It’s Monday! And that can only mean one thing… The start of MR Team Mondays. Every Monday, members of the MR team will give their opinions on some of their favourite applications, to try and entice you into agreeing and trying the app out for yourself! Remember, these are professional opinions from some of the best reviewers on the forum, so they know what’s right. This week, we’ve got Shaded Light, TDG and Studangerous, giving us the lo-down on their favourite apps of the moment.
Shaded Light has gone with Airport Mania – First Flight:
Simple, quirky, fun. A game that anyone can play, utilizing the touchscreen flawlessly, great audio music and sound affects. Perfectly wrapped together in a progressively challenging game that will provide hours of entertainment.
TDG chose the game WiFi Warfare, which is a game I’ve personally never heard of, but let’s see what he thinks:
WiFi Warfare is an action-packed 2D shooter. It implements the use of LAN for playing with a friend, or you can play online with people across the world, with rooms from North America and Europe. Just think of it as… Call of Duty 4, but 2D and in “Old School” mode. The graphics aren’t very pretty, but the gameplay is simple and addictive. With 6 different maps, 5 different guns, 2 different grenades, 2 different game modes, AND more to come in future updates, I don’t think you will get bored of this game.
And finally, Super Moderator: Studangerous! He’s gone with iComic, a simple comic reader which has been around for quite a while!
The iDevices seem perfectly suited for viewing scans, whether they be graphic novels, comics, magazines, instruction booklets or any other graphic intensive publication. Using the touchscreen to navigate around and between pages, pinch to zoom and an appropriate screen resolution provides an unintentionally brilliant comic book read. There’s several apps on the App Store you can use, but iComic has been around since the 1.1.1 firmware jailbreak, has the best functionality, stability (after recent update), in-comic reading experience and is the cheapest of all the standalone readers at only $0.99. The only thing it lacks is a native resize and sync tool to easily transfer your existing documents.
If you’ve got plenty of comics or eBooks on your computer, you can transfer them over with the recently added FTP feature. It’s a cheap steal at $0.99 and as Stu said, the iDevice is a very good medium for reading with.
So that’s it for this week! Three very different apps with different opinions! Next week, we’ll have a new selection of MR Team members opinions – And maybe even a few opinions from some new writers…
