Prime for Instagram

What makes smartphones great? Well, aside from their hardware, what truly elevates one’s experience with it are the apps that are installed on the device.

The Apple app ecosystem is, in my opinion, better than what Google has to offer. That is because it has a much stricter vetting process and the ones that you can find on the App Store are verified to a considerable extent.

That being said, if you are on the lookout for some amazing deals, read further to find out the best game sales and app discounts for iOS in August.

Best Apps for iOS at Discounted Prices

1.Teslagrad

Price: $0.99

Teslagrad

If you want a unique puzzle game complete with all of the makings of an amazing title, then Teslagrad is for you.

You embark on a journey as a boy with special ‘Teslamancer’ technology that will help you in your quest to climb high up top the abandoned Tesla Tower.

Although this is touted as a puzzle game, there are some action elements wherein you are the one controlling the character to move and deal with certain situations.

I really like the hand-made graphics that truly helps this app stand out above the rest.

And the great thing about Teslagrad is that you only need to pay once upfront which means that you will not get conned by in-app purchases or whatnot.

For just under $1, Teslagrad is definitely what you want to play on your iPhone.

2.Finder for Fitbit

Price: $3.99

Finder for Fitbit

Isn’t it frustrating that you have to find your phone because you forgot where you placed it? This is also the same feeling you experience when you lose your smartwatch.

Fortunately, if you use a Fitbit, there is an app that will help lead you directly to where the smartwatch is.

It is known simply as the Finder for Fitbit application and it is offered at a discounted price of $3.99 (down from $5.99).

This application supports almost all of Fitbit’s products, including (but not limited to) the Fitbit Charge 3, Alta, Versa, Ionic, Charge 2, Blaze, Flex 2, and so much more.

If you have the knack of losing your Fitbit from time to time, getting this application just makes perfect sense.

3.Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

Price: $6.99

Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind

If you are a fan of turn-based RPG, then Six Ages: Ride Like the Wind will certainly be quite appealing to you.

Most role-playing games nowadays are either in the puzzle or action genres and although they are quite enjoyable, there are still some people that clamor for turn-based gameplay instead.

This game is vast thanks to the 400 interactive scenes that can result in multiple outcomes. That provides you with a lot of replay value.

If you want to turn nostalgic by playing a turn-based RPG, then get this game. It is at a $3 discount which is still a good deal for what you are getting.

4.YoWindow Weather App

Price: Free

YoWindow Weather App

Weather apps are great because they can help tell you what weather is going to be in your area on a given day.

The problem with most weather apps is that they are pretty bland. Sure, they provide somewhat accurate information about today’s weather but it might not convince you to read everything because of the dull interface.

Well, if you want a more vibrant weather app, then the YoWindow Weather app is for you.

What’s interesting about this app over the others is that it provides you with the usual weather information today but it also presents you with an interactive wallpaper that reflects the current weather in your area.

So for instance, if it is currently raining in your state, you will be shown a wallpaper that reflects that.

If the sun is going to set and the clouds are clear, you will see the sun setting in the background whilst also providing you with more information about the weather if you want it.

Another great thing about this app is that it can certainly tell you the weather up to three days ahead so you can prepare your activities beforehand.

And you know what the best part of it is? It is currently offered for free in the App store! Download the application today!

5.Photo Magic 360 Express- Visual Creator

Price: $0.99

Photo Magic 360 Express- Visual Creator

We live in a world where we rely a lot on social media. If you run a business, for example, posting some photos of your products will certainly help you gain more customers.

If you are a model, your looks are going to be your calling card so you want to look your absolute best each and every time.

Photo Magic 360 Express- Visual Creator is an application that provides you with 360 different filters that will help accentuate your photos.

From blur to applying different textures, this app has got you covered to make your photos look so much better than the original.

It is currently priced below a $1 which I think is a very good deal indeed.

6.Severed

Price: $1.99

Severed

A great action-adventure RPG, Severed is a hack and slash game that is so compelling and beautiful that it has received numerous awards, including the best mobile game of the year and best handheld game of the year, and so many others.

It has a lot of great maps and the combat style is second to none. It is truly action-packed so you are going to be glued to your device for hours and hours. If that is the case, you better get one of those battery cases to give your iPhone more juice.

The game not only has amazing graphics but its sound score is also great as it truly blends in with the theme.

If you want to play the game for yourself, it is at a discounted price of $1.99 (from $5.99).

7.popCalendar

Price: Free

popCalendar

One of the highly-rated productivity apps in the App Store, popCalendar is a pretty nifty calendar app that not only allows you to put certain schedules into it but it also gives you a widget that you can place on the home screen for easier access.

You can either set it to display your presentations either per month or per year and its interface is simple that you can readily see all of your appointments in a given day or week.

The great thing about this app is that it is currently downloadable for free, so you better get it now while you still can.

8.Prime for Instagram

Price: $7.99

Prime for Instagram

If you use Instagram a lot both for personal and professional uses, then you’ve got to get Prime for Instagram.

This is an application that allows you to time your posts well depending on your chosen target audience’s behavior.

It makes use of its algorithm to pinpoint exactly when your audience is going to go online and it will then post timely images to help get their attention.

It will also find your most viewed and liked posts and then repost it for even more online traction.

The application is now more polished and its algorithm has been vastly improved for better overall performance.

It is currently on sale for $2 less and although it is not that big of a discount, I think the price is still warranted given what it can do for you.

9.Video Maker (by PSDC Creative Inc.)

Price: $1.99

Video Maker (by PSDC Creative Inc.)

If you want to record more stylish videos with the use of different filters and textures, then Video Maker by PSDC Creative Inc. is the one for you.

It is currently offered at a discounted price of $1.99 which is a nice deal. You can do a lot of things with it such as the ability to record retro-style videos, add live effects while you are still recording, and so much more.

This application should be compatible with Apple devices that have iOS 12 and above. It is often updated to ensure a seamless experience and for the price, it is definitely worth getting.

10.Focus Better: Timer and Pomodoro

Price: $1.99

Focus Better

Are you familiar with the concept of Pomodoro? Well, it is a notion that you have to focus on a certain task until the time runs out. It is actually quite effective according to numerous studies and if you always find yourself drifting to other things, then this next app will certainly be enticing.

Apple iPad Mini

I know that tablets are not as popular as they were before but some people just love that bigger screen real estate for their media consumption and productivity purposes.

If you love the Apple ecosystem, then you definitely have to snag an Apple iPad Mini that is on sale to this day. Its original price was $399 but is now on sale for just $349 which is a pretty good deal to me.

Beats Studio3 Wireless

As more and more smartphones are ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack, it is now more important than ever to be investing in Bluetooth headphones.

The Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones are sold at a discounted price from $350 down to just $289. If I were you, I’d get one today because its aesthetics, as well as its audio, quality is superb.

One of the most compelling things about these headphones is that it lasts up to 22 hours on a single charge. Not only that but its Bluetooth range is also superb and you should not worry about straying too far from your phone.

One of the best 4th of July deals that you can find to this day is the Microsoft Surface Pro 7. Its original price was $959 but you can save $260 if you purchase this before the end of the month. 

Since people are mostly working from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, getting a laptop is a must. The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is a 2-in-1 laptop which means that it can also be set to tablet mode for a much better viewing experience.

This machine is now powered by the 10th generation Intel core processors which means that you get the latest CPU from Intel.

Amazon is still selling it at a discounted price- from $199 to $169. If you are a fitness enthusiast or you just want a handy smartphone that can pair seamlessly with your iPhone, then get this as soon as you can because the deal is only good until supplies last.

Price: $80

JBL Flip 4

If you want to buy some Bluetooth speakers soon, then I highly recommend checking out Newegg’s deal on the JBL Flip 4.

It is now priced at $80 until the end of the month so it is definitely worth getting. This is a Bluetooth speaker that you can use besides the swimming pool and has a really boomy sound despite the compact form factor.

The speaker also has an IP 7 rating which means that it is both waterproof and dustproof at the same time.

If set at 75% volume, the JBL Flip 4 can last up to 12 hours which is pretty insane in my opinion.

So, what are you waiting for? Get yours today!

You know how I love the Dell XPS 13. I think it is one of the best ultrabooks that you can find on the market and if you are working from home, this is definitely one that you should consider getting.

Originally priced at $1,250, the Dell XPS 13 can now be bought at a discounted price of $999. You get an ultrabook with a premium build, a nice keyboard, an accurate trackpad, and good battery life (that can last up to 15 hours, mind you).

Nintendo Finally Adds Landscape Mode in Mario Kart Tour Among Many Others

Avatar

Published

on

Mario Kart Tour Update

Super Mario is one of the most iconic titles in Nintendo’s portfolio. This lovable plumber has been with us for so many decades and it is one of the most amazing game franchises ever.

That being said, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour last year but the thing was that it had problems, specifically with the orientation.

Thankfully, the company has now added a landscape mode to make your life so much easier.

Landscape Mode Added

Mario Kart Tour Landscape Mode

When you play Android games, what orientation do you usually put your phone in? Most often than not, game developers would force their games to load in landscape mode because it just feels natural playing them that way.

Of course, there are others that are okay with using portrait mode like when you’re playing Nintendo’s other flagship game, Pokemon Go, but for the most part, games should load using landscape mode.

That being said, when Mario Kart Tour was released in September of last year, there was one glaring problem: The game can only be played in portrait mode.

While you can still control Mario and the other characters well, the interface just feels quite clunky and the screen real estate is not maximized to the fullest extent.

Fortunately, just a couple of days ago, Nintendo has finally launched a new update that has added the landscape mode. Now, you can play this game in all of its glory.

The good thing when putting it in the said screen orientation is that the controls and the main interface change to match the aesthetic. There are now new buttons that you can press that will make your life easier.

Of course, the original controls such as swiping left and right to maneuver your carts, as well as tapping the screen to get the different power-ups are still there.

Once you’ve updated the game, its orientation will ultimately depend on how you hold your smartphone. So, if you want to play it in the new landscape format, you just have to rotate your phone 90 degrees.

It is also worth noting that when you are in the new screen orientation mode, the new left button will be for steering and the right one will be used for the different items that you will be getting during the race.

Multiplayer

Mario Kart Tour Multiplayer

The first few months of the game was kind of rough because aside from the fact that you can only play it in portrait mode, you are also only limited to playing against AI characters.

Fortunately, Nintendo released an update back in March that allowed you to play against other players all over the world. That means that by using your internet connection, you are now able to race against real-world players which makes things even more competitive.

Aside from the fact that you can play against other players now, the new update has also released a couple of new stages and items that you can use to gain the upper hand.

Nintendo’s Stride

Nintendo Switch

The company is actually on a roll here and it started since they’ve released Pokemon Go back in 2016. The game was a massive hit in that it spawned a lot of Pokemon fanatics to hunt monsters in an augmented reality environment.

Although the game is not as popular as it was before, there are still a sizable number of players still enjoying the new updates it has been getting over the years.

Mario Kart Tour is another mobile game that is worth mentioning. Sure, its release was rough because of the issues that were mentioned before, but as you pretty much know by now, Nintendo is always sure to bounce right back.

You might not like the idea of playing a ‘freemium’ game and while there are some microtransactions involved here, you can still play the game regardless if you are paying with real money or not.

It is quite popular that it is one of the most downloaded free-to-play games on both the Android and iOS platforms in 2019.

Lastly, Nintendo Switch was also a massive success. Since its release, the unique game console has had two versions released: One with better specs and one that is more portable than the original.

In conclusion, I am happy with how Nintendo deals with things. They might release a less-than-stellar product at launch but you can surely bet that they will fix things over time.

Weather apps are great because they can help tell you what weather is going to be in your area on a given day.

The problem with most weather apps is that they are pretty bland. Sure, they provide somewhat accurate information about today’s weather but it might not convince you to read everything because of the dull interface.

Well, if you want a more vibrant weather app, then the YoWindow Weather app is for you.

What’s interesting about this app over the others is that it provides you with the usual weather information today but it also presents you with an interactive wallpaper that reflects the current weather in your area.

So for instance, if it is currently raining in your state, you will be shown a wallpaper that reflects that.

If the sun is going to set and the clouds are clear, you will see the sun setting in the background whilst also providing you with more information about the weather if you want it.

Another great thing about this app is that it can certainly tell you the weather up to three days ahead so you can prepare your activities beforehand.

Nintendo Finally Adds Landscape Mode in Mario Kart Tour Among Many Others

Avatar

Published

on

Mario Kart Tour Update

Super Mario is one of the most iconic titles in Nintendo’s portfolio. This lovable plumber has been with us for so many decades and it is one of the most amazing game franchises ever.

That being said, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour last year but the thing was that it had problems, specifically with the orientation.

Thankfully, the company has now added a landscape mode to make your life so much easier.

Landscape Mode Added

Mario Kart Tour Landscape Mode

When you play Android games, what orientation do you usually put your phone in? Most often than not, game developers would force their games to load in landscape mode because it just feels natural playing them that way.

Of course, there are others that are okay with using portrait mode like when you’re playing Nintendo’s other flagship game, Pokemon Go, but for the most part, games should load using landscape mode.

That being said, when Mario Kart Tour was released in September of last year, there was one glaring problem: The game can only be played in portrait mode.

While you can still control Mario and the other characters well, the interface just feels quite clunky and the screen real estate is not maximized to the fullest extent.

Fortunately, just a couple of days ago, Nintendo has finally launched a new update that has added the landscape mode. Now, you can play this game in all of its glory.

The good thing when putting it in the said screen orientation is that the controls and the main interface change to match the aesthetic. There are now new buttons that you can press that will make your life easier.

Of course, the original controls such as swiping left and right to maneuver your carts, as well as tapping the screen to get the different power-ups are still there.

Once you’ve updated the game, its orientation will ultimately depend on how you hold your smartphone. So, if you want to play it in the new landscape format, you just have to rotate your phone 90 degrees.

It is also worth noting that when you are in the new screen orientation mode, the new left button will be for steering and the right one will be used for the different items that you will be getting during the race.

Multiplayer

Mario Kart Tour Multiplayer

The first few months of the game was kind of rough because aside from the fact that you can only play it in portrait mode, you are also only limited to playing against AI characters.

Fortunately, Nintendo released an update back in March that allowed you to play against other players all over the world. That means that by using your internet connection, you are now able to race against real-world players which makes things even more competitive.

Aside from the fact that you can play against other players now, the new update has also released a couple of new stages and items that you can use to gain the upper hand.

Nintendo’s Stride

Nintendo Switch

The company is actually on a roll here and it started since they’ve released Pokemon Go back in 2016. The game was a massive hit in that it spawned a lot of Pokemon fanatics to hunt monsters in an augmented reality environment.

Although the game is not as popular as it was before, there are still a sizable number of players still enjoying the new updates it has been getting over the years.

Mario Kart Tour is another mobile game that is worth mentioning. Sure, its release was rough because of the issues that were mentioned before, but as you pretty much know by now, Nintendo is always sure to bounce right back.

You might not like the idea of playing a ‘freemium’ game and while there are some microtransactions involved here, you can still play the game regardless if you are paying with real money or not.

It is quite popular that it is one of the most downloaded free-to-play games on both the Android and iOS platforms in 2019.

Lastly, Nintendo Switch was also a massive success. Since its release, the unique game console has had two versions released: One with better specs and one that is more portable than the original.

In conclusion, I am happy with how Nintendo deals with things. They might release a less-than-stellar product at launch but you can surely bet that they will fix things over time.
