Cannonball eMail is Now Live – Works With Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail, and AOL

Posted by on July 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Cannonball Corp. has released their brand new Cannonball eMail app for Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, Hotmail and AOL. The app organizes emails into a visual presentation that separates important messages from subscriptions and advertisements. It also includes a feature that marks all of your older email and subscription emails as read, and allows you to group those emails by sender for easier browsing, bulk deleting, and blocking. The app sends alerts only for new messages that are considered important.

According to Cannonball co-founder Raffaele Colella, “Most of the email apps on the market today address business use, aimed at increasing productivity and allowing users to slash through their emails. This is only 25 percent of the market. We’re addressing the other 75 percent — the three billion personal email accounts. We want to make it easier for these users to manage their inboxes and do it in a way that makes them happy to engage with email again.”

Cabnnonball eMail is compatible with email accounts from Gmail, Yahoo, iCloud, AOL, and Outlook, and is available on the now App Store for free.

Recently got into Supercell’s other huge hit, Hay Day and could do with some advice on what to do? We’ve got you covered with some helpful trips and tricks to bear in mind!

Ticking Along

hayday1
One of the key things to keep in mind while building up that farm is the importance of the different currencies available. Everything to do with Hay Day depends on one of three things – experience, coins, and diamonds.

  • Experience is gained by things such as selling goods and harvesting crops. Following the order board is the fastest way to level up, but it’s not always wise to level too fast (more on that later).
  • Coins are used for purchasing buildings, animals, and items from shops. You can earn coins from completing truck orders, selling stuff, and profiteering from visiting customers.
  • Diamonds are the premium currency here but they can be gained via a few different ways. You earn diamonds every time you level up, if you sync the game with your Facebook account, and also when completing one of the many achievements on offer. As a final tip, look for purple tickets that appear near your newspaper and watch a clip to gain more diamonds. Also, try not to use them too often as you’re better off saving them for more expensive things.

The Importance of Crops

  • Every crop you plant will double its yield upon harvest. That’s an important fact to remember. Don’t use up all the seeds in your silo, no matter how tempting it might be, in order to complete an objective. Instead, plant those seeds but make sure there’s enough spare for later on. Otherwise you’ll have to use diamonds to buy more, which is such a waste.
  • Always have a good, steady supply of the basics such as wheat, corn, soybeans, and other simple feed for your animals. It’ll keep your livestock happy and keep the symmetry of the Hay Day life stable.
  • It’s an important lesson that we all need to remember with these kind of games – TIME WHAT YOU PLANT. Yes, it’s that important that it needed capital letters. Plant slow growing stuff overnight or when you’re away from the game for a while. It’ll keep you sane while still feeling like you’re progressing without wasting those all-important diamonds.
  • Remember: wheat, corn, and carrots take mere minutes to grow, while pumpkins and indigo can take hours. Plan accordingly.

Progressing

hayday2

  • Use the roadside stand to sell spare goods. It’s a quick way to make a few bucks. Check the newspaper to see what your friends are selling at the moment and work around that.
  • Remember that most crafted goods will sell relatively quickly because other players want them to fill their orders. Go for the maximum price then pull it back by about 10% so that you sell quickly but for a good price.
  • The board fills up with order requests but don’t be afraid to skip some. It’ll take a few minutes for a new order to show up, but it’s worth it. Some orders pay a pittance or simply take too long to complete. Focus on what’s easiest to achieve for maximum profit.

Money, Money, Money

  • There’s a pretty easy but dull way to make money fast: plant wheat everywhere. If you constantly harvest and sell off the surplus, you’ll gain some valuable rare items along the way. It’s dull though, so only do it if you’re exceptionally determined.
  • With that money, you can buy building materials that can then be used to upgrade your various storage places, as well as buy new land plots. It’ll be worth it in the long run.
  • Find those materials through newspaper ads but remember to decide quickly as things change fast. Don’t like the ads? Quit the game completely (right down to double tapping the home screen and swiping up on the game to clear Hay Day from running in the background) and go back in. The ads will all be new!

Most importantly of all, balance your aims to make money alongside gaining experience. It’ll ensure you don’t end up too unbalanced but it’s also a heck of a lot more fun that way! After all, developing that farm is a marathon, not a sprint.

For the first time since its release (which has thankfully been a much shorter window for iPad players than their PC counterparts), Blizzard’s wildly successful Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft CCG is sporting some brand new content: the single player “adventure” mode, Curse of Naxxramas. Based on the World of Warcraft raid dungeon of the same name, Naxxramas is divided up into various themed quarters: the Arachnid, Plague, Military, and Construct Quarters, and ending with the Frostwyrm Lair. Naxxramas’ Arachnid Quarter opened up this week and I brushed back the cobwebs to peek inside.

Hearthstone: Curse of NaxxramasThe three challenges of the Arachnid Quarter come in the forms of the Spider Lord Anub’Rekhan, Grand Widow Faerlina, and the giant spider Maexxna – sure to give anyone with arachnophobia a severe case of the creepy-crawlies. Each boss has their own special 2 mana “class” power, from summoning minions (Anub’Rekhan), to sending random minions back to a player’s hand (Maexxna), to firing randomly assigned magic damage based on how many cards the player is holding (Faerlina). There are also Heroic versions of the same fights, where the dungeon bosses start off with a massive 45 life to the player’s paltry 30 – while also sporting enhanced versions of their powers. Summoning a 4/4 minion for 2 mana? Yeah, that seems incredibly well-balanced. Good luck!

There are also two Class Challenges, where players are pitted against Naxxramas’ bosses with pre-built class-specific decks. Rogue and Druid are the two classes on offer this time, with the Rogue facing Faerlina while the Druid takes on Maexxna. Other Class Challenges will unlock as the weeks roll on, of course. It would be nice to see these with their own Heroic variants too, but in some cases that could get dangerously close to overkill.

Hearthstone: Curse of NaxxramasAll of the battles in this wing of Naxxramas feel fresh and interesting. The new graphics for the playing area feature fun little interactive elements and there’s a ton of new voiceover work, including new lines for plenty of existing Hearthstone cards. In particular, the running commentary between matches from Naxxramas’ resident Lich Lord, Kel’Thuzad, is funny – almost at odds with the presumed tone of the new area. Then again, Hearthstone has never been afraid to be light and goofy. A lot of the new cards on display bank heavily on Battlecry and Deathrattle effects (SO many Deathrattles!). Also, with a number of new Beast subtype cards, Beast-themed Hunter decks have just received a huge boost.

The other wings of Curse of Naxxramas begin opening, one by one, starting next week with the Plague Quarter. Each wing costs $6.99 (with bundles available at a discounted price) or 700 in-game gold – but, sadly, no bundles), so you’d better start farming those daily Quests for gold now. However, keep in mind Quests only advance via Play or Arena mode – time spent in the depths of Naxxramas doesn’t count toward their completion. So what are you waiting for, adventurer? Get back out there and sling some cards!

LEX Goes Free For One Day In Honor of New Update

Posted by on July 24th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s a big day for Simple Machine’s word game, LEX. For one thing, it’s just been updated so that it now throws double letters into the mix, plus there are some handy bug fixes going on.

To celebrate that update, LEX is entirely free to download for today only!

Plus, for the coding buffs out there, LEX has also been made open-source for the public, meaning that coders can manipulate the code as they please if they wish. Simple Machine has explained that they believe “ownership is becoming obsolete,” which is why they want to inspire young and old through this venture. A video below explains more on the matter.

For those yet to try LEX, I’d suggest diving in now before the price goes back up.

Cowabunga! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run Is Currently Free

Posted by on July 23rd, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Presumably due to the forthcoming movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run is free on the App Store at the moment.

The game allows you to control your favorite turtle as he runs, jumps, fights, and drives his way through New York’s endless landscape.

We weren’t too keen on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Rooftop Run when it first came out, mostly because there was a ton of grinding to it. However, as it’s gone free for a limited time this might be just the right time for you to see if you agree with us.

We’re not sure how long it’s on sale for, so we’d suggest grabbing it as soon as possible.

Real Boxing’s New Combo Update is a Knockout

Posted by on July 18th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Put up your dukes! The folks over at Vivid Games are proud to announce the newest update to their 2012 Editor’s Choice garnering boxing simulator, Real Boxing.

The appropriately titled, “Combo Update,” adds a whole new brawling mechanic to the player’s arsenal. Successfully landing six consecutive punches from alternating sides will unlock a stamina boost that allows for up to three additional strikes. This should hopefully help simulate the adrenaline boost that a fighter would get when pummeling an opponent into submission.

Real Boxing usually costs $0.99, but it is currently on sale in the App Store for free. So be sure to not miss out on this limited time offer.
