  • Pure Mobile's got you covered for Halloween with this list of creepy apps for iPhone and iPad

     


    We at Pure Mobile love Halloween almost as much as we love mobile devices. And when the two come together, it's a high-tech house of horrors that we just can't resist.


    If you're anything like us, you'll want to celebrate the scariest (and probably most fun) holiday of the year in all sorts of ways, and thanks to some creepy smartphone apps, you can take your Halloween spirit with you everywhere you go.


    As Halloween quickly approaches, we at Pure Mobile are delighting in finding all the best iPhone, Android and BlackBerry apps for our frightening feature "Macabre goes Mobile."


    Today's all about eerie iPhone apps, but Android and BlackBerry users can expect their own list of apps for those platforms in later instalments.


    1: Free Halloween Sounds Pro for iPhone


    Use sound to scare anywhere a smartphone can go, with Halloween Sounds Pro

     


    Once upon a time, when you wanted creepy Halloween sound effects to scare trick-or-treaters, you had to play them through a stereo. And the speakers aimed at the door were kind of a dead giveaway.


    But with the free Halloween Sounds Pro app for iPhone, you get to control a bunch of spooky Halloween sounds from your smartphone. Sneak up on that unsuspecting teenager who looks just a little too old to be asking for candy, or set the delay to scare the hell out of someone after you've left the room.


    2: iMut8r app for iPhone and iPad



    There are already a couple of apps that let you manipulate photos of yourself and of friends to make horrible monsters on your smartphone. SpookyPic and ZombieBooth are just a couple.


    But iMut8r for iPhone and iPad lets you mutate into a vampire, werewolf, zombie, witch, ghoul, whatever. Mix and match elements for your most hideous Facebook profile pic yet!


    Use your smartphone to turn a picture of anyone into an undead abomination with iMut8r

     


    3: Pumpkin Ninja app for iPhone


    Pumpkin Ninja revives a centuries-old Japanese tradition of slicing jack o'lanterns via smartphone

     


    Addicted to smartphone gaming? The Pumpkin Ninja game app for iPhone lets you swipe at falling pumpkins à la fruit Ninja.


    Not really scary but definitely in the Halloween spirit.


    4. iDrakula app for iPhone



    What's more Halloween than telling scary stories?


    The iDrakula app for iPhone does just that, retelling Bram Stoker's classic Dracula novel with a modern slant through text messages, voicemails, emails and browsers in language geared for the Twitter age.


    iDrakula retells Bram Stoker's classic by sending texts, emails and other messages from the characters to your smartphone

     


    You may get a "text" from a character telling you another chunk of the plot, so the juicy story not only unfolds on your smartphone, but has interactive elements and develops at surprise moments not of your own choosing.


    5. Dark Haunts app for iPhone or Android


    Dark Haunts gives you directions on your phone to the nearest ghost-infested locations

     


    Always itched to go ghost hunting?


    The Dark Haunts app for iPhone claims to help you "find the closest 'real' haunted site near you."


    Dark Haunts' database has over 3,200 haunted locations and is regularly adding new ones. They give you a bit of backstory, and direct you to the ghost-infested locations. You can also choose the type of haunt you want: a restaurant if you're hungry, a hotel if you want a creepy getaway.


    Just don't go crying to the developers if you actually happen to run into a spectre.

  • Non-Standard Gaming Content Reaches a Spend of $1.85B in Q1The first quarter of 2011 gave way to a huge rise in the amount of gaming content that users purchased. In fact, a total of $1.85 billion was spent on gaming content throughout the first quarter of 2011, including the purchase of mobile gaming applications for unlocked iphone 4.

This number identifies more than 31% of the total spending on video games in the United States totaled 25.9 billion in the first quarter of 2011.


     


    It will be interesting to see how the gaming industry continues to grow, especially with the growth that we have seen since the release and rise to popularity of the various smart phones and mobile devices in recent months. The nonstandard gaming purchases include game rentals, the subscriptions to various gaming services; full digital downloads of games, social networking games, and downloadable content. It will be interesting to see how quickly to gaming community continues to rise in terms of overall spent for each quarter.


    Non-Standard Gaming Content Reaches a Spend of $1.85B in Q1


    It is clear that for most, gaming has become way to escape reality and the harsh reality the current state of the economy. Users that are looking to find a way to kill some time, often five purchasing gaming hardware and actual games is a great way to kill time. However, finding the game that they like to play maybe a bit more difficult than you think.

As nonstandard gaming purchases continue to rise in popularity, you can bet that overall gaming fans will increase as well.

  • iPhone App “The Heist”
    Posted on June 2, 2011 by Pure Mobile

    iPhone App “The Heist”For users that have been a Mac user for quite some time, you have probably heard of a program called the MacHeist, which allows users to bundle programs together for a very low price. The Heist, an unlocked iPhone 4 app has been confused for Macheist but is a different beast entirely. The Heist is a unique puzzle game that is very in depth and can be very addictive. The app allows users to navigate through four different types of puzzles over the course of sixty levels on their way to beating the game, with future versions of the app looking like they could be on the horizon as well. The four different puzzle types all have different themes, which is part of the reason why the game has been so highly sought after. You would think that puzzle games had lost their appeal but it appears as if they are more popular than they have ever been.


     


    There is also a prize to any user that is somehow able to complete every level of the popular and challenging game. This has not been at this time, but you can expect someone to eventually break through all 60 levels to claim their price.


    iPhone App “The Heist”


    The game has been released by the popular game development company called TapTapTap that has released a number of other popular apps. One of their most recent apps that they released is the Camera+ iPhone 4 unlocked app, which is currently available for just $0.99 through the App Store. As of right now the app is the number one paid app overall, which is quite an impressive feat considering how popular some games like Angry Birds have become in the app store. TapTapTap is a company that prides themselves on the quality of the apps that they offer and will likely continue to release highly popular apps moving forward.

  • Can you imagine your car being completely compatible with your mobile provider to deliver you updates regarding the charging of your electric car right to your mobile device. This week, AT&T and Ford announced that they have put together a deal that will allow for wireless connectivity to be built directly into to the Focus Electric model that Ford is releasing.



    The deal will allow Ford to connect to AT&T for their MyFord Mobile app. This app will be able to let you know where your car is at, and exactly how much it has charged thus far. It will also give you a good idea regarding how much battery life you have left when you are not around your car.


     


    The app also helps you to schedule charging, setup notifications, and even has compatibility with other apps including MapQuest. All of the data is shared from the car to the smart device through the connection that is provided with AT&T.


     


    So far the app will work with Android, BlackBerry and iOS device such as iphone 4 unlocked. The company has not made any announcements about extending the compatibility to other platforms, but even if the pap does not work with your smart device, you can still use the web interface that is provided by Ford.


     


    A press release was released by both companies that explains in great detail exactly how this will work and what users can expect to get out of the new deal between Ford and AT&T. This could just be the first step in a larger process of connecting your car to your mobile carrier and device that could simplify many aspects of your life in the future. MyFord Mobile is available on the Ford website. It will be interesting to see where things head from here.

  • Would you believe us if we told you that an unlocked iPhone 4 could survive a 1,000 foot fall out of a plane? While thousands are probably upset because their device broke when it fell out of their lap onto the floor as they stood up, the story is true. A US Air Force Combat Controller named Ron Walker took his story to the media after taking a number of armed forces individuals with him to do a jump from a plane.


     


    He said that he looked out the door to find landmarks on the ground below to help him get the plane into the right position for the jump, when the flap that held his phone broke open, and his iPhone 4 flew out of his pocket. The plane was moving more than 150 miles per hour at the time. He watched as the phone fell and made its way all the way to the ground, and he assumed that the phone was probably going to be lost forever, but was curious to see what condition it was in after such a long drop.


    When he got to the ground, he told the story to some colleagues who installed the Find My Phone app. Within minutes they had located the phone. It was still active, much to their surprise. They followed it in vehicles and were able to find it in a wooded area not far from where they were.


     


    The iPhone 4 unlocked did not have any significant damage, and to their surprise, was in perfect working order. It was something that they never expected. He quickly made his way online and sent his story to a number of mobile websites that quickly published it. As you might have guessed, these results are not typical and no one would recommend throwing your phone out of a moving plane to see if it survives. The fact that it still worked was crazy enough, but the lack of significant damage was the defining part of the story.

  • The system for iOS notifications has never been heralded by the media. Apple’s unlocked iphone 4 maintains that the system is the way it is for a reason, and they do not want their users bombarded with notifications from applications that they have downloaded and not knowing how to turn the notifications off.



    However, a new app from Peter Hajas called MobileNotifier proves that not every notification has to be as intrusive as people have believed. The new application will provide users with an easily accessible notification tray, which will allow users to take a look at the notifications that have been send their way throughout the day. The idea behind the app is that it provides non intrusive notifications for applications that you want to receive notifications for, but do not want to be  interupted or have the phone make a noise when the notifications are delivered.


     


    Hopefully Apple is working on a similar solution for iOS 5, but for now Mobile Notifier is definitely the best available option for individuals that are looking for non-intrusive notifications. Apple has not publicly addressed the idea of non-intrusive notifications or including the technology in future updates, but that certainly would be something that a majority of their users would be interested in.



    In order to install Mobile Notifier, you will first have to jailbreak your phone because the application is not currently available in the Apple store. The reviews for the app have been raving so far, so there is a chance that in the future it could be included in the iphone 4 unlocked apps store, but not if apple is ever planning on implementing the technology themselves. Apple has been known to shun applications that capitalize on technology that they themselves are looking into expanding toward. It will be interesting to see how Apple responds to these claims if the app gains a lot of popularity.

  • Paypal just updated their iPhone app to include several new handy features.  The biggest change to the app with this current upgrade is the ability to “bump” payments via paypal using the technologies developed by Bump Technologies.  Bump Technologies is famous for their contact and photo sharing app that transfers files when two iPhone users running the app bump their phones together.  This bump triggers an accelerometer action that will move the contents of one phone over to the other.  Now users who are both running the Paypal app can transfer money between their paypal accounts in the same fashion.



    Also included in the update is the ability for paypal users to send money requests to contacts in their iPhone address book.  Paypal users can now also initiate withdrawals to their bank accounts via the iPhone app which can save them a lot of time by not requiring them to sign onto a computer.  This is probably the best addition that was included in the current upgrade.  Being able to withdrawal funds from my paypal account while on the go with the iPhone is sure to be a great convenience.


    It sounds as if Paypal was busy making some much needed upgrades to their iPhone app.  This current upgrade has addressed several of the issues that I had with the app especially the ability to withdrawal funds directly to my bank account.  This will be very handy when I am on the go and receiving payments to my Paypal account.
