Some Of The Many Things We Are Interested In:

Sushi is Trending in the App World

Sushi is always trending, popular and good for you. Fans of sushi love all things sushi, like sushi slippers to sushi plush toys you can even get a sushi hat. But don’t think the sushi fun train stops there. The Apple App store is alive with sushi games, recipes and even epic sushi love stories. From Evil Sushi Squishing to saving the love of Sushi Cat. Nothing is off limits for app developers when it comes to playing with sushi. In this review I have picked three really fun, sushi-themed apps that cost under a dollar. And if you are not a fan of sushi… you will be, you will be.

Sushi Cat, oh my, what a very cute fun game. Right away the graphics will grab your attention and it’s an easy game to understand and play. The games main character Sushi Cat had his love stolen from him and he has to eat the sushi to rescue his love. What is really fun is that he gets bigger and bigger while he eats his way through the game. Sushi and fat cats great fun for everyone.
A Bento Box: Virtual Sushi. Right off the bat you will love the look of the illustrated sushi.  This app makes me crave for sushi. You can put together your own Bento Box and they have a great selection of sushi to choose from. Then enjoy your sushi as your wallpaper or share your sushi with a friend by emailing it to them. Virtual food apps are on the rise, and trending and this app has no shortage of cute virtual food.
Evil Sushi Squish, another super cute app with sushi, geisha and ninjas. Much like a bubble pop game this app is great for all ages and skill levels. As you progress through the game you do have to use those ninja skills and go faster to get through the levels so it’s not always easy but it is always fun. This game has great sushi characters and I have never seen evil sushi look so dang cute. Share your score on Facebook and if you finish to the last level a fun little animation launches. A definite on my Sushi list of must haves.
Hope you enjoyed my sushi app review and I look forward in reviewing cat apps next week.

Halloween Costumes, Stories and Pranks

Boo! Did I scare you? Well Halloween is around the corner and the app stores are busting out some fantastic apps to enhance the spooky season. From costume games to spooky sounds, fun stories and even an app to find those ghosts lurking around the corner. With so many apps for the Halloween season I have narrowed it down to a few must haves on you’re smart phones for any age to enjoy. If your a fan of Halloween then you will love this review.

Halloween Costumes is a really cute app to get you in the mood for the season. This app has a selection of tops, bottoms, masks, among many other choices. You can create a number of combinations of costumes from Stormtroopers with fairy wings to a spooky vampire. A great way to brainstorm about your costume for this year. This app also has some fun animated features that makes it super cute.

Costumes are important to Halloween but it’s the spooky stories that are great to tell. Creepy Tails has a nice selection of Halloween stories that would be great to tell to share or to just read on your own. With 100 stories and 7 categories you can read one a night or save it for a Halloween party.

Now that the costumes and entertainment are taken care of all you need is a good Halloween prank, and Ghost Radar Classic has all the bells and whistles to scare your Halloween guests. It claims to read energy levels and can detect any ghost coming your way. For those that really take ghost to heart this could provide hours of fun and calling out those ghost might make your friends to spooked to play. But isn’t that what Halloween is all about?

Kids’ App Review: Monkey Preschool Lunchbox for iPhone, iPad, & Android

It’s hard to compete with “Monkey Preschool Lunch Box”  when it comes to iPhone, iPad, and Android apps for children.

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox by THUP Games

This adorable, animated app includes seven games that teach preschoolers about colors, letters counting, letters, and shapes.  Priced at $1.99 on Android ($0.99 on iPhone), it’s a bit expensive but the kids love it, so the parents love it.

An animated monkey helps you count bananas, identify colors, identify shapes, and pick fruits based on the starting letter.  The colors, sounds,  and required motor skills seem to appeal most strongly to the 2 to 4 year old set.  Slightly older kids may require a game with additional challenges but may still enjoy this delightful app.
