Migalolo ocean ebook is a charming and entertaining new iOS book app developed by Siu lui shirley Choi.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, Migalolo tells the story about a young boy, Henry, exploring the ocean through colorful animations and catchy sing-alongs.

Features:

As stated, this app is an illustrated ebook aimed at younger audiences. Specifically, the focus of the story featured in Migalolo is to explain the importance of nature conservation to children.

As such, this app is certainly one that can count as both educational and entertaining. Parents will appreciate the number of illustrations and overall content this ebook provides.

Other than its length, there are several other features of this app that will appeal to young and old audiences alike. For instance, one of the helpful features in the app is the ability to “place” multiple bookmarks throughout the story.

By saving a bookmark, a child could stop the story, then resume the story right where he/ she left off at a later time.

Another well-thought-out feature the developers of Migalolo created was the option to replay different scenes of the story.

This feature is especially useful for a child looking to find his favorite song quickly. In fact, speaking of the songs, the musical material of this app is arguably the best feature of Migalolo.

All the songs are very well written and composed; the music is of high quality for an app of this type.

Appearance and Layout:

Since Migalolo is designed as an illustrated ebook, the graphics are an important part of the app. However, while the drawings themselves have their own colorful style and look fine, the featured in-app “animations” were a bit disappointing.

In some scenes, characters basically slide across the screen. While very young audiences might not might not mind this lack of detailed animation very much, it is a feature that will probably be a bit frustrating to any adults guiding their little ones through the app.

We do appreciate that Migaglolo is an app that is easy to navigate, making it easy for children to use on their own if desired.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Migalolo ocean ebook is free to download from the iTunes App Store.

As a whole, if you’re looking for an app to keep a child busy, this will likely do the trick. The app is loaded with a lot of scenes and many songs for children to learn and sing along to while watching the videos.

We suggest downloading it using wifi since it is a bit of a larger app, but once you have it it’s a great way to carry along a “book” when you’re on the go.

Turbcast Informs and Calms Anxious Air Travelers

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

If you have to get somewhere in a relatively short period of time, flying is usually the way to go. However, it’s not everyone’s favorite method of travel, and usually one of the fears travelers experience is turbulence.

While modern commercial aircraft are build to withstand extreme turbulence, that doesn’t mean it’s comfortable to experience.

Turbcast is an iPhone app created by aviation professionals to help travelers learn about turbulence and get an estimated forecast quickly and easily.

Developed by Simplus Technologies Group, LLC, Turbcast is a great app for anyone who is a bit nervous about flying.

Concept and Functionality:

Turbcast is designed to provide users with a variety of resources for managing their fear of turbulence. Whether you’re an experienced traveler or you’ve only flown a couple of times, turbulence is something that can frighten anyone.

When you first open Turbcast, you’ll be taken through a few introductory screens that give you an idea as to what the app offers.

It’s primarily a turbulence forecast app, and it uses the same weather data provided to pilots in order to forecast the chance and severity of turbulence.

To use the forecast feature, you’ll need to provide the departure and arrival airport identifier and the departure and arrival time.

Turbcast iPhone App

Turbcast is much more than a turbulence forecast tool. It’s also a resourceful app that aims to educate travelers about turbulence and how to remedy anxiety.

Users can watch a short video about turbulence and read fact about the causes of it and how to cope with it when it occurs during a flight.

Personally I really like the idea of a turbulence forecast tool like Turbcast. Turbulence is usually something travelers don’t think of until they’re in the air, and being able to know what might occur will help to avoid surprises.

The developers have done an excellent job with the layout of the app, making sure it’s easy to navigate. After all, if you’re using it at the last minute you don’t want the app to add to your anxiety.

Features:

Turbcast includes a few useful features for users, such as the aforementioned facts page and video. One thing I noticed about the facts page is that even though it’s incredibly detailed and informative, it’s a bit tough to read due to small font and an animated background.

There’s a third media tool for anxious travelers to use, which is the panic button. This takes users to a short audio clip that addresses the fact that something has frightened the traveler, and the clip aims to help the user assess the situation and remedy it accordingly.

This is definitely a great feature in Turbcast, and I’m sure it’s one that travelers will utilize often.

Value:

Turbcast is available to download from the App Store for $1.99 and is designed for iPhone.

While the price might seem a little high, it’s a small cost for piece of mind if you’re an anxious traveler.

If you’re like me, you have a tendency to miss out on learning new things simply because you feel like there just isn’t enough time in the day to sit and read. Unfortunately this means you could be missing out on a new hobby or learning something fun and exciting.

NoteStream is an incredible app that revolutionizes the way you discover and learn new information, one note at a time.

Developed by NoteStream, Inc., this impressive app is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.

Concept and Functionality:

The goal of NoteStream is to take large amounts of information on a topic and break it down into bite-sized notes that can be read in only a couple of minutes.

While this might sound like a daunting task, the app does a terrific job of delivering information in a way that even the busiest of people can learn something interesting over a short coffee break.

When you first open NoteStream, you’ll be asked to create an account either by email or with Facebook. Once you’re set up, you’re taken to the Explore page, where you can view every topic NoteStream covers.

NoteStream iPhone App

Topics include lifestyle, travel, food, nature, music, and many more. Tapping on one reveals a list of NoteStreams curated by experts in their field so you can trust the information you’re reading.

Notes themselves are very precise and properly formatted to the app and screen, meaning NoteStream is visually appealing and lacks a messy interface or clunky navigation.

Simply swipe your finger left and right to move between notes. Users can easily add NoteStreams to their personal collection, which saves where they left off. It’s also easy to bookmark certain notes in streams for easy access later.

Features:

NoteStream was recently updated to 2.0, which added enhanced notification features so users could easily choose how they want to be notified of new streams released by their favorite authors.

Users can also choose how often they’d like to be notified, which definitely cuts down on noise if you’re subscribed to a bunch of authors.

Also, NoteStream uses a very curated list of authors so users can be certain that they’re receiving accurate information. This definitely impressed me, as similar apps and websites have a tendency to be a “free for all” and anyone can contribute. NoteStream also makes it easy to read up on authors via their biography.

Value:

NoteStream is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. Overall, I’m definitely impressed with the app and how well it organizes and delivers information to users.

The goal of NoteStream is to help you learn new things quickly, and it accomplishes it quite well.

I highly recommend giving the app a try if you enjoy reading about things that interest you.

Passible Password Manager Keeps Passwords Organized and Secure

Passible Password Manager. Passwords vault & secure login in 1
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Passible, by Clear Sky Apps Ltd, is a well-designed app that’s a great tool to help you keep your passwords all safely stored in one convenient location.

Available for $0.99 through the iTunes Store, this app is perfect for anyone trying to organize their digital life.

Features:

Passible is loaded with features to help keep not only passwords secure, but also credit card numbers as well. Once the passwords are entered into the app, there are multiple ways to retrieve them, including an option to “copy and paste.”

Another option to retrieve stored passwords is by using the iOS Safari web browser and utilizing the Passible extension to automatically fill in the login credentials on the screen.

Lastly, Passible is capable of launching its own web browser within the app and automatically inserting the appropriate login credentials where needed.

However, as mentioned previously, Passible isn’t just limited to saving login credentials and passwords.

Passible also provides a way of storing credit card information, a feature that will come in handy for anyone who does a lot of online shopping.

Similar to the saved passwords, you’re able to copy the card number with a tap and paste it into any iOS web browser.

Passible iPhone App

Passible iPhone App

Some other great features this app provides is a tool that creates a “score” of how secure your passwords are for the internet. It’ll even provide feedback on how to make a better password.

For  those that are worried about having their passwords all stored in one place, Passible has developed the app to utilize AES-256 bit encryption, along with the user’s own 40 character private key.

Passible states that this combination of protection is “impossible to crack.” Lastly, for the iOS devices that have the hardware, Passible is able to utilize the Apple device’s fingerprint scanner for quicker application logins.

Appearance and Layout:

We appreciate the work the developers have done creating an excellent layout that is easy to navigate and easy on the eyes.

The overall appearance has a “high-value” style that is not only aesthetically appealing but also useful. Being able to quickly login to “favorited” websites with one tap is fantastic and highly efficient.

One of the many reasons why Passible is a great app is because of the developers’ attention to detail. For instance, different categories of websites will have different icons.

When the app loads or utilizes a “splash screen,” the app displays computing digits that makes the application feel like it’s decrypting an electrical vault. All in all, Passible’s appearance is cleverly constructed into a wonderful and unique style that many apps struggle to achieve.

Value:

For only $0.99, Passible provides a multitude of features. Unlike other password apps that require a “subscription” service, Passible has all the features for one low price.

This in and of itself makes this iOS app highly valuable. If you’re looking for an application that is useful and convenient, then look no further than Passible. You shouldn’t pass this one up (pun intended)!

SocialPoint – HD
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

A very real question arises when we talk about Social Media. How much is too much? While most of us love to share our thoughts and feelings through our respective social outlets, some people seem to live online. I’ve seen people with 200,000 tweets via Twitter, and that sparkling little ‘200K’ never ceases to blow my mind.

If you’re looking to free up some mental space by consolidating your Social Media, look no further than SocialPoint – HD, from SocialPoint.me.

SocialPoint – HD is a very interesting and capable aggregation app that makes your online social life easier by moving your favorite outlets into a single place.

Features:

Registration on the app is easy, and your download is lightning fast at under 40MB. Once you get in, you’ll want to immediately sync with your select Social Media accounts, or the entire app will be barren.

The App is broken into “Feed”, “Filters”, “Post”, “Search”, and “More”. The ability to connect with your established networks is there, but is a bit hidden in the ambiguous “More” section. We’d like to see that prompt which encourages syncing to be prompted with first login.

The developers have struck the perfect balance; the app is functional without being overdone or too sparse either. You see one main feed with a complete view of your interactions; including your comments, favorites, likes and so on.

Social Point HD iPhone App Review

Social Point HD iPhone App Review

Concept and Functionality:

The concept is sound and the functional execution spot on, although we do think the aesthetic needs some work.

We’ve got some generic templates going on in this app, but with the dollar price tag, we should be getting an aesthetically exceptional experience.

Even better yet, why not customizable?

The app is off to a great start, but we’re most exciting to see what direction it goes in next.

A cleaner, quieter build with a free download would likely invite more users, and an optional $0.99 IAP for upgrades, such as the aesthetically exceptional templates mentioned above, would appeal to the segment of the audience who values style. Food for thought.

Overall Value:

Do you absolutely need to spend a dollar on this app? It depends; how much do you use Social Media?

If you’ve tried other social content aggregators before, you know what to look for; Ease of use, fluidity, and the ability to actually save time when making a post.

This app’s got you covered and boasts most everything it needs to stand out, but could use some finishing touches to fully justify the download.

Press Release: Knick Knack Media Has Released Bubble Jeopardy To Rave Reviews

Bubble Jeopardy
iPhone App Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 13, 2015 – Sydney, Australia Move over Candy Crush, there’s a new sheriff in town, Bubble Jeopary. Knick Knack Media has released Bubble Jeopardy, a free and easy-to-play yet challenging new match-3 game that gamers cannot put down. Between the compelling graphics and exciting gameplay, once you start playing Bubble Jeopardy you’ll find the time just slips away.

Bubble Jeopardy is a challenging and addictive pattern puzzle “Candy Crush” style game with lots of awesome bits and pieces like bubbles, balloons, spray cans, balloon animals, bubbles holding special items like snowflakes, colored tacks and more. The game is free to play with over 240 levels and offers in-app purchases to progress through the game at a much faster pace.

This game is great for all ages, children and adults alike will become immersed in its entertaining gameplay and lively soundtrack. This game takes the match 3 genre to a whole new level by implementing an “anti-gravity” mechanic that flips the typical gravity-based pattern puzzle model on its head. Shiny 3D helium balloons float up into the game board, rather than coming in down from the top.

The rising colorful balloons filling the grid adds a twist that gamers will find interesting and challenging. Make no mistake about it, this game is just as much fun to play, and is as addictive, as any of the top games from the big production houses, such as Candy Crush or Bejeweled. Can an indie development shop make it among the giants? This awesome game proves the answer is yes, but you be the judge.

TheiPhoneAppReview.com, a global leader in iOS app reviews, recently took on the challenge of testing out this new indie game and came away quite impressed. They reported to their readers “There is no doubt that the production value of this game is on a par with those of the mega hit, Candy Crush. The question is, can a game from a indie developer reach the same level of success as one from King? We think so and we think you’ll find this one just as entertaining, if not more so.”

Leaving no doubt about their recommendation, TheiPhoneAppReview.com made their opinion quite clear by stating “Bubble Jeopardy is a fun and addictive match 3 game that delivers top-notch gameplay and slick graphics, all with a unique twist that gamers are sure to enjoy.”

Bubble Jeopardy is available to download for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices from the Apple App Store for free.
