DESCRIPTION: Lifestyle, News, Native
..RELEASED: 7/27/09, VERSION: 1.1 -- RATING: 4 Stars..


I've been enjoying the huge selection of news sources and easy readability of Fluent News since I found it. I particularly love that you can save articles for reading later, or even email them to friends without leaving the app (which saves a lot of hassle in my opinion). You get articles from top news sources (Washington Post, New York Times, WSJ, CNN), a full range of sections(world, business, sports, entertainment, tech), constant updates and best of all article sharing with Twitter and Facebook. You will find fast article loading and excellent scrolling through articles. I have been most impressed with this news reader and using it continuously. I'm sure you will also enjoy reading news on your device also.

"Fluent News is the first and only iPhone app to aggregate exclusively made-for-mobile news contents from the most trusted news sources across the web in a single easy-to-read and up-to-the-minute mobile newspaper.

DESCRIPTION: Education, Elementary School, Entertainment, Games, Math, Native
..RELEASED: 7/13/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3 Stars..


Now that school is just around the corner, why not help your Kindergartner to 5th grader get ready by brushing up their basic math skills. You simply click on any level of your choice to see a blackboard with math questions. Compose your answers by clicking different math signs in the green buttons to the right of the blackboard. There are 45 questions, and 15 seconds in which to answer each. If you don't answer within that time frame, you will get an alternate question. Your score is continuously being updated as you answer the questions. I like the simple classroom graphics, especially the one of the child raising his hand. However, sound sound tracks would be nice to round out the app. Kids can learn and play while riding in the car or waiting for doctor's appointments. This is certainly a helpful free app.

"Maths4Kids is an iPhone game designed especially for kids by Dev I Solutions which helps children between 4 - 10 years age to test and improve their IQ Level. It has 3 different starting levels from Easy, Medium and Difficult. Children can start from any level."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: The good thing about this game, is that it is simple enough for your child to play without needing your assistance.

Fire Truck



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle
..RELEASED: 7/23/09, VERSION: 1.2.2 -- RATING: 4-1/2 Stars..


Fire Truck is a great, new idea for a puzzle game, and I especially love the realistic wooden block look. Sure there are many sliding puzzle games, but I find this one somewhat unique. It involves 627 puzzles grouped in 5 difficulty levels. Don't worry about getting stuck or losing your patience, because there is a handy little Hint button that will take you out of your dilemma. After solving your puzzle, save it the scoreboard so you can boast to friends of your skills (whether or not you cheated)! If you don't finish your puzzle, don't worry, it will be saved to be played later. Along with all these puzzles and difficulty levels is also a very cute animated fire being put out when you solve the puzzle. I love the shaded and 3D effects in Fire Truck and the simple, uncluttered design. However, some complementary sound tracks would really add a lot to this soundless app. This game is suitable for all ages and especially for firefighters-to-be!

"Fire, Fire! Flames and smoke are rising from the bottom of the game board. A fire truck is coming to the rescue. Wait, the traffic is jammed around the firetruck. Would you, the player, take the challenge to slide blocked fire truck piece to the bottom center of the game board and put out the fire? The Fire Truck puzzle is a classic variation of a sliding block game that has been played in many countries for over 100 years."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2.1 or later. OS 3.0 Tested. Rated 4+.
--Tip: In this version, there is a new "Restart" function to gameplay. There is also a Free Version available at the App Store.

DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Games, Music, Native
..RELEASED: 7/12/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: N/A Stars..


In my college music class, we would sit and listen to many composers and and musical genres while appreciating the talents of the orchestra.

In Musical Memory you will find more than 80 musical clips, 25 difficulty levels of fun, a pleasing interface, and a score table to track your musical progress! If you do not finish a game, you may always come back and do so later. This game is simple to navigate and is a wonderful addition to your musical game collection!

DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Games, Movies, Native
..RELEASED: 7/8/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3 Stars..


Harry Potter books and movies are always a huge hit, and now iPhone has made an app out of the latest movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This app is a wonderful find for all Harry Potter fans, especially considering it is free. You get to place yourself and friends in a Wanted poster or the Daily Prophet by using either your device's photo album or snapping a new picture. You may save your design and share in the gallery. There are more cool features such as being able to explore film content, unlock new content in the Memory Vial navigation system, interact with the Pensieve's 3D water effects and save posters to use as your wallpaper. I have to admit though the Daily Prophet feature is my favorite. The fun isn't over just because you already saw the movie. Get the app and continue to enjoy Harry's world!

"Explore the world of Harry Potter with this exciting new iPhone app for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. View official film content including videos, posters, character information and more.

Serenade



COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Messaging, Music, Native
..RELEASED: 7/11/09, VERSION: 1.0-- RATING: 3 Stars..


Browsing through new apps last night, I found Serenade and was pleased to see it was exactly what I had been looking for. So many times I'm listening to a song on my iPhone music library, and I wish I could just send it directly with no hassle to my friends, family or Twitter. Serenade makes it easy by offering you a choice of sending the link only, or of the artist/album information with the link. Straightforward, simple, couldn't ask for more. This app features seamless integration, sharing songs via Twitter, e-mail or copy to pasteboard. You may share songs with one tap and write your own message if you want. A link to the iTunes Store will be included. In fact, it is the link that the receiver will get to hear a portion of the song only. Serenade is a great idea for spur of the moment sharing, but I wish the whole song were included in being sent. Give it a try to let loved ones know what songs strike you.

"Serenade is the best way to share songs with your friends that you're listening to on your iPod/iPhone library. Wit a tap, you can send songs you're playing to Twitter, via e-mail to friends or using copy/paste method, place it just about anywhere else."

--Note:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: A great addition to all your Twitter clients. Be aware that not the whole song is sent, only the snippet which is posted on iTunes for preview.

Flight Update



COST: $4.99
DESCRIPTION: Lifestyle, Native, Travel
..RELEASED: 6/2/09, VERSION:3.2 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..


The details and coverage of Flight Update have impressed me tremendously. Travel is such a difficult thing these days, and the more informed and prepared you are, the more peaceful and hassle-free your trip will be. First of all, you should know that Flight Update carries information on over 1,400 airlines worldwide (including all continents), thus making it a must-have and powerful flight application for your device. Simply enter any flight number so you can track that flight. When you enter the airline, travel day and flight number, Flight Update will go to work for you by verifying the flight and filling in the details you need. In this app, there is both a manual and an automatic update button. Tapping this button will update all flights and bring you current with the required details. I used the FIND feature that allowed me to search up a flight based on the departure airport (you can do this too for arrival). This is a must-have feature when friends and family don't supply you with all the information you need prior to arrival in your home town! Additionally, other helpful features are: ongoing flight status, gate and terminal notes, baggage claim, flight cancellations and delays, and flight tracking for US based flights. I particularly like the e-mail feature that will allow you to quickly send off a mail with your flight status if you are trying to alert your friends regarding your pick-up time. I appreciate this app because it lets you input the information you need on a simple, unadorned screen so that you can read without being cluttered with irrelevant information. The options of picking trips by route or airline is wonderful. Flight Update is a must for your travel plans.

"Flight Update uses Flight Stats, the world leader in flight status information. It is the only app that will: add flights months into the future with the airline and flight number, and the app will retrieve all flight details, provide meal information for the flight, and allow viewing of seating charts for the aircraft. Flight Update combines status information with an additional service that allows us to validate and pre-fill each flight, even if it is several months up to a year away."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2 or later. Rated 4+.

NineGaps



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Education, Entertainment, Games, Math, Native, Puzzles
..RELEASED: 5/27/09, VERSION:1.0 -- RATING: 4 Stars..


I used to love those fill-in-the-blank quizzes in school. Somehow, having a couple blanks along with an answer made it easier to figure the problem. NineGaps is taking up where school left off back in June, and also preparing you to get ready for the next semester. Except these puzzles are really fun, and you don't get graded for wrong answers! The game is a bit reminiscent of Sudoku, but still quite different. The features of this game are: puzzle-based gameplay, 3 difficulty levels, unlimited challenging puzzles and lots of fun! The graphics are very simple and resemble school note and graph paper, making it easy to focus entirely on the problems without getting distracted by fancy visuals. The instructions and gameplay symbols are just hand-written which reminds me that sometimes simple is best. You need to fill in the blanks with numbers from 1 to 9, making sure to match the correct operation. Give it the old college-try, and see how many puzzles you can solve.

"NineGaps is a highly-addictive, tricky puzzle-game. The goal of the game is really simple. You have to use your wits to place numbers from 1 to 9 in the missing gaps while matching the operations presented in the puzzle."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2.1 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: This app is great for all ages, and is educational while allowing you to have fun at the same time. A great back-to-school prep.

Comics



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Books, Entertainment, Native
..RELEASED: 6/25/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 4-1/2  Stars..


For all you comic fans, I have to say Comics is the top of the iPhone bunch! This is a complete comics package as it includes the reader, in-app purchase availability and more than 30 free comics. The whole layout of the app is quite impressive. There are excellent interactive instructions on how to read the comics as it can be quite a skill on the iPhone screen. You may pinch or tap your way through each panel of the current comic, and also view it in landscape mode. If you tap through a comic, you will be moving panel by panel which is not the best for getting the whole picture, but makes it easier on the eyes. Otherwise, you can get out of guided mode, and instead pinch and zoom your way through the comic. The free starter comics are great, but knowing you can download comics from many different comic publishers at any time, gives you the ability to always have fun reading at hand. Most paid comic issues run about 99 cents which is very fair, and well worth it. Some of Comic's publishers include AdHouse Books, Arcana Comics, Asylum Press, Image Comics, Com.x and Moonstone. This is definitely a well composed app, and one which you will want to keep on your device so that entertainment is always at hand.

"Comics by Comixology is an iPhone comic store and reader in your hand. Download over 30 free comic books, and shop through over 100 more. For those of you who are buying a lot of comics, please check the Settings/Disk space usage from the Home screen. Choose 'Data Storage Options', increase 'Maximium Space for Titles' and check all your titles to be kept. If any comics are mistakenly deleted, they can be added back free of charge."

I can't think of one person who does not absolutely love a Ferrari, particularly a bright-yellow or fire-engine red one.

BACARDI® Flavors Cocktail Apps



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Lifestyle, Native, Recipes
..RELEASED: 6/10/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..


What better time to relax with a fruity rum drink than during the long, lazy summer holidays? The truth is, you can enjoy a great rum drink anytime if you follow these unusual recipes. Flavors of various Bacardi Rums include Dragonberry, Limon, O, Peach Red, Razz, Grand Melon, Big Apple and Coconut. Add to that several recipes for each flavor, and you've got yourself a whole new bar to tend with lots of friends to visit and sample. The colored recipe pictures are very pretty and refreshing, while the recipe instructions are quite simple and easy to follow. A helpful feature is the GPS allowing you to locate bars or liquor stores where you can purchase the rum. Wanting customers to drink and drive responsibly, Bacardi has ensured that GPS can locate you a taxi in the event you are not able to drive. Be sure to check the Remember Box when you sign in to the app and enter your birthdate so you won't have to re-enter it next time you use the app. The app includes Bacardi Internet Radio which is a 24/7 mix of party music. I think this is a cool touch to finish off the delightful Bacardi package.

"BACARDI® Flavors Cocktail Apps is the definitive resource for BACARDI® Flavors Cocktail recipes. Included in the app are recipes for all 8 BACARDI® flavored rums including the new BACARDI® Flavor Dragonberry Strawberry rum infused with Dragonfruit.

Moonlights



COST: 99 cents
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle
..RELEASED: 6/13/09, VERSION: 1.0.1 -- RATING: 4 Stars..


Moonlights is a wonderful tower-building game, and you're going to love the great music and challenging sequences. You work away at the puzzle, put it down, then pick it back up again because you just know you can build that tower higher! Your goal is to build a structure to reach the moon, and to accomplish this, you must tap the screen. Having the tower remain in the moonlight for three seconds is very challenging, and will require some dexterity on your part. Some features of this unique game include: 42 levels of difficulty, animated tutorials on the 1st level, gravity controlled by flipping the screen, scroll and zoom, local scores and realistic physics. If you are a physics or similar major, you just might love this game, but it is suitable for kids to adults. The simple graphics are a nice change and soothing to the eyes. With this version you have a new icon, 2 more levels, fast deletion and 2-finger scrolling. Build your moonlit tower today!

Triazzle



COST: $2.99
DESCRIPTION: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle
..RELEASED: 8/6/09, VERSION: 3.0.1 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..




If staying up past midnight means I have found my new, favorite game, then so be it. I started to play Triazzle yesterday and got so caught up in it, I could not put it down for more than 5 minutes. First of all, the graphics are so sharp and colorful along with the animations. I love the ambient sounds of the rain forest, and find them very restful. Triazzle is an intriguing game where you fit triangular pieces into the main, large triangle. However, each piece can only fit one way, so you must be careful. Pieces will rotate to fit themselves in place, and animals will animate to let you know if you have pieced them correctly. The puzzle can be played with 9 or 16 pieces. The levels begin with Kids and work up to quite complicated! I started at Level 2, and had to back down to Kids (I know, very embarrassing) because I wanted to really understand the game in entirety. I am back to Level 2 now, and still haven't got it right. Yet, the desire to solve the puzzle persists. If you truly cannot solve, shake the device, you will hear thunder and the pieces will magically re-arrange themselves. Some features include: 9 and 16 piece format, beginner, intermediate and difficult levels, special kids' games for 5+, animated characters when correctly matched, shake to solve, 'Simple Background' option (if you get distracted by the colorful visuals), and auto save for games. I was impressed by the organization of the menu and excellent instructions. It's clear to see this game is extremely well thought out and put-together. What I particularly like is that there is no timed clock to beat, so I can relax and examine the puzzle while enjoying the music. With Version 3.0.1, three issues were fixed: a bug where sometimes a game was saved incorrectly, a crashing bug, and finally new drop shadows were added to the puzzle pieces making them easier to distinguish. Enjoy Triazzle, and experience a unique kind of puzzle.

"Triazzle is the animated, captivating matching puzzle that comes to life. Match the triangular puzzle pieces containing colorful characters in this beautiful pick-up-and-play puzzle game based on the award winning brain teasers. Seven puzzle modes, an endless supply of challenges, stunning artwork and exotic music make Triazzle a delight for the mind as well as the senses. The Matches feature tracks your correct matches and highlights them when tapped. The more you solve, the more Triazzle will wiggle, hop, flap, spin and glow."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2.1 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: When you are in a bind, if you tap the Hint feature, then the puzzle pieces in question, they will re-arrange themselves for you.

iFly Airport Guide is an extremely helpful tool to have handy with you for travel.
