Apper – Design, Create, and Build an App
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Apper makes the task of creating your own app a breeze. Developed by Alborada, this tool is perfect for anyone who would like to create an app for their business, an event, or any other content-driven type of app that might come to mind (not for creating games or the next flashlight app).

My favorite thing about Apper is it takes an otherwise monumental tasks and breaks it down into something that can be accomplished within a few hours. The layout is fantastic, and I really like how Apper gently guides the user through the process of creating their app while giving them almost total control over how it looks.

Overall, if you’re looking for an easy way to create your own iOS app, Apper is the perfect way to go. The app is totally free except for a few in-app purchases which add up to a few dollars. The only large fee you’ll incur is Apple’s fee of $99 to publish on the App Store.

The Top 10 iPhone Apps We Use by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Those of us who work at TheiPhoneAppReview.com not only review apps, we also use apps and have our personal favorites that may be old friends or new buddies, but either way they’re on our iPhones or iPads and we use them on a regular basis.

We thought it would be helpful to you, our loyal readers, to share with you our favorite apps that, in one way or another, enrich our lives.

Sometimes these apps help us in small ways, such as a game that offers an entertaining diversion while we’re waiting for that morning coffee, sometimes they help to achieve our personal goals, such as a fitness app, or it may be a serious productivity app that we need to get our jobs done.

Whatever the case, these apps may be widely popular or diamonds in the rough, but they are apps we use and love.

So, without further ado, here is the first installment of The Top iPhone Apps We Use.

myfitnesspalicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseCalorie Counter & Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal – Free

About six months ago, I’d hit a weight with which I just didn’t feel comfortable. So, I decided to take my waistline into my own hands—or in my own pocket, I suppose.

MyFitness Pal is easily the best, most efficient way I have ever found to track calories and weight loss via your iPhone.

It’s elegant, simple to use, and is frequently updated. All of these things make for an experience that takes the edge off taking the fat off.

I’ve lost 13 pounds to date, and I intend to keep rocking with the help of this little fitness buddy.  —  Luke Patrick

 

duolingoicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseDuolingo: – Free

I am a bilingual person, speaking both English and French on a regular basis. However, I’m extremely interested in other languages, and I’ve yet to find a better way to pursue that interest than with Duolingo.

The application is a delight to use, and turns the drudgery of learning a new tongue into something approaching an arcade game.

Currently the program offers popular languages like Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch. You can spend as little or as much time with each as you want.

Just know that this isn’t your Rosetta Stone type app. You’ll get to actually speak the language, hear lots of vocal words, and entirely skip the tedious grammar memorization.

It’s absolutely heavenly, I promise.  —  Luke Patrick

 

untappedicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseUntapped: – Free

On a lighter (or possibly much more fattening) note, my love of beer finds no better home than Untapped for the iPhone.

Think of it as a FourSquare for your favorite brews. If you’re sampling a new type of beer, boot up the app and add it to your profile with a rating.

The app learns what you like, and then suggests other, similar types of beer to you.

The app caters to a niche market, but with more and more hipsters getting into craft beer, it’s definitely worth a look for the beer enthusiast.

With more than 100 distinct beer tastings to my name already, I’ve earned a wealth of badges, found a handful of incredible new beers, and have made several new friends along the way.  —  Luke Patrick

 

acornsicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseAcorns: – Free

Most banks have some kind of program that involves rounding up your spare change and placing it into a savings account. I’ve enjoyed these kinds of programs in the past, as they help me effortlessly save up, even when I’m not thinking about money at all.

This same concept has been applied to creating your own investment portfolio, thanks to Acorns.

It’s a work-in-progress (they’ve had some hiccups with money moving lately) but I’ve enjoyed my time with it thus far. Users pay nominal fees, and in turn the app takes spare change and invests it in easy ETFs.

Will this replace my standard investment account? No, not really. But it’s the perfect solution for new investors that don’t want the headaches and just want the rewards.  —  Luke Patrick

 

breatheicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseStop, Breathe & Think: – Luke Patrick

Taking time out of your day to relax and de-stress is just difficult. With busy schedules, lots of errands to take care, and constant crisis that pop-up, there’s just no good way to block off a portion of the day for me-time.

Stop, Breathe & Think tries to take the edge off of all this by encouraging you to meditate for small periods every day.

It rewards users for doing so with stickers and personal encouragement. Offering guided meditations that range from five minutes to an hour, the app is the perfect way for me to turn-off, sit-down and just breathe for a while.

It’s not for everyone, but I promise it isn’t as hippie-dippy as it sounds. If you’re comfortable listening to your own breathing for a while, you’ll do well with Breathe.

 

spotifyicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseSpotify: – Luke Patrick

It’s not exactly an uncommon application to find on people’s smartphones, but I could not get around without Spotify on the iPhone.

I pay the premium membership fee each month to get the most out of my app, and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. There’s one reason why, too:

Because all of my music is streamed, I never have to worry about running out of hard drive space again.

My iPhone is squeaky clean on the disk-side and runs like a dream now that it’s not carrying thousands of MP3s.

Plus, Spotify’s audio quality is ridiculous, which means my increased storage space comes with very little cost. Other than that membership, I guess.

 

nikeicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseNike+ Training Club: - Free

Although it might take a little longer to load on older iOS devices, the Nike Training app is a great tool for anyone looking for motivation to workout.

With an easy, user-friendly layout, this app features workouts for users of all fitness levels, complete with how-to videos for each exercise.

The app also allows you to easily play your own music while still running the app; music played on your iPod softens momentarily when the app is directing a change in a workout or noting a set period of progress.

I also really appreciate how Nike+ offers both longer (45 minute) and shorter (15 minute) workout plans, and the way that the app tracks your completed workouts is definitely another positive aspect of it as well.  —  Marilyn Chau

 

instatusicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseinStatus: - $0.99

Although there are definitely other, more popular apps that offer similar features to inStatus, I’ve found it to be a photo editing app that is definitely underrated.

inStatus features an easy to navigate layout with a plenty of photo editing tools to tweak your iOS images into more impressive pieces of art.

My favorite use for inStatus is actually its layering options, specifically the number of fonts that can be used to layer text over images.

The in-app typography can be easily adjusted to fit your chosen image’s needs, and exporting edited images to either your photo library or to a social media platform (like Instagram) just takes a few more clicks.

Overall, inStatus is a very user-friendly app for anyone wanting to do clean editing on their iOS images.  —  Marilyn Chau

 

ptrackericon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UsePeriod Tracker Lite: - Free

Offered as both a free and a “complete” (for-pay) version, Period Tracker Lite is a great app for any females who want to easily keep track of their hormonal cycles.

The app features slots to quickly fill in any information you want to record on a daily basis, from temperature recordings to mood swings.

On-screen swipes are all that is needed for recording the start and end of menstrual periods, and the app does all the work of predicting of how your next cycles might play out, based on the information you have inputted for previous cycles.

P Tracker also does the work of compiling your inputted info into charts, letting you easily see patterns like the average length of your cycles or how your basal body temperature fluctuates during the month.  —  Marilyn Chau

 

kindleicon 150x150 The Top 10 iPhone Apps We UseKindle – Free

There is no question that dedicated book readers are nice, and have some real advantages in certain situations, such as reading in the sun outdoors.

However, being able to pick up your phone or tablet and start reading where you left off, is a convenience that I frequently use and appreciate.

Whether I’m using my Android phone or iPad, my book is sync’d and I can pick up right where I left off. This app works great and, in addition to the tremendous selection of books available, both paid and free, you can easily add pdf and MS Word docs just by emailing them to a unique email address that’s provided to you.

All in all this is one of the most useful apps I have.  —  Jim Desposito

TK1 169x300 Textkraft; An Impossibly Efficient and Useful Way to Use Words

Review by Adam Itkoff

Apps like Textkraft Pocket, from Infovole, are a rare breed. These apps are so damn comprehensive that they beg to be used by a desktop counterpart, and the fact that they’re designed and driven toward iOS is simply mind boggling.

Textkraft Pocket is truly a stellar accomplishment. Weighing in at under 30MB and boasting 16 International dictionaries, this app can take you from a writing amateur to veteran in weeks flat.

Whether you write for a living, simply take notes occasionally, or anything in-between, Textkraft is a must.

We’re blown away by the amount of features that are packed into this tiny little app. Given all it delivers, it certainly deserves a few bucks, if not more.

If you’ve ever taken notes via Evernote or the inherent “Notes” app included in your iOS device, you may have notice that they’re lacking when it comes to overall functionality. Sure, these apps let you write, but you sure won’t be drafting a manuscript or working to publish a draft on those apps.

Textkraft is different, it very likely has everything your word processor currently has, if not more.

Some of the best and most notable features are as follows: the ability to work with multiple documents by swiping, the ability to select words, sentences and phrases through tapping, placing your cursor via touchscreen, inserting quotation marks or brackets via abbreviated gestures, undo/redo to your hearts content, and hop between 16 (offline) dictionaries to utilize your language of choice!

These languages range from Dansk, Deutsch, English Español, Français, Italiano, Nederlands, Português, Svenska, Türkçe, and more, while including regional dialogue and nuance.

Textkraft iPhone App

Most impressively, and fully utilizing iOS 7/8 functionality, words can be dictated directly into the app by utilizing Siri. Imagine a flawless combination of oral dictation and touchscreen editing, and you’ve got the ability to churn out a truly significant amount of content via Textkraft.

There are many more features to describe, but we recommend you download and explore.

The app is impossibly light, extremely quick, and somehow makes writing a breeze. Without having to cram words into a tiny space or worry about misspellings, Textkraft quickly becomes like your own personal editor, helping you to achieve profound content in minutes flat.

While it can’t get your great American novel published, it can actually make you far more efficient while writing it.

In general, the app was quick, never froze or crashed, and also displays an aesthetically brilliant logo and clean, sexy display. If you couldn’t tell by now, our accolades are definitely going out to this app and its developers.

Sure the app might cost a little bit more than usual, but this one is without a doubt worth every penny. With rave reviews soaring across the App Store, if you do even just a fair amount of writing, you’ll soon find this app indispensable. If you’ve ever thought you would benefit from having a full blown word processor in your pocket, Textkraft is your one stop shop to do so.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

The One, developed by Alan Riley, is a breakthrough app that is deceivingly simple yet puts a unique spin on finding the perfect date, and stands out in a very populated area of the App Store.

Whether you’ve looked at dating apps just for fun or for a serious date, you know there are a ton to choose from.

Most of these apps ask about your likes and dislikes, then show you a list of other users in your area. The problem? These apps only show people you might be interested in when you’re actually using it. That’s where The One comes in.

Instead of having to add a dating app browsing session to your daily routine, The One allows you to essentially “set it and forget it”.

What I mean by this is that you’re required to put in basic information such as name, gender, age, etc., and choose at least five of your favorite activities from the given list.

The One quietly works in the background while you carry on with your day, alerting you if there’s a person with similar interests within 5 miles of your location.

If you happen to be interested in the person that the app matched you with, you can contact them directly and chat.

The only drawback to an app like The One is that it’s really only meant for users in cities or other heavily populated areas. Plus, the app is fairly new, so the user base has yet to grow.

The One is very light on features, but for once that’s a good thing. You’re not pestered with personality questions or cumbersome lists of people you have to sort through.

The app does 95% of the work for you. For casual users who don’t want to spend all day sorting through profiles, this is definitely a plus.

Naturally privacy is a huge concern when it comes to dating and geolocation apps, and users can rest assured knowing that The One never shares your exact location with any of your matches.

If you’re a socialite who lives in a populated area and you’re looking for a new way to meet people with similar interests, The One is definitely worth checking out.

 AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Room

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

A couple years back we reviewed a rash of exciting new augmented reality games. These were titles that added to or in some way changed your environment using the iPhone’s camera. However, this was back on the iPhone 3, and the technology . . . wasn’t quite there. 

Thankfully, we now have applications like AR Tap Shooter, from Khoa Nguyen, that are reinvigorating the genre, bringing a fresh coat of paint, as it were. 

AR Tap Shooter is an arcade-style shooter that features exciting gameplay modes and a wealth of perks all tied neatly together with a unique concept.

If that sounds like something you could get in to, then follow down below the break for our full review of AR Tap Shooter.

Concept and Gameplay star AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Roomstar AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Roomstar AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Roomstar AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Roomemptystar AR Tap Shooter: Kill It — It’s in Your Living Room

As with all augmented reality games, AR Tap Shooter begins and ends with your devices camera. It uses what it “sees” there to create a whole new reality for you to play in. With AR Tap Shooter at the helm, you’ll be defending yourself from a continuous onslaught of alien invaders. To defeat them—presumably saving your living room, laundry bins, or what have you—just tap until they’re dead!

In this way, the action behind AR Tap Shooter greatly resembles a tower defense game. If you’re not quick enough or resourceful enough to beat back the invasion, you’ll lose hit points (and the game). However, AR Tap Shooter has made this slightly easier on the player. 

The game comes loaded with 3 primary weapons, 16 secondary models, and a whopping 8 perks.  All of these create a rich gaming atmosphere where the user can snuggle in, perfecting a play style. 

What’s really cool is that you don’t need to continuously tap the screen to shoot the enemies. You just need hold one finger on the screen to shoot. Then, while your finger is on the screen, you can drag it around to shoot at different enemies. This auto-fire mode really pumps up the gameplay.

It’s a lot of fun, if for no other reason than watching your own home be invaded by foreign assailants. Plus, the game comes with some fun 3D modeling to play with on the side: Ever wanted a monster on your coffee table? Try it out here first.

AR Tap Shooter for iPhone

The game’s effort cannot be denied, and what we have here is an app that’s technically impressive, and equally as sophisticated. Sure, the menu and weapon icons aren’t quite as glamorous as we might like. But our aesthetic complaints aside, everything else about the game has been fine tuned.

Alien models, if a bit repetitive, are spot-on. Likewise the simple controls make AR Tap Shooter a cinch to pickup. It’s a tight game, and though we have our worries about extended replay value, for the first handful of run throughs, you’ll get a lot out of it.

You also can’t beat a free price tag, which is what AR Tap Shooter has under its belt. That’s a darn good deal to us, especially if you’ve yet to enjoy the full splendor of an augmented reality arcade game. 

For those both new and veteran in the genre, this is a solid number to check out. AR Tap Shooter promises and delivers on all fronts. And with a free price tag too, there’s hardly a thing to lose! 

The app is also available from the Amazon App Store.

 Push Out is the Perfect iPad Board Game for Kids

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

We love to find apps that stray from the herd and in so doing, bring to our readers something interesting, different, and very worthwhile.

Push Out — friends competition game, from Alexander Bekert, is a gem featuring beautiful hand-drawn graphics, a nice upbeat soundtrack and an inventive and engaging boardgame-style gameplay.

This fun game has a wonderful feel to it and is perfect for its target age group, kids ages 9 to 11. If you’re looking for something fun and different for your child to play with you or their friends, Push Out needs to be at the top of your list.

Start up this game and you’ll instantly be drawn in by the hand drawn multi-layered images. Some are in the background and some float above the background but under other floating images in a way that is really quite impressive.

Most of the items are drawn in such a way as to make them look like their hanging from puppet strings and that certainly adds to the unique flavor of this game.

You can select a simple tutorial to get a feel for what the game is all about, which is very helpful since the game mechanics are a bit of a challenge, and very likely something you’ve not encountered before. Each game piece can rotate or move in the direction it’s pointing.

You touch the board to make it go where it’s facing and you release your finger to stop it and let it spin. Every time it stops it rotates in the opposite direction. At the end of the tutorial the option to ‘Swipe Right to Continue’ doesn’t work, something that’s sure to be fixed in the next update. We would also like to see a way to back up when you’re into the ‘How to Play’ section.

The game is played either in the arena or in the labyrinth. The labyrinth is for one player to move the little round character along a path hitting all the spots and without falling off the path. Not too hard until you try to beat your previous time or beat your friends. It’s a real challenge to do it fast.

The arena is where you compete against your friends or the computer, or both. This competitive aspect makes this a refreshing change from the self-immersive games most of us play and makes this game perfect for a play-date, family night or a party.

The design and graphics of this game are spot on. The bouncing images hanging by strings that are layered amongst other images has a very appealing feel to it. The hand-drawn images are terrific and the whole package just makes the game very inviting.

You get the feeling that you’ll have fun with this game before you do anything, and believe us, you will!

Three bucks for this game is a steal. Its production quality is among the highest we’ve seen and when you couple that with the fun group gameplay you have a sure winner.
