Infinite Dreams, makers of the excellent K-Rally (which I still play)--a Pocket PC and Symbian classic (see a sneak peek of the upcoming K-Rally 3-D iPhone version here)--the iP version looks awesome. If you are interested to see what a dev dude can cook up in like a day, check out the free (with ads) version of Plasma Globe.

Redshift Review -- Astronomy on your iPhone!

image

After loading Redshift onto my iPod touch, I was a little miffed! The app has a gigantic amount of cool astronomy stuff under the hood to write about, and I figured it would take me until 2011 to finish doing a proper review. I hunkered down with grim resolve, and found quickly that hours were flying by in fascination and fun. This app has plenty to draw both hard core astronomy buffs and casual star-gazers as well!

image

Wow...Now, if they could just shrink the iPhone screen so I can barely read it, then I might feel like I was using my BB, but this is pretty killer.

Tunebug Shake Review... Quality Sound from Your Helmet!

image

You can bike, skateboard, rollor derby--or a ton of other things requiring a helmet--with headphones, but that's dangerous! Headphones significantly dampen environmental sound that you should hear (like someone yelling "look out!"). Get quality tunes to accompany that smooth kickflip (insert related slang of preference) without shutting out important sounds around you with the Tunebug Shake...

Designed by a physician and his wife (parents of a special needs child), iBiomed makes this gargantuan task much more manageable... You can grab this valuable app for free at the link above.
