Have I told you yet that I play Dungeons & Dragons? I have a group of friends that introduced me to the game back in 2002 and we’ve managed to keep the group together for 12 years through moves, marriages, kids, and everything else that might normally destroy a good gaming group.

Knights of Pen & Paper is a satirical role-playing game that lets you play a tabletop adventure, complete with dungeon master and unhealthy snacks. In this version, you want the cat to jump on the table. You’ll get a power buff…(...)

David. brings minimalist platformer gaming to iOS

David. 3

When I think of platformer games, the last thing I am thinking about is minimalism. However, it appears that there is a new trend in mobile games and it comes in the form of cubes and blocks. Last week, we told you about Sometimes You Die, which does not follow any traditional platform game rules.

David. is a similar game that doesn’t look like it’s supposed to, but still employs game mechanics you are familiar with. The game’s developer describes it as a mix between Limbo, Shadow of the Colossus, and Angry Birds…(...)

All.Notes review: the Notes app that iOS should have been

All.Notes 2

Apple’s Notes app isn’t all that bad. It is easy to access and simple to use. It gets the job done. However, it is sort of the “unnoticed stepchild” of iOS apps. It doesn’t do anything particularly special.

All.Notes makes up for what the Notes app lacks. It comes with lots of bells and whistles and even syncs with a compatible Mac app. Apple is going to be jealous when they find out…(...)

Instagram and Facebook stepping up fight against spammers

Instagram deactivates spam and fake accounts

Facebook-owned Instagram has responded to complaints from users who have noticed a sharp increase in the number of fake accounts and followers that are spamming them. If you fire up Instagram’s free iPhone app and hit the Following button, you’ll see a message about changes in followers.

“We’ve removed deactivated and spam accounts,” the message reads. “Your list of followers and people you follow may have changed” as a result.

This is a welcomed albeit way overdue change.

I’ve been a frequent victim of spammers on Instagram. Some of these guys are really smart in how they get on your Following list with the ultimate goal of populating your feed with spammy posts often disguised as so-called viral images and videos…(...)
