Twirl to the music in Mindfork, a reflex arcade game

The controls in Mindfork are simple and intuitive, since it uses a two-button control scheme that anyone can pick up and master in a few minutes. Touch the left side of the screen to turn the arrow left, and the right side to turn right. Since the arrow will be constantly moving forward, it’s your job to make sure it steers clear of the white walls. If you crash, you just try again, but going near the walls will refill your defenses until it is full, so make sure to keep your armor up.


Like other arcade games, Mindfork is level-based, so you have to survive the current stage before moving on to the next one. Fortunately, even though there is a seamless transition from level-to-level in the game, you can continue from where you last left off from the level selection screen. The objective is pretty straightforward: avoid the walls and stay alive. At the moment, the game seems to only have 21 levels to go through, but there are some objectives that you can try to accomplish as well, which are easier said than done. The developer also promises more content coming soon, so there is something to look forward to.


Mindfork sports a clean design that oozes with minimalism. The flat aesthetic fits in well with the modernized iOS appearance and the use of vibrant colors with white looks gorgeous. Naturally, since the game has a lot of white in it, I would say that it looks slightly better with a device that has a white front on it, but I digress. Animations are insanely smooth and fluid as you play, and the ambient soundtrack is upbeat and immersive. In fact, you’ll find yourself playing to the rhythm of the music often, so this is one of those games you should get your good earbuds on for.


Over the years, I’ve come across many games for my iOS devices, ranging from simple puzzles to lengthy RPG adventures. However, one of my favorite types of mobile games to play are the reflex arcade games, because these are those titles that I can pick up and play in short bursts throughout the day. It’s been a while since I’ve come across one of these titles lately though, so naturally, when I saw Mindfork on the App Store last night, I had to give it a try for myself.


Mindfork ($0.99) by Zaubug is a music-based arcade game that tests your reflexes. If you enjoyed games like Pivvot and Duet Game, then you are bound to like what Mindfork has to offer.

The Best and Programs for Time Management

It doesn’t matter who you are or how you earn a living, you probably have problems with time management. Even people who take pride in managing their lives like clockwork can be tardy, tend to forget goals and have problems with putting things off. There are numerous reasons for 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 fashionable. In the following article we will show you how to use your iPhone or iPad as a tool for time management instead of as a time management unit of destruction.

Get Instapaper. Instapaper is a program which can be used on your iPhone, your iPad and even on your pc. It’s one of those “read later” applications that helps you save time. How frequently during the day do you run into an interesting article or web site that you seriously want to explore but don’t have the time to dedicate to it? How many times have you thrown a wrench into your schedule because you read or looked into it anyway (because you knew you wouldn’t remember it later on)? Instapaper integrates with Twitter and other applications to allow you to save all of those links so that you can read it later on. All the links get saved to one main account. This makes it easy to use any device you want (laptop, tablet or mobile phone) to catch up on those links when you actually have the time for them.

Wunderlist is an incredible software. It’s your basic to-do list software but it doesn’t get caught up in a bunch of heavy graphics or a complex user interface. Each day it is possible to sit down to this application and then enter all of the things that you need to do during the day. The app is free. In addition to being user friendly, it is easy to sync with numerous devices. If you can train yourself to check your software as frequently as you check your email, you will find it much easier to keep yourself on task.

Evernote is incredibly useful. It is a centralized location in which you can manage your random thoughts, your pictures, your downloads, your emails, and so forth. It can be synced between devices–including a personal computer–and is very easy to incorporate with other software like Wunderlist. The only real drawback to this application is that it’s not free. Your monthly subscription may be paid either every month at $5 each or every year for $45 a year.

Agenda is a must have calendar software. This is true for all types of different reasons but the major reason you need this is you could sync it both to iCalendar (the calendar Macs and Apple products use) and Google calendar. This makes the management of your calendar simpler, particularly for individuals with PCs and iPhones as they just have to type in their information into a single, central location and it can be accessed on a bunch of other devices. In addition, it looks great.

You’ll find all kinds of time management programs you can download. We believe these are the best but if you do a little homework you’ll find plenty of others.
