The Simpsons: Tapped Out App Review

SimpsonsIf you are anything like me, you may have caught at least a few episodes of The Simpsons marathon on FXX. The channel is playing all 552 episodes of The Simpsons in order. I’ve watched The Simpsons since the late 1980s when it debuted as part of the Tracey Ullman show.

All this got me thinking about the only game I’ve ever played on my phone on a regular basis: The Simpsons: Tapped Out. Shelley actually got me started playing it a little over a year ago and I don’t think I’ve gone more than a few days once or twice in the past year without playing. The app is available for free on iOS and Android devices at this time. There are plenty of in app purchases that you can spend your money on if you so desire though. The headline in the app store is that the game is life-ruiningly fun. Preach on.Photo Aug 27, 7 21 46 PM

The basic premise of the game is pretty simple. Homer accidentally blew up Springfield and it is up to you to rebuild it however you wish. There are tasks you can accomplish to unlock buildings, decorations, characters, and even earn (fake) cash. It is a very similar concept to the game the Sims. One of the great things about this game is that it is produced by the writers of The Simpsons show. They will have updates with new characters, story lines and fun Easter eggs from episodes shortly after they air. You can also earn donuts for leveling up, special tasks and randomly in the game. These donuts can be used to purchase premium items in the game, or you can also purchase donuts for real cash to get those hard to get items.

It has great throwbacks to one time characters like Rex Banner, and most all of your favorites. As you continue to play, your town can grow and you can even invite others to be your neighbors. The benefit of having neighbors is typically twofold: 1) you can visit your neighbors to get extra cash, experience points (which help you proceed from one level to the next), and friendship points (these provide you with different gifts as you achieve a new level); 2) during different overlays, you need neighbors to be able to steal things, attack, plant items that will accrue money and points for you, etc.Photo Aug 27, 7 26 54 PM

The different overlays throughout the year are some of my favorite times to play. Since I’ve been playing, we’ve seen different overlays of the Simpsons for Whacking Day, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and my favorite, the Stonecutter’s overlay. Right now the current missions are based around barbarians and have a medieval theme to them. These all help to keep the game fresh by introducing new characters, buildings, special prizes, and more.

Photo Aug 27, 7 30 47 PMI will warn you, this game is addictive. My friends at work will often walk by me on a break and know that I’m playing this game. I’ve got dozens of friends who play, which helps out as far as neighbors, but they will also keep on you if you haven’t played in a while (I’m looking at you, Cheryl). I play The Simpsons: Tapped Out for probably half an hour at most each day, but you can spend as much or as little time you want playing. Tasks can vary from seconds to days depending on your characters, and some missions require multiple characters to complete them simultaneously. If you have plenty of free time on a day, you may set your characters on shorter missions because you can send them for more right away, which will earn you more money and more experience points. If you’re going to be unavailable for a while, send them all on 8, 12 or 24 hour tasks.Photo Aug 27, 7 36 06 PM

I highly recommend this game if you are a fan of the Simpsons. There is a lot of flexibility in the game to devote a little or a lot of time playing. The goals are constantly changing, which keeps it interesting. I love how they incorporate stories from throughout the past 25 years, but also almost always bring in stuff from new episodes every month. It is a fun game that allows you to exercise some creativity in the design of your town. And if you don’t like it, you can start over from scratch, just keep in mind some of the buildings may need to be rebuilt as opposed to just pulled out of inventory. Have you played The Simpsons: Tapped Out? I know Shelley, Todd, Cheryl, Jillian and I all play. If you want us to be your neighbors, leave your username in the comments below and we’ll try to add you if we aren’t at our limit. Let me know what you think of this game.

Day of the Shirt Mobile App Review

Some of you may have noticed my *slight* t-shirt problem. Or, you may have noticed us tweet out some of our favorite shirts occasionally. Most of these are due in thanks to a great website and mobile app called Day of the Shirt. This app is available for iphone only at this time, but they also have a great website, facebook and twitter account.

The premise of the app and the Day of the Shirt website is that there are quite a few t-shirt sites out there and it is hard to keep track of them all. The app updates on a daily or weekly basis with feeds from dozens of different shirt sites. This way, instead of having to go to a bunch of websites each day, you can get one push notification daily with all the updates. Most of these sites offer shirts at affordable prices for a very limited period of time, ranging from 24 hour to a week. Some of the sites start as low as $6 for their shirts and average around $10-12, with shipping ranging from free to around $3.

I find this app to be a great addition to help me keep track of the latest and greatest shirt designs. Most of the sites feature what’s hot in pop culture or may run a theme of a classic movie/tv/game. Today’s shirts include things like Dr. Who, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Star Wars, Sleeping Beauty, Captain America, Indiana Jones, Monty Python, Pac-Man, He-Man, Stitch, Super Mario Bros, Zelda, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Harry Potter, Frozen and even more that I don’t get without looking them up.

When you click on the picture of a particular shirt, a window pops up and shows a close up of the shirt with a link to the site selling the shirt and the price. There are options to click to go to the site or to share the shirt right from the app. The settings for the push notifications are pretty straightforward with the option to sort by normal order or newest shirts first. You can also set push notifications on or off and what time you want them sent.

The sites I’ve ordered most frequently from are TeeFury (which their shirts often run small), Pop-Up Tees, Ript, Unamee and Woot! Each site usually shows their individual sizing charts, so be sure to consult these before ordering. And if, like me, your cat happens to jump on you and change your shirt size while you are checking out, maybe email the company right away explaining what happened and they may fix it for you. The good news is, often if you miss out on the time window for one of your favorite shirts, they offer them at higher prices from the vault at like $18 instead of $10.

Shout out to our friend Scarlett for introducing me to this site. I figured it was about time I shared the love. I have a love/hate relationship with this app. I love the awesome shirts that I have now because of it, but hate how much money it makes me part with. Have you used it before? Will you now you know about it? Good luck and happy shopping!

Disney Movies Anywhere App Review

Disney Movies AnywhereThis week Disney released a new app for Apple iOS and a website called Disney Movies Anywhere. The app and website work in conjunction with iTunes to give you access to any Disney, Pixar or Marvel movies you own with digital copies.Photo Feb 25, 9 03 32 AM

In addition to giving you the ability to download the movies to your phone, tablet or computer, you can stream the movies over wifi or cellular signal. The movies are just the tip of the iceberg as far as content goes. Many films have numerous extras such as you would find as bonuses on DVDs or blu rays. There are also clips and shorts available like Mickey’s classics “The Band Concert” and “Mickey and the Beanstalk” in their entirety.

The app and website are broken down into sections. The first is called Featured, where you will find the latest and greatest new releases and upcoming releases. Browse/Movies is next. It is called Browse on the site and Movies on the app, but does the same thing allowing you to find movies by all movies listed (of which there are more than 400), or by a category like Muppets Mayhem or Sports. Up next is My Collection. This is where you will see all of your unlocked digital movies and any content you have favorited on a separate tab, which works saving favorites between the app and the site. Discover is where you can find exclusive content videos as well as the classic shorts that I previously mentioned. Rewards/More are where you can link your Disney Movie Rewards account and enter points for purchases. On the app, this is also where your settings are found along with More Magic, which lists other Disney apps available to download or buy.

My Collection
My Collection

Being brand new, there are a few bugs to still work out. The one I encountered most frequently was app crashing and being logged out of my account. I found it relatively easy and straightforward to link my iTunes account and Disney Movie Rewards accounts. Both of these helped to import the Disney movies that I had already attached to digital copies.

I love how the app works almost seamlessly with iTunes allowing in app purchases and rentals. Organization through categories makes content easy to find as well as browsing and search features. For a limited time, you can receive a free digital copy of the Incredibles to add to your collection after you’ve registered and linked your iTunes account. I also got a bonus 100 Disney Movie Rewards points for linking that account as a bonus.

I think this is a great addition to the Disney family of apps. It makes accessing my Disney movies a little easier and I love all the bonus videos. I can’t wait to see how they keep it up to date with new clips and videos being released to promote upcoming movies being released in iTunes and on DVD and Blu Ray. If you get a chance, definitely check out this new app if you have any Disney, Pixar or Marvel movies that you have digital copies of already or if you’re looking to expand your horizons by just renting the movies for now. Have you tried the Disney Movies Anywhere app or website yet? What do you think about it? Let me know in the comments.

WWE App Review

WWE App

Are you a huge WWE fan and can’t stand to spend a minute away from all the action? Look no further than the WWE App. Available for both iOS and Android platforms, this app puts you the fan in charge. With breaking news, highlights from Raw, Smackdown, WWE PPV’s and the soon to come WWE Network you’ll never miss a beat of the action.

One of the coolest things in my opinion about the WWE App itself is that when any of the WWE televised events go to commercial break, you can continue to watch the match going on live when you switch over to the app. No longer do you have to worry about missing when your TV screen fades to black. Best of all, the WWE App let’s you in on exclusive backstage content that you won’t be able to see anywhere else.

Another great thing about the WWE app is the superstar profiles. Each of your favorite WWE Superstars from present and past are located on the app and on each of their bio pages their entrance music as well as tons of photo and video content from some of their greatest matches. It’s truly unbelievable how expansive the WWE library is. You can even relive classic matches like Andre the Giant vs. Hulk Hogan, all at your fingertips.

 

Superstars

 Arguably one of the best things about the app is the fact that the WWE has now given power back to its fans the WWE Universe. Often times during shows such as Raw and Smackdown, fans will be given the change to vote on the matches they want to see, making the show very interactive. For me as a lifelong fan, there’s truly nothing better than getting to influence a match because you know it’s what you and millions of other wrestling fans out there want to see.

 

My Universe Orlando

 

All in all, the WWE app is a must have for any wrestling fan whether you’re a lifelong fan or just getting into wrestling for the first time. Be sure to download the WWE App in the App Store of your iOS device or the apps section of Google Play on your Android device. Also be sure to check out the brand new WWE Network, WWE’s new 24/7 HD programming network available for purchase through the WWE App on 2/24/14 for $9.99 a month.

Field Trip from Google mobile app review

Field Trip is one of those apps that I stumbled upon recently. It is developed by Google, but is also available on Apple devices. This app helps you explore the world around you by discovering points of interest based on different categories. You can setup the app to find things around you in specific subjects like Architecture, Historic Places & Events, Lifestyle, Offers & Deals, Food, Drinks & Fun, Cool & Unique, and Art & Museums.

In the Field Trip app you can see things around you on a map using Google Maps, in a list on the Nearby tab, Recent places you have been near, and Favorites that you can save by logging into your Google account. Once you sign in with your profile, you also have the ability to sign up for the Fieldtripper newsletter by email that will send you suggestions to your inbox.

Within each of the interest categories, you can select the feeds that contribute to the suggestions. These are taken from all over the world, so you can drill down and choose to leave out some that are in other languages or not specific to your geographic location if you opt to do so. I like to keep everything selected because you never know when someone in Germany will travel to your area and suggest something new to try. Also, in each subject you can select on a sliding scale to show more or less from each particular source. Field Trip additionally allows you to set the frequency of your overall notifications from Explore (frequent), Feeling Lucky (occasional) to Off (disabled).

Speak When options
Speak When options

Settings for Field Trip can be customized to turn notification sounds on and off. Bluetooth can also be enabled if you want to have your sounds come through instead of through your phone or tablet speakers. A cool feature is the speaking aspect of the Field Trip app. You can choose to have titles and descriptions, just titles, or nothing spoken to you by the app. Furthermore, you can tell the app when to speak.

I love the Field Trip app for discovering new stuff around home for a staycation, exploring a new area, or just learning more about places you’ve already visited. You can share the information you discover through Google+, Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, text, etc. right from the Field Trip app. Feedback options are available for each article so content can be improved over time. Each card for the points of interest features more detailed information including a Google Maps link for easy directions. Here you can see info on McKechnie Field and Bonefish Grill in the app.

Disney Story App Review

Recently, Disney released a new free app called Story for Apple iOS devices running 5.1 or later. According to the developer notes in the App Store, the Disney Story app is optimized for iPhone 5. Although I have an iPhone 4S, I had no evident issues although the app was not designed for my particular model of phone.

The basic premise behind the app is that the pictures and videos you take tell the stories of your life. You are able to view shared stories on a unique website that is created for each Disney Story created in the app. If you choose to share just keep in mind that those who can see your Facebook or are invited to the email will be able to see the story, so please don’t publish private information like addresses or phone numbers. The information provided by Disney from the App Store indicates that the unique Disney Story websites will not be able to be searched for or found without the unique web address. Any pictures or videos uploaded, but not shared are deleted from the app’s server after seven days.

I found the app to be very user friendly and intuitive for anyone familiar with an Apple device. The Disney Story app accesses your camera roll to organize pictures and videos by date and location. This makes it very easy to see stories of your life appear before you to share with others.

Selecting Moments to Start a Story

Once you have downloaded and installed the app, make sure you login to or create a Disney account. This is necessary in order to share your stories. When you have selected what kind of story you want to tell by date and location by choosing pictures to start from in My Moments, you can start creating your Story. The Story is limited to 20 pictures, but allows you some creative latitude in layout and editing the pictures to zoom in and out. It is very easy to add pictures from your camera roll, delete unwanted pictures, rearrange the order of pictures and even take new pictures and video straight from the app. After just a few minutes of playing with Disney Story, I created a story of my own. You can see it here.

Here is a video from the Apple App Store showing the sizzle reel for Disney Story: httpv://youtu.be/FemQuheA4mw

I think this is a fantastic app that will allow people to very easily create and share stories with friends and families while on the go. You don’t have to wait to get back from vacation to share that story about the first time the kids met their favorite characters in the Magic Kingdom. You caught it all on video and in pictures and can email it off to grandma and grandpa while you are right there still in the park. It will be a great way of sharing the magical moments your family and friends experience on a small scale with those who aren’t there or even with all of your Facebook friends. I love the Disney Story app and look forward to using it more to share stories with friends and family that aren’t able to join me on my adventures. Creating these little vignettes is a quick and easy way to share your stories one moment at a time instead of in a large album of your entire vacation. I hope you all will take the time to download this new app and I look forward to seeing your stories!

Do you have the Disney Story app? What do you think? Have you used it yet to share your stories? Tell us about it!

iPad Used At The Carmel Café & Wine Bar For An Improved Dining Experience

Carmel Cafe iPad

Recently I went to Carmel Café & Wine Bar in Sarasota for a friend’s birthday lunch. It was my first time visiting the restaurant and was very pleasantly surprised by what I encountered. The aesthetics were nice and it was welcoming and comforting from when you enter. What I was most excited about after I walked in was seeing the stack of Apple iPads on a table by the hostess stand.

I immediately asked the hostess jokingly if we got iPads to play with during our meal. Surprisingly, she said we got one, but not to play with. She explained as she escorted us to our table that the iPads are used for ordering. The menus are all on there along with the ability to order.

I had a new toy to play with during lunch and couldn’t wait to explore the functionality! The menus were very clearly laid out and featured full color pictures as well as written descriptions of each menu item. You could swipe from right to left to select the next category from appetizers to entrees, beverages to dessert. You also have the ability to search from the menu at the top and quickly jump to the desired category instead of scrolling through them.

Flatbread menu
Menu Search
Gluten Free Menu
Vegetarian Menu

This was such an awesome experience! To be able to control your food and the timing and not have to depend on servers to come around was great. We first ordered our drinks, then appetizers, then when we were getting towards the end of our first course, we ordered our entrees. This made the process so much smoother and more fun than the typical dining experience. Service was prompt and the timing flowed much better instead of food being brought out before you were ready only to get cold, or long after you had finished your previous course.

Our server still stopped by periodically, but it felt like at natural times to see about water refills, instead of the often annoyance of a server coming too frequently or not frequently enough. This felt like we had more control over our meal and the experience was made more enjoyable by the technology Carmel Café brought to the table. We even had the ability to see our check as we added items to our order on the iPad.

On top of the amazing use of technology to ameliorate our meal, the food was excellent. There were tons of healthy options including gluten free and vegetarian menu options. I cannot wait to go back to Carmel Café again since this was such a pleasurable experience and the food was great! They even offer great specials like “After 5 at Carmel,” which feature $5.00 wines, small plates and martinis on weeknights from 5-7pm, Wine Wednesdays, and Prix Fixe Dinners for 2. In addition to the Sarasota restaurant, they have locations in Tampa and Clearwater.

I highly recommend Carmel Café and hope that some of this use of the iPad technology will spread to other restaurants and maybe even to our theme parks. I was recently listening to an episode of the Betamouse podcast from last year and they talked about their desire to see something of this nature at Walt Disney World. I would love to see this come to fruition in the near future whether by iPad or even your own smartphone. Like they say in Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress at the Magic Kingdom, “What will they think up next? … Who know? We’ve got a whole new century waiting for us out there.”

Daily Shot App Web Series Now Available On The Go In The App Store

DISNEY INTERACTIVE LAUNCHES DAILY SHOT ON THE APP STORE

Daily Shot App Web Series Now Available On The Go

 

Daily Shot  App
Daily Shot Now Available in the App Store!

Fans of Popular Newsy Web Series Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth Can Now Get Their Daily Cup of News and Laughter to Go!

 

Disney Interactive has launched Daily Shot on the App Store, a new app that delivers episodes of the popular newsy web show Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth right to fans’ iPhones and iPads. With the Daily Shot app, fans can also access past episodes of the show and easily share their favorite videos with friends via email, Twitter and Facebook. You will even be able to connect directly with Ali Wentworth through her Twitter account@AliEWentworth!

On Daily Shot with Ali Wentworth, the funny comedienne, actress, best-selling author and mother of two, shares her irreverent take on the latest news and current events, along with her producer and co-host John Carhart. The 3-7 minute episodes are filmed at her kitchen table and on location around New York City, and provide busy parents a daily dose of news, celebrity gossip, sports headlines, and more.

I have really enjoyed the episodes that I have seen, because it reminds of when I was little and heard my Mom talking around the table with her friends over a cup of coffee. And while the episodes are only a few minutes, the time doesn’t pas by too quickly and it doesn’t seem so compacted that it seems rushed or forced.

Daily Shot airs across the Yahoo! network, including Yahoo! Screen (http://screen.yahoo.com) and Shine (http://shine.yahoo.com) and on Disney’s leading online parenting platform, Babble.com, where she also has a personal blog titled Ali in Wonderland.

Ali Wentworth was co-creator, star and co-executive producer of the television series, Head Case on the Starz Network. She has appeared in numerous television shows including, The Oprah Winfrey Show as an on-air correspondent, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Hard Ball, In Living Color and Seinfeld, among others. Her movie appearances include “It’s Complicated,” “Jerry Maguire,” “Trial and Error” and “The Real Blonde.”  Earlier this year, Ms. Wentworth released a new book, Ali in Wonderland, a collection of funny stories about her life, which quickly became a New York Times best seller.  She has also authored The WASP Cookbook, a collection of family recipes spiced up with a humorous commentary on life.

If you have a few minutes, make sure to check the Daily Shot out!!!
