AUTOsist’s Car Maintenance, Gas Log, & Reminder Manager is a well designed intuitive app that takes the difficulty out of maintaining an up-to-date vehicle maintenance log.

Offered for free (with optional for-pay account add-ons), this app works to keep you organized.

Features:

If there ever was an app whose features are summed up in its name, this app would be it.

Car Maintenance, Gas Log, & Reminder Manager leaves no need to guess what this app can do for you, as it’s really all mentioned in its name. Creating a one-car account on this app is free, and the app’s contents are all hosted via a cloudspace compatible with multiple systems (iOS, Android, general internet, etc.) that allows you the convenience of being able to access your info just about anywhere.

The data you decide to input is really all up to your own discretion; while I found the app most practical for keeping track of things like oil changes and tire rotation records, other users might want to upload gas mileage or other more day to day vehicle-related purchases as well.

In addition to providing a single location for all your maintenance records, the app can also be used to send you upkeep reminders, as well as to transfer vehicle data to other app users if wanted.

Records for more than one vehicle can also be stored within the app if needed. However, it should be mentioned that while the app does offer all of these features, the free version is limited in what users are able to access through it.

Perhaps one of the best features of this app is its easy to use layout.

Car Maintenance, Gas Log, & Reminder Manager is promised to simplify your auto record needs, and the easy to navigate design of the app really helps it to deliver on that promise.

Even on my first time using it I found that the design was very intuitive; it’s just a really easy to access, organized storage base for vehicle upkeep information.

The graphics of the app also are a plus; they’re simple, clean, and yet just cheerfully enough colored to keep you feeling like even the mundane task of inputting oil change info isn’t so bad after all.

Value:

As mentioned previously, this is a free app through AUTOsist. However, this free account is somewhat limited compared to what a for-pay account can offer you. Free accounts have limited cloud storage space (which could become an issue if you’re having to choose what info to store or ignore) and can only be used to keep data on one vehicle at a time.

Still, for what’s offered for free, this app definitely offers great value and at a minimum lets you evaluate the app to see if it’s right for you.

The in-app purchases for additional features, however, are certainly on the pricier side (with prices going up to around $20). That said, we would expect owners of multiple vehicles, such as fleet owners, to find these fees well worth it. Individual users, however, may think twice about paying these prices.

What do you do when you know two people are a perfect match? Exchanging phone numbers or social media profiles can work, but there is a way to help your friends connect without facing the sting of rejection.

Spritzr is a very cool app that lets you play matchmaker without going through the complicated process of signing up for a dating site yourself.

Created by Spritzr, this social dating app makes it incredibly easy to help your friends connect with each other.

Concept and Functionality:

Spritzr aims to go beyond exchanging contact information in hopes that two people will try to communicate with each other. It’s an effective tool to allow your friends to investigate match suggestions by learning about a person first.

Perhaps the best part about Spritzr is that you don’t have to be single in order to use the app.

It’s designed for matchmakers, too. If you’re the friend who always says you know two people who are perfect for each other, this is your opportunity to make it happen.

One of the interesting things I discovered about Spritzr is that it almost feels like you’re playing a dating game. This is because matchmakers can earn karma points and actually compete on a leaderboard.

One of the things I really like about Spritzr is that it’s incredibly simple to use. You don’t have to be a dating app wizard in order to navigate it. The layout is fine-tuned to make sure you’re spending as much time as possible browsing matches.

You do, however, have to have a Facebook account in order to login and use the app. Unfortunately this might be a dealbreaker if you’re not a Facebook user.

Value:

Spritzr is available to download from the App Store for free, and you don’t have to pay anything extra for additional services.

Overall, I think Spritzr is a fantastic dating app that revolutionizes the way people connect with each other on a romantic level.

Not only is it designed to help singles, but it allows matchmakers to easily do their thing.

Weather Gods by Meyume Ltd delivers your weather information to your iPhone like never before and is sure to bring out the meteorologist in you.

Features:

Weather Gods is an app featuring just about any weather data you could possibly want, all in a visually appealing and easy-to-use manner.

Specifically, this app provides users with animated, real-time weather prediction information for their regions.

It also features info on moon phases and 24 hour weather charts, as well as international info such as world clocks. The app is best used in an area where you can listen to its sounds (or simply have headphones on hand when using this app); weather-specific sounds keep use of Weather Gods an entertaining experience.

I personally found the historic weather data displayed through the app to be particularly helpful; while weather predictions only project so far into the future, being able to look at past weather trends for a region conveniently provided some insight into what further down into the month looks like.

Although users who want pure data without fun graphics probably won’t be in to what Weather Gods has to offer, consumers who prefer a little more entertainment with their practical applications will surely be fans of this app.

Appearance and Layout:

Meyume Ltd touts this app to have impressive graphics, and I found that Weather Gods certainly lived up to this claim.

While most weather apps stick to minimal graphic details and clutter your screen with random ads, Weather Gods only features weather-related (or season-related) graphical displays.

The interactive layout of this app is also impressive, as it really makes it easy to find the information you’re hunting for quickly (but still through a lovely interface).

Overall, the developers of Weather Gods have done a terrific job with its appearance and layout and it’s probably its strongest feature.

Value:

There is no doubt that Weather Gods is a beautiful app. It makes getting weather updates an exciting, new experience–even if it’s just delivering info that you could easily get other places.

Its graphics are far above those of other weather apps. Still, at $3.99, this is definitely a considerably pricey weather app, limiting its target audience to only those consumers who really truly love to get their weather data regularly.

Of course as usual you get what you pay for. If you’re like many people who just want a quick check to see if it will rain today, most free apps will do the job. However, if you have more of an interest in the different aspects of your weather, Weather Gods is hard to beat.

If worrying over defending planet earth alone has gotten too mundane, then try out Yahub, Inc.‘s Mars Defence for a new challenge.

Free through the iTunes Store, this fun game keeps things fresh.

Features:

For fans of other tower defense games, this is one you have to check out.

Mars Defence is an excellent example of a well-designed, exciting and fun-to-play tower defense game.

Just like its name suggests, your aim in this app is to fend off martian invaders from attacking your mars colony; you do this through building towers and conquering levels, all while unlocking new tools and weapons to help you in your mission.

As a whole this game is wonderfully easy to learn to play; an optional instructional video at the start of the game really breaks down the basic of the app.

Even though your mission throughout the entire game is consistent overall, Mars Defense constantly felt like a fresh challenge as I played it, thanks to the ever changing supply of weapons and invaders as I worked through the levels.

This game brings together all the key aspects of a tower defense game, and does it in a way that makes it fun, exciting and addictive to play. Well done developers!

Trying out a new game can often make you feel pretty lost. Fortunately, this isn’t a problem in Mars Defence.

It’s a really intuitive game layout, so players will waste minimal time learning how to navigate through the app. At the same time, however, the graphic detail of Mars Defense is somewhat lacking.

While it’s understood that this is a free game with pretty basic graphics, it still would be appreciated to have a little more character thrown into the visual display of the game.

Still, the graphics of this app are arguably perfectly functional, and a lack of great detail doesn’t really detract from the overall fun of the game too much.

Value:

As mentioned before, this is a free game, and for that “price” it definitely has a lot to offer.

Mars Defence might not have the most exciting graphics, but other than that it has just about everything you want in a new game: fun storyline, affordable price tag, easy to navigate layout, and helpful instructional tutorial to start off.

The in-app variety makes you really feel like the developers were very intentional in their design of the game. Overall, Mars Defence is a solid addition to your favorite iOS device.

Have Fun Cleaning the Ocean with Bogga Jewel

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Bogga Jewel is the latest installment in the Bogga game series and quite possibly the best one yet.

Aimed for children ages 6+, Bogga Jewel challenges kids to think about keeping their world clean while also playing a game fun and lighthearted.

Features:

Whether your children are ardent fans of the Bogga games series or if Bogga Jewel, from BoggaTap, is an entirely new idea to them, this app is sure to please.

Bogga Jewel uses simple arrow button commands to control your Bogga player as they work to rid the ocean of litter. Successfully pulling up different items leads to unlocking different exciting prizes to collect.

However, even though Bogga Jewel aimed at audiences 6+, there is actually a good bit of variation within the app, allowing for children even a little younger to enjoy it as well.

Specifically, players can choose to focus on successfully using all their different fishing lines to pull in the trash, or they can choose to focus more on using their “treasures” to recycle them into beautiful unique designs of their own crafting, including their own “sticker books.”

Because of this versatility, it’s easy to see Bogga Jewel appealing to little ones of a range of ages.

Appearance and Layout:

Just like the other games in the Bogga series, Bogga Jewel’s graphics are perfect for its target audience.

The characters are friendly and fun, and the colors are appropriately bright. With a target audience at such a relatively young age, the care taken into creating well done graphics for this app is actually pretty impressive and from the results we can say with confidence that no shortcuts were taken.

Getting around Bogga Jewel is equally well done. Being able to read isn’t really a requirement for figuring out how to play and how to navigate through the app. This is key as it means that its target audience can probably play this game with little need to constantly be asking their parents “how-to” questions.

Value:

As listed above, Bogga Jewel is $2.99 through the iTunes Store. At almost $3, this app is certainly one of the pricier games out today (when compared with the many free options available).

However, Bogga Jewel does offer parents the comfort of knowing that their child is playing a “safe” game, one free of any unwanted pop-ups, advertisements, or unexpected in-app purchases.

For this reason alone, many parents might consider the initial investment fee for this app well worth it.

Overall, Bogga Jewel delivers on the promise of a “safe”, fun and entirely child-friendly experience.

Learning a new language can be a daunting task, but only if you don’t use all of the tools available to you.

Hear, Here – Learn English Homophones is a terrific new app that turns learning English homophones into a game.

It allows you to learn how to distinguish between homophones like air and heir, knight and night, and more.

Concept and Functionality:

Hear, Here, a free app by Jorge Negrotti, is a fun matching game that will definitely help you hone your homophone skills. Unlike other educational games that tend to be boring, this helpful app will teach you to associate homophones both audibly and visually.

Perhaps the best thing about Hear, Here is that there isn’t a learning curve. You don’t have to worry about being incredibly proficient in English in order to play the game.

Even if English is your native language, Hear, Here is a great way to practice homophone recognition so you can sharpen your skills. It’s also a great game for kids who are studying homophones.

Features:

No game is complete without achievements or goals. Hear, Here is no exception, and one of the things I really like about the game is that you progressively unlock new words.

There are a total of 300 homophones that you can study. You can even unlock in-game achievements, though it seems that these aren’t integrated with Game Center.

If you’re concerned about forgetting what you’ve learned, Hear, Here includes a very helpful album where you can go back and study homophones you unlocked. You can tap on them in the menu and hear the spoken version of the word, as well as similar sounding words.

Value:

Hear, Here is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. If you happen to find that the app is a helpful learning tool that’s also fun to play, you can optionally unlock an additional 300 words for $1.99.

Personally I think this is a small price to pay for helpful game that makes language learning fun.

I highly recommend giving Hear, Here a try because it’s perfect for both native English speakers as well as those who are learning English as an additional language.
