Before we get to this week's apps, I ran into a problem recently with my iPhone that I was able to quickly fix after a little online research. I had recently synced my iPhone only to find that most of my music was gone. When I got home and plugged in to my computer I saw that almost all of my storage space was taken up by "Other." Only about a third was music, about 900MB for programs better believe it (you!), and some smallish amount for photos. wingsfreeware read more.
But more than half of the storage space out of 16GB was "Other," which is for videos presumably, but I don't have a single video on my iPhone. A quick Google search brought me to a Web site that's part of the CNET family (shame on me for not checking there first). Our good friends and coworkers over at iPhone Atlas had already talked about this problem some time ago and had a very strange, but effective way to fix it. For reasons unknown to them, the fix required going into your e-mail account, navigating to the trash section, and erasing deleted e-mails. It seemed far-fetched, but when it was tried by me and went back to iTunes, my iPhone had returned to normal. If you're having this problem, or experience it some time in the future, you really know what to do now!
For this week's apps, I decided to write about a simple free utility I found and a tower defense game you'll need to buy to play. This free application is a one-trick pony, but it does its trick quite well Night Stand is a free, simple, yet elegant clock utility that's exquisite for (you guessed it) your night stand. Twingly: "Um...what?".
The iphone app displays a digital clock on screen with big easily read numbers so it's simple to check the time when you're bleary-eyed in the middle of the night. Find Night Stand in the iPhone settings section to decide on three colors, show what day of the week it is, toggle 24-hour time, and turn off autolock. masterghost there.
Frankly, it doesn't do much beyond show the time (and you may want to leave it charging), but for a free application this comforting digital clock is a nice, simple addition to your iPhone. helperclothing there. Unfortunately there's no alarm, but the developers say that in future versions we should expect to see one along with more skins and other enhancements. Start building your maze of towers early so you get maximum damage on every type of runner.
Field Runners ($4.99) is a polished tower defense game with crisp graphics, realistic sounds, and extremely addictive gameplay. I talked about the free TapDefense in last week's post, and while that is a great game, there's something to be said for the smooth graphics and open path style of the tower defense genre found in Field Runners. Instead of defending a set path, in this game you need to construct your towers in such a way that forces the baddies to take the most damage. rutorraw. As you progress you earn money, which allows you to buy more towers also to upgrade old ones. You also can unlock maps as you get further into the game for a bigger challenge. Field runners doesn't have as many available towers as TapDefense, but the developers promise more content and towers in coming releases.
Either way, any tower defense fan will appreciate the overall look and feel of this challenging game. Have you had the same storage problem on your iPhone? Did the fix work? Which tower defense game do you like better out of Field and TapDefense Runners? Let me know in the comments! androthis read more.
