Using your phone in a protest

Posted by Campbell Bird on June 1st, 2020

I can't write about games today. There is a struggle happening in the streets right now and it needs everyone's attention. Here's some good info on how you can use your iOS device safely amidst a protest.

Know your rights

If law enforcement attempts to seize your phone and search through it, you have no obligation to unlock the phone for them. Police only have the right to seize your device if they place you under arrest, have probable cause, or a warrant. Regardless of how the seizure takes place though, they are not then entitled to the information on it.

You may have seen a our new Clash Royale guide kicking around on the site lately, and that's because I decided to check back in on the game after years away from it. Turns out, it's still a pretty incredible game, and Supercell has done quite a bit to try and tone down the more frustrating aspects of the game in my time away from it.

As a result, I'm all the way back in on the game and having a blast. If you've been curious about getting back into Clash Royale, or never found the time to get into in the first place, here are some tips to help you get into the game while avoiding some of its more frustrating aspects.

The Ultimate iPad Setup

Posted by Campbell Bird on April 29th, 2020

iPads are awesome. We all know this. But an iPad all on its own can sometimes just feel like a big, unwieldy phone that sits in some corner, only to be dusted off when you need a way to watch Netflix on a flight.

It doesn’t have to be this way, though. With a little additional investment, you can kit out your tablet so that it can serve as your primary computer both for productivity and entertainment purposes.

How do I know this? Well, I’ve been an iPad owner for years, and have written the vast majority of everything I’ve ever posted to this site using one. With all of this in mind, I’ve put together a handy little guide on things to pick up (or skip) when looking to make your iPad the absolute best it can be for everything.

For the purposes of this guide, I’ll be speaking about items generally, as your wants and needs around said items might shift depending on which model of iPad you have. I’ll also be sharing my personal favorite picks, but those are all based on how well they work with an iPad Pro 11 (2018), as it's my current iPad of choice.

Bad North: Jotunn Edition guide

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 23rd, 2019

Bad North: Jotunn Edition can be cruel. You never quite know where your next attack is going to come from, and--even if you’re prepared for it--things might just not go your way.

This doesn't mean the game is random, but it does have a peculiar imprecision to it that you definitely have to get used to. If you find yourself struggling to make adjustments so you can finish a run successfully in this game, keep these tips in mind.

Posted by Campbell Bird on October 1st, 2019

We’re getting closer and closer to Halloween every day, which means everyone’s gearing up to watch their favorite horror movies, make weekend trips out to pumpkin patches, and do all kinds of other, fun seasonal stuff before this month ends and everyone looks toward Thanksgiving.

There’s a bunch of great games on the App Store that can get you in the mood for Halloween, and we’ve compiled a list of the best ones in a handy little list.

Gears POP! guide - Other games that won't make you wish you had Rustlung

Posted by Campbell Bird on August 27th, 2019
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Another big-name franchise has come to mobile, and it’s (unsurprisingly) pretty bad. Gears POP! follows in the footsteps of Dr. Mario World and The Elder Scrolls: Blades. All are high-profile mobile releases and all actively engender ill will toward mobile gaming by being somewhat boring knock offs of predatory free-to-play games.

Hopefully, with the launch of Apple Arcade, this will be less of a problem. In the meantime though, there are some games out on mobile that might give you what you want from Gears POP! without subjecting you to its clunky gameplay or intensely haunting Funko Pop aesthetics. See below:

Gigantic X continues to inspire loot lust over here at 148Apps, particularly because the game has already been updated just in its second week of release.

Unfortunately, this 1.1.0 patch doesn’t bring a whole ton of new goodies with it, but it does bring some changes to the game itself, most of which are pretty welcome. See below for details:

Log-in event

One thing that’s in most live games, but has been missing from Gigantic X, is finally here. Daily log-ins are now a thing, and the rewards for them are nothing to sneeze at.

Until August 9, logging in daily can get you some weapon crates that drop tier 4 or 5 weapons, plus credits and crona. These rewards are surprisingly generous given that all you have to do to get them is open the game.
