Her/His app reviews

Animal Farm 3 in 1 - YogiPlay / v 1.0 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked I like how interactive the app is specially in the Sticker mode where I can place the sticker anywhere on the screen and hear each animal's cry. My 5 year old son is liking it on his iPad2 and seen him laughing a bit everytime he touch an animal to make it cry. My son also liked the Animal mode where he can learn how to spell or know every animal's name by clicking on it. The memory game is good too but my son doesn't play it that much.
Improvements I wish to see a spelling mini-game where players/kids will have to choose the correct letter/s to fill-up the missing letter on each animal's name. This way, kids can also learn how to spell while having fun. I think another mini-game where players/kids will have to choose the correct animal for each animal's cry in question. I think kids will have fun on these mini-games.
General review This app is good for your kids who wished to have fun and learn at the same time. I think adding a few more features or mini-games will make the kids enjoy this app for a long time. Maybe adding a feature where kids can trace and draw the animals and color them afterwards will make this app more enjoyable. This app is good for its price.

Jolly Jingle 1.1 [text]

What I liked I like the professionally recorded songs in this app. I like the female voice and my son like the choir voice. I also hear him sing a long specially in the Frosty's song. I also like the addition of an instrumental in each song. Me and my family can easily sing a long thanks to the instrumental and lyrics built in the app. I bought Jingle Bells, Frosty and We wish you. All are great.
Improvements I wish to see a Retina feature in this app. The current doesn't look that sharp or good on my iPad3. I also would like to see an option to change the Screen Orientation and lock it on my desired position. This way, I can easily use my iPad3's cover stand. I cannot use my iPad3's cover stand because it is locked on an upside-down position. Maybe adding a playlist or play next song feature would be nice. Current version only plays the same song again and again after it finishes. Maybe adding a feature to make your own playlist and or play the next song automatically would be nice.
General review This is a nice app specially for Christmas. The recorded songs are very professionally made. My son is having fun singing while playing with the interactive background. All the songs available in this app is great and most of them are my personal favorite. Just wishing to see "O Holy Night" and "12 days of Christmas" in the future update. Those are also my favorite Christmas songs. Also wish to see a Retina support for the New iPad.

Bo's Matching Game V1.0 [text]

Rating  
What I liked I personally love the song in the background. It was well done. My son loves to listen to it. I also like how this game had a voice that tells the name of each item. This feautre will let kids learn the name of each item while enjoying the memory game.
Improvements I think the mini-game should be improved or changed (the one with a sleeping child at the background). My son didn't like it or I think got bored fast since there is really nothing to do than to match the item by scrolling up or down. I think it is also a little boring because sometimes I need to drag and drag on the right selection screen to find the matching item. Maybe change it to a dream bubble. For example, the child is dreaming of this item and you will need to tap on the correct matching icon falling from his other dream bubble. I wish the background color can be changed to other color
General review I think this is a nice app to boost mine or my son's memory. The song in the background is very well done and me and my son like it. The voice telling each item's name is a good feature of this app. I just wish that the background color in the main menu can be changed to other color or at least change it to something more livelier. I also wish to see a feature where you can use the photos in your album to use in this pairing game.

Wild City 1.0.1 [text]

What I liked I like the graphics of this game. One of the best graphics I've seen for the same game's genre. I also like how easy it is to navigate in the game, thanks to the detailed graphics interface. I also like the mini-games in this app. Most games like this doesn't have a good mini-game to past time when you ran out of Energy and Courage. The addition of the Slot Machine and Poker mini-games are great for people to grab more cash and or past time until their Energy and Courage are restored. I also like how easy to interact or chat with other players with the use of Chat and Mail.
Improvements I would like to see a different theme for the Poker and Slot Machine mini-games when you go to other cities. Like a Vegas themed Slot Machine and Poker game if you are in Vegas, etc.. I also would like to see a Daily or Weekly Event where players need to complete a task to earn gold, cash or item. Daily Event like Defeat # of people in Fight Club, Win in Casino # of times, Do Crime # of times, etc..
General review This is the best social MMO game I've played on my iPad3. Graphics is very good and it's so easy to navigate with the help of the clean and detailed interface. I like the addition of the Poker and Slot Machine mini-games where I can spend time to earn Cash and or until my Energy or Courage are restored. I also like the addition of the Chat and Mail feature. I can chat and or mail people easily. This is highly addicting. Highly recommended game.

What I liked I personally like the awesome background music in this app. It fits perfectly with the theme of the app. I also like the Retina graphics on my iPad3. I also like how clean the interface is. I also like the effect when I use the Radar Gun. This app is very well done and professionally made.
Improvements I would like to see an Achievement feature added to this game and an online leaderboard. Online leaderboard would be based on how fast you finish the game on each class. I think it is also nice to see an online multiplayer where players compete with the fastest time finishing a game.
General review This game is very entertaining and educational. The background music fits the game perfectly. Graphics looks good on my iPad3's screen. Game is easy to play and understand. I just wish to see an online leaderboard, achievements and online multiplayer in the future updates.

Dingtone for Free Phone Calls, Texts & Walkie Talkie, V1.0 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked I like the simple design of the interface. Very easy to use and understand. I also like the Walkie Talkie mode where the voice recording plays automatically as I receive it. I also like the feature where I can easily receive and send message to my Facebook friends with this app.
Improvements Not sure if bug but sometimes, when I am trying to call my iPhone4, it doesn't ring or show any notification that I am calling from Dingtone. I am calling from my iPad3 btw. I also would like to see an ability to search for other people online. Like user will have an option if they want to make their account public or private only. If public, other users can search this user and invite him/her to add on his/her contact. Also, a native iPad resolution would be nice.
General review This is a great app to send FREE text, phone calls plus a cool Walkie Talkie feature where you don't need to play the voicemail to hear it. It plays as soon as you received it. I personally like the feature where I can also message my Facebook friends using this app. I only wish to see a native iPad resolution on the future update.

Claustrophobic, v1.1 [text]

What I liked I love the tilt control gameplay. Graphics looks great on my iPad3. I also like the background music in this app. I also like the feature where I can share my game's video replay and upload it on my Facebook or Youtube account within the app after a game.
Improvements First thing I noticed is that when I tried to use "Tweet", "Post to Facebook" or "Share Movie" after a game, it will return to the main menu. I can still do tweet, post to Facebook or share movie but after that, I can no longer choose another option since it will return to the main menu. Would be nice if I can do all 3 options. I also think it would be nice if you can add an optional virtual joystick or touch control for iPad users since it is hard to tilt the big iPad device specially to kids.
General review This is a good tilt control endless runner game. The graphics is great on my iPad3. Game is very challenging specially in the later levels. Game also have an online leaderboard and Achievements through GameCenter. I just wish to see another control mode where I can use a virtual joystick or a touch control.

What I liked I liked the simple and easy to use interface. I also liked the sound effects which are plain and simple but fits perfectly in the game. I also liked how I can share my result on my facebook and twitter account. I also liked the feature where I ask my facebook or twitter friends for answer.
Improvements Hope to see a within the app twitter or a pop-up like twitter send button. The current still opens the Safari app just to send on twitter, while sending through facebook is within the app only. I also think a BGM would be a nice addition. Maybe add a retro style music.
General review This is a good quiz game where players will be tested on how well they know their games, cartoons characters, fashion brands and beauty products. I can also involve my friends to answer some of the icons that I don't know by posting on my twitter and facebook account. Highly entertaining and challenging.

What I liked I like the feature where I can select the mode I want when reading the book. I can easily choose if I want the app to read the book for me or choose just make it a plain book. The read and learn is a great feature for kids to learn how to say each word they press in the book. I also like the activities available in the app. My son likes the paint mode.
Improvements I wish to see an easy share button on the Paint mode. Like add a "Share to Facebook", "Share to Twitter" or "Email" share button to easily share the painting on social sites. Current only have save to photo album. Maybe adding a Page selection screen would be nice too.
General review This is a great and entertaining storybook app that is very easy to use and have plenty of fun activities for kids to enjoy. This is a great and fun way for kids to learn about the Resurrection of Jesus. Each pages are well voiced. My son likes the Paint mode.

What I liked I liked the activities and paint mode. My son also liked the paint mode. He is using this mode a lot. Glad that there is also a save to photo album feature to save my son's painting. I also liked the sound effects on some pictures. I also liked the "Facts" on each page on the Advanced mode.
Improvements Hope to see a share to Facebook or Twitter feature in Paint, so I can easily share my son's work. Hope to also see an animated gif on each page. Like make an option if readers wanted an animated GIF or just a pictures on each page. Animated GIF can also be played again by touching it.
General review This is a very educational storybook app that is very easy to use. Using the Advance mode is the best way to read this storybook. There are lots of activities to play. My son loves the paint mode. I just wish that there will be a share to facebook or twitter button in the paint mode. This is another great storybook app. Hope to see more.

What I liked I specially liked the animated scene in each puzzle. This is the first time I saw a jigsaw puzzle game with animated scene. It's awesome. I also like the interaction after finishing a puzzle. I also like the background music. It fits the game perfectly.
Improvements I really hope to see a Game Center leaderboard support and achievements. I also think that adding a share to social network button after finishing a puzzle piece would be a nice addition to promote this app on social networks like facebook and twitter.
General review This is a unique jigsaw puzzle game for the iOS. This is the first jigsaw puzzle game I've played with animated scene. It's awesome. My son can't stop playing this game. The BGM fits perfectly with the game. I like the interaction at the end of each puzzle. My only wish right now is the addition of Game Center leaderboard and achievements.

What I liked I like how interactive each page is. There are many things to touch on each page that I think will make kids have fun while reading the book. I like how there were other fun activities to do in this app like the mini-games and the paint mode. I like the Berry Blitz mini-game.
Improvements I wish to see an improvement in the Berry Blitz mini-game. I noticed in the current version that you can only match fruits one at a time. You cannot match 2 or more at once. I also think adding a jigsaw puzzle or a dress em up mini-game would be a nice addition.
General review This is a good interactive book with 3 fun mini-games and a good Paint mode. Each page is very interactive that you can almost interact with anything you see in each page. The bonus mini-games are good, specially the Berry Blitz. This works perfectly on my iPad3. This is very worthy for its price.

What I liked I liked how interactive each page are. My son loves interactive books and saw him plays with the background more before changing page. I also liked the bonus mini-games in this app. I actually liked the Hatty's Avocado Roll mini-game. My son liked the Hatty's Hide-and-Seek game. Having those 4 mini-games together with this interactive book is worth the $3.99 purchase.
Improvements Hope to see a feature where you only need to swipe left or right to change pages on the interactive book. I also think that there should be a "Fill Color" option in the Coloring with Hatty. Other interactive app I tried had this "Fill Color" option where you only need to touch a part and the color will be filled on that part. I also think that there should be a save to photo album feature in the Coloring with Hatty where kids can easily save their work on the Photo Album.
General review This is a good interactive book app with fun mini-games. My 5 year old son loves the interaction on each page and saw him laugh at some scene. I personally liked the Hatty's Avocado Roll. It's a simple but challenging game. The mini-games alone are worth the $3.99 asking price. Great app.

What I liked I also like how I can create multiple account for every student/kid. I also like how easy to export the reports of each student into a CSV file and then send it via email to view on my PC. I also like the graphics. It's simple but colorful. The narration is very good.
Improvements I wish to see an option to add a photo on each user account. I think that would look nice. I also wish to see an option to change the background image. I also would like to see an option where I can change the gender and voice of the squid to female.
General review This is a good app to each kids and students on how to spell and pronounce words while having fun. The narration is very good. Simple graphics with colorful background. I like how I can easily export the reports for each kid or student and send them via email. This is a good and fun way for kids to learn how to spell and pronounce words.

What I liked I liked how polished the app was made. Graphics looks great on my iPad3's screen. I also liked that there are many fun activities to do in this app. I also liked the narration. Very professionally made. I also liked the feature to track my child's progress in the app.
Improvements I really do wish to see an option where I can change the screen orientation. I use an iPad case with stand and playing with the app would be much better if I can just use my iPad case's stand. I also think that adding the beaver flying around the background would make the selection screen more livelier.
General review This is a great, easy to use and fun educational app for the kids. The narration was done pretty good. There are plenty of fun activities to choose from. I mostly see my son playing the "Stop the Clock!" mode and seen him having fun with it. I like how I can keep track of my son's progress even when I am not looking. I think this app is worth its price.

Math Mathews : Mental Math 1.0 [text]

What I liked I like the main menu screen. It's polished and very easy to access. I also like the gameplay where you collect coins and keys. I also like the option where I can create a separate profile for each players. I also like how I can see other players score to compare with mine.
Improvements I wish the loading will be much faster. Loading is a bit slow in the current build. Also wish to see a fix for the slowdown/lag I am experiencing on my iPad3 when collecting coins. It lags when there are many coins in the screen. I also wish to see a power-up/s like coin magnet added to the game. Would be nice if there are power-up/s that player can buy before starting the game.
General review This is a very challenging math app for children and also for adults. I had fun playing this game in Expert mode. Would be better if there was a timer when trying to solve a problem in Expert mode. The gameplay where you collect coins and keys is fun. Glad that there was an option to create additional profile for other players. I can even check their score through the player selection screen. $0.99 well spent.

What I liked I like the simple design of the interface. I also like the narration. I like how I can easily choose a page I want by touching the Book icon. I also like the addition of the skip button in each page. I also like how I can easily refresh/chage each question by pressing the refresh button.
Improvements I wish to see a mini-game/s added to this app. Similar apps I've tried have a couple of mini-games. I think you should add a problem solving mini-game. I also think you should at least add a Background Music on the main menu and on each page because it is too quiet.
General review This is a great app to learn how to read and specially to learn about math. App is easy to use and understand specially for kids. You solve a problem on each page. The narration is great. I just wish there was at least 1 or 2 mini-games in this app to make it even better. Still, a fun way for kids to learn.

What I liked I liked the simple interface. The interface is very simple and very easy for children to navigate. I also liked the cute design of each character. I also like the narration in this app. I also liked that there are different type of activities in this app.
Improvements I just wish that there will be an additional mini-games where children can color or play a jigsaw puzzle game. I also think adding a male character will be nice. Choosing the Male character will also change the narration to a male voice. And I think, letting the other characters to play the kite would be nice. The Lion was the only one having fun with the Kite while the others were just watching him. Lol.
General review This is a great app for children to learn how to spell, write and read while having fun at the same time. Very educational app for children. This interface is very simple and well done for kids to understand easily. Lots of words to practice reading, writing and to spell. Different types of activities. Interactive and very educational app. Worth buying.

What I liked I like the cute design of the character. I also liked the nice animated intro screen of the company's logo. I saw my son laughed at it when the other letters starts chasing the letter A. I also liked the presentation of each item in the letter A-C. Not sure about the other letters since they are locked.
Improvements I would like to see an additional feature where the bear will sing a song about the items in each letters. Kids loves singing a long to a song. I also think that there should be a BGM on the main menu screen. I also think that the main menu screen should be animated. Like the bear is waving at the screen to make it more livelier.
General review This is a good educational app for kids to learn how to read and say each words in the app properly. This app is very easy to use for kids. The character design is good. I just wish to see a singing bear in the future update. I think it would be a nice addition since kids loves to sing a long to kiddy song.

What I liked I liked the graphics of this puzzle game. The physics of the bombs are good when they are dropping. I also liked the unique gameplay where I need to swipe the same colored bombs but must not touching each other to clear them. I also liked the sound effect in the game.
Improvements I wish to see a Gold coin bonus multiplier on the Boost list. Purchasing this will multiply the gold earned after a game in 2. You can also add this Boost as an iAP. Purchasing the x2 Gold Multiplier will permanently give the players a x2 bonus on every gold earned. I also think the background music should be a bit louder. The volume of the background music right now is low even after turning the music to max in the option. I also think that there should be a separate iAP to remove the ads only. I also think that there should also be an Online Leaderboard to add more fun.
General review This is a fun and challenging puzzle game with a unique gameplay. There are also a few boost to help me achieve a higher score. There are also additional power-ups after clearing or destroying a lot of bombs of the same color. I can also easily upload and share my game via Everyplay within the game. This is a good game but I think just need an online leaderboard for more fun.

What I liked I liked the vocal on each song. It's actually pretty good. I also liked the selection of the Christmas songs in this app. Most are my favorite. I also liked the feature to mute the vocal so that I or we can sing a long to the instrumental music. I also liked the feature to change the background designs to my liking. The blue one is my favorite.
Improvements I really wish to see an option to choose the voice type. Users can choose if they want to hear a male, female or a kid as the one singing in the song. I also think that there should be a share to social sites button in this app to promote the app. Maybe adding a Facebook, G+ or Twitter icons on the main menu.
General review This is a great app that is perfect for Christmas. The selection of the songs are good. There's even a mute button to remove the vocal in the song to make it an instrumental music. 4 nice background to choose from. Blue was my favorite. This app is pretty cheap for its price.

What I liked The first thing I liked in this app is that there are so many illustrations to choose from. I also like the ability to add stickers in the illustration. I also like the amount of colors and patterns to choose from to use on each illustration. I also like the background music in this app.
Improvements I would love to see a share to social sites button after finishinig an illustration for easy sharing. I think it is more convenient for parents or kids if this button exist with of course a lock like the other buttons. I also think that there should be a choice to save to in-app gallery and own gallery after finishing an illustration. Current build only lets you save to the in-app gallery. You need to go to the in-app gallery in order to save the illustration to your device's gallery.
General review This is a great coloring book app with lots of cool colors and patterns to choose from. There are so many illustrations to choose from. You can also add cool stickers to your illustration. You can even create or draw your own illustration. There is also a nice lively background music. Highly entertaining coloring app for kids.

What I liked I like the graphics in this game. Very colorful and cute. I am pretty sure kids will love it. I also like the background music in this game. Very catchy tune. Fits this game perfectly. I also like the voice-over in this game. I also like the interaction in this game. Brings more fun.
Improvements I hope to see an option to choose from different sets of animals before sailing. I also wish to see some mini-games in this app. I think a pairing mini-game would be nice where kids needs to pair or match an animal to their habitat. Coloring and puzzle would also be a nice addition too.
General review This is a fun way for kids to learn where each animal lives. Very colorful and cute design. Kids can also interact with the animals by touching them. The background music fits this game perfectly. Have lots of animals to help and bring to their habitat. Easy to play for kids. This is a nice interactive educational app.

ZyroSky [text]

What I liked The first thing I liked about the app is the ability to change the difficulty, length, speed and stars count in the Settings. This way, kids can easily adjust the game depending on their liking. I also like the funny sound effect when jumping. I also like how the game tracks each game played and everything you acquired during each game.
Improvements I think the background music should be changed. I also think that Zyro should be at the left side of the camera and not on the right side. It is much harder to avoid a gap with a very short time to react because of Zyro being at the right side. I also think that there should also be two modes, Normal Mode and Custom Mode. In Normal mode, you get to play with a set of levels without the ability to customize the difficulty, etc.. In Custom Mode, players can change every settings in the game. I also think that the Main Menu should be changed. Maybe make Zyro have a running animation.
General review This is a fun game for kids with very simple tap control. The graphics is pretty simple though. Funny sound effect when jumping. I like how I can fully customize the difficulty of the game. I can adjust the Length, Speed, Difficulty and stars in the Settings with ease. I like how I can keep track of my progress on every time I play. This is a fun game that needs a bit more features to be better.
