FREE APP ROUND-UP (APR 11 2012) [TOUCHPAD]

11 Apr

Another two application get the round up treatment.

Magic Puzzles: Famous Paintings : 64%

This application allows you to select from 10 paintings and then put together a jigsaw of the painting. This game is more for adults or older kids as the jigsaw sizes start at 42 pieces and go up to 288 pieces. The jigsaw side of the game works well and works as it should. The user interface for navigating the pictures needs a little work, as you need to tap onto them to move the list along. The big issue with the application are the number of advertisements, they are on every page and a pop up before every game. They are even on the jigsaw margin, but worst than that the jigsaw pauses as a new advert is downloaded (every 3 minutes). The app also asks for location services to be switched on, I think this is only used to make sure you are served the correct adverts for your area. All this said, it is a very good jigsaw puzzle game, if you can put up with the pauses.

GameFly : 63%

This application may be of more interest to U.S. readers than U.K. ones. The application is based on the Gamefly game rental service. For the U.K., we are limited to buying PC games from there site, however, in the U.S. you can rent Xbox, PS3 games etc. This application shows game information (like images, reviews and trailers). You can click rent within the application and this will redirect to website in a new card to access the gamefly gamesite. There is a nice search and filter option if you are not interested in seeing all consoles. For the UK it is a fair gaming resource app (some games are not available in the U.K.), but for our U.S. friends who have gaming consoles will find it far more useful.
