It’s what makes time travel possible, and now you can use it on your iPhone, iPod, or your iPad! iFlux Capacitor is a detailed virtual replica of the famous flux capacitor invented by Dr. Emmett Brown in 1985, with finely crafted animation, functioning time circuits, and a working speedometer. We’ve also added a few enhancements of our own, such as a push-button plutonium reload system and user defined speed threshold for avoiding unnecessary speeding tickets. It’s also now possible to cross the space-time continuum on a bike, or even on foot! (just watch the melting soles on re-entry). Okay, so it doesn’t REALLY allow you to travel through time (or does it?), but with a little bit of imagination and 1.21 gigawatts of electricity, anything is possible.
Don’t think: buy. Buy now.
Writer for iPad by iA
The key to good writing is not that magical glass of Bordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovy background music. The key is focus. What you need to write well is a spartan setting that allows you to fully concentrate on your text and nothing but your text. Many professional writers use SimpleText or Textedit because these are the only writing programs that are totally distraction free. But text editors are not perfect. That’s why we made Writer.
Minimalist, gorgeous and superbly executed. Writer should be an auto-download for anyone with an iPad. The folks at iA are true artisans.
I can’t help but compare Writer to WriteRoom, the other notable “no-distractions writing” app: Writer beats it quite handily.
I’ve been looking for something to tide me over until FFT gets released on the iPhone in September and this is definitely it. The story, characters and gameplay are extremely compelling and due to the fairly compartmentalized battles, it’s a game you can pick up and play for minutes or hours on end. As many of the reviews mention, the only downside is that some of the translations are pretty terrible — but as someone who watches fansubbed anime all the time, I didn’t really have a problem with it.
The iPad Really is Magical
A fun little video that’s entertaining, even if mostly obvious. At least it adds some mock-credence to the “magical” claim from Jobs and Apple PR.
How Apple Should Display iPhone Apps on the iPad by mjdave
While I don’t at-once agree with the implementation (adding a thick black border to apps without iPad versions), I completely agree with the notion that there needs to be a visual indicator to help distinguish the different app types. I find the pixel-doubled apps trying to use on the iPad and would rather stick with the iPhone versions.
This issue might become moot when iPhone OS 4.0 is released, as I intend to stick the iPhone apps into their own folders on a separate page.
