Even today, it s great fun, testing your reflexes at a constant clip as you try to leap between rooftops, into tight office windows, and over fast-falling alien ships.I vividly recall playing it daily for weeks and weeks, frequently delaying my bedtime as one more game before shut-eye ended up being an hour or more of lost sleep.Due to a back-and-forth legal battle with a notorious trademark troll, the game was pulled from the App Store a couple times and even renamed on multiple occasions.See larger imageSurely one of the all-time great iPhone high-score chasers, Orbital $3 challenges you to keep shooting balls into a tight game board—and once each stops bouncing, it expands until it touches something else.And so it goes, as you carefully shoot more and more balls into the limited space while trying to clear the ones already there, all the while ensuring one doesn t bounce the wrong way and end up below the line.See larger imageOnce upon a time, Words With Friends free seemed like the biggest mobile multiplayer game in the world, as the asynchronous turn-based approach was perfect for on-the-go play and fans often juggled several games at once.
I dunno, looks like a game to me...Liyla and the Shadows of War is currently listed on Google Play as an Adventure game, and it includes "challenging decision, events and puzzles awaiting for you sic " according to its online press kit.The rejection didn't go into detail about where Apple draws the line between "Games" and "News," but Apple's App Store Review guidelines have laid out the company's thinking since 2010: "We view Apps different than books or songs, which we do not curate.Naomi Clark points out on Twitter that Israeli Heroes, an Angry Birds clone about sending missiles at foreign-looking cartoon bombers, is currently listed in the iOS App Store under Games.Yet a number of Civil War-themed games were removed from the App Store last year because of imagery related to the Confederate flag Apple later sought to reinstate some of those games and Apps that were using the flag for "educational or historical uses."Retailers and platform holders have the right to arrange their storefronts any way they see fit, of course, and game makers can always take their content to more open platforms.
And, according to Ashish Parmar of mobile app developer Prismetric Technologies, app store downloads will increase 100 percent by 2020 compared to 2015.Fifteen years ago or so, that happened to be a legitimate question.In all fairness, it was 2002.There was no Facebook, Groupon or YouTube... W hile businesses in 2002 didn t depend on websites and the Internet as they do today, those that saw the potential and started building a web presence early benefited the most when consumers finally shifted their behavior to be more digital.What Your Mobile Website Can t DoWhile it s true, according to some reports, that users split their time between mobile apps and mobile browsers nearly a third report that apps provide a better experience , here are some things your mobile website can t do that a mobile app can do with ease:Take a picture of something and share it on social sites.Suzanne Kerns explains, The key is to focus on solving a business problem.
Although it s close to being sold for a pittance, Yahoo isn t dead yet.The company has been busying itself building shiny new apps, including a revamped Mail client for Android and a new esports news reader.Available for iOS from today, Yahoo Esports delivers live tournament broadcast coverage, news, highlights, and league scores for major competitive games from various genres: League of Legends , Dota 2 , Counter-Strike: GO , Heroes of the Storm and Street Fighter V .The app features a card-based interface that s easy to browse, and lets you leave comments on news stories.According to research firm Newzoo, the market is set to grow to $463 million this year and hit $1.1 billion by 2019.But Yahoo will certainly have its work cut out for it: earlier this year, ESPN launched a dedicated esports section on its site to cover League of Legends , Dota 2 and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft .
If you re looking to gain a bit more control over the photos your iPhone captures, you re going to need to look beyond the stock camera app Apple has to offer.To do that, there are plenty of apps to choose from throughout the App Store, but a new one in particular, called MuseCam, offers a couple of unique features that sets it apart from the rest.Designed to be both a capture application, as well as a mobile editing suite, MuseCam brings along a plethora of features to help you get more out of your iPhone s camera than you ever thought possible.If you prefer to tweak the photos yourself, MuseCam has an incredibly robust editing platform that gives you control over everything from basic contrast and exposure adjustments to color-specific curve adjustments.One of the more welcomed features is an unlimited history feature, which will allow you to undo as many edits as you ve applied to the original image.Once you catch on and learn what icons represent specific functions, it gets a lot more intuitive, though.
Square Enix s 16-bit role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 will be playable in English for the first time ever with this week s upcoming launch of a fully featured port for iOS and Android devices.Originally released in 1993 for the Super Nintendo s Japanese counterpart, the Super Famicom, Romancing SaGa 2 is a console-styled RPG in the vein of Square Enix s Final Fantasy series.The 16-bit entries in both franchises share a similar aesthetic, and many feature a turn-based combat system that encourages players to develop strategies that exploit enemy weaknesses.Though Romancing SaGa 2 was never previously available in English, many subsequent series entries have been localized over the years, including SaGa Frontier for the original PlayStation and the PS2-era sequel Unlimited SaGa.While a PS Vita version of Romancing SaGa 2 was recently released in Japan, Square Enix has not announced plans to localize the Vita edition for western audiences.Keeping in line with Square Enix s premium-priced mobile releases, Romancing SaGa 2 will be available for $18 when it hits iOS and Android storefronts later this week.
Digital Trends sat down with Joe Deshotel, the director of communications for Ride Austin, to get insight on how exactly this new venture plans to shake up ride-sharing.It s a unique way to both fill the ride-sharing void in Austin and help charities.And Ride Austin has an extensive plan to help the local community while building public interest.We already know that the University of Texas is interested in our transit data said Deshotel in terms of pickups, drop-off location, peak time, pricing fluctuation―all these things will be open to the public so that the public can engage and inform us as to how we can improve our service.After interviewing hundreds of drivers, the reaction has been very positive said Deshotel.Features like giving drivers someone to call if an issue arises have polled tremendously well, he said.
We leave the office or factory at the end of the work-day, we turn off the computer, we switch off the TV.In fact, statistics show that two people out of three place their mobile devices on the nightstand next to their bed.We selected a group of users who had opted out of receiving push notifications, and showed them a screen immediately after they sent an instant message that explained to them the benefit of push notifications.As recently as six months before we ran the test, a majority of Facebook users were skeptical about push notifications so they opted out of receiving them.And all of a sudden, people realized that push notifications allowed them to know instantly when a friend had posted a photo of them, or sent them a message, or tagged them in a post.Its power was seen as scary and out of the hands of its users.
Fortunately, there are a handful of free apps available in the App Store that can help you cross this bridge.How to Make a Contact Group Using iCloud Cross Platform Step 1: Go to iCloud.com and sign into your iCloud account using your Apple ID and password.Step 3: Next, replace the temporary group name and click anywhere outside of the text box to save it.Step 7: If you accidentally deleted a group or a contact from a group, you can always use iCloud and an earlier iteration of your contact list to to restore it.Step 4: To add or remove people to and from existing groups, click on the group name and select Manage in the upper-right corner.This article was initially published on May 8, 2014, and updated on May 21, 2016, by Kyree Leary to include new instructions for iCloud.
The Google app is about to get much faster on iPhone.Google is introducing its Accelerated Mobile Pages platform to iOS, which works similarly to Facebook s Instant Articles to reduced page sizes so they load instantly off of Search.This applies mainly to news publishers, and AMP d pages will be marked with a lightning bolt next to the articles.Keeping with the speed theme, Google says its reduced load times throughout the app.The updates are rolling out to the iOS app store today.Read next: Lookmark v2 fixes the biggest problem with iTunes on the desktop
If you re looking for music, movies and apps to load up on your iOS device on the Web, it s a pain to purchase them without switching between your browser and iTunes crappy desktop app.The first version of the browser extension, launched last October, allowed you to save App Store apps to a list you could retrieve through the companion app on your iPhone or iPad.The latest release now lets you collate audiobooks, books, movies, music, podcasts and TV shows as well.Visit a page with a link to any iTunes content in Safari or Chrome – whether that s a list of search results, a review or the iTunes preview page – and click the Lookmark extension button.It ll let you save the linked content to your list so you can then purchase or download it through the iOS app.Version 2 also brings a handy new feature for those who pony up for the Plus plan: the ability to monitor iTunes content for price drops, so you can grab tunes and movies on the cheap.
And it comes packed with other goodies, too, including new Google Now cards and keyboard shortcuts for iOS users.AMP is a Google-led effort to reduce webpage overhead with better code and faster servers, which means that webpages load much faster.On average, Google claims these pages load four times faster and use 10 times less data than equivalent non-AMP pages.The updated Google app on iOS will highlight AMP content with a rotating carousel within the Google News section, and denote AMP in search results with a lightning bolt icon next to links.Highlights from top playoff games and major sporting events like the summer Olympics play right within the app.Search for a nearby restaurant or post office, for example, and Google will graph the business s busiest hours, a feature that was previously somewhat hidden.
As we abandon the computers on our desk for the miniature ones in our pockets, we are spending less time on websites themselves and more within apps dedicated to shopping, reading, chatting, or working.Apple, which takes a 30pc cut from app purchases, saw a 35pc increase in revenue from its online App Store last quarter.Today, the app stores are dominated by the two internet giants: at the time of writing, six of the top 10 apps in Apple s marketplace are owned by them.Few must-have apps have been released in the last two or three years – those that have become successes were launched years ago, before the industry became overcrowded.The majority of spending is on in-app purchases within gaming apps: upgrades to freemium games that give players an edge.This is concentrated largely among a few colossal successes such as Supercell and King, the developers of Clash of Clans and Candy Crush Saga respectively.
Twitter has quietly rolled out an exclusive feature for Apple iPhone 6S and 6S Plus users.Until now, 3D Touch functionality on the Twitter app was limited to quick actions on the home screen.With the update installed, users with the latest iPhone models can now bring up 3D Touch peek and pop previews for Twitter profiles and links.By swiping a peek upwards, you ll have access to all the regular options to share a tweet, including direct messaging and the standard iOS extensions.The former have become an important part of the Twitter experience, as the app has increasingly becomes a place for users to access news.A recent study by the Pew Research Center found that the majority of U.S. adults now access news via social media.

The security of JavaScript applications is a well-founded concern.They then tamper with the client-side directly by injecting malicious code.JavaScript is the common denominator to all issues affecting the application s integrity.It s a very dynamic language that allows one to easily add/inject code that interferes with the existing code of the application and make it do something else.Jscrambler, the Web Security startup with a focus on JavaScript Security, claims to have done just that., says Pedro Fortuna, CTO of Jscrambler.
Last September Tim Cook unveiled the fourth-generation Apple TV and told us: The future of television is apps .By using the Apple TV app together with the iOS app, it s possible to build up a collage of photos and videos on your television s display.It s a perfect alternative to the Apple TV s native photo capabilities, because you don t necessarily want every photo you ve ever taken to be displayed for the world to see — and Storehouse manages to strike the right balance between simplicity and interaction.3 Kitchen StoriesMaybe your Apple TV isn t installed in the living room, maybe it s in the kitchen — and if that s the case then the Kitchen Stories app is well worth a download.4 Alto s AdventureThere are plenty of good games out there now for the Apple TV, from the Wii-esque Beat Sports to the multiplayer-enabled Crossy Road.This is no ordinary endless runner or snowboarder : you have to navigate changing weather conditions, rocks, elders, birds, llamas, chasms and more, while the different level challenges and range of power-ups keep the gameplay interesting.

Instead of simply showing a list of the Top Paid, Top Free and Top Grossing apps on the platform, the charts are now hiding listings for those TV apps you already have installed.This was bizarre, the company said, because the app is one of the most popular in the German Apple TV App Store, and had been in the Top 10 almost since its debut.What the company soon realized was that the Apple TV was hiding apps from appearing the Top Charts after they had been installed.It tested this with other apps, and realized this was true across the board – after installation, the next-placed app would move up into it slot.In addition, the change affected those Featured apps on the start page – which again serves to make the App Store feel more personalized to the end user as it won t show you app suggestions for those you ve installed.However, it is interesting because Apple s App Store for iOS has been widely criticized for failing to offer better ways to help users discover apps.
Specifically, customers will be able to customize their order on the app before heading into the restaurant, so they can skip the line upon arrival.Cool stuff, but not exactly enough to make it the most popular iPhone app in America right now, especially considering there are less than 2,000 stores in the country compared to almost 15,000 McDonald s locations .Because the company is offering a free sandwich to anyone who downloads and signs up for the program.In fact, the update has been live since late May, but the app hadn t even broken the top 100 — that is until earlier today, when it unveiled the free sandwich deal.We ve already discussed how almost one in four people abandon mobile apps after just one use.Anyways, while the fast food company enjoys their 15 minutes of App Store fame, you might as well cash in and go get a free sandwich.
