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

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:

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.

Keeping track of your medical history can be a daunting task, especially if you suffer from a chronic condition that requires you to to visit the doctor frequently.

Technology is advancing rapidly in the way of making your medical records readily available to you, but luckily there are ways to keep information at your fingertips.

My Medi Recs is a highly comprehensive medical record tracking app for iPhone that’s also incredibly easy to use.

Developed by FNJ Software, this app was specially designed for sufferers of rare or complicated medical ailments.

Concept and Functionality:

Whether you prefer comprehensive doctor’s notes, a handwritten journal, or other means of medical tracking, keeping everything together and organized can be difficult and tiresome. My Medi Recs was created out of necessity by a patient for patients as a way to keep tabs on treatments.

As stated earlier, My Medi Recs is incredibly easy to use and navigate. I really like the fact that the app puts everything on one menu.

This makes it very easy to locate specific sections so you can show a doctor or take notes. When it comes to entering and tracking medical records, you can be as vague or as specific as you like.

Personally I think you should take full advantage of everything the app offers in terms of tracking allergies, doctor information, diagnosis notes, etc.

It might take you a little while to get everything entered into the app once you download it, but it’s time well spent.

From tracking emergency contacts to being able to add photos to diagnosis notes, My Medi Recs has pretty much everything covered.

I couldn’t think of a single thing that it was lacking in terms of record-keeping, which is pretty impressive.

The well designed medical records app even includes a place for you to store links and other information pertaining to any of your ailments.

People who suffer from chronic conditions often spend a lot of time researching them, and I think it’s very helpful to be able to keep links and documentation in one spot.

Value:

My Medi Recs is available to download from the App Store for $9.99 and is designed for iPhone.

The price may seem a bit high at first, but as the developer notes, “A percentage (20%) of all profits are given to FMDSA and Scleroderma- therefore we, FNJ Software, would like to thank you for helping FMD and Scleroderma sufferers.”

In the end it all boils down to what you think the app could do for you. I do wish users could access a trial version to see if it’s right for them, but it’s a small price to pay for keeping all of your medical data in one spot.

Great software is just as important to a business as its employees. Without a central hub for scheduling, communications, and payroll, it can be incredibly easy to lose track of everything.

Sitrion ONE is an incredibly powerful internal communications system for businesses big and small.

Created by Sitrion, Inc., this service makes it easy to make sure employees and management are on the same page.

Concept and Functionality:

Gone are the days of physical memos, printed handbooks and manuals, and paper punch cards. More and more businesses are taking the brave leap forward into the realm of all-in-one solutions like Sitrion ONE.

Instead of having a bunch of different systems to manage things like time clocks, scheduling, and documents, it’s much easier to have everything together in one place.

Sitrion ONE has tons of features, but it’s incredibly easy to use. I really like the fact that the app almost feels like social media for work thanks to the central hub. This is where the latest company updates, shift swap requests, and other announcements appear.

It’s easy to think that an app with so much going on would be clunky and difficult to use, but Sitrion ONE features seamless navigation, so employees and managers won’t have any problems getting to where they need to go.

Covering everything Sitrion ONE offers would take quite a bit of time, but it’s important to know that the app and service will definitely function as the heart of any human resources department.

With the touch of a button, employees can easily clock in or out of their shift, see their work schedule, track work-related expenses, and request time off.

The service goes beyond timekeeping by allowing employees to communicate with managers directly, even letting them submit questions or share great ideas with the rest of the company.

Value:

Sitrion ONE is available to employees to download from the App Store for free, but your company will need to have a subscription and a valid corporate email address in order to use the service. This requires your company to have Sitrion ONE set up.

Overall, Sitrion ONE is an incredibly useful app for anyone whose workplace utilizes the service. Even if your company isn’t using advanced HR software, it’s definitely worth considering.
