Give Your Brain a Workout With Memory Puzzle HD

Price: $1.99    Score: 7/10   By S. Campbellbadge appstore sm Give Your Brain a Workout With Memory Puzzle HD

If you enjoy a good brain twister, Memory Puzzle HD from Sulaba Inc will be right up your alley. A simple memory game for iPad, Memory Puzzle HD challenges you to recall the position of a number, color or part of a picture under time pressure.

Starting a game is easy, just pick which type of puzzle you want to play – “Numbers” for example – and then tap or “shake” to randomize. Once the numbers have stopped moving, you’ll get a limited amount of time in which to memorize their positions. The game defaults to a 3×3 grid – meaning there are 9 numbers to commit to memory, but this can be increased up to 5×5 under settings.

After the timer runs out the numbers disappear from the playing grid and the challenge begins. In the bottom right there’s a tile which flashes up a number – you have to remember where that number was located on the grid and then tap it to select. If you get it right you’ll get a big green tick, or a big red cross if you get it wrong. You only get 9 shots (for a 9 square grid), so the maximum score is 9/9 and every one you forget is 1 point off that total.

The other game types – Colors and Picture Puzzle – are played in exactly the same way, with colors or parts of a picture taking the place of the numbers, respectively.

All the games work on the same basic principle outlined above, and it can be quite challenging – but I’d like to see some more variety in the kind of games available in Memory Puzzle HD. Some background music, or at least the ability to play your own, would also be a good addition.

Memory Puzzle HD [iTunes Link] is compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 3.2 or later

Get Sucked Away With Mazonaut

Price: $0.99     Score: 9/10     By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Get Sucked Away With Mazonaut

Simple concepts that are well-executed – always a winning combination when it comes to iPhone games. Mazonaut, created by iBright Studios, puts you in control of a cute little astronaut charged with the impossible task of making it through a never-ending maze as it’s destroyed by a black hole. Use the accelerometer to make him haul butt like his life depends on it, because it does.

There are no levels – however, each time you restart the game, the maze changes. This is probably my favorite feature, as it means you can pick up your phone and start a new game to kill a few minutes without having to navigate through the same old maze. And it really is never-ending; there’s no finishing this maze, it’s just a matter of seeing how far you can get and how high you can score.

The black hole is the enemy, but your mazonaut has a few toys to help him out. Anytime you see something – rocket packs, boots – pick them up, as they’re likely to launch you far ahead, blast everything in your way, or do something equally as useful. As you move through the maze, it begins to break apart and get sucked into the black hole behind you. It’s not always right on your heels; in fact, it’s quite slow at first, giving you time to get ahead. But there’s no going back – even if the destruction is far behind you, you can’t move left on the screen. That means if you make a wrong move, your only options are to either press “restart” or wait for the black hole to suck you away.

Other features: Turn the sound off and/or set it to your iPod music instead. And of course, you can set the calibration. For maze fans and those who love fast-paced, adrenaline-rush games, this is a good one for just $0.99.

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

Stay On Top of The Market With Insider Trades

Price: FREE     Score: 9/10     By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Stay On Top of The Market With Insider Trades

Investing, buying, selling, trading – admittedly, I’m no expert. But I do know a killer free app when I see one.

Insider Trades is designed to help you make better, faster, more informed decisions when it comes to investments by providing you with detailed information on the insider trading that goes on every day. The app is created by Directors Deals, who track and analyze all of these trades and present them to you in an easy-to-navigate format.

The app opens to the latest fifty bulletins; a list of companies you can tap and see country, market cap, sector, the latest price, a price graph, and the latest and most significant trades involving the company. You can also tap to see the directors, trade history, and a list of fundamentals and dividends. Tap the “+” in the top right to add that company to your watchlist so you can find it even faster. Rotating your iPhone allows you to view the price graph full-screen landscape.

Your choices along the bottom of the app include a search option to find a specific company fast, your watchlist, and your settings. You can set Insider Trades with an end-of-day or intra-day alert, as well as adjust the currency and the time for your watchlist trades. There’s also a glossary with investment terms; useful for know-nothings like me.

Admittedly, the app crashed on me twice. However, it saved all of my changes and worked fine upon opening it again. The design, along with the staggering amount of information it provides, makes this one a great free download.

Insider Trades [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Organize, Present with Impeccable Preparation Thanks to Peak Meetings HD

Price: $9.99     Score: 8/10     By A. Papachristosbadge appstore sm Organize, Present with Impeccable Preparation Thanks to Peak Meetings HD

The well prepared tend to be the be presenters.  They know exactly what to say, when to say it and the precise wording that will get their point across clearly, concisely and professionally.  However, there is no one correct way to prepare for any given situation.  How you organize your thoughts all depends on personal preference.  For those who truly have a hard time gathering their ideas, Peak Meetings HD by Creating Thunder, Inc provides an easy-to-use template for multiple types of meetings, allowing you to plot out your topics and goals every time.

When you begin, you may first want to explore the Guides provided as a means for exploring the seven different meeting types you might choose from when picking a template.  The meeting types include, Basic, Brainstorming, Informational, Planning, Problem Solving, Review and Update.  By breaking your meetings into such categories, Peak Meetings HD hopes to help you plan accordingly and properly so you will achieve your desired goals.  Each sample will give you a general idea of how you should approach the template yourself.  Under each sample, you will find a completed template that provides insight into the purpose of each tab – Profile, Background, Ideas, Analysis and Actions.

To begin filling in your own template, return to the main screen and tap the New button, which will allow you to pick the type of meeting, create a title and log your goal.  You will then be able to customize your outline to look just like the Guide templates you previously examined.  Even if you hardly record anything, Peak Meetings HD will act as a useful guide to gathering you thoughts in a coherent, sensible fashion.  Plus, users can users can conveniently search through all of their entered information by using the Search button or looking through the Lists, which are organized by Date, Project, Title or Type.

Unfortunately, Peak Meetings HD’s price tag isn’t quite as simple as its layout.  While I do truly believe that this application offers a beautiful, clean interface that makes plotting out one’s goals much easier than the typical note-taking application or a plain pad and pen, I strongly suggest that users evaluate their need for such an application before spending a decent amount of money.

Surely, they say you need to spend money to make money, but many are just as capable of organizing themselves as described with the everyday office supplies they’ve got lying around.  This application holds much promise, and may find a wider array of customers if the price were lowered even just a fraction.  For those who want to test Peak Meetings HD, I highly recommend downloading the Lite version, which affords you the same conveniences, though only allowing you to save five meetings at once. And for those serious about organizing their thoughts and executing meetings with a newfound grace they simply can’t achieve on paper, this may just be the most worthwhile $9.99 you’ll spend.

Peak Meetings HD [iTunes Link] requires iPhone OS 3.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Jot Down You Day-to-Day Thoughts with Journal Diary Pro

Price: $4.99*    Score: 9/10    By A. Papachristosbadge appstore sm Jot Down You Day to Day Thoughts with Journal Diary Pro

We live in a world where everyone longs to record every significant moment in their life, whether with words or images, as a way of preserving something they can never get back.  We post thoughts, comments and photographs all over the Internet, as if to bring some meaning to our lives by sharing our joy with everyone else.  With Journal Diary Pro by Sulaba Inc, users can record all these moments with the written word, voice recordings or video, allowing them to decide which items shall be shared and which shall remain private.

Upon startup, users will see a simple menu that lays out the various features Journal Diary Pro has to offer.  The Diary button allows users to record their thoughts via written word.  Users can create an unlimited number of entries for any given day.  With the Media button, users can immortalize any moment with a video or voice recording, using this function to record anything from a concert segment to a classroom lecture.  The Events button allows users to input important dates they wish to remember with the option of allowing Push notifications around the time of the particular event.  The Vault also expands Journal Diary Pro’s usefulness by allowing users to password protect their important information, such as bank account numbers and passwords for various accounts.

With the Settings button, users can further protect their entire journal, choosing to create a password that will not allow anyone to look at even the most basic information.  Users will also enjoy the fact that they can backup their entries by sending them via email or exporting them.  The Social Buzz aspect allows users to connect to Facebook or Twitter and share their thoughts and memories with their entire Friends list, while the GPS Locator (when turned on) will mark each individual entry with the place it was written.  In fact, the Settings are so comprehensive that users can go as far as selecting their preferred font and size!

Journal Diary Pro offers much more than most journal applications usually do.  Not only can users record their day-to-day thoughts in all sorts of ways, but they may also maintain a calendar of events and store important information safely, making this a three-in-one application.  Normally, users would have to buy each of these conveniences separately.  Plus, with such versatility, nearly everyone can find some use for Journal Diary Pro.  And, if you don’t know how to use a certain feature, the comprehensive Help button provides a guide to learning every aspect beautifully.
