Capcom has today announced that C.Viper will be the next fighter to be added to Street Fighter IV's 10-fighter roster on iPhone. She'll be available as a free update later in the year, in the same way that Cammy and Zangief were added back at the end of June. This is great news indeed for Street Fighter fans, proving that just as Capcom promised, it will be providing ongoing free support for the iPhone version of the game. Capcom has also issued some brand new screenshots featuring C.Viper in action.
Street Fighter IV offers players the most advanced fighting experience on the iPhone and iPod touch, with robust move sets including Unique Attacks, Special Moves, Focus Attacks, Super Combos and Ultra Combos. Players can also battle head-to-head in "Versus" mode via Bluetooth, and newcomers can learn the ropes in the "Dojo" training mode.
Street Fighter IV is available for download from the Apple iTunes App Store for $9.99/£5.99.

One of the biggest things the iDevice has been missing is the support of Adobe Flash. Well, you all know Comex from the iPhone Dev Team, responsible for the Jailbreakme.com Jailbreak. Him and his collegues ported over Flash from the Android platform to Cydia. Now before you get all crazy and start pushing over llamas, know that this is free and in the alpha stage of things. It works to a limit but will be fun when it is perfected. The instructions to how to get this are in the video and below:
1. Open Cydia
2. Manage Sources, tap "edit", then "+" or "add"
3. This will allow you to add a source.
4. Type this when adding the source: http://repo.benm.at
5. Tap "done" it will refresh.
6. In Cydia, search for Frash and install.
7. You are now free to try try out Flash on your device.
This works for iPhone 4, 3GS, and iPad. More info when updates come in.

AT&T has today launched its AT&T U-verse Mobile App, which gives U-verse subscribers the ability to download and watch TV content on their iPhones, making AT&T the first provider to offer an integrated mobile app that enables you to both manage your DVR and download and watch select shows. U-verse Mobile replaces the Mobile Remote Access for iPhone app, and incorporates the ability to browse the U-verse TV program guide, view program descriptions, and schedule and manage DVR recordings. It also adds the ability to download available episodes over any Wi-Fi connection, and then watch them in full-screen mode on your iPhone.
All U-verse TV customers can now download the app to manage their DVR, and the ability to download and watch content is available for customers that subscribe to the U300 package or higher. The U-verse Mobile App, which is available for free from the Apple iTunes App Store, includes TV shows from several popular networks. AT&T says that it will continue to add more content on a regular basis.
"We're making it possible for you to watch TV shows on your iPhone at no extra charge. It's just one more valuable and innovative feature available on U-verse TV. Our U-verse multi-screen promise is now a reality for millions of U-verse TV customers, with content available on U-verse TV, U-verse Online, and today, U-verse Mobile. No cable provider comes close to matching the cross-platform experience we're delivering today, and we'll continue to add unique features that further integrate these screens."

Another day, another zombie game gets sent to the App Store for approval, but we all still love our zombie games, that's why they keep on coming, pouring out of the App Store in their droves, and why it's still fun to write about them, of course! Today's zombie game, Zombie Flick, is going for the stylishly retro feel, being set in 1970s America, after an incurable zombie virus has swept the nation. With no food or guns to hand, it's down to you as the lone survivor to take on the undead hordes single-handed.
Using nothing but everyday objects, you must flick, dismember and decapitate the zombies before they get a chance to chow down on your brains. The game features both a Survival and Last Stand mode, three environments, and lots of household objects that can be used as weapons, such as Frisbees, LPs, Lava Lamps and Ukuleles. Along the way you'll get to dispatch lots of different zombie types in gloriously gory style, with dismemberment, decapitation and buckets of blood in in lovely 3D.
No firm release date as yet, but developer Full Fat has just submitted the game to the App Store, so expect to see it available for purchase very soon.

Barry Steakfries, aside from being one of the best named gaming heroes ever apart from Duke Nukem, is the crazy creation of Australian developers Halfbrick, probably best known currently for the massively successful Fruit Ninja iPhone game. Gun-toting, foul-mouthed Bazza S actually made his gaming debut in Halfbrick's fantastic PSP minis game, Age of Zombies, and now he's making the running jump onto the iPhone with Monster Dash.
In Monster Dash, Barry Steakfries is a veritable running man, travelling through portals to visit exotic world locations, battling demons, mummies, vampires and much more. Barry's movement is controlled by just two buttons - jump and shoot. The action speeds up and changes gear with every new world, but fortunately Barry has lots of weapon and health pickups to keep him going. Weapons include the one-shot Pacifier, Mr. Zappy, and the Machine Gun Jetpack.
The object of the game is to run as far as possible and shoot monsters along the way to rack up huge scores and collect awards, so that you can then show off your prowess to the world via the Openfeint leaderboard. You can bet that Barry Steakfries will be chomping at the bit to make his first iPhone appearance, but so far there's no release date for Monster Dash, so you'll have to be content with checking out the silly trailer for now! Looks like it's destined to be another winner for the geniuses at Halfbrick.
Ever notice how not all of your Apps have multitasking/backgrounding enabled? Ever wanted to quit out of an App and be right back in the place you started after your quit out? When with Backgrounder you can. Backgrounder allows you to run any app in the background so you can get back to it after answering a text message. You need to have a Jailbroken iDevice to download this and it is free as well.
Five-Column Springboard is a Jailbreak App that will allow you to have 5 App icons in a row on your Homescreen. Normally, you are allowed 4 icons in a row by Apple, but this changes everything. This App can clean up your Springboard by adding space for more Apps. Five-Column Springboard is free in Cydia.

Yippee, free things! Fox Digital Entertainment has today launched a free LITE version of Predators, the new iPhone, iPod touch and iPad game based on Robert Rodriguez's new Predators movie. Predators LITE lets you sample various weapons and killing techniques in a specially created super mission from the officially licensed action game. Now's your chance to get stuck in and tear the nasty humans into tiny bits using some of the Predators' most terrifyingly ruthless moves, and all for free! What better way to spend your time is there? I can't think of any. And if you get really, really good, then maybe you'll manage to pull off (no pun intended) some super sweet Trophy Kill decapitations. If you're lucky enough to have an iPhone 4 or iPad, everything will look even more gloriously gory, of course.
Predators LITE is available now for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad for absolutely no money whatsoever.

British Indie developers Big Pixel Studios' dual-stick shooter Meow Meow Happy Fight is out today. Set in modern-day Tokyo, the game features a giant Happy Cat that has travelled back in time from the year 2336 AD, where everyone is too happy, to start causing a ruckus here. It's a fun little shooter with lots of cool touches, like the fact that the level select is a real map of Tokyo that you get to move around. The controls are really easy to pick up: you move the virtual stick on the left to guide your character, and press the virtual button on the right to shoot. Try and rack up as many kills as possible to get Happy Points and unlock new levels and characters. Although it's really just a very simple, repetitive shooter as far as the gameplay is concerned, it's got a lot of style and humour, and it's also fairly challenging once it gets going.
To celebrate the game's release, it's on sale for a limited time for just $0.99/£0.59 (usual price $2.99/£1.79), and as a bonus, Big Pixel Studios will also be dropping the price of some of their other games such as Piyo Blocks 2. Even better, they're giving the first Piyo Blocks game away for free, just for today!

Before I put this thing on, I thought I was going to take it off after the review, I was wrong. This vinyl is a great idea, not only does it protect the side and back of your phone, it is also glow in the dark! Would work great as a type of night light if you don't have a lamp close or if you lost your phone. The vinyl solves the "death grip" problem by covering up the border of the iPhone 4. iGlowPhone is available for around $10 by clicking the link below.
Want to spice up your iPhone experience? Well you can check out video wallpapers which will allow you to have exactly that, video wallpapers. You can have motion backgrounds instead of boring single frame images. You will need two things from this procedure; Winterboard and a video wallpaper from the "Themes (Videos)" category. After downloading that and a few wallpapers, you can open up Winterboard and select a background. Impress your friends with this cool Jailbreak feature!
