That's why a food, recipe and cooking application like Recipe Kitchen is such a useful thing to have around. It's a beautiful looking app for iOS that offers over 100,000 searchable and easy to find recipes.

Run and save your souls to fight another day

When we think about the name Valkyrie there are a few things that come to mind. The first, for me, is that scene in Francis Ford Coppola's movie Apocalypse Now where the helicopters roll in to the sound of Wagner's classical masterpiece Ride Of The Valkyries. Then there is the Tom Cruise movie where he plays the German officer attempting to assassinate Hitler during WWII. This Valkyrie, however,  is very different to either of those two. In this heart-stopping first person running game your mission is to take the souls of fallen warriors back to Valhalla - their final resting place. ...  More

Fight your way to freedom with this fast action game

Ultimate Stick Fighter is what is known in the business as a 'casual' fighting game. That basically means that, rather than a structured multi level game in an arena, this one sees you fight like a modern day Errol Flynn as you wander the rooms. You are one of those stick figures with a sword or a stick in your hand and you get to kill as many of the bad guys as you can swing an arm at. There is a storyline to this fast paced game for iOS and Android, of course. It revolves around the violent Dragon crime family and their attempts to take over the city. You are the only hope to save the ...  More

Guess Who your friends are when a favorite board game goes digital

Do people still play real board games, I wonder. One thing's for sure, it's getting harder and harder to find a true toy store that sells these sort of games. The problem is, I guess, that with so many games now being transformed into games that can be played digitally there is a perception that if they ain't on your smartphone or tablet then they aren't worth playing. The introduction of the incredibly user-friendly iPad a few years back and the consequent rise of the tablet revolutionized the market even more and opened up all these games to a new technology geared audience.
