iPhone Apps Announced: Super Monkey Ball, Loopt, Pangea games
During today's Worldwide Developers Conference keynote, Apple showed off some of the applications that have been developed using the iPhone Software Development Kit. We've highlighted some apps of interest here.
Sega Super Monkey Ball
Initially previewed at the SDK launch, Super Monkey Ball now includes over 100 levels. In playing through the last world, Sega demonstrated how they used the iPhone's accelerometer to control the movement of the character.
Loopt is described as location-aware social networking. The app displays a map with pins representing where your friends are. User profiles can show a log of where you've gone and its simple to blog, send in a photo, text, or call your friends.
Pangea GamesPangea Software
has ported 2 games to the iPhone. The first game is Enigmo, which is a physics-based game and makes advanced use of the touch controls as well as the CPU. The second game is Cro-Mag Rally, described as a "cave-man racing game." Both applications are priced at $9.99.
Garageband in your pocket? Kind of... An independent developer, MooCowMusic from the UK developed Band that includes a virtual piano, drums, 12-bar blues "instrument", and a bass. All of the instruments sound very impressive and what you play can be recorded.
