 Learn About Math the Fun Way With Dexteria Dots

Reviewed by Avery W. Krouse

Dexteria Dots – Get in Touch with Math, from BinaryLabs, Inc., is a simple mathematics puzzle game which is designed for younger players but I found it to hold a remarkable amount of challenge for me as an adult as well.

The concept of the game is to create “dots” by adding or subtracting circles together, each of which have a numerical value ranging from 1-10. By dragging two “three dots” together, you get a “six dot” for example.

You can also split dots in half by slicing them with your finger or break them down into “one dots” with a tap.

What I Liked

The gameplay is simple but offers varying levels of complexity for different age ranges and skill levels. At the most basic level, each dot is colored, numbered, sized, and highlighted with smaller internal pips to match the value of the dot itself, akin to a die face but circular.

Each progressive skill level, however, removes one of these visual markers until at the highest difficulty, you are relying on size alone to determine the right combinations.

The visuals are smooth and clean, taking notes from the iOS 7 style, and each dot is actually given a personality with little sound effects when you’ve created the correct number, which adds a bit of fun and variety.

Gameplay mechanics are mostly simple and fluid – drag, drop, tap, and slice all behaves exactly as you might expect and there is a brief help page before you begin a new game that reminds you of what each action does.

There are three game modes that ask you to either add dots together, subtract dots to reach a target, or do a combination of both, though in practice I found myself using both addition and subtraction no matter what mode I was in.

What I Didn’t Like

While the game didn’t exactly need it, I felt as if some simple background music would help maintain my interest. The sound effects were cute but after a while, I muted the game out of repetition.

I wouldn’t say the game would hold my interest for a very long time, but it is a simple puzzle game after all, is intended for children, and it isn’t necessarily designed to be a 20 hour experience. There was a little bit of a lag and precision issue in instances where there were dozens of smaller dots on the screen but nothing that ultimately got in my way.

Overall, I really enjoyed this game and I believe it may be marketed to younger players but teens and adults will enjoy it just as much.

Review by Adam Itkoff

For those that love selfies and busting out the camera at all available opportunities, Time Machine Burst Camera, from Studio Voltz LLC, is going to be a smashing success and addition to your repertoire.

This highly unique camera app emphasizes a “burst back in time” feature, by taking a dizzying amount of photos in a split second.

Where as your typical camera would have you wait to get the perfect shot, this one takes a single click to fire away a dozen or so shots. This lets you choose frame by frame, and ultimately pick out your favorite shot.

In essence, you’re more likely to find a favorite frame by using this app, and it proves its price tag is worth its weight by providing a valuable and innovative service.

The app comes out in full-swing, bursting with features. It has an “Auto-Save” feature, several different filters and picture qualities to choose from, LED lighting for dark photo settings and more.

You can, most importantly, choose your “Burst Speed”, which will determine how many photos you take with a single click of a button.

Choose either eight or fifteen photos to be taken at a time by adjusting the burst speed, and then share instantly via in-app Social Media sharing.

This app is interesting to say the least. Photographers will get a quick kick out of it, and I think that photo fanatics from around the globe will have a go.

If the app offered more filters and effects, say a time-lapse feature and color saturation options, then the app might even offer more to its users.

Additionally, this app could team up with Instagram or another photo-centric app to get users sharing more habitually and playing games with the added functionality.

In general, the app is sleek, clean and runs as tight as a drum. We’ve got to give the developers significant accolades for this handy app.

This app delivers something that other apps do not, and gives it to you for just short under three bucks.

If you don’t use your camera, you won’t need this one. But if you love taking photos, you’ll love this app as well. Five stars for sure.

Some of us are Social Media fanatics. Others are more into gaming. And others still are huge into visuals, including photo and video.

For those of the later persuasion, Time Machine Video, from Studio Voltz LLC, is going to be just what you’re looking for. Time Machine Video is a highly unique little video app that allows you to “go back in time” to get the exact clip you want.

You can back track in time from 0 to 60 seconds, and this emphasizes the app’s usefulness when capturing the present, but also what just occurred in front of the lens as well.

You can even trim the video and commit to in-app editing in order to refine your footage. All in all, this is a new spin on video recording and puts the improved lens on your iPhone 5 to good use.

The app itself allows you to choose from two different picture qualities, share instantly via Social Media (Facebook, Twitter and YouTube of course), and even record in the night time.

You can shake your phone to start the recording, and recording will then stop after thirty seconds of filming. The app as a whole comes with a wide variety of tools to experiment with once you’re in the app, and sets itself apart by emphasizing the time-lapse feature.

The app works well and holds up both with still footage or action shots. One glaring point is the format of the app. This could use a touch-up, as the current template emulates an 1980’s clunky analog camera and doesn’t really seem to fit with the motif of the app.

The app still downloads quickly, and packs a punch.

If you’ve got a huge arsenal of video apps in your pocket, you may want to add this one to the roster. It includes enough new and innovative features to keep things exciting, and simply does things that your “record button” can’t keep up with.

Is it worth each penny in it’s $2.99, price tag? Well, it makes a good attempt. At the end of the day, you’ll need to be the judge by getting some killer shots, and telling us if they turned out worthwhile.

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Shadow Fight 2, from Nekki, represents everything we love about iOS gaming: It’s got the free price tag, the excellent graphics, the willingness to be silly, and more than enough action-packed gameplay to keep us coming back time and time again.

In fact, we haven’t had quite as much fun playing any other app as we have playing Shadow Fight 2.

And if you’re looking for a punch-studded reason to pick up your iPhone and sit for a while, you’ll find our whole review of the title below. Starting with:

Shadow Fight 2 represents the sequel to the original Shadow Fight title, and though we are not strict fanboys of the series, we’re reconsidering that position.

The game has you splitting your time between RPG elements like skill trees and weapons upgrades and more fashionable Mortal Kombat style fighting matches. 

In the latter, you’ll use a directional pad on the left side of the screen to send your shadowy protagonist hurtling about the arena. On the right side you’ll find two buttons. One is for your hands, and the other controls your feet. You will mash both of these a lot. Of that, young grasshopper, you can be certain. 

By mashing, flinging and stomping your way through matches, you’ll start to defeat opponents. And after every victory, you’ll earn money and skill points to spend on rewarding your character with some new digs. After a while, you’ll be rocking whole different levels of gear, combat moves, and combo boosters. And let us be the first to say that this is all extremely engaging. 

As it turns out, one of the few things combat games benefit the most from is an RPG skill tree. We can’t get over how well these work together, and the results are simply stunning.

It also helps Shadow Fight 2’s case that it looks so damn good!

The fighting animations are easily the best we have ever seen on the iPhone, and they even give some of the game’s console cousins a run for their money. Not only that, but the artwork (from back to front) is simply killer. 

Here you’ll find luscious environments, a wealth of potential skills to pick from, cleverly detailed characters, and even a pretty good story. Obviously the plot takes a logical backseat, but hey—with this fine of a production, we’re not arguing.

Shadow Fight 2 is rocking the freemium payment model, meaning it’s completely free to download today, but you may eventually decide to invest in some in-app purchases. However, no matter what level you decide to go with, you’ll easily get your money’s worth out of the game.

It’s unbelievably fun, endlessly rewarding, and one of our new found favorites on any gaming platform. 

Shadow Fight 2 is a perfect application, and gets a perfect score.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Smartgroschen, by Galena s.p. z o.o., is an app that provides users with an easy way to communicate with friends and family members around the world. Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app can be used to call, text, and send videos or photos.

Features: star Make Cheap Calls with Smartgroschenstar Make Cheap Calls with Smartgroschenstar Make Cheap Calls with Smartgroschenstar Make Cheap Calls with Smartgroschenemptystar Make Cheap Calls with Smartgroschen

Smartgroschen – Free Calls and Messages, Cheap Phone Calls is an app who’s title really sums up its features. International communication is the primary purpose of Smartgroschen, and this app seeks to fulfill this purpose by providing users with an easy to use, free, international messaging system.

Smartgrochen’s messaging system currently offers a full library of emoticons; this messaging system can be used to send traditional text messages, as well as photos and video clips if desired.

Of course, no international communication app would be complete without an actual “phone” calling option, and Smartgroschen offers this as well. International phone calls to real phone numbers can be made easily through the app over wifi or 3G, so you don’t need to use your provider’s calling minutes.

This app provides users with a very clear voice transmission and receiving service and the price per call for this feature depends on the country one is calling.

All phone calls can be carried out through wireless internet services alone so no actual phone data plan is required prior to making use of Smartgroschen.

Overall, I found that the app seemed to operate fairly smoothly. However, bear in mind that the quality of your call will be dependent on the speed of your internet service. A slow wifi connection would definitely affect the quality of any phone call made through the app.

This app features a clean, easy to navigate layout which is definitely appreciated for an app with a purpose as practical as calling and receiving messages. The terms and conditions of the use of the services of Smartgroschen are clearly laid out, as well as the usage fees per country.

Purchasing credits within the app is easy to accomplish, and setting up your initial account does not take too much time at all.

Since Smartgroschen is an app designed for an international audience, all usage fees are currently listed in Euros, and while this might be a bit confusing for customers from countries not already familiar with the Euro, finding currency conversions online should not prove too difficult either.

The graphics of Smartgroschen are relatively minimalistic, as is the app’s clean logo design. Although some of the in-app typography appears pretty small on the screen of an iPhone, it is still definitely legible.

Smartgroschen is a free app with some very useful texting and chat features, such as delivery confirmation and push notifications. You can also send voicemails that are sent as MP3 files to your contact’s email address.

Use of all the services available through the app, however, are not actually free. First-time users of the app are given a bit of in-app credit that they can use towards calls, but constantly using the app will render its cost anything but free.

Of course, at the same time, the fees for using Smartgroschen are still typically lower than fees for international calls through some cell service providers. If you need to call an international landline Smartgroschen is an excellent option.

For pure VoIP calling, users of the same app can talk and chat free of charge.

Rise Wars, developed by Anibal Leon, brings the strategic game of Risk to iPhone and iPad. Whether you’re a fan of strategy games or you’re looking to try something new, Rise Wars is definitely a game that’s worth checking out.

Concept and Gameplay: star Build Your Army and Conquer the World in Rise Warsstar Build Your Army and Conquer the World in Rise Warsstar Build Your Army and Conquer the World in Rise Warsstar Build Your Army and Conquer the World in Rise Warsstar Build Your Army and Conquer the World in Rise Wars

To be honest, I’ve never been a fan of Risk and other similar strategy games. However, Rise Wars immediately intrigued me. The layout of the game is very easy to navigate and the sheer number of features and mechanics will definitely appeal to iOS users who enjoy complex games.

To begin playing Rise Wars, you have to choose whether you want to play a local game against the computer and/or friends, or an online game that will pit you against players from around the world. Next, choose the color that you want to represent your territories.

All local players must do this, as well. Next you can customize various aspects of your map, such as dice mechanics, origin, map layout, and fog. Once everything is all set, tap the Go! button and get ready to conquer the world.

It might take a little while to get into the rhythm if you’re not familiar with Risk, but Rise Wars is easy enough to learn. Everything is turn-based, so you have plenty of time to think out your strategy. From moving your army around the map to conquering neighboring countries and strengthening your forces, you have control over pretty much everything.

Rise Wars includes a ton of features that make gameplay even more enjoyable and exciting. For example, you can choose from a variety of maps to conquer.

There are even unique maps like Tamriel (from The Elder Scrolls game series) to Pangaea. The game’s developers are planning on allowing users to submit their own maps for inclusion in Risk Wars, as well.

Also, there are a total of 45 achievements which users can earn while playing Rise Wars. From achieving a particular win percentage to playing for a certain amount of time or number of games, I really do like how much variety there is to be achievements.

However, Rise Wars is not Game Center enabled, so all achievements that are earned are local. I’d like to see Game Center integration added in the future, as it makes challenging friends a bit easier.
