Kingston Wi-Drive tries to help you save money on the new iPad

image
Unfortunately, Apple doesn't allow SD card expansion and even the camera connection kit is limited in utility. If you haven't decided which model of the new iPad to buy, or if you wish the iPad or or iPhone you already own had more storage, you might want to consider the Wi-Drive from Kingston.



Contacts Duster Pro App Review

image

Contacts Duster Pro is one of those must have apps for anyone who uses their device to keep track of the information about their friends and family.  As just about anyone knows who has had their phone for any length of time it is very simple to let all your contacts get out of date and unorganized because people today are constantly moving, changing jobs and even getting new phone numbers.  This app will help you organize everything to make them easy to find and use any time you want.

image

For anyone who enjoys, or wants to experiment with Middle-Eastern cooking this is easily the best app available today.  Manal AlAlem is the premier cook throughout the Arab world and is famous for producing and hosting her own TV cooking show, opening cooking centers to teach people to cook Middle-Eastern cuisine properly and writing several best selling cook books. 



Big Guns App Review

image

With the large success of mob boss games found on the market; many developers are tapping into its popularity to create the newest one.  This includes Big Gun; a mafia style game that offers deadly missions, amazing parties, loud music, and the opportunity to run an entire criminal gang.  Of course; you are not automatically the boss when you first begin.  As with any mob game; you have to work up to being the head honcho and this particular game will have you working hard. 



Review: Treasure Seekers 4 The Time Has Come by G5 Games

image

Tom and Nelly are back for the fourth installment of the treasure hunting, bad guy thwarting hidden object series Treasure Seekers.  Check out the links after this review for my thoughts on parts 2 and 3 of the series.  Fans of the series will feel right at home with this iteration of the franchise, and newcomers should be able to jump in fairly easily as well, though references to older adventures might not make much sense to them.  Overall it still provides a decent balance of game play mechanics but there isn’t really a lot of what I’d consider mini-games this time around.  It’s not my favorite of the bunch, but I don’t regret hanging out with the treasure seeking duo again.



Bird Hunting Mania! HD App Review

image

Bird Hunting Mania! HD is one of the newest and addictive games to hit the App store.  It is filled with bright colors, enticing antics, and challenges that has made it very exciting to play.  At first it might not seem like much; but once you begin to hunt, you'll soon notice how strategic it becomes.  The concept is simple; catch as many exotic birds as you can to bring back to Earth in order to start a colony.  You are going to save the world from bird extinction; so get ready to hunt!



Review: Retro Racing by Jamie Woodhouse

image

I’m a big fan of overhead racing games, and because I remember the days when the NES reigned supreme I can appreciate things like “old school” graphics, as long as they are done well.  Like so many genres on the App Store, however, there are enough games of this type that you have to really do something different to stand out.  Retro Racing’s biggest problem is that it really doesn’t, and beyond that it has a couple of issues that actually detract from the fun factor.  I think the game is a nice start, but it might be a little too retro even for my retro tastes.



Call My Name App Review

image

The call my name app is a great new way to not only organize your contacts so they are easy to find and use, but also find the phone number of just about anyone or any business you want.  First, when you open up the app it will have all your contacts from your phone all loaded in and easy to find.  You can use the built in search function to quickly find people by their first name or last name, which makes it a lot easier than just scrolling through like you have to on the normal phone list.
