Phone Clean for Mac — Free Up Space on iOS

I recently looked at my iPhone’s usage statistics and noticed Spotify was using 1.1 GB. For an app that is supposed to be about streaming music—I don’t download anything locally—that seemed like a lot. I’ve run into this situation before. … (More)

The bttn

The bttn is an interesting little gizmo that reminds me of a Griffin PowerMate but without the volume-dial component. What looks like a simple colored button (hence the name) is actually a web-connected device capable of executing interesting commands, similar … (More)

Editorial 1.1 for iOS

Editorial, the powerful text editor for iOS, updated to version 1.1 today. It might as well be called 2.0 though, given the sheer number of changes, overhauls, and improvements that went into it. On top of having a redesigned interface … (More)

Litely for iOS

A lot of iOS photo-editing apps offer only the most heavy-handed filters and presets, which can easily turn your beautiful shots into tacky monstrosities. Not so with the new Litely app for iPhone and iPad. Designed and developed by Cole … (More)

‘Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic’ for iOS

In the gaming world, the classic action-RPG Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic hardly needs an introduction, even a decade after its original release on the first Xbox. If you somehow haven’t played KotOR before, or if you’ve already … (More)
