When it comes to escape from games, I love playing them both virtually and in real life. There’s something exhilarating about being stuck in a room and having to self puzzles in order to find your way out.

Can You Escape the Castle is a stunningly beautiful game that not only requires you to solve puzzles in order to complete levels, but also provides you with a fun and humorous medieval storyline.

The puzzles definitely aren’t for the faint of heart, and they’ll likely test your patience as well as your problem-solving skills.

One of the things that impressed me the most about Can You Escape the Castle, from Cloudburst Room Escape, Inc, is the incredible graphic detail that the developers put into the game. It almost feels like you’re playing something that belongs on a PC, not an iPhone or an iPad.

Overall, I highly recommend checking out Can You Escape the Castle if you enjoy “escape from” games and you’re looking for something that’s visually stunning.

Can You Escape the Castlecastle_escape.jpg requires iOS 9.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, AppleTV, and iPod touch.

Cord Cutters Rejoice! NewsON is Here

NewsON – Watch Local News Anytime, Anywhere
Price: Free
Rating:
iPhone App Review by

NewsON is a very cool news app that provides users with quick, easy access to local televised news stations, all from the convenience of one app.

Free to use, this app makes it simple to keep up to date on the news in your US hometown, regardless of wherever you are in the world.

Features:

NewsON, by NewsON Media LLC, is not only a great news app for your favorite iOS device, but unlike more world-focused news sources, NewsON is unique in that it is specifically designed to provide users with newscasts from local stations.

Enabling the “location services” function to work on the app allows you to quickly find local news stations nearby wherever you are in the United States, and the app also allows you to save your favorite stations as well.

This way, you can easily keep up to date on the news from multiple “hometowns” all at once.

In addition to streaming news broadcasts of current news, NewsON also enables you to easily view past broadcasts for most stations as well (generally if aired within two days of the current date).

Sending clips of news to friends and family through social media is also an option. Using NewsON is incredibly easy to do, and I found most clips to stream smoothly without any noticeable lag.

Appearance and Layout:

“Functional” would probably be a good way to describe NewsON.

The layout for this app works fine; it’s created to be simple enough to easily navigate, even if you’re unfamiliar with all of the features of the app. The general appearance of the app, however, isn’t particularly impressive.

While there’s nothing “wrong” with the graphics of NewsON, they still don’t stand out as a reason in and of themselves to give the app a try.

Still, the purpose of this app is for providing news clips to users, and the “just average” graphic design of the app does not in any way detract from the overall usability of NewsON.

Value:

As mentioned previously, NewsON is a free app. This definitely gives it an advantage over pay-for-use television station subscriptions, and for users who travel often but want to stay up to date on local home town happenings.

NewsON really is a great option.

An impressive selection of local news stations are featured in the app, and the ability to watch previously aired broadcasts really adds to the value of this app as well.

For users looking for news outside of the United States, however, NewsON isn’t really the app for them.

Protect Your Hearing With TSC Music

iPhone App Review by
iPhoneAppReview.com

Are you ever concerned if all that music you are listening to from your device is impacting your hearing over time?

The issue of long-term exposure to loud music damaging your hearing is well known but too many still don’t bother to do anything about it.

TSC Music in an amazing iPhone app that helps you track your daily listening patterns to help prevent future hearing loss.

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Features

TSC Music, developed by Earlogic, is basically an app that customizes the sound from your music library based on your individual hearing condition.

With a combination of built-in automatic Active EQ (equalizer), active graphs (to visualize your daily hearing condition), and threshold sound conditioning technology (to prevent hearing loss with customized sound signals), the app works to provide a better listening experience for you now and for the future.

This app utilizes five different frequencies to test your hearing to detect the worst frequency of your hearing level and generate customized sounds to maintain a minimal threshold level.

By tracking this data over time the app then can equalize your audio sounds based on your appropriate hearing level.

Appearance and Layout

Upon opening the TSC Music app, you will first need to sign up for an account using Facebook, Google, or a regular email address.

Then once you connect your headphones, you can fiddle around with the different menu options such as configuring your hearing condition, filtering through your music and playlists, and viewing your daily graphs for various data based on your listening usage.

Each menu section is relatively self explanatory and simple to figure out.

Value

Bottom line is that the TSC Music app being offered for free is an excellent deal.

Not only is the app unique, but it’s also beneficial no matter what kind of music and how much music you listen to.

It’s a very useful app for people of all ages, and if the technology really holds up to what it is supposed to do, then it will no doubt help prevent hearing issues for many in the long run.

Kosmik Revenge is a terrific arcade game that’s a high-tech take on an old, popular game, Space Invaders.

Developed by RealTekVR,this promising iOS sci-fi shooter looks to launch players into a techno outer space realm.

Featuring HD graphics and multiple levels with waves of enemies to fight off, this game is a winner!

Features:

With 8 waves in 5 stages, Kosmik Revenge offers plenty of gameplay fun. Gameplay in Kosmik Revenge is fairly straight-forward. You control a small, pixelated spaceship, zipping back and forth across the screen.

Hordes of enemies appear, sometimes taking up various positions after swooping in, and requiring you to shoot them down. Shooting and moving is done just by tapping and swiping on screen.

It’s really easy to do and feels natural quite quickly (just don’t overdo it on your wrist!). You will encounter a variety of levels and many different enemy types, including exciting boss battles.

The slick graphics combined with fun gameplay is certainly worth the free download, especially if you love this style of fast-paced shoot galactic defense.

Amelia Story Book for Kids is a Must-Have Interactive Book

Amelia – Story Book for Kids

iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Amelia – Story Book for Kids

Amelia Story Book for Kids is a recently updated version of the original app; Amelia and Terror of the Night.

This updated effort is simply wonderful and a must-have addition to the apps you buy for your kids.

We love how the creepiness of Amelia, like other books, movies and drawings fits neatly into the same vein as Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. We are incredibly excited about this update: Amelia Story Book for Kids by developer OhNoo Studio.

The app’s eBook story is a brilliant way to entertain your children, and if your aesthetic sensibilities are anything like ours, also entertain yourself while you’re at it.

Concept and Functionality

Like most apps for children, the concept behind Amelia Story Book for Kids very closely resembles a traditional print publication, only one that’s been tweaked with more than a few modifications. For instance, you’ll get standard page turning delight here, as well as text to read.

However, there are many things you could never find in a book. Things such as 60 hidden stars that unlock secret scenes and 4 mini-games to keep your little ones on their toes.

What sets Amelia Story Book for Kids apart from other works that offer added entertainment? The fun factor. Each and every page has elements to be unlocked and observed, rewarding the reader with stars for their efforts.

This means your child not only gets a full and gorgeous eBook style story through Amelia Story Book for Kids, but also an engaging world to explore, poke, and otherwise test at their leisure. We can’t get enough of it, and assuming your children share your quirky art sense, they won’t either.

Graphics and Artwork

Amelia Story Book for Kids

Now, let’s talk about the fun stuff! We’ve been in and around the children’s illustration world for some time, and we have to admit, Amelia Story Book for Kids is an absolute knockout.

The characters are completely unique and the artwork hand drawn and gorgeous to the last drop of ink.

Furthermore, the story is properly balanced between creepy, quirky and endlessly entertaining. The mere premise of the whole thing is enough to keep the child turning pages, as well as the adult, we think. Also, be sure to hold out until the end, as it comes with a surprisingly twisty ending.

Overall Value

Amelia Story Book for Kids is a truly stupendous example of how one should design and create an eBook application for children.

It’s brilliant and accessible from top to bottom, as well as cheap on the wallet. Costing only two bucks, you’ll get one mountain of content, as well as an infinite number of opportunities to spend some quality time with your children.

Amelia Story Book for KidsAmelia and Terror of the Night requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

MrEdison is a terrific app that will not only boost your child’s educational skills, but also entertain them at the same time.

This great app for kids, from developer WindyVision Systems, Inc., is the perfect addition to any parent’s, or grandparent’s, iOS library.

Features:

The MrEdison app will make learning fun and entertaining for any child.  With the help of a Capuchin monkey named “Mr. Edison”, you child will learn a wide variety of skills and subject matter that will help increase their knowledge and educational experience.

Topics included in the app such as learning the alphabet, spelling, and sentence constructing all help your child with their vocabulary and language skills.

Skills such as learning addition, number counting, sequence order, and analysis all assist in improving your child’s mathematical skills.

Each subject or topic is presented as various game formats making learning not only beneficial but enjoyable for your child as well.

Appearance and Layout:

Overall, the appearance of MrEdison is bright, colorful, and simplistic – which is perfect for young ones with short attention spans.

Easy to use and fun to play, younger users will not get frustrated with the simple swiping action they need to act on in the games.

Importantly when working with the app kids only use a swipe or a drag, there is no tapping required. Another nice feature that helps little fingers without an adult’s dexterity.

App features and layout are just as simple to look at and perfect for little ones to see the whole picture.

Letters and numbers are shown bold and obvious making them easier to spot and easier to identify with.  Nice and rewarding encouragement phrases from Mr. Edison the monkey displayed at the end of each game completed is a great plus too.

Value:

The Mr. Edison app is primarily geared to kids in the 3 to 7 age range and it can be lots of fun for parents as they interact with child and help them improve their academic skills. We were very happy to see the variety of topics covered but since it does have a limited age range, the audience looking for this type of app is a bit more limited.

It is a breath of fresh air to see an app available in the market today that combines education with fun, and MrEdison fits the bill.

Edison3MrEdison app requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPad.
