TheTake Review: What is that film star wearing? Tap to find out

iPadiPhone

Like Shazam for clothes, TheTake identifies what people are wearing in movies

The phrase ‘as seen on TV’ is a well-worn – some may say dubious – badge of honour for a product but there is no doubt that an item seen on a screen (large or small) can be more desirable.

Call Of Duty: Heroes review

iPadiPhone

Heroes is a town-building freemium game. It might dress it up in the urban camouflage of modern warfare, but it’s basically Clash of Clans reskinned.
