Whether you’re a gamer who prefers consoles, desktop gaming, of mobile games, it’s tough to keep tabs on everything that’s going on in the video game world. iGames for iPhone aims to change that by giving users the power to access tens of thousands of games with a tap of their finger.
Usually you’d expect apps that include tons of information to be disorganized and cluttered, but iGames is anything but. One of the first things I noticed about the app is that it’s incredibly easy to navigate, and first time users will be able to zip around iGames with no problems whatsoever.
I do want to mention that, despite its name, iGames is for ALL gaming platforms. That includes consoles (old and new), computers, and mobile devices. This is definitely the first app of its kind that I’ve ever seen, and I love the fact that it caters to gamers of all preferences.
The main screen of iGames features a plethora of games depending on your filter preferences. You can see trending titles, top rated games, upcoming releases, and updated games. All of this might seem a bit much at first, but users can easily tap titles to learn more about them (description, rating, etc).
Users can also quickly and easily search for titles using the search bar at the top of the screen, making it a snap to locate specific games to check ratings and descriptions. It’s easy to take search functions for granted when it comes to apps, but iGames definitely covers all bases and does its best to make sure users can find exactly what they’re looking for.
iGames includes a few useful features for gamers, as well. You can easily populate a watch list of games by tapping the eye button, which is a great way to keep track of games that you’re interested in. Also, if you’re the type to keep tabs on upcoming releases, you can add release dates to your iPhone calendar within the app.
When it comes to issues, the only thing I noticed about iGames is that ratings show up to 5 stars, yet numerical ratings go up to 10. This can be a bit misleading and confusing for gamers who are checking ratings, as a highly rated game sometimes shows only 2 stars.
Overall, if you’re a gamer who is looking for a way to keep track of new, top selling, best rated, and trending games across an impressive variety of platforms, iGames is the perfect app for you.
iGames requires iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
