Apple introduced iOS 10 this week during WWDC. While Apple suggested most people wait for the public beta when it is available in July, we decided to ignore that entirely and downloaded the developer preview. As you might expect, iOS 10 is currently full of glitches and lagginess, and some features just straight up…
Apple has a strained history with video games, as the company regulates what is and isn’t a “game.” It’s why Apple initially rejected Liyla And The Shadows of War, about a young Palestinian girl in Gaza, and said it “was not appropriate for the games category.” Apple has now reversed that decision.
PC gaming isn’t the only thing that has some rules that all developers should abide by. Mobile gaming has plenty of gripes with people as well, and so I believe it is time some commandments shall be written.

You’ve got yourself an iPhone and you want to play some games on it. You might not want to just plunge into the App Store—it’s a jungle, full of deadly spiders, wild animals, and bad games. Here, let us help you.
Every year, the inevitable release of Apple’s new iPhone, usually sometime in September, is always a big event. Equally as inevitable are the rash of boring reviews stating the same thing over and over. “The best iPhone yet,” “Like the old iPhone but better!” So on and so on.
The stunningly enduring iPhone sensation Plague Inc. may be the video game with the highest body count in the long history of the medium. I’m trying to think of another game that made me feel inadequate for laying waste to a mere 1.75 billion people.
Star Wars Uprising, the new Diablo clone sitting atop the iTunes charts, could more appropriately be titled Star Wars: Uninspiring. The game is competent. That’s about it.
My go-to mobile game for time-filling fun used to be Drop 7. Then it was Threes. These days it’s Sage Solitaire, a new riff on solitaire from the ever-interesting developer Zach Gage. I’m making pairs, straights and flushes, often while listening to a podcast. I’m hooked!
Five bucks spent and an hour in, I’m having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It’s turn-based. It’s full of tomb raiding. How about I show you? You’ll see some early levels—and a comparison to the very cool precursor Hitman GO—in my 13-minute…
Final Fantasy VII, a video game about an angry man with mommy issues, will come to iPhone and iPad tonight with the next Apple Store update, publisher Square Enix announced today.
Fascinating video games come out of nowhere these days. Take Prune, a new $4 iOS game about growing and pruning trees. I never heard of it until it popped up on the app store yesterday. I played a bit of it for you in the video above. It’s good!
“What’s the best smartphone?” It’s a question I hear at least once or twice a month.
Imagine all the things that our phones get to see. I mean, they’re pretty much with us every step of the way. It can be a camera for concerts, a music player for parties, a distraction on dates, the only light source for the lonely nights at home, and everything in between.
