There have been a number of top down racers available for iOS devices since the inception of the App Store, and one that I’ve particularly enjoyed came out about a year ago. It’s called Lil’ Racerz Pro Rally, and despite its age it has held up rather well. It might not be as fancy as the likes of Reckless Racing, but it offers lots of tracks, 10 different cars to unlock and upgrade, and some sweet “modern retro” graphics and sound. If you're a top down racing fan this would certainly be a fitting addition to your collection.
I've been using alternate browsers for some time, mainly because I wasn't at all satisfied with Safari's tabbed browsing. I've used iCab quite a bit on my iPad, and like it a lot. I've also been using a preview copy of 360 Web Browser ($0.99), with version 3.0 finally being released in the App Store yesterday. This version is optimized for the iPad.
STM has come out with their new "Skinny" case for iPad2. You can get all the detail of case in the link. They even integrated the on/off magnets in it.
Unfortunately, there will not be a similar case for the iPad 1 (I really like the looks of this one).
If you are a registered Whistle user like myself, thn you probably already received this email that they are limiting the calls to 20 minutes in length for the free users. After that, there is a small per minute fee. This does not affect me at all, as I do not use it for that long, at least right now anyway.
If you are not a Whistle user, I suggest trying this app out.
IK Multimedia, a company with the tag line "Musicians First" has recently released two products geared toward the aspiring and professional musician market. The iRig Mic is billed as "the first handheld microphone for your iPhone" and the iKlip is a microphone stand adapter for the iPad. Do these two products truly make creating and performing music easier? Read on to find out.
Update: It took about a month but I did receive my 1000 free rollover minutes. And I have not received any annoying text messages or promotions from AT&T as a result. It looks like there was no catch as far as I can tell.
Did you guys receive yours?
I ran across this new app at CTIA 2011 in Orlando. Gogobeans is a new file-sharing and storage system that lets you share content by shaking your device. They call each item you want to share (whether it's a line of text or a full-legth movie) a "bean," and each bean is the same size. The content always stays with you, and when you "share" it, you're only giving others access to it through the secure Gogobeans interphase, called "lockers."
I know there are a lot of people that believe Trinity Games is basically in the business of making cheap knock-offs of other developers’ games. The truth is that their games do tend to be derivative of other games on the App Store, and often aren’t nearly as good. You can rest assured, however, that such is not the case with Crazy John, which is why I’m bothering to review it in the first place. Some will argue that it is merely a Minigore clone, or possibly even a rip off of Age Of Zombies. The reality is, however, that the game offers more features than the first couple of iterations of Minigore (I honestly haven’t played it lately), and I find it more enjoyable than Age Of Zombies. If you’ve not been convinced in the past that Trinity Games could take a concept and make it their own, Crazy John might just be the product to persuade you.
