Review: Joyland Bounce

image

There's something to be said for developers that stray from the norm, and that something is "thank you".  I've recently had the pleasure of playing Joyland Bounce from Gamesmith Studios, and despite the casual, no-die nature of the game - something unusual for a platform style game - I've been quite captivated.  Some will find the lack of enemies and ultimate destruction a turn off, but its nice every once in a while to play something with a purpose that's also relaxing.  Joyland Bounce fits the bill quite nice

Today, Apple Computer has announced its successor to the iPhone 3G. The new iPhone will receive an “S” moniker for “Speed” at the end to differentiate it from the 3G model. Many of the new features rumored to be coming did in fact make the cut for the new iPhone such as a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus and a much anticipated video capture mode, a built in compass, voice command capability, and claimed improvements for performance and battery life.

Gaming Strategy Guide: Sentinel by Origin8

Despite the low price ($2), probably one of the best Tower Defense games for the iPhone is Sentinel by Origin8. The title is highly popular; no wonder a sequel has just been announced, slated for June. I highly recommend it - apart from the repetitive in-game music, it's excellent.


How to Transfer Contact Info on Your iPhone or iPod Touch

How many times have you wanted to send someone contact information from your iPhone or iPod Touch, but you couldn’t do it? Instead, you had to manually type the information into an Email to send it or tell them the information over the phone. Big time waster!



Not awake early enough to catch the Today Show? No problem.

Do you wake up early enough to catch the Today Show? I don't. We're computer nerds who can easily stay awake until 3:a if we're not careful & dawn? It's a 4-letter word in this house. Thanks to the Today Show app, I can finally see what I've been missing during those early hours.

I love all these new educational apps for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Many of us have been in situations where we wish we had something for our children to do while waiting. These educational apps serve just that purpose.

I was recently contacted by Noel from Snappy Touch to let me know about a new software label being formed by several prominent independent developers.  Now I could ramble on in my own words about it, but thankfully he was kind enough to provide me with a press release, so here goes:
