This weeks app is an app I find very handy when your on the go, and you need your Mac in your pocket. This weeks app is Remote Tap by ReadPixel. You can see your Mac screen from anywhere. Just set up your iPhone (or iPod Touch) to the wifi connection that your Mac is on and it will automatically get all the settings. This app is one of my favorite apps on my phone because you get all the features that you would if you were sitting at your Mac. You can do Photoshop, listen to iTunes or surf the web. One feature this app does lack, however, is the ability to stream video. I’ve tried this many times, but it just never works. If it works for you, either leave a comment or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is one of the greatest apps in the app store, so if you are a Mac/iPhone owner and you don’t have it… get it now! I know this is a short one… but this app will mostly be explained in the screen shots.

This weeks app is Doodle Jump. Doodle Jump is a game where you jump from platform to platform, trying to get as high as you can, while avoiding obstacles
such as black holes, UFOs and monsters. It’s actually a lot more fun than it sounds. It gets VERY addicting. You can get “power-ups” or “boosts” such as jet packs, springs that boost your jump, helicopter hats, trampolines or the newest one, spring shoes. The spring shoes are like the springs, but they stay with you for 5 jumps. Currently, the high score for this game is 1,311,248. My high score is only 51,445. I could spend all day trying to beat that score, but it gets frustrating after a while. Another great feature is that you can see all of your stats and scores, and the high scores daily, weekly or of all time. You can also connect it to Facebook and see your friends scores. Doodle Jump has also connected with two other games, Pocket God (featured in App Of The Week #1) , and The Creeps!. Characters from both of these apps have made appearances in Doodle Jump, and the Doodler has been in them. You can see screenshots of all of the games below. In Pocket God, the Doodler tries to shoot you as you do the Ooga Jump. I don’t have The Creeps! yet, but I will try it soon to see what the Doodler does. In Doodle Jump, the Creeps replace the monsters that kill you if you touch them while you are jumping. You can activate this feature by entering your name as “creeps”. If you enter your name as any of the pygmies from PG, you can jump as one! Like I said about Pocket God, this app is a must buy!

If you can’t tell, Bandew444’s is not a self- hosted blog. Right now I am working on making it one. We are very busy right now and may not be getting as many posts up as we’d like, but B4 and hopefully The Jeary will be and look a lot better in about a month. App of the Week #2 will be coming next week. Thanks for visiting!

This is our new thing here at B4, App Of The Week. Every Friday we will bring you one our favorite iPhone/iPod Touch apps. This week, we decided that our favorite app is: Pocket God, by Bolt Creative. Their latest episode, episode 28, is titled, “Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy”. For those of you who are not familiar with Pocket God, you get your own little islanders to play with and do what you want with. You can strike them with lightning, drown them or blow them up. You control the weather, the volcano, the fishies, the sun, the moon and even the sharks with laser beams attached to their heads. There are four different “worlds” to explore. Go to Dinosaur Island, The Graveyard, Palm Tree Island or underwater. There are mini games that you can play in Pocket God, also. There is Ooga Jump, Coconut Bouncing and Pygmy Bowling. Thees all happen while you’re playing, instead of touching a button and waiting for a different game to load. The Bolt Creative team comes out with new Pocket God episodes as often as they can to keep everything new and exciting. With each update comes new features. For Example, when they came out with the new episode, Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy, they added a spider in the graveyard that you fight with a spear. This is one of the best apps in the app store, and you’ll never get bored… it is a must buy.

The Chargers were in Pittsburgh today, and had a great second half offensively. The first half was absolutely terrible. No offense, no defense… nothing. It all added up to 21 points in the first half. Take away one of those TD’s and I think the Chargers would’ve won. My player of the game: Antonio Gates. He had a big game, 9 receptions for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers had an awesome comeback in the second half, scoring their only 28 points. They just dug themselves to deep of a hole. Next week the Chargers have a bye, and the Steelers are facing Detroit (1-3-0, 4th in the AFC North). So, after this week:
Chargers (2-2, 2nd in AFC West)
Steelers (2-2, 3rd in AFC North)
Upset of Week 4:
Denver Broncos: 17 Dallas Cowboys: 10
That game was a HUGE surprise. I was hearing all about Dallas all week, and how phony Denver 3-0 start is. I’m not saying that the Broncos, who lead the AFC West at 4-0, deserve it… but they are there and that’s all that matters now. They beat Cincinnati on a fluke play, but whatever.
They have a tough schedule coming up. If they can go through the Patriots, the Chargers, the Ravens and the Steelers with 2 or less losses they might actually be a contender. I don’t see it happening, though. My prediction is that they will have MAX, 1 win. New England, Baltimore and Pittsburgh will dominate them on defense and out play them on offense. If they are not beat up after their game with the Patriots, then Denver and my Chargers are going to have a close game on their hands. However, if the Broncos go out there tired and beat up from the previous week, the Chargers can put it away early.
