Final Fantasy III for iPhone hits App Store... at $16

Final Fantasy III, which debuted in 1990, has just hit the App Store and is now available for iPhone and iPod touch (or pixel doubled on iPad if you really have to) for... $15.99. It features:

  • New and improved 3D visuals and story sequences exclusive to the iPhone/iPod touch
  • Smooth, intuitive touch-panel controls specifically tailored to Square Enix's iPhone RPGs
  • Quicker browsing through the monster bestiary and other game records
  • New visual designs for the Job Mastery Cards
  • Retina Display compatible

Now Finally Fantasy III is absolutely a classic that you can spend ours of your day (and night!) on, but $16 is much more expensive than pretty much any other iPhone game I can remember. Is this just a temporary price point aimed to make money off the biggest fans and early adopters or is Square trying to see if they can push iOS prices higher and more in line with portable gaming console prices?

Some of you tell us you want better games and don't mind paying a higher price, so is this what you had in mind? If so and you grab it let us know what you think of the game. If not, let us know what you think of the price!

Time Warner Cable receiving cease and desist orders for its iPad App?

According to Business Insider, TV networks are very unhappy with the Time Warner iPad App TW Cable TV. TW Cable TV can stream 32 channels of live television to your iPad as long as you have a cable TV subscription and internet service from Time Warner; you are even restricted to WiFi only.

The problem is television networks say that streaming video over to a tablet is totally different than providing content for cable televisions. This means they should own the rights to the content and get a fee for providing the content for the streaming iPad programs.

Daily Tip: How to watch Flash video on your iPad and iPhone

Curious how to watch Flash video on your iPad, iPod touch and iPhone? Sure Apple doesn't and probably won't even support Adobe's Flash plugin but guess what -- there are a couple of apps for that! You won't get Flash games or Flash apps, but thanks to some server-side Flash-to-H.264 transcoding, you can get a lot of the video you want on the device you have. And we'll show you how after the break!

Everyday brings easy daily self-protraiture to iPhone

The new app Everyday for iPhone is simple in premise -- it helps you take a daily self-portrait. You can align today's photo based on a grid or yesterday's photo and, of course, you can share it via the usual social network suspects. From the minds and talents of William Wilkinson, Adam Lisagor (aka lonelysandwich), Noah Kalina, and Oliver White and is based on White's "Noah Takes A Photo Of Himself For 6 Years project.

Now I'm not sure I'd personally use it for self-protraiture but for parents, especially new parents, it could be a terrific way to keep a daily journal of their children, especially with the video composition feature. Anyone out there giving it a try?

Screenshots and pre-requiste Adam Lisagor video after the break!

[$1.99 - iTunes link]
