Pocket App Review

Pocket, which was formerly known as “Read It Later”, is an app that allows you to save links you find across the internet and store them conveniently for you to view at your leisure. Pocket is great if you’re searching through Twitter on your phone and come across an interesting article, or at work and find a site you would like to dive into more when you get home, or simply just don’t have the time to read something right now, but would like to later. All of your links are stored and synced across Pocket which you can access through the app on your browser or ios and android devices. Pocket can even strip the content down to its bare essential for a more focused reading experience or display the full article in all its glory. With its clean design, third-party support, and outstanding performance Pocket is the best solution to save content for future viewing.

Steam now on Android and iOS Devices

Valve has released a beta of their Steam platform for Android and iOS Devices. Users will be able to connect and chat with their gaming friends, as well as browse the Steam store. I personally haven’t gotten into the Beta version, but I look forward to its full release. What I find more exciting is the possibility of Valve and Steam entering the mobile gaming platform. I find both the Android Market and iOS App store riddled with terrible paper flicking games and over all just un-organized sorting. Valve has been in the game distribution game for sometime now and would be a beaming light for Mobile Game Developers if they pursued that avenue. I guess time will tell!

Minecraft Pocket Edition – Update in Near Future!

I am a HUGE fan of Minecraft. So when a version came out for iOS and Android Devices I was pretty stoked! I quickly downloaded it for my Droid X, which froze and crashed until it finally started to run smoothly only to find that the Pocket Edition was only a Creative Mode with no monsters, resources, and worse yet… NO TNT to blow up my creations. Well I got over it and started building little monuments to the Minecraft Gods praying for an update. Our prayers have been answered.

According to Mojang there is an update with a more survival like mode, some animals, and new blocks. They hope to have the update in the hands of Apple and Androids App Stores by February 8th to be approved. There will be no crafting just yet, but it is on the road map.

I know I impatiently await the release!
