Informant Android App Review

Description:

If you are ever in need to covertly record something, your Android Phone can absolutely be a tool you can use to record those important conversations that need recording.  The app is called informant and it is a nifty little app for anyone that has a little bit of spy in them.  The app allows you covertly record meetings, conversations, etc without anyone knowing.  There is also an option to schedule recordings in advance so you can really be discreet.  The feature is that you can record from pockets, on the table, with no visible indication, meaning no blinking lights or instant waking up up the phone screen.  Recording can also happen when paused during a phone call.  There is also an optional PIN to set in case you do get caught.  This makes it so no one can pull the information off unless they know the pin.  Obviously there are some legalities with this app, so make sure you check your local laws about voice recording that will help you to stay out of trouble recording.

This is perfect for the wife or husband that is worried about cheating as they can just set the phone to record during times when they are gone.  This is also great for a company meeting that you know where they are going to talk about you but not to your face.  This is also great for friends if you are worried is someone talking behind your back.  If you really want to catch them in the act, this Informant app is a great way to catch them in the act.

Features:

  • you can set the recording to happen instantly with the touch of the button
  • the phone will look like its off or asleep and have no visual indicators showing that it is recording anything
  • you can even schedule the recording of the app so it happens at a certain time when you know someone will be talking
  • you can protect the information with a PIN number to make sure that no one can access the information unless they type int he pin number in case you get caught

now of course, there are legalities associated with this app, so make sure you look into your local laws before you just start recording people, but it can be a fun way to be a spy.

Conclusion:

This app costs $2.49 and has been given a 5 out of 5 rating by users.

Blockx 3d Pro Android App Review

Description:

Blockx 3d Pro for the Androi app is a very fun game to play.  The app offers a very 3d, classic game with a new twist.  The ultimate 3d brain teaser type of game to keep you interested while sitting to wait for an appointment, or to play on a very long car ride.  The game offers a customizable pit, 3 block sets, and customizable controls.  Autosave and global high scores are also accessible and it offer landscape mode support for you android phone so you can see the most on the screen.

If you are a tetris lover, this is the game for you.  This game follows the classic Tetris gameplay in that it is exactly the same, except that the difference is the angle and perspective that you are playing the game.  The perspective of Blockx is that of looking down in a 3d world as the blocks get lower to the bottom of the other pieces.  This is a huge twist on the game and really makes you think in a totally different way as you play.  you now have to thing about 3d layers and how they fit instead of the 2d game play of the original tetris.

The game is like thinking about Tetris, but to the next dimension.  The game is fun, challenging, and a very addictive type of game.  The only con to the game is that the controls are a little bit confusing and it takes a moment to kind of understand how the game has to be played.  Once you kind of figure this out, the controls are not such a big deal because you can customize them to the way that you like them.

Features:

  • This is the classic tetris game but in a 3d dimension
  • allows for landscape mode for those that like to play games that way
  • gives a totally different feel and perspective on the classic tetris game
  • allows you to post your high score online so that your friends and others can see what you have accomplished
  • you know the layers are correctly filled by seeing the different colors of the blocks as they will match.
  • allows for tackpad control or touch control on touch screen phones.

This is a fantastic game with a really fun twist which you really will enjoy.

Conclusion:

Blockx 3d pro costs $.99 cents and has been given a 4 out of 5 star rating so far by other Android Users.
