Flash on the iPhone – Flying Pigs Sighed over London

adobe_flash_logo

After Steve Jobs’s 2007 concession that Adobe’s Flash would be too slow on the iPhone and that a lite version wasn’t “capable enough to be used with the Web”, many potential users and even some Apple zealots were left in the cold.  Proper Flash and Java implementations are fundamental building blocks of the internet.  Since the launch of the iPhone, rumours and whispers of Flash and Java have tickled the ears of iPhone fans and users.  However, only recently have rumours from reputable sources trickled in from blogs and newssites – many of these sites rely heavily on Java and/or Flash interfaces.

Smack Boxing Lite Hits the App Store

smackboxing1Full Control ApS, the devs behind the iPhone’s first boxing game has released a ‘lite’ version of the light hearted and Punch Out like Smack Boxing. This free offering also coincides with the recent upgrade of the game to version 2.0, where a new career mode and a completely rewritten A.I awaits all challengers. Judging from the lite version, gameplay is rather intuitive, as you tilt left and right to move your boxer. Using the touch controls you, you tap the screen to jab, swipe left/right for hooks and upwards for an uppercut. There are also touch screen controls, where you simply tap the labeled buttons for the corresponding punches. If you enjoy boxing titles, try out the lite version here first. There’s a video of the game in action after the jump.

Remote in Review – A Perfect Extension to iTunes/ Apple TV

remote1Initially when Apple came out with its first iPhone/ iPod Touch app on the App Store, the Remote app, I just wasn’t interested in installing it, even though it was free. This was because whenever I was listening to music, I would be within reach of my computer, and therefore really don’t need the redundant control on my iPhone. However, when I recently bought an Apple TV to put next to my TV, I decided to give the application a go.

SlotZ Racer in Review – One Button of Pure Unadulterated Fun!!

slotz1Racing games.  It feels like I’ve played them since the beginning of time.  I remember playing Turbo on my ColecoVision (I know… what the heck is/was a ColecoVision?).  I played Pole Position and OutRun in the arcades, and the updated racers from Need for Speed, Forza to Burnout.  I don’t want to toot my own horn (no pun intended) but I’m pretty good at them…

Game Price Rises: How High Will You Go? Premium Apps

The App store is a wild success.  No one can deny that.  With over 15 000 apps, it is proving every major naysayer wrong.  However, there are many trends in the store.  Everyone is out for a quick buck and with some apps certainly requiring no more than a few hours programming, it is like a crowded lazy person’s lottery.  In fact I can story this with my own creation, iNails®.  It is super top secret — basically you just shake the iPhone near any wall and it will make fingernail-on-chalkboard sounds.  Naysayers beware, it will make me a rich man because the market is huge.  Idea thieves, beware, this is in before you thought of it!
