To tell you the truth, there's not much of a need for this app here in rural Iowa. But if you're in the market for tickets to events and entertainment, eSeats Tickets may well be, er, the ticket.
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Paul Croft, the man behind the amazing game studio known as Mediatonic. The studio is responsible for many terrific games, not only on the iOS platform, but also on the PSP and PC. I've always been a fan of the studio's games - in particular, I absolutely love Must.Eat.Birds.
The full interview is presented below.
Dain Schroeder (iPhone Life):
One of the fun things at Macworld was meeting developers and seeing demos of apps that likely would never have come to my attention. Tyler Young stopped by our booth, and I was impressed with the elegant and intuitive design of his free app Wigglehop. It's unlike other apps that show movie times, because you don’t look up showtimes with it so much as build your own custom movie listings. His demo was pretty slick.
The iControlPad is an iPhone accessory of near-mythical proportions - it's been in development for nearly two years. Multiple delays have plagued the product, but at last, iOS gamers can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as the device's creator, @craigix, has announced that orders are finally going to be taken this weekend. For anyone who hasn't heard of the iControlPad, please avert your eyes to the picture attached to this article. After soaking in the beauty of what your retinas have just observed, read on.
Everybody likes movies, and here's yet another app for streaming them to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. The free Movie Club gives you free access to over 60 movies. Naturally, these aren't recent movies, but they do offer early appearances of well known actors such as Robert De Niro, Demi Moore, Jack Nicholson, and Kirk Douglas. These may be movies that are also freely available on YouTube.
Add barcode readers, augmented reality, fax, language translation, heart rate monitor, and more to your iPhone or 4th gen iPod touch
The range of creative and practical apps that use the camera in unusual ways is astonishing. Who would have thought that you could use it as a heart rate monitor or a business card reader? There's even an app for those who are colorblind, to show them the colors present in any object you photograph.
Apple made a brilliant decision when it let developers create apps that access the camera input and use it in non-traditional ways. In this month's column, I offer a roundup of some of these apps.
For all you Robocop fans, here is an app that was recently released.
Per the press release, the “RoboCop App lets fans and users watch their favorite RoboCop movie scenes on demand, gain access to the best one-liners and audio clips, and impersonate the infamous action hero through a brand new “RoboHead” mode. For the first time ever, fans themselves can become RoboCop and watch as he mouths their own words.”
iPhone/iPod Touch Version ($0.99)
iPad Version ($1.99)
Pocket God, I am T-Pain and Angry Birds have taken the app world by storm, and I guess it was only inevitable that the real world would want their own versions.
Pocket God now has models
of their characters available for purchase. You can act out your own scenes of destruction (or benevolence) as you see fit, or just display them in a glass case, the way your grandmother displayed Hummel figurines!
