 Dead Giveaway: Trivia That Won’t Bore You to Death (We Promise)

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

We’ve mentioned it here on the blog many times, but our love for trivia games absolutely knows no bounds. We cannot get enough general knowledge quizzing, and if there’s an application that can deliver that scratch for our permanent itch, we’re hot to review it.

Dead Giveaway, from AppStreet Games Ltd. is a brilliant little puzzler that not only comes with a truly engaging premise, but it brings serious trivia punch to boot.

If that’s got you interested, and you feel like running from some virtual zombies today, you’ll find our full review of the title below.

Dead Giveaway is not your average trivia game. For starters, it offers us a lot more in terms of premise than you’d typically expect. In this app, you’re playing for the rights to your grey matter on a zombie gameshow.

The undead task masters will ask you questions, and you’ll have to answer correctly to save your life. Theoretically, missing enough questions would make you the main course. However, there’s no real pressure here—mostly, it just makes for a fun experience.

With that in mind, you’ll be answering a lot of pop-culture oriented questions. And it’s wicked fun. The zombies will give you a question in the form of three clues, and then you’ll have to type  in the correct answer. Missing it will cost you coin payout, with each incorrect response docking a coin. Answer it correctly and win big!

You’ll use the coins you gather to unlock additional clues and skips. In our experience, it’s a simple task to gain a lot of money. This means Dead Giveaway is a lot more on the fun side of trivia, and a lot less on the challenging side.

Usually when a game has this quirky of a premise, the design quality seems to suffer. However, Dead Giveaway is right on the money for what we’d want.

The graphics are cartoony and inviting, while the trivia questions are solidly difficult. Everything about the experience has been cleverly designed to suck you in and keep you playing—and we can’t get enough, it seems.

We do wish the questions were a little harder, and though the difficultly increases with each level passed, it feels a bit slow. Then again, we’re absolute trivia hounds, and perhaps Dead Giveaway is a good fit for the wider public.

Dead Giveaway is also completely free in the App Store. You can even banish advertisements from the game for free. To unlock additional coins, however, a small in-app purchase is required. In our experience, this was not necessary to enjoy the game.

All in all, Dead Giveaway is a brilliantly quirky, hilariously entertaining, and endlessly rewarding entry into the trivia genre. We’ve greatly enjoyed our time with it, and we will likely continue to do so in the future. Spot-on, lads, and a job well done

Who couldn’t use a little bit more cash in their pocket? In the Capitalist juggernaut, we’re left keeping up with inflation and rising food prices. We all know we’re not going to save money by sacrificing our smartphones, so why not put the little gadgets to use?

That’s where Appdown.Me comes into play. This website in an interesting mix of app discovery and cash incentives that allows you to earn dollars by downloading apps and referring friends.

If you’re looking for an easy buck and have plenty of time on your hands, this app-esque website might just be worth a spin.

Sign up is easy enough. Either login with Facebook or simply confirm via email address. Then, you’ll start perusing through all the apps you can download via the website, which lists them from highest to lowest value.

Your first download will land you an easy 300 points, or the equivalent of about one US dollar. You’ll be prompted to download the app and remain active for at least a few minutes before closing and deleting.

In reality, don’t expect to make significant coin from the app. It’s more about some pocket money.

Picture this scenario: you’re in a room in your house. You’re working within this website, downloading apps for anywhere from 5 cents to a full dollar (if we’re being generous).

The lights are on, so is your Wi-Fi, oh yeah, and you’re paying rent. If this was your only gig you would have to work impossibly fast to actually make more than you’re spending on the utilities to participate in the first place.

If each app download was worth a dollar, we might see this as valuable, but eventually the downloads become worth about $0.05 – $0.30 per pop, and that’s pennies. Literally.

On the upside, you can refer your friends to make some cash off of their downloads (residually) and also get bonus points for participating in additional challenges.

You’ll find yourself capped at about $50 per month from the highest possible use of this app, or in New York, about the value of two large pizzas and a coke.

 PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywhere

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

It is never easy to give a speech to a large group of people. It’s even harder to give a televised—or otherwise broadcasted—performance. If you’re not a professional with nerves of steel, you’re likely looking for every tool imaginable to get you through your next engagement. If that’s the case, let us help you out a little by introducing PromptSmart, from the company, PromptSmart.

PromptSmart is an ingenious app for any would-be public speaker. The application offers a minimalist way to read what you’ve prepared, deliver it all smoothly, and without any other device beside your iPhone or iPad. It’s a little pricy, but easily worth the money invested.

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

Concept and Functionality star PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywherestar PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywherestar PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywherestar PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywherestar PromptSmart: Providing Speech Giving Confidence Everywhere

Primarily, PromptSmart is designed to give you maximum confidence and speaking ability when you most need it—without using any other devices than the one currently in your pocket. How does it do this? Through a menagerie of cutting-edge features, all of which worked surprisingly well on our iPhone.

Firstly, PromptSmart provides an easy way to present your speeches in a concise, teleprompter-esque fashion. Simply upload your documents in a variety of easy formats, and the app will do the rest. It puts all that messy verbiage over a flat background with a text color of your choice. It looks exactly like a classic prompter, only it’s a perfect fit for your iOS device.

Secondly, PromptSmart comes with something called VoiceTrack, which we haven’t seen anywhere else in the iTunes App Store. This technology allows you to start reading while PromptSmart follows along. It will actually listen to your voice, and adjust the displayed text to match.

This is useful for a number of reasons, but primarily it keeps you from having to worry about page flips or scrolling. Just start reading your own words, and the rest takes care of itself! To us, that’s easily worth the price of admission, especially for the frequent speaker.

PromptSmart also happens to look pretty fantastic on the iPhone and iPad alike. It features a pseudo-minimalist interface with some flat influence that we like a lot. Not only that, but it comes with two unique interface modes.

The first is a standard document rendering, as we talked about before. Load a speech into the application and you’re done. The second allows you to add shorter notecards for presentations in the board room or elsewhere.

We like all of this, and our only real complaint is that it’s not quite as seamlessly animated as other apps in the App Store. We’d like to see some soft parallax, or even some gliding between interface elements.

PromptSmart is also on the pricier end of the stick, costing a whopping $9.99 in the App Store. However, that’s a pretty small price to pay for those that speak often, and would find a lot of value in just a presentation app.

This is a sharp looking utility with far-reaching potential. And though the bill is higher than most, it’s easily worth the cost of admission. PromptSmart earns a solid rating from us, as well as a tip of the hat.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Lumberjack magician by ChewingApps Ltd. is an adorable iOS game that features a wizard with tree chopping spells.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this game aims to keep its players yelling “Timber!!!”

Features: star Test Your Fast Thinking Skills with Lumberjack magicianstar Test Your Fast Thinking Skills with Lumberjack magicianstar Test Your Fast Thinking Skills with Lumberjack magicianstar Test Your Fast Thinking Skills with Lumberjack magicianstar Test Your Fast Thinking Skills with Lumberjack magician

Lumberjack magician is a simple and straightforward game that is both charming and addicting.

The game has a quick and easy learning curve, yet the fairly addictive gameplay will keep you playing repeatedly. Specifically speaking, Lumberjack magician incorporates a “wizardry” way of chopping down trees; the object of the game is to chop down a tree with an unmeasurable height, all while avoiding the branches.

Overall, it’s a very simple concept that still proves addictively challenging. Shortly after learning the concepts of the game, I found myself repeatedly trying to get a higher score. The more “chops” you make on the tree, the higher your score.

Not only is there motivation to get a high score, but there are goals set in place to unlock additional “8-bit” characters. In total, there are 3 characters to choose from that are intentionally similar to characters of Harry Potter. In fact, on the first screen of the game it says “Hogwarts Edition.”

Additionally, Lumberjack magician offers four different levels/ environments that add variety to the game.

Lumberjack magician is stylized like a home console game from the early 90s. Specifically, the character models within the game look excellent and appealing. For some players, this old-school style will provide a wonderful nostalgia of their younger days.

The overall theme of Lumberjack magician has many comparable elements to the universe of the Harry Potter series, and fans of the popular book series will probably be attracted to the app because of these similarities.

However, a rather frustrating aspect of Lumberjack magician is the number of pop-up ads that appear on screen. Since the game is fast-paced and involves tapping the screen quickly, it’s easy to click an ad by accident. This issue severely detracts from the appeal of the game and makes it less enjoyable.

Like many iOS apps, Lumberjack magician is free to download, but it has an option within the app to remove the ads with a one-time purchase of $0.99. Since the ads are quite a nuisance in the game, some people may find that small fee worth it.

Look at the free download like a demo, if you like it, go ahead, spring for the buck to make the game that much more enjoyable.

Overall, if you’re looking for a quick and easy game to kill time with, Lumberjack magician may be a great option.

Top Ten New Free iOS Games – These Games Rock!

toptengamesicons 300x120 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!


Top Ten New Free iOS Games by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

One part of our latest “Top Ten” list is for all our loyal readers who love to play games on the world’s greatest gaming platform, the iPhone. Why is it so great? Well, for one thing you ALWAYS have it with you. That counts for a lot and makes up for any nit picky shortcomings it may have relative to bona fide game consoles. Just try commuting to work with your Xbox.

The other part is for all you cheapskates out there. C’mon, you know who you are…all of us! Let’s face it, who doesn’t like a freebie, especially one that can occupy your idle minutes so productively. Get work done? Are you kidding me? Not where there are baddies to zap, words to come up with, or any number of moment to moment challenges that keep us on our collective toes.

Plus, a free game, while often times not truly free due to IAPs or having to buy the “full version”, at least gives you a taste so you can decide if it’s something you want to spend more time with. You know, kind of like a first date in the park.

So here goes, our recommendation for a bunch of terrific games that have been released or updated in the past couple of months.

skyforceicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Sky Force 2014 – (updated Sept 11, 2014) –  It’s a side scroller that you won’t want to put down. It’s not lost on us the amount of pure development and design work that has gone into the latest release of this game. With weekly tournaments, a nice social gaming aspect, the stunning 3D graphics, and a ton of achievements to garner, there’s a lot to love.

This game is one of the most immersive we’ve had the pleasure of playing and just for the record, don’t blame us if you miss your stop.

smashbanditsicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Smash Bandits Racing – This is flat out an exhilarating racing game. It has tons of powerups, fantastic graphics, quite a few unique features, and with a goal of creating as much carnage as possible, it really cranks up the fun. From the helicopter to smashing cop cars to actual car damage, it’s quite the ride.

We also applaud how the developers have made the game easier to play with the one finger control. All in all this is one free game not to miss.

kuninicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Kunin – Do you like action/arcade games? If you want to take this one on you’d better be well rested and focused! It will take all you powers of speed, accuracy and timing but if you bring your A game it will pay off. You are a Ninja in training and have a number of deadly items coming at you; daggers, throwing stars, battle axes and sickles.

We love the slick cartoon-like graphics, mystical soundtrack and fast pace. You have to face the right direction and slash the incoming projectiles to make it to Ninja Master but the good news is that even if you don’t you’ll have lots of slashing fun trying to get there.

punchquesticon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Punch Quest – Shades of Super Mario. Go back in time with a time machine to play this one, well, not really but it does make you feel like you’re back in the ‘90s playing with a vintage computer game. Use your thumbs to throw uppercuts or jabs as you move along from left to right knocking out the baddies.

Break the egg open and pimp your ride on a baby dinosaur. Just keep moving and punching, with a block here and there, and you’ll have a ball.

7littlewordsicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!7 Little Words – If fast twitching and screaming action is not your game, or just not what you want at the moment, take a break with this challenging thinking game. It’s easy to just pick up and play and will get your gray matter humming. You’re given seven words to guess from 20 blocks that each have two or three letters.

Once you use a block it goes away leaving just the unused ones for you to pick from. More challenging than it sounds and well worth a look. We’d like to see more free content but hey, bills have to be paid.

symbollinksicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Symbol Link – This game from the author of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov, is a problem solving type of game and while it starts off easy but as the number of squares increases it can get quite difficult. Are you up for it? You have to connect like symbols in such a way that you find the pairs with the shortest path first.

There is a lot of free content and while removing ads is $1.99, ads are also removed with any IAP.

 

3dchessicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!3D Chess Game – If you’re a chess fanatic, or just like to capture a pawn every now and then, this is a very attractive and feature packed version of the classic game. Right off the bat you see a 3D chess board and can move it around with your finger to suit the view you prefer or spin it to see your side from the other side.

Of course you have all the usual adjustments, the level you want to play at, human or computer opponent, timed play or not, etc. But you can also pick the color of the opposing pieces, which while not strictly a game option, is pretty cool.

 

twistedicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Twisted Lands: Insomniac Collector’s Edition HD – Twisted Lands is a terrifically successful gaming franchise from Big Fish Games. There are five different versions and they are all excellent. They are interactive mystery role playing games combined with hidden objects games, and they look stunning on the iPad’s big screen. So, if you like solving mysteries, these are not to be missed. These games take the hidden object genre to new levels.

One of the best aspects of this series, the videos and very high quality detailed graphics, make for an engaging experience but all that content does comes with a cost, the size of the download is about 700MB.

crossroadicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Crossroad – Control Traffic At Rush Hour – Avoid Car Crashes – If you’ve ever driven on a busy city street this is a game that you will take to like a fish to water. You are the overseeing traffic controller who can, with just a flick of your omnipotent finger, make cars, trucks and motorcycles either zoom across the intersection using a quick swipe or stop for another vehicle to pass by tapping on it.

Your goal, as you might expect, is to get as many vehicles safely across as possible.

It’s a quick game to pick up and play and loads of fun, even when things start to get crowded and the horns start blaring.

 

zenpinballicon 150x150 Top Ten New Free iOS Games   These Games Rock!Zen Pinball – Are you a Pinball Wizard? Would you like to become one? This game features superb graphics and uses an excellent physics engine to bring all the real action of a physical pinball game to your iOS device.

It’s amazing how realistic it plays – every time you hit the flipper or gently hold the ball on it for a finesse move, the ball responds just like you’d expect. You can quickly start playing a solo game to kill some time while waiting for your dentist or go into Hot Seat mode to play with your buddy.

The global leader boards will let you know how you stack up against all the other wizards out there.

 Take Great Pics via Remote Control with Camera Plus

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

Do you need yet another camera app for your iPhone or iPad? Well, maybe you do.

Camera Plus, from Global Delight Technologies Pvt. Ltd, is a very compelling and innovative camera app that just might be your go-to app from now on.

It has some very cool features and, with AirSnap, you can easily include yourself or take otherwise impossible shots.

Features

This app has quite a number of very useful features including using a slider to adjust the brightness of a scene, using a slider to dynamically adjust the focus while shooting a video, a bar that can tell you if the camera is straight or tilted, filter effects and much more.

One of the real innovative features though, is definitely AirSnap. When we say “include yourself” you might think we’re talking about selfies. Guess again. This app includes the ability to link a second device to the primary one that acts as the camera, and lets the second one act as your remote control.

To use AirSnap, you first set up your “camera”, which is the iPhone or iPad running iOS 8 that will take the photo or video. Then you link a second device, also an iOS 8 device, using bluetooth or wifi, and voila! You can see on the remote control device what the camera is seeing.  You can snap the photo or record video, adjust brightness, flash, and more from the remote.

We can imagine this enabling some very creative shots. You can position the ‘camera’ device in a hard to shoot location (did someone say drone?) and, when you see the shot you want, you use the remote to shoot it.

Other features include a private folder to lock up personal photos and videos, a ‘soft’ flash for the iPad that is used to make the photo look like a flash was used, photo captions, Pix’d – an enhancement feature that improves the photo while maintaining the original and lets you instantly flip betweent the Pix’d photo and the original with just the touch of your finger, and many more.

Beyond all the camera functionality it’s worth noting that this app supports 11 languages.

Functionality and Ease of Use

With all the excellent features of this app it’s easy to get overwhelmed by them. The good news is that the developers have really done their homework to make using all the great features as easy as possible. When you open the app the icons are mostly self-explanatory and little tips are displayed to alert you to others, such as how to easily set the focus on the exact item you want.

The challenge of building a complex app with lots of features is also make the app easy to use.

The UI of this app is a great example keeping it simple so you can quickly take great shots. Some complex apps overwhelm you with all the options right in your face and others confuse you by making them impossible to find.

This app strikes a good balance so with a minimum of overlaid icons you can access all the powerful features.

Overall Value

A broad range of features and a very well designed UI make the latest version of this app, a real stand-out in a crowded field.

When you think about all the capability this app includes there is no doubt that the $1.99 download fee is well worth it.
