WeDict Pro in Review – No More Freebies

wedictpro1There was once a time when WeDict was a half-decent free dictionary. It sufficed for the basic needs of many people who deemed literacy a high priority in their lives. Between that time and now, the freebie faded away and WeDict Pro, the full paid version, remained. While more robust in functions and features than its free predecessor, does WeDict Pro have enough to justify its (as many would consider) hefty price?

App Update: Abby Crabby

abbycrabby81

Don't eva mess with a crab carrying a dynamite and broken bottle!

Steamboat Mountain Designs has recently released a v1.1 update to Abby Crabby, a visually appealing game I had previously reviewed here at TouchMyApps. While I did enjoy the game with its cute graphics and fun gameplay, I found that the tilt controls were not very responsive and the lack of difficulty settings didn’t help the matter. After hearing some of these concerns, Jeff Mathews tweaked Abby Crabby for a much more enjoyable crabby experience.

Burning Tires 3D in Review – Yet Another Racer

burningtires1There is little doubt that the iDevice makes a great platform for racers. One can see that by the 5 pages of racing games in the AppStore. With so many to choose from, and with little variety between them, a game has to justify its existence in order to thrive. This is where Burning Tires 3D faces a dilemma. Is it good or innovative enough to warrant a purchase? Unfortunately, unlike Fishlab’s other racing game, Powerboat Challenge 3D, there is little reasons that legitimize this game.

Heavy Mach assaults App Store, $2.99 + Impressions

heavymach1Already with two smaller apps under their belt (Fortune Egg and BPop), developer IndieAn has gone all out this time round with the release of Heavy Mach, a surprisingly fun and engaging side scrolling tank game. According to the app description:

Let’s have a closer look at some of the games features.

Wedding Dash in Review – Let the honeymoon begin?

weddingdash1I’ve watched my wife play time management games for years now.  I have to be honest that I’ve never really understood the attraction to the genre.  Well, it was time to find out what these types of games are all about, and I now have a new found appreciation for the genre.

What I first found interesting in this game was the strategy element.  I mistakenly thought that this was a game that you just tap aimlessly as quickly as possible to get everything done with in the time limit.  Maybe I’ve played too many shoot ’em ups…
