Social Networking on the iPhone

Myspace Mobile, Facebook, LinkedIn, Fresh Feed, and Personal Assistant—all on the iPhone

It is always amazing to watch the tides of change flow through the world of technology. It seems like just yesterday, e-mail was the big new mode of communication. (Imagine! You can write a letter and send it anywhere in the world…no stamp required.) Then instant messaging came along, but now it doesn’t seem quite instant enough for many users. Social networking is the hot new technology, giving users the ability to communicate instantly with large groups of people.

As a newer member of Toastmasters International and someone who gives occasional presentations in my work, I found the Presenter Pro app to be extremely helpful. 



LOVE the new WeightWatchers App!

WeightWatchers Mobile App is everything a mobile app should be. I am currently on WeightWatchers and use the WeightWatcher’s e-tools. With this mobile app, I can now do everything I did on the Web site, on my iPhone.

When you first open the program (after you’ve registered your account), you will see a screen that shows your daily and weekly points remaining. From there, you can go to your favorites, recently added or featured recipes.

Review: Bricks Of Camelot from Donut Games

image

After a certain number of variations of a particular genre come out, you begin to wonder what else can be done with that style of game.  That’s the way I’ve felt about breakout clones for quite some time, especially since I don’t particularly care for the genre in the first place.  Then one came out called Bricks Of Camelot that caught my eye because of the slick visuals.  Once I found out that it was from Donut Games I had to give it a try.  Turns out that I have not been disappointed at all. In fact, for the first time I think I can say that I actually really enjoy a breakout style game.  There’s not really anything new in the mechanics of the game, but rather in the power ups and attention to detail in the environment that make this game so much fun.

Great Apps you Should be using, but probably Aren't!

In a sea of apps, these should be on your radar

The iTunes App Store is chock full of apps…so full, in fact, that finding the great ones can take a great deal of work. So, like an archeologist, I sifted through the treasures buried deep in the App Store and unearthed 10 jewels you probably don’t know about. These apps work on both the iPhone and iPod touch.

5 Free

In addition to the apps mentioned, there are a vast number of free apps available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The following is a list of the five free apps which I simply could not live without.

Review: Champion Archer from Pocket Monkey Games

image

 

Pocket Monkey Games is home grown gaming at its finest. The artwork may not be the best, and the game play might be lacking in some spots, but there are two things you always know about a game produced by this company. The first is that the game was made with love – these guys have a great passion for the products they turn out. The second is that they are continually improving their products. Now that the sappy stuff is out of the way, I will say that Champion Archer is a good game that has a promising future. There are just a few things that need to be tidied up to turn this from a good game to a great game.


10 Top Puzzle Games!

These games are rewarding, stimulation, and addictive

While action games seem to garner the lion’s share of attention from the hardcore gaming community, the App Store also provides a thoroughly entertaining and stimulating collection of puzzle games for the iPhone and iPod touch. In fact, puzzle games consistently deliver the best replay value of any genre due to the continuously changing playing fields generated by these games. This roundup features ten of my favorite puzzle games listed in the order of how much time I spend playing them (least to most). Every game on the list has high replay value, and the more time I spend with a game, the more rewarding, intellectually stimulating, and addicting I find it.
