If you guys have any App problems, make sure you are dumping your ram frequently. Apple suggests resetting the device (holding down the top button and home until the reboot) but I find this is unnecessary. All you need to do is press the home button twice, then tap and hold on any of the multitasking icons until they start shaking. Then tap each one until nothing is left running. That way you free up the internal memory so apps run faster/better.

I do this before I start any ram intensive apps such as Hulu, Netflix, and various Shooters.

Does having apps in the bottom bar stress the battery? I've always wondered that.

Oh yeah, I also think apps will eventually come to the Nano. You'd have Mac apps, iPhone/touch apps, TV apps and Nano apps :lol:

Only if those applications utilize push notifications. I don't see how they could use resources otherwise. iOS doesn't have true multitasking, it's more simulated as when you open another app, it's just placing each one on a shelf and going one at a time. I've noticed that if I leave push notifications enabled, some apps will send me pop up indicators even when the app is closed and not in the bottom tray.

There will eventually be Apple TV apps, just indirectly. What Apple will do is take whatever is on your iOS device's display and send it wirelessly over Bluetooth to your AppleTV and show it on the screen. Your iOS device will still do all the processing.

The AppleTV has nand flash inside of it but that's reserved for future OS updates, not necessarily app store use.


Apple TV runs iOS, the only thing stopping it from running apps is that Apple is not allowing it. I thought the people developing the jailbreaks said they could run apps but they couldn't do much because of the memory. Apple probably figured hackers would jailbreak it and decided to remove the memory to prevent major use. I really think it would be ridiculous that I need to have 2 devices in order to use one of them but then again if anyone would do such a douche move it would be Apple.

Well after playing about 45 minutes of Crimson Gem Saga, I'm pretty impressed. The game is clearly a port because the production values are way above most iOS rpg's. The control works decent enough, the voice acting adds a nice touch not seen in to many ipod games, graphics are also fairly well done. One complaint I have is the battle system while fun is a bit annoying to choose commands, I found myself trying to go down one from attack to skills and it went down 2 or 3. While not a game breaker and I was getting a bit better at it seems like a poor way to do it.

Flingy has dropped to FREE for your Thanksgiving flinging fun (http://itunes.apple....d395631319?mt=8).

"Flingy the robot has fallen from his home in the sky!

Propelled by his jetpack, Flingy must swing around spheres to get back to his beloved Mrs Flingy-- but he’s clumsy and needs you to control his grapple!

Flingy is a fun, pick-up and play arcade game designed to keep you coming back for ‘just one more go!’ With challenging physics-based action and lots of upwards speed, Flingy is unlike anything you’ve played before.

Simply tap spheres to grapple to them and tap anywhere to disconnect. Use Flingy’s momentum to fling him higher and higher!

Save Flingy from falling or get a super powerful fling using the new jets button!"

Why? I love the game and played it to death on the Genesis but the on screen action is bananas. I doubt this game is playable after the second stage let alone when you get to the boss that has multiple forms.

It can be done--I did it one the Wii not too long ago--but with just a touchscreen, it would probably be a hopeless endeavor.

It's worth it for that price, but not much more: the game requires an incredible amount of grinding for next to no tangible rewards, and the battle system, while quick, is rather sparse and wears thin.

I played the PSP version for maybe 5 or so hours, then hit a brick wall and completely lost interest.

Amateur Surgeon 2 came out recently and as a result, both AS1 and AS2 are down to $1 each for the time being.

These are ports of Adult Swim flash games (And thus are free to play online.) and are not spectacular but I am such a giant Trauma Center fanboy that I enjoyed these for what they were. AS2 is better by MILES and if you only want one, that's the one to get, but AS1 also has a great many clever operations that you miss out on. Plus, the backstory, but it's almost more interesting to hear Alan tell it in AS2 than to live it in AS1.

They are both just charming games, in my opinion, more than you'd expect from Adult Swim.



Totally agree, I downloaded the AS Christmas Edition on a whim (thanks to the guys here that posted it) and like it so much I paid the $2.99 for AS1. AS2 seems to be a little "less precise" from AS1 in that markers for the different procedures that need to be done are larger so the frustration of having a real "surgeon's hand" isn't as bad. Which is the one thing I hated about AS1, I'd thought I made the entire incision in a procedure and the game wouldn't progress to the next step, turned out that I had missed a small dotted line that ended up underneath some of the tool icons. In AS2 I noticed the cut indicators & dotted lines are larger to help avoid this...

If you can get all 3 for $2 (I think the Christmas one is still free), I'd hop all over it! Great games and possibility for replayability to up your procedure grades...

I played this on PC when it came out back in the day. It's pretty fun. You earn money and buy useless upgrades like goggles.

AS2 definitely fixes a lot of the awful aspects of AS1.

Sadly, Christmas Edition isn't on Itunes any more.

Remember when I mentioned playing games on TV via Apple TV's connection to the iOS device? Airplay that was just released with the latest iOS update today does that, jut not with gaming yet. It will stream movies, photos, and music though.



I see them eventually adding Gaming. So you still game on the iOS device, but it just displays on your big TV screen instead.
