Shooting Watch Emulator Available on iTunes Store

Posted April 2nd 2009 by kino.

In what might have at first sounded like a pretty cool April's Fool joke, Hudson Soft announced the release of an iPod Touch/iPhone software based version of its Shooting Watch line of devices. Just like its yellow plastic counterpart, but going for a much cheaper US$0.99, the purpose of the Shot Watch app is simply to measure how fast one can repeatedly press a button within 10 seconds. Unlike the physical gadget, Shot Watch will feature six different modes (Shooting, Time, Stop, and the unlockable Secret 1, Secret 2 and Secret 3), and allow users to upload their scores to Hudson's online ranking servers.

Some will miss the tactility of the real thing, but at least the more than reasonable price will get you a fun piece of geek culture. Reasonable until you factor glass replacement costs from rubbing a lighter across your iPhone's screen, you damn cheater!

Hit the jump below for the embedded trailer featuring Takahashi Meijin himself.

iPhone OS 3.0 Preview

Posted March 20th 2009 by kino.

Apple has issued beta versions of its upcoming iPhone OS 3.0 with assorted SDK, to partners worldwide. New in this release are some much requested features. The most visible from the Home screen is a small search icon, situated left of the page numbers dots. By sliding the page left of the main Home screen, users can now access the new Spotlight application, allowing them to type in search strings that span the entire device for matching songs, videos, or text.

Copy and Paste is another long awaited addition. Double tapping text will bring out a selection box that can be dragged or magnified for a clearer view. Copying/Pasting also works with photos, and even across applications, just like it would under Windows or MacOS.
