If you’re new to the world of digital SLR’s or would love to learn more, PhotoCaddy HD from Aspyre Solutions Pty Ltd is a great place to start. A new app for the iPad, PhotoCaddy HD is your all-in-one guide to taking that perfect shot.

PhotoCaddy HD is packed full of information and tips that will help you get the most out of your camera. While more directed at users with DSLR’s, even point-and-shoot fans will benefit from some of the advice in this app.

Featuring five different categories including photography essentials, outdoors, people, cities and landscapes – PhotoCaddy HD has you covered in just about every area of photography. The ‘Essentials’ brings you up to speed on basic camera settings such as exposure, flash, ISO level and shutter modes while the other categories provide more specific information relating to your photo subject. Tap on ‘people’ for example, and you will find tips and optimal settings for 14 different types of shots, from babies to couples, portraits and weddings.

Under each particular type of shot, e.g Outdoor Portrait, there is the ability to write your own notes directly into the app by tapping the “+” button in the top-right hand corner of the screen. There is also a tab for user-submitted tips which can be accessed with an internet connection.

The user interface is simple and easy to use, with the navigation bar situated on the left hand side of the screen and the information displayed on the right. At the bottom of the screen are the tabs to flip between photo tips, settings, notes and user tips. It would be great to see some photos in this section, with some examples of the different shots you can achieve by altering the settings that are mentioned for each type of photo.

Bottom Line: A very useful app for any photographer with every aspect covered – but a little pricey at $5.99.

PhotoCaddyHD [iTunes Link] is compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 3.2 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Trim Up with SexyFitness

Price: $1.99   Score: 6/10   By S. Campbellbadge appstore sm Trim Up with SexyFitness

Sex is great for developing cardiovascular and muscular fitness and it’s a well known fact that spending some ‘quality time’ with that special someone is a great way to burn some calories.

Developed by Salubrious Training Ltd, SexyFitness is an iPhone app that gives you the low-down on a whole range of positions, ranging in difficulty from ‘lazy’ to ‘impressive’ with information on the kind of workout that each provides.

Each position features a non-explicit cartoon image of the position being performed and is accompanied by color-coded information – blue for males and pink for females. The muscles worked by each partner are both written out (e.g abdominals, hamstrings, triceps) and also noted on an anatomical diagram.

Each position is also rated on four qualities – stamina, strength, flexibility and calories burnt using an arbitrary 5 point rating system. It would be useful for this information, or at least the calorie burnt info to be quantitative – i.e 140 calories burnt per hour vs 1/5.

There are 39 illustrated positions in total, with standards like Missionary, Spoons and Cowgirl as well as more exotic options such as the Reverse Wheelbarrow or the Crane. You can navigate your way through the three categories – lazy, energetic and impressive or choose a position at random using the ‘surprise me’ button on the home screen.

The user interface of SexyFitness is easy to use, but could do with an update to improve the quality of both the images used as well as a general improvement to the look and feel of the app, particularly the initial menus.

Bottom Line: A handy app for couple’s looking to spice things up in the bedroom and burn some calories at the same time.

SexyFitness [iTunes Link] is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Supa Mega Worm is Super Ridiculous Fun

With possibly the strangest premise for a game I’ve yet seen, Super Mega Worm from Decreased Pixel LLC proves that you don’t need a decent story to end up with a decent game. The idea is that you’re a massive bad-ass worm who has been summoned by Mother Earth to rid the earth of human parasites – “Crawl and eat your way through waves of humans and their robots of destruction.” It makes total sense.

Featuring uber-retro arcade graphics, Super Mega Worm will keep you entertained with 24 action-packed levels, 3 super abilities, 20 things to eat and multiple control styles.

Check the game out for just $0.99 (on sale) and save the world from us. Giant worm style.

Take On Enemies, Save the World with Assault Commando

Price: $1.99     Score: 8/10     By A. Papachristosbadge appstore sm Take On Enemies, Save the World with Assault Commando

When an application’s App Store description begins by warning users what to do if their device crashes, one doesn’t hold much hope for the game itself.  One drastically lowers their expectations when the well being of their expensive and vital device is threatened by a game that one could have easily passed over.  And while it is certainly refreshing to know such a thing could happen in advance, putting such information out there like a billboard for all to see severely distracts from the fine print and the product at hand.

For Assault Commando by 3D Magic Kft, putting said information before all other description could be the worst advertising I have ever seen a wonderful game employ.  Assault Commando offers users a fantastic 3D shooter game that takes place in the South American jungle, providing smooth controls and an intuitive platform that makes this game a joy to play.

When you begin, Assault Commando will first ask if you’d like to enable OpenFeint, which will allow you to track your scores and achievements against the global leaderboard as well as connect to Facebook and Twitter.  Once you have input your preferences, you will find the main menu.  The bottom left corner allows easy access to OpenFeint statistics, while the bottom right corner provides a list of other games offered by the same developer.  Users will also find a button to adjust their Options (aka, the volume), view their Stats, and peruse the Credits.

What users won’t find is a Tutorial button.  To learn, users must dive right in by tapping New Game to begin.  Here, users will be introduced to the world of Jack Gunfire, a war hero who is determined to bring down Albrecht Braun, an evil scientist.  Users will then be guided through the first level with on-screen instructions that highlight the necessary skills to succeed throughout the remainder of the game.

The on-screen joystick in the bottom left corner of the screen is not overly sensitive to your touch, making it much easier to use than the joysticks of similar games.  Users navigate the jungle with their left thumb, while their right thumb intuitively taps the RPGs, machine guns and grenades you must collect along the way.  Though you may skip the tutorial, proceeding through the entire level this way will give you a good idea of what the challenges ahead will be like, teaching you how to regain HP, destroy buildings, hit moving targets and collect more ammunition.  Assault Commando has the same feel as some of the most popular 3D shooter games around, bringing the same enjoyable gaming experience to the palm of your hand.  (And no, the game never crashed while playing – not even once!)

For a peek into the world of Assault Commando, click to view the Official Trailer and 2nd Trailer on YouTube.

Assault Commando [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
