This Week at 148Apps: November 11-15, 2013

Posted by Chris Kirby on November 16th, 2013

Apps Are Us


How do you know what apps are worth your time and money? Just look to the review team at 148Apps. We sort through the chaos and find the apps you're looking for. The ones we love become Editor’s Choice, standing out above the many good apps and games with something just a little bit more to offer. Take a look at what we've been up to this week, and find even more in our Reviews Archive.


Tilt 2 Live 2: Redonkulus

Tilt to Live 2 wakes up in a world where the tilt-based game feels almost dead. Free-to-play Skinner boxes rule the landscape, and here’s a $2.99 game that dares to toss things back to 2010 by having us tilt to survive? Well, great gameplay is timeless, and One Man Left has made Tilt to Live 2 feel both fresh and familiar. The core concept of “tilting to live” is the same, but nothing else is. Visually, the game has been given a detailed and fluid overhaul. It looks and feels incredibly lively. But all the power-ups from the original have been replaced with new ones. Now, there’s a brimstone ball that can be bounced around the screen, a dual-bladed energy sword, a shield that can collect dots to destroy them, a dot disguise that makes the player briefly invulnerable, and more. This was a fantastic decision by One Man Left – what it does is that it makes the game feel new. The game is innately familiar, but the ways that the problems are approached and solved are completely different. It’s the perfect approach for a sequel; one that other developers need to consider. --Carter Dotson


Stealth Inc

Stealth Inc., originally released for Mac and PC under the name Stealth Bastard and then later for the PlayStation 3 and Vita under its more family-friendly name, has been well-loved from the start. And rightly so as it mixes stealth and brutal platforming challenges so effectively. So how does everything hold up on iOS? Ridiculously well, actually. The basic premise of Stealth Inc. is to escape. Players control a very unfortunate clone (several, really, since there will be lots and lots of dying) whose only purpose is to sneak out of a facility that’s absolutely packed with death traps. Now that I think about it, all the place seems to do is make and kill clones. In order to guide their little fellas to figurative safety, players will need to solve a series of challenging environmental puzzles and make a bunch of intricate jumps while also trying to avoid detection at all costs. The game uses a simple left/right slider for movement along with jump and duck buttons to great effect, while a contextual button for interacting with computers and the like pops when needed. --Rob Rich


Hunter Island

Monster Hunter? Pokemon? No, this is Hunter Island from ZigZaGame Inc. A game that incorporates both catching monsters and fulfilling side quests in RPG style. Fans of the Pokemon games will feel right at home here, as Hunter Island manages to capture the tone and enjoyment of just what makes this style so engrossing. Anyone familiar with the rules of Pokemon will not find it difficult to work through. Players start off with the option of three different monsters – each with different elemental attributes. It is then the player’s job to decide whether they will be a male or female protagonist, but it doesn’t really make a difference because whichever one is chosen the other will still join them on their journey. --Lucy Ingram


Todo 7

Appigo’s Todo apps have been keeping many people organized for as long as the App Store has existed. After a major OS update in the form of iOS 7, it only seems right to come across Todo 7. The app fits into the aesthetics of iOS 7 extremely well, retaining its position as both powerful and visually appealing. Some people looking for a simpler solution might be disappointed to note that Todo 7 isn’t as minimalist as other To Do list apps, but once taken through the tooltips it offers, it proves to be quite effective. The main screen of Todo 7 offers the bulk of the information. A list of all tasks is offered along with a focus list which prioritizes overdue tasks and those needing to be done today, while a personalized list option offers more control over how content is arranged. Personalization options such as changing the color of each category, and even the list icon and background image, further adds to the control. --Jennifer Allen


Millie's Crazy Dinosaur Adventure-Millie Was Here, Book 3

Millie’s Crazy Dinosaur Adventure is an interactive title in a series of Millie Was Here – charming multimedia experiences children and their adults will really appreciate. Here Millie, a cute little dog, builds a space ship to hopefully transport her back in time to earlier that day – because after having arrived at her friend’s birthday party, she realized that she had forgotten her present. Things go awry though and Millie actually travels back into the time of the dinosaurs where she goes on an adventure, then safety arrives back in present time. --Amy Solomon


SnapinboxHD

Email is quickly becoming one of the most time-consuming daily tasks. Since most folks are mobile now, it’s necessary to have an email app that is speedy and efficient. SnapinboxHD does its best to make this chore as simple and seamless as possible. Combine all accounts into one inbox, and swipe left or right to organize it without even opening the message. Yes, this may save seconds, but seconds add up to minutes, which add up to hours. --Stacy Barnes


Other 148Apps Network Sites

If you are looking for the best reviews of Android apps, just head right over to AndroidRundown. Here are just some of the reviews served up this week:


AndroidRundown

Move

Gotta love Move. Its main draw is its simplicity. The game developer does a good job of ensuring that it is accessible enough to almost not even need a tutorial. The basic objective is to move colored, 2D circles to matching squares in the least number of moves. Every level starts out with a suggested number of moves, and not surpassing that is what is the key to earning the most stars. --Tre Lawrence


Pocket Harvest

Pocket Harvest’s premise will be familiar to anyone who’s played Harvest Moon. Players are given control of a small, struggling farm, with few staff and next to no resources. Before long though, the farm will be bustling with a huge variety of crops, animals, attractions and even tourists. Building the farm couldn’t be easier. Fields are placed one by one depending on what kind of crop they grow. Worker houses are placed nearby and if they are close enough the worker will tend the fields, sell the crops and earn cash. Of course there are many things that affect how much money they’ll make, such as the moisture of the field, the worker’s skill at harvesting, how well cultivated the crop is and so on. --Allan Curtis


Combat Monsters

Combat Monsters is a turn-based strategy game that involves the use of extras to win. It has one of the most thorough tutorials I’ve come across, and it does do a great job of ensuring that the 8-step learner gives the right pointers with regards to how the game works. What the tutorials do reveal are some nice media elements. The whimsical characterization work within this type of fantasy warfare, with simple animations that are fun without being too distracting. The playing area is a battle stage that is set in a circle with chess-like squares that afford movement of the pieces. --Tre Lawrence

And finally, this week Pocket Gamer reviewed Oceanhorn, Epoch 2, and Stealth Inc, started its new First Look video series, and welcomed in the new generation of consoles with a round-up of second screen apps. Check it out in the Pocket Gamer Weekly Round-Up.

iOS 7: Appigo Releases New Todo 7 Task Manager

Posted by Jeff Scott on September 18th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: PRACTICALLY VITAL :: Read Review »

Appigo has a long history in the App Store. This whole new version of Todo brings the design in line with iOS 7 and adds a whole new crop of features.


1. REAL PRODUCTIVITY. Unlike lightweight, freebie or cutesy list tools, Todo 7 is useful when you have a deadline, NEED to focus, prioritize and get things done quickly--from home or school projects to dozens of detailed work tasks.

Includes: Projects, Sub-tasks, Start Dates, Due Dates, Recurring Tasks (with detailed recurring options), Multiple Task Alerts, Overdue Tasks, Drag and Drop, Search, Print Lists, Folders, and much more.

2. PROVEN GTD METHODOLOGY. Todo uses the popular Getting Things Done approach with Focus To-do Lists, Starred Tasks, Multi-level Priorities, Quick Entry, Context, and Projects with Layered and Prioritized Sub-Tasks—all recommended GTD approaches.

3. BUILT-IN SYNCING. Sync automatically in the background with Microsoft Outlook, Dropbox, iCloud, Toodledo, Todo Cloud 7 and to-do apps installed on your other devices. Keep everything in sync and never be locked into a specific service—your data remains yours.

4. COOLNESS

-Geotagging. Reminds you of tasks when close to task location. This way you will remember the milk when you get near a grocery store.

-Contacts Integration. Link your task to a contact and call, text, or email "John" with one tap.

-Context. Organizes your task by activity or location (i.e. home, work, errands...) so you won’t be distracted with your “home” tasks while you are at work.

-Email Task Sharing. Share your tasks via email with your contacts. Keep everyone updated.

148Apps Reports: iOS 7 Launched Worldwide - We look at the OS and the apps created for it

Posted by Jeff Scott on September 18th, 2013

Today will see the launch today of iOS 7, the biggest update we've seen yet in the mobile operating system that powers nearly 600 million devices. With a new user interface, many new features, and back end features that have developers stoked, it's a pivotal day for iOS. We'll be covering the release of iOS 7 and apps developed exclusively for it throughout the day. Check back here often.

iOS 7 should be released around 10am Pacific time -- Carter has already taken the plunge and walks you though how to prepare for iOS 7, and how to upgrade to iOS 7.

If your device isn't upgradeable to iOS 7, don't worry you don't need to upgrade right away. Apple updated the App Store to support older versions of apps for older versions of iOS yesterday.

The iPod touch and iPad iBooks user guides are out. The iPhone one is probably waiting for the release of the iPhone 5s and 5c on Friday.

Security is a new focus for Apple and Carter tells us how to Use the Anti-Theft activation lock in iOS 7.

iOS 7 was originally announced at WWDC this past June. Before the announcement talked with people in the industry about their wishes for iOS 7. One of our biggest concerns is how iOS 7 is falling behind for family users. As a group, before the final announcement of iOS 7 we talked about what we liked about iOS 7 and hoped for in future versions. And I wrote about how important the announcement was for Tim Cook and Apple.

Jen talks to a bunch of Game Developers and gets their thoughts on iOS 7.


Apps Created or Updated for iOS 7

Lots of apps have been updated for iOS 7 to take advantage of new features from the background updates, to deeper backend stuff. But many have just been updated to match the visual style and user experience of iOS 7. Here are a few of our favorite updates:

Pocket Casts 4.0 podcast catcher
TED Talks informative video player
Slacker Radio streaming radio player
Flipboard mobile magazine app
Camera+ 4.0 best camera replacement app
Twitterific Twitter client
Todo 7.0 Appigo task manager
Addappt living address book
New York Times newspaper app
Pocket offline reader
Evernote information organizer
Mailbox Mail.app replacement
Pocket Informant Pro Calendar and Reminders replacement
Shazam the music identification app
AroundMe the local activities app
Springpad the information manager
GroupText! the most popular group text manager
OmniGroup Updates OmniFocus, OmniOutliner, and OmniPlan Productivity and pretty
Sky Live is an app for finding good stargazing times
HootSuite a professional Twitter client
Pandora the music streaming app
Quora the q&a social network app
PCalc is the best calculator replacement
Clear (task manager)
Roambi a great data visualization app
Cobook a contact manager app
Scanner Pro from Readdle a great document scanner
Perfect Weather a new sexy weather app
Reeder 2 an RSS reader


Around The Web

Around the web, many are also doing some amazing work writing about iOS 7. Here's a few of our favorites:

Rene Ritchie over at iMore has an amazing and exhaustive review of iOS 7.

TUAW takes a look at some great new settings in iOS 7.

MacStories hits a home run with their coverage of iOS 7 and has a great editorial on Living with iOS 7. They also have a great list of Tricks and Tips for iOS 7.

Our friends over at Pocket Gamer have a list of their favorite new features of iOS 7.

9to5Mac has a great interview with iOS app developers on working with iOS 7 development and design.

Appigo Introduces Todo Exchange Tasks

Posted by Jennifer Allen on May 30th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

In the past, Appigo has always done a great job of providing useful tools for those in need of organizing their lives and becoming more productive. Its products such as Todo and Notebook have continued to evolve, keeping consistently relevant for its users.

Today marks the release of a new app from the firm -- one particularly aimed at business-focused users. Todo Exchange Tasks gives that same to-do list app quality that regular Todo provided but it also enables users to directly access their to-do list stored on a Microsoft Exchange server.

Connecting up via Microsoft Exchange 2007 and 2010 using ActiveSync, it sounds so simple and that's because it is. Users can quickly view their to-do lists via their iOS device as well as create new tasks and mark them as completed. Task organization is also possible and everything is automatically synced.

For those who regularly access a Microsoft Exchange Server for work, this will be an essential purchase.

Todo Exchange Tasks is out now priced at $9.99.

Corkulous Now Allowing You to Organize Your Life for Free

Posted by Brad Hilderbrand on February 16th, 2012

Appigo has just announced that the standard version of Corkulous, their premiere organization and planning app, is now totally free. This basic version will include access to one large cork board, which they can use to virtually pin up tasks, collaborative projects, brainstorming sessions, to-do lists and more. If you're the type of person who has a lot of ideas but can't seem to get them corralled and organized then this might be the ideal solution.

Users can also opt for an in-app upgrade to Corkulous Pro for $4.99. The expanded version includes multiple cork boards, the ability to next boards, exporting and sharing options, and iCloud support. It also bears noting that both versions of Corkulous support Dropbox.

Appigo is known for their productivity apps, but previous work such as Notebook and Todo were considerably drier and focused primarily on business users. Corkulous is still very business-friendly, but many will likely find it easier to use as a part of their day-to-day lives. The ability to quickly pin up pictures, notes and more makes the app ideal for practically any collaborative or brainstorming occasion.

The app also comes along at an ideal time, as the explosion of Pinterest has many folks jumping at the idea of pinning things up and then chatting about it with others. Not saying this will happen, but if Appigo finds some way to integrate this app with the social media service then we may be witnessing the birth of a bona-fide juggernaut.

At any rate, this is now a free app that you can use to get your life in order. What are you waiting for? Get corking!

Appigo's Notebook App Comes To iPad And Adds DropBox

Posted by Greg Dawson on January 25th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :: Read Review »

Originally designed for the iPhone, Appigo's Notebook app has gone through a major update and is now a universal app designed to play nicely with the iPad as well. The productivity app is well known for offering a simple user interface and solid feature set to create, share and edit notes. The new 2.0 version is now optimized for Dropbox syncing, which allows the user to share notes on all iOS devices as well as Mac and PC platforms. In addition to sharing between the user's devices, this new support makes sharing with friends, family or colleagues even easier.

The update plays off the company's thought that adding a powerful collaboration tool was necessary for its users. The new version adds a familiar notebook interface with full-screen editing capabilities and overall the update seems to be a cost effective productivity tool for users with multiple iOS devices. The notes are saved in standard text format and is compatible with PC and Mac text editing applications. Notebook is available on the iTunes App Store for $4.99.

Appigo's Todo Apps to Synchronize With Upcoming Mac Version

Posted by Carter Dotson on May 4th, 2011

Appigo is developing a version of their task management app Todo for the Mac App Store. The app will come with a variety of features for Mac to improve the desktop platform experience, including Multi-Adaptive Windows, and Task Zooming. These are designed to help users view more tasks and more details on those tasks while on their Mac. As Calvin Gaisford, Appigo's CEO, describes it, "Todo for Mac breaks the rigid one-window app style and allows users to open multiple windows and customize them to match their workflows. However, what users of the current iOS versions will be excited about are the options for synchronization between the upcoming Mac version and the iOS versions.

Todo will be getting Cloud Sync options between Todo for Mac and the iOS versions. Synchronization will come in multiple flavors: Todo Online, a subscription service for $19.99 per year that allows you to sync up your versions of Todo between all of your platforms. The free, online-only version comes with a 14-day trial of synchronization between versions. As well, users can sync versions of Todo for free over local wifi networks. As well, the free third-party service Toodledo will be supported by Todo for Mac for synchronization, so Appigo isn't just limiting their apps to their own services - they're also supporting other services that users might want to use, including synchronization with the desktop iCal. No matter what service you choose for synchronization, you'll know that your tasks are being synced up between devices, however you choose.

Todo for Mac is currently in beta, with plan for release later this summer. Users looking to get their life figured out and synchronized up across all their platforms will have new options available in the near future, and more options available if they use Appigo's Todo software. While the synchronization won't be up to full swing for Mac users quite yet, Todo for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad are available now.
