Application Review: Track 8

[IMG]

Such beauty can’t be packed into one app, it’s unbelievable! The additional features are a nice touch, and integrated brilliantly. Smooth scrolling and animations are simple, but elegant on their own. This has to be the best integration of the Metro 8 interface I’ve seen for iOS. This is a Muzik killer. These were my first impressions when using the app. Within the time I’ve owned the app, I’ve learned to love these features, but also despise the bugs that come along with the app. In the end, the features trumped the bugs.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Clipbox

[IMG]
Snap, organize, and store. That is the basic idea behind ClipBox. A place for all of life’s little moments, a place to save your past, and a place for ideas to spark. ClipBox, developed by HaHa Interactive, is a nice little app that boosts a beautiful interface with a few caveats, but also has tremendous potential.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Fat Birds

[IMG]

With all the craze of Angry birds over the past few years, Estelion decided that it had to join the bird bandwagon. However, instead of having the birds destroy things, they decided another route. Let’s make the birds fat! That is just what they did. The principal of the game is simple, guide some fat birds across a bridge. It can get harder than it sounds though.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Slingshot Racing

[IMG]

Tilt steering… On-screen pedals… Full-on customization… Slingshot holds none of these common racing game properties. Instead, it aims to be a quick, pick-up-and-play game with very simple controls. Many games that follow these principals end up being among the most successful in the App Store. Is Slingshot racing included in this group, or is it an exception to the rule?

Application Review: Facebook Camera

[IMG]

Facebook has become a staple for social media. In recent Weeks, Facebook went ahead and made a hefty purchase by buying Instagram. Their plans on what to do with it were unknown at the time. It was, however, believed that it would be integrated into Facebook better. That belief wasn’t too off. Facebook went ahead and released Facebook Camera (or just Camera), an extension to Facebook that focused entirely on photos and pictures.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Nubilous

[IMG]

The iOS weather app has always been one that has offered the most basic information around. Although Nubilous’ mission is not to out-feature the stock Weather app, it, instead, plans to destroy it with a simplistic, minimalistic design that is sure to please. Although it succeeds in upping Apple with an even more simplistic, even more user-friendly UI, its price tag can weigh against it.  Read on for the full review. (more…)

Application Review: Groove 2

[IMG]

Apple’s default music player is a great stock player, especially comparing it to other stock music players; Apple’s seems a little further ahead of the others. Although it’s a great music player, it still isn’t the best as it doesn’t intuitively take advantage of many gestures, and quick access features. Although Groove isn’t an exact solution to the stock iPod or Music app, it does offer some beautiful shuffling features.  Read on for the full review: (more…)

Application Review: Byword

[IMG]

iOS features a basic app, offering basic functionality, that had a matte yellow icon. We all know this app, and it has changed very little over the past half-decade. With 5 years worth of upgrades, and only seeing an additions of font selection and searching capabilities, it becomes well apparent that Notes will not become the notes app we all dream of. Byword is a competitor against the notes app offering a stress-free writing environment that is simple to the touch and offering a wide array of features… (more…)

Application Review: Mass Effect: Infiltrator

[IMG]

Almost 3 years ago, Electronic Arts published the first installment of Mass Effect for the iOS platform. It was devastating to quickly find that, although it did help players in the main console game, it was 2D and really didn’t live up as well as it should have. BioWare, the developers behind Mass Effect, came back in the year 2012 to release the first, proper, 3D version of Mass Effect that users didn’t even know they fathomed for. This game does deliver well in the gameplay, but the replay can be a bit crippled.  Read on for the full review… (more…)

Application Review: Cut the Buttons

[IMG]

When it comes to iOS, one of the ways to make a big hit is to make an arcade game that is essentially never ending. The sheer addictiveness of the game itself is enough to push it to the number one position. Many try to hit this mark, many fail, some succeed, others fall somewhere in between. Cut the Buttons may sound like a knock-off of Cut the Rope, but its gameplay differs greatly. Although a great concept, it doesn’t entirely work well on the iPod and iPhone which puts it somewhere in between.  Read on for the full review:  (more…)
