Ruzzle Free review

An engrossing crossword puzzle, Ruzzle Free features straightforward gameplay but turns out to be quite challenging, especially when you play against other human opponents. If you like words, you'll love this game.

Pros

Quick, fun, and engaging: Uncomplicated as it is, Ruzzle Free challenges you to spell as many words as possible by swiping your finger across the letters on a board, supporting all directions, so that you can come up with ten-letter or even longer words. The longer your words, and the more double- or triple-word scores you check (scores and bonuses appear at the top of every … Read more

InstaVideo review

InstaVideo lets you combine images and existing videos into slideshows, complete with your own music. We've seen similar apps that are easier to use, but InstaVideo isn't a bad choice for creating slideshows on the go.

Archivaldo for Mac review

Archivaldo for Mac creates file archives using a proprietary compact binary file system called the Archivaldo Resource Archive or ARA. It's lightweight and easy to use, but won't substitute for your existing archiving app.

Candy Pop Saga review

Candy Pop Saga is a puzzle game that challenges you to work through increasingly difficult levels with varied goals to unlock more adventures. You can compete against yourself, or connect with Facebook to see how your skills stack up against those of your friends.

Like many similar games, Candy Pop Saga features a grid-like display filled with different colored candies. However, the mechanics of this game are a bit different from what you might be used to, as you only need to tap groups of candies twice to remove them from the board; and they are not replaced as you … Read more
