Remember Touchgrind, the excellent skateboard simulator? My fingers still dance awkward steps across my iPod when I’m looking up hard dictionary words like ‘cluster’ and ‘shill’ ’cause Touchgrind rocked them to the memory core. It made this crappy sk8tR into something special, and kept my hands busy in the best ways possible. Well, come this Spring, Illusian Labs will release its sequel, Touchgrind BMX. The same sort of free style physics will get things going on pipes and over rails from the relative safety of your iDevice. That means no more pinchin’ the biscuit. For now, enjoy the above video. We’ll have more as it comes.

appstore1yrOur favorite virtual candy store, aka the App Store, will turn 1 come July 11, 2009. Who would’ve thought that in such a short time span, over 50,000 apps would make their way onto the iDevice? While plenty of these are include useless fart, puke and other silly applications, we have come to bear witness to some excellent games that rival or even surpass those on the DS and PSP. To celebrate this 1 yr anniversary, Apple has released their 30 favorite Game and Non-game apps.

Needless to say, choosing 60 from the tens of thousands of quality apps to highlight the App Store’s birthday is no easy task. Personally, I think the list is pretty good, and will surely vary for each individual you ask. So what’s missing for you? For the complete Birthday Bash list, click here.

Up close and personal the iPhone’s bigger cousin: a large toucscreen table from touchtechIllusion Labs show off their unique hits, Touchgrind and Sway. We expect that this sort of productioin is what could be expected from Illusion Labs in particular and from other developers in general if Apple were to release a larger touch panel based product to market.

Both Sway and Touchgrind are favourites at TouchMyApps because of their unique use of the iDevice hardware and extremely polished gameplay. However, sside from feeding gamer’s fancies, a product with from Apple with a larger format touchscreen likely would lead a revolution that could disassociate the computer with the desk or the lap.

One YouTube commenter suggests that Final Cut, Apple’s high-end video editing software, would be more “natural” if navigated using a similar interface. While touch Surface[s] are not a new or novel idea, they have not really broken away in form or function from the Microsoft demos which are well, in typcial Microsoft flair, full of middle age wholesomeness. I leave you with Microsoft’s prosaic take on touchscreens – enjoy your nap!
