Chris Hall

Senior Writer with the 148Apps Network since February 18, 2009

Sitting comfortably in the Arizona desert, Chris Hall writes all he can while not fiddling around with his iPhone. He is an avid sports fan, loves strong coffee, and is in need of a better office chair. Be sure to challenge him to a Game Center throw-down. He'll talk a bunch of trash, but he's really only good at Ms. PAC-MAN.

Chris is not currently writing for the 148Apps Network.

Grim Joggers Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Grim Joggers isn't the best entry into the endless running genre, but it is much better than I was expecting. Expect a few chuckles.

Sacred Odyssey Review

Sacred Odyssey Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Sacred Odyssey is Gameloft's latest cloning, this time of Zelda. Like always, it has great graphics and deep gameplay, but it's just not quite the Nintendo classic.

Etolis Arena Review

Etolis Arena Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
I like the basic Running Man concept, but Etolis Arena definitely suffers from a lack of purpose.

Mandala Memory Review

Mandala Memory Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
It's easy to respect the amount of effort that went into the production of Mandala Memory, but at the end of the day it's just a simple matching game.

Portal – Full Screen Browser Review

Portal – Full Screen Browser Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Full screen is nice, but no matter how hard they try, nothing out there can quite match the brainless (in a good way) browsing experience that Safari offers.

Megan and the Giant Review

Megan and the Giant Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Megan and the Giant has an alright story with a very family friendly vibe, but something about the game mechanics turns me off.

Cop Review

Cop Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Point and click adventures can be quite good, but Cop is a bad control induced headache.

Gravitrixx Review

Gravitrixx Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Casual gaming meets the child of Tron and Orbital to make a game that just feels soulless. If any game needed a background story, this one is it.

Hysteria Project 2 Review

Hysteria Project 2 Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Hysteria Project 2 is definitely the scariest, most immersive game in the App Store, but you know what, I just died again. I'm so sick of getting killed in this game.

AbbleDabble Review

AbbleDabble Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Abble Dabble is fun and different, but most traditionalists will want to stick to Scrabble and Words With Friends for their slick user interfaces.

Legendary Wars Review

Legendary Wars Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Legendary Wars is a solid side scrolling castle defense game, but it requires more micromanagement than I'm willing to put in.

Metro Ski Challenge Review

Metro Ski Challenge Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Metro Ski Challenge is a fun little downhill skiing sim, but the whole experience leaves me uneasy.

Movie Stiller Review

Movie Stiller Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Movie Stiller will definitely make your videos look smoother, but nothing can fix the Blair Witch Project.

Honk Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Beat the ongoing struggle to remember where your car is and how much time is left on your meter with Honk. It's a life saver.

mList Review

mList Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
mList doesn't overdo it with bells and whistles, but that's part of what makes it great. Pick it up for its great iOS integration and the slick interface.

Task Ave Review

Task Ave Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Task Ave is a great app with a great looking interface, but a complete to do list it is not.

BulleTrain .22 Review

BulleTrain .22 Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Downsized Games sticks it to... er... Elaborate Acquisitions with a blatant knock on their mega corporation "man"-ness.

NAVV USA Review

NAVV USA Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
NAVV USA gets the job done, but the clunky UI and the bizarre use of a non-standard keyboard baffle me.

Strange Rain Review

Strange Rain Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
People will swoon over Strange Rain's artsy demeanor, but the experience is short lived and not worth my money.

Tracknburn Review

Tracknburn Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Tracknburn is a solid calorie/exercise tracker (more solid than most), but it needs to be even simpler for people to actually use on a daily basis.

LIVESTRONG MyQuit Coach Review

LIVESTRONG MyQuit Coach Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Quitting smoking is about as tough as learning Chinese, and like the foreign language quest, it definitely helps when you have some solid support on your side.

Wolfram Music Theory Course Assistant Review

Wolfram Music Theory Course Assistant Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Straight fact-finders will love the iciness of Wolfram Music Theory Course Assistant, but the average Joe wants a bit more soul in their music theory. Give the app some life Wolfram! C'mon!

Nike Training Club Review

Nike Training Club Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
As expected, the Nike Training Club app is as smooth as a babies bottom. This is as pretty as workout apps get.

Push-Up Wars Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
There are a ton of puh-up apps in the App Store, but none make you prove your worth quite like Push-Up Wars.

Social Sudoku Review

Social Sudoku Review

Last Line of Defense Review

Last Line of Defense Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
There's really nothing wrong about the super conservative Last Line of Defense, but there isn't a whole lot to love either.

Alice’s Fabulous Fall To Wonderland Review

Alice’s Fabulous Fall To Wonderland Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Accelerometer based gravity falling games can be fun, but Alice's Fabulous Fall To Wonderland will put you in the loony bin with its wonky gravity system.
