If you haven't heard of Mobli, or tried out the App (available for free in the Apple App store), now is a great time! Mobli, the new, up-and-coming social photo/video App is currently hosting a wild month of daily contests, with a brand new, New iPad as the prize, EVERY DAY! Yes indeed, you read that right! In an unprecedented move, Mobli is, for the month of May, giving away a New iPad every single day! The requirements for entering the different daily contests are quite simple, relatively speaking, considering the prize.
I've written before
about the iHangy iPhone necklace
and it's been well received everywhere I've worn mine. But the one thing many folks have asked for are integrated earbuds. Those wishes have been addressed.
PrintJinny is an app which will make it possible for you to print just about anything from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device. The concept seems quite simple but it actually helps to get around a lot of limitations associated with these mobile devices. More and more people are browsing the internet, looking at photos and even working from their mobile device and if they can’t print from them it is quite an inconvenience.
A new multimedia player, viPlay (AppStore link) has just been released in the AppStore. As there are no reviews of the app at all (not even mentioning dependable ones), I've found it necessary to quickly publish mine. (The detailed feature & evaluation chart of my forthcoming iOS Multimedia bible, as you may have guessed, has been updated with more thorough info on both this and the other new, below reviewed apps).
Cannibal cookout is a fun cooking based game with a disturbing, yet funny, twist. Rather than cooking with normal materials like many other cooking apps, you are a cannibal so you cook with other creatures. The main game play screen has a large pot with boiling water in the middle, fire underneath and some trees and bushes in the background. To beat each level you need to cook enough of the creatures to satisfy your character.
To cook one of these creatures you simply tap it and drag it into the boiling water where it will sit for a moment before going into your hunger meter to fill you up. While they are in the boiling water they have sad little voice bubbles which say, “AHHHH” and “OUCH” which while dark still manages to be cute.
Do you ever consider what iPhone or iPad would be without the App store? Seriously think about it...? iOS is great, sure, but would get boring in a hurry without the awesome apps and games. Games that developers create, slaving for weeks/months over details most of us would consider a form of insanity, to bring us the very best in mobile entertainment for a price under 5 bucks! What if, like in early computer days, we had to write our own apps?! I got a taste of what that might be like. I say a taste, because though I write scripts to do my job, neither coding nor computer graphics are activities I claim to be able to do well. To make a game for iOS, I would need a lot of help. Sketch Nation Studio certainly helped, but the result is well, laughable in my case!
My WiFi point of presence is in my basement. That's where the internet service provider installer guy had to put it. I mostly work 2 floors above that level, so getting a steady WiFi signal with all the interference in my neighborhood is somewhat a dicey proposition. My router was provided by the service company, so it's not exactly standard or easily configured (though I have tweaked on it a bit). I have been looking for a way to boost my upstairs WiFi reception for years, and didn't want to fuss with repeaters, or adding another AP. I think I may have finally found one of the easiest and cheapest ways to solve this problem. The Mohu Bounce...
The Kisaragi no Hogyoku app is more of a book than a traditional app. The app opens up to the main menu where you can choose to start the story or learn how to interact with it. The interaction is quite simple with regular taps and swipes to advance the story, touching the screen with two fingers to bring up the menu or three fingers to fast forward through the story. All of these gestures are simple to use and work flawlessly for controlling the pace of the story.
Having grown up in the 8 and 16 bit console era, I remember when 2D platform games were all the rage. Nowadays it seems as though even simple platforming romps need to be embellished with the latest 3D graphics in order to be accepted by the masses. Thankfully handheld devices like smartphones have made the 2D platform game “in style” again, and games like Frenzy Pop are taking good advantage of that. The premise is simple, the levels are challenging, and there’s no third dimension to clutter up the fun.
