Fruit-Slinger is a new game developed by Exalt LLC that involves slinging fruit at targets. It sounds simple enough, but with the amount of detail and content in this app, the game has a lot of to offer.

The controls to Fruit-Slinger consist of tapping or shaking your iOS device to build up “slinging power.” Once you have the amount of power built up, swiping the screen from the bottom up throws the fruit toward the target.

The trajectory of the fruit being slung depends on its weight, as well as on the angle and distance of the swipe. Fruit-Slinger has excellent in-game physics that add a level of difficulty to the gameplay, while also making the game more enjoyable overall.

Fruit-Slinger features an abundance of levels, each with different playing modes that include “timed,” “limited,” “trick,” and “training.” Each mode’s name is indicative of what to expect in that mode, with “training” being an excellent option for anyone who just wants to get the hang of the game.

Taking place in an old western-styled town, Fruit-Slinger features charming graphics. Even the environment is interactive; I noticed that I was accidently breaking windows and signs in the town, due to my errant throwing of fruit.

These little details make Fruit-Slinger all the more enjoyable. Although Fruit-Slinger does a lot of things right in the visual aspect of the game, there were a few things that could be fixed. For example, a lot of the in-game characters’ dialogue was cut off on my screen.

I was still able to make out what was written, but this wasn’t aesthetically appealing. Also, there isn’t a dedicated icon to access the in-game store. It took some sleuthing, and more intuitive navigational controls would certainly have been appreciated. Thankfully, these minor flaws can easily be fixed with an update.

Fruit-Slinger has a lot to offer, especially for a free app. There aren’t really any ads to speak of, and because of this, there isn’t anything that would populate the screen and detract from the gameplay. However, the game does utilizes in-app purchases.

Playing any game mode besides training mode costs one “energy bolt.” Completing levels earns you coins and stars. Coins are the currency of the game that are used to buy power ups and energy bolts, while stars unlock levels to play.

If a player runs out of coins, there is an option to purchase additional coins with an in-app purchase. Because this game incorporates in-app purchases, it would be nice to have some sort of parental lock to prevent a child from making any unwanted purchases.

Still overall, Fruit-Slinger is a wonderful, challenging game that is loaded with content that will keep you or your little one busy.

 Trail the Tail Will Entertain and Challenge Your Child

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

Trail the Tail, from Thematica, is a wonderful set of 12 colorful and fun games that will delight your child as he or she solves problems and learns about animals. If you’re looking for a solid educational game for your little one to play on your iPad, give this one a whirl.

Features

The app starts out with a very nice upbeat tune that works very well for the content and targeted age group (ages 5 and under). The first screen is very colorful with a bit of animation and shows five options; one button for parents, one button to access all 12 games, and three buttons in front of waving animal tails that take you to three different games.

One option takes you to a “parents” screen, blocked by a simple math problem, where you can subscribe to their newsletter, write a review, contact the developers via email, or read their privacy policy.

There is no language anywhere in the games themselves and so they work well for young children. They require some amount of exploration and problem solving to first figure out what to do and then to complete the activity. We especially like how there is never any negative response to an incorrect guess or failed effort.

The three “play” buttons on the bottom of the main screen are quick links to three games, but always the same three games. With twelve games in all, we’d like to see these buttons customizable so a parent to select which game each one starts. That would allow a parent to make sure their child can easily get to three of their favorites.

Trail the Tail iPad Game

Gameplay

Each of the twelve games uses a different animal to present its little puzzle or challenge. Some of the games are very simple and cute, others require a bit of skill with placement and timing to get through and finish it. The monkey game in particular is very cute and requires each little monkey to be placed into a hammock and then rocked so it goes to sleep.

A number of the games teach the player about the foods that an animal eats and others are just fun. For example, to complete the lion game you have to pick the meat items from the group at the bottom of the screen and move five of them to the lion’s mouth. Each animal can be touched to make it move and make a sound. Other items are also touch sensitive, such as birds that fly when they’re touched.

Overall Value

This is an excellent app to fire up and sit down to spend some quality time with your child. Kids will love the tune, the colorful cartoon animal images and graphics, and the age-appropriate problem solving puzzles. While it does cost three bucks, it is well worth it since there are no ads or IAPs to worry about.

Press Release: PromptSmart for iOS Delivers the Easiest Public Speaking Experience

promptsmarticon 150x150 Press Release: PromptSmart for iOS Delivers the Easiest Public Speaking ExperienceFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

October 2, 2014 – New York, NY – PromptSmart has released their first free update (v1.1) for their app, PromptSmart, an innovative teleprompter app for the iPad and iPhone that uses VoiceTrack™ proprietary speech recognition technology to deliver the easiest public speaking experience.

 Press Release: PromptSmart for iOS Delivers the Easiest Public Speaking ExperiencePromptSmart is the first app of its kind to implement VoiceTrack™, the innovative speech recognition software. This revolutionary new approach to teleprompting allows PromptSmart to “listen” to the speaker’s voice and adjust scrolling speeds to match the speaker in real time. It provides the smoothest, most seamless prompting experience ever, besting even traditional models in terms of efficiency. All of this can be performed directly from the device as well, requiring no additional data connectivity.

PromptSmart provides users with more than just its cutting-edge speech tracking capablity. It also includes notecard ready additions for simple outlines in place of full speeches; simple document uploading with minimal rendering adjustments, text mirroring for compliance with glass prompting rigs, and audio recording for practice sessions.

A recent review from TheiPhoneAppReview.com gave PromptSmart a rating of 4.5/5 stars and said, “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.”

The top-rated review site went on to add, “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.”

“From my time coaching MBA students in public speaking,” said Founder and CEO Eric Sadkin, “I saw an opportunity to significantly improve the speaking experience using today’s mobile technology. PromptSmart aims to be the most advanced, accessible speech aid for any speaker.”

In addition to the features already mentioned, PromptSmart allows for place-holding during speeches. If the user should go off script, the app will wait until text is recognized again. PromptSmart also allows for the customization of text color and size alongside significant timing capabilities.

PromptSmart v1.1 is available on the iTunes App Store for a launch price of only $9.99. It is compatible with iPad and iPhone, requiring iOS 7.0 or higher.

 

About the Developer:
PromptSmart was born out of a passion for public speaking. As a Communications Fellow at Wharton Business School, PromptSmart CEO and Founder Eric Sadkin coached and mentored students in the art of public speaking. He realized that many orators would be better supported by an intuitive, speaker-controlled teleprompter and a way to digitally create and display notes. Sadkin also recognized that today’s mobile devices could address these needs. With these in mind, PromptSmart was created.

Review by Adam Itkoff

How fast are you really? No, we’re not talking about running a mile, or even your IQ score. We’re talking about furiously tapping at the screen, to destroy tiny colorful blocks.

That’s the essence of Zuku Blox, from Jacob Pickens, which will demand the best of your reflexes. Even if you let a single box slide past you on the screen, the jig is up! So be quick, then be quicker.

Zuku Blox is a relatively simple game, but don’t let its simplicity fool you. This one packs on a truckload of frenetic fun and as many features as it can muster. It has 15 + Game Center Achievements, and encourages the Game Center and leaderboard in order to keep things as competitive as possible.

You’ll definitely have more fun with this title if you attempt to hit the leaderboard for new highs, and will be surprised at the skill required to lock in that sought after Top Ten spot.

The game will get harder as you play, and you won’t be allowed a very high margin of error. Actually, you won’t be allowed any margin for error! Eventually, these blocks zip past you at incredible speeds.

The game also has a few different background songs to keep you grooving, including; “Wizard House” by Azureflux, “Graveyard Shift” by Azureflux, and the classic title “Wake The F**k Up” by The Prodigy. We’ve got to give this title accolades for valuing music as an integral part of gaming as well.

This game is pretty straightforward when it comes to functionality. First, you’ll think that the game is pretty easy, and you may even get bored. About 20 seconds in, things start to pick up, and you’ll realize that Zuku Blox isn’t for chumps after all.

You may even be tempted to bring two fingers to the screen to keep up! In regards to functionality, the game is pretty lightweight, never crashes, and is colorful as well.

Some blocks are green, some blue, and as mentioned, there are a few different theme songs for your listening pleasure. The concept is strong enough, and this one earns its keep.

 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.
