Best Iphone Download Site Review ? Iphonegeek Review

The latest Apple product launched is the iPhone. It’s a mobile phone that has a camera, an internet device and a multimedia player. It also comes with a virtual keyboard, a multi-touch screen and buttons that will help you use the iPhone.

To maximize the experience that the iPhone brings you need to look for a site that offers iPhone downloads. There are a lot of iPhone files available to download online. While you might be tempted to download every single iPhone file you find, should only use the best sites to download these files.

Here are some of the things that you should consider before looking for iPhone download sites: Good download speed. Everyone wants to download their iPhone files without having connection problems while being fast. The best sites for iPhone downloads are those that give you a fast connection and you have no problems with the downloads.

No fees for downloads or monthly. The best iPhone download site wouldn’t be based on a subscription, so you don’t have to pay each month to be able to download files. Also, if you pay for each download then that site can’t be called the best.

Sites that offer memberships in exchange for one time fees without any recurring charges are the best, as you will be billed only once. Once you buy that membership, you don’t have to pay again and you can download as many files as you want without any restrictions.

Very large media collection. A good site for iPhone downloads has a very large media collection from a lot of categories of sports, music, TV shows, movies, software and games. This way you can find everything you need for your iPhone on one site.

Confidential and secure registration – it’s important that the site you pick will treat your privacy seriously. They shouldn’t share your email or information with anyone else. 100% Pop-up and spyware free.

Even if you have adware and anti-virus software installed on your PC to protect your computer, you should also make sure that the iPhone files are secure and that you don’t download spyware or viruses on your PC.

Free software for DVD to PC to iPhone.

If you find the best site for iPhone downloads, you will probably also get software and tools that you can use to transfer the files from the PC to the iPhone. It should also be easy to use after installation.

Free technical support 24 hour.

24/7 free support is what you should expect from the site that you choose. You need to receive support within 24 hours for your questions. Elaborate tutorials that take you step by step and explain what you should do.

See if the site you pick has such tutorials and what tools they offer you to download and then transfer the files to the iPhone. If these exist, you can download the files as soon as you register even if you’re a beginner.

Check out my iPhone Geek review for the best iPhone download site i have found after reviewing more than 10 iPhone download sites

SimCity for iPhone Review

SimCity for iPhone Review

Recently the ultra popular The Sims has overshadowed the SimCity game franchise. However, these two games both deal with the same style of gaming- simulation. I feel, as do many others, that SimCity has a lot more depth as compared to Sims. The idea of building a city is lot more fun as compared to living a virtual life. Building a city is more exciting and involves a lot more challenges. Deciding whether your Sim needs to take a bath or not is hardly comparable to a city building exercise.

Many of us discovered SimCity on our Super Nintendo in the early 90’s. For us youngsters, the game was good enough to keep us addicted to the game for hours. The game seemed like the best game ever. The only problem we faced was that of lack of funds. The tax money refunds received every New Year was splurged on the game and that seemed the best way to spend the money then. Of course, the money problem never really goes away.

I was lucky enough to play all versions including the new ones of this game. Each seemed to be better than the original version. Some consider the iPhone versions to be inferior to the latest SimCity 4. However, the slow pace of this version actually is a lot more enjoyable than expected. Playing the GTA missions and creating Sims can become very complicated. This game is a lot simpler than the latest versions. Playing this game is similar to playing the first version of this game, albeit with a few extra features.

Do not expect as many features as are available in the latest versions. However, this does not mean the game is devoid of all cool features. If you are new to this game, performing the duties of the mayor and converting a vacant piece of land into a world class city will require a lot of time and efforts.

Everything needs to be taken into consideration. You need a nice balance of residential structures, businesses, and factories. Too many or too few of one can lead to your entire system falling apart. You need to set the tax rates, build and fund police and fire stations, lay down the roads and power lines that will connect them all, and make sure you don’t completely destroy the natural environment in the process. A handy tutorial feature should get new players up to speed on how the game is played, but experimentation will likely be the key.

As far as graphics goes, you cannot find a better game on the iPhone as on date. Zoom in from the sky and enjoy a detailed view of your city. You can watch your city start off small and become a big metropolis. The graphics is well complemented by good music. The songs and the tunes are inspiring as well as relaxing.

Controls might have been a very problematic issue for this game. Thankfully, it poses no problems whatsoever. The left side and the bottom portion of the screen contain buttons that lead you to menus. There are different menus for different actions and each one helps you build your city further. You also have a group of advisors who shall appear when summoned to help you out. You will have to zoom out when placing structures as it will help you ensure the structures are aligned properly.

SimCity is a great game with just one flaw- it is not suitable for the iPhone/iPod. Building your own city, focusing one each and every aspect of the city, enjoying the great graphics and audio and zooming in and out as and when you please- all this puts a lot of stress on your phone. The game lags and slows down very often and even crashes when the city reaches a certain stage of development. While earlier versions were close to being classified as unplayable, the latest 1.4 version does not improve things by much. The game is fun until your city is completed and starts growing rapidly. That is when the game crashes and keeps crashing.

SimCity has all the essential requirements to keep the gamers occupied for hours. However, this fun lasts until the game begins to crash. After that, you better start all over again. However, until the crash, the game is one of the best around. If the bugs get fixed, this game will surely deserve a higher rating. However, until then, there is no other alternative to a low rating.

Total Score – 7/10

Motif iPhone 4 Case from Griffin Technology (Review)

The Motif is a gel-like TPU plastic that’s flexibly, but gummy rigid. The case feels pretty form fitted to the iPhone without adding a whole lot of bulk. It has a slightly tacky feel which provides good grip, but also can attract some lint. On the back the case has a 3D diamond design that appears to shift slightly in changing light. The Motif is sold in a single “smoky tint” and retails for .99. www.griffintechnology.com Looking for more iPhone 4 cases and accessories? Check out my iPhone 4 video playlist: www.youtube.com

Space Invaders for iPhone Review

Space Invaders for iPhone Review

Space Invaders is over 30 years old now if you can believe it, and still ranks as the number one arcade game of all-time, and likely will for all-time, unless arcades make a miraculous comeback around the globe.

Space Invaders for iPhone resembles the classic game a lot. This is a plus point as far as retro gamers are concerned. Other games of this genre like Pac-Man and Tetris have undergone upgrades to make it suitable for mobile gaming. However, Space Invaders has not deviated from its original mode. As a gamer, you have no option to save the game. This means you can progress far in the game only if you ready to drop everything else. The level of difficulty is quite tough and the controls need some tweaking and improvement.

Space Invaders is a 2-D shooter, with you controlling a little laser at the bottom of the screen. In the middle of the screen rest hordes of aliens who slowly descend upon you. As more and more of the critters are blasted into pixelly smithereens, the remaining aliens pick up their speed, moving across the screen with increased urgency. The sound also increases in intensity, getting the heart rate pumping as things proceed into overdrive. The aliens will also fire off occasional blasts of fire at you, though you have handy bunkers to hide behind for protection. These bunkers will gradually be destroyed by the aliens though, after which you’re on your own.

After completion of one level, you enter the subsequent level which is a bit more difficult than the preceding one. The real indicator of your success or failure in Space Invaders, like most of the early arcade games, is your score. This game can be, at least in theory, played indefinitely. The absence of an online leaderboard to boast about your gaming skills is a drawback. What is the fun in scoring a lot if you cannot spread the word amongst others? Space Invaders is extremely challenging but can quickly become monotonous.

It must be noted that there is one area where Space Invaders has not changed even one bit. The graphics and sounds department is practically the same that was used in the arcade versions. Except for the option of colorful aliens to blast and upgraded backgrounds, everything else remains the same. If you are hoping to scare your girlfriend with the aliens, you are in for a disappointment. The aliens look like crabs and bats and are not even remotely scary. If you have played this game before, the bleep and bloop sounds will bring back fond memories.

The game controls include the classic control option, the touch screen control option and the accelerometer controls. In the first one, you have an on screen joystick to control the laser. The second one is the least functional while the last mode is the coolest one amongst them all.

This game has what it takes to keep the player entertained. However, considering the fact that Retro Game Challenge is available on DS, it remains to be seen whether anyone would want to pay for this game on the iPhone. There is nothing wrong with the game. However, the question is whether the game is good enough to attract the gamers. The developers could have at least added some new features to the game to make it more interesting. If you’re desperate for some space invaders on your iPhone, then this game is worth getting. For everyone else though, there is nothing new here, and not much point in getting the game.

Score: 6/10

Google Earth for You Iphone Review

Google Earth for You Iphone Review

Google Earth for the iPhone

You guessed it. Google’s developers have been hard at work,  because they just released Google Earth for the iPhone. That amazing program that we have all spent hours playing with, is just a touch away.  This version of Google Earth is as ever bit impressive as the desktop application.

Pros

The multi-touch interface makes this program very easy to use and navigate around. It has all the same remarkable satellite and aerial imagery as the desktop version. Leave it to Google to integrate the browser into this app which allows you to directly link to Wikipedia related articles and photos from Panoramio. Plus you can seamlessly jump from the browser back to Google Earth. It also can adjust to the terrain.

Cons

A setback with the tilt function built into Google Earth, is if you hand it to someone it will tilt and move the focus which can get annoying. On a positive note, you can turn the auto-tilt feature off under the settings option.  Each time you start the program it will zoom in to the last place you looked at, which wastes unnecessary time.  The current version does not have the ability to show street names. It looses functionality points with us on this part.

Outcome

This is probably one of the better Apps we’ve seen in a while.  It really shows of the processing power and graphic ability of the iPhone. Google Earth’s iPhone App, is a definite winner in our book.
