What I played this week - and mophie workbook review

image

Under embargo not to reveal too much information on a new game from Infinite Dreams called Jelly Defence, which been playing this week quite a bit--am allowed to post  up a short video teaser which can give you an idea after the break. TD isn't my fav way to waste time, but must say this game is looking good in it's beta form. I think it has the potential to be a hot App store commodity, but will have to see what the final version is like. I also got to check out a great iPad executive-style case called the workbook from mophie.



SoundPrism Review - Easy music composition for iPad, iPod touch or iPhone!

image

You want to play an instrument, or compose music for your new app or a YouTube trailer, or maybe just because--but, problem is you know little or nothing about music in general, the keyboard, synth or piano especially. SoundPrism can help! Seriously, this app makes it difficult to not make decent sounds come out of your device!!



What I am playing this week!

image

Have to post up on 3 apps I am enjoying on the iPad (and iPod touch) this week. I admit I have finally succumbed, and am now drinking the iPad Kool-Aid. The iPod touch screen was too small for eBook reads. Anyway, wanted to showcase 2 games and an excellent sound composition app am checking out this week. Flap Flap, forwards the weirdly addictive bird saga of other games like Tiny Wings--with a decidedly more platform feel...



Flap Flap gets cloud jumps, hooah!

image

What is up with the darn bird games. I love em, and can't stop playing them. Tiny Wings, Angry Birds, and now what? Flap Flap? ...Really? Wow, I never thought that games featuring our feathered friends (other than maybe the skeet shooting kind) could be so much fun! Anyway, read on for PR about yet another game (now in the review queue) in the avian pursuits genre...

"Major update for Norwegian indie game Flap Flap; Now with new game mode - Cloud Jump!"



Seidio releases ACTIVE cases for iPad 2!

image

If you think you should wing it, and not get protection for your hugely expensive iPad 2 device, uh well... I think you are loony! Especially for the people out there that are mountain-biking, scaling tall buildings and similar extreme craziness on their lunch breaks (with the iPad tossed into a backpack). You people need serious protection. Seidio Online has what you are looking for in the new ACTIVE case/cover thingy...read on for full press info...

 



Hex unveils new Nano watch bands!

image

Who would have thunk that an MP3 player could ever be a serious watch and fashion accessory? I love all things iPod, so had to post up on the high-quality and classy watch bands HEX just came out with for iPod nano G6. Read on for full press release details...



Enduro Review - Retro Atari racing fun!

image

The app store is chock full of games from the dawn of time, back when blocky pixels (we didn't know there were any other kind) were cutting edge, and many games were played more in the player's imagination than on-screen. Since many a geek of that era now owns an iPhone, our legacy has followed us to new generations. Enduro is about as raw a retro title as one can stand, and is one of those games that almost questions the wisdom of resurrecting some of this stuff (upon firs blush).



Golden Axe 3 by Sega now available!

image

More retro action is now available in the App store from SEGA. Check out Golden Axe 3, featuring head-to-head team play (using BT), and more hack and slash challenges for you and your friends. This completes the main versions ported for the series, so grab it here for $2.99...enjoy!



Stardunk Gold FREE for a limited time!

image

Stardunk Gold version (no ads--normally $1.99) went free on Thursday, and has apparently stayed that way (possibly through the weekend), so go grab it while it lasts. The Space Jam-esque MMO game has gone through several noteworthy upgrades and improvements of late, and the developer is keen on getting it out there, so what are you waiting for...??? It's FREE!



New Cool iPig delivers superb sound!

image

At CES this year, I got the grand tour of Speakal's latest sound docks. Most were not available at that time for review, but I finally was able to get a new "Cool iPig" to try out. The CiP is a small speaker dock (obviously done up in a pig motif) that includes motion-sensing technology. For a small speaker system, the unit pumps out good quality sound, and includes a rechargable battery. You need to be careful with your motions however, lest you inadvertedly blast your eardrums by moving too near the volume up control.
