MediaSafe App Review

image

If you've been looking for an app that will allow you to keep your media hidden from spying eyes; then MediaSafe is the app for you.  It serves as your personal safe where you can hold photos, videos, contacts, and notes that are blocked behind a finger slide code.  It is your personal combination that will eventually allow access, but will lock up if someone else tries and continuously gets it wrong.



Review: Ninja Ponk by Alien Worm

image

Ninja Ponk, formerly Ninja Pong (which, if you ask me, was a better name), is a quirky game that has you bouncing ninjas across gaps in various landscapes with the help of a breakout-style paddle.  As with many of the games I’ve enjoyed lately, the mechanics are dead simple, but to do well in the game requires a lot of focus and some pretty good coordination.  This game will probably serve more as something to fill time than as something you spend hours at a time on, but oh, what great filler it is!



Roamz is social networking that roams with you

image

Twitter, Facebook, and the like are all decent ways to stay in touch with people you already know about, but Roamz has solved a problem you might not have known you had. What happens when you're traveling? What if there are time-sensitive events happening near you, but you don't follow those related social networking accounts?



Review: Treasures Of Montezuma 3 HD by Alawar Entertainment

image

It’s getting harder and harder to come up with original ideas for Match 3 games, but the Treasures Of Montezuma has a nice little twist with the concept of idols that are activated when you match that idol’s color on the playing board twice in a row.  I remember getting really addicted to the first installment once I figured out how the idols actually worked.  For some reason I missed out on part 2, but now I’ve got Treasures Of Montezuma 3 on my iPad, the addiction is back, and this could quite possibly be the best installment in the series yet.

Mike V: Skateboard Party HD is a skateboard game for the iPhone and iPad with intense visuals and enticing gameplay.

The game starts off by allowing you to customize nearly every aspect of your avatar, from the classic to the current Mike V to other people. You are capable of customizing the skateboard, wheels, axles, and even the shoes the avatar wears. All of the different customizations can be unlocked during gameplay.



Review: Zombie Crisis 3D by Kongzhong

image

I love zombie blasters, but there are enough of them out on the App Store that you might be wondering why I’m writing about one that’s over a year old.  Well, despite the fact that there have been some really slick alternatives released since this one came out back in November of 2010, Zombie Crisis 3D is still quite enjoyable.  In fact, I’d wager to say that it is probably the best of the series discounting Prologue, which really could have been just a couple of extra episodes tacked on to the original.  There’s just one small “feature” that I believe is new that’s really getting on my nerves…



Nukes iPhone App Review

image

Nukes is a fairly typical game in which you have to have careful timing to hit a moving object.  The layout has you controlling one 'world' at the bottom of the screen and than another world at the top.  When it is your turn to fire a nuke the enemy world at the top of the screen is spinning either clockwise or counter clockwise and you have to hit 'launch' to shoot your missal at one of the cities on the other world.  If you hit the city it removes one of the 'lives' of the enemy.  You get one shot, then the enemy gets one shot.



App Review: Murder Detective for iPhone

image

Murder detective is an interesting detective type game with quite an extensive story line.  The game play is similar to old school text based games but it has images to go with it and simple tap to choose your options.  The story seems a little bit to common in that a drunk cop with family problems has to solve a murder, but I suppose it is done so often because it works well.  The story line seems quite extensive, I've played for a couple hours now and it still seems to have quite a bit to go.



Review: The Secret of Chateau de Moreau by Four Thirty Three

image

So far the iOS platform has severed my adventure gaming needs well in terms of how the device can handle such games, yet while it’s not unheard of it’s still uncommon to find anything original in this department.  Thankfully there are a few developers who like to buck the trends, however, and as a result we get cool offerings like The Secret Of Chateau De Moreau.  Now I’ll warn you that the game often feels like a soap opera – albeit an interesting one – but if you look past that facet you’ll discover, murder, mystery, romance and a host of interesting characters.  I also like how the game strays from the normal adventure game convention when it comes to moving from room to room.



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.
