Jump and Splash for iPhone and iPad now available

Jump and Splash is a new iPhone and iPad game available in the App Store. In Jump and Splash, you control Pilu, a little fish who's lost his mom, by jumping through the side-scrolling levels picking up coins and destroying crabs along the way.

I've played a few rounds of Jump and Splash and find it to be pretty fun. It's extremely similar to Whale Trail, so if you like that game, you'll like Jump and Splash.

Apple's iPhone 4S is now available factory unlocked in the U.S. from Apple.com. Why it took until November when countries like Canada and the UK got unlocked models at launch, who knows? But if you've been waiting to go contract and SIM-lock free, now's your chance! (Reminder: Only the GSM/AT&T version is available unlocked, not the CDMA/Verizon/Sprint version).

Apple has also launched the iPhone 4S in 13 more countries, namely Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea.

The new photo editing app, Photogene² for iPhone, is now available. The original Photogene was a major hit, and Omer Shoor now brings a completely redone interface and new features.

Photogene was always one of my favorite photo editing apps, so I downloaded Photogene² without giving it a second thought. I was pleasantly surprised to be immediately offered, as a valued customer of Photogene, an in-app purchase for free! The choices were Go Pro ($6), Collage Templates ($2), or More Frames ($1).

How's your battery life on iOS 5.0.1?

How's your battery life on iOS 5.0.1?

Apple has released iOS 5.0.1, purportedly to fix all the rigamarole surrounding battery life issues, but now that the TiPb Nation has had it for a day or so, we're curious -- did it get the job done? Is standby rock solid for you now, or still tumbling like it's in free fall? Can you turn your various location and notification settings back on and still, you know, have power left to use your iPhone as a phone? Can you raise Siri to speak without her telling you to go plug in somewhere?

And how's everything else working for you? Any bugs under 5.0.1 you didn't have before the update?

UK voice of Siri didn’t know Apple has used him until he saw the TV commercial

The provider of the voice for the UK version of Siri has been revealed and what makes the story even more intriguing is the fact that the guy who provided all the sounds didn’t even know it was him until he saw Apple's commercial. The voice, known as “Daniel”, was provided by former technology journalist Jon Briggs; but it was not provided directly to Apple. The voice over work was originally done six years ago for a company called Scansoft which was later purchased by Nuance, which subsequently licensed it to Apple.

Smash some birds with Raging Pigs for iPhone and iPad.

Smash some birds with Raging Pigs for iPhone and iPad.

Raging Pigs is an iPhone and iPad game where it's you, a single pigs, versus a flock of birds. It is your goal to smash and destroy them all. Each level has a different challenge including crates, special powers, platforms, and weapons.

Raging Pigs also has a companion app for the controls if you want to use your iPhone as a controller for your iPad or with AirPlay.

I'm am still undecided about Raging Pigs. The controls are on the screen and take a little getting used to. The more familiar with the controls I become, the more I like it. The iPad version has a free trial version, so I definitely recommend picking that up first and giving it a try.
