To-Fu Fury

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 made its official debut on Steam on Friday, but there has been zero news about a mobile release. You can purchase the game now for $7.99 through Steam (Windows only) or wait until it arrives on the App Store.

Our App of the Week, Qbert Rebooted includes the original classic, plus an updated 3D version of the game with new characters and villians. The game is free to download with an option to upgrade to an ad-free version for $0.99.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 goes live on Steam ahead of App Store release

Five Nights at Freddy's 4

There's been all kinds of rumors floating around about the official release date for Five Nights at Freddy's 4, but so far none of them have been true because the game shockingly popped up on Steam today.

Here's the trailer and official synopsis for the game:

iOS App of the Week: Qbert Rebooted

Qbert Rebooted

If Pac-Man is the Madonna of 80s video games, then Q*bert is the Cyndi Lauper. The little orange guy was quirky, extremely popular and the star of one of the most merchandised arcade games of that era, but he’s never been able to achieve the same commercial success as some of his peers outside of his decade. Maybe it's because he only speaks Q-Bertese, or that he swears too much, but whatever the reason Q*bert deserves better. That's why it is nice to that him and his friends have made their way to the Apple App Store. Being part of the Apple ecosystem is so much nicer than the last time we saw Q*bert begging for Pac-Man cherries in Wreck-It Ralph.

Apple releases record Q3 earnings report, stock tumbles

Apple releases Q3 FY 2015 earnings report.

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) released its third quarter financial results yesterday after the market closed and, despite more record breaking numbers, share prices took a nose dive in after hours trading, losing a bit over 7%.

View full conversations in quick reply with Couria

Quick reply is a useful feature in iOS 8, however it can leave iPhone owners in the dark. Normally the quick reply screen shows the only last message received and a keyboard. The jailbreak tweak Couria enhances quick reply by displaying the entire conversation thread. Not only this, but once installed the tweak can be customized and used with Activator.
