iOS App of the Week: Stardust -- Movies and TV Video Reactions


Stardust is just the latest in a long list of apps trying to cash in on the viral trend of quick video clips and reaction videos. The several-seconds video fad made popular by Vine before its demise has been adopted by every large social media network, including Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.

Stardust is a social media app designed for users to share reactions, movie reviews and thoughts about popular media, like movies, television and trailers. After a quick sign up process users can upload 3- to 30-second videos letting the community know their thoughts on a movie they just watched or the latest episode of Game of Thrones.

iOS App of the Week: Galaxy of Pen & Paper

Galaxy of Pen & Paper is the follow-up to the 2012 meta RPG Knights of Pen & Paper and its less popular sequel. It is a turn-based title where players create their own game master and party of friends to go on an imaginary space journey. Players can explore distant planets, fight aliens and save galaxies all in the year 1999.

iOS App of the Week: Street Fighter IV Champion Edition

Street Fighter IV Champion Edition

Capcom has released several Street Fighter titles to the App Store with different degrees of success, however most haven't aged well. Popular titles like Street Fighter IV Volt quickly became obsolete as Apple devices advanced in technology and size, while Street Fighter X Tekken never really got off the ground. Older titles, such as the Street Fighter II Collection, are still out there, but until this week there has been no definitive Street Fighter title available for newer iOS devices.

iOS App of the Week: Last Day on Earth

Last Day on Earth

Last Day on Earth unforgivably tosses you in to the world without any shelter, tutorial or restart button. You will have to quickly learn how to survive by scavenging for sticks and rocks before zombies, starving wolves and other players kill you.

The new survival game from developer Andrey Pryakhin is a lot like Don't Starve where you need to scavenge and craft items to stay alive. The goal of the game is to build a home base to protect yourself from zombie hoards and other players looking to steal your supplies. You will die many times, and in the process lose everything you worked so hard to create. This is not only very frustrating, but it is what makes the game very addicting. There's a lot of trial and error involved, and you will make a lot of mistakes, but it's all worth it when you finally craft a large item, such as a shower.

iOS App of the Week: Pokémon Magikarp Jump

Pokémon Magikarp Jump

The Pokémon Company has launched another iOS game, hot on the heels of its successful release of Pokémon GO across the globe. Magikarp Jump features one of the most lowly, pathetic and useless Pokémon ever created. Incredibly, the entire game is all about raising the weak Magikarp into a truly majestic creature. Popular Pokémon such as Piplup and Pikachu will even appear to help your special Magikarp grow.
