App of the Week: TweetDeck

TweetDeck
Publisher: Twitter
Platform: PC, iOS
Price: Free!

So, this isn't really an app. Not in the traditional sense. There's no official app available in either the iOS or Android stores. Instead, there's only the website. But this website kicks all kinds of ass. Especially if you're the type of masochist that finds themselves managing multiple Twitter accounts.

The idea of TweetDeck is to manage multiple Twitter accounts from one easy-to-use interface without the need for logging in and out of said accounts. So, in my case, I can track my personal account, a show account, and the network account. What's really nice is that I don't have to post a tweet from one account and then retweet it across the other two. Instead, I can check all three accounts and send the same tweet with one click.

The Burger Gourmet: Lucy's #7 Cheddar, Bacon, BBQ Burger

Lucy's #7
Location: Beloit, WI
Ingredients: Cheddar cheese, bacon, fried onions, BBQ sauce


Alright kids, you know the drill by now. New restaurant equals a burger. Though, it kind of makes it super easy when the new place is known as a burger joint.

Lucy's is not the kind of place that I would expect to find in Beloit, but then again, I'm not sure what is in Beloit. I've only traveled there for work meetings. So, when a farmer's market turns into a tasty burger, my attention is grabbed. Lucy's is a retro inspired, high class without the high price, burger joint. Complete with pin ups. It's kind of amazing.

App of the Week: Bluk

Bluk
Publisher: Pixel Ape
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!

Okay. So, I may have a problem. It seems that the large majority of games that catch my attention on the mobile platforms seem to revolve around simplistic pixel art. The game could play like an absolute wreck and I would be none the wiser, because I'm enamored with the pretty visuals.

So, here, have another one. Bluk is easy enough to get into, but gets fairly difficult the further one gets into it. Using catapult physics, the objective is to hurl the little cube from tower to tower. Pull back with a finger to set the arc and strength, then release. If done correctly, the little cube will land delicately on top of the tower. Rinse and repeat until the end of the level.

The music is soothing and easy to enter a trance as the levels fly by. As with any free-to-play game, there are items and abilities available for purchase. If you're a fan of pixel art and like puzzles, Bluk may be for you.

App of the Week: Baikoh

Baikoh
Publisher: Mum Not Proud
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!

Word games. Insults. A simplistic theme. Tell me, Baikoh, were you created just for me?

The premise is simple. Letter tiles fall from the top of the screen and will being to fill it up. Tap letters to spell words and clear the board. If the letter pile reaches the top of the screen, it's game over.

But, if that were all there was, it would be pretty boring. And Baikoh is not boring. It likes to punish players who misspell. It's a game that actively wants the player to lose. Different hampering abilities and tiles will fall along with the letters, that can freeze the board, block progress, and otherwise make the player's life a living hell.

To help the player along their journey, there are power ups to collect and use in each match, so it's not an entirely unfair fight. Not entirely.

As with most of the apps I recommend, Baikoh is totally free. If you like word games, give it a whirl.

App of the Week: Offline Survival Manual

Offline Survival Manual
Publisher: Iigi
Platform: Android
Price: Free!

Let's face it. At some point in life, all of us have thought about the remote chance of being dumped in the middle of nowhere. Lost, alone, and left to fend for ourselves. What would you do? I certainly have no idea. I can only imagine there would be a lot of crying.

Well, if you have an Android device, and adequate prep time, or hopefully a full battery, the Offline Survival Manual may be just the trick. This app is packed full of survival-y goodness. Things like building shelter, providing basic first aid, and even elements of psychology can be found within!

Now, it may all be good, or it could ultimately lead to certain death. I'm not a survival expert. Either way, it provides an interesting read. And since it's free, what's there to lose? Certainly not your life, right?

App of the Week: YouTube Kids

YouTube Kids
Publisher: Google
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!

What did we do before the age of the Internet and television when it came to getting the kids out of our hair for a few hours? Was there ever a time when children played outside or ran off with friends to have adventures? Is it just me or are the little buggers born with touch-enabled devices attached to their little grabbers?

Well, I suppose it doesn't much matter. It's the way of the future! Kids and tablets! Kids and phones! Kids and all the abhorrent things the Internet has to offer.

I'll be the first to admit that my YouTube account curates some fairly screwy videos. As such, I wasn't inclined to let my toddler use it to watch videos of monster trucks, trains, and nursery rhymes. After all, who knows what will pop up on the auto play? On the flip side of that, going into YouTube without any account can be just as dangerous due to what is trending. As such, when it came time to binge watch hours of monster trucks squishing cars, I had to take control of what was playing next. And, as any parent will tell you, most children's programming is absolutely mind-numbing (except you, Haunted House Monster Truck).

So, when I stumbled upon a dedicated YouTube Kids app, I was thrilled. The app will curate videos in selected age groups, plays them in full screen, and allows downloading for offline viewing (perfect for car rides!). Additionally, it is tied to the parent's YouTube account, so there is a full record of what has been played. Search can be turned off, and the additional parental controls are easy to configure.

It's been great for my little guy and he hasn't had a complaint when using it on a phone or tablet. My only complaint is that Peppa Pig is now slowly invading my life.

App of the Week: Authentic Weather

Authentic Weather
Publisher: House of van Schneider
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!

Since getting a smart phone, I've found the one thing I'm always on the hunt for is a decent weather app. I've tried so many that I've lost count and they all fall short in one way or another. Either they're too cluttered with information or they lack basic information or there are intrusive ads or the layout is just awful. It's too much. Just tell me the fucking weather and look good while you do it.

Well, hello Authentic Weather. I didn't see you over there. AW is the most straight forward and sassy weather app I've had the pleasure of using. After finding your location, AW will give you a summary of the weather. As I write this, it says "It's fucking cloudy. You can look outside to get more information." It's very astute.

Pulling down from the top gives a little more info about the forecast in addition to the temperature. It will display the weather for today, tomorrow, and whenever. Purchasing the full version of the app unlocks the ability to add a photo (via camera) to the forecast and share it on social media.

While it doesn't have the bells and whistles of so many other weather apps, Authentic Weather also lacks all the bullshit. While it may not be the weather app I check right away, it's still the one I check most often.

Loyal readers will know that I'm terribly torn on mobile gaming. I greatly enjoy playing games, but there is such a distinct lack of quality games available for phones and tablets. If something becomes mildly popular, there are so many knock-offs and shovelware created, it creates bloat in the marketplace. For the most part, I've given up on mobile gaming. I'd much rather use my phone or tablet to be productive (crap, I think I'm turning into an adult). That being said, every now and then, a gem comes along.

App of the Week: LastPass Authenticator

LastPass Authenticator
Publisher: LastPass
Platform: Android, iOS
Price: Free!


Security is super important when dealing with anything on the Internet. In addition to having a strong password, it's always smart to enable two-factor authentication if you are able to. Some providers will allow this through a text message sent to a designated phone number. Others rely on an authenticator app to provide a randomly generated pass code.

I already trust LastPass with my life essentially. So, trusting them as my two-factor authenticator was a no-brainer. Setup is easy. When enabling two-factor on an online account, a QR code will be presented. Line it up with the camera within the LastPass Authenticator app and the account will be added. Should that not be an option, you also have the choice to manually add an account via a code. The app can be secured with a PIN or fingerprint, helping to beef up security.

LastPass Authenticator is easy to use and it comes from a company I already trust. If you're serious about your security, definitely install this.

I have a problem. At one point, I was in a very abusive relationship with a game. World of Warcraft consumed my life for several years. It was all I would play, all I did, all I would talk about, and all I would dream about. It started with a friend letting me try out his account. The night elf dance and Hogger quests sucked me in. I quickly acquired my own days later. It eventually got to the point where I ran my own private server.
