Appzilla 90-in-1 utility app offers an outstanding and diverse lineup of applications. The majority of the applications carry out simple tasks and to fully understand the variety here is a list of a few of the applications you will find inside Appzilla: Area Code, Battery Life, Coin Flip, Cook Timer, Drum Pad, Horoscope, Lyrics and Whiteboard.
Here are three applications from Appzilla that are particularly useful:
This simple application found inside Appzilla provides useful information regarding the charge remaining in your iPhone battery. Battery Life provides the basic information already provided by the iPhone such as Talk Time (2G & 3G). Battery Life also provides more advanced information.
This information includes Standby Time, Internet Usage Time, Video Playback and Audio Playback all in hours. The time amounts are dynamic and they constantly update to provide a more accurate measurement. Testing the Internet usage time and the Talk Time I found the estimates provided by Battery Life to be very accurate although not perfect.
Fake call essentially does exactly what the name of the application says. Upon starting the application you will see several options. In the first text field you will enter the name of the person who will be calling you. You can enter a phone number or a name.
Next you will select the type of phone they will be calling you from: mobile, home, work, etc.
Finally you will either select a time for the call or have the call start instantly. The application will then create a screen effect and sound identical to a call on the iPhone. The slider works and everything as if it were an actual call, the information you entered will be displayed. The Fake call application is great alongside the Fake Text application which is also found in Appzilla.
This application may very well be one of the most useful applications inside of Appzilla 90-in-1 utility app and possibly even one of the most useful iPhone applications of all time. Safety issues aside, WalkNType will enable you to walk and type a text message or email without losing sight of what is in front of you.
This is accomplished by using the iPhone camera to display a real image behind the text. Text being written is transcribed over the image. This could also be useful when driving and texting as well, although it does pose a certain safety issue.
