Big Guns App Review

With the large success of mob boss games found on the market; many developers are tapping into its popularity to create the newest one.  This includes Big Gun; a mafia style game that offers deadly missions, amazing parties, loud music, and the opportunity to run an entire criminal gang.  Of course; you are not automatically the boss when you first begin.  As with any mob game; you have to work up to being the head honcho and this particular game will have you working hard. 



Stop Motion Apps: More Fun Than I Should Be Allowed to Have

When I saw this article over at Mashable, I said to myself “I must try these immediately!”  Especially after talking about how much I use my iPhone camera in my last post! How could I not share my filmographic adventures with you, iPhone Life-ers?

So today, I have a very special treat because I have made incredibly entertaining (well, at least moderately entertaining) stop motion videos using three free apps. I had lots of fun testing these out and I’m excited to share the results with you.

I’m considering a career in animation now, just saying.



Apple News: By the numbers

image

A few numbers of note from today's Apple event:

585,000 apps, 25 billion downloaded (as noted a few days ago.)  200,000 specifically formatted for iPad!

315 million iOS devices through 2011

62 million iOS devices in Q4 2011

15.4 million iPads in Q4 2011 (they claim HP sold 15.1 million PCs in that quarter!)

362 retail stores, 110 million visitors in Q4 2011 including the bustling Grand Central store (I was there, the day a petition was submitted to improve working conditions at Foxconn.)

100 million iCloud users - Once your data is in the iCloud, it's unlikely you'll want to leave the Apple ecosystem and have to deal with transferring your iLife!  And that my friends, is why it's free!

Call My Name App Review

image

The call my name app is a great new way to not only organize your contacts so they are easy to find and use, but also find the phone number of just about anyone or any business you want.  First, when you open up the app it will have all your contacts from your phone all loaded in and easy to find.  You can use the built in search function to quickly find people by their first name or last name, which makes it a lot easier than just scrolling through like you have to on the normal phone list.

Oh My Nuts Game Review

image

Oh My Nuts is a game app which is similar in many ways to angry birds where you have to launch something across the screen attempting to hit an object.  In this game you are shooting a squirrel (out of the mouth of a pig) at a series of three stars with an acorn at the landing point.  For each level you need to shoot the squirrel at the correct angle to get all three stars and land in the proper place to collect the nut.
