Off The Shelf/App a Week

The App & Mobile Case Study Book
Authors: Ed Rob Ford and Julius Wiedermann
Publishers: Taschen

If you have an appetite for Apps then we have a journey for you!

Rad Dad Collective have hooked up with Taschen Publishing to bring you an 'App a Week', a new feature exploring the world of Apps and what's on offer in the labyrinth of the online shop.

The inspiration came when we received a copy of The App & Mobile Case Study Book. Impressed by the number of Applications on the market which use an assortment of mobile device technologies, big and small.

These include:
⁍AIR                    ⁍ Ovi 
⁍iPad                   ⁍ Symbian
⁍iPhone               ⁍Blackberry
⁍mobile website   ⁍Windows name a few.

We delve through the dense jungle of the Apps which are featured in this particular title and pick some of the forbidden and non-forbidden fruits of the metaphorical web trees within.

The categories that this adventure covers are:

Equipped with all the technical devices we can muster and lots of anti-virus shots, we venture into the unknown and our first feature.

Quote: From BadmanMonkey, a UK user
"This is the most polished and professional game I've played on the iPhone. 
Great visuals, good voice acting and tons of gameplay.
This is a high quality 'Eve' - like space combat and trading game of the highest quality.
Buy it and then get out there and explore the universe"
