Pinball HD for iPad - app review

Pinball HD for iPad - app review

Pinball HD brings classic pinball arcade playing to the iPad. The graphics are beautiful and motions are smooth.

There are three tables included with Pinball HD: Wild West, The Deep, and Jungle Style. I find Wild West to be the least interesting table to play, but it will probably be great for a child who doesn't need a complicated and involved table. The Deep and Jungle Style are much more detailed and require much more skill to get a good score.

Pinball HD can be played in 3 different views. Holding the iPad in landscape will display the full table from a perspective view (the front is bigger than the back). In portrait, you can either view the full table or play with a "flying-table" view. The latter view follows the ball around the table and zooms in even closer when the ball is doing something interesting like bouncing around a bunch of bumpers or entering a special hole. The graphics in "flying-table" are very impressive; however, I find myself getting a little dizzy when playing in this view.

If you're a fan of pinball, Pinball HD will not disappoint. The physics are accurate and the gameplay is fun. For video and screenshots, follow us after the break!

iTunes Store Integrates Rotten Tomatoes Ratings

If you're a frequent browser of the iTunes movie section, you may have noticed the addition of a Rotten Tomatoes rating section.  If you're not familiar with Rotten Tomatoes, it's basically a site where users and critics can rate movies as fresh or rotten.  To the left you'll see the classic TomatoMeter rating system while to the right you'll see a few of the most recent ratings for that specific movie.

And if you still want to know more about a movie, clicking the find more option will take you to the Rotten Tomatoes site page for that film.  Fancy! What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

On-device iPad App Store goes international

On-device iPad App Store goes international

Overnight Apple began enabling the on-device iPad App Store for international users. That is to say, it no longer spits up the dreaded "the App Store is not supported in your country" error and actually renders the WebKit storefront now. It's still a bit of a work in progress with iPhone apps hard to distinguish from iPad specific ones off the main featured page, but it's a huge step forward.

BeejiveIM now available for iPad

BeejiveIM now available for iPad

The popular IM client BeejiveIM is now available on iPad. It offers much of the same functionality of it's iPhone cousin, but really takes advantage of the iPad screen real estate. Here are the key features that BeejiveIM boasts to bring:

  • Reliable and efficient networking: be connected 24/7, and it's gentle on your battery
  • Be connected even after you close the application. Get notified instantly when you get a new message with push notifications
  • Works with multiple IM networks, multiple accounts per network: AIM/iChat, MSN, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, Facebook IM, ICQ, Jabber, and MySpace IM
  • Send and receive files, including pictures and voice notes. View and forward received documents.
  • Desktop-like instant messaging with all of your IM buddies from a single intuitive user interface.

I have spent a little time with BeejiveIM for iPad and I find the experience to be wonderful. The UI is strait forward and the app is very stable. Notifications come in quickly as well. I dare say that BeejiveIM offers the best IM experience currently available on the iPad.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think!

[$5.99 - iTunes link]

iPhone OS 4 beta 4 reveals future iPod and iPad camera flash

It was only a matter of time that developers searched through the latest iPhone OS 4 beta to find secret goodies and this time we see that the next generations of the iPod and iPad both may receive a LED camera flash (which we guess also presupposes they're receive cameras, right?). The code is as follows:

FLASH_DISABLED_iPad = "The iPad needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";

FLASH_DISABLED_iPod = "The iPod needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";
