Jumping onto the iPhone Bandwagon Friday, 06 May 2011
Recently, I acquired the title of "iPhone 4 owner". Ever since, I can't quite imagine what life must have been like without apps and highly polished mobile operating systems. Oh, the dark ages. Yes, pals. I've gone over to the dark light side, finally developing symptoms of smartphone attachment.
I don't have to pack books anymore on trips as iBooks is just a touchscreen away, Tap Tap Revenge is always there to play with while waiting in long queues, and there's always Viber to make (almost) free long distance calls as long as there's a stable wi-fi connection.
So... if I know homosapiens and how we don't get called busybodies for nothing, I know you want to know, what's in my iPhone. Well, apart from the usual staples (Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Facebook, other social networking platforms, etc), here's a peek at some free apps on it:
Tap Tap Revenge 4
The game's not without flaws, far from it. But I love discovering new songs and artistes on Tap Tap Revenge. It's a shame though that you can't play with tracks from your own music library and most popular songs are in-app purchases.
The sort of game that gets old quick but feels oh-so-addictive when you first start playing. Much like time-and-cash-wasting arcade "traps", drop a limited supply of cookies into the play area so that you'll create enough momentum to push the cookies and prizes out over the edge and into your virtual cookie jar. Meanwhile, watch out that your goodies don't fall off the sides.
Touted as "a new reading experience", a byook's much like reading a virtual picture book but with sound and effects. The first title introduced under Byook is Sherlock Holmes' The Adventure of the Speckled Band, accompanied by atmospheric graphics and sound effects that serve to heighten the suspense of this whodunit.
The Moleskine app works much like an interactive notebook
Moleskine. The sort of notebook you pick up just to feel closer to the "artsy" elite. Having said that, it does seem rather cool to own a Moleskine notebook... until the price damage hits and reality beckons.
So, is the app store version a cheap (free) and quick fix? Yes and no. It doesn't perform miracles and your notes don't get up and do the Waltz, but it does let you insert images, sketch and input text into a pseudo-Moleskine setting. Though standing on its own merits as a note-taking app, it's not really something to shout about. Nevertheless, the app's interface is gorgeous to look at, especially if you love anything and everything related to paper - be it virtual or otherwise.
... And so we come to the end of this parting blog post. Good-byes are sad to hear and hard to say, so I'll just leave it at "later days". :)
