If you are looking for a new, free iPhone game, check out Mafia Wars by Zynga. It is also available on other platforms (i.e. Facebook, My Yahoo!, and MySpace) but I have only played it on the iPhone with some persuasion. It seems to have a pretty big following and a compilation of strategy guides written for it.
Anyways, check it out. You can download it from the App Store here.
It was cool to find out that Apple released an update to iPhone 2.2 today. After going through the process, I couldn’t wait to try out the new features—specially the ones involving Google Maps. They were: Street View, and public transit & walking directions.
Things were fine when all of a sudden… a “things that make you go, hmmm” moment. Check out the walking direction that I was given 2‑blocks away from the Transbay Terminal.
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.
Dutch artist’ Parra adds some colors to the infamous Incase iPhone 3G Slider Case. Why “infamous”? Because I wrote about a while back in August before getting one for myself. All I can say is that it has served me well, and has lived up to the hype that it brought ever since coming out for the first-generation iPhones.
But alas, though Parra’s design is dope, I just don’t know if it suits my iPhone personally. But that’s just me. Anyways, if you would like to get your hands on it, stay tuned to Arkitip who will be curating the piece on October 24, 2008.
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
