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. Whatever the reason, I decided to take a look at Photogene…

Upon starting this game, I was filed with hesitation and a little doubt. Would I be able to handle the cutesy graphics without the rise of self-loathing? Would the gameplay be engaging? Despite my apprehension, I can confidently say that this is a game I am enjoying. There’s something about Bugz that gets under your skin, and this is definitely not a bad thing.
Just in case your iPhone suffers infiltration (Today’s E90 report), there are deadly weapons of revenge at your disposal. The first and safest option is to rollback to Apple Firmware until the the smoke settles and the digital fugitives are either caught or sentenced retirement with former President Bush. The second option is to take revenge with a little sniping of your own.
As reported by Today’s E90, snipers may have already landed in a jailbreaked iPhone or iPod Touch near you. According to the article, whilst tinkering with the calender in the /var/root section, nao, Today’s E90’s author found a suspect .* directory. Any directory beginning with a full stop is invisible to the ls command unless appended with -a. Nao found it because he usually appends the -a extension and was able to discover the directory. The source of the attack remains unclear.
At the moment, there seems to be no other commotion over this attack however, the threat remains. Do not store sensitive documents on your Jailbreaked iPhone especially if this is not an isolated incident. Apple Firmware users have yet to worry about this however, that does not mean the threat does not exist.
Ten One Design, creator of pogo stylus and pogo sketch stylus for the iPod Touch and iPhone have brought out SoundClip, a new device that passively brightens the sound of the iPhone’s built in speaker. According to them, it is no magic trick, just a bit of good science:
The way SoundClip works isn’t all that hard to understand. The iPhone emits a fair amount of acoustic energy through the speaker. Unfortunately, many of these sound waves are directed down and away from the user. SoundClip reflects them toward you so you can hear them better.
But how does it actually amplify? The dimensions and shape of the conical chamber create a resonance chamber facilitating the attenuation of some frequencies, and the amplification of others. The next part is the trickiest. We tuned the resonance chamber to actually improve the sound from your iPhone, resulting in a frequency response that is flatter, and more natural sounding.
