I WANT SXX – Find Mates in Your Locality

Finding mates is almost always hindered by conflicting interests. This is one thing that many social apps have never understood. The app developers who keep this fact in mind when developing their products are always happy at the end of the day because the products come out successful. Let’s take a look at one of these apps to try and see if the developer did a good job.

I WANT SXX is an app that has been made to make it easier for people all over the world to find mates who are within their locality. This way, the user is sure that the chosen mate will be reachable should they decide to take things to the next level. The best thing about this app is that all the searching is done privately and you are never pressured to share your personal details. You only have to specify your gender and the gender of your ideal mate and the rest will be taken care of. You will also get the assurance that nobody else is eavesdropping on your chats because all the communication is done over secured and encrypted HTTPS connections.

Needless to say, you will need a supported android device to buy, install and run this app. After installation, the next step is actually looking for a friend. It’s really that simple. If like me you prefer to install the free version of an app before buying the full version, then this app will be a big disappointment. However, once you buy it, you’ll realize that it’s a worthwhile investment.


To find a friend, you need to first specify your gender and the gender of the person that you are looking for. The app will search and bring you a list of people of the specified gender within 60 miles (100 km) from your current location. Every time a new match is found, the phone vibrates. I found this to be very useful because I didn’t have to stare at the screen during searches. The time taken to find a potential mate will vary depending on your location. In London, it took me less than 30 seconds to get reasonably large list of potential mates. The list was actually longer than I needed but hey, who doesn’t want a variety to pick from?

After chatting with a mate and closing the chat, the app has been made to ensure that you don’t have to remember their ID to avoid chatting with them again. All users that you’ve had chats with will not appear on your search results list for 60 minutes from the time when you ended the chats. I also loved the fact that the app puts users in control of who they chat with and how long they chat. You won’t have to continue with a chat when you don’t feel like chatting. As soon as you feel like you have had enough, you’ll only need to close the chat and all the messages and media that was shared will be deleted.

The most outstanding feature of I WANT SXX is the no repeat guarantee. You won’t need to keep checking the people on your search results list against a list of people you’ve communicated with. As soon as you are through with an individual, that’s all. They will not appear on your list for the next 60 minutes. Unfortunately, the app doesn’t come with a free version for trying out its features. Developers should consider adding this for the good of the many people who like testing the depth of the water before diving in. Nonetheless, it’s an amazing app that’s worth every penny spent.

Fox Tales: Rocket Run – A Simple and Unique Entertainment App

There are very few games that you can find that can give you both adventure and thrill. However, when you have Fox Tales: Rocket Run; you will get the best adventure in a very thrilling way. I have seen quite a number of entertainment applications but this is quite unique and very interesting. The app offers more than just a game and it is what would suit you after a long and frustrating day. Have a look at this review and get to know all that there is about this app.

First of all this is a simple and unique entertainment app. The app is about Kizu the fox and the rocket. The fox is strapped with a rocket on his back which propels him to the sky. However, the journey to space is not all smooth and quiet but there are so many challenges which Kizu has to overcome. In case he fails to beat these challenges and obstacles the fox will fall and a grave stone appears at the point where he has fallen.

Rockets are very fast and so as you might have expected this is also a very fast game. It is the fast and dangerous speed that brings out the thrill in the game. The adventure is brought out by the tour and the obstacles that Kizu has to beat in order to progress. The graphics of the apps are of the best quality and you will definitely like whatever you will be seeing. The game is also not just quiet all through but there are some very entertaining tunes and sounds that you will enjoy.

fox tales rocket run

Fox Tales: Rocket Run is simple to learn yet very hard to master. Once you have downloaded and installed the app, you will be set to go to have a thrilling game full of adventure. Kizu the fox is strapped with a rocket on his back and thus your job will be to steer Kizu into the sky and help him dodge the numerous objects that are falling from the sky. The falling objects include spinning saws and burning saw blades. Nonetheless there are also birds in the sky that you need to dodge so as not to collide and crash. However, there is an option of taking armor so as to use to protect Kizu in case of a collision.

All through the tour there will be coins floating around you. In order to collect these coins and get bonuses you will have to use a coin magnet. This magnet will attract all the coins around you and thus you can be able to collect as much as possible. The app can be played by several players though not all at once. The progress made by each player will be recorded and stored. This way, while playing the game you can also see the point where your friends reached which will be marked by a grave stone. Thus the game is not just entertaining but also competitive.

The app runs smoothly in almost all devices but it is noted that it is quite slow and hangs a bit when using it on a few lower end devices; otherwise it is a good app.

Monitor Your Android Device with SpyWarn

There is one thing that a spy can never thrive without. This one thing is a communication medium. A spy must have a way of sending and sometimes receiving information. This is the reasoning behind the creation of SpyWarn. Unlike antivirus apps that try to identify harmful files and apps by checking them against a database with known harmful apps, SpyWarn looks at the behavior of the suspect apps. Is this approach effective in finding harmful applications and keeping you safe? Read on to find out

Just like the name suggests, SpyWarn is an app that has been built to warn Android users whenever there is a potential risk. It monitors all the installed applications and gives alerts whenever something looks scary. There is also an alert that checks if your phone’s microphone and data transmitter are on at the same time. Basically, this app tries to perform all possible checks that can establish whether or not somebody is using your phone to get information about you without your knowledge. Needless to say, this app brings a modern solution to the ordinary Android user. What’s more? It’s easy to use and intuitive!

Just like any other Android application available from anywhere, you need to first verify that you have a supported device. Installation is simple and straightforward and doesn’t require any special technical know-how. After installation, the first screen will be something close to what many people would think is a media player. There’s a large round play ‘button’ at the center of the screen and the words Start Test immediately above it. Tapping on this button will take you directly to the survey which is used to give the app some background information about your phone and generally the usage.


After taking the test, you have the option of running an analysis of your phone’s activity. Apart from setting the time that you want the analysis to run, you won’t need to input any data into the app. All the work is done automatically for you and you only have to sit back and relax as you wait for the results. The results are saved in the history tab for future reference. You can also read about spying and your security when using mobile phones from the included eBook titled “Is My Cell Phone Bugged” by Kelvin D. Murray (Hardcover version available at $17.95).

One unique aspect of this app is the real time guard that notifies you whenever the microphone and transmitter are working concurrently. Although this is not a fool-proof method of telling that you are being spied on, it’s a reason for you to do some extra investigation to verify that someone is not listening in on your conversations. Another unique aspect is the eBook that you get for free just by buying the app. This eBook is very informative and comes with a lot of information concerning spying and mobile phones.

One thing that turned out to be very annoying in the app is the alert during calls. Sometimes an app may be synchronizing data (causing the transmitter to work) during a call (microphone is on). This will cause the app to give an alert that someone may be spying on you. While this alert is normally hard to notice on regular calls to friends, if you need to use the dial pad during the call (like in the case of an automated voice response when you need to press some keys), this alert can turn out to be very annoying. Maybe the developers can come up with a smaller alert that doesn’t cover the entire screen. That aside, SpyWarn is a wonderful idea and very useful.

Developer’s response: SpyWarn is a stand-alone test. It should be run only when the phone isn’t engaged in other activities. Basic rule, run the test, don’t do anything else with your phone during that time. There is one exception to the rule. Say your not using your phone (watching TV, dining, etc.) and it is on the table next to you. You can run SpyWarn™ in the background… to detect spyware or baseband eavesdropping activation of the phone. If the banner pops up when you are not making a call, it is 100% assurance you are being spied upon, at that moment, live.

Solo Launcher Makes Your Phone Look More Appealing

Solo Launcher is one app that amazes many people because of the plenty of available features that are normally available for a premium on other launchers. This means that if you are looking to get it all while at the same time saving some money, then this is the app for you. It in a way sounds like having your cake and eating it. Let’s dig deep and try to see is this app is a fair bet.

Just like the name suggests, this app is a launcher. If you are new to android devices, or if you have not been doing a lot of app shopping in the past decade, a launcher seeks to make your phone look more appealing to you by modifying the default user interface that you get in your home screen, app drawer and sometimes even the messaging app gets a little tweaking. These apps empower android users because they are able to remove any element of their phone’s user interface that they may not like.

Now back to Solo Launcher. This launcher has been made to ensure that everybody with a supported android device gets access to a smooth and free solution to any display flaws that may come with their devices. It adds plenty of transition and scroll effects to otherwise plain tasks. With this app, users will be happy to show off cool effects on their phones.

Just like any other android app on the play store, you need to make sure that you have a supported android device before you can try and install Solo Launcher. Unfortunately, users who are running versions of android below Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) will not be able to use Solo Launcher.

Once you have verified that your phone is supported, you can go ahead and install. Installation is plain and simple just like you would do on any other android app on the Google Play Store. After installation, the next step is setting this app as the default launcher to ensure that you don’t get a pop-up every time you tap your home button. From there, what’s left is only sitting back and enjoying the many amazing effects!

The most impressive thing about this app is the emphasis placed on the privacy. The developers even went a step further to explain all the permissions that you give the app. When compared to many other android launchers available on the market, we can confidently conclude that the developers of Solo Launcher did their homework. In addition to the fact that the launcher is free, users will also get to enjoy an ad-free experience on this app. This way, you’ll not see any distractions in form of the annoying pop-up ads that are there on most free apps.

The other unique thing is the customization. Solo Launcher goes a long way in ensuring that you have a wide range of options to choose from. From smart widgets all the way to hundreds (possibly thousands) of free themes and wallpapers, you can be sure that it will be a long time before you look for something “fresh”. It’s also very easy to use and unlike many other launchers, it has no problem integrating with Google Services, something that’s hard to live without in android devices.

The only con that we were able to pinpoint is that it’s not possible to set this launcher to be the default launcher in a number of phones. That aside, it’s a gem!

Ocean Hunt Offers a Lot of Fun and Challenge

With so many hunting games and apps out there today, they are all in danger of looking the same. With Ocean Hunt, however, Won-O-Soft has come up with a game that, while using a tried-and-tested game concept, promises to still offer a lot of fun and challenge for anyone who plays it. Players are given a limited amount of time to catch as many fish as they can by using a spear (to actually catch the fish) and a reel (to bring it in and accumulate points).

Using a spear, players will catch as many of the swimming fish as they can. All the fish that are caught must be reeled in out of the water to earn the points. It is simple enough: the more fish you catch, the higher your points will be. Ocean Hunt features a colorful underwater environment, with 28 different fish types and accompanied by perky tunes. To add to the level of difficulty, various flotsam and trash will also be floating around, making it more of a challenge to spear the fish. The player must avoid these pieces trash while playing.

Once you tap on the START tab, fish will start swimming in both directions across your screen. You should use your finger to swipe on the screen to adjust the aim or direction of the spear, which is located in the center top of the screen. Tapping on any part of the screen will release the spear, hitting on the targeted fish.

To reel in the caught fish, you must quickly turn on the Turn Reel System that will appear on the right side of the screen. Doing it quickly will ensure that the fish does not get away, and that you will earn points in as short a time as possible, so you can proceed to catch more fish. There is an online leaderboard for this app, which will motivate players to catch as many fish as they can and score high.

When it comes to being unique, some players would say that Ocean Hunt is anything but. After all, the game concept is already something that has been done many times over in the past. What makes this game unique, however, is the level of difficulty it poses. It is easy to learn, and it is definitely easy to play. However, mastering it is another matter entirely. Timing and speed are going to be very important and that is what makes this arcade game very addictive.

This fast-paced game’s gameplay can prove to be quite monotonous for those who are looking for more “action” in their mobile games. While it is true that it is challenging, it would have been better if more obstacles are included, just to up the ante. Those who are looking for a challenging mobile game will find it in Ocean Hunt. It can provide hours of fun and enjoyment, despite its simplicity and the risk of becoming tedious or monotonous after a while. The colorful interface, coupled with the catchy and infectious sounds and tunes, also adds an element of fun to the whole experience.

Exercise Your Logical Process with Motivation

With so many brain and puzzle games coming out today, you’d think you’ve seen them all. Then Oasis Studios came up with Motivation. By all accounts, it makes use of a formula that is no longer anything new: navigating a ball through a grid-based environment until it reaches an exit, so you can move on to the next level. This addictive game requires a lot of planning and definitely a lot of strategizing.

Motivation operates in an environment of grids that vary from level to level, becoming more challenging as you level up. You have “Roland”, a ball that you must lead across the grid towards the exit by rolling it. Sounds simple? Not quite. You see, moving Roland through the board can only be done by using arrows, each of them with only one direction. It will be up to you to lay out these arrows throughout the grid so Roland can move towards the exit. There are a total of 140 levels, so you’re looking at 140 grid designs to work the ball through.

Playing Motivation is done by tapping on the screen of your mobile device. You have a combination of 8 45-degree-angle arrows that you have to lay out strategically on the grid, with the intention of using them to roll Roland along towards the exit. But there’s a catch. You cannot expect to be able to use all 8 arrows to switch the ball’s direction. You see, arrows pointing on the area behind Roland, or where it is headed, won’t do a thing for Roland. This means that you can only use 4 types of arrows to switch directions.

As you level up, you will be collecting Stars. There are also Achievements that you can stock up on and use in future levels, such as “Switch ‘Em Up” and “Disposable”, among others.

Everything about Motivation is simple – from the interface and the concept. There are no flashy effects to distract users from the true essence of the game, which is the logic-and-puzzle gameplay itself. Many users are greatly impressed at the texture of the game despite its straightforward design. What makes this game truly addicting, however, is how the challenge or difficulty of the puzzle is increasing as you rise up through the levels. And there are a total of 140 levels to go through, so you’ll be motivated to complete them all (no pun intended).

Even the Sound and Music options are presented in a no-nonsense manner. That isn’t to say, however, that it is visually plain and boring. You can even choose the appearance of Roland at the beginning of the game, employing different color choices to reflect your personality.

As mentioned earlier, Motivation boasts a simple design, so if you are looking for bursts of color and lively animations, this is not the game for you. Some people may find it visually unappealing because of the simplicity of its overall look.

Addicting and fun, Motivation is sure a great way to exercise your logical processes and have a rollicking good time while you’re at it. If you enjoy solving puzzles mixed in with a simple yet very challenging game play, then Motivation is definitely right up your alley.
