Popular iPhone match-four puzzler Booooly gets a big update today, the main thrust of which is the addition of the ability to integrate Facebook and Twitter contacts into the game to add a whole new dimension to Booooly's popular Multiplayer arena. Scores and achievements are posted in real-time to the SNS platform of your choice, so that you can keep track of your friends' scores, while the "Who added me" facility lets you know when you get new Booooly friends. You can also now use your Twitter or Facebook profile pictures in the game. Finally, update 1.7 is giving fans what they've been asking for by providing daily free gold balls when players comment on Twitter or Facebook, but only when their supply has dropped below 50.
For this tweak you are going to need a Jailbroken device. What this does, is it allows you to snap photos with your native Camera App by pressing the Volume Up button instead of the on screen tap. This makes it much easier to take photos in every way, especially on older devices where you can't see the tap. FastSnap is available in Rock for $.99 with a 9 day free trial.
Grab it while it's hot! MiTube is out on the App Store, not Cydia, allowing you to download and stream YouTube videos to your iDevice. So lets say that you want to show a friend a video later but don't want it to load or don't have service, you can download it and have it on your phone! The App is free and easy to use, so grab it before it gets taken down!
One feature lacking on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (aside from SlingBox) is streaming live TV. However, that is about to change for Dish Network customers. Soon, Dish Network subscribers will soon be able to watch live TV on their mobile devices, at no extra cost. A service... for free?! Now, you will need extra hardware for this setup to work, and Dish Network will provide two options. One is to purchase a SlingBox, which retails for $180 to $300. The second option would be to cough up "$200 to $400 to upgrade to Dish's HD DVR with SlingBox features." In addition to that flat fee, the multiple DVR service will cost $10 a month, but at least you'll get recording capabilities with it. So streaming TV onto your mobile device will be free, kinda....
Wireless on MSNBC.com reportstoday on a survey from ChangeWave Research which finds that despite the recent antenna troubles, the iPhone 4 is "outperforming almost every other smart phone in the industry in terms of overall customer satisfaction and meeting owners' expectations." ChangeWave also said that iPhone 4 owners are reporting less dropped calls than iPhone 3GS owners. And as for that thorny antenna issue, well it seems that although the survey found that 20 percent of the total 213 iPhone 4 owners polled said that they had experienced problems, the vast majority of them said that they were happy with Apple's solution of providing the $29 bumpers for free.
In terms of overall satisfaction, 72 percent of respondents said they are "very satisfied",...
So here is the second thing everyone has been waiting for, the iPhone 4 unlock. If you have been waiting to leave AT&T to go the T-Mobile, or use your iPhone 4 in another country on another GSM carrier, here you have it. It is a really simple process where you need a Jailbroken iPhone 4(check the link below on how to do it), then you just go into Cydia and search "ultrasn0w". To be safe, make sure everything in Cydia is updated. After the download, you should be unlocked and free from AT&T.
This is an App that allows you to have your phone settings pop out with just a simple swipe. First off, you download SBSettings in Cydia or Rock. After it is installed you just swipe your status bar, it will pop out. You can turn your WiFi off really quickly along with other settings. SBSettings is free for everyone.
This is a tutorial on how to download the "cleaner" version of Cydia... from Cydia. It is good to have both and super simple to acquire Rock. Rock is free and it allows you to go through your Cydia sources, in a more stable environment. All you have to do is go into Cydia, search "Rock Extensions", and download.
NaturalMotion has released a brand new free limited edition of its football game Backbreaker Lite, sponsored by KFC. For one month only, players will have access to 10 specially selected waves, plus a range of community tools which were previously only available in the paid-for version of Backbreaker Football, including Facebook integration, an email bragging system and dedicated leaderboards. A special KFC-themed touchdown celebration, animated by the team at NaturalMotion Games, has also been added to the game, whereby successful waves will result in the player breaking out into a signature chicken dance and strutting around the end zone triumphantly! Here's Torsten Reil, CEO of NaturalMotion, talking about the new sponsored update:
The Magic Labyrinth is a board game that was voted the Children's Game of the Year in 2009 in Germany, and went on to be a big hit on the DS, and is now coming to the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch this August (date still TBA) at an introductory price of £1.79/$2.99/2.39. In the game, the player collects magic symbols by moving little wizard's apprentices. However, their progress around the field of play is hampered by invisible walls, whose location the player must commit to memory so that they can avoid them.
The iPhone/iPad version of the game has two game modes with several difficulty levels, which can be further varied using barriers. In "Look Out!" mode, players must collect as many magic symbols as possible, without bumping into the invisible walls...
