Are there really that many iPad users with fond memories of old typewriters? Apparently so. Hanx Writer is sitting at the top of the App Store after its first week.

  5. New App Wants to Be Tinder But For Jobs

    "M seeking HR administrator. Nothing serious, just a casual employment status. No fatties."

    Call me old-fashioned, but I'm not a fan of Tinder. Like Grindr and Blendr before it, the app seems pretty shallow and not at all the sort of thing you'd use to find someone you'd want to spend a good chunk of your life with. But you know what else also takes up a good chunk of your life? Jobs. And of course there's an app for that too, now.

  8. You Can Now Search For Businesses in Yelp With Emoji

    This makes me feel sad face.

    So let's say that you need some coffee, but you don't know where to look for it, and you've also completely forgotten what it's called. I don't know, maybe you can't read or you've been in a traffic accident or something. Well don't worry, my confused friend! Now you don't have to know what it's called, just what it looks like.

  9. The People Who Invented Threes Are Very Sad You Like 2048 More

    You could say they're not hAPPy.

    You've probably heard of the addictive game 2048, which has recently taken the Internet by storm and is ruining everyone's productivity. You've probably also heard of 1024, the game upon which 2048 is based. But have you heard of Threes, the game that 1024 is based on? Probably not, and Three's developers kind of hate that.

  10. Review: Live Your Robot Apocalypse Fantasies While Getting in Shape With Battlesuit Runner App

    Run with me if you want to live.

    I'm pretty unmotivated when it comes to exercise, but I would like to be ready for an alien invasion or the rise of the machines. That's why I love the Battlesuit Runner app. It simulates a sci-fi robot/alien attack story to gamify your workout. It's more fun to run when you think you're going to get torn apart by robots if you don't.
