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.

OneNote for iPad can now handle your handwriting

Apple may have been cautious in embracing the stylus, but that doesn't mean iPad apps have held back, with Microsoft adding handwriting support to OneNote today.

Google continues clean-up, pulls Sparrow from App Store

When it comes to email apps for your smartphone or tablet, the list of options is exhaustive. Google recently made a big splash with Inbox, which aims to make your email more contextual to-do than messaging platform. After buying Sparrow, Google did what they typically do in an acquisition setting, and put the skids on incoming updates. With the service languishing of late as an also-ran that proved a reliable standard for modern email apps to gauge themselves against, it’s now been pulled from the App Store for iOs and OS X.

Phorm iPad mini case puts morphing keyboard over screen

Instead of dismissing the keyboard that's already on the screen, this case puts physical bumps - or keys - above the keys on-screen. How utterly simple this solution is for the masses of keyboard-loving citizens around the world.

Apple looks for partnerships to thwart leaks

Apple looks for partnerships to thwart leaks

People get really, really excited about Apple products. So much so, that rumors sometimes dominate the discussion ahead of the actual launch of the device. As awesome as the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are, their launch was a touch anticlimactic, since we’d already seen the two devices leaked to death. According to a new report, we may not get to see as much info ahead of time, as Apple may have asked accessory makers to get their info directly from Apple ahead of making cases or other accessories.
