Here comes another game review straight from me to you, consider it a late Christmas gift as I try and round out the stuff we cover on this website a little more evenly. Now that YouTube supports HD video I’m making one to show you how awesome this app is, and really when I say awesome I mean it. This is one of the greatest apps I’ve come across so far since the launch of the app store. Admittingly, I don’t do near enough browsing through it to really find those gems, but thanks to a friend of mine I came across this app. As a sidenote, if you ever have a great app you want to tell me about DO IT! This app has already provided me with hours of entertainment, and even though it is slightly hard to master at first it isn’t frustrating to play. It goes by the name TouchGrind.
As any good and faithful Mac fan, we’re all gearing up for Macworld ’09. It almost seems to many that Christmas and the New Year are second best to the biggest Mac conference of them all. Macworld has been the platform for many, and I mean MANY, product launches from Apple. I’ve been around long enough to live through four Macworlds, which seems crazy to me but I know many of you have witnessed many many more than I ever will. Sadly, this year will be the last year that Apple participates in Macworld.
The app store is something we blog about all the time, not only here at iPhonenuts.com, but millions of other blogs talk about the app store time and time again. Today is no different, ha. The app store has been a gold mine for TONS of developers, not to mention a great place for me to find things to blog about and review. I believe the app store is well past it’s 100,000th app by now and probably going to break a million in no time. Needless to say, the app store and the policies that follow have been giving countless people, developers and normal folks, headaches since it’s inception.
First, before I start my rant, let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas. 2008 has been a good year, even though when it seems like it’s not been so good. I mean, for one thing the iPhone 3G was released. That’s good enough for me. Not to mention this website was born. Which for me has been an awesome experience. It doesn’t get much better than blogging about the iPhone, especially since I’m quite the Apple fanatic. As if you couldn’t tell from reading this website. Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone who reads this post. We wish many blessings on you and your family.
We get it, you own an iPhone. It’s so shiny, smooth, and sexy. Apple is a GOD for building such a device, particularly Steve Jobs. We all know if you could you would bow before him and never stop worshipping him. This phone is slick. It’s got Wi-fi in it, unlimited internet from AT&T. I’m so incredibly jealous of your iPhone, wait… except for the fact that I have the iPhone 3G… So suck on that fool. I even sold my old one for more than I payed for this new one. Who’s the chump now?
Look at what I’ve got here, back to the good old app reviews. This one is different though, I’ve made a video to go a long with this one. But that’s only because you guys deserve it, and this app goes along great with a video to show it off. So you’re asking, “What app are you reviewing?” Well today it’s the ever popular Google app.
Once again I’m going to post about something different today, rather than review an app or do something incredibly boring like that… Don’t worry I’ve got TONS of apps still to review. It seems like MILLIONS of apps are created and released each day. Just not enough time in each day to cover all of them. But this is something that caught my eye and couldn’t be passed up. I just had to let you know about this. It’s one of those supremely geeky things, that only Apple nerds or iPhone lovers would buy. It may be similar to a calculator watch, or pocket protector. Which, for you and I, might be right up our alley. I know I love to collect little items like this. Those kind of, one off crazy collectors items. Thankfully this little set of coasters actually has some form of a cool factor to it. So let’s check them out. Hopefully many of you who read this site will enjoy them too.
Guess what? It’s another post about gaming on the iPhone! I hope all of the gamers out there are enjoying finally reading something about the iPhone and gaming here. Be sure not to miss out on the other iPhone gaming posts HERE. If you haven’t noticed lately Apple is making a big push with both the iPhone and iPod Touch to turn them into regular gaming devices. They are putting the iPhone up on the level of the PSP and especially the Nintendo DS. Which could turn to be disastrous as Apple has never pulled of gaming well in the past, especially concerning their Macs. Something is different this time though. Since the introduction of the iPhone/iPod Touch developers have been dying to make some games for it, and after the SDK came out it became entirely possible. But is the iPhone/Touch ready to take on the solid, and established DS? Here’s 2 good reasons. Let’s discuss them below.
I know we don’t do enough game reviews here at iPhonenuts, and by we I mean me…So starting now we are going to review a stinking game! I’ll admit it, that I am not a self proclaimed gamer. It’s just not in my personality. Don’t take me the wrong way though as completely against gaming. That’s not me at all. Back in my day I used to game ALL THE TIME on my computer . I played StarCraft, Warcraft, and Diablo II religiously. Came back from school in a hurry only to turn on a Beck CD and start up Star Craft and do some rushing, haha. Those were the days.
It’s been exactly one week since Amazon launched their iPhone app. For the longest time Amazon had nothing specific for the iPhone. I mean, you do have the “whole” internet in your pocket with this phone, but it didn’t take long for Amazon to cave in under the pressure. First Amazon built their website to automatically redirect you to one built just for the iPhone. This website still exist today and is an excellent way to browse through Amazon in hopes of finding something to buy. This web app wasn’t completely native though, and couldn’t offer some of the features that Amazon must have wanted to give to us.
