iPad’s Game List Leaked

PadGadget has spotted some of the iPad games on Apple.com’s iTunes Preview, a Website-based catalog of iTunes store content.

According to PadGadget

We did a quick scan and were able to find several titles clearly marked as HD, a common label developers are now using to indicate an iPad specific version of their app.

HD, however is not a universal title for iPad apps.

Some developers are instead choosing XLto denote their iPad version. This is done to create a universal build so that both the iPhone and iPad versions are contained in a single app.

Some of the games found by Padgadget include :

• Azkend HD

• Flight Control HD

• Grind HD

• HD Recovery

• Labyrinth 2 HD

• NBA Hotshot HD

• Numba HD

• Plants vs. Zombie HD

• Sparkle HD

• Worms HD

• Ammoin HD

Apple has recently started accepting submissions for iPad applications. These applications will be checked and approved by March 27.If approved you might just see the app to be available when the iPad goes on sale on April 3.

Is iPhone’s Digg App Better Than The Website?

Wouldn’t it be nice to share and view all the top stories at one place? It will surely save time and lessen our effort.

Digg.com does exactly the same. Digg has been a common resting place for most of us for quite some time. Now, it’s also available on iPhones. Digg, a popular social news aggregator has released its free app for iPhone which helps you to Digg and view top stories with just a tap from your home screen. Incidentally, it’s named TapTapTap.

Using this app, you can also view popular Diggs by topic (e.g., technology, sports, business, etc.) or forthcoming articles that are about to go popular. Also, you will find buttons to like or dislike the story, a button to save the story and an option to share the link.

Digg’s latest app provides a simplified interface making browsing Diggs real easy. No extra information apart from the stories is present. Even extraneous text about Digg features is absent. It is much easier on the eyes than the site, which comes loaded with tonnes of features, colors and text.

Bookmarking is one of the prime addition to iPhone’s latest app. Now you can browse your favourite categories and bookmark them, so that you can have a look at them later on.

Inspite of its benefits over Digg.com, it sure has some disadvantages. This app doesn’t allow you to post comments and it does not include the video or images section of the site.

Meanwhile be sure to keep an eye out on TapTapTap, which is expected to put some improvements in the coming weeks.

To celebrate the launch of iPhone’s Digg app, TapTapTap is giving away a ColorWare custom, very limited edition Digg iPad every day for 2 weeks!

Ray M45 – Dual Sim Support and Much More for 3500 Rs

Ray has launched it’s new phone – M45 in India and it’s really cheap – Rs. 3500. For those of you who don’t know, Ray is a Chinese brand which started its distribution in India some time back.

The key feature of M45 is that it has slots for two SIM card. Of course, you cannot simultaneously operate on both. However, since they are both active, you will not have to keep switching between them. It has dedicated call buttons for both the SIM cards which helps you to just dial a number and press either of the buttons to make a call from the respective SIM card.

Ray M45 is not at all eye-catching by its looks. It has a very minimalistic and simple design.

Specifications :

  • 176 x 220 pixel display (262K)
  • 2 MP Camera
  • Expandable Memory – upto 4 GB
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth
  • Music Player
  • Large capacity Lithium – Ion battery (1800 mAh). 10 Hrs Talktime and 500 Hrs Standby
  • Dimension – 110 X 58 X 12.2 mm

There are hardly any devices in the market which offer a dual SIM phone at a price around Rs. 3,500. Ray M45 on the other hand, gives you many extra features to go with it. Though the handset lacks style, the phone is definitely ideal for you if you have a  low-budget.

Techie-Buzz Verdict

Not everything of this phone is a show-stopper. If you compare it to Nokia’s high-end smartphones or SE’s superb camera phones then you’re sure to be disappointed. But, if you want to have nearly all the amenities of a smart phone at a low budget price, try Ray M45. It will not disappoint you.
