Apps that claim to be able to give you full parental control over a mobile device are becoming ever more popular on Android and iOS. The problem is, most of them don’t do the job to a large enough extent, and get bogged down by offering just a few features instead of the raft of […]

contradiction

This one is a bit of a corker. The first all live action video game murder mystery, this could have been awful, and is taking so many more risks than either a TV murder mystery or a traditional video game, as there were so many things that could have gone wrong. It needed to play […]

There are already quite a few solutions to the problem of getting your phone to act as a flashlight/torch, either on the Google Play store or even built-in to many flavours of Android.

While¬†that may be disappointing for some, for everyone else there is a fun and interesting American Football based game that can provide entertainment in small doses. Now, regular […]

Droid Unlatch, available for Android through the Google Play Store, is an excellent solution to a problem you may not realise you had.

squack cover

Squack, available for iPhone and iPad though the Apple iTunes App Store, is an interesting new way to explore your world. Squack has far more of a competitive nature than the likes of Geocaching, although this shouldn’t put you off the idea, as the competitive side is mild and really can be ignored if you […]
