MMS for iPhone : SwirlyMMS

The iPhone does have some drawbacks, MMS was said to be one of them. But even then that drawback was filled with a 3rd Party Application called as SwirlyMMS. SwirlyMMS worked till Firmware 1.1.4. The new 2.0 Firmware brought come core system changes in the Firmware and thus needed a recode of most older Applications.

Recently the Official Blog of SwirlyMMS announced that they’ve successfully ported it to 2.x Firmware and have confirmed it works.

The application is not yet released. It will be available soon on Cydia and Installer. Expect a Public Release soon !

The game will be featuring Mission Impossible 3 actress Margaret Quigley who will act as your Guide throughout the game. The game most probably will be controlled using the iPhones builtin Accelerometer. The Graphics hopefully should be on par with most other Handheld devices like Nintendo DS or PSP.

iHologram : Amazing iPhone App

iHologram from the name itself gives us a hint of what it does. iHologram works by assuming a constant viewing angle (35-45 degrees), typical for when the device is placed on a tabletop. The 3D Scene’s perspective is then warped using anamorphic perspective, making the object appear to jump off the screen.

This indeed looks very cool. Check out the Video below :
