If you’re just getting started in the stock market or someone who casually invests, having the right tools and information will make a world of difference in making sure you have a positive experience.

Knowledge is power when it comes to the stock market but learning the lingo and understanding all the new terms and concepts can be daunting.

Investagate is a must-have app for any new investors that want to get comfortable with the stock market and all the information needed to make sense of it all.

The app is off to a very good start but there are improvements that can be made.

Concept and Functionality:

If your goal is to learn about stocks and the markets you might go online and in your reading come across many foreign (to you) financial terms and even some explanations. The websites with the information you want, however, all have one thing in common. In order to be generally useful they provide universal examples for their website visitors. It’s then up to you to figure out how to apply this to the company you are researching.

Investagate sets itself apart by giving you an explanation of all the financial terms in detail and the example will always be based on the company you have chosen in the app.

All financial terms (items) are clickable and will open in the in-app browser explaining the term and what the term means for the company you have selected in the app.

The beauty of this approach is that it allows anyone regardless of their background to quickly and easily be able to analyze a company that trades on the stock market and the layout is easy to navigate.

If you’re just getting started as a market watcher or you’re someone who invests periodically or you’re researching a specific company, this app is quite useful for the data that most people want at their fingertips such as price, history, financial statements, etc.

The current state of Investagate is an excellent fit for anyone new to the world of investing. That said, there are some areas where the app could be improved.

We would prefer that users have a way of saving a list of stocks into a portfolio for quick access or to compare different investment strategies; the only saved list is recent search history. Also, you can’t search for a stock by its abbreviation, only the company name.

One other key feature that we’d like to see added is notifications. With the debut of iOS 10 and supercharged widgets and notifications, this is something that could certainly be a game changing differentiator for an app like Investagate.

Value:

Investagate is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There are embedded ads, but I couldn’t find an option to disable them.

Overall, Investagate is a well-designed and useful app if you’re looking to quickly and easily find detailed information about stocks and is a great way to start on the road to being an educated investor.

Homework Help At Your Fingertips With EssayShark

EssayShark: Online Paper Help And Writing Homework Tutoring Service

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

EssayShark: Online Paper Help and Writing Homework Tutoring Service is an app that every student should check out.

It provides homework help from the convenience of your mobile device and is aimed at students from high school through university levels.

Features:

The name of EssayShark, an app by FrogProg Limited, fairly accurately paints a picture of what kind of features are offered through the app.

Although the official app description is basically that of an online essay-writing, tutor-guiding service, the review comments left within the actual app itself seem to point more towards a different genre.

Specifically, the app’s main function appears to be mostly used by students paying tutors/writers through the app to complete homework assignments for them.

These assignments can range to include any number of topics, and specific writers can also specialize in focused areas of study as well.

The price for an essay appears to vary by the length of the topic, and samples are provided within EssayShark to give users an idea of what to expect. Most of the reviews for different writers within the app are very positive.

Again, while EssayShark can also be used for getting generalized writing advice (without having a full paper written for you), it seems that most users of the app don’t use it just for simple advice.

Appearance and Layout:

EssayShark is extremely easy to use.

This ease is largely due to its simple layout that is really easy to navigate. Setting up an account is fairly instant, and payments within the app are done via PayPal.

Discovering different writers and researching their past works and reviews is also a cinch; this can particularly be helpful if you’re wondering how well a particular writer might do on your specific assignment.

However, the graphics of EssayShark aren’t particularly impressive; while the app is very user-friendly, its appearance isn’t very exciting. Still, the app’s design could be described positively as “functional.”

Value:

While EssayShark is free to create an account, actually using the services offered through the app definitely is an active investment.

Writing services/homework help come at a price; while the rates through the app are arguably cheaper than that of a personal “real-life” tutor, the results you get from the services offered through the app may not be as predictable.

For some, use of EssayShark’s features might actually be in violation to academic honor codes. While there are definitely ways to use this app with integrity, the range of services offered puts the onus on students to use the app in a way that is helpful without going over the line.

Soar to New Heights in Fly Froggy for iPhone

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Long ago, a fun game called Doodle Jump debuted on the App Store. Amassing millions of fans and opening the door to a brand-new gameplay style, many games followed in the footsteps of this successful title.

Fly Froggy is a top notch entertaining game that’s both addicting and fun to play.

It is sure to keep you entertained for hours on end.

Concept and Gameplay:

As I mentioned before, Fly Froggy, by Nixar, shares quite a few similarities with Doodle Jump. For example, both games are endless vertical scrollers but allow you to accumulate points as you reach new heights.

In order to play Fly Froggy, all you have to do is tap on branches so your frog can stick his tongue out and a launch himself further in the air. If you fail to do so before the frog reaches the bottom of the screen, the game is over. It really is as simple as that.

There’s a helpful tutorial the consists of screenshots in order to guide you through the basics of the game, but I found Fly Froggy to be pretty easy to figure out.

One of the things that I really like about the game is the fact that simple graphics make it easy to concentrate on what’s going on in the game.

One feature that I noticed was greyed out on the main menu of Fly Froggy is the leader boards. It seems that this is a feature that’s in the works, and I really hope it will go live soon because it will make the game even more fun to play.

Another cool thing about Fly Froggy is the fact that it is completely free to play. The only thing you have to pay for (optionally) is additional coins so you can buy revives.

Value:

Fly Froggy is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. As I mentioned above, you don’t have to pay to win the game. There aren’t even ads to distract you, which is definitely noteworthy when it comes to a free game.

Overall, Fly Froggy is a game that you should definitely check out if you like endless scrolling games. The opportunity for your next best high score is always there, and I definitely look forward to seeing global leader boards in the near future.

60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure Will Blow Your Mind

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a thrilling game that challenges players to use their “survival skills” to survive a nuclear disaster.

Newly released to the iOS platform, this game by Robot Gentleman sp. z o.o. is sure to keep you entertained for hours.

Features:

60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a game set in the 1950s when a nuclear attack hits the world as the characters know it.

Within the app it is your job to survive, as well as to make the decisions that help keep the rest of your crew alive as well.

This might mean gathering certain resources pre-attack or by making certain survival decisions post-attack.

Personally I found it both equally exciting to purposefully try to make the best decisions at times and to make some questionable choices also, just to find out what might happen because of them.

A detailed written storyline keeps players informed of what all is happening in the world of 60 Seconds!, but having a voiceover to read out some of that information might be a desired addition to the game for those with shorter reading attention spans.

Even without a voiceover, however, the features of this app don’t leave much lacking at all.

Appearance and Layout:

60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure iPhone Game

The level of detail that obviously went into designing the graphics of 60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is very impressive.

Little nooks and crannies of each screen keep you on your toes to notice all of the detailed resources potentially available to you, should you choose to take notice of and decide to utilize them.

While the graphics of 60 Seconds! are all cartoons, they are still done in a way that fits well with the somewhat dark undertone of the app.

I also appreciated the easy to navigate layout of the game as a whole as well; even though I was unfamiliar with both it and its storyline initially, figuring out my way around the app took relatively little time, leaving me with more time to actually enjoy playing the game.

Value:

At almost $3.00, 60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a bit pricier than ideal, but you definitely get your money’s worth.

For those who do decide to make this investment, the features of this app do not disappoint; they are absolutely worth every penny of the $2.99 price tag.

Overall, the developers of this app have created a gaming masterpiece that delivers on its promises.

Press Release: Booty Bay Limited Releases Look & Find: Fun Activities! a Colorful and Interactive App for iOS and Android

Look & Find: Fun Activities!
iPhone App Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 21, 2016 – Look & Find: Fun Activities! is an exciting new educational app for preschoolers that parents will love. Booty Bay Limited’s Look & Find is the perfect solution for concerned parents who are always looking for a new way to teach their child something new, while also making sure they have fun learning.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Look & Find provides a highly interactive environment where kids can explore and discover everyday objects and features three interactive themes for children: the beach, the zoo, and the countryside. Each theme includes four creative scenes where kids must search for objects.

A recent review of Look & Find by TheiPhoneAppReview.com gave the app a rating of five stars and praised it by saying, “I really like the graphics and illustrations in Look & Find because they’re bright and colorful. It’s clear that quite a bit of detail went into the visual appearance of the app and I know kids will enjoy the cute animals.”

There are a total of 60 discoverable objects in Look & Find. Parents can adjust game settings to display the names below objects, which helps children visually associate words with images.

The developer strongly believes that Look & Find is a truly useful learning tool and writes, “Colorful pictures promote children’s imagination and cognitive skills while keeping them engaged and focused.  The game is playable in 6 different languages, which is perfect for an initiation to foreign languages!”

Though Look & Find includes in-app purchases for additional themes, both the settings menu and locked themes require an answer to a fairly complex math equation. This should help mitigate the chances of a child accidentally navigating to the grown-up sections of the app.

Look & Find: Fun Activities! is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. It is also available to download from Google Play.

About the Developer

Booty Bay Limited has released a total of four games for iOS and Android. They have been developing and publishing mobile games since 2013.Look & Find: Fun Activities! is the first of a series of games that will be released by the publisher in the months to come. The game will soon see an update with three new themes to discover.

Make New Friends with Coffee Phone

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Finding new friends, and especially ones that you have something in common with, can be a challenge. There are plenty of social apps targeting all kinds of hobbies, but none that we know of where the center piece is your cup of coffee.

Coffee Phone lets you meet new people and expand your social circle all while getting a cup of joe.

Sitting down for a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop is now even more of a social experience.

Free to download, this app both helps you locate local restaurants and connect with other users of the app.

Reviewed by MC

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Features:

Coffee Phone, by Andrea Sangiorgio, helps to connect you to other users of the app within your local proximity.

You’re able to “share a coffee” with another user, and this opens up a line of in-app dialogue. You have the ability to express yourself by creating your own individualized “coffee cup” as part of your in-app profile, although having access to the chatting feature does require a $0.99 one-time fee.  

The app also features a “search” function that locates all nearby bars in your area, although this feature can be a little bit confusing for anyone who has not been to Italy.

In many countries, including the US, a “bar” means a place to go for beer, wine, and other spirits. In Italy, however, a “bar” is usually a place to go for an espresso or some other coffee beverage.

One nice feature to this search option included in the app is the ability to see an estimated driving time to a bar/lounge location as well as the option to place a call through the app if reserving a table or finding out a wait time is desired. Still, all of these search features seem to be actions easily done with other already existing apps (like Google maps).

Appearance and Layout:

Coffee Phone iPhone App Review

Unfortunately, the graphics and layout of this app don’t really jump out and grab you.

Figuring out how to navigate Coffee Phone takes a bit longer than ideal; the layout of the app isn’t entirely intuitive. We think this is one area where the developers have an opportunity to improve this app .

While we are fans of how this app lets you customize your coffee cup, overall the graphics tend to be minimalistic. That can be a good thing but instead of feeling modernly simplistic the design of Coffee Phone comes across as more bland.

Overall, the appearance and layout of this app are probably best described as “functional” but nothing more.

Value:

While Coffee Phone is an interesting concept, and we can certainly expect it to be much improved over time, the app doesn’t really seem to execute its promised features very well.

Even though this app is free to download and create your own profile for, actually locating other users of Coffee Phone or using the in-app chatting feature requires an in-app purchase of $0.99.

As with any new social app, the key is quickly building a sizable user community. We’d like to see the base functionality free with IAPs for add-ons such as custom images for your cup. Monetization could also come from discreet coffee shop ads.

When there are already free “meet-up” apps on the market today, it seems difficult to recommend Coffee Phone as a strong competitor to already existing more popular apps.
