Apple’s free app of the week: Super Sharp

July 14, 2016 by macjeff

Apple on Thursday updated its App of the Week promotion with the game Super Sharp. This means that for the next 7 days you’ll be able to pick up the popular puzzler from hit developer 1Button SARL, for both iPhone and iPad, for free—a solid savings of $2.

Super Sharp is the epitome of the pick-up-and-play puzzle genre. There are no characters or qwerty storylines. Players simply use their fingers to cut through platforms, ropes and obstacles and they attempt to make their way through 120 physics-based stages.

From the App Store Editors’ Notes:

There’s just something incredibly elegant about Super Sharp’s minimalist puzzles. With a single swipe, you can cut through platforms, ropes, and obstacles, sending the pieces careening offscreen. Causing them to fall in just the right manner is the only way to complete each of the crisp, physics-based stages. As in 1Button’s Mr Jump, the later levels require some serious trial and error, presenting you with uncuttable pendulums, rolling spheres, and gravity-defying platforms. But the smart gameplay makes every puzzle a delight.

And here’s a video of the game in action:


Super Sharp is available in the App Store for free.

Get Out and Explore Your City with Strol for iOS

July 12, 2016 by macjeff

During the summertime it’s great to go outside for a walk, but you can easily get bored with the same route. What if there were an easy way to discover cool things about your city while going on a walk?

Pokémon Go isn’t the only app that wants you to go outside.

Strol is an awesome app that not only auto-generates a walking route based on a few factors, but it also tells you cool info about landmarks you might otherwise miss.

Concept and Functionality:

Personally I love going for walks in the morning and the evening. However, it can be tricky to figure out the best way to go if you’re facing time constraints.

Strol, by Strol LLC, not only tells you about areas of your city, but it tells you the best route to go in a given period of time.

I’ve never come across an app like Strol and I definitely think it’s a breath of fresh air.

Even if you’re not really interested in landmarks and/or you don’t even live in a city, the app is incredibly useful. Not only that, but you’ll actually be encouraged to walk in order to discover new places.

When it comes to usability, Strol has been extremely well designed and so isn’t hard to figure out.

You’ll be able to pick the app up and use it within minutes of taking your first walk. This is great news for iPhone users who don’t want to tinker with an app and would rather open it and begin using it immediately.

Strol iPhone App

Strol is incredibly feature-rich, and the best way to take advantage of all the features that are offered is to use the app when you’re located in a new city.

Even though it’s designed to be used everywhere, you’ll definitely get more out of the app in terms of learning about new landmarks.

Another cool thing about Strol is that it features achievements and the ability to keep a running history of all of your journeys.

The only drawback to this is that it seems you have to connect a social media account with the app in order to take advantage of these features.

According to the developer, you’re supposed to “Use social networks to invite friends to a scenic stroll with you or share a great city walk you had so your friends can enjoy it too.”

I agree with this to a certain point, but I don’t think that users who aren’t involved with social networking should be locked out of features like achievements and history.


Strol is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases that I could find, and the app is not supported by ads.

Whether you’re exploring a new city or you want to find a new walking route in your neighborhood, Strol is certainly worth a try.

Strolstrol.jpg requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
