Arma Tactics THD Review: Like Chess With Guns... And Frustration, And Confusion, And Swearing

PC gamers know the ARMA series as wickedly difficult, painstakingly accurate military shooters - the thinking man's (or possibly masochist's) alternative to the likes of Call of Duty. For its first full mobile game, ARMA is eschewing the first person shooter genre in favor of a tactical game: a top-down, turn-based combat system where strategy wins over speed and reflexes.

[Hands-On] Fleksy Keyboard Has Some Interesting Tricks, But Definitely Still Beta

Back at CES 2013, a start up touted its new on-screen keyboard as the solution to typing on touchscreens.

Swype Moves Up To Version 1.5.6, Improves Word Predictions, Fixes Annoying HTC One Bug

Swype is far from an unfamiliar face in the mobile world. It has served some of the finest Android phones as an included keyboard, permitting one-handed writers to swipe out words rather than peck away with their thumbs.
