The Sandbox, by PIXOWL, has gotten a high-adventure loving, relic stealing update that introduces a new characters: Jones!
You can send Jones to explore ancient Mayan temples, armed with his trusty whip and boomerang. The update includes 15 new elements and 1 new platform-oriented campaign that's 12 danger filled levels of snakes, Mayan guardians, piranha, and killer bees.
There are a ton of other new things to discover in the update to The Sandbox.
Pixowl Inc. has brought us not one, but two new campaigns in the Brainiac update for The Sandbox.
In this new update you now have access to machines such as the Spaceship, Plane, and Kamikaze Drone, and can assemble your own controllable contraptions. You'll also be able to make doors with gate controls and can devastate your pixel worlds with the Rocket Launcher. The two campaigns have 17 new levels to solve and teach you how the mechanics of the Brainiac work.
The Brainiac update for The Sandbox is available now.
We rather liked Elements Dropbox Powered Text Editor when it was first reviewed last year. Developers, Second Gear Software, were obviously determined to make it all the better by releasing a significant update in August of this year and they've gone one better by releasing yet another major update in the form of Version 2.1.
The most significant addition here is that of iCloud support. Elements 2.1 now allows the user to sync their settings, appearance preferences and scratchpad contents between different devices thanks to such support. Something that's particularly ideal for those who use the app on both iPhone and iPad.
As well as that, there's now the ability to copy the Markdown generated HTML preview to the clipboard enabling writes to transfer their words to the CMS of their choice, ideal for those using an CMS that Elements doesn't yet support.
Along the way, Second Gear Software has also fixed numerous bugs and changed a few minor things. Most curically, Elements now requires iOS 5 to run.
The update is available now for free for existing owners. Those yet to give Elements a try can purchase it for $4.99.
There are a lot of text editors out there for the iPhone and iPad. I should know, considering I have 4 on my iPad vying for my attention on a regular basis. Elements is the latest addition, thanks to a new update which is clearly setting out to be ahead of the rest.
Recently reaching its 2.0 release, Elements offers a lot above what we saw when we last looked at it. Besides the basic functionality that all text editors tend to provide, Elements allows users to edit Markdown formatted documents also. It stores all its data on the user's personal Dropbox account too ensuring that all data is accessible from any device at any time. 2.0 has also added support for other sharing methods with the ability to publish articles as a text post on Tumblr or as a note on Facebook. Evernote exporting is also now available. Support for exporting files in both HTML and PDF formats is available too. Finally, Elements has also benefited from a redesigned UI making it that bit more pleasant to use.
Elements is out now priced at $4.99. Previous owners can of course download this update for free. This seems like an ideal time to return to it.
Top Gun 2 - With great graphics, a great score, and a seriously cool movie meme going on, this second iteration in the series is bound to give us more of what we liked from the first game and improve on what we didn't.
MonoRace - Pilot your monobike (honestly, it really looks like a marble) through ever increasing speeds and tracks in this challenging, mind-bending, and just downright fu-looking game from Craneball Studios.
Zombie Escape - This one looks eerily familiar, but the iTunes App Store swears it was released this week. Add line drawing precision to real-time offensive tactics, and you have chaos with a rotting undead flavor, and who can resist that?
Elements - Dropbox Powered Text Editor - Oh, man is this gonna come in handy on stage. I keep all our disco band's lyrics in dropbox, and another copy on my iPad for use with GoodReader. Now I can eliminate the dual app setup with Elements, allowing me to see -- and change on the fly!!! -- lyrics and setlists.
Chicago Tribune - We all wish we had network signal wherever we go, but sometimes that just ain't happening. The Chicago Tribune app allows for offline access and saving favorite stories right to your device, regardless of connectivity.
