CNNMoney has a look at a report by analytics company Distimo's report that the Android Market would be larger than the iOS App Store by July. The report looked strictly at the numbers of apps, both paid and free, and based on that, drew the conclusion that more apps will be available for Android than for iOS. Based on current numbers, and the frequency of new apps being added to both stores, iOS soon won't have the largest app store (there are already more free Android apps than there are free iOS apps).
Dead Space was one of the finest iOS games we've ever played when it released back in January, and not a whole lot has changed since then. Few games have come along since then to challenge its throne. Today that just got even more difficult as EA announced a big new update to the game that will add several great additions.
Shooting video with your iPhone or iPod touch can be a lot of fun, but the built-in Camera app doesn’t do much beside recording the scene. If you want to play with fancy effects that are fun and easy to use, take a look at Silent Film Director. This app comes in two flavors -- a basic version and a more full-featured option unlocked via an in-app purchase.
Some of the best and most beloved casual games of the past several years -- Peggle, Bejeweled, and Plants vs. Zombies included -- came from the bright minds at PopCap, so when the studio announced recently that it would release smaller, edgier games under a new 4th and Battery label, we couldn't help but take notice. We just didn't expect the first game to focus on the graphic murder of flying horses.
Do you love Super Meat Boy, but feel guilty wasting all those pounds of animal flesh? Well, we've got just the game for you then. While we're waiting for a Super Meat Boy iOS port you can while away the hours with To-Fu: The Trials of Chi, another food-based puzzle-platformer.
As iOS gamers we're not used to being jealous of owners of other platforms. We're used to having every gaming company in existence grovel for our attention and charging 99 cents for their million-dollar games. So when info leaks that the developer of the indie sensation Minecraft is developing a mobile version of the game we simply assumed it would be coming to iOS first. Well, we were wrong.
How concerned should I be about this news that my iPhone keeps a database of everywhere I’ve been? I’m sure the truth is somewhere between Steve Jobs’ “We don’t track anyone,” and that funny (and insane) South Park episode “HumanCentiPad,” but what’s the real deal?
For all of its faults, iTunes is a versatile media player, allowing you to organize music in interesting ways -- assuming you know how to do so in the first place. Among the built-in tools offered are Ratings and Smart Playlists, which can be used in tandem to display media in most any way you can imagine.
What do you do with your iPhone or iPad when it’s sitting next to your Mac? Air Display connects your iOS device and your Mac over Wi-Fi, allowing you to use the additional screen space as part of your Desktop -- and also interact via the touch display. The possibilities are numerous; designating a display to your Twitter and IM clients or grouping your Photoshop palettes and brushes on to one screen are just a couple of examples.
