Weather Gods by Meyume Ltd delivers your weather information to your iPhone like never before and is sure to bring out the meteorologist in you.

Features:

Weather Gods is an app featuring just about any weather data you could possibly want, all in a visually appealing and easy-to-use manner.

Specifically, this app provides users with animated, real-time weather prediction information for their regions.

It also features info on moon phases and 24 hour weather charts, as well as international info such as world clocks. The app is best used in an area where you can listen to its sounds (or simply have headphones on hand when using this app); weather-specific sounds keep use of Weather Gods an entertaining experience.

I personally found the historic weather data displayed through the app to be particularly helpful; while weather predictions only project so far into the future, being able to look at past weather trends for a region conveniently provided some insight into what further down into the month looks like.

Although users who want pure data without fun graphics probably won’t be in to what Weather Gods has to offer, consumers who prefer a little more entertainment with their practical applications will surely be fans of this app.

Meyume Ltd touts this app to have impressive graphics, and I found that Weather Gods certainly lived up to this claim.

While most weather apps stick to minimal graphic details and clutter your screen with random ads, Weather Gods only features weather-related (or season-related) graphical displays.

The interactive layout of this app is also impressive, as it really makes it easy to find the information you’re hunting for quickly (but still through a lovely interface).

Overall, the developers of Weather Gods have done a terrific job with its appearance and layout and it’s probably its strongest feature.

Value:

There is no doubt that Weather Gods is a beautiful app. It makes getting weather updates an exciting, new experience–even if it’s just delivering info that you could easily get other places.

Its graphics are far above those of other weather apps. Still, at $3.99, this is definitely a considerably pricey weather app, limiting its target audience to only those consumers who really truly love to get their weather data regularly.

Of course as usual you get what you pay for. If you’re like many people who just want a quick check to see if it will rain today, most free apps will do the job. However, if you have more of an interest in the different aspects of your weather, Weather Gods is hard to beat.  

weatherWeather Gods requires iOS 10.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

If worrying over defending planet earth alone has gotten too mundane, then try out Yahub, Inc.‘s Mars Defence for a new challenge.

Free through the iTunes Store, this fun game keeps things fresh.

Features:

For fans of other tower defense games, this is one you have to check out.

Mars Defence is an excellent example of a well-designed, exciting and fun-to-play tower defense game.

Just like its name suggests, your aim in this app is to fend off martian invaders from attacking your mars colony; you do this through building towers and conquering levels, all while unlocking new tools and weapons to help you in your mission.

As a whole this game is wonderfully easy to learn to play; an optional instructional video at the start of the game really breaks down the basic of the app.

Even though your mission throughout the entire game is consistent overall, Mars Defense constantly felt like a fresh challenge as I played it, thanks to the ever changing supply of weapons and invaders as I worked through the levels.

This game brings together all the key aspects of a tower defense game, and does it in a way that makes it fun, exciting and addictive to play. Well done developers!

Trying out a new game can often make you feel pretty lost. Fortunately, this isn’t a problem in Mars Defence.

It’s a really intuitive game layout, so players will waste minimal time learning how to navigate through the app. At the same time, however, the graphic detail of Mars Defense is somewhat lacking.

While it’s understood that this is a free game with pretty basic graphics, it still would be appreciated to have a little more character thrown into the visual display of the game.

Still, the graphics of this app are arguably perfectly functional, and a lack of great detail doesn’t really detract from the overall fun of the game too much.

Value:

As mentioned before, this is a free game, and for that “price” it definitely has a lot to offer.

Mars Defence might not have the most exciting graphics, but other than that it has just about everything you want in a new game: fun storyline, affordable price tag, easy to navigate layout, and helpful instructional tutorial to start off.

The in-app variety makes you really feel like the developers were very intentional in their design of the game. Overall, Mars Defence is a solid addition to your favorite iOS device.

Have Fun Cleaning the Ocean with Bogga Jewel

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Bogga Jewel is the latest installment in the Bogga game series and quite possibly the best one yet.

Aimed for children ages 6+, Bogga Jewel challenges kids to think about keeping their world clean while also playing a game fun and lighthearted.

Features:

Whether your children are ardent fans of the Bogga games series or if Bogga Jewel, from BoggaTap, is an entirely new idea to them, this app is sure to please.

Bogga Jewel uses simple arrow button commands to control your Bogga player as they work to rid the ocean of litter. Successfully pulling up different items leads to unlocking different exciting prizes to collect.

However, even though Bogga Jewel aimed at audiences 6+, there is actually a good bit of variation within the app, allowing for children even a little younger to enjoy it as well.

Specifically, players can choose to focus on successfully using all their different fishing lines to pull in the trash, or they can choose to focus more on using their “treasures” to recycle them into beautiful unique designs of their own crafting, including their own “sticker books.”

Because of this versatility, it’s easy to see Bogga Jewel appealing to little ones of a range of ages.

Appearance and Layout:

Just like the other games in the Bogga series, Bogga Jewel’s graphics are perfect for its target audience.

The characters are friendly and fun, and the colors are appropriately bright. With a target audience at such a relatively young age, the care taken into creating well done graphics for this app is actually pretty impressive and from the results we can say with confidence that no shortcuts were taken.

Getting around Bogga Jewel is equally well done. Being able to read isn’t really a requirement for figuring out how to play and how to navigate through the app. This is key as it means that its target audience can probably play this game with little need to constantly be asking their parents “how-to” questions.

Value:

As listed above, Bogga Jewel is $2.99 through the iTunes Store. At almost $3, this app is certainly one of the pricier games out today (when compared with the many free options available).

However, Bogga Jewel does offer parents the comfort of knowing that their child is playing a “safe” game, one free of any unwanted pop-ups, advertisements, or unexpected in-app purchases.

For this reason alone, many parents might consider the initial investment fee for this app well worth it.

Overall, Bogga Jewel delivers on the promise of a “safe”, fun and entirely child-friendly experience.

Learning a new language can be a daunting task, but only if you don’t use all of the tools available to you.

Hear, Here – Learn English Homophones is a terrific new app that turns learning English homophones into a game.

It allows you to learn how to distinguish between homophones like air and heir, knight and night, and more.

Concept and Functionality:

Hear, Here, a free app by Jorge Negrotti, is a fun matching game that will definitely help you hone your homophone skills. Unlike other educational games that tend to be boring, this helpful app will teach you to associate homophones both audibly and visually.

Perhaps the best thing about Hear, Here is that there isn’t a learning curve. You don’t have to worry about being incredibly proficient in English in order to play the game.

Even if English is your native language, Hear, Here is a great way to practice homophone recognition so you can sharpen your skills. It’s also a great game for kids who are studying homophones.

No game is complete without achievements or goals. Hear, Here is no exception, and one of the things I really like about the game is that you progressively unlock new words.

There are a total of 300 homophones that you can study. You can even unlock in-game achievements, though it seems that these aren’t integrated with Game Center.

If you’re concerned about forgetting what you’ve learned, Hear, Here includes a very helpful album where you can go back and study homophones you unlocked. You can tap on them in the menu and hear the spoken version of the word, as well as similar sounding words.

Value:

Hear, Here is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. If you happen to find that the app is a helpful learning tool that’s also fun to play, you can optionally unlock an additional 300 words for $1.99.

Personally I think this is a small price to pay for helpful game that makes language learning fun.

I highly recommend giving Hear, Here a try because it’s perfect for both native English speakers as well as those who are learning English as an additional language.

One thing I want to mention before delving into my review of Intro to Revel POS QSR is that I couldn’t actually take the app for the in-depth test drive that I’m used to doing. This is because you need an account with the app, and that means being part of an actual restaurant. Unfortunately everything I’m basing this review on comes from the demo and personal research.

Intro to Revel POS QSR hails from a family of apps that are designed to help businesses with every single aspect their industry. Revel certainly knows what they’re doing when it comes to creating business-related software for processing orders and payments.

Usually I’m weary of apps that promise to do so many different things because they end up being too spread out.

888 Poker — Texas Holdem offers up an incredible virtual playing field for experienced and novice poker players alike.

With real money involved, this simulated Texas Holdem app lets you try your hand at the basics of poker with a relatively small investment.

Features:

If you’re wondering what’s so great about 888 Poker — Texas Holdem, by Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Ltd, let’s start with its array of features.

This app is one created for the purpose of providing poker players with a virtual, easily accessible poker platform at any time they’re craving a game.

The games on 888 Poker are quick with options like the “fast fold” if that’s what you’re looking for.

The app also offers players an impressive selection of available poker games at any given time. Games do require a buy-in for a relatively small sum, and cashout is allowed after you’ve accumulated at least $10 in earnings.

Games are also offered at varying levels of expertise, allowing new players and experienced ones to enjoy both 888 Poker. Overall, this app definitely is a solid take on “virtual” poker.

This app is visually appealing sporting clean, easy to understand interfaces. While the graphics of 888 Poker definitely aren’t particularly impressive, they get the job done.

At the same time, however, a clean, simple poker table is really all you need for a virtual Texas Holdem game, and 888 Poker provides you with just that.

The game is easy to navigate; figuring out how to take advantage of the different in-app features is easily done.

The “need to know” within the app is always clearly displayed, leaving little room for confusion.

Value:

888 Poker — Texas Holdem is a free game to download.

First time players are automatically awarded a “starter” sum within their accounts to allow them to try out some of the features of the app for a limited period of time.

Further playing, however, does require buy-in fees of varying amounts. A minimum cashout value of $10 is required before you can actually withdraw your earnings from the app.

As a whole, I found the “starter” sum to be really appreciated; it’s enough to give you an idea of whether or not this app is one that you want to invest further in.

At the same time, while this virtual poker game provides players with a very non-threatening “environment” in which to play, many poker players would argue that the social aspect of poker is really an important part of the overall game.

888 Poker is a fun app for convenient “any time you want” poker playing, but it can’t provide the same kind of social experience that real, “in-life” poker will.
