Today, there are many different “to do” apps in the App Store. Everything from a tweaked notepad app, to a full fledged list/chart/reminder/push notifications/etc type app wallows with its pushy digital brethren. Today I got my hands on something that’s a more or less in the middle. Developer IWonderPhone’s app, Voodo – Todo Magic, is an interesting todo app that incorporates a lot of great features without packing on the unnecessary garbage. From the outside looking in, Voodoo Todo itself seems promising. Read on to see if Voodo had the magic touch.
The word impossible gets added to game titles a fair bit nowadays, usually hinting at a higher than normal level of difficulty. Problem is that most of the time it really isn’t the case. Recently however I found a game that really did (and still does!) live up to its title: The Impossible Game. It ain’t just a fluke dude, and I think its dev, FlukeDude, would back me up. Read on to see how it’s possible to be impossible yet still possibly be the best!
There is certainly no shortage of sports games in the App Store nowadays. Everything from ping pong to hockey can be enjoyed on your iDevice; you name it and as the proverbial line goes, “there’s an app for that”. Recently I was given to opportunity to review Concrete Software’s PBA Bowling 2, a bowling game that features some of the biggest stars in the PBA. Seeing how I haven’t hit the bowling alley in years, I was eager to check it out. Read on to see if PBA Bowling 2 delivers the strikes, or wound up in the gutter.
In my humble opinion, Ludia has been one of the best developers of gameshow-themed apps. I picked up The Price Is Right pretty much right when it came out, got Family Feud for the wife over the holidays. They really know what they are doing and it shows. Finally, Ludia released Press Your Luck, the trivia game based on the 80′s game show. It’s got my high hopes behind it; read on to see if I was able to get my Big Bucks and avoid the Whammies!

They say that the only guaranteed things in life are death and taxes. As an app reviewer, one thing I can definitely guarantee is that there is always ANOTHER Twitter app to review. I had done my best to stay away from them as much as possible, however lately I’ve been in the mood for change and scrolling through the appstore I came across the oddly named Osfoora (translated: Little Bird). Read on to see what’s up with this strangely named little app.
The built-in-camera is one of the popular features of the iPhone. There is a whole section of the AppStore devoted to apps that make use of it. From postcards to panoramic, photo cropping to image editing. Some more of gimmick then others that can just blow your mind. Today I got my hands on a fun little app that I would say is a bit gimmicky (if that’s a word) but still fun. Read on to see how Shakeitphoto developed.
Chat clients are a fairly big part of the “social” section of the appstore. The most popular spots are reserved for the “multi-protocol” clients that allow you to login to services like MSN, Yahoo and even Facebook Chat all at once. There have been some huge ones in the past but one that I had been waiting on for sometime was Cerulean Studios’ Trillian. With 10 years’ experience, they are far from new at this and I was excited to see what this recently updated chat program had to offer.
Oh puzzle games: you bring so much amusement and enjoyment to our lives and yet, you also seem to always bring plenty of heartbreak and annoyance. This is how I have always felt about puzzle games. My love/hate relationship with them has gone on for many years across many platforms. In the end no matter how mad or frustrated I get, I always go back. It’s an addiction. Luckily for me, I just found my latest fix with Emantras’ latest release, Rafter, a puzzle game designed around the central theme of Leonardo Da Vinci. Feel free to discuss this review of Rafter in our forums.
I am sure many of you are familiar with the title Arkanoid. For those of you who aren’t, it is a basic arcade game where the object is to clear the screen of bricks with a paddle and bouncing ball. It was one of the first games I ever played in the arcade as a child and quickly realized that although anyone can play it, few will master it. Most fans of the genre will simply play it over and over again. Then there are those, like the developers at codefreeze, who like it so much that they decided to recreate the classic game and make it their own.
Remember when Yahoo started offering online multiplayer pool? It was an explosion of early social networking, mixed with great online gaming. Unfortunately, as most of you know it eventually spiraled into the pervert cave that it is now. Luckily with the creation of the iPhone/iPod Touch, that aspect of social gaming is back, minus the creepy attempts to “cyber”. You may be wondering why I’m referencing such a thing. Well, recently I was handed a copy of Namco’s Pool Pro Online 3. A single & multi player pool game with its own built in chat system.
