App of the month January 2016

Create or watch a live stream with an innovative new app, or relax and have some fun playing the newest Cut the Rope game with the January app of the month.


This new app, which has partnered with Twitter, allows anyone to create their own live stream and share it with the world. So you can hold your camera and record what you’re doing or seeing, and anyone who is using the app can tune in and see it too. While you might not find sharing your life with millions of strangers overly appealing, it can be fun to tune in and see what some of the other 10 million users are up to.

The streams you can watch on the app vary from the people going about their daily lives (cooking or shopping) to more unique events (live concerts or feeding time at the zoo) and the completely bizarre, such as a large sidewalk puddle in London which, a few weeks ago, attracted over 20,000 viewers. 

It’s a fun way to pass some time and if you’ve ever wondered what life is like in another country, it’s a great way to find out. I just watched some Russian University students studying between classes… I think.

Available for free on iPhone, iPad and Android.

Cut the Rope: Magic

The original Cut the Rope has over 750 million downloads, and the newest sequel is a just as fun, featuring new mechanics that have greatly improved the game.

The premise of the game is simple and remains unchanged (if you haven’t played the original, you can get it here), Om Nom (the adorable little monster) wants to eat candy but he needs your help to do so. By cutting ropes and activating objects you must get the candy into his mouth. This new instalment allows Om Nom to transform into different magical forms to aid his quest for candy. It’s really addictive and you’ll be surprised by how challenging the game can get as you move through the levels.

Available for $0.99 on iPhone and iPad, and for free on Android.
