Travel Riddles: Trip to India, developed by Notus Games Ltd, is a fantastic match 3 game for iPad that whisks players away to the exotic destination of India.

Featuring plenty of puzzles to complete and artifacts to collect, this fun and free game is perfect for players who are looking for a new game to try.

Concept and Gameplay:

If you’re looking for an iPad game that’s loaded with content, Travel Riddles: Trip to India is definitely worth a look. The game features over 6 different levels/attractions to explore, each containing a variety of puzzles that players must unlock progressively.

In order to play Travel Riddles: Trip to India, you must match objects on the screen in sets of three or more by swapping them. If you’ve played games like Candy Crush and Bejeweled, you’ll pick up on how to play Travel Riddles: Trip to India immediately.

Even if you’re new to match 3 games, there are a few brief tutorials to help guide you through the basic concepts of the game.

One major difference between this game and others, though, is that the main objective is to make artifacts drop to the bottom of the screen by eliminating objects below them. As you collect artifacts, you’ll be able to unlock additional boosts.

Players receive a star rating based on how quickly they complete a level, and a certain number of stars must be earned before players can progress to the next area.

As you can probably guess, Travel Riddles: Trip to India is packed with great features. This includes Game Center integration, which allows players to earn up to 16 different achievements.

There are also power ups you can use during gameplay, which will significantly increase your chances of earning a good score on a level. Power ups can be replenished with gold earned from completing levels.

Travel Riddles: Trip to India is fantastic as it is, but there’s one thing I wish the game featured. It really needs a casual untimed mode where players can enjoy endless gameplay without having to rush in order to beat the clock. This is merely a suggestion, though, but it would definitely add a bit of variety to Travel Riddles: Trip to India.

Value:

Travel Riddles: Trip to India is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPad.

Overall, this is a fantastic free game that’s packed with great content. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new puzzle game to try, mainly because I had a bunch of fun playing it and I’m sure you will too!

TurningBall for iPhone is Similar to Flappy Bird, but Much Better

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Arcade games are a blast to play, mainly because they’re pretty straightforward and easy to learn. These games are great for killing time or trying to best a high score.

TurningBall is a stunning new iPhone game that’s a better Flappy Bird than Flappy Bird. It puts a bit of a twist on the game style by giving players a bit more control, and the result will make you smile.

Developed by Thomas Erring, this fun and free game is worth trying if you enjoy a good challenge.

Concept and Gameplay:

We can’t help but make the obvious comparison of TurningBall to Flappy Bird. The idea is pretty similar; guide the object through obstacles without hitting anything in order to achieve a high score. The primary difference between TurningBall and Flappy Bird, though, is that players have much more control over the ball.

In order to play TurningBall, simply start a new game and tap the screen in order to change the direction of the ball. One thing I noticed is that the ball tends to move pretty quickly, so you have to be accurate with your direction.

Another difference between TurningBall and similar games is that the only thing that ends the game is colliding with one of the obstacles. If you touch the top or bottom of the screen, you’ll actually earn 2 points, which is pretty neat. Players can also collect green diamonds along their journey, and each diamond grants 2 points, as well.

TurningBall iPhone Game

Personally I found TurningBall to be much more enjoyable than other Flappy Bird-like games. It’s nowhere near as frustrating to play once you get the hang of controlling the ball with perfectly timed taps.

Features:

TurningBall is a bit light on features, but it’s really not meant to be an in-depth game. However, players will be happy to know that the game includes Game Center integration and support for online leaderboards, meaning you can easily compete against friends for the highest score.

Also, TurningBall is completely free of in-app purchases, but the game does include small ads at the bottom of the screen. However, the ads didn’t interfere with gameplay or block any important elements, so they shouldn’t be bothersome.

Value:

TurningBall is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone.

Overall, this fun and challenging arcade game is much better than Flappy Bird thanks to an improved gaming mechanic and increased control over the ball.

This makes for a challenging, but not impossible, gameplay experience. I definitely recommend giving TurningBall a try if you’re looking for a new game to play.

Migalolo ocean ebook – 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade reading for kids
iPhone Book Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Migalolo ocean ebook is a charming and entertaining new iOS book app developed by Siu lui shirley Choi.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, Migalolo tells the story about a young boy, Henry, exploring the ocean through colorful animations and catchy sing-alongs.

Features:

As stated, this app is an illustrated ebook aimed at younger audiences. Specifically, the focus of the story featured in Migalolo is to explain the importance of nature conservation to children.

As such, this app is certainly one that can count as both educational and entertaining. Parents will appreciate the number of illustrations and overall content this ebook provides.

Other than its length, there are several other features of this app that will appeal to young and old audiences alike. For instance, one of the helpful features in the app is the ability to “place” multiple bookmarks throughout the story.

By saving a bookmark, a child could stop the story, then resume the story right where he/ she left off at a later time.

Another well-thought-out feature the developers of Migalolo created was the option to replay different scenes of the story.

This feature is especially useful for a child looking to find his favorite song quickly. In fact, speaking of the songs, the musical material of this app is arguably the best feature of Migalolo.

All the songs are very well written and composed; the music is of high quality for an app of this type.

Appearance and Layout:

Since Migalolo is designed as an illustrated ebook, the graphics are an important part of the app. However, while the drawings themselves have their own colorful style and look fine, the featured in-app “animations” were a bit disappointing.

In some scenes, characters basically slide across the screen. While very young audiences might not might not mind this lack of detailed animation very much, it is a feature that will probably be a bit frustrating to any adults guiding their little ones through the app.

We do appreciate that Migaglolo is an app that is easy to navigate, making it easy for children to use on their own if desired.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Migalolo ocean ebook is free to download from the iTunes App Store.

As a whole, if you’re looking for an app to keep a child busy, this will likely do the trick. The app is loaded with a lot of scenes and many songs for children to learn and sing along to while watching the videos.

We suggest downloading it using wifi since it is a bit of a larger app, but once you have it it’s a great way to carry along a “book” when you’re on the go.

Turbcast Informs and Calms Anxious Air Travelers

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

If you have to get somewhere in a relatively short period of time, flying is usually the way to go. However, it’s not everyone’s favorite method of travel, and usually one of the fears travelers experience is turbulence.

While modern commercial aircraft are build to withstand extreme turbulence, that doesn’t mean it’s comfortable to experience.

Turbcast is an iPhone app created by aviation professionals to help travelers learn about turbulence and get an estimated forecast quickly and easily.

Developed by Simplus Technologies Group, LLC, Turbcast is a great app for anyone who is a bit nervous about flying.

Concept and Functionality:

Turbcast is designed to provide users with a variety of resources for managing their fear of turbulence. Whether you’re an experienced traveler or you’ve only flown a couple of times, turbulence is something that can frighten anyone.

When you first open Turbcast, you’ll be taken through a few introductory screens that give you an idea as to what the app offers.

It’s primarily a turbulence forecast app, and it uses the same weather data provided to pilots in order to forecast the chance and severity of turbulence.

To use the forecast feature, you’ll need to provide the departure and arrival airport identifier and the departure and arrival time.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Turbcast iPhone App

Turbcast is much more than a turbulence forecast tool. It’s also a resourceful app that aims to educate travelers about turbulence and how to remedy anxiety.

Users can watch a short video about turbulence and read fact about the causes of it and how to cope with it when it occurs during a flight.

Personally I really like the idea of a turbulence forecast tool like Turbcast. Turbulence is usually something travelers don’t think of until they’re in the air, and being able to know what might occur will help to avoid surprises.

The developers have done an excellent job with the layout of the app, making sure it’s easy to navigate. After all, if you’re using it at the last minute you don’t want the app to add to your anxiety.

Features:

Turbcast includes a few useful features for users, such as the aforementioned facts page and video. One thing I noticed about the facts page is that even though it’s incredibly detailed and informative, it’s a bit tough to read due to small font and an animated background.

There’s a third media tool for anxious travelers to use, which is the panic button. This takes users to a short audio clip that addresses the fact that something has frightened the traveler, and the clip aims to help the user assess the situation and remedy it accordingly.

This is definitely a great feature in Turbcast, and I’m sure it’s one that travelers will utilize often.

Value:

Turbcast is available to download from the App Store for $1.99 and is designed for iPhone.

While the price might seem a little high, it’s a small cost for piece of mind if you’re an anxious traveler.

If you’re like me, you have a tendency to miss out on learning new things simply because you feel like there just isn’t enough time in the day to sit and read. Unfortunately this means you could be missing out on a new hobby or learning something fun and exciting.

NoteStream is an incredible app that revolutionizes the way you discover and learn new information, one note at a time.

Developed by NoteStream, Inc., this impressive app is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

Concept and Functionality:

The goal of NoteStream is to take large amounts of information on a topic and break it down into bite-sized notes that can be read in only a couple of minutes.

While this might sound like a daunting task, the app does a terrific job of delivering information in a way that even the busiest of people can learn something interesting over a short coffee break.

When you first open NoteStream, you’ll be asked to create an account either by email or with Facebook. Once you’re set up, you’re taken to the Explore page, where you can view every topic NoteStream covers.

Topics include lifestyle, travel, food, nature, music, and many more. Tapping on one reveals a list of NoteStreams curated by experts in their field so you can trust the information you’re reading.

Notes themselves are very precise and properly formatted to the app and screen, meaning NoteStream is visually appealing and lacks a messy interface or clunky navigation.

Simply swipe your finger left and right to move between notes. Users can easily add NoteStreams to their personal collection, which saves where they left off. It’s also easy to bookmark certain notes in streams for easy access later.

Features:

NoteStream was recently updated to 2.0, which added enhanced notification features so users could easily choose how they want to be notified of new streams released by their favorite authors.

Users can also choose how often they’d like to be notified, which definitely cuts down on noise if you’re subscribed to a bunch of authors.

Also, NoteStream uses a very curated list of authors so users can be certain that they’re receiving accurate information. This definitely impressed me, as similar apps and websites have a tendency to be a “free for all” and anyone can contribute. NoteStream also makes it easy to read up on authors via their biography.

Value:

NoteStream is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. Overall, I’m definitely impressed with the app and how well it organizes and delivers information to users.

The goal of NoteStream is to help you learn new things quickly, and it accomplishes it quite well.

I highly recommend giving the app a try if you enjoy reading about things that interest you.

Passible Password Manager Keeps Passwords Organized and Secure

Passible Password Manager. Passwords vault & secure login in 1
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Passible, by Clear Sky Apps Ltd, is a well-designed app that’s a great tool to help you keep your passwords all safely stored in one convenient location.

Available for $0.99 through the iTunes Store, this app is perfect for anyone trying to organize their digital life.

Features:

Passible is loaded with features to help keep not only passwords secure, but also credit card numbers as well. Once the passwords are entered into the app, there are multiple ways to retrieve them, including an option to “copy and paste.”

Another option to retrieve stored passwords is by using the iOS Safari web browser and utilizing the Passible extension to automatically fill in the login credentials on the screen.

Lastly, Passible is capable of launching its own web browser within the app and automatically inserting the appropriate login credentials where needed.

However, as mentioned previously, Passible isn’t just limited to saving login credentials and passwords.

Passible also provides a way of storing credit card information, a feature that will come in handy for anyone who does a lot of online shopping.

Similar to the saved passwords, you’re able to copy the card number with a tap and paste it into any iOS web browser.

Passible iPhone App

Passible iPhone App

Some other great features this app provides is a tool that creates a “score” of how secure your passwords are for the internet. It’ll even provide feedback on how to make a better password.

For  those that are worried about having their passwords all stored in one place, Passible has developed the app to utilize AES-256 bit encryption, along with the user’s own 40 character private key.

Passible states that this combination of protection is “impossible to crack.” Lastly, for the iOS devices that have the hardware, Passible is able to utilize the Apple device’s fingerprint scanner for quicker application logins.

Appearance and Layout:

We appreciate the work the developers have done creating an excellent layout that is easy to navigate and easy on the eyes.

The overall appearance has a “high-value” style that is not only aesthetically appealing but also useful. Being able to quickly login to “favorited” websites with one tap is fantastic and highly efficient.

One of the many reasons why Passible is a great app is because of the developers’ attention to detail. For instance, different categories of websites will have different icons.

When the app loads or utilizes a “splash screen,” the app displays computing digits that makes the application feel like it’s decrypting an electrical vault. All in all, Passible’s appearance is cleverly constructed into a wonderful and unique style that many apps struggle to achieve.

Value:

For only $0.99, Passible provides a multitude of features. Unlike other password apps that require a “subscription” service, Passible has all the features for one low price.

This in and of itself makes this iOS app highly valuable. If you’re looking for an application that is useful and convenient, then look no further than Passible. You shouldn’t pass this one up (pun intended)!
