WhatsApp Messenger



COST: 99 cents
CATEGORIES: Communications, Lifestyle, Messaging, Native, Social Networking
..UPDATED: 8/30/10, VERSION: 2.5.10 -- RATING: Stars..


Developer Snapshot: "WhatsApp messenger is a smartphone to smartphone messenger currently available for iPhone, BlackBerry and Nokia phones only. "

If you have an iPhone and you communicate with friends and family who also have iPhones, then you are in good shape. However, if others use Android, some love Blackberry, some must have Nokia (you get my point), then it's hard to find an app that you can share to message each other (without using paid texting from your carrier, of course). WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform messenger that allows iPhone owners to communicate with those who have Blackberry or Nokia phones. It uses push notification to instantly get messages, and has so many useful options. Send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages free of charge. Just a few of the great features of this social networking app are as follows:

- Free Messaging: Chat as much as you want. WhatsApp uses 3G/EDGE or Wi-Fi

- MMS Media: Send Video, Images, and Voice notes to your friends. (iPhone 3GS required to send and save video)

- No International Charges: There is no cost to send WhatsApp messages internationally.

- No Pin Number Necessary: WhatsApp works with your phone number and integrates with your phone address book.

- Offline Messages: WhatsApp will save your messages offline until you retrieve them.

- Status: Use the status feature of WhatsApp to inform your contacts if you are busy, in a meeting, at the gym, or available for a chat.

I can't even describe the convenience of being able to get in touch with friends via messaging. Let's face it, we can't all have the same phones. So it's nice to know we can still communicate and exchange our fun news and media items whenever we want. Just so you know, you can also share location, exchange contacts, use custom wallpaper and custom notification sounds, type in landscape mode, get message time stamps and so much more with this one versatile app. Try WhatsApp Messenger with all its cool extras to keep in touch with the ones you care about the most.

Developer Snapshot: "Simple step-by-step instructions illustrated by pictures for those who need to tie a necktie quickly."

Have you ever wanted to create a decent tie knot for yourself (whether a guy or girl), and came out with it looking like a lump of overstuffed material? You see, knotting a tie is a fine art, but a necessary one. The ladies often wear jaunty ties loosely knotted around their necks, while men's ties are firmly and tightly knotted around their collars. When you are in the office, job hunting or at an evening function, you want to look your very best. Still, to look classy, it must be done right. HowTo Tie a Tie gives you simple instructions, along with illustrations, to get yours (or your sweetheart's) tie looking perfect. There are 12 ways of beautifully knotting your tie in this app. They are as follows:

1. Atlantic
2. Diagonal
3. Four-in-hand
4. Half Windsor
5. Kelvin
6. Oriental
7. Persian
8. Plattsburg
9. Pratt
10. Simple Double
11. St. Andrew
12. Windsor

I've never even heard of many of these fancy tie knots, still I'm up for learning a chic new way to produce one! Simply follow the step-by-step instructions while looking at the images in HowTo Tie a Tie, and you will have a designer knot in no time at all that matches the photo! If you feel like you have all thumbs on your hands, let HowTo Tie a Tie prove you wrong with its simplicity and style.

MyNature Tree Guide



COST: $6.99
CATEGORIES: Education, Encyclopedia, Native, Reference
..UPDATED: 8/27/10, VERSION: 1.1 -- RATING: 4 Stars..





Developer Snapshot: "One of the first comprehensive field guides to Tree identification available with smart-phone technology. You will be able to identify over 190 trees with leaves or needles from Maine to California as well the Canadian Provinces."

Have you been able to get away this summer to go trekking in the woods? It's such a perfect time of year to get the kids involved in healthy exercise by going camping in the mountains, whether bunking in a tent or log cabin in a nice woodsy area. Once that's accomplished, you can set out to explore the flora and fauna of your environment to enjoy nature's bounty. MyNature Tree Guide enables you to get out there in the midst of the beautiful greenery to discover all types of trees and plants to both educate and entertain you. You will walk away from your hiking exploration with a new respect and love of nature. Some of the enlightening features of MyNature Tree Guide are as follows:

- Look through two searchable databases for leaf and needle identification
- Search by question to identify trees
- Search by leaf shape or configuration
- Enjoy illustrated images of leaves and needles
- Find digital images of leaves, needles, fruit, cones, bark and profiles of each tree featured
- Use range maps for tree locations
- Take measurements using a handy ruler to help gauge leaf or fruit sizes
- Test yourself with the State Tree quiz
- Browse diagrams and illustrations of tree structure, leaf structure, leaf shapes and types of leaves
- Write as many notes as you want in the MyNature Journal, where you can personalize your app and record the trees you’ve identified, or jot down your thoughts about your day outdoors
- Be amazed by some cool and interesting tree facts

Upon opening the app, you will be given 4 options from which to choose your desired activity. You could view information about (1) Trees with Leaves, (2) Trees with Needles, (3) View All Species, or take a look at (4) Other Info. Let's take a look first at Trees with Leaves. You will be give sub-options to Search by Leaf Structure, Search by 15 Questions or Display All. Taking a look at the leaf structure will show you Simple and Compound leaves along with excellent written descriptions and illustrations of each. Slide the bar at the top of the screen to view a particular leaf by Illustrations, actual Leaf examples, Fruit, Bark, Profile, Range (location) and a handy Ruler to measure your sample. With such an abundance of information, you could spend hours researching unique trees and plants, and be amazed time and again with the facts you learn!

If you decide instead to research Trees with Needles from the main menu, you will be given similar options to those above in exploring these trees and leaves. If you prefer to View All Species, some incredibly close up and detailed photos are provided. I particularly make use of the Descriptions which are detailed and specific, providing a wealth of information on whatever leaf I hold in my hand. Should you decide to explore Other Info from the main menu, you will be treated to a variety of activities such as MyNature Journal where you can write detailed notes including location, temperature and weather, enjoy a State Tree Quiz, learn tons of incredible Fun Tree Facts, delve a little deeper into the Scientific Names of trees and leaves, learn about how trees grow in Tree Morphology, and view a handy Glossary.

It's really a refreshing change of pace to use my phone for something other than playing games and making calls. Newsflash friends - your iPhone can actually be used for quality reference apps such as MyNature Tree Guide! The wealth of information furnished in this nature app will be a constant source of interest and invaluable knowledge to you and your kids. Summer is drawing to a close, and a whole new season is approaching with Fall. Get outdoors and enjoy all that nature has to offer with the informative and enjoyable MyNature Tree Guide.

Type and Text



COST: 99 cents
CATEGORIES: Communications, Entertainment, Games, Native
..RELEASED: 8/19/10, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 4-1/2 Stars..


Developer Snapshot: "Have hours of fun with the first and only configurable talking bot on the iPhone! This app speaks whatever you type."

Ever wanted to use a fake voice to talk to someone? Maybe freak out a friend with an artifical, robotic voice? You can do this, having a one or two-way conversation with Type and Text. With lots of voice choices to make, you'll be amusing yourself and your friends for quite a while. Create a voice that's high or low pitch, fast or slow, expressive or monotonous. Save whatever chat conversations you make, and amuse your friends with different zany voices! Here are some of the key features of Type and Text:

- Adjust voice characteristics with sliders: pitch, speed and variance
- Speaker animation when voice speaks
- Clear text with the tap of a button
- Save text and voice settings in chatter list
- Tap an entry in chatter list to load voice settings and speak it immediately
- Delete and reorder chatter entries
- Email spoken text as .wav files (please note that .wav files cannot be played natively from the iPhone's Mail app.)
- Switch between keyboard and chatter list
- App remembers your voice settings

You might wonder if it is hard to set up a chatter conversation. Not really. If you follow these few, simple steps, you'll be having a unique 2-way conversation in no time at all.

1) Set voice settings to Person A.
2) Type and add each line that Person A would say.
3) Set voice settings to Person B.
4) Type and add each line that Person B says.
5) Switch to Chatter list and tap the Edit button (pencil icon).
5) Reorder the entries correctly (3 rows icon).

Some of the voices you can try out when you create your chatter are: excited robot servant, effeminate guy and no-nonsense Droid. See how hilarious your words sound being spoken by these characters. To amuse yourself, or if you just don't feel like talking to someone, set up a voice for yourself and type in exactly what you want to be expressed. Type and Text will happily be your voice.

Jumbled




COST: Free
CATEGORIES: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle, Word Game
..RELEASED: 7/20/10, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..




Developer Snapshot: "Jumbled is an addictive, fast-paced, and innovative word game that is great for playing at any time!"

Did you ever play a word association game with your friends that goes something like this..."cat", you say "mouse", "books", you say school? You get the idea! When you're given a word, you come up with a similar one from that family of words. Not only that, but in this game the original word you are given is scrambled, and you must unscramble it in order to find the word associated with it! This is the idea behind Jumbled. And I really love it! It's been a while since I've seen any word association games, much less played them, and this has brought back warm feelings of the past to me. Jumbled is a truly unique, word-matching game that also lets you earn points, gain achievements and add your score to the online OpenFeint leaderboards. Some of the enticing and mind-bending features of Jumbled are as follows:

- 3 difficulty levels for a wide range of players
- Points system - earn points based on how long it took you to correctly match the words
- 5 lives – lose one each time you incorrectly match a word
- Catchy music and sound effects (option to turn them off)
- Optional in-game hints to make gameplay easier
- Online leaderboards for each difficulty level
- 20 achievements to be unlocked using OpenFeint

Jumbled is definitely a challenge that you will not want to put away because it is a two-in one game - scrambled words and word association. The clock is ticking when you play so you really have to think fast, especially when the words start taking on more than 5 letters! Not to worry though as you are given hints along the way. Jumbled has over 100,000,000 possible jumbles from hundreds of words so you know you are going to get in lots of fun playing time with this game. It has already been placed on my home screen, and not in a folder I might add, which is saying a lot about how much and how often I'm enjoying it! Jumbled is the engaging word, puzzle game that has you thinking faster than you can breathe!

Chicktionary by Bing




COST: Free
CATEGORIES: Animals, Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle, Word Game
..RELEASED: 7/3/10, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3 Stars..


Developer Snapshot: "Chicktionary is one of the most popular word games on the Internet and now you can hatch up some fun on your iPhone!"

Word games are one of my favorites, because I really do like stretching my mind, and recovering the vocabulary located somewhere in my brain! Chicktionary is a fun and clucking good word game that the whole family is sure to enjoy. In this game, each hen wears a letter on his tummy. The object of the game is to create as many words as you can which will take on the form of eggs that are then placed in the egg crates. Some of the fun features of Chicktionary are as follows:

- Shake your iPhone to shuffle the chickens and get an idea of new words.
- Play through 300 Levels of word fun.
- Earn Eggchievements for crazy stuff or just playing the game like a pro.
- Enjoy tons of other features such as save game, local and worldwide scoreboards,
hidden Easter eggs, game statistics and more.

When you open your Chicktionary app, you will be greeted with some awesome banjo strummin', finger tappin, country music. You will also be given choices such as Rules, Play and Connect to Facebook. Upon tapping Rules, you will be shown a fancy placard that gives you neat and detailed instructions on the game. Tap Play, and you will be shown another placard with options to: Play Chicktionary, view Stats and High Scores, Challenge a friend, as well as see your excellent Eggchievements! To play the game, you are provided with modes which are Speed Play (a 3-minute game) and Long Play (find as many words as possible in 2 minutes, then play the rest of the game at your leisure).

I played the 3-minute game, as time is always an issue, and was having a huge amount of fun making words, while both hearing and seeing the hens clucking and spasticaly moving around. Not only that, but I had a good laugh upon forming an incorrect word and hearing the hens cluck, "uh-oh!". You can get a Beak Sneak which shows you one letter in each of the unformed egg words (otherwise known as a big hint)! In your frantic rush, you will hear the clock ticking down when you're near the end of your 3-minute time allotment. I thoroughly enjoyed this cute and playful, family iPhone game powered by Bing.
