Tease your brain with BrainTeaser

Best iPhone appsIf you like challenging Puzzle cracking games, then BrainTeaser is a game made for you. It can tease your brain in five minutes. At present BrainTeaser from Uwe Meier (developer of exciting puzzle games for the iPhone ) is the top free application available in the App Store.

The concept of the game is simple, but you need a very sharp brain, insight and speed to tame this crazily challenging puzzle game. If you bank on luck, you will likely find yourself stuck.

Its a very addictive mind twister puzzle game. There is a pattern in the lower left side of the screen that you have to copy into the tiles in the main screen. You touch the tiles to flip them around to change color. If you flip one tile, all of the neighboring tiles will also filp. You have to do this in a limited time – so better think fast how the final pattern has to look like after applying the transformations. If you finish it you go to the next level and get bonus points for time left. You have the option to disable the timer, but your score would not be added to the hall of fame.

In the initial levels, you just need to turn the yellow grids to chocolate, however in the higher levels, the patterns become a mixture of the two colors. That’s where the real burning of brain begins.

Warner Bros. to offer 40 iPhone apps by year’s end

Warner Bros. Digital Entertainment said it plans to release 40 iPhone applications by the end of 2009 as the studio seeks to position itself as an end-to-end application distributor with the muscle to develop apps, navigate the App Store approval process and market the end result. Warner Bros. tells Variety it has developed and released about 15 iPhone apps to date, spotlighting film properties including The Dark Knight, Watchmen and the new Terminator: Salvation–some were created within the studio’s theatrical unit and Warner Interactive, while others originate via outside developers.

With Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes applications on tap, Warner adds it also is considering animated episodic video apps and other mobile content efforts built around key brands, as well as a broader range of game, comic book and entertainment apps that aren’t tied to Warner properties.

According to Warner Digital Distribution director of worldwide marketing Stephanie Bohn, the studio’s relationship with Apple is central to its appeal to developers: “It’s difficult [for developers] to have a direct call into Apple,” Bohn said. “We spend time talking with them weekly, if not daily.” Bohn also cited Warner’s vast marketing reach, noting it can differentiate apps through social media marketing, print and TV advertisements, and DVD trailers. “It doesn’t cost a lot to launch an app,” she said. “Relative to a TV show or a film, it’s nothing.”

Week in review: Apple’s pending harvest

If you believe rumors and industry analysts, Apple is getting ready to bring some big products to market.

First and foremost, the company is likely to launch a tablet that’s similar to the iPod Touch, but larger, in the first half of 2010, marking the company’s entry into the Netbook race, according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. In a research note, Munster handicaps the gaps in Apple’s product lineup. The gaping hole: there’s nothing between the iPod Touch and the MacBook. Enter this iPod Touch on steroids for $500 to $700.

Apple’s game plan will revolve around its multitouch patents to cook up something different from your generic Netbook. Munster’s theory makes a lot of sense. A Netbook would tarnish the Mac’s average selling price and potentially cheapen the Apple brand. A tablet wouldn’t. Double bonus: a Mac tablet would compete with Amazon.com’s Kindle e-book reader.

Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook called Netbooks junky, but he never dismissed the consumer demand for them.

We can also expect the next version of the iPhone on July 17, according to AppleiPhoneApps.com, which cited a source who is “closely connected to Apple’s hardware development team.” The Web site posted some details on just what the third-generation iPhone will offer.

Meanwhile, as part of the ramp-up toward releasing this software to the public, Apple began running a stress test of push notifications–the hallmark feature of the new operating system. This system sends notifications to your phone whenever there’s an update from an application, even when it’s not running.

The newest data from Gartner shows that Apple’s share of worldwide smartphone sales grew from 5.3 percent in the first quarter of 2008 to 10.8 percent in the first quarter of 2009. In terms of unit sales, Apple jumped from 1.7 million in the first quarter of 2008 to 3.9 million during the same period in 2009.

While the quarter’s iPhone adoption metrics may be impressive, Apple wasn’t the only smartphone maker with big gains. Research In Motion saw its BlackBerry market share rise from 13.3 percent in first quarter of 2008 to 19.9 percent in 2009. The company’s unit sales grew from 4.3 million to 7.2 million over the same period.
