Stone Age App Review

image

The Stone Age game is a fairly straight forward game with a top down view where you control a cave man who is out hunting for meat.  On the iPhone the controls are fairly simple with moving is done by tilting the device left or right.  Attacking is done by simply tapping the screen where you want to throw a club and defense works by swiping a finger across the screen.



VoteMe App Review

image

The Vote Me app is a new political game where you are ‘competing’ against all the other users of this app to get as many votes as possible, and eventually become the first ‘social president’.  You run your social presidential campaign on any platform you’d like to attempt to get votes.  Whether you use it to help promote awareness of local causes, natural concerns or just for fun, you can add in any issues you want to help get attention to yourself.



What's This App? 2 Review

image

What's This App 2 is the sequel to the very popular trivia game for the iPad and iPhone.  This app is quite unlike most other trivia games available today in that it is not just a matter of how much you know about different subjects but much more than that.  You have to look at the clues, which could be anything from the audio playing to the picture or even the letters on the screen.  Every level provides a unique and thought provoking challenge which you have to overcome.  The trick to this game is to learn not to think about it like a normal riddle or trivia question. 



Valentine Wishes - Enjoy this Valentines Day with Valentine Wishes

image

This Valentine’s Day themed game is actually four cute games in one.  While entirely unoriginal, this game is still fun.  It appears that the creators of this app just put new graphics on top of other games which have been around for a while.  That being said, the game is still fairly fun and since it's free it is well worth getting.  The games are rather simple to play and don't require much time to learn but can still be challenging enough to enjoy for even experienced game players.



Pin Locker Review

image

The pin locker app is designed to be one place where you can safely store all your usernames, passwords, PINs and other information which you need to have but can't let fall into the wrong hands.  This app is very simple to use, when the app opens you have to put in your password (so you have to remember that one!) and then you can see all your other information organized for you.  With today's high tech world which requires a password for just about everything, this is a great way to keep them all organized and in one place so they are easy to find.



Photo Canvas Review

image

The photo canvas app is a very simple app which allows you to take pictures with your iPhone and send them to this company to be printed on high quality canvas and shipped to you.  With the newer iPhone 4 and 4s the camera is able to take high resolution pictures and since people have their phone with them all the time, this is how many people are taking most of their pictures.  Unfortunately that used to mean that it was difficult to move the pictures over to your computer, edit them and have them printed professionally. 



Review: Reckless Getaway by Polarbit

image

Generally I prefer my games to have a somewhat compelling set of goals, but there are times when I do enjoy the simple pleasure of mass destruction.  Still, while I figured Reckless Getaway would be fun, I was pretty much expecting it to be a “few minutes here, few minutes there” sort of game.  Turns out I’ve become quite addicted to this little gem.  With it’s over the top… well, everything it feels like you’re in control of a chase scene stolen from a John Woo film.  About the only thing I wish at this point is that there were a variety of cars to choose from, but otherwise it’s a nearly perfect no holds barred racer.



Fat Jump Pro iPhone App Review

image

Fat jump pro is a fun game which has you playing a small green character who starts out at the bottom of the screen, and has to jump from bouncy platform to bouncy platform without falling.  While this does sound like many other games, this one has quite a few different unique additions to the game which have made it quite enjoyable and greatly adds to the length of time it can be enjoyed.



Review: Petri-Dash by Distorted Poetry

image

Petri-Dash is one of the new generation of “dodge everything” games that realizes a game can always use something more to do than just dodge things.  In this case you are some sort of sub-species that lives in a Petri dish, and all you want to do is survive.  In order to do that you’ll either have to dodge all the other organisms or take them on in a battle of butting heads in order to dominate the dish.  Everything comes at a cost, however, and in this case you are constantly losing life just by swimming around.  You are also weakened if you collide with another organism without dashing them.  When your life is spent is back to the primordial pond for you.  You can collect energy pellets to refuel your health, and there are also little versions of yourself that will attach to you when you run them over and give you bonus multipliers to your score.  You lose these friends when you hit one of the bad guys.



We jammin with House of Marley headphones #CES

image
At a certain point, probably around $100, any set of headphones is going to be just fine for the majority of listeners. So at that point, it comes down to quality, comfort, style, colors, and branding. And if the House of Marley, founded by the legendary Bob Marley's family, has anything to say about it, a manufacturer's ecological footprint and philanthropic efforts should also be considered.



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.
