iFile Browser by Beleela is an all-in-one file management app that not only simplifies organizing all of your files into one convenient location but also provides a range of functions that you won’t want to be without.

Features:

Just as its name indicates, iFile Browser makes it easier than ever before to organize any and all files that you might have stored on your iOS devices.

Files stored on the cloud can also be imported to the app, allowing for even more ease in organization. However, iFile Browser provides users with more than just a simple all-in-one file management tool. Instead, this app is also designed to be optimal for highlighting and annotating texts, as well as doing basic edits to photo files as well.

Other features of the app also include the ability to print wirelessly (via a Bluetooth connection) and to compress or decompress files as needed.

First-time users are treated to a free 30-day trial, and I found that using the promoted features on the app really was just as simple as promised.

Students and business users alike will probably find the all-inclusiveness of iFile Browser to be impressive, particularly the ease in annotating and organizing files.

Appearance and Layout:

The design of iFile Browser is absolutely ideal for an app of its type.

Even though this app is a powerful tool offering an impressive range of functions, the app never feels too cluttered or crowded at any time.

Instead, a sleek, relatively minimalistic layout keeps screens feeling clean and organized within the app.

Additionally, navigating through iFile Browser is wonderfully simple and fairly intuitive, and a short series of introductory slides provides new users with helpful information as well.

Value:

As mentioned previously, iFile Browser is currently available for a free 30-day trial through the iTunes Store.

However, it appears that in-app purchases must be made in order to continue to use its various features. For instance, users can choose between purchasing a one-year subscription for a fee of about $30 or purchasing individual features of the app for around $1-$6, depending on the feature.

This relatively pricey subscription fee not only put iFile Browser towards the higher priced end of iOS apps, but the fact that the subscription would have to be renewed every year in order to enjoy continued use of the app would definitely frustrate some potential users.

Overall, while iFile Browser is a good, all-in-one app, you’ll have to decide it provides you with enough functionality to warrant the price.

Boing Hop Boing Is an Addicting and Enjoyable iOS Game

Boing Hop Boing
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

One of my favorite things about reviewing iPhone and iPad games is that I get to see brand-new releases that break new ground and are fun to play.

Drippy Cat Software Limited has released a new universal title that is just that.

Boing Hop Boing is similar to Doodle Jump but takes it to the next level offering an unusual mechanic, more scenery and engaging variety.

Concept and Gameplay:

Boing Hop Boing is a platform game at heart, but there are a few twists that make the game unlike anything I’ve seen in the past.

In order to play, you have to tilt your device to either the left of the right to move your bouncing character around the screen. The more you tilt the faster it goes, much like Doodle Jump, and get an extra hop from tapping the yellow bounce button.

Your goal is to complete levels by navigating your way through the map and reaching the end.

Along the way, Boing Hop Boing throws you a few curveballs in the form of obstacles and enemies such as pesky animals and insects.

There are even moving platforms you have to jump onto, as well as moving obstacles you have to avoid. Boing Hop Boing definitely isn’t an easy game to play, but it doesn’t take long to get used to the controls, either.

Also, your character is equipped with a peashooter, that you fire with the green button, to help you defeat critters that might be in his way, as well as an ability that puts a little extra bounce in his step.

This is great for reaching higher plateaus or jumping over obstacles. Be careful not to hit anything while navigating your way through levels, though, because you only have five lives per level. Occasionally you’ll pick up an extra life while playing, but this isn’t always the case.

Features:

Boing Hop Boing includes four different themes and gameplay modes for players to enjoy. From normal/casual levels to avoiding rising water and trying to complete a speed challenge,

I really like the fact that the game offers quite a bit of variety. This is pretty much the only way to keep players from becoming bored with Boing Hop Boing.

Another great feature of Boing Hop Boing is character customization. Players can customize the color of their character’s clothes and skin on the main screen of the game.

To do this, tap on the colored leaves that surround the character. You can tell which leaf color correlates to a piece of clothing by looking at the stem and seeing where it points.

Value:

Boing Hop Boing is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 with no ads, no IAPs and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. According to the game’s App Store page, this is a special introductory price that will end once the new level pack is added.

Therefore, I definitely recommend checking out Boing Hop Boing as quickly as possible if you think it’s a game that you’re interested in.

Personally I think it’s a wonderful game that offers a lot to players, especially when it comes to gameplay environment, background music and sound effects, and overall enjoyment.

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

Think Shapes, from SoftUps, LLC, is a well-designed challenging puzzle game that is great fun for any fan of interesting puzzles.

Features

It is not your run-of-the-mill shape puzzler where you have to fit shapes together. This game provides you with a fixed set of images that are transparent in some areas and opaque in others. You then have to decide which ones you need to stack in order to recreate your “goal” image. Simple? Not so fast…

The operation of the game is not hard, but with all the options it’s nice that a tutorial is provided.

It walks you though all the functional icons on the screen by putting a spotlight on each one as it tells you what it does. A nice touch.

As you play you hear a relaxing “zen like” melody that helps to set the atmosphere that this is a thinking game, not a frenetic twitch game.

Think Shapes iPhone Game

Think Shapes iPhone Game

If you succeed you receive a score and unlock the next puzzle. If you don’t you use up one of your lives (max of 5) and you can try again, this time using hints.

Concept and Functionality

As you might expect the goal images start off easy and get more and more difficult.

You have to not only figure out which ones you need to combine to make the final image, you also have to decide what order to layer them, whether or not they need to be rotated, and which ones need to be what color.

At the start of play you are shown the goal image and how many shapes need to be combined for the final image and how many moves you have.

You then have to choose from the 14 shapes on the right, which ones to use, in what order and which of the 10 colors each layer should be.

We found this game to be a unique concept that is a delight to play. We especially like how the puzzles build up gradually in complexity.

This serves to build your confidence and also reinforce your understanding of how to play it, with no challenge being frustratingly impossible.

Value

With over 270 levels available, and no in-app purchases, this game is a terrific value. Even though there are ads along the bottom, they are not intrusive and, at least while we were playing it, no full screen ads that interrupt your play and force you to ‘x’ out of them.

You can just play straight away, or you can log in using your Facebook account. If you opt for the latter you can play against your friends and get your competitive juices flowing.

So, if your brain needs a good workout, get it in shape with Think Shapes!

OfficeSuite Free Offers Desktop-Like Functionality for iOS

OfficeSuite Free – for Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint & PDF documents editing
iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Whether you use your iPhone and/or your iPad to view documents on the go or you create and edit projects on the go, you need to have the right office app for the job.

OfficeSuite Free is an amazing feature-rich free app that allows users to quickly and easily view, edit, and create Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheet, and much more.

Developed by Mobile Systems, this free app is perfect for casual and serious users alike.

Concept and Functionality:

One of the first things I look for in an office suite app is ease of use. After all, if you have to spend a ton of time finding your way around and figuring out where to find what, you’re probably not going to get a lot done.

OfficeSuite Free immediately impressed me with a clean layout that’s not littered with needless and clunky menus, options, and other fluff.

As I mentioned before, OfficeSuite Free allows users to create and edit Word, PowerPoint, and Excel documents, as well as view PDFs and view and edit RTF and CSV docs.

To begin, I recommend connecting any cloud accounts to the app so you can easily access your files. OfficeSuite Free supports iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, and WebDAV.

For creating documents, OfficeSuite Free offers pretty much everything users have come to expect from the Microsoft office product suite. From comprehensive layout options to extensive formatting options, everything seems to be covered.

It’ll likely take new users a bit of time to become acquainted with the location of features, but you’ll be creating and editing documents in no time at all.

OfficeSuite Free includes far too many features to list individually, but one of my favorite features is cloud integration at no additional cost.

This is especially true for iCloud, as it seems like many free office suite apps tend to charge for an upgrade in order to unlock it.

Also, OfficeSuite Free features a familiar desktop-like layout, which is great seeing as many office suite apps try to add their own twist.

The app definitely puts usability and functionality above all else, and it results in an increase in productivity without loss of features.

Value:

OfficeSuite Free is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. While the free version is supported with ads, they’re only shown on the menu screen.

If you’re looking for even more features, OfficeSuite Free offers a full version upgrade for $20. This unlocks the ability to edit PDFs, as well as adds password protection and disables ads, among other features.

The only nit I have with this app, and it’s a relatively small one, is I think it would be best to break down additional features into separate in-app purchases.

For casual users who might just want to disable ads or unlock PDF editing, $20 is a lot to ask.

EZ PZ RPG is the Most Fun and Easiest RPG

EZ PZ RPG
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Developed by R2Game Co., Limited, EZ PZ RPG is the next big thing in mobile role playing games. Available for free through the iTunes Store, this game is fun, challenging and yet incredibly simple to play so it’s ideal for both beginner and experienced gamers alike.

Features:

Just like its name suggests, EZ PZ RPG is designed to be one of the easiest mobile role playing games possible.

Unlike most RPGs that require you to actually be actively playing the game in order to gain loot and experience, this app is created to let you create a character, set him/her into motion, and leave it alone until you want to play the game again.

In the meantime, your character will have been progressing through the game, without any additional help from you at all. EZ PZ RPG currently features three different distinct, playable classes to choose your character from.

An impressive amount of gear/loot is available throughout the game as well, making it easy to advance and accessorize your player.

Fun, quirky writing directs players when they’re on the game, adding further appeal to EZ PZ RPG. However, while this app definitely features an impressive (possibly even overwhelming) amount of content, the overall storyline for the game seemed to be somewhat lacking. Although not a big issue, some dedicated RPG fans might find this deficit to be disappointing.

Appearance and Layout:

EZ PZ RPG iPhone App Review

The graphics of EZ PZ RPG are definitely a highlight of the app. Bright, unique artwork is featured throughout the entire game, making it a very visually pleasing game.

Colors and character composition seem to follow the norms for larger scale RPGs very well, and gamers familiar with other such games will probably be very pleased with what the graphics of this app have to offer.

However, while the graphics of this app are certainly impressive, the overall layout of EZ PZ RPG seems as if it could use some improvement. Specifically, due to the sheer amount of content included within the game, on-screen icons could feel a bit overwhelming at times.

It would be more ideal if players could still access this information and the features provided through these icons without having them always on their screens.

Value:

As mentioned previously, EZ PZ RPG is available for free through the iTunes Store. Because of this the overall value of this app is definitely quite good.

Great graphics keep it visually appealing, and anyone interested in playing an RPG that can run on auto-pilot at times will probably be pleased with it.

As with many games, EZ PZ RPG does offer some in-app purchasing options that let you accelerate your progress, but for those on a budget the good news is that they’re not required to play.

ezEZ PZ RPG requires iOS 5.1.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.  A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

Go From Snack Shack to Lunch Legend in Lunch Truck Tycoon

Lunch Truck Tycoon
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

One of my favorite game genres is simulators, so it’s no surprise that I took a liking to Lunch Truck Tycoon almost immediately.

Developed by Diggidy, Lunch Truck Tycoon is an addicting and fun game for iPhone that takes players on an exciting journey from snack shack to food truck fame.

Concept and Gameplay:

Lunch Truck Tycoon is pretty similar to like-named games such as Lemonade Tycoon. The goal is to build your business from the ground up by providing customers with a great lunch experience.

Over time, you’ll earn enough money to purchase upgrades so you can bring in even more cash.

When you first open Lunch Truck Tycoon, the game takes you through a brief tutorial that gives you a basic overview of the game and all of its functions. The left side of the screen is where players can purchase trucks and upgrades, travel around the island, view the latest news headlines, and restock their truck.

Lunch Truck Tycoon is somewhat of a “set it and forget it” kind of game. What that means is that players have to make sure everything is in order (such as stocking items) prior to taking their turn.

Once their turn has begun and customers purchase food, players can’t make any changes to their truck.

While Lunch Truck Tycoon is pretty similar to other simulator games, I rather like the fact that this one makes you work extra hard in order to unlock additional truck accessories and food.

Leveling up is a gradual process that takes quite a bit of time, so it’s unlikely that players will zip through the game in a matter of hours.

Features:

When it comes to extra features, Lunch Truck Tycoon has all the bases covered.

The game offers plenty of player flexibility, primarily because they’re free to choose where they want to set up shop. Event headlines and special challenges pop up rather frequently, but players aren’t forced to take part in them.

When it comes down to numbers, Lunch Truck Tycoon players can reach level 45, as well as complete and gain content.

There are 30 different events for players to take part in, as well as 15 different competitions in five different locations where they can set up their lunch truck.

Lastly, if you’re a bit impatient, Lunch Truck Tycoon allows you to toggle turn speed via the fast-forward button that’s located at the top right of the screen.

Value:

Lunch Truck Tycoon is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. The game does include ads that pop up occasionally after a turn has completed, but they’re not terribly intrusive.

Players have the option of acquiring cash via in-app purchase, but doing so somewhat defeats the purpose of the game. Also, ads can be disabled for $0.99.

When it comes down to it, Lunch Truck Tycoon is a very addicting simulator game that features plenty of different game elements and room for players to experiment with items and strategies.
