caricartoon

I like a clever app with a neat idea, but you know what I like even more? A clever app with a neat idea that actually manages to turn that idea into something decent and worth your time and money. Now, apps like that are a real rarity, but I have uncovered as little gem […]

instaeye

Instaeye, available for Android through the Google Play store, is a great little app that solves a problem for many users of social networks, and Instagram in particular. Instagram has an annoying feature that can’t be switched off, which is the ability to double tap on an image to ‘like’ it. Many people love this […]

es featured

I love a good utility app that can replace many other apps on my phone, making day-to-day operation easier and more condensed. I am very happy to report that, with ES File Explorer, available for Android through the Google Play store, I can now do just about any file and management related task in one, […]

duspeed featured

This is the second time this week that I have gone back and reviewed an Android app that we have previously covered here at The Smartphone App Review, with the other being the sister app to this one, DU Battery Saver. So, over a year after DU Speed Booster scored an impressive 90% in our […]

du featured

One of my colleagues here at The Smartphone App Review, Samantha, reviewed DU Battery Saver for Android back in July 2014 and loved the app. It is fair to say it exceeded her expectations, but here we are nearly a year later, and we thought it was about time we took a second look at […]

rush of heroes android featured

Rush of Heroes is a free to play action RPG, available for Android through the Google Play store. The game is not your typical free to play RPG, as it has something that titles such as these often lack; genuine quality. The game plays really well, uses the touchscreen format in an intelligent way, has […]

earthcore

Earthcore: Shattered Elements, available for iPhone and iPad (version reviewed here) from the Apple iTunes App Store, is a deceptively simple card battling game that is actually pretty deep and offers complex layers of gameplay and strategy. What first appears to be a ‘rock, paper scissors’ game dressed in fancy clothing soon morphs into a […]

newsmeister

Every now and then an app comes along that surprises me, and proves to be far more enjoyable than I was expecting, and Newsmeister is just that: surprisingly enjoyable. I was expecting a bog standard quiz app, but what I actually got is far more interesting than that. In the same way that ‘Have I […]

lightonz

iPhone Version LightonZ is billed as an ‘inspiration recorder’, which may make it sound like one of those many apps that simply have lists of motivational texts to peruse, but this couldn’t be further from the truth, as LightonZ is an app that helps you to be inspired and motivated by text, sound and pictures […]
