Join colors together in Pokaboo, a charming puzzler

Controlling the ghost in the game is simple and intuitive. Just swipe your finger on the screen in the direction that you want to move. Since you are a ghost in the game, you have the ability to move through the walls and come out on the other side, so that’s an important mechanic to keep in mind as you play. As you get further along in the game, you’ll see more complicated layouts and mechanics that will put your brain to work.


Like other puzzle games, Pokaboo is level-based, and players must progress by solving the puzzles one-by-one. There are five chapters at the moment, with 20 stages in each. To gain access to later level packs, you have to earn enough clears or stars, which is easier said than done. The goal of the game is to have the ghost push the blobs of color and merge the like-colored ones together to clear them out. While it sounds like an easy task, with the restricted number of moves to get a star, the game proves to be a nice challenge.


Pokaboo features a super minimal look and feel to it, which I adore. Seriously, sometimes less is more, and that is just the case with Pokaboo. The game makes use of both dark and vibrant colors that are rich and crisp on Retina displays, and there is still a nice amount of charm with the ghost character sprite. Animations are smooth and fluid, and there is a whimsical soundtrack to go along with it all.


When it comes to mobile games, one of my favorite genres are puzzles. This is due to the fact that they are the games that make me use my brain and think of the best solutions, which keeps me busy for a long time. Earlier today, I reviewed Zombie Match Defense, which is a great little gem for match-three and tower defense fans. But what if you want something that requires a bit more brainpower? To go in line with the Halloween theme, there is Pokaboo, another worthy addition to your collection.


Pokaboo ($2.99) by GlobZ is a charming puzzle game that is fit for the Halloween season that is just around the corner. If you enjoyed cute games like Pudding Monsters, then you are bound to get a kick out of Pokaboo.

The Best and Programs for Time Management

Nearly everyone has issues with time management–no matter who they are or what they do for a living. Even those who try to run their lives like clockwork can have issues staying on task, being on time and remembering the things they must do every day. A lot of things contribute to this. The primary reason this is true is that there are hundreds of distractions just sitting at our fingertips daily, which has become even more true since smart phones and tablets got to be popular. In the following article we will show you how to use your iPhone or iPad as a tool for time management rather than as a time management unit of destruction.

Take advantage of Instapaper. Instapaper is an application which you can use on your iPhone, your iPad and even on your desktop. It is one of those “read later” applications which helps you save time. In the daytime how many times do you come across a bunch an article or a site that you really would like to get into but don’t have the time to do so properly? How frequently have you thrown off your whole schedule by reading or taking a look at it anyway because you knew you wouldn’t remember it later on? Instapaper can be incorporated with Twitter and several other applications and save all of the links you would like to explore for a later time. All the links get saved to one primary account. It means that you can use any device (mobile phone, tablet, and computer) to catch up on your reading when you’ve got the time.

Wunderlist is a fantastic app. It is your basic to-do list app but it doesn’t get caught up in a bunch of heavy graphics or a complex interface. Every day you can take a moment with this software and enter all of the things that you have to do that day. It’s absolutely free. You’ll be able to sync it to various devices and it is simple to operate. All you must do is train yourself to check this application as frequently as you check your email and you will see just how easy it is to stay on task.

Evernote is super great and handy. It’s a central place to organize just about everything: your emails, downloads, photos, notes, thoughts, etc. It syncs between devices (including your desktop computer) and is easy to integrate with other applications, like Wunderlist. The only real downside of this application is that it isn’t absolutely free. You can pay a monthly subscription fee of five dollars or buy a year of service for forty five dollars.

Agenda is the must have calendar app. There are several reasons this is true but the primary reason it is true is that it could be synced both to iCalendar (the calendar iPhones and Macs use) and Google Calendar. This makes managing a calendar much simpler for folks who have PCs and iPhones because they will only have to enter their information into one place and it is accessible on all their devices. It’s also really pretty.

You will find all sorts of time management applications you can download. These are the most effective, but you are going to turn up lots more with some additional research.
