New versions of old board games use your Apple iPhone or iPad as part of the game
keep track of each player's money. In September. Battleship will be zAPPed with special ship pieces that are recognized and tracked by an Apple iPad when placed on the screen. And we can't even begin to imagine what special effects will be on the tablet when a player's Battleship is sunk.
Who knows how far this trend could go? Imagine a zAPPed version of Mystery Fun Date, Mouse Trap or Strat-O-Matic Baseball. Any game that requires dice, split cards or a spinner can be modernized by incorporating the Apple iPhone or Apple iPad into the game play.

No kidding. But you can definitely tell that Apple is fighting hard to get people to buy their devices! I wonder what Google will do? They've done a lot of work on the Market to stay up to par let's see what's next!!!!

i'd actually say they've done less, but the result is more.
its just so much easier to develop for iOS. there are really only two devices running mostly on the same version of the OS.
with android there are just so many different options. every app i download says that it doesn work on this device or that device. and users vote the apps down b/c they dont work on every device. im sure this stuff will come to android, but it will take some time.

android just needs to have some restrictions on their devices.
**** They should set 3 different screens resoulutions and thats it.
**** They need to limit the processors and ram
