Facebook has today issued a statement refuting claims that the official Facebook iPhone app uploads all the phone numbers in a user’s Phonebook to Facebook without warning. Macworld reports that a Facebook spokeswoman told the Mail Online that only the user can see their Phonebook on Facebook, just as with any other online phonebooks or email lists that people are already familiar with using.

The initial privacy scare had been sparked by an extremely detailed (and...

Fans of the Emmy-nominated TV series NUMB3RS can now get even more immersed in the crime-solving action with Chillingo’s new game for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, in which they get to take on the role of an FBI consultant tasked to bring down a sinister criminal network in Los Angeles.
Developed by indie game developer Apocalypse Train, the NUMB3RS game is a winning combination of action and logic, as players face an array of mathematical puzzles and mini-games. Popular characters from the show, including Charlie and Don Eppes, Amita Ramanujan and Larry Fleinhardt all interact with you, the player, as you attempt to solve one of the agency’s biggest cases.

The game is characterised by its math-based...

If your a fan of Gameloft, you should have no problem loving this game. Gameloft is known for making some of the great 3D and graphic intense game you see in the App Store today. Gameloft is starting to take even a bigger step with this new Retina display we have. This game is a perfect example of what the iPhone is capable of.

Modern Combat 2 is nothing short of spectacular. If you liked the first Modern Combat, chances are you will love this one as well. This game is action packed with a whole bunch of new features. One of the biggest new features in the game is the gyroscope controls option. While this may be a little hard to get used to, it is still a great feature to have.

Basically, just like any...

If you thought the 2D, old school Sonic franchise was over, think again. Sonic is back but he's packing a bit more than 16 bits. Sonic The Hedgehog 4 just made it the that App Store, after playing it for a bit, it feels like I'm in a time machine. This game packs a load of similarity to ancestors and even some old(but changed) levels.

The game comes with a bit of a changed 3D look, especially to our hedgehog hero. You can do all of the same maneuvers you would usually do in the Sega game, along with having a lock-on indicator of where you will shoot your body by tapping "A" again it the air. There are old enemies to beat again and new ones to meet. But in the end, you really have to decide if this old school...

EA announced today that it’s bringing Heroes Lore, the #1 mobile RPG franchise from Korea, to the iPhone and iPod touch. In the game, the player gets to choose between playing as one of two characters, either fighting for the once-magical sky- kingdom of Neo-Soltia as Kei, or championing the Kingdom of Askra as Rits. Whichever side you choose to fight on, you can expect to enjoy over 30 hours of old-school RPG action, filled with virtually limitless maps, challenging quests, and fierce foes.

The single-player story mode extends over six detailed locations, from the Soltian Forest to the Enzak Desert, and there are also four major cities to explore. Every location is chock full of monsters, some of whom are nice, and some of whom are not so nice!

When it comes...

Redmond Pie has some fresh information today for everyone patiently (and not so patiently), awaiting the iOS 4.1 jailbreak. Although they still don’t have a release date (sorry!), they have found out a very juicy snippet of information, namely that Chronic Dev Team hacker p0sixninja has confirmed via an answer to a question on Twitter that GreenPois0n will have the ability to “Hactivate” iPhone 4 and bypass iTunes’ activation screen so that the phone can be used without a SIM. This has prompted Redmond Pie to proclaim that the GreenPois0n low-level SHAtter exploit-based tool will be “pwning all iOS devices ever released for life", 'cause it's just that good!

Those interested in jailbreaking their iPhone can only hope that this latest piece of news is true, while...

iLounge reports that Panasonic has launched a new digital photo frame, the MW-20, which features an iPhone/iPod dock. It really does sound like a state of the art piece of kit, featuring a 9-inch high-resolution screen, 5.6-mm Super Slim Semi Dome Speaker, SD card slot, 2GB of internal storage, built-in digital signal processor for improved sound, and an environmentally conscious power-saving feature, with a luminance sensor that adjust the brightness of the screen automatically depending on how well-lit the room is. It will even shut itself off if the room is dark. As far as the actual iPhone/iPod touch dock attatchment is concerned, it not only charges your device, it also plays back your iPhone photos, videos and music. Here’s David Fisher, product manager,...

The Google Mobile Blog has announced that the Google Mobile App for iPhone has been updated to include the Google Goggles feature, which uses your iPhone to help you to find out more about your surroundings simply by taking photos. To use Google Goggles in the updated version of the app, simply tap on the camera button to search with Goggles. Goggles will then analyze the image, highlighting anything that it recognises. You can then click on those results to find out more about the object, or place, highlighted.

The blog is very honest in saying that Goggles isn’t quite perfect yet, as although it is very effective when it comes to recognising landmarks, logos, books, DVD and game covers, it doesn’t yet work...

PayPal has updated its iPhone app today so that it will now accept checks via iPhone camera, according to TechCrunch, which interviewed PayPal’s Laura Chambers at TechCrunch’s Disrupt conference in San Francisco. Chambers told the conference that with the updated app, the user will simply have to take a photo of the front and back of a check with their iPhone camera, to have the amount of the check added to their PayPal balance.
Some banks already have this facility, of course, and have done for some time, and Chambers points out that the facility was actually first introduced after the 9/11 attacks in New York, when so much of the financial infrastructure of the US was either shut down on purpose or hampered by the sudden demands on its systems. Legislation was...
