I Hate Apps

I hate mobile apps. I can be quite a progressive person at times, but I am also quite a stick in the mud on many things. The main thing being the creation and selling of mobile apps. Sure, the mobile market has outpaced desktop usage and the mobile market is a massive thing we should all be a part of, but is it really a nice thing for everyone to make money off? I hate apps in a lot of different ways. I hate the fact that some apps are dumped on a brand new phone, like the Twitter and… [Continue Reading]

The Respawnables – Mobile App Review

Last year I vacationed in Scotland with my family, and it was an awesome trip! I got to see so many amazing sights and take a break from all the routines I’d settled into, but some habits didn’t die easily. I confess I suffered minor withdrawal from not having any Team Fortress 2 to play for three whole weeks, especially when stuck in a hotel room after an exhausting day of hiking the highland countryside. Luckily I found a free-to-play cartoony mobile shooter called The Respawnables, and it scratched that itch until I was back in the states. As that title screen… [Continue Reading]

On the endless repeating of mobile games

After three years, my first generation Moto G phone was dying. I needed to upgrade, and now I have this awesome Honor 5C. Great phone, comes with the most features for its £125 price tag and it means I can finally run some new apps on my phone, with its 8gb onboard memory and up to 128gb SD Card slot, if I need it. Of course, my first stop was looking at games, something I hadn’t had on my phone for a looong time. But as I looked though the Play Store, because I’m an Android fangirl, I realised something.… [Continue Reading]

Pokemon GO

I’m pretty sure I’m not the first person you’ve met who’s recommended you try out Pokemon GO. The mobile app game has taken the entire universe by storm, quickly becoming the most downloaded thing ever, surpassing even the internet and stolen cars. However, in light of recent events, I must taper what would have been a 100% glowing review just a few weeks ago. I first turned the game on August 8th, shortly after it first went live in America. The first Pokemon that greeted me was a Squirtle right in my bedroom! After wasting so many Pokeballs on him… [Continue Reading]

Trade Restrictions

I recently got a new debit card. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence, everyone’s debit and credit cards expire every two to three years, so they need to be replaced. Like Paypal, I’ll have to re-verify my card. Having online banking makes sorting out Paypal easy (although you couldn’t tell, considering some of my clients!) and that’s sorted out nice and fast. Steam is a bit slower. Since it doesn’t have a card verification system like Paypal, you have to wait a couple of days to be able to trade. I can somewhat understand this, it’s a new payment method, something… [Continue Reading]

Finally, TF2 has gone mobile!

Howdy guys! My name is Varun Iyer, and I’d like to share with you guys a mobile app that I specifically designed for TF2 Players. Well, first of all I’d like to say that this was a project I started recently because I noticed that TF2 wasn’t going mobile. Specifically, features that many people use, such as trading, viewing their backpack, and price-lists for buying and selling items wasn’t available on mobile devices. People had to rely on their, bulky, fat (no offense) laptops to simply know whether they got the widowmaker they were trading for. Well, I can tell… [Continue Reading]
