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.

 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.

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.

Turtle Trek Mobile Game Launched by SeaWorld

SEAWORLD LAUNCHES FIRST MOBILE GAME: OCEAN-THEMED, OF COURSE
Turtle Trek Mobile Game SeaWorld’s Free Game App
– Proceeds from In-App Purchases Help Conservation –
SeaWorld® announced today the company’s first mobile game, Turtle Trek now available from the App Store.
Turtle Trek Mobile Game is a free download for the iPhone and iPad. Players guide an adventuresome sea turtle on a quest across the beach and into the water to find friends.  They help the plucky sea turtle navigate through the perilous seascape and conquer a variety of challenges, some dangerous and some light-hearted.
 
With help from friendly characters such as Shamu the killer whale and Nyah the green sea turtle, players collect treasures and fill virtual sticker books with an array of ocean friends met during their trek. SeaWorld engaged Sleepy Giant through its Flying Grom label to create the new game.
The Turtle Trek Mobile Game provides hours of fun and immersive action, and also offers an educational benefit by sharing fun facts about real sea animals.  Players encounter dozens of sea creatures but when they meet a special “Ocean Friend,” they gain a collectible virtual sticker for their Trek Book. At the touch of a finger, this virtual sticker opens to reveal interesting facts and photos about the actual ocean animal that the character resembles. These facts are kept easily accessible and can be shared with family and friends.

The game’s name and theme reflect the newest attraction at SeaWorld Orlando that opened this past April. The attraction blends up-close encounters with live sea turtles and manatees with the world’s first 3D, 360 degree domed theater. In this attraction, guests get a turtle’s eye view of the world as they are surrounded on all sides – and even above – by the hyper-realistic 3D film that is journey of a special sea turtle named Nyah.
Since 2011, SeaWorld has recently begun expanding its popular brand into new media and entertainment platforms such as mobile games, movies, television and new lines of licensed consumer products.
“SeaWorld has a 50-year history of creating entertainment experiences that inspire people to connect with animals, and this type of entertainment is a natural extension for our company,” said Scott Helmstedter, Chief Creative Officer of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. “It is engaging and fun, but also instills a greater understanding of some of the ocean’s amazing animals.”
The game is the first to be offered under the new partnership between SeaWorld and Sleepy Giant. Sleepy Giant’s Flying Grom label is focused on working with brands to create compelling, family-oriented interactive experiences.  
 
“We are thrilled to be working with SeaWorld, an exceptional brand and partner.  SeaWorld has a rich history of providing entertainment, education, and conservation in everything they do, and ‘Turtle Trek’ extends that tradition with fun and learning,” said Matt Hannus, CEO of Sleepy Giant.
While Turtle Trek offers a free opportunity to download and play, additional purchasable content is available. A portion of proceeds from the purchasable content will be donated directly to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
