Prince of Persia Retro
All right, so many of you gamers out there know and love the most recent renditions of Prince of Persia, such as those that came out for the PC, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, PSP, DS, and Wii. Most of the versions of Prince of Persia that have been made in recent years have been updated with cutting-edge graphics, complex story lines, and realistic worlds and controls. Long before the Prince of Persia game franchise was polished into what we see today, the game was a simple, addictive, entertaining, and original 2-dimensional side-scroller. Well, now you can relive all of those fun times playing Prince of Persia Retro on your iPhone. The PoP Retro app features those nostalgic old-school graphics that will just have you smiling like you were a little kid on your MS-DOS system, Game Boy, or Atari ST. One dollar is a tiny price to pay for a pleasant blast from the past like this gem.
Ever since this e-book movement took off, with e-book readers like Amazon’s Kindle and the Barnes & Noble Nook igniting the industry, there has been a pertinent issue that has been brought to our attention. This is the seemingly age-old battle between the “cold” digital medium and the “warm” analog medium. Well, now iPhone users can put all those issues aside with BookLover, an app that seeks to harness the power of digital technology to help you enjoy your much-loved “analog” (or actual) books. With this app, you can browse through available books, adding the book to your “bookshelf,” which displays the book cover, synopsis, and other information about the books. This way, you can keep track of books you want to read or buy, as well as those that you already own or have read in the past. You can even make notes for each book, write reviews, use bookmarks, make suggestions, categorize your bookshelf, and share your BookLover info through Facebook or email. A great app at just one buck!
