I have always been an avid fan of air hockey. Every time I play, it takes me back to a family vacation we took when I was a child. A group of us staying in the same hotel organized a tournament on the game room's air hockey table. It turned into one of those winners stays on type games...and I never left.
As you likely know, all iPhone apps must be tweaked in order to take advantage of some of the new features of iOS4, such as multitasking and the high-resolution display of iPhone 4. Now Apple has gathered some of the best apps for iOS4 in a special area of the site titled Awesome iOS4 Apps. At present there's not an obvious way to navigate to this selection of nearly 60 apps other than its appearance in the scrolling marquee at the top of the page.
The games on the App store are becoming like sand grains on the beach. There are just so many of them, that it's easy to miss good ones. There are games within games--not just a single game, but multiple games under a single app, and what's more, the games change to new ones with updates! Dreamsky has developed such an app called iGameDock. I love getting 3 games for the price of one, even if 2 of the games are kind of okay, and one of them is cool.
The Early Edition is an RSS reader for the iPad with an important distinguishing twist. While other newsreaders render new story items as unread emails, Early Edition approaches such tidbits as articles in a virtual newspaper. The application's magic is in the way it compiles news from numerous sources, formats and media types into a cohesive and very traditional newspaper look-a-like experience.
Sciphone Wallpapers (free) offers over 9,000 wallpapers in a wide variety of categories. AND their listing in the App Store promises that an HD version for iPhone 4 will be available soon.

If you have tweens in your household, particularly girls, then you already know about the Twilight saga, and they've probably already seen Eclipse, which just came out. So you should download The Twilight Saga - Eclipse Movie Game FREE right now. It's free, hence the title, and is a well-done visually appealing quiz app based on the movie.
I like MobileMe, especially for the FindMyiPhone feature (which I've used a few times) but it could use some competition, especially in terms of price. Ironically, before I became a full-time iPhone app developer, I worked for a software firm in the printing industry. We partnered with Ricoh and in that capacity, I beta tested their quanp service. Similar to MobileMe's iDisk feature, you can upload and share photos and files such as PowerPoint and PDF documents.
Ok, things aren't going quite as planned. My car was stolen this morning from the hotel parking lot. Thank goodness for my iPhone!!!
Everyone, right now, download the "Evernote" app and take a picture of your license plate, registration and insurance information. I had all my info ready! I still don't have my car, but my stress level this morning when I walked to the parking lot and saw a pile of glass instead of my car, could have been much, much worse!!

Will soon be posting up a review on this multi-game app from Dreamsky called iGameDock (grab it here in iTunes), but just noted that it is currently free in the App store (courtesy of FreeAppAday.com app). The cool thing is that it features 3 games, and when they update it, the games change...Go grab a copy now!
There's a lot to like about Seasonality Go ($9.99), a weather app for the iPad. And others must agree, because it's among the top 10 highest-grossing apps (including a stint at number 1). One of the things that sets it apart is all the different ways you can configure it. The app comes with a default interface that is itself quite effective. But you can also add additional screens, choosing from the 7 that they offer. In addition, you can create your own screens, selecting the elements that you'd like to have in your interface.
