Quick App: Sonic the Hedgehog for iPhone

Quick App: Sonic the Hedgehog for iPhone

Okay, yeah, I rocked a Sega Genesis back in the day, which is perhaps not coincidentally the last platform where Sonic the Hedgehog was really done well. (Sorry, it needed to be said).

Can the iPhone version [$5.99 - iTunes link] make me eat those words, or at least spin me around on them faster than Yoda in a lightsaber duel? Let's see, Sega does say it'll make me relive my fondest memories from the Genesis era...

Daring Fireball Weighs in on Next Gen iPhone

Daring Fireball Weighs in on Next Gen iPhone

John Gruber of DaringFireball.net, who knows people who know people -- no names! -- has weighed in with his opinion on what we just might see from Apple in terms of a next generation iPhone at WWDC 2009.

Very likely: July release with roughly double the CPU power, digital compass, better camera with video shooting + editing, and 16GB/32GB SKUs.

Somewhat likely: Same $199/$299 price point, 256MB of RAM

Just maybe: Better battery life

Very unlikely: iTablet at WWDC

Sorta unlikely but...: iPhone mini at WWDC.

Do iPhone App Store Reviewers Spend Their Time Searching for Porn?

Do iPhone App Store Reviewers Spend Their Time Searching for Porn?

A while back we mentioned that an update to popular Twitter client, Tweetie was rejected by the iTunes App Store because, at that particular day and time, ****itlist showed up as a popular trend on Twitter. Later that same day Apple reversed the decision. But they haven't, apparently, reversed the capricious lunacy that led to it.

Apps for Less: Assassin's Creed, Siberian Strike, Convertbot

In today's Apps For Less we found a few very worthy deals that you should definitely take advantage of.

First up we have a gem of a game from Gameloft -- you might have heard it? -- Assassin's Creed - Altaïr's Chronicles [iTunes Link]. You should know that it is one to pick up, especially at it's new low price of $5.99 (down from $9.99!) Not a bad deal at all.

Quick App: Kindle 1.1 for iPhone

Quick App: Kindle 1.1 for iPhone

Amazon has gone and updated their iPhone Kindle App [iTunes link] to version 1.1 and added in some nifty new features to boot:

  • Read in portrait or landscape mode.
  • Select alternate background and text colors to improve reading comfort in low light conditions.
  • Tap on either side of the screen or flick to turn pages.
  • Pinch to zoom images in books.

Still free but also still requiring purchases through Amazon's web-based Kindle Store, it's never the less a good point release and overall improvement. And our resident Chadman was kind enough to provide some screenshots, so check out the gallery after the break!

iPhone Doubles Share of Smartphone Market

iPhone Doubles Share of Smartphone Market

While I still firmly believe Apple's primary currency is mindshare and their primary concern is profit share, analysts fill their plates with metrics and so it's dinner time once again for smartphone marketshare reports!

And how is Apple doing? Up from 5.3 to 10.8 according to Gartner, while the smartphone market as a whole was up 12.7%.

Of course, when you don't sell below-cost, margin eating goods, high market share goes hand in hand with high profit share, so Apple is no doubt enjoying both at the moment.

Fraudulent "iTunes" Alert -- Check Your Charges!

Fraudulent "iTunes" Alert -- Check Your Charges!

There's no technology that's 100% safe from fraud or social engineering. Those are predators that walk the cyber landscape, and just like hunter gatherers had to watch out for saber-toothed tigers and dire wolves, modern consumers have to keep an eye out for scammers and spammers.

So, it comes as little surprise that Fox New York (via Consumerist) reports iTunes is among the many attack vectors Bad Guys use when committing their fraud.

Apple Pressuring AT&T to Lower Rates in Face of Palm Pre Competition?

Apple Pressuring AT&T to Lower Rates in Face of Palm Pre Competition?

Confession: we secretly hope the Palm Pre does very well. Not because we want one ourselves -- we're pretty happy with the iPhone round here -- but because we want Apple and AT&T to think we want one so they continue to drive up innovation and drive down costs respectively. Competition is, was, and will forever be a Good Thing.
