Futureful is an Exciting New Smart Content Discovery App For iPad

futurefulFutureful is a new app from a Finnish startup, and it is backed by Skype co-founder Janus Friis. The app works a lot like StumbleUpon, as a content discovery tool, but it is smarter and aims to merge machine learning with human understanding.

As a result, Futureful functions quite a bit differently than other content discovery apps that you might have used. It has an ultra simple interface, where it is impossible to type in a URL. This simple interface also makes it confusing to use at first, so make sure to spend a decent amount of time with it after you download it to learn just how it works.

Riven for iPad Presents an Old School Puzzle Solving Challenge – iPad Game Review

rivenMyst and its sequel Riven are the games that inspired an entire genre of adventure puzzle titles. First released in 1997, Riven is set after Myst chronologically, and asks players to help Atrus free his wife from Gehn, his father. Unlike Myst, Riven takes place in one world during the Age of Riven.

When I fired the app I was immediately transported back to the day when I opened Riven on my computer for the first time so many years ago. The game is the same as it was then, even down to the graphics. If you’ve played Riven before, you will want to revisit it again on the iPad, and if you haven’t, this is a great opportunity to play an iconic game.
