We just recently reviewed the excellent 100 Cameras in 1 app, but while it may have 100 cameras...in one, it doesn't have anything quite as awesome as this. Admittedly, this retro-inspired camera filter is only really useful for nostalgia trips, but sometimes we all need a quick 99 cent vacation back to a simpler time. If nothing else, this app forces us all to take a step back and appreciate everything the iPhone 4 camera offers.
Remedy Entertainment, a studio that normally specializes in console gaming, has announced that it's first ever iOS release is available in the App Store now. It's called Death Rally, and it's a drastically upgraded adaptation of their fifteen-year-old classic PC title of the same name. If you've been looking for a little bit of Twisted Metal on your iPhone this may be just the thing you need.
As part of a Facebook promotion, highly popular iOS developer and publisher Gameloft has pulled the lid off of its "secret project." The secret announcement turned out to be a brand new episode in the celebrated N.O.V.A. series of first person shooters. The announcement came today as Gameloft reached a previously set goal of 300,000 Facebook followers.
For most of us, Apple’s Calendar app does a perfectly fine job of keeping our important dates in order. But those of you looking for a little extra oomph from your digital day planner might want to take a look at Calevents. Unlike the 17,000 other calendar apps overflowing the App Store, Calevents works as a sort of standalone plugin for Calendar, adding functionality without upsetting Apple’s traditional user experience.
It seems more than a little bit strange, but apparently after the mid-season NBA trade flurry the iOS version of NBA Jam will be receiving a big roster update to bring the game up to speed with the current situation in the NBA. What's so strange about that? Well, iOS and other mobile platforms are the only ones getting that update. Console gamers that paid ten times as much for the game wont be getting it.
The Nintendo 3DS launched this week, delivering a stereoscopic 3D handheld experience without the need for special glasses. But if the thought of dropping $250 on a new portable gaming device sends you into a conniption -- especially scant weeks after the iPad 2 release -- worry not. Many of the Nintendo 3DS launch games (or suitable substitutes) are also available for iPhone and iPad. These games lack the 3D effects and offer varying features, but you'll avoid straining your eyes as well as your wallet, as all of these games sell for much less than the average $40 3DS game.
It's clearly been a bit of a crazy day over at THQ and LucasArts. When we posted earlier today, both companies had confirmed that the Star Wars Arcade game would be pulled from the App Store by the end of the day tomorrow. The fate of the entire Star Wars games franchise in the App Store was uncertain. Then, they deemed that all Star Wars games would need to be pulled from the App Store. But not long after that, THQ and LucasArts did a complete 180 and decided that no Star Wars games at all would be pulled from the store. Um...what?
We love ourselves some comic books and have since we were very young. We're also big fans of digital books and have enjoyed reading on our iPhone for many years now. Unfortunately, the small screen of our phones don't make for an optimal graphic reading experience. Don't get us wrong: we used to read plenty of comics on our iPhones, but it wasn't great, panning through all those miniature panels.
Literally our first thought when we heard about the iPad was: that'll make comics reading a dream. And it has, but who's running this dream?
