iPhone Pwns Indie Gaming?

iPhone Pwns Indie Gaming?

Apple's made a point to highlight gaming on the iPhone and iPod touch (the so-called funnest iPod ever), and six-months in, games still routinely dominate the App Store Top Ten lists. But what about outside the Apple ecosystem? How are iPhone/iPod touch games doing in the greater gaming 'verse? TUAW lets us know:

the iPhone more or less owns the finalist list for the 2009 Independent Games Festival Mobile category. 11 of the 14 contestants aren't on the Nintendo DS or PSP -- they're built and played on the iPhone and the iPod touch.

New iPhone Ad Focuses on Reading Apps

Multi-Touch Patents, You Belong to Apple Now

Multi-Touch Patents, You Belong to Apple Now

What was once but an administrative possibility has become the most sublime of legal certainties: Apple has been granted the multi-touch patents.

Credited to the one, Steve Jobs, and the many, Scott Forstall and the iPhone team, the news patents are simultaneously as wide ranging as they are specifically crafted towards the implementation of one or many fingers interacting on the screen in a mobile device, with the most subtle of heuristic interpretations.

Video: iPhone on Crack

No, it's not running our favorite frenemy OS, the pushy little BlackBerry JavaME, it's a new app pending approval in the App Store -- Cracked LCD, specifically -- and TiPb member the_idol was kind enough to share this advance peek at it in our forums:

read the above-linked thread for all the details, and enjoy the video -- and the prank'ish fun it might just give you later.

Anyone gonna try this out?

Forum Review: Illuminations for the iPhone

Forum Review: Illuminations for the iPhone

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

Illuminations is developed by Killer Robots and is an interesting shoot-em-up type game. It is based around the idea of a firework show. You have to shoot rockets that come up from the bottom of the screen in order to make them explode, if you miss too many, then the show is over for you. You also might find enemies that might spawn at random to keep you from “giving a good show,” these also must be eliminated (and added to the show).

Review: RichardSolo 1800 for iPhone Battery Charger

Review: RichardSolo 1800 for iPhone Battery Charger

The iPhone doesn't have a user-changeable battery. To some that was a non-starter. To others, that was a call to action. Enter the iPhone external battery charger. We've seen them in several forms now, from built-in cases like the Mophie Juice Pack to plug-in units like the RichardSolo 1800 for iPhone.

TiPb had a chance to meet with the very gracious Richard Thalheimer at Macworld, who shared his enthusiasm for the RichardSolo 1800 and asked us to give it a try. Seeing as how, between email, twitter, blogging, texting, and calling, I was draining our iPhones near dry, I was more than happy to.

So how did it do? Read on after the break!

Emoji Emoticons Enabled for All by frostyplace App!

The inimitable iJustine has tastily blog snacked about an App Store goodie named frostyplace (iTunes / $0.99), a Japanese RSS reader that by-the-way works around the iPhone's limitation of only allowing Emoji (the massive emoticon collection used in Japan that adds to smiley face things like panda bear, train station, and mountain) on it's official Japanese carrier.

iPhone at CES 2010 Update -- What About Macworld?

iPhone at CES 2010 Update -- What About Macworld?

With Apple announcing that Macworld 2009 would be its last, rumors began to fly that maybe CES 2010 would get Steve Jobs' attention instead. TiPb still isn't buying that -- given Apple's stated reasons, it makes no more sense for them than Macworld.

However, now word comes that iLounge has begun working with the CEA (the organization behind CES) to create an iPhone (and iPod) "iLounge Pavilion" at CES as a rallying and gathering point for exhibitors -- perhaps in lieu of Macworld 2010.

Quick App: Get iJiggles-y with the iPhone

Quick App: Get iJiggles-y with the iPhone

It seems the iPhone, with its OpenGL and CoreGraphics/CoreAnimation is just begging for some body distortion. We've seen it before (and seen it get rejected before), and it just keeps getting more fully featured. Says the developer, Smells Like Donkey:

everyone assumes that iJiggles is strictly a boob app. It is of course the first thing everyone does with it and it does it well, but it's designed so you can have fun with it on any picture.

Indeed, version 1.1 will include: Smoother and Faster Animations, new "Inflate" feature to further enhance parts of your photos, multitouch interactivity, saving and loading.

Gallery after the break.

(And BTW- TiPb is still waiting for the ladies to get a little pay back with these apps. Maybe in our Forums?)
