Sushidoku Sudoku with a twist by The Redington Group promises a deliciously fresh challenge for sudoku fans and sushi lovers alike. Here is the app’s full description from the App Store:

Solve visually beautiful sudokus with scrumptious pieces of sushi. Fun for beginners and experts alike. Jigsaw and regular sudokus in sizes from 6×6 to 9×9, with more than 600 different shapes. Difficulty levels from easy to hard. Over 4,000 unique and original puzzles to choose from. CAUTION! You may experience feelings of hunger while playing Sushidoku.

Sushidoku is a new, unique way to play the classic game with none other than pieces of sushi. Rather than numbers, visually appealing sushi pieces ranging from rolls to sashimi are used to fill the puzzle pieces. Not only must the spaces be filled where vertical and horizontal pieces cannot cross paths, but the marked areas must also not contain the same sushi more than once. This creates a challenge real puzzle junkies will love.

Puzzles start with easy 5×5 dimensions and go up to medium and hard 9×9 layouts to accommodate any player level. The Sample pack includes 15 puzzles and comes free with the app. Each additional puzzle pack can be purchased for $0.99 with each pack including 50 more puzzles. There is over 4,000 unique and original puzzles to choose from, keeping the challenge going for as long as you want.

What I love about Sushidoku is the visuals. The challenge of the puzzle keeps your mind working while the beautiful sushi rolls treat your eyes, though they may taunt your stomach. With more than 600 different shapes there is never a repetitive pattern. There are plenty of puzzles to keep you busy and many more that can be purchased as you solve each new layout. Other add-ons are also available like additional scenes, a sushi randomizer, or buy easy, medium and hard puzzle packs in bulk which includes 800 puzzles instead of 50.

These games are definitely crafted for sudoku users as there is no tutorial. You can find an About section with a How to Play explanation in the menu, but it is pretty lengthy and maybe confusing for beginners. If there was one thing I would like to see in the app it would be the addition of music. The app is completely silent. There is an option to turn on sound effects, though even when mine was toggled on, I heard no sounds while playing.

Overall, Sushidoku is a tasty fun puzzler enjoyable for all those that love a good challenge. The app is available in the App Store for free.

Gorilla Workout: Body Beast app by Heckr LLC wants to help you get your body into the best shape using only your body weight and an iPhone. Here is some of the app’s features from the App Store:

FEATURES
40+ bodyweight exercises targeting every area of the body (burpees, push ups, squats, lunges, and more!)
Intuitive day-by-day workout regimes, with 100s of unique routines
4 fitness levels
Cross training to maximize cardio and strength
Video demonstrations and descriptions of each exercise, including explanations of the targeted muscle group(s) and form
Full-body workouts targeting upper body, lower body, and core, while building endurance
Social sharing: Progress and workout summaries to share on Facebook and Twitter
Compatibility with iTouch, iWatch, iPad, and iPhone – Use the app across all of your devices with a single purchase
Availability on and offline, so a great workout is never blocked by cell reception

The Gorilla Workout: Body Beast app is an easy to use mobile workout schedule to help anyone on any fitness level. Upon opening, an introduction explains the focus of the app. There is no equipment necessary. The goal is to give you a short, everyday workout, keeping your heart rate up and teaching you proper techniques for a variety of exercises. This is done through video tutorials and in-depth description so users can easily follow along.

To start, click the Get Started button. Select the fitness level you would like to begin ranging from 1 for the easiest to 4 being the most difficult. The levels are measured by the amount of push-ups you can do with Level 1 being 0-10 push-ups and Level 4 being 75 and up. The workout is then structured for that fitness level, which can be changed anytime in case you find it too challenging or too easy. After choosing level one, I was assigned 20 different workouts, one per day. It included instruction for each move with an assignment of amount to be performed and number of rounds. A timer is included to keep track of how long your workout lasts and there are built-in progress trackers to easily monitor your journey.

What I like about the app is the thorough instruction of each move. Not only does it show you how to do it, but includes information about the muscles that will be worked. The demos are YouTube videos but they play in app so there is no leaving and coming back. A reminder can be set to keep you motivated and on schedule for the next day’s workout, and is also available for Apple Watch. Gorilla Workout does leave it mostly up to you to do the work. The instructions are great, but I would love a video to follow along to for my workout. Of course, everyone’s style is different. The app itself only includes the basic workouts but also offers additional individual sets that can be purchased. These include different category divisions like time trials, interval challenge, and cardio builder just to name a few. Their best value comes with all of the signature workouts for only one $9.99 in-app purchase.

Gorilla Workout: Body Beast is a handy app for anyone looking or some easy to use workout instruction on the go. The app is available now for $0.99 in the App Store and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

Call Predictor, from developer Qware and available for Android phones and tablets from the Google Play store, is a clever and interesting app that claims to be able to predict what calls you are likely to receive on any given day.

The app dos this by analysing the call history on your phone for the last 30 days, looking for patterns from differing incoming numbers. It then sends you alerts, letting you know who is likely to call you that day.

Once it has done the magic, you can even view a chart with percentages of who is most likely to call you. There is a big caveat here, as to get the most out of the app you do need to be someone who gets a lot of phone calls each month, as you need to have received at least 30 in the last month, so this will only be truly useful for power users who need help organising calls.

The app takes a little while to analyse your calls, and you can’t close it while it does its job, so be prepared to put aside a few minutes to help the app do its thing. The algorithm here is obviously very clever, and many users will have a play with this simply for the fun aspect of seeing if the app will predict calls correctly, but that really isn’t the main point of the app.

Call predictor exists to help those who receive many calls each day with planning their day, and to remind them to be prepared to talk to certain people. It is perhaps a disappointment that the app doesn’t connect with the calendar or to do lists on Android to integrate the likely calls in with the plans for each day. Hopefully this is something that is planned for the future.

Here is the app’s full description from the Google Play store:

This app learns patterns from your call history using Machine Learning.
It can then use that intuition to predict who will call you the next day.

*Please allow 10-15 min for call analysis to complete.

*This app requires at least 30 days of call history data with minimum of 30 phone calls.

*Get notified on who is likely to call you the next day.

*Does NOT require Wifi/Data or any form of internet access to work.

The app has a very basic look, with few visual bells and whistles, and aside from the call analysing and results there are few options available. This does mean that the interface is very streamlined and is easy to use, which is a decent enough trade off for functionality.

Overall, this is a good idea for an app that will be a great help for power phone users that want a little help with call management. The algorithm and prediction seem to work really well, and although I would have liked more integration with other functions of the phone, such as the calendar, the app does work as intended and is worth a purchase for those looking for an app that does something a little different with call management.

The app is available now for $1.49 in the Google Play store.

7 Best Free Android Games of 2018 http://thesmartphoneappreview.com/android/7-best-free-android-games-2018/ http://thesmartphoneappreview.com/android/7-best-free-android-games-2018/#comments Tue, 30 Jan 2018 02:54:15 +0000 http://thesmartphoneappreview.com/?p=25911 The Smartphone App Review - The Smartphone App Review - High Quality App Reviews for Smartphones and Tablets

There’s much to expect from 2018 as a gamer.

While we are impatiently waiting for Alto’s Odyssey and The Room: Old Sins, to name just a couple of upcoming Android releases, there’s a fresh supply of new and popular games on Play Store that can’t be missed.

We’ve done all the hard job for you and picked top 7 free Android games.

How we did it:

We considered only new games released between fall 2017-to date and judged the graphics, average global user rating since release, awards, number of installs, and how much we liked it.

We see that old genres still dominate and loved by gamers globally.

It seems new technologies like AR/VR, and recently crypto games, though hot, need some more work to win the gamers’ hearts (for example, CryptoKitties got only 2.0 user rating on Play Store). Only one such game made it into our top 7.

So here’s our top 7:

1. Run Sausage Run!
Arcade, 2017, 4.6

This hilarious game will make smile just about anyone. You will be a sausage running around for your life trying not to get sliced, chopped, burned or smashed and cooked for dinner. A witty gameplay and colorful graphics won this game a 4.6 rating from 54,395 players and 5-10 million installs.

2. Stickman Warriors Zombie Fnaf
Simulation, 2018, 4.2

A fresh 2018 release. An ultimate survival game in which you play as Stickman and fight deadly battles with enemies. “In order to win and survive, you will have to fight to the last drop of your blood… If you skip a beat, you are dead” – don’t tell the makes of the game didn’t warn you.

3. Balls Race
Arcade, 2018, 4.0

Another interesting 2018 release. The game is quite addictive and challenging, and a great time-killer. Who would think rolling balls as fast as you can trying to avoid different obstacles could be so much fun? On the downside, it requires a good phone, as the gameplay will be leggy on a slower device.

4. Toy Crush
Puzzle, 2017, 4.5

Toy Crush may be the best puzzle matching game on the Play Store. In this game, your job is to keep matching 2 or more adjacent cubes of the same color to complete missions and clear the multitude of levels – more than 800, in fact. Unlock awesome rewards and boosters. The great thing we found about this puzzle – it’s lightweight, so it won’t be heavy on your Android’s resources. It’s fast-loading and levels are transitioning smoothly – all in all, this online board game is made for pure enjoyment. Playtime is virtually endless because there’s no lives to lose. It’s challenging and totally addictive, as the best of this genre are.

5. Stickman Parkour Platform
Action, 2017, 4.3

A modern take on a platformer with parkour mechanics and action. If you haven’t had a chance to practice this blend of stunts around obstacles and urban running in real life, this is your chance to try it and become a parkour authority in your neighborhood. Although, it’s a really handy game to pass the time when you are bored, it won’t keep you busy for long.

6. Dunk Shot
Basketball, 2017, 4.5

This is a sports arcade game with plenty of challenges and unlockable content. Shoot the hoops, unlock new balls, and become the next basketball star. Note that you won’t be able to skip ads. And we must say the gameplay is a little repetitive, as there isn’t much variety. Completing everything does take a while, so it will give you hours of decent gameplay.

7. Stack It AR
AR, 2017, 4.0

A nifty AR game in which you try to stack up as many virtual blocks as you can to reach higher scores and beat your friends. You will enjoy the game’s graphics and music, but mind you – it will also be heavy on your phone’s resources. One other downside: There is no way to pay to remove ads. However, the makers might add this feature in future updates. Requires at least a 3 Mpx rear camera and you need to be in ample light.

With the new year here and a whole year of mobile app development work lying ahead of you, it’s time to start thinking about maximizing your work-time efficiency and effectiveness. To do that, getting familiar with and connected to the best mobile app dev tools is essential.

Here are six key tools to consider using going throughout 2018 and beyond, that will boost your productivity and make your job that much easier:

1.   Get the latest version of Retrace

Retrace is a classic tool for all manner of Web-based HTTP service monitoring, and it’s no less a high-performance tool for mobile apps than it is for non-mobile ones. Performance testing is essential if you want to ensure a prime customer experience from the get-go and not risk sinking your perfectly good app into oblivion due to a poor first impression on users. Click here to learn how to monitor Web service performance using Retrace and how its latest incarnation is superior to all the forerunners!

2.   Start using Xamarin for native applications

For native apps, Xamarin’s ability to reuse logic-layers and to quickly access data cross-platform makes it the ideal choice for programmers. It can handle large quantities of local data, offline programming mode, and image-recognition with ease. And being based on C-sharp and running on dot-NET, it’s perfect for iOS, Android, and Windows apps alike.

3.   Use PhoneGap for cross platform apps

PhoneGap is a great fit when you’re working on cross-platform mobile apps. It lets you create only one app and yet allows that one app to work well on every type of mobile device. It can use a number of different code-types, including JavaScript. And you can gradually improve your app with ease by adding new functions via PhoneGap’s plugin architecture.

4.   Speed things up with the “Appcelerator”

One key tool to speed up mobile app dev efforts is known as “Appcelerator.” Appcelerator lets you construct your new applications using fewer lines of code, which certainly saves you time and effort. It works well with both native and cross-platform apps and with iOS, Windows, and Android. It lets you write once, then run everywhere. And its coding is platform-targeted, which gives you a smoother run on any compatible platform.

5.   Get in touch with Sencha Touch

Sencha Touch is your MVC based JavaScript mobile application tool of choice. Its star feature is that you can program with it by touch instead of key clicks or mouse movements. It’s compatible with almost everything, and end users love it because it renders your app extremely responsive and easy to navigate from a smartphone.

6.   Use Ionic to make hybrid apps

Finally, another tool that should be in your mobile app development tool box is Ionic if, that is, you plan on making any hybrid mobile apps. Ionic is open source and easy to use for anyone with basic programming knowledge. It helps you build extremely interactive mobile applications with relative ease.

Fly through space and destroy the monsters to reach the highest score possible in Spree Pop by Chee Ket Yung. Here is the app’s full description from the App Store:

Fire as many colored sprees (the red-eyed monsters) as you can! Aim the sprees that carry tank and grab them to upgrade your power or speed of firing. A challenging game! How far can you go? Have fun!!

– support iPhone X & iOS 11
– addictive, fun & challenging!
– fire the colored sprees, aim those with lowest health numbers, enjoy the fun of watching them changing colors and explode like party poppers or firework in the night sky
– exciting game sound effects

Spree Pop is a basic space shooting game where the player navigates a self flying ship that is constantly shooting ammunition towards obstacles in the flight path. These obstacles are rounded squares and circles with eyes, called the red-eyed monsters, that you must avoid and shoot to eliminate from your path. Each monster has a number, indicating the amount of times it must be shot to be killed. Some have ammunition upgrades that can be collected as you fly by after clearing. These upgrades sometimes add speed to the projectiles or even a spray pattern to reach multiple enemies simultaneously.

The app is very simple with basic shape designs for the enemies, spaceship, and bullets. That being said, the colors are bright and eye-catching, and the sound effects give it a very retro feel. The rules are easy to learn but difficult to master. The control of the ship itself is only a slide of the finger back and forth along the screen. The shooting is and flying is done for you, so all you are in charge of is the aiming. There is a bit more skill involved as you must choose your path carefully and shoot for those lower numbers to ensure you will continue on and not crash to your death.

Reminiscent of Space Invaders, Spree Pop keeps you coming back for more to better that high score. It is ad-supported with small banners that appear at the bottom of the screen, though these can be removed for an in-app purchase of $1.99. It is also already formatted for the new iPhone X, which I very much appreciate. The app is available now on the App Store for free.

– Share your photos with amazing and cool animations…

Unlike other apps which feature computer generated animation, in MAYU each animated typeface is an handmade design, crafted by one of our motion-artist designers. Every frame and sticker are part of our designer’s artistic style and vision.

The MAYU Animated Text and Effects iPhone app brings users an easy way to create their own festive and custom photo messages. Upon opening the app, users are greeted with a ready-made image to play with. Currently, holiday and Christmas images with text appear. To begin editing a photo of your own, tap the plus sign in the middle of the top tool bar to select one from your device’s library. Or, select the camera icon in the top left and take a photo right in the app. Once you have an image picked out, you can add filters, text, and/or one of 200 stickers. Text can also be animated with one of more than 20 styles.

There are plenty of image editors out there that can do most of these things, but what makes MAYU really unique is the animations. There are more than 90 animations that can be added to customize a photo. They range from artistic transition type reveals, to drawn landscapes on top of the images itself. Filters, stickers, and animations are easily added and removed, though there isn’t a tutorial so it takes a bit of experimentation to figure things out. Once learned though, there is plenty for the artist to play around with.

Though this app is a bit more in price than some other editors, it is mentioned that each animated typeface is handmade, and it shows. MAYU is definitely one of the more artistic apps out there sure to make any image pop and original. Once the masterpiece is complete, share it to your favorite social media or messenger. I really like how there are options to save it as a gif or a video format as well, making it easy to export to any format.

Customize all of your memorable moments with the special touch of MAYU Animated Text and Effects. The app is available now in the App Store for $2.99 and is compatible with iPhone and iPad.

When I was younger, I was always looking for diaries that had locks on them. I just couldn’t seem to keep my thoughts hidden from my sister otherwise. Even when I did keep my diary under lock and key, I was still worried someone was going to read my private thoughts – and no way was I gonna let them know about all of my secret crushes! If only the Edge Diary app had been invented back then. Since all of my tech is now locked with thumbprint protection, I can be sure no one will access my diary without my permission!

The Edge Diary app (available for free on iOS) basically revolutionizes the diary-keeping game. Instead of lugging around a notebook and pen, you can simply take out your iPhone or iPad, and start typing out your thoughts immediately. The app is neatly arranged with all of your entries, and you have the option of viewing all of your daily posts at once or looking back in the calendar setting to see your past entries from a while back. It’s cool if you don’t have time to write an entry every day too – you can feel free to just note down your thoughts anytime, and the Edge Diary app will save it for you.

I would have loved to add photos to my diary when I was younger, but I would have been even more embarrassed for people to come across those. I did some pretty dorky stuff back in the day! But, with the Edge Diary app, you can add pics super easily. You can select a pic from your saved albums or take a picture directly from the app. That way, the pics you add to your posts will create an added artistic, visual effect to your diary. The best part? Edge Diary keeps these pics safe from prying eyes since your devices are password protected.

The only downside to the app is the ads that run while you’re using it. This can be a tad distracting if you’re trying to craft the perfect diary entry uninterrupted. However, the ads usually run just at the bottom of the screen, so they don’t take up much of the page. And, if the ads are too much for you to handle, Edge Diary offers the chance to remove the ads by paying a small one-time fee.

If you’re looking to start-up a diary but want to make sure your thoughts will stay private, Edge Diary is the perfect option! Your posts will stay password protected, so you can journal to your heart’s content. And, since it’s free on the App Store, you can’t really ask for a better way to keep a diary!
