Aspects, Pinball Fantasies

  • Star Walk ($5) is a realistic stargazing guide for the iPhone and iPod touch. The application helps users recognize objects in the night sky by locating them on an interactive star map. After selecting a specific item users can then view additional facts, such as celestial coordinates. Star Walk also features a "time machine" that lets users see expected skies from the past or future. The latest update also features a new Star Spotter function which uses the digital compass in the iPhone 3GS to display a live representation of the sky.

  • PhotoBeamer ($1) can be used to wireless share images with a group of people. The application allows users to connect their devices with a Bluetooth connection and then choose which images they would like to share. Up to three people can join the same connection and share images simultaneously. The application includes the ability to choose the image quality to use, lower quality results in faster transfers and vice versa.

  • Beep My Cell ($1) is a tool that can be used to send push notifications which emit a constant beeping sound. This can be used to locate the device when it has been lost. In order to send the notification users must log into BeepMyCell.com. When the device has been found the beeping can then be shut off by launching the application.

  • Aspects ($2) can be used to calculate image width and height in pixels, inches, and centimeters. Users can either create custom aspect ratios or select from 23 predefined ratios. The application provides customization options for width and height, along with resolution in pixels per inch or pixels per centimeter.

  • Pinball Fantasies ($6) is an iPhone port of the Amiga pinball arcade simulator that was released in 1992. The game features the original four tables which have been updated with remastered graphics and interactive soundtracks. Pinball Fantasies also includes both portrait and landscape orientations and a hardcore difficulty mode with faster ball speeds.
