Alice in Chains App Review: App Gives Way to Blue

by panappticon on December 5, 2009

This is going to be a pretty short review of the Alice in Chains App for the iPhone. Do you like Alice in Chains? Yes you say? Then you might want to pick up the Alice in Chains App. Don’t like them? Then you can probably stop reading now. If you’re undecided, I’d probably put the money you would spend towards this App towards buying their latest album on iTunes for $7.99. The App is in a bit of a weird place in terms of who might get true value out of it. Rabid fans might think it’s too simple. [...]

sdk IQ Review: iPhone Developer Reference

sdk IQ is a strange App to review (for me anyway). You see, it’s an App for iPhone developers and for people learning iPhone development and it includes tutorials and videos to hopefully make learning a bit easier and I am, quite frankly, not an iPhone developer (always full disclosure here on Pantppticon!). If you’re wanting to learn iPhone App development, I can’t really make a recommendation one way or another that’s worth anything about sdk IQ–I’m simply not an iPhone developer so I cannot faithfully and accurately judge the quality of the content inherent in the App. Therefore, if [...]

This is going to be a short and sweet review of CompareMe. What is it? It basically lets you compare two differently packaged and priced products in a store or online to see which one is the better deal. Still confused? It’ll let you see if the 6 pack of Coke or the 2 liter bottle is the better deal, and break down all the pricing/quantity details for you in excruciating detail if you want. The bottom line is that it’s easy to use, fast (due to said ease of use) and really quite useful. It converts pretty much anything [...]

When is an iPhone App as fun as an iPhone Game? When it’s Occipital’s barcode scanning App, RedLaser [App Store Link]. What is it? Quite simply, it turns your iPhone into a super-fast barcode scanner that will let you comparison shop with ease. In a store trying to figure out if their price is a good deal? Just grab your iPhone, open RedLaser, press one button and almost instantly the product’s barcode will be scanned with uncanny accuracy and a listing of online merchants (Amazon and Google Products merchants) will tell you what it’s selling for online. Of course with [...]

Melodica [App Store Link] is kind of an odd iPhone app to review. It’s a music app, yes. However, it doesn’t really let you do much. It’s basically an iPhone version of Tone Matrix. You touch the squares on the screen and when the line on the screen passes over a box that you’ve lit up, it makes a pleasant noise and keeps looping over the light grid. Of course, you can light up as many or as few boxes as you desire. You can save your creations for later retrieval as well, a nice touch. The only other real [...]

As if it wasn’t already quick and easy enough to get your Chipotle fix, it’s now even faster and cooler. The Chipotle iPhone App made a brief appearance on the App Store earlier this year, however was removed (word is that there was just too much demand and the system they had in place wasn’t handling it very well). But now the Chipotle iPhone App is back! Skip the line and reduce the time between craving and consuming your favorite Chipotle delicacy (chicken fajita burritos with guacamole are my weakness) by ordering straight from your iPhone. Once it’s ordered you [...]
