Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

Pixel Hunter, from Lemondo Entertainment, is a triumphant, action packed winner through and through. This 3D style side-scroller has been designed in both 8-Bit and Voxel formats to give gamers a crunchy, 80’s reminiscent adventure for the ages.

Become instantly absorbed into a digital hyperspace swarming with snakes, flying birds, strutting dogs, and dozens of obstacles of every type. Jump, shoot, and run through each level and into battle with the bosses ahead.

You’ll have to be sharp and quick to make it through this pixelated journey in one piece!

This game boasts a Mario-esque feel, and a hugely entertaining 8-bit format. For those who don’t know, this is a gritty computer architecture that utilizes 8-bit integers, memory addresses or data units that are a maximum of 8-bits wide.

This takes the gaming experience immediately into the 80’s, where this format of game found huge peaks of success before being displaced by more three-dimensionally polished graphics.

Still the format holds a place in many hearts, including my own.

This format takes gamers through various levels, including forests, mountains, the arctic, a volcano and the beach. Dodge or destroy animals like birds, amphibians, fishes and bosses galore. Work to earn back your precious weapons, which have been stolen from you and instigated the adventure in the first place.

There’s no short way around it; this game is absolutely fabulous. The game itself utilizes a format that is rarely attempted, and looks absolutely stellar on the iPhone’s high-resolution screen.

The game itself runs extremely well, and while it is very challenging, still lends itself to skill development and expertise.

Hop, dodge, jump and hunt for your weapons in Pixel Hunter, the soon to be classic, bite-sized 8-bit game.

No crashes, stalls, lags or issues whatsoever. Get to gaming!

Excellent gaming, huge obstacle variety, and rich, pixelated gaming environments help to bring this app into a world of its own. For those who loved Duck Hunt, Mario, or just for those eighties babies, Pixel Hunter is going to win you over on the very first level.

 Give Clear Instructions with Marching Orders

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Marching Orders, from Nightshade Media, Inc., is something that you probably haven’t seen before. It’s a “you-do” app instead of just another “to-do” app. Available for $4.99 through the iTunes Store, Marching Orders is designed to improve the ease of giving instructions to anyone who does work for you.

Features: star Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersemptystar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Orders

Like its name indicates, Marching Orders is a task-oriented app. However, unlike most such apps, Marching Orders was created to aid users in making lists of tasks for others—not themselves—to do. This way, Marching Orders is “you-do” app, instead of a “to-do” app.

No set- up is required before a user can employ this app, and this streamlined approach to “getting down to business” is really appreciated. Unlike simply creating a traditional list, Marching Orders lets users use pictures to clarify instructions; voice recognition can also be used to make a list, further speeding up the creation process.

It also facilitates building up a complete project by ‘remembering’ where it was last used so additional steps can be easily added.

Once a list is completed it is then saved as a PDF and can be emailed or printed for distribution. Brief instructions are provided at the beginning of the app for first time users, and I found its features simple to use.

Appearance and Layout: star Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersemptystar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Orders

The appearance of this app is fine but nothing really exemplary. The option to add a picture to each task helps to brighten up the appearance of Marching Orders a bit and, presumably, adds a lot to the instructions being communicated.

This simplicity will most likely mean that users who are really interested in aesthetic appeal may not be very impressed with Marching Orders’ appearance but those who are only looking for a very streamlined approach to task-making lists probably won’t have any complaints.

The layout of Marching Orders is logically oriented so using it is entirely intuitive and should not be a problem for first-time users. As a whole, the layout of Marching Orders is appreciated while the appearance is simply adequate.

There’s no doubt that the ability to create a pdf of the completed steps in a clean and consistent layout adds to the app’s appeal and ease of use. As the app evolves, though, we like to see the ability to add video and audio snippets. Some actions are best described by watching and/or listening to someone doing it the correct way.

Value: star Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordershalfstar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Ordersemptystar Give Clear Instructions with Marching Orders

Marching Orders is a well designed app, but its price tag of $4.99 seems a little steep for the benefits derived from its functions. The features in the app undeniably make it both beautiful and simple to use. The question is whether or not messaging a list of instructions and photos to the desired recipient will achieve the required results.

One thing for sure is that as a user’s library of projects grows the value of the app to the user will certainly grow as well, but at $4.99 our concern is that there may not be enough takers.

Overall, Marching Orders is a lovely app, but the practicality of its price is a bit difficult to fully justify.

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

If you loved Happy Feet, or infamous games like the original Helicopter, then you’re in for a treat with The Little Penguin That Could, from Fensi Mobail Solyushns OOO. This game allows you to fly through the air, using touch screen controls to pump the wings of an adorable penguin.

Time your touches perfectly to sail between one obstacle and through another, toward ultimate penguin victory. If you mess up, you’ll crash into a massive wall of ice. If you time it correctly, you’ll squeak through the air into the next area, moving constantly toward the goal and striving for arctic greatness.

This game is free, and starts you off with three snowflakes. These snowflakes can be used to continue your adventure once a massive ice-wall or other obstacle has derailed you. Once these snowflakes are used up, you’re in for a riskier journey, and the next fall can end your game.

You are also able to buy additional boosts and items via in app purchases. These can compliment your gaming experience, but aren’t all that necessary, as The Little Penguin That Could is a highly interactive, challenging, and fluid gaming experience in its original state.

Certain gamers who experience success, or are eyeing the top-spot, may want to take it to the next level via in app purchases.

The concept isn’t new, but it incorporates a classic touch-to-fly gaming experience that has become a staple through classics like this one. The concept is sound, the app runs well, and you’ll hear no complaints from us here.

If you loved games like Helicopter, and enjoy navigating through tight situations, then The Little Penguin That Could is going to be an absolute delight. Download today, and take flight!

WedStyle, developed by WeddingWire, seeks to inspire users through a feedback-based social network. Though the app shares many similarities with popular sites like Pinterest, the unique rating system is what truly sets WedStyle apart from the rest.

Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, especially in the early stages. You want everything to be perfect, but where do you start? If you’re looking for inspiration, popular sites like Pinterest are a must to browse.

However, sifting through hundreds of thousands of photos is almost impossible. Not only that, but you’re not quite sure what’s stunning and what’s flat-out bad. That’s where WedStyle comes in handy.

Basically WedStyle serves as a community-driven opinion app. Simply snap or upload a picture of a wedding-related item you’re interested in and post it to the app.

Community members will then give your photo a thumbs up or thumbs down, giving users a basic idea of what others think. Photos need not be your own, which is also a huge plus.

Users can optionally leave comments on your photo, as well, providing even more (hopefully constructive) feedback.

Naturally something like WedStyle gives back only what users put into it. What I mean by this is if you post very basic photos, you’re likely going to get basic responses. If you get creative and post something like a split photo of two dresses, however, thumbs up turns into a vote for the dress on the left and thumbs down is a vote for the dress on the right. It’s really all in how you use it.

Though the app shares many similarities with Pinterest, the quick rating system is what sets it apart and, in my opinion, makes WedStyle a better tool.

Seeing as WedStyle is a social networking app at heart, it comes with quite a few features that allow you to connect with other users. You can follow others who have similar taste and watch as their posts show up on your notification page.

This feature also allows friends and family to connect with each other and plan together, making the process even smoother.

Much like Pinterest, WedStyle allows you to save your favorite photos to personalized boards for easy reference later on. You can choose to make these boards public or private, as well.

Press Release: Flickr Images Make ‘Timeless’ a Countdown App with a Difference

timeless icon 150x150 Press Release: Flickr Images Make ‘Timeless’ a Countdown App with a Difference

“How many sleeps to go?” Timeless can keep track for you

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – March 7, 2014: Curve Tomorrow announces the immediate availability of their free iPhone app Timeless. Timeless uses a novel ‘countdown wheel’ set upon Flickr images to help users keep track of upcoming events. Users can easily share their countdown timers via Facebook, Twitter or Weibo and receive useful notifications of approaching events.

“Timeless is a great new app for counting down the days until an important event,” states Sarah Hanlon from The iPhone App Review. “This lightweight countdown timer can display multiple countdown dates in a streamlined and clean interface, making it a true pleasure to use.”

Curve Tomorrow have replaced the traditional digital countdown clock with a countdown wheel. This wheel graphically represents an entire year as a circle. Time remaining until an event is shown as a colored segment on this circle, allowing the user to visually determine how long until an event occurs. We intuitively perceive the flow of time in a circular motion, analogous to a clock face,” said Mohinder Jaimangal, Curve Tomorrow Founder,We wanted to create a timer app that captured that innate perception.”

Timeless consists of three screens: create a new event, summary of events, and detailed event information. This makes usage intuitive and navigation seamless. The user is prompted for minimal input when creating a new event: title, date and color. The new event is then added to the summary of events screen, which includes all active timers, ordered by number of days remaining in the countdown.

The detailed event information screen includes the number of hours, minutes and seconds remaining until an event and emphasizes the visual features of the countdown wheel. Random Flickr images are tiled behind the wheel, adding a creative element to the user experience.

Timeless also provides the user with iPhone notifications of an approaching event, at convenient preset intervals and allows sharing of events via social media.

Curve Tomorrow has prioritized ease of use and integrated unique artistic features to create an app suitable for all ages. “There are thousands of countdown apps available for download out there, so what makes this one so special? Well for starters its beautiful to look at,” Bess Couture, AppsHappens.

Pricing and availability

Timeless is available now for free download from the App Store and is designed for use with the iPhone with iOS 7.
