It was announced recently that there will, in fact, be a Civilization Revolution 2, and that it will be a mobile-only release. Seeing as Civilization Revolution is a great game, and a slightly more streamlined version of the strategy juggernaut actually seems like a really great fit for mobile anyway, this is exciting news.

What’s even more exciting is that it’s every bit as much of a time-devouring black hole as the original.

civrev201The improvements made to mobile hardware over the past couple of years has Civilization Revolution 2 looking good. Almost as good as the original game did on consoles, actually. The interface has also been significantly improved and functions pretty much the same way you’d expect: tap to select a space to move a unit to, tap again to confirm movement, tap to navigate through menues, etc. An interesting addition is the End Turn button that’s actually more of a switch. To help prevent players from accidentally ending their turn prematurely, you actually have to hold the button down and drag it to the left – not unlike shutting down an iPhone or iPad, actually.

New maps, wonders, special scenarios, and technologies like Modern Warfare and Information Technology are available, as well as two new leaders (JFK and Churchill) that can be unlocked. Multiplayer, however, has been cut out entirely. It seems as though it wasn’t much of a draw on mobile, which means more time and resources for developing the campaign so it’s difficult to get upset over.

If you just can’t wait to get your hands on Civilization Revolution 2, you’re in luck! The game is out this Wednesday, July 2, and will be available for $14.99.

Popular tactical RPG Record of Agarest War started out on consoles, and was brought to Android, but now it’s finally on iOS.

All the hours upon hours of gameplay, massive combos, monster capturing, giving birth to the next generation’s hero (for up to 5 generations), and more are present and accounted for – it’s just been shrunk down. Pretty cool, right? It’s a wonder nobody’s been talking about it.

iPad users get ready: SlingPlayer has just received its newest update (3.0) today!

First in today’s software overhaul is an improved interface that makes it easier for users to search for the content they want using special filters and third-party services. Next on the list: Sports. Now finding the Big Game, or even a smaller one that you just really want to see, is a snap. And once that game is found users can check live statistics, find scores, and rant/gloat all over social media from directly within the app.

On the more technical side of things we have Second Screen Control and Split-Screen Navigation. Second Screen Control allows current SlingBox customers to turn their iPad into a “second screen companion,” which is sort of like a super-fancy remote control that can also be used to view media directly. Split-Screen Navigation, on the other hand, is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: users can search for stuff to watch, do their social media thing, and check up on The Sports while simultaneously watching a video on their iPad. Neat stuff!

The SlingPlayer update is live right now, and requires iOS 7.0 or later. Oh, and all these nifty features are only available for the U.S. and Canada for some reason.

One of Apple’s coolest features, AirPlay, is also one of its least-utilized. Currently, users can easily stream content from their iOS device right to their Apple TV, and the service will be extended in the new OS X Mountain Lion update to allow Macs to do the same. However, there’s never been a way to stream content from an iPhone or iPad to a Mac, until now.

Reflection offers a simple solution to the problem, simply run the app on your Mac, connect your iOS device to the same wireless network, enable AirPlay and viola, you’re all set. While you still control all of your iOS apps on their native device, you can now display them on your Mac, which should make for some pretty impressive gaming sessions at the very least.

Reflection will run you $14.99 for a license on a single Mac and $39.99 to install it on up to five separate computers. This being the first version of the app there are still some bugs and crashes, as well as a bit of input lag, but we’re sure that will get tuned up in future updates. In any case, we’re pretty impressed that someone got AirPlay running from iOS to Mac, and in a surprising twist it wasn’t even Apple.

Learning how to write a good academic essay is a vital skill for many students but it’s not always easy to learn how to achieve such great results. Enter an app by the name of High School Writing which hopes to help students learn exactly what they need to know to approach essay writing, right down to addressing college application essays.

The app, recently updated, includes ten major essays that students should learn. These consist of: Argumentative (Persuasive), Cause and Effect, Compare and Contrast, Descriptive, Expository (Informative), Five-Paragraph, Narrative (First Person), Narrative (Third Person), Opinion and Reaction (Response) Paper. Each essay type is vital for numerous different purposes so this app should cover all eventualities. It even goes onto teach students how to write the best college application essays to ensure that they know how to sell themselves appropriately.

Currently priced at $14.99 (regularly $19.99), High School Writing is one of the more expensive apps out there – however, its ability to teach critical thinking in such a simple way is priceless for those desperate to improve their grades.

High School Writing is available now. It’s an universal app with the iPad offering some great dual-viewing fields allowing for side by side comparison of websites for research purposes.
