Triple Trouble HD Combines Match-Three and Physics-Based Gaming For Double The Fun

Triple Trouble HD is fun for everyone. Casual game players around the globe will love this physics-based match-three combo game. Not only do you have to line up the Triple and fling him to the correct spot, but you also have to get three of the same colored fuzz balls right next to each other to score.

To play the game, players touch the Triple that is sitting on the leaf and swipe in the direction they want the little guy to go. The speed and angle of the swipe determine where he will land. To pass a level, players get three of the same colored Triples in one area. When at least three match up, they will clear from the board. More points are awarded for matching more than three at a time, but that is very hard to achieve.

Word-2-Text – iPad App Review

As useful and fun as the iPad can be, one of the enduring challenges sometimes is getting it to place nice with others. Opening Microsoft Word documents for example–the standard word processing program for many people — can be a real pain.

The new Word-2-Text app aims to make that process a little bit easier. Word-2-Text is a robust document converter that allows you to download Microsoft Word documents (including DOCX files) and convert them into plain text. The process is pretty simple–you can import files from your Dropbox account, iCloud or via iTunes file sharing. Or, use the app to open files received elsewhere–i.e., through your e-mail program. Once the file is opened, you can then export it to another program such as Evernote or Pages. You can also e-mail the text (either within-in the e-mail or as an attachment), copy it to your clipboard, send it to a text editor or save it.

On The Wind – iPad Game Review

Sometimes, you just want to sit down with a cup of coffee and relax while playing a game on your iPad. Most games can’t really be described as “relaxing,” but On The Wind comes pretty close with its subtle, calming sound effects and attractive, flowing graphics. However, once the pace picks up, the game is anything but relaxing.

The game starts with a quick tutorial. Players tap and hold the screen and all of the leaves on a nearby tree are drawn to the touch. The level begins to auto scroll and players must collect leaves as they pass by. As they are collected, musical notes play in unison. The floating gathering of foliage will drift away, so it is important to collect more. If there are no more floating leaves, the game ends.
