Express your fashion sense with Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey

Apalon's little iPhone game, Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey, is a relaxing fashion game with the only goal of dressing up your monkey.

  • Make up an unusual outfit for one of the four adorable characters: Rebel, Princess, Sage, and Granny
  • Be in control of just about every aspect of a model’s look, including hair style, eyes and skin color, and even mood of your virtual friend!
  • Take advantage of the large collection of different accessories: hats, wigs, scarves, bows, glasses and more!
  • Choose fancy backgrounds for your monkey: Sunny Jungles, Icy Forest, and more!
  • Share your monkey via email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or save it as wallpaper!
  • Find additional “packs” of accessories and backgrounds that are available through the built-in store

Although primarily targeted towards children, I enjoy playing with this app. I like cute little cuddly things, and it's fun dressing up my little monkey. My favorite feature is that in addition to accessorizing, I can choose a facial expression for my monkey that matches my personal mood. Such a great little time killer.

Dress The Monkey - Fashion Monkey is available for free with optional in-app purchases. Screenshots after the break.

Remote Potato HD heading to the iPad, Windows Media Center and iPad in perfect harmony

Remote Potato HD is coming soon for the iPad and if you’re a Windows Media Center user this could be the perfect app. With Remote Potato HD you can browse and stream all of your Windows Media Center content directly to your iPad in high resolution; locally or over the internet. You can also access your Media Center EPG (Electronic Program Guide) and schedule recordings all from within the app.

Another great feature, if you have an Apple TV, is AirPlay. As Remote Potato HD uses the Apple video player, to play back content, AirPlay can be used to stream to your Apple TV 2. This would enable your Apple TV to become a type of Media Center Extender.

In order to use the app with your Media Center system, you will have to install an application that handles the streaming and transcoding. This is available free from Remote Potato. The app has already been submitted to Apple for approval; so expect it to arrive any day now. No news on pricing yet but the existing version for iPhone and iPod touch is priced at $6.99.

There is a video demo of the app after the break. It looks like a fantastic solution; if you are a Windows Media Center and iPad user. I will be trying this one out as soon as it is available!

Comex to address camera connection kit issues caused by jailbreakme [jailbreak]

If you have jailbroken your iPad with the recently released Jailbreakme exploit and use the official Apple Camera Connection Kit, you may have noticed that it no longer works. Apparently Comex knows all about the problem and will be issuing a fix for it today. The fix will enable you to use the Camera Connection Kit as normal and will also address some packages from Cydia that have had problems too.

According to Comex, the fix will be in the form of a download from Cydia; if you are already jailbroken. We assume then that it should be part of any new jailbreak in the future; but don’t quote us on that!

  • Individual user setup (optional)
  • Online child performance Report Card (optional)
  • Simple and easy to use design
  • Memorable characters, pictures, shapes and sounds
  • Positive learning experiences
  • Numbers, words and phonics include a full word set of animals, fruits, vegetables and items around the house

In just the few moments I spent with the free trial, I was impressed by this app. It runs very smooth, has soothing music, and speaks clearly. I look forward to letting my daughter learn from it when she gets older.

The initial download for Pre-K Letters and Numbers is a free trial and to unlock All Letters and Numbers and the Report Card, there is an in-app purchase for $1.99. Screenshots after the break.
