There is a word I rarely use when reviewing a game: exceptional. Yet, Blue Attack! rightly deserves this description. John Kooistra has managed to create a game that reaches a level of polish, gameplay, and affordability that sets it apart from most others in the SHMUP (Shoot ‘em up) genre and within the landfill that is the App Store. This is one game that definitely rises above the rest.
Load times. Memory. Indirect links. iTunes is a glorious application but with its numerous functions, even in OSX it is not as fast as it was just months ago. Widows Windows users have a right to complain, it is slow in Vista or XP and probably in the upcoming Windows 7 Widows, but now, Apple are causing disbelief even among their most loyal followers: the Mac faithful.

Word games, we’ve all played them. Crossword puzzles, Scrabble, Boggle etc etc. I’ve honestly never been a huge fan of these type of games, but for some reason, I really enjoy them on my Touch. Either I’m getting wiser with age, or these games translate beautifully on this device. Maybe it’s both…
Are you one to make use of your iPhone camera often and wish there was an easier way to print these photos without resorting to first uploading and opening all kinds of photo editing programs on your computer? If so, then you should definitely check out Air Photo Wifi Printing. This app basically cuts out the middleman and allows you to choose which photo to print right from your iPhone’s camera roll. I had a chance to test it out and found it to work just as advertised on both my Macbook and PC.
Not long ago, TouchMyApps gave you an exclusive first look at Tiltafun, an adorable looking tilt controlled game developed by On the Rocks. Well the game has finally arrived at the App Store and being their first app release for the iPhone/iPod Touch, On the Rocks has come through with a simple yet fun and well designed game in Tiltafun.
I was a little sceptical when this category of apps debuted on the iPhone/ iPod Touch platform. The reason was because I have access to my computer every day, and when I know I have taken photos with my device, I’ll immediately sync them back with iPhoto. So I was thinking “why do photo editing on the phone when I have a 20” screen at home and iPhoto?” Well, apparently, some people don’t have access to a computer on a daily basis, or that they are always on the road, or just wish to modify the photo with friends on the spot.
