 Access 2,500+ Newspapers on Your iDevice with PressReader

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

To be honest, I never really got into reading newspapers on a regular basis. These black and white paper monsters always seemed to make reading an almost impossible task, so I never really bothered.

Now that we’re in the high-tech age, I think the newspaper deserves a second look as a viable and reliable news source.

PressReader, developed by NewspaperDirect Inc, is the ideal app for accessing thousands of newspapers and magazines from around the world right on your iPhone and/or iPad.

Whether you’re looking for an easier way to access global news publications or you’re hoping to switch to digital newspapers altogether, PressReader is the app for you.

Knowing how difficult physical papers can be to read, the first thing I looked for in my review of PressReader was readability. After all, what good would the app be if it was just as cluttered as a real newspaper?

I was pleasantly surprised to find that even though users are presented with an image of the paper they’re reading, it’s incredibly easy to read individual articles.

All you have to do is tap the title of the article and PressReader does the rest by zooming in and displaying it on your screen. You can quickly and easily adjust font size, insert comments on articles, and truly make the reading experience your own.

Once I realized just how easy it is to browse newspapers with PressReader, I was eager to explore other features that the app offers. There is no shortage of cool things you can do with the app, including saving articles to Evernote and/or Instapaper for future reference and even sharing articles on Facebook and Twitter.

In terms of numbers, PressReader currently supports over 2,500 full-content newspapers from 100+ countries in 55+ languages. This means there’s a very fair chance that even your local newspaper is supported, not just major publications.

While it would take an eternity to highlight all of the features PressReader offers, I would have to say that my favorite is text-to-speech.

You can choose to have entire articles read to you just by pressing a button, which is fantastic for commuters who still want to catch up on the news while they’re driving. It’s not only convenient, but safe.

Naturally the narrator’s voice isn’t perfect, but it’s good enough to understand the article.

If you aren’t able to listen to an article immediately or you’re going to be away from the internet for a bit (like on a flight), PressReader allows you to download and save articles for offline reading.

Lastly, PressReader presents users with very useful search tools that help you find articles related to your topic across all supported publications.

PressReader is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. New users are able to read 7 newspapers for free, but after that they’ll need to purchase individual newspapers (costs vary) or a subscription, which is $29.99 per month when you buy it directly through PressReader and $33.99 in the App Store.

Though the price might seem high, PressReader is a fantastic option for anyone who reads the news, especially if your favorite paper is not readily available or if you like to read multiple papers per day. Plus it’s better for the environment!

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

What do you call that timeless act of receiving information with your eyes, and processing with the mind and heart? Oh yeah, reading. And you’re doing it right now. Ah, reading; the trusty old companion.

Even though we find that cinema has overtaken the once ubiquitous novel, and that digital space has begun to conquer paper pages around the globe, reading itself is still powerful and infinite.

Be it in English letters or hieroglyphics, reading is something that will exist forever (or at least until telepathic information absorption). With true homage to the power that is the reading, we present Reading Arena, from HeKu IT, an impeccably neat, powerful, and brilliant app that uses reading as the primary medium of gaming and competition.

Identify words and letters at lighting speeds to compete with your friends in Reading Arena. If you’re too slow, you’ll receive some hints from the app itself and the round will then end.

If you’re quick enough, you’ll find yourself at the top of the leader board, and as the envy of all your friends. Reading Arena is a thrilling, lightweight and compelling app that makes learning and competing an absolute delight. The fact that it’s based on the existing, and very successful, “Reading Trainer” app is also a big plus.

Features: star Reading Arena Turns Reading Into Fantastic Sportstar Reading Arena Turns Reading Into Fantastic Sportstar Reading Arena Turns Reading Into Fantastic Sportstar Reading Arena Turns Reading Into Fantastic Sportstar Reading Arena Turns Reading Into Fantastic Sport

This app features a few types of gameplay, all emphasizing letters and a need to pick out entire words, individual letters or patterns from lines and lines of text. A counter will begin to dwindle down and you’ll be forced to peruse all of the text as quickly as possible to stay competitive.

The app is free, ideal for young adults, and available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod. It allows you to challenge your friends or play alone. It is also available in a wide variety of languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. The game is extremely compact, and at only 42.8 MB demonstrates some impeccable power, polish and technique.

Gaming apps are a dime a dozen, but this app takes a timeless function and turns it into an incredible game. It has a “party mode” on the iPad so I can easily see Reading Arena being adapted into a board game, or simply being used on the iPad by an entire family.

It runs extremely well and is bright, dynamic and beautiful. An electric blue color scheme permeates the app throughout, and demonstrates true craftsmanship, with an ability to balance form and function in perfect harmony.

Cheers to the developers of this game! The game is free and is probably worth a $4.99 price tag at the very minimum.

A huge plus of Reading Arena is that it’s designed to be extremely replayable and never loses its full effect. We recommend this game to advanced learners, young adults, those who love the NYTimes Crossword Puzzle, and curious gamers who want to learn about different education apps and types gameplay.

The app runs extremely well and delivers on basically every front. If you’ve gotten through this review, then you can read like a champion. That means you’re prepared for the Reading Arena app and should stop reading and get to downloading right now!

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

Hmm, where to begin with this one? Dispair, from Siegfried Schulz-Giese, is an app that may be initially off-putting because of the titles undeniable similarity to the word “despair”. Given the official tagline, however, “do dispair, don’t despair“, the similarity is obviously quite intentional.

To be honest, though, without knowing more about it I am just about as likely to download an app called dispair, as I am an app called, “Feel Bad” or, “This Sucks”.

On the positive side, this app runs quite fluidly and offers some puzzling, gaming madness to the Mensa International demographic. This puzzle game isn’t your mix and match, align by order or color, crossword or typical teaser. It’s an above average brain teaser game for above average players.

This app gives you mind-twisting puzzles that only a fraction of users will be able to understand and have fun with. While practice will give you an advantage and you can eventually get the hang of this game, the general approach and gameplay makes this one a mixed boat at best.

Dispair is a highly challenging app that’s built in both English and German. You’ll find yourself sifting through some interesting patterns, colors and vibrations to match an order of given letters with a minimum amount of attempts.

The central point here is to figure out the order of the letters and their corresponding colors with the fewest attempts, in a format that looks somewhat like the Wheel of Fortune blank-slate of open letters.

While gaming, users can check for solutions via a “suitability check”, can save game results and compare with other dispair players. A certain niche demographic may really dig this game, but for most of us, it may cause more confusion than fun.

The app runs smoothly and opens and closes without a hitch. A wide variety of colors and motion animations demonstrate some extremely capable development.

At the same time, this app begs the question, why invent an app named “dispair” that only 10% of users may be able to understand and enjoy? If the app is engineered toward an extremely smart demographic, then that’s a noble cause, but I would cover my eyes before reading reviews in the Apple App Store.

We’ve given this app a mid-range rating because it is a new and unique puzzle game. It is quick, it is bright, and it is interesting. Still, the key metric is, “Is it fun?” and “How much will I play it?”. Personally I don’t know the answer to these two questions, so you’ll have to interpret this score as more of a question mark.

That being said, as puzzles go, this game definitely stands out from the crowd and so if this was a puzzle-focused site, and the rating was purely about the difficulty and sophistication of the puzzles, it would certainly deserve a much higher score.

Possibly because of this niche appeal the developers have provided three versions of the game; Full ($1.99), Light ($0.99) and Free. So, try it out and if you find it tickles that weird itch you have that most puzzle games can’t seem to scratch, you can opt for the version that suits you best.

Ark Duo—Earth Recon, from Steve Scott, is a space shooter game by Steve Scott. Available for $0.99 through the iTunes Store, or for free with ads, Ark Duo pits players against asteroids and aliens who wish to destroy a shuttle on its way back to earth.

This game is a simple yet fun approach to space shooters that features an “old school arcade” feel to it. Unlike many current iOS games that place a strong focus on speed, Ark Duo—Earth Recon provides players with challenges focused on navigating through obstacles at paces more directed by the players themselves.

Both shooting and navigating through flying obstacles (alien ships and asteroids) is accomplished through screen taps, and Ark Duo displays beautifully on both iPhones and iPads alike.

Game play in the app is seemingly endless, with the option of earning different spaceships or in-game power-ups through collecting enough coins. Ark Duo—Earth Recon players also have the option of registering on Gamecenter to compete against other players for the top spots in the app.

While the graphics of Ark Duo aren’t particularly intricate or impressive, they are still perfectly fitting for the old-school arcade feel of the game and should more than satisfy most iOS users who choose to try out Ark Duo—Earth Recon.

Getting around the app is also easy to do, with the layout being extremely straight forward and leaving me with no questions even on my first time trying out the app.

On-screen directions/information is kept to a minimum (with a simple icon for “coins collected” at the top left of the screen and a “pause” option towards the middle right), and this choice in layout is appreciated because it leaves game play completely free of any unnecessary distractions.

Overall, Ark Duo seems to be fairly reasonably priced; while there are certainly free apps on the market today that are arguably more complex or challenging, the price of Ark Duo is completely reasonable for the features that it offers. And keep in mind that you can try out the free version if you’re still not convinced.

Instant Rewards is an app by Flashpoint Media LLC that does exactly what its name indicates. Users of Instant Rewards can earn monetary rewards for doing simple tasks like completing surveys or viewing videos.

Features: star Make Money with Instant Rewards!star Make Money with Instant Rewards!star Make Money with Instant Rewards!halfstar Make Money with Instant Rewards!emptystar Make Money with Instant Rewards!

The features of Instant Rewards are pretty much completely summed up in its name—complete tasks and be rewarded instantly for your efforts. Unlike some online rewards programs that are completely focused on surveys or videos, this app’s program features multiple ways for users to earn “credits,” which can then be converted to money once enough are accumulated.

For example, users might earn five credits for signing up to receive emails from one website or 25 credits to sign up for another. Once a user has earned a minimum of $7.50, he/she can then choose to “cash out” and receive the earnings through PayPal.

Personally, while I found the concept of using Instant Rewards to be very exciting, I found actually using the app to be a bit more frustrating than desirable.

Often the app would crash on me when I would try to upload a screenshot of my activities to complete an offer, and when an offer may only be worth a few cents, the effort of having to re-open the app (and try again, and possibly again) starts to make the value of the reward seem questionable.

Overall, Instant Rewards is an enticing app although a few bugs in the system should be worked out to make it better.

Navigating from pages of offers to one’s account information is simple, as icons on the bottom of the screen direct users wherever they wish to go. However, while the layout of Instant Rewards is certainly acceptable, the appearance of the app could use some improvements.

Oftentimes certain fonts/scripts would be overlapping each other, making it unpleasantly difficult to decipher the text; additionally, the app seemed riddled with grammatical errors, an issue of appearance that may deter certain iOS users from trusting in the credibility of the app.

As a free app that offers real monetary rewards, Instant Rewards is definitely a great “value.”

The app is easy to use and offers a variety of task options, allowing consumers to invest as much or as little time as they’d like to in the app. However, it should be noted that in order to ever “cash out” on prizes, a user must have earned at least $7.50 worth of credits (750 credits), and accruing these credits certainly takes a good bit of time.

Overall, this app delivers an easy way to make money and will appeal to individuals who have used internet-based points/cash rewards programs in the past, but for anyone who gets easily bored with little tasks, Instant Rewards is probably not the ideal app for him.

 Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democratic

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

In an industry where knockoffs an unoriginal thought holds say, it’s rare to find an item like Draw Destruction, from Nextino, that really brings something new to the table.

The iPhone and iPad game lets players blast away at each other, proving once and for all the pen is mightier than the sword. At the same time, it also fosters its own community of artists. And at the end of the day, it is also a lot of fun.

When it comes to free games for the  iPhone, you really can’t argue with that! But if you’d like to know more about Draw Destruction, our full review is below.

Concept and Gameplay star Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democraticstar Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democraticstar Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democraticstar Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democratichalfstar Draw Destruction: Mutually Assured Destruction Goes Democratic

The idea behind Draw Destruction looks like this: One player sends a drawing of a rabbit to another player. That player must draw something that can destroy the first drawing. In this case, that would be a gun, a fox or some other such oddity.

The drawing is whisked off to the original player, who must return the favor once more. And so on and so forth.

If a player sends a drawing that the other artist finds questionable, we’re off to the tribunal. This is started when one player flags a drawing as inaccurate. The artwork is given to the rest of the Draw Destruction players, who then decide “Yes” or “No.” A legitimate ruling is given the artist, while an illegitimate one is thrown out.

This helps to regulate the gameplay, which is quite needed. The action here is not as smooth or structured as Draw Something and even the measures provided do not make it so. Still, it’s a lot of fun, and we’d highly suggest it.

Here is where Draw Destruction earns lots of points in our book. It’s quite clear the developers have spent a great deal of time improving the way Draw Destruction looks.

The end result is an application that’s ready to compete with its peers. It’s clear, crisp, inviting and warm: Qualities that all inevitably lead to a better gaming experience. Not to mention how easy it is to setup an online game.

All in all, this is a very well-designed application, which gives Draw Destruction a definite leg-up for being a rookie on the field.

Considering Draw Destruction is completely free in the App Store, you have nothing to lose by giving it a go! If you find it too unstructured for your liking, you haven’t lost anything. If, however, you like it and want to keep with it, you can extend the fun via in-app purchase.

Overall, this makes Draw Destruction a phenomenal value and one of the more inventive titles we’ve see hit the market in a while. That’s a solid recommendation for Draw Destruction, as well as two thumbs up!
