TweetStack- “Tweetdeck for iPhone”

Posted by andyl19 on April 10, 2009

A new Twitter client was just realeased by B1TE, Tweetstack. Now you might me saying, why are you even writing this Andy?  Tweetie is the only Twitter app I ever need! Maybe these features will impress you:

* Organise your Twitter stream using customisable Stacks
* Search Stack
* User Stack
* TwitPic gallery Stack
* Location stack
* Favorites stack
* Replies stack
* Direct Messages stack
* TweetDeck import
* Multiple Accounts
* Add, edit, delete and reorder stacks
* Unread message count on stacks and application icon
* Locally saved messages for offline mode
* SMS style send and recieve of messages
* @ twitter id and # hash tag autocompletion
* TwitPic upload
* Load conversation
* Twitter user profile view
* ReTweet shortcut
* Inline @,# and web links
* Streamlined UI

Now that’s only version 1.0. Look at what they have in plan for verion 1.1:

* Search by Miles/KM on Location Stack
* StockTwits Stack
* Add your location to a tweet
* Auto-scroll to earliest unread tweet option
* Option to change font size
* Simple (as opposed to bubble) tweet view
* TweetFollow integration
* Improved Friend Stack screen with search
* Trends

The thing that impresses me though, is the ability to import Tweetdeck groups. To do so, go here->http://www.b1te.com/tweetstack/tweetdeck.html

The developer even provides a video demonstration:

TweetStack Beta 1.0A from Matt Brooke-Smith on Vimeo.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


So this might have a chance of competing with Tweetie if you think about it. For more info go to the developer website-http://www.b1te.com/tweetstack/index.html

Sheep Abduction Review

Posted by iphonetech78 on February 24, 2009


I happen to spot this sheep abduction game on the forum and
decided to try it out. This game is currently on sale now at $2.99.
The price will go up in the first week of march.

The story of this game goes like this: aliens from Planet Zurq 340
is dying because they lack of water. In order to communicate with humans
in a polite manner, they decide to place and move sheep to chew on crops
to form signals so that humans can see they need help. The story sounds like
the movie “signs”.

This game is entertaining in the sense that you need to focus using the
accelerometer and pick up beam enhancers so that you can beam the sheep
up and move them to their destinated locations. Though it sounds easy,
you do need to use alot of practise. You can suck 2-3 sheep at 1 time depending on your skill.

Sometimes the sheeps are going to be killed by wolves or vultures and you
need to pick up a deadly laser so you as the alien can protect the sheep.
Never heard of kind aliens, have you? Maybe this game will make aliens sound kind enough.

There is also a clock ticking to remind you of the time you have left.You can
pick up clocks to delay the time.

Failure to complete the mission will end up like the screenshot below. Cute
screenie.

I will rate this game 4 out of 5 stars because the game play is fun though it is a simple game. Country music is played throughout the game because of the farm game setting. If you like sheep, you definitely will love this game.

Get this game on iTunes here.

My first review!- Textropolis

Posted by andyl19 on February 8, 2009

What can I say about this game? WOW! Textropolis has blew me away and the fun factor is extremely high. The main objective of this game is to find words that are in cities like Kingstown, Amsterdam, Bucharest, and Singapore. Such as the word ” tins” is in Kingstown.

038

0371

There is no time limit, which is nice so you can take your time with Textropolis and relax. Once you find words an airplane will fly across the screen and tell you the definition of the word. If you are stuck for a long time trying to find a word, simply shake your iPhone or iPod and you will get a hint. There is a total of 30 cities that will keep you occupied for a long time.

039

Overall Textropolis is one of my favorite word games for the iPhone. It’s a game that will last a long time and something that you will keep coming back for more. The only thing I wish Textropolis has is a soundtrack. But that is the only thing. So I give Textropolis 5 stars***** and a big round of applause to the developer, Ian Marsh.

MUST BUY
Price: $2.99
