PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Tapper World Tour HD

Tapper World Tour HD 5

Way back in 1983, Midway Games released a game called Tapper, or Root Beer Tapper, that had a speedy young bartender racing from one table to another, passing out refreshing mugs of frosty suds.

At this year’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC), Apple blew developers out of the water with the announcement that the company would be moving away from the decades-long programming language it currently uses. With iOS 8, coders will throw Objective-C out the window in exchange for the easier-to-use Swift programming language. What does that mean for the rest of us?
