After its initial rejection, the lite version released and then pulled, and a good six months wait, IUGO’s A.D.D. (Addictive Dumb Distractions), has finally been released. IUGO’s catalogue contains many successful titles such as Cliffed and Implode! to which A.D.D. has been added. Addictive Dumb Distractions features 70+ fastpaced minigames, similar to that of Warioware which can be played in three modes: Quickplay, Practice, and Hardcore. There is also an online leaderboard to fuel friendly competition.
Update: Our massive Black Friday Apps Bargain round up can be found Here
Pack your bags, sell your children (if you have any), Black Friday is nearly upon us!
November 27′s festivities will culminate in the trampling death of at least one unwary American shopper at the hands of bloodthirsty doorbuster shoppers. As the season of good cheer approaches, the season of robbing/theft/murder will parade the streets along with the mob of angry, drooling 4 AM cut-throat bargain shoppers.
To get ahead in the game, Ecatcher, Inc. has released a helpful app known as TGI Black Friday which will help you find the best deals from the biggest boxes such as Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and tons more. The UI is simple, elegant, and makes the job of finding those deals possible.
So, if you’re like me, start planning now, and write your will just to be safe.
Good luck and may the force be with you.
I adore my iPhone 3GS with all my heart, so much so that I shed a tear and cringed when I attempted to watch a video of Jory Caron microwave it. I have never contemplated eating my iPhone, let alone cooking it, so let’s leave it to Jory to do one of those two.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Jory Caron and his “microwave laboratory”, he goes by the YouTube name JPizzle1122 and quite a name he has made for himself indeed – being in the top 100 of most subscribed. It seems blending things and microwaving objects has become a rather popular trend nowadays, seeing as the Blendtec guy has successfully blended an iPhone down to toxic powder.
A few weeks ago I decided to upgrade from a Sony Ericsson phone to an iPhone 3GS. While the extra $30 a month data plan won’t keep me out of college, the additional $20 unlimited texting plan just might. Thankfully, Textfree Unlimited is here to solve that problem, and for just a one time fee of $6, it’s a heck of a lot better than paying an extra $240 a year simply to text my friends.

Oh, how far we’ve come. It seems just like yesterday (maybe because it was yesterday), that I asked myself if GarageBand, or at least some form of it, would make its way onto the iDevice. Well, my friends, there is in-fact an app for that, and it goes by the name of Xewton Music Studio.
I have always fathomed of becoming a chef one day. Believe it or not, the Food Network is the only channel I watch on T.V. nowadays. Why I will never pursue my dream of becoming a chef can be summed up into one game – Cooking Dash, by PlayFirst.
Another day, another Gameloft game release. The game company has come a long way with much success. My thumbs are blistered and my wrists bloodless and the culprit is one of Gameloft’s excellent games. The latest bloodletting addition to Gameloft’s pantheon of time consuming games is Blades of Fury.
Having just recovered from the sheer awe of Gangstar, my sanity is threatened again by yet another awesome cat which Gameloft just pulled from the proverbial bag: Modern Combat: Sandstorm (MC: S). Saying MC: S is a FPS (first person shooter) with nice 3D graphics would be an understatement. MC: S is one of the most realistic App Store games to date; a game with a fantastic story line, voiceovers, amazing sound effects – saying that would just about cover the tip of the iceberg.
Back in the good ol’ jailbreaking days of firmware 1.1.1, the iPod touch was my main source of media entertainment. 2 years later I have given up jailbreaking but I’m constantly reminded of the apps that made jailbreaking worthwhile. One of these apps was PocketTouch, which allowed you to blindly control music without using the Music app. Amazing Pocket Control – SightFree iTunes snuck into the App Store beneath everybody’s radar. I’d not heard of it before and no one really talks about it – I wonder why?
I would like to consider myself a bit of an iPhoneographer, considering I’ve had an iPhone for around a year and have taken over 700 pictures with it. There’s a plethora of photo editing apps on the App Store, even ones which can be considered “portable PhotoShops”. While regular photo editing apps let you tweak around with the RBG and contrasts of pictures, I still find the majority lacking that extra bit of “flare” which show off the capabilities of the iDevice. One sub-section of iPhoneography that is pretty much absent in the App Store is hologram effect apps (mainly because it’s impossible to perfectly replicate a hologram on the iDevice). Well, Holograms by Mach Kobayashi (the genius behind the dice physics engine in WordFu possible), lets you create the closest thing to a real hologram in a matter of seconds.
