Article: Weird + Small Apps 27: Anitello, G-Push Mail, iTrackVacaTime, PlaySafe + TouchPad

Welcome to Weird + Small Apps 27—the first in a while with an app that truly qualifies as weird. This week, we look at the oddball life lessons application Anitello, a separate app that offers Gmail push notifications, a vacation time tracker, a car-friendly, gesture-based control replacement for the iPod music playback feature, and a track pad application for iPhone/iPod touch and Mac users. None of the applications in this week’s…

Article: iPhone Gems: Boggle + Breakspin

As the world prepares for the introduction of new and improved iPod models, major new releases in both the accessory and app worlds have slowed down significantly—thus, this week’s small initial gaming edition of iPhone Gems.

The best app in the collection this week is Swakker Doodle, a collaborative doodling program for iPhone and iPod touch users. Read on for all the details.…

Article: iPhone Gems: Gangstar, Inkvaders, iSink U and Ramp Champ

We’re happy to be able to say this at the start of this week’s gaming edition of iPhone Gems: there’s a lot of good and interesting stuff in here. We begin with a review of Gameloft’s Gangstar—a very substantial clone of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto 3—and continue with shorter reviews of the side-scrolling alien shooter Inkvaders, a 3-D rendition of the classic board game Battleship called iSink U, and a highly…
