 Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Here at the iPhone App Review, we are always on the lookout for the best new arcade games on iOS. And today, we’re serving up a juicy concept with a smooth, minimalist execution. This good-looking app’s name is Nimbler, from iShare AB, and as the name suggest, you’ll want to be quick on your toes to keep up with it. 

The game is fun, free and absolutely time-consuming—the three things we crave most over here at Review HQ. And if you’d like to know even more about what Nimbler is packing, you’ll find our full review below the break. 

Concept and Gameplay star Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?star Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?star Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?star Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?emptystar Nimbler: How Quick Are You Really?

At first glance, Nimbler might look like a fairly easy game. It asks the player to tap circles as they appear, and to tap them the requested number of times. The user must do this before the timer on the point runs out. In other words, you’ll need to quickly tap whatever appears, and you’ll have to do it before your time limit is reached. 

That might sound simple—and in a way, we suppose it is. But dear god above is it difficult! We rushed feverishly across the screen, trying our damnedest to keep up with Nimbler’s pace. But even then, this application demands a lot from its devotees. You’ll have to test the very limits of your finger-flicking skills to stay alive, and even then, you’ll often fail. 

And this makes Nimbler absolutely killer. The game is a whole heaping helping of fun, and if you’re in the mood for stupid simple yet endlessly rewarding arcade title, you’ve got it right here.

One of the things that makes Nimbler so good, in fact, is the way it looks. There are no distractions, no real elements to the interface: Just you and that blank wall of torture the game calls a screen. This makes the points easy to see, but ever so difficult to tap correctly. 

We like the attention to detail the developers have put behind Nimbler. The varying time limits and tap limits creates a rich and rewarding atmosphere. However, it could be concluded that Nimbler is too hard.

We don’t easily cry uncle, but Nimbler is truly a fast game. If you’re not Sonic the Hedgehog, we imagine you’ll be weeping openly just trying to stay up on the action.

Despite the difficulty, Nimbler is still a unique concept with a whole lot of promise, and that deserves some attenuate. The developers have here created a deliciously simple yet tastefully hard arcade concept. That’s something we appreciate a great deal, and as such we’re giving Nimbler four out of five stars. 

Really, though: If you’re looking for a totally inventive and absolutely mind-bending arcade title, look no further. Nimbler is your new best mate.

Ultimate Next is quickly becoming a rising star in the App Store. Developed by InhoLee, this feature-rich app for iPhone and iPad is sure to have something for the person who wants a bit of everything in a calendar app.

Concept and Functionality: star Take Control of Your Schedule with Ultimate Next   All in One Calendarstar Take Control of Your Schedule with Ultimate Next   All in One Calendarstar Take Control of Your Schedule with Ultimate Next   All in One Calendarstar Take Control of Your Schedule with Ultimate Next   All in One Calendarhalfstar Take Control of Your Schedule with Ultimate Next   All in One Calendar

Without a doubt, Ultimate Next has gone above and beyond to bring together information that users need on a daily basis. On the surface it looks like a standard calendar app, but it really is so much more than that. From tracking your finances to keeping tabs on your to-do list, Ultimate Next really has it all.

Naturally an app that handles so much information has to do so intuitively, and that’s where Ultimate Next falls a bit short. On the iPhone the interface is not kind to anyone who has trouble hitting very small buttons that are close to each other. Also, it takes quite a long time to figure out exactly what does what. While there’s a tutorial that attempts to guide you through Ultimate Next, it’s difficult to read on the iPhone because the font is so small. Of course this is not much of an issue when using this app on an iPad.

Interface issues aside, Ultimate Next functions quite well once you get the hang of the app. There’s a very steep learning curve, though, and you have to be patient with both yourself and the app if you want to master every single thing it allows you to do.

It would be impossible to cover every single feature Ultimate Next offers, but there are a few that are worth highlighting.

The biggest feature would be complete integration with your iCloud data, making it incredibly easy to sync information between your devices. I do wish the app included import support for popular finance apps and to-do apps, but that’s only a suggestion.

Also, Ultimate Next allows users to set a passcode for their calendar, adding quite a bit of safety and security to personal information. Remember, not only do you have appointments stored in the app, but also finance data, notes, and your to-do list.

Setting a passcode is a wise thing to do for any app that supports it, and I’m glad to see that Ultimate Next already has this covered.

Ultimate Next is currently available to download from the App Store for $1.99, but this is a limited time launch promotion. The app is regularly priced at $4.99.

Considering everything it can do, plus the fact that it’s a universal app, it’s definitely priced well. However, do remember that this is not your grandma’s calendar app. It’s for serious people who are looking for a serious all-in-one solution to their daily life tracking needs.

 Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

SKIT!, by Storytime Studios, Inc., provides iOS users with a convenient platform to make and share fun, and sometimes goofy, animated video messages. Currently available for free through the iTunes Store, SKIT! will bring your still-images to life.

Features: star Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!star Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!star Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!star Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!emptystar Bring Photos to Life with SKIT!

This inventive app will bring your photo library to life by adding fun, animated options. With SKIT! you can add funky “stickers” to your still images and these images can then be used for SKIT! animated stories simply by using the app’s Story Starter Wizard.

Old “stories” can also be remixed to create new animations as well. Overall, I found using SKIT! to be simple and fun. The animations and edits/stickers possibilities were definitely expansive enough to be entertaining for a good period of time and importing my own photos into the app was easy to accomplish.

Setting up an account is required prior to starting to use this app. While some iOS users might feel wary of having to give out their email address just to access the features of SKIT!, on the plus side, you don’t have to use your Facebook account to register.

Once created, SKIT! clips can be texted (via SMS), emailed, Tweeted, or shared through Facebook if desired.

SKIT! is an app that includes a large number of feature options, and because of this it might seem that the screen could easily be cluttered at any one time.

Fortunately, this is not really the case with the layout of SKIT!. Instead, the makers of this app have created a relatively clean user interface.

Although this interface is not entirely intuitive, the app features adequate instructional videos in order for the average user to catch on to how to make the most out of what the app has to offer.

In general, I appreciated the simple graphics of SKIT!, and navigating through the app as a whole was decently smooth as well.

This is a great app for anyone who loves making GIFs, funny pet videos, or adding quirky edits to photos. SKIT! is definitely a fun and enjoyable app. It has lots of potential for new capabilities but even just as it is, it’s an app that should be much appreciated by its target audience.

C1 169x300 ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Success

Review by Adam Itkoff

Your mobile device is a wonderful tool. You can record moments around you, take notes, look up pertinent information, and engage with people across the globe. In many ways, the digital revolution is defined by our mobile devices, which often become extensions of ourselves.

With this passionate outlook, we present you with ClipUp, from Peter Fischer. ClipUp is a fantastic way to organize your ideas on the iPhone and iPad. You can use this app to save ideas and are able to pin all types of media to a central board. Then, navigate this board when you want to look back at, and further refine your ideas.

For example, if you’re out and you catch a note of a great track, you can record it and post it to ClipUp. Then, maybe you screenshot a Wikipedia article on the genre of the track, and pin it next to the recording.

Now, effortlessly, you’ve started to create a collection of your ideas. That’s what ClipUp is all about! Save your notes, files, ideas and more and navigate easily whenever you please.

Features: star ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Success

What we like most about ClipUp is its biggest feature, the idea board. This serves as the crux of the app and allows you to save images, videos, websites, text, audio files, and miscellaneous files directly to the center of the app.

C2 168x300 ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Success

All of these files are displayed in little squares, which help to create a balanced and approachable feel to the app as a whole.

You can drag-and-drop files wherever you need them to go, set reminders if any ideas are time-sensitive, and share your ideas via email, Social Media, and more.

The app itself was also updated this week, and prides itself on continuously improving and enhancing features.

Concept and Functionality: star ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Success

This biggest parallel here is most likely Evernote. Evernote also lets you navigate between ideas big and small, and attempts to be your one stop shop for content and idea aggregation. However, ClipUp is built for visual learners and those who get a kick out of powerful images.

If you don’t like taking notes, then ClipUp should be your productivity app of choice. Generally, it runs smoothly and has a clean feel. Visually, it finds itself somewhere between Flipboard and Notepad, but finds a way to synthesize and give you the best of both worlds.

Overall Value: star ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Successstar ClipUp Is A Visually Striking Success

Those who are more visual, or who may have tried Evernote and Notepad, but weren’t satisfied by the approach of these apps, should definitely give this app a try. For those on the visual side of the coin, ClipUp is going to be a wonderful addition to your brainstorming and note taking rotation!

trimmin – window shop with friends, from Stone Soup Kitchen, Inc., makes shopping for gifts a breeze. Designed to help users discover an incredible range of retail brands, trimmin takes a lot of the guesswork out of gift giving.

Features: star Go Virtual Window Shopping with trimminstar Go Virtual Window Shopping with trimminstar Go Virtual Window Shopping with trimminstar Go Virtual Window Shopping with trimminstar Go Virtual Window Shopping with trimmin

Just like its name suggests, trimmin is an app created to help consumers buy gifts for friends and family members alike.

Creating an account is accomplished in mere seconds, and these accounts can be easily linked to other social media accounts (like Facebook). Finding friends already using the app is also simple to do, and friends can be “followed” if desired.

This way, users of trimmin stay up to date on their friends’ favorite brands–knowledge that should be useful whenever the time comes to purchase gifts for those friends. trimmin can also be used to discover new brands yourself and to create gift lists and wish lists as well.

Daily featured brands are quick to scroll through, and a full list of brand search categories should keep users occupied with discovering exciting new brands as well.

It’s also worthwhile to note that the daily featured brands in this app are being recognized for their commitment to improving the world through selling ethically sourced products.

Finally, the layout of trimmin allows you as the user to keep updated on social media posts from those brands, as the app provides an editorial-style layout access to things like the brand’s Pinterest account.

The layout and overall design of trimmin is excellent. I was extremely impressed with the choice of fonts and complete layout of the app; the screen was never too cluttered or too empty, and a good blend of beautiful photographs and text balanced each other well.

Even though a good number of brightly colored pictures and other stimuli are on the screen at one time, good use of space in trimmin ensures that screens still look clean and straightforward at all times.

Scrolling through the various featured brands was definitely addicting in a Pinterest-like way, thanks largely to the ease of navigation through this app.

trimmin is currently available for free through the iTunes Store. Connecting with friends and family through it is also completely free, and the added gift-buying ease provided through using this app is arguably rather priceless.

As mentioned previously, it’s obvious that great thought and care was put into creating the design and layout of trimmin–a fact that should be appreciated by any consumer.

Overall, trimmin is an excellently designed app that definitely lives up to its claims.

The Perfect Traveler website has been around for years providing audio tours for four Italian locations; Florence, Rome, Venice, and Tuscany with a focus on arts, culture, food and wine, and just walking around.

You can now take their tours with you with their new app, P.T Tours. It’s a new virtual tour guide app on iOS, featuring audio tours, museum guides, and more.

The app not only gives you access to the audio tours but also includes a “Stories” section and an “Art Guide” section.

The latter one is quite expansive covering Europe, Americas, Asia Pac, and Africa.

We like how it makes it so east to bring up-to-date information and news with you to listen to as you walk around various key tourist attractions.

Their tagline, “Making you the Perfect Traveler”, seems to sum up well what they’re all about.
