Posted by Peter Willington on February 19th, 2015

Three episodes in and AppSpy's James has decided to give GEOFF - the Gaming Entertainment Online Fact Finder - a serious test: why are guns being censored on the App Store?

And is looking at a pretend gun that bad?

And why are games being treated differently to other mediums?

Hooray! 148Apps has 30,000 Followers on Twitter

Posted by Peter Willington on September 12th, 2013

Well you've gone and done it. We always knew you would, and now you have. You've finally pushed 148Apps over the edge.

On Twitter, that is. You can hang up on that call to our psychiatrists.

That's right, the 148Apps community has just hit a new milestone on Twitter, having now amassed a whopping 30,000 followers.

Think about it: that's a crazy-large number.

30,000 is the number of people it takes to completely fill the FAU Stadium (home of the Florida Atlantic Owls football), or St. Andrew's (home of Birmingham City FC).

30,000 is the number of years many historians believe humanity has been creating art.

30,000 is the number of miles per hour a meteorite was traveling through the atmosphere when it hit this kid.

30,000 then, is a large number.

If you're not already a part of that number you can join us by clicking here and thwacking that Follow button. We're on Facebook and YouTube too, if that's more your thing.

Tell Us Your Five Favorite Apps and Games, Over on Best App Ever

Posted by Peter Willington on July 9th, 2013

Celebrate the App Store's birthday with us -- share your favorite apps and games on Facebook.

It's hard to believe that just half a decade ago, apps weren't a "thing". If you wanted to game on the go, or be productive while mobile, your choices were few, you were usually limited to the in-built software for your phone. With apps though, pretty much anything's now possible. You can use your phone to write documents, find recipes, DJ, play all manner of games, oh yeah, and call and text.

So with this in mind, we're celebrating this landmark along with our friends at Pocket Gamer, PocketGamer.biz, AppSpy and beyond, over on the Best App Ever Facebook Page. Our editors and regular contributors will be documenting their five favorite apps and games of the last five years, along with their hopes for the App Store in the future.

We'd love for you to be a part of it too. Share your favorite five games, and your wishes for the store moving forward, over on the Best App Ever Facebook Wall.
