Glyph



Developer Quote: "Glyph is a beautiful, immersive puzzle game based on the highly acclaimed PC title by Sandlot Games and includes vibrant graphics, and atmospheric music and sound effects."

- COST: $2.99     - RATING: 3-1/2 Stars
- Categories: Arcade, Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle

Glitzy puzzle games can really hold your attention as you seek to uncover the mysteries of the puzzle. Glyph has a story to tell. In this fun game, you must save the dying world of Kuros by reassembling antiquated glyphs hidden beneath layers of rock and sparkling stones. Clear groups of similar colored gemstones to break through the layers of rock and reveal the fantastical glyphs.



You won't have to struggle alone though as powerups will assist you in your quest. Work your way through 5 areas and 125 levels to complete Quest mode, or perhaps you may want to explore the simpler challenge of over 100 levels in Action mode. This mode, however, gets you moving and quickly as it is faster paced. You must touch groups of stones to clear them from the bottom of the screen. Some of the awesome features of Glyph are as follows:
  • Based on the highly acclaimed PC original from Sandlot Games
  • Over 250 levels across 5 different worlds
  • Impressive array of powerful artifacts to aid you
  • Two exciting game modes: Action and Quest
  • Bonus powerups help you clear the stones
  • Stunning visual effects
If you choose, play your own iPod music in the background when you toggle off the game sound effects. Also, if you get interrupted during this challenging iPhone puzzle game, don't worry. Glyph saves everything automatically. Enjoy the mystical and sparkling Glyph, the game that's guaranteed to put your brains to the ultimate test.

Ace Flashcards



Developer Quote: "Ace Flashcards is an incredibly easy to use app for studying just about any subject and it’s especially useful for studying vocabulary words."


- COST: 99 cents     - RATING: 4-1/2 Stars
- Categories: Education, Lists, Native, Productivity
The second semester of school has started. The kids are loaded down with homework and studying for tests. One of the best forms of learning is repetition, and thus the idea of using flashcards. Ace Flashcards are customizable cards that give a big boost in studying for any subject for elementary through college age kids. It has a built-in English dictionary and can look up the definitions of words you enter to save you time and energy! Simply enter the words you want to study and Ace Flashcards will automatically create flashcards with words on one side and definitions on the other. It's actually pretty easy to create and study flashcards for just about any subject, and this definitely beats writing out flashcards one by one on index cards though I admit some teachers will insist on this. Some of the helpful features of Ace Flashcards are as follows:

- Swipe left or swipe right to flip cards and move between cards
- A single tap on a card displays intuitive icons for editing, deleting and more
- Flag individual cards (e.g. those memorized) to put them in a separate stack
- Switch easily between reviewing flagged cards, unflagged cards and all cards
- Share your flashcards with friends via email
- Quizlet.com integration - search and download over 2.5 million flashcard decks
- Built-in English dictionary: no Wi-Fi/Internet connection needed
- Automatically looks up definitions of words you enter and creates flashcards for you
- Easily edit the automatic definitions or enter your own
- In-app tools for customer support and providing feedback
- Fun "shake-to-shuffle" feature

There are certainly a lot of features in Ace Flashcards to help make your assignments go smoother and more time efficient. Having customizable cards is a necessity, but having the auto definition fill-in is also a plus. Another great feature is being able to download even more flashcard decks from Quizlet.com. That makes your choices practically limitless in preparing your flashcard decks. Students need to spend time proportionately on each subject, and by using Ace Flashcards , they will be able to accomplish this and empty the dishwasher for Mom too!

Elections Day in the US is coming upon us very quickly, and will be held next week. In the meantime, many people are voting in advance at early voting stations.

Cruise Card Control



Developer Quote: "Cruise Card Control is an app dedicated to saving you money while on board your cruise ship. Create categories and keep track of how much is spent and Cruise Card Control will do the rest!"



- COST: 99 cents    - RATING: 3 Stars
- Categories: Budget, Lists, Organization, Travel, Native


Have you ever been on a cruise before? There are so many ships sailing to Europe, the Caribbean, Alaska, or you can pretty much name your destination! Anyway, your fare includes accommodations and food, but there's so much more in out-of-pocket expenses and tips, you'll end up coming home having spent quite a packet. Kids get thirsty and want soda, parents like cocktails, and I like to purchase the formal photos and go on shore excursions. It's often far too easy to lose track of how much you are actually spending. I haven't even mentioned the casinos and restaurants yet! That's why when I came upon Cruise Card Control today, I thought it was a great idea to keep current with expenditures amongst other things. With Cruise Card Control you can track and budget your on-board cruise account, so you know the exact total you owe at the end of your trip. Nasty surprises are otherwise imminent! With this app you can also double check your bill for accuracy with its itemized listings. Some of the helpful and cool features of Cruise Card Control are as follows:

• Customizable ship backgrounds with over 35 companies and 230 ships to choose from so your background image will be the same as the ship your on.

• Create up to two Countdown Clocks / Tickers at a time with customizable text and ships to keep track of how much time is left until your next cruise(s).

• Save past trips to compare the total costs of different cruise lines and destinations.

• Cruise Card Control does not require use of your cell network so it allows you to use it wherever you roam.

Much as I love cruises, I hate the day of arrival back in home port. You have to get all packed up again except this time you know the fun is over! Moreover, you can expect to see a large credit card bill slipped under your door (because no-one ever went on a cruise without spending money on extras)! There are several smart features to this app, the first one simply being able to match your vacation ship to an image on the app. The Countdown timer is lots of fun and builds anticipation for big and little kids, and being able to keep all the data without needing network access is a huge plus! I would definitely recommend Cruise Card Control as a useful cruise app as it will make the end of the vacation more pleasing without surprisingly large bills giving you a nasty shock!


--Date/Version: Released 1/1/10 - Version 1.0
--iOS/Age Rating:  This app requires iOS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip/Tutorials: Also, on the App Store see Cruise Card Control Lite (free) which features a customizable countdown clock, text and over 70 ships.

reMovem Christmas Edition



Developer Quote: "This is a special holiday version of the popular reMovem game. It features snowmen, reindeer, christmas trees, stockings, and more. Hours of fun for all ages."



- COST: Free     - RATING: 3 Stars
- Categories: Arcade, Entertainment, Games, Holidays, Native, Puzzle


We're still looking at Halloween games, books, puzzles and entertainment in general. Yet now I see Christmas apps are starting to trickle into the App Store. Even more colorful games and apps of all sorts are within tantalizing reach! reMovem has always been one of my favorite games, and is now available in reMovem Christmas Edition. This is a simple enough game for the whole family to enjoy together and is filled with holiday images, music (on starting a new game) and sound effects. Basically, you play reMovem by tapping to select blocks of two or more balls of the same color. Tap once more to remove them. If you want to get higher scores, just remove even bigger blocks of balls. You should play until you can't remove any more balls! At that point, you will unlock secret rewards and bonus points. Some of the features of this fun, arcade game are as follows:

• Fast tap action
• Fun holiday sounds (can be turned off)
• Choice of 4, 5, or 6 festive ball colors
• Undo (can be turned off)
• Large preview of selected block's points
• Bonus for removing all balls from the board
• Local and global high scores
• Unlock secret awards
• Global high scores (requires Game Center)
• Unlock secret achievements (requires Game Center)

First of all, reMovem Christmas Edition supports Game Center so I was already logged in when I started the game. You can change various settings by tapping the gear wheel in the lower left corner of your display. I changed the game to show 6 colors which was more challenging, and I opted to leave the sound toggled on. Enjoy this relaxing game that all ages will appreciate without taxing your brain too much. Think Holidays with reMovem Christmas Edition!
