[Review] Guess Your Songs: Could This Be The Next Rockstar Of Social Gaming?

image

 

Could this new game, Guess Your Songs, be the next social gaming phenomena? It's hard to predict the course of evolution of a new social game, or what will trigger a game's accelerated rise to stardom, but if the success pattern of such hit social games like Draw Something, Words With Friend and Scramble are any indication, then Guess Your Songs sits in a prime position to become a HUGE hit!

The keynote on Monday covered 10 new features of iOS 6, but those are, of course, just a small fraction of the 200 new features that this update will offer. A blog post on Gizmodo has collected 10 (and counting) of the coolest new features that weren't mentioned on Monday, and the blog comments are highlighting even more. If you use the Clock app as an alarm, with iOS 6 you'll be able to select any song on your iPhone or iPad to serve as the alarm. In addition, the iPad has a new Clock app.

Apple has posted a video of the full keynote from yesterday's Worldwide Developers Conference. It covers new Mac models, the forthcoming Mountain Lion operating system, and iOS 6 — nearly two hours in all. If nothing else, just watch Siri's standup comedy routine that takes up the first couple minutes of the keynote. If your interest is the iPhone and iPad, you can jump ahead to 68.50, when Scott Forstall comes on stage to talk about iOS 6. It's worth watching, especially the Flyover feature of the new Maps apps, which is demoed at 104.10 minutes into the video. This feature lets you zoom over a 3-D cityscape.

[Review] The Newest Waterproof Case On The Market: Introducing The Escape Capsule...

image

Introducing the Escape Capsule by Catalyst. This latest entry into the relatively exclusive field of waterproof cases does the job and does it with style. I've recently been able to test out this case, (which officially start shipping tomorrow, 6/12/2012) and having spent some hands-on time with it, I especially appreciated the Escape Capsule's minimalist approach to the waterproof case design format, among other things. This case is the "glass house” of waterproof cases. More than any other waterproof case, this case highlights your iPhone in all of its elegance and grace.

In a presenation filled with detail, Apple introduced iOS 6 today, with 200 new features. It will be available this fall for the iPhone 3GS and later, the iPad 2 and 3, and the fourth generation iPod touch. Ten of the new features were demoed, and they all look pretty exciting. The changes to Siri seem the most remarkable. You can now ask Siri specific questions related to sports (scores, stats, standings, etc.), restaurants (nearby restaurants, maps, hours, prices, reviews -- even make reservations), and movies (reviews, locations and times -- and even view the trailer right within Siri).

Apple and Microsoft Come Together in Polaris Office!

Polaris Office is a pretty unique app of its kind.  To sum it up, it allows Apple users with devices such as the iPad or iPhone to access and edit Microsoft Office documents.  Of course, it's a lot more extensive than just that; but this is why it has become one of the most popular business apps to date.  As for its cost, many people believe that the worth definitely meets its value. 



Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
