App Review Christmas Special - Jolly Jingle Free

image

If you're looking for a fun and educational app for you or your children this Christmas, Jolly Jingle might be just the one.  This app is designed to help people learn some of the most popular Christmas songs around, but it really goes a step beyond that for children.  Kids will enjoy listening to and learning their favorite Christmas tunes, but while learning the songs they will also be practicing their reading skill!



What I Played this Week - Angry Birds Space HD, and Starbase Gunship!

image

Two awesome 99 cent titles this week, and likely my last WIPTW article of 2012, so a happy holidays to everyone, and here is hoping you have a great new year in 2013! Starbase Gunship is a new game from Capital j Media. A stationary 3D shooting game that puts you at the center of the action as enemy ships and incoming weapons head toward your base station. Blasting through and surviving enemy waves will allow you to build up enough creds to update your base firepower and protection levels. Angry Birds Space HD is pig busting in zero-G, and like every other Angry Birds (all of which are currently on sale), powerfully addictive.



A 6-inch iPad mini? Only a Matter of Time...

image

 

This is what I'm talking about! So many Apple pundits had complaints and negative words to say about the iPad mini before it was released, and now that this tablet-that-should-never-be has hit the market, it is one of the best selling devices in the industry. So mark my words when I say the iPad mini isn't the end of the line for new and different iDevice form factors.

 

This should really go without saying and yet, when I suggest that Apple will need to continue to create new iDevice size options to keep up with the competitive nature of the game (see HERE for my previous post on the topic), the backlash and nay saying can be intense. However, to remain relevant I feel Apple must continue to do as they have done and diversify their line to remain a top player in a world where the lines between tablet, phone and even PC continue to blur more and more with each passing year.



Get Great FREE apps FREE and also at Holiday Sale Prices!

image

Got to love the holiday sales, right? In the spirit of the season, several vendors are proving their "non-Scrooge-iness" by offering up reduced pricing and FREE apps to close out 2012! But some only appear to be free, so FREE buyer beware! First up, you can grab great Activision re-styled classics like Pitfall (uh, TOTALLY FREE), Guitar Hero ($1.99), Call of Duty: Zombies ($1.99) and more great games at reduced prices (search App store for Activision). You can also grab a slew of cool games like Shoot the Zombirds (FREE) from Infinite Dreams, iQuarium HD (99 cents), and Jelly Defense (99 cents), plus several more low-priced titles. While you are up in the App store nabbing these great games, you might check out Sleigher and Ears the Astronaut, both pseudo-FREEBIES that I must now sadly report require in-app purchases to advance, which RUINS FREE, IMO (and must now pull from my review queue)...

Cinema-trix App Review

Cinema Trix is a fun app which allows you to add filters and other effects to your device’s camera while you’re shooting video or still images.  Unlike many other apps, you can use this one to look through your camera at the world as you want it to be.  The augmented reality features allows you to feel like you’re in the matrix or some other exciting world.  It’s also great for making fun and interesting videos which are altered in a wide range of ways.
