Win Cool Prizes with CrazyLex


CrazyLex – Watch 4 Fun, Win 4 Real
Price: Free
iPhone App Review by

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

CrazyLex–Watch for Fun, Win for Real gives users opportunities to win cool prizes. With a video-watching method of earning in-app “bidding money” this app in a unique take on earning prize items.


As stated, this is an app that helps users do just what its name suggests. That is, CrazyLex, an app by Crazy Solutions LLC, is designed to give users the opportunity to win prizes just for watching videos.

Specifically, users within the app create accounts and then are directed to watching different advertisement videos. Most of these videos are under a minute long, and the “points” you accumulate through watching these videos can be used in your weekly “betting.”

Betting is done on actual real-life items, many of them technology oriented (cameras, video games, fitness bands, etc.). If you end up being the closest bet to the prize’s number, you actually get to win that prize.

However, even though it’s exciting to get to earn real life prizes for “free,” the number of videos you would need to watch in order to place reasonable “bets” on prizes is pretty high if you don’t take advantage of other ways to gain points.

If you invite your friends to join then you start earning “multilevel” points. This is where you earn a percentage of the points that your friends earn.

In addition to watching videos and earning from referrals, there are also tournaments. These give you the opportunity to win further prizes without guessing any secret number but only climbing the charts by watching videos (and also count the videos seen by referrals for added credit).

So, if you’re willing to take advantage of all the ways the app lets you gain points, including getting your friends involved to earn multilevel points and playing tournaments, you may benefit quite a bit from what this app. Otherwise CrazyLex is going to appeal mostly to users who have lots of free time on their hands to watch videos.

Appearance and Layout:

CrazyLex iPhone App

CrazyLex is a relatively cleanly designed app. It’s easy to navigate, both through the videos and to the prizes pages. Keeping track of your bets is also easily done, as all numbers are clearly displayed.

Since video-watching makes up the bulk of this app, minimal work seems to have been done in curating the actual in-app graphical scheme; however, this minimalistic approach fits fine with the purpose of the app.

Overall, the easy-to-use layout is probably one of the most refreshing features of CrazyLex. CrazyLex is currently available in both English and Italian.


CrazyLex is a free app that is slated to help you win actual real life prizes. Because of this, the value of the app is pretty good to some users.

There is an effort involved in winning prizes so don’t expect something for nothing. However, if you’re willing to watch videos and refer friends, and you have a bit of luck to be the closest bet, this app can be quite rewarding.

While this high number of videos is understandable given the quality of the prizes offered, time will tell if it’s the effort is reasonable enough to achieve a large user base. Hopefully the developers will be tracking how the app is used and will tweek it as needed to make this app a huge success.

As a whole, CrazyLex is a fun idea for its target audience of people who have the time to watch lots of videos.

You’ll Feel Like a Mom With My Baby Sim

My Baby Sim iPhone App

My Baby Sim iPhone Game

My Baby Sim is an entertaining baby simulator game that instantly turns you into a mom. Ever wonder what it’s like to care for a little one? If so then this is the perfect game for you.

Developed by Sviatoslav Volodymyruvych Litynsky Private Enterpreneur, this app tends to help you if you are about to become a parent. It will try to help you experience the good and bad sides of having your own baby.

It will do that with various set of features that are well-thought and interestingly implemented across the game. It is a highly functional game that is fun and a good learning experience at the same time.

Concept & Gameplay

The game is beautifully organized, although the starting menu seems little bit confusing, well for me at least as a first time user of the app.

From the main menu you can easily start a new game. When you start a new game you need to select the details about the baby you want to take care of in the game.

After that you are responsible for the baby and you need to take care of it. So, basically it is a gameplay in which you give or do certain tasks centered around your baby.

My Baby Sim tends to enable you to experience the real feel of parenting. There are several activities that this app enables you to do. You can walk the baby, hire a nanny, take it in your arms or put in the cradle.

You can also do several other activities for his care, like measure the temperature, feed or bathe it. The funny thing is that you can also change the diaper and see how the feeling of doing so is in real life, without the smell.

You can also shake the rattle or sing a song to your bundle of joy. No matter what activity you choose to do, the game will show appropriate effects and sounds. Don’t expect much from the graphics and sound effects, though.

They are nothing special, just average, regular effects that are expected in this type of game. This is definitely an area where future updates can have a big impact on this very promising game.

Each game you play can be saved and later accessed at any time. That also means that you can add additional babies and take care of more than one. This can be a cool way to check if you are ready for more than one baby. That is a pretty neat feature.

Overall Value

Although the graphics of the game could have been done better, My Baby Sim is still an entertaining game that can help anyone to experience the feeling of being a parent. Well, at least at in a game.

The game has great features that make it interesting to play. There are tons of activities you can do with your newborn and all of them are well thought out. We liked both the concept of the game and the gameplay.

The whole game is relatively intuitive, although you’ll need some time to get past the starting menu and get oriented properly.

This could be a great game for curious kids or would-be parents because it can teach them few things about caring for a real baby.


My Baby Sim requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Full Control is an Amazing Remote Control for Your Mac


FullControl: Remote Control for Mac
Price: Free

Full Control iPhone App

Full Control iPhone App

Full Control is a very slick app that let’s you control your Mac from a distance over WiFi.

Developed by Francesco Burelli, this app turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a full-fledged remote control for your Mac.


To get started you have to download the app onto your iDevice and also download the “helper” app onto your Mac. This is the program that talks to the app and would likely always be available for your use by it being perched up in the upper right program bar of your Mac.

After that you just make sure your iPhone is connected to the same WiFi as your Mac, start the app, select the Mac that it has detected as the one you want to control, and voila, you are remotely controlling your Mac.

The set up is pretty simple and other than a delay in completing the connection, we had no trouble getting it all up and running.

Once you have it running you’ll see your Mac application icons on your iPhone along with some control icons that Full Control provides to make controlling all the various functions of your Mac from your iPhone a snap.

Full Control iPhone App

We found the virtual trackpad area is very cool and lets you move a circle around your Mac screen and actually control anything just as you would with your mouse.

The remote keyboard is also quite useful. Just set the text edit cursor where you want text to go and start typing.

If you’re using your Mac to play music or videos, especially if you’re using something like Chromecast, and you don’t want to have to be right at your Mac to make changes to the music or video controls, this app is ideal.

Controls and Functionality:

Overall we found the app to be very intuitive and with a bit of poking around you’ll quickly have it all figured out.

You can easily perform all kinds of functions on your Mac, such as launch applications, open/close windows and browser tabs, enter text, put your Mac to sleep, restart it, and many more.

One thing we learned about the keyboard is if you select the Mac Command key, it stays selected so after you enter a command you may think you’re inputting text but you’re actually entering more commands.

There’s no doubt that this app is a great idea, but part of being a great idea is that you can’t help but want more from it. In our use we found the connection between the iPhone app and the Mac Helper app on the Mac to be spotty (with solid WiFi) and we had to reset the app a number of times to get it working again.

It’s a “wow” experience and definitely delivers the goods, when it works, but you expect a remote control to just work whenever you pick it up. While the reset is not a big deal it is an inconvenience.

One suggestion we have is that it would be great if a subset of the controls, maybe just the media controls, were available via an Apple Watch app.

Overall Value:

Full Control is clearly a well designed app that can be incredibly useful for anyone wanting to control their Mac from a distance. If your Mac is a media player, this is an especially useful app to have on your iPhone.

We would like to see some of the kinks worked out so that the connection issues that we saw go away, and we’re confident the developer will improve this as time goes on.

The bottom line is that if you’re looking for a remote control app for your Mac, Full Control gets a solid recommendation from us. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.

Scattergories is Fast-Paced and Fun

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Scattergories is the official app of the popular board game and more fun than ever.

Play it at your next party or the next time some friends stop by. You can even challenge your Facebook friends or some random opponents.


Anyone already familiar with the popular group board game “Scattergories” will be excited about this app being freely available on their iOS devices from Magmic Inc.

Currently, players can connect their Scattergories app account to their Facebook account to find other friends who are also using the app, or they can choose to play random opponents as well.

Playing Scattergories without connecting to your Facebook account is also a possibility. Like the boardgame, the idea for this game is to be able to think up creative answers in specific categories with all answers starting with a pre-designated letter.

Games are run in only 90 second intervals, so they go by very quickly. Slight misspellings are assumed to be typos and allowed to generate points for your overall score, and you’re also allowed to dispute any answers that you feel were unfairly rejected.

However, there does not appear to currently be a method to dispute the answers that you feel were incorrectly accepted (such as your opponent’s answers), which could be frustrating. I also felt like I kept getting the same starting letters with this Scattergories app–an issue that can become pretty frustrating if you want to play this app for any length of time.

Appearance and Layout:

Overall, I was very pleased with both the appearance and the layout of this app. In-app colors are all bright and cheery, playing well with the mood of the app.

Fonts are easy to read, and typing buttons are made large enough that making typos shouldn’t be much of a problem. Instructions for how to play are provided to first time users. Navigating to and from the home screen is easy to do.


As stated previously, this is a free app. In-app coin purchases can be made that might increase your chance of winning, but these definitely aren’t required.

With a quick, creative mind, you probably won’t be too interested in making any purchases at all.

It’s a great party game and an easy selection for family game night because it’s so much fun to play.

Still, there are issues with this app that keep it from being the “perfect” game. There are little quirks (like the sometimes questionable answer choices) showing that some improvements can definitely still be made for future versions of Scattergories.

scattScattergories requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
