This year's WWDC was a big one. Even without an iPhone to announce, Apple still managed to make a big splash in the developer pool. And speaking of developers, The Apple Design Awards also took place this week, and recognizes 12 applications with outstanding app design. Unfortunately, only two of them are free, but here they are for your downloading pleasure.
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.
Anyone with the right tools and a little coding knowhow can probably make an iOS game without too much trouble. Literally thousands of new gaming apps flood the App Store every week -- however, the quality often varies wildly. For every Canabalt and Sword & Sworcery there are probably 50 less quality titles to spend your hard-earned $0.99 to $1.99 on.
Hungry Monsters falls into the latter category: the bastard child of Critter Crunch’s food-gobbling mechanics and the indirect control seen in Yuji Naka’s Ivy the Kiwi, it isn't as well put-together, distinct, or fun as either game.
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 Electronic Entertainment Expo is coming to a close today and after several days of being blown away by gazillion-dollar-demonstrations, breathtaking graphics and the coolest upcoming titles gaming has to offer, we'd like to point out the 10 coolest iOS games on the horizon that we can't wait to get our mitts on.
PopCap Games today release a major update for the popular Plants vs. Zombies game for iPhone and iPod touch. The update features new content like new mini-games and six new achievements.

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.
If you thought animation was purely for professionals, think again. iStopMotion strips stop-motion animation down to its very basics so that anyone with a Mac, a camera, and a vivid imagination can produce their own animated movies. By default, they’re shot at 12 frames per second. That’s too low a frame rate for regular movies, but fine for stop-motion animations. You can choose a higher frame rate when you create your project, but remember that each frame has to be shot individually. At only 12fps, 120 shots will get you a 10-second movie. That’s a project!
