NightSky, one of the most beautiful and creative physics-based iOS games ever, is now free

If you’re looking for a fun and creative game for you iPhone or iPad, look no further. NightSky is easily one of the most beautiful and original iOS games we have ever seen, having received plenty of critical acclaim and several GDC awards. The concept is simple: transport a mysterious sphere through boards by swiping on the screen to spin. Swipe up to reverse gravity and swipe down to return gravity to normal. Obstacles lie in your path, so you must find ways around them or put them to use. And the entire game is set atop wonderful art with silhouettes and shapes reminiscent of a Tim Burton movie. More →

How to take infinitely better smartphone photos in 5 minutes for $15

Over the past few years, cameras on modern smartphones have become shockingly impressive. Well, some of them have, at least.

We see people walking into each other and into stationary objects all the time on trips to and from our Times Square office. Is there nothing that can save these poor souls from awkward collisions?
