iPod Touch Apps: "Mind Dojo" Brain Twister Game

In the coming weeks we're going to exhibit more iPod Touch apps and games like "Mind Dojo" Mind Dojo is a cool little web based brain twister game that you can use to sharpen our wits when you have a little time to kill. The best part of the game for me was the fact that you can compare your final score with other player's online. This should hook the competitive folks out there. Check out our exclusive video below and point your iPod Touch web browser to to check out the game.

iPod Touch Apps: Extend the Battery Life of iPod Touch and iPhone

Here at iPod Touch Apps we are all about getting the most from our iPod Touch. I was talking to a friend of mine today who happens to be an Apple technician and he mentioned a little quirk that should help iPod Touch/iPhone owners with battery life issues. In a nutshell:

Charge your iPod Touch through the wall/socket adapter and not thru your USB ports! I know what you are going to say.. "but the meter on my iPod says the battery is full even when I charge it through my USB port". However, this may not be true! You see the charge from the USB port is actually much weaker than from the wall, however the iPod Touch software calculates the amount of time it has been plugged in, and hence thinks it is "fully charged", when in fact it may not really be charged to the battery's full capacity potential. Basically, a "full green bar" charge reading is only accurate if you charged from your wall socket.

Hope this little tidbit helps. it has helped me.

iPod Touch Microphone add-on now available

An iPod Touch Microphone is now available here to make your iPod Touch function as a VoIP phone... the Touchmods guys are now taking pre-orders on a customer friendly, sleeker version of a microphone add on which they are producing for the public. If you order now, your iPod Touch mic should be shipped by mid February according to their website.

Mid-February is also roughly the time that Apple will be releasing the SDK (Software Development Kit) so that 3rd party programmers can start making approved applications for the Touch. I expect that there will be many interesting programs released that will take advantage of an iPod touch with a microphone attachment. Also, keep in mind all those iPhone specific applications that will now work on a "mic enabled" iPod Touch.

In any case, the mic will cost you $50... these guys are a small outfit, so order at your own risk. But if $50 isn't too steep for you to be the first one with a souped up iPod Touch on the block.. then have at it!

If you get the mic, come back and post here, let us know what you think!
