Halo: Spartan Strike launches on multiple platforms

Microsoft Studios is once again expanding its Halo franchise beyond genres and beyond platforms. It has just announced the launch of Halo: Spartan Strike, actually its second top-down shooter game that eschews the FPS conventions of the main titles. And also unlike the main titles, which are mostly confined to Xbox consoles, Spartan Strike is available for a whole lot more platforms and devices, including the iPad, the iPhone, Windows 8, Steam, and even Windows Phone. Curiously, there is still no sign of an Android port.

Halo sort of released for iPhone and iPad

Halo sort of released for iPhone and iPad

Two different Halo games have been released by Microsoft to the iOS device ecosystem this week. The first is Halo: Spartan Assault, a top-down action battle sort of game - the other is... another game with nearly the same title and almost identical gameplay. That'll be Halo: Spartan Strike. Both games include 30 levels of gameplay and have the same price point. Note - if you will - that these aren't the same sort of game that you'll be playing in first person on your Xbox One - they're a completely different sort of Halo.

This week the folks at MergeVR have created a VR headset that allows you to insert the iPhone 6 Plus to experience virtual reality.

This headset is set to be available in the United States first this summer, complete with its own app launcher.

Revamped YouTube app makes an appearance on iPhone

YouTube may be in the process of redesigning its app for iOS. Multiple users claim that a new version of the app was briefly available for iPhones last year. Although it has since changed back to its familiar design, one clever user took some screenshots to capture the design elements before it disappeared. YouTube is rumored to be redesigning the app for Android, along with a new player for Internet. New apps developed using Material Design have been cropping up on iOS and Android, so it makes sense that YouTube is toying with a new design layout.

iPhone spreads WiFi calling in iOS 8.3 to more carriers

iPhone spreads WiFi calling in iOS 8.3 to more carriers

Apple's release of iOS 8.3 yesterday may have initially wowed with a whole bunch of new emojis, but it's the spread of WiFi calling that could have longer-term appeal for iPhone users. Until now only supported on T-Mobile USA, the functionality means that even when you have no carrier network connection, an iPhone on WiFi will still be able to make voice calls. That is, assuming you're with one of the carriers for whom iOS 8.3 activated the tech this week.

Lines outside Apple Stores may soon be a thing of the past

Lines outside Apple Stores may soon be a thing of the past

Lines outside of Apple Stores are a strange occurrence. Waiting outside for a phone or computer seems so — well, silly. It started with the first iPhone, and hasn’t stopped. While Apple Stores don’t see overnight lines every time they bring something new to the in-store tables, people do line up. Apple Store chief Angela Ahrendts wants that to stop, apparently.
