Halo: Spartan Strike Review—Halo Comes To iOS

Wow. There are a lot of photo editing, filtering and manipulating apps available for iOS. Did we really need another one? Well, ya.

If There Were A Dream Keyboard, This Would Be It

Logitech Case [+] review: the last iPhone case you’ll ever need?

Fact: iPhones look and feel infinitely cooler without a cases. Fact: iPhones are too expensive for most people to just replace on a whim once broken.

In fact, the default screen looks nothing like what I’ve come to expect from weather apps, which I really like. Hyperlocal weather forecasts This is a hyperlocal app. […]

Obviously, this is aimed at making more money by selling more iPhones in places where paying American-style prices for a smartphone just isn’t feasible for a large chunk of the population. I have a […]
