Here’s Steve’s full resignation letter, sent on Wednesday: “To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community: I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know.

The Quieter Future of AltiApp

By Oliver Stockley | News

Unfortunately, as of today I will no longer be able to update AltiApp on a regular basis. I will begin studying at university in October, and will no longer have enough time to maintain the site. That said, I do still wish to post occasional updates on the site, expanding areas like the Best Apps collection and Resources, and posting occasional reviews. I still have quite a few apps lined [&hellip

Meatball Marathon Review

Meatball Marathon Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

It’s probably not politically correct, but I’ll openly admit that I find the sight of rotund men running bouncily along rather amusing. There’s just something about the way they wobble. Clearly I’m not the only one that has a crass sense of humour, because this visual entertainment forms a large part of Virtway’s 69p/99 cent Meatball Marathon Premium. The run and jump game puts you in control of Snacky G, [&hellip

Pigs in Trees - BEST APPS

Pigs in Trees – BEST APPS

By Oliver Stockley | Best Apps

Pigs In Trees (69p/$0.99) by Tactile Entertainment Review Extract: “Apple enjoy reminding us that there’s an app for just about everything. My immediate reaction? “Sure, whatever. I bet pigs can fly, too.” Well, apparently they can… sort of, anyway. ‘There’s an app for that’, and it’s called Pigs in Trees. In it, a fighter pilot pig doesn’t just fly – he flies in style, engaging in aerial combat with swarms [&hellip

Joining Hands – BEST APPS

By Oliver Stockley | Best Apps

Joining Hands (£1.99/$2.99) by 10Tons Ltd Review Extract: “In the UK, riots are dominating the headlines. Shops have been turned inside out, their entrails left scattered across the streets. Here to help remind those who looted iPhones of the advantages of everyone just getting along is a puzzle game from 10tons, Joining Hands ($2.99/£1.99). Ironically, the game is a riot to play. The app challenges you to place ultra-cute Peablins [&hellip

Fortnightly Review Fix: Gravity Lab!, Zombie Rider, Joining Hands and Pigs in Trees

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

As well as working hard to produce daily reviews for AltiApp, I’ve recently begun contributing to The Smartphone App Review. I don’t want the reviews that I’ve written for other sites to go unseen by readers of AltiApp, so every fortnight I’ll post extracts of, and links to, any articles that I post elsewhere on the web. Gravity Lab! Review: “If there’s one thing that the app store has in [&hellip

Bean’s Quest Updated With New Levels

By Oliver Stockley | Miscellaneous

Kumobius have just released a free update for the popular jumping platformer, Bean’s Quest. In my recent review of the game, my main problem with it was the lack of levels. It’s a relief, then, that version 2.0.0 of the game comes with another 9 levels, together with a few other features, listed below. – World 2 is here! Bounce your way to victory through 9 all-new levels. – Added [&hellip

A Game With Balls Review

A Game With Balls Review

By Oliver Stockley | Reviews

You know when there’s something stuck at the back of your mind, nibbling at your thoughts like an unfed hamster? I’ve got that at the moment. My problem is ‘A Game With Balls’. Not the app itself, just the name. I don’t know if I like it. Is the double entendre intentional or am I reading too much into it? More irritatingly, why was the first thing that I saw [&hellip
