Video Rewards is a free app that’s great for turning some of your downtime into gift cards. For iPhone and iPad, it allows you to earn credits by watching videos, referring friends, and completing surveys.

Developed by Flashpoint Media LLC, this app is great for anyone who would like to passively earn cool rewards like gift cards.

Concept and Functionality:

In order to begin using Video Rewards, you have to create an account with the service. This is pretty quick and easy, and you only have to provide a couple basic things like an email address and a password. Once your account is set up, you can begin watching videos and earning credits.

One of the things I like about Video Rewards is that the app is organized and it provides users with multiple ways to earn credits. For example, you could watch a few videos, complete a survey, and send out a few referral links via social media. All of these tasks will help you are credits.

I do want to point out the fact that Video Rewards offers a fairly low payout. Videos pay five credits and usually last 15 or 30 seconds. In order to redeem anything, you’ll have to accumulate at least 5000 credits, which is the minimum for a $2.50 Amazon gift card. To put that into perspective, you’d have to watch at least 1000 ads.

Features:

Video Rewards is pretty straightforward, but there are a few extra features that are worth mentioning. The most important feature, and one that we greatly appreciate, is the fact that the app doesn’t require you to enter any personally identifiable information in order to redeem rewards.

Everything is handled via PayPal (if you choose to redeem the PayPal gift card) or by virtual gift card code.

As I’ve pointed out before, Video Rewards goes above and beyond rewarding users for watching ads. I really do like the fact that the app offers flexibility when it comes to earning credits, but I really wish there wasn’t such a massive gap between payout and reward requirements.

Value:

Video Rewards is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

This is actually quite a competitive space, with Perk TV and AppTrailers being a couple of the others that compete with Video Review. The edge that Video Review has is that they offer unlimited offers.

Users don’t have to worry about forking over any cash, but the app will take a valuable chunk of time if you’re serious about earning enough credits to redeem gift cards.

Overall, Video Rewards is definitely a legitimate way to passively earn gift cards by watching ads, filling out surveys, and referring friends. However, be prepared to put in a lot of effort.

Sharing important moments and events via social media is fun, but it’s difficult to do so in moderation. Plus, you can’t always control who can see what you’re sharing or when you share it.

dripthat is an innovative new iPhone app that gives users a whole new way to create and share photos and videos in “drips”.

Developed by dripthat, LLC, the app features extensive control over content, awesome editing tools, and a cool new way to share important moments with friends, family, and the world.

Concept and Functionality:

dripthat is much more than a photo app, it’s a social networking app that allows users to create drips of content and have ultimate control over what they share. Drips can include photos and short video clips, which is something that’s not only awesome, but quite unique.

I really like the fact that dripthat is easy to navigate, especially for first time users. Setting up the app is a breeze and there’s even a brief tutorial that helps walk you through the basics of the app.

Best of all creating drips is super easy, and you can do so on the spot or by uploading media from your camera roll.

When it comes to social networking and sharing, dripthat definitely has its stuff together. I know of many apps that try to do the same thing, but none of them come close to the feature-rich options in this app.

Plus, the concept of “drips” is pretty neat, as it means you’re less likely to overload friends by uploading a bunch of photos and videos at once.

Features:

dripthat comes with plenty of awesome features to make your social networking experience even more awesome. For example, the app supports control over who your content is shared with, when it’s shared, and much more.

You can even protect drips from being saved/screen-shotted.

Also, dripthat comes with built-in editing tools so you can tweak everything before you share it with the world. Even if you don’t feel like sharing with everyone, the app offers an unprecedented amount of control over your drip’s audience.

As with most social sharing apps, users can easily communicate and interact with each other in dripthat. From liking photos to sharing public drips and leaving comments, the app definitely inspires social interaction.

Value:

dripthat is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. When it comes down to it, this app is a fantastic standalone social network that offers unique ways to share photos and videos with friends, family, and more.

Plus, I really like the fact that dripthat offers tons of control over media. I highly recommend checking out dripthat if you love sharing moments with the world and you’re looking for a cool new way to do so.

Puzzle Fans Will Love BlastBall MAX

BlastBall MAX
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

BlastBall MAX is a challenging new game that forces players to think on their toes to solve ever-changing challenges.

Developed by Monkube Ltd., it’s currently available for $2.99 through the iTunes Store.

Features:

BlastBall MAX is a puzzle game that will delight users of all skill levels.

As indicated by its name, BlastBall MAX challenges players to get at least five similarly colored balls in a row in order to “blast” them and receive points.

However, doing this seemingly simple task is easier said than done, as twists to the game include placing balls, sliding and rotating tiles, and strategizing how to use special balls with their particular powers. New players to the game are treated to a set of simple instructions to guide them.

I found the level of gameplay to be appropriately challenging; the app got progressively more complex the further I moved through it.

As a whole, BlastBall MAX offers puzzle-lovers a fun, new challenging app to master.

BlastBall MAX iPhone Game

While it probably won’t appeal to anyone who prefers fast-paced, time sensitive puzzles, BlastBall MAX will definitely be loved by anyone who appreciates less stressful, slower-paced thinking games.

Appearance and Layout:

This app features a clean, user-friendly screen at all times. Graphics are simple but appropriate, and the instructions are always provided in easily legible fonts, even on smaller screens.

BlastBall’s color scheme is bright but not blinding, and the in-app animations are perfectly pleasing as well. “Blasting” balls sets off a satisfying chain of reactions, and once you’ve figured out how to use the different balls/powers wisely, you’ll find yourself entertained by even more fun little animations.

Overall, the appearance of BlastBall MAX is just as great as its gameplay; both aspects of this game will leave players well satisfied.

Value:

As mentioned previously, BlastBall MAX can be purchased for $2.99 through the iTunes Store. While this game definitely features great challenges and equally awesome graphics, this price still seems a little steep, particularly when considering the many “free” puzzle games currently in the iTunes Store today.

Even though BlastBall MAX doesn’t have any in-app advertisements cluttering up your screen or interrupting your games, we’d like to see the price come down a bit.

This would no doubt drive even greater uptake than this well designed and implemented puzzler has already has enjoyed. After playing it we can honestly say it’s worth every penny but the fact is it’s hard for most to purchase a game for a few bucks over trying out other less expensive options.

App Shortcuts for Fire TV Pro
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

There’s a lot of talk these days about cutting the cord, the cable tv cord that is, and with cable tv prices where they are, who can blame anyone for doing it.

To do it and still have access to rich streaming content you’ll need a broadband connection and some sort of device to connect to that content. Services such as Netflix and Pandora, to name just two, are easily brought to your non-smart tv via add-on boxes from any number of vendors.

Features

If you’re using one of Amazon’s Fire devices, either Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, then you need to download this app pronto!

App Shortcuts for Fire TV Pro makes using Amazon Fire TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick quick and easy and gets you from app to app with just a touch of your finger.

This app, developed by RSTK Studios, provides a simple one-touch interface to your Fire apps as well as duplicating the functions of your Fire remote.

App Shortcuts for Fire TV Pro iPhone App

App Shortcuts for Fire TV Pro iPhone App

Start up your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, start the app, and put down the Fire remote, you’re good to go.

Set Up and Functionality

The ability of this app to control your Fire TV or Stick requires that you have a “side loaded” app on your Fire device as well as this app on your iPhone or iPad. So, there is some legwork required here, it’s not just a simple app install. That being said, it is not a difficult chore, just a few more steps than what you’re used to.

The process is well defined and this reviewer had no problems completing the install of the app on a Fire Stick and connecting it to the app running on an iPhone. You’ll need to provide a name for your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick and then enter it’s IP address into the app. Again, not a big deal and the detailed instructions provided tell you exactly how to do it.

Value:

The use of the Amazon Fire TV or Amazon Fire TV Stick provides consumers with two excellent choices for adding streaming apps to any TV or monitor. They are both low cost additions and provide a wide range of apps to choose from.

The value of these devices is significantly enhanced by adding this app to the mix. It makes bouncing around from app to app super easy and while the free version gets the job done, the Pro version adds in a virtual remote that mimics the one that came with your Fire device.

We highly recommend this app for anyone who is using, or considering using, either of Amazon’s Fire devices, the Fire TV or the Fire TV Stick.

If you have pets, you know just how much they mean to you. However, sometimes it’s difficult to keep track of aspects of your pet’s life such as vaccination dates, weight, and contacts.

VIPetBook is perfect for pet owners, vets, groomers, and shelters helping them keep track of vital records for an unlimited number of pets.

Concept and Functionality:

While pet apps certainly aren’t new, VIPetBook, a brand-new app for iPhone and iPad by Ioannis Kousis, takes pet record keeping to a whole new level.

This is an app that goes well above and beyond simply tracking important dates.

One of the things I like the most about VIPetBook is that it’s incredibly easy to navigate even if the pet database is large. This is fantastic news for vets, groomers, and animal shelters, as it means they can keep track of animals and access records easily.

Also, VIPetBook lets users add as much or as little information about each pet as they would like.

What this means is anyone can use the app for anything, whether it’s just to keep track of appointments and procedures, weight, important contacts, or anything of the sort.

VIPetBook

VIPetBook iPhone App

Personally I’ve never encountered an app like VIPetBook. It’s clear that the developer has made the app flexible enough for everyone, from pet owners to vets and everyone in between.

Features:

As you can probably imagine, VIPetBook is loaded with features.

From appointment tracking and reminders to data entry capabilities for things like procedures and vet costs, pretty much everything is covered in the app.

When it comes to building a profile for an animal, you can be as detailed or as brief as you like, including linking each pet to a set of photos and contacts.

While VIPetBook has everything covered, one feature I’d love to see implemented into the app is a way to transfer pet profiles from device to device, either via account or export/import.

This would allow vets and groomers to easily add new animals to their database and even seamlessly update the animal’s profile and records on your device, as well.

Value:

VIPetBook is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

Overall, VIPetBook is a must-have pet app for anyone who has animals, especially if they’re not already keeping track of important records.

Vets, groomers, and shelter workers can take advantage of VIPetBook’s features, as well, making it an incredibly flexible app that’s right for everyone.
