When we first found out about 7-Eleven Fuel App from 7-Eleven Stores we thought that it was a great idea.

7-Eleven Fuel is a great app for Aussies to find the best local price of fuel and lock it in at their 7-Eleven fuel store.

While we do like the overall functionality and features of this utility, there areas where it could be improved.

From the perspective of someone who just wants to get the best price of fuel, this app is lacking because it works only with their brand and their gas stations.

Concept and Idea

As for the app itself, the concept of the app is quite interesting and very well-thought.

Assuming you do prefer to patronize 7-Eleven, this app offers great value to its customers, and of course, it’s great for the company because it creates brand loyalty and it is a great way to attract new customers.

The idea is that the customers save money with reserving or locking the prices of the fuel. If there is a change in the price and that price is above the locked price they will not pay that price, but the locked one.

However, the great thing is that if the price get’s lower then the locked price, they will pay the lower price. So, the customer will always benefit. The is where the app shines and presumably gets drivers in Australia to use 7-Eleven Fuel stores more often.

Features and How to Use it

7-Eleven Fuel iPhone App

7-Eleven Fuel iPhone App

Everything that you need is tailored in 4 steps. First you need to choose the fuel type, then you need to find your best local fuel price, get the card and top it up and as final step you need to lock it in.

Functionality and UI

Although the concept is good on paper, there are several flaws in reality. First of all, it appears that you need to use a credit card to lock in the price. If you don’t have a credit card or prefer to use cash you’re out of luck. On top of that the app only works with Visa or Master Card.

Another drawback is that you can use only one lock in. If you have multiple vehicles this can be frustrating. Also, you can’t put the exact amount of money as input.

The user interface is fair but could be improved to be simpler to use. Things could be better organized and arranged in an easier way. It takes a bit get the hang of how this app works.

Final Thoughts

This is a great idea and a great concept that many other gas stations around the world will no doubt implement.

We’d like to see the developers work on improving the overall user experience and add some features, such as accommodating multiple vehicles and letting folks pay with cash. This could help families to save money, especially the ones that heavily depend on vehicle transport.

If Your Mac is Lost or Stolen Track My Mac is Your Best Friend

Track My Mac iPhone App

Track My Mac iPhone App

When the unthinkable happens and you realize your Mac is not where is should be, you don’t have to panic if you’re prepared.

Track My Mac is the ideal solution for anyone who values their MacBook, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air.

Features:

Track My Mac from MacKeeper developers and Kromtech Alliance Corp., goes well beyond the capabilities of the standard “Find My Mac” from Apple. Sure that functionality works, but this is a leap beyond.

Setting it up is a trivial exercise; you download the app to your iPhone and download the Mac application from MacKeeper which includes a built-in Anti-Theft tool.

Once you’ve done that you simply authorize your Track My Mac, turn on the Location Tracker and set up the lock screen. We do want to point out though that the complete process also requires you to go to the Anti-Theft tab in MacKeeper and click “Install Anti-Theft” on its Welcome Screen.

Track My Mac iPhone App

At this point you’re good to go and you will be able to see where your Mac was last located (it’s up-to-date location) and, if necessary, waste no time in reporting your Mac as stolen directly from your iPhone, and protect your Mac from unauthorized access attempts.

Functionality:

An app like this cannot be a “sometimes” app, it needs to work reliably and consistently. In fact, in our extensive testing we found this app to be just that; reliable and consistent.

We were very impressed with the app’s ability to generate its Anti-Theft Location Report along with an iSight photo of whoever is directly in front of the Mac’s camera (presumably the thief) and send it directly to your iPhone.

Furthermore, in the event that someone is trying to gain access to your precious Mac when the screen is locked without knowing the password, when they enter an incorrect password you will receive a Lock Screen Location Report with an iSight photo of the intruder directly to your iPhone.

Overall Value:

We wish this app could somehow get the Mac to a FedEx box and ship it back to you but we’re still impressed with it. It’s an extremely easy-to-use app and does exactly what it says it will. We found it to be a step above the facility provided by Apple and well worth the minimal effort required to add it to your devices.

Plus, the fact that you can use it with an unlimited number of Macs makes it incredibly useful in any type of group, business, or school situation.

Do we wish this app had a PC counterpart? Oh yeah, we do. Afterall there are some weirdos out there who use an iPhone with a PC (can you believe it?).

But seriously, for anyone who has shelled out their hard earned bucks for a MacBook, you would be well served to use Track My Mac.

Test Your Skills with WordSwish

WordSwish promises to challenge word puzzle enthusiasts. Featuring cleverly created challenges, this app by Jorgen Wede is a great addition to the library of anyone who loves a good mind-bending game.

Features:

The name of this app provides an accurate description of its gameplay. Players in WordSwish are given game boards of letters and are challenged to find the words hidden in each of those gameboards; once found, letters are connected into words via a “swishing” action with your fingers.

Hints for the categories of the words that you’re looking for are provided in each level, and the entry levels of WordSwish are created simple enough to make it very easy to get the hang of the app.

The number of letters per word is also provided, and each level always has more than one word hidden in it. This inclusion of multiple words certainly adds to the appeal and challenge of WordSwish.

Levels are unlocked sequentially as you successfully complete challenges, and your in-game score rises with your expertise.

Appearance and Layout:

While the challenges in the gameplay of WordSwish are impressive (particularly as you get further into the game), the graphics of the app are a bit lacking. The game screen is simple and clean enough, but the levels menu seem a bit cluttered.

The app didn’t translate very well onto the larger screen of a full iPad. There were no problems with the graphics resolution on smaller iOS screens, but things seemed a little blurry on the tablet. All items were still readable, but this app is best played on smaller devices.

Value:

WordSwish is a fun and unique game. Its level of difficulty varies greatly, with the beginning levels seeming almost too elementary at times. This ease will probably attract more players to this app than it will turn away; WordSwish may ease you in but it isn’t long until you’re being challenged. 

It’s a free app, with optional in-app purchases for hints in levels if you find yourself stuck at any particular spot. However, the in-app categorical hints (which also show you how many letters a word is) are likely more than enough for most players.

WordSwish is a terrific puzzle app. Offered for free and is an incredible value for word-lovers.

No matter how old you are, chances are you’re afraid of something. Whether it’s your boss, colorful clowns, or spiders, your fears can sometimes get the better of you.

What if there was a way to take out your aggression and face your fears from the comfort of your chair?

I Hate You is a brand-new game by Dmitriy Melnichuk that lets you commandeer a vehicle and literally face your fears head-on, and run them over.

I Hate You is definitely an interesting and engaging game that’s different than anything you’ve played and offers quite a bit of comedic appeal.

Concept and Gameplay:

It’s always a good thing when I get to try out games that are totally off the wall; it keeps things fresh and entertaining. As you can probably imagine, I Hate You fits that bill and is a game that took me a little time to figure out, but has led to quite a few maniacal laughs.

Finding your way around the game menu is tricky at first, but the developers of I Hate You did a pretty good job of providing a helpful overview of button locations and controls.

I Hate You iPhone Game

The controls are pretty straightforward and controlling your car is as easy as tapping on the left or right side of your screen. Other than that, you don’t have to do much except steer straight for your enemies.

Graphics are surprisingly sharp and detailed. You won’t see anything too over the top, but I Hate You isn’t exactly an eyesore either. The environment is pretty dynamic and colorful, meaning you shouldn’t lose interest in the game too quickly.

Features:

One thing that surprised me about I Hate You is the fact that it’s very customizable. The number of fears you can choose from is pretty impressive; I counted 10 to unlock and I’m sure more will be added in later updates.

Fears and cars can be unlocked using coins that are earned by completing mission objectives while playing the game.

I was caught off-guard when I Hate You asked for access to my device’s location while playing the game. I’m not sure what the game would use location data for, but I denied location access and didn’t notice any adverse effects during gameplay.

Value:

I Hate You is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The only in-app purchases are for currency packs to buy fears and cars, but you can earn coins by playing.

Overall, I Hate You is a pretty amusing game that’s sure to offer a few good hours of entertainment.

It’s fun to unlock fears and cars, and you can mix-and-match the two for even more laughs.

Challenge Your Math Skills with 102030

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

102030 is not just “original and addictive” but it also features a simple concept and helps your math skills too.

Features:

As suggested by its name, 102030, by Li Yinjian, is definitely a fresh idea in the app store and is a game where numbers matter.

Specifically, players in this challenging app are given the task of adding up game pieces to equal values of “10,” “20,” or “30.”

However, just being clever with your mathematical strategies isn’t enough to dominate in this game. Instead, in-app “bombs” get in the way of your matchups, and it’s up to you to carefully plan the timing and location of your game pieces in order to successfully rack up high scores.

This app features both “endless” and “challenge” variations, with optional signing in to your iTunes game center account to compete for tops scores if you’d like.

As a whole, we found this innovative game to be just as fresh and fun as promised. It is a simple concept, but it definitely takes awhile to get the hang of. In-app instructions are decently clear, but there is still a learning curve when first starting out.

Appearance and Layout:

Just as 102030 has a pretty simplistic concept of gameplay, the artwork within the app is very simple as well. Things are kept to a minimum; during games most of your games pieces take up the majority of your screen, with a small portion dedicated to showing scores.

With “ball and stick” game pieces, however, detailed designs really aren’t needed; the simplicity of the graphics matches perfectly with the overall feeling of the app.

Getting around the app is easy to do as well; a home screen shows you a few navigational options to get you oriented when first starting out.

Value:

102030 is a free app. It features simple graphics and fun gameplay, and while it might take new players a bit of time to really get the hang of, it’s definitely a game that will delight anyone who loves a good multi-layered challenge.

We had a few instances where the app crashed on me, but as a whole, 102030 ran very smoothly with minimal problems. For a free game, it’s definitely worth at least trying out.

Weatherbirds is an awesome weather app that makes it easy to see hyperlocal weather reports and submit your own observations.

It’s a great lightweight app that’s sure to be a welcome addition to anyone’s weather app collection.

Concept and Functionality:

The first thing I noticed about Weatherbirds, by Istvan Sipos, was the interface. It seemed a little brighter than many popular weather apps available, and the layout is very organized.

Personally I really like the animations and I found that they add to the overall positive atmosphere of the app.

Weatherbirds gives you the option of being a passive or active user. What I mean by this is you can choose to use the app as your primary source of weather information as a consumer, but you can go a step further and submit your own observations to the community.

You’ll need to create an account to do this, but once you have one set up it’s very easy to submit a report.

Weatherbirds gives you the chance to be as detailed or as vague as you like and covers weather conditions such as cloudiness and precipitation, as well as the opportunity to add a description or photo to your report.

When it comes to weather accuracy, I found that Weatherbirds is pretty spot on with conditions. Weather data is sourced from openweathermap.org, which is a very reputable site.

Even with the implementation of crowdsourced weather reports, Weatherbirds has plenty of other great features for users to enjoy. This includes weather forecasts and a built-in weather handbook for depicting various weather conditions and reporting them accordingly.

One feature I found to be missing is the ability to incorporate the iPhone’s built-in barometer for weather reports.

Naturally this feature would be limited only to those iPhone’s with a barometer, but you really can tell quite a bit about the weather just by reading the barometer.

Value:

Weatherbirds is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

There are ads at the bottom of the screen which can be removed via in-app purchase for $1.99, which isn’t a terrible price. However, all features in Weatherbirds are free from the start and the pro upgrade only disables ads.

Overall, Weatherbirds is a great weather app that’s perfect for passive and active weather-minded people.

The bottom line is that Weatherbirds is lightweight, very easy to use, and it’ll be an even more awesome source of weather information if it gains popularity and a large user base.
