Sneezies – Bubble Popping Fun in Review – Sneezing Made Fun

sneezies1Sneezies is perhaps one of the more adorably addictive games I have come across on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Developed by Antair Corporation, Sneezies is a unique title that can truly be enjoyed by all age groups. The premise of the game is very simple, yet highly effective nonetheless. You are presented with ‘Sneezies’ that are trapped in floating bubbles and your job is to free them by making them sneeze. In doing so, you will also create massive chain reactions of bubbles bursting that are accompanied by some sweet visuals and cute sound effects.

Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience in Review – Not Really Flying…

wings1

When I heard about Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience and saw some of the screenshots on iTunes, I had high expectations; the graphics were amazing!! It was like the screenshots were taken from a PSP or a PS2 even; just by showing me the graphics on a webpage it could never convince me that Wings 2 was a mobile phone grade application. I then immediately wanted to test it out, to see how great the program was.

A Look at iMeter, iPhone’s 1st Tricorder

Something is up

Something is up

400 Years Early
Today, I am back on the subject of useless apps. To set the stage, please try to imagine the TV show Star Trek or ST: The Next Generation. Warp speed, aliens, holodecs and world peace; It represented a universe where anything was possible. Today, I want to make a tardy congratulation to our world. Hooray! We have surpassed the world of Star Trek and it is not yet the 10th of January, 2009.

Quick hit on BeejiveIM 2.0- The Best gets even Better

beejive1BeejiveIM is still one of the best app purchases I have made at the App Store for my iPhone 3G (when the app was first released). Sure at $15.99, the price tag alone will scare loads of people off.  But having read so many great reviews, I took the plunge and haven’t regretted it one bit.  After comparing it with other IM apps I had also tried (free and paid), I realized nothing even comes close to the feature set and performance of BeejiveIM. Well today, the best just got better. Tagging it with version 2.0, Beejive included some great new features, including sending and receiving voice notes.

App Rejections: who is in charge? Editorial


(The above video is not my iPod)

Ages ago, when Pull My Finger, a gas of an app whose cheese was cut by Apple for having ‘limited usability’ made waves on internet, the App Store was still young. Now, with over 10 000 apps in its library, the App Store is a gigantic katamari ball for both good and crap software. Need we more evidence than last Christmas when a farting app made the top ten seller list, touting features like, “the sick dog”?

A Look at PushToTalk – Walkie Talkie on your iPhone

pushtotalk1Recently, I came across an interesting app that will turn your iPhone into a walkie talkie. PushToTalk, developed by David Fletcher, will allow you connect and communicate with friends and family in a “Push to Talk” and “Over and Out” fashion.  For it to work, all parties must have it  installed on their iPhone (with 2.2 firmware) and be on a Wi-Fi network for best results.

Hexile in Review- A Fresh New Puzzler for the iPhone

hexile1Fusion Development Group has recently released a unique puzzle/strategy game that could very well be the first of its kind at the App Store. Hexile is a fast paced “High-Low” tile-tapping game that will have you racing the clock and clearing the board of all stones. The premise of the game is simple: Tap the stone tiles in ascending or decending order to remove them from the screen before time runs out. While this may sound easy, Hexile is in fact a well designed game that will challenge all takers, especially as the game progresses.
