TMNT, Brandr, Proud, and more apps to check out this weekend

January 09, 2016 by macjeff

Earlier this week, gadget makers blew our minds with new products at the Consumer Electronics Show that will hopefully come out sometime in 2016. We also finally found out how much Oculus Rift costs and when we will get our hands on it.

It was a bigger week for hardware than it was for apps. Although, if you were lucky, you downloaded Vidyo before it was pulled from the App Store. As the weekend rolls by, if you are looking for apps and games that are still available, check out our list below.

TMNT – Portal Power

For a decade or so, it seemed like the popularity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had all but died. However, the reptilian superheroes have managed to rekindle interest in younger generations of fans. The comic book stars now have a game from Nickelodeon on iOS. Not entirely unlike the original arcade classic, in this game, players must fight waves of bad guys as they run from street to street and rooftop to rooftop. You can fight with all four Turtles, switching between them while in battle. The new version has plenty of gameplay features for the more refined 21st century palate. This game is available for $5.99.


Our access to content on the Internet has made it possible for everyone to create their own graphic designs without needing special help from professionals for the simplest of projects. This app provides dozens of overlays and stock photos to help you create beautiful advertisements. You can upload you company logo for a more personalized look. For a monthly subscription fee, you will have access to analytics and insights about how customers react to your designs and whether your brand is working on not. This app is available for free.

Jetpack Fighter

Taking a joyride on a jetpack is probably lots of fun. But, you know what would be even more fun? Beating the snot out of people with a jetpack. In this game, players fly through level after level of narrow pathways, killin’ all the baddies. Wielding a sword and a suit that lets you fly, bash your way through dozens of angry robots. Collect coins and other loot along the way and use it to unlock new fighters, gear, and more. The faster you get through a level, the higher your score, so practice a speeding attack to become the best. This game is available for free.


One common thing we all try to do in the New Year is set goals and resolutions to make ourselves better people. Getting organized and completing tasks are common goals. With this app, you can rethink how you organize and complete tasks. It has dozens of helpful features for getting things done. Instead of creating a basic list of things to do today, why not separate those things by what time of day you want to have them done by? You can defer tasks if you can put them off until later, set reminders to take stress-relieving breaks, and pushes tasks back if you just need more time. This app is available for $4.99.


Not everyone needs to resize groups of photos all at once, but those of us that do, kind of hate the process, especially on the iPhone. This app makes it possible to resize batches of photos so you don’t have to adjust them one at a time. You can manually adjust the size or use common presets. You can specify photo DPI and video bitrate. You can even reformat files and resize images by stretching, ratio clipping and ratio filling. It makes it possible for you to resize an entire album in a photo library and it doesn’t matter what orientation they are. This app is available for free.


Since Blizzard launched Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, battle card games on iOS have grown in popularity. This game requires the actions of a card game, but instead of a simple tabletop, players watch the action of their hands unfold as they play. Grab a card from your hand and drag it to a friend or foe to perform the action. The screen shows the video game style animation as if you were playing a dungeon crawl. You can recruit heroes, compete against your buddy in PvP mode, and evolve your cards into something more powerful. This game is available for free.

CloudMagic for Mac

The company that makes the minimalist mail app of the same name is back with a version for the Mac. You can sign up with multiple mail accounts and color code them to keep track when viewing the unified inbox. You’ll get push notifications when you receive new mail and you can use Handoff to switch between the iOS and Mac versions. It features all the basic email actions, like reply, delete, and mark as read. Plus, the desktop version has keyboard shortcuts so you can archive a message simply by pressing “A.” This app is available for $19.99.

eMail Widget 2, Song of Pan, TIPIT and more apps to check out this weekend

January 02, 2016 by macjeff

It is officially 2016. Hopefully, last year treated you well, or at least didn’t cause you too much pain. With a new year, comes a new hope of things to come, and new apps and games to fill your time.

This week, thanks to the holidays, the App Store was a little dry. So, instead of focusing on brand new titles, we are presenting a general list of apps and games that we just think are cool.

1 Second Everyday

For the next 365 days, make a goal to grab one second of video footage. Capture one moment that sums up that day, even if it is just a POV shot of your desk at work. Then, using this app, stitch together your entire year in a slideshow that only lasts six minutes but encompasses everything you did for the past year. It’s like a Vine-sized video diary. You can make multiple timeline diaries that cover such things as what you ate for dinner every day, or which pair of sock you wore. Set up a notification to remind you to grab a one-second shot. You can also convert your one-second videos into animated GIFs. This app is available for free.

Nom Nom Paleo

At the beginning of each New Year, I try to set some sort of food-based resolution. Whether it’s cutting out fast food, quitting sugar, or going heavy on the meat-based meals, there is always a way to improve your health by reducing the amount of useless calories you eat. This app is a comprehensive recipe book by the team that created the blog of the same name. In it, you’ll find hundreds of simple Paleo-based recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It features high-resolution photos for each step of the cooking process and tips and tricks for making things easier. If you are new to the Paleo diet, check out the 30-day sample meal plan to get you started. This app is available for $5.99.

eMail Widget 2

We told you about eMail Widget back in July, when it first launched. The app lets you access and deal with your emails right from Notification Center. You can archive, star, mark as read, tag as spam, and delete emails without needing to unlock your iPhone. The app was updated earlier this month with support for Outlook, Hotmail, iCloud, Office 365, and GMX. You can also set up multiple accounts with up to three widgets that will display in Notification Center on your device. This app is available for $0.99.


This app has been described as “the Shazam for movie trailers,” which is somewhat fitting. While a movie trailer is playing, open the app and tap the microphone and it will “listen” to the audio to tell you what is playing. This isn’t for finding out what the trailer is. It is highly unlikely you won’t already know that. It is for adding movies to your list of things to see. For example, while the trailer for Batman V Superman is playing, tap the microphone and a poster for the movie will appear. Add it to your “QU” and it will also automatically be added to your calendar with a reminder, so you won’t forget that it opens on March 25. This app is available for free.

Song of Pan

In this fun, simple game, players take control of a satyr on a mission to bring back Zeus’ wandering sheep. When you play your pan flute, the sheep follow. However, your music only lasts for so long. The goal is to figure out how to reach the sheep while playing your tunes and get them to follow you (without falling to their doom down some bottomless pit) to the holding tent. As you progress through the game, the gods of Olympus will try to mess you up with heavy rainfall, tornadoes, and fires. But, if you succeed, your father Zeus will reward you greatly. This game is available for free.


I love to shoot video of family outings, vacations, and other important events in my life. However, I don’t like to spend a lot of time editing them and making them into any sort of project that I could present to others. So, most of the time, no one sees my clips. This app makes it much easier to create fun videos without having to spend a lot of time on them. You can add auto-tracking captions and stickers, add some flare with video filters, and add the perfect soundtrack. If you don’t have your own videos to mess with, you can grab one from the TIPIT community. This app is available for free.

Tilt: Quill’s Quandry

In this fun little puzzle adventure, players control an adorable porcupine as he rolls his way through complex labyrinths to find the exit. Tilt your iPhone to get the little guy moving. Quill lives on the cutest pirate ship in the world and keeps getting trapped behind walls of crates. You can help him find a way out by tilting your iPhone even further to get the crates to move out of the way. If you make a mistake, you may accidentally trap poor Quill in an even worse situation. This game is available for $1.99.
