Jolly Jam: Angry Birds maker makes its own Candy Crush

Jolly Jam: Angry Birds maker makes its own Candy Crush

Rovio is about to try its luck with a Candy Crush-LIKE game, I suppose we should say. Not like it's the same game - and not like there isn't a precedent for creating games like this, like Bejeweled turning into a game about candy, or anything like that. And forbid it that there ever be a game like Bejeweled that takes what Dr. Mario was - or what Tetris was - and evolves it into something entirely new, with a smidgen of the old game in its bones.

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Inbox by Gmail updated for iPad

Google has updated their iOS build of Inbox by Gmail to work for the Apple iPad. This update brings a couple of changes to the way the app is organized on the tablet vs the ever-so-slightly smaller iPhone. This app continues to be an "invite only" situation, but emailing inbox (at) google (dot) com generally results in an invitation sent rather rapidly. This app is also (obviously) out for Android and was originally released to both platforms essentially at the same time.

Samsung Galaxy S6 tipped to ship with Microsoft apps

Samsung Galaxy S6 tipped to ship with Microsoft apps

While Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphone are often seen as one of the flagship Android devices, the manufacturer's default apps that come with the TouchWiz interface leave a lot to be desired. Mostly the ability to delete them. The apps do little more than take up storage space and slow the operating system down; in other words, bloatware. However, that trend may finally change with the S6, as an insider report from SamMobile is saying Samsung will drop its own apps in favor of shipping the smartphone with Microsoft offerings.

Nike+ Fuel app now connects with iOS Health, band no longer needed

A significant update was released yesterday for the Nike+ Fuel app for iOS. Most notably, the app now features HealthKit integration, meaning data from Nike's FuelBand wearable can be shared with the iPhone's new Health app. But also important is that a FuelBand is no longer required at all, as users can instead rely on the health and movement tracking sensors built-in to the iPhone 6 and 5S. Since the app itself remains free, there's now no purchase required to use Nike's movement tracker.

Your iOS apps are about to get better. Changes made today by Apple are good news for Developers, as the size of apps that can be fronted to the App Store have doubled.

Additionally, Apple has rolled out a change to TestFlight that could prove useful for Developers, especially if they have apps that need some dedicated attention.

Snapchat update causing app to chew through data

Snapchat update causing app to chew through data

Snapchat is often a litany of updates and issues, and that pattern has repeated itself with this latest update. If you've recently updated the app, and have also noticed your data usage has skyrocketed, the two might be related, at least if reports from other users prove to be a trend. Following the update released in late January, users have started noticing that Snapchat is using quite a bit of background data, enough to deplete some users' monthly data allotment in a week or two.

Know the odds of your plane crashing with ‘Am I Going Down?’

'Am I Going Down?' is an iOS app that tell you the chances of your plane crashing after you enter your flight details. The premise might sound a little stupid, or even like some kind of joke in poor taste, but it is in fact a serious attempt to ease the very real fears that some people have of flying. After being given the various parameters, the app uses math based on real data to show you the figures of how unlikely it is that your flight is going to crash.
