'74-Days Of The Smartphone' or 'Just How Well Did They Sell?'

'74-Days Of The Smartphone' or 'Just How Well Did They Sell?'

So which smartphone is leading the market? Just how do you judge who's "winning" in this competitive mobile-gadget arena? After compiling sales for the first 74 days of each major smartphone's release, mobile phone analysis firm Flurry has revealed that the Droid sold 50,000 more units than the iPhone in the same period. Flurry blogger Peter Farago provides some insight as to how Motorola might have managed to eke out more sales than Apple for their product (incidentally, 74 days is how long it took Apple to reach 1 million sales from the the iPhone 1G's launch). "Motorola Droid launched over 2.5 years after the iPhone 1G. (Nov 2009 vs. July 2007). When the iPhone launched, consumers' conc…


Artilect Pro Review

Review Yuri Brigance By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Artilect Pro Review

Artilect by Atomic Cactus is a puzzle game in which you take turns against a human or AI controlled opponent, trying to change the colour of orbs to reach your opponent's goal. It's also very difficult as the AI is brutal even on the early stages. What then is it, that makes this game so hard to put down? Control is all touch based. Each level consists of green orbs between the two goals, with the game starting in the middle. Upon touching a green orb, you change it to your colour, dr…

Cubetrix 3D Review

Review Mobicle Co.,Ltd. By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Cubetrix 3D Review

Did you ever play a match three gem game and think, "I want these colours to be in cubes that i can push from the outside?" No? Well too bad cause that's what Cubetrix 3D is. Those tricky cubes need to be pushed to form lines of three of the same colour which will then explode, sending the rest careening together, hopefully leading to more explosions. Ok, so maybe the tone is a little melodramatic, but that's the basic idea. There are three buttons on screen. Two are used to move the…

Sailboat Championship PRO Review

Do you fancy yourself nautically minded? Do you watch the America's Cup every year?

Dark Shrine Review

Review Devsisters By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Dark Shrine Review

It has been a while since I've had the pleasure of driving a cocky son-of-a-demon through a manic and strange RPG-world. Despite some surface similarities to the world of Disgaea, Dark Shrine by Devsisters and Hotdog is a great new action-RPG for the App Store that's only marginally diminished by its temperamental controls. The story and gameplay is linear, but broken up in to accessible bite-sized chunks of individual levels that are quick and easy enjoy. One the main features is its…

Caligo Chaser by Com2us is fairly standard action RPG fare.

Project "Thor" Review

Review Jury Shortki By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 5 months ago
Project "Thor" Review

Project Thor by Jury Shortki is a bit of an odd-ball when it comes to classification. Strictly speaking it's another castle-defense game, but replace castle with planet and defense with Arkanoid. If nothing else, Project Thor demands attention for being so genuinely unique. It's hard to describe the gameplay, but it goes a little something like this: While defending a new planet for humanity, you control a giant shield that reflects incoming attacks while building a large temporary "o…
