 Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, when retailers traditionally make enough money to shift from red ink to black) is almost here so I thought I'd share some iPhone and iPod touch accessory deals you can look forward to.  I've used the Ten One Pogo Stylus and found it useful for many games and utilities.

Vampires Everywhere!

image

 This is one of those iPhone apps that looks simple on the surface, but is potentially useful beyond what you might expect. Yes, the app store is chock full of picture manipulation apps, but Peter Facinelli’s (one of the hit Twilight series movie stars) Vampire Transformer (by 211me.com) provides some clever pix editing tools, a good menu system, and adds social network sharing to the mix. It was indeed fun turning my wife into a vampiress...and a hot one, too if I do say so…

Got Vampire?!

With the holiday season upon us, you better be prepared to bust out that iPhone for the spur of the moment family photo and/or video. And here is a ingenius new product to help you take that perfect photo or video. The U+3G iPhone Holder from G Design LLC is the perfect accessory to help attach your iPhone to a tripod.

Convert your iPhone to a numeric keypad

With NumPad, you can use your iPhone or iPod Touch as a numeric keypad, an extended keyboard, or to annotate music. If you use a Mac with OS X 10.4 or later, NumPad does not require any additional software on your computer. The app connects easily through Screen Sharing, simply by following the directions found on the app. Windows users will need a VNC Server software like RealVNC. 



Review: Ground Effect by Glenn Corpes

image

Ground Effect is a vicious dichotomy of everything that should be right about racing games and everything that is wrong about them. It boasts some of the best track design I’ve seen in a mobile racing game to date, yet this same track design makes the races aggravating and seemingly impossible to win at times. The game encourages you to think outside the box and then punishes you for doing so. Luckily the game gorgeous to look at, has a cool soundtrack, and despite its frustrations can be quite fun to play. If you understood all that you probably don’t need the remainder of this review, but for the rest of us…



"ONLY on the iPhone"

Apple has a great head start on other platforms, with their App Store.  And it may be an insurmountable lead.  But there is still work to do.

Apple needs to create a new class of apps, specifically "ONLY on the iPhone".

As Microsoft, Google, and others target the key developers, it's time for Apple to say these our ours and you can't have them.  (Here's what Microsoft thinks about apps and how the important ones will be on every platform... http://gizmodo.com/5407068/microsofts-ray-ozzie-apps-dont-make-your-phone-special?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gizmodo%2Ffull+%28Gizmodo%29&utm_content=My+Yahoo)

 

Imagine if Apple offered key developers (at Apple's discretion) one or more of the following:



Review: Tumble Jumble by Clickgamer

image

Tetris proved to be quite an addictive game and was clearly well loved, as evidenced by the myriad of clones that followed over the years. I will unashamedly admit that I too was a junkie, but the one thing that Tetris lacked was a real purpose. Of course nowadays the developer would probably just throw in a bunch of achievements and “voila”, you have a purpose. That doesn’t really count. Thankfully, Tumble Jumble has come along to remedy the situation. It’s clear that the developers hold some respect for Tetris in their hearts, but they also seem to realize that such a game can be made with a purpose. And a couple of amusing characters, to boot!
