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.



New iPhone Life Blogger Introduction

This is my first blog for iPhone Life, so I thought I would introduce myself. I'm a freelance writer, wife, mother, homeschool veteran, and college student. I'm a baby boomer who loves technology and I've been a Mac fan since 1981. Currently, I'm at OSU-Tulsa finishing up a degree in Journalism.

I write several blogs. I Twitter and Facebook and maintain two Web sites, all of which I love doing; but I'm really excited about adding this blog for iPhone Life because I LOVE the iPhone! 



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.



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



Rumor: AT&T may lower monthly plan by $10

TheStreet.com is reporting that AT&T may lower the price of their monthly service plan to $59, down from $69. The announcement would coincide with the introduction of iPhone 3.0 on June 8 at their developers conference. The rationale is, of course, to broaden the base of iPhone users by making it cheaper.



Panorama with Panolab

I’ve been tinkering with photo apps lately and came across a really excellent app for stitching together your iPhones photos into a panoramic scene, PANOLAB’s free app has a lot of utility with a pretty straight forward interface.  You can load existing photos or just snap photos on the go then piece them together, rotating them with finger movements on the screen with excellent control.  When you get the images aligned just the way you want them, you can then crop and save them.
