Wild West Pinball iPhone app Review

Description Wild West Pinball iPhone app:

In the Wild West Pinball iPhone app you will be able to play one of the most realistic 3D pinball games around.  There are currently over 3 million players that are involved so it gives you a lot of competition to work against.  The overall theme of the game is especially fun since it takes place in the Wild West.  You will have to hit all of the targets, complete all of the missions and try not to lose any of the balls in order to gain the highest score and move up in the global rankings.

Features:

  • This app features a brand new 3D engine that has been largely improved over other pinball applications
  • As you progress through the game you will come across a lot of different missions you will need to perform and also checkpoints that you can get to
  • There are also a lot of different hidden locations that you can find within the game
  • The physics engine is probably the most impressive part of the game and you will feel like you are at a real arcade playing pinball
  • You can unlock a mode where there are multiple balls flying around at once
  • There are a few different camera effects and there are also two main modes that you can pick from in order to view the game
  • You can save your game at any point as well as load it from where you left off
  • There are a bunch of unique sounds in the game that will keep it fun and exciting
  • There is voice management from a computer that is on board
  • There are also a variety of different leader boards including the local high scores as well as the global high scores
  • You can even use the table tilting function to add some variety

Conclusion:

This app has had a few mixed reviews.  For one, the physics table on this app is actually pretty amazing.  The way the ball moves up an down the table is as real as it gets.  On the down side, the tables aren’t all that fun.  There aren’t a lot of targets to hit to get points, and there are a few spots that are just impossible to keep the ball from going down the hole.  Other than that, it is a great idea and with a few improvements could be a really fun pinball game.  The game currently has a rating of 3 1/2 out of 5 stars and can be downloaded off of the market for $0.99.

aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app Review

Description aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app:

Do you have small items around the house that you wish you knew how much they weighed?  With the aScale Pro – Balance Pro iPhone app you can take these small objects and just weight them with your phone!  You can find objects such as jewelry, rings, money, pencils, or any other small item that you can think of and you can accurately weight it withing 10%.  The main guideline is that all of the objects that you measure need to be between 1 and 20 grams because anything heavier than that could actually damage your phone.  This app uses four different units of measurement including carat, gram, grain, and ounce.  This scaling app is a great utility to have around and can be used for professional or casual matters.  The iPhone actually uses the accelerometer to help it turn into a kind of mechanical scale that can manage all of these tasks.

Features:

  • This is a little scaling app that you can use on your iPhone.  It uses the accelerometer to be able to weigh small objects and give you the precise weight of each of them
  • To give an example you can do the following:   First of all place you finger on some kind of flat surface that you have available.  You can use a table, chair, or even the floor in order to do this
  • Once you have done this then put your iPhone on top of your finger, making sure all the while that it is still in balance
  • Once you have balanced the phone then you can press the calibrate set button on top to make sure that the balance is correct
  • Next, find an item that you would like to weigh.  This could be anything, including a stamp, a pencil, a ring, a coin, or any other small object that won’t damage your phone.  Then put this item inside of the blue circle
  • With how heavy the small item is, the phone will actually tilt like a mechanical balance to be able to show you just how much it ways.  This app does all of this and makes sure that has an accuracy of 10%

Conclusion:

This app pretty much does exactly what it says it will do.  Which is a good thing.  It doesn’t have a lot of extra features but it still is a fairly cool idea.  This app has gotten a rating of 4 out of 5 stars by iPhone app users and can currently be downloaded for $0.99.

The Holy Bible King James Version iPhone app Review

Description:

There are a lot of different free versions of the Bible out there, however not all of them are great ways to navigate through the Word of God.  The Holy Bible King James Version iPhone app is a paid version of the Bible and lets you navigate through the app easily and efficiently.  One of the great things about this version is the ability that you have to actually search through the complete version of the Bible.  This search function works great and saves you the hassles of having to manually find books and chapters.  You can also record any audio notes that you want.  This way when you receive revelation or inspiration from a certain scripture you can then just speak your mind without having to try and type it out on your phone.  The King James version is the original English translation of the Bible from 1604 and was initially published by the Church of England in 1611.  There are so many different translations of the Bible now that sometimes people can lose the truth in translation. This translation has held true through the test of time and is sure to enlighten you and make you into a much better person

Features:

  • There is a bookmarking feature that you can use to be able to save your favorite passages for future reference.  This is a great way to save inspirational scriptures and refer back to them at a later time
  • You have the ability to write down notes of your thoughts and impressions that you will have as you are reading through different passages of scripture
  • You can view the app in two different modes depending on what is most comfortable to you.  This involves both the landscape and portrait modes
  • There is also a few different lighting modes that you can do as well. There is a day mode where it is optimized to be able to read during the day and a night mode to help you see better in the dark
  • Once you have downloaded the app you won’t have to have any kind of internet connection in order to view the app.  This offline reading mode is great so you can read whenever you get a chance
  • The app will automatically open up to the last spot that you were reading so that you won’t ever have to worry about losing your place
  • You can search with the highlight feature or you can just browse through the chapters and books

Conclusion:

This app has been given a rating of 4 out of 5 stars by iPhone app users (this is based on ease of use of the app, not the content inside….) and you can download it onto your iPhone for only $0.99.

FatBooth iPhone app Review

Description:

Have you ever wondered what you would look like if you just started eating fried chicken an chocolate covered french fries?  Well now you can!  With the FatBooth iPhone app you will be able to get a good idea of what you would look like if you added a few gallons of fat into your neck and face.  This is a funny app that lets you mess with a bunch of different pictures to create some funny images.  You can get pictures from your photo library or just take pictures of your friends and make them fat when you get a few minutes here and there.  This is a fun way to tease your friends when you post a fat picture of them on their Facebook wall.

Features:

  • This app has a few different notable features that you can take advantage of.  First of all, this app will work with any photos that are already on your phone or are located in your photo library
  • You can also use the built in auto cropping technology that is included in the app to be ale to have it detect the face of the person in the picture
  • In order to make the facial transformations you won’t need any kind of internet connection.  All you need is to have already downloaded the app and have a picture uploaded to the app
  • Once you have picked the face and had it autodetected, then all you need to do is just shake the phone so that it will turn the face into a morbidly obese person
  • You can mess with any picture that you want and some will turn out better than others.  Once you find a face that you really like then you can just save it into your gallery on your phone
  • You can also send pictures of your friends and family straight to them through the use of email, or you can post it on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and show them that way

Conclusion:

This is another great app from the developer PiVi & Co.  Similar to the AgingBooth app, this will let you see what you would look like if you added a hundred or so pounds onto your face.  This app will make you laugh as you take multiple pictures and see how people would look if they were really fat.  Obviously, this app only really works with people who are not already obese.  Otherwise you might be pretty disappointed with the results.  This app has been given a rating of 3 1/2 out of 5 stars by people who have tried it out and it currently only costs $0.99 to download.
