Simulation games are always a blast to play, mainly because they allow you to do so many different things without leaving the comfort of your computer or your couch. From being a pilot to farming and even driving trucks, anything is truly possible when it comes to the simulation game genre.

Euro Train Simulator is a total blast to play.

It’s a relatively new game for iPhone and iPad that allows you to conduct scenarios in a variety of different trains, during different times of day, and in ever-changing weather conditions.

Concept and Gameplay:

The goal of Euro Train Simulator, developed by Highbrow Interactive, is to safely move passengers from one station to another as fast as possible. While speed is always a good thing, players have to be mindful of traffic signals, speed limits, and other hazards.

In career mode, Euro Train Simulator allows players to progress through an assortment of stages, earning experience points along the way. When selecting a stage, you have a chance to get a preview of it on the right-hand side of the screen. This area allows you to see which train you’ll be conducting, the number of stops on your route, weather conditions, and the time of day you’ll be departing.

When it comes to graphics and playability, I was pleasantly surprised to see how much work was put into the atmosphere of Euro Train Simulator.

From realistic passengers moving about the train station to accurate sounds and situations, the level of detail is impressive. The game is also very easy to get the hang of thanks to a helpful visual guidance system.

Features:

Along with great graphics and realistic scenarios, Euro Train Simulator includes a few extra features that make the game even better. For example, players have a variety of buttons on the left side of the game screen for actions such as toggling lights, changing camera angles, sounding the horn, and pressing the emergency brake.

There’s also a quick play mode that allows players to select a train and customize the scenario by changing the route, weather conditions, and time of day.

Quick play mode is great for when you’ve completed all scenarios or you’d like to test your conductor skills in custom situations.

I also want to mention that the developers are planning on releasing more content in the very near future, including new routes, trains, door control functionality, and realistic derailment scenarios.

Value:

Euro Train Simulator is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. The game is supported by ads, which are disabled if players upgrade to Tier 2, which also unlocks additional trains and routes. This upgrade is only $0.99, which is definitely worth it if you enjoy the game.

Overall, Euro Train Simulator is a fun simulation game that’s both realistic and challenging. Players will enjoy zipping from station to station as quickly and safely as possible.

Last Minute Travel Deals

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Traveling to a new city can be fun, but only if you plan ahead. There’s nothing worse than being stuck and having to pay through the nose simply because of something last-minute.

Last Minute Travel Deals is an incredibly handy travel app for iPhone and iPad is perfect for last minute plans or that quick get-away and features deals on airfare, car rentals, hotels, and attractions.

Concept and Functionality:

While there certainly isn’t a shortage of travel apps on the App Store, many of them tend to be hit or miss. Plus, quite a few of them don’t even include deals; they’re only meant for finding accommodations.

Developed by Travel Holdings, Last Minute Travel Deals goes above and beyond by sifting through accommodations to provide users with great deals.

To take advantage of everything that Last Minute Travel Deals offers, you can optionally create an account with the service or proceed as a guest. Next, choose the city you’d like to find deals for and explore the app to find what you’re looking for.

Unlike many other travel apps, Last Minute Travel Deals is incredibly easy to navigate and works very quickly. This is primarily because it doesn’t have that much information to sift through seeing as the app only shows deals (for the most part).

As someone who has used travel apps in the past with mixed experiences, I can honestly say that Last Minute Travel Deals is a must-have app for anyone who tends to make plans at the last minute. Not only is it incredibly easy to use, but it includes everything you need for a trip.

Features:

Flight finders, hotel apps, and car rental apps are all over the place, but it’s rare to find a travel app that also includes attractions. Last Minute Travel Deals features a database of over 10,000 activities and over 4,500 cities.

This is a very impressive number, and it means that you’re likely to find something to do no matter where you are.

However, the best feature of Last Minute Travel Deals is the ability to book directly through the app in order to take advantage of the service’ s special deals.

Value:

Last Minute Travel Deals is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases to worry about, membership fees, or anything of the sort.

What you see is what you get, and what you get is an incredible travel app that provides you with tens of thousands of deals around the world. I definitely recommend checking out the app if you’re interested in saving money on travel accommodations and activities.

DeStressify PRO
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

DeStressify PRO provides helpful information along with audio and video exercises from noted experts wrapped in a well-designed and easy-to-use tool that helps users manage their stress.

Featuring customizable anti-stress plans, this app helps users regain control over the stress in their lives.

Features:

As indicated by its name, DeStressify PRO’s features are all geared towards helping consumers combat unwanted stress.

Developed by Stress Refuge, Inc., this app does this by providing a convenient location where users can quickly and easily find guides to, according to the developer, scientifically proven stress relieving techniques, ranging from power breathing to happiness visualization.

The app also lets users create customizable schedules for creating time in their days to practice these stress relieving techniques, and the app can be set up to create reminders for them to follow as well. If you’re not sure where to begin, it starts you off with a core plan of over a dozen key practices to get you moving in the right direction.

An extensive collection of both video and audio recordings for managing stress is also incorporated into the app, and users can customize their in-app home screens to quickly provide links to their favorite features if desired.

Personally, one of the features of DeStressify PRO that I found to be particularly impressive was its inclusion of nutritional factors as part of managing a stress-free life; often this part of one’s lifestyle is ignored, but DeStressify PRO provided me with a good reminder that getting good nutrition can be very helpful in managing stress levels.

Appearance and Layout:

DeStressify PRO iPhone App

DeStressify PRO offers an impressive variety of features that could make the app difficult to work with.

Thankfully, however, navigation through DeStressify PRO is a beautifully easy task. The designers of the app did an excellent job of incorporating its many features into a fairly simple layout that users will benefit from every time they use it.

Additionally, the graphics used throughout this app are also clean and clear; good quality photos keep things bright and engaging to the eyes, and all icons used within DeStressify PRO are easy to understand as well.

Value:

At $5.99, DeStressify PRO is one of the pricier apps in the iTunes Store. However, if it works for users, this price is minute compared to the cost of other more popular stress-relieving strategies (like professional massages or meditation classes).

At the same time, it is worth mentioning that one part of this app simply provides a convenient resource for quickly locating a variety of stress-relieving techniques for your lifestyle. While the information contained within DeStressify PRO is no doubt helpful, of course, there are a wide variety of websites that also provide useful materials.

It’s also worth noting that there is a free version of this well-designed app. So if your hesitating to check it out, try the free version and then upgrade if you find it helpful.

Overall, this is a polished app that will mostly appeal to anyone who is looking for a combination of information regarding stress management and a bit of a personalized coaching and tracking system for making sure that they follow through with practicing those techniques.

Video Rewards for iOS Lets You Earn Gift Cards by Watching Ads

Video Rewards – Earn Prizes By Watching App & Movie Trailers
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Video Rewards is a free app that’s great for turning some of your downtime into gift cards. For iPhone and iPad, it allows you to earn credits by watching videos, referring friends, and completing surveys.

Developed by Flashpoint Media LLC, this app is great for anyone who would like to passively earn cool rewards like gift cards.

Concept and Functionality:

In order to begin using Video Rewards, you have to create an account with the service. This is pretty quick and easy, and you only have to provide a couple basic things like an email address and a password. Once your account is set up, you can begin watching videos and earning credits.

One of the things I like about Video Rewards is that the app is organized and it provides users with multiple ways to earn credits. For example, you could watch a few videos, complete a survey, and send out a few referral links via social media. All of these tasks will help you are credits.

I do want to point out the fact that Video Rewards offers a fairly low payout. Videos pay five credits and usually last 15 or 30 seconds. In order to redeem anything, you’ll have to accumulate at least 5000 credits, which is the minimum for a $2.50 Amazon gift card. To put that into perspective, you’d have to watch at least 1000 ads.

Features:

Video Rewards iPhone App

Video Rewards is pretty straightforward, but there are a few extra features that are worth mentioning. The most important feature, and one that we greatly appreciate, is the fact that the app doesn’t require you to enter any personally identifiable information in order to redeem rewards.

Everything is handled via PayPal (if you choose to redeem the PayPal gift card) or by virtual gift card code.

As I’ve pointed out before, Video Rewards goes above and beyond rewarding users for watching ads. I really do like the fact that the app offers flexibility when it comes to earning credits, but I really wish there wasn’t such a massive gap between payout and reward requirements.

Value:

Video Rewards is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

This is actually quite a competitive space, with Perk TV and AppTrailers being a couple of the others that compete with Video Review. The edge that Video Review has is that they offer unlimited offers.

Users don’t have to worry about forking over any cash, but the app will take a valuable chunk of time if you’re serious about earning enough credits to redeem gift cards.

Overall, Video Rewards is definitely a legitimate way to passively earn gift cards by watching ads, filling out surveys, and referring friends. However, be prepared to put in a lot of effort.

Sharing important moments and events via social media is fun, but it’s difficult to do so in moderation. Plus, you can’t always control who can see what you’re sharing or when you share it.

dripthat is an innovative new iPhone app that gives users a whole new way to create and share photos and videos in “drips”.

Developed by dripthat, LLC, the app features extensive control over content, awesome editing tools, and a cool new way to share important moments with friends, family, and the world.

Concept and Functionality:

dripthat is much more than a photo app, it’s a social networking app that allows users to create drips of content and have ultimate control over what they share. Drips can include photos and short video clips, which is something that’s not only awesome, but quite unique.

I really like the fact that dripthat is easy to navigate, especially for first time users. Setting up the app is a breeze and there’s even a brief tutorial that helps walk you through the basics of the app.

Best of all creating drips is super easy, and you can do so on the spot or by uploading media from your camera roll.

When it comes to social networking and sharing, dripthat definitely has its stuff together. I know of many apps that try to do the same thing, but none of them come close to the feature-rich options in this app.

Plus, the concept of “drips” is pretty neat, as it means you’re less likely to overload friends by uploading a bunch of photos and videos at once.

Features:

dripthat comes with plenty of awesome features to make your social networking experience even more awesome. For example, the app supports control over who your content is shared with, when it’s shared, and much more.

You can even protect drips from being saved/screen-shotted.

Also, dripthat comes with built-in editing tools so you can tweak everything before you share it with the world. Even if you don’t feel like sharing with everyone, the app offers an unprecedented amount of control over your drip’s audience.

As with most social sharing apps, users can easily communicate and interact with each other in dripthat. From liking photos to sharing public drips and leaving comments, the app definitely inspires social interaction.

Value:

dripthat is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. When it comes down to it, this app is a fantastic standalone social network that offers unique ways to share photos and videos with friends, family, and more.

Plus, I really like the fact that dripthat offers tons of control over media. I highly recommend checking out dripthat if you love sharing moments with the world and you’re looking for a cool new way to do so.

BlastBall MAX
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

BlastBall MAX is a challenging new game that forces players to think on their toes to solve ever-changing challenges.

Developed by Monkube Ltd., it’s currently available for $2.99 through the iTunes Store.

Features:

BlastBall MAX is a puzzle game that will delight users of all skill levels.

As indicated by its name, BlastBall MAX challenges players to get at least five similarly colored balls in a row in order to “blast” them and receive points.

However, doing this seemingly simple task is easier said than done, as twists to the game include placing balls, sliding and rotating tiles, and strategizing how to use special balls with their particular powers. New players to the game are treated to a set of simple instructions to guide them.

I found the level of gameplay to be appropriately challenging; the app got progressively more complex the further I moved through it.

As a whole, BlastBall MAX offers puzzle-lovers a fun, new challenging app to master.

BlastBall MAX iPhone Game

While it probably won’t appeal to anyone who prefers fast-paced, time sensitive puzzles, BlastBall MAX will definitely be loved by anyone who appreciates less stressful, slower-paced thinking games.

Appearance and Layout:

This app features a clean, user-friendly screen at all times. Graphics are simple but appropriate, and the instructions are always provided in easily legible fonts, even on smaller screens.

BlastBall’s color scheme is bright but not blinding, and the in-app animations are perfectly pleasing as well. “Blasting” balls sets off a satisfying chain of reactions, and once you’ve figured out how to use the different balls/powers wisely, you’ll find yourself entertained by even more fun little animations.

Overall, the appearance of BlastBall MAX is just as great as its gameplay; both aspects of this game will leave players well satisfied.

Value:

As mentioned previously, BlastBall MAX can be purchased for $2.99 through the iTunes Store. While this game definitely features great challenges and equally awesome graphics, this price still seems a little steep, particularly when considering the many “free” puzzle games currently in the iTunes Store today.

Even though BlastBall MAX doesn’t have any in-app advertisements cluttering up your screen or interrupting your games, we’d like to see the price come down a bit.

This would no doubt drive even greater uptake than this well designed and implemented puzzler has already has enjoyed. After playing it we can honestly say it’s worth every penny but the fact is it’s hard for most to purchase a game for a few bucks over trying out other less expensive options.
