A few weeks ago we mentioned the arrival of a new photo app by the developers of Wood Camera—Bright Mango—called Viewmatic. Wood Camera was basically Instagram on steroids, offering a more in depth photo editing experience, just without the social networking aspect (as in followers and a feed). So when I heard that Viewmatic was another camera app with filters, I wasn’t really sure want to expect, at first I thought, why make another app that’s virtually the same? However, I was wrong in my assumption, Viewmatic isn’t...

There are a ton of photo apps in Apple’s App Store, they all seem to offer the same thing, square images with filters and the ability to post to Facebook. So what do developers need to do in order to differentiate their apps from the heard? How about the ability to take pictures differently, uniquely and more creatively. That’s exactly what developer Easy Tiger did with their App Split Pic. The Brooklyn based developer created an app that is simple to use, yet provides powerful, engaging results. Have you ever wanted to put...

    If you’re Android user and have been secretly jealous of iPhone owners because they have one of, if not the best, Twitter clients on any mobile platform, then we have some good news. iPhone users have enjoyed Tweetbot for years, a simply to use, yet extremely well crafted and designed Twitter client, while Android users have had to deal with either the official Twitter app or half-baked apps like Tweetcaster, Slices, Ubersocial and a few others. Last year, a clean and simple app called Tweetlanes debuted for Android,...

This month—at least for me—has become the “review big phones” month. Just last week, I reviewed the new HTC DROID DNA for Verizon and now I’ve gotten my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note II. This true “phablet” is a beast, not only from the outside, but on the inside too. Like I did for my review of the DROID DNA and probably most devices going forward, I’m going to review this phone based on my experience and not just provide a rundown list of where stuff is located and bullet points on specs. If...

Let me preface this review by saying that I’ve owned, not reviewed, my fair share of Android devices. From the HTC EVO 4G (my first experience with Android), to my previous device, the Galaxy S III and a slew of other devices in between. For whatever, no matter what Android device I’d get, I’d always find myself going back to my iPhone. Sometimes I would miss the way my iPhone felt in my hand and other times I miss certain apps, but regardless of the reason, I always felt bad when I switched back from Android, it was...

When I heard that Chillingo—makers of hit games like Cut the Rope, Catapult King and Mad Coaster—had teamed up with Mattel to developed a new game for iOS (iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad) based on the 80′s cartoon (and action figure) He-Man, I couldn’t wait to try it out. If you were a child of the 80′s—and most likely a boy—your life was probably consumed by one of, if not all, three of these cartoons/toys; GI Joes, Transformers and He-Man. He-Man was such a big part of my childhood, in fact, I remember dressing up my...

Since the first iPad was released back in 2010, rumors circulated that Apple would release a smaller version, but it never materialized, despite leaks and suppliers talking about it, until now. Nearly three years after the first iPad, Apple finally got around to releasing a new, smaller version of their popular, genre-defining tablet and they call it the iPad Mini. Does it live up to the hype, is it everything we had hoped for and will it steal the thunder from other tablets like Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and Google’s Nexus 7?...

The iPhone 5, by Apple, is considered by many to be the biggest product launch in the history of consumer electronics. The iPhone has been hyped for what feels like forever, even prior to the iPhone 4S, when many people thought it [the 4S] would feature all of the 5′s design cues. After months of leaks, many of which can be blamed for taking the “surprise”...

This morning, Spotify has released information about their widely popular mobile application. Previously, you needed to have a premium membership in order for you to be able to use Spotifys mobile app but they just released information that it is now free to use on Android. This is a great move by Spotify because having to pay a monthly fee to use the app was a...

In the past, most of our reviews have focused on mobile devices, but since we try to cover everything mobile, we thought we’d cover a product that goes hand-and-hand with mobile devices, headphones. With phones, MP3 players and now tablets allowing us to have all our favorite content on the go, sometimes listening to that content without a headset can be annoying...
