With Age of Wind 2 you are able to escape for a little while and live exciting adventures sailing a brand new galleon.  Age of Wind 2 propels you into the heart of the action from the start.  Besieged on all sides by enemy ships, you have to fight tooth and nail to stay alive and to learn the controls.  You are left for dead and collected and given a new ship, and by extension, the ability to return to sail the oceans with quests to complete and revenge to be taken.  Age of Wind – An ...Hier Weiterlesen

Accounting Bad Debts iPad App – Get Your Finances Back On Track

July 23, 2012 // 0 Comments

Firstly, I do like the irony of selling an App that is supposed to help out people who are in debt.  It would have tickled me if they had advertised it as no-money down, just a simple monthly subscription locked in for a year with a massive penalty for missing a payment.  Alas, however it is just a one off payment for this app. It is based on a homework problem, for which you enter your details.  Amount of money expected, and the amount you made incidentally (e.g. selling your cd player), as ...Hier Weiterlesen

Inner Ear – Drag & Drop Stucture Identification – A Review

July 22, 2012 // 0 Comments

Inner Ear – Drag & Drop Stucture Identification is an educational app, and you have guessed it it is all about the inner ear, and how it works.  There are a lot of details about the workings of the inner ear, as well as remarkably highly colorised pictures.  When you feel that you have learnt a little about the inner ear, or you already know a fair amount about the inner ear then you are able to put together models via the app.   The Inner Ear – Drag & Drop Stucture ...Hier Weiterlesen

X is for X-Ray for iPad (Review)

May 9, 2012 // 0 Comments

This app offers an x-ray view of twenty six ordinary every day objects.  The images act like objects, so that you can swipe and rotate them with just your fingertips.  You can also double tap to get a stereoscopic option.  You can also zoom in closer to see terrific detail. The recommended age range is more for the pre-teens and under.  It is mildly interesting for adults to see the x-ray pictures of every day objects, but reviews claiming that you will be spellbound are taking it a little ...Hier Weiterlesen

Where’s my Water for iPad (Review)

May 8, 2012 // 0 Comments

Disney created the lovable creature swampy in this super cute game Where’s my Water.  He is no Kermit the frog, but then neither are most things.  There is a free version of Where’s my Water, but unlike the shopping baskets in my local fishing pond, you may end up hooked.  Once you are addicted to the free Where’s my Water version, you will find it comes to an abrupt halt, at which point you can buy the very reasonably priced (unusual for Disney) full version, where you ...Hier Weiterlesen

Solar System for iPad (Review)

May 7, 2012 // 0 Comments

This book was created with the help of the author Marcus Chown, who takes you on a tour through the solar system and displays the planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft that surround the Sun in our cosmic backyard.  The book has a lot of three dimensional images and a lot of information on the objects displayed.  This is not just a pretty 3D picture book.  It gives textual information movies, animations, pictures and very detailed facts with a basis in real science.  The book is ...Hier Weiterlesen

iPad App – RagDoll Blaster 3 HD (Review)

April 9, 2012 // 0 Comments

RagDoll Blaster 3 HD Rad Doll Blaster 3 HD I dislike using the term “its like……” because where it may be true that some people take their creative inspiration from popular ideas, they should be judged as they stand alone.  A lot of the world’s most popular ideas are inspired from other places.  And so is RagDoll Blaster 3. Indiana Jones and Star Wars are ideas inspired by old western and Samurai films for example.  Then there are times when somebody does it wrong but gets popular, ...Hier Weiterlesen

iPhoto for iPad: An Overview

April 7, 2012 // 0 Comments

iPhoto App for iPad I love testing new applications (as you already know ;-)) so no wonder I got iPhoto for  iPad quickly. Not that you can take really good photos with your iPad 2 (at least not when the light is not 100% great) – this is really a big minus – but you can sort your photos properly. Still, I wouldn’t have bought it without the function “Journale” – as a scrapbooker this definitely convinced me because I can create nice memories with it and ...Hier Weiterlesen

Photogene for iPad (Review)

March 26, 2012 // 0 Comments

I am unsure just how much I like Photogene.  Like an overweight goal keeper, I am caught between two posts.  In essence it is a photo editing software, with a few extra little features like adding speech bubbles.  It doesn’t really have enough features to be called a photoshopping app, and that is why I have trouble reviewing it. It is a simple and easy to use photo editor, but because it is only a simplified version of a photoshopping program, then one must ask “why bother?”.  You ...Hier Weiterlesen

Internet Radio Box (iPad App Review)

March 20, 2012 // 0 Comments

The internet radio box is a means of getting the radio stations of the world come through the internet via your app.  It is not actually absorbing or receiving radio waves, it is simply streaming the music of radio stations from the internet.  You may listen to over 40,000 radio stations from RadioDeck, SHOUTcast Radio and Icecast Directory.  You can listen to free, independent, commercial and local stations from around the globe.  You can pick from the radio stations on offer, or you can ...Hier Weiterlesen
