A few days ago I had a video on a new tweak called "Barrel". Barrel is $2.99 in the Cydia store and great tweak to have for any iDevice modder. The tweak basically changes the way your homescreen pages act when you are swiping through them. With the newest update, you get two new transitions that add a different animation to your pages. Check out the video for the way they act.
I love how Google always has silly names for their features, like Google Goggles, and Google Doodles of course! Google Doodles are the little decorations around the Google logo on the Google search page, often with a relevant theme celebrating a specific event. They have actually been around since 1998, but as the Google Mobile Blog explains today, the doodles have been almost exclusively featured on the desktop search engine, with very few on the mobile Google search page. Thats all about to change though, as the blog proudly announces that Google Doodles have arrived for iOS 3+ devices worldwide, and that from now on, virtually all of the desktop doodles will have a corresponding mobile version. To see one of the doodles on your iOS device, when they appear, all...
Cult petrol-head BBC TV programme Top Gear is coming to the iPhone and iPad according to Pocket Gamer, with a game called Top Gear: Stunt School, which is currently in development at Resolution Interactive, and is set to be released before the end of the year. The game marks the BBCs return to the world of video games, also set to include a Doctor Who iOS game. While Im sure Top Gear fans will be delighted with the news, lets hope that the game is better than the BBCs last attempt at handheld gaming , which Pocket Gamer reminds us was the less-than-stellar Fightbox for Nintendos Game Boy Advance, released back in 2004.
Top Gear: Stunt School sees the player taking charge of a fully customisable vehicle and driving it through 20 challenges, such as high...

Superstar Games Munkey Vs Ninjas is the tale of a classic miss-match hundreds of stealthy, acrobatic, banana-stealing ninjas against just one monkey called, um, Munkey!
