TattleType is Basically Kid Spyware for Parents

Posted by on January 13th, 2015
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

For those helicopter parents who hover about their kid in constant fear, the internet can be a scary place. Vaughn Simon has created a new app, TattleType, that allows parents to monitor what their kids are typing.

Basically a parent can set up a list of restricted words and then if their kids types those words, the parent is notified. The app can also quote a few words leading up to the restricted word and whatever the child typed afterward for the next 30 seconds. Is it a creepy app that violates your kid’s privacy, or a powerful tool to help provide a level of safety to your family?

You can decide for yourself (if you’re so inclined) by downloading TattleType for $4.99 on the App Store.

If all that wasn’t enough, 505 Games also added new biomes as well as updates to old ones, new events, new music, bigger chests, and weather. Good heavens.

Would you like to know what we thought of all this drifting and rough racing? Check out our Reckless Racing 3 review!

Reckless Racing 3 is down and dirty racing that prides itself on crazy drifts, breakneck straights, and fantastic in-game physics. Here are few tips to help you to take those corners like a pro.


 

Start Your Engines

IMG_0041.PNG

  • Use the straight sections to steal a glance at the mini map towards the top of the screen and check for any fast-approaching sharp turns.
  • It’s only on those severe turns that braking becomes necessary. Usually releasing the acceleration while turning into the bend, then hitting the gas and turning out of it will suffice. When using the default button layout, tapping to turn out of a drift is a much better technique than holding down on the directional arrow, ensuring maximum control rather than veering into another drift accidentally. Just be aware that terrain can sometimes dictate otherwise.
  • While the green guideline might be a great tool for rough navigation, deviating slightly wide and then taking corners as close as possible without crashing is a surefire way to overtake and undercut other racers.
  • The reset button isn’t as damning as you’d think. In fact, in any situation that requires a reversal maneuver the reset button is actually preferential as it only incurs a minimal time penalty, can serve as an obstruction to opponents, and sometimes players won’t even lose their position.
  • Larger, heavier vehicles can use their weight to their advantage by smashing other cars off-course. This is best achieved by hitting the back of an opponent’s car during a turn, forcing them into a tailspin. Be sure to judge how this will effect the speed and trajectory of your own car, though.
  • In the settings menu, turn on the Chase Camera to have a clearer view of the road ahead, putting you behind your racer rather than at a fixed bird’s eye view. While this new angle may bring on a bit of motion sickness for the weak-stomached (if you had a problem with iOS’ home screen animations then you might want to play Zen Garden instead) it grants a better perspective for upcoming turns. For Gymkhana Mode however, the sheer amount of donuts and spins makes the Chase Camera a dizzying nightmare, so it’s better to have it saved for Races and Drift events.
