UPDATED! Infinity Blade II: Vault Of Tears

It was just last week that I was sharing with you, news of the impending release of the latest chapter in the Infinity Blade series, Infinity Blade: Dungeons.



Implications of 16:9 aspect ratio of 4-inch widescreen iPhone 5

image

The rumors have been hot and heavy that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch screen (compared to the current 3.5 inches). And the big question was how Apple would accomplish that, with the latest round of rumors saying the current prototypes simply add pixels to the height, while keeping the width the same. The result is that in landscape mode you end up with a 16:9 aspect ratio, just like the widescreen shape of an HDTV. So now the speculation is how that space will be used. Again, Rene Ritchie of iMore has an excellent analysis of the options -- and what it all means. He includes very helpful mockups of these options, giving you a clear picture of how a wideiscreen will alter your user experience.



iPhone Remote + iPole = cool self portraits and videos!

I've been using (and have written about) the iPole from FastCap, since I first picked it up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.  The hiking iPole model or the telescoping mini iPole both offer a tripod mount (and optional iPhone case with tripod thread) is a great way to take self portraits and include yourself in videos.  But the one downside is you have to stretch to turn on or off the recording mode.

Physics slots HD is a great slot machine simulator for your mobile device.  The free version comes with three unique types of slots, each with a progressive jackpot and multiple different betting options to choose from.  Whether you like the classic slot set up with lucky 7's, the bar and the bell, the fruit themed slots or a fun option based on playing cards, this game has it all. 



Apple testing two iPhone 5 prototypes, each with 4-inch screen

image

9To5Mac seems to have some pretty good sources inside Apple because they have quite a lot of detail about two iPhone 5 prototypes that are currently being tested at Apple. Both devices have a 4-inch screen. And as some earlier rumors have stated, the phone will be the same width but will be slightly taller, at 3.484 inches. The new display will have the same number of pixels across, but will add 176 pixels to the height, with a resolution of 640 x 1136 compared to the current 640 x 960.

What are the implications of iPhone with 4-inch screen? Developers say, Not a problem

image

Last week the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and Bloomberg all reported that the next iPhone will have a 4-inch screen. Of course, no one knows for sure, but lots of evidence is pointing that way. The main questions have been whether it would create problems for developers and also whether it would fragment the market. iMore had a lucid article about Apple's options for a larger screen and what it would mean. If, for example, a larger screen changes the aspect ratio, it means that apps would generally have to be rewritten — and that it would take a lot of work.
