Linden Lab, best known for its Second Life virtual world, has created a new physics playground app for the iPad. In the app you can create objects, their interactions, and modify the physical properties of the apps (density, gravity, etc.). It's kind of like imaginary virtual legos you control on your iPad.
The App Store is far from low on filtering apps that adjust users' images in numerous quirky ways. PreggoBooth is one such new addition but it does so with some pretty neat results.
The app enables the user to see how they'd look if they were pregnant and at various stages of pregnancy. Refreshingly for such an app, there aren't any freak results, all are quite appropriate. 3 months, 6 months and full term are possible here and the app doesn't just place a big bump on the person's stomach. Instead, it adjusts everything about the person making for a more realistic look.
PreggoBooth is still meant to be light hearted, however, which is why users can also adjust men to look pregnant with some startling but fun results.
The app might not revolutionize anyone's life but it's a fun break from life and would ideally suit something like a baby shower or even bachelorette party. All images can be shared with all the major social networks.
PreggoBooth is out now, priced at $0.99.
Poking people on Facebook is just sooooo 2010. 2011 is all about jabbing friends! Or at least that's what JabMe's developers think.
JabMe is an app that lets users send jabs to their friends alongside fun sound effects. Using Push Notiications, it's unlimited with a plethora of different sounds and jab actions. Jabs can be anything from a Kung Fu Kick jab to a Burp or a kind hearted Happy Birthday.
There's a game element to it, too, with GameCenter Leaderboards helping users keep track of the highest number of jabs they've inflicted on their friends. A Jab Back action means it's pretty easy to up the jab count and fast.
Once bored of the free supply of jab actions, users can then purchase other packs for $0.99 a pack.
It's certainly quirky but hopefully JabMe will make for a fun messaging service for those who like to be in regular virtual contact with friends.
It's out now.
Halloween is coming! You know what that means, right? Candy! Trick or treating! iOS apps about ghosts and zombies! In Zombies Lick My Screen, it's (understandably) zombies that take center stage.
It's a light hearted app in which users load up a photo and one of four zombies lick away at whatever is displayed. Users can then send a zombie Lick-O-Gram to anyone they want via email, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. From within the app, the user can take a photo, they can import an image or use one of 30 included photos, offering plenty of variety.
Besides the four different zombies, Zombies Lick My Screen also offers three cleaning modes - Lick, Clean and Reveal - to provide different effects.
Two versions of Zombies Lick My Screen are available. Zombies Lick My Screen Lite is free and comes with one zombie and one cleaning mode while the full version priced at $0.99 comes with the full complement of effects and zombies.
Dogs are great. Cuddly, sweet, faithful and never judgemental. How intelligent are they though? Dog fans may now be able to figure out this very important question thanks to a new app by the name of Dog IQ.
According to the app, dogs have different kinds of intelligence just like humans do. These types are: problem solving ability, social intelligence, awareness, sense and the ability to learn and adapt. Dog IQ helps determine how mentally adept the user's dog is by providing a well rounded overview of all of these types.
Each test offered by the app consists of 11 simple and fun questions testing the above abilities. Taken from a pool of 30 questions, there's enough room for trying the test numerous times. Indeed it's encouraged with a history page allowing users to monitor their dog's performance over time.
Dog IQ looks to be a fun entertainment app to finally see if dogs really are smart or not. It's out now priced at $0.99.
Realising that the world is a globe and thus in theory someone on the other side of the world is in the exact same spot as I am now is a very odd thing to get to grips with. Written down it sounds a little like madness so it's no wonder that once upon a time people thought the world was flat. After all, if there's no easy opportunity to travel the world, how could anyone realise that actually the world doesn't stop at a certain point?
That brief, bordering on philosophical piece of rambling aside, Dig2China provides its users with the opportunity to see exactly where they would be if they were able to dig a hole through to the other side of the earth right that second. The phone vibrates as it 'tunnels' its way through the planet in order to surface at the other side.
Once the app pinpoints the new location, fun facts like the current time, weather and official language are shown plus there's a Wikipedia link for further information. Dig2China makes for an ideal yet fun geography app for young and old.
It's out now priced at $0.99.
Aren't iPad docks predictable? Always looking roughly the same and not very exciting to show off to friends and family? So how about this one for a change? It's called the Bentley Mulsanne. Oh yeah, and it's a car.
Yup, one of the world's most luxurious cars, the Bentley Mulsanne, has a new interior that includes two iPads in the back. Built in the UK, the interior in all costs an extra £85,000 on top of the basic price of £205,000 for the car alone. That makes the whole thing around $457,000.
It'll be worth it to someone, though, with the iPad area including full internet access and the possibility to stream TV shows or movies to a large drop down LED screen. Each iPad also comes fully equipped with a bluetooth keyboard dock and the devices fold away into the back of the seat when not in use. It's very cool stuff indeed with even a Mac Mini thrown in and an iPod Touch controlling the audio system for the car.
If you've got a spare half a million lying down the back of the sofa, this could be the ideal media solution with a neat car thrown in. Oh and mind if I come along for the ride? Thank you in advance!
