I make my share of calls, send texts, and surf the Internet on my iPhone, but mostly I use the thing for playing games. I play way more games on my iPhone than I ever thought I would. With the iPhone being such a great gaming platform, I am always on the lookout for new games to try out. Today I am going to look at a game called Deer Hunter 3D. This game is one of my arcade favorites so read on for all the details on the Deer Hunter 3D for the iPhone.
In all likelihood you have upgraded to to a new iPhone everytime they come out. If that sounds like you, you probably have a couple of old models lying around. Why not start a server farm? Sound good?
Created by Japan’s FreeBit, the prototype above is to promote the ServersMan app, which gives iPhone users the ability to use their phone as network storage, file viewer or even a mini web server. Why not? They’re just laying around.
You have an iPhone and a hankering for some sweet Pizza Hut Pizza. What do you do? Well first you need to get Pizza Hut’s just unveiled new iPhone App. What other app will let you order food AND play a racing game? Suck on that Dominoes.
The app is as gimmicky as you might expect. Don’t believe me? When you order wings, you don’t just order wings. You need to shake your phone to get the wings covered in sauce. I guess that way, you only have yourself to blame if they taste like crap.
We are all consumers. There’s no getting around it. We rely on massed produced products in every part of our lives. Some consumers want to know if the product they are buying is cruelty-free or not. There’s really no need to have an animal suffer in order to sell us a product, so many choose not to support such companies.
PETA has your back with an iPhone app to help you identify cruelty-free products. The app is called “Be Nice To Bunnies” and is available for $1.99 on iTunes. Check out a video below.
We knew the iSaw was a hoax, but we had no idea just how awesome and clever a ploy this really was, with a truly worthwhile message. If you placed a pre-order, here’s the message you received:
I would have to say that the number one reason for the iPhone’s dominance is the sheer usefulness that the apps provide. And here’s another useful trick that the iPhone has up it’s sleeve: You can use it as a hearing aid.
The $10 SoundAMP app lets you use the iPhone to enhance the sounds around you. CNET’s Rick Broida spent some time with the SoundAMP and he says that all you do is fire up SoundAMP and plug in a pair of earphones, then just raise or lower the oversize slider until you get the volume you want. Apparently it even has a kind of “audio DVR” feature that lets you replay the last 5 or 30 seconds of a conversation just by tapping an onscreen button.
Anyone who owns an iPhone will tell you the best thing about the device is the App Store and the slew of free and paid games and applications available to add to the iPhone experience. The App Store has been so successful that most every other smartphone maker is now offering its own application store.
Sirius XM Satellite Radio has announced that its iPhone App is now the top free app in the music category. The app has been downloaded 1 million times in the two weeks since it was available starting on June 18.
Great news for Apple TV users. The iPhone 3.0 version of the Remote app now supports Apple TV controls with gesturing, which will give you a lot more flexibility than the standard little Apple Remote you already have.
According to Techcrunch, the entire experience is dramatically improved, allowing you to slide around on the phone to move the screen, while the keyboard makes it handy to type searches in quickly.
Well that didn’t take long. Just the other day we reported that Palm had reached 700,000 downloads and today we are up to a million. That’s pretty amazing. Especially when you consider that less than 30 applications were available from the App Catalog for a single device, which is available only on Sprint in the US.
While we don’t have any official numbers from Palm, the figure comes from industry analysts who suggest that 150,000 Pre devices were shipped since the June 6th retail introduction. That’s an average of about seven apps downloaded per phone.
Printers are fairly boring, but HP is looking to shake things up with the “world’s first web-connected printer.” The Photosmart Premium features a 4.33-inch front panel dubbed the Touchsmart Web, a touchscreen interface with several bundled, online apps to accommodate all of your paper-friendly tasks.
It even has a full-on HD Apps Studio just in case downloading new apps on your printer really takes off. The API’s being made open for the entire realm of developers, but it remains to be seen if the interest is there. It will cost you $399.
There is an app for everything on the App Store for the iPhone. You can find free games, applications to keep track of your finances, and applications to keep track of how many calories you eat each day. If you are trying to get fit and want to use your gadgets to meet your goals, the iPhone can do that too.
Men’s Health has announced a new iPhone app called Men’s Health Workouts that is available now on the App Store for $1.99. The App offers 18 exclusive workouts and over 125 exercises from the world’s top strength coaches, athletes, and fitness experts.
Email ‘N Walk is a new iPhone app that’s designed to replace the plain white background of the email application into a live view of the camera. It’s for those types who write email while walking. Great for watching where you’re going through the camera lens.
That will help you to not walk into lamp-posts, capture the cute rear of a girl in front of you, or get a shot of that rare rogue chicken that crosses your path before it crosses the road. There’s also the occasional roadkill, which will look great as a background.
iVisit is working on an application called SeeScan that can help blind people identify everyday objects around them, which we take for granted. The program uses your cameraphone to detect objects using image recognition software, while reading aloud what the phone identifies it as.
There are many practical applications, like telling the difference between denominations of paper money for example. It could certainly make life easier for the blind and may help them speed up some of their activities during their typical day.
On the heels of RIM adding a push API, Google is enabling some BlackBerry users to get their Gmail and Google Calendar stuff on their handsets. Don’t jump for joy just yet. There are some shortcomings that limit its usefulness. Like the fact that users have to be connecting to BlackBerry Enterprise Server instances, and those instances have to be backed by Microsoft Exchange.
Also, only 250 users per Enterprise Server instance can get their mobile Gmail on, changes made to appointments on a handset cannot be pushed back to Google Calendar. Plus, searching for Gmail messages still requires a separate app. Updates and improvements are on the way, but until then this is what you get.
Someone created an application to detect metal using the Android G1. This isn’t because the G1 is so much more awesome than other smartphones. It’s done through clever use of the built-in compass. A compass detects the magnetic field of the Earth.
Sadly it won’t help you find treasure at the beach. Think of it more like the ones they use in airports. The kind that let you magically pass your hands over someone’s body to see if they are hiding metal somewhere. Which is great I guess. If you are security in the lowest budget airport ever.
