A look at Movie Challenge: You think you know your movies?

Movie Challenge, developed by Redwind Software, is a recently released movie game for the iPhone. Looking around the App Store, there appears to be quite a few such trivia games out there already. While I personally haven’t tried the others just yet, most of them offer what seems to be limited styles of play. This is where Movie Challenge steps up to the plate. Redwind Software has designed the game with loads of features in mind. Besides a trivia mode where the user must choose the correct answer out of x number of questions (as seen in most trivia games), Redwind offers multiple game types:

New Google Speech Recognition App delayed by Apple?

Google was set to release what could very well be one of the most useful apps for the iPhone, a speech recognition tool that would return search results simply based on your speech. Say “movie showtimes” and based on your location, the app will return results of movies closest to you. Basically, instead of typing what you want searched, just say it. It’s that simple. Another cool feature of this updated Google Mobile App is that it uses the iPhone accelerometer. So when the phone is raised to the user’s ear, it will go into “listen” mode.

The supposed release date was set for November 14. Now a day later and still no sight of it at the App Store, there are rumors that Apple may possibly be delaying its release or even blocking it for some reason of their own. Are they planning on releasing their own version of speech recognition? Of course, it is way too early to say for sure what Apple’s plans are for Google’s product, if any at all. Hopefully, the app will be released any minute now so we can all search with our voice, and not just our fingers.

Want to speed up your jailbroken iPhone?

When I first jailbroke my iPhone 3G, I spent loads of time downloading cool looking themes via Winterboard and trying them out. Some themes were a real treat to look at, but there were stability problems (some themes seemed to slow the iPhone down more than others). Eventually, the novelty wore off and I went back to using the stock springboard theme.

Though I had stopped using themes, I didn’t actually delete winterboard from cydia. By this time, my iPhone felt sluggish and everything seemed slower than pre-jailbreak. That’s when I came across a post on iPhoneinCanada suggesting uninstalling Winterboard
to speed things up once again. I can’t say for sure how much faster my iPhone is now after deleting Winterboard, but I would say anywhere from 30%-50% faster! Needless to say, if you find your jailbroken iPhone slowing you down and can live without those shiny looking themes, try uninstalling Winterboard. Personally, I much prefer stability and speed to just looks. Give it a try and see if this works out for you.
