Whether you make a daily commute via public transportation or you’re a sporadic traveler, you’re probably aware of how easy it is to drift off to sleep on a long journey.

While catching a bit of shuteye isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it can lead to added frustration due to missing your stop.

iSlept – Location Alarm is an iPhone app that will help users not miss their stop if they happen to doze off.

Developed by Pascal Hadidane, iSlept has plenty of features to help commuters nap responsibly.

Concept and Functionality:

iSlept – Location Alarm is a location-based app that ultimately remains aware of where users are going and provides audio notifications when they’re close to their destination.

We originally reviewed iSlept – Location Alarm back in October of 2014, and there have been many great improvements to the app since then.

To use iSlept – Location Alarm, simply open the app and type your destination into the search bar at the top of the screen. You can choose a city, point of interest, or even an address. Run the search and tap on the destination of your choice, and iSlept – Location Alarm will drop a pin at that location.

When it comes to usability, iSlept – Location Alarm is pretty easy to figure out. If you’re having trouble finding your way around, though, there’s a helpful tutorial in the Config menu.

There are a couple of things I want to stress about iSlept – Location Alarm, though, which is the fact that the app is likely to drain your battery due to constant GPS usage.

This is definitely something to keep in mind and not an issue if you plan for it and have an alternative power source handy.

Also, keep in mind that iSlept – Location Alarm is not meant to be a GPS app that provides turn-by-turn directions or routes you to your destination.

Features:

iSlept – Location Alarm includes many great features for commuters, such as the ability to save up to 20 different destinations. This makes quick work of programming iSlept – Location Alarm, especially if you travel the same route(s) frequently.

Also, iSlept – Location Alarm gives users plenty of control over POI options via the Config menu.

You can even choose to have the app display weather conditions, which is definitely useful. Lastly, the Config menu lets you fine tune the audio notification volume.

Of course the location you choose can be anything. So, for example, if you want a reminder to pick up flowers or groceries when you pass your favorite shop, put that address in.

In face, we’d love to see this aspect of the app expanded so you could search for “hardware stores” and get a notification when you’re near any, not just the one you know about.

Value:

iSlept – Location Alarm is available to download from the App Store for $2.99 and is designed for iPhone. The price might seem a bit steep, but it’s probably less than the cost of a ticket back to your stop if you happen to miss it because you fell asleep.

If you don’t want to shell out cash without trying the app first, there’s a free version of iSlept – Location Alarm that has limited features but functions the same.

Overall, iSlept – Location Alarm is a great app that accomplishes what it set out to do, which is to give users peace of mind while traveling on public transportation.

iSlept is definitely a tired commuter’s best friend. If you’ve had a long day, don’t make it worse by missing your stop.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Eggo To Go is a fun and casual iPhone game that’ll keep players entertained and challenged.

Developed by Fevolution Innovation inc., Eggo To Go is a vertical endless game and while somewhat similar to Doodle Jump, it has plenty of unique elements.

Concept and Gameplay:

Eggo To Go is definitely one of those games that’s simple to figure out, but difficult to master.

When you open the game for the first time, you’re greeted with an adorable animated sequence that gives you a bit of a background story.

Ultimately your goal is to guide Eggo and Dudu through outer space or the forest and collect energy and eggs to get the highest score possible. To do this, Eggo To Go features basic controls.

Simply tilt your iPhone left or right to move the characters from side to side. Tap and slide up to stretch them out, and tap and slide down to make them accelerate. Lastly, double tap the screen to make Eggo and Dudu spin to attack enemies.

The tricky part is navigating your way around obstacles and bad guys. Elemental stars come in a variety of colors, and you can only collect colors that match your container.

Collecting the correct color replenishes energy, while collecting wrong colors drains it. The game ends if you collide with an enemy or obstacle, or if you run out of energy.

Features:

Eggo To Go not only features fun and challenging gameplay, but there are a few extras that make the game even better.

For example, players can purchase special outfits for Eggo and Dudu once they’ve acquired enough Eggo Coins. This can be achieved through gameplay or by purchasing coins via in-app purchase.

Also, Eggo To Go features Game Center integration and online leaderboards, which is perfect for competitive players.

Players also have the option of sharing their final score on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Value:

Eggo To Go is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone.

As mentioned above, players have the option of purchasing Eggo Coin packs. Eggo Coin pack rices range from $0.99 for 1,000 coins up to $6.99 for 10,000 coins. The special flight suits start at 5,000 coins, and it looks like they’re purely cosmetic.

However, Eggo To Go doesn’t require users to pay extras to disable ads or unlock additional content, so it’s still a great value.

Overall, this is a fantastic free iPhone game that is casual, yet challenging. It’s a great way to kill time while having fun.

eggo_to_go.jpgEggo To Go requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Demolition Dodge
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

If you’re a dedicated reader, you’re likely aware of the fact that we adore arcade games. Anything that has us smashing, trashing and running about for points is right up our alley.

If we can earn additional items or milestones along the way, then you might as well go ahead and cancel our afternoon.

With that in mind, we’re pleased to be bringing you a full review of Demolition Dodge by Adrian Flux today.

Demolition Dodge is a fun venture into destruction, and if you’ve got an hour or so to spare, you’ll have a blast satisfying that itch to wreck a hot muscle car.

For our full review, you need only slide down below the break!

Concept and Gameplay

The idea behind Demolition Dodge is so simple, it’s even right there in the name.

Yes, you’ll spend every second inside the app wheeling around a demolition derby track, smacking into opponents, collection power-ups, and generally living up your most destructive tendencies.

It’s tons of fun, and if you’re already a fan of similar console-based games, you’ll absolutely love Demolition Dodge.

Demolition Dodge iPhone Game

The app does a lot to flesh things out from there, though. Along the way the player can grab additional powers and items that provide necessary relief in the action.

These items include rockets, ice cubes, repairs, and so much more. Each of which adds something new to the mix, though we probably wouldn’t call them “strategic.”

Honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

On top of all that, your hard-earned stars give you the power to unlock newer, better vehicles. This adds a lot of drive to the game, and though you might not mean to at first, we promise you’ll find yourself coming back.

Design and Graphics

Demolition Dodge is a class act, and it shows in the quality of its graphics and its overall design.

Nothing here is sloppy, except the action itself—and that of course, is by design.

The graphics are tight, the controls are blissfully simple, and even the cars themselves are well thought-out.

This is clearly the work of developers hell-bent on producing the most hell-raising iPhone app imaginable. The end result is charming, fun to look at, and even more fun to play.

Overall Value

It’s also quite hard to beat the value that Demolition Dodge represents. It’s chock-full of fantastic gameplay, and considering it costs nothing to download, there’s no real downside here.

However, we do have one small complaint—the app is quite short. It didn’t take us long to hack our way through all the vehicles, and we were admittedly left wanting a little more.

Still, Demolition Dodge is easily one of the funnest apps we’ve tried recently. And considering that sans prix price tag, there’s no reason not to try it out today!

Grab Prot-On For Secure and Controlled File Sharing

Prot-On
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Prot-On is a very well designed app giving you an easy way to share files quickly and securely.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, Prot-On, an app by Proteccion On-Line, allows users to stay in control of the files they share even after they share them.

Features:

Prot-On is designed to allow users to stay in control of the files they share, even after they’ve already shared them.

To do this, the app adds an encryption to each file shared or stored through it. This encryption allows you to retract photos (or any other files) from anyone after you’ve already shared them.

In other words, if you send something to someone but later feel that you need to restrict their access to that file, Prot-On will allow you to change the permissions you’ve granted to that user. Very cool.

Of course, sharing files isn’t the only point of the app; users can encrypt files for the purpose of simply creating more secure documents for themselves if they wish to do that as well.

Setting up an account on Prot-On is pleasantly easy to do, and figuring out how to use the different features of the app was also very straight forward.

Appearance and Layout:

The appearance and layout of Prot-On are definitely strong points of the app.

Prot-On is a very straight forward app, and the streamlined, minimalistic design of the app reflected this very well. Getting where I wanted in the app was also easy to do, even for a first time user.

Anyone who is familiar with any of the more mainstream file-sharing services will have no problem using Prot-On.

While the design seemed to work best on the larger screen of an iPad, the fonts are still definitely readable and workable on smaller screens as well.

Overall, Prot-On’s layout is great proof that a strong design turns a “good concept” into a great app.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Prot-On is a free app for private use.

While some iOS users might prefer the more popular sharing services like Dropbox and Google Drive, Prot-On is definitely an excellent option for users wanting to have more control over files.

The encryption service might seem unnecessary for some, but it is certainly a good thing to consider for anyone who has ever shared a file that they wish that they could retract at a later time.

Overall, Prot-On is a unique app that delivers what it promises and will definitely please its target audience.

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

iFile Browser by Beleela is an all-in-one file management app that not only simplifies organizing all of your files into one convenient location but also provides a range of functions that you won’t want to be without.

Features:

Just as its name indicates, iFile Browser makes it easier than ever before to organize any and all files that you might have stored on your iOS devices.

Files stored on the cloud can also be imported to the app, allowing for even more ease in organization. However, iFile Browser provides users with more than just a simple all-in-one file management tool. Instead, this app is also designed to be optimal for highlighting and annotating texts, as well as doing basic edits to photo files as well.

Other features of the app also include the ability to print wirelessly (via a Bluetooth connection) and to compress or decompress files as needed.

First-time users are treated to a free 30-day trial, and I found that using the promoted features on the app really was just as simple as promised.

Students and business users alike will probably find the all-inclusiveness of iFile Browser to be impressive, particularly the ease in annotating and organizing files.

Appearance and Layout:

iFile Browser iPhone  App Review

The design of iFile Browser is absolutely ideal for an app of its type.

Even though this app is a powerful tool offering an impressive range of functions, the app never feels too cluttered or crowded at any time.

Instead, a sleek, relatively minimalistic layout keeps screens feeling clean and organized within the app.

Additionally, navigating through iFile Browser is wonderfully simple and fairly intuitive, and a short series of introductory slides provides new users with helpful information as well.

Value:

As mentioned previously, iFile Browser is currently available for a free 30-day trial through the iTunes Store.

However, it appears that in-app purchases must be made in order to continue to use its various features. For instance, users can choose between purchasing a one-year subscription for a fee of about $30 or purchasing individual features of the app for around $1-$6, depending on the feature.

This relatively pricey subscription fee not only put iFile Browser towards the higher priced end of iOS apps, but the fact that the subscription would have to be renewed every year in order to enjoy continued use of the app would definitely frustrate some potential users.

Overall, while iFile Browser is a good, all-in-one app, you’ll have to decide it provides you with enough functionality to warrant the price.

Boing Hop Boing Is an Addicting and Enjoyable iOS Game

Boing Hop Boing
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

 

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

One of my favorite things about reviewing iPhone and iPad games is that I get to see brand-new releases that break new ground and are fun to play.

Drippy Cat Software Limited has released a new universal title that is just that.

Boing Hop Boing is similar to Doodle Jump but takes it to the next level offering an unusual mechanic, more scenery and engaging variety.

Concept and Gameplay:

Boing Hop Boing is a platform game at heart, but there are a few twists that make the game unlike anything I’ve seen in the past.

In order to play, you have to tilt your device to either the left of the right to move your bouncing character around the screen. The more you tilt the faster it goes, much like Doodle Jump, and get an extra hop from tapping the yellow bounce button.

Your goal is to complete levels by navigating your way through the map and reaching the end.

Along the way, Boing Hop Boing throws you a few curveballs in the form of obstacles and enemies such as pesky animals and insects.

There are even moving platforms you have to jump onto, as well as moving obstacles you have to avoid. Boing Hop Boing definitely isn’t an easy game to play, but it doesn’t take long to get used to the controls, either.

Boing Hop Boing iPhone Game

Also, your character is equipped with a peashooter, that you fire with the green button, to help you defeat critters that might be in his way, as well as an ability that puts a little extra bounce in his step.

This is great for reaching higher plateaus or jumping over obstacles. Be careful not to hit anything while navigating your way through levels, though, because you only have five lives per level. Occasionally you’ll pick up an extra life while playing, but this isn’t always the case.

Features:

Boing Hop Boing includes four different themes and gameplay modes for players to enjoy. From normal/casual levels to avoiding rising water and trying to complete a speed challenge,

I really like the fact that the game offers quite a bit of variety. This is pretty much the only way to keep players from becoming bored with Boing Hop Boing.

Another great feature of Boing Hop Boing is character customization. Players can customize the color of their character’s clothes and skin on the main screen of the game.

To do this, tap on the colored leaves that surround the character. You can tell which leaf color correlates to a piece of clothing by looking at the stem and seeing where it points.

Value:

Boing Hop Boing is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 with no ads, no IAPs and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. According to the game’s App Store page, this is a special introductory price that will end once the new level pack is added.

Therefore, I definitely recommend checking out Boing Hop Boing as quickly as possible if you think it’s a game that you’re interested in.

Personally I think it’s a wonderful game that offers a lot to players, especially when it comes to gameplay environment, background music and sound effects, and overall enjoyment.
