FreeAppWall Review

image

The app called “Free App Wall” is easily the best one of its type which I’ve tried so far.  The point of this handy app is to find other apps which are not normally free but are for one reason or another.  This is often because the other apps are new or being promoted or something of this nature but the bottom line is this is the best way to find great apps for free that I’ve seen.



Review: I Won't Fall by Agni Studios

image

I Won’t Fall is the heartwarming saga of a mother hen who will risk anything to save her baby chicks.  In all honesty the game can sometimes get a bit depressing, especially when you get smacked again and again by the picture of a baby chick with a solitary tear running down its cheek if you fail a level.  Have no fear, though, because love always prevails and when you finally conquer the treacherous surroundings and reach each baby chick you’ll feel warm and fuzzy all over. At least I think that’s the emotions from the game…



Color Splurge iPhone App Review

image

Everyone is looking for a great way to play with color in a photograph.  With Color Splurge; you can do just that!  This is where you can take practically any photo and turn it into black and white while adding additional colored features to enhance and personalize.  It’s a fantastic way to bring out that special photo and give it an artistic touch.

When initially signing on; a quick explanation of buttons is shown, but a little too quick to read.  A suggestion to the developer would be to slow this down, but the option to access it again is located on the top right icon pictured with a question mark.  But, the fact remains that it isn’t necessary; you can click on each one to understand their easy capabilities.



Review: Profitville by 10tons Ltd

image

It’s the same old song and dance you’ve heard from movies like “You’ve Got Mail” to games like “Cake Mania”.  Corporate America is taking over and ruining the little mom and pop shops, or in this case a whole town.  While the premise is actually a bit more depressing than entertaining, Profitville still manages to make it loads of fun.  There’s no question that this game will test your sorting and judgment skills, and you’ll get so caught up in it that you’ll often wonder where your time has gone.  The real question is whether or not you have what it takes to put Profitville back on the map again.



Hot Culture Review

image

The Hot culture app is the app arm of the culture.pl website which offers the latest in news and information concerning the Polish culture and events.  This app is beautifully designed and has an impressive amount of information which is updated every day.  Whether you’re looking for information about the latest polish singer or just an update on what is going on in the news, this app has everything you could ever want to know about the Polish culture.



White Christmas App Review

image

Since the holidays are coming; it only makes sense to produce an app that will adhere to the jolly season.  Everlasting memories naturally occur during Christmas time and are usually enhanced by unique and beloved photos.  This is why White Christmas was created!  This is where you can take as many pictures as you want with some highlighted seasonal features that can make them more than just memorable.  In fact, it’s a great way to take a simple family photo and add some Christmas cheer to it! 



Review: The Gwaii - 3D Comic Book by Mobad Games

image

I’ve primarily stuck to reviews of games in the past, because that’s mostly what I do with my iPod Touch.  However, I have been a comic book fan for a long time, and when I got the chance to review this cool looking “3D” comic book, I jumped on it.  To its credit, the book is pretty cool.  However, I think the 3D aspect of it is more gimmicky than practical or useful.  Still, to get an 84 page full color graphic novel for under $6 these days is a pretty good deal, and having it narrated thanks to its electronic format is a cool bonus.  If you’re really hoping for some slam-bang 3D effects you’re not going to be so impressed, but if you just want a decent story, slick 2D illustrations, and good voice work (at your discretion), The Gwaii is a solid choice for you.



Review: Mushihimesama Bug Panic by Cave

image

From what little I know about Cave, they’re pretty famous for make excellent games that fall under the category of “bullet hell” scrolling shooters.  Bug Panic is certainly a far cry from that style of game play.  That doesn’t make it any less challenging, mind you, and actually goes to show that Cave is more than a one trick pony.  More importantly, it’s actually a nice change of pace from the typical dual stick shooter, which is the category it actually falls into.  The anime style cut scenes and overall cuteness might night be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a challenging dual stick shooter that doesn’t just feel like a clone of the rest, Bug Panic is a good choice for you.



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. 



Speakal iKurv Dock Review - Space age looks but down to earth tones!

image

Speakal has some of the more interesting audio products available for iPhone, and iPod. I have written about several on our blogs, and in terms of quality, have found them a decent product for the price. Maybe not in the same class as say the Sonos or iHome audio products like the iW1 we've reviewed, but they still produce a good sound. Speakal has the market nearly cornered in unique and eye-catching designs with clever features (see my review of the motion-sensing, rechargeable iPig). If you want a sound dock that simply looks good, sounds good, and doesn't break the bank, the iKurv is a good pick--which, by the way, will also push composite video from your iPod/iPhone to a TV or monitor.



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.
