word lens

Living in or traveling to a country which speaks Spanish or French and you don't?  Look no further than Word Lens.  While there are numerous apps that will provide word by word or sentence by sentence translation, none will do so in real-time using your iPhone or iPad's camera.  Word Lens does just that.  In real time, simply point your camera at a text of Spanish or French (depending on what pack you have) and the app will quickly translate the language in print to English (or vice-versa).  Read on for more on this app. … [Read more...]

Flight Control Rocket Review for iPhone and iPad


Flight Control Rocket is among the first group of games with support for the New iPad's Retina display.  I expect this category to expand - fast.  Adding on to the idea of the original Flight Control Game, this version twists that one into a Sci-Fi experience with beautiful graphics, but a bit of an annoying set of somewhat necessary in-app purchases.  Continue reading for our comprehensive Flight Control Rocket review for the iPhone and iPad. … [Read more...]

Jetpack Joyride Review


Remember the old Helicopter game?  Maybe not, but if you do - think of Jetpack as an iOS enhanced version of  that classic.  Jetpack is a free universal game meaning that it will work on both your iPhone and iPad.
