What's the next best thing to fighting in a game? Managing the fighting, of course. Some might even say it's better that way as the experience can be deeper and more varied than a button-mashing fighter. Punch Club puts you in the role of a young boxer as you level up, participate in fights, and search for the man who killed your father. Read More

BillGuard is a service for tracking your spending and monitoring your credit, and an Android app is available in the Play Store that lets you do all of this from your phone. Soon you won't have the option to do so any other way. BillGuard has sent out an email to users stating that the web app will go away at the end of the month. Read More
Considering its reliance on many, many balls, Verizon's latest network comparison ad is fairly innocuous. It uses statistics from a Root Metrics study to boast about Verizon's wireless coverage and performance in relation to its competitors AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The ad is obviously intended to make Verizon look good, and the combination of a condescending voice-over and an elaborate visualization are particularly disparaging to the cheaper, smaller networks.

Samsung and Apple take swipes at each other. The two companies are sort of like mobile carriers in that regard. It surprises precisely no one to see them bickering this many years after taking one another to court (something they're still doing, by the way). Read More
No one would mistakenly believe that T-Mobile wants the competition to succeed, but it does tend to take things to the next level. The carrier has been very vocal about its dislike of the other guys, and today brings two more proofs of that. Read More
Look, Butterscotch Shenanigans makes some pretty nifty looking games. They're all crazy over-the-top, vibrant, and brilliantly scripted pieces of art, even. You know, stuff like Quadropus Rampage and Towelfight 2: Monocle of Destiny. Or Flop Rocket. How can you not like something called Flop Rocket? (Disclaimer: I've never played Flop Rocket.)
Anyway, today, the company's newest game, Crashlands, is crash landing onto Android. It's also available on Steam and iOS, if you're into that kind of thing. Read More
Wake up! Wakey wakey... It's time to rise and shine. Come on, wake up silly! I said wake up! Argh. It's like you're ignoring me on purpose. What's this ridiculous game we keep playing bruh? You ask me to do something for you every morning and I'm always up and at'em because you need me to. Then you're all about not even listening to me. And you have the nerve to hate me for actually doing my job! Ungrateful human. Oh wake up, please. Sigh. I hate this game.
I bet you don't do this to your other apps. They probably notify you and you're instantly all over them to see what they want. Read More
