Having another streaming content option is usually a good thing. I’ve got Netflix, Slingplayer, HBO Go and various TV station Apps. There is no shortage of things to watch on the go. When I saw the announcement for the Amazon Instant Video App I downloaded it immediately. I figured that since I already pay for Amazon Prime, I might as well take advantage of this benefit. I just

got a chance to play with the App and it does the kinds of things I expected right off the bat. I signed in with my Amazon credentials and I was presented with a display of available TV shows and movies for instant streaming. So far so good. I randomly picked an episode of Fringe to watch and the quality was decent. Again, this is all good, but…

Trouble in paradise…

amazoninstantvideo_wifi_iphone5


While the App performed as I expected, I was completely dismayed to find out that it only worked via WiFi. That’s right, no 3G/4G cellular support. While you can watch any videos that you’ve downloaded, you can’t stream anything once you step outside the range of a WiFi Network. This seems like a huge step backwards in 2013. In the early days many apps were restricted from streaming over 3G because AT&T was the only network that supported the iPhone and AT&T/Apple feared that millions of streaming customers would bring the network to its knees. However, those days have long gone since the iPhone is available now on several carriers. Also since most carriers charge for a certain amount of data use each month, users are careful not to do a ton of streaming unless their plans support it. I think that it’s very shortsighted of Amazon to limit their App this way. Perhaps put up a warning when I user starts a stream over cellular data and then once the user taps OK they’re on their own. The other problem (and this is not just an Amazon problem) is that the App doesn’t support AirPlay. So If I understand this correctly, I have to be on my WiFi network to enjoy the App, and since I’m home on my network I can’t even enjoy the show on my big screen HDTV? With these limitations, this will not be my goto App.


If you have an Amazon Prime account or you’ve purchased downloadable movies via Amazon, then the App is probably worth having on your device. However, the WiFi requirement and lack of AirPlay/HDMI out support will make it a limited experience.

When I was a kid one of my favorite games to play was Connect Four, the classic game where you connect four of one’s own discs of the same color next to each other vertically, horizontally, or diagonally before your opponent.


The joy of the game is that it’s never the same it’s fun to play with anyone who will spend a few minutes (or

a few hours) trying to connect, well, four of the same color discs next to one another before you can.


A new iOS game, Connect & Pop, while based on Connect Four, takes the classic game and makes it better with a host of fun new challenges, a pleasing design and social features which never leave you without an opponent to play against.


The goal of Connect & Pop, like its inspiration, is to connect four or more pieces of your color horizontally, vertically or diagonally. That alone would make Connect & Pop a good game, but what makes it a great game? Well…



Pop Mode – Adding a spin to the classic Connect Four game, Pop Mode gives players the option to remove one of your pieces from the last row of the board. This simple twist adds a new layer of strategy and fun to the game.
A 10×7 board – A larger board than the traditional 6×7 board provides more options to best your opponent.
Skill levels – 5 different skill levels to let you hone your skills on your own, prepping you for epic battles against friends and family.
Achievements – If you don’t win anything, what’s the point in playing, right? Connect & Pop features over 30 different achievements you can collect as you play the game!

But wait, there’s more. In addition to playing with the people sitting around you, Connect & Pop is Game Center enabled! This means you can play your other friends on Game Center or random opponents and stake your claim to the top of the Game Center leader board. Not only that, but you can play a game on a single device, or play others with iOS devices using bluetooth connectivity.


Add all that to some polished graphics, sound effects and music and you’re left with an iOS gaming experience that you’ll truly enjoy at a price that can’t be beat.


If you’re like me and like Connect Four, you’ll love Connect & Pop.

If there’s one question that I get asked a lot, more than any other as a matter of fact, it’s “how do you keep finding Apps to review?”. I started thinking about that question today as I was thinking about what I wanted to say about this App. The truth is, I don’t go looking for Apps “just to review” usually. For the most part the Apps that I review are Apps that I have found to solve a problem. After all, if it doesn’t solve a problem, what good is it really? Recently I started the process of moving into my new town

home. Before I moved even the first thing in though, I decided that I wanted to paint things to make it feel more like home, more mine from day one. I headed over to the hardware store to start looking at colors and quickly realized that I had no idea what color I wanted. So, being me, I immediately went to my iPhone for help. What I found is quite possibly THE best iPhone App for anyone planning on painting anything in their home. Colorsmart not only helps you find your paint color, it helps you calculate how much paint you will need, and lets you preview it on a wide assortment of example rooms. These rooms aren’t simulated digital representations of rooms, rather they are photos of actual rooms. Even though this is an App about house paint, the design, quality, and execution make it an App for other developers to strive to emulate.

Find Your Color
First and foremost this App is about getting you the right color for your project. Whether you’re painting a bathroom, bedroom, kitchen or barn, Behr Colorsmart is the perfect App to help identify the right color for you. There are a few different options to find the correct color. The first option is to use the Explore Color tab. This pulls up a palette of every color that Behr offers. Choose your desired color family,  the color style (muted, pure, or shaded), and the specific hue. When you have made your selection Colorsmart shows you not only the paint name and number, but it also shows you complimenting colors, and offers to show you a preview of it. This is TRULY a well thought out App.

Have a color that you want to match? Not a problem! use your iPhone’s industry leading camera to take a photo, or choose a photo from your photo library. Once your image is loaded pinch to zoom in to the specific area that you would like to match and simply tap on the area. Colorsmart will bring up that color from the Behr line of paints, again with the name and Behr number. Once you have chosen your color, save it to favorites by tapping the icon in the upper right hand corner for future reference.
 

Once you’ve chosen your colors, the last thing to figure out before you head to the store to purchase it, is how much paint you will need. Behr has you covered there too! Under the More tab at the bottom of the screen, you will find a Paint calculator that will help you determine exactly how many gallons you’re going to need to finish your project!
 
The Bottom Line
This App has it all! As you can see from the screen shots and the description, this App has it all; great UI, in depth functionality, and extreme usefulness! If you’re planning a painting project any time soon, you need this App. Colorsmart will help you save time, get the perfect color, and buy the correct amount of paint. It’s truly one of the most useful Apps I’ve ever seen.
 
You can get Behr Colorsmart for your iOS device from the iTunes store for free here:

Sherlock Holmes is a character loved by millions whose tales of crime and intrigue have entertained millions for years.
Sherlock Holmes for the iPad from GUTENBERGZ INC. tells the classic tales of Sherlock Holmes with original music, art, and more, on the iPad! 
The first thing you’ll notice when launching the app is the custom art used in each story. Not only is the art unique, it adds a new dimension to Sherlock Holmes and differentiates the app from many others found on the iPad.
Sherlock Holmes for iPad contains five different stories and 100 pages of immersive storyte

lling. Each page features interactive elements, music and more which add to the already fantastic stories.

The five stories included in the app are:
1.The Five Orange Pips
2. The Red-Headed League
3. The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle
4. The Adventure of the Beryl Coronet
5. The Adventure of the Speckled Band
Five great tales to be sure, but far from the 56 short stories and 4 novels in the entire collection. Breezing through the stories and wanting more is one of the few things I did not like about the app. It would be nice to see the future updates to the app include new stories.
That said, for the a unique iPad reading experience using the outstanding stories of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes for the iPad is an app you’ll definitely want to purchase.

My kids love storybook apps on the iPad, as I’m sure so many kids do. There are a ton of them, and honestly it can become a bit overwhelming trying to weed through the good from the bad. That’s what I try to do with these reviews, bring you those that I find my kids thoroughly enjoy.
Who Stole The Moon is one they’ve been liking a lot lately. Not just because it’s a well put together children’s storybook, but because it has almost all the essential pieces that they’ve come to expect, plus a fun story as well. It’s more than just a storybook though
Read More
, it’s an interactive story, with music and games for kids to enjoy even after they’ve gone through the story time and again. There are 8 original songs and 4 different games for the children to play.

The story is about a boy who loves looking out his sky-light at the Moon. He finds one night that he can’t see it, it’s missing…and attempts to track down who took it. His adventure leads him outside to talk with various nocturnal animals, learning about what they do, all the while trying to find the “Moon thief”.
The app is full of very vivid illustrations and nice animations as well as the games and songs I mentioned earlier. It has 15 different languages to choose from, and is narrated (if you so choose) very well. The story itself is fun and cute, and my kids really loved it. Funnily enough my oldest daughter used to have a fascination with the Moon when she was very young, once asking if she could borrow her grandfather’s ladder to climb up to it…she was 2. The idea that the Moon is missing is a neat take on a children’s story, and the story isn’t overly complicated, but does a great job of explaining how the Moon can be hidden at times, what happens outside the house at night, and keeps kids engaged while doing so.
My only issue with the app was that it is a portrait only application. I’m not sure why this bothers me, but my first instinct when using storybook apps with the kids is to turn it landscape, and this wasn’t an option here. I hate to knock an app for something like this, as I’m sure it’s a design choice based on content, but when I sit down with a kid on each side, landscape orientation just works better.
Other than that, I can say the app was a hit at our house, kids aged 5 & 7, and has become a go-to bedtime story already.

LodgeNet provides the hotel TV service for many of the hotels in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Miami and Seattle. Unfortunately although you have a choice in hotels, you don’t really have a choice in hotel entertainment systems. However, if you do happen to stay in a property that has LodgeNet and you have an iOS device (this is a Universal app) with internet access you can use it to control your TV, get information about the hotel you’re staying in and if the service allows you can even check out the r

oom service and other services. Of course you can also order video on demand right from your iOS device.
Works in San Francisco
 
I’m traveling on business this week and I got to my room last night. I had downloaded the LodgeNet App a while ago, but this was the 1st time that I was in a property that supports it. I may have been in one before, but I don’t always turn on the hotel TV when I travel. During my channel surfing I saw the ad for the App and remembered that I already had it. So I decided to give it a try. You pair the App with your current room’s TV by displaying the code (I imagine it changes with each new guest) on the TV from the entertainment menu. Key that code into the App on your device and you’re all set. From that point on you can use the touch screen on your iDevice to change channels, control the volume and order video on demand content. It’s simple and it works, but it could be so much more. As a TV remote it’s cool, but not a killer App. However, if it tied into things like ordering room service, making reserations at hotel restaurants, etc., ordering car services/taxis, summoning the bellhop, unlocking the door when you return to the room, wakeup calls, digital do-not-disturb signs, etc. then the App would be infinitely more usable. As it stands the App works as advertised, but it would be nice to see it go way beyond TV control.
