App Focus: Flappy Bird

wpid-Screenshot_2014-01-29-21-57-07.pngWait right there. Only read this and download the game if you willingly want to be frustrated and for something to question your gaming abilities.

It is insanely addictive.

Flappy Bird has taken the smartphone game by storm. It’s incredibly basic, has limited controls, quite rubbish graphics (those that’d resemble a Playstation One or a Gameboy Advance) and quite a basic format.

However, this doesn’t prevent it from being an all round fun game to play. These past few weeks have seen the popularity of this game soar… Continue reading

App Focus: Blackberry Messenger

Yes, I’ve reviewed BBM for Android/iOS right here : BBM Android – App Reviewunnamed (1)

Yes, I’ve given my thoughts on BBM Android – Which by the way has 1,111 views

I figured I should do something a little more updated. I’ll give it a second chance…

I haven’t uninstalled BBM on my phone as it provides me with reaching a tiny percentage of my blog’s target audience, so it has come into good use.

However, the reason why I have decided to re-review it briefly is because BBM are testing and are currently planning of releasing BBM Voice calls to their users pretty soon. Continue reading

App Focus: SnapChat

snapchat-logoSnapChat has taken the smartphone biz by storm with its immense popularity with the younger consumer. I don’t use it that much personally but as an app and also as an innovation, it certainly filled the narrow gap in the market.

It has moved on from the days of just sending a “snap” to a friend for a limited amount of time before being auto-erased. Such a clever creation. Now you can also take videos, add effects, doodle on top of them and also make “stories” that are compiled with pictures and/or videos.

But you didn’t come here to read that. You may already be familiar with this app due to its vast  media coverage last year… Continue reading

App Focus: Reckless Racing 2

screen568x568Reckless Racing 2 is quite frankly THE single best top-down racing game I’ve played on Android. Polarbit never fails to impress

The game is fluid, fast, online and has excellent graphics.

There are many different characters and vehicles to unlock, each with their own individual traits..

As a former Reckless Racing (1) player, I knew this was going to be an even better experience… Once I started playing this game, it was quite difficult to stop… Continue reading

BBM Android – App Review

blackberry-live-keynote-bbm-cross-platform-4So this week saw the rise (and fall?) of BBM Android and for iOS. I was waiting for this for quite a long time to be honest. Just the fact that it was becoming a multi-platform app was amazing in its own right. When it went live, I immediately downloaded it without second thought!

But to my surprise (barely), I was put on a waiting list in order to have the app running with my own unique BBM pin. Which is fair enough i guess, considering the influx of users registering the first time round.

It sorta made sense…

I didn’t wait for nature (or virtual nature, rather) to take its course and went and looked for workarounds to get it working quicker.

So after twiddling about with the app itself for a while, I skipped the queue and jumped right to the front…. you know, as you would….
