multitimer

I always like apps that can replace some of the standard functionality of the iPhone with a more interesting and feature packed offering, but this is always tempered by the need for these apps to be as easy to use as the built-in iOS software. Luckily, MultiTimer, available for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch through […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Apple iPhone and other smartphone platforms have brought many great things to the technological table, not least of which is the ability to enjoy older content in new and interesting ways. Scourby YouBible, available for iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes App Store, is the perfect example of this. This app is designed […]

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 […]

epicbugwaripad

Epic Bug War, available for iPad through the Apple iTunes App Store, is an interesting mix of action and strategy which, while not quite getting the balance perfectly right, is a decent game with a unique feel and plenty to like. The game uses a classic isometric viewpoint to display the action, which is always […]

Sync.ME is easily the very best caller ID app available for Android, or any other format for that matter. Completely comprehensive and remarkably easy to use, Sync.ME is an absolute must have if you want to have any control about who calls you. Yes, there are other apps like this, but very few of them […]
