I love options. With access to the App Store with over 375,000 apps available, you’ll have plenty of them — and the category of news readers is no exception. The fairly new on the scene app, Thirst, claims to be “a personalized newspaper that really matters to you.” But I’ve heard similar promises from other apps and been disappointed.

My biggest question going into this review was, “Is this news reader really going to be that different in order to make it stand out?” So, in a cluttered category how does Thirst stack up? Read on to find out.

It’s that time of year. When we say goodbye to four years of hard work and newfound friends and forge ahead to “make something of ourselves.” But how can you be expected to make it in the “real world” without a solid collection of apps for this new season of life?

Ideas. They make the world go round. The famous American architect and author, Frank Lloyd Wright, called ideas “salvation by imagination”, and a good idea can take you far by helping you get that promotion, make more money, or inspire others. The new app Gini is about raising the quality of ideas. According to the description it provides a methodology that provokes deeper thinking and creative engagement using a unique interface that maps the strengths and weaknesses of an idea.

As someone who is always interested in coming up with new ideas I decided to give Gini a try to see if it could really live up to that promise. Would it really help me discover new and better ideas? I was intrigued by the concept of an interface that maps ideas. Read on to see what I thought after using Gini.

With the current state of the economy, I’ve been surveying the real estate market in my area to see if I can find a great bargain. The problem is as a first time home buyer I’ve come to find that the process is way more complicated than it should be. Trying to research and compare homes across numerous websites can be a total time killer, not to mention quite the chore. On top of that, I often found myself trying to memorize addresses of houses I saw on that market so I could look them up on the computer when I got home.

So, when I came across HomeSnap Real Estate and saw that it so casually declared, “Just snap a photo of any home, nationwide, to identify it and find out how much it’s worth,” I was intrigued. Part of me was skeptical at first, but there were enough good reviews to keep me interested (and it doesn’t hurt that it’s free).

Before we get into the nitty gritty of how it works and if it’s worth your time there’s one thing I should mention. HomeSnap is only currently available for users in the United States. If I’ve still got your attention, then read on to discover if this app is for you! (more…)

The Epic Knight from the well-known dungeon defense game, Tiny Heroes, is back in the new running game, One Epic Knight. The tables have turned and now the Epic Knight is the one conquering the dungeon. Whether you’ve played the first game or not, what could be more exciting than a dungeon filled with loot, potions, trinkets and green jello cube monsters? Other than real treasure chests filled with loot, I can’t think of too much.

As a fan of the popular Temple Run, when I found out One Epic Knight was free I had to take it for a spin. So, how does it compare to other games in the running genre? Read on to find out! (more…)

When I married a woman who is an incredible cook and loves to bake, I knew I had hit the jackpot. Unfortunately, what I didn’t realize is that also meant I was now obligated to watch hours of programming on the Food Network. In the last five years I’ve seen so much Paula Deen my arteries are clogged just from watching, and I’ve learned that you can make literally anything into a food competition with ingredients I’ve never even heard of (what exactly is “jaggery” anyway?).

Well, if you’re a foodie like my wife who loves watching the Food Network then you might interested in their new app, Food Network On the Road. The question now is does it live up to the promise of helping you find all the places where the stars eat when you’re on the road? Read on to find out. (more…)

Do you lie awake at night worrying you’ll miss the next episode of NCIS? Do you feel lost if your other friends know the latest news about The Big Bang Theory before you? Are you sick of constantly scrolling through hours of the programming grid just to find out when Breaking Bad will air a new episode?

Ok, so maybe I’m exaggerating a little, or maybe you really do need counseling to break your TV addiction. Either way, TV Guide Mobile is the app that brings the famous website to the iPad and scratches your television itch. Read on to learn all it has to offer.
