Forum Review: SushiTime for the iPhone

Forum Review: SushiTime for the iPhone

SushiTime Forum Review by msbaylor. (Visit the thread for video and more pics. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

So you go to a new sushi restaurant in town, you think, "man I bet they have an awesome yellow tail roll here". You are seated at a table by the beautiful waitress, you open the menu, and low and hold...the menu uses terms that you know nothing about. You think to yourself, "I could ask the waitress, but then she'll think I'm stupid!" That's when it hits you, only the night before, you downloaded Sushi Time to your iPhone. With Sushi Time, you realize, "I don't have to be a sushi pro to eat like one! Sushi Time will demystify many common terms found in sushi restaurant menus as well as fill in gaps for sushi connoisseurs."

So you whip out your iPhone and startup Sushi Time, you scroll down the list to lookup up the word "fugu" your finger shakes with excitement as you realize you are so close to revealing the secrets of the name...You tap it and the app reveals a tile with a picture, hey you "realize that looks like yellow-tail"...

State of the Apps: PCalc Hits 1.2, Dirty Tactics, and a Warning to Developers: Charge More for Apps!

State of the Apps: PCalc Hits 1.2, Dirty Tactics, and a Warning to Developers: Charge More for Apps!

TiPb has been exploring issues surrounding the App Store, especially how developers can earn a living, the various attempts to market apps in a sporting manner, as well the gaming and foul play going on.

In the bright lights category, developer James Thomson (ha! spelled it right that time!) has taken a decidedly humorous approach with the launch of his updated PCalc 1.2 (iTunes link) calculator app:

I think we got off to a bad start last time with version 1.1. It was my fault entirely. I came out with this big release I'd spent months on, sent out my press releases, and not a soul ran a story with the exception of that nice Mr Gruber fellow [Although TiPb did run an interview -- thanks again, James!]. Sales were quite poor and we both said some things we regretted in the morning.

But I understand, don't worry. You're tired of the deluge of iPhone press releases, and everything you see just starts to look the same after a while. I didn't do anything to make it an interesting read and, let's face it, I'm kind of fighting a losing battle with a calculator which - I'll be the first to admit - is next to the flashlights and to-do list apps in terms of reaching saturation point on the store.

Not quite. I rock PCalc on my iPhone, with narry a flashlight in sight!

While PCalc chose humor, some others have gone decidedly darker...

Flash ARMed to the MAX? Could the iPhone be Next?

According to Macrumors, Adobe and ARM, which is the chipset Apple uses to power the iPhone, have announced they're making a special version optimized for mobile devices. (And, yes, to be snarky, I'll believe that when I get a version optimized for Intel on the Mac, b'okay?)

Round Robin: TiPb vs. Android G1! Comment here for your chance to win an iPhone 3G!

[This is an official Smartphone Experts Round Robin post! Every day you reply here, you're automatically entered for a chance to win an iPhone 3G, Case-Mate Naked Case, and Motorola H9 Bluetooth Headset! More below!]

Okay, fair enough, I'm having a little fun up there, but with the Smartphone Empire Experts Round Robin officially under way and my iPhone frozen in carbonite for the next month, the G1 could be my only hope!

I'm still trying to figure out if this is the 'droid I've been looking for, however. Do I understand the awesome power of the open-platform of the Google? Or is it more concept now than device, twisted and confusing?

Check out the video, then head on over to Android Central to help me out. Every day you post, you get entered to WIN one of FIVE smartphone prize packs! And you can enter each site's contest, so don't forget to help turn Casey back to the iPhone side as well!

May the forums be with you!

Update: Google Advanced Voice Search Delayed by Apple?

Update: Google Advanced Voice Search Delayed by Apple?

Now after watching the above video, it seems as if Google has made one heck of a voice recognition app. But where the heck has it gone?!

It's pretty clear Google loves the iPhone, that is something we all know. Now why would Apple go ahead and delay their latest App Store app, Advanced Voice Search? Or have the reports of a Friday release been greatly exaggerated? The app was "expected" to make it's appearance in the App Store this past Friday. TechCrunch is now telling us to look for it tomorrow!

Apple Building Their Own Search Engine?

The intertubes are a flood with rumors that Apple may be building their own search engine. Does this mean they're going into competition with Microsoft Live! Search? With Yahoo!? With Google?! (After all, Google went into competition with Apple in the smartphone market!)

Probably not, according to TechCrunch:
