Renaissance Blood THD Review

Renaissance Blood THD Review

This week the folks at NVIDIA have teamed up with BRIDEA and NCsoft to bring a twisted first person shooter by the name of Renaissance Blood THD for Android devices working with Tegra 3 quad-core processors. This game sets you up with a crossbow, a spiked mace, and what's essentially a steampunk machine gun. You've got infinite arrows, a limited amount of bullets, a strong arm, and hall after hall of gladiators, mummies, machine/man hybrid beasts that want nothing more than to cut you down and devour your flesh.

SlashGear Android App of the Week: Gifboom

SlashGear Android App of the Week: Gifboom

This weeks' Android App of the Week, Gifboom, is one of a burgeoning family of camera-focused programs that have suddenly come into prominence upon the sale of Instagram to Facebook. It has a simple camera interface, photographs a series of images through your smartphone or tablet's main camera, and combines them as frames into a single GIF, an animated image made to be presented exclusively on the web. GIF images were amongst the first forms of high (or low, however you want to view it) art on the internet, well before Flash and the onset of Web 2.0 and beyond. Has it reached a new level of greatness here as an undeniably simple-to-create beast via mobile app?

Google Drive mini Review for Desktop

Google Drive mini Review for Desktop

The reason why Google Drive will succeed is its instant ties with the rest of Google's heavily branded set of services. That's all I really should have to say in this review, as all Google's web-based applications end up powering through with the brand power of Google (with a few choice examples of apps going the way of the appasaurus rex.) When it was announced that Google would be hosting a cloud-based data storage service, it wasn't because everyone expected they'd somehow be able to store data better than anyone else that there was a lot of excitement, it was because it was Google!

WinZip for iOS Review

WinZip for iOS Review

It's time to make the opening of ZIP files easy, finally, on the the iOS platform for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This application takes files that have been compressed with the .ZIP file extension and opens them up for you - but more than that, it's able to show you what's inside without you having to run the files in other applications. In the example we've got here, a simple image is sent in a .ZIP file through email, opened in the basic Mail app, and the image is previewed inside WinZip.

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. What you'll find is that not only do you have most of the abilities you've got in the web browser version of this app at your disposal, the fact that you've got Pinterest in your hand rather than on your computer screen makes it more entertaining than ever before - and that's saying something, Pinterest is addicting!

QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

QuickShot with Dropbox for iPhone Review

The app you're about to see a very brief review of requires little introduction and only a small explanation as it's only got a couple of functions, and it does them well. This app is made to do three things: capture video, capture photos, and upload media to Dropbox. This app does this uploading function in a unique manner as we've seen no application work with Dropbox in the background as effectively or in as perfectly simple a manner as we're seeing here - it just works!
