iTunes 12.7.0, now Sans App Store

iTunes 12.7.0 Sans App Store.png

From Apple Knowledge Base:

The new iTunes focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks. Apps for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are now exclusively available in the new App Store for iOS. And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and redownload apps—all without a Mac or PC.

In a way, iTunes the Application is becoming less complicated. There are some who uses iTunes to keep a copy of their iOS Apps, but I bet that majority of iPhone and iPad users don’t use iTunes to download iOS Apps.

GOT 7.2?

It is a definitely different Sunday compared to a week ago, but… horse sh………. (go rewatch “Dragonstone” if you need the reference).

…but one thing is the same; Game of Thrones Season 7.

We had productive week and an an interesting Sunday. New builds of beta softwares from a certain “fruit” company are ready for deployment in the next few days, or at least that’s what we were told. In addition to that, we’ve been using Acorn 6 for quite sometimes. Let’s make Acorn 6 as our pick of the week. This is in no way a paid product placement. We actually gave Flying Meat $14.99 minus the App Store fee to unlock Acorn 6. We would pay Flying Meat directly, but the Mac App Store is a more convenient route.

Anyway, back to rewatching Game of Thrones, Season 7 Episode 2, “Stormborn” over and over again.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow


Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow game is officially out on the Ten Year Anniversarry of the release of iPhone original (June 29, 2007 – 2017).

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is developed by TinyCo, a subsidiary of Jam City, which porfolio includes Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. Matt Groening, Futurama (and The Simpsons) creator, penned original story for the game. To celebrate the launch of the game, Groening, David X. Cohen, Billy West and John Dimaggio did a few AMA’s on the “Internet”; here’s one they did on Reddit.

The game itself is part clone of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, some RPG battles and others. By the way, Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff is also a clone of The Simpsons: Tapped Out game. It is somewhat funny since Family Guy had been accused for ripping off The Simpsons, as explained by South Park in Cartoon Wars Part I and Part II.

Apparently going off tangent is way too easy.

Back to the game…

The in-game graphics are faithfully recreated from the series, but some of the animations look a bit off. The music is also faithfully recreated from the series. The game itself is described by one of our colleagues as “laden with In-App-Purchases traps”.  It is only day one with this game, so we will see how far it will go.

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow is available on Android and iOS (alphabetically).
