Sponsors

hungrylizardsWe 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!

So you’re out and about, searching for that special tool that you need to get your project done — a screw, piece of shiny fabric or whatever it is. You find it, but it’s pricey, and you want to know if you can get it cheaper somewhere else. So you pull out your iPhone, take a shot of the item with CamFind, and sure enough, it’s out there.

OK, now it’s Tuesday and you’re in a part of town where there are a lot of good looking restaurants with menus written in languages you don’t understand. No sweat. Out comes CamFind, you take a picture and next thing you know, you’ve got a translation.

Alright, one last one. You’re in a strange city for work, and you walk past a memorial to something that seems important. You want to know more, but there doesn’t seem to be any pertinent info anywhere about. Pull out CamFind, take a shot of the memorial and it comes back with info on it. Like magic.

CamFind is a little bit of magic in your pocket. It can do all of the things listed above, as well as find reviews and trailers for movies; restaurant reviews from photos of their sign; find nearby coffee shops; and scan QR codes. It’s got a lot wrapped up in a nice little package, making it an app that you’ll surely want to have on your home screen.

Get It Now!

Did that peak your interest? No? Well how about this: it’s free. That’s right, CamFind is available for the low price of free, and it comes complete with all of those features. Is it the perfect app to have? Maybe. But it’s definitely one you’ll want to keep handy. I know it’s changed my iPhone for the better.

Somewhere along the iOS path, Apple introduced its panorama feature, whereby you could use your iPhone’s camera to take panoramic images just by holding it steady and sliding it to the right. Neat, right? So why would you need another app that does the same thing and even has the name Panorama? Well it turns out that Apple doesn’t have everything figured out with the panorama situation, and the team at Wondershare has a few ideas to improve on the stale premise.

You start off with an open shutter and a camera view, just like you’d have with your regular camera app. But this time, you start by picking out a filter to use for your photo, just like you would on Instagram or similar apps. Next, you take your pic. Now you think that’d be it, but you can also add a second filter on top of the first, giving you even more options to choose from.

Soak that in for a sec. That means that you’ve got dozens of options for your shots. No two panoramic images will look the same. How cool is that?

Plus, there are other great features as well. Edit photos, send them wirelessly to friends or just share them with your friends to any of the dozen or so social networks you can connect to the app. Not too shabby, right?

Go Get It!

Panorama is available right now for just $0.99, a price that’s well worth it. If you’re looking for other camera apps, the Wondershare team also has a ton of other cool options, including PowerCam which has tons of live effects including color splash, tilt-shift and more. They also have PowerSketch, an easy-to-use sketching application. But don’t just take our word for it, go out and get it now!

Ever played Super Mario Galaxy before? There’s this one level where you have to blow up this giant rock-like thing and to do so, you have to use these ghosts that also act as bombs. To catch the ghosts, you spin the controller to whirl them into a sling, and then you swing the ghost into the rock thing. Do it enough times and you win the level.

I bring that up because our Weekly Sponsor, Robi: Cosmic Savior, uses a similar mechanic. You play as Robi, a little guy whose planet is in trouble. See, there was this big brouhaha out in space that caused all of the meteors to go our of whack. Next thing Robi knew, they’re flying towards his planet, and he’s the only one with a way to stop them.

To do that, Robi has a little assistant robot deal that he can control. With each meteor that comes onto the screen, he can send off that assistant to mine the meteor for minerals, spin it into orbit (to protect the planet from other meteors) or just fling it off away from you. And that’s how this all relates to the aforementioned Super Mario Galaxy.

This is another one of those simple and fun games that I love to play. It’s free, it utilizes the touch mechanic in a simple and clear way, plus it’s easy to pick up and put down. To me, that’s pretty much everything that a game needs to be, and Robi: Cosmic Savior has all that and more.

Go Get It!

So here’s the pitch: Robi: Cosmic Savior is a fun, frenetic game that uses the iPhone (and iPad, this is a Universal App) to its core strengths. The question becomes, should you get it? For me, the answer is pretty clear. Why wouldn’t you?

It seems like games on iOS are a dime a dozen these days. It’s hard to find anything different that stands out in the category, particularly when we’re flooded by Angry Birds clones and anything else that will make a cheap buck. But what we don’t have a ton of are multiplayer games set in a sci-fi universe, complete with real-time strategy components. And that brings me to this week’s sponsor, Space Settlers.

The premise isn’t simple. It has to do with man’s fascination with the “God Particle,” Hawking and time travel. But that’s OK, you’ll figure it out as you go. The basic gist is similar to other battlefield games, in that you play with a semi top-down view of the playing field, and you have to navigate your troops to their appropriate positions. Your soldiers are various mecha and other vehicles, and there are lots of different options with more than 100 accessories to choose from. Basically, there’s no way you’re going to run out of ways to play this game, because there’s a ton to do, and it’s all right there on your iPhone (or iPad, naturally).

Go Get It!

Space Settlers is free, and it’s a pretty addicting game, so get ready to settle in for a few long afternoons of fun. If you want to advance the game faster, there are in-app purchases of Dark Energy that you can buy, but it’s purely optional so don’t let that turn you off in any way. This is one of the good games that breaks the cookie cutter mold and sets out to create its mark on the genre. Support it today!

We’re bombarded with logos and advertising slogans all day long. Right now there may be an Apple logo on your computer, or maybe a thing of Yoplait Yogurt with their logo emblazoned on the side. But if you were to try to figure out what logos were what without the benefit of having the name in it, would you be able to? This is the premise of Logo Quiz, a fun game that is free for the next week!

So you want to know how it works, right? The game shows you either an entire logo, or a portion of the logo. You have to choose between four different possible options. If you get it right, you move forward. If not, the streak is ended.

But wait, there’s more. You start the game with a certain amount of gems. If you need a hint, just spend a few gems and some of the options get eliminated for you. And before you start thinking that this is all about in-app purchases, you also earn gems the longer your streaks go.

What makes Logo Quiz different from the competition is the new Multiplayer Mode. This allows you to challenge your friends via email and Facebook, or you can just challenge some random people to see who’s the better competitor. Coming soon, no more ads, plus loaded in-app purchases worth $0.99.

Go Get It!

You’d better head to the App Store right now, because Logo Quiz is only free for a few more days! Over 5 million users play this game today and over 1 billion logos have been answered — get yourself in on the fun! Go get hooked on it now!

Our featured sponsor this week is Bitrix24, an app that utilizes social enterprise, project management, file sharing, online document management, CRM and a whole ton of other things, all in one place.

Alright, we get it. That sounds like a mouthful for a description, right? So let’s just boil this down to brass tacks.

Bitrix24 is a unified workspace for your company. This lets you exchange information between your employees in a number of different ways, and it’s all in one app. Prior to Bitrix24, you might have to use a multitude of different applications to get things done — BaseCamp for project management, Yammer for IM and social networking, Google Drive for shared calendars and information — and even then nothing would work in harmony. Bitrix24 combines all of those elements and puts them in one secure location in the cloud, making sure that your data is safe from harm and only your employees can access it.

Think about how much easier that could make things for your business. Now you have one centralized place for all of your employees to check in, get their tasks, schedule things out, write and even more. Just the savings on licensing fees alone for some companies is huge, think about the additional productivity!

There’s a lot of stuff crammed into Bitrix24, that’s for sure — even more than we can get into here. If you have a small business and are interested in the service, it’s absolutely free if your company has 12 employees or less. There’s also a free license available to startups for a limited time — that’s a $2,400/year savings!

Go Get It!

If you’re a small business owner, want to get that startup off the ground or have a few employees you want to manage, Bitrix24 is a great way to go. The iPhone app is free, and don’t forget about that free startup option!

Our featured sponsor this week is AnyShape — Photo Editor, a powerful and versatile tool for editing your photos on your iPhone.

One great thing about the iPhone is the ability to take amazing photos wherever you are, but what about when it comes time to edit those pictures? Sure, you can add fancy effects with lots of different apps, but I’m talking about real, Photoshop-style editing. What app does that?

AnyShape — Photo Editor lets you edit your photos in extremely detailed ways. You can use a selection tool the cut an image out from its background, or change the selected area. Want to apply effects? Sure, you can do that too, including pixelate, greyscale and more. Or you can just cut out a portion of the photo and make the background transparent. Seriously, there’s a lot of tools at your disposal with this app, and it all works with your fingers.

In fact, let’s get specific. You’ve got your Bezier selection tool, a finger smudging tool, selective filtering and coloring, shape cropping — this thing is jam packed. Plus, it can process any image up to 10MP or 25MB. Through that in with a ton of filters and professional enhancement tools, and that’s a pretty solid package for under a buck.

Ultimately, AnyShape — PhotoEditor gives you freedom. You don’t have to hop onto your Mac to edit your photos anymore, you can do them right away from the comfort of your couch or while riding to work on the train. No matter where you are, you have all the same tools on hand as you would with your Mac, but they’re in your pocket. That’s pretty impressive.

Go Get It!

Right now, AnyShape — Photo Editor is on sale for just $0.99, so scoop it up while you can!
