EA Shift 2 Unleashed FREE TODAY!

image

Man the Apps store is like going down the rabbit hole. Every time I open iTunes or go there on the iPad/Pod, I end up downloading 3 or 4 apps and ebooks I didn't know I needed (most freebies). It can trigger more impulse-shopping than a trip to Staples or Home Depot. Anyway, today EA has SHIFT 2 Unleashed up there for free, and I found that out using another freebie app called AppsCube Explorer (3-D app explorer which is cool all by itself), which I'll swing back and post up more info on in my next "What I Played" edition.

White Christmas App Review

image

Since the holidays are coming; it only makes sense to produce an app that will adhere to the jolly season.  Everlasting memories naturally occur during Christmas time and are usually enhanced by unique and beloved photos.  This is why White Christmas was created!  This is where you can take as many pictures as you want with some highlighted seasonal features that can make them more than just memorable.  In fact, it’s a great way to take a simple family photo and add some Christmas cheer to it!

Apple does know how to please. And if there was any doubt the people love their iPhone, that has now been erased by a poll that found a 96% satisfaction rate among iPhone 4S users. A Change/Wave survey released yesterday reported that 77% said there were "very satisfied," and 19% said "somewhat satisfied." Only 2% said they were unsatisfied.

Review: The Gwaii - 3D Comic Book by Mobad Games

image

I’ve primarily stuck to reviews of games in the past, because that’s mostly what I do with my iPod Touch.  However, I have been a comic book fan for a long time, and when I got the chance to review this cool looking “3D” comic book, I jumped on it.  To its credit, the book is pretty cool.  However, I think the 3D aspect of it is more gimmicky than practical or useful.  Still, to get an 84 page full color graphic novel for under $6 these days is a pretty good deal, and having it narrated thanks to its electronic format is a cool bonus.  If you’re really hoping for some slam-bang 3D effects you’re not going to be so impressed, but if you just want a decent story, slick 2D illustrations, and good voice work (at your discretion), The Gwaii is a solid choice for you.



iPhone 4S battery issues...

image

Many people still are reporting issues with their battery even after upgrading to iOS 5.0.1. I happen to be one of these people :(. I called Apple Support. I would have a fully charged 4S battery at the beginning of the school day, and with very little light use the battery would be around 25-30% dead 7 hrs later, not at all close to the up to 200 hours Apple claims. Fortunately I have been able to make it through the rest of the day with a Zagg Sparq 2.0 and I really do love it. Apple recommends that I turn off all location services (or at least the ones I dont need), that I turn on automatic brightness.



Review: Mushihimesama Bug Panic by Cave

image

From what little I know about Cave, they’re pretty famous for make excellent games that fall under the category of “bullet hell” scrolling shooters.  Bug Panic is certainly a far cry from that style of game play.  That doesn’t make it any less challenging, mind you, and actually goes to show that Cave is more than a one trick pony.  More importantly, it’s actually a nice change of pace from the typical dual stick shooter, which is the category it actually falls into.  The anime style cut scenes and overall cuteness might night be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a challenging dual stick shooter that doesn’t just feel like a clone of the rest, Bug Panic is a good choice for you.

FlamingIgloo iPhone App Review

image

The Flaming Igloo game is a fairly enjoyable yet challenging game.  The basic premise is you have to put out fires on your igloo by throwing snow balls at it.  If the fire goes on to long you’ll have to throw a large piece of ice at the igloo to fix it.  The makers of this game did a good job with the physics of the game making it challenging to throw the ice or snow at the right spot on the igloo.  There are many levels which get more challenging as you go and add in additional options.
