At first I was shocked to see this as it was on the Japanese iTunes at first and now it's on the US iTunes... PPTV app is now on the iTunes Music Store for free. This allows you to watch streaming the latest American and Chinese or Asian movies and TV on your iPad or iPhone. Language is in Chinese but just click on the photo of the film to access a movie (you can figure it out).

Not to be dense, but are any of the programs subtitled? The Chinese language soundtrack is fine but I'd prefer some sort of translation if that's an option.


Speaking of freebies, another bullet-hell shooter goes FREE for the first time with Aerial Assault.
"In 2012, the doomsday with earthquake and tsunami which people used to imagine is not coming. In Nov. NASA announced they having been found the existent of another creatures in the outer space that could astonished the whole world.

If there are more reviews available there will be located below the last review either page navigation (if in iTunes on your computer) or a "More V" button (if in the app store on your iDevice). The default is to only show reviews for the current version of the app, to view all reviews ever given you have to click the "All Versions" button above the first review.

Yeah, the last time it was on sale, it was on sale for a while. In fact, I thought 99ยข was the regular price, so I decided not to buy it while I played the free version. A couple weeks later I figured I'd get it and the price went back to the usual 2.99. I'm also hoping they drop the price around Easter.
Being cheap doesn't mean you have to be a liar and a thief. Have some respect for yourself.

Important: If you bought an iPad 1 through the AT&T promotion (the one with a free month of 3G data), you may want to call soon to cancel your 3G data plan assuming you don't want to keep paying after the end of the first month.

It seems you are unable to do this from the iPad itself, nor from the website, so you'll need to call their customer service who can take care of it, but it took me 25 minutes...


You can cancel from the iPad. Just go back into Cellular Data in Settings app and tap "View Account". It's in there. Note that you can cancel ahead of time and what this actually does is cancel the auto-renew, it doesn't cancel the current month of service. I'm sure the confusing wording is intentional.

For all you aspiring iPad string slingers, E-Guitar HD has dropped to FREE for the first time.
"This real guitar method will give you great informations & technics to improve your guitar skill.
No musical knowledge is required to use this app, you just need a guitar.
Divided in three sections :
★ Part 1 (E-Folk 11 lessons for beginners)
Learn how to play basic chords, arpeggios and barred chords. Two mounths are required to complete this part.
★ Part 2 (E-Blues 8 lessons for beginners)
Play the 12 Bar Blues from acoustic to electric blues
★ Part 3 (E-Jazz 8 lessons)
Understand Jazz chords theory from II V I sequences over Gypsy Jazz, Bossa Nova, Blues Jazz ..."

If you don't have an iPad but you still want some basic guitar instruction, you may want to download the FREE Beginner Guitar Songs app.
"GuitarJamz.com is pleased to offer you "Beginner Guitar Songs" for your iPhone.
This easy to use music application will let you learn to play the guitar even if you have never even touched the instrument before."

In non-guitar news, Super 7 is the latest OpenFeint FGOTD.
"The next generation of line-drawing games has arrived with Super 7 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Draw lines to combine the numbered discs and try to create 7s. Sure, it sounds simple but can you keep up once negative numbers and multipliers are thrown into the mix?"

This seems kind of cool. Lost Worlds Nature Films has dropped from $2.99 to free. It's an app that provides 12 different free Imax nature films: Africa, Alaska, Antarctica, Australia, Great North, Amazing Journeys, Lost Worlds, Ocean Oasis, Ocean Voyages, A Kingdom for the Dzanga Gorillas, Bears, Wolves.

If you want to switch it to the prepaid plan so you can turn the 3G on/off from the iPad itself, there are some instructions here: http://www.howardfor...33#post14332133

I had a heck of a time figuring out how to do it myself til I Googled for hours and found that guy's forum posting, then asked him for instructions. Even with the instructions it took me over an hour at the AT&T store to get it to work. Sometimes I wonder if they make things difficult on purpose. :roll:

Well, there's Siri (http://appshopper.co.../siri-assistant) which isn't quite the same thing, but you can speak "direction to nearest <etc>" and it will do a decent job. Apple bought the company that did this, I believe, so I'm guessing there will be better voice integration in a future iOS version.

FYI this is a standard android function it's called google voice search. It works really well but I think you can do searches like that in google maps for iPhone.

You can't. Voice commands in the iPhone are pretty limited by comparison. The Google Maps App in iOS also doesn't support turn-by-turn navigation, anyway.

Reiner Knizia's Money is actually being featured as the FAAD main freebie right now.
"Money is a fast-paced and addictive card game based on the original tabletop eurogame release by Reiner Knizia.
You start the game with six bills of random currency. Your goal is to concentrate your reserves into just two or three types of currency before the game ends. To do so, you must spend the money you already have. It takes money to make Money!
Though Money is one of Reiner Knizia's deepest (and richest) card games, it's all been carefully fit into this iPhone release. Recolored bills make it easy to read your currency. Simple gestures allow you to examine your own hand and the bids of your opponents. Everything is animated, for a colorful play experience."

Kamikaze Race is also one of the current FAAD offerings.
"A deceptively simple slot racer, Kamikaze Race features a harried trip through rush hour traffic strapped into a car with no brakes and a stuck accelerator. The simple premise makes it perfect as a quick racing game. Two virtual buttons at the bottom of the screen are used to steer left and right. How far can you survive?"

Rogue Runner
is the new OpenFeint FGOTD.
"You are a highly trained, top secret "super soldier" -- the product of the best military training available, and a little alien technology thrown in for good measure.
But now you want out! Break out of the secret desert base in a stolen jeep with rocket booster technology, or a jumping tank, and floor it.
Get as far as you can before the hordes of men in black, aliens, UFOs, black helicopters, and tailgun-mounted jeeps take you down.
But don't worry, even if they destroy your vehicle, you'll still have a chance to keep going. Leap out of the wreckage and press on!"

Just a heads up for anyone looking for iTunes cards ... ToysRUs currently has a deal where $30 worth of iTunes card purchases and up saves $5. So basically it's $25 for $30 worth of iTunes cards.

The TRU deal has already started, not sure how long it will last but I'm guessing at least through the week. I'm guessing it's part of a promo since TRU just started carrying the iPad 2. Not sure if it's available online but it's definitely active in store and comes out to be a bit better than the Target deal if you do. 2 separate transactions.
