I don't even know what I believe any more...
This one is currently $9.99
I'm quite enjoying draw something, shoot me a PM if anyone wants a game.
Do you have to buy in-game currency to play? It looked interesting, but I don't like pay-money-to-buy-money games.
No, you get coins for success, can use those to buy perks
I see. There's a freemium and a paid version. I missed that before.
Got the free one. Doesn't use game center?!? Wants a Facebook or email account? Bleh. Deleted.
How about Ticket to Ride? I've got that?
Make a fake gmail account just for games.
Here's a link to a new stylus in development by Ten1. They are the makers of the Pogo stylus.
What they have cooking is a Bluetooth stylus that talks to the iPad and has pressure sensitivity. If this becomes real, it could be the ticket. Since I use the Wacom tablet to draw on, this would be a great addition to the iPad. I would love to try this out for my artwork.
It's not the privacy, it's the "friction".
Game launches, I'm eager to play, and the very first thing I see is ...'How to you want to login.. this annoying way or that annoying way?' Needless friction is added, when GameCenter is already set up and needing no effort.
So I quit and delete, and look at the 36 other games I've got
I can kinda see that. I have the same gripe about DRM systems (ie this bullshit of having to have a Pottermore account to download a copy of HP for Kindle is the ultimate in bullshitty bullshit), but I think this is a bit different. These are social apps that are not local to one device. There is no way for someone not on an iDevice to have a game center account nor do I want everyone to have to use GC, I think making Apple the center of all social games would be a terrifically bad idea.
That may be true. I don't care. It's a nuisance and there are *so* many other games I could play, or forums to chat on , that I immediately move on. It's like using iPhone instead of Android. I want easy. Logins blocking access to a game is not easy.
It's not rational. And I might not have this attitude tomorrow. But today, small points of annoyance in games get me to move along.
I hate people who can draw this well =)
The thing is he draws those, one person sees it, then it's gone forever!
My head hurt from buzzword biz-speak overload and had to give up on the article. Do they have something more than a stylus with a felt-tip pen in it?
I didn't get it either! Didn't want to make the time to watch the video as a result.
Its VERY different, not just a pen, watch the video.
I didn't even realized there was a video there. It was lost in the morass of biz-jargon and inscrutable visio graphics
* Maybe the Android Stylus guys were right?
* It's got a dinglehopper that has to be plugged into the iPad
* Laggy response
* 1.5 lbs of glass and aluminum has got to be a lot less comfortable to hold and scribble on than a pad of paper.
* What's the software? Can you get to your notes next year on the iPad 4?
A lot of obvious problems. But...I've been interested in the merger of engineering notebook and computer for about 15 years. This has been a chronic annoyance to me. This sort of device could move us toward solving those problems. But it's all moot for me. I commute by time machine to 1995 every day for work. My industry has a barely concealed hatred of computers and networks, so forget about wireless devices for another decade or three.
