Bible verses are a natural fit for the iPhone -- a compact, easily carried device that everyone already takes with them everywhere.

So what better medium could there be to provide you with an instant daily affirmation through a carefully selected bible verse? This is the promise of Your Daily Bible Verse Free, an app produced by Marc Moore to deliver one free verse to your device every day. The interface, layout, … Read more
We weren't really sure what to expect when we first opened BsReality on our iPhone. And, honestly, after spending a bit of time testing it, we're still not exactly sure of its purpose. It's supposed to create an augmented reality using auras, but these auras aren't the kind that psychics speak of; rather, according to app description, they are the "images, videos or even games that Aurasma will bring to life ..." OK, then.
There is nothing intuitive about BsReality when you first open it. It opens with your camera ready to take a picture. … Read more
Saving videos directly from YouTube to your hard drive is a widely asked-for feature. One of the possible candidates to satisfy this demand is YouTube Video Downloader Pro. However, even though the thought of saving videos from YouTube directly to your computer with an integrated and seamless procedure seems attractive, this software doesn't deliver.
If you have found YouTube Downloader Pro while searching for the perfect solution, we advise against trying it. The installer asks for permission to change your default home page as well as your search engine. If you opt out of this, which you probably should, … Read more
With this exciting game, even couch potatoes can find their inner free-runner. Vector is chock-full of exciting parkour moves and dozens of levels. It's a ton of fun if you like side-scrolling chase games, but most of its content requires a ton of play or cash to unlock.
At first, it's very difficult to find the small settings button to turn off the game's blaring music. That's the only knock on the game's appearance, though. The graphics are very smooth and run without a hitch, even on phones with outdated processors. Vector doesn't start … Read more
In recent iterations of the iPhone, the camera has taken center stage, allowing users to record full HD videos on the fly, quickly and easily. The one thing missing from the experience, though, is the ability to just as quickly and easily edit and share those videos with friends and family. This is where Adobe enters the picture with its VideoBite app. Exactly as it sounds, VideoBite is designed to slice and dice your favorite videos (or record new ones) and share them with anyone through your Library or on Facebook. The interface is clean, smooth, and responsive, the app … Read more
The next LG Optimus may have leaked!
This week Fortune debuted a list of the 100 best companies to work for. Google took the No. 1 spot while Microsoft checked in at No. 75. Wireless tech company Qualcomm took the 11 spot while chip manufacturer Intel showed up at 68.
Details of a high-powered version of LG's Optimus G have apparently leaked online. A slide sent to Engadget teases a new LG phone with a 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 32 GB of on-board storage. There's no word yet on which … Read more
Psy's smash hit got everyone doing the signature horsey dance. The Gangnam Style Dance Booth Hits app claims to let you paste your face on the South Korean singer, but never works. It won't let you create video thanks to dozens of pop-up ads that take over your screen.
LAS VEGAS--Cyborgs, meet your gear. The Vuzix M100 Smart Glasses, a wearable Bluetooth/Wi-Fi headpiece with a built-in HD camera and WQVGA floating eyepiece display, are on hand to try out at CES 2013. Previously seen in nonworking prototype form at the end of last year, the M100 Smart Glasses will run on Android and eventually iOS and be available by summer 2013 (fall for iOS, pending app approval).
"It would feel like you're looking at a screen the size of your phone, but the image floats out in space," Vuzix President and Chief Executive Paul Travers … Read more

The creators of Angry Birds are back with a game that centers on pigs this time around, and bad ones at that. Bad Piggies sounds goofy in its description, but trust us, it has the makings of a very addictive game -- as long as you keep the sound on mute.
Bad Piggies' main menu includes buttons to share your results on various social media channels, and an options menu for controlling the sound and accessing the App Store. We tapped the Play button and were taken to a screen that contained four scenes to choose from: Ground Hog Day, … Read more
