Modern Combat, MyFantasyTeams Pro, DSLR Camera Remote, Quick Voice Pro, Mophie Juice Pack Air - TiPb Picks of the Week!


Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.

So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!

Chad's Pick: Modern Combat: Sandstorm

The game is a FPS in the Middle East theater. You play a marine who is sent kit numerous missions to take-out the bad guys. The framerate is smooth adn there are a few different usable control options. This game has good AI with enemies hidIng and using strategy to get you. There is a promised multiplayer mode coming soon, we can only hope that it is Internet-based play. If you are looking for a fresh FPS with good action, smooth framerate and potentially awesome multiplayer, check out Modern Combat: Sandstorm. [$6.99 - iTunes link]

Modern Combat

James' Pick: MyFantasyTeams Pro

I can't remember when I started, but I love Fantasy Football. I am in few leagues with friends and coworkers alike. And as I have said before, I am forgetful. Therefore, setting my roster can be a pain if I am not in front of a computer. MyFantasyTeams Pro is an app I have been looking for. It is compatible with all Yahoo fantasy teams and allows you to perform all of the tasks needed to make sure your fantasy team is ready for the week. You can submit lineup changes, add/drop players and even trade players from within the app. A must for all Yahoo fantasy addicts. [$3.99 - iTunes link]


Leanna's Pick: DSLR Camera Remote Professional Edition

Use your iPhone as a remote for your Canon or Nikon DSLR with DSLR Camera Remote Pro. Not only does it act as a shutter release, but you can adjust settings like shutter speed, aperture, white balance and even bracketing, rapid fire, and self timer. Get instant previews of photos you take and for supported cameras, you can see through your camera's viewfinder with LiveView. Although this only works over wifi, DSLR Camera Remote Pro is an awesome app and well worth the price. [$19.99 - iTunes link]


Matt's Pick: Quick Voice Pro

Quick Voice Pro is similar to voice-memo type applications, but with one major advantage - it allows you to convert your voice memo to text via e-mail, of course the recording has to be 30 seconds or less. I, however, found that I could get a lot of information in that amount of time & the conversion is scary accurate. The memos take about 5-15mins to convert depending on length. This is recommend for anyone on the go. [$0.99 - iTunes link]

Quick Voice Pro

Rene's Pick: Mophie Juice Pack Air

So we just got the Mophie Juice Pack Air in stock, and I'll be writing it up soon enough, but yesterday I was outside helping a friend build a fence, took some video, stuck my iPhone back in my pocket, and later felt it getting really hot. Yup, I'd forgotten to turn the video off, so there it was recording away -- in my pocket -- battery gasping and begging for mercy. Normally I'd have to go find a plug and be without my iPhone for a while, but since I just happened to have the Mophie with me, I slapped it on, and was good to go for the rest of the day. (Just make sure you're on firmware 3.0.1 as it fixed some issues with battery chargers). [$79.99 - iMore Store link]

Modern Combat, MyFantasyTeams Pro, DSLR Camera Remote, Quick Voice Pro, Mophie Juice Pack Air - TiPb Picks of the Week!


I got the juice pack air when I got my 3gs it's no good it kills my signal I have to take it off to use the phone it also is slippery so I droped it and it has a chip in the case so I can't return it don't get it it's a waste of money it's good as a charger and that's it thanks

That juicepack air also killed off 2 bars for me. I was really looking forward to the air when it came out and even preordered it. Only took a few days before I got rid of it. I got a Richard solo 1800 and have never been happier. It's a better choice.

I love the Juice Pack Air. Degrades the signal a little but not enough that I have to remove the phone to use. I leave my phone in at all times and it allows a me to use the phone continuously throughout the day - apps, video, music,etc. Would be better if textured - but I've never dropped it. I ordered a case from mophie that should take care of that problem.

My pick is Caster. If you like Metroid, Megaman, Dragon Ball Z, or anime style game then you'll love this! Grab it before the price goes up!

I had to replace my Mophie 6 times in the last year. I just found a charger case from monoprice for under $25.00.

My pick for the week is Camera Flash. It adds the effect of having used a flash (obviously) to the picture you're taking or one of the existing photos on your iPhone.
Worth the .99

Juice pack - bought the other version and their special USB connwctor went bust after second recharge. Not good!

I got a Mophie Juice Pack Air about a week ago, and I LOVE it. I'd prefer the case were textured perhaps, but it's not a major issue. I have no signal issues, but I'm in Australia and 99% of the population has full bars of 3G coverage, so that may not reflect well to the US and some places.

3.0.1 contains an update to fix battery charger issues? Can you point the article describing it? I didn't see it anywhere. Must have missed it.

I have the Juice Pack Air and its HORRIBLE. I have about 70% worse of a signal with this thing. If you care about playing games only and not being connected with your cell signal then get it becuase the added battery life is great. However, this thing kills battery life. I do not use this anymore, it sits in my drawer. Waist of $$$$

TwitBird Pro is my pick since it was free. I'm really enjoying it. I hope Atebits is taking notice of Tweetie looking very outdated.
