iOS 7: Has Android taken a bite of Apple?

20130613-200834.jpg

Its no surprise that Apple loves shade colors and adore simplicity, but Apple took the biggest risk of their name… A puke of rainbows.
Now, is it a huge leap or a major Fail? Let’s see.

The new iOS 7 interfaces has a blunt mixture of Windows 8 and Android… Why you ask?

Android and iOS 7
Control Center. More functionality obviously taken from android.
Translucent. The notification bar and advance controls gives a semi-clear transparent background.
Icon separated from the background (tilt screen wallpaper). This isn’t new, we first seen this in the S3 and perfected in the S4.

Windows 8 and iOS 7
Colors. More vibrant and colorful than ever. Bye simplicity.
Minimalism. Now me personally i worship minimalism but for apple? I think we’re not ready. Different colors for important details looks like a nyan cat, irritating and childish, what will happen to business and work? iOS 7 will be 100% play and entertainment.

Verdict. Its still the mass’s opinion if they like it, as for us its a Hate and Love relationship. What do you think about iOS 7 interface change and not many new utilities and functions? Comment below!

Skype App Review

Skype has been the leading app for video or audio call from user to user lately, since then, Skype has been a common name in our Desktop and even our phones and mobile devices.
Skype app doesnt need money to send a call to our distant relatives from all over the world.
The app is fluid and has easy in-app sign in or sign up. Chat is easy, with multiple tabs for various users, although the time delay and video lag is still an issue. Voice call and audio quality are good, and takes less Mbps in our network, but we still strongly recommend use a stable wifi over 3g.

Skype Directory is easy and fast, and online and offline icons are spot on. The main concern in skype app is the text chat interface, Skype decided to use The SEND button instead the return button in the keyboard, which we all are used to.
Skype still hasn’t included the multiple or group chat in iOS app, which was hard to deal with since Video Call is becoming more popular.

All in all Skype is still a great app, fast and fluid while it still can do the job right, and easy minute sign up account, the app is definitely a must-have for all ages, for school or work or just for Peer chat, Skype is the one to install in your iDevice.

Clash Of Clans App Review

The Backyard monsters for iOS, the game is the BOMB.
Clash of clans by supercell, has taken the iOS environment by storm, making it the first iOS exclusive app to dominate the app store top list of free games.
Create a village, train troops for global battle, join or create clan (group), chat with friends or global, attack and defend and so on and so on.

The game also adds personal preference with specials like Halloween or christmas theme.

The game also lets user to decorate their village, arrange arsenals and do more with magic or as they like to say it MAGIK.

Chat with thousands of other players in the world or chat and donate troops in your clan.
The game is fast, less to no lag and very well constructed BUT it may be free but in-app purchases are a little bit pricey than other apps.

20130530-182253.jpg

The gems they require are high and if you want a good base fast, spend your whole monthly salary on this, yikes! 😦

Items in the game shop are pricey too, i guess they make the stakes a little higher to boost profit in this amazing game.
But all in all this app is mind blowing and a must have, it also adds user competitiveness by placing leagues and top players worldwide or in your local country.

Downloads HD App Review

iOS sadly has restrictions, like downloading videos and files on the marvelous INTERNET.
Gladly a year ago i stumbled upon Downloads- a free app. It was the best file downloading experience, Youtube videos, music, mp3, pdf and almost all files that can be downloaded all in one app and a browser that tops Safari.
Again it has a limited download count, so i bought the very cheap Full version which is Downloads HD.

20130530-092756.jpg
And now every time i tap a movie or video i can decide to download it or not (that awesome power!) that works on mp3 and pdf!
An app that has a fast simple browser, has a independent photo library and music library and folder organization and you can switch to Safari browser and Firefox browser with ease… The price is a bargain!
Although barely updated and few to no crashes, its reliable and in short the app is AWESOME.
we have been using this app for more than a year now and we still love it.

fyi: long tap to save image if you use the app.

Backplane App Review

20130525-141119.jpg

This app review is for all the Little Monsters out there, yes it’s Backplane App sent by trixie77 to us.
Backplane isn’t really just about Lady Gaga, its a social app that combines Instagram and twitter where a user can follow a user and like post… Posts are divided into two Hot and New like 9gag more votes means in Hot page.
The app is unfortunately only available in iPhone and iPod, the app needs more compatible devices in iOS.

Above picture A fan art drawing of Gaga in her weird skull bones.
Below picture A handy notification bar for… Well notifications and settings.

Scrolling using the app isnt slow, knowing Gaga and iOS. The images take a period to load, and the app doesn’t get updated often.

Graphics are almost blurry, even with retina and Backplane is almost about Gaga.
But the app has just been released, we can bet more features will come soon and make it better knowing its growing population.

DUMB WAYS TO DIE app review

If you didn’t heard about Metro Trains Safety in Melbourne, Australia’s Viral safety video… You have been officially living under a rock.
With its savvy tunes, cute bean shaped faces, it catches many peoples attention and popularity online and iOS.
The safety video aims to teach people to be more careful in public transportation especially rail trains. But the free app aims users to have bloody gore of cuteness kind of fun that works!

20130522-170017.jpg
There it is, an untapped app of cute bean people dying… Er i mean cute people… Yay.

20130522-170108.jpg
The app it self is somewhat minimalistic with just a decapitated guy hanging and a start button.

20130522-170201.jpg
Yup, he’s right more cute and injured candy peole will fill up the train station… So much anticipation.

20130522-170331.jpg

20130522-170319.jpg
We take it back… That guy looks disgusting as hell. The game is a fast, straight forward game much like Impossible test but this is more natural looking and ad free.

20130522-170503.jpg
Every checkpoint in the game has life meter with 3… I mean 2 dancing injured beanie.

20130522-170616.jpg
One that got me addicted in play the game is when, this piranha, is trying to eat the dancing guy’s PRIVATE PARTS, not really a child friendly game… But who cares? Got gore!

20130522-170746.jpg

20130522-170756.jpg
Yup these are truly dumb ways to die.
But what really makes this game good is the Safety Pledge.

20130522-170900.jpg
It adds more of security and safety in the game, that makes it only not fun but educational which is pretty rare these days.

Our review? This game is epic and we recommend people to download this game immediately!
Guess who got happy? These guys…

Modern Combat 4 Game Review

Gameloft has delivered and raised the gaming expectation in iOS game platform, especially in FPS and TPS with products like NOVA series and MC series.
MC3 or rather the MC series is commonly dubbed “the call of duty mobile/on iPhone” which many will agree. No doubt MC marked its territory on the AppStore and including Android devices.
Sadly to say Modern Combat 4 disappointed us. But lets first look at the positive side of buying and playing MC4 zero hour.

GRAPHICS.
We cant deny it, the graphics on Gameloft’s games cannot be compared to others, i mean they even improved it in this game, looks like a stunning pc without retina, looks like a piece of art in retina.

MORE MAPS AND TERRAINS.
This is no surprise but they designed maps with sheer brainstorming and well thought multiplayer maps with levels and floors, settings like hotels, missile laboratory and others!

GUNS
Some weapons may be in there but they have improved its features and design and reload barrels don’t stuck into walls anymore!

GAMEPLAY
The most exciting about playing MC4 is its storyline, playing the games feels like playing and even controlling a movie with its Hollywood like plot and cinematic.
Controls are smooth and we can see little duration of loading missions than before. A new feature comes with this game… Gore we can toggle it for more realistic blood shed in the game… Who doesn’t love that?!

Now we can see the negative side and why don’t recommend buying MC4 for others especially multiplayer and online gaming lovers.

CONTROLS
as mentioned before MC4 has smooth controls but very easy to miss, the controls are fixed into place, no editing them to be bigger or move them that lacks personal customization in the game. We can feel the controls has been rushed in the development of the game, has only three control themes which is disappointing.

SLOW AND LAGS
gameloft did improve the graphics like theres no tomorrow, but the lags are horrible, especially in multiplayer when someone is about to shoot you. Running and jumping in campaign makes it more slower… Suggestion to this problem is turning off gore and other effects, gyroscope to make it faster… But then again thats what the portion we paid for… Graphics!

UNTIMELY DEMISE
we are all frustrated when we got shot or bombed in any online match… If w e could only have just more time in the life in multiplayer… MC4 is not it. 1-3 shots WILL kill you a pro in the game would still have at least 10 deaths in a single match. All players would not like that.

MORE GRAPHICS, LESS ANIMATIONS
MC3 has a start menu with a soldier just moving around and looking up to the planes… Which we personally love but i guess more graphics and less moving.

SUMMARY
if your a low tempered, COD loving gamer them go ahead and buy one but if your a Pro or a Noob with high expectations, just go ahead and buy temple run 2 its less laggy and more jumpy.

5.9/10
