App Review: Telegram

Chatting with friends online has started to become a bit of a pain. There are so many platforms, many of which are device exclusive. If they work with Android, they won’t work with iOS. If they work on mobile, they won’t work on the desktop. I’ve always ended up feeding Facebook all


Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Sometime last year it was announced that a Futurama mobile game was on the way.  Being a huge fan of Futurama, I was very excited about this. While I had never personally played The Simpsons: Tapped Out, I had seen it in action, and was very interested in playing a Futurama game


Apple, Photoshop, and Focusing on the Wrong Thing

I’m over most of the big product announcements companies do anymore. I don’t need to watch a company parade it’s new thing out for two hours when I can read about what they’re releasing in a fraction of that time. I don’t care for the spectacle, just the specs. So when Apple


App Review: Brain Trainers

Any kind of gaming is good for your brain. Sudoku, Candy Crush, the latest AAA blockbuster, they’re all based in problem solving and working through them helps keep your brain active (to varying degrees of course). Lately though, there’s been a new subset of games that are designed to maximize this benefit


Why I Switched to Google Music

When I got my Windows Phone in September, I tried several streaming music services to see which one would work best for me. At the time, I had decided to stick with Spotify. It had the library. It had the apps. And I liked the social aspect. But then I broke my


5 on Friday: Five Ways to Track Your Media

I have problems tracking all the things I want to read, play, and watch. Which seems like it shouldn’t be that big of a problem, until it’s Saturday night and my husband and I are playing the verbal Ping-Pong of “no, what do you want to watch.” It’s extra frustrating when you


App Review: Home Routines

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to keep the new house nice and clean. I really only stick with goals if I can track them. If I don’t track them, I get distracted and end up spending all of my goal time playing Xbox. So I went in search of an


App Review: Unfilth Your Habitat

Note: In the iTunes app store this app is called “Unfilth Your Habitat” but in app it’s actually “Unf*ck Your Habitat.” So language warning if you decide to download it. For this review, I’ll be referring to the app as “Unfilth Your Habitat.” I really don’t do well the whole cleaning, organizing, keeping the house nice

Essential Windows Phone 8 Apps

Windows Phone gets dinged a lot because there are “no apps.” It’s not really a fair assessment. While there are fewer apps, and not everything has an official client, there are plenty of apps to get things done. The number of apps in the store isn’t what is important. It’s if they
