Top 5 iPhone Apps Reviewed
This week’s top five iPhone apps have it all! Action, functionality, and Steve Tyler?
This week our iPhone app reviews covered a gamut of categories, some sizzled, such as Room 77 allowing guests to view hotel rooms before they arrive, and others fizzled, SMSWriter, an app designed to take the thought out of your thought process. In the end, we covered some amazing new apps, some are featured below. However, our top 5 list also features Fight Night Champion and AppSoLewdly, which you must see to below.
Fight Night Champion
Fight Night Champion – $4.99
Fight Night Champion is an iPhone app that hits hard, and packs a lot of punch in their $4.99 app fee. Ported from EA Sports console boxing game, Fight Night Champion lives up to the hype! The controls are superb and fluid, allowing you to utilize the full range of the screen to tap, and swipe for a variety of jabs, blocks, and uppercuts. Our favorite aspect is the ability to bring a new fighter up through the ranks, aiming for the prize fights with Ali and other legends. And, once you have taken down the computer opponents, get ready to take this game to the streets by taking on friends, or foes via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections.
Appsolewdly iPhone app
Steven Tyler AppSoLewdly – $2.99
You may love Steven Tyler from his myriad of hit songs, his engery and passion, or his recently assumed role on American Idol. You may not love Steven Tyler, but love playing pranks on your friends. Either way, the new Steven Tyler iPhone app AppSoLewdly is fun, entertaining, and worth every penny.
With AppSoLewdly you garner an element of backstage access into Steven Tylers life, including uncensored and self made videos, photos never before released to the public, and potentially the best part, a slew of sounds, inclusive of a digital sound box stocked full of “Tylerisms.”
So get your friends on the phone and enjoy the ensuing hilarity as you toy with their emotions playing digital sounds from your AppSoLewdly app and listen to their attempts to converse with Steven Tyler.
- Evernote 4 iPhone app
Evernote 4 – Free
Evernote has long been a favorite, and we rather enjoyed utilizing this service, both web based, and as an app. However, we must share our applause with Evernote, as they did not rest upon their laurals. Rather, they released a full fledged upgrade this week, and it is fantastic.
As we outlined several days ago in our Evernote iPhone app review, Evernote enhanced their iPhone app with a robust and upgraded home screen. They also implemented a new function that we love, entitled “Snippet,” thus allowing users to view a portion of their notes.
With enhanced search features, a new GUI, and an overall overhaul, Evernote graced us with a splendid update.
