Bubble Trouble Shooter

Bubble Trouble Shooter – iPhone App Review

Today we’re taking a look at an iPhone app called Bubble Trouble Shooter. It’s an iPhone game that combines characteristics of Peggle and Candy Crush. Now I was never a huge fan of Candy Crush, but I did enjoy Peggle every now and then.

In Bubble Trouble Shooter, you have to match (at least) 3 bubbles in a row to get them to pop. Once they pop, they clear. Once you clear all of the colored bubbles in each level, you can move on to the next level. The levels get very difficult very quickly.

There are other characters that you can unlock within the game. If you’re impatient, you can purchase them with real money. Otherwise, you can unlock them by hitting certain levels within the game. For example, at level 40, you unlock Jack, the monkey character. I’m still working to unlock him.

There are over 800 levels. That’s a lot of levels! And new levels every month. For example right now there are special Valentines levels that you can play. There are also boss levels that you can play as well where you save different animals.

The core gameplay revolves around matching the 3 colored bubbles, but on top of this there’s a life-system similar to Candy Crush. You get 5 hearts and when you lose a level, you lose a heart. When you’re out you have to wait until they refill which takes a little bit of time.

If you’re a fan of connect-3 type games, you will really enjoy this one. Personally, I think there are too many match 3/connect 3 games on the AppStore. This one though, was pretty fun to play and review. And since it’s free, there’s not really any reason not to download it and give it a try. While Bubble Trouble Shooter may not be the first to the connect 3 genre, it’s one of the best ones I’ve played.

Scribo App Review

Scribo iPhone App Review

Today we’re taking a look at Light Pillar Software’s app, Scribo. It’s a word game that pits you head to head against either a friend or a stranger and you have 19 letters to make as many words as you can within 48 seconds. The premise of the game is simple, but mastering it takes a lot of skill and vocabulary prowess.

Every Sunday, you will have a chance to compete in Scribo Sunday. This will give you 12 second to make the best word you can.

Overall, the app is a lot of fun, and I encourage you to check it out if you’re in to word games. Below is our full, in-depth video app review.

Warfare 2D

Warfare 2D iPhone App Review/Gameplay Overview

Warfare 2D is probably one of the best games I’ve ever played. It used to be a game called Wifi Warfare, but has now come back onto the App Store as Warfare 2D. I remember playing Wifi Warfare probably 4-6 years ago (before our app reviewing channel even started, I think). It was so fun. Now it’s back, so we’re sharing it with you all! Check it out, but first check out our video below!

Document Writer

Document Writer – Word Processor and Reader for Microsoft Office iPhone App Review

If you’re looking for a document editor, you may want to check out Document Writer by Mindspeak Software. Document Writer is a full office suite for the iPhone and iPad (it is universal) and it has many features that you may be wanting from an “on-the-go” word processor. Here is a small list of a few of the things it can do: Create and edit Rich Text documents, create and edit spreadsheets, you can doodle sketches, convert Microsoft Office documents to PDF, annotate PDFs, sign PDFs, scan documents, there’s a file manager, voice recorder, and more. Also, you can wirelessly transfer files to or from your Mac or PC.

Document Writer

You can use all of the features you’d expect in a document editor, like Bold, Underline, Italics, and Strikeout. You can also change the color of the text and the font type. Of course, this app wouldn’t be complete if you couldn’t add spreadsheets that are editable elsewhere, but it does have this. You can create a spreadsheet within the app, then email it to your Mac or PC using Excel, and easily pick up where you left off.

Document Writer

This app is probably best if you have an iPad (due to larger screen), but will work just fine on an iPhone. We tested it on our iPhone 6 and didn’t have any huge issues with the usability of the application.

Finally, you can share your work when you’re finished using a few different services, whether they’re wireless or wired.

There is a lot to like with this app. You can view Word and Excel files from Office 2007, 2008, and 2010. One of the awesome features this app has is the ability to open and edit files from basically any 3rd party app that supports the “Open In” feature.
