Learning how to get along with others is one of the most important skills you can develop as an adult. However, it never hurts to have a little assistance when it comes to gaining insight on your relationship with a friend or coworker.

That’s where PersonalityMatch comes into play.

PersonalityMatch is a fantastic personality app that uses the Myers-Briggs personality system to help you determine your personality type and see how it correlates with others.

Concept and Functionality:

Even if you’ve taken the Myers-Briggs test in the past and you know your personality type, PersonalityMatch, by Online Commerce Group BV, is worth checking out. It’s fun to use and doesn’t exhaust you with an endless set of questions.

The built-in quiz took me a couple minutes to complete and my results matched what I’ve received before.

Unlike other personality apps that tend to nickel and dime users, PersonalityMatch provides a wealth of information right out of the gate. You can easily see a detailed breakdown of your personality type and what each characteristic means.

This is fantastic for anyone who has never taken the test before and would like to see a breakdown of each characteristic.

The real reason it was developed centers around the ability to compare your personality type with someone else to see how compatible you are.

This can be done with ease and the app rates your compatibility on scale of 0% to 100%. The higher the number, the more compatible you are.

As you can probably imagine, PersonalityMatch is loaded with awesome features to help you understand yourself better.

Along with in-depth details on your specific personality type, you can even connect with friends and see how you compare with them once they’ve taken the test for themselves.

PersonalityMatch even features a career path analysis, but unfortunately it’s locked unless you pay $2.99. This isn’t really a huge drawback, though, because not everyone will be concerned about finding the right career.

However, students and professionals who are looking to make a change will definitely find the information in PersonalityMatch useful.

Personally I wouldn’t take it as serious career advice, but you may stumble on something you wouldn’t have otherwise thought of and get some real value from its assessment.

Value:

PersonalityMatch is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. Aside from the in-app purchases for extra features, you don’t have to worry about ads. As I mentioned above, the value of additional features totally depends on your situation.

Overall, PersonalityMatch is a fantastic personality tool to help you understand yourself better and see how compatible you are with others.

You’ll be able to gain insight into your relationships and analyze why they work the way they do.

Think Fast in Color Dash!

Color Dash! is an exciting fast-paced games that challenges you to think quickly and concentrate on the task at hand.

Free through the iTunes Store, this game makes you think on your toes.

Features:

Color Dash!, as indicated by its name, is app where your quick recognition of colors is essential for success.

However, you’re thrown for a twist in this clever game, by Hari Pingali. Even though your job is to correctly match the word color to the color block, the actual word itself is often spelling out a different color which really distracts your mind from its task.

For instance, while the font coloring that you need to match is blue, the letters of the word itself might read “red.”

As simple as this sounds it’s actually an impressively tricky game, particularly when paired with a need to work quickly.

Different challenges such as constantly moving locations of colors within the game keep things fresh even when you’re feeling like an “experienced” player.

Playing Color Dash! is a smooth operation; I found that the app didn’t lag at all as I worked towards trying to make high scores, although my brain definitely felt like it was lagging at times!

As a whole, this app offers an entertaining way to challenge your brain.

Appearance and Layout:

However, while Color Dash! is a fun game conceptually, it’s a bit lacking in visual appeal.

This is not just because the colors are very glaringly bright (it’s understood these colors are an essential part of the app) but it’s more an issue of an overall non-impressive usage of layout and fonts.

Specifically, the typography within the app feels old and dated–and not in a classic, vintage way.

The layout of Color Dash! is not intuitive; navigating through Color Dash! should be a seemingly simple task, but the in-app navigational titles aren’t as clearly descriptive as ideal.

While this is definitely a fun game, it’s not one that will attract players through its graphics.

Value:

Color Dash! is an entertaining game. It’s simple to grasp the concept of, but it does make you think differently than your mind is naturally inclined.

Mastering it takes a focus and concentration.

The fact that it’s a free game definitely also adds to its appeal–anyone can download it to try it out risk-free. However, as mentioned previously, the visual appeal of Color Dash! is somewhat lacking; the graphics are much less exciting than those of many other quick-thinking apps on the market today.

We expect this game to improve over time with more appealing graphics and a much improved user-friendly navigational system.

Be Master of the Universe with Lonely Sun

LONELY SUN – Be Gravity’s Guiding Hand

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Lonely Sun is an exciting and innovative game that challenges players to be the “guiding hand of gravity” and bring together an entire solar system.

Sold for under $3 from the iTunes Store, this game has a fascinatingly unique storyline.

Features:

Lonely Sun–Be Gravity’s Guiding Hand, by Rinikulous Games Corp, is a game whose storyline is somewhat summed up in its app name.

Specifically, players within this game are tasked with the job of bringing together a solar system around the “lonely sun” in order to complete the destiny of the cosmos.

This task is accomplished through multiple levels, each designed to help you bring into the system a unique planet until the entire mission is accomplished. Each of these planets is its own fascinating world as well.

However, the task of being “gravity’s guiding hand” in bringing together these planets is easier said than done, as you must also avoid the dangerous matter flying about in the universe as well.

Overall, while I really enjoyed the concept of Lonely Sun, I do think it would be more of a fulfilling game if there were more checkpoints throughout.

While it’s certainly true that “real life” doesn’t have checkpoints, it’s also true that “real life” isn’t an iOS game.

Appearance and Layout:

Lonely Sun iPhone App Review

Just as the overall storyline concept for Lonely Sun is unique, so are the graphics for this game.

In fact, these uniquely beautiful graphics are among the most impressive features of the game; they provide the player with a design that is both simplistic and hauntingly beautiful all at once.

Although the goal of Lonely Sun might seem overwhelming to some (afterall, arranging a solar system is a bit of a large task), the graphic design of this game certainly helps to make this game a more soothing than tiring one.

The layout of this app is equally well done; even first time players should find navigating through the game to be a relatively simple task.

Value:

As mentioned above, Lonely Sun can be downloaded for $2.79. This is a higher price tag that that of the many free games on the iOS store today, and because of this, many players will likely be deterred from trying out the game in the first place.

However, for players who do decide to give it a chance, they probably won’t be disappointed. The graphics and storyline offered in Lonely Sun are both fresh and exciting.

Still, for players who prefer games with frequent and consistent “checkpoints” throughout, Lonely Sun might not be the best investment.

If there’s one thing we can’t argue about, it’s the fact that our smart phones are definitely intelligent. Their capabilities extend far beyond basic uses such as calls and texting.

Recent improvements to smart assistants like Siri, sometimes it feels like your iPhone acts like a real person.

DataBot Personal Assistant is an awesome and truly fascinating app that allows you to create and train a custom virtual assistant.

It may not be from Apple or Google but make no mistake about it, this personal assistant has tremendous potential and already is a force to be reckoned with.

It has more features than I can count and comes with upgradable modules to enhance your bot to your liking.

Concept and Functionality:

While this certainly isn’t the first personal assistant-type app I’ve seen, it’s certainly the first that includes customization options. DataBot Personal Assistant, by Andrea Testa, walks new users through the basics of the app using an incredibly helpful tutorial that does a great job of showing you exactly what you can do.

DataBot Personal Assistant uses both voice and text to deliver information to you. You can perform tasks such as requesting a joke or information about a famous figure. DataBot Personal Assistant will read back whatever it can find and it will also display read contents in text format just in case you missed what the bot said.

As I mentioned above, you can spend experience points on module upgrades. For example, you can unlock the weather module and have DataBot Personal Assistant read your current weather conditions to you. Experience points are earned by using the app on a regular basis.

In terms of usability, DataBot Personal Assistant is pretty easy to figure out once you explore the app a bit. Menus are very easy to navigate and pretty much everything you need is right at your fingertips.

Covering every single feature of DataBot Personal Assistant proved to be impossible for this review, but there certainly are a few things that really stand out to me.

For example, earning experience points is almost effortless and you don’t have to jump through hoops in order to get them. The only thing you have to do is interact with DataBot Personal Assistant and use the app.

As you unlock additional modules, you’ll use the app even more. According to the developer, DataBot Personal Assistant is actually capable of learning from you as you chat with it.

If you choose to create an account with the app you can even access and interact with your bot from another device or even your computer.

Value:

DataBot Personal Assistant is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The app is supported by ads that can be disabled by spending experience points or purchasing an XP boost in the game’s store.

Overall, DataBot Personal Assistant is an awesome app that obviously has had a lot of work put into it. It’s not quite ready to replace mainstream assistants like Siri, but it’s incredibly fun to use and it’s cool to watch the bot “grow” as you use it.

There’s also an Android version of the app.

Xotica Helps You Locate and Chat with Singles in Your Area

Whether you’re looking for a short term fling or a long term relationship, you certainly don’t face a lack of options when it comes to online dating.

Xotica is a beautifully designed dating app that makes it easy to locate singles in your area.

Created by BAAANET IT, this social networking app is a pleasure to use and includes a few useful tools to make your search easier than ever.

Concept and Functionality:

One important thing to keep in mind is very few online dating services and apps conduct background checks or other verification procedures to make sure people are who they say they are. Xotica addresses this in a disclaimer that you must accept before you can use the app.

Once you’re in, Xotica gives you a surprising range of options for customizing your personal profile. You have the basics such as who you’re looking for and your preferences, but you can also disclose whether you’re looking for a casual encounter or a serious relationship right off the bat.

This helps eliminate any miscommunication for others who might be viewing your profile because you can set search filters based on these preferences.

In terms of usability, Xotica is very easy to navigate and figure out. All of the options you’ve come to expect, such as contacting, “winking”, or ignoring, are right at your fingertips.

Features:

Xotica iPhone App

The biggest, and perhaps best, feature of Xotica is the realtime proximity alert system. Yes, it sounds a bit more like something out of a spy movie or a video game, but it’s designed to help you locate matches while you’re out and about.

This is a great option for users who aren’t always browsing available matches. It also works for users in big cities who are always on the go.

One drawback to Xotica is this feature (and the app itself) relies heavily on a large user base. Hopefully Xotica becomes popular enough that it catches on like wildfire so users outside of urban areas have a better chance of finding matches.

Value:

Xotica is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. I couldn’t track down any in-app purchases or special features to unlock, which is really good news for users who want a completely free dating app.

Overall, Xotica is an app I highly recommend if you’re in search of a dating app that’s upfront and clear about what is offered. You can use it to match with anyone with any interest, so I highly suggest giving it a try.

Quirkies Evolution Teaches Children About Natural Selection

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Quirkies Evolution is an innovative app that lets kids have fun while they’re learning the concepts of evolution.

Free through the iTunes Store, this app allows children to create their own creatures through mate selection.

Features:

The name of Quirkies Evolution, released by Indiana University, really sums up the app well. Created through Indiana University with the purpose of teaching the basic principles of evolution (like natural selection and recombination and mutation of genes), this app is really aimed at elementary school aged children.

Within Quirkies Evolution, players get the option of “evolving” their own unique creatures through choosing compatible mates; the app also lets you “choose” what traits you’d like your creatures to evolve through an algorithm at the start of the game.

Of course, sometimes different things will happen to your populations that you lack control of; this is meant to be part of the educational experience of the app.

If you do happen to create a population of creatures that you’re particularly proud of, you then have the opportunity to name it and share it with your friends.

The app also features mini-games and various educational video links throughout it to also further drive home the points about evolution that it was created to teach.

Appearance and Layout:

If you’re looking for fun, “quirky” characters, then Quirkies Evolution is a great app. Its graphics are pretty simple; detailed drawings are not the base for the characters within this game. However, the creatures created within the app are all unique, with enough distinguishing features to have absolutely no problem telling them apart.

Additionally, for an app that has a lot of “add-in” features (mostly different educational resources), the layout of Quirkies Evolution is impressively clean and simple.

Elementary school aged students should have no difficulty with navigating through the different features of this app.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Quirkies Evolution is a free app. It has no ads, no IAPs and strong educational merit. Plus, it’s easy for elementary-aged school children to get the hang of very quickly.

There are a good number of educational videos provided throughout the app as well. However, Quirkies Evolution probably has a relatively slim target audience.

Some of the educational points might be viewed as too complicated for younger audiences, and at the same time middle schoolers may find this app to be too simplistic/not difficult enough to be entertaining for any significant period of time.

For its target audience, though, this app does offer a fun storyline and entertaining graphics.
