Super Stickman Golf 2 review

Super Stickman Golf 2 delivers everything you'd expect from a fun 2D golf simulator and doesn't force you to make any in-app purchases to enjoy the game. More than a great game, this title is an example of what a freemium app should be.


Addictive gameplay: Super Stickman Golf 2's straightforward aim-and-hit gameplay challenges you without frustrating you, featuring excellent ball mechanics and responsive controls. The big challenge comes from the 20 creatively designed fairways whose fantastical shapes and portals, moving obstacles, repulsor magnets, and sticky pink goo add excitement to an otherwise slow-paced game.

Plenty … Read more

InstaSize review

InstaSize instantly resizes digital images so they can be posted without cropping on Instagram, but it does a lot more than that, like creating photo collages, applying filters, and adding layers, text, and borders. The latest release of Munkee's free app, InstaSize 2.3.1, runs in Android 2.2 and up.


Neat & clean: InstaSize's crisply rendered layout reflects Instagram's style and gives quick and easy access to features and settings.

Camera-ready: Taking pictures with your camera through InstaSize automatically resizes them, so they're ready to post with the fewest possible steps, or you … Read more

Android Firewall review

Much like your PC's firewall, Android Firewall blocks or allows access to your device. This free app builds on Droidwall but with more features and options. Android Firewall isn't difficult to set up or use, but it does require root access to your device. If you don't know what that is or aren't sure how or why to root your device, you probably shouldn't do it. But advanced users or those with unlocked devices should have a look.


Firewall security: Android Firewall blocks intrusive apps and helps limit data use by preventing apps from … Read more

Talking Tom Cat review

Talking Tom features an animated cat that you can pet, poke, feed, and get to repeat the things you say in a silly, distorted voice. While this app can theoretically be used in Child or Adult mode, it's really something younger kids will have the most fun with.


Good animation: The animation and sound effects in this app are great. Tom is kind of a silly looking cat, but that's perfect for this program. He sneezes, yawns, and purrs, and reacts to your petting by doing a little dance, all of which are fun reactions to elicit.… Read more

Redhaven Outline review

Redhaven Outline helps students organize information for research, projects, and presentations. It seems to be geared toward older students, but could help anyone who needs to organize a lot of information. It's free and works well.

The program opens with an introduction in outline format, so you can get familiar with what the program does and how the outlines will look. The interface is all-business, with a straightforward File menu over a split window. On the left is the current outline; on the right are fields in which you can enter information related to the outline, including Key Words, … Read more
