[ame=]YouTube - BulleTrain Trailer[/ame]​

BulleTrain, the first ever iPhone release from Downsized Games, is a non-stop shoot ‘em up game that lets the player show his or her ex-boss who’s boss. Despite being set way in the future in 2124, on a planet called Glendon-19, the game’s story is an all-too familiar tale these days, with lead character Miles Stone having his small shipping company shut down by the ruthless actions of Elaborate Acquisitions and the bullet trains. Left on the streets with nothing but his wits and a giant gun strapped to his delivery truck, Miles seeks payback against the bullet trains.

And if you think there might be more than a little truth behind the subject matter of the game and developer...

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage have been updated today in the App Store, with the new update offering Bluetooth capability for multiplayer game modes (for 2nd generation iPhone and iPod touch upwards and 3.x OS or better), enabling players to team up with others who have the same game on their respective devices and do battle in each of the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis classics.

Players who utilize multiplayer for Sonic The Hedgehog 2 can now choose between playing as Sonic or Tails as they cooperatively finish stages or race against each other on their way to defeating Dr. Eggman.

Streets of Rage, the classic 16-bit side-scrolling beat ‘em up, will also now allow cooperative gameplay since the update, so that players can tag-team their way through...

SlashGear has a feature today on a new app from Movea that turns your iPhone 4 into an Air Mouse that you can use for presentation and for HTPC use. The actual app that you need to turn your iPhone 4 into an Air Mouse only costs $1.99, which SlashGear points out is a bargain considering that the original Movea Air Mouse (which was just that, a mouse that you could use by waving it in the air rather than moving it across your desk) used to cost $99.00. The app works in conjunction with MotionTools software for the Mac and PC, and lets you control desktop apps by simply flicking your wrist. You name it, it does it, including scroll, pan and zoom, pen drawing, image stamps and highlighting. You can even turn the mouse cursor into a laser pointer or pen using the...

Ubergizmo reports today that UberTwitter (no relation!) has launched in the app store. Already a very popular Twitter app with BlackBerry users, I’m sure a lot of Twitter addicts will be very glad to see it now available for iPhone. According to UberTwitter, they’re the #1 Twitter client in the world, which is a big claim to make, but I’m sure they wouldn’t be saying it if it wasn’t true! So just what is so special about UberTwitter and why is it so popular with tweeters worldwide? It could be that in addition to the usual Twitter client basics, such as composing and sending tweets, direct messaging and embedded link shortening, UberTwitter for iPhone also offers something called UberView, which enables you to read tweets...

[ame=]YouTube - AirPrint On iOS From ANY PRINTER (No Special Printer Needed) - iOS Vlog 207[/ame]​

This video will show you how to AirPrint, print some thing from your iOS device to a wireless printer, without the need of a wireless printer. You can use any printer you have hooked up to your Mac. If you have an iMac that is hooked up to a printer 24/7, even better.

Printopia is a Mac App that will act as a middle man toward your printer. Instead of contacting your printer directly from your device when you press "print", you device contacts your Mac and then your Mac informs your printer of what is needed to be printed. While on your Mac you don't see anything running, Printopia is doing its thing in the background. Just...

Pocket Gamer reports that the worst kept secret in green-pig destroying circles has finally been confirmed by a Finnish TV station on its website – Angry Birds Christmas edition is on its way this December. There’s even a screenshot to prove it. Ah, someone has given the little pigs Christmas presents, how sweet! Now go ahead and destroy them, bird soldier!

The Angry Birds Halloween special edition for iPhone and iPad has been a huge success, with a million downloads in its first week of release, so it’s really no surprise at all that a Christmas version is in the works. Angry Birds Halloween was also the first Angry Birds game to be self-published by developers Rovio rather than previous publishers Chillingo, so it's more than likely that Rovio will also be...

The iPhone Dev Team has just released Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 today which brings first proper jailbreak, with working Cydia and MobileSubstrate for all iOS 4.2.1 devices.

For those of you who don’t know, Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 is based on Geohot’s Limera1n bootrom exploit which has already pwned all current iOS devices for life. The only problem is that it is a tethered jailbreak, which means you will have to boot it into a “jailbroken state” on every reboot. This so called tethered or semi-tethered jailbreak condition in Redsn0w 0.9.6b4 however only applies to the new devices like: iPhone 3GS (new bootrom), iPhone 4, iPad, iPod touch 2G (MC Model), iPod touch 3G and the iPod touch 4G. Old devices like iPhone 3GS (old bootrom), iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G (Non-MC Model) can be...
