Arcade Game: Bloodrunner (Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows, Linux and Mac.)

Cross platform game: Bloodrunner for Android, IOS, Linux & Windows.

I have recently completed a work related MySQL course with a view to completing another certification. Interestingly, whilst on the course the instructor, Freelance Web Developer Gary Rigg, mentioned aside from the usual and varied web and mobile application work he does on a Freelance basis, he has developed a number of games including Ninja vs Aliens, Pabland and my personal favourite (and I get the impression his), Bloodrunner – an Arcade Game for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows, Linux and Mac. Surprisingly, it’s not had that many downloads (within 50 – 100), which when you view and play the game is very surprising. Continue reading

Apple and their carelessness in Foxconn

My water damaged iPhone and the repair….

Water and iPhone don't mixA few weeks ago I commented on Twitter (which i have since left) and Facebook about how I was unfortunate enough to have my iPhone fully submerged in a swimming pool – long story but I was thrown in at a party during drunken antics!. I also read a similiar post of someone else as unfortunate. As a result, I thought the phone was lost. It was saturated after all and refused initially to switch on at all (I know I shouldn’t have attempted that straightaway) but hey you live and learn. Continue reading

Apple’s IOS 4.2 (4.2.1) software update….

Apple’s IOS 4.2 (4.2.1) software update….

It comes as no suprise Apple have finally updated the iPhone software to iOS4.2 as rumoured for their range but what is suprising, is the lack of improvements overall and peoples response to it. It’s been quite negative to say the least and the majority of consumers, from reading blogs and tweets, are feeling short changed and disappointed!. Android on the other hand, appears to be coming on leaps and bounds (even incorporating Flash support early on which I know is an ongoing issue with Apple), so it’s in Apple’s interests you’d think to develop (and keep users happy) at the same speed and maintain an argueable amount of competition for Android in this competitive market.

VoCal – voice reminder app for the Iphone……

It’s no news I like to blog iPhone apps. I use some daily and as I’ve said in previous posts, I like some moreso than others, especially the useful ones and this is one good example!. I’ll use it anyway. It’s been thought up I would say to compete with the Android market. As to my knowledge, thus far, the iPhone doesn’t have some of the voice capability apps that Android does, suprisingly (Google voice for example). They’re coming though. Well, this is a start and a good one too!. Ok, it’s only a simple personal voice reminder app but I think more apps like this are to come and best of all, this one is free. And we like freebies and very little in life is after all. voCal lite is available at iTunes, available to download here.. Continue reading
