Overwhelmed by trying to figure out what gift that special someone will like? Stressed out by all the holiday shopping? If you’re looking for your ticket to a simpler holiday season, this app might be just what you’ve been looking for.

GiftGen, from BornToThink, comes to the rescue by dividing your search into a few core components, and helps you sort through thousands of possible gifts to find just the right gift.

While many of us might just guess at what friends and family might like, this app helps us to reach a bit of a more calculated approach.

Although there are still a few kinks to work out, the effort is noble and the timing of the app couldn’t be more perfect. GiftGen takes some risks, all in the hopes of bringing you a bigger, better and brighter holiday season.

GiftGen iPhone App Review

GiftGen iPhone App

Features:

The app itself is divided into four major categories; “Spend”, “Gender”, “Age”, and “Character”. Basically, you input the amount you’re looking to spend, whether you’re gifting a male, female, couple or individual, a target age range and a personality type.

Based on these criteria, the app will then deliver you some results that could be perfect for delivering the perfect gift. The app allows you to email your gift list, browse gifts within the app, customize searches and more.

Concept and Functionality:

The app has high ambitions, and we commend them for that. The interface of the app is not fully worked out however, and they’ll need to create a more universally accessible template to really bring people in.

With the amount of customization allowed by Google Shop and Amazon, we want to see this app not only conceptualizing, but delivering on fully customized search options with an aesthetically pleasing and easy layout.

Currency is listed in Euros as the app is based out of the UK, but that could easily be changed and allowing more currencies would give the app a boost.

To its great benefit, the app is somehow under 1 MB and downloads as soon as you tap the “GET” button in the App Store.

Overall Value:

GiftGen is built for iPad and iPhone and is off to a great start.

Categories like “Intellectual” and “Hippy / Spiritual” add some personality to the browsing experience, and the concept is spot on.

The app may just help you find the perfect gift, and we think that over time it will be a real asset to the e-commerce marketplace.

ALIVE – Video Editor Features Powerful Editing Tools and Effects

ALIVE – Video Edtior
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

 

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

If you enjoy Vine or other video-based social media platforms, ALIVE – Video Editor by ALIVE, Inc. is an app that you owe it to yourself to check out. This heavy-duty video editor includes a wealth of features for adding artistic flare to short video clips.

Concept and Gameplay:

Like Vine, ALIVE is meant for short video clips of 30 seconds or less. However, a lot can happen in 30 seconds, especially seeing as ALIVE lets you easily break clips into sections.

It might seem a bit daunting at first, but it’s not hard to find your way around ALIVE. To start making videos, simply open the built-in camera and start recording.

The ALIVE video editor shows you how much time you have left in your 30 second clip, and you can optionally stop and resume recording if you like. You can also upload existing videos to ALIVE and edit them.

Once your clip is recorded, you can use ALIVE’s built-in editor to add animated clip art to videos, as well as fancy text, music, and effect filters. I was really impressed with the amount of variety ALIVE offers as far as objects and filter effects, and there should be something for every video theme.

One very cool effect you need to check out is the motion tracking effects that you can add to videos by fine-tuning the timeline. Once you’re comfortable with how the app works, have at it.

ALIVE is more than a video editor, though. It’s also its own social media network. You can upload your creation to your ALIVE profile, where other users can comment on it and follow you. You can also share your video with other popular networks.

ALIVE iPhone App

ALIVE iPhone App

Features:

Along with very powerful editing features, ALIVE includes a few neat things for users to enjoy. This includes easily browsing what other users are uploading to the app. ALIVE also features a very nice timeline layout so you can keep track of people you’re following.

The only feature I was disappointed to find missing is the ability to download finished clips straight to your iPhone.

As someone who isn’t incredibly “social” when it comes to social networks, I primarily make artsy video clips like this for my personal collection. Giving users this option would improve the experience of people like myself without forcing them to upload their video to a social network.

Value::

ALIVE – Video Editor is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone.

Overall, ALIVE is a fantastic alternative to Vine and other social networks. Even if you’re not a very social person, the video editing features included in the app are very impressive and powerful.

I definitely recommend taking a look at the app if you want to tap into your inner artsy videographer.

Inbox Messenger Is A Flawless Way To Send Messages

Inbox Messenger
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

Keeping up with your text messages can be a huge chore. Typically I’m doing texts before I go to bed around 2AM, and by 8 or 9AM I’m back at it.

This can seem like a perpetual burden, unless of course you’ve got the right app to help you through it. That’s exactly where Inbox Messenger comes in.

Inbox Messenger, from inbox, is a beautiful modern messaging app that is about the best we’ve seen. It gets the job done and does it with an impossibly clean and simple layout. It illustrates exactly what we love about Apple in the first place; beautifully elegant text and white aesthetics.

Somewhere between your native messaging client and Snapchat, Inbox Messenger has come into the mix and is aiming for that top spot.

Features:

Three primary features strike me as the predominant advantages of Inbox Messenger. First, you can un-send messages. If you’ve ever typed out a reply a little too quickly or “LOL”-ed your editor instead of your best friend, you know exactly what we’re talking about, this can be a huge asset. Not that this has ever happened to anyone we know.

This feature is something we’ve been waiting for via SMS and iMessage, but now we have it with Inbox Messenger.

The second feature is privacy, allowing you to “cloak” messages to ensure they’re only read by the intended recipient. Whether your texting something a bit risque to a significant other or some proprietary information for your company, this can be a huge feature for those worried about phishing and hacking.

Finally, the layout is simply gorgeous. We love the amount of space and generally clean interface. Some apps try way too hard to dazzle and wind up clogging the screen. This little app does exactly the opposite and is better off for it.

Concept and Functionality:

We love to see active developers coming up with updates to keep their apps thriving and increasing fluidity. This dev team does just that, boasting an update as recently as December 2nd and keeping their baby running like a dream.

From a quick download to a simple login, the functionality here is simply as smooth as the concept in the first place.

Overall Value:

Flawless. We can’t wait to see updates of this app, simply to see how it could possibly be improved upon further.

From the price tag (free) to the features, layout and beyond, this app gets a roaring review from us here at TheiPhoneAppReview. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to catch up on some texts.

The holiday season is in full swing, and now that we’ve entered the month of December, it’s time to get into the spirit of the season.

Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music, a brand-new game for iPhone and iPad from Ariel Ramos, is a fun and challenging collection of puzzles and the perfect game to cozy up with on a festive night.

Developed by mDecks Music, this game is a delight and, if you’re a puzzler, you can’t go wrong.

Concept and Gameplay:

After reviewing iPhone and iPad games for a few years now, I’ve grown to enjoy certain genres I otherwise wouldn’t think twice about. Puzzles are an example, and Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music features many of them.

Essentially Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is a very large compilation of assorted puzzles, from guessing Christmas songs via a sound byte to solving picture puzzles.

One of the very unique things about the game is that it’s progressive, meaning players don’t get to choose what kind of puzzle they want to solve. Instead, you must chain-play through puzzles in order to reach a high score.

As far as the puzzles go, there’s a pleasant mix of simple and complicated levels to solve. Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music seems to get more difficult as you progress through puzzles, which is perfect for those who like scaling difficulty.

I found myself stumped on the zoomed in picture puzzles a few times, but there are hints that’ll help you if you can’t solve the puzzle.

Features:

Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is a fairly straightforward game, but there are a few things that help separate it from other puzzles. First, the game allows you to easily stop playing no matter your progress, and you can resume at your last puzzle with no penalty to score or the like.

Seeing as this can definitely become a marathon game, this is a feature I was really happy to stumble upon.

Also, as I mentioned above, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music includes hints and boosts for players if they happen to get stumped on a puzzle. The game is pretty generous with hints when you first start playing, but if you run out you can purchase more via the in-game store.

Value::

Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. In terms of value, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is definitely a lot of bang for your buck. The puzzles are fun to solve, and best of all, there’s variety.

If you’re looking for a game that’ll get you into the holiday spirit, Christmas Puzzles by mDecks Music is definitely one that shouldn’t be passed up. I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of puzzles.

Mega Photo Is A Win For Selfie Enthusiasts Around The Globe

Mega Photo: 100+ Free, Real-Time Camera Effects
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

Look; in the digital age even grandma and grandpa are taking selfies. Everybody has an iPhone and everybody is taking pictures of everything they see, including the meal they just ate and that curly looking dog they just saw.

But hey, why stick to boring plain vanilla shots? Why not download the latest photo app to stay ahead of the pack?

The updated Mega Photo app, from Falstad.com, has an impressive array of features, coupled with a well-designed UI for ease-of-use, making it stand above the crowd of dozens upon dozens of photo-centric apps.

Mega Photo distinguishes itself in a number of important ways. What are they? Well, how’s this for starters – the app boasts over 100 separate effects and filters built directly into the app.

With a huge assortment of styles and cool 3-D digital effects, we bet that you’ll find something within Mega Photo that you’ve never even seen before. For example, you can twist, morph, warp and pinch both photos and videos.

The download is free, the functionality is spot on, and the app as a whole is a huge win.

Features:

This app proudly weighs in at under 20 MB, which is pretty remarkable considering the amount of filters and dynamics built into the app.

A good deal of the photo effects are interactive and can record you in either video or still-photo in real time. Move the lens to adjust the angle on 3-D recordings, which are especially cool.

Mega Photo can send your face zooming down a fast paced infinite tunnel, while mirroring your image into a thousand reflections. Now how’s that for one-up on a selfie?

Concept and Functionality:

With over 100 effects, clean construction and a light-weight build, Mega Photo is out to win it. Most photo apps I download and then delete after a few snaps. However, this one has earned a space on my iPhone full time.

The app doesn’t crash even when being opened and closed repeatedly and allows Social Media sharing without a hitch.

Overall Value:

The paid version of the app is only $2.99 and the free version is well, free!

We are impressed with how the developers of Mega Photo make it so easy to use the many filters and effects included in the app which means that people will actually use them.

There’s nothing to lose and everything to gain by downloading this app. You’ll love it, and it gives reputable and established apps like Photo-Express and Afterlight a real run for their money. You can also stop by their website to learn more.

For photography enthusiasts or simply for your next selfie, download Mega Photo to stay on the cutting edge.
