OK Golf Review: Golf with a Touch of Zen…and Myst

I will admit it right off – golf is not my favorite sport (football and tennis are – cricket of late having been baseball-ized, but THAT is another story). I have played it a few times but I found it a tad on the slow side, almost like billiards or snooker in a large area – the idea being to […]

 
     
 
 

Angry Birds Blast Review: The Birds as Balloon Poppers

Angry Birds Blast Review: The Birds as Balloon Poppers

They say that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. And well, there is certainly nothing wrong with taking a great concept and adding your own touches to it. So when I heard that Rovio’s new Angry Birds game, Angry Birds Blast, was going to be all about matching similarly colored objects, I was genuinely curious about what spin […]

     
 
 

Super Mario Run Review: Mario? Yes! Run? Yes! Super? No!

Super Mario Run Review: Mario? Yes! Run? Yes! Super? No!

Hype is a dangerous thing. It builds up expectations, which more often than not are very difficult to deliver on. So Nintendo was clearly dancing on the edge of a particularly sharp digital sword when it made a right royal fuss about its iconic Mario character coming to smartphones (well, on iOS ones initially at least) on December 15. Yes, […]

     
 
 

Why I Moved to Simplenote and Probably You Should Too

Why I Moved to Simplenote and Probably You Should Too

As I was jotting down notes for a story on Google Keep, I noticed something peculiar – a major part of the file was missing. It was outrageous as the research behind that took a significant amount of time and watching it just disappear was utterly disappointing. I made some searches and ask a bunch of my colleagues to see […]

Photo Scanning the Google App Way… Well, it Just Works!

Google surprised a few people when it announced the Photo Scan app a few days ago. The app is basically designed to well, take better pictures of pictures. In simple English, you use the app to take digital copies of your printed photographs (the ones that came on that wonderful material called “Paper”, remember?) and store them. Preferably on Google […]

Google’s Sprayscape app is a Quirky Mishmash of VR and Pictures

Google has been trying to bring the VR to the masses with its DayDream project and in the meanwhile, a group of talented developers who associate themselves with the Android Experiments has come up with a great new app called Sprayscape. The Android Experiments wing was created a year ago to showcase the great stuff developers are coming up for […]

ASAP Launcher Brings a Simpler Homescreen to Android

Third party launchers are one of the most fundamental aspects of Android’s ever growing customization landscape. Year after year, developers have tried to fabricate a unique and smarter experience for users by embedding a ton of personalization tools.

Prisma: The Best App to Convert Photos into Art

Prisma: The Best App to Convert Photos into Art

Image editing apps have a special place in the hearts of pretty much anyone who has hit the shutter button on a phone’s camera. After all, not all of us (Yours Truly included) are great photographers, but with a bit of appy fizz and a few touches here and there one can make even a relatively ordinary picture look different.

Notif Log Maintains an Interactive History of Your Notifications on Android

Despite going through several iterations, handling multiple notifications on Android at the same time or while you’re busy is still a challenging job. There is a complicated native process to check previous notifications’ history, although, features like postponing or retrieving dismissed alerts, is not possible. Fortunately, on Android, there’s a straightforward app available now that maintains a functional log of […]
