App of the Week stories
Android App Review: Move It!
I feel like maybe it says something that they’re denying the accusations so strenuously before I’ve even had a chance to make them.
Android App Review: Toxic Thinking
Toxic Thinking unfortunately seems like an example of a good idea ruined by poor execution.
Android App Review: Unblock
"It’s to the designers’ credit that so many workable puzzles can be made from such a simple set-up. The box you play in is just six-by-six."
Android app review: Gloomy Dungeon 3d: Hardcore
Gloomy Dungeon 3d: Hardcore is a Doom-esque first-person shooter that is 3D, hardcore, and set in a gloomy dungeon. It’s perfect, really.
Hands on review: iPhone Data Recovery App
The hardware may be state of the art, the software well designed, but the meat-ware (that’s us) is more often than not both stupid and forgetful.
Android App Review: Napp
Napp is a nap-timing app, because what else could it be with that name?
Android App Review: NZ Blood Service
The Blood Service app won’t make dealing with needles any easier, But it does make it easier to find somewhere to donate blood and get you booked in.
Android App Review: Little Alchemy
For such a simple premise Little Alchemy is a delightful, absorbing game, and one that I would happily recommend for kids or adults.
Android App Review: Nail Doctor - Kids Games
Nail Doctor is everything I hate about cheaply-made, cynical revenue-grabbing apps, combined with everything I hate about foot hygiene.
Android App Review: Auckland Libraries App
The library system, including its online component, was already working fine for me. What do I actually need this app to do?
Android App Review: Birds of New Zealand
Living in New Zealand we’re blessed with many things. Not our internet speed or standard of reality television, but birds? We’ve done pretty well with birds.
iOS app review: Superhero Workout (Six to Start)
The title gives you an idea of what it is and what it intends: to trick lazy reprobates like me into exercising through that most odious of current tech buzzwords, “gamification”.
Android App Review: Anti-stress Chromotherapy
Anti-stress Chromotherapy is a fancy name for a simple idea, packaging a basic one-action app as a mental health tool.
Android App Review: Forest Live Wallpaper
In this hectic digital world it can be easy to get caught up in stress and fluster. Luckily there are apps like Forest Live Wallpaper, which help you escape into a semi-animated illustration of nature.
Android App Review: Detective’s Choice Volume 1
Then I find out that the leggy blonde’s name is "Sissy Tease". Um.
Android App Review: Food Planner
Food Planner is an app which acts like a recipe book, meal planner and grocery list combined. It’s a good app, but a terrible one to review when you’re hungry.
Android App Review: Color Pal
Color Pal is a simple app that showcases a range five-colour palettes of varying styles and tones.

iOS App Review: Tamagotchi
If you don’t discipline your Tamagotchi, it will grow up to be ugly. And no one wants that.
