iPhone Game Review: Stinger Foosball League

image

Stinger Games’ newly launched Stinger Foosball League takes a game that’s already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment.  Foosball, of course, is the table version of football or soccer.  With Stinger Foosball League, the field that was crammed into a table in a pub is now in your iOS device.



GPS Navigation App for Free

image

I just discovered a free GPS app for my iPhone called Waze. Free is usually an indicator of a light version of a full app. Not here. I have played around with and paid for some full featured navigation apps and have not been terribly impressed. I actually just drove from NYC with my brother, to Greensboro NC. We had two iPad, two iPhones and a built in GPS in my brothers vehicle. It was a Mo, Larry, Curly moment. We stopped multiple times by the side of the road to determine why all the devices were giving us different info, and actually got lost once. I am just glad my wife wasn't in the car or I would still be hearing about it. Anyway, I digress.



iPhone 5 appears temporarily on Cincinnati Bell website

image

One new iPhone or two? Tomorrow we'll know. The latest evidence for a new iPhone 5 model is the inadvertent appearance of a listing for it on the Cincinnati Bell website, according to TUAW. And the specs on the posted listing showed that the phone will have an 8-megapixel camera, 4G dataspeed, and a 4-inch screen. The evidence seems good — but this is still a rumor. The hardest part to believe is the 4G dataspeed and the fact that this particular carrier only offers prepay options.



New evidence for 64GB iPhone 4S model

Tomorrow we'll learn what Apple has up its sleeve, and we'll move from reporting rumors to explaining details. For now, the evidence continues to mount that an iPhone 4S will be announced along with a presumed iPhone 5. Gizmodo has posted actual photos of an iPhone 4S from the manufacturing plant in Brazil.



Flag Wars App Review

Flag Wars is an extremely strategic game that requires focus, attention, and detailed knowledge of the rules to be successful.  But, for those who enjoy a challenge; this app can definitely fulfill that need.  Luckily, the moment that you are brought to its homepage; you are given the option to start a new game, view the leader board, and of course learn how to play.  Even though the game is comparable to other games on the market; it is still highly recommended to read the instructions prior to starting a game.  Otherwise, it’s a guarantee that you’ll be lost.  The instructions are simple by matching picture with definition; so understanding it is the easy part.  Remembering and applying is where it gets a little difficult.

Looks pretty amazing (at an amazing $7.99 price), the console-quality graphics provided by the Unity game engine appear to be off the chain (yes, my outmoded way of saying it is totally beyond cool)! Also now the iTunes iPad "Game of the Week", you can grab this awesome shooter here, or read on for full PR details and video...

Will Apple announce two iPhones?

image

We've repeated several rumors that Apple will be announcing two iPhones -- contributing to the nearly impossible expectations. I don't envy Tim Cook, who will be facing such high expectations in his very first product introduction as CEO. Now a recent post on AppleInsider is quoting market analysts are are saying that it's likely that only one phone will be introduced. 



iPhone 5 cases show up at an AT&T store

There's a whole lotta confusion among the various rumors, and adding to the mix is the appearance of iPhone 5 cases in AT&T stores. The cases suggest that the new iPhone will be thinner with tapered edges. You can read more and see photos on the cases in a post on MacRumors. The post still holds out the possibility, though, that Apple may not introduce a redesigned iPhone -- that other evidence is suggesting an iPhone 4S instead. It won't be long until the mystery is solved.



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..."
