The weirdest iPad app yet? Apparently this is the most comprehensive collection...– Just bizarre. Ian’s Laces - 50 ways to lace shoes for iPad is £1.79 on App Store.
Stop the press: OS4 Multitasking Feature doesn’t work on 3G iPhones! :(
Sync your iPhone wirelessly
One for all you jailbreakers out there - you can now sync your iPhone wirelessly (no USB cable required). Wifi Sync syncs everything with iTunes over the air - music, apps, photos, contacts, calendars, email accounts, etc. Wifi Sync for iPhone is $9.99 via Cydia.
Our prayers have been answered! Godfinger finally available on iPhone.– The addicting Godfinger has been enchanting iPads the world over since launch and is now available for the iPhone too. It’s Farmville with planets and is very good.
Stop. Relax. Take a chill pill. (iPhone)
Being an appaholic is often pretty stressful (it can get pretty hairy ridding the world of zombies in Zombie Smash, kicking pens for England in X2 Football or landing a zillion planes in Flight Control HD). Sometimes you just need something to help you wind-down and relax. That’s where Andrew Johnson’s Relax app comes in. He’s apparently a clinical hypnotherapist from Scotland...
FarmVille for iPhone available now.– The social gaming phenomenon, Zynga’s FarmVille, is out for iPhone. Free on App Store.
Track down your lost iPhone or iPad remotely with ‘Find My Phone’...– Find My Phone allows you to find the location of your device with just your MobileMe sign-in details. It shows you where your iPhone/iPad is on a map, allows you to remotely password lock the device or even permanently wipe all the data if you think it’s a gone for good. Clever. Find My Phone...
Running Mirror's Edge. Awesome. (iPad)
Electronic Arts Mirror’s Edge sees you take control of underground ‘Runner’, Faith Connors, making her way across the city with a perfect society and a dark secret. The controls are kept simplistic and effective - running, sliding, rolling and jumping through buildings and across cityscapes - and the visuals are just stunning, the first game that I’ve seen that starts to...
PES (Pro Evolution Soccer) 2010 for iPhone is out now!– The best football game in the world (controversial) is out for the iPhone, just in time for the World Cup… well, almost. Is it any good on a phone? Mixed reviews so far. Check it out for yourself - PES2010 for iPhone
Total Football 2010 (iPhone)
If you wanted to know where Lampard or Rooney were during England vs USA, this is probably your best bet for finding out. Total Football 2010 is just footie analysis heaven. Find out how influential players were, how many passes they made (complete and incomplete), how many shots they took, how many were on target, how many off target, exactly were those shots went and more for each World Cup...
Worth watching? Find out with Movies by Flixster...
Whether it’s on TV or at the cinema, there’s aren’t many things that annoy me more than wasting a chunk of my time watching a rubbish film. With Flixster’s Movies app you can find out if a film is worth two hours of your precious time, or if you’d have a better time pulling off your finger nails one by one (btw Sex and the City 2 looks like it falls into the latter)....
Doodle Bombs away (iPhone)
A cool physics puzzler, lots of missions where you need to trigger a series of switches with your bombs until you can eventually blast open the door. Lite version features 16 missions, well worth checking out. Doodle Bomb Lite is free, full version is £1.19
Anyone remember Airwolf, that wicked 80s TV series with the hi-tech military helicopter? With Chopper you can be your very own Stringfellow Hawke, take to the skies, avoid the buildings, land to rescue your men and get them safely back to base, avoid the bazookas and unleash your bombs and machine guns on anyone you don’t like. Chopper is available for iPhone and iPad. Lite version is...
Marvel Comics brings you a new way to read comics using a really effective panel-by-panel transition to take you through the comic. The app allows you to search and buy comics, but there are plenty of free comics available to download so you can check it out for yourself before having to drop any cash. The app works great on the iPhone, but the iPad version looks even better as you’d...
Bouncing bullets? Crazy.
Bounce Bullet is pretty simple. Take out as many people with as few of your bouncing bullets as possible. Works well. Check out the free Lite version for a taster. Bounce Bullet Lite is free and Bounce Bullet Pro is 59p on App Store.
It's time to MouthOff!
If you ever get tired of your own mouth (who doesn’t?!), then you need to check out UsTwo’s MouthOff. The app has a stack of sound activated cartoon mouths for you to use - just hold it up in front of your mouth and talk, shout or sing. Good for a laugh. Mouth Off is free on App Store.
We love Carl
Utterly pointless, completely ridiculous… 100% genius. Talking Carl is a little red fellow, speak to him and he repeats what you say in his squeaky, high pitched voice, tickle his belly and he breaks out in chuckles, but poke him in the eye and he ain’t a happy Carl. You gotta love him. Talking Carl is 59p on App Store.
TripIt puts all your travel info in one place...
TripIt is a truly kickass travel organiser, used a lot by those that do lots of travelling but still really useful for the more casual traveller too. It keeps all your travel info in one place, flight details, hotel and hire car reservations, etc - and the best thing about it is you don’t need to waste time manually filling in the details, simply send your travel confirmation emails to...
Win & watch iTunes Festival (iPhone)
Throughout July the iTunes Festival will be taking over the Roundhouse in London showcasing some really rather good artists (old and new - think N-Dubz, Kate Nash, Ellie Goulding, The XX, Darwin Deez and more). The iTunes Festival app lets you enter to win tickets to each gig, see news on the artists and the festival, and from July 1 there’s going to be live video streams from each gig...
Guitar Hero, Farmville, and Netflix coming for iPhone– Via PC World
Essential accessory: Show your screen some love...
As any obsessive appaholic will testify; it’s a never ending battle trying to keep device screens dust and grime free. And with the introduction of the Apple iPad, where even the cleanest of fingers will leave a trail across that beautifully glossy screen, regular wipe downs have never been required more. Moshi’s TeraGlove is the answer. I’ve spent years using Mac’s...
Mashable! for iPad
Mashable’s iPad app has arrived and, whilst it’s not hugely different from the Mashable iPhone app, it does realise one of the benefits of the iPad. The larger display makes flicking between its different sections and stories much easier, and the nice size of the iPad makes for a more enjoyable reading experience. The app itself is very basic and could look nicer/work better, but the...
You'll either laugh or cry
The Impossible Test is a series of challenges (tasks that involve you thinking, swiping, tapping, dragging and shaking to the right answer)… some pretty straight forward, some infuriatingly tricky. The Impossible Test is free on App Store.
Penalty, ref! X2 Football 2010 (iPhone)
The X2 series of footie games from Exient is pretty good, possibly the best of the bunch available, but the small size of the iPhone doesn’t make for the best football game environment (control and view is always going to be limited). That said, I do love a penalty shoot out game and X2 Football 2010 has just that. The lite version is free and features on pitch training and the penalty...
Gorillaz Plastic Beach (iPhone)
As bands start to jump on the app bandwagon here’s a decent app from Gorillaz, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s animated act. It comes in a style of a passport and you can collect stamps for it using your camera, add your own passport pic and read all the latest Gorillaz news. There’s also a link to Murdoc’s Twitter feed, links to buy music and tour tickets, a gallery and a...
Play God on the iPad. Godfinger (iPad)
*UPDATE* Our prayers have been answered! Godfinger now available for iPhone. Godfinger from Ngmoco (the same people behind We Rule) is another time based activity game (like Farmville, etc). You play God, cultivate your world, gain followers, add farms and buildings, put your followers to work, earn gold, buy more stuff, get more followers, enchant followers in your friends worlds and generally...
This is what it looks like when Tron plays Pong....
Vector Ball is Pong in 3D with Tron-style 3D graphics. Tilt to control your paddle to hit the ball back. Control is pretty difficult at first (especially for those tricky balls that are returned to the corner), but you after a few goes you start to get the hang of it. Works brilliantly on iPad. Sounds are very good in it too. For iPhone - Vector Ball Lite is free, full version is 59p For iPad -...
