This is definately the most fun app I have downloaded in a long time and its FREE! This was originally just out for the ipad and I would imagine it plays a bit better on that. Well thats what I am putting my bad performance of the Theme Song from Mario Brothers down to (you can hear this below follow the link). You don't have alot of space on the iphone to get your fingers in positions for hitting the different areas of the keyboard or else i just suck at it which is quite possiblle. My wrists are sore from playing it for the last 40 minutes.

This is a free app with the company making revenue by users buying smoola points to buy new songs. They give you 30 smoola points to start with which is pretty pointless as you cant buy anything with it unless you want to get some bach or beethoven, the likes of lady gagas pokerface start at 75 smoolas. Super Mario Bros was the free song of the day and im presuming there will be some more over the coming weeks. It downloads straight to your phone from the app. More songs will be added weekly according to the official smule website. Im off to buy some Smoola dollars, laters!

For anyone who is into comic books and owns an iphone/ipad this is great little application. It lets you read comics that are formatted in pdf, rar, cbr, cbz format. Its a bit strange that it doesnt link you up to the app store or some sort of specialised comic book store to buy comics directly but I guess the app was brought out for people who got fedup paying a tenner for a comic you read in an hour (expensive hobby). Still makes you wonder about Apples whole stance on this, its a legitimate application from their store which directly gives iphone users the ability to read files theyve stolen online. I have been reading the Scott Pilgrim series after stealing it on piratebay :)

Duck Tales, Oo-oo

Im still filling my flat with crap from the 80s. Im getting a pretty large collection of old Nes games from Ebay. Duck tales arrived in the post the other day and it is a classic. You stroll around as Scrooge McDuck who in spite of all his billions wants to stroll around such dangerous places as the amazon armed only with his cane which he uses as a weapon, tool and pogo stick.

This game was hugely successful and the morale of the story kids is that even if your a billionaire its ok to go out and kill a few tribes and steal their gold. Happy hunting, im off to the Himalayas to steal the lost Crown of Genghis Khan.

Ridiculously cool app of the week!

On the tube this morning, a fellow iphone warrior sat down beside me. She was flicking through her apps and I noticed she had one called RunPee. I was intrigued and was dying to get off the tube to see was this on the app store.

I was trying to work out what the hell it could be. Was it some sort of app about pee? WTF! Apple surely wouldn't have allowed some sort of peeing porno app. Maybe it was an unofficial app installed on a jailbroken app.

Finally landed at Liverpool Street to find out it was an app that told you when it was a good time to go for a pee during a film and how quick you would have to be so you wouldn't miss an important scene. I was laughing really hard to myself as I walked through Liverpool Street Station which was attracting some dirty looks off the pissed off Monday Morning crew.

"The iPhone's Runpee app does what?" This was actually a question on who wants to be a millionaire and of course the dude got it wrong! The app is free to download from the app store.

Superbowl Britney Ad

In 2002 I was lucky enough to be in touring America with the DCU Uni Squash team. We were the Boston area and had played a University there whose name doesnt come to mind just now (not Harvard). The coach from the University invited us to his local bar to watch the Superbowl. Well New England won the game as I remember with a long distance field goal with time running out. Well that pub fuckin exploded. Next thing I remember is being hugged by some old man bawling his eyes out screaming "isnt it great when big black men cry". I didnt really get where he was going with this one but there was indeed two large black football players on the pitch in tears hugging.

Anyway to hell with the game, what I remember is the halftime ads and more specifically the Pepsi halftime ad featuring Britney!
