Hey everybody! How are you doing today? Back with my 30th application review which is going to be my top five apps for reviews number 21 to 29. So, let’s get this started with a free app from the app store called Twitterrific.
Now, if you don’t know what Twitterrific is it is a Twitter client which is an internet website and what Twitter is basically is being able to update your status and see other people’s updates, you can follow others and you can pretty much just—pretty much notify the world on what you’re up to, what you’re doing, and you can follow each other and see what everyone’s status is and what they’re up to. Very simple application, very simple concept, it’s a great one. It is free so I would definitely recommend it if you do have Twitter or if you don’t you can always check right above the notification or in the more info.
You can follow me and see what I’m constantly up to. You don’t have to have an account. You can just check out what I’m doing, what my new videos will be, when I’m going live. You guys be able to pretty much just follow me whenever I update my status so Twitterrific has everything on here that you need for Twitter. It’s got the Refresh button so you can always see what’s up and what people are doing immediately when it happens. You can click this little air bubble down here and you can have pretty much just type in whatever you want to and that will update your status. If we could close, you can go down here and you can see full list of people. This is people’s responses to you and stuff like that and you can also click tools so you can set it up the way that you want it to be. There’s my log in, there is your password, it’s got everything so you can turn everything on and off sounds, all the stuff that you really need to see.
It’s pretty much the best Twitter clock that I’ve seen so far in the app store and to top it all, it’s free. So, I definitely recommend that to anybody that has Twitter or the ones just follow someone else on Twitter and follow me. And my fourth favorite application is going to be called Crazy tanks. This is a 99 application download from the app store and it’s definitely worth a buck, I would definitely say so. It is a one player tank fighting game, it’s got a little cartoony toy looking to it so you got three different difficulty and easy and very simple application that utilizes the accelerometer really nicely. And then pretty much the only other thing that you have to do is just have to screen or shoot.
So, we’re going around depending on how much we tilt forward and back, determines the speed, so we’re just turning around trying to fight this last, actually it’s only one right out of me who I just completely run in to because I cannot see because I have just a terrible glare so we face him and we shoot him, we’re going to take him out and he’s gone. He’s dead. So, that’s what we need to do and now you go to the next level. Very simple application.
Over here, it shows your lives. Up in the right top corner, it shows how many enemies you have remaining. This green button on the left shows your health which mine is deploying so I need to run away. And down at my bottom corner shows a little radar so you can always see where health is or you can see where other enemies are in the map to go up in just beat living crop bottom with missiles. So, that’s pretty much the entire application, a very simple application, very fun though. It’s got very easy game plan. It’s definitely worth the buck; it’s called Crazy Tanks in 99 application download from the app store. That is my fourth top app.
My third top app is going to be actually a light application that I have not decided if I’m going to buy the full paid version yet but what it is going to be if I can’t find it, it’s called iShoot Lite. Now, you guys know that I already love this app when I first reviewed it and I still do definitely. It is a fun, fantastic application. What it is, is an application for one to four players. And if you’re going to play the game called Worms Armageddon an older game, it’s basically just a stationary for the light version or if you want to buy the paid version you are able to move but if it’s just stationary shooting and fighting against each other, it’s very simple. So in the beginning, it shows you how many humans, computers and rounds you can do, what do one versus three. The difficulty, you can click up here, change your name, the color of your tank and the type of tank you have, type doesn’t really matter, just looks better or worst, whichever one you think. And you click start. It will force you to buy you some weapons which you definitely going to need, so I’ll buy few mortars, we’ll buy a couple mega mortars and we’ll buy roller. Oh this is cool. I’ve never actually seen this background. So, we are in night time, there’s my little tank right here, it’s actually kind of hard to see what this type that we have.
But anyway down at the bottom, it shows the angle that you’re shooting and aiming at. There’s a Menu button, there’s your weapons mini-mortars so we’re going to change and we’re going to go to roller and I’ll show you what the roller is. So, we’re aiming over here kind of this little green tank right here. I know it’s kind of tough to see because it’s such a dark map but anyway so we’re going to click fire and what the roller does, it rolls and hits and it blows up on the first thing that it impacts. So, that’s a pretty going and right above each tank there is a little red box. You can barely see it and that is your health so as you can see this guy is just raining missiles upon the blue and gray there, I’m fine right now, I’m red not getting touched.
So, let’s do a mega mortar and just hit the sky right next to me. And as you got one, I just killed myself over. Anyway, as you can see right there, everytime that I shoot, there’s a little percentage bar down at the bottom which shows you how much percentage and how fast you’re actually shooting far, height and all that stuff. So, it’s very simple application. It is iShoot Lite, a free app from the app store. There’s a paid version of it for I think a $1.99 and I’m still thinking about buying it. I’m really actually pretty much winning towards the—it’s such a fun, fantastic application. I will recommend that to everybody
My number two application for this review is going to be called Rolando which I actually just released an in-depth review over a few days ago. See I’m going to check that out if you want to see actual the in-depth, fuller review on it but this is such a fantastic game. It is $599 so you actually going to have to cut off a few bucks but it is definitely worth it.
What we are here is this little circle, all the circles on the screen are Rolandos. We’re just going to start menu. I will go and start game and it will bring us up to this beautiful gameboard. And in this board, it shows you all the levels. I’ve actually only completed five levels but these are all the levels that we have to go to so it’s probably about 20, 30 levels so it’s quite a few to keep you, keep you happy with. Let’s start off with the first level called Hello Rolando. I know you guys have seen this quite a few times but just to show you some gameplay. I will show this one for the review. So anyway, just select Rolando you simply tap on them, go in, flick up as simple as that. You’re tilting using accelerometer to make them go right or left, flick up to make them jump, there’s some other obstacles actually just quite a few obstacles that you encounter and I only like the fifth level so I can know what this game is definitely can become a little more complicated and definitely a lot more fun.
But anyway, as you can see right here, first level is kind of just getting used to the configuration of it just using accelerometer and all that stuff. But anyway, I got a jump to get up here, that red thing’s going to shoot me up. I got to get going and your object reach level as to get a certain amount of Rolandos to the end and to this little golden door. At the top of this game, it shows you Rolando’s saved and we need to save one so we got that done. It will show you diamonds collected and diamonds collected gives you another medal and it shows you that there is one and we did collect it. And over here shows you through that any remaining time left when you did than you did get the time medal. So, the medals are at the bottom, the bronze one shows you collected the correct amount of Rolandos, the gold ones shows you, you have the diamonds that you needed to get and the silver ones shows you that you did do it in a certain amount of time.
Very simple application, it’s so much fun, that walks you to a perfectly and constantly build on itself but just at a perfect pace. I would definitely say it‘s worth $6.00. It was actually just lower from a $10.00 price to a $6.00 price so I would recommend it. I mean look at how many levels you’re going to be able to get, you’re going to have so much fun with this application I know I am. I’m getting pretty excited to actually get through and beat the entire thing. That is Rolando, my second favorite app for these reviews, a $6.00 application from the app store.
Now, my number one application for reviews 21 to 29, I’m beating some of you guys will be able to guess what it is but it is apps Sniper, I love this application so much. In fact I know I’m going to run and I’m recurring about two seconds so I’m going to turn this off go upload this videos on to my computer and I’ll come back and do the number one for the app Sniper, be right back. Alright everybody sorry about that little delay, back to our number one application for the reviews 21 to 29. We are going to be doing apps Sniper. I do love, love, love, love this application. It is so fantastic; it saves you tons of money. If you don’t know what it is then you haven’t seen the apps to quite a while because it is blowing up. It is such a fantastic application, five out of five for the app store, I gave it four stars, for my review I want to give it a 10 out of 10 definitely. If I could I’d give 11 out of 10 because this is my favorite app I’ve actually found so far. I don’t know how anyone could top this; it is the most helpful application I have seen yet.
What it is that Sniper informs you of whenever any single application has a price reduction by any percentage or even to free so the last 24 hours, 67 apps it has a price reduction, 50%, 50%, 50%, 33%, 25%. If it’s green example right here, it will show you that it is free. So right now, we’re actually viewing all the apps that have price reductions but if you want to you can click up here and go to free and it will show you all the free apps that has been recently lowered from a certain amount of money to free. So, this is a fantastic application that’s just for on sale I just show you that. For example if you want to buy this one at the very top, you can click it and it brings you in to little something like an app store mode it looks just like it. It’s got the little handy description right down here, it has screen shot in case you want to view come of different pictures of the application to see what we’re actually looking at. It has statistics, you’ll be able to see its price and how much its sales that have been don’t know why that’s in here but it is in there.
It has Snipe and I will show what is snipping later. You can ban a seller by clicking this little circle with you through it or you can send a message. You can click buy if you want to but clicking buy it will redirect you into the app store to that very page, you can buy it immediately and download it right when the reduction has happened. So that’s for sales, if you go down on new apps down here at the bottom. And new apps show apps that are recently being released today is being released to the app store immediately. Like the latest app is released three hours ago called Ballistic light edition, there’s a bunch it has been hundred and 34 apps in the last 24 hours.
Right now once again, we are in also if you want to you can just see the free ones by collecting free and like earlier it will just show all the free one’s that has been released and this just the same way you can click on it will bring you on the exact same page. And it will be able to see if you want to go out and download and buy that application, so that is just for on sale and for new apps. You can also check hot apps which has been recently updated in the new update for your app Sniper and it shows you some of the most, most downloaded at the top apps for each category is entertainment, there’s games, entertainment, games, there’s everything; utilities, lifestyle, travel every single of these you can find in the apps it will show you the hottest ones out that right now that everybody wants to get their hands on.
Down here at the bottom, we can go over the Snipes, we’ll show you that at the end but we’re going over to the configuration at the last button and there’s 3G and Edge-on which is only for people that have iPhones so if you have an iPod touch just leave it off. Icons on, definitely recommend that, it will slow it down a tag bit like one billion of that percent but that will be able to show you each icon or each after actually you’re looking at through a picture. There’s currency USD such United States dollars, there’s store filter United States, you can ban a seller if you want to. Genre filters we’ll click that, this is actually very helpful. I have all this genre on for example reference off I turned off health care and fitness, I turned off finance, you can pretty much search to what apps you want to be looking through. You can back up Snipes, you can restore Snipes and it’s very simple application it just helps you so much, you save so much money by using this. It keeps you updated on temporary updates, temporary price drops and what we’re talking about earlier we are now in Snipe mode
These are the apps that I am personally snipping and if you don’t know what snipping is what it is, is basically you can find any app in the app store. We’re going to instead of search finder, magnifying glass and this is every single app released to date. So for example, if we want to find Touch Grind, pretty much it will show you the current price for the game. And what you can do is you can track any sale which will be one dollar cheaper or you can track it to a certain price that you’re looking for. So, that’s very simple like that, that is so helpful without snipping because you don’t have to constantly go through the apps store and find your app. Just go and add Sniper and it will show you if your app has been lowered to that price you’re looking for. So, it’s a fantastic application, recommended to anybody with an iPod or an iPhone because this will save you money. It wears you of limited time offers you can download before anyone else will know about them. It tells you when your apps has been sniped you won’t have to spend the release price on them, shows you the new apps that has just been released to a limited time introductory offers. It has everything. I would recommend this to anybody with an iPhone or iPod touch.
That’s pretty much what I got for you guys today. Those are my top five applications for app reviews number 21 to 29. I can’t wait to go through another time with you guys and hopefully we’ll be going through a few thousand pretty soon, that’s a joke. I hope not bad, it will be quite a while it will be a few decades. Anyway you guys know me to end you in a rumbling thing but anyway I will see you guys later. Have a fantastic day, afternoon, weekend, whatever you’re looking at, whatever you’re viewing this right now. I will talk to you later. Bye!
