Publishers cut game prices, hope to secure top spot before App Store holiday freeze

Publishers cut game prices, hope to secure top spot before App Store holiday freeze

EA recently lowered the price of roughly 70 of their iPhone and iPad App Store games to $0.99, now Gamevil and Namco have also reduced their prices and as the holiday iTunes Connect deadline fast approaches, more may follow. Mike Schramm from TUAW explains why:

Apple is freezing the charts on December 23rd, which means that any games in the top 200 at that time will remain there over the all-important Christmas holiday, the point at which we've seen the biggest jumps in App Store sales (due to all the new hardware out there under the tree).

So when everyone gets their brand new iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and heads over to the App Store to get their game on, those top selling, top free, and top grossing leaderboards are going to be marketing gold.

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry to battle Apple?

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry to battle Apple?

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry in order to try and keep up, never mind compete, with Apple's iPad, never mind iPhone? Georgia, Chad, Ally and I spoke about this at length on last Sunday's iPad Live! podcast but given RIM's financial results and accompanying comments this week, I think it's appropriate to get some text behind it now as well.

Put SBSettings toggles in the iPhone app switcher with SBSwitcher [Jailbreak]

Put SBSettings toggles in the iPhone app switcher with SBSwitcher [Jailbreak]

SBSwitcher is a new mod in the Cydia Store that allows you to relocate all SBSettings toggles to the iOS 4 app switcher dock. Just scroll to the left to reveal all your toggles! The tweak is very useful, especially when you're in system apps (like Cydia) that don't allow you to use SBSettings from the status bar. Additional features include the ability to call up the app switcher from the lockscreen, letting you manipulate toggles or get into a running app without even unlocking your iPhone!

One small caveat is that you don't have the ability to respring from the app switcher without going into SBSettings from the status bar. An easy way to side-step this is by setting Activator to respring by using one of the available options, making it easier to respring on command without the need of getting into SBSettings whatsoever.

SBSwitcher is available in the Cydia Store for $2.99. Unfortunately for now, the mod doesn't work with the iPad. Check out the full feature list and screenshots after the break, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Skyfire for iPad coming very soon

Skyfire for iPad coming very soon

Skyfire has released a demo video (see below) showing off the iPad version of their Flash transcoding browser. Already available for the iPhone with fairly positive reviews; some of the features in the iPad version are the ability to view full screen Flash video as well as embedded Facebook, Twitter and Google Reader integration.

The iPad version will be a totally separate app, which basically means you will have to pay again if you already paid for the iPhone version. No information on pricing, but expect to pay slightly more than the $2.99 that the iPhone version currently costs.

Hopefully Skyfire will have ironed out its previous server overload issues, prior to the launch of the iPad version. Do you use Skyfire? Are you excited by the iPad version? Let us know in the comments!

iPhone and iPad App Store at a glance

iPhone and iPad App Store at a glance

The good people over at App of the Day took some time to put the App Store into some nice easy-to-read graphs and their findings were pretty amazing actually. According to their findings 33 percent of all apps currently available are free of charge. Something not so shocking is the fact that iPhone apps account for 85 percent of available apps while the iPad hits in at 7 percent while the rest is accounted for with universal binaries. The average price of apps is sitting at $2.43 with an overall average app rating of 3 stars.

Check out their awesome graphic after the break and let us know your thoughts on their findings in the comments below.

Future iPads to use light, flexible "knitted" material? [Patent watch]

Another interesting Apple patent has made its way out of Cupertino, this one explaining a process in which Apple would use new "knitting technology" to create a flexible material for use in iPads and other products. The material could be made from not only metal fibers but glass fibers or other types of materials as well.

12 Days of iTunes Christmas starts early with Kylie Minogue

12 Days of iTunes Christmas starts early with Kylie Minogue

Apple has started their 12 days of Christmas early, notifying European subscribers that they can right now pick up Kylie Minogue - A Christmas Gift, which consists of 3 free songs.

A few days ago, Apple UK launched the 12 days of iTunes Christmas app, that gave you 1 free song/film/app from the iTunes Store everyday from December 26th for 12 days.

Interestingly, the Official 12 days of iTunes website doesn't show this special promo, and "A Christmas Gift - EP" can't be found on iTunes, so this seems to be a app/email exclusive.
