The first Aqua Moto Racing iPhone game was a big hit with critics and fans alike, with many calling it the best water racing game around for the iPhone, so Resolution Interactive had a lot to live up to when it came to making the sequel, but they certainly seem to have managed to pull it off, and fans of the first game shouldn't hesitate to grab this one from the iTunes App Store.

The game uses state-of-the-art wave physics to produce gorgeous visuals across six exotic locations with different daylight, including the Tropics, Greece and Egypt. There's plenty of variety to the gameplay, with a huge Career mode consisting of 14 championships. Players will get the chance to race across 48 challenging...

If you purchased your iPhone 4 at a Best Buy retailer, it looks like you will be eligible for a free ZAGG invisibleSHIELD valued at $9.99, according to Engadget. The invisibleSHIELD is a third-party accessory similar in function to Apple's 'Bumpers', theoretically solving that nasty antenna issue. iPhone users are reporting that they are receiving notices to pick up their free invisibleSHIELDs now, and hey, who doesn't like free stuff? If you haven't received a notice, yet did purchase your iPhone at Best Buy, head down to your local store and see what the retailer will do for you. Also, it wouldn't hurt to...

Today I received an email from Apple telling me that my iPhone 4 Bumper has shipped. These are the complimentary cases and Bumpers that Apple promised at their Antennagate press conference. On the order page it tells you that they will ship in the next 3-5 weeks, but not for some people. People like myself have been receiving their shipping confirmation emails early. Hopefully it doesn't take too long to get here so I can get that Bumper review out to your guys. I smell an iPhone4Forum Giveaway coming!

6 Comments has an interesting report today about something called a "Digital Agenda", which may possibly result in Apple being forced to allow Flash on its devices. According to the report, the EU (European Union) Commission launched a "Digital Agenda" for Europe back in May, which lays down seven ICT-related goals for the next ten years. Priority 2 of the 7 is the one that has caught Kokeytechnology's eye, particularly the part where it says: "To allow people to create, combine and innovate we need ICT products and services to be open and interoperable." Commissioner for the Agenda, Neelie Kroes, explained this clause further in an interview with EurActiv, in which she said the following:

Yes, it's free iPhone game time again, and what with "free", "zombie" and "ninja" being three of a gamer's favourite words, I just know you'll be rushing to check it out asap on the app store. And in fact, the game has actually been designed by its makers, Fabrication Games, to cunningly lure the innocent iPhone gamer into its thrall by shamelessly dangling some of our favourite words in front of us. Fabrication Games believes that it has come up with "the most wanted iPhone game ever", based on research by The Game Trail, a video-based app-discovery app, which lets gamers see games in action before they buy. Fabrication has used this data to come up with a game based on the most popular search strings, with the end result being Free Zombie Hero - Kill...

Star Trek fans, get ready to engage with a brand new official app, called Star Trek Captain's Log, that basically turns your iPhone 4 into a Star Trek-inspired Star Fleet comunicator. Fans can use the communicator app to capture voice recordings, as well as making text entries, taking photos and mapping GPS locations of their "voyages" around planet Earth. Officers can select their preferred Enterprise class level, choosing from Captain, Engineering, Science/Medical, Enterprise, or even assuming the identity of an enemy Romulan or Kingon officer.

The app, which costs $1.99, also enables the user to share their logs with their friends on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and via email, or they can choose to keep them as private personal records if they...

Washing has finally declared iPhone, iPod Touch, etc. Jailbreaking to be legal. The E.F.F. (Electronic Frontier Foundation) has been fighting for its legality for some time now. iDevice Jailbreaking has always been in a bit of a grey area. But now, thanks to D.C. passing this, we can all Jailbreak our devices without having to worry about Napster police coming to your door. If you want to un-Jailbreak your device, just simply restore it.

If you're just about to jet off somewhere on American Airlines, you might be interested to hear that the company has released its first iPhone/iPod touch/iPad app today. The free app offers customers a new way to stay connected with the airline while they're travelling, with an intelligent data display that enables American to provide the most relevant day-of-travel information, meaning that the app knows and displays who you are and where you're going (although you probably don't need an app to tell you who you are!), and perhaps more usefully, where you're departing from, including what gate, and where you'll be sitting on the plane, as well as your position on the standby list, if that applies to you.

The app has been designed so that you only need to...
