game-findit-title-20090102

Hiding away among the New section in the App Store is Granet Societe Cooperativa’s FindIT, an application which flaunts photographic faults in a spot the difference game. It makes no attempt however, to conceal its certain strengths: great photography, a wide selection of photos and a unique zooming system that will keep users engaged for hours in intricate gameplay.

Memo Pad in Review – Note Pad all Dressed Up

memo-pad2The Notes app on the iPhone/iPod Touch leaves much to be desired. Sure it will allow you to type and store some notes, but beyond that, features on it are as slim as Apple’s own Macbook Air. For this reason, the App Store is littered with apps that attempt to improve on the functionality of Notes. Memo Pad by SoftwareCraftsman is one of these apps. While it is not a full blown word processing kind of app, it is as its name implies a Note Pad dressed with lots of useful and handy features.

Crayon Physics Deluxe now Available

crayon_physics1Hudson has just released Crayon Physics Deluxe at the App Store. Those familiar with the popular title Touch Physics should feel right at home with this well designed puzzler. While I haven’t had the chance to explore the entire game, it seems to be well polished and challenging. One thing I did notice right away is that you are able to draw more complex shapes than in Touch Physics. Whatever it is you draw will come to life on screen. Very cool indeed. There are currently 50 levels as well as a level editor, a feature that will surely add loads of replay value. More screen shots and info after the jump.

Wikipedia Mobile in Review – Wikipedia -vs- Wikipedia; Wikipedia wins!!

wikipedia_mobile1

With this review, I’m assuming that people are familiar with Wikipedia, an open sourced encyclopedia that anyone can contribute and review, and that it’s a wonderful source of information. I personally use it to do research on things that I see on Discovery Channel/ National Geographic, to gain a bit more knowledge on things on top of that described on TV, since I always miss bits and pieces due to phone calls, bathroom breaks, etc..

A Look at Hot PopCorn – A Must Have for Movie Junkies

hotpopcorn1

Don’t we all love movies? It seems just about everyone I know with an iPod Touch or iPhone has a Movie app installed to find out show times, new releases, ratings and more. While most of them are free, I have yet to come across one that I would consider a must have. Enter Hot Popcorn, a newly released Movie app by Boctor Design that could very well blow the competition right out of the water. Not only is the interface well designed, it comes loaded with features that even includes purchasing tickets right within the app. Nice.

A Ping Pong Threesome – Rubbers, Bouncing Balls and Fortune Cookies

gamepaddleballhitting20081230

Because I am a fan of the misunderstood sport of table tennis, I scoured the App Store for a good table tennis game. I’ve not found any yet, but the match has just begun. Three apps: Paddle Ball, iPingpong 3D and Zen Table Tennis caught my eye. Balls in hand, I will drive forth a looping comparison. For reference, World Cup Ping Pong has also been recently reviewed here!

Gratitude Journal in Review – A Handy Note and Diary App

gratitude1

I wonder how many people still keep diaries or journals of their lives on a regular basis. I have always been told that it is something worth doing, especially down the road when you are able to look back and remind yourself of things that would otherwise have likely been forgotten. Well, after using Happy Tapper’s Gratitude for the past few days, I believe I have found a great reason to start my very own journal.

My sad attempt at sharing Homer with mankind
