Princeton, NJ – ALK Technologies today announced that it has submitted CoPilot Live HD to the App Store, a turn-by-turn GPS navigation and trip planning app designed specifically for 3G models of Apple’s iPad. With street maps stored on the device, CoPilot Live HD takes full advantage of the iPad’s in-built GPS receiver and high resolution touch screen to provide the ultimate large-screen voice-guided navigation experience.
Windeck-Rosbach, Germany – EUROCOMP today proudly announces the release of an update to its well-acclaimed Computer Algebra System PocketCAS for the iPhone and iPod touch. The new version adds support for Apple’s new tablet computer, the iPad. The user interface has been completely reworked for the iPad in order to display well on the larger screen, making use of popovers for a stunning interface.
The development community have wrapped 140 000 apps under their collective belt; Apple have seen 3 billion apps downloaded from the App store; and the hitherto iconic iPod is fading into Apple’s focal background even as it surpasses an impressive number of its own: 250 million units sold. Steve Jobs and Apple haven’t made any promises – the iPad isn’t even at market yet. But it has pulled at myriad heartstrings: it has grabbed the spotlight. But why is it important and is it worthwhile to buy, and if so, who will benefit from it?
When I gets excited, I drop me grammar. Apple ain’t only gonna put up a new event, they is definitely debuting something. I reckon the ‘come see our latest creation’ ain’t just a new MacBook – though with my bloody breaking MBP, that would be nice – it will prolly be something ever more sexy. Think iSlate. Ain’t nothing confirmed yet, but the web’s knickers are all bunched up about the same thing: Apple’s iSlate tablet computer.
Bad Apple. How can you blind your faithful fans with happy lights whilst causing the frowns of your competitors? How can you sit back feigning that ain’t nothing happening and meanwhile sink the world’s OLED touch screen tugboat?
Tonnes of pre-launch skepticism was ineffectual in condemning the iPhone to an early grave. And two and a half years later, no amount of individual scorn will unearth Apple’s staunch defence of its core apps. Both legitimate and illegitimate devs feel the sting of Apple’s “duplicate functionality” clause which refuses alternatives such to Safari, Mail, etc.. So while there is no dearth of silly one-line apps, Apple’s crash-prone web-browser and the horribly stilted Mail app stand alone on the platform, providing users with strapped-down versions of their desktop partners which boast less-than-stellar performance and feature sets. Apple’s stringent insistence that core apps shalt have no rival eschews the iDevice horribly. So, while on the one hand, the iDevice enjoys a 53% online market share [TechCrunch], it does so at the expense of its own functionality.
There is simply nothing more exciting than new hardware announcements from Apple. If this rumour from the Taiwanese Infotimes is to be believed, 1st-generation touch screen based hardware from the Cupertino company could be in the hands of Apple’s faithful by October. As part of that faithful, I am counting my pennies now and have come up short by about 20 000.
Brushes, by Steve Sprang is no slouch when it comes to digital pixel art. I reviewed it and loved it – in fact, Grabbed it; but imagine if, instead of the zombie-head drawn by yours truly, a masterpiece could have been brushed? Artist Jorge Colombo has done just that. Hitherto, painting iPhone painting apps have been simple doodlers for the bored. Brushes, which will surely inspire imitators from around the web, is a masterpiece itself; it is the raw material for artists in a new age.
Dead Donkey hath again been beaten; by, it seems, a magnificent in AT&T, who by disclosing to Boygenius the nature of another rumour, however shallow, may have made his or her position, redundant in the unlikely circumstance that Apple or AT&T, become perturbed at another negligent slip of the tongue. Much ado has been made regarding, of course, the iPhone, which being in its very nature a company defining weapon of secrecy, needs at the very least, sustained and unpromulgated confidentiality. TouchMyApps, in accordance with rumour sites, news aggregates and feeds, feel that great gravity should be employed when breaking upon such rumours. The reason we so deem, being in our nature an iPhone-dedicated site, is that rumours are at core, useful in conveying vain hints, desires or at worst, the obvious.
This ‘rumour’ is that of the latter type.
Apparently I spoke too soon last week when I cried that the Christmas like flow of games had ended for now. I could probably write double my normal size article this week and still have games I’d want to cover to spare. Anyway, Tiny Death is a new platform game that’s sure to resonate well with former – or current – console gamers. Cute graphics, decent level design and a nice sense of humor may not make this game worth dying for, but it would certainly be prudent to check it out. Disney has upped the ante for cute physics puzzlers once again with the release of Where’s My Water? 2. You can expect more game play elements, additional quirky characters and I even hear rumors of gravity manipulation. If you can’t get enough of infinite runners you’ll definitely want to check out Infectonator : Hot Chase. This sequel to Infectonator takes the action to an infinite side scrolling format, but you still get to turn people into zombies.
