Year 2009 in retrospect by Apple – Best of Games and Apps

news-best-of-appstore-2009

Well, Apple’s grand 2009 is slowly coming to a close. The App Store hit the 100,000 app mark, and even big publishers have graced our favourite platform with some great titles. To mark the “Rewind 2009″ event, Apple have chosen 30 game and non-game apps they considered were the best of ’09, as well as listing the top sellers of the year. Before I publish the complete list I would like to note that I do not completely agree with them. And while it’s difficult to argue with sales numbers, the best apps and games rating is a bit baffling. That said, enjoy the “best of” after the break.

Disney at Work: Epcot in Review – an inspirational app!

Disney at Work 1

Disney at Work: Epcot is well outside most of the reviews I’ve done for TMA. It’s not a game, but in fact a learning tool. The goal of the app is to teach, and it succeeds pretty well in doing just that. What you get out of it really has more to do with what you’re looking for in it. Disney at Work teaches two things: a history of Epcot, and how you can use the lessons learned from that in your own life/career/business.

Well, really smart people (a group with which I have no relation) have dreamed up of a special class of software to help us poor sods get our minds in order.

review-mycomics-main

I love taking pictures. When digital cameras got bit on the market, I finally felt free! And when I got the iPhone, I was stunned by the rather good quality of the photos from it and even printed out quite a few of them. Since then, I’ve been taking pictures left and right and noticed that one of my favourite shots  is the panorama – you know, the extra wide or long shot which looks great for landscapes. Well, now you can do that on the iPhone!
