The game is easy to play because the controls are very simplistic and straight forward. This game will give you hours of gun and definitely distract you from whatever you are avoiding to play this game!

It is safe to say that this is one of the most fun tap games of its class. Remember Angry Birds? Here is a fun and new replacement.

This games also has new features. An added helicopter and dragon skin make this game even more exciting. This game has great graphics and an easy screen so you will not get confused by a bunch of buttons while you are playing.

All the important stuff is labeled and in big letters as well—it really is for all ages. You can also keep track of your daily progress and see how far you are from the next reward.

Banana Stand doesn’t use cheap little characters that get annoying to look at either, the banana mascot is very entertaining and in no way boring. Hammy is a great gamemaker and has done it again!

Two Numbers – Merge Tiles and Earn Points Before Time Runs Out

Tiled puzzle games are a memory from the past. Remember those plastic ones you used to get in those party bags at the end of a birthday party? I don’t know about you, but I always would force on out and fix tiles in such a way that I could easily get to the finish line fast.

Nowadays, with the digital versions of tiled puzzle games, you are on your own, with your brain, of course. There is no cheating. The games have also taken on new challenges. You are not tasked with putting tiles in numeric order or building an image. You are now tasked with merging tiles and getting to the highest power of 2 before you run out of tiles to merge.

Download the app and you will see exactly what I’m talking about. The app opens up conveniently with a tutorial and explains the different ways in which tiles can be merged, how to merge them, and it even shows you what happens after the merge.

After the merge, the existing tiles shift to fill the empty slots, and you get new tiles.

Swipe correctly, and you will move closer and closer to a higher number. Swipe incorrectly, and you may just create islands of tiles that cannot merge and grow in value, leaving you stuck to forfeit and either try again or start a new game.

Within the app, which is a free download, you can adjust settings – turn the music, sound and vibrations ON or OFF. You can also rate the game, which of course helps out the creators. You can even elect to make an in-app purchase to stop the ads from polluting your gaming experience.

I personally did not find the ads to be a nuisance, but everyone has their tolerance for such things.

Back to the game – I really liked the fact that in this game, merges did not have to fall exactly in a line. You could merge a tile that was adjacent to another tile, and that other tile was adjacent to a third tile, forming a “corner.” In this case, all three tiles would merge and end up in your final swipe spot. This was something I had not seen before.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you have only so many minutes to complete a game. After the time is up, and I have not figured out what that is, your game ends and you get your score.

I have not figured out another thing which seems to be an option, but I have yet to confirm it; the ability to join in a game with someone else or to even post your scores and see if you make it to the leaderboard.

What is nice is the ability to get support from within Two Numbers. From the Main menu, tap on Support, and it allows you to send an email to the customer support team for Doros. They will be more than happy to assist you.

Mevo – Lose Weight the Fun Way

Let’s face it…we’ve all been at that place where we just don’t like what we see, and I’m not talking about a bad movie. You’ve been binging on wings and gulping down pop like there’s no tomorrow, because you look and feel great and have an exercise routine in place that got you there.

Well, reality hits hard. Sometimes, that same old exercise routine has to grow with you, and that’s when you can use a helping hand. Sure, there are lots of apps out there that let you type in your goal weight, date and more, but Mevo – Weight Loss and Fitness app is different. Mevo is with you every step of the way, in different ways. It’s a trainer, coach, media outlet and more, so you get what you need on all fronts to stay on the path to healthy.

First off, Mevo connects you at several levels. It connects you with others who are in the same boat as you, so you gain the support you need to forge ahead and not stray. Thinking of heading over to the local yogurt place tonight? Not. Your friends on Mevo won’t let you make that mistake.

The second connect is to information. Recipes, nutritional educations, and more. In general, we all know what healthy looks like, but it can be daunting. Mevo offers up options that fit your lifestyle and palate.

The third connect is to your stats. Walk, run, bike, yoga, pilates – whatever you do, you log it. Every movement counts. Mevo makes it so easy to log each activity you engage in. Walks and runs count automatically, so you get bang for your buck.

Calories and intake you will have to enter, of course, but the app makes it so easy with a barcode scanner, so you can get an instant quote on the value of what you are about to eat.

Again, this all gets logged into your database and becomes a part of the information that Mevo will use to help guide you towards your goal.

The app is so easy to use. The download is free and the interface is intuitive. There are tons of recipes to choose from based on what you like, how much time you have, and dietary restrictions. This area of the app is extremely easy to navigate and updates every so often, so there is no chance of getting bored with the selections. You can even tag favorites so you can get to them fast. What I really liked about this app is that it made meal planning so easy, this became one less dreaded chore, and more of a fun activity.

Workouts and exercise routines are abundant and fit your schedule. You simply type in your goals and expectations, and the app becomes your personal coach, helping you determine when to workout, which workout to use and you are on your way.

The fun part is the area of the app that offers quizzes and games. This keeps things lighthearted and engaging, instead of once more goal you need to achieve.

I would like to see more connectivity to a variety of devices such as Jawbone Up. This will widen the scope of accessibility to many more users, making the community larger and connectivity stronger.

I have found myself sticking to a better exercise regimen and eating a little better after using Mevo. I hope that you find the same success, as well.

Backup DVD in Only 5 Minutes with MacX DVD Ripper Pro

There is nothing more annoying than having to carry around a DVD just so you can watch a movie while on the road to your vacation destination. Maybe you just want accessibility to a movie that you now own. Once you’ve made the purchase, you have every right to have that movie accessible from any device, so you can watch it without requiring a player.

MacX DVD Ripper Pro is unlike all the other DVD ripping utilities in many ways.

First, this app is superbly easy to use. I can’t say that enough, because for someone who hates to dig around an app figure things out, this app is a boon. It easily slips onto you Mac and is extremely intuitive. You don’t have to dig around and you don’t have to read. MacX is direct and to the point. It gets you to the functions you need immediately, without making you go through lots of screens and setup, like so many other apps do.

It cleverly has built in the features required to bypass various encryptions and protections put in place to prevent you from really owning your movie. If you want to delve in a bit deeper to tweak your rips, you can do so, but it’s all up to you. You can control the encoding process, trim videos, crop images and merge titles.

You can even extract favorite scenes and clips from movies you’ve made or saved and post them on your favorite social media sites. This app can rip all types of DVDs – movies, TV series, workouts, non UDF, damaged etc., The updated version 5.5.0 rips at the speed of 250-320 FPS – 5X faster than the old version.

MacX DVD Ripper

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty now. To rip a DVD, you simply insert it into the drive and load it by clicking the DVD Button. The application itself is already packed with profiles to help you create copies that can play on iPads and iPhones, but you can set up other configurations for other destinations, such as Android devices, Windows phones and tables, and Blackberries.

For higher quality copies, you can move the settings to copy at a slower speed, ensuring that all the necessary data is captured. Again, it’s all up to you how you want to make the copy.

Once you have selected the video to copy, you click on Run and let the app do its magic. It has built in decryption and transcoding that takes from the DVD and saves what you ask for, based on all of the settings you have chosen. Keep in mind that the app works as well as the tools it has at its disposal, meaning the processors in your machine. In any case, you are running this on a Mac, so you know it will go quickly.

For folks who are bit more daring and know more about transcoding, you can take that deep dive and work on codecs to tweak minute details of your video download, like adjusting frame rates, resolutions and bit rates.

Not much is missing from this app. I would make it a bit cleaner looking for users who are not used to using these types of apps, but other than that, once you’ve used MacX DVD Ripper Pro a few times, it is incredibly easy to use and becomes second nature.

If you are looking for an easy to use app to copy DVDs and keep them forever, download MacX DVD Ripper Pro today – don’t delay.

MacX Video Converter – Video Conversions and More on Your Mac

Videos capture the story of our lives. Without them, we could not remember the squeals of joy our daughters made when surprised on their Sweet 16’s. Without them, we would not remember the gentle sounds our babies made while sound asleep. Without them, we would not remember the adventure experienced on that vacation of a lifetime.

Videos are not just for memories, but for entertainment as well. There are tons of sites out there that offer movies, TV serials and more. The issue is with what format they are stored.

If you have a Mac and use it often to play videos, then you have all that you need with MacX Video Converter Pro to get videos of all kinds and be able to play them on your Mac.

MacX Video Converter Pro offers a plethora of tools to select formats, aspect ratios, and settings for quality.

Installation is a breeze, as is always the case with anything Apple, and it works seamlessly with almost any browser.

MacX Video Converter

As part of the installation process, the application will prompt you to enter the number of “cores” on your machine to dedicate to transcoding. This allows you to set a limit on how may processors the application will use while performing its translation, which is a plus if you plan on doing something else in parallel.

Luckily, the transcoding screen does come with lots of presets, but be sure to read up on what you get for each value. You can easily go with the presets, but your particular conversion may require special parameters.

Conversion is not the only thing that this app can do. You can piece together video clips from all over, after conversions of course, and make home-grown movies. I had the most fun doing this, and it was so easy. I can’t tell you how many video clips I had saved over the years, and I kept telling myself I would create something magical out of them. Never did until I found this app, which made it effortless.

These videos can then be saved in formats that will run on your iPhone, iPad, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy and more. Yes, you can share with everyone, even if they don’t own an Apple device!

A really neat feature in this latest revision is the ability to capture video from the Mac itself. You can also create slideshows and tack on background music to boot. It’s all built in and very easy to use, which is why this application beats its competitors hands down.

I really cannot say much about what is missing in this application. I was hooked the minute I started using it. The downside with anything Mac is of course the price. This app sets you back more than if you were to purchase another application. However, every extra dollar you spend on this application will get you far more than you could ever imagine. I promise you.

If you watch or make videos often, or if you plan on doing so, then I highly recommend that you make an investment in yourself and buy MacX Video Converter Pro. This is one purchase you won’t ever regret making.

Keep it Together with Coosha Calendar

Let’s face it, we all have too much going on. We think we’ve got it all covered when we enter events and dates in our calendar, but all too often, those events get overridden with events from other parts of our lives. Work stuff happens at work, sure. But what if you forgot about the 8:00 conference call when you signed up to chaperone your kid’s field trip?

That’s where COOSHA CALENDAR comes into play. COOSHA is the all in one life organizer that helps you make sense out of madness. It’s not that our lives are maddening, but it can sure seem like it.

COOSHA is a calendar app that offers a level of flexibility and functionality that no other calendar app can match. It opens up collaboration at all levels, allowing you to hide certain items from certain users and more.

This functionality gives you the power to link what’s happening in your personal life to what’s happening in other areas, like work, family and school, so you never overbook and you can let others know your availability.

For instance, let’s say you will be on vacation for a week in July. You will definitely have this listed on your personal calendar, but instead of double dipping and entering it again on your work calendar, you can share this calendar with work colleagues so they are in the know. The privacy controls allow you to share calendars, but also define what others can and cannot see.

Another neat feature is the ability to add events that involve lots of participants and then being able to add who will be doing what, so you save time not having to email or text back and forth. You can make decisions from within COOSHA. It makes real time collaboration easy.

Each screen is well designed and easy to read, which means you can spend more time focusing on the items you need to tackle rather than on figuring out the app.

If you are worried about using a new app and having to start from scratch, fear not! COOSHA lets you import your calendars from a variety of existing app, such as Google, iOS and Windows.

The app is a great download for anyone who needs to schedule and coordinate with others in their lives, from all areas. The only downside is that the only collaboration you can have is with others who also have COOSHA CALENDAR. So, in that way, it has some of a disadvantage.

Barring that, once you get your family on board, you can guarantee that coordination of calendars and events will go much smoother and you will have fewer collisions than before, with less work on your part.

Piczle Lines DX – Strategically Place Segments to Connect the Dots and Solve Puzzles

Puzzle solvers rejoice!! If you love puzzles that stretch and exercise the mind but entertain as well, then you have got to download Piczle Lines. In a nutshell, you are creating a picture by solving a puzzle; hence, pic+zle, or piczle.

The puzzles are not like jigsaw puzzles. No, these are more sudoku-like in nature, forcing you to think about your next step before you make it. Lots of logic is involved, so be ready to flex your brain when you take this on.

The game itself is a very modular, so you can play for a while, and then start up again whenever you have time using the convenient Continue button. You’re not expected to finish anything in one go, but rather, you play a bit, then come back and play some more. Everytime you come back to your game, you will be giving your brain some time to absorb your last moves and see where you want to go next.

To play, you are basically drawing out lines and segments that eventually make a picture. As you make and complete these pictures, the images grow in complexity and challenge. Each line segment shows a number at the start and end points which define the number of segments each line should consist of. Players use this to concisely draw the colored lines.

Segments are created by linking two circles shown on the grid. Each circle has a number in it. The challenge is to draw a line that covers the number of squares represented in the circle. For instance, if you see two circles with a four in them, and there are four squares that connect them, then draw a line to connect them.

If you feel you’ve made a mistake, you can undo a drawn line or segment and start over, because the app keeps track of every line you draw.

The free to download app comes equipped with enough games to get you used to how to play and then learn the ins and outs. When you are ready for a tougher puzzle set, then you can make an in-app purchase to download them.

The only downside to the game is that it centers around one method to make the pictures: connect the dots, so to speak. Maybe adding another dimension to the game will keep things interesting.

Outside of that, this game is great for anyone of any age. There is no pressure and it makes you exercise your ability to lay out lines on a grid, without crossing over, giving it a somewhat strategic air about itself.

If you are looking for a different kind of game, then Piczle Lines DX is the one to get.

MacX MediaTrans Keeps Your iOS Devices from Getting Chaotic

If you are like me, you love your iOS devices. You’ve got your iPhone tucked away on you so you can keep in contact, keep updated, and keep busy. When you’ve got some space to spare, you pull out your iPad and get down to more serious work, or play. But when the going gets rough with space and performance, that’s when it’s time to pull out the big guns and bring everything to order.

MacX MediaTrans is an app for the Mac that brings clarity to chaos across all your iOS devices. It’s a device manager that sits on your Mac and lets you move data across your devices, and even allows you to transfer as well, so you can free up some space on the device that needs it most.

In a nutshell, it lets you manage, transfer, and backup files of all kinds from your mobile devices to the Mac. Still in love with the movie you downloaded three years ago on your iPad, but know you won’t watch it for another few more? Then transfer it to your Mac. When you are ready to watch, MediaTrans will let you put it back on the device of your choice. But will keep it safe and sound until you are ready.

If your iPhone has too many songs on it and you can see a significant drain on performance, then move some of those songs to your Mac. You will still have them, and you can recall them anytime you want.

MediaTrans

How about those movies that, in your mind, are all treasures to be kept forever. Your device may not entirely feel the same way, and to be honest, who wants to rummage through all of those files to look for what you really want. Make it a point to download the videos you know you won’t watch for a while, like the ones from five years ago. If you ever need to see them, they are on your Mac!

The features are endless and include:

  • Direct transfers of photos, videos, music from mobile to Mac and back
  • Extract audio from M4V and save as MP4 or MP3
  • Transforms your iPhone into a USB to send files
  • Media management from the MAC: manage playlists, tracks, albums and genres
  • Delete media from mobile devices after backup to Mac
  • Quick transfers that maintain quality
  • Videos auto rotate on mobile devices when needed

And there is so much more. I thought iTunes was enough to keep my media well managed and backed up, but MacX MediaTrans is so much better.

I would say that the one thing that would make it even better is the ability to push data from my device to the Mac so that I could transfer and save from my mobile device instead of having to drive all the transfers from my Mac.

Until then, I have made great use of MacX MediaTrans to keep my memories and keep my mobiles machines purring to perfection.

Camera Guard Blocker Protects Your Privacy

We are all aware of the creepy, yet believable rumors of our phone, laptop and PC cameras being used to spy on us by the government. Even not that extreme, thousands of personal cameras are hacked by those trying to spy on our private lives. If you aren’t aware of this, you are now. If you aren’t afraid of it happening to you, maybe you should be.

Do not worry though, there is a way to make sure you and your cameras are safe from these tricks. A new app has been created to do just that—protect you and your cameras.

The camera guard blocker app for Android is a new and innovative smart camera blocker. It features highly secure camera protection to make sure that no hacker, malware or spyware can observe you when you are unaware. Not only does it prevent spying, but it detects even attacks in the past. This app is one of many preferred by over one million users in over one hundred countries.

As said before, the Camera Guard from ProtectStar ensures that no spy or malware can watch you. With only one click of the camera, your smartphone can be under total protection from applications like surveillance and spyware.

Camera Guard Blocker

However, this app is more than just a new and improved safety product. It is uncompromising and unparalled as a solution to secure every Android device it is put on, while offering full camera protection.

This app does a lot of complicated things but it is very user friendly. With just one click, the protection is activated and blocks and observes all processes and programs that may try to use the webcam of your smartphone. Also, every breach that is attempted will be reported with a signal. And to further prevent these hacks, the individual settings of the app can be made with a pin specified by you, and secured by hacker safe protection. The intelligent Depp Detective software the app uses also detects previous attacks.

This app created a versatile and intelligent detective that can observe all accesses to your Android device. Just like an alarm system, an intrusion or a firewall detection system is included.

The Deep Detective software of this app can control which app or process attempts to access the camera. Basically, every possible way you can be spied on is restricted from spies, Trojans, and hackers.

If you are worried about overcrowding your device, do not be. The Camera Guard with activated Deep Detective can be used along with existing security solutions like firewalls or anti-virus scanners.

The features of this app include camera protection, camera blocker, Deep Detective, logfile protocol, password protection and widget. The camera can also be added to a whitelist and contains a list of apps with approved camera access.It is extremely user friendly and makes me feel a lot safer. The design of the app is also very simple and easy to follow.

Camera Guard Blocker is very user friendly and does not complicate things for you at all. You can easily access the apps in your phone through the app that you wish the camera to be used for, so that you don’t have to do it individually.

Overall, this is a great new app.
