Fly Like an Eagle, Explore, and Experience Flight through Eaglivion VR

Virtual reality is the buzzword of the moment. Last year’s Christmas gift frenzy highlighted VR headsets that allowed just about anyone to experience something that was contained to devices found in museums or tech centers. Now, VR devices fit in the palm of your hand and fit like a glove over your eyes, transforming smartphones into experiences like no other.

Eaglivion VR is one of many apps that take full advantage of VR and make it easy for anyone to feel like they are soaring like an eagle across the skies and over mountaintops, looking for various items, allowing users to collect points.

The download is free and works well on both iPhone and iPad. The app itself works with the following types of VR devices:

  • Cardboard
  • Gear VR
  • VR Headset
  • VR Box

The developers highly recommend using Cardboard as your VR device for maximum enjoyment, but all devices listed are fully functional with Eaglivion VR.

Eaglivion VR is an adventure. As soon as you connect your device to the VR equipment, you will instantaneously transform your world into a place that is open, clean, and clear. You will feel like you are in the Colorado Rockies or atop a mountain range almost anywhere in the world, anywhere that is far away from people, noise, and pollution.

You become an eagle, and you fly around looking for items as the app requests them. These requests float amid the screen almost like a mist, easy to read, but blending well into the setting. These requests range from collecting a certain number of feathers or rocks, leaves or flowers.

The app also comes loaded with various types of actions and events, at random times:

  • Air Battles – engage in battle with other eagles to defend your space and gain access to areas for further exploration and collection
  • Races – fly as fast as you can to test your speed and agility against other eagles
  • Fish Hunting – as you fly over streams and rivers, see how many fish you can catch
  • Knock Downs – every so often, there will be items hanging from cliff sides or trees that you will be tasked with hitting and knocking down
  • Explorations – there are different worlds to discover within the app. Point your device over the different worlds and when the white dots lines over your destination, tap and go
  • Using Tools – pick up various implements and use them in various ways to collect points and create a more rich experience from your game

Everything about this app is very real and impressive. VR is fairly new to me and I love that the creator of Eaglivion VR has chosen a natural setting for his VR gaming app. What I would love to see in future updates is more exotic destinations so I can explore the world without leaving my living room.

Until then, my family members will have to work hard to pry the VR from my hands, because I plan on spending many hours in Eaglivion VR.

Banana Stand – A Fun Easy Game

You may have thought the days of playing games on your phone were over. We all remember trying to beat each other’s high scores, unlocking new levels and reaching the end of that game we played day after day. It may be safe to say that those days are back.

Banana Stand app

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.

Eighty-five people have also reviewed this game and can testify that it is a fun and loveable clicker game that can be slightly addicting. As an incremental clicker game, it could be easy to get bored but not this one—it has no pause button so the fun can go on for hours!

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!

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.

Battery Charger Alarm Saves Your Battery

Most apps today claim to have new features, settings and applications within the app. The battery charger alarm does not do this. Many apps have claimed to save your battery and notify you when your battery is low but they never quite do it correctly. I like this app because it is easy to use and worth the download—plus, it is free!

This app contains many unique features. Its main purpose is no notify you when your battery is too low so that you can charge it, and if you are not near a charger, it also has a battery saving setting to hold you over until you do get near a charger. It will also tell you when your phone has finished charging and you can unplug it. If you didn’t know, over charging your phone’s battery can kill the battery too soon, so with the alarm notification on this app, you will know when it is fully charged and then can unplug your phone. Instead of checking constantly whether or not your phone has fully charged, the alarm will tell you and then you can act accordingly.

This app has great settings too that are quite helpful. The app has many features as well. Just like you can choose a ring tone on your phone, you can change the alarm settings too. It has an alarm ringing frequency setting so that you can choose how often it rings, you can control the vibration settings as well. You can also change or control the silent mode settings if you want the alarm to be silent. This comes in handy if you are at work or in a quiet place. You can also control the night mode settings for when charging your phone while you are asleep. It also has a great do not disturb setting if you do not want to the alarm to go off for whatever reason.

Battery Charger Alarm

A common question with the app is how the night mode works. If you turn the night mode on to activate it, then the alert will not go off or ring between 11 PM and 8 AM. You can use the night mode to stop alarm and battery charging notifications so that your phone does not feel too crowded.

The downside I found with this app is the compatibility with all my devices. It is only available for Androids but when I tried putting it one of my older Android devices, it did not work as well. That should not be too big a problem because people these days have the newest devices available.

This app is also available in many languages including Malay, Dutch, Slovak, Bulgarian, Ukranian, Serbian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Nepali, Norwegian, Romanian, Swedish and Czech. So, this app is available for many and has little restrictions.

Many reviews left for this app say that it is highly efficient, good and helpful. I have fallen victim before to my phone glitching early because the battery died early. Battery Charger Alarm will definitely come in handy with me because I have a very busy day and when I plug my phone in, I do not plan to check on it so this alarm can help me. I am sure many busy working people feel the same way.

Hero Legends Keeps You Glued on Your Seats

If you like comic characters and want something very similar to lay your hands on when it comes to playing games, here is one offered by Fire-point interactive Inc. that will blow your mind away with its 2D characters and beautiful storyline as you progress through the game. It is the “Hero Legends” which is a role play game that will have players glued on to their seats for hours with its exciting stories and the accomplishments one needs to achieve in order to complete a story.

Hero Legends is game with smooth interesting graphics and the story lies along the lines of battle between the good and the bad. There are these two armies by the name “Order” and “Chaos” and they fight against each other for a totally different purpose. You sign in with your play store id and start playing the game instantly with no formal set up required.

Talking about the armies, the “Order” team is one that strives to restore order or peace in the world by attacking the evil doers, which is the “Chaos” team. The order team are descendants of the angels in contrast to the chaos team that are descendants of the devil.

During your first login and initial setups, you will be given the choice to choose either one of these two teams. You also get to choose a name that you wish to have for yourself as the hero or to choose one at random from the game’s database. You then move on to the expedition where you fight your battle against the opponent.

Hero Legends games app

There are a total of 8 stories with a particular number of levels for each story. When you gain victory over each level, you will be given the option depending on your mission, to either restore peace or increase chaos. You can also build your army by recruiting new warriors and can unlock important landmarks and buildings, for example, the observatory can be unlocked by completing level 13 and the council hall can be unlocked by completing level 10.

Spinning your floating city can also take you to other areas where you see what is around, meet new people, look for what to conquer, and collect food, gold coins, etc.

  • On completion of each level, you can look at stats of friends and enemies.
  • The requirement to complete certain number of levels in order to unlock something keeps the player hooked on and engaged, looking forward to the excitements in store.
  • Treasure chests appear while fighting the battle which are an added bonus that lead to various collections.
  • Completing each level also lets the player to build their army.
  • The quests are short thereby not putting the player through stressful difficult tasks that may require multiple attempts before completion.
  • Each story has hidden levels that can be unlocked by collecting or unlocking the stars.
  • There is a chat option that lets the player get in touch with world players on the main channel or have a private one to one chat through the “Whisper” channel.
  • The game has neat 2D graphics with beautiful comic characters.
  • The “Auto battle” option lets the battle take place automatically without any player input. However, I find it somewhat funny, as playing a game is all about the player using strategies to fight their enemies and not letting it happen automatically.

 

It would be nice to have more choices for the player to choose who to recruit and what training should be given depending on the wealth a player has gathered through the battle. More control on using the power and introduction of temporary or upgraded weapons with each level could be an added advantage for Hero Legends.

Track Your Income and Expenditure with Actfi

Who doesn’t like using simple, less complicated apps in these crazy days where finding time to have a relaxing cup of tea has become something eventful to wait for? Gone are those days when people wrote long lists of their incomes and expenditure or even kept typing up those figures on long excel spreadsheets with those formulae and other calculations to handle! And yeah, what about the reminder part? You need to get that in your head somehow?

No, here is a solution to all the frustrations that you have been going through all these days and Actfi, the simple and powerful app will take care of all these for you.

It has a very simple interface that even a novice can get their hands on immediately without any complication. Yes, it is very straightforward in the fact that you just answer a few questions that the app asks you and voila, you have it all set up and running. Actfi then takes care of everything after your initial input is complete! It is that simple.

Actfi as two major tabs that you will be looking into at all times: the income tab and the expenses tab.

First time users will be guided through a page where you are given a set of questions to enter your income details like, type of payment, for example your salary or employer name or job title or if it is retirement money, (name it whatever way suits you). You then input how often you receive this payment (one time, daily, weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, yearly because this can vary with individuals), then choose if the above amount fluctuates as this varies for hourly paid individuals, last time you were paid (input date), input the amount you got paid and choose whether to have notifications on / off and hit “Go.”

Actfi

This income now gets added to your Actfi profile. The next part is to add the expenses, as this is what needs to be kept under control and monitored right?

Ok, in order to do that, on the expenses page, describe the expense, input how often it is due, amount due, last time it was due, choose to turn notifications on / off and hit “Go.” That is it, you are good to start using this app. Your financial assistant is all set up and ready to be used.

You can add as many number of income and expenses from these individual pages by tapping the “Add” button on top and Actfi puts the next due date for you based on the last time it was due. You can choose to show past occurrences or not. Also this information can be edited anytime if ever anything changes.

An interesting fact about Actfi is, it not only shows you the income and expenses due, but when you tap on each type of income, it creates a graph in the form of a pie chart that clearly tells you graphically what your expenses and income are along with a little description of the data. This helps you compare side by side where your money goes and how it can be controlled. There is also a suggestion of how much or what percentage of your income can be saved and how.

Personally speaking, a total of the income and expenditure along with net savings could be calculated and shown with net figures carried over to a savings tab, thereby helping users know what is available.

myVEGAS is a slot machine game that works on both iPhones and iPads. Built to mimic the menagerie of Vegas and its multitude of games, it offers something that many other slot gaming apps do not – real life prizes that you can use, not just in-app winnings.

While the real prizes do not include money, they do include free trips to Vegas, complete with stays, dining and more, depending on what you have won.

As easy to use as most other gaming apps, myVEGAS makes the fun real by offering these prize trips, making the stakes worth winning and keeping you engrossed and excited. Winning in-app coins can get meaningless after some time, which is why MyVegas is a cut above the rest.

Partners in Vegas include The Bellagio, MGM Grand, Royal Caribbean, New York New York, Mirage, and more. You can win trips to get there, nights to stay for free, meals, and even tickets to see shows on the strip. You could not ask for more.

There are enough slots to keep you playing for hours on end. While how you play is nothing unique, the winnings are, because the more in-app credits you get, the closer to move towards real prizes. Slot play is just as it would be in any other slot machine game; you put up credits and press the button. The reels move and slowly come to a stop to reveal a pattern that may or may not reap you rewards.

myVEGAS Slots is for newbies and seasoned players alike. Anyone can extract a ton of fun from the many games that are offered; but of course, no kids allowed.

Games with higher payouts become available as you move up in credit count, but believe me when I say it won’t take long to get there. I would like for the game to make it a bit easier to get to that point without having to pay for credits, but I guess nothing comes for free.

Until then, I am going to enjoy my slot games and keep hoping for that big win because I could sure use a trip to Vegas right now! This game is also available on Android.

Become a Bastard Emperor on Gladiator Bastards

Gladiator Bastards as the name suggests, is an arcade game where you show your skills and fight against characters to pass through each level to become the Bastard Emperor. That’s when the game stops! This game has some really cool graphics and is developed so beautifully that you can sometimes get lost in it focussed on the achievements.

Gladiator Bastards is not that huge an app compared to some arcade games that come in huge sizes, but can be quickly downloaded if you have an internet connection with moderate speed and can be installed without any fuss.

As far as settings are concerned, you can choose to have the music and sound FX on or off, choose language to be either English or Chinese, your achievements can be viewed using the achievements button, set Everyplay recording on or off (setting it on will require app access to take photos and videos + record audio), reset game data if ever necessary (this process cannot be undone) and finally change Gamer ID and picture!

When you start the game, you are presented with a screen where you can see how many coins you have (initially you have 0 coins if this is your initial start), any achievements (for example, you have to prove yourself to be a skilled fighter when it comes to throwing projectiles to get the “Knives of the avenger” medal. When your enemies are afraid of your magnificent air attack techniques, you will be awarded the “Death from above.”) and the six characters available to choose from (only two are unlocked initially, others require coins to unlock).

Gladiator Bastards app

Tapping the screen opens the game area, where you have a joystick that controls your movement (left, right, jump and crouch) and three buttons labelled A, B and C that have skills with different strengths; A being the mildest and C being the strongest.

As you fight against your enemy, you use the weapons and skills that you have (each character possesses different weapons, power and skills) and fight the enemy. Using a combination of the joystick and power buttons lets you portray different skills to attack the opponent.

Progress bars or gauges for each fighter is displayed on top, with two colours; one that is red coloured for life or stamina and the yellow one for skills and survival. As the game progresses, the red bar keeps decreasing, showing that your stamina or life is decreasing and depending on the skills you portray while fighting, the yellow bar progresses. There are three parts on this gauge; I, II and III and as the bar progresses past these values, you get a special move for each.

Features of Gladiator Bastards:

  1. You are able to choose a character among six available, provided you have coins to unlock the four locked characters.
  2. You can record your game play and share them using Everyplay on the social media
  3. You can compare your score and skill levels with your friends on the leadership board and see how you rank amongst them.
  4. With each achievement, you are given a medal and these can be shared with your friends and others on social media.
  5. The achievements waiting to be accomplished on the list keeps you focussed on the game and helps you wisely make moves to attack the enemy

There are videos that come in between levels, showing up as giving you bonus rewards of gold coins if you watch them, but they look and feel like unwanted and unrelated videos with respect to the actual game.

Feed the Spider – Fun Time Feeding a Spider and Learning Trivia

Not all gaming app are created equal. If you are tired of the high intensity games and seek something simpler that entertains for hours, look no further. Feed the Spider will keep you coming back for more and you will never get enough.

With enhanced background sounds and backdrops that add to the adventure, it’s a game that excites gamers young and old. I usually don’t go for games that look trivial on the surface, but this game is nothing like that, at all!

So, who is the spider and how do you feed it? Your spider is a Black Widow, and she is very hungry. Spiders like to eat other insects, so your missing is to capture as many insects as you can to fill your spider’s belly. You simply tap and swipe them toward the spider’s mouth, and watch as it gobbles the insect up.

Another tactic you can use to capture more than one insect at a time is to make a set a trap, made of spider’s web, of course. Tap on the spider and lash out at the bug to ensnare it and bring it in, just as a real spider would. If you choose to use this tactic, be careful not to trap the spider itself, lest you make it trip over itself!

The game seems overtly simple on the surface, but it is far from that. You will find yourself hooked, line and sinker, once you start game play; and don’t worry about getting bored, because that will not happened.

As you move through screens, you will get an assortment of insects to nourish your spider: flies, beetles, mosquitoes, and bumblebees, to name a few. As they fly or waddle by, you have to think quick and act fast to tap it into Ms. Widow’s mouth, before it disappears.

Feed the Spider has over 1200 levels of challenging scenarios and games that gradually increase from the starting level onward. You also will get to play against three different types of forest backdrops, keeping the game new with every turn.

As you play, you will also get opportunities to collect daily bonuses, which help you survive games and move through levels. Bonus points are not the only bonus you get, you also can learn lots about spiders as you play. The game spits out spider trivia every so often, so you get a learning experience along with your entertainment! Not many games can claim that.

I loved the graphics and the cartoonish imagery, which enhance the fun of the game. If I could ask for any improvements, it would be to maybe add a few different types of games in addition to Spin the Spider. Just feeding the spider and playing the one game can get monotonous.

Outside of that, Feed the Spider is a treat for all. While it looks like it would only be fun for kids, nothing could be farther from the truth. I spent hours playing it and could not put it down – which made it very difficult for me to keep my kids off as well!
