|That said, if you stick with the app and put in the effort to figure things out on your own, there is a lot here to like.
index lets you use your iPhone to connect with friends and colleagues through the BlackBerry chat service. You can connect to any other index users you choose, or you can invite people from your contact list to start using the app.
Message status: When you send someone a message through this app, you can see when it's been delivered and when it's been read. That way, you don't have to wonder if your message went through or if the person you sent it to has seen it or not.
Channels: In addition to the chat aspect of index you can also browse through channels created by other users or even create your own. Channel feeds contain all types of content depending on who created the Channel. Some of the popular Channels include those put out by the PGA Tour, CNBC, AccuWeather, and Rolling Stone, just to give you an idea of the types of content you'll find.
Exclusivity: While all of the chat and other features of this app are useful and work well, you can only use it to connect with other index users. If you don't have many connections with people already signed up or willing to sign up, you won't get much use out of it.
This is a great app if you frequently need to communicate with other index users. It runs smoothly, and the tutorial that opens when you start the app for the first time helps you get the hang of the interface quickly. The app is free, but there are some in-app purchases available, like packs of stickers for $1.99 each to use in your messages.
Geared toward serious gamers, index aims to raise the bar for the stealth-action game genre on iOS.
ole quality: Taking full advantage of the latest generation of iPads and iPhones, index offers unparalleled graphic performance. With an immersive atmosphere and great voice acting, this is one of the most impressive games we have seen for iOS.
Inventive controls: Designing a touch-based stealth game is not an easy task. index found a good balance in the hardware's capability and incorporated it into the plot structure. Controlling Hope, our main character, requires a mixture of patience, timing, and daring.
Engaging gameplay: index's complex puzzles, engaging storyline, and convincing voice acting make it tough to put down.
Performance stutter: While impressive, the game experienced some stuttering. This is expected as hardware limitations are tested, but it can be distracting, because mobile gamers have been spoiled by years of fluid play in games that are not graphics-intensive.
Better on the big screen: index appears to be designed with the iPad's screen in mind. Attempting to play on an iPhone's tiny display leads to moments of frustration as the control precision is not all there.
With engaging gameplay, a fleshed-out storyline, and star-studded voice acting, index has certainly raised the bar for mobile gaming. It's rare to see this level of quality in a mobile game.
index is an incredibly clever app that lets you include everyone in your group photos -- even the photographer. With basic directions and an easy-to-navigate interface, index is a fun way to make sure that everyone gets into the picture.
Easy to use: index opens with a tutorial that walks you through its process, and the wizard-style interface guides you through each step as you use the app. We successfully took our first group photo with index in about a minute.
Fantastic results: index works by assisting you in taking two photos, each with a different photographer, and then melding the photos together, so that they look like one shot that includes everyone. We were a little dubious about how this would turn out, expecting things to look a little off kilter, but our group photo looked great when we were done. index's secret is that it creates an overlay of the first image that you use to line up your second shot; this ensures that everything ends up where it's supposed to in the final image. The app also includes eight filters you can add to images to get exactly the effect you want.
Limited sharing: index creates collages that include the two source images, as well as the finished, combined image, and a index watermark. In the free version of the app, this is the only image you're able to save or share. If you want access to the finished group photo by itself, you'll have to pay for an upgrade.
index is an ingenious app that solves the problem of making sure that everyone is included in group photos. Not only does it work well, it's a lot of fun to use. Although the free version of the app limits your ability to share the finished product, we think it's more than worth the $0.99 upgrade to unlock index's full potential.
Xphere is a social app designed to help you create interactive photo albums that you can share with friends and invite them to contribute to. Create new albums or add photos to existing ones, and then invite all of your friends to share in the fun.
To use this app, you first have to create an account by entering your name, phone number, email address, and preferred password. Then you're ready to start creating albums by tapping the "New Album" button in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. The app walks you through the creation process by prompting you to enter a name for the album, add photos, videos, or a song, and then finish the process by hitting "Create." Before your album is complete, you'll also have to select the privacy level you'd like to maintain. Options include secret, which requires an invitation to view and add photos, semi-private, which means that your friends using the app can view or add photos, and totally public, which gives everyone using the app the ability to view or add photos to your album. Next, you'll see a slowly rotating sphere appear on the screen with your photos distributed across its surface. You can spin the sphere faster or in a different direction by dragging it with your finger, and you can add another photo or video using the toolbar running across the bottom of the screen.
To send your album to friends who don't use the app, tap the "Text" button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, and select the people you want to include from your contact list. This app is free, and its intuitive interface makes using it a very pleasant experience. Whether you want to fully participate in the community or just make and share your own unique albums, this is a fun app to try.
