    Version- 1.3 (iPhone OS 3.0 Tested)
    Space- 0.3 MB

    Receive the latest deals on AppStore Applications using PandoraBox updated especially for 3.0 iPod Touch and iPhones.

    Not sure which application to buy in the AppStore? Well PandoraBox might be the new application for you. PandoraBox gives users updates on Applications when they go on sale for "20, 30, and even 80 percent off" (iTunes AppStore). If you want to be in the know for the latest price updates, then I'd recommend trying this app. You will not be disappointed.


    Let me introduce you to this very helpful App:

    PandoraBox

    PandoraBox is a simple-to-use Application that allows you to view AppStore Apps that have recently gone on sale.

    A Glance at all the Tabs in PandoraBox

    PandoraBox is divided into 5 Tabs:
    • Featured
    • On Sale
    • New Apps
    • Favorites
    • More

    The Welcome Menu starts on the "Feature" tab. Just like the AppStore, this shows which Apps are featured and "hot" according to AppStore Sales. The Welcome Menu is divided into a "What's Hot" section and a "Wish List" section.

    I personally like the "On Sale" Tab because it shows which Apps have recently been put on sale-most of them being from $0.99-$3.99 to FREE. Users can also check out which Paid Apps have recently been decreased in price.

    The "New Apps" Tab shows recently added Applications; I think this is a nice feature to have because I am always looking for new Applications to try, so this comes in very handy.

    Each App can be added as a favorite in their description. If you favorite an App, it later shows up in the "Favorites" Tab. This is an added bonus if users plan on buying Apps at a later time, or want to wait for price reductions.

    Viewing an App

    When users view a specific Application, they are shown the Application's Icon, given a description, and provided with the price that links directly to the AppStore for fast purchases. Users also can favorite specific Apps to view and/or purchase at a later time.

    The "More" Tab encloses the Search feature and the Settings feature. Users can change the currency to whatever is native to their country; they also have the choice of changing which Categories are searched through.

    I would like to commend AppZap for incorporating a bunch of features into this Application. All the tabs run smoothly and the connection to the AppStore is a nice added bonus.

    Now onto PandoraBox's Design:


    Graphics & Presentation-


    • Fits in with the familiar AppStore
    • Design is very presentable and easy on the eyes
    • Text is easy to read; especially long descriptions
    • Tabs that are in use illuminate blue
    • Price buttons are green

    The verdict:Dmitry Glebenok did a fantastic job to make a familiar design that fits in with the traditional AppStore and appeals to users. (10/10)

    Audio-

    • No Rating. This utility does not come with music/audio.

    The verdict:
    No Rating.

    Gameplay/Controls-

    • Tabs load fast
    • Connection to the AppStore runs smooth and quickly
    • Search feature is a plus
    • Users can adjust currency to suit their needs
    • No Push notifications
    • No price refinement selection

    The verdict:With the benefit of choosing your currency and the fast-loading tabs, PandoraBox provides users with easy to use controls that work the way they are supposed to.(9/10)

    Value For Money-
    • Very easy to use
    • FREE
    • Regularly updated

    The verdict: This free utility is no joke. It's regularly updated to suit your AppStore purchases. (10/10)

    Improvements-


    • Push Notifications
    • Customizable Price Updates

    PandoraBox provides users with recent AppStore Sales and updates. While lacking push notifications and customizable price updates, newly updated PandoraBox runs smoothly on iPod Touch and iPhone OS 3.0. The sleek design fits in nicely with the AppStore and Apple's default design. Overall, this is a necessary app for those who regularly shop at the AppStore and want to save some money.

    Buyer BEWARE...you might be on a MAJOR AppStore Downloading Spree...


    Graphics & Presentation: 9/10 (appropriate for Apple's Default design and user familiarity)

    Audio:N/A (music is not necessary and not included in this app)

    Gameplay/Controls: 10/10 (very user-friendly; fast-loading app)

    Value For Money: 10/10 (PandoraBox is FREE and works with the original purpose)


    TOTAL REVIEW RATING: 9.7/10 EXCELLENT
    MY iTUNES RATING: 4.8/5

    I've had this for a while. Like App Sniper but free! Must have app if you like to keep in touch with your bargains and price reductions.

    Another great €p1c review.

    Nice Review!

    I wish there was a option of "Watch/Wish List" rather than simple Add to Fav so as to get better updates ..
