OK, so I'm getting an iphone 5 whenever its delivered.

How can i get in on these free deals on two iphnes coming.

what I did was make itunes accounts and found the free games i wanted (ticket to ride, etc) hit the free app button, let them start downloading, then switched to the other itunes account and did the same thing or each app.

Does this save it to my account like android as in i can redownload it once i get the phone since its on my account. or is it a one time download?


I don't know who will be using these two phones, but it's worth noting that you can have one iTunes store account set up on more than one phone. You can still sign into iCloud, Gamecenter, etc. with a different one. For example, I have my iTunes account set up for the App Store on both my phone and my wife's, that way if I buy an app/game, I can put it on her phone too at no extra cost.

Not a deal, but Rayman Jungle Run is up on the store. Universal for $2.99. Played the first few levels and it seems great if you liked Origins.

Staying on the COD tip, COD:BLOPS Zombies is $1.99. Good thing is, it's universal unlike COD:Z.

Anodia is good if you like arkanoid/breakout games. Well worth the download.

Fragger and Fragger HD both dropped to free. Good game:

Thanks. Enscripted just went free again. I play it daily (every day there is a new movie quote that you need to unscramble). I probably enjoy it more than I should.

Also, I got a popup from "The Heist" a short while ago that MacHeist 4 mission 1 is now live. It is kind of a mini point and click adventure with puzzles (the emphasis is more on the puzzles than the story). Not fantastic, but an ok diversion for free, and, much like "The Heist", it rewards you with free Mac software. Also, look for Macheist 4 Agent, and Macheist 4 nanomission 1. There are separate iPhone and iPad versions of each (I imagine the giveaways are the same). Sorry for not including links, but that would be 6 links which is a real pain when posting from the phone.
Will 'watch Family Guy with you and explain the pop culture references you don't understand' for food.

So I went to update to iOS6 this morning. What a pain in the butt. It's 626MB but it wants at least 2.5 GB of storage free. I was just about out of space anyway so I had to delete a bunch of stuff just to update. Now I'm just a little happy that I'm not up for a phone upgrade this year since they still have the same price to memory ratio as last year (and the year before too I think). I sure hope next years' model will have more memory for the money.

Woot!! VZW shipped our phones today. Standard overnight but delayed delivery. :( Sad part is nobody will be home to sign for them. Hopefully I can still pick them up later in the evening.

Horn has dropped to $2.99 (down from $6.99)!

This game is supposed to be really good. Definitely tempted at this price.

Man, 2 very tempting games for good prices: Horn and SFxT.
However, the lack of play time I've invested in MvC2, Street Fighter Volt, and countless action/adventure games means my cheap ass is going to cheap pass.

Anyone else disappointed with ios 6? I updated my ipad 2 this afternoon and don't think it was worth the effort. At least ios 5 had some cool new features- gestures, new keyboard, tabs in safari, etc.

I'm disappointed that my iPhone will no longer connect to Wi/Fi.

Ditto. It kept popping up a window that goes to a non-working page on apple.com

I was having the same problem and apparently a lot of other people were too. I found a fix though. Go to Settings --> Wi-Fi --> press the blue circle with the arrow on it next to the network you want to connect to --> scroll down to the bottom and under HTTP Proxy select Auto. Then it should work.

It works without doing anything now actually - Apple seems to have deleted their wifi test page somehow (hence the Apple site popup saying 'page not found'), but they seem to have fixed that page.

Ugh, yeah, but there's still a lot of IAP listed for it in the app store. Anyone actually play it yet who can say how necessary the IAP is? I had this on my wishlist on App Shopper, but I'm having second thoughts now...

Even if the name Zynga is just affiliated with it, I'd stay away personally.

Just look at that giant list of IAPs. Fool me once...

I heard SFxT is charging tokens (bought via in-app purchase) to play ranked matches? Is that true? Crapcom at it's finest...

iOS 6 has the greatest feature improvement since copy and paste. You no longer have to type your password for evey single update. This was so annoying!!!!

No need to enter password for updates? Yeah to that. I still haven't updated yet. I also have been hearing good things from my friends about some other improvements.

I'm downloading it now - I'll report back once it's done installing... taking forever though.

My personal opinion is that playing Capcom games vs other people on iOS devices sucks - it's super slow and just not the same on a tiny screen. For me, they're more for killing time with Street Fighter characters. I'll save online play for the console versions.
