Junk mail. Yuck. Not only is it annoying, it’s also a terrible waste. All those circulars about sales no one cares about involving products nobody wants… At least those unsolicited emails from Nigerian princes don’t waste any paper. Well now there’s this neat little app that will theoretically put a stop to most of these unwanted advertisements.
PaperKarma is so simple in its execution it almost sounds like magic. All a user has to do is snap a photo with their iOS device’s camera and the app will (read: should) find the company responsible and take care of the rest. The rest referring to getting users off of the mailing list. It’s a mind-bogglingly simple concept, really.
Anyone with an iOS device and a thinning patience for junk mail should definitely check out PaperKarma. It’s on the App Store right now, and it’s on sale for free for a “limited time.” What’s the harm in giving it a try, right?
Now I’ll admit that I don’t do much driving nowadays because I use mass transit (i.e. the subway), but I did drive a lot once upon a time. And it was quite the pain to deal with all of the extraneous annoyances like traffic, insurance, and gas. Guess which of those problems Gas Logs addresses?
The latest app from JAS Appications allows users to track their mileage, their spending, etc… All manner of values can be adjusted to fit a user’s region, including gallons/liters, and a number of different currencies. Of course, it just wouldn’t be a JAS Applications app if it didn’t also include a super-useful GPS feature. Which it does. Yup, as expected Gas Logs can do all this in addition to finding nearby gas stations by using the iOS device’s built-in GPS.
Again, someone like myself who doesn’t even own a car won’t have much use for it but there are billions of people out there who drive, and at least millions who own an iPhone. Chances are good that there’s a decent market for something like this.
Create and customize a wildlife reserve. Manage various park minutiae. Upgrade facilities and inhabitants in order to bring in the big bucks. It sounds fairly typical of a good number of freemium park sims, but Fantasy Safari twists it up a bit. By adding fantasy creatures, naturally.
Dragons, frozen wolves, phoenixes and more. It’s a bit of a departure from the usual fare, to say the least. Now, thanks to EA Mobile, we can all try our hand at running our own zoo full of non-existent animals. 40 different non-existent animals, at that. 40 non-existent animals that can learn new abilities (i.e. fire breathing) as savvy players futz with their enclosures.
Anyone looking to try their hand at managing a theme park/zoo with a bit more… “flavor” can do so right now. Fantasy Safari is already on the App Store and, like most (read: all) free-to-play titles it doesn’t require any money to get started.
