Sigma for iPhone - app review

Sigma for iPhone - app review

Sigma is a puzzle matching game for the iPhone. It is well made and fun to play.

The goal of Sigma is to match three blocks of the same color to blow them up and get points. This game is played in landscape, and on each side of the screen there is a roll of colored blocks. If you tap on the left of the screen, then the center block on that roll will shoot to the right side (and vice versa). Once you make a match, you have a few seconds to add more blocks. The more blocks in your match, the higher your score.

Matching five, six, seven or eight blocks produces special blocks. With five, you are given a block that when used in a match, blows up every block in that row. A match of six gives a block that blows up every block in that row and column. The special block when matching seven is a color bomb, which blows of every block of the color it is matched with. Lastly, a match of eight blocks creates a nuke bomb that blows up every block on the screen.

Sigma has three game modes: Sector, Time Attack, and Multiplayer. In sector mode, the goal is to clear blocks as fast as you can to fill up the progress bar before time runs out. In Time Attack Mode, the goal is to get the highest score possible within the time limit of one, five, or ten minutes. You can play against a friend via wifi or bluetooth in Multiplayer Mode. The fun twist is that if you fill the progress bar, an obstacle block will appear on your opponents screen.

If you like matching games, I guarantee you'll enjoy Sigma. It is designed well, fun to play, and a challenge to score high. If you decided to pick this on up, let us know what you think!

Video and screenshots after the break!

Apple sells 3 million iPads in 80 days

Apple sells 3 million iPads in 80 days

Apple just announced that they've sold 3 million iPads in its first 80 days on the market. For those keeping track, given it took roughly 60 days to sell 2 million, iPad sales are accelerating.

“People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month.”

Interestingly, while outside my local shopping mall yesterday, I watched two women walk by, point at the giant Apple logo and say, "look, it's the iPad store".

Is it safe to say Apple has mainstreamed the tablet yet, or

AT&T 3G Microcell review

AT&T 3G Microcell review

Our good friend George Ponder over at sibling site WMExperts has just posted a full AT&T 3G Microcell review, and it's authoritative to say the least.

Sure, George is still rocking the Mic(rocell, sorry!) with a Windows device, but our iOS fare -- iPhone and iPad alike -- won't care as long as they get more bars in more places (and the actual network backhaul behind them).

The AT&T Microcell isn't for everyone. If you're satisfied with (or can live with) your current signal reception, then you shouldn't bother with the Microcell. However, if your home or office location sucks wind with regards to signal reception, the Microcell is a good way to go about improving things.

Steve Jobs: Why iPhone 3G didn't get iOS 4 wallpaper

When it was subtly footnoted that iPhone 3G and iPod touch G2 wouldn't be getting iOS 4-style wallpaper, our only guess as to why was CoreAnimation performance -- Apple couldn't do their transitions over the textured background at levels that met their auteur standards.

Erica emailed Steve Jobs to find out:

iOS 4 features: Safari URL bar gets "awesome"

When you tap into the Safari's URL bar in iOS 4 and start typing, Safari starts to do a "keyword search", i.e. display predictive results based on your bookmarks and history. Anything that contains the text you're inputing either in the URL or history is listed below the URL field so the moment you see what you want you can just tap it and go.

Apple Store - Your iPhone 4 will deliver on June 23rd (?!)

Apple Store - Your iPhone 4 will deliver on June 23rd (?!)

Apple has apparently sent out an email to customers who pre-ordered iPhone 4 for delivery -- telling them it will arrive a day early, June 23, and to make sure they'll be around to receive it.

In the past pre-order shipments have sometimes had early delivery dates, but Apple has always had FedEx or UPS hold the package for arrival on the proper day (sometimes causing huge problems, like on international iPad launch). Is this an attempt to avoid courier congestion? To ease carrier activation overload?
