The MYST app is available for the iPhone!

image

 Today, I discovered the Myst app for the iPhone. MYST was my all-time favorite game when it came out on the Mac, so I HAD to buy the app for my iPhone this morning.

I haven't spent much time on it yet, so I'll report more later; but so far, I'm impressed! The graphics and sound effects are just like I remember! It navigates easy once you learn the tricks. The help section will tell you all you need to know to get around.



Last chance to win a version of SafeWallet.!

We had a litle impromptu security-related contest this week to raffle off some free versions of SafeWallet for iPhone. An app from SBSH Software that will securely store all your critically private information.



Steppin game now free

image

The developer of Steppin has just reduced the price to — free! This game for iPhone and iPod Touch entails using your fingers as if they're your feet to navigate five levels of courses, from skipping across lilies in a pond, to traversing the face of a cliff. You use the multitouch capability of the screen to get across all five levels in the fastest time. A scoreboard system tracks your best time as well as reporting the best player of the day, week, and ever.



Amazon.com now optimized for iPhone

image

Earlier this week Amazon launched an iPhone-friendly version of its website. When you go to Amazon.com in Safari on your iPhone or iPod Touch, it automatically gives you the iPhone version (and gives you the option of seeing the PC version, if you want). This is the whole Amazon site, not just the Kindle ebook area. If you do a search, you can, just like the desktop site, search any specific area of the site, or choose just to search the Kindle area.

"Ad apps": strictly for advertising

A couple days ago I posted about "crap apps": entertaining and completely useless apps A couple days ago I posted about "crap apps": entertaining and completely useless apps that in some cases make a lot more money for the developer than serious apps. Now the Wall Street Journal has an article on what might be called "ad apps": apps whose main purpose is to promote a product.



Review: Flower Garden

image

My hope was to get this out before Mother's Day was over - at least by me - but I missed it by "that much".  Anyway, I thought I'd take a couple minutes to talk about a relatively new iPhone application called Flower Garden.  I hesitate to call this a game, because the only thing in it that's reminiscent of gaming is the need to unlock the various types of flowers you can grow.  I suppose a better classification for this would be an "entertainment" package.  In the end, though, it's really mostly one of those Zen like relaxation packages.&nb



iPhone Security Contest: Win a free copy of SafeWallet!!

image

3 lucky readers are going to win a copy of SBSH SafeWallet by giving up their iPhone security secrets. What am I blathering about? Well, I wanna know how you keep your iPhone data secure...? Not still storing passwords and account numbers in the notes application, I hope. Is your phone jailbroken? That could be a problem if it's lost, or malware finds it's way to it.
