Which Tablet Is Right for You?

For the fourth holiday season in a row, tablets are some of the hottest gifts of the year. A few years ago, it was easy to pick a holiday tablet: Just get an iPad.

Fast-forward to 2013 and the situation is a bit different. Not only are there multiple iPad devices to choose from, there are a host of iPad alternatives worth looking at too.

So which tablet is right for you? We’ve put together the below flow chart to help you get in the right frame of mind for choosing the perfect tablet. The goal of this chart is to help you start thinking about the criteria that are most important to you in a tablet.

We start with size and then proceed on to budget. After that point, the question centers around what type of tasks you like to do with your tablet.

If your focus is primarily on content consumption, a Kindle Fire might be a great choice. If you want to use a precision stylus, consider the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. For users who want a good general tablet with tons of apps and support, it’s still hard to beat the iPad. Are you a big Android fan? The Nexus 7 is a great tablet at a great price.

One quick note: we didn’t include the Surface 2 or any other Windows RT-based tablets in this chart, primarily because at this point in time, we don’t think the app ecosystem is broad enough for the general consumer. That said, if you are someone who is deeply invested in the Windows and Office ecosystems — especially at work — those devices are worth exploring.

If you want to get more insight into which tablet to buy, check out our #MashTalk from two weeks ago on this very topic.

Best New Apps: ‘Gentlemen!’

Vídeo

Few mobile games offer single-screen action with friends as intense and fun as Lucky Frame’s Gentlemen! Sure, there are multiplayer experiences like swapping turns in Letterpress or fighting for the highest score in Ridiculous Fishing, but nothing quite like this. It’s sort of like a two-player take on Super Crate Box mixed with Spy vs. Spy, only instead of having to kill off waves of enemies, you’ll need to dispose of a human foe sitting right across from you. You’ll compete across a handful of simple levels and game modes in a duel to the death, and all you can really do is jump and attack. Sometimes the goal is to simply kill your opponent a certain number of times, while at other times you can just steal their diamonds instead. And you’ll have a wide range of weapons at your disposal, from knives and bombs to killer homing pigeons.

This all leads to a rather frantic experience, especially with Gentlemen!’s gravity-defying physics, which let you run along both the floor and the ceiling, and to switch directions mid-air. What makes things particularly challenging is that you and your opponent are sharing the same device — all of the menus and text are mirrored, so that players can read it from either end — and you always have the option to cheat and tap their controls at inopportune moments. Add in randomly distributed weapons and you end up with a game that will have two players gripping either end of an iPad very tightly. Gentlemen! is an exciting change of pace from a studio that brought us music-focused games like Wave Trip and Bad Hotel, and it’s available now on the iPad and Android tablets for $4.99.

Bridging Book – Portuguese project that creates a symbiosis between the book and iPad

Vídeo

Bridging Book is a children’s mixed-media picture-book that blurs the line between printed and electronic books. It consists of a printed book and a digital device, placed side-by-side, with synchronized content. Thumbing through the book’s pages triggers the device to display the complementary digital content. The physical book requires no batteries or wires.

In the current version, the printed illustrations on each page of the physical book are extended into the device screen, offering further interaction. The content can be explored both linearly by reading and thumbing the printed book and/or exploring the interaction on the digital device.

The Bridging Book combines a physical book containing magnets with a touchscreen tablet that incorporates a built-in digital compass. The synchronization between the thumbing of the physical book and the digital content is achieved by placing magnets on the book pages that change the magnetic field strength detected by the digital compass sensor.

This work is funded by FEDER funds through the Operational Competitiveness Factors Program – COMPETE and by National Funds through the FCT – Portuguese Foundation for the Science and the Technology within the Project: PTDC/CCI-COM/119030/2010, EngageBook: touch, read and play.
