Well folks the time has finally came — Apple has finally released iOS 8 that boasts a brand new Health app along with a lot of other new features. As it stands, the lowest supported models are the iPhone 4S, iPad 2nd Generation, and the iPod Touch 5th Generation. From recent reports, iPhone 4S users are suggested to not upgrade to iOS 8 due to it being slower than just iOS 6 or iOS 7. Most notably, iOS 8 users can now install 3rd party keyboards like Swype and others that come in different configurations. For those looking to upgrade to iOS 8 right now, you’ll want to have at least 5GB of space free on your device and make sure everything is backed up to iCloud or iTunes. As of now it’s hard to say if or when a jailbreak will be released for iOS 8, however, give it sometime and we’ll most likely seem a demo or teaser video hopefully. Just a couple days ago the folks at iDownload Blog reported that the PanguTeam is working on an iOS 8 jailbreak, but there’s no ETA. But without any further to do, be sure to check out the full list of iOS 8 direct download links by reading the rest of this article. Read the rest of this article ->

Not long after the iPhone 6 being made available to public today, it’s already been subjected to the fateful drop test thanks to our good friend and reader, Jack (@triggywiggy). Described as “the best unboxing ever” by some, while Jack was opening the box on live TV, the iPhone fell out onto the concrete and luckily survived. So does the iPhone 6 pass an accidental drop test? We think it’s safe to say that it does.
Veteran mobile game developer Tequila Games, best known for their free-to-play games, have recently announced their newest digital collectible card game Earthcore: Shattered Elements on iOS for iPad and iPhone. Promising to bring a new experience to the collectible card game genre, Earthcore: Shattered Elements introduces a unique new gameplay feature dubbed “Card Crafting”. Utilizing cards in their collection, players can fuse cards together and create brand new cards, therefore adding over 500,000 strategic gameplay possibilities to their deck.
Earthcore: Shattered Element’s gameplay further refreshes the genre through its “Elemental” battle system. Based on the universally familiar “rock, paper, scissors” game, players collect cards, construct their decks and take control of fire, water and nature elements to defeat their others in duels. As well as the Elemental battle system, a new risk-based gameplay aspect also increases the possibilities into Earthcore: Shattered Elements by assigning a “risk” value to each card. The more special skills a card features, the higher its risk value and the higher the loss caused to the player if they are defeated, meaning that players must gamble which cards to use on each turn.
“Following on from our history of creating successful casual games, Earthcore: Shattered Elements represents a big step forward and a very significant investment for Tequila Games. We are targeting both mid and hardcore players with a AAA title in a genre our team knows and loves” said Lukas Deszczulka, CEO, Tequila Games. “We’re currently working with some very experienced tabletop game design experts to innovate the CCG genre and we’ve invested heavily in the single player story-driven campaign which is often neglected in games of this type. We’re sure that both new and experienced players alike will find Earthcore:Shattered Elements very different to anything that they’ve played before.”
In addition, Earthcore: Shattered Elements features a story-driven, single player campaign as well as a multiplayer mode for player vs player duels, leagues and championships. Last but certainly not least, the developers plan on regularly updating the game with new monthly “chapter” updates to the single-player campaign as well as releasing new cards and skills. For now this is all the information we have available, however, we’ll keep you updated as time progresses. Read the rest of this article ->
