Did you know that you can use your iPhone to hunt for lost or buried treasure? OK, maybe not real treasure, but still …
Tap “more” to discover ten apps that will have you scrambling through brambles, using multi-million dollar satellites to search for camouflaged tupperware in places you never even knew existed until now.
We review a lot of games here at iPhone.AppStorm, and the ones that do the best — both financially and by popular vote — tend to be the ones that take advantage of the iPhone’s screen (think Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and similar games). Hungry Lizards fits into that category, and that’s one of the reasons we’re happy to have them as our weekly sponsor.
As the story goes, you’re a lizard — either Spike or Lizia, based on your decision at the beginning of the game — and you’ve been traveling the world because of the great bug famine of 2013. So you’re hungry. Real hungry. And you have to catch bugs in the air with your tongue.
It’s not easy.
This is a game about timing. You have to jump at a certain time because you’ll always travel the same arcs, but you also have to consider how fast the flies are flying and how far your tongue can reach. You get more points for more difficult to reach flies, and trust me, they’re not easy to get. This is a game that will test your skills.
You’ve got a few different playing modes to choose from. There’s multiplayer, real-time co-op and single player to choose from, and then you have 10 levels, 10 bosses and extra bonus rounds that you can unlock as well. Play with your pals via Bluetooth, Game Center or Facebook — pick your poison. Oh, and it’s a universal app as well, so you can play it on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
But the best part about this game? The developers promise no in-app purchases — ever. Now that’s impressive.
Get It Now!
Hungry Lizards is just $0.99 in the App Store, and it’s worth every penny. It’s an addictive little romp that you’re sure to play for long stretches at a time, and it’s free of in-app purchases. What else are you waiting for? Go get it now!
While conversing with a friend they recommend a new movie they’ve seen, an album they recently downloaded, or a restaurant they really enjoy. What do you do with this information? Some individuals will attempt to make a mental note, while others will immediately whip out their iPhone (or perspective smartphone) and enter the information into an app of their preference.
If you find yourself in the latter group, I bet dollars to doughnuts that most of you use the first-party Notes app for this function. Others will make use of a third-party notes app such as Evernote, Catch Notes or Simplenote. While all of these apps are useful for jotting down a quick word or twelve, a more customized approach may be better for managing a list that include items of this nature. Enter Thinglist, an app solely dedicated to such a task. (more…)
The premise sounds simple enough. We’re here to play golf. Get the little ball that starts on one side of the course into the little hole on the other side. And yet, with Super Stickman Golf, we see how deliciously complicated that process can become. Noodlecake Studios did a fantastic job imagining this classic game.
And now they’re back again with Super Stickman Golf 2. Is it the same old story? Is it a different take on the same game? Is it worth trying? Let me try and give you a taste of Super Stickman Golf 2. (more…)
I recently tried out Minibar, a great app for discovering new cocktails. I’d been stuck in a cocktail rut, mixing the same drinks over and over again. More than just an app full of cocktail recipes to refresh your taste buds, Minibar also teaches you how to make the drinks, all about the tools of a good bar and how to keep your own minibar stocked.
I can learn all of that with a good web search, though. Does Minibar have enough beyond a few good cocktail recipes to make it worth a slot on my homescreen? (more…)
I’ve spent the past six months or so looking for a great replacement for the stock Camera app. The nice thing about the stock app is that it’s accessible from the lock screen and it’s incredibly quick. Things like that are valuable in a smartphone.
That being said, the stock app also ignores social capabilities for the most part. You have to open a different app to share photos from the camera roll to Facebook or Twitter. Beyond that, it looks more like a point-and-shoot than it does a camera specifically designed for mobile. Now, there’s finally a camera app that addresses these problems with ease: Analog Camera.

Welcome back to Game Friday, friends! This week’s line-up includes a lot of punching, some driving, a bit of block shuffling and some nice toilet cleaning.
Yes, you heard me. And I bet you’re going to have a lot of fun with it too, so come on in and see what we’ve collected for you! (more…)
Games are pretty popular topics for reviews here at iPhone.AppStorm, and when Apple decides to spotlight one in the App Store, we take notice. That’s why I jumped on the chance to review Dead Ahead, a zombie runner made by the same people who brought us Cut the Rope and Robbery Bob.
Although Dead Ahead is fun, easy to learn and fits most of my standards for an iPhone game, it does have one big problem. Something that looms over most apps nowadays, but this time with a new twist — one that’s just as insidious as the zombies that roam the game’s universe. Do you dare go forward to find out? (more…)
Add text to your photos with PicLab, which not only offers a quality selection of fonts (no super-cheesy typefaces here), plus the ability to add multiple text boxes, in different fonts and colors.
Bonus: You can turn your text box any which way you want on the image, drag it anywhere on the screen, and resize it — all in a snap. Click “more” to learn more about it. (more…)
