Aye, already checked them out. Don't fancy anything on today's list. I was thinking about Asphalt 7, but its had so many poor reviews for the SG2, I'll give it a miss, and give my balls a good scratch instead.
They must have rubbed their bellies when Square put Final Fantasy 3 out for £11. At 350,000 downloads, thats over a million quid...like they need the money. How much are those fuckers making from internet advertising? I think I read somewhere their 2010 revenue was 30 BILLION dollars.
So that's £2,695,000 to Square Enix, £1,155,000 to Google. Sounds like an equitable arrangement.
Square develop it, Google distribute it.
Just been reading the comments for Shark Dash and Color & Draw. Glad I didn't get them now as it seems there are notifications and in-app purchases that they don't tell you about when you're buying the app in the first place.
I've got World of Goo though.
A new batch out. The only one that appeals in this lot is Order & Chaos, but according to the reviews its laggy, freezes when you receive a text, and has push notifications. Shame. Only bought one so far in the sale: Paper Camera, which is fecking excellent fun.
Not necessarily talking about the sale, but some of the apps out there are kinda pointless. If not utterly stupid.
There's an app about a pet poo. You feed it different food items. That's it. There's one which turns your phone into a name badge. There's one which just says "is it Christmas?" with a simple "Yes" or "No" underneath it. How about a virtual candle app?
The BBC's iPlayer app is shockingly poor. I've had to freeze it, its so bad. They've not bothered updating it since Feb. How many programmers / app developpers do the BBC 'employ'? Loads, right? If you've got an iphone, yep. Android to the BBC is like being handed a plate of dog poo laced with ebola & lassa fever.
TV Catchup doesn't have iplayer, but just been watching a bit of Top Gear on it. The app's ok, a bit too basic. Gave iplayer another go, yes it works, but the sound quality's a bit pants, and the video is too pixellated for my liking. Guess I'll just watch it at home. Battery won't last long anyway if you're watching TV on your phone for an hour or more, and unless you have 4G or WIFI or something like that, you're not going to get a mindblowing signal.
