As someone who loved RC cars when they were a kid, I was excited to take Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft, developed by MH Production, for a spin.

Hoverdroid 3D is an exhilarating game that puts players in the driver seat of an all-terrain hovercraft with the goal of successfully completing a wide variety of missions.

Concept and Gameplay:

Recently released for iOS on April 17, Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft is refreshingly different from your run-of-the-mill racing games and definitely off to a strong start as far as being a solid game.

According to the game’s App Store description, this is indeed the very first 3D radio controlled hovercraft game for iOS.

Players who are new to Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft are treated with an interactive tutorial level the guides them through the basic controls of the hovercraft.

There are two control styles that players can use – a single on-screen joystick on the right-hand side of the screen or two separate joysticks that imitate an actual RC controller.

Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft features gorgeous graphics and a fun landscape for players to zoom around in.

Each of the 24 levels is different and features a wide variety of missions for players to complete. Missions include timed challenges, clearing snow, transporting goods, and even racing an RC helicopter. Players earn 1 to 3 stars based on how many objectives there able to complete for the mission.

When it comes down to it, Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft is a downright addicting game that players will have a hard time putting down once they begin playing.

The controls are very easy to understand and master, and missions are fun to complete.

From gorgeous graphics to 24 fun and unique missions to play, Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft definitely has all of the bases covered when it comes to being a great game to play.

Players can even unlock different skins for their hovercraft, as well as the ability to turn their hovercraft into a flying machine.

Also, if you’re playing Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft on an older device, the game features the ability to toggle graphics settings in order to increase graphics quality or FPS.

While this might seem like a minute detail, this is a feature that I wish more games included.

Value:

Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases, but the game is supported by ads that pop up at the beginning of a mission and at the end. By no means are they intrusive, so they shouldn’t be a bother to players.

Overall, if you’re looking for a fun and addicting game to try, Hoverdroid 3D: RC hovercraft is definitely the way to go. Not only is it a blast to play, but the graphics are amazing.

Annie Baby Monitor – The Most Reliable Baby Monitoring App (3G, LTE, Wi-Fi)

As a parent, you do your best to try and be everywhere at once. However, this isn’t always the case. Technology is a fantastic thing, though, and it even allows you to turn two iOS devices into a sleek and functional baby monitoring system.

Annie Baby Monitor, developed by Master App Solutions, is an incredible baby monitoring app for iPhone, iPad, and even Apple Watch. The fantastic design and intuitive layout makes it easy to set up a monitor in minutes.

Concept and Functionality:

While Annie Baby Monitor certainly isn’t the first baby monitor app available, it’s definitely one of the best. Other apps tend to be glitchy and buggy, which is something you definitely don’t want when it comes to keeping an eye on your child.

To set up Annie Baby Monitor, you’ll need two iOS devices with the app installed. One device will be for the child and the other will be for the parent.

The app does a great job of guiding first time users through the process of pairing devices, so don’t be concerned about a complicated or clunky interface.

Once two or more devices have been paired, Annie Baby Monitor suggests that you set up a profile for each child. This consists of a name and photo. Once the profile is set up, you can begin monitoring immediately.

Annie Baby Monitor uses the device’s microphone to monitor sounds and alerts the parent device when the child is awake and making noise. Unlike many baby monitor apps, this one lets you actually hear the noise the child is making, whether it’s cooing or yelling.

Baby monitor apps tend to either be filled with too many so-so features or not enough good ones to make them functional. Thankfully, this is not the case here.

Annie Baby Monitor has struck the perfect balance between simplicity and usefulness.

From being able to monitor within seconds to having a visual timer of how long a child has been asleep, this app has it all.

Also, Annie Baby Monitor lets parents monitor up to four children at the same time, which is definitely a standout feature as long as you have enough iOS devices to monitor them with.

There’s even an incredibly detailed and useful activity log for parents to track how well their child is sleeping.

Value:

Annie Baby Monitor is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. Parents get a free 30 minute trial for the app, which begins when monitoring starts.

Unlocking the full version of the app is $3.99, which is still cheaper than a full set of baby monitors if you have a few old iOS devices sitting around.

Overall, Annie Baby Monitor is a must-have app for parents who want a convenient and reliable way to monitor their baby. The app is loaded with many useful features and I’m sure parents will enjoy using it.

annie_baby_monitor.jpgAnnie Baby Monitor requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

iSlept – Location Alarm
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

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.

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

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:

Prot-On iPhone App

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.
