iAlbums for iPhone

image

The new iAlbums app was designed to bring back the experience of buying more than just a song when you purchase music.  In the past when you purchased music it would typically come with the CD (or tape or record) along with a bunch of information about the song and the artist.  Since people began using programs such as iTunes to download their music they no longer got any of these extras.  They just get the song to play in their mp3 player.  While the music is the primary reason people like purchasing songs, it is much more enjoyable when they get the full experience.



Review: Twist N' Catch by Okugi Studio

image

For starters, this isn’t another Angry Birds or Bejeweled clone, so that’s a bonus.  Twist & Catch is actually a nifty little puzzle game with a bit of a… well, twist to it.  There are plenty of levels, and with a three diamond ranking system you probably won’t beat the game in an afternoon.  Be warned, though, that you will get hooked and quite possibly want to chuck your device at a wall sometimes.

MWC Report I: Now Apple has some serious competition: the new Nokia phone and the Samsung Note 10.1

image

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.

Vikersund Ski Flying App Review

image

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.

Review: Diggin' Dogs by Chillingo

image

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 Review

image

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.



Your iPhone Camera: Helping You Find Your Car and Other Cool Stuff

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?
