Hope you all had a happy New Year. Since Christmas obligations kept me from writing a roundup last week I thought I’d do my best to give you a double dose of gaming goodness this week. After being relatively quiet for a while Digital Chocolate is back with what looks to be a real time strategy game called Army Attack. It’s free with IAP options, and it also requires an internet connection in order to be able to play. Stone Blade Entertainment released SolForge, a demo of a new trading card game coming from the creators of Magic The Gathering. The current offering is an offline pass and play experience only, but given the pedigree I would expect some pretty good things to come. And of course you should check out the extras at the bottom of this post. Now on to the main attraction…
Centrance’ entrance at TouchMyApps is the Mac mini-sized DACmini PX, an all-in-one DAC/headphone amp/power amp that plays with the big guys. Most of you already know Centrance and are familiar with their excellent USB DACs for guitar, microphone, and headphones. You know that their audio devices are free of noise. You know that they put on a steady and graceful show no matter what they are driving. You know that this review will end with a kiss.
Apple officially unveiled iOS 6 earlier today at the WWDC, calling it “The world’s most advanced mobile operating system”. Hardcore Android users and Google may beg to differ, but one thing’s for certain: iOS 6 will come loaded with over 200 new features, including an all-new Maps app, improved Phone functionality, a smarter and more capable Siri, and much much more. The next gen OS is set to drop this fall and will be compatible with the iPhone 3GS/4/4S, iPod Touch 4th gen, and iPad 2/3. Here are some of iOS 6′s more notable features:
When it comes to rumours of an iPhone 5 (new iPhone?) with a larger display, we’ve all heard it before. While past reports have speculated on a 4-inch display, Reuters today is reporting that the next iPhone will have a 4.6-inch retina screen and be released within several months.
Apple Inc’s new iPhone will have a sharper and bigger 4.6-inch “retina” display and is set to be launched around the second quarter, a South Korean media reported on Thursday.
Apple has decided on the bigger 4.6-inch display for its next iPhone and started placing orders to its suppliers, the Maeil Business Newspaper said, quoting an unnamed industry source.
It appears that Siri has all but confirmed that Japanese support for the iOS digital assistant will be coming soon. If you ask Siri now what languages she speaks, you’ll get the reply “I can speak French, English, Japanese, and German… but I’m always learning.”. That said, Japanese isn’t an option yet under Siri’s languages setting. For full support, that may not happen until the next iOS update (5.1). As for additional languages, the FAQ section for Siri states that more will be arriving in 2012, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, and Spanish. So if you’re an iPhone 4S user who speaks one of these languages, hopefully it won’t be much longer before you can whisper sweet nothings to Siri in your native tongue.
If you want radical sound from your iDevice, you could pop in Iggy Pop’s New Values. Or, if you can’t keep pace with Iggy, why not check out MF Player Pro-radical HiFi. It is a ‘radical’ break from the traditional clean-cut – and often labelled ‘sterile’ – Apple sound. It’s an HiFi app in every sense of the word, and it’s radical in all others. The most obviously radical feature of MF Player is its most radical price, a gnarly 1.999 pennies. And that’s the clincher, really.
But let’s not spoil the rave yet, my party animals. There is praise to get through first. Namely, there are too few apps that are seriously designed for iDevice audiophiles. EQu has been a favourite of mine till now, and Equalizer (TMA Review) has grown up to be nearly perfect. MF player sports some of the lovely effects of a parametric EQ, but also adds its own flavour. While there isn’t a parametric EQ built in, the effects of MF Player are only really attainable by very very expensive EQ hardware, or impeccable settings.
Korean accessories maker ego&company has unveiled what could be one of the more useful iPhone cases around. Dubbed the ego USB and part of the their “Hybrid Series”, this snap on iPhone 4/4S case has room for one ultraslim usb stick that slides in from the bottom. The sticks come in 5 colors and it appears the capacity is tied in with the actual color: skyblue (2GB), pink (4GB), red (8GB), yellow (16GB) and black (32GB). Pricing and availability info have yet to be released, but seeing how this clever combo could eliminate the need for carrying around an extra usb, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one.
Today’s Apps Gone Free includes a number of freebies, led by the recently released Manny Pacquiao: Pound for Pound and the fantastic Zombie Gunship. And EA’s Need For Speed Undercover is also free as part of their Daily Deals event, though it appears that the offer’s only good for iOS users outside US/Canada (it’s showing as free in UK store for instance). Dive in and take a look at the full list after the break.
And if you missed our freebies roundup yesterday, most featured in there are still showing as free!
