Are you the Ultimate Movie Buff? Prove it!

image

 

I admit it, I am a self-confessed movie junkie.  When watching animated movies, I love to identify the actors from their voices, and on the rare occasion when I can't place the name, I have the IMDb (Internet Movie Database) app and website close at hand.  So I looked forward to playing with Ultimate Movie Buff, $0.99, from Super Monko Studio, especially since it is billed as "dedicated to cinemaholic people"!

 



Just Jigsaw - Fun for the iPad

image

I love to Jigsaw Puzzles.  But what I don't about them is loosing a crucial piece, the dusty bits and having to clean it up after all that hard work.  Worst of all - they are not portable....you can't take them on a train, plane, car or room to room.

I have found a solution!! It's Just Jigsaw for the iPad.  It's all the fun of jigsaw without the bother.



Anttenna — free app uses GPS to serve up classifieds based on your location

image

This is a cool idea. Anttenna (free) uses GPS to let you find classified listings nearby. It's built on top of Twitter and creates a mobile marketplace for exchanging goods using bite-sized Twitter-style postings they call Anttweeting. You can also chat with people who have items for sale. As always, a service like this depends on lots of people using it, but they seem to be off to a solid start. It's using state-of-the-art social networking to facilitate local exchange.

Keynote on the iPad might encourage you to take your show on the road and present without a traditional computer.  In preparation for a talk I’m giving at the local Apple Users Group, I have been experimenting with Keynote and the M1 Micro Projector Plus from AAXA ($299 to $339 at www.aaxatech.com).

 



I Hate Sneezies - The Addiction Is Back

image

The second game I reviewed on my iPod Touch was Sneezies (published by Clickgamer, developed by Retrodreamer, review here).  Back then I didn't have a ton of games, so anything I got I kept on my device.  The problem was, while I didn't play Sneezies for hours at a time, it was still way too tempting for me to launch the game and play it for a while instead of playing some game that I was supposed to be reviewing or beta testing.  I finally had to remove the game from my iPod so I could move on with my life and become productive again.  For a long time I was good.  And then it happened.



Shredding iRig Style on your iPhone!

image

In our current print issue, I shared some examples of the unique and not un-cool ways you can use your iPhone or iPod to master your own music recordings. One of my musician buddies recently pointed me to the PRS Guitarbud, and now IK Multimedia is releasing the iRig. An audio plug adapter that turns your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch into an amp and effects system...read on for more press release info...

Appreciates focus on parenting and moms


Just a word thanking you for the work your group has done on the use of tech and specifically iPhone for parents (iphonelife.com/blogs/tracy-sebastian). It’s very solid, fun, and readable stuff... and it’s helped my wife and I better utilize the iPhone as a parenting tool... I check back often for updates!
