycle outlaws as role models and drug dealers as father figures. Now, in its latest, Rovio wants us to control a Tiny Thief as he goes about his…

App of the day: Flight Finder review (iPhone)

Until someone invents teleportation, or Elon Musk works out how to build those fancy pneumatic tubes he’s decided will be the future of global travel, we’re stuck using planes. Although it’s not really aircraft that are the problem, it’s airports. These are places that are as close an approximation as it’s possible to get to hell on earth. Some of…

App of the day: Blinkbox review (Android)

When it comes to watching TV or movies on your tablet, you’re not short of choices these days. There are thebig players, like Netflix, offering a subscription-based system. Then you’ve got Lovefilm (on some platforms), as well as a range of catch-up TV services, Sky Go, Now TV and more. Buying content is easy too: all the major players have…

App of the day: City Cat review (iPhone)

The never-ending dash through New York, Paris and Moscow that is City Cat feels like an explosion of Sonic the Hedgehog meets Nyan Cat in a parallel Jetpack Joyride world. Colourful, engaging and tricky to stay in play during the later stages, City Cat has had us hooked for days on end. City Cat Format iOS | Android Price £Free…

App of the day: Rdio review (Android)

Have you listened to the radio recently? It’s dreadful. The reason it’s dreadful is that it’s filled with annoying adverts that go on forever, and is packed with mindless idiots droning on as if their voices are the only ones that matter. So what options do we have? Well, thankfully, in the era of music streaming, you can pretty much…

App of the day: Sprint Driver review (iPhone)

Take one bike, the open road and a bunch of hazardous trucks, lane-swerving police cars and, er, trails of collectable coins, pop it onto a gyro-controlled Apple device and – boom – we have Sprint Driver. The tilt-to-control mechanism game is not so much about racing, it’s about surviving. Sprint Driver Format iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad Price £Free Where…

APP OF THE DAY: Artfinder review (iPhone)

Normally we wouldn’t really consider an app like Artfinder for App of the Day, simply because it involves so much shopping. Artfinder gets itself a free pass simply because it is so well designed and offers such a great way to discover and learn about new art, even if you don’t buy any of it. Promising weekly art updates, video…
