Real Soccer 2009, released this week by developer GameLoft, is easily the best sports game I've seen on the iPhone to date.

I've seen a lot of great iPhone applictions, but it's been a while since I've seen one as clever and entertaining as PocketGuitar. PocketGuitar turns your iPhone into a virtual guitar, allowing you to strum and press strings as you would on a real guitar. Whether or not you're a guitar player, it's a blast strumming [...]
LED Football from iPhone application development shop TouchGrove is a fantastic recreation of the old hand-held football game from the 80's. The game looks absolutely identical to the original, and features the original sounds as well. For those of you who didn't waste their youth on this game: the user controls a little red light [...]
* Editor's Note: We've reviewed many translator apps since this article first published in 2008. For more up-to-date-information check out the iPhone translator Travel Interpreter. When it rains, it pours. Since reviewing Talking Phrasebooks we've been inundated with requests to review other translation apps. We gave BdTranslator passing marks in our review earlier today. Next [...]
AppCraver reviewed translation app Talking Phrasebooks recently, so when Alan Cook from Bad Dog Apps sent us a free test version of BdTranslator, another translation app, I thought we'd take a look at it and compare it to Talking Phrasebooks. BdTranslator allows for translation of phrases in 16 languages to any of those other languages and [...]
I was getting the Apple Screen of Death repeatedly on my phone last night, so I had to do a complete restore. This morning I was confronted with this: Nice way to start a Saturday.
We caught up yesterday with Tony Chen from Elite Web Central over email. Tony is the developer of Daily Wallpaper, a web application for the iPhone. AppCraver: When did you start developing web applications for the iPhone? Tony Chen: Our site was launched about a month ago, and our first web application, "Daily Wallpaper" was [...]
I've documented my problems with Aurora Feint previously. I wasn't able to get past the opening screen without having the application crash. Several reinstallations later, I was finally able to play the game, only to get stuck in the first section of the game without any way to progress or quit. One last reinstallation later, [...]
Opening weekend of the NFL is just days away, which means fantasy football draft season is in full swing. Perfect timing for Fantasy Football Draft Central '08 for the iPhone to come along. Great idea - an iPhone app to replace the piles of magazines and stacks of printed-out cheat sheets and injury reports that [...]
The Mobile Phone Telescope is a nice add-on to the iPhone and the first of its kind that I've seen. The equipment consists of two pieces - a clear plastic cover for one side of the phone, and another clear plastic cover connected to a basic telescope for the other side. When you click the [...]
Got this when trying to download the free app Hanoi. My credit rating must have taken a swift and substantial turn for the worse.
AppCraver caught up recently with Brian Wurster, developer of the popular Tangrams iPhone application. AppCraver: When did you start developing applications for the iPhone? Brian Wurster: I am a PC developer by trade, so programming for the iPhone was completely new to me. I have been doing it for a couple of months now as [...]
iMaze is actually pretty fun. I was surprised. I’ve complained in an earlier post about actually mechanical games like this. But, for some reason, the iPhone version is fun. The game is just like a marble maze. You use the motion control of the iPhone to control how the marble moves around. You have to [...]
Aurora Feint has gotten great reviews from just about everyone who has played it. Unfortunately, a lot of people can't play it. For a substantial number of people who have downloaded the app, including me, the app crashes every time you try to load it. I've tried to figure out how to fix to problem [...]
Our friends at PosiMotion clued us in to the upcoming release of GolfFlyOver, an app that gives you a bird's-eye view of any of 12,000 golf courses they have in their database. But wait, there's more: There won’t be any surprises on the golf course for iPhone owners now that GolfFlyOver puts aerial views of [...]
