Theatrhythm Final Fantasy hits iPhone, iPad today
No big surprise here, the beloved 3DS rhythm game is out for iOS devices today (New Zealand shop, U.S. link incoming). Also unsurprising: in-app purchases are insane in the membrane, crazy insane, got no brain.
The app is free to download with two songs (“One Winged Angel” and “Zanarkand”), but then you’ll spend $0.99 on each song, $2.99 on each song bundle for the numbered Final Fantasy games, and $1.99 on each character. Buying all of the content will set you back around $90. Oh, and this mobile edition lacks the EMS feature that lets you play extended versions for a number of songs.
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for 3DS is currently $30 at Amazon (includes around 80 songs, more available as DLC).
You can grab the iPhone and iPad Pokédex app in North America and Europe now, so you can conveniently access info about a variety of Pokémon on your iOS device.
The app is $1.99 with data for the Pokémon of the Unova region — regional packs for Kanto, Johto, Sinno, Hoenn are priced at $5.99 each. If you want the complete set, you’ll end up spending around $26. For comparison, the Pokédex 3D Pro app on eShop is $15.
Pokédex app coming to iPhones and iPads in Japan tomorrow. I know Nintendo has vowed not to bring its games to smartphones, but this isn’t as big a surprise as you’d think — it isn’t the first iOS app The Pokemon Company (a Nintendo subsidiary) has put out, and it’s not like these releases are anything like the real games. Also remember that the last app never released outside Japan.
The iOS Pokédex is initially cheaper than the $15 Pokédex 3D Pro app on eShop. It’s ¥170 ($2) to get the iOS edition with Unova Pokémon, but getting data for the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh regions will cost an extra ¥500 ($6) each. You could buy a real Pokedéx with that money!

So many tears are being spilled today over The World Ends With You - Solo Remix, Square Enix’s newly announced iPhone and iPad port for its beloved DS RPG.
We already knew that the company would announce the iOS game when its countdown page expired today, but there were some cruel promises that there might be more news that would excite fans, that maybe there would be a 3DS sequel announced or something else awesome.
Nope! All we got was this trailer for the iOS game’s release tomorrow ($17.99 on iPhone, $19.99 on iPad), and some details on the port’s new features. Before Square Enix disabled ratings on this video’s Youtube page, it had thousands of dislikes and only a handful of likes.

The Gun Stylus Assault Rifle Edition, demonstrated with Operation Neptune Spear on iPad. Though Plow Games developed this for use with iOS devices, it’s quite possible this would work with any touchscreen device, including the 3DS, DS, Vita, etc.
This is the absolute most realistic touchscreen gun controller you can find. It perfectly accurately reproduces the action of poking something with a tiny firearm.

Papercraft iPad presentation. This creation by Tubbypaws is better than both the actual iPad and the Apple event at which it was revealed by a real Steve Jobs. In fact, looking at it makes me almost, kinda, care about the iPad a little.
It would be a convenient device with which to show people pictures of this rad papercraft. Okay, back to my regularly scheduled total apathy toward the giant iPhone.
So long as I’m talking abot the iPad, I feel it’s my duty to post this video of Pee-Wee playing with the tablet:

The iPad looks alright, but the Calculator Boy is a magical device in a class of its own. Along with its built-in (non-virtual) keyboard and insane battery life, it offers a wide range of useful and entertaining apps: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, boobless, etc.
Also, its 3G support isn’t tied to any carrier, so you won’t have to depend on AT&T’s shoddy network for your data plan. Day one purchase, y’all.
[Update: I noticed some people calling this a mod; it’s actually a real product that a company called Playthings sold years ago.]
