Apple News: By the numbers

image

A few numbers of note from today's Apple event:

585,000 apps, 25 billion downloaded (as noted a few days ago.)  200,000 specifically formatted for iPad!

315 million iOS devices through 2011

62 million iOS devices in Q4 2011

15.4 million iPads in Q4 2011 (they claim HP sold 15.1 million PCs in that quarter!)

362 retail stores, 110 million visitors in Q4 2011 including the bustling Grand Central store (I was there, the day a petition was submitted to improve working conditions at Foxconn.)

100 million iCloud users - Once your data is in the iCloud, it's unlikely you'll want to leave the Apple ecosystem and have to deal with transferring your iLife!  And that my friends, is why it's free!



Bird Hunting Mania! HD App Review

image

Bird Hunting Mania! HD is one of the newest and addictive games to hit the App store.  It is filled with bright colors, enticing antics, and challenges that has made it very exciting to play.  At first it might not seem like much; but once you begin to hunt, you'll soon notice how strategic it becomes.  The concept is simple; catch as many exotic birds as you can to bring back to Earth in order to start a colony.  You are going to save the world from bird extinction; so get ready to hunt!



Review: Retro Racing by Jamie Woodhouse

image

I’m a big fan of overhead racing games, and because I remember the days when the NES reigned supreme I can appreciate things like “old school” graphics, as long as they are done well.  Like so many genres on the App Store, however, there are enough games of this type that you have to really do something different to stand out.  Retro Racing’s biggest problem is that it really doesn’t, and beyond that it has a couple of issues that actually detract from the fun factor.  I think the game is a nice start, but it might be a little too retro even for my retro tastes.

Call My Name App Review

image

The call my name app is a great new way to not only organize your contacts so they are easy to find and use, but also find the phone number of just about anyone or any business you want.  First, when you open up the app it will have all your contacts from your phone all loaded in and easy to find.  You can use the built in search function to quickly find people by their first name or last name, which makes it a lot easier than just scrolling through like you have to on the normal phone list.

Oh My Nuts Game Review

image

Oh My Nuts is a game app which is similar in many ways to angry birds where you have to launch something across the screen attempting to hit an object.  In this game you are shooting a squirrel (out of the mouth of a pig) at a series of three stars with an acorn at the landing point.  For each level you need to shoot the squirrel at the correct angle to get all three stars and land in the proper place to collect the nut.
