DailyApp: Iron Man 3: The Official Game (Android, iOS): Fix this, Jarvis!

‘Tis truly written in the annals of modern entertainment – “every blockbuster film should be accompanied by a game bearing the same title.” The latest in the Iron Man film series is no exception – even as Tony Stark descended, armor and all, on the silver screen, so did his counterpart on Android and iOS devices. And he did so […]

Daily App: Cut The Rope: Time Travel (iOS, Android) – Om Nom, Twice Over!

When it comes to titles that made the handset a viable gaming device, Cut The Rope enjoys the kind of status that Angry Birds does. The game has won over millions of users with its physics-bases simplicity and yes, the sheer adorability of its protagonist, the frog-like Om Nom. For those who know the game not (alas, alas for them), […]

     
 
 

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: A Value-for-Money Device

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: A Value-for-Money Device

In the face of flagships flaunting drool-inducing specs and mind-boggling features, it’s easy to overlook devices at the lower end of the smartphone spectrum. Just as gargantuan signboards and full-page newspaper advertisements peddle handsets costing upwards of Rs 35k ($650), it’s the budget and mid-range devices that actually sell in larger numbers and deliver value for money. And thankfully, specs […]

Daily App: Facebook Home (Android): Are You Moving in?

You cannot help but feel a tad sorry for Facebook Home. It has been almost a couple of weeks since Mark Zuckerberg took the wraps off it, and by and large the app has been put through the wringer (including by Yours Truly in a preview piece on this site). It has been hammered for being too Facebook-oriented, invasive, commercial, […]

     
 
 

HTC One Review: the Best One Yet

HTC One Review: the Best One Yet

Raise your hands if you think the HTC Legend was one of the most well-designed smartphones ever. HTC then followed that up with design masterpieces such as the HTC One S and the HTC One V – all featuring sexy metal unibody casings that stood out from the rest of the pack.

Daily App: Stick Cricket (Android, iOS): The Appy Spirit of T20 Cricket

Daily App: Stick Cricket (Android, iOS): The Appy Spirit of T20 Cricket

The sport might be a religion in the Indian subcontinent, but when it comes to mobile representation, the Gentleman’s Game (Cricket, of course) has been poorly served. Unlike tennis, golf, football and basketball, those wanting to experience a feel of leather on willow on their devices do not have a plethora of options to choose from. Fortunately, among the few […]

Is LibreOffice 4.0 Better than Microsoft Office 2013?

In 2010, Open Office, an open-source freeware alternative to Microsoft Office, got into some conflict with one of its partners at that time – Oracle. People who were behind the development of Open Office couldn’t stand this monopoly. So they decided to part their ways, and formed a non-profit called The Document Foundation. Later they released their Office suite named […]
