Tiny Tower App Review

This review is the fast growing game titled "Tiny Tower". This game is located in the Apple App Store as well as the Android Market. I never heard of this game until someone told me to download it. They showed me the game on their phone and it looked alright. After a couple days, I downloaded it to try it out. I have to say, I am glad I downloaded it. I will give you the full lowdown right here on "Tiny Tower".

Mobile Mouse Server and Lite App Review

Mobile Mouse Server for computer

Mobile Mouse Lite for mobile device

During my freetime, I always like searching around the Apple App Store. It could either be on my MacBook Pro, iPhone, or iPad. I can open the store and search for at least an hour. While searching in the Mac App Store, I stumbled across one app that was under the "Utilities" category. Its icon is a simple mouse with a few symbols around it. The app was called, "Mobile Mouse Server" and the one for your mobile device is called "Mobile Mouse Lite (Remote/Trackpad)". I love the trackpad on the MacBook Pro, but I was thinking about buying a mouse during the end of 2011. It was just a phase as I didn't end up buying one. There are two main reasons why I didn't buy one. The first one: I really do not use my MacBook Pro on a hard surface as it is usually on my lap. The second reason is simple.....Apple mouses are quite expensive. While my journey to getting a mouse was over, I came across this app. I read through the description and realized that it is pretty intriguing, not to mention, revolutionary. One problem about this app is that you need to download it on your computer and on your mobile device. Do not worry, it is free. I downloaded it on my computer and on my iPhone and I quickly went to "work". After trying to figure out how to use it, I came use to it. I used this app quite a few times and I am ready to give my review!

Temple Run App Review

One of my friends told me about this app to get. This app is a game in the App Store for the iPhone and iPad. She told me the concept of the game but I never heard about it before. She was talking about Temple Run! I downloaded this app on my iPhone, which then went on my iPad thanks to iCloud! I played this game, as you probably guessed, so let me begin the break down.

Download and size

I downloaded this app on my iPhone while being on 3G, so it did take a minute or two to fully download the 19.5 MB app. Do not worry, the size, 19.5 MB, is the same for the iPad. After it was finished, I opened the app.

The Graphics

The graphics of Temple Run is not the greatest, but it's not the worst either. While the game is only 19 and a half MB, I did not expect anything spectacular. With what the game is all about, the graphics aren't important. I do got to say, you need to have a good eye or a bright scene without any interference because it is hard to see some of the obstacles. If you don't see it, you will lose, no doubt.

The Gameplay

The beginning goes quick, so starting the game will take no time at all. You click play and the game begins. When you first play, the game does a tutorial on all the moves you can do. They are simple moves. You swipe left or right to turn left or right. You then swipe up to jump or swipe down toward you to slide. You then move your device up or down on its side, it directs the person in the game. After the little tutorial, you are on your own with the gameplay. I played it and got quite far. This is me, so I don't know for sure but I honestly think it does, but the person you are playing goes faster when you keep playing. It would make sense as it would make the game more difficult. While the obstacles are repetitive, they do not get old as the game switches between them so you never know what is going to happen next.

Grab it or Stab it

Temple Run is a pretty addicting game once you get use to it. I got the game on my iPhone and iPad and I played the game on each device. While some may disagree and it may be quite shocking, I prefer to play this game on the iPhone. It is a smaller screen, but you can control the person better, BUT it is harder to see. If you have both devices, I recommend to put this app on both and see which one you like better. The best part of the whole thing is Free! Grab this app and try it today!
