Games are incredibly popular on the App Store and it’s no surprise that developers tend to put their own spin on popular titles.

It’s rare, but sometimes spin-offs turn out to be more popular than the original game.

Triple Prime is an addicting free game for iPhone and iPad that closely resembles the immensely popular 2048 game, but it has its own twists that make it lots more fun to play.

Featuring endless gameplay and Game Center integration, this great game is a must-have for anyone who enjoys puzzles.

Concept and Gameplay:

If you’re familiar with 2048, you won’t have any issues with figuring out Triple Prime, developed by Carlos Pessoa.

Even if you’ve never played the popular puzzle game, Triple Prime has an incredibly helpful interactive tutorial for new players.

The goal of the game is to slide numbers around the board and line up at least 3 of the same numbers. Tapping on them combines them and adds points to your score. The higher the numbers you combine, the more points you’ll earn.

One thing that sets Triple Prime apart from similar 2048 games is that each game gives players two free lives.

If you happen to run out of moves, you can use one of your lives to reset the board and line up your numbers so you can combine them again. The best part is that these lives are automatically given and you don’t have to wait for them to replenish.

Triple Prime is a pretty simple game, but it does have extra features that make it even better. My favorite feature is Game Center integration, which lets you compete against other players around the world for the highest score.

You can also earn a variety of achievements while playing the game.

Not only is Triple Prime fun and addicting, but it also serves an educational purpose. This fun game helps children learn prime numbers simply by playing it.

The best part is that both kids and adults will get hours of entertainment out of this challenging puzzle game.

Value:

Triple Prime is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The only in-app purchase is to remove ads for $0.99, but the ads aren’t intrusive.

However, we encourage you to go for the upgrade since it’s a great way to support these talented developers who have produced a fantastic game that’ll provide you with hours of fun.

Overall, Triple Prime is very easy to learn but difficult to master. I really like the fact that extra lives are a given and the game actually gives you a chance to get a high score. I can’t recommend it enough!

Auto Repair
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Auto Repair is the perfect fun app for the budding little mechanic and along the way inspires creativity and problem solving.

Available for $0.99 through the iTunes Store until June 30th, and $2.99 after that, this app makes learning about vehicle repair fun for little ones.

Features:

As indicated by its name, Auto Repair, by 5baam, is a game that guides children through the process of learning how to “fix” common problems that a vehicle might have.

These problems include needing to fix the timing belt, change the oil, or even scrub away rust while fixing light bulbs. Four different vehicles are featured in the app, including options that both little boys and little girls are sure to find entertaining.

There are over 20 repairs that need to be made on the cars and once a repair has been completed, a “snapshot” of that repair is added to the player’s corkboard, showing that he/she has completed the task.

However, the developers of this app have also designed it to show kids what would go wrong if they make the wrong decision about how to do a task, and I thought this fun little features was particularly impressive. Go ahead, try to clean the windshield with ice cream and see what happens.

Overall, I found the animations and tasks presented throughout Auto Repair to be both unique and entertaining, in short, perfect for kids.

Appearance and Layout:

Although this app focuses on real life automobile problems, it features cartoon graphics which are actually perfect for its target audience.

The drawings in Auto Repair are bright and friendly and keep the app visually pleasing, particularly to the eyes of a child. In fact, the graphics of this app are arguably one of its stronger features, and even adults will be impressed by the level of detail used in the drawings.

Navigating through Auto Repair takes a little longer than ideal on the first try (picture icons are used throughout the app instead of words), but once you have figured out where to go once, things become much simpler after that.

That being said, the images used should not really stump any child with experience using other apps and games. For example, “back” arrows direct users how to find their ways back to the home screen in the app.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Auto Repair is currently available through the iTunes Store for $0.99 until June 30th and $2.99 after that.

This is a one-time fee, and the app features no in-app ads or purchases, so parents do not have to worry about being charged any additional fees once an initial purchase has been made.

When considering the strong features, animations and graphics, Auto Repair is clearly an app of great value.

Jott Takes Messaging to a New Level

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Jott is an innovative messaging app that lets you communicate with your friends anytime, anywhere, online or offline.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this social networking app, by Juxta Labs, Inc, takes messaging to a whole new level.

Features:

Anyone who has ever been on a school bus ride and wanted to message a friend on the bus but didn’t have cell reception and didn’t want to use his/her wifi data is definitely the target audience of Jott.

Using the app’s “air chat” feature allows members in that situation to still be able to send messages to their friends, even without the traditional means (reception, internet).

I particularly appreciated how using this messaging service does not require you to connect your iOS app’s device to your actual phone number; instead, usernames and pre-set networks (like your school or workplace) are used to connect friends.

Another feature of Jott that makes it stand out from a traditional messaging service is its privacy options. These options include making messages disappear after they’ve been viewed and a screenshot detection function to let you know if someone has taken a screenshot of one of your messages.

The developers are clear to state, however, that actually preventing any screenshots from being taken is not among the features of Jott.

Appearance and Layout:

Part of the appeal of Jott can definitely be attributed to its appearance and layout.

This layout is mostly user-friendly, making it easy to figure out how to quickly navigate the app even on your first try; the only part I had mild difficulty with was figuring out how to adjust my chat settings to either connect/disconnect from the internet.

Fonts are all easily readable, and search features allow you to easily locate other friends who are users of the app. Photos are displayed with good quality in the app.

Setting up an account takes little to no time at all, particularly if you opt to login through an already existing Instagram account. It’s important to note that this account linking just helps you locate your friends within the app; no photos from your Instagram account are shared through Jott without your permission.

Value:

This app is a great value for its target audience.

It’s easy to use, features an attractive layout, does its job well and doesn’t cost anything.

While it can’t prevent others from taking screenshots of your messages after you send them, at least you’ll know if it happened.

Overall, it’s a good option for anyone looking for a way to communicate with friends without the need for wifi or cell reception.

Guess My Accent Is an Addicting Quiz Game for iPhone

Guess My Accent
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Guess My Accent is a brand-new title that’s both unique and fun to play. If you enjoy quiz games, this one’s for you.

Developed by RVSLabs Software EIRELI, this addicting quiz game will test your listening skills.

Concept and Gameplay:

I’m a huge fan of quiz games but they tend to get repetitive. Guess My Accent aims to change that by requiring players to rely on their ears rather than their knowledge. In order to play you must create an account using your email address or connect the game to Facebook.

Guess My Accent lets you play by yourself or against other players, which is fantastic and definitely something that not all quiz games offer.

Solo play consists of pre-recorded audio clips of someone reading a phrase. You must guess the country that the reader’s accent is from. You have four countries to choose from and can replay the clip a few times. If you guess correctly, you’ll earn points and achievements.

When it comes to difficulty, I found Guess My Accent to be a challenging trivia game that will definitely give players a run for their money. It’s not hard enough to make players give up, but it’s not easy enough to let you zip to the top of the leaderboard without effort.

Features:

Like most quiz and trivia games, Guess My Accent comes with a few extra features that make gameplay more exciting.

Players can use a variety of hints and boosts to improve their chances of finding the correct answer. Hints and boosts include bombs that remove incorrect answers, extra playbacks, and skips.

Guess My Accent also features integrated achievements and leaderboards, but unfortunately the game doesn’t include Game Center integration. I really like the achievements that you can earn and the detailed leaderboard, but I believe the game would greatly benefit from Game Center because players could easily connect with friends and challenge them.

Value:

Guess My Accent is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There are ads and in-app purchases for coins to purchase boosts, but the ads aren’t too intrusive.

Overall, Guess My Accent is a fantastic quiz game for iPhone that’s perfect for anyone who thinks they know their accents. Not only is the game fun to play solo, but it’s fun to play against others and have them try to guess your accent, as well!

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Keeping track of your water intake on a daily basis can be a task that feels like a chore if you use the wrong app to do so and the last thing you want is to become discouraged because tracking is a hassle.

Primo Water is a well-designed handy app that lets you track your water intake with one tap.

Concept and Functionality:

We’ve taken a look at other water trackers here on The iPhone App Review, and there certainly isn’t a shortage of them on the App Store.

One of the things that sets Primo Water, developed by Scirocco Consultants Inc., apart from the rest is the fact that it’s ridiculously easy to use.

Instead of having to fill out an extensive log sheet every time you want to add an entry, the only thing you have to do is tap the faucet on the main screen.

I do want to mention is that when you initially open the app, fluid units are in mL. If you’re not comfortable with metric or just prefer a different unit of measure, simply tap the cog wheel at the top of the screen and then tap on the Units section to change to ounces, cups, litres or whatever.

I was impressed to see how many languages are supported in Primo Water, 16 in all, which makes the app perfect for users all over the world.

I found Primo Water to be a pleasure to use.

In terms of navigation and usability, everything is easy to locate and set up. Also, you’ll notice the water level on the screen rise as you come closer to your daily goal. Visual references like this are incredibly helpful when it comes to encouraging you to keep sticking to your goals.

Primo Water goes far beyond simply logging your water intake.

As you continue to use the app over time you can check out the history log that details how much fluid you’ve consumed, as well as at what time of day. If you happen to miss logging a glass, the app lets you easily add it without hassle.

Also, Primo Water lets you choose from a variety of color themes to customize the app, as well as badge and push notifications so you can keep track of how much you’ve consumed or how much you need to drink in order to reach your goal.

Value:

Primo Water is available to download from the App Store for $1.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases to worry about, so what you see is what you get.

When it comes to price, it’s worth every penny if you’re serious about tracking your water intake.

Overall, Primo Water is a fantastic health app that not only helps you build good habits and reach your water intake goals, but it’s also very easy to use.

I highly recommend checking it out if you’re determined to stay on top of your health. And if you’re still wondering if this app is for you or not, check out Primo Water Lite for free. There are no ads or in-app purchases, although it is limited in terms of cups per day and reminders per day. Otherwise it is identical to full version.

Improve Your iOS Photography with Camera Plus

Camera Plus: For The Best Macro Photos & Remote Photography
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Camera Plus is an amazing camera app that offers an impressive range of features and is perfect for all of your iOS photo needs.

Available for $1.99 through the iTunes Store, this app, by Global Delight Technologies Pvt. Ltd, sets a high bar for the photo app category.

Features:

As indicated by its name, Camera Plus is an app that enables users to use their iOS device’s camera to an all new level of capability.

Specifically, this app’s features include everything from allowing remote control of your device’s camera (via a synced iOS device) to improving your macro photography to enabling instant modifications of the lighting in a photograph.

The first of these features is great for making it easier to take group shots that actually have the entire group in it (without the need for a selfie stick), and I found the “lumy” (light correcting) feature of Camera Plus to be equally impressive as well.

Other features include video capabilities (including an option to create reduced file sizes), a soft flash (for improving iPad photography), and full compatibility with the Apple watch.

Of course, as with any photography app, the photos you take through it will only be as good as your device’s camera itself; therefore, Camera Plus can be best enjoyed on newer devices.

Appearance and Layout:

Since Camera Plus has so many different functions, compacting them all into one clean interface would be an impressive task.

Fortunately for this app’s users, the designers of Camera Plus appear to have successfully done just that. These designers definitely used a minimalistic approach to incorporating a maximum number of features, however, and while this approach makes for a clean interface, it does make navigating through the app a little less than intuitive.

Instead, new users to the app will probably benefit from investing a little bit of time to fully explore it before using it; this way, they will discover how to do all that Camera Plus is capable of without having to continually wonder “where is ___?” for each new feature.

Overall, while getting around the app is a little trickier than ideal, the appearance and layout of this app are still impressive.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Camera Plus is currently available for $1.99 through the iTunes Store. For its target audience, this price is arguably entirely justifiable.

While figuring out how to use all of the features of the app takes a little time, users will not be disappointed once they have figured them all out.

Although definitely pricier than the many free photography apps on the iTunes Store today, at just under $2 Camera Plus will not disappoint its users.
