One of the first things you check out when buying a new car is the front dash. How sleek and hot looking is that dashboard holding all your controls? Part of that is the in-board radio system. What do you prefer - knobs or push buttons, chrome or black? You can play with the the look of your iPhone or iPod Touch using Car Audio Deck.

Draw Something Free



Developer Quote: "Play the Free version of Draw Something, the most popular social drawing and guessing game in the App Store!"
- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS:  5
- Categories: Art, Entertainment, Games, Native, Universal

The other day, a friend invited me to play Draw Something Free, in addition to our regular ongoing word games. Now, not being an artist at all, I was somewhat hesitant. I mean what poor soul would stand a chance of winning anything if they had to guess what I was drawing with jerky little lines that resemble nothing in particular? Since then, I have been playing under my desk, in the pool, in the park - well, you get the idea! Draw Something Free has become a bit of an addiction for me! It is entertainment in its finest, using raw talent (or lack thereof) as the basis for its humor and popularity. Some of the insanely fun features of this iPhone drawing and guessing game app are as follows:

- Play with Friends on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch:
Challenge friends on Facebook or via e-mail or be randomly partnered with gaming buddies.

- No Drawing Skills Required:
Just wiggle you finger to create a doodle masterpiece!

- Color Craze - Over 50 Vibrant Colors:
Color packs must be separately purchased. A handful of colors are included with app.

- Turn-based Gameplay:
Take turns drawing and guessing at your own pace. No rush, no timer.

- Leaderboard:
Play back and forth with friends for the most “Turns.”

- Bombs:
Get rid of letters in the grid that are not part of the word to be guessed.

- Push Notifications:
Be alerted when it’s your turn to draw or guess.
Basically, you can sign in via Facebook or email. Get to know your friends' user names and invite them to create a drawing with you. You are given 3 words from which to choose one to draw. If the words look pretty impossible to draw, you can get a fresh pick. Choose one and start your artwork! Pick from varying pen sizes and a few different colors. You may purchase more colors if you wish. Redo your drawing countless times until you get it right. Once your creation is done, it will be sent to your friend who will attempt to guess what it is.

Most likely your friend will have a good laugh at your expense, if you draw anything like me! Once your buddy guesses what your drawing represents, he or she then produces their own drawing which comes back to you to uncover its secret! There is a word grid on your display with jumbled letters, some of which spell out the word of the drawing. This, of course, is to help you guess that unfathomable bit of artwork. If you guess correctly, you get points which may be used to later purchase more color packs or word bombs to help unscramble future drawings.

One thing I'd love to see incorporated, however, is a chat function so you can tease your friend on just what you thought of his "effort" to make a "fine" drawing! It would also be great if you could include more than one person at a time in each game. Online help is available in the app, though you probably may never need to use it! Lots of fun and great bonding with friends and family is what you can expect with the uniquely creativeDraw Something Free.

COOL CONCLUSION: Hone your drawing skills with Draw Something Free, the app that tests your ability to translate a written word to artwork on paper - a humorous and challenging time-passer for everyone!

Hunger Games - Girl on Fire



Developer Quote: "From the award-winning creators of indie game sensation Cannabalt comes the *official* FREE teaser game for the movie event of the year — The Hunger Games!"


- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, Movies, Native, Universal

How many of you went to see the new Hunger Games movie this weekend? Well, this much awaited film drew in millions with its action packed adventure theme. Of course, to keep the excitement going, Lionsgate has created the Hunger Games - Girl on Fire universal iOS app. You will take on the role of none other than Katniss Everdeen, the remarkable heroine who is clever, quick and an amazing shot using her bow and arrow.

The story behind this action packed game is that Katniss dares to go out of her allowed area of District 12 on a food-finding mission. There is never a dull moment, as she runs into a formidable team of Tracker Jacker wasps sent by the cunning Capitol team. Get Katniss home safely using your deadly bow and arrow to to drop the nasty wasps. Obstacles galore on your travels are an expected event, but with patience and skill, you will complete your mission! Some features of this popular action movie game for iPhone and iPad are as follows:

o Guide Katniss's escape with simple touch controls:
- TAP on Tracker Jackers to shoot them down
- SWIPE UP to leap up into the tree tops and avoid enemy fire
- SWIPE DOWN to leap back down to the ground

o Compete for high scores against friends on GameCenter!

Hunger Games - Girl on Fire has many intriguing components to it. First of all, you will find the visuals of a slightly retro style. Though you will face challenges, the controls are easy to maneuver - just tap a target who will be felled using your bow and arrow. It's pretty neat to see Katniss running as the game becomes more engaged with activity. As a special bonus, you can take time out of your game to see additional menu features such as movie trailer, order tickets to the theater and grab a sneak peek of The Hunger Games: Adventures which is an imminent Facebook game.
If you've not seen the movie, nor the previews the last time you went to the theater, here's a bit from the developer on the story of the Hunger Games.
"Every year, the evil Capitol of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. As part of a government intimidation tactic, The Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts if she’s ever to return home to District 12."

COOL CONCLUSION: Hunger Games - Girl on Fire is an exciting representation of the adventures of the movie, and is also balanced with easily manageable controls, cool graphics and sounds to challenge your mind and reflexes.

Lingo of the Day: over-Mac'd - The notion of simplifying a product too much, so that its ease-of-use actually reduces its perceived value and leads consumers to view it as a toy. For example, "Don't over-Mac the intro on the CD-ROM. We want users to feel like they're involved in getting the game going."

I selected the movie, "Lymelife", to watch on my iPad. There is an ad to watch before the movie begins, but that was no problem to me. (After all, I was able to choose from some awesome free movies). I used the iPad in orientation mode to enlarge the screen because the view does not completely cover the device's display, and I wanted it as large as possible. However, the quality of the movie was flawless, the sound was crystal clear and I did not come across any glitches during its play.


The movie is being streamed as you watch so you can't download it to your device, but the beauty is that you can watch both over 3G and WiFi. Use the scrubber bar at the top of your screen to move the action further along or rewind as you please. Under Genre, find movies such as Action/Thrillers, Comedy, Horror, Drama, Romance, Family/Kids, Urban, Bollywood and more. Use the Search bar to enter the name of a film you'd prefer to see. If you want to add movies to your queue, go ahead and do so then select to either Watch Now or have it stored in your queue. Movies 24/7 at your disposal? I'd say it's definitely worth having on all your devices, especially on trips where you can utilize the 3G for your kids!

The unique features we appreciate -
Once you make your scan, there are so many options available such as: Exposure, Black & White, Auto Fix, and Crop. Auto Fix does a nice job of brightening and making your scan clearer. I like the black and white slider which takes away the greyscale or color and makes the page look more professional if it is a document. Editing has never been easier with a plethora of choices. Your words can be easily changed in size by using the Font Size slider - no need guessing or picking a size. Also, change the text color if you choose.

Create diagrams on your worksheet or sign PDF docs using the writing tool, set up your work in a neat outline, and even add notes to yourself where necessary. Zoom in and out to attend to the smallest details. Make helpful changes to your scan such as adding directional arrows, using flexible touch and drag boxes or circles to outline text and images. Change the color of these by using the color picker. Lastly, simply scroll through each page in your folder, or use the vertical slider, because each document can be composed of more than one page. PDF Reader Pro is sleek, feature rich, and a completely versatile professional tool for both business and personal use.


COOL CONCLUSION: "PDF Reader Pro is the ultimate sophisticated tool when it comes to creating, reading and sharing PDF files with style and simplicity."

Pocket Scanner - Documents on the go



Developer Quote: "Pocket Scanner-Documents on the go gives you the flexibility to make quick scans and share whatever you capture with others."
- COST: $1.99    - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Business, Communications, Lifestyle, Native, Organization, Productivity, PDF Tool, Utilities



The ability to scan documents using your iPhone is really a break-through productivity feature that will save time and mailing costs in preparing and sending out necessary information to business associates. Pocket Scanner-Documents on the go is a wonderful utility that produces stunning quality PDF files by scanning a large assortment of documents, modifying them as needed, organizing them, then exporting these items in PDF format in order to share them. You can also view documents in a wide range of formats which simplifies your life even further!

Some of you may have scanners in your office. But think of the many times you need a portable scanner with you - right here and right NOW! Pocket Scanner performs many jobs instead of just simply creating a photo of paperwork. It has an extraordinary native PDF Reader engine which allows it to digitalize, manage and share your documents. Below are some of the excellent and useful features of this PDF scanner app for iPhone and iPad:

1. Scan -
Quickly scan a variety of items such as business cards, whiteboards, newspaper articles, recipes, restaurant menus, class handouts, or lecture slides. Additionally, images can be imported from your photo library.

2. Modify -
Take advantage of the built-in image processor to optimize the quality of your scan by cropping, rotating, and adjusting its exposure, B&W option, and edge detection.

3. Organize -
Arrange and sort scanned images and documents into multiple folders and customizable scanner projects. Enjoy an easy-to-use interface for you to copy, paste, cut, delete, and rename files.

4. Export and Open as PDF Document -
Scans saved within the same scanner project can be shared and exported as a single PDF document. With the powerful PDF reader engine, easily open large and password protected PDF files, add bookmarks or use text search to quickly navigate to the right page.

5. Share -
Conveniently transfer your scans via e-mail, WiFi, USB connection, and various cloud storage services.

Features that I found to be most productive:
Many superb options included multiple documents in one scan (also known as continuous scanning), realistic quality of scanned images, text search, awesome image filters, and project settings to produce an official presentation including title, layout, margin, page number etc. These are invaluable, time and money saving features that can serve you well in both a personal and professional capacity.

Open your app to 4 major options of: Scanner, Docs, Settings and Help. Why not view Help first to get a feel for the app even though the interface is quite intuitive to navigate? Here you will find helpful information on: What is New in the current version, Scanner Features, Viewing Files, File Management and Transferring Files among other options.

Now you're ready to begin. Tap Scanner and then Add to either Scan, Preview, Make PDF, Clean (Delete) or access Settings. I scanned a restaurant menu which was placed under the PDF Documents tab. I then used features such as Crop, AF (Auto Fix), Adjust (flipping/rotating) to make my scan perfect. Choose from many Filters including Gray Scale, Exposure, Contrast, Blur, Edge Detection and Gamma Correct. Some cool things you can also do with your PDF doc is to utilize Text Reflow (makes reading so easy), Text Search, Air Print (so handy), Lock Rotation and Email.


By tapping your Docs button, you may choose to share your information by WifFi, use Browser or iCloud services (Box.net, iDisk, Dropbox, GoogleDocs or FTP), Download or add a new folder to start organizing your documents.

Don't forget there are tons of useful Settings such as Show Private Folder, Viewer Mode, Air Play, WiFi password protection, etc. which will provide full utilization of all the content Pocket Scanner has to provide!

Pocket Scanner is loaded with useful and neat features at an affordable price that makes it so easy to create and share PDF documents with just a few taps.

COOL CONCLUSION: Pocket Scanner - Documents on the go allows you to organize and make excellent digital PDF documents of items you need to share with business or personal acquaintances, saving money and time without losing the quality of original documents."
