When you’re trying to quit smoking, it’s important to remember that everyone is completely different; what works for some people may not work for you.

However, it’s always worth trying different things to help kick the habit and money is a proven motivational factor when it comes to quitting.

Plus, there’s nothing like teaming up with friends and challenging each other.

Project Pink Lung was specifically designed to be an effective tool for smokers who want to try a new way of quitting.

Featuring things like financial challenges and visual motivators, this app is perfect for anyone who is actively trying to quit or has already quit and wants to track progress.

Concept and Functionality:

No matter where you turn, there are as many commercials for products to help you quit smoking as there are for cigarettes themselves. Project Pink Lung, by Quantum Solutions Inc., is a free and portable way to put your money where your smokes are. This is accomplished by connecting the app to Facebook and getting a few of your friends to join the app.

Together you can pledge money to a challenge and the winner of the challenge gets their money back, as well as other winnings from the pot. The one thing to keep in mind is that this is based on the honor system; there’s no way to actively track and monitor your friends to make sure they’re not smoking.

Project Pink Lung is more than a social challenge app. It also serves as a way to show you just how much money you’ve saved by not smoking.

If you’re craving a cigarette, you can choose to be scared by seeing somewhat gruesome pictures of the effects smoking has on your body. If you don’t want to go that route, you can be distracted with task ideas that will help you take your mind off your craving.

Project Pink Lung – Quite Smoking iPhone App

One thing I noticed is you have to have Facebook in order to take advantage of Project Pink Lung. This is somewhat unfortunate because I think the app still serves an incredibly useful purpose even if you decide not to take advantage of the challenge feature.

While it may be true that connecting your Facebook account to the app helps you reach your goal of quitting, in our view it should be an option.

Along with being able to participate in financial challenges and distractions, Project Pink Lung allows you to record the times you’ve slipped up and smoked. Instead of ridiculing you for doing so, the app gently asks how many cigarettes you’ve had and resets your “last smoked” data.

Value:

Project Pink Lung is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no ads or in-app purchases to worry about, either.

Overall, Project Pink Lung is an incredibly useful app for anyone who is either in the process of quitting smoking or has already quit and wants to keep track of their progress.

Pledging money is fun and is proven to be a great motivational factor, but the other tools in Project Pink Lung help just as much.

Think Quickly in NumerDropHeaven

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

NumerDropHeaven is a new fast-action puzzle game that will challenge your quick thinking and reaction skills.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app combines a sense of “missions” with more traditional “Bejeweled-style” gameplay.

Features:

NumerDropHeaven, by the up and coming developer Takashi Mikami, challenges players to think quickly as they direct falling number-coded puzzle pieces.

Wisely directing these pieces will mean advancing within the app and completing set “missions.” Failing, however, will mean that you’ll need to retry that level.

In fact, it is these character-guided “missions” that sets NumerDropHeaven apart from other apps with similarly styled puzzle challenges.

While the idea behind this mission-style is quite solid, and it should be a fun addition to this popular gaming concept, the actual execution of it needs to be tweeked a bit.

The instructional entry video is very prolonged. While a minor issue, the English within the app is also somewhat confusing to understand.

While not a groundbreaking new type of puzzle, NumerDropHeaven is a fun new combination of games already very popular in other already-existing apps.

Appearance and Layout:

The graphics NumberDropHeaven, or just Number Drop as its iTunes icon states, are perfect for a game of this type.

The inclusion of cartoon-style characters gives this app an added visual element that helps to visually elevate it above other non-themed games of its type.

While the overall appearance of NumerDropHeaven is pretty typical for an app of its type, the layout of the game really is lacking.

Specifically, navigating through NumerDropHeaven was not entirely intuitive. Additionally, sometimes “back/forward” directional arrows didn’t seem to be responsive, which further added to frustration when figuring out my way through this app.

Value:

NumerDropHeaven is a free app. There are some optional in-app purchases within the game, however, and an informational screen immediately at the beginning of the app warns you of this.

These purchases really aren’t necessary for enjoying the general features offered in the app, however, making this a nice game to try.

NumerDropHeaven is definitely an app you can play for free without feeling like you’re missing out on any special features. Plus that fact that it will instantly feel familiar since at its core it’s a version of the ever-popular “match falling puzzle pieces quickly” gaming concept so you can enjoy it right away.

Overall, we found the concept of NumerDropHeaven to be intriguing in the way it combines elements form other popular games.

As stated the navigation through this app, as well as the English in it, needs some work, and we’re confident these improvements will come.

That said, we can’t wait to see where this talented developer takes this interesting concept next.

IOTransfer Is a Fantastic iTunes Alternative for Media and Data Management

iTunes is a pretty decent way to manage your iPhone or your iPad, but sometimes their software just isn’t for you. Luckily there are alternatives available.

One terrific alternative to Apple is IOTransfer, a slick utility that makes device management virtually painless.

This iTunes alternative is a great way to transfer media between your computer and your iDevice.

Concept and Functionality:

I’ve tried other iPhone management software before, but I found most of them to be buggy, clunky, and downright difficult to use.

IOTransfer is a pleasant surprise and is a program that would definitely serve its purpose as a way to transfer media between your computer and your iPhone or iPad.

Downloading and installing IOTransfer was pretty painless. I didn’t find any bloatware or spam while installing, which is always a good thing. Once installed, all you have to do is connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer.

Once connected, you’ll see all of your media broken down into groups on the left side of the screen. This makes navigation incredibly easy, and personally I like the overall layout of IOTransfer.

I don’t think users will have trouble with locating what’s on their iDevice.

IOTransfer includes plenty of features to make it a great alternative to the ever-popular iTunes software. Unlike many other programs, IOTransfer doesn’t bottleneck you to one media type.

IOTransfer offers seamless transfer capabilities for videos, photos, and music. Where iTunes can be troublesome, and even buggy, IOTransfer seems to take up fewer resources than iTunes. If you’re running an older computer, this can be a great thing.

Naturally there are limitations for the trial version of IOTransfer, but I think it gives you enough of a chance to take the software for a test drive to see if it’s right for you.

Value:

IOTransfer is available to download from their website for free, but only as a limited trial. You’ll be able to take the software for a test drive, but you won’t be able to take advantage of all features without paying for an annual subscription.

A single license subscription for one computer and one year will cost you $24.99, and a family license for three computers and one year will cost you $29.95.

Overall, IOTransfer is a great iTunes alternative if you’re looking to back your iPad or iPhone up to your computer, as well as transfer media between your computer and mobile device.

Research Heirlooms with StuffSavvy

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

StuffSavvy is perfect for anyone wanting to research their old treasures, heirlooms and that weird thing in the basement your grandmother left you. It’s a way to bring the excitement of Antiques Roadshow right to your living room. How cool is that?

While not meant to replace an official appraisal, this app can still provide you with a quick estimate of the value of an item.

Features:

If you’ve ever felt less than “savvy” about your collection of “stuff,” this cool app, by Apjam Ltd, is here to help.

Users simply submit a photo of whatever item they are curious about by uploading it to the app. If you like you can also add a self-written description.

A “Savvy Specialist” will then provide you with an emailed, detailed description of the item and its worth within 24 hours; this service costs $4.99 per item inquiry submitted.

Testing out StuffSavvy, I found this “24-hour turnaround to be true; I was emailed once my item was submitted, with a follow-up email soon after that gave me detailed information about the history, estimated retail value, and predicted rarity of my item.

The whole process was seamlessly smooth, and I got the information I wanted in a quick, convenient manner.  

Appearance and Layout:

StuffSavvy iPhone App Review

StuffSavvy iPhone App

Easily my favorite part of this app was its design. StuffSavvy features an incredibly easy to use layout.

First time users should have no difficulty with navigating through this app. Because the intended use of this app is fairly straightforward, the layout of the app is very straightforward as well.

Using the app is really only done for one end of the exchange (when you submit a photo with/without an item description), and all communication regarding the collectable is relayed to you via email.

Because of this, the layout of StuffSavvy is very, very simple to understand.

The example photographs and general graphics of the app are very tastefully chosen, making using StuffSavvy an aesthetically pleasing experience overall.

Value:

StuffSavvy is free to download. However, actually utilizing the features of the app costs users about $5 per inquiry, and at that rate, researching a closet full of collectables would certainly add up to a fairly significant fee.

If you’re selective, though, the value of the items will far outweigh the cost of finding out what they’re worth.

Still, for users who wish to sell items but don’t want to take the time to research current prices themselves, StuffSavvy could be a very useful app.

Overall, its features and design are great, and it is extremely useful in the right context.

That being said, the fee associated with finding out about your “stuff” might make you think twice before actually using it for every little thing lying around.
