Invasion: Online War Game is an exciting simulation game that challenges players to use their knowledge of battle strategies in order to conquer the world.

Although the app is currently available for free, a good number of in-app purchases to help you in your conquests are also offered through the iTunes Store.

Features:

Invasion: Online War Game, an app by Tap4Fun, is a play-to-conquer app that’s main premise is just as its name suggests.  

Players within this app are challenged to build their military presence to cover more and more territory, eventually taking over the entire world. Things within Invasion start small–building necessary parts of your first base–but the pace of the game increases after that.

Like most other military-based apps, many of the missions within Invasion are best accomplished with the help of alliances within the game.

Other features of Invasion include options to train up your military in order to improve your chances of victory in battle, as well as to collect intelligence on your enemies prior to invading them.

As a whole, even though there are many other similar apps to Invasion that already have strong followings, this app is still a great addition to the gaming collection of anyone who enjoys a good, competitive, challenging war game.

Appearance and Layout:

Graphics in Invasion are excellent.

The creators of this app made sure to pay attention to details, and this really shows in the appearance of this app.  

The in-game intro to the app is very detailed as well and gives you a good idea of what to expect while playing. First time users are walked through a series of introductory steps that are useful for knowing how to start off your mission-building experience, and these instructions are clear enough to make things feel do-ably simple, even for first time players.

As with most games of its type, the screen of Invasion tends to be pretty cluttered all the time; minimalism really does not have a place in this app.

This cluttered appearance, however, is part of the appeal of game like Invasion, as the “busyness” helps keep the momentum of the app moving at all times.

Value:

As mentioned above, Invasion: Online War Game is a free app. However, as also mentioned before, there are a good number of in-app purchases offered for “diamonds” that help make completing missions much more doable.

Overall, Invasion is a fun game that has a lot to offer its players.

Missions are numerous, keeping the game moving constantly. At the same time, sometimes it feels like making in-app purchases is almost necessary to get things moving faster, and this reduces the overall “value” of a free game somewhat.

Still, Invasion players can expect to enjoy a good number of hours (if not months) of exciting gameplay with this app.

Invasion: Online War Game is also available for Android 3.0+ from Google Play.

invasionqrInvasion: Online War Game requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Going to college can be both an exciting and a terrifying idea, and 4 Year Trip is an app that is designed to help prospective college students find the best college for their needs. Developed by Alisa Armas, this app is currently available for free.

Features:

4 Year Trip is an incredibly useful app for anyone contemplating going to college.

It was created with the sole purpose of aiding students in locating colleges that might be a good match for them.

Students can choose to search for universities by focusing on specific majors/programs offered through the schools or by the location of the school. 4 Year Trip also includes a list of all nearby colleges, based on the location of your iOS device.

These lists include information linking you directly to the university’s website; these websites can be opened directly within the app, without any need for an outside app source.

An especially nice feature is that 4 Year Trip can also be used to create your list of dream colleges, locate upcoming college fairs in your area, and be notified about potential scholarships for you.

To make the college search process more enjoyable, this app provides opportunities to win prizes directly through it as well.

As a whole, 4 Year Trip offers excellent features that high school college and career advisors should definitely inform their students about.

It’s an easy to use app that can make the college search process much easier and less stressful.   

Appearance and Layout:

With an attractive, trendy icon, 4 Year Trip is already visually appealing to its target audience. The in-app layout makes for a very streamlined approach, with each feature conveniently sectioned off into its own subsection.

Creating your own personalized college dream list is easy to do, and getting around the app takes no time at all to figure out.

All in-app graphics are clean and simple, leaving the screen as uncluttered as possible.

Overall, even though the material presented in this app is mostly just text-based, the appearance of 4 Year Trip is still commendable.  

Value:

For the high school student looking for a bit more guidance on how to start off his/her college search, 4 Year Trip is a great free app to add to his/her collection.

The college application process is arguably not very enjoyable, but this app at least makes the college search a bit more fun.

Since it’s offered for free, 4 Year Trip is definitely of great value to its target audience.

While it certainly won’t be an app that you’ll need for years to come, 4 Year Trip is still a great app for its set purpose.

Are You Ready to Bugout? Bugout Bag Creator Prepares You for Anything

Bugout Bag Creator is the perfect app to help you prepare for anything and everything, making it easy to prepare survival kits and Go Bags for just about any situation.

Features:

Having to deal with a disaster is something that most people will probably never have to experience.

However, just because statistically you will probably be fine does not mean that you shouldn’t be prepared just in case.

This is where the Bugout Bag Creator, an app by Storeboughtmilk LLC, comes into the picture.

Designed to provide clear, detailed lists specific to situations (a “Go Bag,” “72-hr Bag,” “Ultimate Bugout Bag,” etc.), app users can feel secure in their emergency bag decisions.

Using the app is very easy to do; bag lists are listed in a drop-down format, making it perfectly doable to put together different factors of your bag at different times if necessary.

Other features of Bugout Bag Creator include the ability to set restock alarms for yourself, create personalized bag plans, and the ability to restore original list contents within the app, even after you have customized lists to your own preferences.

Additionally, in-app links to optional purchasing websites for different suggested items are also included in this app.  

Appearance and Layout:

Even though this isn’t an entertainment app, the developers took the time to make sure the “look & feel” of it is top notch.

We love the stellar appearance and layout of this app.

It’s easy to navigate, and drop-down styling allows bag lists to be as long or short as you’d personally like to view at any one time. All photographs are of high enough quality to look excellent even on larger screens of regularly-sized iPads, and personalizing list options is easily accomplished.  

A few typos throughout the app detract a bit from the appearance (e.g., “hygene”), but other than that no real complaints can be made about how Bugout Bag Creator looks.  

Value:

Bugout Bag Creator currently costs just under $2 and it’s easy-to-use even for someone with little to no knowledge of compiling emergency kits.

The layout makes this app particularly appealing, and the customization abilities offered within Bugout Bag Creator further make it a great option to recommend to friends and family alike.

Being prepared can be the difference between a series of unfortunate events and a complete, full-blown crisis, and this app helps to keep users prepared at all times.

Tribe Lets You Share Private Videos with 10 of Your Closest Friends

Sharing things with your friends via social media is fun, but sometimes you can go a little too far and suffer repercussions. Besides some embarrassment this can also include having your account suspended or even banned.

What if there was a way to share quick private video updates with specific friends without worrying about violating strict terms of service or offending someone?

Tribe is a unique social networking app by Web & Mobile Ltd that allows you to share brief video updates with up to ten of your closest friends and no one else. Never has there been an easier way to communicate with your BFFs without repercussions.

Concept and Functionality: [Rating4.5/5]

Setting up a new account with Tribe is incredibly simple and should only take you a minute. You do have to provide a phone number as a means of security, though, but it’s not shared with anyone else. Once you’ve granted applicable permissions, you’re free to begin adding people to your tribe.

One of the things I like about the app is that Tribe is very simple to use but is incredibly functional at the same time.

Messages between tribe members are shared via 5 second video clips that are cumulative, meaning it only records when you’re pressing on the record button.

If you’re concerned about privacy or video storage, the developers state that videos are not stored on servers. In fact, your previous video is automatically deleted when you upload a new one. This ensures that only your friends see your updates and can’t dig into your history if your phone is ever compromised.

Features:

From notifications to control over your friends, Tribe does offer quite a bit for you and your closest friends. There’s one thing I think that’s missing, though, which is a Facebook-like timeline or wall for friends to post text updates as well as video updates.

This would be perfect for including users who might not be too fond of the video aspect of Tribe but still want to communicate with their friends in an uncensored and unmonitored way.

Value:

Tribe is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There are no in-app purchases to worry about, which is great.

Tribe is definitely a straightforward app that’s geared towards helping close friends connect without worrying about breaking terms of service or offending others. It might not be for everyone because of the video updates, but perhaps a text option can be added in the future to fix this.

Regardless, it’s nice to be able to communicate with friends in a private and secure way.
