What I played this week - Slotz Racer, Destructopus, and Nu!

image

This week, I discovered a slot car racing experience (called SlotZ Racer) which is about the most fun I have had playing games on the iPod touch (the developers really nailed it). Another fun distraction has been Destructopus, a scrolling smash-n-duck monster attack. Finally, not strictly under the "what I played" category, but figured I would close out with a mini-review of the social news reader called nu.

image

"Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day" is September 9th 2011. That means get your jeans, black shirts and black turtle necks ready!

How did this happen?

A few of us at iPhone Life were trying to come up with a fun and easy way to show our respect and appreciation to Steve Jobs, a man who's vision, inspiration and dedication have touched so many people's lives, and whose retirement from the role of Apple CEO marks the end of an era. 



ZooGue "Genius" iPad Case

  Zoogue’s, leather-folio style "Genius" case for the iPad is a "HOMERUN".  The Genius case is a great case with many features to accommodate the user’s needs.  This company has constructed one of the finest leather folio iPad cases to date.  It has features for most every situation.  I really liked the idea of being able to fasten the iPad case to the headrest of an automobile.  When my iPad is in the Zoogue case I am confident that it's safe and secure. 



Deep Twitter integration with iOS 5

image

When Apple announced iOS 5 in June, they said that one feature would be deep integration with Twitter. Basically, the idea is that you will be able to post just about anything from your device to Twitter with a tap. One barrier to this deep integration was that Twitter was reluctant to have other apps supercede it's own. That has changed. The buzz yesterday was a note from Twitter head Jack Dorsey to deveopers encouraging them to work with Twitter to make this deep integration happen.



iPhone Photography for Teachers

Although there seem to be a zillion iPhone photography Apps (with the number growing everyday) there's still one App that I think teachers can use on a daily basis...the Camera. As one who spent 28 years as a classroom teacher and an additional 6 as a teacher trainer, I know how handy a camera can be. Since the iPhone is with you all the time, it becomes even more important as a camera. Here are a four things I'd do if I were still in the classroom...with my iPhone and Camera.



Get on the bus! Essential Back to School Apps for Students of Every Age

image

Whether you’re looking for an app to help your pigtailed kindergartener master her first lessons, or you’re a grad student frantically sucking down coffee and pulling all nighters working on your thesis, there are some great iPhone apps that can help you accomplish your educational goals; whatever they may be. I took these few for a test drive for you and found them to be every bit as fun as they are educational. In fact, kids will have so much fun using these apps, they won’t even notice they’re doing something educational—what could be better than that?



iPhone Life Weekly Weekend Giveaways: PixCase!

Every weekend we will be raffling off  tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:



Rumor: iCloud will allow music steaming -- sort of

image

News reports early Tuesday, such as this one on TechCrunch, were excitedly saying that the iTunes feature of the forthcoming iCloud will offer music streaming. This is, of course, already available from services such as Amazon Cloud Drive and Music Beta by Google. The advantage is that your music resides on their servers rather than filling up the memory of your device. When iCloud was announced, it was download-only, no streaming.



Destructopus FREE for a limited time!

image

If you are in the market for something mind-numbing yet enjoyable on this long Labor Day weekend, go snag Destructopus: Total Ramage! (spelled that way on the AS). Hearkening back to the days of 16-bit nirvana, this Rampage-like scroller is more fun than a triple somersault cannonball off the high dive (which I hope you will attempt sober this year)! Read on for the full PR skinny, and please, folks...destroy responsibly!

iPhone 5 rumors abound, with many suggesting October 7 launch, and new rumor of thinner shape

image

Apple really knows how to stir up enthusiasm in its fan base — say nothing and enjoy weeks and months of speculation. It's extraordinary advertising, and free. By the time they announce, everyone is at the peak of frenzied interest. The rumors this summer have been all over the map. Lately, the word is that there will not be a big change in the form factor. However, a recent report says that the cases that are appearing strongly suggest the new iPhone will be much thinner. You can read more on TNW Apple.



HyperShield is Hyper Cool in Denim!

Sanho is one of those accessory vendors that makes the Apple ecosystem better.  They don't try to rip off Apple or other accessory vendors with cheap knockoffs.  They either build a better mousetrap by improving on an existing accessory or they invent something new that you didn't know you needed until you saw it!  You might know of them under their brand name HyperMac and their HyperJuice external batteries for MacBooks, iOS and USB devices.

 



Review: Splash Ball by Sergio Flores

image

I try to be extremely patient with the games I review and play as much of them as I can before writing anything down.  I guess you’d call it giving them the “benefit of the doubt”.  Sadly, that benefit ran out for Splash Ball after playing level 2 for roughly the 30th time.  I really want to like this game, if for no other reason than it takes the marble rolling game and gives it a different look, but I just can’t deal with terrible controls on a game that offers absolutely no leeway before dying.
