You read that right, Starbucks came out and dropped two wonderful apps recently and they both are quite awesome. If I were to guess and be gracious with my guess, I’d say at least %90 of America loves coffee. They may not love Starbucks coffee, but they are still addicted to the little brown bean. Personally I really love Starbucks beans. I usually make my coffee in a French Press, which you should try if you haven’t. My favorites right now are the Guatemala Antigua, and the Italian Roast. Two very different flavors, but both wonderful. Writing this I feel like I can almost taste the coffee. So when I heard Starbucks released two apps for all iPhone owners and they were free, I had to check them out. What do the two apps do, and why did they make two apps? Read on to see what each app does.
Yup, we can sing praises finally about 3 months after the launch of iPhone software 3.0 us people over here in the states can send an MMS message. Hopefully after all of this hype around the iPhone and it’s lack there of of the ability to send an MMS, you all know what one is. In a few short words it’s just a way to send a multimedia message. With the iPhone you can send pictures, video, contacts, etc… Which is pretty sweet.
Look what we’ve got here today. Yup, you’ve guessed it, it’s another hands on product review. This is something that hopefully we’ll get more into as time goes on. Because I can’t just review apps all my life, you know what I mean?! So please do get in touch with us here at iPhone Nuts if you want to have your product reviewed on the site. Thanks for that.
Do you guys and gals remember the days when Real player was the norm for media playback on your computer? I’m only 22 and I do remember when I used Real player for all my media needs. Apple and Microsoft were quick to capitalize on the opportunity, and obviously since I love Apple I’m a big Quicktime fan. It really is the best out there at the moment. I supplement my Quicktime use with a plugin called Perian that everyone should use if you don’t. Also just in case I have VLC for backup, just incase the file won’t play right. None the less the Real player as we know it has all but died.
Happy Monday to everyone out on the internet this morning, or whenever you read this. It may not even be Monday where you are at, but here I am exhausted sitting in a computer lab in between classes. No matter my level of sleepiness I can always bring you something new about the iPhone. This time it’s an app made by the people at Skyworks, appropriately title Skyscrapers.
Finally, we’re going to finish up this series on a wonderful Friday. I’ve got a lot of great stuff coming your way as well. My weekend is not busy at all so I should be posting all the goodies over the weekend. So if you get bored check the site over the weekend. Better yet subscribe to our RSS feed, and follow us on Twitter! The last app in this drawn out series is a game we all know and love. It’s called UNO! I picked up the free version but if you want the full version then you’ll have to pay over $4.99. Just my humble opinion, but I don’t love UNO that much to pay $5 for it. I know there are some real UNO lovers out there so it may be worth it to you to have the game on your iPhone. The paid versions offers some nice multiplayer features though, you can play online with strangers or take on friends over Wifi. That’s cool in itself. So check it out if you need the full version.
It’s only been a few days now since the big Apple iPod bonanza, and of course they didn’t leave out their precious iPhone from any of the updates. It is after all an iPod too. It wasn’t any big news, iTunes 9 is pretty cool. They did bring back the 160GB iPod Classic. I have one of those before they killed it then brought it back. The nano got a camera and the iPod Touch really didn’t get anything spectacular.
As for the iPhone, she got a little update from 3.0 to 3.1. Some welcomed features, and breaks some things that we won’t speak of. Here is a rough run down of the fixes and new additions…
One of my favorite apps as of late, is also really helping me survive and make it through this semester of school. Of course you can take this and apply it to life, work, whatever it is you need to keep track of. The app is called Todo. I’m not sure if it’s pronounced To Do, or more like todo the dog from Wizard of Oz. The point is though that you can easily and quickly create a wonderful to do list that syncs up with your Mac and iCal. Read on to find out more
Rejoice, rejoice I say. The day has finally come that Flickr, a service of Yahoo, has brought us their own NATIVE app. Let me say too that this is an incredible app. After all of that searching for anything that functioned, looked, felt, like their own app they go ahead and release their own app. They sure did take their sweet time didn’t they? Well, after using it last night and some today I think I can say that it was worth the wait. If you can believe it I’ve only got one gripe about the app, and of course that is that you can’t upload multiple photos. If that’s my only complaint after more use then I sure hope Flickr adds that in, and quick! Let’s talk about the app now. By the way the app is completely free. Get IT now.
Almost done with the series Top 5 of 25 apps in the app store. For this round I’m only focusing on free apps, and perhaps paid ones in the future. This app came in at #4 last week when I started the series, and at present time is sitting at #5. It’s the free version of the game and only offers a few levels compared to it’s bigger, and paid full version. Again like some other games I’ve reviewed this one requires some brain activity. It’s a puzzle game similar to this app, but this one involves gears instead of a ragdoll.
