Web PC Suite - File Transfer - Android Featured App

Web PC Suite - File Transfer by GeekSoft - Android Featured App 

Web PC Suite - File Transfer - Android Featured App.  Anyone who uses his Android (or even Apple!) smartphone for anything more than just making calls will come, sooner or later, to the problem of transferring files between a desktop computer and his or her smartphone. That's universal. Whatever you do, work, or play, you'll need to transfer files.

We may need to transfer files for work purposes. We may want to download our music library to our new and shiny smartphone. We may need to transfer our photos from our last trip to Nevada Falls or from the last visit with the grand kids. We may need to transfer videos we made on the smartphone for the desktop to prepare them for editing. We may need to transfer a great pic we found to the smartphone to serve as homescreen wallpaper.

So, what are our options? None of them are really good, as matter of fact. The simplest is to plug in a USB cable and connect the PC to the smartphone through it. The drawback is we don't always have the cable with us and anyway, it is a clumsy solution that makes the smartphone's operating system to unmount the internal smartphone storage anyway. We can use email to send files back and forth but this solution is even more clumsy and not practical with large files. We can also use cloud storage as an intermediary but this solution is also clumsy and may be expensive in terms of our data package. 

We would like to introduce a solution from GeekSoft called Web PC Suite which was made just to solve this problem, of connecting PCs to smartphones.

What exactly does Web PC Suite do? Quite simply, Web PC Suite sets up a connection through WiFi between the desktop in question and the smartphone. Then, the app lets you organize and transfer files of any size between the desktop and the mobile device, if they both reside on the same WiFi network. Web PC Suite has a lot of nifty features and one of them is working with any kind of desktop with any kind of operating system, simply and easily, just because Web PC Suite does not need any kind of installment on the desktop side. The desktop just has to browse to a given address with its browser and then through the web interface, Web PC Suite works its charm.

Well, what features does Web PC Suite have that make it special? We already mentioned the way the desktop that connects to the mobile does not need any software install and everything is done through a web interface. In addition, the files transferred and the connection itself are encrypted, so there's no problem sending your files through the air on WiFi. Because of the web interface, Web PC Suite can work with any kind of desktop, be it Windows, Apple or the various brands of Linux.

In addition to this app providing a full file manager functionality in which the user can freely browse, organize and move his files, Web PC Suite does not have any file size limitation, a fairly common problem when wanting to upload a video file from your mobile to your desktop. 

This app's interface has been carefully designed to provide everything that is needed in a file manager and transfer utility. Media files can be directly consumed through the web interface and text files can be easily read. Features such as multiple select, drag and drop and everything else we need is provided right there by Web PC Suite.

Web PC Suite gives a complete solution to the problem of synchronizing files between a mobile device and a desktop through the WiFi network. This is one of the apps we love, because it is designed to solve every facet of the problem of file transfer and to make life easier for the users.

File Expert with Clouds by GeekSoft - Android Featured App

File Expert with Clouds by GeekSoft - Android Featured App 

Android smartphones, as lovable and easy to use as they (mostly) are, have several important functions. Mobile gaming center. Mobile office. Mobile entertainment center. Mobile communications center (this does not only mean the ability to make calls but also the ability to send and receive messages and SMSs, send and receive emails and media files, online chat and of course, video conferencing). The reason we mention is that for three of these uses (i.e. office, entertainment and communications) we have to use files. 

We use files for documents to read and write, videos, music and pictures to consume (i.e. watch ...) and various other media files to communicate, if it's a video of the grand kids to granny or the presentation with annotations to the boss. In all these cases, we work and store files. It it inescapable. And this is where our problem starts. 
We have media files. We have work files. We have media files for work. We have media files for our own entertainment. We have files that we sent to received, if its a PDF copy of a bill receipt to the page views of our site. To make matters worse, we can store our files on local smartphone drives. Or on expansion SD cards. Or we can access several types of cloud storage. To make matters even WORSE, we can store some files on our tablet, others on our home computer, a few on our work laptop and we must not forget the files we left on our old smartphone before we upgraded.

Anyone feeling dizzy yet? Great. Because this is the perfect time to introduce File Expert with Clouds by GeekSoft.

What exactly does File Expert with Clouds do? First of all, File Expert allows you to manage all your files in an easy and convenient way. The app can transfer files from your smartphone memory to the SD card, between devices by using all kinds of interface protocols starting from WiFi to Bluetooth to NFC. The app can also link to cloud storage and it allows you to backup and retrieve files from cloud storage.

But there are other apps that do that. What is the distinction of File Expert? The interface. File Expert allows you to organize your files in tabs and categories, starting from videos and pics to other categories the user can add as he or she see fit, starting from grocery lists to income tax documents. Everything goes. Of course, this makes managing, finding and using your files much easier, no matter where they are.

Another thing File Expert specializes in is searching. Now matter how well we organize our files, there is always the possibility that a file will go missing. File Expert's search feature allows the user to search folders, storage types and devices, including cloud storage to find your files. This is a VERY important feature to anyone, whether they want to find a particular song or last year summery presentation for the boss. 

The features we liked the most was Quick Connect, that allows you to connect to a friends mobile device to upload and download files and the ability to see pictures as thumbnails, which is a very useful feature most android file explorers lack.

So, to sum things upp, GeekSoft has made an almost complete file explorer, one that allows the user complete control, transfer and indexing capabilities to his or her files, including the all important feature of searching when even the folder and category system fails. In our opinion, File Expert is a must for all serious mobile users.

Laserbreak Laser Puzzle - Android Featured App

Laserbreak Laser Puzzle by errorsevendev - Android Featured App 

Puzzles are one of the most popular types of games available for Android Smartphones. They are usually short, they make us think in order to solve them and you have fun trying to outsmart the ones who made the puzzles AND your friends who also try to solve the same puzzles. The pleasure of carrying an unsolved puzzle with you for hours or days when suddenly the solution pops up in your head is great.   

However, puzzles are a dime a dozen on Google Play and puzzles now have to have something in addition. Something new. Something exciting. Something original that will surprise the player and make him or her experience something new. An new type of riddles that hasn't been done before. In other words, making good puzzles has become much harder lately.  

That's why we were so glad we stumbled upon Laserbreak Laser Puzzle, as it is really something new, a new type of puzzle the likes of which we haven't seen before. This app is really deceptively simple to operate, but quite challenging as a puzzle. The idea behind Laserbreak is quite simple. Aim a powerful red cutting laser to blast, hole, drill into stuff to get a physical reaction of things to solve the puzzle.

So, with this all powerful laser we have to decide what to burn or hole to get things to move. We might destroy a barrier in order to release a ball that rolls along a complicated course to reach its destination. We might use mirrors and reflective objects to make the laser beam bend around obstacles. We can make things explode, burn, crumble, turn to ash and much more. And that's all the fun.

The sheer amount of things and objects to interact with makes this game interesting. We have TNT, balls, wormholes, elevators, barriers, mirrors, tunnels and many more devices to use, burn, explode and drill to get things underway. Of course, everything behaves according to a strict and accurate physical model, which makes the puzzles more realistic and more challenging.

To sum things up, Laserbreak is a new kind of puzzle for Android smartphones. Its originality, physical model, the richness of choices and the amount of objects we can interact with in any level makes Laserbreak a very worthwhile puzzle game. Last but not least, the developer has included 60 puzzles in the basic game and more are coming in future updates to make this game keep challenging us.

SteamPunk JetPack Cosplay Race - Android Featured App

SteamPunk JetPack Cosplay Race by RoceanOne - Android Featured App 

Android Smartphones are mobile entertainment centers. It is not important whether they are planned to be this way, but today it is a fact more people than ever play games. There are (broadly speaking) two types of android games. One type is the long, complicated game that needs a lot of time and usually a large screen. The other type is the fast, quick game that needs just a few minutes of the player time and plays on every smartphone.   

The second type of game, the quick one, allow the player to have fun and enjoy himself or herself even when all he or she have are 3 minutes while waiting for a bus, 5 minutes while waiting for an appointment or just wants a few minutes to relax before hitting the bed at night. Usually the games of this type are arcade or actions games, simple and fun to play but they must be challenging to keep the player's interest up.  

SteamPunk JetPack Cosplay Race by Swiss studio RoceanOne is a great example of the second type of games. It is a action game where the user must race through a dungeon, flying with jet pack in a race while avoiding obstacles and fighting for powerups with many effects. There are many things that make this an attractive game, an ideal casual play game for any smartphone.

This game has a special attraction factor composed of several differing factors. First of all, it is based on steam punk cosplay. Now steam punk, the strange mixture of high tech steam powered devices is so popular because of its attractiveness, the sheer quirkiness of its devices and inventions. Anyone who saw the giant spider at the end of "Wild Wild West" will understand.

The game has four characters, each with his or her own character and profile (and slighty different behavior - but we'll let the players find this out on their own!) and they fly by rocket propelled jet packs. They don't fly by flapping their wings, floating on balloons or hovering with helicopters. These characters really fly! This makes the game much more active and dynamic.

So, to sum things up, SteamPunk JetPack Cosplay Race has a lot of things going for it, starting from really professional looking graphics, to fast and furious game play, to interesting options in a ton of power ups. "Casual gameplay", i.e. playing games for those few minutes between appointments (for instance), doesn't get much better than this.

PickCrafter by fiveamp - Android App Review

PickCrafter by fiveamp - Android App Review

PickCrafter by fiveamp - Android App Review. We love exploring games. There's nothing to it. Nothing beats mopping up a level, finding all the secret things and treasure hidden there, checking achievements ladder to really make sure we found everything that was to be found there and then experiencing the rush as we finally reached a new and unknown level to explore. 
PicCrafter is an exploring game with a simple interface but quite complex game play and large levels. The player gets to use different kinds of picks to mine his way through a level (or biome as they are called in game), searching for treasure and souped up gear and powerups to help the player long his or her way. After the player mine enough blocks of the correct type, he or she can then move to the next biome to start excavating there.

The various powerup and gear can be bought in exchange for resources or they can be found in treasure chests. The player can find fire and other tool to help him or her excavate faster. Different biomes need different types of resources to unlock, such as iron and obsidian. There are also special sets of tools and armor like the emerald set to be achieved after pretty much work and excavation.

We launched our reviewers at the app and waited for their input. Quite surprisingly, most reviewers had a good time playing this game even though some of our people are not usually overly enthusiastic about games but PickCrafter's excavation and game play was both addictive and fun (yeah, you CAN have one without the other).

Like we usually do, we'll start with the interface. The game is fairly easy to understand and play, needing only a touch or a swipe to break a brick to find the treasure or resources hidden inside it. Finding the way around the game was also easy for most of our reviewers, as was using and understanding the various upgrades, shopping for items and even the in-app purchases for the reviewers who wanted to move faster.

Our reviewers also mostly liked the graphics and visual aspect of the game. It is not space-age graphics and HD detailed scenery but the game is not about space age. It is a game of mining and delving deep into things and the graphics have obviously been carefully tailored to the game's theme. Space age graphics are often quite tiring after a while but our reviewers reported that even after hours of play, they did not experience any tiredness. 

Like we said earlier, the vast majority of our reviewers found the game soothing and fun, even after hours of play. The game becomes quite challenging as finding the right resources, such as 750 blocks of obsidian to unlock the Nether can be quite hard. Nevertheless, our reviewers mostly stuck with it, using any spare moment to mine for the missing resources.

The various power ups were also generally liked by our reviewers, both for their effects, like the fire and the ease of mining it grants and the various tool and armor sets. According to our reviewers, the placement of the various power ups was just right, not too common to take away from the challenge and not to far away to make searching for power ups frustrating.

In conclusion, our reviewers liked this game. It is not a fighting or war game with exciting, rings and bells but kinda like a simulator of life, of hard work, of achievements and striving to make one's place better in life. It is addictive and perfect to play when a few more free minutes are available between meetings, appointments and work ... Perfect for casual play. 

Of course, if the player has the time, immersing oneself in the world of PickCrafter is all that more enjoyable for the lack of monsters and battles, which is a fresh approach in our violence laden society these days.

  • Score: 4.5. An addictive game perfect for casual play or serious gaming for those who have the time.
  • Description: A mining game where the player has to mine for blocks and specific resources to more between levels, or biomes.  
  • Good Points: Good solid game. Lack of violence. Great resource system. Interesting and varied powerups. Advancements system of biomes. Optimized graphics. Not too difficult.
  • Bad Points: None really. We would have liked to have a more elaborate exchange system. Perhaps a multiplayer system would have been welcomed.
  • Experience: The game's interface is simple and easy enough to understand, making delving into the game quick and effortless.   
  • Longevity: The addictive and fun nature of the game insured people continued playing for a long time. Mining is fun!

Scrabble Cheat - Android Featured App

Scrabble Cheat by Marc John Donaldson - Android Featured App 

Cheating is such a hard word, sometimes. However, there are times when we want to look at the answers, or just appear smart with a ready solution to whatever word related problem is facing us now. Won't it be nice if our smartphone could solve word puzzles and anagrams when we want it to? 

We thought so too. Having a word solving app can be a great help now and then and Scrabble Cheat, despite its rather unfortunate name is a good example of an Android smartphone app that does word puzzles and anagrams like its nobody's business. 

So, what can Scrabble Cheat really do? With this app, the user can input a word and leave out two blanks, unknown letters that the app must fill. Then, Scrabble Cheat uses its many dictionaries that include SOWPODS, TWL 98 and 06, ENABLE, Words with Friends, Letterpress, Collins Scrabble Words 2012 and 2007 to find alternatives words.

One of the great things about Scrabble Cheat, besides the large collection of dictionaries for searching words, is the fact that it doesn't limit itself to the number of anagrams or word puzzles solutions it presents the user. The app will locate and present as many solutions it found that fit the puzzle in question, leaving it to the user to find and select the one he or she needs.

In order to be even more useful, Scrabble Cheat has a number of additional features that make searching a words very quick and easy. First of all, Scrabble Cheat can be a resident app that exist in the notification bar and pulling it down will instantly activate it, making searches almost instantaneous (you don't have to search for it on you homescreens or the apps folders).

In addition, Scrabble Cheat will also display the definition of each word presented, all to help us select the correct word for our puzzle. In addition, this app will also save previous searches and with its simple and easy to operate interface, it will be one of the best word solving puzzle apps we have ever seen.

Advanced Stock Screener - Android App Review

Advanced Stock Screener by Scratchdisk Software - Android App Review

Advanced Stock Screener by Scratchdisk Software - Android App Review. People who trade and otherwise work the stock market know that sometimes the catch is finding the right stocks at exactly the right time. Timing is everything, especially when it concerns the stock market. 

Advanced Stock Screener is a stock market app that aims to bring to the user exactly the stocks he or she is interested in, according to his won watch list and strategy, whether it according to dividends or whether the user is looking for high flying stocks, or even different types of cap values. 

How does Advanced Stock Screener work? With this app, the user picks or defines a watchlist of stocks divided into sectors, such as NASDAQ 100, then picks a strategy to screen the stocks, selecting between cap values, dividend values and more and then the app produces a list of stocks that have passed the screening. A tap on a stock will bring a very informative information about it, from price to earnings growth to price to book ratio, and much more. 

We had our reviewers download the app for reviews and impressions. In fact, not all our reviewers trade stocks or are interesting in stocks in general, but we even had a few reviewers who were totally new to the stock market try the app, something that made us happy since we could get opinions from experiences and newbies in the stock market business.

Like we usually do, we'll start with the interface. All our reviewers were quite happy with that, as the interface simplifies things by taking the user from option to option and concentrates only the relevant information to that stage on screen. This makes for a large number of clicks for selecting screening policy but it is VERY clear to the user. Like we said, our reviewers liked it.

Our more experiences reviewers were quite happy with the strategy building options as they were able to build strategies that enabled the app to show them the stocks they thought interesting according to their private investment policies. Of course, this is the main strength of Advanced Stock Screener, presenting the user with the stocks her or she is interested in, screening those that aren't interesting.  

All of our reviewers were quite happy both with the selection of watch lists and stock sources and the amount of information that app presents about each stock, making buying and selling quite simple since you get all the info you need and you only need to contact your broker to perform the stock market actions you are interested in. 

Our reviewers were also pleased at the amount of default screening strategies present, as they could select a useful existing screening strategy instead of building one, and more often than not, those screening strategies were also very successful buying and selling strategies, with the app indicating the interesting stocks automatically. 

The online sharing center for watch lists and screening strategies was very useful as people new to the stock market could start understanding what the professional were looking for and gain useful insights and even the professionals looked through the online strategies to get hints and clues and sometimes get a tip to look for something they haven't thought to try so far.

Last and not least, unlike many apps, the makers of Advanced Stock Screener are actually listening to what their users have to say and on two occasions made changes and added some new features to the app according to their users request, without knowning they were actually reviewing the app.

In conclusion, Advanced Stock Screener is a very useful tool, with a simple to operate interface that serves to help both the advanced and the beginer stock market traders with narrowing down and finding the stocks that interest them.

  • Score: 4.6. A very solid and useful app.
  • Description: A stock screener app that searches pre-selected sector divided stocks from watch lists to find stocks that meet criteria defined in user strategies.  
  • Good Points: Saves a lot of time by automatically searching sectors for the right stocks. User defined strategies. Simple interface with data presentation optimization. Online strategy sharing center.
  • Bad Points: A few reviewers would have liked to see trending as a technical filter.
  • Experience: Our reviewers found using Advanced Stock Screener very easy and intuitive. It took some time for some to find the strategies that they wanted, but that's more an issue for their private investing policy rather than an issue with the app. 
  • Longevity: Most reviewers found this tool very helpful and would continue using it, especially with the developers' commitment to adding new features.

Roamy - Travel Roaming App - Android Featured App

Roamy - Travel Roaming App by Simple Solutions / Roamy - Android Featured App 

Android Smartphones are great mobile offices, mobile entertainment centers and of course, great media centers. But the thing we like the most about the smartphones are the apps, and especially the apps that allow us to save money. What good does technology bring if it cannot save us our hard earned money?

Good money saving apps select a niche and find a way to save us money in that niche. The niche we would like to present here is our traveling roaming charges. Everyone knows what these are. When traveling, our smartphone connects automatically to other carriers and then we are forced to pay for data roaming charges a lot more than we pay with our native carrier. 

We can select not to talk, or just send SMS but various apps constantly send and receive data from the Internet, like our email programs who constantly ping and are pinged by the email servers to notify and present new emails, for example. So, just not using email would not be a good solution.

Just in time comes in Roamy - Travel Roaming app which has a clear goal in mind, controlling our data charges when traveling. 

Like we said, just not using an email program would not be enough since it constantly sends and receives data. This is why Roamy clearly displays how much data each app sends and receives and then we have the option of selecting to disable that app's ability to send and receive data through the Roamy interface. For instance, email should be left intact while Google Play should be disable during out trip.

But even apps we need should not be left to run wild, because even an email program may try to download a huge 25 MB file without us noticing, and then we would have to pay a small fortune for the roaming data costs for the latest flower display presentation from our mother, for example. This is why Roamy allows us to set limits on the data usage of every app, limiting it to a certain value of MB to use and no more, a feature which no Android OS has, even the latest ones.

Finally, Roamy can also be setup to display exactly how much money we owe the roaming carrier by inputing the costs and the app calculates the effective charges based on your current roaming data usage.

So, Roamy is a complete solution for our roaming data problem, end to end.

Left Turn Otto - Android Featured App

Left Turn Otto by MathNook - Android Featured App 

Sometimes the simple things are the most challenging and anyway simplicity has its own attraction. Left Turn Otto is kind like a snake game with a few added twists and turns (excuse the pun) which makes it much more interesting than it first seems.

Left Turn Otto by MathNook that also developed the apps Math Balloons and Slice Geom is a maze solving game in which the character, an otter (but not a beaver!) must reach its destination by only taking left turns. Of course, the challenge comes from the fact that sometimes a right turn must be taken to solver the maze and this requires the player advance planning and good spacial geometry sight to solve the different mazes.

Okay. Platform and maze games for Android smartphones are pretty common on Google Play, so what makes left Turn Otto special and different?

Since we DO like things which are strange and different, let's start with the most obvious fact that our otter can only turn left. We already mentioned that this simple fact creates a very interesting challenge because you have to plan ahead for any right turn you have to make, or our otter won't be able to leave the maze. Of course, the challenge rises rapidly as the player and his or her otter advance through the various levels.

Another interesting feature is the retro graphics, almost 8 bit in shape and feel. These simple graphics make the game playable even on smartphones with a smaller screen and they induce a different feeling than regular, space aged graphics. The player, even those too young to remember true retro graphics, is immersed into a different feeling when playing Left Turn Otto. It's as if the race of life is suspended for a few moments while playing this game.

Last but not least are the game's special features, starting from a hot seat two player game mode where the players hand over the mobile from player to player to special tools like teleporters, axes and different difficulty settings, from easy to a very challenging hard mode. There are even video walkthroughs for the time the game gets REALLY hard.

All in all, Left Turn Otto is a maze solving game with retro graphics, challenging mazes and quite an original concept.

Satisfi - Android Featured App

Satisfi - Android Featured App 

The customer is always right. This is not just a proverb, but for smart businesses it is a way of life for a lot of reasons. A business who hears what its customers say is a business who can learn what problems it has and what it needs to repair in order to improve. A business who listens to its customers is a business who has a better chance of thriving.
A customer who reviews a business is also a smart customer for several reasons. First of all, if you care enough about a business to write a review about it, then you have a chance of your review been read, acted upon and then your experience as a customer will improve. Secondly, the mere fact of writing a review and pointing out problems and things to fix usually makes a customer feel good about himself or herself. This is another reason why smart businesses would listen carefully to what customers say and implement a way for customers to be heard.

These are part of the reasons why we are glad to introduce Satifi, an app that allows a customer to communicate anonymously with the senior management or owner of a business. 

Satisfi is a very simple app to operate. A user who has a message or review to communicate to the management or owners of a business just has to open the app, input his current position and select the business he or she wants to communicate with. Of course, Satisfi pledges to keep the user's identity completely anonymous and not reveal it to the business being messaged.

Anonymity is one of the most important features Satisfi has to offer because it protects the customer or person who had communicated with the business. A business has to receive completely truthful reviews and messages in order to learn and benefit from them and the fact that Satisfi guarantees that anonymity insures that the reviews and messages being sent will really be truthful. Of course, the app can also be used by a business to receive truthful messages from its employees and not only customers. 

The interface of Satisfi is as simple as possible because in our modern day and age, an overly complicated interface would make customers think twice if they want to invest the time and write a message. After selecting the business the user wants to message, a simple option menu opens up where common problems and things usually messaged are displayed.

Satisfi is a app that was needed and we are glad someone thought of the idea and developed it. A world wide distribution of this can really help make our customer experiences that much better.

Satisfi - Android App Review

Satisfi - Android App Review

Satisfi - Android App Review. Every one of us is a customer. There's no one who doesn't need to buy a product or service from time to time, except those people who wear loincloths and swing through trees and even they need to buy their loincloths or to buy the tools to make one, at the very least. 

Some of us are also product and service providers, sellers of goods, in addition to being customers ourselves. Whichever role we play at the moment, we always aim to make our customer and seller experience better. Satisfi is an app that aims to make that happen, and we don't need anything except our Android smartphones (or the other kind ...)

How does Satisfi work? It works on the simple principle that receiving reviews and comments from customers is the thing that can make the seller provide a better experience and products.

Of course, to make this process true and free of constraints it is totally anonymous. Everyone of us has that lurking fear that if we tell the seller at the coffee shop how to improve his service, he'll just leave us something nasty in our coffee but if it's an anonymous tip, he won't know who gave it and will not be able to retaliate, even if he's that kind of person. He'll have to improve his service.

We launched our reviewers which all downloaded the app and started working. In fact, they all just went on about their lives with the app resting installed on their smartphones, waiting for the right moment to be used.

Actually, the app provides two different kinds of service, for customers and sellers. We concentrated on the customer side of things.

Our reviewers were very happy with the speed and ease of using Satisfi. It is quite evident that if customers will have to navigate and wrestle with complex screens and menus to leave a review, they just won't do it. But Satisfi is simple and quick to operate. Our reviewers liked the way you enter your location, select the business you want to review and presto, review away.

Our reviewers all commented that the app presents a lot of useful menu items to select for every kind of business establishment, from the waitresses behavior at a restaurant to various delivery problems with a delivery service.  

Of course, our more meticulous reviewers were happy to receive a comments section at the second stage of entering a review, where they could leave a free review, not limited to preloaded menu items. Not all reviewers used this option but it is nice to have.

Another very useful feature is the ability to post the review as a social media status update. However, our reviewers found it necessary to hide their identity when giving bad reviews, which means that the reviewers will appear only on Satisfi's social media accounts. However, the reviewers had no problem with good reviewers appearing on their private social media accounts.

We received several tips from our reviewers. First of all, if a business doesn't appear on the app's business list, you can always invite it to join. For the sellers and service providers, we can only urge them to join the service (it costs some money ...) as this can be a great way to receive honest reviews about your service. If not, check the app's social media accounts for reviews about your business.

Last and not least, the app makers promise a monetary award for anyone who gets a business to join the program. A classic win-win situation.

In conclusion, Satisfi is an app that revolves around the win-win situation, where customers can leave reviewers about a service provider and the service provider can receive them and improve his service.

  • Score: 4.7. It would receive a 5 when more businesses join.
  • Description: A review app that anonymously sends reviews to businesses being reviewed
  • Good Points: A great and necessary idea! Very simple and quick to operate. Anonymous reviews. Getting money when businesses join after you invite them to.
  • Bad Points: Still not so many businesses joined everywhere.
  • Experience: The vast majority found using Satisfi to be quick and simple, even adopting the habit to leave a review whenever they use a new business. 
  • Longevity: Most reviewers would keep this app installed because it imrpoves THEIR customer experience using businesses.
