Clip Ninja Review

Clip Ninja Review

Feb 6, 2012

I love my phone; it’s with me everywhere I go. To be honest though, I am the world’s slowest phone keyboard typist. This is fine until I make a mistake and delete an entire email, long text, or awkwardly long URL; ten minutes wasted. Since installing Clip Ninja the amount of time I have saved retyping is immeasurable. Even if my typing speed never increases, I can still save precious time.

Clip Ninja keeps a record of everything typed on a phone in any application. The user can then copy the data to the clipboard and easily paste it elsewhere. Sounds pretty basic, right? There is more. Clip Ninja allows users to save snippets as “favorites,” filter messages by application, editing and create entries, and has unique sharing option. To top it all off, Clip Ninja gives the user complete control over security. No need to worry about passwords or personal information being stored on the phone or elsewhere.

Clip Ninja has an intuitive user interface and is quick and responsive but what really makes it a truly amazing app is it’s security features. The user has complete control over which applications Clip Ninja records from. The blacklist feature allows the Clip Ninja to ignore specified apps, like banking apps. Additionally the user has the ability to manually delete specific entries or set the program to clear its history automatically. Security is enhanced by only storing history natively; Clip Ninja does not even request Internet permissions upon installation.

When I think “what would improve Clip Ninja?” I do not come up with much in terms of functionality. The program runs smoothly and I have not encountered a single glitch.

Overall this app is amazing. The amount of time and frustration saved in the first day of use was well worth the purchase. How much is your time worth?

Go on ahead and reread that title as it may have come across as Good Morning. Done? Good. Now if you go to the website for this app there is a long drawn out explanation of how this app developed from “serious clinical research” and how it will also make a great theft deterrent. I am here to tell you this is all hogwash. No seriously, there is clearly no clinical research involved here and if this makes a would be thief embarrassed to pick up the phone, well then the owner will also have to deal with the same embarrassment and thus negating the anti-theft properties.

So what does this app do that deems it worthy of $1.50? It moans. Not only does it moan, but there are oodles of tape recorded 1970s porn stars expressing their sexual climaxes to choose from, because you know one variation is just not enough. There are several ways to get activate this app, including using the accelerometer to detect movement which then makes the phone get all hornball like and start yelling in ecstasy. Heck, even the description claims this will help in letting the “smile spread on your face.” If that is all it takes to get someone off, well they may want to look at other cures for their..frustrations.

Really developers, is this really worth the time and effort? There are plenty of websites that have moaning, and they include high quality video. Are people so frustrated with their lives that they need to have their phones provide a fake orgasm for them? Just think, the tailgating clown doing 80 MPH down the freeway just might be listening to his phone with this app. I shudder at the thought.

The final blow, seriously,no pun intended there, is that this app costs money. Sure it maybe a mere $1.49, but those even interested in this app have better outlets for their money. It is time to stand up and demand better apps!

HexDefense Review

HexDefense Review

Mar 2, 2011

HexDefense is an open path tower defense game, where your goal is similar to other tower defense games – that is, you have to construct towers to take out enemies that spawn from reaching your goal. The difference is that there’s no set path that they travel upon, the levels are set upon a hexagonal grid, and part of the challenge comes from not just erecting the proper towers to stop the enemy waves, but from finding the correct layout to use. The enemies follow what is automatically the best path, so you have to try to elongate their path as much as possible to keep them away from the goal, and to do even more damage to them. By the way, you can’t get smart and just erect towers to block the path – the game makes you fight fair.
