Angry Birds Halloween getting Christmas update!

It seems that the folks at Rovio Mobile have been working on an free update for Angry Birds Halloween... Angry Birds Christmas! According to Rovio's Twitter account, the update has been submitted to Apple for approval and should be appearing in the App Store in the next few days.

We recently posted that the TiPb Readers Choice Award-winning Angry Birds would be getting a major update this holiday season, with the introduction of many new levels and inclusion of the in-app purchase, "Mighty Eagle". First that, now Christmas? Sounds like Angry Birds fans will have a lot to enjoy this holiday season.

Rage HD for iPad- app review

Rage HD for iPad- app review


YouTube Link

When I saw John Carmack show off Rage on the iPhone a few months back, I was rather excited. The promise of real console-like graphics were in our grasp. Then, the game finally came out and I was initially blown away, but then...

Rage HD on iPad is set in a post-apocalyptic future. Typical of these types of games where you play a contestant out to earn money by defeating mutants. The game is set in a first-person shooter (FPS) perspective, but it is on rails. This means the game "moves" for you and you are only allowed to maneuver the cursor on screen at any given time. This is okay, as the games visuals are amazing and this style of game worked really well for Doom Resurrection on iPhone.

Do you want BBM on your iPhone?

Do you want BBM on your iPhone?

Every WWDC keynote we've joked that Mike Lazaridis from BlackBerry maker RIM would surprise everyone by joining Steve Jobs on stage to announce BlackBerry Connect and BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) for iPhone. Then we laugh and marvel out our new copy and paste, multitasking, or whatever Apple chooses to invent that year.

Our sibling site CrackBerry.com has put the whole BBM on iOS (and every other platform) issue right back on their front page, however, with Kevin asking the question:

AirVideoEnabler brings Airplay to ALL apps! [Jailbreak]

AirVideoEnabler brings Airplay to ALL apps! [Jailbreak]

With Apple only giving us a very limited version of AirPlay video streaming, the Jailbreak community has picked up the slack with AirVideoEnabler, a simple tweak that brings AirPlay video to all apps.

After Erica Sadun and Steven Troughton-Smith ">showed what was required to add AirPlay capability to 3rd party apps, a developer going by Zone-MR has created a Jailbreak hack which is available now on Cydia. While only available on a private repo (http://cydia.zone-mr.net) it will not be long before it is available on other repos as well.

Video after the break. Is the jailbreak community making it difficult for you to stay pure? Leave us a comment below!

iOS 4.2 features: Improved Safari web browser

iOS 4.2 features: Improved Safari web browser

While AirPrint and AirPlay integration, and Find in Page are the big user-facing features new to iOS 4.2 Safari, MobileXWeb points out that Apple also snuck in a few improvements under the hood:

  • Accelerometer & Gyroscope support through the DeviceOrientation API
  • WebSockets API from HTML5
  • Updated HTML 5 Form Support
  • Partial XHR-2 Support
  • New JavaScript data types
  • New DOM events
  • Enhanced SVG and Canvas support

If you are a developer let us know how useful these additions will be to your Web Apps. If you're not a developer that might look like mumbo jumbo to you but rest assured it means more better web applications could be coming your way soon, and since Apple uses Safari's WebKit to render everything from iTunes to App Store or iAd to Apple.com, and Google uses it Gmail and pretty much all their sites, there's potential for a lot more, lot better content coming our way.

Video after the break!
