More celebrity photos than you can poke a stick at on your iOS device

Despite the fact that magazines sell a fraction of the amount that they used to during their heyday, there's one mag category that still seems to be holding its own. The celebrity magazines like People, OK, Entertainment Weekly, Star and Who are the mags that are saving the local newspaper shops from going to the dogs. And what's the first page that people turn to when they buy a new edition? The celebrity photos, of course! Kim and Kanye, Taylor Swift, Brad and Angelina, Nicki Minaj, The Bieb, Stephen Curry and LeBron, Coldplay on stage and thousands of others. Well, now there's an easier ...  More

Great ideas for corporate travel and group adventures with everything under one roof

If you've ever been the poor sucker who has been put in charge of planning a group trip or organizing corporate travel, I can only have sympathy for you because it can be a hugely time consuming operation. If you're lucky, you have a great travel agent who knows all the deals, all the places to visit and where to get the best tickets for events. Unfortunately, finding one with that much knowledge is not the easiest thing. It doesn't end there either. Even after the trip is over, there are still all the bits and bobs to take care of and, if anything goes wrong, there only going to be one ...  More

A relaxed new word game to improved your English language skills

In a recent study, it was found that an astonishing 1.2 billion people are part of the worldwide gaming community with around 700 million playing games online. To cater for these game-aholics, there are a whole heap of wannabe games released every week for your mobile or tablet. Most of them are little more than addictive time wasters that while away a few minutes on your commute to and from work or keep you amused as you lay on the couch in the evening. Sadly, most don't teach you a great deal apart from maybe increasing your reaction time in a pressure situation. But word games are ...  More

Keep up with all your favorite sports in one easy-to-read stream

Ahh yes...sports fans! Are there any crazier and more passionate individuals than the folks who follow sport. I think it was Ted Turner who once said that sport was like a war but without the killing and he wasn't far wrong there. A friend of mine in England once told me that, no matter where you are in the world, if you can hold an informed conversation about sport with someone you've only just met, you'll have a friend for life. Fans will scour the Internet to find any information they can about their favorite sporting team but it's pretty much scattered all over the place. What's really ...  More

Classic old school gameplay for modern devices

I went to visit some friends down the coast recently and it occurred to me that the choice of home entertainment goes down big time as soon as one gets away from the city. We played a few games of cards before someone pulled out a peg solitaire game and that was it for the rest of the evening. I'd forgotten how wonderfully addictive and entertaining it was. I guess there was a little bit of synchronicity involved when I came across this entertaining puzzle game for iOS that bears some basic similarities. Paradot is a minimalistic retro style action puzzle game that literally offers a new ...  More

Easier and a heck of a lot more fun than just rolling dice

Not being much of a game playing kind of guy, I winced a little bit when I first looked at this dice roller app. I mean, unless you love dice games, what is there to say about them? They roll, they score, that's it! Why do you need an app for that? You may just as well use real dice, right? Well, how wrong can one be? CritDice really is a whole lot of fun and already I'd much rather use this Android app to roll dice than the real thing. This free game for smartphones and tablets makes rolling the dice easier, makes calculating scores a breeze and, with the sound bites added, turns ...  More

An easy way to stich two photos together without using Photoshop

We love a decent photo-editing app here at the FeedMyApp offices. There was a time there when they were coming through in droves. I've got so many on my smartphone that it's not funny. However, the one I've been hoping will turn up has been an app that will stitch two photographs together in some form so that you can seamlessly place one image next to another. Up until now, those actions could really only be achieved in Photoshop or something rather similar. But now we have an easy-to-use Android photo editing app called Photocon where you can take a photo, swipe your finger across the ...  More

Positive advice from your guardian angels

I think it was Steve Martin who said in the Grand Canyon movie, "The answer to all of life's problems are in the movies." There are a lot of movies out there so I'm sure that's true in general but I don't think any movie has offered up a remedy for world peace just yet. I think we all agree that the big problems can be very difficult to solve but smaller ones might have a chance...given the right advice. Ask The Guides: Success is an entertaining, interactive oracle reading app for iOS that allows the user to ask any question that is posing a problem. Once you have asked the oracle your ...  More

The first online and in-person game to use GIFs to get your message across

It's not easy to come up with an original game concept these days. YIX is a new game for iOS that actually manages to come up with something a little bit different to keep us amused. Well, to be honest, you can't really call this entertaining and very social game truly original because it's origins lie in games like Cards Against Humanity and Apples To Apples but, with it's use of animated GIFs rather than cards, it offers a unique take on a fun and often hilarious piece of entertainment that you can play with family and friends.   The creation and consumption of GIFs has risen to ...  More

Try to find the treasure in the mystery house by solving clues and riddles

It must have been my growing up in a household that was stacked with Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes novels that led to my love of a genuinely good  'whodunnit' mystery. I used to love trying to figure out who the dastardly murderer was or who stole the jewels from some stately mansion. Then along came the Cluedo board game and it went to another level. The thought of Mr Mustard bludgeoning someone to death with a hammer in the kitchen still haunts me. Things changed inexorably though when fully interactive games like Myst and, later on, Syberia were unleashed onto the world. They ...  More
