Today We launched our vibrant new category, Hand-Picked. We envision the category to voice opinions and standpoints on apps for iOS & OS X, we admire these apps and see a promising consumption value being received by the users. There’s a simple yet meaningful story behind the depreciation of the usual Review category to a fresh, more responsible category, Hand-Picked. While I was discussing about reviewing Clear app for Mac with my colleague Mark, he jokingly said “We better be careful, Clear doesn’t really need a review.” We continued discussing about apps we truly embrace and wish to feature on our website for our readers.
Clear is a to-do app in the overcrowded Productivity category of the app store. Why I say overcrowded is because productivity driven apps are submitted every fortnight, very few ones make it to the top and eventually become an important part of a user’s daily life, a tool to kickstart your day and an app which stays on your iPhone, Mac for a reasonable amount of time. While you look around, veterans & award winning apps like Things already occupy a senior rank, there’s a stiff competition which already exists and to cut across this competition is an achievement in itself. Clear certainly transcends well-known productivity apps and is fully able towards resting on your iPhone, Mac for months or even years.
Given a first glance, Clear might appear a clean, simple app, lacking in details and frills expected from a typical muscly built productivity app, and not powerful enough to carry the burden of meticulous schedules and routines of a user. But, once you start using you realize how effectively it manages to-do’s and is a secretly feature-packed app. Clear can smoothy manage a complex productivity plan of a user.
Simulation games are actually sweet, lovable, you fall in love with this whole cycle of producing and reaping. Its a perpetual rhythm of sowing, harvesting and savoring the growth. There’s more to it, more than being just a Simulation. As a player, I was so intrigued and fascinated by FarmVille that I wrote about an engrossment phenomena which I had been through. It was a sticky phenomena and I only visualized crops, home farm, decorations and everything possible required to fabricate the perfect farm. It was indeed a charming experience. While you are undergoing a relentless journey of copying activities from ‘real life’ into the game, you learn a lot of planning and organizing skills, appears nonfictional at times. Perhaps there are failures in this category, hundreds of game make a promising entry and end up with an unhappy exit.
According to a report published by Tech Crunch, employing “culturally aware” managers at Apple is a signal of why Apple is interested in acquiring Beats.

Massive Multiplayer Online role playing games (MMORPG) as a genre usually creates curiosity and raises expectations every time you play a new MMORPG driven game. Despite of the fact that there is a predetermined criterion which constitutes MMORPG, yet a user before playing a MMORPG expects newness. Looking from a developer’s perspective, there remains a massive challenge in capturing the complete ideology of MMORPG, A developer who is venturing into making a MMORPG has to beat the existing competition in order to make the game rise up the charts. After undergoing a relentless gameplay cycle of the well-known MMORPG Seed 4, I can insist that the developers have put in a sincere effort behind development of this game and it does absolute justice to the MMORPG category of games.
