Facebook Cover Designer Review

image

The facebook cover designer app makes creating great looking profile pictures or timeline covers quick and easy, right from your iPhone.  Since the new timeline profile feature came out on facebook there have been a few different places on the net which allow you to create some custom timelines, but there was never anything that could work right on your phone.  This was a big problem for many people since the majority of pictures taken and used on facebook today are shot right from phones or other camera enabled smart phones. 



Review: The Passenger by Loading Home

image

I love adventure games, as it was probably the first genre I got hooked on when I started playing computer games.  As the genre goes it’s always nice to see an original IP pop up in the App Store, so I was pretty excited when I ran across The Passenger.  After playing and finishing it, however, I’m not quite sure how I feel about it.  There are certainly some nice points to the game, but ultimately it felt too basic and more disappointedly, way too short.  I’d still be more than happy to see a sequel, but the game will need a lot more meat to produce I viable franchise.



Windows Updated Jailbreak With Absinthe

image

The Time has finally arrived for windows users to get a simple jailbreak.  The Absinthe jailbreak was released for the mac yesterday.  I am glad to inform all the iPhonelife viewers the windows version is now available.  Simply, download the software to your computer, install, and jailbreak.  This is very simple, just a few clicks and your jailbroken.  The process will take around thirty minutes to complete.  Possibly longer should you have several hundred apps on the devices.  My iPhone 4S jailbreak took around thirty minutes to complete.

TidyTilt brings one of the smartest iPad features to the iPhone

image

Why didn't I think of this?  Better yet, why didn't Apple?  One of the attractive elements of the iPad 2 is the Smart Cover.  So why should the iPhone miss out on the action?  That was the thinking of Zahra and Derek, two Chicago-based enterprising entrepreneurs who created TidyTilt and used KickStarter.com to successfully fund it.



Tiny Heroes FREE!

image

Go grab some Tiny Heroes today, because it may only remain free for a short time. It is a highly-rated tower defense game for iPhone, and you are the obstacle: the dungeon itself. Can you stop the Tiny Heroes from reaching the loot? If you want to do it free, better get over to the app store now!



MediaSafe App Review

image

If you've been looking for an app that will allow you to keep your media hidden from spying eyes; then MediaSafe is the app for you.  It serves as your personal safe where you can hold photos, videos, contacts, and notes that are blocked behind a finger slide code.  It is your personal combination that will eventually allow access, but will lock up if someone else tries and continuously gets it wrong.



iVisor AG Screen Protector by Moshi

image

 

I'm loving my new screen protector, the iVisor AG from Moshi!  It was so easy to put on (literally took 30 seconds).  And they are right...no bubbles!  And it's thin enough where I can use any case with it.  It comes in black and white. 



Review: Ninja Ponk by Alien Worm

image

Ninja Ponk, formerly Ninja Pong (which, if you ask me, was a better name), is a quirky game that has you bouncing ninjas across gaps in various landscapes with the help of a breakout-style paddle.  As with many of the games I’ve enjoyed lately, the mechanics are dead simple, but to do well in the game requires a lot of focus and some pretty good coordination.  This game will probably serve more as something to fill time than as something you spend hours at a time on, but oh, what great filler it is!
