    Super Mario Run Will Hop Onto iOS on December 15

    When Nintendo made a surprise appearance at the iPhone 7 launch to reveal Super Mario Run, they weren’t ready to say when the game would be released and were clear that the game would rely on an up-front price instead of microtransactions.

    iOS 10 Will Have New Diverse Women Emoji

    We were pretty stoked to learn the Unicode, with some urging from Google, had put the finishing touches on a new system that would provide man and woman versions of each human emoji.

    Here’s Everything That Happened at WWDC 2016

    It’s always nice to see companies get keynotes and press conferences down to a science.

    FBI Breaks Into iPhone Without Apple’s Help

    It would appear the tables have turned in Apple’s legal fight with the FBI over access to the iPhone 5c used by Syed Farook, the deceased gunman of last year’s San Bernardino terrorist attack.

    Nintendo Releases Their Very First Smartphone App

    A move a couple years in the making has finally happened — Nintendo has moved into mobile, and we’re not talking about the 3DS.

    Trump Dump App Lets You Poop On the Donald

    I think deep down, Donald Trump would have to be pleased with Trump Dump, a game that has been released for iOS and Android. The game really does mirror his candidacy in a poetic way — it’s a low-effort affair made for a short-term cash-in on popular opinion. I’ll just tell myself it was intentional. […]

    Millions of Chinese Users Affected by App Store Hack

    When we hear about malicious code in mobile apps, it’s usually from Android apps downloaded from sources other than Google Play, abusing the open source nature of Android while getting around Google’s vetting process.

    Apple’s biggest event of the year is happening this week, and while the Worldwide Developers Conference is far from over, the Tim Cook-led keynote went down today.

    Microsoft Brings Office Lens to Android and iOS Devices for Free

    Microsoft launched Office Lens last year on Windows Phone to much acclaim.
