Learning a new language can be a daunting task, but only if you don’t use all of the tools available to you.

Hear, Here – Learn English Homophones is a terrific new app that turns learning English homophones into a game.

It allows you to learn how to distinguish between homophones like air and heir, knight and night, and more.

Concept and Functionality:

Hear, Here, a free app by Jorge Negrotti, is a fun matching game that will definitely help you hone your homophone skills. Unlike other educational games that tend to be boring, this helpful app will teach you to associate homophones both audibly and visually.

Perhaps the best thing about Hear, Here is that there isn’t a learning curve. You don’t have to worry about being incredibly proficient in English in order to play the game.

Even if English is your native language, Hear, Here is a great way to practice homophone recognition so you can sharpen your skills. It’s also a great game for kids who are studying homophones.

No game is complete without achievements or goals. Hear, Here is no exception, and one of the things I really like about the game is that you progressively unlock new words.

There are a total of 300 homophones that you can study. You can even unlock in-game achievements, though it seems that these aren’t integrated with Game Center.

If you’re concerned about forgetting what you’ve learned, Hear, Here includes a very helpful album where you can go back and study homophones you unlocked. You can tap on them in the menu and hear the spoken version of the word, as well as similar sounding words.

Value:

Hear, Here is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. If you happen to find that the app is a helpful learning tool that’s also fun to play, you can optionally unlock an additional 300 words for $1.99.

Personally I think this is a small price to pay for helpful game that makes language learning fun.

I highly recommend giving Hear, Here a try because it’s perfect for both native English speakers as well as those who are learning English as an additional language.

In the ever-changing world of the restaurant business, new technology is always hitting the market. Whether it’s aimed towards increasing productivity, managing your employees, or becoming the financial hub of your business, you always have tons of choices if you’re a business owner.

Intro to Revel POS QSR is the incredible go-to app for your restaurant.

Created by Revel Systems iPad POS, this all-in-one iPad app lets you take orders, accept payment, and even manage payroll. The software is trusted by numerous brands such as Cinnabon, Popeyes, and others.

Concept and Functionality:

One thing I want to mention before delving into my review of Intro to Revel POS QSR is that I couldn’t actually take the app for the in-depth test drive that I’m used to doing. This is because you need an account with the app, and that means being part of an actual restaurant. Unfortunately everything I’m basing this review on comes from the demo and personal research.

Intro to Revel POS QSR hails from a family of apps that are designed to help businesses with every single aspect their industry. Revel certainly knows what they’re doing when it comes to creating business-related software for processing orders and payments. This particular app is geared towards quick service eateries (fast food) where menu items are fairly cut-and-dried.

Naturally an app like Intro to Revel POS QSR takes a bit of time to set up once you’ve invested in the software, but it’s time well spent. You have the ability to customize everything to your liking, including payment methods and item modifiers.

Revel was even named the best iPad POS system by TopTenReviews, so business owners can feel confident that they’re investing in software that’s well-known in the industry.

Usually I’m weary of apps that promise to do so many different things because they end up being too spread out.

I’m happy to say I found this app to be just the opposite.

Intro to Revel POS QSR is simple enough to navigate easily, but robust enough to allow business owners to solely rely on the software.

For example, business owners can use the Revel system to create loyalty programs, manage inventory, track sales data, manage payroll, and so much more.

One of the main features of Intro to Revel POS QSR is the ability to continue functioning even if the internet goes down; the app will simply sync data to the cloud once everything is back online.

Overall, Intro to Revel POS QSR is an incredible app that will certainly give business owners an advantage. It’s backed up by a world-renowned company that has earned quite the reputation in the market, so you know you’re putting your faith in a great product.

888 Poker — Texas Holdem offers up an incredible virtual playing field for experienced and novice poker players alike.

With real money involved, this simulated Texas Holdem app lets you try your hand at the basics of poker with a relatively small investment.

Features:

If you’re wondering what’s so great about 888 Poker — Texas Holdem, by Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Ltd, let’s start with its array of features.

This app is one created for the purpose of providing poker players with a virtual, easily accessible poker platform at any time they’re craving a game.

The games on 888 Poker are quick with options like the “fast fold” if that’s what you’re looking for.

The app also offers players an impressive selection of available poker games at any given time. Games do require a buy-in for a relatively small sum, and cashout is allowed after you’ve accumulated at least $10 in earnings.

Games are also offered at varying levels of expertise, allowing new players and experienced ones to enjoy both 888 Poker. Overall, this app definitely is a solid take on “virtual” poker.

Appearance and Layout:

This app is visually appealing sporting clean, easy to understand interfaces. While the graphics of 888 Poker definitely aren’t particularly impressive, they get the job done.

At the same time, however, a clean, simple poker table is really all you need for a virtual Texas Holdem game, and 888 Poker provides you with just that.

The game is easy to navigate; figuring out how to take advantage of the different in-app features is easily done.

The “need to know” within the app is always clearly displayed, leaving little room for confusion.

Value:

888 Poker — Texas Holdem is a free game to download.

First time players are automatically awarded a “starter” sum within their accounts to allow them to try out some of the features of the app for a limited period of time.

Further playing, however, does require buy-in fees of varying amounts. A minimum cashout value of $10 is required before you can actually withdraw your earnings from the app.

As a whole, I found the “starter” sum to be really appreciated; it’s enough to give you an idea of whether or not this app is one that you want to invest further in.

At the same time, while this virtual poker game provides players with a very non-threatening “environment” in which to play, many poker players would argue that the social aspect of poker is really an important part of the overall game.

888 Poker is a fun app for convenient “any time you want” poker playing, but it can’t provide the same kind of social experience that real, “in-life” poker will.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror is a fascinating game that takes the general concept of Pokemon Go and gives it a dark twist.

Offered for free through the iTunes Store, this app makes exploring all your local lurks a new experience.

Features:

With an intriguing name, Dystopia Desolation, by Jonathan Corner, actually offers players a game in concept that is much more familiar to many of them than its name implies.

As indicated previously, the general concept of this app rests on much of the same idea as the instant success app, Pokemon Go. However, unlike in Pokemon Go where your primary purpose involves the capturing and evolving of relatively cute creatures, Dystopia Desolation features a terrifying gang of zombies and other monsters.

These creatures are scattered throughout your actual GPS map, meaning that you travel to various locations in order to add them to your crew.

Characters can be leveled up throughout the app, making them more powerful and more likely to win your in-app battles.

For fans who revel in the dark side and love monsters, Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror provides a good number of very cool characters to search out.

However, for others who are just want to find characters, the app doesn’t really offer you anything that the already popular Pokemon Go doesn’t already. In other words, this game has a pretty specific target audience.

Appearance and Layout:

The appearance of Dystopia Desolation really is not its strong point. Characters are decently detailed, but it’s really their names and special features that sets them apart more than any particularly impressive graphics.

Some monsters even appeared somewhat blurry at times.  As far as the layout of the game goes, however, the app’s Apple Store page provides helpful tips on how to best navigate and utilize the app, and with these bits of advice, figuring out how to get around Dystopia Desolation is really doable.

Value:

Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror, as mentioned previously, is a game designed for a very specific target audience. With this in mind, this game is an excellent value and definitely worth a download.

It’s free with optional in-app purchases available if you want to advance your characters faster. The characters are unique, even though the concept of the game is definitely borrowed from an already existing app.

While the graphics of Dystopia Desolation aren’t particularly impressive, they do get the job done and don’t detract from the overall fun of the app.

Overall, while Dystopia Desolation may not be seen as an entertaining app by some, it will probably be well received by its target audience.

Texas Jack Poker Combines Two Card Games into One

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Card games are certainly plentiful on the App Store, and the nice thing is that each one usually offers something different for players to enjoy.

Texas Jack Poker is an entertaining and unique card game that combines Texas hold ’em and blackjack.

It’s a little tricky to get used to, but it’s definitely fun to play once you have the basics down.

Concept and Gameplay:

I play card games relatively infrequently, so I tend to forget basic rules fairly quickly. This is especially true when it comes to various types of poker games.

Luckily Texas Jack Poker, created by Sheldon Martin, teaches new players the basics of the game through a helpful video that can be accessed from the main menu. It covers all of the fundamentals needed to play, so I definitely recommend checking it out when you first download the game.

I won’t go in-depth on how to play Texas Jack Poker, but I will say that it can be very confusing for new players. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to move the game along. The nice thing about this is that it is single player, so you don’t have to worry about holding up others while learning how to play.

In terms of graphics navigation, I really like the fact that Texas Jack Poker is low-key on both. You won’t see flashy animations or a bunch of fanfare; this is obviously designed to be a simple and straightforward card game.

Features:

Just because Texas Jack Poker is single player doesn’t mean you can’t compete with others around the world.

The game features a built-in leaderboard (separate from Game Center), but you have to create an account in order to be ranked.

Texas Jack Poker also includes an impressive statistics section that gives you a detailed breakdown of your performance on a daily, weekly, monthly, and all time basis.

Value:

Texas Jack Poker is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There is a heavy presence of ads, they can optionally be disabled for $0.99. One thing I couldn’t figure out is whether or not you have to buy additional chips via in-app purchase if you happen to run out.

I couldn’t find a way to earn additional chips by watching ads, but hopefully this isn’t the case.

Overall, Texas Jack Poker is a great card game that’s definitely worth a try if you enjoy poker and blackjack. It’s easy to get the hang of it and is a great option for anyone who would rather play solo.

Arcade games are both fun and addicting to play, especially when you’re looking for a way to keep busy. Unlike complex RPGs and other fantasy games, you can play arcade games for minutes or hours at a time.

Swift Plane is a creative and fun new endless runner that really puts your reflexes to the test.

It’s an endless arcade game that’s like Doodle Jump and others, but it has much more variety.

Concept and Gameplay:

Swift Plane, by Mustplay Games Private Limited, is a pretty simple game that’s easy to play once you get the basics figured out.

I like the fact that the tutorial shows you different maneuvers. You can control your airplane by swiping up, down, left, or right to avoid obstacles.

Swift Plane is that it’s a bit frustrating to play at first because obstacles can be difficult to judge. The game throws a few twists in by employing obstacles that move, requiring you to be on your toes.

Playing Swift Plane often means you’ll be able to unlock the various achievements that are built into the game. You’re rewarded with gems if you complete tasks, making it much easier to unlock new airplanes and maps.

When it comes to graphics and gameplay, Swift Plane is actually pretty nice to look at. I like the use of unique “low poly art” design.
