The Simpsons: Tapped Out pokes fun at itself while you tap away

The Simpsons has always been a clever, self-aware cartoon, so it shouldn’t be that surprising that the franchise’s world-building app, The Simpsons: Tapped Out, also features meta-humor prominently. But given the limitations of a Sim City-lite take on Springfield’s favorite family, does the game risk overexposing its own flaws? In the early going, it certainly […]

Law & Order Legacies is more like interactive TV than adventure gaming

Law & Order Legacies, a new point-and-click iOS adventure title by Telltale Games, has me in a quandary. The 20-year fan in me wants to unabashedly endorse, even love, this opportunity to enter the action with a mash-up “all-star” cast from the original TV classic and SVU. But, as a game, especially one with major […]

CBS Fall Preview for iPad introduces five new shows

If you got too wrapped up in all the “Two and a Half Men” shenanigans, you might not know that CBS has some new programming on its slate for the fall season, including the much-hyped “2 Broke Girls” and Michael Emerson’s return to TV in “Person of Interest.” To promote its new season, CBS has […]

Shark Week Live iPhone app a handy chum to the TV celebration

The future of apps and TV appear to be totally interconnected, at least if the Shark Week Live app is any indication. While there have been other apps that interact with your TV directly, like the Xfinity iPad app that lets you watch OnDemand programming or view the on-screen guide right on your iPad screen, […]

HGTV to GO iPad app’s bugs mar clean design

HGTV might be known for its high standards in design, but despite its many programs centered on creating smart, functional spaces, app HGTV to GO for iPad isn’t up to snuff. The biggest problem I experienced when using HGTV to GO on original iPad is a persistent low-memory error warning that the app might crash […]

Curb Your Enthusiasm with these pretty, pretty, pretty good iPhone apps

Season 8 of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm is finally here! While subscribers can tap in to the show from HBO Go on their iPhones, iPads and Android devices, hardcore fans should take a second, third or fourth look at these mobile apps that will make you think you have died, gone to heaven and then eventually […]

Daytime TV iPhone apps for a post-Oprah world

It’s been two weeks since Oprah aired the last episode of her namesake talk show, and the withdrawals are intense. Months worth of empty afternoons stretch before us like the Sahara Desert. But before you haul your flat screen out to the curb consider this – there are other daytime television options. Good ones, in […]

Turn your iPad into a TV with Time Warner’s TWCable TV app

It’s been a long time coming, but Time Warner Cable has came through with a killer app that finally lets people watch live TV channels on their iPad. While not perfect, it’s an excellent start, and I’m hopeful that we’ll see significant improvements in the coming weeks. So what does the free TWCable TV app […]

Little content worth exploring in Discovery Channel HD for iPad

The Discovery Channel has taken its existing app for iPhone and turned it into iPad-specific format through the app Discover Channel HD. Although I’m a fan of the Discovery Channel’s programming, there’s minimal content available in this app, and that makes it, ultimately, not worth a download. I can say that what is right in […]

Adult Swim iPad app doesn’t make a splash

If you hadn’t heard that Adult Swim, the adult-centric block of programming shown on Cartoon Network’s channel late at night, offers a universal app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, don’t worry, you aren’t missing anything. Chock-full of bugs, watching a show via the Adult Swim app (its main component) gave me a headache, and […]

Bar Karma, Current TV’s newest drama series, which premiered earlier this month, is taking crowd-sourcing to a whole new level, with its producers allowing viewers to submit their own […]
