PSA: PokeMon apps for iPhone and Android are fake

This week the fact that a illegitimate clone of the game PokeMon Yellow (the special Pikachu edition, that is) is busting up the charts in the iTunes App Store charts for most popular download. While the game might download decently, you should note that the vast majority of people who have fallen for the promise of a PokeMon mobile game have found the game to not work in the slightest beyond the start screen. The same is true of Android with any app you download at the moment with the PokeMon name on it: Nintendo has not yet brought the game to the market, so whatever you're downloading - it's not the real deal.

Dash Race for iPhone Review

Dash Race for iPhone Review

The game Dash Race is just about the most unique racing game you're going to find on any platform - and I say that having played my fair share. What you'll do in this iPhone-based pencil and grid racing game is draw lines from one square to the next, each player taking turns to see who can best the other in their mathematically calculated set of turns and straightaways. This game is derived from a game that you may have played while wasting time between classes in high school - in this case you won't have to do any of the calculating yourself (unless of course you want to.)

Pinterest for iPhone Review

Pinterest for iPhone Review

As the sharing environment and website known as Pinterest gain heavy steam in the art and design community around the world, it's only natural that the developers behind this already massively successful platform would create a mobile app. It's the iPhone 4S we're taking a look at Pinterest's version 1.4.2 app with, and it's the iPhone that this app is made for.

Chin up, Apple users, the iPhone version of the Google+ app has just been updated, and the Instant Upload feature is in full effect.

Path iPhone update live, “fixes” privacy issue

Today there's been a bit of controversy surrounding the Path app for iPhone and how it gains access to your contacts without asking you permission to do so. While its customary for such requests to go down with most major apps and is required by every single app in, for example, the Android Marketplace, it's only today become an issue for Path developers. Per the public's request though, and not a moment too soon, Path's Dave Morin has let loose an apology as well as an update to the app live in the iTunes App Store now.
