Square Enix’s Masters of the Masks: different yet typical

Square Enix snuck in a mobile game while we were still busy obsessing over various incarnations of Final Fantasy, both on the big machines and hopefully on mobile as well. But its surprise game, Masters of the Masks, couldn't be farther from whatever preconceived notion you might have of a Square Enix mobile game, incorporating some things that the game developer has never done on mobile before. And yet, at the same time, it is because of those very same things that make MotM actually closer to a typical mobile game than anything Square Enix has done before.

CyanogeMod isn’t getting into bed with Microsoft, CM12.1 nears

Android news might still be ringing abut Cyanogen, Inc.'s partnership with Microsoft to preload the latter's apps into Cyanogen OS. While this is no different from Samsung's similar deal, the fact that it is Cyanogen making it has caused a stir among the Android community, particularly those in the ROM community. The ramifications of this business move is a topic fit for another day, on a post of its own. In the meantime, however, CyanogenMod, not Cyanogen, is assuring its users that it isn't taking a similar path.

Any.do 3.0 puts the todo app back in the running

You'd think that todo lists, simple as they are in concept, would be equally easy to get right in implementation. And yet the myriad of todo apps floating around proves otherwise. It hard to perfect such an app but few have come quite close. Any.do, which began its life on the iPhone, was one of those but sadly it slowed down its pace after some period success. With the latest update, however, that brings the app to a 3.0 version, Any.do not only gets a fresh new look but a fresh new chance to become big again.

Huawei P8, P8max revealed: reaching for the skies

Given how the smartphone market is these days, it's not that easy to leave a mark in consumer's consciousness, especially when you're up against giants like Samsung or Apple.

That said, once in a while a smartphone does come up with rather interesting bits and pieces that make it worthy of a second and deeper look. The Huawei P8 that was just revealed today could very well be such a smartphone.
