If you’re like me, then you are a text whore. I live on my phone. For example, I’ve answered about ten texts since I started writing this review.
“How do you ever get anything done?,” you ask.
I have no idea.
I’m a social networking whore, as well. I like anything that connects me with other people, and today’s app does just that.

Read a great developer interview concerning the game at Garage Games Blog Developer Interview Series.
Marble Blast Mobile walks a fine balance between being a casual game and keeping elements that immerse more in-depth gamers. I’ve never had the patience (or hand eye coordination) to stick with action-puzzlers, but MBM somehow wrangled me in and I finished the game in one night. It uses some very clever power-ups to keep level design interesting, my favorite being the gyrocopter, which lets you fly your marble short distances. Tapping your marble lets you jump over short obstacles.
We all know that the iPhone is an amazing tool, but what would make it even better?
Have you ever been talking to someone about a song and had to tell them, while searching through your iPod, “No I don’t have it on me, but its in my iTunes at home?”
We’ve all been there but what if you having that particular song, at that particular moment, is the key to gaining that special someone’s attention? Who knows? It worked for Natalie Portman in Garden State…
You say, “How am I supposed to do that, Jared? I can’t carry my whole music library with me.”
I say, “Bullshit. You ever heard of Simplify Media?”
You reply with, “huh?”
Simplify Media is a must have app for the iPhone. Not only do you get to carry your whole music library wherever you go, you get to carry yours and 30 of your friends as well.
If you have an iPod Touch or an iPhone, I bet you’ve downloaded an app or two.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about or if you’ve been living in a cave for the past six months, go here and learn and then come back.
Everyone on the same page now? Good.
I’ve downloaded tons of apps on my iPhone. I’ve tried the free ones and the paid ones. I even jailbroke my iPhone and fooled around with all of the cool mods that are available in Cydia, which is a must-do but I’ll save that for another time.
There are hundreds of apps out there but most of them are bullshit. Sure, some of them are funny. I mean, who doesn’t want to be the cool kid at school who has a fart machine or a “Thats What She Said” button on hand at all times. You can be the life of the party…for at least ten minutes. Any longer than that, someone is going to come after you with a chainsaw. Trust me. I know.
So, I’ve decided to do a weekly app review, that will hopefully help you weed through the crappy apps and find the cool and useful ones. I’m going to start off with one that I’ve been playing with for about a week now: Distant Shore.
