ColorStrokes Turns Your Photos Into Art — iPad App Review

I love photography apps that allow you to highlight a specific area to color while leaving the rest of the image in black-and-white. It turns an otherwise insignificant image into a stunning and professional-looking piece of art that you could hang on a wall.

May The Force Be With You – Angry Birds Star Wars HD – iPad App Review

I’m about to admit something that may cause you to question everything you’ve ever known about me. I don’t like Angry Birds. There, I said it. I feel liberated. It is a dark secret to keep when you are an app reviewer, but I don’t like Angry Birds. That is the first thing people ask me about when I tell them what I do for a living.

Physics-based games like that had already been around for a while, and frankly, I was bored with the genre by the time those red birds came around.
