iOS 4.1 Will Have Multiplayer Restrictions in Game Center





gcrestrictions

As you may know, iOS4 has new features that allow parents or even companies to limit an access to the system for their children or employees respectively.  Currently an access to Safari, YouTube, camera controls, location services and iTunes content including music, TV, movies, software and podcasts (that satisfy given rating threshold) may be blocked.

But the latest developer builds of iOS 4.1, which in turn must appear in a couple of months, include new restrictions related to the Game Center. The latter will allow players to find other players or teams for group play and track their game scores and in-game achievements, but new restrictions will make it possible for parents to prohibit their children from playing against any other user without supervision.

Screenshots that reveal these options are posted above.

Publishing Your iTunes Library to Facebook - There's An App For That



musicwithme-app

Today mobile media company ParkVu introduced an interesting Facebook app called "Music WithMe", which allows publishing your music library from iTunes to Facebook. After publishing the tracks it contains may be shared, commented on, liked and discussed by your friends.

To use it properly you should also install a desktop app, which is now available only for Windows (Mac will be supported soon).  When the setup will be over the app will show your tracks in its Facebook application here. Note, that your friends also must install this app in order to comment on and like your tracks (and without it the app looks pretty useless).

New rumors on next-gen iPod touch



iPodtouch

John Lewis from Electricpig.co.uk received new rumors from his suppliers about next-gen iPod touch. Here is a list of innovations that will be likely added to the new device:

  • FaceTime support;
  • 5-megapixel camera;
  • front-facing camera;
  • LED flash;
  • Ability to capture video in HD;
  • support for iOS4;
  • gyroscope (to be precisely, he said the device "will also offer the same movement sensors as the iPhone 4").

As we see, new iPod touch will be pretty much the same as the new iPhone (but without phone functions, of course). The new device will be probably presented on the next Apple's music event in September.

First music video filmed by iPhone 4



So now, when the iPhone 4 camera is proven to be good enough for shooting high-quality short films, Marty Martin and Steve Failows introduce first iPhone 4 music video. It is a clip for a song of Steve Failows, (also known as flakjakt) who wrote it only in two days. Two more days were needed to create a concept.

“Our main goal, however, was simply to make a good music video, no matter what the camera”.

The creators also told that there were troubles with aperture, shutter speed control and lightning, so it was obvious that there will not be enough abilities of iMovie. So the footage was worked out in Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro.

“Although the result was a bit rushed and rough, we ended up embracing the look and think that it helps translate emotion well onscreen”.

Enjoy!
