When you hear the word “ocarina”, what do you think of? Well, for me, the first thing that came to mind is The Legend of Zelda. Though I haven’t played the 1999 Game of the Year, I still hear that memorable tune/soundtrack playing in my head when I think of Zelda.
Upon hearing that someone made an application for it on the iPhone, I just had to go see it. The application is called Ocarina.
Brightkite recently announced it’s iPhone App coming to the iTunes App Store soon. Here’s the video demo of the application:
I have been using Brightkite along with Twitter for couple of months now since James has invited me to the service. It’s a darn impressive social networking application that uses Yahoo’s Fire Eagle which allows users to manage their location.
The features that are planned for the Brightkite iPhone app are:
Auto geo-location including Place Snapping and Pick a Place
Dopeness. SUMO Paint is a free image editing software that gives you the opportunity to create, edit and comment images online with powerful tools and layer support. I tried it for a quick bit, and I barely noticed any lag using it; then again, I didn’t have so much layers yet.
Being that its a Flash-based application/tool, that’s a whole lot of user-support and market share. That’s remarkable as Designers and non-Designers a like can use it whether they’re away from their workstations or just don’t have Photoshop or applications like it at their disposal. Some of the featured I’m digging are: Shape Trails, Symmetry Tool, and it’s support for Cooliris’ 3D Gallery (formerly PixelLens).
Anyways, go check it out and let your mind free. You may access the application directly via sumopaint.com/app/
