Tracks – Running with story (Unreleased)

The app has brought a new concept for taking your mind away from running and focus on the story. Concept wise it is good, it plays a story and and in the story you start to run slowly,pick pace a little and then run like hell and then again slow down a bit. The soundtrack is good like real blockbuster. It does tell you when to change the pace,but the story does not hold for long. You tend to get bored. The soundtrack though being of good quality does not bring in the desired effect. There are two stories on free version and others you can buy for $4.99. The stories are in two languages, English and Korean. I liked the Korean version though it’s same but the girls talking in Korean sounded much more real and in the story. I downloaded it because I like the concept of listening to blockbuster sounds and being a part of story but the free versions where not to my taste.

Choices

This is a story based game. I think I have fallen in love with story based games. They are much better than I thought. You get to be a part of story and either play along or choose what you might like to be the outcome. It is like reading a book with you being in charge and you have lots of option. You can choose a theme,there are lots of different theme like romance,mystery, fantasy. You can choose your look,hair,dress and be with people you choose. The game is designed in such a way it gives you control but with lots of options so choosing and constantly changing storyline will be fun for you. You will be lost in it. Heartbreaks,marriage, dating,adventure, drama,family everything is here. I liked it,you get a good feeling playing this game.

Adventure Escape: Space Crisis

I had never played a story based game involving  solving puzzles. I think if you have not then it’s going to be tough for you too unless you like and have a knack for solving puzzles. The game is about exploring a space station to find survivors and return home. The graphics are good and tapping each panel would help you to find things for solving puzzle. You get stars to collect and can be used for hints.

The game is simple and very engrossing once you get to know the hint but it will take you some time to understand that what’s the hint and how it’s to be used. The puzzles increase in level of difficulty and if you do not put your brain to work you will loose all your stars for hint and then will be stuck. Take each puzzle slowly understand that it has clue on the screen and you can find it. Like for instance if you see panel and there is some instruction written somewhere pay attention to little details the clue is there. I will show you one with pictures.

 see here in the manual the pattern here holds the key for manual flying of spacecraft. Again if you see a shut panel and if it’s of glass you need to find a hammer to open it. Beautiful game,it’s not like other games where you are lost to the power of zombies or are in different world,here you actually put your brain to work. Try it it’s fun.

Mantras for the Chakras Prof

There are 114 chakras in the body. There are many more, these are the major ones. You can see them as 114 junction boxes.These junctions are always in the form of triangles. Because it embodies movement from one dimension to another, it is referred to as a “chakra,” which means “wheel” or “circle,” but it is actually a triangle. Out of these 114, two are outside the physical body. Of the remaining 112, only 108 can actually be worked upon.The seven fundamental chakras are known asmuladhara, which is located at the perineum, the space between the anal outlet and the genital organ.swadhisthana, which is just above the genital organ,manipuraka, which is just below the navel.anahata, which is just beneath where the rib cage meets. vishuddhi, which is at the pit of the throat.ajna, which is between the eyebrows and sahasrara is at the top of the head,if your energies are dominant in muladhara, then food and sleep will be the most dominant factors in your life. Chakras have more than one dimension to them. One dimension is their physical existence, but they also have a spiritual dimension. This means that they can be completely transformed. 

The trasformation requires meditation with chanting of mantra,there are lot of related articles on net. This app has seven chakras,simple app you can just go on listing to each one while you meditate to open each chakras.

The name of things – for kids

The app is for learning 6 six different languages (French,Italian,German,English,Portuguese and Spanish ) for kids 8 years and younger. Though I found it useful for myself too if you want to learn a new language. The graphics are OK and there are only 30 words to learn in free edition. I guess teaching kids will be a costly affair. The app is good because of clarity of voice and pronunciation but it’s not fun as other kids app are. Kids like lot of animation and cartoons(I like them too), it is more fun learning that way. The app only shows a picture and says it’s name with no animation. Moreover when lot of other better apps are there in market why should we choose this one and that too pay money for it. I have written couple of reviews for kids learning apps you can see them or write to me I can help you find a better one. I didn’t like the app .

Alto’s Adventure 

This is one of the sweetest game I have ever played. The game is simple,fun and beautiful. It takes you to Alpine snow moutains where you embark on an endless snowboarding odyssey through villages,woodlands,collecting Llamas,coins,jumping over rocks and chasm. The controls are easy and it will take you little tI’m to master it though timing ofleaping over and chasm and jumping over two rocks might take some time to master. Very addictive game. The best part is the music, it’s really good,you feel happy even after falling. A very different approach to a speed game,try it you will love it.

Drivvo – Car management 

​Manage the cost of fuel consumption and economy, car maintenance expenses and service costs of your car, motorcycle, bus or truck.Track average Km / liter, monthly expenses, averages per day, fuels, etc.. Using this application you’ll have a hands on financial control of your vehicle. This is what the app says and when you open the app you can get all this by writing lot of things like odometer reading,how much gas you got and for how much,this way it can calculate your fuel efficiency and if you put in your trip distance it can tell how much will it cost and plan your maintenance and registration for car. Overall economic summary of car can be maintained with it but how long will you be putting those readings? Will you be able to put reading every time you refuel? Will you be even able to keep a track of odometer after you do the trip? The app is good but it needs lot of your input. I won’t be able to maintain it for long. If you can and if you are good with numbers and really want to know about economics of your car and keep a track of your budget,go for it.

Cookbook Recipes

The cookbook recipes is nothing special. It has all the recipes which you can find it anywhere on net just that here its in the app. They have chosen lot of different cuisines(Chinese,Indian,Continental,spanish,mexican,american,and cuban) but in each cuisine there are not lot of recipes. Smoothies,pancacke you can find it anywhere.  The calorific value,shopping list is in all cooking apps. The good part of app is you can straight away like a recipe and it’s added to your favorite,you can also fork it means you can tweak a recipe either from net or from app and make changes and in it. You can view these recipes offline,you can also take a printout straight from the app,you can also watch it on Android TV . If you are into cooking take a look and see if it’s useful.

Jetpack Joyride

  • This is fun. The game is high paced and very addictive,so addictive that every time I wanted to take a screen shot I forgot it.The character Barry breaks into a secret laboratory to commandeer the experimental jetpacks from the clutches of science evildoers. After lift-off, simply touch the screen to ascend and release to descend, raining bullets, bubbles, rainbows and lasers downwards as you fly towards higher scores.You’ll start off with the Machine Gun Jetpack to scatter the evil scientists of Legitimate Research, but throughout each game you’ll collect coins and complete missions to earn cash and buy new gear in the store. You can pick your favorite jetpack, outfit and stock up on items. You get a boost of speed and power using the Lil’ Stomper, Profit Bird and Crazy Freaking Teleporter(vehicles).
