Blizzard finally brings its combat strategy game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, to even smaller screens. It's now available on iOS Universal so it'll work on your iPhone as well as on Android tablets and phones. The smartphone version gets a redesigned interface to make it easier to play on the smaller displays. Since there are a lot of cards on the board at any given time, what Blizzard did for the phone is you can only see half of the cards at a time, and you can just tap on them to see zoomed-in version of the cards.
The great thing is you can play the full game right from your mobile device. It even supports Naxxramas and Blackrock Mountain expansions. But these are sold separately. And it also syncs with your account on Blizzard's Battle.net system, so no matter where you play, it'll count towards your stats. However, this means you have to be online to play the game even if it's just against the AI.
Microsoft is staying true to its policy of bringing more of its apps and services to other platforms. This time their bringing Office Lens app to Android and iOS. The app turns your camera into a scanner and lets you make the photographed document into an editable file. You can store the photographed file into OneNote or on OneDrive. You can save the file as either a Word file, PowerPoint presentation, or PDF file. For Android though, the app is still in beta. You can try it out here if you want to.
You gotta love Microsoft's new direction of making sure their best software is available to users on any device and any platform. It seems their voice assistant Cortana is being readied to transcend platforms and has been confirmed to be headed to iPhones, iPads and Android devices as well as Windows 10 PCs.
Cortana is expected to come as a standalone app to rival operating systems in the fall (sorry, no BlackBerry version is planned). This will give users on iOS and Android anoter option to Siri or Google Now.
