If you’re like me, you love taking a shot at winning something, especially when the cost of entry is free. Number Hunch , from the company by the same name, is a cool way to try your luck with winning a small prize of $100 or more.

Number Hunch is simple to play and is a great way to pass time and maybe win a cash price.

Concept and Functionality:

The first thing you have to do is set up an account with Number Hunch, which is pretty standard. You can do so by email or by connecting Facebook to the app. Once that’s set up, you’re taken to the main screen of the app, which shows four numbers.

The object of Number Hunch is to guess the four digit number of the day. You can do so by either turning the numbers to guess specifically, or you can tap the “Hurry Hunch” button to quickly generate four random numbers.

Once your numbers are chosen, tap the “Submit” button. You’ll have to watch a short video ad after the submission, but once it’s over, you’re free to submit another number. Though the ads might be annoying, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s how Number Hunch earns revenue for prizes.

Features:

Number Hunch is a bit slim on extra features, but the point of the app is simplicity. One thing I do want to mention is that you can optionally use credits for hints such as a “not this number” hint and even a hint that reveals one of the numbers.

In order to buy these useful hints, you’ll need to spend credits. Hints range from 25 credits up to 500, and you’ll have to play the game, share via social networks, or complete tasks such as watching short video ads, in order to earn more.

Other than that, Number Hunch is very straightforward. Perhaps the best part about the app is that you can submit up to 50 “Hunches” in a 24 hour period. It really depends on how many ads you want to sit through. The cash prize go up as more “Hunches” are submitted by all players.

In fact, this app is just like a lottery except that instead of buying tickets you pay by watching 15-30 second ads. If you do win you’ll receive a PayPal iTunes gift card or Amazon gift card check in the mail.

Value:

Number Hunch is free to download from the App Store, and you won’t have to spend anything for extras. Truthfully, the only cost is your time, and it’s totally up to you as to how much you want to spend of it.

Whether you’re feeling lucky and you want to give the game a shot or you’re determined to guess the number of the day, Number Hunch is a fun and free way to try your luck.

Press Release: Teaching Baby LLC Updates Its iOS App, Baby’s Brilliant, With Awesome New Videos

babysbrilliant

Baby’s Brilliant
iPhone App Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 January 22, 2015 – Sherman Oaks, CA Teaching Baby, LLC has updated Baby’s Brilliant for iPhone and iPad with awesome new videos for parents to enjoy with their young children. This innovative app enables babies and toddlers to learn while being entertained by delightful videos that show everyday life set to classical music from the most beloved composers.

babysbrilliant1Baby’s Brilliant provides beautiful short videos, each about five minutes long, which are specially designed to engage your baby to discover and explore the new and exciting world around him or her. Available in English, Spanish, Chinese, French and German, parents will smile as these colorful videos use images from everyday life, as well as inspiring settings from around the globe, to teach young ones numbers, letters, animals and other educational concepts.

The audio soundtracks have been carefully designed and drawn from a variety of genres, including classical, Spanish, spiritual, favorite children’s songs, and soothing lullabies, to perfectly complement the educational content of the videos. Guided by research that shows music increases a child’s overall development, memory, coordination and social skills, these videos offer a multi-modal experience aimed at soothing and enhancing healthy brain development.

“When my children were small, all the existing products had become too complicated, mostly computer generated, over-stimulating them, rather than engaging and educating them,” says Ulli Coulter, founder of Teaching Baby LLC. “It was time for a change”, she added, noting that babies don’t need much more than colors and inanimate objects to look at during those first formative years.

While there are innumerable videos on YouTube, Ulli realized that there was a lack of video material that has been designed specifically for babies and toddlers. In addition, even if you can find a good video on YouTube, as the experts at Kspersky Labs noted, “Children can be exposed to inappropriate content on YouTube,” and that kids can be as few as three clicks away from inappropriate content.

Baby’s Brilliant solves the problem for parents and care givers by providing enriching videos set to some of the world’s greatest music and all within an app that insures no inappropriate content will be viewed. Parents will also appreciate that the app includes read-along books.

Baby’s Brilliant is a universal app available to download from the App Store for free and can be expanded with a variety of $0.99 IAPs.

 

About the Developer:

Teaching Baby LLC was founded by Ulli Coulter, a busy mother of three, who was finding it more and more difficult to find enriching and educational materials for her children. She, along with her husband Benedict Coulter, an award winning editor/producer of coming attractions, wanted a tool to turn down the “noise” and turn up mind development; with that in mind, Baby’s Brilliant was born.

Adaptive SAT – Math

Whether you’re a parent whose son or daughter is preparing for the SAT exam or a student who is looking for an edge, Adaptive SAT – Math is definitely the app you’re looking for. Appzest Inc brings you a very comprehensive prep app that’s focuses solely on the math section of the SAT exam.

Concept and Functionality:

Studying for the SATs isn’t exactly everyone’s idea of “fun”, but it doesn’t have to be incredibly painful, either.

Adaptive SAT – Math is a very comprehensive study tool for iPad which will help students find their weak areas and work to improve on them.

The app makes a very strong point that it’s not your traditional study tool, primarily because it adapts to each individual’s learning needs through repeated use of test questions.

Adaptive SAT – Math includes four different math topics: algebra, arithmetic, statistics, and geometry. Each subject contains focus chapters, which help students break down topics into more digestible pieces.

To use the app properly, students should first take the skill assessment test for each topic area so the app can determine their level of knowledge. Adaptive SAT – Math will take the results from the assessment and make recommendations based on scores.

If a weak area is found, the app encourages students to take practice questions located in the correlating focus chapter.

One of the things I really like about Adaptive SAT – Math is the fact that you can easily see detailed feedback after each assessment, so you can watch your scores improve over time with consistent use of the app.

Adaptive SAT – Math iPad App

Instead of just dishing out test prep questions, Adaptive SAT – Math encourages students to focus almost solely on the chapters they have a problem with.

Features:

Seeing as Adaptive SAT – Math is available only on iPad, offline use is a must-have feature. Luckily the app doesn’t rely on an Internet connection, so students can take it with them wherever they go.

Another fantastic feature of Adaptive SAT – Math is the fact that it’s incredibly no frills, meaning there’s no fluff or unnecessary junk in the app.

It’s very straightforward, and you don’t have to worry about being distracted by sharing your awesome test scores with a social networking site. This allows students to focus wholly on studying.

Value:

Adaptive SAT – Math is available to download from the App Store for $4.99, which is a fantastic price given the fact that comparable software, learning systems, and books can cost upwards of $100 or more. Plus, students get a lot of bang for their buck.

Overall, Adaptive SAT – Math is a fantastic study tool that separates itself from the rest of the pack by driving students to focus on areas they’re having trouble with using comprehensive feedback from assessments.

I definitely recommend it for anyone who is undergoing SAT prep.

Bubbly Walrus for iOS Is a Fun Multiplication Game for Kids

Bubbly Walrus
iPad Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

 

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Bubbly Walrus teaches kids how to quickly calculate multiplication in order to complete levels successfully. Developed by F and J Estudio Digital Ltda, this fast-paced math game is perfect for youngsters who are honing their multiplication skills. It’s even great for adults who want to brush up on mental math, too!

Concept and Gameplay:

Math is all about practice, and Bubbly Walrus aims to help kids fine-tune their mental math and multiplication skills through a series of levels. There’s even a neat background story behind the game.

Kids must help Walrus rescue his girlfriend from the grips of the evil kidnappers, and level environments reflect the journey that Walrus must embark on to save her. There are even bosses to fight, which really helps kids to all but forget about the fact that they’re playing a math game.

To play Bubbly Walrus, kids must pull floating numbers to the bottom of the screen in order to solve the equation at the bottom of the screen. Depending on the level, the equation at the bottom could be something like 2×4, or it could be multiples of the numbers at the bottom.

For example, if the numbers 2 and 3 are showing at the bottom of the screen, kids must pull the 15 bubble from the top and place it over the 3, the 8 bubble over the 2, and so on. Levels are timed, so it’s important to complete them as quickly as possible. Once a level is completed, kids will receive a star rating to show how well they performed.

In terms of gameplay, Bubbly Walrus definitely has a great amount of educational content to offer. The best thing is that the game changes as kids progress through levels, so it doesn’t get boring and stale.

They’ll actually look forward to moving on and helping Walrus rescue his lady. Plus, cute animations and great sound effects really help to immerse children in the world of Bubbly Walrus.

Features:

Bubbly Walrus comes with a few extra features, mainly the ability to use power ups and boosts as kids progress through the game. These boosts can be tapped to be activated, and will help children complete levels faster.

Also, if kids complete a level in time with no errors, they’ll be presented with a collectible card at the end of the game. There’s a twist, however. In order to redeem the card, kids must share their accomplishment on one of four social media networks: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Tumblr.

Personally I think social media integration doesn’t belong in a children’s game, and instead of having to share, kids should either complete another challenge or automatically receive the card seeing as it’s a reward for a perfect level.

Value:

Bubbly Walrus is available to download from the App Store for $1.99, which is a very fair price given the fact that there are no additional in-app purchases and there’s tons of content for kids to play through. Plus, the game is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

Overall, I think Bubbly Walrus is truly a wonderful math game for kids, but parents need to be aware of the fact that social media is heavily integrated into it. While this might not be an issue for older children, it’ll likely be a turnoff for many parents who want their child to be focused solely on the game.

Bubbly Walrusbubbly_walrus_ipad.jpg requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Let Your Friends Know You Care with ThotOfU

ThotOfU: Send picture greetings to friends via Email, WhatsApp, FaceBook
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

ThotOfU is an app by ParikshaLabs that makes it quick and simple to send digital cards, or e-cards, to friends and family members.

Featuring various templates and a seemingly endless picture library, ThotOfU makes creating personalized greetings fun, easy and simple to do.

Features:

Just as its name indicates, ThotOfU is an app designed to make sending e-cards to your friends easy to do whenever you think of them. It features multiple card templates, and we found it very easy to find ones that would be appropriate for various hypothetical situations.

Finding relevant photos was also fairly simple to do; however, even though sending greetings through the app is free, images within the app have “credit” prices on them and must be purchased in order to be used.

Once a purchase has been made, however, that image can be used by that user an indefinite number of times if desired.

Additionally, unlike regular e-cards that can only be sent via emails, ThotOfU offers its users the options of sending greetings through WhatsAp or Facebook as well (as well as via email.)

In fact, use of this app requires creating an account through your already-existing Facebook account; because of this, anyone who does not have a Facebook account (or does not wish to link his/her account to apps) will not find ThotOfU to be useful. We suggest letting people use an email account to register.

We certainly understand the importance of viral marketing, but we also value privacy and believe this app would do well to allow users to add friends “ad hoc” from an email address rather than forcing people to share Facebook contact info. If the app offers a compelling value the viral marketing will surely follow.

Obviously for those who are not concerned about sharing Facebook contacts, and we get enough Facebook invitations to know there are many out there, this is is a non-issue.

Appearance and Layout:

ThotOfU iPhone App

ThotOfU iPhone App

The color scheme of ThotOfU is definitely quite bright and because of this, it might not be appreciated by certain audiences who would prefer more muted themes. However, regardless of your color preferences, once you have established your account getting around the app is easy to do.

Thanks to a well thought out UI and design, creating cards using different templates and pictures is pretty easy as well.

While the quality of the images featured in ThotOfU are arguably quite good, some of these images might seem too dismal for sensitive consumers; for instance, the image of a man hanging himself is really not appropriate for many audiences (even if it might be considered to be the most accurate representation of a user’s feelings).

Additionally, the fact that you have to purchase images (instead of getting to use them for free) also is somewhat disappointing. It would be great is there was a group of “public domain” images that users could opt for without paying a fee.

Value:

Although ThotOfU is currently available as a free download through the iTunes Store, the features of the app cannot be used for free as well. The minimum purchase to get going is 100 credits for $0.99.

Because of this, even though the app is easy to use, many iOS users may still prefer to use other more traditional methods of sending e-greetings instead.
