Company 100 Inc.’s Buddy Rush: The Legends game offers players the opportunity to lead characters to fight in the “cutest RPG.” Free through the iTunes Store, this app is a sequel to the previously created Buddy Rush game.

Features:

Buddy Rush: The Legends is an thrilling RPG that brings the charm of round, cute-looking little cartoon characters to the arena of battling iOS games.

Players in this game can choose different characters to play, with the additional option of accessorizing them to make them uniquely yours as well. Battling is set up to be against players all over the world, but this PVP mode is not really the main focus of the app.

Instead, Buddy Rush players are challenged to embark on different missions that are all designed to “help bring peace to the kingdom.” This app features many different characters and battle pieces, making it a bit of a hefty space-taker on your iOS device.

Operations seemed to run fairly smoothly though, which was definitely appreciated during battles. Buddy Rush, like many other apps of its type, is meant to be played while connected to wifi.

While outfitting your character throughout the app is definitely possible without making any in-app purchases, it should be noted that a lot of the optional in-app purchases are offered to improve your Buddy Rush experiences.

As promised, the developers of Buddy Rush: The Legends have created a game with “cute” graphics.

The cartoon characters are bubbly and unique, giving an interesting “cutesy” twist to a game of battling opponents and questing for treasures.

Colors are vibrantly bright, keeping in line with the overall mood of the game. As with most games, getting used to the layout and controlling of Buddy Rush takes a little time at first, but other than this initial period of getting oriented, the layout is pretty easy to understand.

Value:

As indicated above, Buddy Rush: The Legends is a free app. However, just like with Candy Crush or Clash of Clans, there are a lot of optional in-app purchases that could really hike up the cost of playing this game. All that being said, you can play entirely for free if you choose to.

Even though these purchases are purely optional, they seem like they could really be useful within the app, making players more than likely to try them out.

Overall, while Buddy Rush is a fun game, it’s playability “value” is brought down a little by the importance of these in-app purchases. Still, for fans of the game’s characters, Buddy Rush is well worth trying out.

Pryvate Now Offers a Secure Way to Call, Chat, and Email

Pryvate Now – The Secure Mobile Voice, Text & Messaging Encryption App
Price: Free
Rating:
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Pryvate Now is a powerful app that delivers secure communications between users. In a world where security is quickly becoming a top priority, this is a very intriguing app.

Concept and Functionality:

Encrypted private communications apps like Pryvate Now function by requiring all parties involved to use the same app.

In the case of Pryvate Now this enables serverless RSA 4096-bit encryption, although requiring both parties to use the same app can also pose a problem because it’s not always easy to convince other people to download apps on their device. Of course in a business setting this may be less of an issue.

Setting up Pryvate Now, a free iPhone app by Criptyque, is pretty easy though, and only requires a phone number and email address.

Once you’ve created an account, your 30 day trial begins. During this trial, you have unrestricted access to everything that Pryvate Now offers. This is a great opportunity to take the app for a test drive and see if it’s the right fit for you.

While testing Pryvate Now, however, I did notice that the app uses a registration server that must be functional in order for users to access features within the app. If the registration server is down, you cannot make phone calls or access email.

Features:

When it comes to navigation, Pryvate Now certainly isn’t difficult to figure out. There are many features that look just like other apps you use, including the dial pad for calls. You can also securely chat with other users and even browse your email within the app.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Pryvate Now iPhone App

The privacy of your communications is assured through the use of RSA 4096-bit encryption, which is VERY strong and virtually unbreakable.

I do want to mention that Pryvate Now is available on many different platforms and mobile devices, meaning iOS users and Android users alike can communicate with each other.

Value:

Pryvate Now is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. Once you are free trial is up, you have to commit to a subscription in order to ensure full functionality of the app. Subscriptions vary from $5.99 per month to $59.99 per year.

Overall, Pryvate Now is designed well and your actual communication does not rely on servers or middlemen but it does use a validation server in order to grant access to the app. This means that users are stuck if the server goes down. We expect the service to implement redundant validation servers with hot backups to eliminate this issue. Hopefully it will be changed soon so the service is uninterrupted.

Blast the Enemy Away in Bunker Buster

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Bunker Buster is a fun game that challenges your quick thinking skills as you blast away buildings. Offered for free in the App Store, this game features a continuous barrage of action during each round of gameplay.

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Features:

Just like its name indicates, Bunker Buster, an app by Humanoid Mobile, is an app where you goal is simple: You must destroy the bunkers and other buildings before you’re destroyed yourself.

This is accomplished by bombing enemy turrets with your own drones before the turrets have the chance to take you down. High scores are kept in the app, letting you challenge yourself to beat your best each time you play.

When first starting out, figuring out how to best manage and utilize your resources takes a little time to get used to, but once you get the hang of things, the mission of Bunker Buster becomes much more manageable.

The in-game action is quick and simple to understand, making Bunker Buster an exciting little game to play.

However, long video-style advertisements in between rounds of gaming really kill your momentum and detract greatly from the overall enjoyability of the app.

Appearance and Layout:

Bunker Buster is a very simply designed app. While this simplicity is appealing to some extent, a bit more detail into the graphics of the game would definitely have been appreciated.

The graphics of Bunker Buster are reminiscent of an era in mobile gaming when non-detailed games were more common. Because of this, this game definitely feels more dated than it is.

The layout of this app is fine though; an easily understandable tools bar at the bottom of the screen keeps you informed of your playing options constantly, and a simply designed home screen leaves very little room for navigational confusion.

Value:

As indicated above, Bunker Buster is a free app. However there are a lot of in-app ads that appear in between games.

If they were just pop-up picture ads, then they wouldn’t be quite as disruptive, but as it stands, most of them are fairly long video ads. Because the ads are so long, it really makes it difficult to get into any rhythm of gameplay with Bunker Buster, and a player’s interest in the app definitely dwindles while these ads go on.

There definitely isn’t a shortage of productivity apps on the App Store, but finding the right one for you can be difficult.

IdeaSwipe is a very cool and easy way to track your ideas without any hassle. This is one iPhone app to definitely check out.

Developed by Effective Mind AB, IdeaSwipe makes it easy to capture ideas and track challenges. You can even team up with friends to tackle challenges.

Concept and Functionality:

I’m a productivity app junkie. If there’s a chance it’ll make my day easier, I’m all over it. IdeaSwipe is a breath of fresh air; most apps are incredibly detailed and require you to really sit and focus on your idea. This app is different because you can provide as much or as little info as you want.

IdeaSwipe goes beyond capturing quick ideas in text. You can easily change the background color of your idea for a personal touch, and you can even add photos to your idea. Challenges are awesome because you can invite friends or colleagues to collaborate and tackle tough tasks together.

When it comes to usability, I think IdeaSwipe is a great balance of features and functionality. You definitely won’t get lost using the app, and I really like the quick add button at the bottom of the screen.

These 30 minute sessions are a fantastic way to quickly focus and collaborate around a single idea. You can save session logs for easy access, as well.

Another cool feature is the idea trigger. If you shake your iPhone (carefully, of course), a card with a picture and keywords will appear on the screen. You can use this idea trigger to help you give your thoughts a bit of direction.

Value:

IdeaSwipe can be downloaded from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. You can purchase additional idea triggers for $2.99, and I’m sure the developers will add additional packs in the future.

Overall, IdeaSwipe is a great productivity app for iPhone. I definitely recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for a free way to collaborate with friends and colleagues.

Ask Avenue – Free Real Estate Advice

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Ask Avenue makes connecting with realtors to find your dream property easier than ever before. A free app, Ask Avenue is a unique way to connect with local real estate agents.

Features:

Ask Avenue, by Avenue Interactive Inc., is a pretty cool real estate app. Instead of you just having to browse through all of the local listings on your own, this app connects you (virtually) with a certified real estate agent in your own area that can help find you the homes/apartments/living spaces that interest you the most.

Past conversations with agents can be reviewed or deleted if they’re no longer of use to you, and searches for homes or agents is not limited to the GPS region of your iOS device.

Specifically, Ask Avenue allows you to change  your city of location prior to making inquiries, making it possible to house-hunt prior to ever actually arriving in a location.

While actually using Ask Avenue was a really easy experience, it is important to note that use of the app is tied to your Facebook account.

For interested users who don’t wish to connect their two accounts or for anyone who does not have a Facebook account, using Ask Avenue isn’t really an option; this factor can definitely detract from the overall appeal of this app.

Appearance and Layout:

Ask Avenue iPhone App

Ask Avenue has a fresh, clean feeling about its user interface. The design is very user-friendly, and its layout makes it easy to get around the app even when you’re just starting to use it.

This user-friendly design is one of the stronger features of the app and makes working with it a pleasure. Resetting your searches to be area-specific instead of GPS-based is also easily done.

This app has very few things cluttering the screen at any one time, and I felt like this minimalistic approach was great for keeping my focus on the photos provided by the agents.

As a whole, the layout of Ask Avenue is easy to understand, and personalizing the app to best fit your own real estate needs is very easy to accomplish.

Value:

This is a free app. It’s easy to use, and I felt that questions were answered in a timely manner. However, with the prevalence of easy-browse real estate apps already on the market today, it’s hard to recommend Ask Avenue over those already more popular apps.

Additionally, we’d like to suggest the ability to register with an email address since the connection to a Facebook login will definitely deter some potential users.
