App-tastic!

 

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.

Blood Bowl

 
Bloodbowl_tablet_05

When translating a nearly 30 year old tabletop game like Blood Bowl into a digital format, the folks in charge have to make some decisions. Craft a fairly robust in-game tutorial to ease new players gently into this somewhat complicated quagmire? Or just say “screw it,” assume the target market is going to be almost entirely existing fans of the product, and leave the newbies to sink or swim? Take a guess which direction Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios went with this one. For the uninitiated, Blood Bowl is what would happen if somebody tossed American Football and Rugby into a blender and poured the resulting slurry through a filter made out of the Warhammer fantasy universe. This violent team sport, played by such Warhammer staple races as Orks and Skaven, doesn’t exactly cleave to either of those two inspirations, however. This almost-familiarity players might feel is the entry point where things start getting complicated. –Rob Thomas

Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery: Episode 2

 
jacob8

The sequel to Episode 1, Jacob Jones and the Bigfoot Mystery: Episode 2 is just as pleasant but far too short lived – clocking in at only around an hour. Sure that might be a fun hour of solving puzzles, but it never quite gets going. Jacob and Biggie head off to the Crackskull Mountain to solve the secret of Biggie’s childhood, amongst other things. The writing is suitably witty and entertaining, with a smattering of puzzles to break things up, but that’s the problem: it really is only a smattering. 14 puzzles are all that are available here, and while they’re fun and well designed, they’re not particularly original. –Jennifer Allen

Time Tangle-Adventure Time

 
advtime4

Using the colorful and immensely popular license of Adventure Time comes Time Tangle – Adventure Time, a title that’s keen to avoid being just another Endless Runner, but fails to truly take advantage of its small sense of purpose. Each session involves spinning a wheel to see what kind of activity must be completed. These generally involve either chasing something, collecting something, or beating something up. The controls are the same but the change in objective does help make you think there’s more to Time Tangle – Adventure Time than there actually is. –Jennifer Allen

iBattz Mojo Refuel Aqua Case

 
IMG_0060-600x321

I demand a lot from my electronics. Since I became disabled and lost my ability to write, I’ve depended on my touch screen devices for everything – especially my college work. Being in an environmental biology program means I’m in the field a lot in many weather conditions. Naturally when it rains I need a waterproof case, but my phone always runs out of juice before the day is out. Most battery cases didn’t offer the waterproofing that I need; until I found iBattz’s new case. The iBattz Mojo Refuel Aqua S Case (what a mouthful!) is pretty spiffy. The case can be used to extend battery life, then when you need waterproofing it takes less than a minute to switch it over and lock it up tight. I’ve been using the case for almost two weeks now and have noticed the good and bad of it. –Jade Walker

Micromon

 
micromon5

It was bound to happen one day, wasn’t it? Yes, Micromon is currently the nearest you’re going to get to Pokemon on your iOS device. Fortunately it’s pretty fun, too. There’s one downfall though, and it’s a pretty obvious one – those pesky in-app purchases that often get in the way of such experiences. First up, Micromon is gorgeous to look at. It doesn’t offer quite as many monsters to capture as a Pokemon game, weighing in at just over 130, but each of them is delightfully animated and appealing. The story within Micromon isn’t particularly gripping, staying quite formulaic, but that’s no great hardship. –Jennifer Allen

Slingbox M1 Hardware

 
slingbox-m1

I don’t know about you all, but I use my iPhone and iPad to watch Netflix videos all the time. It’s just so handy to be able to pull up a streaming video right before bed or to watch something else while the TV is in use. Well the Slingbox M1 is kind of like that; kind of. It’s also quite a bit different, but no less interesting. The Slingbox M1 essentially lets you broadcast the signal from your cable box to your iOS device and your computer – with the appropriate apps, of course. This means that you can use your iPad as a second screen, watch something on TV without moving to whichever room has the TV in it, or even catch up on local news and sports while you’re out of town. So long as you have an internet connection you can stream the signal from your cable box straight to your other devices. –Rob Rich

Master of Craft

 
2

Master of Craft looks to be an engaging game that merges key gaming genres in a tidy package. At its core, it’s all about simulating an economy of crafting. Off the bat, the busy animation of the game easily draws one in, with bright colors and vivid landscapes. If the developer’s goal is to please people that are iffy about the game at the start, it is mostly successful. The rustic vibe combines well with the whimsical representations, and the overall visual feel is that it is playful and serious at the same time. –Tre Lawrence

Suits and Swords

 
21_to_wint

Suits and Swords is much like Blackjack version of the venerable and well received Sword and Poker. While a good ideas does a simpler game like Blackjack have the legs to support an RPG? Suits and Swords has a rather amusing story. The majority of things and characters in the story are named after card related things. The main character is called Black Jack, he’s a solider or Battle Jack and the villain is an evil disembodied head named Joker. He’s pretty serious.. –Allan Curtis

Super Heavy Sword

 
Sword2 (1)

Super Heavy Sword is a classically styled platformer, which aren’t all that common on the Playstore. Monster Robot Studios have freely admitted that the game is a homage to the astonishingly successful Mario games. Indeed the game feels like a mix of Mario 64 and the original Super Mario Bros. With the big N’s reluctance to bring the overalled plumber to Android, can Super Heavy Sword full the gap? Super Heavy Sword opens with a scene of Pike, the Hero and Lucinda the princess. A bunch of enemies roll in and amazingly don’t kidnap Lucinda but rather begin destroying to land,. Now it’s down to a lone warrior and his girlfriend to stab them all and restore peace. –Allan Curtis

And finally, this week Pocket Gamer weighed in on BioShock for iOS, provided a complete database of Micromon’s Micromon, found nine celebrities besides Kim Kardashian with their own mobile games, and found eight games that you wouldn’t be able to play if it weren’t for some dedicated fans. And it’s all right here.

Commonly found on the App Store are dozens (or even hundreds) of apps that accomplish the same task. And that being the case, it’s awesome when you find a new app that is unique — or mostly unique — in the problem it tries to solve. Pocket Wine Pairing is a new app from Wine Paradigm that fits this scenario; it tries to help you find wine to make your dining experience the best it can be, and tells you what wines would go best with the food you choose to eat.

The app features a “Do’s & Don’ts” section depending on the type of food you’re eating along with a “Quick Guide To Food Types,” which gives you a quick look at how to pair each food type with wine.

Fantastical 2 for iPad is Now Available, Includes New Fantastical Dashboard

Posted by on April 2nd, 2014
iPad Only App - Designed for iPad

Fantastical 2 from Flexibits, known as the most fantastic calendar available for the iPhone, was this morning released in the larger iPad form-factor. The app ships with all of the calendar features you love from the iPhone version, including its seamless iOS reminders integration, the ability to open links in third-party browsers and apps, the ability quickly search through your events and reminders, and most importantly, its language parser that allows you to create events in plain English.

But the iPad version of Fantastical 2 features the new Fantastical Dashboard, which allows you multiple ways (such as DayTicker, week view, or full-screen week view) to view your events and reminders in a way that suits you best. And your Fantastical Dashboard can be switched between these different views with a simple gesture. Overall, this app is a great addition to the Fantastical family, leaving only the Mac version yet to be updated to the “2” version number.

You can get Fantastical 2 for iPad on the App Store for $9.99.

Known for its crude and hilarious TV shows, Comedy Central this morning released the first version of its iOS app. As goes with many other TV station apps, Comedy Central allows you to watch a huge amount of full-length TV shows – that is, if you sign in with your TV provider account. And sadly, only select partnered TV provider accounts are going to work with the app (notably, Dish Network is missing).

But if you really want to catch up on the latest episodes of The Colbert Report, South Park, and other shows, this is the app to go to. These full episodes will carry ads (even after logging in), but you won’t watch as many as if you were watching live TV. The app also features stand-up specials, archived TV show selections, and the ability to share clips with your friends.

You can get Comedy Central on the App Store for free.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Color Splash has been on the App Store for a very, very long time. Essentially, the app lets you take a full-color photo, highlight the part that you want to stand out, and make the entire image black and white except that specific point of focus. It’s a cool effect, and not many apps can provide the same. But this senior member of the App Store has received a much-needed update, which you can download right now.

Version 3.0 of Color Splash updates the app to have an iOS 7 aesthetic, which gives it “a sleek new look and feel” according to the update notes. The update also packs a new “hue shift” adjustment slider which allows the user to change the colors slightly within the image being edited. Finally, the previously-removed option of displaying the outline of the brush while painting has been brought back.

You can get Color Splash, if you don’t already have it, on the App Store for $0.99.

UpTo originally launched in 2012, hoping to revolutionize the way we use our mobile calendar by making it just a bit more social. Now, more than two years later, the app is getting a facelift and a new breath of life with what the company behind the app is calling a relaunch; they feel they needed to start over to truly do the calendar right.

Microsoft Office, which debuted on the iPhone in June of last year, is finally expected to come to the iPad next week via Satya Nadella’s first press event as CEO of Microsoft. Members of the media have been receiving invites to this supposedly mobile-first and cloud-first press conference, and according to sources for The Verge the event will mark many major announcements – with Office coming to Apple’s tablet being only one.

The iPad version of Microsoft Office is expected to be much like the iPhone version, and as such will require a subscription to Microsoft’s Office 365 service to be able to edit documents. Document types supported in this mobile version are the same as the iPhone version; you’ll be able to edit within the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps.

We’ll be sure to let you know here at 148Apps when the app is officially announced.
