What I played - Gobble edition!

image

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of my somewhat-weekly column featuring the games, apps or even gadgets I played with during the week. It's not always strictly iOS related, as last week (or was it the week before?) I reviewed the HP TouchPad, though a couple of the apps mentioned also have iOS versions. This week, it's all iPhone/iPod/iPad and all free, so if you want to get some game on this turkey day weekend, it won't cost you a cent. Bowmaster Lite brings you the thrill of the early pilgrims, who couldn't go to the supermarket to bag a turkey. Chromian Wars is a new war strategy sim game with AR features. My fav of the bunch has to be Falling Stars--quickly make funky tones/beats with this addictive and free music maker game.



Speakal iKurv Dock Review - Space age looks but down to earth tones!

image

Speakal has some of the more interesting audio products available for iPhone, and iPod. I have written about several on our blogs, and in terms of quality, have found them a decent product for the price. Maybe not in the same class as say the Sonos or iHome audio products like the iW1 we've reviewed, but they still produce a good sound. Speakal has the market nearly cornered in unique and eye-catching designs with clever features (see my review of the motion-sensing, rechargeable iPig). If you want a sound dock that simply looks good, sounds good, and doesn't break the bank, the iKurv is a good pick--which, by the way, will also push composite video from your iPod/iPhone to a TV or monitor.



Master Key – Lock, Protect, and Manage Your Info App Review

image

 

There are millions of protective apps that are on the market, but only a few of them are actually effective.  Master Key – Lock, Protect, and Manage Your Info is an app that provides exactly what it states.  Since digital has become the way of life; passwords, pin codes, credit cards, passport information, and many other things vital to know.  But, you can’t be expected to remember it all!  This is why storing it somewhere without fear of it being seen is very important.

The Cdock is an elegant dock that would make Steve Jobs proud!

image

Steve Jobs was a fan of Dieter Rams of Braun fame.  So is Jonathan Ive, head of Apple's Design team.  I think they would both be proud of the Cdock, which encloses the beloved iPhone 4 but doesn't obstruct the phone's design.  Instead, the Cdock complements the iPhone 4, with several different design options, specifically black, white, brushed aluminum (or as Ive would say "Aluminium") or walnut.  Any of these would look right at home in the Apple store.  Indeed it makes decided hard.



Rumor: iPhone 5 with 4-inch screen coming next June

image

A post on iLounge says that their most reliable source for inside information is saying that the iPhone 5 will be coming next June and will have a 4-inch screen. You can read more on iPhone Savior. The post says that the new iteration will no longer have glass on the back, probably replacing it with aluminum. The larger screen will increase the length of the phone by 8mm.

The best iCade / iControlPad games Part I

image
I've always liked ­playing on my mobile devices, even back in the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile / Palm OS days. They revitalize me quite a lot, particularly after a hard, exhausting day.

Playing without physical controls (buttons), only using the touchscreen, is pretty hard. This includes a lot of game types, particularly ones where quick direction changes are needed and / or you can't make the smallest mistake and must be absolutely sure even the smallest movements on the directional pads (D-pad for short) is registered. In games like these, physical D-pad / button feedback is of extreme importance.
