Playground HD3 - ABC Edition v1.2.0 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked I think this app is very good. I really like that it is simple to use and easy to explain to little kids. I showed the app to my brother (5 years old) and he really enjoyed it. I only had to teach him how to play once or twice and he picked up on it. The graphic were very nice and the use of animals to teach the kids is very clever. The timer feature is a very nice add on.
Improvements In future updates I would like to see more games. Also maybe have the games seperated by age groups or have the games unlock as you finish previous games just so they kids will feel they are making progress. The timer feature might be improved by adding a password instead of holding down in the watch. Same goes for the settings. Also I think that 3 dollars is a bit pricey and needs to be lowered.
General review I think this is great app that can really help kids get familiar with the abc's. It is very simple to use and the games easy to play but very effective. I had my brother who is 5 years old try it out and he really enjoyed it. It also has a timer feature which stops your child from playing for excessive amounts of time. The price might be little high but can really help your child get ahead.

What I liked This app is a great idea. The story line is very deep and complicated. You buy your army and it is not just automatic, it adds another element to the game. The contorls are intuitive. Unfortunately I could not get to deep into the game because it crashed at least three time and I had to restart every time.
Improvements I like to play games with my home button on the side right and the game would not flip. Also the zoom should be kept constant, meaning if I zoom out and the click on one of the characters then it should not zoom back in. The crashing needs to be fixed. Maybe have a short tutorial in the beginning because it is very easy to get lost. Some of the thing like the skill I have no clue what they do. I did not really like the graphics but maybe some people do.
General review This game has the potential to be a great RPG but the crashing really kills it. It has a great story line and some great characters. I really wish that I could give it more then two stars but until the crashes get fixed and it gets some major updates it is almost unplayable.

5 Dice: Order of Operations Game v1 [text]

What I liked This is a great app that really makes to think about order of operations. I like that you can play with a friend so that you can learn together. I also like how you can select the individual arthritic sign that you want to use so that you can slowly build up your understanding.
Improvements The only issue with this app is that it lacks features, I dont really have an idea as to exactly what features could be add. On the other hand this app is free so maybe it does not really need anything extra.

I found that moving the individual 'blocks' was not as easy as it should be but maybe that is just me.
General review After using this app for a while you can really gain a keen understanding of how equations work and specifically understanding and manipulate the order of operations. This app can be very useful for your grade schooler to get ahead of his class. Great education app!

Cool Game Quiz (v1.0.1) [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked The ads are unobtrusive unlike other games in the same category, but unfortunately what I liked ends there. This app is an old and tired remake of so many apps before it, and a bad one at that. In my opinion, there is not much to like about this app.
Improvements The app needs a major revamp, in order for it to even be considered a contender. By major revamp I mean the entire app needs to be changed, all the way from the name till the images that you guess. The graphics are horrid, the answers are riddled with typos (see 'quaman'), all this and not even an original concept. Highly unprofessional.
General review This app is just bad, that is all there is to it. There would be some room for forgiveness if this were an original concept, but its not and therefore does not deserve any. This game is just copy past of games like IconPopQuiz but some how takes all the bad and none of the good.

CoverMe - Private Texting & Secure Phone Calls with Password Locked Safe Vault to Protect Secret Contacts, Text Messages, Personal Photos & Videos - V1.0.2 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked This app looks really good. It has some really cool features, like taking a picture of someone who is trying to 'break into' your private information. It is very easy to use and have very detailed discriptions readily available, you don't have to go searching for it some where else. Shake to hide is also very cool
Improvements There should be a way to change the image at the very beginning were you type in your password. When you type in your password wrong a few times nothing really happens there is just a message that give a time but it does not block password input. Also a way to set how many wrong passwords will trigger the camera.
General review This app is really good and with a few tweaks could really be the best security app on the AppStore to date. If you need a place to hide or keep any information secure on your phone then this is the app to do it with. The shake feature can be especially useful to quickly close the app.

Minesweeper, no guess V1.0 [text]

Link to the App Store

Rating  
What I liked This app is very simple and is what is sets out to be. I like the idea that you don't need to guess and it can be solved very time. It has your stats as well if you like that type of thing. The ads are unobtrusive and do not disrupt game play. Very good in general
Improvements Maybe the only complaint that I have would be that you have to pay to unlock certain things. I would maybe make it so that custom board would a regular feature because that is a big feature for most people and there are just so many other minesweeper games that have it they will not be willing to pay for it.
General review If you like playing minesweeper on your iPhone this is a very viable option. If you dislike that you need to guess and try to get lucky in other minesweeper game then this is the version for you. Very simple but that it what you want from a mine sweeper app.

Talking Duke 2 3.3.2 [text]

Rating  
What I liked I there is not much I like about this app. I find it quite vulgar with very low entertainment value. Making a the dog die and have diarrhea on command is not something that really appeal to me. Also there is not much in the way of playability either.
Improvements When you record voice, the app tends to miss the first few seconds of sound. I think the price for clothes/accessories is set way too high. Maybe more locations (park, beach, ect.) and more actions. I would make this app either more for kids or more for adults depending on the route you choose but now somewhere in the middle as it is now.
General review This is really not my type of app, but if you would like a dog to talk back to you in a funny voice or do some interesting actions then this could work. With some of the changes I noted ,especially making sure you capture the first few seconds of sound, this app could be ok.
