Vikersund Ski Flying App Review

image

The Vikersund ski flying app is a simple game where you play as a skier who is attempting a ski jump.  You tap to begin skiing down the hill and at the right moment you tap the screen to jump.  The goal is to get as far as possible during your jump.  You can play either single player or against someone.  Single player you have to beat scores which are computer generated, of course for multi-player you are going against your friend. 



Review: Diggin' Dogs by Chillingo

image

Personally I would find the task of trying to pick out games to publish quite daunting.  When you’re a developer it’s almost inevitable that you think your product is good (or you wouldn’t be making it) but as a publisher you have a whole different perspective on things.  I’m rather impressed with how consistently Chillingo picks out winners.  That’s not to say that every game they publish is gold because there have certainly been some I didn’t like, but the majority have proven to be quite fun.  As you’ve probably guessed by now, Diggin’ Dogs fits into that latter category.  The concepts are tried and true, but the movement mechanic is unique and the lack of a time limit actually gives you the chance to do something that many platformers don’t, which is the opportunity to explore.



Picture Hangman Review

image

Picture hangman is a new app available which is similar to traditional hangman but rather than guessing letters, you guess little pieces of the overall picture.  In picture hangman there is a picture in place of where the word would normally go.  For example, one puzzle solution would be a picture of a woman’s purse.  Now these pictures are similar to chalk drawings, not actual photographs.  At the bottom of the screen there are a bunch of pieces of pictures, also in chalk.  You need to attempt to figure out which of the small pictures at the bottom of the screen belong in the picture and which don’t.

There are many different emoticon apps that are available, but AniEmoticons offers a vast selection of emoticons with a variety of features.  This particular app is perfect for using picture icons to make your emails and text messages more entertaining to read.  In fact, there are so many different options on this app that you can literally type a full message without using any words! 



Music Color for iPhone and iPad

image

The iPhone and iPad have been extremely popular for a number of things since they came out but one thing which has been surprising by many is how many great educational uses there is for them.  One type of education app which many people might never know about is those which are designed for very young children.  The music color app is designed to not only help little kids learn their colors but also get a great appreciation for music.  The app is set up with large panels of different colors for little kids to choose and interact with in a simple way.



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.



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.
