This Week at 148Apps: December 24-28

Posted by Chris Kirby on December 30th, 2012

This week at 148Apps.com, everything was about end of the year wrap-ups and countdowns. Carter Dotson compiled an extremely helpful multi-part 148Apps Top Apps of 2012, and he also gave us his Favorite Things of 2012: "In particular, Super Crate Box and Super Hexagon both left me in states of constant desire, wanting to get that high score while tackling the immense difficulty both games presented. Yet there was one consistent thread in both: failure was usually my fault, the factor of poor execution rather than random chance. It makes success feel all that more empowering. The byproduct of it is constant failure, and frequent profanity usage."

Oprah has nothing on Carter. Read his full list of Favorite Things on 148Apps.

What's a New Year's celebration without pizza? Is it any wonder, then, that Amy Solomon at GiggleApps.com reviewed Bamba Pizza: "This is the fourth year my son will receive play food as a large part of his holiday and birthday gifts from my husband and me. Although he has different hobbies as well that are demonstrated in the other toys he plays with, not a day goes by that it isn’t a birthday for a doll or stuffed animal where pizza is always served, along with cake, cookies and many other selections.

Although I would never expect Bamba Pizza or other apps like it to take the place of playing with toys in the real world, my son also enjoys playing with these types of apps when away from the house or when lying in bed before or after a full night’s sleep, when play food items are not welcome."

Read all of Amy's review at GiggleApps.

The holidays also present endless opportunities for taking photos. AndroidRundown.com reviewer Tre Lawrence showcases a venerable iOS photo app, now making the transition to Android: "There was a time, not all that long ago, when cameras on phones were not too hot. The hardware was rudimentary, and the accompanying software bordered on the silly. Pictures were not that great.
Since then, it has gotten better… much better. So much so, that for many people, their smartphone cameras are the cameras for everyday use.

Snapseed (from Nik Software) is an app that looks to perfect the picture-taking experience. It is a photo-editing title that incorporates a lot of the features people have come to expect with apps of this type. Being chock-full of fan favorite filters definitely makes it an interesting offering."

By this time next week, we will be in 2013, so all of us at 148Apps would like to take this moment to thank you for your constant readership throughout 2012. Without you, loyal reader, we simply wouldn't exist! Thank you, and Happy New Year from 148Apps!

Grocery Shopping App Hits 1M Users, Creates Infographic

Posted by Kevin Stout on March 27th, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

ZipList, popular recipe search and grocery list app, has reached one million users and, to celebrate, has created an infographic with fun stats about how people are using their mobile devices to go grocery shopping.

The infographic includes stats including demographics of mobile phone users while shopping, ZipList’s usage growth between 2010 and 2011, the most popular items added to shopping lists, and random facts such as the most common cheese! Apparently, of the 50 top items added to lists, toilet paper was the only non-food item.

ZipList helps users create shopping lists, find recipes (and add those ingredients to their lists), scan barcodes, sync lists between devices, assign coupons and notes to each grocery item and more. While ZipList has helped over one million people, other significant accomplishments include four million recipes saved and twelve million grocery items purchased while using the app. CNET listed ZipList as one of it’s Top 100 iPhone apps back in 2010.

Check out the infographic here.
