OMG…. Draw Something

In the recent few weeks, I have seen quite a number of individuals who are eating dinner at nice and fancy restaurant – but most of the time their fingers and attention is to their iPhone, and sometimes the iPad. Well, I’ll be lying of I say did not do the same thing. I was in restaurant in Raffles earlier this week, and could not resist the fact that there’s so much interest in this new craze called ….. Draw Something.

It’s amazing. From what I read, the game was launch approximately six weeks ago, and has garner almost 30M players and has “processed” almost 1 billion drawings. Impressive! In addition to that, read a news report few days back, Zynga is buying over OMGPOP for $200M due to the success of Zynga. Damn..

Sometimes, it makes me thing – what does it take to get that IDEA, that one IDEA that can bring you the big bucks. It’s just so simple. I bet you, in the next few months we will see a whole bunch of copy cats that will come and launch games that’s similar to Draw Something. In fact, I foresee soon we will get a lot more of childhood games popping out on iPhone and iPad. Possibly, I can start thinking on how to make konda-kondi or galah panjang an iPad game. Or perhaps bola copping. Then again, I am not so much of an IOS developer, tried hard to learn but lacking the great ideas that’ll help me to build focus. Well now, damn lazy anyway. So much work at hand anyway.

He he…

Yahoo Messenger Coming to iPhone (With 3G Video Calls)

videochatFew months ago, Apple launched iPhone 4 together with a striking new feature called Facetime. Facetime is a WIFI-based feature that will vdeo allow calls to be made between two iPhones (and later iPod touch). In order to support these feature, the new iPhone 4 and iPod Touch now comes with a front camera

Facetime quality is definitely excellent, but the problem is – its not as mobile as what people want it to be. It only supports wifi. In addition to that, Facetime can only work with another Facetime client. Until there are more clients for Facetime, I think this feature will just be a hype.

Riding on the wave of mobile video calls – are Yahoo Messenger. They have announced that the new version of iPhone-based Yahoo Messenger (and Android too) will come with 3G video call feature. This new feature will allow the user to interact with anybody who is using

apple_factime

Yahoo Messenger. Hence you get an agnostic solution to a simple problem Open-mouthed smile

I would definitely be looking forward for this new functionality, as I think video call is the way of the future, and inter-operatability is direction moving forward. In fact, if we look at video conference providers, all of them focus on the same standard which is H.323 to enable different software and hardware to talk to each other. Find the app at https://app.sinpin.com/, which will keep you connected to your loved ones around the world!

I am so looking forward for this functionality. I do hope Yahoo will come out with a quality app for the iPhone. Hey man, not just it can do video call across different platforms, but it can also work on 3G!

Woo hoo..!

Android is actually quite good

I must say after trying out the android phone, I can safely say that there has been a lot of thoughts put into it. The interface is very nice, not a good as iPhone. But its very much better than the windows mobile phones.

Deep integration with Google’s own products such as Google search, Google maps and Google talk does provide a significant advantage against its competitors.

In fact, their integration to social media platforms also makes it a very yummy phone.

All in all, the most important bit is the interface is snappy and requires hardly any brain power to master.

Twitter for iPhone is Now Live

IMG_0135.jpg

Twitter for iPhone is finally live after a long wait. This particular application replaces the Tweetie 2 for iPhone – which was bought by Twitter last month. Seriously I have not yet try because Twitter keeps on crash like mad on my iPhone.

It keeps dying.. and dying.. and dying. Maybe I would need to do a fresh reboot on my iPhone before being able to do anything with it.

Anyway – what THEY SAY – the new twitter will allow you to:

  • You twitter without an account – cool innit!
  • Sign-up twitter using the application (forget about going to web)
  • More tabs are more reorganized (i never use this anyway)
  • Search results include tweets (i also does not use this)

He he

Let’s wait for the reboot and we shall see

  

UPDATE
Managed to get working! Now shall explore it when i have time.. its time to go to work :p

Finally – Nike+ Heart Rate Monitor

nike_logo

[Rumor]

Linked from the shoemaker forums here – that nike is finally going to release a Heart Rate Monitor that will be compatible with the range of Nike+ products. This is definitely an awesome news – and will open up a whole bunch of potential with regards to fitness management via the iPhone.

I used Nike+ before to track my runnings – but eventually skip it because it does not have integration to any Heart Rate Monitors. Who knows – if the heart rate monitor by Nike is more comfortable than polar – i might just give it a change.

I guess its about time, as other shoemakers like Adidas has already launched their HRM. And if nike does not follow suit – it gonna be a disaster. Hey – Nike+ is super awesome. IPhone or Ipod has very good interface 😀 Now.. lemme think, will it work with IPAD? Coz i actually use ipad during on treadmills. He he..

Using the Iphone

Am putting my blackberry on the back burner today, and started to use my under utilized iPhone.

Not really sure if this is a good idea but it’s all for the fun of it. He he. I wouldn’t really say that the iPhone is significantly better than Blackberry, but the fact of the matter is that, it definitely looks hell a lot better. Functionally, I reckon both are equivalent but iPhone does shows the email a lot nicer than the latter. But, the problem with iPhone is that, since it doesn’t run on a server, in order to forward any emails, the iPhone will need to ensure that it fully downloaded the email before forwarding it. This is really a pain in the ass, as typically when a person sends you a document, and you are supposed to forward it immediately, you will find that it is actually annoying when you have to wait for the download to be completed – especially when you don’t have access to wifi.

On the other hand, if you have access to wifi, the connectivity to the data network is so much easier via iPhone. Blackberry still needs some sort of mobile network, in order to ensure that the carrier make some more money? Muahahah

Anyway, this particular post was started on wordpress for iphone, and the photo above was uploaded using the same client. The quality is “so-so”, especially when compared against the 8900 curve. But doesn’t really matter.. the iphone is a great phone… Tomorrow would be another day of trying out… some.. somewhere.. little …
