On 11 January, 2009, TouchMyApps got an exclusive sneak peak at the great new features of zerogate’s iPhone/iPod Touch App: MeterRead. On the same day and just 22 hours or so later, we got to speak a spoonful with the  wise, humorous and sassy father/son duo who make MeterRead. It is long, sometimes convoluted and extremely biased, but I think you will find this team to be witty, clever and ready to storm the app store with more unique ideas.

Black and beautiful: Shigzeo of TMA
Blue - Father (Leonard G. Barton)
Red – Son (Mark E. Barton)

Sneezies – Bubble Popping Fun in Review – Sneezing Made Fun

sneezies1Sneezies is perhaps one of the more adorably addictive games I have come across on the iPhone/iPod Touch. Developed by Antair Corporation, Sneezies is a unique title that can truly be enjoyed by all age groups. The premise of the game is very simple, yet highly effective nonetheless. You are presented with ‘Sneezies’ that are trapped in floating bubbles and your job is to free them by making them sneeze. In doing so, you will also create massive chain reactions of bubbles bursting that are accompanied by some sweet visuals and cute sound effects.

tiltafun1On the Rocks Productions has dropped by TouchMyApps and given us an exclusive Sneak Preview of Tiltafun, a soon to be released tilt controlled game for the iPhone/iPod Touch. On the Rocks maybe a new developer for the iPhone, but they certainly have some big plans for the App Store, including developing a platform game for the animated Feature ‘Thor‘.

Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience in Review – Not Really Flying…

wings1

When I heard about Wings 2: Flight Simulator Experience and saw some of the screenshots on iTunes, I had high expectations; the graphics were amazing!! It was like the screenshots were taken from a PSP or a PS2 even; just by showing me the graphics on a webpage it could never convince me that Wings 2 was a mobile phone grade application. I then immediately wanted to test it out, to see how great the program was.
