Every weekend we will be raffling off tons of great apps and accessories for FREE. Here's how it works:



SuperTooth Disco - Perfect for the iPhone and other Bluetooth A2DP devices

The SuperTooth Disco is compatible with the iPhone and all Bluetooth-enabled devices that support Bluetooth A2DP. I use it with my iPhone and my Mac Pro laptop.



Welcome to my blog!

My name is Zach Veach. I like to consider myself a techie, but my profession is racing (in addition to being a high-school Junior!). I race for Andretti Autosport in INDYCAR’s “Mazda Road to Indy” developmental ladder system. Currently I am in between the USF2000 National Championship Series and the Star Mazda Championships Series on my way to the IZOD IndyCar Series and Indianapolis 500 in just a few years. At only 16-years-old, I am currently one of the youngest licensed race car drivers in the country. This season I finished fourth in points, finishing in the top-10 in all my races. It has been quite a ride for me over the past several years. With my ambition and hard work, I hope to race in the Indianapolis 500 sooner rather than later.



App Review - Chopsticks Culture

image

 

Chopsticks Culture provides the exact benefit that it offers; a way to learn more about Asian styled recipes.  This app is designed to teach people how to say an Asian dish in Mandarin and Cantonese as well as be able to determine the name by appearance.  In other words, everyone has heard of the Peking duck dish; but do you know what it looks like?  In fact, would you be able to guess the English name of every Asian dish shown during a quiz?  Chopsticks Culture tests that theory and actually has a game to document progress.



Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary by BulkyPix

image

I am definitely a fan of ports of older games, because they usually allow me to replay a game I really enjoyed from my past or experience a game that I never got the opportunity to try the first time around.  Another World is slightly different, though, because other than knowing that it existed I had never played it nor did I know enough about it to really be interested in playing it.  Now that I’ve spent some time with it, however, I realize that I missed out on something pretty special by letting this one pass by.  I’m just glad I’ve gotten the chance to make amends on that faux pas.



Another World available on App store!

Not trying to steal Eric Pankoke's thunder on this, but am also a big AW fan from way back, and figured we should get the word out that you can now get this fabulous game (see Eric's preview at link above, and reviews forthcoming from both of us). Go here on the app store ($4.99 currently), or read on for the full PR scoop and video trailer...



Apple board member Al Gore hints at two iPhones coming

image

The October 4 launch date has now been widely reported, though all reports cite the same source. And now, according to Appolicious, Apple board member (and former U.S. vice president) Al Gore has referred to the launch at a conference he was addressing yesterday, saying, “Not to mention the new iPhones coming out next month. That was a plug.” Of course, the bloggers picked up on the plural, speculating that this was confirmation not only of the launch but that two phones are coming.



Apple announcement may be October 4, Tim Cook to present

image

Close on the heels of the surge in Apple's stock price, the website All Things Digital is reporting that Apple's even will be October 4, with Apple's new CEO Tim Cook doing the presentation. Apparently this website has a good track record, and TiPb says that another usually reliable source has corroborated. So it appears that we won't have long to wait to find out what the next iPhone will be.



Preview: Another World by BulkyPix

image

In 1991 and following Another World was unleashed on a myriad of platforms starting with the Amiga.  I remember the game existing, but I don’t know that I ever played it.  In a couple of days BulkyPix will be releasing this game on the iOS platform, and I’ve had the privilege of spending some time with it over the past few days.  Whether you like platform games or you just want to experience something a bit different than what you’re used to playing on your device, you won’t want to miss this gem.



Beep Me! Better than Calendar for quick reminders

image

I love Apple and they usually get things right, but the Calendar app leaves a bit to be desired.  I often have to enter quick reminders and the built-in app can be cumbersome.  For example, if I need to check the oven in one hour, I should be able to set a reminder to do that without having to tweak dials to set a clock for an hour from now.  Why can't I just touch a button that says "+1 hour" and be done?



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..."
