Bloxels: you are the digital dungeon master

Designers create a game in which physical game boards are used to construct digital arenas. This is Bloxels. You are the creator, the constructor, the digital DM in the physical realm with a collection of blocks. Once you've constructed an arena, you capture it with a tablet - an iPad in all the demos. Inside the tablet you'll customize how your arena looks and acts. Once you've designed everything, your arena comes to life. You can play in this arena yourself or challenge a friend to beat it.

Connect the Moto 360 to iOS, needs an Android phone

Not a fan of the Apple Watch? Good thing there is almost a dozen Android Wear smartwatches now, not to mention those not using Android Wear at all. But what if you have an iPhone or an iPad?

According to the report, this new display tech may also be outfit with Sapphire glass, reducing thickness and weight of the new iPad.

The Sims’ Will Wright launches THRED to let you tell stories

If you're any sort of gamer, or at least familiar with some of the Sims titles like, well, The Sims or SimCity, then you'll probably know that the name "Will Wright" isn't one you'd associate with social networking. And yet that is exactly what the acclaimed game designer has ventured into in his latest creation. But while THRED might seem like an Instagram for comics or a Medium for smartphones, the network and the app speaks to the heart of what Wright has been trying to do in his games: letting people tell their own stories.

Pixelmator, the darling of iPad photo editing, is coming to iPhone

There are plenty of good photo editing apps for iPhone, that much is certain. People love VSCO Cam, and Snapseed is still going strong. A new favorite, Fotograf, has taken over my photo editing on the small screen. There are still those times when a simple editor just won’t cut it; you need more than filters. Pixelmator, a favorite of ours for iPad, will soon become available for iPhone as well. To celebrate, the Pixelmator crew is discounting the app by 50%, bringing the price down to $4.99.

Now that the Apple Watch is out of the way, the tech world's attention is now being turned to what could be Apple's most contentious product, if the iPhone 6's larger screen wasn't contentious enough.

A source familiar with the matter claims that the big iPad will include not just a Force Touch screen and NFC but also a Bluetooth stylus.

Alleged iPad ‘Pro’ cases shown off in video (it’s so thin!)

With tablet sales slumping, rumors of an ‘iPad Pro’ still circulate. The 12-inch tablet is widely speculated on, but we’ve still not seen anything close to a finished product. There have been ‘dummy’ models photographed, and cases surreptitiously snapped, but nothing suggesting anyone has a working iPad Pro anywhere on Earth (except maybe Cupertino). In the latest turn of events, we’re getting another look at cases for this iPad Pro. The difference? this time it’s a video, not sketchy pics from who-knows-where.

Apple, IBM deal will bring iPads to Japan’s elderly

Apple and IBM have entered an agreement with Japan Post to bring iPads to the elderly. The move is a technological step for Japan Post’s ‘Watch’ service, which leverages postal employees to check in on the elderly now and then. Watch currently costs 1,000 Yen/month ($8.50 or so). Japan Post is government-owned, and operates roughly 24,000 post offices in addition to a large bank. Japan Post is also one of the nation’s largest insurers, and hopes iPads will both scale their Watch service as well as make it easier on everyone involved.

Tidal did NOT just jack up their price

Earlier today it appeared that the iOS version of Tidal's music streaming app had pushed a price increase on users. In fact, this price increase isn't new. Also in fact - it isn't universal. It's only through Apple's mobile products. With iTunes, according to Tidal, "Apple's policy is to charge TIDAL subscribers a 30% fee on your monthly subscription, for the life of your subscription, if you activate your subscription through the TIDAL app on your iPhone that you have just downloaded."
