The only drawback that I could find to Firemint’s Real Racing is the iPod’s small screen. The game graphics and special effects are so good that I was wishing I could play it on a much larger screen. The sights, sounds and detailed racing scenery are all exquisite. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Read more to find out why you will want to grab this fabulously intense racing game with on-line leagues, YouTube video syncing, WiFi head-to-head action and more.

I wrote about winning (and losing) virtual fortunes in the summer issue of iPhoneLife magazine - available now at newsstands and bookstores. I'd won a measly quarter-million or so at the time. By the time the article was published, I was up to $1.5 million in poker winnings alone.
Now, thanks to iTunes, that million+ is gone, all gone. A few days ago I fired up iTunes and hooked up my iPhone to buy a new app and it told me there were apps it wasn't aware of. I said OK at the next dialog box and watched in horror as app after app was removed. They were gone before I could stop it.
1. Web browsers:
a. Version 1.6 of iCab Mobile out with a lot of goodies. A definitive must if you need absolutely the most useful iPhone Web browser.
b. I’ve reviewed the current version of Bolt. (Not to be mistaken to Bitstream’s much better non-iPhone multiplatform Java title also carrying the same name.) Nothing to write home about.
2. IM: the Push-enabled, free Yahoo Messenger client is out
3. Tuners: Tuner2 is out, with some minimal changes (but, unfortunately, not radical ones, which means I still don’t recommend it as heartily as FStream, ooTunes or, in cases, Pocket Tunes Radio).
A friend who uses one of the most expensive apps I've seen (iBird: $30) sent me a photo of his new iPhone 3Gs. He had to protect his investment, of course, so he ordered a new skin from SkinIt.
On this site you select your device (in addition to phones, they offer skins for laptops and more) and then pick the image you want. There are many pre-designed images for $14.95, but my friend Mike created his custom skin by uploading a photo.
With the SkinIt customizer you can resize and reposition your image, front and back. The company claims it offers the strongest skin on the market.
Jamendo, a free application released earlier this summer gives you streaming access to more than 21,000 free music albums and over 200,000 tracks. Jamendo is the top site in the world for free and legal music downloads, with all music made available under the Creative Commons licenses. This video gives a good overview of the application. The service offers five categories of music: Electro, Instrumental, Jazz, Lounge, and Pop.
There are 4 upcoming developer events, two at the end of this month in Silicon Valley, one in Denver in September, and one in Boston in October. Each has a different flavor to it. Two are from highly respected publishing companies, another specializes in technical conferences, and the other is a non-profit annual get-together. Here are the conferences in chronological order:
Due to real life setting in, the developer has put the App-A-Day project on temporary hiatus. I think this is a good thing, as it will hopefully give him time to reconsider where he's really going with this. Maybe you'll agree with me after reading my review of his latest effort, Ultimate Dungeon.
Okay, I agree — it's clearly a matter of opinion and taste what constitutes the best games out of the 6,000 in the App Store. Still, reviewer Mike B at Koku Games is pretty confident that the seven he's identified are among the best. His three-minute video review gives you a nice glimpse of the range of iPhone games — and a sense for which ones you might like to try.
