Cubyrinth is a puzzle solver that will require your concentration and some Rubik's experience; Warpspeed 2 is a 3D racer with addictively retro sound/graphics; Blast Angle HD is a Dome Wars (or Scorched Earth on PC) redo with a sharp and vibrant look. Read on for the mini-reviews and vids...

Tower Raiders 2 Gold is Addicting at Best

image

Tower Raiders 2 Gold is a standard tower building app that adds a few different twists.  The overall goal is to protect the crystals from enemies that try to follow the trail directly to them.  Your army has a variety of different defensive weapons that can be purchased to kill any threat that travels down this path.  However, there are additional features and weapons that can be unlocked as you continue through the game. 

To start; when you initially get onto the main menu, you can either “Play Now” or choose from “Options”.  The options allows you to configure the sound, recycling settings for new games, and a chance to access the forums where other players are discussing issues and concerns.  This is very helpful when trying to win. 



Best iPhone Apps, iPad Apps, iPod Touch Apps | iPhone Life Magazine

We review the Best iPhone Apps, iPad Apps, and iPod Touch Apps.  Whether you want to play a game (like Chillingham Manor), navigate with GPS, or discover new apps, you can easily get lost.  There are so many on the market and the number is increasing on a daily basis.  So where to begin?  The following examples are just a few of what is out there.

The Head Finder is one of the iPhone apps around. It is a task management or schedule management that helps you organize all the different things you have to do.  It has a very simple user interface and it seems they designed all the most common functions to be done with as little tapping and typing as possible which is a real time saver.  Several time management apps, in the past, have seemed to waste more time entering events and tasks into the app than you might save by being more organized.  With Head Finder you can have a new task entered in less than thirty seconds with their quick three tap process to create a reminder.

Another one of the best Iphone apps we've seen is The JumiCam. This app allows you to view streaming video from any web cam you want with ease.  It's easy to set up the software on your PC and then connect your phone to see what's going on at your house.  The JumiCam also works very well on either a 3G connection or WiFi. This app allows you to connect to as many different web cams as you want so you can monitor your entire house while you're away if you want.  It can really take the place of an entire security service if you wanted it to.  There are many ways to use this, from keeping an eye on a babysitter while you're out on a date to making sure your pet is safe at home while you're at work.

As the name describes, U.S. Traveller is made for travelers that call the United States their home and travel to countries outside their own. In opening the iPhone app, on the "Countries" tab, you are presented with a list of countries & their correlating flags. The added flags next to the country names are a nice touch, especially since most people can quickly find a country based on visual representation versus textual representation. You can travel from the U.S. to numerous countries - Chile, Argentina, Germany & Italy to name a few. This may not adequately prepare you for the countries you visit, but this will for sure help you. The amount of information and the ease of access it gives to people is incredibly invaluable.
