Posted by on March 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Football Seasons, a game that would likely be called “Soccer Seasons” if it were made on the east side of the Atlantic, is a fun card game that makes you the manager of a football club. An update to the game, numbered version 2.3, was released recently featuring a new solo campaign with over 100 different seasons to play.

Also included in this update is the addition of new, stronger artificial intelligence that will challenge you more during some parts of the game, a new in-game “top solo” leaderboard for determining the best coaches, as well as new credit rewards.

While Football Seasons is completely free on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, it does feature a plethora of different in-app purchases to make your experience just that much more fun.

FIFA 14 Updated with Tweaked Controls, Turkish Language Support, and More

Posted by on March 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

FIFA 14 is getting into the World Cup spirit with its latest update, which adds some tweaks and other goodies.

First, the game is becoming “more international” by adding in Turkish Language support. Also, an Origin login isn’t required to create an Ultimate Team – it is possible to play such anonymously. The controls and movement mechanics have also been tweaked for smoothness.

This free-to-play soccer simulation remains popular, even months after we first reviewed it in the Fall of last year. We were impressed then, so it is safe to assume this update can only make the game better.

FIFA 14 is available on the App Store for free.

Email is becoming a thing of the past for many younger internet users, but for most of us it’s still a critical part of our workflow. CloudMagic is already known as a decent iOS email client, but the app recently became a lot more innovative with its new “Cards” feature. The new 1.0.19 update notes boast that Cards allow you to “get all your work done without ever leaving your email.”

How exactly? The video below will do a great job of explaining it, but essentially, Cards integrates your favorite internet services like Pocket, Trello, and Evernote into your email inbox. Receive a recipe to cook for dinner later? Just use the Evernote card and save it as you would if you had found that recipe online. But that’s just one example; Cards is a whole lot more powerful than that.

The Verge reports that the newest update for iOS 7, which would be 7.1, has gone live.

Version 7.1 isn’t necessarily a major change, but it does adjust and fix a few things that will most likely affect some users over others. First and foremost is a fix for the “reboot” issue that many have been having with the newest iOS devices (i.e. the iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and iPad Mini Retina). CarPlay has also been included, which will allow users to connect their device to their car and access various features such as music and text messages through Siri. So long as they drive a newer Volvo, Ferrari, or Mercedes-Benz anyway.

Other improvements include tweaked interface designs when dialing or powering off a device, better search functionality in iTunes Radio, and the ability to hold the Home button down as you talk to Siri to keep her from cutting you off in mid-sentence. Just make sure to clear off some space before you download it; it’s a biggun’.

The iOS 7.1 update is available now.

Level Money is taking proactive steps to ensure that its users are as secure as possible by requiring that they update to iOS version 7.0.6, which contains Apple’s new security patch. According to Level Money’s blog it was the responsible thing to do, even though it wasn’t responsible for the breach.

“Even though this is not a vulnerably in the Level system, we knew we had to do everything in our power prevent exposure of the sensitive information our members trust us with. Last night, we implemented a requirement that Level members update to iOS version 7.0.6 in order to continue using the app. Version 7.0.5 is inherently insecure, and data on that iOS version cannot be protected. Members that update to the latest version should be able to resume use of Level Money without any further interruption. However, we know we are far from the only app entrusted with sensitive information, which is why we are calling on all other app developers — particularly those handling banking and payment information —to implement similar measures. Apps handling sensitive information have a responsibility to respond quickly to this type of exposure. Users must be required to update their iOS version if we are to uphold our promise to protect the information which we are entrusted with.”
