Review: Deal Or No Deal Around The World

image

If you've ever wanted to be a part of Deal Or No Deal you have three choices.  First, try and get on the show.  For most people, that probably won't happen.  The second would be to play Deal Or No Deal: Around The World on your iPhone.  The third would be to just sit in front of the TV and make comments while the show is playing, even though you know the people on the TV can't hear you (or at least I hope you know that).  If your choice is between 2 and 3, I'd opt for choice number 3.  You might be a little less disappointed.

Deadly apps for Halloween

Free Halloween Sounds  (free) is just plain fun, what it is is fifteen free spooky sound effects (bats, ghosts, chainsaws, creaky floors, etc) and a spooky soundtrack you can play in the background.  To kick it up a notch just get a mini jack to 1/4" stereo jack and plug it into your sound system for Halloween and really give the kids a fright!  I've been playing with this thing so much even my son is getting tired of it, and he's 7!

Better yet, how to make traveling fun for yourself! I found Travel Games Ultimate Edition very fun, and I’m over 18 (just a little).

The app features five games: Rock, Paper, Scissors; Slug Bug; License Plates; Find it! Pictures; and Scavenger Hunt.



Great new app for musicians

Sorry but I haven’t posted lately as I’ve been preparing my materials for tenure review here at West Chester University of PA.

But, after attending a recent conference hosted by the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (atmionline.org) I have some great new apps to share with you. I’ll roll them out over the next few weeks. Here’s the first.



Review: imPig from iPho Game Development

image

I’m not really quite sure who the target audience for this game is. With the whole “three little pigs” motif you’d almost think it was a kid’s game, but the atmosphere seems a bit violent. When you shoot the wolves with an arrow they bleed, and in the intro cartoon the pig comes off as kind of a gruff, mean protector. Not to mention the fact that this game gets tough rather quickly. That being said, it is a somewhat amusing game that will definitely keep you challenged. Did I mention it was tough?



iPhone marketshare grows! Where it stops, nobody knows!

 A new report shows Apple's marketshare of the smartphone market continues to grow, at the expense of the entrenched suppliers.

The iPhone now accounts for 30%, up from 25% and trails market leader RIM (BlackBerry) by ten points, as RIM slipped one percent to 40%.  Considering that BlackBerry includes a variety of platforms, touchscreen and non-touchscreen, and that Apple's iPod touch sales aren't included, it's clear that the iPhone platform is on its way to becoming the dominant platform for smart devices.



Yes, you can put several hundred applications on your iPhone!

image

The iPhone operating system has never allowed for listing more than 9 (SpringBoard) pages of 16 applications each, which has severely restricted the number of applications you can install on a phone. (Actually, the number of third-party apps you can display is even less as the built-in applications take up one tab – around 14-16 icons.)

The problem was slightly cured by the introduction of OS 3 this June. It allowed for both slightly more (11) SpringBoard pages so that you could see a bit more applications. However, additional programs you synchronized did not show up – even when they are there on your phone.

Fortunately, there are several solutions for the problem.
