Welcome ApPoppa: The Review Index For Portable Apps

UPDATE @ 5/13/10: Arnold's made some changes to, but he's also looking for suggestions! What reviews are you looking for? What would you like to see featured? What changes would you like to see made? Sound off in the comments section here!

ORIGINAL @ 4/26/10: You're likely familiar with GameRankings, Metacritic and RottenTomatoes. But in this ever-expanding world of technical wizardry, we need all our bases covered.

Hence, ApPoppa, a freshly launched review index that specifically targets handheld applications for devices like Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, Palm, and Windows. You may know the launcher of the site; he sorta helped create another site, of which many of you are a part. Yep, Arnold Katayev has decided to attempt a new endeavor that should be much appreciated by the growing number of app-players in the world, and you can already see how updates will be handled. Each entry goes up blog-style and you see a list of the acquired reviews, along with their scores and a brief statement from each review. You will also get the benefit of a little video for some games; if you visit now, you'll find summaries for Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II (iPhone), Keepy Uppy (Android, BlackBerry, iPhone), Street Fighter IV (iPhone), Avatar (iPhone), Need for Speed Undercover (Palm Pre) and Trapster (Android). And as with all new sites, I'm willing to bet it's a work in progress so if you have any suggestions for Arnold, feel free to leave them in the Comments section below. As it says on ApPoppa, you shouldn't have to "waste money, time, and storage space downloading useless apps." ...that's a maxim that most all portable owners and players can get behind.

Personally, just the existence of FFII - only released on the Famicom in Japan back in 1988 - is almost enough to make me want an iPhone. What I won't do for my beloved Final Fantasy series...

I can really see this as being handy, especially since the massive number of apps and minigames is getting crazy huge.

I haven't tried any of the PSN Minis yet. No time. Too many big releases left right and centre.

Are there any Minis I'm missing out on that people here at PSXextreme recommend?

Mobile Friendly vids would be nice for this new site. I've visited it a few times, but always on my phone (HTC Eris running Android on Verizon) and the videos are choppy if they even load.
I'm always on the lookout for new cool apps/games (yea, I'm addicted, play on my phone more than my PSP!!)
Love that Arnold is doing this! Hope he has nothing but success! I will continue to support him and look forward to the next big idea!!

I got Final Fantasy II when it was remade as a part of Final Fantasy Origins for the PSOne.

Finally got around to playing it last year, and while it had a lot of advantages over the first, and the concept of a skill based leveling system is a good one, this game really sucked, and it has entirely to do with flaws in the skill based leveling system.

Want to max out your Fire spell? Well have fun, you have to ridiculously cast Fire over 1600 times to do it. Same goes for all of the other spells.

In short, don't buy an iPhone for that game lol, just find a copy of FF origins.

They should just re-release FF 1-6 as downloadables on PSN.
