Tilt To Live Lives up to the Name!

image

You gotta give props to a game where the enemies form a giant version of Pong to kill you. The retro-gamer gag is clearly on me, as I can't seem to survive more than about a minute and a half in this game. Tilt To Live is a well-done, and engaging enemy avoidance challenge not too un-like Spirit (see my review here). The game's difficulty seems to ramp up exponentially, and trying to squirm around and between the angry red dots quickly becomes all but impossible!



Projecting a good image - AAXA Micro Projector Plus review

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.

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...

OS 4.0: Implications for Developers and for You

What do these 1500 new APIs give us?

The release of Apple's newest operating system for the iPhone, iPad, and Touch devices was introduced with 1500 new APIs for developers to explore. When expanding the platform, Apple identified "tent poles" of functionality necessary to support a richer app experience. The iPhone SDK 4 arrives with seven new tent pole features for users and services for developers. Much like the release of OS 3, Apple has maintained compatibility of the new OS to all Touch platforms while limiting some of the new functionality to Gen 3 hardware.


Developers receive the new iPhone OS 4 with all the APIs necessary to take their 185,000+ apps to the next level.

I reviewed Slug Wars for iPhone and iPod some time ago. The game is fun on multiple levels, but now you can go head-to-head on your iPad with To Shell and Back (get it on iTunes here) with up to 4 of your slug lord buddies! To Shell and Back (gotta love that name) completely reworks Slug Wars with all new units, towers, gameplay and a unique storyline created especially for iPad.



HandHeldItems.Com Screen Protectors

image

 I have been looking for a good quality affordable screen protector for the iPad. I wanted to add a little screen protection and get a sheet that helps cut down on the fingerprints. I did not really want to spend $25-$30 for one screen protector, because I have always had a problem putting them on the smaller devices.  I figured putting one on the iPad would put me over the edge. I did not want to throw $25 bucks down the drain and have to throw it out because I messed it up too bad. I would not mind putting a few extra bucks in to get a high quality product, because in the end it’s usually worth it. But I was not going to take a chance on this, just in case. I went to HandHeldItems.com because I know they had some iPad accessories there.
