Mercactivate opens up the world of street vendors to tourists and local citizens as well.

Designed to make the goods of nearby markets more readily researchable, this app brings local businesses into the spotlight.

Features:

Mercactivate, an app by Armando Perez Acosta, is an app seeking to bridge the marketing gap between local markets and smartphone-using, potential customers.

Specifically, users of Mercactivate can use the app to help them locate nearby street vendors and other small local markets. Information regarding the goods sold at these markets can be found through the app, and selecting specific items that they would like to purchase is even an option at some stores.

Items can be booked through the app, and customers are then informed when they are available for pick-up for actual purchasing. The app can use your iOS GPS system to locate nearby vendors, or a manually directed search for vendors in another area can also be done.

However, it should be mentioned that Mercactivate currently is only featuring very regionally-specific markets right now. To be more exact, this app is currently only featuring Spanish as the in-app language, so English-speaking (or other) users probably won’t be able to appreciate the app’s features fully.

Appearance and Layout:

This is a simply designed app. Clear navigational labels make it easy to find your way around. The in-app color scheme is impressively clean cut as well.

Mercactivate’s designers did a good job of creating an app that is colorful, but not overwhelmingly bright.

Features are logically organized, making it easy to find your favorite markets or to discover new ones in an area as well.

Overall, while Mercactivate doesn’t have graphics that are anything to write home about, the app still does have a cleanly designed layout with a pleasant color scheme that makes it very aesthetically pleasing.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Mercactivate is only currently available in Spanish. Because of this, anyone who is not fluent in Spanish really won’t be able to utilize this app’s features. Additionally, this language limitation really limits the areas where it can be used as well.

Still, for those who are of the target demographic for Mercactivate, this free app is a well created concept. It’s logically designed and easy to use, and if local markets truly do connect through it, Mercactivate could potentially grow their customer base.

LightArrow Organizer Is an All-In-One Productivity App for iOS

iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

When it comes to productivity, it seems like there truly is an app for everything. The trouble with this is that you quickly accumulate a bunch of different apps for different things, making it difficult to keep track of everything and consolidate.

LightArrow Organizer is very well designed and packs a mind-boggling amount of capability into one app.

If you’ve ever looked for a way to keep everything together, this is one app you definitely can’t overlook.

Concept and Functionality:

One of the first things I noticed about LightArrow Organizer, by LightArrow Inc., is that the introductory screens try to be as informational as possible. This is primarily because the app is jam packed with more features than I could probably list.

When it comes to navigation, LightArrow Organizer does have a little bit of a learning curve. However, this is primarily because the app packs a bunch of useful features on the screen.

It’ll definitely take you a little while to find everything that LightArrow Organizer offers, but the quick add buttons at the bottom of the screen are a true lifesaver.

Features:

Covering every single feature that LightArrow Organizer offers would take far too long, but I can honestly say that this is one of the most feature packed apps I’ve reviewed in quite some time.

The trouble with this is that it feels like the developers are trying to take a little too much on one time. After all, it’s better for an app to be awesome for one thing rather than just okay for a bunch of things.

I do want to mention that LightArrow Organizer functions by counting information as items. For example, a calendar event is an item, one contact is an item, and so on.

You start out with 100 free items, and that can quickly get used up if you decide to import your contacts and calendar events right off the bat.

Value:

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

You can purchase increases to your item limit with the of the in-app store, but the primary problem with this is that it can quickly add up for users and someone with over 1000 contacts and a full schedule could easily be forced to spend $70 or more.

Overall, LightArrow Organizer is truly an all-in-one productivity app. It’ll keep track of everything you can think of, but I definitely think that the app needs a more economical way for users to store items without going broke over in-app purchases.

We feature plenty of apps and games for kids here on The iPhone App Review. Some are educational, some are entertaining and some, like this one, are a great combination of both qualities.

Math Tales – The Jungle is an brand-new interactive storybook that will excite children and help them build solid math skills while learning about different animals in the jungle.

Concept and Functionality:

Math Tales: The Jungle iPhone App Review

Math Tales: The Jungle iPhone App Review

Math Tales – The Jungle, from Marshmallow Games, definitely isn’t your average storybook. Normally you would find an immersive environment that encourages kids to engage with everything on the screen, but Math Tales – The Jungle is different.

Instead, the app focuses on having kids complete tasks in order to reach an end goal.

These tasks are math oriented and follow concepts such as logical sequences, learning numbers, and coloring. Kids will not mind having to complete tasks because they integrate with the story very well.

When it comes to navigation and interface, Math Tales – The Jungle is incredibly simple to use.

The game doesn’t feature complex menus or difficult directions. Kids will have no problems finding their way around this app.

Features:

The most surprising thing about Math Tales – The Jungle is the fact that it offers 27 different games for kids to complete. These games are spread across 9 chapters, and kids can only progress to the next chapter once the previous chapter is completed.

Another great feature is the parents section, which is protected by a math equation that changes every time you access it. The parents section allows you to connect with the developers of the game and read about core concepts and other information pertaining to Math Tales – The Jungle.

Value:

Math Tales – The Jungle is available to download from the App Store for $2.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases that I could find.

Overall, Math Tales – The Jungle is an interactive storybook for iPhones and iPads that is definitely worth every penny.

Kids will learn valuable core math concepts while having fun with the characters in the story. I highly recommend it!

Skip Through the Skies in Critter Hop

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by MC

Critter Hop is a simple app that brings back fond memories of old school video games. Free through the iTunes Store, this is a charming little game.

Features:

Offering three levels of difficulty, Critter Hop by Nick Then challenges players to successfully guide little “critters” to floating planks in order to gain coins and stay alive within the game.

Obstacles within the layout of the planks add additional difficulty to some levels, and getting the hang of accurately timing your vertical and horizontal movements is definitely a challenge as well. High scores are kept within the game so you can easily see how well you need to do in order to beat personal records.

In addition to the three different levels of gameplay, players are also challenged to unlock an impressive 20 different characters throughout the game as well.  

As a whole, I found Critter Hop to be a pretty fun game. The gameplay reminded me of some older video and arcade games and the concept was easy to understand.

At the same time, however, I felt like the starting difficulty between the different levels wasn’t all that different. Additionally, there are quite a few in-app ads that pop up, and these start to disrupt your flow in gameplay after a while.

Appearance and Layout:

If the developers of Critter Hop were looking to keep up with the “simplicity” concept within the game’s graphics then they certainly succeeded. Specifically the design of the app’s graphics is very simplistic; details aren’t really a main player within the scenes at all.

Still, although not detailed, the graphics within Critter Hop have a certain type of charm to them and this is appealing to the right audience. The layout for this app is equally simple with self explainable directional icons.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Critter Hop is a free game. It’s fun to play, easy to understand the concept of, and somewhat addictive in nature. Graphics are not the strongest point of the app, but passing off the simplicity as charming helps to overcome that slight negative. In-app ads do pop up from time to time, and this can be frustrating since some of the ads are pretty long. As a whole though, Critter Hop is a fun and challenging game.

WSOP Real Money Poker Nevada iPad Game

WSOP Real Money Poker Nevada iPad Game

The World Series of Poker is one of the most popular and recognized brands that you can see in the poker industry.

In fact, it is one of the key players in the global poker gambling industry. They have become the leaders in the Nevada online gambling platform.

Features:

WSOP Real Money Poker Nevada is a slick and faithful hand-held version of the popular World Series of Poker website, WSOP.com.

The WSOP website and the app, from Caesars Interactive Entertainment, offers real money poker gambling to its visitors. Whether you use a computer to access the WSOP website or download their dedicated mobile app to your iPad, you’ll get all of the action you’re looking for.

If you download this app and you are physically located in the state of Nevada you will be able to start gambling right away. You can simply play online poker from anywhere you want with the help of this app.

The good news is that you don’t need to create a new WSOP account to use this app. You can simply log in with your existing credentials and access the account.

If you don’t have a WSOP account, you can directly sign up for a one through this app.

Layout and Gameplay:

WSOP can be recommended to any individual who is over 21 years of age. In addition, he/she should be physically located in Nevada.

The app has taken necessary measures to protect your privacy, so you don’t need to think twice before you log into it. In fact, they have followed SSL technology and the highest encryption protocols of the industry.

The folks at Caesars Interactive Entertainment have done an excellent job with WSOP Real Money Poker Nevada. They have also adhered to the regulations of Nevada Gaming Commission when creating the official WSOP app.

All the features that can be found in WSOP desktop version cannot be found in the app. While it is true that you can receive the basic functionalities, you will not be able to see all the features in detail. In addition, the interface differs a lot from the desktop version and it will take some time for you to get used to this new look.

Geo location works pretty good with this app. Therefore, people in Nevada will not have to face any hassle when playing poker with this app.

Overall Value:

As mentioned earlier, people who install WSOP on their iPad will not be able to get the same experience that they get from the desktop version.

This app is a good start and you’ll definitely have fun with it, but we would like to see the app reworked to take full advantage of the iPad.
