“Isle of Wight Discovered is a comprehensive tourist guide for the Isle of Wight that includes local attractions, live music and events. Explore nearby places, shopping and entertainment.” – My Local Guru Ltd
This app has been updated recently (June 2016) and has only had under 100 installs, so we though we’d feature it to see what everyone thinks. My Local Guru Ltd have released many guide apps and their reviews tend to be quite mixed, but overall positive.
Isle of Wight Discovered provides links to a wealth of local information. If you have family or friends visiting who would like to ‘boff-up’ before they leave, then this has everything that they’ll need in one place and is highly recommended.
Brain It On delivers challenging and addictive physics puzzle games directly to you phone or mobile device. It requires the user to draw shapes and lines in order to solve each level and is deceptively difficult!
There are many levels to this game and new challenges are being added regularly. As with other apps, you can compete against friends and share your progress on your favourite social networking sites.
We particularly enjoyed the facility to replay levels, as there are hundreds of ways to complete each one.
Brain It On does offer in game purchases, but does not require them for full acces. If you are patient and collect enough stars from playing, then you can enjoy all of the puzzle packs for free.
