Game Center games begin to arrive [Gallery]

Ms. Pac Man from Namco is first out the gate with iOS 4.1 Game Center support, but there are plenty more to come. We'll update this post -- and we'll keep updating our new Game Center games tracker in the iPhone Forums -- as new ones arrive, but here's a first look at Leaderboards and Achievements... after the break!

For more new features, see our iOS 4.1 walkthrough.

[Ms. Pac Man on iTunes, thanks @neilwarner for the tip!]

What's your Game Center ID? [Waiting for games]

With iOS 4.1 going live, Game Center has gone live with it... well, except for the games part. Those will come any time now as developers and servers come online.

While you wait, let us know your Game Center ID in the comments below. You know, so you can challenge Jeremy to a Zombie shootout, or Chad to platform fun.

Here're mine and I'll add the rest of the writers and mods as they get setup.

iOS apps growing faster than iTunes music?

Both iTunes Store music and iOS App Store apps are being downloaded at an increasing rate. Apps are just increasing faster.

As can be seen, the App store has reached the same total downloads in 2.2 years as the iTMS reached after five years. The two curves are likely to be the same height (around 13 billion each) before the year is over.

I'm downloading far more apps than music, what about you?

Final Freeway - app review

I have seen Final Freeway in the App Store for a while and just glanced by. When looking at apps to review this week I felt a little nostalgic and thought I would give this little gem a spin. The result? Well, if you enjoy old-school arcade racing, if you remember when Out Run was the arcade game, then Final Freeway is for you!

Wi-Fi Sync for Jailbroken iPhones - how to fix what it breaks in iTunes

Back in late June/early July, I reviewed an app called Wi-Fi Sync for jailbroken iPhones. You can find my revised version of the review here. Originally this seemed like a pretty neat app. It's a bit pricey for what it does, but it did it well.

Now I've been having several issues with iTunes over the past 2 months. I couldn't restore or upgrade firmware (it would hang up at the very end and leave all my devices in never ending recovery loops). To my dismay, it also broke backups within iTunes. I found this out after I wiped one of my devices and then noticed my last backup had been 2 months earlier. In frustration, a buddy on Twitter (@snoslicer8) asked if I by chance had Wi-Fi Sync installed. And without a doubt, that was the problem.

Needless to say, click along to see how to fix these issues if you're having problems with iTunes and you've previously downloaded W-Fi Sync. Odds are, it's the culprit.

iOS 4.1 Gold Master now available to developers

Apple has begun seeding iOS 4.1 Gold Master to developers, the final step before the general availability release promised for next week.

In addition to fixes for proximity sensors, Bluetooth, and iPhone 3G performance, it includes Game Center, HD photos, HD YouTube uploads, and TV rentals.

If you're a developer, head on over to developer.apple.com and start downloading. No doubt the App Store will start taking iOS 4.1 compiled binaries any time now...

Epic Citadel for iPhone, iPad demo now in App Store

One of the highlights of today's Apple special music event was Epic who showed off their first iOS game. The game, an action-packed, sword-fighting, RPG adventure looked beyond gorgeous (it's from the people who made Gears of War, what do you expect?) and it's coming later this year.

But you can snag a copy of the demo in the iTunes App Store now.
