If you’ve been following the rumours surrounding the iPhone 5, you probably read that its screen could be anywhere from its current 3.5″ to 4.6 inches. While the latter seems like long shot for various reasons, a 4″ screen does appear to be a more logical choice. iLounge first reported this very size back in November of 2011, and in new and recent post, the website has provided some detailed dimensions on the next gen iPhone. According to their sources, the iPhone 5 will indeed sport a 4″ screen (while keeping same width as the 4/4S) and be 20% thinner (9.3mm vs 7.4mm) than its predecessor.
Scanner Pro, one of the most popular portable document scanner and business apps for the iPhone, is now compatible with the iPad (2nd and 3rd gen) thanks to the 4.0 update today. Redesigned from the ground up, users can finally take snap shots of their receipts, documents and notes and turn them into PDFs on their iPads. Scans can also be uploaded to Dropbox, Evernote (add tags and choose notebooks) and GoogleDocs for added convenience. Also new are the revamped processing engine (image processing is even faster now), folder management and ability to search by name and date. The Scanner Pro 4 update is now available and free for those who’ve already purchased the app, or $6.99 for new users.
Readdle, Scanner Pro - $6.99
Highborn (TMA Review), one of my personal favorite Turn Based Strategy games on the iPhone, has just been updated with Chapter 2 as an in-app purchase ($0.99 for iPhone, $1.99 for iPad version). This eagerly anticipated follow up will bring forth 8 new missions, new enemies and allies and various new structures. Aside from the IAP, the update also includes multiple new features for the game in general:
- Improved 3D unit artwork and models;
- Units now display their attack range during movement;
- Monoliths now display which spell they control and a cool-down timer;
- End-of-mission statistic screen with information on turns taken, enemies killed, number of structures captured and lost, and more;
- SHAKE TO UNDO! This highly requested feature has been added to the single-player campaign, allowing players to undo their entire previous turn.
For those of you who enjoyed the game earlier on, the 2nd chapter should be an easy buy at only a buck. Otherwise you can always pick up Highborn on the iPhone (chapter 1) for $0.99, or download the free lite version to see if it’s your cup of tea. Videos and more info after the gap.
