Myst – Pick of the Week

Having been playing this game for the past couple of weeks, I have thoroughly enjoyed playing it. Many of you will probably know this game, some of you may not. For those of you who don’t , Myst is a complex puzzle game in which you must find a way of a deserted island/world. The footprint of the game is somewhat large, but worth it (about 720MB.) I really liked the sound the game provided, as they didn’t go short on sound design. I...

Pros: -Sleek Interface -Sounds & animation to go with each “screen” or tap -Complex conversions Cons: -Takes quite long to update currencies at app start up (quicker in airplane mode, due to currencies not updating) -“Wheel” ‘clicks’ into place rather than smoothly rolling. 4.5/5 $0.99 Overall: ConvertBot is by Tapbots – the developers of WeightBot and for those of you that love the way the application operates, this one...

Vine2Wine

Pros -Easy Navigation -Interesting and quick navigation within terminology lists Cons -Not all the grape varieties have pronunciations -No way to add notes. Overall I think this is a neat little reference guide. While you might find more information about each of the term on the Internet (and I’d like to see the option for more information on the grape varieties). I think this application handles the information very well and...

Pano vs. Panorama

So what do I think is the better app? Panorama. Read below to see why. Versus Overall: I find Panorama app the winner as I like the ability to use as many photos as it takes to complete my Panorama. Even though there is an extra step involved (compared to the Pano app) in adding the next picture. I like the small preview as I can check to make sure everything is looking okay. I also really like the ability to choose the different...

GeoDefense – Pick of the Week

Current favorite for this week is GeoDefence. I was a bit hesitant in getting it as I had fieldrunners, however, this game is just as cool. It has more upgrades and towers also the main thing is that the path is created for you and you have to set up the towers along the path. [$3.99 – iTunes Link] You might also find this app at a lower price as it goes on sale quite...
