Doodle Jump at release was probably in the running for one of the greatest apps ever made at launch, however, does the app still hold a place on your mobile device several years on, or has this golden oldies time come?

Doodle jump today can be seen as one of the most simplest games out there on the app store, being compatible with almost every mobile device, and an easy to use control scheme makes it perhaps overly simple. However, when this app was released onto the apple store in 2009, this ‘simply’ wasn’t the case.

Infact, the app was one of the ‘first of a kind’ games to make use of the iPhones gyroscope features, as tilting the device was initially the only control used, which would tilt your on screen doodle side to side, in an attempt to try and bounce him off one of the many different types of platforms. The aim of the game was to climb as high as possible, which may initially seem like an easy task, however, as the distance you climb increases, the number of platforms to bounce off decrease’s. The goal,  beat your previous scores, and any of those that your friends had set.

The easy to learn game as since become a powerhouse of its own, as since that initial release, dosens of features and updates have been implemented onto the game, which includes different themes which alter the cosmetics of the game, and new abilities and powerups.

With this all in mind, it allows the app to stay at the top of the pile.

Pacman 80′s is an app available for download on the windows 8 store, the app is a simple downloadable game, that is available to users for free.

If you have ever played any pacman games before, then you already know the score, if not, where have you been for the last 40 years? The highly addictive game become a craze in the 80′s and has been going hard since, although modern games obviously can dwarf pacman in terms of scale, depth and graphics, there is something about those old 16bit ghosts that can bring a smile to your face.

The aim is simple, guide your on screen pacman, a chirpy yellow people, into all the on screen dots with the use of the keyboard directions, sounds simple ey? Well, in case you missed my last paragraph, there are ghosts! That’s right! Ghosts were even cool back in the 80′s, but these aren’t the sort of ghosts you will see in modern games that scare you away from ever wanting to touch video games again, these simple sprites just move around the screen, if your spite collides with them, game over!

Seeing as this is a port of the original, there aren’t any other features that you will see on modern pacman remakes, so let me move on tok how the game runs. The gameplay is very fluent and functional, however, I did have a few problems when pacman got caught by a ghost, the game froze, not only my game, but the entire computer, which is a serious crime for and app here at daily apps,

However, overall, when this app functions, it will cause dejavu to anyone who remembers the original arcade version. A must get for nostalgia fans.

Hello guys, here are daily apps we are pleased to share with you our first every windows 8 app review, so please enjoy reading through this article and reading the review, thank you!

Daily horoscopes is one of the simplest apps that horoscope lovers, or even people only just getting into the horoscope craze, could get. The app is name holds up to its promise, just like this site, and releases a different horoscope daily as we do with our apps, every different one of the 12 zodiac signs has a new one everyday.

That’s all there is to the app, however, with windows 8, no horoscope app comes with it, and this is the simplest and most to the point one I’ve found. There are a couple of extra little quirky features this app bears, such as the criteria’s that your persona should match depending on your star symbol, but other then that, don’t go looking for anything but the bare bones basics with this.

A good app that I would suggest as an essential for horoscope beginners or people who need the feature with a limited amount of space on there computer.

I’ve been a huge fan of Boxee for managing my entire media library. But a lot of people I talk to always seem to be telling me, why not use the built in Media Center in Windows? Windows Media Center does have an excellent interface and is easy to use, but so far Boxee’s integration with the web to download details of the plot, reviews, trailers etc. for movies was what kept me hooked onto it.

But to fret no more, the built in Windows Media Center can also do the same, thanks to a third party app that lets you download Trailers from iTunes and other websites, Media Info, High Quality pictures etc.

To begin with download MediaBrowser, and install it on your PC. Once you are done, fire it up and you should be looking at a screen like the one shown below.

MediaBrowserConfig

Add the required folders to your media collection, and Media Browser should then do all the dirty work for you. Alternatively you can also add/configure various plugins for Media Browsers. To do select the plug-ins tab.

mediabrowserplugins

There’s also advanced configuration options that lets you personalize your Media Center experience. For more of this, click the advanced option in Media Browser

advanced_config

All said and done, start Windows Media Center and select ‘Media Browser‘ from the home screen.

mediabrowserselectwindows7mediacenter

Windows Media Center should now be presenting you, your entire media library in its full glory. Click around to enjoy.

What do you think of Media Browser? Finally I believe that Boxee has a decent competitor but yes the Social features of Boxee will be hard to replicate. For those of you who enjoy Media Center already, Media Browser is a worthy extension to your Movie Watching experience.

For long I’ve considered the Mac Mini from Apple as a candidate for my future Home Media Server. The Mac Mini has always been an iconic device with its neat and minimal design. However with the release of Inspiron Zino HD from Dell, I’ve given up on the Mac Mini unless Apple comes up with a radically better Mac Mini than the existing one in the market.

In short the Inspiron Zino HD is a small PC that packs quite a punch in an 8′ by 8′ square. And the best part is that it’ll make an awesome device to have in your living room. So what does the Zino HD come with?

Well for starters, it comes with tons of customization options on the Hardware configuration just as you’d expect otherwise from Dell. The base model starts at 299$ and here is what the PC comes with (or can be configured with)

  • It comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit or Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
  • You can customize the PC with 7 solid colors.
  • You can customize the PC with 3 designs.
  • The Inspiron Zino HD uses AMD’s Athlon processor (single or dual core).
  • The base configuration is 3GB of RAM, but can be configured with 4, 6, and 8GB of RAM with 8GB being the max.
  • Storage shouldn’t be a problem with your choice of 500GB, 640GB, 750GB, or 1TB 7200rpm SATA hard drives.
  • You can choose either a DVD +/- RW drive or Blu-ray drive.
  • For graphics, you can choose either an integrated ATI Radeon HD3200 or discrete ATI Radeon HD 4330 with 512MB of dedicated memory.
  • It has HDMI and VGA ports.
  • A 4-in-1 media card reader and integrated gigabit Ethernet are both standard.
  • It has integrated 2.1 High Definition audio with the choice of going with a Sound Blaster X-Fi High Definition audio from Creative.
  • For your wireless needs, you can choose either a Dell 1397 802.11 b/g wireless card or Dell 1520 802.11 b/g/n wireless card.

What Makes the Inspiron Zino HD the best choice for a Home Media Center?

  • Extremely good storage options.
  • Connectivity through HDMI will allow you to connect to HDTV.
  • Good expandable options, so you can easily connect a TV Tuner card, to record TV.

And with the upcoming Boxee for Windows which will be on the same level as Boxee for Mac/Linux in the coming few months. However the upcoming Boxee box is also something I’m looking forward to.

But the Inspiron Zino HD is just too irresistible for my tastes and would love to own one of these cute PC’s to have in my living room. Wish Dell just had a nice little remote to give like the Apple Remote!
