Shade Combo is a fun game that brings a unique twist to traditional color-matching games. Offered for free through the iTunes Store, this app challenges your problem-solving skills.

Features:

Shade Combo’s name really lends an accurate description of the app’s concept of gameplay. Specifically, the challenge of this game by Yusuf Turk is to pair up game pieces of the same shade.

Once paired, the shade of the combined game piece becomes a new shade, and this new shade must be paired with another matching shade. Because of this, the game boards in Shade Combo are always evolving, leaving players with the challenge of creating new matching shades within the board that allow for more matches to be made. Combinations of the darkest shades removes them from the playing board.

Games can be played in a timed or an untimed mode, and scoring certain combinations rewards players with “powerups” as well. I found Shade Combo to be a refreshing alternative to other color/shape matching games. It’s easy to understand yet challenging enough to keep you entertained.  

Appearance and Layout:

The appearance of this app is very simplistic and this lends charm to the game. Since determining accurate shade matchings is the main idea of the app, you don’t waste any time figuring out differences between the different playing piece shapes at all.

Still, the details put into these little pieces is also arguably impressive; I found the levels with ducks and squirrels to be particularly well done. In-app scores are always clearly displayed at the top of your screen, and getting around the app’s layout is no challenge at all.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Shade Combo is a free app. In-app ads are scattered throughout, but I did not feel like these ads popped up too frequently; ads do not detract from the appeal of the gameplay.

Getting the idea of how to play Shade Combo takes no time at all, but mastering a strategy to actually get high scores within the app takes more time. Overall, this game is an excellent addition to the app collection of anyone who loves a good, puzzling, ever-changing challenge.

shadeqrShade Combo requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.

Circlify iPhone Game

Circlify iPhone Game

Circlify is a fun and challenging iOS puzzle game that you simply cannot ignore. This game from WebAlive is astonishingly simple, yet quite addictive. This game requires correct timing and deft skill to maintain concentration for a length of time which makes it hard to put down.

Concept & Gameplay:

The concept is not unique, most notably seen in the ultra-popular Color Switch. In Circlify, the spherical maze attempts to swallow you up and you must find the exits as they become evident.

Circlify iPhone Game

Circlify iPhone Game

This game is called a hypnotic puzzle because the circle is constantly rotating. That can be both frustrating and equally exciting and entertaining. The gameplay is well crafted, with easy one-tap controls. You just need to wait for the right moment and you will get the points, but it is challenging!

Features:

In terms of features, this game is a little limited, but it isn’t as annoying as other games of its type. The environment of play is really colorful and smooth. The whole design is slick and that creates a relaxing atmosphere while playing. You can easily get hooked to the game because of the simple goals and features.

Circlify can be enjoyed by anyone. However, I feel like this game will be mostly enjoyed by the youngest population. As an adult, I lost interest in the game really fast, even though I liked it. I think that this game should feature a reward system, powerups and definitely some achievements. These features are great suggestions for the next update of Circlify.

Overall Value:

This game is definitely worth a try. Even with its simplicity it has a challenging element.  Many users are complaining that the advanced stages are hard and that there should be additional features. I’ve experienced that as well, but this could very well be the best feature for some players.

I think that the game has huge potential. It is well designed with perfect color selection and typography. However, there are a lot of things that need to be done so the game can go to the next level. It is a fun way to spend your free time, but needs a little more work and features to become amazing!

Audials Radio Is a Must-Have Music App for iOS

Music is an integral part of many people’s daily routine. From driving to work to walking between classes, we always seem to be listening to music. There are tons of streaming services available and the option to purchase songs and albums, but what about the good old radio?

Audials Radio is a marvelous app that features live radio streams and podcasts. It has a ton of features that even the most popular streaming apps do not have, which is truly amazing.

Concept and Functionality:

Even though I subscribe to a music streaming service, I still like to listen to the radio. Audials Radio by Audials AG isn’t the first app of its kind to let you listen to live radio on your phone, but it’s definitely one of the better apps I’ve come across.

This app is super easy to navigate and understand. Finding radio stations to listen to is a breeze and I really like the fact that you can search for stations by songs, genre or country of origin. The built-in media player is also great and includes the standard navigation features you’ve come to expect from a music app.

Where Audials Radio really shines is podcasts. Unlike many other streaming apps, Audials Radio includes full podcast functionality and a massive organized database for you to sort through.

The only drawback to podcasts is the inability to subscribe to them (from what I could find), but it’s great for those who want to listen in now and again.

Audials Radio iPhone App Review

Audials Radio is loaded to the brim with awesome features. My favorite feature is “Car Mode”, where the interface becomes significantly larger and easier to see.

It’s also worth mentioning that this app features landscape support, which is something that is noticeably absent in rival apps like Spotify and Pandora.

Lack of landscape mode is my biggest gripe with the aforementioned apps and I’m really glad that Audials Radio didn’t overlook this simple yet awesome feature.

Value:

Audials Radio is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. I couldn’t find any in-app purchases or ads, which is even more incredible.

If you listen to the radio on a regular basis, I can’t recommend Audials Radio enough. It’s even great for podcasts and recording audio for later listening.

Share Your Thoughts Anonymously with PostYo

PostYo in an interesting new app that offers users a completely anonymous way to share their thoughts.

A free service by Ilgos, LLC, this app is a different take on free thought sharing.

Features:

PostYo allows users to make anonymous posts to the app’s platform. Posts can then be voted “up” or “down” by the general PostYo community.

No user names are needed, and you can easily sort posts by “new” or “top,” as well as viewing your own past posts. Posts can be on any topic, and some users seem to enjoy posting stories in two and three part series.

However, app policies state that bullying, illegal activities, and posts revealing the identification of others will not be tolerated. Posts can be removed, and offending users can also be blocked by the app’s makers as well.

Scrolling through PostYo was a somewhat interesting experience; it felt like an anonymous Twitter service, only without giving you any say on which people you wanted to hear from. Because of this, it felt difficult to feel engaged with the app.

While this app might appeal to people looking for an anonymous platform to voice their thoughts, it may not appeal to a broad audience.

Appearance and Layout:

PostYo iPhone App Review

PostYo has a simple layout. This really makes sense, since getting started to use the app is an extremely streamlined process (as an anonymous app, there is no need to create user names and the such).

Navigation through PostYo is intuitive, with clearly marked tabs for sorting through PostYo posts. Graphics are kept to a relative minimum, with text being the main focus. Fonts are easily readable on small screens, and the overall color scheme doesn’t detract from the purpose of the app.

As a whole, PostYo’s appearance and layout are definitely acceptable for an app of its type, but they also don’t stand out as exceptionally impressive.

Value:

PostYo, as mentioned above, is a free app. However, while the concept of this app is to provide a completely anonymous thought-sharing platform, the Internet has long shown the potential problems with complete anonymity.

PostYo’s makers promise to take down bullying posts or posts promoting illegal activities, however, a cursory scroll through of the latest posts showed a frustratingly high frequency of racial slurs and other questionable content.

While having a free, open place to share thoughts is a nice idea in concept, the makers of PostYo have their work cut out for them if they truly want to keep posting boards clean and friendly to all people groups.

Editor’s Note: update 1.5 was released yesterday and it allows for posting photos as well.

Planet Surfer iPhone Game

Planet Surfer iPhone Game

Planet Surfer is a fun new fast-paced puzzle adventure game.

Available for the Android and iOS smart phone users alike, this is a simple game and can be very addictive. The developers have taken the necessary measures to make gameplay look and feel interesting.

Planet Surfer was released to the market by WebAlive, which has released several addictive games to smart phone owners. It can also be considered as the latest release from the Mascooters.

Planet Surfer is a very fast-paced game. The entire game is filled with split second decisions, quick wits and rocket-ships.

If you are interested in traveling through space, you may like to try Planet Surfer. In fact, this game is all about interplanetary exploration.

Planet Surfer iPhone Game

The main objective is to travel through space while exploring different planets. If you travel further, you will be able to gain more and more points. However, traveling through space may not be as easy a task as you think.

In playing this game, you will come across a wide variety of obstacles. You will need to jump from one planet to another within a very short period of time. Otherwise, the planets become out of reach and you will have to quit the game. This and other obstacles like avoiding space junk are what contributes to the addictive nature of the game.

In addition, you come across a lot of dead planets. If you crash into one of these, it is game over. On the other hand, players will be able to earn extra points in their journey by collecting star fragments.

These star fragments are strategically placed in tricky locations though. This makes the task of collecting them a little difficult. If players want to get farther into the game, they may opt to ignore the star fragments as it is easy to lose lives by trying to get them.

Moreover, players should keep in mind that space is unpredictable. In other words, players will not know what will happen next in this adventure.

Planet Surfer is a cool game that can be downloaded to any iOS or Android powered smart phone for free. There’s nothing much to complain about this game and its gameplay.

It is a low end game, but the graphics are decent enough to make things look interesting. Therefore, any person who is looking to kill some time should consider downloading Planet Surfer.

If you’re a fan of casino games such as slots and blackjack, you’re certainly in luck when it comes to selections on iTunes.

Of course it’s fun to play for virtual cash, but what if you could wager real money and pocket your winnings just like in a real casino?

Leo Vegas Casino is a fun and enticing game that allows players to bet and win real cash. That’s right; the allure of a real casino is available right on your iDevice with this game by LeoVegas Gaming Ltd.

Concept and Gameplay:

Before I get too far into the review I want to mention one important thing. Leo Vegas Casino isn’t available in all countries because not all countries allow true online casinos. This is great news for those in the UK and other countries where online gambling with real money is legal.

When testing Leo Vegas Casino for review, I noticed that the overall atmosphere is pretty similar to other virtual games. There is a wide assortment of slots, card games, and roulette. The graphics are decent but I didn’t notice anything too spectacular or out of the ordinary.

Unfortunately, I can’t speak from experience when it comes to the process of depositing and withdrawing winnings, but based on reviews from other users it seems that Leo Vegas Casino is very strict when it comes to allowing withdrawals.

They implement a lengthy process of collecting personal documents from users so don’t be surprised if you’re asked to jump through a few hoops if you win and want to cash out.

Leo Vegas Casino features an impressive variety of games for you to enjoy.

For example, there are over 100 various slot machines to play, which is a staggering amount considering many virtual currency casinos don’t even offer that many different varieties.

If you want to take the experience beyond your iDevice, you can even enjoy Leo Vegas Casino from the comfort of your computer.

This is a great feature for players who like the convenience of being able to play no matter where they are or what device they’re using.

Value:

Leo Vegas Casino is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. As I mentioned above, the game is only available in certain App Stores based on your country’s online gambling laws.

Overall, Leo Vegas Casino offers a great variety of online casino games for players to wager and win real money, but be prepared to jump through hoops to withdraw any winnings.
