AppAdvice has some good news for literate iPad fans: Project Gutenburg with its 30 000 free titles will be pre-loaded onto the App Store’s iBooks app for iPad. There are compelling reasons for this. Firstly, free books shouldn’t be made profit of as they have been at the App Store and sold at 99 cents per. The public domain has no place with profit and for many reasons wouldn’t exist if at the beck-and-call of swindlers.

American Fork, Utah – The latest update (1.5.2) to the popular iPhone mileage log application, MileBug, was submitted to Apple for review at approximately 9:00am MDT, and was approved at 3:11pm MDT, just over 6 hours later. This is amazing response time for update approval.
MileBug 1.5.2 is now available for half off the regular price. Only $1.99 through April 15th as a special Tax Time Sale to make next year’s taxes that much easier, and the tax returns that much larger. MileBug was recently featured in the What’s Hot section of 57 App Stores worldwide this January as it rose to #2 in Finance. First released in August 2008, MileBug has been a consistent presence in the App Store, was featured on the many banners at Apple’s WorldWide Developers’ Conference last June, and has been seen in the window displays at different Apple stores.
If Apple and Google are having it out, Adobe and Apple, who have had rough hits regarding Adobe’s proprietary Flahs, are having it out too. Steve Jobs (cue heavenly fanfare) has said Adobe’s software isn’t stable on OSX, but now Adobe are at Apple’s neck, saying it is an Apple problem. When will this silliness ever end? According to Zdnet, Adobe’s CEO, Shantanu Narayen, has this to say of the situation:
“We’ve been fairly transparent,” said Narayen. “We’re committed to bringing flash to any platform with a screen. This has nothing to do with technology. It’s an apple issue and you’ll have to check in with them.”
More Flash goodness/badness after the gap:

Update: Sketch Nation Shooter is now live on the App Store
To date I’ve only done a few reviews of what I would consider “old school” 2D scrolling shooters such as Underground. However the ones I have reviewed and/or own have been great recreations of a classic style of game play that proves the point that when it comes down to it, content is what really matters. In an age of 3D, 4D, l-m-n-o-p-d-…, it’s nice to see simple succeed. Recently I was able to get my hands on a beta copy of an upcoming app store game Sketch Nation Shooter (SNS) by developer Engineous Games. Sketch Nation Shooter is a clever fusion of art and gaming and some creative social networking. Read on to see what I thought of this innovative title. Feel free to discuss this (p)review of Sketch Nation Shooter in our forums.
