TWIST3D puts a new spin on the match-three genre

By Lory Gil on Feb 26, 2015

Traditional match-three games are usually presented on a flat screen with some kind of grid. Players usually flip tiles in order to make a match and point scores go up the more matches you make at one time.

TWIST3D is kind of not at all like that. It is a match-three game, but it is played on a rotating cube instead of a flat grid. You can’t flip tiles, but you can flip the entire cube. You earn the most points for matching tiles that have gems inside of them. Read More

Sling TV’s latest update lets jailbreakers in on the fun

By Jeff Benjamin on Feb 24, 2015

I can’t say for sure whether or not it was intentional, but ever since Dish’s Sling TV launched, I haven’t been able to view video on my iPhone 6 Plus.

In other words, this definitely wasn’t just a problem with my device.

Yesterday, Sling TV pushed an update that appears to have fixed the issue. Nothing has changed on my iPhone 6 Plus, but I can now watch Sling TV video from my jailbroken device. Coincidence? Read More
