IMDb Android app update brings major redesign, trailers, global showtimes, and more

The official IMDb app for Android just got a big update, and it does not disappoint. Along with a complete design-overhaul, the app has been stuffed full of IMDb goodness to the point that it's now more enjoyable to use than the actual website itself. The redesign is very sleek. They've basically taken the original palette and layout, expanded it all, and turned up the sexy. As nice as it...

NBA Jam for iPhone is just as fun and addictive as the classic SNES version

If you're new to the classic two-on-two basketball game, prepare to waste a whole lot of time, and get some ice ready for your sore thumbs. NBA Jam for iPhone is a faithful translation of NBA Jam Tournament Edition, featuring at least three...

Top 5 free BlackBerry Messenger-style cross-platform chat apps

Ever since early in the evolution of the BlackBerry, RIM's BlackBerry Messenger has been the envy of all other smartphone users.

Dead Space for iOS review: console-quality survival horror on the iPhone and iPad

Dead Space is one of EA's best and biggest original IPs, and now to mark the release of Dead Space 2, the sci-fi survival horror franchise has made the leap to the portable screen. Dead Space for iOS charts an exclusive-to-the-App-Store prelude to the frightfest that is Dead Space 2. But does the visceral horror, suspense and thrilling action translate to the mobile screen? I took a look at the...

Ramps becomes addictive iPhone game

With console-quality iPhone games coming at you left and right these days, it's easy to forget that games like Rolando were the stars of the show a couple of years ago. Now, in the same vein as Rolando, one of our favorite time wasters has made the jump to iOS -- introducing Ramps for iPhone. The premise, like many other popular time waster-style iOS titles is simple: get the rolling smiley...

Twitter for Mac is a slick, fast new update to Tweetie

The long awaited Tweetie 2 for Mac has finally launched, with a new name: it's now Twitter for Mac. When Twitter bought Tweetie, they announced that developer Loren Brichter would be turning the iPhone version into an official Twitter for iPhone, but the Mac version of Tweetie wasn't getting Twitter branding -- and effective became a hobby for Loren. Twitter has an official blog post...

Double Exposure Pro photo blending app for iPhone

The iPhone has packed a pretty good camera ever since the iPhone 3GS was launched, but it was the iPhone 4's five-megapixel camera that really brought out the photographer in iOS. Now that we know we can take decent pictures on an iPhone, photo modification apps have really come into their own, and Double Exposure Pro is no exception. Essentially allowing you to combine two photos into one,...

DLS goes nose-on with NoseDial for iPhone

Earlier in the week we told you about the app that aims to solve the iPhone user's winter dilemma. Do you a) take off your gloves and let you hands freeze, but be able to use your iPhone, or b) attempt to use Voice Control with the only button available? Well now with NoseDial, you have a third option: use your nose. As your nose is normally the only thing that's left exposed with any sort of...

Trillian for Android review -- not quite worth your money yet

Earlier this week, Trillian, one of the oldest third-party IM client developers, released its Android app. I've always found Trillian a bit gimicky -- kind of like a 'Super Mega' Windows Live Messenger, with more bells and whistles than I really need, and a bloated, hard-to-navigate UI as a result. Trillian for Android, I'm sad to say, is no better. Ultimately, it's functional but it feels like...

The iPad's large screen is a treat for food lovers, allowing for larger photos of venues and their dishes. It's as if Yelp and Foodspotting -- the mobile food photo app -- had a gorgeous, iPad-sized baby. According to Yelp, "It's a whole frigging new...

About.me is a direct competitor of Flavors.me; both services try to help you create a personal landing page, hooked up to your "social media presence" on other sites (Facebook, Flickr, et al). About.me left public beta a few days ago, and I decided to give it the video treatment today. I've put together an extensive review covering most of its features from a first-time user perspective. It's...
