In the interest of full disclosure, I received a promo code for the iPhone App, A Surfers Paradise, with the expectation that I comment on it.
A Surfers Paradise ($1.99) is the brain child of Matt Gye and Simon ‘Shagga’ Saffigna. Together, they have won several International Surf film awards. Their vision is to produce a groundbreaking international surfing documentary, delivered in 13, 30 minute installments. The hope is, to excite the imagination of 20 million regular participants through a solid media convergence framework that will ultimately find a home in prime time television world wide. The iPhone app is all part of the media convergence, though honestly, its nothing more than a 2 dollar promotional tool.
Today’s freebee over at freeappaday.com is Reign of Swords ($2.99). In 2008 it won many big name awards from many sites. IGN clearly drank the Kool-Aid on this game in looking at the testimonials. In fact sifting through all the testimonials trying to identify why I want to go get it, I discovered it’s basically a war strategy game. The success of the first game spawned a sequel, it has been aptly named Episode II. (more…)

Since I got my Google Voice (GV) number I have been trying to figure out a way to utilize one of the best features of it with my iPhone, free text messages. Though as my mama always said, life is like a box of…wait wrong mama…there is no free lunch. Every SMS message that I forward from GV, either sent or received, I get charged by those rat bastards AT&T . I know there are applications such as TextPlus, Jelly SMS or AIM, but with those applications the other person must have the same app in order for the text to be sent and/or received, plus I have to recondition people to send me a text via whatever app that I am using or some other hokey method that most people wont care to use. Lest we forget, I am cool because Google Voice is by invite only, and I got one! I mean really who wants to download an app right away in an app store when I can get put on a waiting list for week. Also, how is Google to rule the world, if no one is willing to get their invite and NOT use the product I just waited a week to get and still dont know what to do with, but I digress. (more…)
Google anounced via their blog early this morning that users can now send and receive SMS messages to via email. For example, you are sending a text message via your Google number to a friend. (more…)

Just an update to the great little app I just reviewed, AlgebraPrep:Factoring. I had mentioned a hope that they would offer more of these applications. As of September 1 they added 4 more. Feel free to check them out. They added
A picture is worth a thousand words so not going to say much review wise other then 99 cents to throw some virtual smackdown on your friends, ex’s, co-workers is definitely worth it 🙂
Algebra Prep $2.99
Update: I did a review if you would like to see it go here.
Currently the Pearson Algebra Prep app is on the front page of the App Store. Some of you may find this exciting or not. The app costs $2.99. I am toying with doing a review on this, it is just a bit expensive as I don’t need the app myself and my children are a loooog ways off from needing it. I took a screen shot incase you still want proof later on. (more…)
With iTunes 9 rumored to have app management and a link to a jail broken app that lets you do just this I thought I would try and find out just how many apps people have. Take poll on the side bar. (more…)
