Rainbowtail is a magical fairytale world match-3 puzzle game with helpful pets and a fun twist.

Available for free, Rainbowtail, by Minidragon, combines colorful pets with the match-3 concept for a charming take on a popular gaming concept.


As mentioned above, Rainbowtail is a new variation of the match-3 game.

Specifically, instead of just having players complete levels by matching a certain number of gem sets correctly by shape or color, the creators of Rainbowtail have integrated a fun RPG element to their version of the game as well.

Players in this app set out on an adventure involving little “pets.” These pets have different powers which can be used to complete matching challenges more quickly, and a storyline unfolds throughout the app as players advance through the levels.

Rainbowtail also features a way to keep connected with friends through an option to link your account to your Facebook account.

Unlike most other match-3 challenges, Rainbowtail is played at a very relaxed pace; the focus of the game seems to be more on making correct matches than on getting them done within a very short time frame.

This slower pace might seem boring to anyone who enjoys the time-rushed frenetic pace of other match-3 options, but it will definitely appeal to players who enjoy relaxed problem solving as well as beginners to the match-3 challenge concept.

Appearance and Layout:

With bright colors and mythical creatures, Rainbowtail’s appearance is best described as “cheery.”

These sparkling colors make making correct matches easy to do, and the fun little pets along the way keep things entertaining as well.

The layout of Rainbowtail, however, is not entirely intuitive and took a little while to figure out; since this match-3 game also doubles up as an adventure RPG, dominating the levels and figuring out just what to do when you’re first starting out takes a little time.

At the same time, once you have figured out how to start off the game, the in-app instructions for each step past that are pretty clear, making Rainbowtail a satisfying and enjoyable gaming experience.


The free price of this game puts it on a comparable playing field with many other match-3 games, since these popular apps also tend to be available for free themselves.

Rainbowtail, however, benefits by not just being a clone of existing match-3 games. To the developer’s credit it changes things up by offering a fun twist on the match-3 concept.

It distinguishes itself by not requiring players to do things as quickly as possible like most other match-3 games, and also by having a fun storyline that keeps things ever-changing.

Overall, while this game may bore those who want a fast-paced game, it will thrill gamers interested in a more relaxed match-3 gaming experience.

Staying on top of the news can be a daunting task. There certainly isn’t a shortage of news services and sites for you to look through, but it can be difficult to find one that fits your preferences and style. That’s where Trigger comes in.

Developed by MobiusBobs Inc., Trigger is an incredibly useful free news app for iPhone that lets you easily customize your reading experience.

It helps you find articles you’re actually interested in and also be one of the first people to read about a newsworthy item.

Concept and Functionality:

Personally I love news apps that compile articles from all around the web. No single news source can capture every single headline, and apps like Trigger allow you to customize your reading experience so you’re really only seeing what interests you.

Setting up an account with the app is incredibly easy and once you’re in, you can begin browsing all of the articles that Trigger has compiled.

One of the things I really like about Trigger is that the app tries to stay one step ahead of other news sources by predicting which articles and topics will begin trending.

This keep you, the reader, on top of the latest news without having to hear about it from sources like Facebook.

When it comes to usability, I think Trigger is incredibly easy to navigate and use.

It offers plenty of great features without a cluttered interface or clunky navigation system. It takes a little while to familiarize yourself with the app, but everything is pretty much self-explanatory.

Overall, I can definitely see why Trigger has become so popular among the iPhone community. As I mentioned before, I love apps like this and I can definitely see myself using Trigger on a regular basis.

The best part about the app is that it’s not out to necessarily replace your favorite news app, but instead compliment it.


Trigger includes all of the usual features you’ve come to expect from news apps.

One of the things that the app focuses heavily on is social sharing, so users can easily share an article via Facebook and other social networks. There’s even a counter at the bottom of each article which shows how many times it has been shared.

Similar to Reddit, Trigger lets you upvote and downvote articles. This helps the community get an idea as to which articles are truly important and worth reading, which really contributes to the overall goal of the app; creating a custom reading experience that’s focused on news that matters.


Trigger is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There are no in-app purchases to worry about, nor are there any ads.

Overall, this is a fantastic news app that definitely keeps readers ahead of the curve when it comes to trending topics.

The 7 Best Music Apps for iPhone: A Million Ways to Get Your Groove On

The 7 Best Music Apps for iPhone
Written by Luke Patrick

What if we told you (yes, you) don’t have to wait any longer to start producing jaw-dropping, incredible music?

Better still, you can do it right now without needing a lot of complicated tools or knowledge?

What if we said you could do all of this Grammy-nominated action right from your iPhone, and without even leaving the coffee shop?

It sounds pretty fantastic, does it not?

Don’t believe us? Then peep these Top 7 Best Music Apps for iPhone! To get all the details and more, just scroll on down below the break.


spotify1a. Spotify (iPhone, iPad, Free) – Don’t give us that look! If you’re going to be making music on your iOS device, you’re going to want to hear some of it first.

At least, we sincerely hope you’re looking for influences! Otherwise, you’ll likely end up the laughing stock of BandCamp.

SoundCloud - Music & Audio

SoundCloud – Music & Audio

But no matter what, Spotify offers a free, easy-to-use option that enables the user to listen to just about anything that’s ever been made ever.

To us, that is very much a useful part of the music-making process.


soundcloud1b. SoundCloud (iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Free) –  Likewise, if you’re going to be making music you’ll probably want a convenient way to post it as well.

This is made a whole lot easier using SoundCloud.

It’s been the gold-standard in track sharing and social musical interaction since day one.


propellerhead2. Take Creative Vocal Recorder (iPhone, Free) – Representing one of a couple entries by famed music company Propellerhead, Take is a phenomenal way to turn your iPhone into a glorified four-track recorder.

It offers a couple of different tracks to layer down sound with, be that vocals, guitars, or other such instruments.

Not only that, but several handy filters are included, some specific to those sounds.

In this way, you can bang, whack and wail your way to a complete demo in a matter of only minutes. How cool is that?


djay3. djay 2 for iPhone (iPhone, Apple Watch, $2.99) – I have spent so much more time with this application than I’d probably be willing to admit.

djay 2 for iPhone

djay 2 for iPhone

The app is incredibly easy to use, though getting the hang of deejaying in a virtual environment will likely take you as much time as it would in real life.

Still, this free edition of the incredible, pro-level dj mixer will have you remixing, scratching, looping and burning your way to success.

We really can’t stress enough how fun this title is. Just grab any two songs off your phone, and then have at.

As a fair warning, however, a remix of the Brady Bunch theme song and “Don’t Stop Believing” will not be a hit.


starmaker4. StarMaker: Sing + Video + Auto-Tune (iPhone, iPad, Free) – Want to give your voice that T-Pain effect? Want to do it without resorting to expensive equipment or complicated ProTools setups?

Then step on up, cowboy, because StarMaker has got you covered!

This delightful entry allows you to record yourself singing any number of highly popular songs, and then tune it up to your heart’s content.

Not only that, but you can then ensure the whole world sees you!

It’s a quick, rapid-fire kind of celebrity that might just lead to a record deal. (Disclaimer: It probably won’t, but then again, you never do know!”


garageband5. GarageBand (iPhone, iPad, $4.99) – A lot like djay, I don’t entirely want to disclose how much time I have spent here.



GarageBand is the original music making powerhouse for iOS. It comes with a trunkload of near-authentic musical instruments for you to bang on, as well as a set of strict but useful equalization tools.

Not to mention the handily easy-to-use track editor, or the effects wheel.

And considering the price tag has dropped to a downright silly $5, there’s little to no excuse for not having GarageBand on your iPhone or iPad.

If you intend to make music on iOS, this is a must have.


musicmaker6. Music Maker Jam (iPhone, iPad, Free) – Now it’s time to start bringing it on home with some apps designed to up your music-making game to the producer level!

The first in this category is Music Maker Jam, which a lot like edjing, attempts to make complicated music production a snap on your iOS device.

It enables users to pick from a variety of genres, and then make detailed, equalized music without much effort.

You can add your own voice, adjust rhythms and sounds, and produce a final mix to be proud of. In a lot of ways, it’s the GarageBand for iPhone you’ve always wanted.


flstudio7. FL Studio Mobile (iPhone, $14.99) – Lastly, but certainly not least, we have this behemoth music editor.

FL Studio Mobile

FL Studio Mobile

It brings the whole thing home for us, allowing users an insanely detailed look at the realm of audio engineering.

You can adjust tones, shift pitches, add beats, arrange tracks, and generally do just about anything else you’d expect from a full-service music-editing suite.

Its desktop counterparts are fairly accurately depicted here, creating an environment that’s lushly designed, feature-packed, and ready for any budding Moby to have a crack at.

There’s a free demo version for anyone to try, though the full whammy is easily a steal at $20.

If you’re deadly serious about making music on the iPhone platform, there is no better avenue to explore than this one right there.

Live Life on the Edge with It’s Killing Time

It’s Killing Time is an exciting new game/eBook hybrid that places players right in the middle of the action of an intense story.

Available for $3.99 through the iTunes Store, this app makes you in control of how the rest of the story unravels.


Unlike most stories where you simply are a passive reader of the action, It’s Killing Time, from Choice of Games LLC, gives readers an interactive role in the storyline.

Specifically, through this story-game, readers are regularly given decisions they must make at various points within the game; their decisions at these points are then what directs the remainder of the story. Similar in concept to the popular “Choose Your Own Adventure” children’s stories, this story-reader format definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat.

However, unlike in the popular children’s series, It’s Killing Time is just as violent as its name implies and is not recommended for young audiences.

As a whole, I found the flow, suspense, and writing of this app to be very impressive.

The pages flowed seamlessly together, with minimal lag; and re-starting your story at any point is easy to do as well, allowing for optimal replay value.

Appearance and Layout:

It's Killing Time iPhone Game

The format of this app is excellent. The developer’s choice to keep decisions in a multiple choice format to guide your story keeps things very streamlined.

Minimal time needs to be spent figuring out how to navigate the app, which allows users to easily jump right into the story.

Fonts are readily legible, even on smaller screens. While this app does not offer any graphics within the story, the writing is vivid enough to evoke the imagination of most readers adequately.

Users will appreciate the added touch of a drop down menu that allows for you to easily reset your assassin’s tale at any time.


As mentioned above, It’s Killing Time is currently available for $3.99.

Pricier than many apps and yet still less expensive than most digital books, this app would arguably have more appeal if it were a little less expensive.

While readers who are already familiar with the Choice of Games series will probably not even think twice before purchasing this one, others who are not as familiar with the app’s concept might be less inclined to spend so much on it.

Overall, It’s Killing Time is an app that will definitely appeal to its target audience, but its price tag might be a limiting factor for increasing the numbers in that audience.

Gems Smash: Be Prepared to “Crush” It

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

Throughout our tenure here at the iPhone App Review, we have seen many trends come and go. Not the least of these is the match-three genre of iPhone gaming.

It expanded with a vengeance several years back, and has only been gaining more and more ground ever since. And we absolutely, positively can not get enough of it!

If that’s got you interested, then head on down below the break for our full review of a new one that’s sure to make your daily play list.

Gems Smash is an endlessly endearing and addictive game that shares a lot with its forebearers, but it is still every bit as exciting and energizing as you’re hoping.

As promised, find the whole review contained below.

Concept and Gameplay

As you might expect from a review with the title given above, you can expect a lot of Candy Crush style gameplay out of Gems Smash.

However, it would be wholly unfair to say that one is a rip off of the other.

In fact, Gems Smash, from Babies Fun Technology Co., Ltd., offers a totally different set of desirables, and plenty of reason to see it as its own, unique title.

For instance, the game has you doing a whole lot more than just matching up items to knock them out in combos. Though, you will be spending a lot of time doing just that. In addition, however, you can also enjoy the game’s copious, roleplaying-esque mechanics.

You see, all those points you accumulate are more than just glittering trophies. Using what you’ve earned, you can unlock additional lives, combination boosters, and several more delightful fun-enhancers.

These also include several area-of-effect options, producing wicked multiple blasts, earning you even more points and glory along the way.

Lastly, the game introduces a “battle” effect. Think of this as a race to win more points than your opponent. It’s fun and enlivening, and at the very least, it offers a fresh take on a very well-trodden field.

Graphics and Layout

It also helps that Gems Smash looks as good as it does.

This is not a cheap knock-off of a much more popular title. Rather, it is clear the developers have thought a great deal about cultivating a cute, inviting air for the player to enjoy.

The items you’ll be collecting are vibrant and easily spotted, while the various characters you’ll encounter are equally so.

Not to mention the fact the game is so easy to pick up on! We hardly had any trouble at all picking up the pieces. Though, if you become confused, Gems Smash is more than happy to walk you through the basics again.

It’s impossible to mess-up, which makes the fun contained here are the more real.

Overall Value

Better still, Gems Smash is completely free to play in the iTunes App Store. Now, we’re particularly cheap, but that should be the kind of bargain that appeals to just about any gamer.

No matter if you’re an existing fan of the genre, or just someone looking to have a bit of fun this afternoon, Gems Smash is a solid winner.

The app garners a 5 star rating from us, as well as our hearty recommendation. Those in the market should look no further than this gem (pun intended) of an app.
