Red Herring: A terrific little game from 7 Little Words creator

Last night, my daughters and I spent several hours working our way through the first levels of Red Herring (free, with in-app purchases), a twistedly difficult new game from the creator of 7 Little Words and Moxie. The game presents you with 16 phrases at a time, which you categorize into 3...

BroApp coming to iOS amidst firestorm of opinion

BroApp, a US$1.99 Android app that sends automated texts to friends, partners, and family is heading soon to iOS. The app acts on your behalf as a kind of techno-Cyrano. It messages your recipient with a fortune cookie of attention. "Thinking of you." "Can't wait to see you." "Good morning! I hope...

We gave Anchorman 2: Scotchy Scotch Toss a month to see if a movie tie-in game could grow on you.

Movie tie-ins are highly profitable, but notoriously terrible. Gamers want a chance to play with their favorite characters, but developers often rush a product to meet a film or TV show's release date. Despite being burned time and time again, consumers keep buying these games. Given the history of...

Talking to Siri: TSFW (Totally Safe For Work)

Sometimes you ask Siri the worst things and it responds with unexpectedly sweet results. For example, ask it to "Talk dirty to me." Go on, we'll wait. Isn't that adorable? However, our very favorite safe-for-work result comes from the distinctly unsafe-for-work request to "Show me pictures of...

This is the most important Mavericks keyboard shortcut you'll discover all day

Mavericks' new Control-Command-Space bar shortcut came up once again during conversation in the TUAW chat room this morning. Once again, I was surprised that this cool little trick isn't universally known. As a public service announcement, we'd like to continue to spread the word about this...

Oh Siri, you tease: the iBooks plug edition

So what happens when you ask Siri to find you a bookstore? You may get some awesome snark ("Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.") Or, Siri might "suggest" another way for you to grab a book to read. Yes, Apple is now pushing iBooks as one of its...

Dollar Store Accessories: USB car charger

For a dollar, this USB car charger is quite adorable. Rated at 1 amp and surprisingly well built, I could find nothing to fault with this unit except that I bought it at the Dollar Store. Let me back up for a second here. Almost none of the other US$1 accessories I have purchased to date have an...

Night Vision Camcorder offers low-light iOS video capture, sleazy marketing

For US$1.99, the Night Vision Camcorder app does exactly what it says on the label. It enhances sensors so you can better see and record low-light sources. The marketing for this app, which was developed in Russia, is frankly appalling. It shows numerous young "hotties" in a low-light club...
