Soccer Rally 2 from IceFlame Games officially releases on Thursday, bringing perhaps the most realistic car soccer action to the App Store since the original released. David Deacon of IceFlame Games will join us on our Twitch channel to talk about the game, how they tried to improve it over the original, and perhaps playing their game in real life with actual cars and giant soccer balls.

On our latest Twitch stream, we’ll be playing a pair of minimalist arcade games, one that just got a big content update in Pivvot, and another that was inspired by it in 15 Coins. Whitaker Trebella, creator of Pivvot, will discuss the new modes added to the game and the challenges of designing them. As well, Engaging Games’ Blake Johnson will discuss his studio’s own 15 Coins, and how games like Pivvot helped inspire it.

Recently release app, Moshcam, allows users to enjoy and purchase live concerts. Moshcam gives users access to over 1,200 hours of live music from all kinds of bands like Blondie, Jane’s Addiction, and the Decemberists.
The app includes full-length, HD concerts. Imagine streaming one of these concerts from an iPhone or iPad to an Apple TV. Moshcam was founded in 2007 and has been recording live performances at venues in Sydney since then, and recently in London, New York, and Los Angeles.
The concerts are streamed to the app instead of stored on the iOS device they’re purchased on. It’s probably a good idea to use Wi-Fi when watching these HD concerts to keep from going over on data plans.
Downloading Moshcam gives users five performances of their choice for free. After the five free concerts, more performances can be unlocked for $1.99 a piece. After a concert is unlocked, users are free to play it as many times as they want.
Now that the NBA season is in full swing, the NBA has released NBA Game Time 2011-2012, an app that gives users access to tons of NBA features anytime and anywhere an internet connection is available. Many of the basic features are free, like game alerts from your favorite teams, stats, scores, play by play reports, news, and video highlights. There are also two subscription level available for users who want to access more of the app’s premium content. The NBA Game Time Plus subscription give users access to video highlights from in-progress games, full game video recaps, an advertisement free experience, and live radio feeds (both home and away broadcasts) of games. An NBA Game Time Plus subscription costs $7.99.
For $39.99, users can subscribe to the NBA League Pass which includes all of the features above as well as live streaming of all NBA regular season games, a full archive of all the season’s games, and live in-game stat overlays. Some users may already have an NBA League Pass subscription through their cable or satellite provider and are able to use their account information to log in via the app and gain access to all League Pass content.
Currently, NBA Game Time 2011-2012 is compatible with all iOS devices running version 4.0 or higher, but it isn’t optimized for the iPad.
We started talking about iPhone OS months ago. We’ve already covered what we’d like to see in iPhone OS 4. Today at 10am we get to see what Apple will be delivering to us in the coming months.
Join us back here at 10am Pacific for the announcements. We’ll be grabbing the best bits from all over the web and posting them here along with discussion of what we find out.
Remember, iPhone OS 4 won’t be released tomorrow, at least not to consumers. But we will get an idea of what we have to look forward to when it is released, probably in June or July of this year.
Update: Instead of a live discussion, we are going to provide highlights and a wrap-up of the announcement after the event has finished. If you’d like to keep track of the live events, gdgt generally has really good live coverage.
Ustream has wanted to stream from the iPhone for a long while now. They started out with a jailbroken iPhone version. But that didn’t reach that many people. They also released a viewing application for the iPhone. A good start. Next came the iPhone 3GS app that allowed you to record videos with your iPhone 3GS then upload them to Ustream. Getting closer.
Then, last week, Apple decided to let streaming video application loose on the App Store. And now we have the Ustream Live Broadcaster.
The app allows you to stream video to the Ustream site and to the Ustream viewing application at a 320×240 resolution. Here’s the cool part — it works on Wifi or 3G on both the iPhone 3G and 3GS. You can also record the videos locally and upload them later if you choose.
And as you would expect these days there are options to share the videos on Facebook and Twitter. And you can also include your location information with the videos.
I imagine we will see the sending and the viewing applications combined at some point in the future. But for now, you need both.
Overall a pretty good experience for sharing video to multiple people. Have you tried the Ustream broadcaster? How was it?
