Are next-generation games the next iPhone killer app?

Are next-generation games the next iPhone killer app?

One look at the games being released for this season and it's easy to think we're entering into the next great generation of iPhone (and iPad) gaming. Infinity Blade has brought Epic's Unreal 3 Engine to iOS in grand fashion, with spectacular, real-time environments, fun gameplay, and character models and motion that would have blown me away on a PS2, let alone a handheld device that also surfs the web and makes phone calls. In a day or so we'll also get Real Racing 2, sequel to Firemint's Apple Design Award Winning driver, complete with 30 licensed, gorgeously reproduced cars and highly anticipated multiplayer online gaming.

These are features that, until now, were reserved for PC and console games. They're premium titles, the kind that take the time and effort of small scale motion pictures to make. They're what's putting a hurt on Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS business, never mind other smartphones. And they're on our iPhone, with more and more to come.

In a market where other platforms are now achieving 3rd party software parity with Apple -- they have enough of the kind of applications people want on their mobile devices that tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands are quantitative but no longer qualitative differentiators -- and raw hardware specs that equal and may soon eclipse iPhone 4, these kinds of games could be the iPhone's killer apps and Apple's next short term differentiator.

DataVault Password Manager for iPhone, iPad updated with advanced sync, backup, more

Ascendo's DataVault Password Manager, a universal app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad has just received a gigantic, Fort Knox-style update. It already stored all your web logins and credit card and bank account info with power and style but now adds the advanced sync and backup features to match.

It has all the security features an expert needs while still being simple and accessible to someone just getting into security apps for the first time. With optional Windows and Mac desktop clients, if you're still looking for the perfect mobile password manager, checkout Data

Infinity Blade update coming next week, multiplayer next year

Infinity Blade, powered by Epic’s Unreal 3 engine, was only released on December 9th, but it will receive a substantial update next week. The update will include five new weapons, shields and helmets as well as a new armor set; enough apparently to increase the level cap to 45. A new enemy will also be thrown into the mix; known as Marrow Fiend.

Another update is also in the works thought to be coming in early 2011. This should reveal new areas to explore and a more evolving story and challenging fight sequences.

Head on over to your Apple TV (2010)'s Update Software feature and give it a click because it looks like Apple has just released iOS 4.1.1. We're guessing this is a bug fix release, hopefully to address some of the HDCP and Netflix errors we've been seeing.

Google Voice app updated, not supports iPad, iPod touch

Google Voice app updated, not supports iPad, iPod touch

Google has updated Google Voice app for iPhone, extending support to the iPad and iPod touch.

At the top of the list was adding support for iPod Touch and iPad. Starting today, you can download a new version of Google Voice that lets you use all the features of the app on these devices, such as sending and receiving free text messages.

It looks like Google hasn't allowed users to use their iPad or iPod touch as a calling device but you still get a lot of great features to play with including the ability to initiate a Google Voice call from your iPod touch by sending it to your iPhone (or any desired number). Using a new feature called Click2Call, all you do is tap the Call button in Google Voice and select which phone you'd like it to ring to. Google Voice will then call the selected device and connect your call. Pretty neat!

Full updated list after the break. Any readers planning on grabbing this for their iPad or iPod touch? Anyone wish they'd turn on a VoIP option already? Let us know in the comments!
