Kukun – Renovate and Remodel with the Right ROI

Folks are staying in their homes longer, and when that happens you know there will be things to fix and upgrade. The dilemma that strikes is in deciding whether or not the cost is worth it. If it only matters to you because you want it and don’t care about return on investment, then the issue is moot. If you are deciding on a remodeling project that is more want than need, then it’s always nice to know if the investment will bring you value down the road in terms of selling price.

You could hire someone to help you make that decision, but what if there was an app for that. Download Kukun: Home Remodel Costs & ROI and find out how informative and fun the app can be.

You can use it to prioritize and makes decisions on which projects to pursue and which to put aside. You can find professionals to help you execute on the projects, and make the right decisions that fit your budget, style and more.

The download is easy and free. You simply have to register using an email address. From there you can set up your property information. At first, you’d wonder why this app would not pertain to just your home, but imagine if you are real estate agent or if you own several rental properties. You can set up several property profiles and gain insights into each separately.

When entering data for a property, you add information about number bedrooms, number of bathrooms, living floor space, the number of levels, property size, whether or not there’s a pool or jacuzzi. This information gives you a rough estimate of the value of the property. This will be used later, of course, once you start entering data on the potential renovations and remodeling projects you have in mind.

Kukun

From there you can add details on each room, such as dimensions, ceiling height and number of windows. Once you have details of your property in place, Kukun has everything it needs to give you estimates on any project you throw its way.

Basic functions of the app include:

  • Estimate – get an idea of what a project could cost based on zip code
  • Find A Pro – research professionals and contractors in specific areas
  • My Projects – what you want to have done, with details on the changes you desire
  • Request a Quote – soon to come!

 

To start, let’s say you want to remodel a bathroom. You have what is currently there. Now you go in and select that you will be starting a remodel project. Kukun will present a list of tasks that could be a possibility. You simply walk through the list and pick and choose what you will be doing. Details on flooring and such can also be entered. You also rate, “good, better, or best” the level of upgrade that you want on each item. After entering a zip code, Kukun will go out and estimate the bids you may receive based on rates in your area.

The app itself asks many of the questions that contractors would ask when providing a quote. So, you know that you are getting a pretty close estimate from Kukun, which allows you to make smarter decisions on projects you want to pursue.

I found most of the app to be extremely easy to use and helpful. What I would love to see is the option to add specific changes that I’d like to make on projects, rather than have them be a built in list of options you select/deselect.

Until then, I plan on entering lots of potential projects and look forward to the Request a Quote feature so I can get my home back on track.

World of Guns – A Unique Combination of Firearms Education and Entertainment

Different by nature but informative all the same, World of Guns educates and entertains firearm aficionados in an easy to use app. Now, I have never heard of many app that do this; most apps are games that have you using various forms of firearms to partake in epic battles or defeat invaders from another space. World of Guns is for folks who want to get to know their firearms better and can tinker around with them in a virtual space.

To start, the app provides a massively expansive offering of guns, providing vivid graphics of structure and videos to that display the gun in whole and in parts. The disassembly is most impressive. You click on the gun of your choice and it brings it up. You can do cutaways to choose parts and zoom in on them. This part of the app is widely used as a skill builder so you get to know guns well, inside out. So well that you will be able to disassemble and then reassemble.

From here you can load and unload the guns, add accessories, and view in different modes. I found the X-ray mode to be very fascinating, revealing the inner workings of the various areas of the gun. You can even view the video in super slow motion and see how the pieces move and adjust and come together upon any action you take.

World of Guns game

World of Guns houses a range of guns from all eras. There are very historic ones and modern-day firearms. Here’s a sampling:

  • Colt SAAs
  • Garands
  • Lee-Enfields
  • Glocks
  • P90s
  • M4s
  • Tavors
  • M134

That’s the inspection/education side of the app. Then there’s the fun side. You can actually visit up to ten different shooting ranges and use those guns. Each range has its own level of challenge and goal to attain. In addition to the shooting ranges, there are games, quizzes and puzzles. If you so choose, you can sign up to play in competitive mode and pit your skills against others.

As you advance, you unlock access to more guns and accessories. Each level requires completion of a basic set of tasks: firing on empty, changing grip, loading, and more. If you achieve Power Player status, you unlock all items. This is a refreshing change to not have to spend on an in-app purchase.

The one thing I would like to see in the app is a better rendering of the side bar menu items they currently show in a white rectangle, which covers up quite a bit of the display. Maybe having them as non-opaque overlay of some sort or shrinking the display could resolve this.

Outside of this, World of Guns is a unique combination of training/education tool and entertainment vehicle. I can see many uses for it to help anyone interested in firearms to fully understand one before handling one.

Adueducts – Constructive Minds Find Fun in Aqueduct Building Puzzle Game

Love to construct and solve puzzles at the same time? Then have I got a game for you. Aqueducts is the name and it will keep you entertained for hours on end. The challenge is to place yourself back in ancient times, when the engineering feats of the mighty Romans reigned and sourced live-giving waters to many.

The game starts simple and is not hard to catch on. When you first download the app, you will b taken straight to a puzzle. It will show a waterway that has not been completed. There will be multiple pieces of aqueduct scattered in such a way that when you tap on one, it will rotate one way or the other. You need to keep tapping until it connects to the aqueduct piece just before it, so that the water can flow.

There is no swiping of any kind. Simply taps. The first level has just one game. Once you complete that, the app shows you the map of the levels. Tap on the next one to play. You essentially will be building a full system that weaves its way through a mountain range and into valley that surround it.

On the bottom of the map screen, there will also be icons for syncing with the Cloud, sound settings and leaving a comment on the App Store.

Aqueducts app

So, one word of caution, because I fumbled through this when I started Level 2. The pieces of aqueduct only rotate clockwise, so choose wisely when you tap on one. You want to make sure those pieces will be available to connect to the piece that is upstream. You also only have so many moves per game; choose wisely.

As I was making my choices to rotate and connect the duct pieces, I realized I needed to slow down and think about what would happen, before I let it happen. This game provides a skillfully designed exercise in forward thinking strategic planning. I found myself messing up quite a bit, until I learned to slow down and let my moves be the limiting factor, not time. My advice to you is to take it easy and make your move.

The only thing that I would say is lacking is the inability to undo a move. You can redo a game, but you can’t undo any rotations, which would be nice.

Other than that, Aqueducts is genuinely entertaining and thought provoking. I have not come across something like this before and it provides a more stimulating way to keep minds entertained.

Biorhythm365 – Take Steps Everyday to Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses

Imagine if you could predict and plan what days would be ideal to make that product pitch or ask for a raise? You don’t have to be a psychic or know one to have such insights. There is a theory called biorhythm that lets you map out your life on a day to day basis, based on your birthday, so that you know what days are good for certain activities, and which days are not.

Biorhythm365 is not a fad of any sort. Detailed in the doctrine created by Dr. Wilhelm Fliess, this theory behind cycles and emotions provides a mapping of high and low points for four areas: Physical, Emotional, Intellectual and Intuitive. The basic premise is that each of those emotions follows a cycle based on a different calculation which uses your birthday to calculate the number of days living. Using this, the calculation creates a wave that is graphed. This graph fluctuates between +100 and -100, which -100 being a low point and +100 being a high point.

If you are at a high for Physical, it’s a great time to try something new, take on a big project or add to your pile of things to do. If it’s at a low, it is wise to concede to moments of rest and relaxation and postpone strenuous activities. Going against biorhythms can lead to stressful situations.

Biorhythm365

In the area of Intellect, high points are the perfect time to pursue a new project or propose a new idea. Low points would be a good time to avoid such risky pursuits.

You kind of get the picture.

Now, when you graph all four emotions, you will see trends and times when all four converge to high points and low points. Those are times to take note of and be extra careful of.

I really like the app because it laid out the information graphically and in other modes, as well. If you wanted to focus on one emotion, you can select it and it will highlight the days you have good scores. It really is a neat way to see what your future days will be like and help you plan accordingly.

It is in no way meant to scare you about your future. And, if you are apprehensive about it, you can look backwards and maybe make note of times when you had a bad day just to see what your biorhythm was saying.

I would like to see a neater graphical display with the ability to tap on a day and zoom in on the day’s details. Maybe in a version coming on its way?

No one really knows what is going to happen for sure, but Biorhythm365 puts some fun into understanding your moods and maybe they are certainly shaped by something greater than us.

BiorhythmΩ – Track Internal Trends to Take Steps Towards Balance

We all wish we could change our fates or control our destinies. Well, what if I told you there is a way to know ahead of time when you may want to pass up a socially taxing encounter or postpone an intense project for later, just to avoid a stressful situation and any ensuing effects it would have on your happiness?

BiorhythmΩ is the answer. You may have heard of it. It links loosely with the “stars” and when you were born; all that good stuff. But the theory behind biorhythms is not new. Summarized in papers by two German intellectuals, biorhythms provides foresight into your strengths and weaknesses by predicting when you will have good days and when you will have bad days.

Your biorhythm is based on the day you were born. From there, your biorhythm tracks four rhythms based on your birthday and the number of days you have been alive, looking at today’s date. This creates waves on a graph that let you visually see when you have high points and low points for each rhythm.

Biorhythm app

The four rhythms are:

  • Physical – related to physical fitness, this rhythm tracks when you will days full of energy and days when it would be best to slow down and take a break.
  • Emotional – simply put, this is how well you will react to your surroundings and events. If you are at a low point, it is highly advised that you avoid stressful situations that my tax your emotions.
  • Intellectual – your intellect is usually constant, but the reason for mapping it is to know when your high points may collide with the other three being low. Your intellect at those times may be affected and diluted temporarily. On the flip side, if you see a time in your cycle when the intellect coincides with high points for two other rhythms, it may be the perfect time to pitch that new idea at work or home.
  • Intuitive – refers to the ability to judge the feelings of others and how your actions or actions of others may affect them and the situation around them. If this is at a high point and the other rhythms are low, you may not want to take stab at assuming that someone is upset or unhappy and then try to help them. You may be wrong.

For all four rhythms, they are scored from -100 to 100. When any rhythm is at 0, this is a dangerous time. At times when several rhythms are converging at 0 or are all at a low point, it’s a good idea to listen to your inner voice and keep calm and rested.

The app graphs out all four rhythms so you can see when each one is doing well and when each is declining to a low point. It is helpful to note when more than one is declining, because this helps you plan accordingly.

Another great feature is the ability to view your standing by each rhythm. You can see data for just the physical, intellectual, intuitive and emotional – one at a time.

BiorhythmΩ may be sketchy to some, but is certainly worth looking into if you want to align the stars in your favor. Timing is everything!

Sensational Swinging with SWINGER

Calling all casual gamers! This is an app that won’t demand any of your precious time, but will fill up your free time with delightful tapping.

Pick up this tap game if you are a fan of simple rules and pure fun. The first thing one would love about this game is the rapid start and restart feature. It begins with reading a three step tutorial and pressing start. After tapping and dying, you restart and repeat. No signing up, no tangled tutorial- just start and restart.

The objective of the game is to garner these blue spheres with a swinger, this will allow you to gain score. Collecting these blue sun-looking spheres is not as easy as it sounds. Your swinger cannot stay dormant, as it does a three-sixty around the blue circle it’s currently on, that circle will eventually turn red and begin to die. To avoid dying with it, you need to tap on green rings which will in turn move your swinger. Tap to jump from green ring to green ring so that you can hunt for blue spheres.

Challenges are met when you tap from a ring that decreases speed and the length of your swinger, to a ring that increases the speed and length of your swinger. But, there are no complex mechanics in this game, so after a few tries it’s plain sailing.

SWINGER screenshot

In the game you do receive the single most important piece of advice- “Only attach to rings that are close to you!” Attaching the swinger to rings that are far away from you only creates panic, as your swinger will extend, the speed will increase, and when this happens it is easier to touch the end of the screen. Touching the edge of the screen will put an end to your swinging.

Features:

The user interface is easily understood and user-friendly. Anyone who downloads the app should be able to get into it immediately. This is what makes SWINGER so enjoyable, it is an instant stress reliever and entertaining distraction. If you are looking to train your reflexes and sharpen your mind, this is a great way to do it. From the menu, you can easily access the one page tutorial, share the game with friends, and control the game sounds. When it comes to the graphics, they are clear and colorful. The “spacey” game sounds encourage you try and try again.

If your friends don’t join you, have fun trying to beat your own score! As developers say, it’s easy to learn and hard to master, but you will definitely have copious amounts of fun along the way.

Castle Breakout – Escape or Be Doomed

What makes “escape the room” games so addictive? Castle Breakout – Escape! is an example of such a game and it holds the answer for us.

The game by Cloudburst Team, is for those who seek a little medieval adventure while they solve their puzzles.

A security master named Rex, is trapped in a castle around the 11th to 14th century. One must enter each room and find their way out by solving puzzles and finding clues. The clues are often right in front of you, hiding on the walls and in the fruit bowls- keep your eyes peeled!

You venture into an old pantry, alchemy room, and the king’s quarters. Each room is charming, elegant and some are a little… dusty.
Just as if you you were trapped in real life, you have to sort of “feel around” the rooms for clues; you do this by tapping on items and obstacles. You will know when you’re on the right track because tapping on suspicious items will automatically zoom you in on them.
Even if items seem dull and pointless, keep on tapping around them and the area they are in- you never know what might be hiding in the corners. The items you collect go in an inventory on the right hand side of your screen.

For example, in the alchemy room there are draw knobs that are missing, maps to be found, and potions to be made. All of this is waiting for you to put together.

Castle Breakout

Once all the clues are found and all the pieces are in place, the door will finally open.

If you fail to interact with the room and puzzles, you must prepare to suffer a lonely fate. There are no shortcuts, only one door reveals the way out, and when you do escape a room, be prepared for the next one! Golden Gauntlets Castle Escape

Features

The graphics will take one by surprise, they are absolutely beautiful. In one room, you can tap on a window that will zoom in on the kingdom outside, it’s breathtaking.
The in-game sounds are realistic, they add to the mystique of the rooms.
In the menu, you can control the sounds, share the game, and find a short tutorial.
After getting the hang of moving Rex around, you will be disappointed with only ten rooms- you will definitely want more!
Each room is different and alluring in it’s own way.
Every environmental puzzle is unique- one puzzle could involve mathematics and another could test your memory.
Not all the best things in life are free, so it could be frustrating to see that the last three rooms will cost you three dollars. But, at the end of it all, there is a free dragon ride that awaits you!

These escape games tend to be addictive because they are challenging and make one scratch their heads a bit. You just naturally want to find your way out. After all, who wants to be trapped in a medieval castle forever? This app is available on iOS and Android.
