Review: Bejeweled 2 for iPod Touch (and iPhone)

Catagory: Games
Released: Aug 9, 2008
Seller: PopCap Games,Inc (iDP)
Version: 1.0.1
Price: $2.99

I’ve always had a version of Bejeweled installed on most of my mobile devices for the longest time…. My Palm m125,PalmOne Zire 31,Palm Z22 and most recently my iPod Touch. I was recently gifted a iTunes card and I chose to buy afew apps for my iPod Touch… This was one of them :)

This is gonna be short and to the point…. This game is amazing!!!!!. The graphics are a major step up compared to the Palm versions, the sound is way better, controls are far easier.Also as a bonus you can play with your own music in the background instead of game music, also it supports both landscape and portrait mode on all screens (not counting loading screen).

I told ya this would be short review :)

uStream Mobile – Initial Thoughts

uStream just released their iPhone (iPod Touch too) version of their streaming service. Of course its view only but it allows for the user to chat. The interface is simple and easy to use and works as it claims. But beware it is as crashy as hell right now… from viewing stream,logging into chat, chatting it randomly crashed on me. I’m sure they will fix that with a update. Over all this is a decent first gen app of its type.

Edit: Modified title to reflect that its Initial Thoughts not final review.

Mobile Colloquy icon largeThe wait is now over… Mobile Colloquy has now launched for iPhone and iPod Touch running firmware 2.1 or higher.  You may now buy your copy for $1.99 (Support the developers after all they put lots of work into this great app).

Here is a paragraph from my review post i wrote earlier (Read review post with screenshots).

Mobile Colloquy is a pretty solid feature complete IRC client for iPhone OS 2.1 or newer. The interface is simple to use and is easy on the eye. It features : Visual styles just like the desktop version, mIRC colors/formatting support, graphical emoticons provided  you are running iPhone OS 2.2,multi network support,auto ident to nickserv, easy to understand error messages,auto joins,secure SSL connections, room & text encoding, and much more. Based on what it provides id say its fully worth it :) .

Mobile Colloquy 1.0 – First Thoughts

Mobile Colloquy icon largeI was given a Pre-Release review copy of upcoming Mobile Colloquy 1.0 that has been submitted to the app store. Once it gets approved it will go live with a launch price of $1.99.

In my testing I have found that it gives me features id expect in a desktop IRC client and some extra goodies that are cool. Unlike their previous method to get Colloquy on iPhone via web server / Web app this is a native app that works wonderfully. I got it loaded down with all 67 channels ( 48 on Wyldryde, 18 on iPocalypse, and 1 on FreeNode) and I havent noticed any issues yet.
