I recently took a vacation in Hong Kong with my family and I was pretty excited to check out the iPhone scene over there. There were several Chinese-language magazines that covered only iPhone and iPad related stuff, but what caught my eye was this magazine called ‘iPhone’. I bought the magazine and snapped a photo of the cover here.
If you were wondering, like me, how the lady sitting on the sports car could be related to the iPhone scene, I can tell you: “Plenty!”.
Sticker Worlds, a new iOS application from developer Snepo Research, is designed to gently amuse little ones and occupy small hands.
Five imaginative worlds provide the backdrop for children to build creative landscapes using brightly colored two-dimensional digital “stickers.” Hundreds of items and characters let creativity spread its wings.
Video Time Machine ($0.99) is a new app that gives you access to over 10,000 streaming videos. What makes this app unique is that it lets you select a year and then a category: Movies, Music, TV, Sports, Advertisements, News, and Video Games. You can cruise back through time and enjoy the nostalgia of days gone by. There are also integrated Twitter and Facebook features that make it easy to share videos. Unfortunately, there's not yet an iPad-specific version. The app is based on the YTTM.tv website.
I haven't yet tried Infinite Walls (free), but it seems like a great idea. The app lets you search Google Images for photos of subjects that interest you. The app automatically resizes the files for use as wallpapers on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, automatically detecting which device you're using. In-app purchases let you add more features, such as a vault where you can store images and have access to them without an Internet connection.
