iPhone/iPod Touch Game of the day – Cannon Challenge (video)

Picture 8.pngCannon Challenge is a VERY cool and fun game from The Discovery Channel(not sure when they started making games) From the Apple Apps store for your iPhone or iPod Touch.

You control the Elevation and Velocity of your canon trying to destroy various targets. The sound effects are great and when you hit your target the iPhone vibrates.

One of my favorite FREE games so far.

Get it HERE.

A Review of Facebook app for iPhone

Apple Gazette – Facebook for iPhone – Review

I’m a fairly casual user of Facebook. I don’t spend just huge amounts of time on it…just long enough to get on, see what my friends are up to, and go on about my business. So, for me, the brilliant Facebook webapp was absolutely perfect. Simple to navigate, pretty well loaded with features, it was exactly what I needed to satiate my social networking fix. With the web app, I had access to virtually anything I could do on Facebook. The native app, however, takes huge steps backward in the way of functionality.

Gone is the ability to write on walls. Gone is the ability to look at users’ photos. Gone is ability to look at any interests, events, or personal information whatsoever. There is the ability to take a picture and upload it directly, but shouldn’t you be able to choose from pics that are already in your Camera Roll as well? One positive note, though…Facebook chat is an added feature. I don’t use it regularly, and I really feel like any IM app won’t be worthwhile until push goes live for developers in a couple of months. But to each his own.

All in all, the Facebook app is a surprisingly crippled venture from a company that released what was (and is) one of the best iPhone webapps around. Unless you’re jonesing to use Chat, there’s no reason to download this until it’s vastly improved.

iPhone 3G Review with nice pics

iPhone 3G Review [Iphone 3g Review]

AFF15BD8-DF4F-42BE-91A3-F64A52CAAB95.jpg
There are simple reasons why the new iPhone 3G is better than the last.

Apple has eliminated so many annoying little hang-ups that you might run into when using the old one. The GPS pinpoints to meters instead of blocks. The 3G connection slashes web loading times by minutes to seconds. The more rounded case feels great in the hand. And most importantly the new software polishes the OS and opens the phone up to nearly unlimited capabilities through the countless programs that are already being written by the brilliant legions of faithful developers. It’s kind of cool.

If you want to cut to the chase, the software is what we’re most excited about—so much that we ran the first half of this review earlier extolling the iPhone 2.0 virtues in detail, including the fact that it’s a free upgrade for the people who snapped up the first iPhone, perhaps before it was ready.

On the software side, the iPhone has the most advanced touchscreen OS out there today. Scrolling, dialing, panning, zooming, touching and pinching are all actions you can do to get around your photos, your maps, your movies, your music and of course, your phone calls. The iPhone 2.0 update improves on the already great communication features such as desktop-class email and web browsing by adding MobileMe and Exchange support—both of which push emails to your phone as soon as they’re received, just like on the BlackBerry. These two new additions also allow your phone to always sync contacts and calendar events with your computer or your office’s system directly over the air, without ever needing to dock, or take any action. There’s also the App Store, which gives you access to a gigantic library of third-party applications to add features such as controlling your iTunes, instant messaging, 3D gaming and To Do lists. One drawback is that Apple may not support the cool (illegal) apps like the NES emulators and video recording programs that don’t work through the SDK. Lots of unofficial third party apps may never make it to the store. One, Instinctiv, a super iPhone music shuffle app, was recently denied store sales because it is against the terms of agreement to enhance the iPod or iPhone music playback in any way. Huh?! Apps also take a long time (minutes) to install and uninstall, and backups now take awhile longer than before. Annoying, but still worth the wait.

The fact that the free software’s advantages are available on the original iPhone means that the reduced subsidized price $199 for the 8GB and $299 for the 16GB are good, but maybe not good enough to justify a trade-in. (The $10 extra a month for 3G access is a wash, frankly.) Quite a conundrum for those of you tempted.

Review of Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone

Review: Mophie Juice Pack for iPhone
6437A814-F24B-4ED1-8E36-12C2E141EA50.jpg
The Juice Pack addresses one of the major complaints of the iPhone, namely the lack of a user-swappable battery. While the Juice Pack does add a bit of size and bulk to the iPhone, it is nothing unwieldy, and its ability to more than double your iPhone’s battery life while still maintaining a sleek, compact design makes it a must-have accessory for any serious traveler or iPhone “road warrior”.”
