Review: Frenzy Pop

image

Having grown up in the 8 and 16 bit console era, I remember when 2D platform games were all the rage.  Nowadays it seems as though even simple platforming romps need to be embellished with the latest 3D graphics in order to be accepted by the masses.  Thankfully handheld devices like smartphones have made the 2D platform game “in style” again, and games like Frenzy Pop are taking good advantage of that.  The premise is simple, the levels are challenging, and there’s no third dimension to clutter up the fun.

The All-in-one Photo Viewer Roundup (+70% price drop on the best image viewer!)

image

In the last few days, I've participated in several discussion threads in the Phone Cameras / Tablets & Apps forum of DPReview. (See for example THIS, THIS and THIS). In order not to have to repeat the same facts again and again in future discussions, I've decided to dedicate a complete article to the question of using the iPad as a photo frame.



Trip to Worlds App Review

image

Trip to Worlds is a social app that allows travelers to share their various locations throughout the world.  It keeps track and documents where you've been, places that have been visited recently, and even tells you about highlights from each area.  Since social media has become extremely popular; the idea of Trip to Worlds is for friends to connect from all over the world. 



What If You Don't Have Siri? A Look At Personal Voice Assistant Alternatives To Siri.

image

   Not to negate the progress that has been made recently in the area of artificial intelligence vocal assistant apps, but relatively speaking, this technology, at a consumer level, is still in its infancy. Even Siri is technically still a BETA release. So we can expect to see some glitches and hang ups in all of the current alternatives for vocal assistant software. That said, some are definitely better than others.



FantasyxRunners App Review

image

The FantasyxRunners app puts a new and exciting twist on the popular ‘running’ type of app.  Like other runner apps the game is played with your character running across the screen and either avoiding or killing enemies and jumping over pits and other obstacles.  While running through the different levels you collect rubies by running over them or collecting them from enemies which you kill.  When running you can’t stop or turn around so you have to have quick reflexes to collect all the possible rubies.

Games with some focus on collectible items are great at satisfying my compulsive side, and those that incorporate some sort of combat make for an awesome stress reliever.  MonTowers has both fronts covered.



Another Contact App? my facecard Does it Differently

Okay, so it seems like there’s always some hot new way to organize your contacts popping up, and these new methods generally turn out to be so much hype.  The developers of my facecard, however, actually have a pretty novel new set up. 



Review: Gravity Maze by Geemzo

image

Let’s get one thing straight right off the bat – if you don’t have much patience, don’t play this game.  For every level you breeze through (which won’t be many) there are several that will cause you to tear your hair out.  Granted you could do just enough to simply pass each level, but if you’re one of those types that like to go for the gold in every game be prepared to spend a considerable amount of time on some of these boards.  Okay, that’s it for the disclaimer.



iPhone Reviews | iPhone Life Magazine

We have several iPhone reviews.  Articles like, iPhone Goes 3G,is one of many that gives you a more in depth look at Apple's products. Here are several iPhone reviews on past and current models.

"On July 11th, 2008, Apple and AT&T stores started selling the iPhone 3G, and over one million consumers bought one in the first three days, making this the hottest smart phone launch ever.  The 3G brings speed,assisted GPS, and a new low price to Apple's smart phone platform. And while the hardware has definitely been improved, it's the OS 2.0 and software suite that is truly revolutionary."

In iPhone 3G S and OS 3.0, we take a first look at the new 3G S. Resting in your hand, it looks pretty much like the 3G, but in this case, looks are deceiving. The iPhone 3G S sports a faster processor, better battery life, a 3 megapixel camera, enhanced 3D graphics, and a variety of other improvements.  Best of all, it's claimed to be twice as fast as the 3G.

We also reviewed the new OS 3.0 and software suite.  Apple added some nice features, including Cut & Paste capability, enhanced A2DPBluetooth that supports stereo headsets, an upgrade of SMS to full Multi MediaServices, improved search feature, landscape keyboard in Mail and other apps,and additional enhancements to Calendar, Contacts, iPod, and Safari.  Apple also added a new native app to the application suite.  VoiceMemo lets you capture and edit short audio recordings and e-mail or SMS them toa friend.

iPhone reviews: Apple began selling an unlocked versionof the iPhone 4S (iPhone Life Article Here). That means that you can use it with any carrier, andyou don't need to sign a contract.  Unlocked phones are a big advantage for frequent travelers. GSM is the most common standard abroad,and the whole cell phone business model is typically much different in other countries. No contracts, no subsidized phones. You simply buy a SIM card and put it in your phone. You can even buy SIM cards at kiosks in airports and on the street.
