Infinity Blade for iPhone and iPad starts hitting App Store

Infinity Blade, powered by Epic's Unreal 3 engine, has started hitting the iTunes App Store... in New Zealand. Hey, they said December 9 and that's where the sun starts coming up (and where Lord of the Rings lives, who can blame them?). As the day continues to break around the world, Infinity Blade should hit your local App Store as well.

Let us know when you see it go live, and when you grab it and get your game on, let us know how you like it!

iPad app Friendly for Facebook now free in App Store

Facebook still hasn't bothered to release a version of their app for iPad, so it's good news that third-party app, Friendly, has just gone free.

Friendly for Facebook is now ad supported, but users have the ability to dismiss ads that pop up at the bottom of the screen (and they're few and far between to begin with). I've been using their paid version for a while now, and I really enjoy the features available in Friendly for Facebook that simply aren't available on the Facebook website. Uploading photos, for example, is a feature I use quite a bit that wouldn't be available without Friendly for Facebook.

Google Latitude for iPhone coming soon, will let you track your friends

A native Google Latitude app for iPhone is soon to be released and should be available in an App Store shortly if it isn't already. Latitude is a service that uses location-based check-ins to let you track your friends online (with all appropriate privacy guards, of course).

UPDATE: Latitude has been pulled from the Japanese App Store. TechCrunch thinks the release might have been accidental and an official, publicized release could be coming soon. Now back to the original post already in progress...

While not the brouhaha Google Voice was, Google Latitude's absence from the App Store had been noticed. Could this mean we'll finally get a Google Maps Navigation and -- dare I say it -- native Gmail as well?

Description after the break.

New Cydia tweak Graviboard adds zero gravity to your Springboard! [Jailbreak]

Graviboard

Graviboard, a springboard tweak for jailbroken iPhones and iPads, has just been released on Cydia. This tweak is quite stunning visually as it brings different levels of gravity to your springboard icons. The level of gravity (earth, moon, zero gravity, etc.) and how the tweak is activated can be set in the settings menu. While this tweak is activated you can also interact with your icons by grabbing them and throwing them against each other. You even have the option of being able to launch your apps while they are flying around. Graviboard can be purchased on Cydia right now for $2.99.

Let us know what you think of this latest Jailbreak tweak by leaving us a comment below!

How to theme your iPhone with Winterboard [Jailbreak]

A lot of people are curious how to theme their iPhone's -- not just change the wallpaper but customize the whole look of the interface, including icons, menu bars, fonts, and more. Enter Winterboard, a free Jailbreak app you can download for free via Cydia.

Winterboard is a necessary utility to install themes and most customizations. Many veteran jailbreakers will remember the days of Summerboard as well. Winterboard took its place a few years back and improved upon several things. When you install a theme, all the components will show up in Winterboard.

Depending upon how a theme developer decided to bundle their theme, you may have only one package in Winterboard, or you may have several. I personally prefer when developers separate theme elements. Since Winterboard works as a hierarchy, I can select a theme and if I don't like the sounds, I can download a sound pack I "do" like and apply that in Winterboard. The key is to move it above the main theme so it overrides the sounds you don't want.

I highly suggest jailbreakers become familiar and comfortable with Winterboard. If you do, there is no limit to what you can do to your phone and you'll be able to tweak and customize even the littlest details of your springboard.

If you want to more, check out our complete guide to Jailbreak basics. If you need help, head on over to our Jailbreak Themes Forum! If you're a veteran themer already. let us know some of your favorites!

Google eBooks start going live for iPhone, iPad

The long rumored Google eBooks service appears to have gone live today... somewhat. The service allows you to not only read books on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, but on the web or on Android phones, Nook, and Sony devices. The iOS webpage boasts over 8,000 titles already available for download.

The only problem right now is the fact that the native app isn't currently available for iPhone or iPad yet. (I'm getting the "The item you've requested is not currently available in the US Store" error but we'll update when that's sorted out.)
