Apple creaes controller patent for iPhone devices

ipad-patent.200

One of the biggest knocks at the iPhone as a gaming device is the lack of some sort of control buttons. With no gaming buttons, it can be difficult to control a game, as there is no feel to the iPhone’s current controller: the touch screen. This is especially prevalent in the Zenonia games. To correct this problem, Apple has filed a patent to put controls on the iPhone and possibly future iPad versions.

The new controlling patent, as shown on Patently Apple, shows a shell case like the Powermat which wraps around a portable touch screen device to create a more traditional portable gaming device.

Review: Zenonia 2 RPG on the iPhone

zenonia2-001

Zenonia fans have been waiting a long time for the release of the sequel. The original Zenonia game from GameVil was dubbed the alpha and omega of RPGs for the iPhone. It offered an action based throwback to the days of the SNES and a link to the past. This week, Zenonia 2 has been released and is taking the app store by storm. The question is: Can the game live up to the hype?

For starters, Zenonia 2 uses the formula of the original game. The same action based gameplay, zany characters and an old school feel. This time however, several improvements have been made to the structure of the game. The greatest weakness in the original game has been addressed. What was once a strictly D-pad controlled game with just a few touch options, has been vastly enhanced with even more touch options and menus putting the iPhones capacitive display to real use. It needs a little getting used to, but I believe the touch changes are for the better.

AT&T addressing iPhone connectivity issues: Not so fast Verizon Wireless

att-verizon

Ever since the original Apple iPhone launched way back in 2007, thousands of customers have complained about how poor the network performance was with the iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity over Americans gave them little choice but to put up with it or get another phone.

Could the shackles be broken? If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.

Verizon iPhone 4G speculation mounts, expected this June

asdf

Its that time of year again when the new iPhone is just around the corner. Just before the summer of every year, the Messiah Jobs comes down from his mountain to bestow upon the land his latest gift to mankind. The groundswell of anticipation from the people below reaches deafening heights as June approaches.

With all the anxious anticipation comes the plethora of educated predictions and “reliable sources” that foretell of the miracles that the latest and greatest will contain. The list seems ever-long, yet consistent. Rumors of a forward facing camera, HD video, higher resolution display, and multi-tasking are always at the top, accompanied with some believable-yet-bogus photoshopped image.

eBay today announced the release of two new free apps for the Apple iPhone. The first app is a seller tool, it will allow members to easily snap a photo of a product on their iPhone camera, enter some basic auction information, and list it on the eBay marketplace. Their second app is a bit of a stab at Craigslist, as it’s the new eBay Classifieds application. This one lets you post free ads on the eBayClassifieds.com website for local buyers.

And don’t forget, with the recent release of the PayPal mobile app, you can quickly pay for your items from either eBay site.

iPhones get large trade-in value at Radio Shack

radioshack.200

One of the biggest drawbacks to the iPhone – as any good smartphone these days – is having to shell out some serious coin to get one: and you’re not even done there, next you have to sign a contract just to use it. If you want an unlocked version you sometimes have to resort to shady means to finding a modified device, then pay an arm and a leg more without any sort of restitution. Starting today however, iPhones are available at Radio Shack for an insignificantly reduced price.

The real reason for this price drop, which probably negates any profit Radio Shack could have made on the iPhone, is to attract attention to their trade in program. Basically they want your used phones, but your iPhone more specifically.

Play out your fantasies with Zenonia 2: The Lost Memories for iPhone

zenonia-2.200

The gaming market on the iPhone and iPod touch started out with some casual puzzle titles and others that were meant to hold your attention for a couple minutes at a time, say in a doctor’s office or other waiting room. Soon after, however, we were introduced to fuller games that were comparable to their console counterparts. But what about the RPG genre?

There isn’t much to be found in terms of role-playing games on the platform, but it looks like a pretty good option is coming up in Zenonia 2: The Lost Memories for the iPhone and iPod touch. The successor to the first Zenonia will be submitted for App Store approval this week, so it should be showing up soon.

Opera Mini for iPhone is a huge improvement over Safari

Opera Mini on iPhone loads pages 90% faster than Safari

No you’re not dreaming, Opera Mini for iPhone was officially submitted to the Apple iPhone App store today.

If the new app can survive Apple’s cryptic and gauntlet like review process, it will be a big win for the millions of iPhone owners who have been left less than satisfied with their current browsing experience found in Safari.

The Norwegian company claims its mobile browser is “fast like a rocket” and host to a long list of features that are sure entice you: browser tabs, page caching, text search, and history are at the top but the real secret to its reign over Safari is its compression engine.

TomTom iPhone app gets Google local search, real-time traffic

tomtom.200

I’m not much of one to use standalone GPS navigation devices, I can’t even recall the last time I needed one as I prefer to use the free Google Maps application on my Nokia smartphone. But that’s not to say traditional GPS makers aren’t gonna go down without a fight. TomTom, still one of the world’s leading providers of navigation solutions and digital maps, is shifting their focus to the world of smartphones. More specifically, enhancementsfor the iPhone TomTom app.

TomTom’s press announcement explains how full real-time traffic information will be available from the TomTom iPhone app (version 1.3), getting you around those nasty traffic jams rather than taking what is suggested as the fastest route.

Google’s Android Marketplace to unleash a wrath on Apple’s iPhone

g

A leaked legal document distributed by the digital freedom crusaders EFF, discovered the legal red tape Apple binds its iPhone developers by. Truly draconian in nature the contractual documentation that Apple uses with developers for its systems allows it to reject any application developed even if the application meets the iPhone’s requirements.

Absolutely no reverse engineering for the iPhone’s operating system, nor any reverse engineering for the iPhone software development kit is permitted.
