‘Unroll Me’ Rolls Into the App Store, Free for a Limited Time

Unroll me 3

Now that Flappy Bird has flown the coop, casual gamers are looking for something as equally simple, but equally challenging. Plenty of clones have popped into the App Store to fill the void, but for some, the sting of the fresh wound hurts too much to replace one bird with another.

Unroll me is a simple, but challenging puzzle game that will give you something to do while waiting to catch the bus, but might be so addicting that you will waste your life playing it instead of feeding the kids.

The game is a lot like a sliding tile puzzle. You know, the one where there is a grid of tiles with one missing and your goal is to turn it into a picture. This game has a grid of tiles with a few holes. However, there are also some tiles that can be rotated and some that can’t move at all.

The goal is to get the ball from the starting tile to the ending tile by creating a path between the two. To do that, you must slide tiles around so that each one connects to another and forms the path. The path must also, finally connect to the end tile before the ball will roll.

The game is free to download. Each level is locked, except the first. You can unlock all levels for $2.99, but you don’t have to. You can just continue playing puzzles in order.

If you get stuck, you can use a hint. This will solve the current puzzle for you. The game includes three free hints. After that, you can buy additional hints for $0.99 each or five for $3.99. The hints are costly, so be sure to use them sparingly.

The game is also advertisement supported. However, any purchase you make will automatically remove the ads.

Grab yourself a copy of Unroll Me and cleanse your soul of the sadness of losing Flappy Bird. Download it in the App Store today.

Acoustic Research Releases New iPad and iPhone Accessory Lineup Designed for Her

AR for Her 3

Back in November, we told you about Acoustic Research’s new line of iPad accessories in the “For Her” series. In November, AR announced that the line up would include a tufted design in black or white, a pink and white polka dot design or a leopard print look. Today, the company has unveiled the entire spring 2014 collection, with a few new designs, plus a few new accessories.

Acoustic Research’s new “AR For Her” line of tech accessories comes in a variety of cleverly disguised forms. Not only can you accessorize your outfit with a matching purse-like speaker, but you can also keep your iPad charged on the go with a lipstick-shaped backup battery. Give your desk a little color with the mini speaker, and make your iPad pop with colorful charging cables.

This ladies’ line of tech accessories does more than just look fashionable. Women of all backgrounds can look stunning with their geeky gadgets. “Research predicts that millennial women will account for almost 15 percent of all U.S. retail sales by the year 2020, with consumer electronics being a top industry for growth,” said David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. “We created AR for her because we see the great impact millennial women will have on the American tech industry in the coming years and we wanted to be at the forefront of that movement.”

In addition to the purse-like wireless Bluetooth speaker we mentioned in November, the AR For Her line incudes the “ZipStick,” which is a portable battery pack featuring a flashlight and a panic alarm for $34.99. The runway inspired designs include polka dots, and white tufted patterns. The USB port makes it possible for you to charge any compatible device on the go with a 2200 mAh UL Lithium ion battery. Optional versions without a panic alarm are available in black, cobalt, red, animal print, cayenne polka dot and white for $29.99.

The mini speaker is Bluetooth compatible and is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The smooth rubberized finish and lightweight design makes it the perfect accessory for moonlight walks on the beach or a picnic in the park. The mini speaker is available in cayenne polka dot, black, and white for $34.99.

AR for Her 4

Of course, everyone needs a charging cable. Why should you have to look like everyone else with a boring old white one. AR for Her has a line of brightly colored three-foot charging cables for Lightning, 30-pin, and micro USB charging. Colors and patterns will vary and will be available in spring for $11.99 to $24.99.

PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Amiga Games Officially Coming to the App Store This Fall

AMIGA 01

Welcome back to another edition of our weekly retro and classic games column. Flashback Friday means a lot of things to a lot of people. For us, it means games from the early 1980s all the way through to the early 1990s. We love to talk about games from our childhood. Last week, we spotlighted the remake of the Ultima IV classic, Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar.

This week, we have a big announcement that will make Amiga fans very happy. According to a recent press announcement, “Amiga Games will customize its classic Amiga titles for Apple’s iOS, including iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices, and will support Apple’s upcoming iOS 7 game controllers. Amiga Games plans to release its titles for iOS in time for the 2013 holiday season.”

Amiga launched in 1985 as a high-end personal computer that was known for its outstanding graphics and audio abilities. It was the most popular 16-bit computer of its time. By 1989, the computer was distributing games directly for the Amiga system. Games included Batman, F/A-18 Inceptor, Rainbow Island, Shadow of the Beast, and more.

The announcement did not give any hint as to what games would be made available on iOS. The App Store already houses a number of classic Amiga Games like Warlords Classic, Another World, Simon the Sorcerer, and Transport Tycoon. As new Amiga titles launch in the App Store, we will be sure to let you know on Flashback Friday.

Intel Rumored to Make 10 Percent of Apple A7 Chips While Samsung Gets Cut By Half

intel_chip_large

Yesterday, we found out that both Hon Hai and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) were hiring 5,000 new employees; a move that could mean the tech industry is on its way back up. Today, DigiTimes is reporting that TSMC is in direct competition with the biggest chipmaker in the world for Apple’s affection for manufacturing the A7 processor.

Samsung and Apple’s relationship has been rumored to be on the rocks for some time now. It is no wonder considering how many times the two have gone to court over patent infringement suits. TSMC has also been rumored to be the go-to company to pick up the pieces of Apple’s broken heart. However, that still hasn’t come to fruition.

Today’s report from DigiTimes claims that “institutional investors” have information showing that, not only will TSMC be making chips for apple in the future, but so will Intel.

“TSMC has been said to become the second largest supplier for Apple’s A7 processors and production is reportedly to begin in 2014. But recent rumors have spread that Intel may also receive Apple’s orders.”

The report claims that Samsung will retain 50 percent of chip manufacturing for Apple, while TSMC will make 40 percent and Intel will make 10 percent of the A7 processor chips.

Recently, rumors have been heating up that Intel and Apple have come to an agreement on chip making. DigiTimes’ report seems to back this information. The A7 chip is scheduled to begin production in 2014.
