I've just returned to my hotel room from the first day of MWC so that I can get ready for the MobileFocus event in the evening. I couldn't wait with sharing my experiences with you on the spot. Having little free time, however, let's start with the most two important pieces of news: the Nokia PureView 808 (a phone with a freaking good camera) and the Samsung Note 10.1 (a really decent tablet). I had some quality hands-on time with both models. Let's start with the former.

The Vikersund ski flying app is a simple game where you play as a skier who is attempting a ski jump. You tap to begin skiing down the hill and at the right moment you tap the screen to jump. The goal is to get as far as possible during your jump. You can play either single player or against someone. Single player you have to beat scores which are computer generated, of course for multi-player you are going against your friend.

Personally I would find the task of trying to pick out games to publish quite daunting. When you’re a developer it’s almost inevitable that you think your product is good (or you wouldn’t be making it) but as a publisher you have a whole different perspective on things. I’m rather impressed with how consistently Chillingo picks out winners. That’s not to say that every game they publish is gold because there have certainly been some I didn’t like, but the majority have proven to be quite fun. As you’ve probably guessed by now, Diggin’ Dogs fits into that latter category. The concepts are tried and true, but the movement mechanic is unique and the lack of a time limit actually gives you the chance to do something that many platformers don’t, which is the opportunity to explore.

Picture hangman is a new app available which is similar to traditional hangman but rather than guessing letters, you guess little pieces of the overall picture. In picture hangman there is a picture in place of where the word would normally go. For example, one puzzle solution would be a picture of a woman’s purse. Now these pictures are similar to chalk drawings, not actual photographs. At the bottom of the screen there are a bunch of pieces of pictures, also in chalk. You need to attempt to figure out which of the small pictures at the bottom of the screen belong in the picture and which don’t.

How often do you use your iPhone’s camera feature?
Do you save it for just taking pictures of your friends and family and maybe the occasional jackwagon parking job (and then running it through FAIL Maker to make it that much funnier), or do you use it for nontraditional purposes?
I’ve found ways to use my phone’s camera that help make life a little bit easier.
For example, have you ever thought to use your phone to take a picture of the lot number you’re parked in so you don’t lose your car every time you go to the mall?

The history of cameras goes back more than one hundred and fifty years. The History of Cameras App doesn't go through every aspect of it, but it does cover the highlights...in an interesting way. There are screens that show specific bits of information, such as how Richard Leach Madox perfected the dry plate. Accompanying each of these nuggets is a button that lets you see ... kind of ... how the process works. It's really a fun and very interesting App ... and it's free. If you are interested in photography, try this one for sure.

The iPhone and iPad have been extremely popular for a number of things since they came out but one thing which has been surprising by many is how many great educational uses there is for them. One type of education app which many people might never know about is those which are designed for very young children. The music color app is designed to not only help little kids learn their colors but also get a great appreciation for music. The app is set up with large panels of different colors for little kids to choose and interact with in a simple way.

When it comes to making videos, I'm one of those who just can't do it. The editing software seems like it wants me to get frustrated. I rarely take any videos because I know that no one, including me, will want to see it. However, there seems to be a possibility that this might change. Enter Magisto! It seems as though the folks who made it had me in mind. It's an iPhone App that does the video editing for you. How do they do it? Who knows...and who cares? As long as it gets done, I'd be happy. I've been doing some experimenting with it and it seems to work. I'll be uploading a video in the next few days.

The Brownie Hawkeye reminds me of the current iPhone. Why? Here are some comparisons:
1. Both are (or were) ennormously popular.
2. They both are known for portability. Although you couldn't keep a Brownie in your pocket it could be easily carried around...especially if you compare it to the view cameras that it replaced.
3. They are both very simple to use. You took a picture with a Brownie by looking down into the finder and clicking a button.
4. They both became the de facto leader in the field. Apple dominates just as Kodak did.
5. Simplicity defines both cameras.

I can't be surprised anymore at the cleverness of iOS app developers to think of great ways to further enhance the app ecosystem. Several weeks ago I reviewed a free, 3-D app finder called AppCube Explorer, which I thought was pretty darn amazing. eyeconit gives you yet another great free way to find the best apps. See an app icon on your friend's iPhone you are curious about, or maybe browsing one of the best app sites? Merely scan it's icon with your camera, and pow! Info and download links to grab it magically appear... Go check it out at the link above, or check out the video after the break!

The Stone Age game is a fairly straight forward game with a top down view where you control a cave man who is out hunting for meat. On the iPhone the controls are fairly simple with moving is done by tilting the device left or right. Attacking is done by simply tapping the screen where you want to throw a club and defense works by swiping a finger across the screen.

The Vote Me app is a new political game where you are ‘competing’ against all the other users of this app to get as many votes as possible, and eventually become the first ‘social president’. You run your social presidential campaign on any platform you’d like to attempt to get votes. Whether you use it to help promote awareness of local causes, natural concerns or just for fun, you can add in any issues you want to help get attention to yourself.

What's This App 2 is the sequel to the very popular trivia game for the iPad and iPhone. This app is quite unlike most other trivia games available today in that it is not just a matter of how much you know about different subjects but much more than that. You have to look at the clues, which could be anything from the audio playing to the picture or even the letters on the screen. Every level provides a unique and thought provoking challenge which you have to overcome. The trick to this game is to learn not to think about it like a normal riddle or trivia question.

This Valentine’s Day themed game is actually four cute games in one. While entirely unoriginal, this game is still fun. It appears that the creators of this app just put new graphics on top of other games which have been around for a while. That being said, the game is still fairly fun and since it's free it is well worth getting. The games are rather simple to play and don't require much time to learn but can still be challenging enough to enjoy for even experienced game players.
