Monster Free Apps - Find free games and apps daily - FluxAds.com

Price: Free
Rating:

Monster Free Apps is a brand new application from FluxAds.com that takes the guess work out of getting paid apps for free!  This iPhone app notifies you via daily, push notifications when paid apps become free and gives you an option to download them everyday.  Many developers will place their apps on specials to get more people interested in their products, and this app will keep track and let you know when they become free.  Monster Free Apps will notify you of approximately two to four new free apps each day, which translates to 60 to 100+ apps per month!  This can save you quite a bit of money and takes the leg work out of waiting for, and possibly missing, these sales.

Usability :

The Monster Free Apps iPhone app is great for savvy users that want free apps.  So many times I have seen an iPhone app that I want, but have not been interested in dishing out the cash.  Then I find out that it was FREE a week prior, and I missed the sale.  This application does all the work for you.  You get the full versions of apps, not demos or previews.  They send you the notifications and you choose if you want the apps or not.  It couldn’t be easier.

Operation Wow! Welcome to a Pulse Pounding, Finger Tapping, War Zone!

Reviewed By: Phil Charlton

Operation wow - Ivanovich Games

 

Price: $1.99
Rating:

Get ready for intense warfare action with the first multi-touch shooter for the iPhone, Operation Wow, a game that is based on an arcade legend from 25 years ago.

For anyone that remembers the original arcade game Operation Wolf, the plot of Operation Wow is fairly straightforward: get from the start of the level to the end by shooting everything that moves, with the exception of the occasional civilian that decides to run across the screen.

This side-scrolling 2D shooter is one of the first games available on the iPhone that supports multi-touch, which allows players to tap in multiple locations on the screen to shoot the enemy. This creates the ability to utilize the entire screen for gameplay and develop killer combos!

These features also allow the game to behave in the same way as the original arcade version and at the more difficult settings make the action so much more frantic and exciting.

Games Design:

The Operation Wow! iPhone game is so true to the original arcade classic it has to be seen to be believed. When you consider the size of an iPhone screen and the limitations that come with building games to suit it the whole design of Operation Wow is truly spectacular. Even on the easiest level the game pushes your abilities to their absolute limit and as the levels get harder you find yourself tapping the screen like mad in a desperate attempt to keep yourself alive.

The mini-games are well designed and look to have been put there to help relax and bring your pulse back down in between playing the main game, which is something you may need to do with increasing regularity in the more difficult stages of the game.

Prepare For Crazy Granny Racing with Turbo Grannies

Reviewed By: Phil Charlton

Turbo Grannies - Imperial Game Studio

Price: $.99
Rating:

Driving granny around in a super scooter has never been so much fun with the action packed adrenaline-fuelled entertainment of Turbo Grannies by Imperial Game Studio

The aim of Turbo Grannies is quite simple; get Granny and her scooter from one side of the map to the other in one piece. A simple aim but the reality of the game is far from simple as even the most skillful player will be tested to their absolute limits with three increasingly difficult maps to traverse.

The game controls are fairly basic but the addition of accelerometer control adds another facet to an already great game as players try desperately to keep granny under control as she careens down hills and flies over jumps across the map.

Design:

Considering  Turbo Grannies is somewhat of a retro styled game it is so well made with superb graphics, entertaining sound effects. The levels are well thought out and superbly designed making this an iPhone app that is well worth the price of admission. The menu system is a basic affair that allows users to start playing or view their time and scores. Further in you are able to choose one of the three maps to play on at any point you may have already completed. Getting granny racing across the map has been made easy with users simply pressing the right side of the screen to speed up and the left to slow down. The inclusion of the accelerometer function means that users will need to tilt their phones constantly to keep granny steady.

Say Hola to a New Language with Immersive Spanish iPhone and iPad App

Immersive Spanish iphone app

Immersive Spanish - Learn and Study - Wattanasoft

 

Price: $1.99
Rating:

Learning a new language has always proven to be quite a challenge for me, and I settled on Spanish several years ago due to an upcoming trip to Buenos Aires, and statistically I felt it would come in handy in the US, and more specifically, San Diego where I was residing. I tried several tutorials and even coughed up a small fortune for Rosetta Stone. Looking back now, I wish I simply had access to the new Immersive Spanish iPhone app, also available for the iPad.

Immersive Spanish possesses the elements of learning a new language that have worked for me previously, as well as elements found in robust software titles.  However, the app itself is under a dollar ($.99)!  By utilizing a variety of sensory elements, my mind is able to formulate memory triggers. Immersive Spanish is easy to get started, and they suggest that sounds + pictures equals words, which works for me.

Quality of Content:

Immersive Spanish helps you to build a solid foundation for your new language of choice. Their approach is to help you speak like a local by dissecting each world and breaking it down into syllables. I suppose I was a hooked on phonics type of child, as phonetic spelling was where  I first garnered traction with the English language, and the iPhone app has people like me covered with their “sounds like” feature that shows the phonetic spelling. I am also a rather visual person, and visual learning tends to enhance my memory, or certainly it augments the way I learn, and again the Immersive Spanish app caters to this need by offers definable images with each word.

Halftone App is Full of Creativity

Halftone iPhone app

Halftone - Juicy Bits

 

Price: $1.99
Rating:

Vintage is an astonishingly hot trend of late; leave it to fashion to make something vintage fashion forward! Whether you love retro glam, enjoy action packed comic books of the 50, 60s, or early 70s, or simply want to make your iPhone pictures more interesting like retro postcards, Halftone by Juicy Bits is a wonderful iPhone app to do all of the above.

Let’s face it.  We have all likely downloaded an iPhone photo editing app previously and been rather disappointed by the effects rendered. Whether it is an iPhone app or software for your computer, photo editing titles tend to over-promise and under-deliver. I suppose that is why I love Halftone as much as I do. Halftone adds a vintage and comic book flair, with an underlying retro newspaper feel, to any and all of your iPhone photos.

Creative Elements:

Unlike similar apps that make the vintage / comic book photo editing claim, which often leave you with pixelated garbage, Halftone delivers!  In addition to delivering the <BAM> and <ZONK> style of vintage Batman episodes and infusing a 2os inspired <Get Ye’ Get Ye’> newspaper look into your photo, there are a variety of effects and text style options to choose. You can determine the layout of both the captions and the title, as well as the type of paper texture you desire.
