Junk Jack X Update Will Fix, Add, and Enhance Multiple Features, and Help You Hold on to Your Precious Items

Posted by on November 21st, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Junk Jack X is getting a big update. So big that I don’t know where to begin! Ok, so I do know where to begin, it just took a while. The point is, the next time you play the game it could feel a bit different with all the little tweaks and additions.

Once the update (which Pixbits submitted to Apple very recently) is live you’ll be able to see the last tile where you died, helping you find whatever items you may have dropped. There will also be a new cooldown feature of 60 seconds that will prevent you from losing any items when dying immediately after entering a world. A save reminder feature is also coming so that you’ll never forget to save your game, and also a new customize feature that will let you rename and edit the gender, skin, and hair style of your character.

We’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of the new Sony QX line of lens-style cameras: those super high quality lens systems that attach to the back of an iPhone and communicate with the phone via a Sony app. We had a few minutes to go hands-on with the QX-100 high-end lens yesterday, and here’s what we saw. More on the QX cameras.

While not in the perfect setting, we did a few side-by-side tests with the QX-100 ($499) lens against the stock camera in the iPhone 5S. Here are the sample shots and a few notes for each. These images are not modified other than whatever the individual cameras do by default and for size/cropping for use here.

out

(click for larger size)

This first shot is a bit of a torture shot for any camera. Bright colors, bright sun, dark shadows, natural and artificial light all in one. In this one both cameras do a good job, but the nod goes to the Sony QX-100 for better representation of the colors in both the light and dark areas. Also a better job of keeping the highlights from blowing out and the darks from disappearing.

closeup

(click for larger size)

In this shot, both cameras do a great job. While the Sony has a richer color saturation – perhaps too saturated – both are quite good. One plus for the Sony: notice that the background is blurred nicely vs the flatter image from the iPhone.

In all, the real let down was the software. And the good thing about that is that it can be updated. Hopefully it will be. Image size is also an issue. The iPhone 5s takes images natively at 8MP while the Sony QX-100 was only sending 1.5MP images to the camera. It is capable, with an micro-SD card installed, to take up to 20MP images, but I was unable to test that.

The price is another thing to think of. The QX-100 is $500. While saving a couple hundred over the same featured RX-100 camera, it might be worth the extra just to be able to use the camera by itself. Without further testing I can’t really be sure if the camera is worth the $500 over the camera built into the iPhone. We hope to have a full review for you later this year as the lenses become more readily available.
