Star Wars

It’s no secret that my kids and I love playing Lego games on my iPad and so I was excited to see a brand new Lego arcade shooter game featuring Star Wars Microfighters.

Dark

I am a weather app junkie. Perhaps it is because I live in Colorado and the weather is unpredictable and can change in an instant. There have been days when it was snowing in the morning, sunny by lunch, and raining as I went to sleep. I have tried to use a lot of different apps  but they either are beautiful and too simple or full of useful data and too cluttered.

Evomail+ iPad Update Addresses User Complaints and Adds New iOS7 Features

Evomail+

It’s not often that I take a new email client app seriously because there are already so many out there and very few bring enough new to the table to make it worth switching. Evomail+ is certainly worth a closer look today because they took a mediocre app and listened to their users to add the most requested features. Let’s see if it is enough to make it a contender.

Paintball Pro

If you can’t make it out to compete in a paintball tournament this weekend, then perhaps Paintball Pro from Very Nice Studio could be on your list of alternative activities.
