NFS Undercover for iPhone Released

iPhone already has a plethora of some awesome Racing based games. Some of my favorites included GTS World Racing, Asphalt 4, Speedburst and a few others. But I’d always been waiting for the Need for Speed (NFS) Series to get ported over to the iPhone ever since EA took keen interest in developing iPhone/iPod Touch applications.

Well finally the wait is over and EA has just released its latest iteration of the NFS series – NFS Undercover for the iPhone !

Here’s how the Tagline goes :

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? Get behind the wheel of the world’s #1 racing franchise to find out! Explode into a racing frenzy on your iPhone and iPod touch in this action packed adventure of hot pursuit and betrayal.

IGN.com’s Levi Buchchan says :

“Not only is the game extremely fast, especially when you tap the on-screen NOS button, but the graphics outstrip anything that your’ve seen on the iPhone thus far.”

This comment might be enough (apart from this being from the NFS Series) for you to purchase this game right away !

Free App to Use iPhone as Modem

There’s have been quite a few ways to use your iPhone as a Modem. Earlier methods were cumbersome and too complex for normal users.

Then came an easier way, an app called NetShare was launched which made things very easy.

I had also posted a Tutorial to Use your iPhone as Modem via the NetShare Application.

But NetShare was not a free application. An alternative to NetShare has just been released and is now available via Cydia !

The Application is named simply as “iPhone Modem” and promises to tether your iPhone within just 10 seconds !

I haven’t personally tried it yet, but from what I heard it works just as advertised and easy to use !

Get it now from Cydia.

About those wondering what Cydia is, Cydia is a AppStore like Application. You need to JailBreak your iPhone.

KeyVib : Tactile Feedback for iPhone

A new plugin of sorts has recently appeared in Cydia which makes the iPhone Vibrate with each key press. This takes the iPhone 1 step closer to tactile feedback.

The application is named KeyVib and provides just a Toggle Switch to Enable or Disable the Vibration. The software is reported to not drain much battery and is pretty conservative in terms of battery usage.

KeyVib is currently available via the iSpazio Source.

Note : To use this Application you need a JailBreaked iPhone and 2.0+ Firmware !
