Gemini Rue is a pixellated futuristic science fiction adventure game that is described as having an atmosphere similar to “Blade Runner” and “Beneath a Steel Sky.” This isn’t your typical iOS casual fare – Gemini Rue is a detailed game that will require hours of gameplay to complete.
It is a story heavy game that focuses on Azriel Odin, an ex-assassin who has arrived on the dark and dreary planet Barracus and Delta-Six, a man who wakes up in the hospital with no memory. Odin and Delta-Six both face problems of morality, making tough choices that ultimately bring them together to seek redemption.
According to a recent report from data research group Chitika, Apple’s share of the Web browsing market has dropped 10 percent in the past six months [Via VentureBeat] . This may seem like bad news for Apple, but the same research firm also determined that iPad usage has increased for the first time since December. Additionally, NPD Group is reporting that Apple dominates the home digital-video sector. Since the iPad maker just announced record revenue for iTunes, it is no surprise that media consumers prefer Apple to any other.
Chitika’s report shows that, while Apple shows an increase in iPad usage, it is losing share as the market continues to be flooded with other types of tablets. The slowdown occurred from December to January, when Android tablet sales were at their height thanks to the Christmas shopping season.
Apple has finally announced the dates for its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) for June 10 – 14 at San Francisco’s Moscone West. Tickets will go on sale Thursday, April 25 for about $1,600. If you plan on going, be sure you are registered as a developer because if you aren’t registered, you aren’t allowed to attend.
After covering ReFleece last February PadGadget was so excited by this innovative product that we co-sponsored a giveaway for our readers. Founded by husband and wife team Sam Palmer and Jennifer Feller, ReFleece takes recycled bottles and old Patagonia jackets and turns them into stylish cases for the iPad, as well as a selections of other e-readers and tablets.
After founding ReFleece in 2012, Mr. Palmer and Ms. Feller have expanded, launching a Kickstarter project that lets a consumer send in an old, beat-up well-loved fleece. ReFleece works its magic, then sends the backer an iPad sleeve or other accessory made from his own item. Forget having your child’s baby shoes bronzed, why not turn that baby bunting you’ve saved for a decade into a case for an iPad or iPad mini?

This week, we have a project for the artist in your life. The Nomad Brush for iPad is a very popular item. It allows users to simulate the effects of a paintbrush on apps like SketchBook Pro and ArtStudio. We found a DIY iPad brush over at Instructables that can be made using cheap paintbrushes and conductive thread.

At PadGadget, we track how the iPad changes the ways people work and live. Thanks to the growth of point-of-sale apps including Square and GoPayment, the iPad has changed retailers ideas about what a cash register looks like. I witnessed this change first hand last summer in Shelburne, VT, at Folino’s, an up-start wood-fired pizza joint that didn’t have a traditional cash register, just an iPad and Square to take credit card payments. It was the first time I signed a receipt with my finger, and I doubt it will be my last.
