Zapporoo.com – Make Your App Fantasies Come To Life
iPhone News Article by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Technology is a strange thing. Only a few years ago, to build a functional, good-looking iPhone application you would have needed a full team of coders, several designers, and wheelbarrows full of cash.

But the times they are a changin’! Today, you can just use the absolutely excellent Zapporoo to get the job done.

Zapporoo tries to keep your involvement at the idea level: though not in a bad way. Rather, it tries to help you dream a little dream, and then turn that wild-haired idea into a real live, functioning application.

This isn’t the Wix of app development, though. You won’t be moving around terrible blocks of drag-and-drop code. Rather, you get to work directly with actual humans to fashion an interface, hash out your idea, and then publish a 100% real application.

You bring the idea in-house, and then Zapporoo and its team of easily accessible developers will take it all from there.

You’re also not stuck with either Android or iPhone. Zapporoo leaves you free to do both, and one can even add Windows into the mix.

The latter is quite a surprise, but one we’re willing to take. In one fell swoop an inventor can bring an idea to the table, oversee its development, and then see it distributed across all common mobile platforms.

Now, we know what you might be thinking. “This all means Zapporoo is going to just steal my idea, right? I won’t get to edit my idea or influence it in any way!”

Thankfully, you’re dead wrong. According to those behind the service, you are given 24/7 access to your application as it is being developed. You’re also allowed to work closely and directly with the developers.

In this way, you can keep the project under your directing thumb. It will never get away from its original intent, and yet you can still leave the sticky bits to the professionals. Seems like a win-win to us!

If you’re still not sold, but do have an application idea you’ve been mulling over, checkout Zapporoo’s increasingly extensive portfolio section.

For a fairly new company, they’ve been able to achieve some remarkable successes across a variety of platforms. To us that speaks volumes to the service’s trustworthiness.

All in all, for those with a fantastic application idea but neither the time nor the inclination to learn Objective-C, Zapporoo is the ideal flat-mate.

They’ll do all the metaphorical washing-up, as well as the grocery shopping, leaving you to stay in and ponder the bigger, deeper meanings of life. Metaphors aside, it seems you really do get that kind of turnkey experience here. Bring a quality application idea to the table, and the lads at Zapporoo will take it from there.

Now who could argue with a trade like that? For more information, or to get your project started, visit Zapporoo’s contact page and drop them a line.

Perfect Piano
iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Perfect Piano, developed by Revontulet Soft Inc, is a fun and feature-rich musical app for iPhone and iPad.

Whether you’re a piano master or a musical novice, this app is a great way to practice.

Concept and Functionality:

If you’re looking for a great way to practice music no matter where you go, Perfect Piano is an app that definitely fits the bill.

Though we’ve looked at quite a few musical apps here on The iPhone App Review, I can honestly say that Perfect Piano is one of the best, if not the best, piano app I’ve seen.

Perfect Piano offers users a variety of ways to utilize the app. If you’re just starting out, the app features a very handy “Learn to Play” mode.

This is where the app really shines as a learning tool. Users can select from an impressive variety of songs and adjust difficulty settings as needed.

There’s also a free play mode in Perfect Piano, which allows users to freely experience everything that the app has to offer. You can even set up keys on each side of the screen, which allows two people to play at the same time.

Usually complex apps have a clunky and confusing interface, but the developers of Perfect Piano have obviously worked very hard on making the UI easy-to-use and it shows.

I found it very easy to navigate around the app, change songs and instruments, and do other things. It might be a bit intimidating at first, but users shouldn’t have a problem.

Perfect Piano is loaded with features, from a variety of musical instruments to a huge number of songs to choose from. The app also allows you to record songs and share them with the world.

If you have an external Midi keyboard, there’s a fair chance that Perfect Piano supports it via the lightning USB camera adapter.

Lastly, Perfect Piano includes an online catalog of songs for VIP members. This catalog is updated weekly and includes popular songs by today’s top musical artists, as well as classics.

Value:

Perfect Piano is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

If you want to unlock the full potential of the app, you’ll need to purchase a VIP subscription plan. Rates start at $0.99 per week (ideal for a trial run) up to $5.99 for one year.

Personally I think that the yearly plan is an absolute steal, but I do recommend the weekly subscription at first, just to make sure Perfect Piano is right for you.

Overall, anyone who is looking for a serious musical app needs to check out Perfect Piano.

This is a must-have app for piano players and those who are not yet piano players but are interested in learning how to play.

Perfect Pianoperfect_piano.jpg requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

The ubiquity of modern day technology certainly epitomizes the double-edged sword.

While we can now do things faster and more efficiently than ever before, we also become half immersed in the real word, and half immersed in our digital realm quite frequently.

How can we use technology effectively, and truly leverage the best that it has to offer? Well, in one word, education.

Education apps can achieve this balance like no other, allowing us to challenge ourselves, while still enjoying the gratifying engagement of our iPhone or iPad.

Lipa Knight Valentine’s is a terrific production that offers a creative and well designed balanced synthesis between adventure and education.

The developer, Lipa Learning s.r.o., does a great job and illustrates game development in a holistic and progressive way.

Journey through this app with your beloved child or grandchild and watch as they’re whisked away into a world of whimsy and challenging puzzle action.

Lipa Knight Valentine’s iPhone App Review

Features:

The game itself is somewhat of a traditional puzzle game, but adapted into a narrative fantasy to engage, educate and entertain a younger audience.

The app weighs in at just over 75 MB, and starts up in a breeze. You’ll then see the template of the app, which displays a soft array of cartoons and colors, letting you navigate level by level.

The game is constructed for users over 5 years old, but the most accurate range is probably between 5 and 10 to get the most out of the app.

Players are required to complete puzzles in order to move from one level to the next and require some careful spatial analysis. They will definitely begin to test the gamer as they progress.

Lipa Knight Valentine’s as a whole boasts 20 levels over 4 settings, various achievements and animations, and no in app advertisements.

The app is continuously fine-tuned, and offers up a whole lot of fun for younger users.

Concept and Functionality:

We’ve seen plenty of puzzle games, but this one wins us over because of it’s well crafted construction, bright bubbly presentation, and ease of use.

Everything from the plot to the controls are easy to get a hold of, which makes downloading the app and getting started simple to do in a single, swift motion.

Overall Value:

The app is just under a dollar and will certainly provide hours of fun for your loved one.

Especially if you have an iPad (which allows a bit more immersion when gaming), you and your loved one will love this nifty little puzzle app and should download it today, just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Office Rumble
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Review by Adam Itkoff

Review by Adam Itkoff

Action games on iOS and iPad are a dime a dozen, but sometimes something new comes out of the gate with an entirely original spin.

Office Rumble, from PNIX Games, is a fun cathartic release that gives you a way to get back at evil bosses in a unique and hilarious way.

You’ll have some intense 3 on 3 combat style fighting in this title, where your character will take aim at evil bosses across the universe!

This game will resonate hugely with those cramped into a cubicle or whose boss won’t stop sneezing into the refrigerator in the common room.

It’s dynamic, edgy, and exactly what you’ve been looking for if you’ve been stuck punching the clock instead of your boss.

Office Rumble iPhone Game Review

Features:

The game boasts a cohesive storyline to bring you in and make you dead-set on conquering evil bosses thrown your way. You’ll gain access to play with more characters as you progress, and the story itself is continuously entertaining to keep you involved and eager for more action.

You can choose between 3 on 3 or 5 on 5 action as you coast through cartoon combat.

Concept and Functionality:

The app is a little weighty at over 60MB, but once it downloads (which we recommend completing over Wi-Fi) it opens, loads and runs very smoothly.

The developers of this app promise to update it each and every month, and with the last update coming less than a week ago, seem to come through on their word.

Thus far, the crowd seems to love the action packed fun found in Office Rumble. Even the Facebook fan page of this App is swarming with new and old fans alike waiting for the next update or improvement.

The app especially boasts its ability to act as a stress reliever, and scores of fans attest to that idea as well.

Overall Value:

In general, we had a great time playing this app and give our accolades to the developers for a unique and hilarious gaming experience.

While the game does not contain riveting three-dimensional CGI, it’s simply not meant to.

It achieves greatness by being partly comic, partly cartoon, partly game, and a whole lot of action-adventure goodness.

Chuck B Blast for iOS Is a Fun and Challenging Space-Based Arcade Game

Chuck B Blast
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

As someone who grew up on two-dimensional video games, I always get a bit nostalgic when I see modern developers pay a tribute to old-school gaming by re-creating the same kind of environment.

Chuck B Blast is a new game for iPhone and iPad which pays homage to old-school gaming and it does it incredibly well.

Developed by Pearl Computing, this action-packed platformer features hours of gameplay and unique tap-to-move controls.

Concept and Gameplay:

When you first open Chuck B Blast, there’s a detailed introduction that appears on the screen. This intro gives you a background story of Chuck and his mission to infiltrate a planet that is on a collision course with Earth.

There are three different levels to play through, and each level includes four acts that must be completed in order to unlock the next one. It’s worth noting that these levels are very intricate and lengthy, meaning you won’t be zipping through the game. Plus, the levels are actually fairly difficult to complete.

In order to control Chuck, players must On the screen to make him move. To shoot at enemies, players have to tap one of the weapon buttons at the bottom of the screen, then tap on the enemy to fire.

Swiping up on the screen will make Chuck jump, and swiping down while standing over a lever will toggle it.

This gameplay style is very different from typical arcade games that rely on an on-screen joystick, which gives players a ton of control over the character’s movement in Chuck B Blast.

If you happen to perish in any time during a level, you don’t have to worry about getting kicked back to the beginning of the level if you’ve made it far enough to pass a checkpoint.

Also, we especially like that Chuck B Blast doesn’t penalize you in any way for dying too many times.

While many games tend to punish players by forcing them to either purchase additional lives with real money, ask their Facebook friends for help, or wait a certain amount of time until lives replenish, Chuck B Blast really sets itself apart by doing just the opposite.

Lastly, players can upgrade Chuck’s weaponry by spending coins from destroying monsters. Perhaps the best part about this is that players can’t pay to win the game.

You have to earn every coin yourself, and there’s no way to spend money to get ahead. Chuck B Blast is completely free of in-app purchases.

Value:

Chuck B Blast is available to download from the App Store for $0.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. When it comes to value, I believe players are getting their money’s worth and more.

Overall, Chuck B Blast is perfect for those who want to relive the glory days of two-dimensional platformers without going broke.

We tip our collective hats to the developers for creating such a fantastic game that’s free of extra fluff and in-app purchases.
