iPhone App Reviews – Issue 1

Since there isn’t usually much to say about iPhone Apps, I’m going to be grading them on a scale of three: avoid, passable, and good.

Fast Ball 2

This game is very basic, all you do is jump. That’s it. You roll across the stages, tapping the screen to jump to other platforms and to avoid obstacles. The jump isn’t even affected by how long you tap the screen either, so it’s all about timing the jumps perfectly. The collision detection can be wonky at times, sometimes I was even able to jump off the top of obstacles. Overall, this game can be kinda fun, but it isn’t anything special.

Final Rating: Passable

Dilbert

  This is a very good app, it has every Dilbert comic available to view. The only issue I have with this app is when your looking for a certain comic, and then turn the phone on its side, the app will take you all the way back to the start of the list.

Final Rating: Good


Applets

This is an interesting app, with lots of little features. I really like its battery status indicator, which clearly tells you exactly how long your battery will last doing different things.
Final Rating: Passable
