McDonald’s turns food tray into a music production app

Food trays at fast food restaurants are designed to do one thing: get your food to a table in an easy and quick manner. But as our digital age progresses, it's time for these plastic trays to start doing more. Last year we saw KFC turn them into Bluetooth keyboards so you can keep your greasy fingers off your phone's screen.

Exploding Kittens app Review : exactly what you wanted

Exploding Kittens app Review : exactly what you wanted

The app we're looking at today is the app-ification of one of the most successful Kickstarters of all time.

This game was made to be super simple and work with the attention spans of you and I - super short though those are. This game is exceedingly entertaining and makes for a brisk Sunday afternoon battle between you and yours. The app is pretty much the perfect translation of that to your smartphone.

Nintendo’s Miitomo app is getting Splatoon-themed items

That's about to change, as next week will see the release of new costume items based on Splatoon, the popular paint-shooting Wii U game.

Samsung protects your kids’ eyes with Safety Screen app

Samsung protects your kids’ eyes with Safety Screen app

When I was a kid, I wanted to sit as close as I could to the TV, especially while playing video games. I think that I equated being closer to the screen to being better at the game. Of course, I also had a bad habit of leaning to the left or right, when I wanted my character to quickly move the same direction, which didn't help, either. When my parents would catch me sitting to close to the screen, they would always tell me to move back. But what about now, when kids are holding their tablets too close to their face?
