Backbreaker Football

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Backbreaker Football is one of the most entertaining games in the App Store. It doesn't offer a ton of variety, but it doesn't need to.

Spore: Creatures

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
"Spore: Origins" is unevolved, uninspired, and boring. More of the same, which wasn't a lot to begin with!

Skater Nation

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad

Hooray! More news on the Apple product that nobody really knows exists. The good folks at Flurry Analytics, while doing some of their analyzing, noticed about 50 mystery devices being identified as “iProd” being used on Apple’s Cupertino campus, and ONLY being used on Apple’s Cupertino campus. What’s more is that these devices are also running an unreleased version of iPhone OS, this one coming in the delicious 3.2 variety. You may be hearing this and thinking to yourself, “well it’s just another iPhone.” Flurry knew you would be thinking this, and responds by saying “It (the mystery product) doesn’t follow the same naming string as iPhone devices and is showing up as iProd… We’re triangulating on other data as well that gives us confidence that we are looking at a tablet.” Flurry would love to release this “other data”, save for the privacy of their customers.

Absolutely, almost, sort of a graph for what the Tablet is gonna do. What an iPod touch does.

Absolutely, almost, sort of a graph for what the Tablet is going to do. This is also what an iPod Touch does.

What’s more, after looking at this graph for a while, you will notice that the graph is measuring how many times apps belonging to a certain genre were downloaded and used. It is not measuring the use of the apps overall, but only if they are downloaded and opened. Comparing this list to Apple’s top 50 app list right now (paid and free), the 3 most downloaded genres are games, entertainment, and news. So really, Flurry’s chart is showing us the downloading tendencies of most iPod Touch users.
