iGo Update 1.4 & 1.5

iGo There have been two update to this app since the last time I reviewed it and, they have added quite a few new features!! The first thing you will notice when you open the app is there are now buttons below the play board. These buttons allow you to go back one move, go forward one move(if you have gone back already), go back an entire turn, zoom out and zoom in. Also, when a new piece is added to the board it puts a little blue asterisk looking thing on top of the piece…I think this makes it easier to see where your opponent just moved. There have also been some additions to the Action menu. You can now view your score, load a previously saved gamed and save your current game (you can change the title of the game to whatever you would like it to be). Good updates! Below are the exact changes with each update and the screenshots.

iGo 1.5:
* zoom/scroll function
* ability to step through loaded games

New App – iSpit 1.5

iSpit This new app is available through Installer.app from the Robota source. To start off I should mention this app will not open if you cannot connect to the internet (like when I’m at work with no edge/wifi connection). That being said, this is a very nifty http server that runs from your iPhone, and allows you to view the contents of your iPhone and download saved media (ie. photos, movies taken with Showtime, etc.) [Read more…]

Guitar Tuner 1.1

Guitar Tuner Another simple app by Robota Softwarehouse source generates tones so you can tune your guitar. A nice interface allows you to select the note easily and shows which string you are tuning by coloring it blue. The tone lasts for about 6 seconds and you can mute it sooner if you’d like by hitting mute or go to another note by tapping on it. There is also a volume control. The only thing this app needs is a little smoother sound. There is a click when the tone turns on and off.

New Game – Chess

Chess Chess is an app available in the Installer.app through the Robota Softwarehouse source. This app opens to a standard chess game. You are white and the iPhone is black. To move your piece just tap on the piece you would like to move and then tap on the square you would like to move it to. The moves are shown at the bottom of the screen and who’s turn it is is displayed at the top of the screen. If you get stuck, you can tap on the Actions button in the top left corner and get a ton of options…you can get a hint, undo your last move, have the game make your next move, play a new game, save your current game, load your previous game, learn more about the app, and donate. There are some settings that you can change as well, just tap the Settings button in the top right corner. It will give you the option to save your game when you exit the app, 4 board layouts to pick from (Basic, Brown, Wood, Funky) and the ability to choose between eight levels of difficulty. The only thing this app is missing is the ability to play with 2 players. Here are the screenshots:
