We've all sat there through photo album after photo album, whether it's online or in print, and quite frankly, we're all a bit bored by now. Snap after snap of static images of your son's third birthday party? Yawn. Graduation photos of crowds then posed pics with diploma in hand next to mom? We'll pass. But if you could give your photo albums some pizazz, you might just catch our attention. The comic book version of your life? Now we're talking.
There are more e-readers out there than you know. Not only are there devices of all kinds and configurations and price points, but there are apps a-plenty for these devices a-plenty. But everyone knows what you mean when you say e-reader. You mean the Big Three, the Top Dogs, the Big Kahunas. You mean the trinity of the Kindle, the Nook, and the iPad.
Maybe we'll talk devices another day, but for now both of the iPad's competitors dish up rather full-featured iOS apps to challenge Apple's iBooks. The thinking goes, "Don't worry about profiting off the devices; aim to sell titles, wherever, however." So how do they stack up?
The legal maneuverings between Apple and Lodsys are heating up. After Cupertino came to the defense of its developers in a patent threat from Lodsys regarding in-app purchases, Lodsys turned around and filed suit against seven iOS developers -- and now Apple is striking back.
I’ve never been big into MMOs. I don’t want to pay a subscription and the hanging carrot gameplay and ominous warnings from friends (“promise me you’ll never play an MMO”) made them sound less than appealing. So when I heard Gameloft was making a World of Warcraft spinoff, I didn’t really care. But then things changed.
Welcome back to E3 for Day 2! We hope you enjoyed a quick look into the E3 yesterday as we plumbed the depths of the deafening show floor to find a handful of iOS games representing for the Apple gamers. On Day 2 we got to see all kinds of things. From toilet-chairs to a man who looks sort of like Steve Jobs dancing to some techno jams while we saw some 3D software.
Say what you want about Apple, but more often than not the company realizes its mistakes and tries to make things right again. That also now appears to be the case with some of its draconian in-app subscription rules which have threatened to kill off many publishers’ business models.
Much like Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 simply has too many new features for Apple to spend a two-hour keynote detailing them all. If the 10 features revealed at WWDC 2011 on Monday have whet your appetite for more, strap in and click on to find out some of the cool stuff coming this fall that Apple didn’t talk about in San Francisco.
Most readers probably wont remember the original Death Rally PC game released way back in 1996. It was considered a fantastic combat racer back then, and we're happy to report that the remake for iOS is just as compelling.
