Papa Penguin for iPhone free for one week!

Papa Penguin, a game by Ideal Bureaucracy, is free in anticipation of an update due to be released next week.

Papa Penguin is a cute casual arcade game for children and their parents about a caring penguin who puts all his efforts in trying to get some fish for his two little children. The kids are quite gluttonous, so hardly Papa fetches them some food, they instantly absorb it and demand more and more!

  • Collect the fish and take it to your little kids!
  • Be smart! It's not an easy task to get to the most delicious fish.
  • Don't forget about the oxygen! You have to plan your route to get all the fish to the surface!
  • Beware of poisonous jelly-fish and sharp-toothed sea raptors!
  • Enjoy your antarctic diving with the beautiful ambient underwater music.

The update will include the following:

  • Screen rotation – play in both portrait and landscape mode
  • Sound button – you can now turn off the sound and listen to the music on your iPod while playing Papa Penguin
  • Better controls – pause button and interface elements on the screen no longer prevent you from controlling your character. You can use any part of the screen to move Papa
  • Funny scuba gear on the Papa's back and other small graphical and gameplay improvements

Papa Penguin is free until next week's update release (and debut on the Mac App Store). Screenshots after the break.

Samsung and Apple have been evaluating the possible niche market for solar-powered consumer products and considering the inclusion of Taiwan-based solar firms in their respective supply chains. However, according to Taiwan-based solar firms, these niche markets will need a longer time to develop.

BookBook case makes your iPhone 4 look like a vintage book [video]

Well known Mac accessory manufacturer Twelve South has taken a step into the iPhone case making business and released a wallet case which it is calling the BookBook. The BookBook case has been modelled on a vintage leather book cover and really does look the part; if you are into vintage type book covers!

Protect your iPhone 4 between two hard-back covers. Fold the covers back-to-back to talk. It feels great in your hand. BookBook allows edge-to-edge iPhone access. No frames in the way of your thumbs here. You can access all iPhone controls and ports with BookBook. Charge, sync and use the headphone jack while your iPhone is safe and sound in its phone book.

The BookBook case is also a wallet so you only need to carry one thing with you when you go out. It doess appear to be a very nice looking case but I am just not sure if I want my iPhone to look like an old book. The BookBook case is only available for the iPhone 4 at a price of $59.99. Take a look at the video after the break to see it in all its glory!

Apply selective coloring to your photos with Color Range for iPhone and iPad

SSA Mobile has released their new photo editing app, Color Range.

Simple and easy to use, this truly wonderful app enables you to convert any image into grayscale while keeping the selected color (or colors) bright and vivid. Color Range will make you feel like an artist photographer, except that instead of messing with a brush you’ll just need to tap the chosen color, select the color range and the smart app will automatically do the rest!

  • Unique Color Range effect with 2 work modes: color picker & color slider
  • Real time preview for all effects
  • Load pictures in any resolution or use the built-in camera
  • Zooming in and out for more convenient color choice
  • Gray / Color brush for custom edit of certain image areas when needed
  • Unlimited number of undo and redo options
  • HUE effect that allows you to change originally highlighted color (or colors)
  • Saturation and brightness controls
  • Easy and super user friendly interface and help
  • Save to Photo roll or share via eMail, Facebook & Twitter

Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of selective coloring, but if I was, this app looks like a great choice. Just tapping on the color is much easier than painting it in by hand.

Color Range is a universal app for iPhone and iPad and has an introductory price of $0.99.

Rumoured iPhone 5 cases show no home button, flipped controls

Either every single outlandish rumour surrounding Apple's upcoming [iPhone 5](http://www.imore.com/ is real, or someone has been reading the blogs and sending around "case leaks" again. We'll bet on the latter until there's real physical proof of the former.

If you're into this sort of thing, though, MobileFun is claiming two sources on these cases, which show off a bigger screen, sound controls on the opposite side of the iPhone, and no home button, just a large gesture area.
