Good Blood! - Innerspace Meets the Magic School Bus

Posted by Rob Rich on October 20th, 2011
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Most people are content to go through with their day-to-day activities without really considering how their bodies do what they do. It's a complicated set of systems that keep us moving, and one that lends itself well to Edutainment. Which is probably why Helen Sell and frukti Games made Good Blood!

Players will embark on a first-person journey through the blood stream, learning about the circulatory system along the way. Of course, it's not just about learning the ins-and-outs of blood cells and bacteria. There's also gaming to be had, with viruses that need exterminating and wounds that need plugging. With white and red blood cells, naturally.

Curious about blood and they way it does what it does? Looking for a corridor styled "shooter" with a lot of blood (*rimshot*)? Then take a look at Good Blood!. Or at least check out the trailer below. This amalgamation of learning and video gaming is available in the App Store right now for $1.

App from Lynda.com for On The Go Video Learning

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Lynda.com has been around for a long while now. Their video training series have been helpful to me in the past when I've needed to quickly learn a whole new platform, a new app, or just want to find out the right way to do something, not the way I do it.

Well now, Lynda.com have released a new iPhone app that gives you access to all of their video training from the app itself. You can now pick up where you left off on your training if you are on Wifi, 3G, or even Edge. The app features multiple streaming qualities that adapts to your connection speed.

Full access to all 700+ video courses requires a subscription starting at $25/month. If you haven't ever tried any of the video learning featured from Lynda.com, the app lets you sample thousands of their training videos for free so you can get a taste of their gentle but informed teaching style. Here's a quick video introduction to the app.

360iDev Developer Conference Returns to San Jose, CA in April

Posted by Jeff Scott on February 26th, 2010

360iDev, if you are unfamiliar, is a fantastic, informative, and very cheap iPhone (and iPad) developer conference. They year they have 40 sessions divided into four different tracks (Business of iPhone, Sights, Sounds and Interactions, Development Tips, Hands-on), all presented by the people that have actually done what they are presenting about. The conference, while extremely well organized, has a very grass roots feel to it. Much more community-like than the now humongous WWDC. Not to mention it's a fraction of the price.

Some of the features of the conference this year:

  • 40 sessions, 3 panels, 5 hands-on training sessions all included
  • Touch Arcade Game Jam - hack session where games are created overnight
  • All meals included and there will be meet and greets every night
  • Aurora Feint hosting a session and a game bar showcasing great OpenFeint games

Take a look at the full schedule for session details. Looks to be an interesting line up. If you are involved or even interested in iPhone development and are based in the Bay Area, this conference is not to be missed. I was lucky enough to attend the first 360iDev and I really can't stress enough how great of an event this will be for the beginning and experienced iPhone developer.
