iPhone: Kingdom Conquest

I can’t help but notice AdMob heavily advertising this game called Kingdom Conquest recently across most mobile sites that I come across on my iPhone. So I decided to download it and give it a try. Kingdom Conquest is apparently developed by SEGA and it’s a free BETA from the 8th August 2010 to 30th September 2010. Not sure if they plan to charge after that. It’s a Massive Multiplayer Online type game which requires internet connection to play. If I can recall correctly, there’s 3 different classes to choose from :- Mage, Swordsman and Warrior. Check out the trailer:-

My New Toy Has Arrived

My new iPad has arrived from Singapore today. Guess I have everything I need to start iOS development. Malaysia currently does not officially sell iPad yet but it should be arriving at our shores pretty soon. Still running the older iOS 3.2.2 on the iPad, I’ll have to wait till November for the iOS 4.2 official release for it.

iPhone App Market Already Crashed?

According to Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz, the iPhone app market “has already crashed”. Apple recently declared that App Store developers recently made $1 billion in revenues for themselves. Yet Hubertz said that this rich sum would be spread thin across the 250,000 apps on the marketplace. He added “This market has already crashed. You cannot sell your game for 99 cents and expect a return.”. He does have a point there and the App Store isn’t exactly big budget game producer friendly like experienced by Capcom and Bioware but Apple built the ecosystem so that any indie developer who spends a bit of time and effort could potentially churn out a profit.

IMHO, the market hasn’t crashed and it’s probably going to go through an evolution to the next stage where mobile apps need to be unique and a proper marketing strategy for it to succeed.

HOW TO: Make Your Web Applications Look Like Native Apps

With more and more smartphones being sold than ever before, we find developers creating more mobile optimized sites and apps. Native applications have been the rock-pillar for smartphones but the problem with it is that you have to code specifically for the targeted platform using their own language i.e. Objective-C for iOS and Java for Android. That makes creating a web app behaving like a native app that can run on any devices very appealing. One of the solution to the problem is by using HTML5. Coding something from the ground-up to make your web app look like a native app is going to be tedious. That’s where a framework is normally used nowadays and Sencha Touch is one of them.

Touted as the first html5 mobile framework, it allows you to develop web apps that look and feel native on Apple iOS and Google Android touchscreen devices. Sencha Touch combines a resolution-independent UI library, touch event management, support for geolocation and offline access, and special CSS and CSS3 capabilities.

You can check out one of their Touch Solitaire game demo on a HTML5 browser but this app is optimized for the iPad.
