It’s really cool about social media is that it goes far beyond connecting with people you know. There are social networking apps for every kind of interest you can think of, from cars to video games.

EatOpine is an awesome app that allows you to discover new restaurants in your area in a cool and innovative way. If you love food you’ll love this app!

Concept and Functionality:

If you’ve ever used your iPhone to search for a place to eat, you’ve undoubtedly heard of apps like Yelp. EatOpine, by EatOpine LLC, goes beyond ratings and reviews by encouraging users to submit photos of their meals.

Not only is this a great opportunity for you to show off your awesome sushi spread, but it’s a chance for fellow foodies to discover a new restaurant to check out.

EatOpine is a social network, which means that you have to create an account or connect the app to Facebook in order to use it. As you share your food finds, your social network of foodie friends will continue to grow.

As someone who is always looking for new place to eat, I know I would use EatOpine on a regular basis.

The only drawback is that the app is still in its infancy, which means that you may not have a lot of users in your area at first.

Don’t let that stop you from giving the app a try; just be sure to tell your friends about.

Features:

One of the things I really like about EatOpine is that it serves multiple purposes.

It’s a great platform for people to share gorgeous plates with each other.

It also functions as a way for people to spread the word about fantastic restaurants in the area that deserve to be recognized.

Lastly, this might even be an app that can solve the dreaded question of where you’re going to eat tonight.

Value:

EatOpine is available to download from the App Store for free. I couldn’t find any in-app purchases or ads, which means that users will have a clean and unintrusive experience.

Overall, I definitely think EatOpine will gain traction among foodies. It has tons of potential, and I really hope the app takes off.

EatOpine requires iOS 9.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Lively Is a Great Way to Video Chat with Like-Minded People

Lively – Meet New People
Price: Free

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Connecting with people is incredibly easy thanks to apps. It wasn’t too long ago when you’d have to actually go places to meet new people; now you can hang out and chat with like-minded individuals who share your interests.

Lively is a well-designed and easy-to-use app that makes chatting with and meeting new people fun and exciting.

Unlike traditional apps where you have to rely on text, Lively uses video chatting so you can talk to each other face to face.

Concept and Functionality:

Signing up for Lively, a free app by Zoosk, Inc., is incredibly easy – all you need is to connect the app to Facebook. From there, you can choose your interest categories such as sports, tv shows, politics, and so much more.

As far as the actual chatting experience, I like the fact that Lively covers new ground by moving users away from texting each other.

It seems like a strange concept at first, but there’s a handy app feature that I’ll talk about in a bit which makes everything much, much more comfortable.

One of the things I really like about Lively is that it’s easy to get adjusted to the app. You’re not grilled with personality questions so you can be matched with the “perfect” chat partner; just pick a topic you feel like talking about at that particular moment and wait to be connected with someone who wants to discuss the same thing.

Features:

Lively – Meet New People iPhone App

As I mentioned above, Lively has a really neat feature that even the shyest of chatters will appreciate – the blur. This feature automatically blurs each users screen when a video chat is started.

As you chat with your partner, the blur gradually fades. You always have the option to keep the blur enabled for privacy purposes, but this is a really cool way to let you get comfortable with chatting.

If you happen to chat with someone and you really enjoy their company, you can add them to your friend list.

Lively is an especially great app for college students because you have the option of choosing your campus (if it’s listed) when you first sign up.

Value:

Lively is available to download for free from the App Store. There are no ads or in-app purchases, which makes this a completely free app to use and enjoy. No subscription fees, no paid extras, and no nonsense.

Overall, I highly recommend Lively if you’re looking to video chat with new people and talk about things you have in common.

It’s a great app that definitely has privacy in mind, and I definitely believe it’s destined to be a top social networking app!

Lively – Meet New People requires iOS 9.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka Let’s You Play With a Friend or Your iPhone

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka
Price: $2.99
Rating:
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by M. Chau

Tic Tac Toe is an extremely popular game the world over and is probably one of the first games you learned to play. Kids to adults enjoy the challenge and fun of this game.

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka by Selassie Akakpo is a digital version of the classic time-passing game, “tic tac toe” and it’s a very cool way to play it on your iPhone.

Available for $2.99 through the iTunes Store, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka – XOX Noughts And Crosses Game With Intelligent And Difficult AI (the full name) offers players the ability to sharpen their gaming skills without needing a physical second opponent.

Features:

Despite its long name, this app’s features can really be summed up in the first three words of its title–tic, tac, toe.

Simply put, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka keeps the general concept of the classic, popular children’s game but adds in a few modern spins.

Players in this version get to see bamboo “H’s” and “X’s” instead of the traditional “X & O” pattern. Keeping with the bamboo theme, playing as a cute panda is also an option in the two-player game.

For players who don’t have that extra friend to play against, Tiki Taka offers AI of three different levels to challenge yourself against. For anyone who has ever played pen and paper “tic, tac, toe,” picking up this app version of the game will be no problem at all.

Even though the app offers three different levels of AI to battle against, experienced players should still be able to beat the AI with relative ease. Overall, while the features of this app are charming, they don’t seem to offer that much more than a traditional version of the game.

Appearance and Layout:

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka iPhone Game

The design of this game is top-notch and its appearance and layout are easily its strongest attributes.

Bamboo-crafted playing pieces take their places on the gaming board as you work your way to victory as the “champion.”

Panda versus Bamboo makes for a charming two-player option offered within the app as well.

Additionally, Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka’s layout is simple enough that even a small child could easily grasp both the navigation throughout the app and the rules of the game very easily.

Because of its fun graphics, easy navigation, and simple gaming concept, this app is definitely very child-friendly.

Value:

At almost $3 per game download, the price on Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka definitely seems steep. Arguably one of the greatest appeals to traditional tic tac toe is the ease and affordability with which the game can be enjoyed; all that’s required usually are pen, paper, and a opponent.

While some players might find the option to enjoy playing against an AI ‘bot worth this app’s price tag, the majority will probably pass up Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka for cheaper gaming options.

The graphics and extra “twists” that this digital version are certainly creative and fun but whether it offers enough to justify the app’s price is for you to decide.

Tic Tac Toe Tiki Taka iPhone app requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Jail Football Takes Soccer to Another (Fun) Level

Jail Football – Prison Soccer Maniacs
Price: Free
Rating:
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Soccer can be a really fun sport, especially when you’re playing against people around the world from the comfort of your iPhone.

Jail Football is an exciting and competitive game that puts a unique spin on this classic game by pitting convicts against correction officers.

Concept and Gameplay:

While nothing beats going outside and kicking a ball around, Jail Football, developed by Zaur Khadikov, does a decent job of recreating soccer in a less-than-desirable environment.

This isn’t your typical version of soccer where yellow and red cards are acceptable; this is an all out contact sport where violence is actually encouraged, and how fun is that?

Gameplay is well designed and straightforward in Jail Football, which makes the game incredibly fun to play. All you have to do is tap the player you want to control, then drag your finger back to aim the ball. If you aim at an opponent, you’ll run up to them and physically attack them.

Jail Football gives you quite a few options for gameplay, which is perfect for players who want to experience the game in various ways. For example, you’re able to hone your skills against the computer, or try your luck battling other players around the world.

You can even directly challenge friends to a match.

Features:

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

One of the things I really like about Jail Football is that it’s a very versatile game.

Along with various fun game modes to try, you can strive to be the best player by climbing the leaderboards.

The game seems to have quite a popular following already, which means you’ll have to work in order to achieve decent rankings.

You can also customize your avatar and name to your liking, which does add a nice personal touch to Jail Football.

Value:

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

When it comes to fun games to play, Jail Football is definitely up there on the list. It has a ton of versatility and gameplay modes, which means it’ll appeal to all kinds of players.

Jail Football – Prison Soccer Maniacs requires iOS 9.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPad.

Miniwalla the Forest Story Is an Amazing Ebook for Children

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

There are plenty of children’s books available on the App Store, and the best part is that it seems like there’s a book to teach kids on almost every subject.

Miniwalla is an incredible free book for iOS that takes kids on an animal-filled adventure while teaching them important life lessons along the way.

Concept and Functionality:

Miniwalla, developed by Siu lui shirley Choi, is an adorable story about a boy named Henry and his parent’s wildlife refuge on the island of Java.

Like most children his age, Henry goes on adventures and tends to get into a little bit of trouble. Luckily his animal friends are there to help them and teach important life lessons like responsibility and teamwork.

Unlike most books that are available on the App Store, Miniwalla is fairly hands-off. What this means is that you won’t be manually turning pages; the book practically reads itself.

This is a nice change from books that are highly interactive because it allows kids and parents to sit back and experience the story of Henry and his friends.

What really struck me the most about Miniwalla is the amount of detail that has gone into illustrations, music, and storyline. Not only is this virtual book fun to look at, but the story is actually incredibly intriguing and fun to read.

Features:

Miniwalla iPhone App

Miniwalla iPhone Book

Perhaps the best thing about Miniwalla is that it includes a total of six different chapters for kids to read. Originally I figured that additional chapters would be unlocked via in-app purchase, but I was wrong; every chapter is completely free.

If you’re a parent who is trying to teach a child about the importance of music, you’ll be happy to know that Miniwalla was created by a professional composer. A fantastic score and original songs makes this app soar above others like it.

Value:

Miniwalla is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases or ads.

Without a doubt, Miniwalla is definitely one of the best books I’ve ever reviewed.

Not only is it beautifully illustrated, but the story is enough to get parents and kids interested in Henry and his animal friends.

I can’t recommend it enough, and I wholeheartedly believe that this is an essential addition to every parent’s digital library.

9 Most Useful Apps & Tools for College Students That Will Make You Smarter & More Productive

 5 college kids 800

One of the hardest things for a student to do is to stay motivated and productive. We go through it, hours of sitting around procrastinating, waiting for someone to knock on the door or phone us asking us to come out so we can justify an excuse for leaving our work till a later date.

Unfortunately, the work still needs to be done and it’s even harder to go back to it. Luckily, thanks to the age of technology we live in, there are countless apps and tools we can download and utilise to alleviate our stresses and ease our pains. Here, to make your life a little easier and a lot more productive is my nine productivity and development apps and tools.

Dictionary.com

To kick start my list, an app/website that can help you know and throughout your life. Dictionary.com allows you to search words and phrases to find the meaning, allowing you to expand your vocabulary, enabling you to write and speak precisely as you mean to. Log on using your computer or download the app for your respective smartphone.

Paper Fellows

This free to sign up online community is packed full of budding writers and writing professionals. Together, this creates a rich online community that can educate and advise you on the best way to approach your writing based situations. Whether you’re looking for advice on format, topic, content, writing style, ways to stay productive or even how to write the first word, Paper Fellows has something for you.

Brainscape

Flashcards have long been used as an effective learning tool to teach us about a subject in short, digestible sizes. Even when you’re in college, flashcards are a fantastic way to effectively learn for an upcoming test. Specifically for iOS devices, Brainstorm allows you to download free or paid flashcards to use right on your phone, covering a whole manner of subjects.

ToDoist

Getting organised is one of the most important aspects of getting things done. If you’ve got an ever-increasing workload and one really simple way just to combine and refer to then Todoist is the app for you. Available on all smartphone devices with seamless syncing to your desktop computer, this is such as a great app to list out your jobs the day and get them done.

Assignment Help

You could spend hours writing a perfect piece of content for your assignment only to hand it in and get a B, maybe even a C. It’s just not fair when the lecturer decides to mark you down just because there’s a typo or a spelling mistake that doesn’t really affect the overall content. To avoid this problem entirely, and to save you from doing it, upload it to Ox Essays where a professional writer can proofread your work for you!

MindGenius

Remember when you used to do mind-maps during your earlier years in school? The reason they used them then was that they’re visual and they work so well. They still work extremely well now! Simply download the software onto your desktop computer and get you organised and on the right path to creativity and increased levels of productivity.

Evernote

The critically acclaimed king of list apps and productivity booster. Evernote simply must be on this list as it features on every productivity list. Even though at its core Evernote is just a to-do list app, there are so many features seamlessly integrated into the software, it really can change your life.

CiteItIn

There’s one thing I do not miss about college would and that is referencing. The bane of my life, I wish had discovered CiteItIn sooner, a piece of free online software that allows you to create outstanding, professional looking references and citations that make your work look and sound incredible.

Academized

When researching for information for your assignment you may come across a simple sentence that says exactly what you mean but there’s no way to re-word it. You do this a couple of times in a 10,000-word assignment and you’re more than likely going to be caught out for plagiarism. This can even result in you getting removed from the course. To minimise and eliminate the risk, send off your work to Academized, a custom writing solution that can scan and check your work, editing it so it passes any plagiarism test.
