Ask Bongo



I am currently trying out a new app that is available for both ios and google. Learning the ropes of a new app can either be easy or hard, so far this one has just had me send a text message out to who knows where. I can't see the things that it has on the picture shown on the download page so I am bit confused. The one text I did send asked for a price per question or a discount for a set of questions. 

I even restarted my phone and there are no functions for pictures or stickers, etc. I am supposed to write a four hundred word review on a app that is not even working correctly and wants way to much money to just send a simple text out to somewhere. 

At the very least I am upset but will check back every few days to see if they update their app. When things change I will be back to update everyone. This has to be the first time I have been asked to review something that is not working well, and that is not even showing the things that are on their main page which leads me to believe they may have jumped the gun on having reviewers like me check it out to report back to our own family, friends, and readers. 

As of right now I would say stay away till all the bugs are worked out and it is up and working as pictured on their download page. I am very disappointed to report that this is not what I expected at all from a company who claims to have come up with a great app. 

I would also like to state I am a free app kind of person. I don't pay for apps, and free apps I download I have never as of yet ever paid for an in app upgrade just because I am not willing to put out money on a product that will be outdated by another app sooner or later. 

You can find out more about why this was developed through Caroline Thompson. It is a very vague write up by what I can't call anything else but a flop at this time. I apologize to my readers for this but when you review items not everything is perfect or great and sadly this is one of those times when things just did not work out as planned.

Keep your Wii controllers ready to go


My husband has always been a gamer even though he took off years while we were raising our children, we kept up with most of the new systems out there. Once he fell at his job and was recovering before we found out he would be disabled he got into gaming again to pass the time. 

We like to have items that are rechargeable so that we are not throwing away tons of batteries as they aren't good for the earth so recharging packs like these from Sminiker are just the answer. This set is charged through USB which is the only thing I would change as I like things that charge by regular cord but with an adapter which we already had I have the best of both worlds. 

This set comes with 4 battery packs and a charger that can charge up to 4 remotes at the same time. Wii remote not included. Easy to set up and use and will keep you playing for hours on end. The Sminiker charger for Wii can be found at my affiliate link below.
