warship-solitaire-app-banner

Warship Solitaire reimagines the olden days of playing Battleship in the family-room of your childhood home and brings it full circle to the digital age. Have you ever tried your hand a Sudoku? What about Solitaire? Warship Solitaire is a combination of Battleship, Sudoku, and Solitaire that is sure to challenge your thinking while maintaining that addictive edge of modern iPhone gaming.

Gameplay is simple and straight forward with Warship Solitaire. Your playing field is a grid system, similar to Sudoku, where you have numbers outlining each column telling you how many pieces are allowed in it. You then have to cross match all of the playing pieces with the column numbers to find and sink the battleships that are hidden on the grid. This is where the Battleship portion of game play comes in. You have to find one three-piece ship, two two-piece ships, and three one-piece ships. The solitaire portion of the game is that you can play this all by yourself, you don’t need another person to play with.

Taping once on a grid point will mark that off as water and tapping twice will mark it as a ship piece. If you tap once and drag you can mark off multiple sections as water and if you tap twice and drag you can mark off multiple sections as ship pieces. If you get stuck while matching you can always use the hint on the left side of the playing field to show you a random move. Be careful though, the hit could reveal a piece that you have already placed so you them only when absolutely necessary. Once you have all of the right pieces on the grid you will beat the level and advance on to the next stage. Each stage is more challenging than the previous, get ready to be stumped and challenged!

Warship Solitaire is optimized for iOS 8 and will work with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Best of all, Warship Solitaire is optimized to run on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, so if you have one of the larger devices you can experience all of the beautiful HD assets on your device.

Penquills

penquills-app-banner

If you’ve been looking for a creative way of using your handwriting as a keyboard then Penquills has got you covered. Penquills is a revolutionary 2-in-1 custom keyboard for iPhone’s and iPad’s running iOS 8. Penquills combines single character and whole word recognition inside of one powerful and easy to use keyboard.

To enable the use of Penquills you will have to set it up as a keyboard in the system settings of your device. This will allow you to use Penquills as the default keyboard of your device, if you should wish to do so. Keep in mind that you will have to give Penquills full access to your device so that it can create and keep track of your user dictionary, this is something that all third party iOS keyboards require.

To use the single character input method you will have to hold your device in portrait mode. This will allow you to handwrite single letters, symbols, or numbers one at a time to create your words. Penquills will learn how you communicate with others and will predict words above the keyboard that it feels that you may use. You can change how quickly Penquills will allow you to write in individual letters in the Settings of Penquills, by default it lets you input within 2-3 seconds after each character is recognized.

If you are wanting to write in words instead of just characters at a time you’ll have to rotate your device into landscape. This will convert the keyboard into a whole word recognition mode where you can write multiple words at a time to formulate your sentences. This makes texting or jotting down notes much faster and easier, in my opinion, than using the single character method. This is where adding words into the custom dictionary in the Penquills settings comes in handy because as you’re writing Penquills does its best to ensure what you are writing is actually what you are wanting to input and will input the closest match to what you’ve written.

Penquills brings the feel of writing on paper to your iOS device. Make writing more personal, download Penquills in the App Store.
