    Get by with a little help from my amiibo. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the latest entry in the Legend of Zelda series, returning to the Hyrule introduced in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a game that still stands as one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch. Like in the original Hyrule Warriors, Age of Calamity also makes use of the Amiibo functionality, offering bonuses that can be used in-game. But what do they do? We have an answer for you.

  • This learning platform is proving adults can benefit greatly from learning math and science 25/11/2020 at 20:03h
    Throughout our childhoods, we're taught skills such as science and mathematics to develop our critical thinking skills and prepare us for adulthood. However, learning shouldn't end when your schooling does. Why? To start, those who adopt a learner's mindset beyond traditional schooling are more likely to succeed in their professional and personal lives. You can't cultivate a curious mind overnight, though. Developing a growth mindset requires action, namely the willingness to seek challenges, identify areas of improvement, and learn from mistakes. Luckily, you don't have to go back to school to develop (or re-develop) a learner's mindset. With Brilliant, you'll learn how to look at challenges a new way while satisfying your craving for knowledge. Plus, if you're one of the first 200 iMore readers to sign up, you'll get 20% off your first year of Brilliant Premium — that's $30 off. How Brilliant works Brilliant is an online platform built for students, professionals, and lifel...

  • Budget Forward keeps track of your cash privately with no accounts or subs 25/11/2020 at 16:18h
    What you need to know After two years of development Budget Forward helps you keep track of your spending without a subscription or in-app ads. The app took two years to build but now it's available in the App Store. Keeping tabs on your savings, expenses, and anything to do with money is super important but it's also something that most people don't enjoy. It's no fun and it can be complicated to boot. After two years of development Budget Forward is a new app that hopes to do away with that complication while still offering the features you'll need to get a clear picture of where you are financially. And it won't make you create an account or pay a monthly subscription, either. The simple theory behind Budget Forward is that you tell the app how much money you have now and then work forward from there. You won't be importing years of data – the past is gone, after all – but the app will help you plan for the future by showing you what's going where, and when. Budget F...

    What you need to know All of Rogue Amoeba's apps now have Apple silicon Universal builds available in beta form. Users will need to jump through some hoops to get them to work, though. You're going to need to do two restarts to get them working, though. Developer Rogue Amoeba has announced that beta versions of all of its apps are now available as universal builds, making them ready to run natively on Apple silicon. That includes popular audio apps like Airfoil, Audio Hijack, Loopback, Piezo, or SoundSource. All of these apps have betas ready to go right now, but the developer points out that there is a caveat that needs to be taken into consideration. An announcement post explains that getting the new apps to work will mean manually enabling the ACE audio handling component that they need. And that's going to take a little messing around. If you use Airfoil, Audio Hijack, Loopback, Piezo, or SoundSource, you may already be familiar with the name "ACE". ACE is the audio han...
