App Review: Thanksgiving Freedom

App Review: Thanksgiving Freedom

Peter Sandford recently launched his first mobile app using the Corona SDK and it’s just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The game is an 8-Bit side scroller with a retro appeal. You play the game as turkey who is trying to escape his or her Thanksgiving fate by jumping over cornucopias, pilgrim hats, hay bails, and pits. Along the way you collect stars and try not to die. The app is fun and would make a good game for the kiddies on the way to grandma’s house. You can download the .99 cent app in the Apple App Store for both iPhone and iPad.

iPhone 5 Has Diagonal Swipe Glitch May Affect Apps

Are your apps being affected by the iPhone 5 diagonal swipe glitch? It seems that the iPhone 5 is having some issues with repeat swipe actions. The issue seems to be isolated to iPhone 5 as shown in the video below. I’ve tried the same test on my old iPhone 4 running iOS 6 and my new iPhone 5 running iOS 6. As shown in the video, the screen just freezes after several repetitive swipes. I don’t have a 5th generation iPod, so I haven’t been able to test on that device. Have you seen any issues with your apps?
