Monopoly for iPad

Price:$4.99

Link: Monopoly


Monopoly has gone mobile! There have been many diverse reviews regarding this game. For us iPad 1&2 users, the recent update has left us with mixed feelings. The former size of this game was less than 100 megabytes. For the retina feature on the iPad 3 this game was updated and is now a whomping 256. Or so the description says. The actual size of this app is a gargantuan 936 megabytes(almost a gig), and the thing is…for us iPad 1&2 users there’s no real change. And Although the “updated” graphics aren’t really noticeable, a game like monopoly isn’t meant to have appealing graphics anyway. And your’e bombarded with ads on your first opening(common with EA games). And if a game takes up 1/16 of my iPad space, it isn’t worth having. The new image of the game has been optimized for the iPad 3 but like the insurance commercials say: “We know that new friends aren’t better than old friends.”

  • For iPad 3 users there’s an editable interface
  • 7 icons to choose from including : Battleship, Top hat, Iron, Race Car, Shoe, Thimble, Dog, and the new Prius
  • Monopoly for iPad has 5 different 3d environments
  • Monopoly for iPad has Tabletop mode so you wont have to pass your iPad around getting everyone’s grubby hands on it

Justin.tv for iPhone/IPad

Price: 4.99

Link:Justin.tv

Justin.tv is an application that allows users to watch or broadcast their favorite shows where thousands can view/join in. This app has a special place in my little black book. This app has saved millions of lives, by saving them from boredom. JTV has gone mobile. With JTV you can watch favorites such as south park, family guy, the office, dragon ball z, and hundreds more withought an annual fee. You may not be ale to watch tv directly on iOS devices(yet) but this may be the closest you can get.

  • JTV has hundreds of channels to choose from
  • Seeing as JTV for iPhone is the only functional JTV app for iPad the screen is a magnified which might cause loss in quality for some users
  • JTV is often updated as developers work hard to make this app better(unlike the iPad version)
  • JTV is handy, functional, and overall extraordinary

    Photon Flash Player Browser for iPad on the iTunes App Store

    Photon

    Price: 4.99

    Link: Photon

    Ok when you first get your iOS device you might notice one thing…there’s no flash! You might just jump to the first flash app you see on the app store. There’s one simple statement about this app that one could make:” DONT GET IT, IT’S NICE TO HAVE FLASH ON YOUR iDEVICE BUT THIS ONE IS CLUNKY, SLOW STREAMED AND OVERALL STUPID incapable of displaying the iPads(or iDevices) full potential.

    Now iSwifter or Rover would be the most suitable app for any iDevice. iSwifter is the same price as photon and you get a 7 day free trial. Plus the browser supports fullscreen as well as the video. Rover is made by the same people but is intended for students using the iPad for educational flash content(and it’s free). But it works good with some popular supported sites: 1channel, putlocker, and southpark studios. On a related note this is good for people that are just saying to themselves “How do I get putlocker or 1channel on my ipad”. On another related note I would like to say that it’s best to pull up the video link in safari and copy and paste the URL into photon or rover as pop ups might prevent you from watching them.

    *FUN ALERT*
    *FUN ALERT*
    *FUN ALERT*
    This game brings back so many memories. I play this game on my iPad nearly everyday. It’s just like capcom vs snk 2. The controls are a little clunky. But what it lacks in controls in more than makes up for in fun, and character variety. Classic favorites like morrigan, storm,gambit, spider man,Ryun, chunli and about 28 others! I would recommend this app to anyone…and get it!

  • This Game is fun and brings back allot of memories
  • Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Has a wide variety characters
  • Although mvc2 doesn’t come with a manual it’s easy to pick up after some practice
  • Mvc2 on ios has beautifully restored graphics and customizable controls

    SayHi Translate is the most easy, understandable, functional, precise translating app for ios devices. This app is useful for people in all foreign language classes who want to cheat on their homework, people that want to talk to their in laws, or people that just want to learn a foreign language. I would recommend this app to anyone. Like you I was hesitant about buying this app. But experience can be the best judge. I tested this app first hand on a school project and for the first time, I was not given a zero, I wasn’t warned that of I do it one more time I’d be kicked out. Instead I was the model student of the day as the teacher said things like “do what ******* did”, and “I just do it this way like ******* did”.

  • SayHi translate allows users to translate their voice (or text)into a another language
  • SayHi translate has a wide variety of language selections to choose from(over 30>;;;;
  • SayHi translate is easy to understand and easy to to use the only con is the inability to quickly switch languages

    Rover

    Price: Free

    Link:Rover

    This app is unique because it gives a special flash browsing experiencing for iOS devices. This is technically supposed to to be used as a education app for students using the iPad for flash content. It works well with 1channel and putlocker, is good for viewing flash videos ( if the site is supported)and supports full screen mode(video and browser). I recommend you have the direct link for the site you want to view(pop ups might prevent you from watching it)
