New YouTube app for iPad and iPhone 5; watching TV on your iPad

image

You may recall that when iOS 6 came out, it lacked two apps that had been part of iOS from the beginning: Google's Maps and YouTube. Google quickly came out with a YouTube iPhone app to replace the one that went missing, but it received a lot of criticism. And many felt it was a stopgap until a full-fledged universal app could be developed. And happily, Google's free YouTube 1.1 app arrived in the App Store yesterday. It's now a universal app optimized for the screen of the retina iPad as well as the 4-inch screen of the iPhone 5.

One of my favorite electronics companies, and one that has for decades blazed the trail in hi-fidelity audiophile technology, is also one of the first companies to come to market with Apple's Lightning connector enabled docking speakers. Compatible with Apples’ latest Lightning enabled devices, this new line of docking speakers delivers a superior sound reproduction and includes a powerful music system capable of filling a large room with crystal clear audio, as well as two different mid-size docking speakers and a smaller, bedroom docking speaker that has a convenient clock display.

Looking for virtual wintertime fun this holiday, check out Ice Riders or Snow Fight (reviewed last winter season on my blog here), both from Sauce Digital.

Snow Fight is soon to get an update, so you might wait a bit before grabbing that one. Both are great time killers for the days when you wish you could be out there on the slopes, instead of, well, stuck inside playing games!!.... Read on for the full PR!



Boulder Dash XL App Review

image

Boulder Dash is an interesting game which is simple in concept, but difficult to master.  The idea of the game is not new in that you’re controlling a character in a 2D world where you have to find gems by walking through an underground area.  You can dig through sand to explore new areas, push round rocks to crush enemies or allow you to get to the other side of them.  There are other tops of rocks which you can’t dig through so you’ll have to explore your way around them.

Review: Zombies Don't Ride by Retro 64

image

Retro 64, developers of the awesome turn based tile RPG Rune Raiders, released a new game called Zombies Don’t Ride earlier this year.  This is one of those games that drive me nuts because while I can list several reasons why I shouldn’t like it, I find it hard to tear myself away from the game any time I load it up.  It’s certainly nowhere near the caliber of Rune Raiders, yet it’s highly addictive in its own way.  It also has the potential to be a money grubber, so if you can’t resist IAP, you might want to stay away.



What I Played this Week - GPP, Atomic Frogs and Dead Trigger!

image

This week I played 3 awesomely cool games at the $1.99 level and below...Galactic Phantasy Prelude is a space shooter RPG in the same class of game as Galaxy on Fire 2 (SD version recently went free and hit #1 in nine countries). Atomic Frogs, a physics puzzler that requires deft timing and aim to launch your frogs through the various obstacles. Last is a free to play shooter called Dead Trigger, which brings the joy of shredding Zombies to iPad in exquisitely detailed apocalyptic strokes. So, without further adieu, let the WIPTW game review madness commence!....
