In the grand tradition of the Ginsu Knife, App Genie is 27, 27, 27 apps in one! Even if you find only a handful of them useful, you're definitely getting your 99 cents' worth.
App Genie's one-screen interface displays 20 attractive icons, which unfortunately are arranged randomly rather than alphabetically. Thus, finding what you're after (like, say, the tip calculator) is more difficult than it should be.
A few of these apps (like Tool Case) have various sub-apps, bringing the total number of tools to 26. After running App Genie a couple times, you'll see a … Read more
Time Zone Calculator is an extremely basic program that allows you to calculate the time difference between two global locations. There's not much to it, but it performs the task that it's designed for.

MD5 Checksum Calculator is a bare-bones program for calculating and comparing MD5 files. While its layout leaves something to be desired, its results are fast and simple.
The program's interface is sparse, and the program offers no Help file or other instructions to guide users through its processes. Fortunately, some experimentation quickly produced a familiarity with the program's few command icons. You simply search a file tree to calculate your sum. Clicking on a specific file or program generates its MD5 sum, which is often used to check the integrity of files. MD5 Checksum Calculator can also compare … Read more
Calculation of Body Surface Area provides a simple set of tools for calculating a body's mass and surface area. While it's easy to use, it requires expert medical or anatomical understanding to fully interpret the results.
The program's interface is simple to operate, with basic controls and layout. We particularly like that the program displays both metric and non-metric units of measure. However, it lacks a Help file, which we certainly needed to interpret its complex results. Moving the program's slider tool dials in the selected body's weight and height. The program quickly calculates the … Read more
