When Apple announced the video-out feature for the iPhone, we rejoiced. Finally, we could watch YouTube cat videos on the big screen from our iPhones -- albeit with the addition of an expensive cable. Okay, so maybe we didn’t rejoice that much. Cables are a pain. Grabbing one so you can watch something on the TV…and then only being able to stand a few feet away from said TV is pretty much a bummer all around.
If you can’t quite imagine what it’d look like to leap from the tallest building in Malaysia or fly over the mouth of a volcano like Mount St. Helens, consider parting with $1.99 to give yourself perspective with the 360-degree, 3D video on im360, a universal app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Few would argue that Epic Games’ Infinity Blade was one of the most impressive games ever released for iOS -- but that’s only the beginning, because the company has announced a sequel coming December 1, with a sneak preview on the iPhone 4S at Tuesday’s “Let’s talk iPhone” event in Cupertino.
Ahh, there’s nothing quite like a relaxing daytime drive. The idylls of the open road, the quiet hum of tires meeting road, the feeling of traveling through open air. Conversely, there’s a reason you shouldn’t climb into the driver’s seat while intoxicated -- it can make for one hell of an unwieldy and dangerous ride.
The awesome flash game Steambirds is officially getting a second iOS version next month as Steambirds: Survival makes its way to the App Store.
Steambirds is like the amazing iOS spawn of Flight Control and Frozen Synapse. The former is, of course, the very well-known international iOS hit that tasks players with trying to land airplanes with the touch screen. The latter is a less-known PC and Mac title that has become an underground sensation in recent months.
Apple yesterday announced that it's officially holding an event a week from now to announce new iOS products. Whether it's a new iPhone or a whole slew of iPods is a different story entirely, but it could very well be that this year we'll be seeing a refresh to everyone's favorite music player. With that in mind, here’s a look at what Cupertino might do to put the spotlight back on the iPod again.
We know, we know. You’ve wanted to switch to an iPhone for a long time, and now that the next iPhone is almost here, it’s finally time to make moves. But what about all your precious Google Contacts, the photos you’ve taken throughout the years, and precious music? Fortunately, with a few easy steps, you can move all that stuff to your iOS device faster than you can say "I can’t believe I stuck with Android this long." Here’s make the move without the hassle.
Tiger Style Games' debut release, Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor, was one of the first truly original App Store standouts, letting you command an arachnid by flicking it around stages, all the while unraveling a mystery as you spun webs and captured flies. The studio's next big release looks to make a similarly distinct impression on the iPhone and iPad, this time by blending familiar play elements in a very different way with a game that features side-scrolling exploration -- and gardening.
