FlamingIgloo iPhone App Review

image

The Flaming Igloo game is a fairly enjoyable yet challenging game.  The basic premise is you have to put out fires on your igloo by throwing snow balls at it.  If the fire goes on to long you’ll have to throw a large piece of ice at the igloo to fix it.  The makers of this game did a good job with the physics of the game making it challenging to throw the ice or snow at the right spot on the igloo.  There are many levels which get more challenging as you go and add in additional options.

What I played - Gobble edition!

image

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of my somewhat-weekly column featuring the games, apps or even gadgets I played with during the week. It's not always strictly iOS related, as last week (or was it the week before?) I reviewed the HP TouchPad, though a couple of the apps mentioned also have iOS versions. This week, it's all iPhone/iPod/iPad and all free, so if you want to get some game on this turkey day weekend, it won't cost you a cent. Bowmaster Lite brings you the thrill of the early pilgrims, who couldn't go to the supermarket to bag a turkey. Chromian Wars is a new war strategy sim game with AR features. My fav of the bunch has to be Falling Stars--quickly make funky tones/beats with this addictive and free music maker game.

Easy Release - for Professional Photographers

image

 

One thing that all photographers have to do is to obtain and store model releases. Easy Release makes that chore a easier.

Easy Release was designed by a professional photographer to replace paper model releases. It comes with pre-bundled, industry-standard model and property releases in 13 languages. The legal text is customizable so you can either use it “as is” or customize it to your own needs. (Note: The app is approved for use by Getty Images.)



Smart Words FREE iPhone App Review

image

 

At first I thought Smart Words was just another scrabble clone but after reading through the scoring instructions and playing a couple games I realized it’s actually quite a bit different and has a lot of fun improvements.  The scoring seemed a lot more complex at first because you get a multiplayer bonus for each syllable your word has.  In addition, unlike scrabble, you can use proper nouns and you have nine tiles in your tray so you can often make much longer and more complex words.  To allow this, the game board is also quite a bit bigger.



UniQXcess iPad App Review

image

UniQXcess is an app that in its basic format is a file viewer; however, it boasts that you can access your files from your PC remotely. Which seems pretty cool; however, there is no Mac support, which to me seems a bit ironic, really. Anyway, I wasn’t able to test the remote access of the file viewer because I have a Mac. But I was still able to access the file viewer and view local files and files from my Dropbox account.
