Fantastical 2 is a great alternative to the Apple Calendar. It has strong natural language understanding, so on the iPhone you can type "lunch with John on Monday at 12" and it'll know you mean noon and next Monday. It also understands more complex details like "every third Thursday until September". On the Watch you can view reminders and events or create new ones by speaking the details. It looks good, too, with events colour-coded to match your calendars. 3.99 and worth it. This is the app that aims to give you up-to-date information on upcoming flights. Set up your App in the Air account, enter the flight dates on your iPhone (or your booking reference, though this feature is still in beta) and in the Glances screen on your Watch it'll show the flight number and time until check-in closes. Tap through to the app itself and there are more details, including gate number when known.

Numerous letters, newspaper articles, postcards, and miniature items (I’m quite fond of the bloody pair of scissors) to decorate said house come within the packages, all of which taken together with the house provide clues to a mystery. Who killed who? Who’s dead? Who’s alive? Who’s nuts? Your recreation of the crime scene and the many pieces of evidence lead you down a curious path to the truth. When you have gathered sufficient evidence and puzzled it out, an online portfolio is revealed that, like a crystal ball, answers some questions. Some answers evidently must remain with the dead. The packages are being sent from 1933 by a certain Lady Delaney . Ms. Delaney seems to exist simultaneously in multiple time periods, since she is also making fantastical miniature doodads of all sorts today and selling them on Etsy . The miniatures are exquisite, and some like the Explorer’s Desk are highly detailed and chock-a-block with cool stuff.

I do find the endless parade of Hench fellers really quite tiresome. There's a real problem, I say it's a problem but a lot of superhero films, these fantastical adventures are trying to be placed more a real-world context. We think we have to have guys who are massive and beefy but it ends up looking daft and very samey.

Featured in the gameplay reveal was a multitude of new worlds to run, jump, and vault through with various aesthetics and styles, such as a lush forest setting to an urban jungle populated by what seems to be a more realistic, mundane world than that of the fantastical Mushroom Kingdom. Also, Marios trademark red cap seems to have become sentient, having grown a pair of eyes and gained the ability to fly out in place to offer Mario an extra surface to jump from. So, uh, theres that. Following a weak turnout of third-party support during the Wii U cycle, we wondered if Nintendo would be on their own for churn out software for their shiny new system. Thankfully, the company wasnt left alone on stage as industry leaders came out to pledge support for the Switch - to include representatives at Electronic Arts, who infamous began to snub the Wii U after the market started to decline.

It's a genre of film-making that its 31-year-old writer and director thinks is unfairly derided as being a bit naff. This idea of musicals as being vibrant and vital, I don't think that they're the outdated think they get labelled as sometimes. They're also not just the purely fantastical thing that people sometimes label them as.

They're also not just the purely fantastical thing that people sometimes labelled them as. I think musicals can actually say a great deal about real life and human emotions and humanity and also where we are now. And the need for dreams.

Grab enough bling before your inevitable demise and you can buy new heroes, some of which hold weapons that shake up how you approach the game, adding to its longevity. Coming across like a Flappy Bird game designed in Terry Gilliam's brain, Steamkraft is an amusingly knowing oddball take on the genre. Each level has you navigate a world of deadly obstacles by way of a fantastical contraption that requires more than a prod to the screen to head skywards. In a submarine, you yank a lever to move up or down; and a level with a bike hanging from a miniature airship has you frantically rotate a mechanism to avoid crashing into the ground or terrifying mechanical ravens. During play, everything is, in all honesty, a bit simple and sometimes a tad unfair (projectiles being flung your way with merry abandon, often leaving little hope of avoiding them), but the novelty factor - in terms of both visuals and controls - shines through to ensure Steamkraft is nonetheless a worthy freebie.

Despite overly familiar chunky visuals (Crossy Road has a lot to answer for), this fast-paced, breezy game is a lot of fun, with you dragging left and right to avoid blundering into rocks, and lifting your finger to soar into the air, aiming to catch another rampaging beast. Much like previous entries in the series, Super Stickman Golf 3 finds a tiny golfer dumped in fantastical surroundings. So rather than thwacking a ball about carefully tended fairways and greens, there are castles full of teleporters and a moon base bereft of gravity. The Ryder Cup, this is not. New to the series is a spin mechanic, for flipping impossible shots off of ceilings and nudging fluffed efforts holewards on the greens. You also get turn-by-turn battles against Game Centre chums and a frenetic multiplayer race mode. The spendthrift release is limited, though, restricting how many two-player battles you have on the go, locking away downloadable courses beyond the 20 initially built-in, and peppering the game with ads.

Apple's own Calendar app is fiddly and irritating, and so the existence of Fantastical is very welcome. In a single screen, you get a week view, a month calendar and a scrolling list of events. There's also support for reminders, and all data syncs with iCloud, making Fantastical compatible with Calendar (formerly iCal) for OS X. The best bit, though, is Fantastical's natural-language input, where you can type an event and watch it build as you add details, such as times and locations. On iPad, we do question the layout a little - a large amount of space is given over to a month calendar view. Still, in portrait or, better, Split View, Fantastical 2 is transformative. Apple's GarageBand turns your iPad into a recording studio. For beginners, there's a range of smart instruments, making it easy to learn the basics of songwriting and chord progression.

Gravity Rush 2 is a sequel that tries to do too much. How did this happen after the original's promising start? The 2012 PlayStation Vita game seemed like a natural fit for a PlayStation 4 sequel. A console release could make the gravity-shifting exploration and combat even more exciting. Right? SEE ALSO: 6 January video games that you need to check out It does do that much, at least. Flinging yourself through the open spaces of Gravity Rush 2 's network of floating islands and airships is a heady pleasure that really has no equal in gaming. That you do it against the backdrop of a fantastical anime cityscape worthy of a Miyazaki film makes the whole thing even more compelling. Seeing Gravity Rush 2 in motion is enough to make you want to play. Read more... More about Japan Studio , Gravity Rush 2 , Gaming , and Entertainment

But now it can integrate Flickr and other networks, beautifully laying out their articles, Flipboard's muscled into the 'essential' category and it's still free.

The app's playful interface is fun to work with, but also it's quite powerful. Import a photo and you can overlay multiple layers of text, artwork and further images, all of which can be edited and rearranged at any point. This isn't an app for super-crazy adjustments, though. Instead, it's focussed and classy perfect for adding some beautiful typography with a subtle drop shadow, thereby creating a birthday card, watermarking a favourite photo, or fashioning wallpapers with text for a loved one. $6.994.99 The built-in iOS Calendar app isn't great, and Reminders is pitiful. Although we're big fans of Fantastical, you might prefer something a bit more conventional. If that's the case, grab Calendars 5 immediately. It offers a range of views that have far more clarity than those in Apple's app, a task centre that makes Apple's Reminders look truly abysmal by comparison, and natural-language input for events that makes adding to your calendar a breeze.

Probably does! Never mind. So that is Assassin's Creed. Best movie out at the moment, in your opinion. A Monster Calls, now this is the most extraordinary sell, actually, it is a fantastical terminal illness melodrama for children. Maybe it is not for children, it stars a 12-year-old boy. It's about him dealing with his mother's cancer. He's visited by a Yew Tree, over a few evenings, and it is played by Liam Neeson, it has a wonderful shape, Dickensian shape, visited three times to be shown things that may help you deal with life.
