Flappy Bird: 60 Points and I Still Can’t Bring Myself to Retire

An influx of images on my Facebook Timeline started it. Several of my friends were sharing screenshots of very low scores (less than 10) and “Game Over” scrawled over the top of a very Mario-esque background. “What’s this?” I found…

[Infographic] Global Siri Usage Statistics

I came across this awesome infographic by besirious.com earlier on, which covers off some key global Siri usage statistics (based on data from iPhone 4S users). Based on the (granted, some difficult to read) info at the bottom, it seems ‘regular…

My Nan’s Got an iPad (And Other Reasons I Love Apple)

I’ve never made a secret of my love of Apple. Over a period of 3 and a half years I’ve gone from one of the people laughing at those who part with their hard earned cash for something they don’t…

iPhone 5 – Shiny Bits and Shortcomings

I LOVE my new iPhone 5. It’s made my year. Yes, I preordered and despite that UK Mail debacle, I managed to get it (no thanks to that particular delivery service) within 24 hours of launch. As much as I…

4G Broadband – Why Should I Care?

One of the main reasons I’m so excited about my new iPhone 5 (aside from the fact it’s so shiny) is 4G LTE. This post is a guest post by Broadband Genie that explains what 4G is and why you…

6 Moments of Sheer Siri Loveliness

In the UK, Siri has (by default) a very serious male voice.  Disappointingly, I was forced to conclude last year that Siri would make an awful boyfriend on the grounds that he wasn’t funny, was secretive and unloving. That and…

iPhone 5 – So Excited I Almost Peed Myself

It was a foregone conclusion. No matter what Apple had announced, I was already going to buy the iPhone 5. That’s because I am one of those people who takes a look at an Apple product and stands there jaw…

I’ve written on the Tecmark blog about my obsession with Google Chrome for iOS. I wrote that post on the day I downloaded Chrome for the first time, shortly after its iOS launch. At the time of this first version, I…

New Facebook iOS app August 2012

Shiny New Facebook iOS is Frikkin Awesome

It’s been a long standing complaint of mine that the Facebook iPhone app is so buggy and slow. Yeh, yeh, first world problems. I know. Nonetheless, my world got a little bit better last night when I downloaded the new…

Sketchman for iPhone app review

App Obsession of the Week: Sketchman

I’m a sucker for those ‘just-keep-running-as-far-as-you-can-and-don’t-get-munched-by-any-baddies-or-fall-down-any-holes-or-trip-over-any-bad-shit’ games. You know the sort… Canabalt, Temple Run and Subway Surf would be recent examples. I’m also a sucker for rough, sketch like graphics (Doodle Jump!). So it almost feels as though Miniclip and Zionplay…

Dog Effects for iOS – Brilliantly Pointless

I’m having a lot of fun with Dog Effects for iOS. It’s a free iPhone (and iPad) app that lets you add dogs to any photo. Yes, it’s that simple. Take a photo. Add a dog. F***ing brilliant. Everybody else in the…

iPhone 5 – I Don’t Want a MASSIVE Screen!

I read an article on Business Insider earlier on. It was a piece by Henry Blodget who (aside from having an awesome name) is a genuinely insightful writer. But I was really disappointed to find what I consider to be…

Dear Google, Analytics on iPhone Would Be Nice

Dear Google, I use your Analytics platform (like millions of other people). Granted, I don’t pay the $150k a year to go Premium for the sake of an account manager. But I use your platform and you use my data…
