This app is like a Where’s Waldo book put into a jungle setting. You compete against three other teams to find hidden items, like marbles, lizards and cheese, that are superimposed on images of temples, trees and tombs. (You never actually see them competing, but after you finish each level you can see what place you’re in – though there is a noticeable lack of a numeric score.) When you spy one of the things on the list the app provides, simply touch it with your fingertip and it disappears and is checked off. You also get a delightful tone to tell you that you did a good job.
However, touch something you’re not supposed to and you get a negative buzz. Plus, the other teams will start to catch up. You have to be extra careful because the intricate images are hard to search through on the small screen and there are lots of extra hidden items in the picture as well. Turning the phone so they appear in landscape view will make your life a lot easier. Then you can scroll up and down with your finger to see the entire image.
Because this game has few effects besides the background music of nature sounds and a lot of times you have to search through the same picture more than once, it was not enough to keep my interest for very long. And I really would have liked some points so I could compete against my friends. But if you’re really into visual puzzles you will no doubt find it very enjoyable.
Camera bag is an app that lets you apply several different filters to the pictures you take with your iPhone’s camera. It’s like carrying around a bag of lenses without the neck, back and shoulder pain.
There are seven filter options to choose from. I will go over each one.
Helga makes your picture look like it’s an old movie still, blurring the edges and brightening the center of the shot, while Cinema crops your photo into a widescreen format for a more modern look.
Lolo again goes old-school, increasing the image’s contrast and making it grainy, like an old Polaroid, complete with the bright white, square-shaped frame. Ansel makes your photo black and white and gives it a white border, perfect for those dreamy nature shots.
Next there are the year applications, named for the era they represent. 1962 ratchets down the contrast and the brightness of the photo, similar to an image in the newspaper, while 1974 takes on more of a sepia tone, giving your pic a retro look.
Lastly, there is Infrared. It makes your image look like it could have been taken with a heat-seeking lens.
You don’t have to choose between the options. You can use view all of them on the same photo simply by moving your finger from side to side on the screen to see each format. Choose one or more to save or delete them all if you wish. If you’re usually proud of your work, you can set up autosave to keep all your images automatically.
I really enjoyed using this application, as did my friend who is a PhotoShop whiz. It’s great for any photography buff, no matter what his or her skill level.
This app is a good substitute for the temporary escape that comes with that weekend fishing trip. You choose your location from many different areas in Europe, as well as less exotic locations like Pennsylvania and Oklahoma, and you’re greeted with a picturesque scene and sounds of nature in the background.
Grab your iPhone, hold it horizontally and make a forward motion with your wrist to cast your line. Then wait until your phone vibrates to tell you you’ve got a nibble. Jerk the phone to pull back on your rod and a lever will appear on your screen. You must move it in a circular motion to reel in your catch using the touch screen function. The directions will tell you to reel fast or reel slowly. Follow them exactly or it will slip away. Reel successfully and you get an image of your fish, complete with size and type, to put in your virtual bucket.
My favorite part was the casting since it has a realistic sound that makes it seem like you could really be at the lake. And the arc and speed of your arm will determine how far your line goes out. Reeling in is somewhat difficult though, especially if you have a big fish at the end of your line. I spent five minutes working on one of my catches before finally letting it escape due to arm fatigue. It is also hard to do if you have big fingers, since the lever is only about half an inch long.
Though I finished my trip with only a sunfish weighing less than a pound in my bucket (you are allowed to throw back a puny catch such as this one), I thought this program was a good simulator and worth giving a try.
Finally the application the iPhone was built for … iBeer. While not the most involving application on the iPhone, it is definitely one of the most fun – at least for the first few times you try it. There is something to be said for the fact that, no matter where you are or what time it is, you can pour yourself a frosty brew and drink it down to the last drop.
Just push the red button and it fills up your mug, which just happens to be shaped like a phone. Your drink comes complete with realistic bubbling sounds and a delicious head of foam. Tilt your phone to chug it down. Make sure you empty out the glass by making your phone completely horizontal. Do this and you will be rewarded with a satisfying belch. Then the red button reappears. Time to pour yourself another glass of the amber.
Without a doubt, this app is hilarious to use, and unlike real beer, there is no drinking age. The problem is, once you’ve shown it to all your friends there is not much else you can do with it. Also, I found the huge round button a little unrelated to the program, along with the “ding” sound when you push it. It’s not a sound you normally hear when popping open a beer bottle.
This is a good program to surprise and entertain your friends and is a great conversation piece for bartenders, but the price seems a little high for just a quick diversion.
Overall I would highly recommend this Entertainment iPhone App for adults 18 years and older.

Version 4 includes improvements to Wifi Sync, and other fixed bugs. Transfer recordings over wifi (great for large files), Improved Emailing of larger files and other small improvements.
I cant say enough for the improvements it make this App that much cooler. I use this App a lot for work to remember supplies to pick up, work deadlines and so fourth. But this past weekend my family and myself decided to visit Gettysburg, PA for the famous ghost tours, while on the tours I used my iPhone Recorder App as a EVP device trying to capture ghost talking.
This is a pretty neat iPhone App and can really come in handy in a lot of situations for instance going to visit a physic or card reader you can record what they tell to reflect on later, Suppose you think of something important while driving it is harder to write than it is to hit two buttons and start speaking.
The Staff of iTune App reviews finds this App very cool, and you can’t go wrong spending a buck here. This App is very useful and will come in handy I use mine regularly and Highly recommend it to all my readers. A+ On This App!
