Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies: Verrückt

17

Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies: Verrückt

Activision's first person shooter hit, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies is taking advantage of in-app purchasing with a new map - Verrückt (Zombie Asylum).

This new map will run you an additional $4.99, added to the app's original price of $9.99. (Full disclosure: Activation was nice enough cover the cost for TiPb's test-drive of both the app and the new map). Price aside, it does not disappoint. Zombie Verrückt has been brought over pretty much exactly from console versions, electric barriers and all.

Also worth mentioning are the slew of impovements the recent free 1.2.0 update to the game brought to the table.

  • Verrückt Map Now Available; Support for In-App Purchases of downloadable maps
  • 9 New Weapons including FG-42, Gewehr-43, PPsh-41, M1 Garand, and the Springfield
  • 13 New Achievements for Nacht der Untoten and 10 New Achievements for the new Verrückt map
  • Overall game engine optimizations for a smoother, richer gameplay experience
  • Leaderboard Enhancements to track Highest Wave Reached, Points Scored, Kills, and Headshots
  • Control Tweaks to Touch Screen & Dual Stick configurations with Options to adjust controls based on user preferences
  • Tutorial adjustments to allow for experimentation of control schemes before game start
  • Multiplayer Point Display to track your comrades’ in-game progression
  • Improved Network Reliability
  • More connection types will be able to support online multiplayer; UPnP support to address players with Wi-Fi routers that block players’ ability to connect to MP
  • Support for French localized text

This game is one heck of an experience for you to check out on your iPhone or iPod touch. If you find yourself still on the fence we highly recomend that you at least try the lite version for free. [iTunes Link] Sure you only get to play a few rounds but everything else is there including multiplayer.

We're also curious to know what you think about the price point. Is $9.99 for the full version plus an additional $4.99 for a single new map still cheap compared to console games, or does it deter you at all? Are you willing to pay a premium for premium games? Let us know in the comments, and we'

A few screenshots after the break!

Apple Doubles 3G Download Cap for iPhone to 20MB

iLounge discovered that Apple has stealthily doubled the limit for iPhone over-the-air downloads via 3G from it's previous 10MB cap to 20MB, though the reasons remain unclear:

it could be related to the impending release of the iPad, improvements in carrier bandwidth, or simply a desire to allow users to have anywhere access to larger applications on the App Store.

iPad Safari on iPhone 3.2 SDK Simulator Walkthrough

9to5Mac has posted up a walkthrough of the iPad's version of the Safari web browser, running on the iPhone 3.2 SDK's simulator. Instead of sliding in new screens, iPad Safari uses Apple's new popover menus to handle bookmarks, search, and other UI tasks.

We have to admit, it's looking great to us and we can't wait to get our geeky, multi-touchy hand on it.

Motorola XH1 Bone-conducting Bluetooth Headset for iPhone

Phil and I got a demo of the Motorola XH1 Bluetooth headset [$109.95 (30% off!) - iMore Store Link] at CES 2010 and I've been road testing it ever since. The real in-ear, bone-conducting technology was intriguing, and since I really liked the Moto H17, I was curious to see how this one would stack up. So, let's take a look after the break!

Opera Mini for iPhone -- SPE at Mobile World Congress 2010

We had the opportunity at Mobile World Congress to sit down with Opera co-founder Jon S. von Tetzchner Jon S. von Tetzchner and talk Opera Mini browser for iPhone. Now the good news: We've seen the Opera Mini browser on the iPhone, and it is wonderful. The bad news: While we can talk about it till the cows come home, we weren't allowed to take video or even a still picture of it. Them's the breaks.

Meebo IM for iPhone and iPod touch

24

Meebo IM for iPhone and iPod touch

It's been a long time coming, but instant messaging client, Meebo, [iTunes Link - Free] has finally made it into the App Store. The last time TiPb mentioned Meebo was back in 2008 when Chad reviewed their web app. Since then, several other IM apps have become popular. What does Meembo have to offer?

  • Push notifications even when the app is closed
  • Stay connected as you move from Edge to 3G to WiFi
  • Meebo's proven multi-network access protocols
  • Automatically reconnect if you lose coverage so you don't miss a message
  • Swipe to switch between multiple conversations
  • Rotate for landscape mode and a wider keyboard.
  • Message preview from the Chats List
  • Full Meebo emoticon support
  • Searchable Chat History
  • Sort chats by most recent or full view
  • Support for all the major IM networks, and many more

We've been using Meebo for about a week now and it is a very good effort for a 1.0 release. You can really tell the app was optimized for speed, simplicity, and performance as claimed. While the UI could use a little work, it does have all of the bells and whistles imaginable to compete with with the current crop of IM client top contenders.

Textfree SMS for iPhone, iPod touch hits 1 Billion Messages Served in 10 Months

Textfree SMS for iPhone, iPod touch hits 1 Billion Messages Served in 10 Months

Pinger sent us word that their Textfree [$5.99 - iTunes link] for iPhone and iPod touch, which lets US users send and reply to SMS, has hit 1 billion messages delivered in just 10 months.

Now, we don't usually run metrics announcements here at TiPb, but I don't usually come back from CES with $45 in SMS charges either (billed at $0.80 each since I was roaming). Would that they would internationalize it!

If you've used Textfree or another SMS-alternative, how did it work for you?
