Here’s a great app for drawing pixel art on your iPhone/iPod and iPad.
I highly recommend this. I have been playing with it for hours the last few weeks. It’s really fun and easy to use. It includes a lot o great features for making games. Draw anywhere you have iPhone/iPod and or iPad, at the cafe on the train or on the bus. Draw a quick icon of a beer bottle or martini glass at the pub with your drink as a model! Draw a quick pixel art portrait of your favorite bartender with one hand and your *drink in the other. (I don’t recommend drawing while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. All references to drinks in this article are fruit juice only.)
Ever wonder where the original Mac icons came from?
May be not. Do you need self control? Maybe. Self control is app that blocks incoming and outgoing mail servers for a predetermined period of time. It effectively lets you turn off email, twitter and facebook updates until you’re done with what you are working on.
This looks like a pretty interesting alternative method to get Flash on the iPhone and iPad. From what I have read it sounds like it’s slower that regular Flash especially when it comes to interactive stuff like games. At this point it’s probably good for ads.
Thanks to Karaminder for pointing me to this.
Can’t believe that Steve Jobs would let the iDevices miss out on this:
Here’s what the head of Adobe has to say about Steve Job’s positions on Flash being excluded from the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Here’s a great discussion of the Flash vs. HTML5. The funny thing about this, is, in some respects these guys really don’t get what Flash does. Great discussion on the future of the web and what to expect with the future of web development.
An interesting look at the iPad. The suggestion is that Flash on the iPhone would reduce the exclusivity of the device. Developers working with Flash, if it were available on the iPad/Phone, could be making apps for all of the devices that support Flash. By only allowing Apple approved languages on the i devices apps for the devices will only appear there.
Thanks to James for this link.
