Apple's iPad announcement event didn't put an especially large focus on
the gaming possibilities of the new device, but what was shown
demonstrated how easily developers can modify current iPhone and iPod
touch apps with just a brief time investment. We've already seen how
updated versions of N.O.V.A. and Need for Speed: Shift will take
advantage of the iPad, but it got us thinking -- how might some of the
other best-selling or beloved iPhone games use the iPad's updated
features to enhance the existing experience? Here's our list of 25
games we'd love to see enhanced for the iPad.
Warhammer Online doesn’t waste time with petty introductions. Just seconds after starting the game, you make the most important decisions of all: Selecting your character’s faction (two choices), race (three per faction), and career (another three options). The factions basically boil down to good and evil, but the other choices are more complex because they dictate how you’ll play the game. Certain characters are more difficult to play than others, but each offers unique gameplay elements. Once you choose your faction on a game server, you can create 10 characters, but they all must belong to the faction you chose. So yeah, choose wisely… because Warhammer Online isn’t messing around with warm-ups or second chances.
While it's been oft talked about that AT&T will lose it's exclusivity contract to carry the iPhone this year, one analyst group doesn't think there'll be a "map for that" until at least 2011. Cue the *collective groans* now.
A new Apple patent application revealed this week showed that possible future iPhones could allow for location sharing at the touch of a button. Now parents could have an even easier way to keep track of where their rascally teenagers are at!
We all know that iTunes can be a bit of a resource hog when you're
playing music through it while Photoshopping cats' faces onto your
friends' heads and browsing for pictures. But apparently for some users,
it can be even more of a problem.
The tech world seems to be getting more topsy-turvy every minute -- with both AT&T and Apple finally allowing VoIP calls via a 3G data connection, where will the madness end? Prepare to have your minds blown!
Something that wasn't made clear in the
iPad announcement was the release of a new software development kit
(SDK) from Apple for app developers. In this case that's big news,
though, because it removed the restrictions on calling over 3G.
Today, Skype posted in their
blog that a new version of their iPhone software is coming that
will remove the Wi-Fi only limitation on Skype calls.
While perusing the Apple site the day after the official announcement,
we noticed that the accessory options for the iPad were limited to only
a charging dock, what seems to be a Bluetooth keyboard, and a plain,
black leather case. Of course, the usual case makers started announcing
their multi-colored coverings. For shame, we thought. Such an
industry-shaking product deserves more than just a measly line-up of
We decided that instead of staring at
an empty page at Apple.com, we’d put our brains together and conjure up
some of our own ideas of incredibly useful add-ons for the iPad. We
figure that with these particular add-ons, the iPad won't be
referred to as an oversize iPod touch. After all, it's much more
difficult to watch an iPod touch at arm's length.
