So like everyone else I’ve joined the bandwagon of the mobile game “Draw Something”. My first intial thought was “cool, a drawing game!”. One of my friends from NY posted some pics of it on her Facebook & I had to try it! After playing it though my excitement for it soon deminished. I’m not the best illustrator in the world but I hold my own. I found out the game is more fun if you really aren’t that good in drawing, Lol. Most of the time I’m spending days of guessing what the hell someone drew while it takes them 2 seconds to guess mine. So I mainly just pass. I’m not sure if I’m alone in feeling like this as I’m close to deleting the game. But hey, after passing 50 million downloads & being bought out by Zynga for $180 million I guess it doesn’t matter at this point…

See the difference? Lol Gotta Love Lebron’s hairline!

The dawn of the mobile/digital artist is in full swing! As a graphic designer who utilizes different mediums to execute designs, mobile apps for graphic designers are a life saver. But picking the right app for you can be a tedious one though. I’ve compiled a list of my 3 favorite apps so far when I work on my iPad 2. Keep in mind the best way to see what is best for you is to try it!

Adobe PS Touch

PS Touch by far is my favorite photo editing app. I constantly use Photoshop CS5 on my laptop for the majority of my works so having it on my iPad 2 only makes sense. The app really easy to use so beginners shouldn’t have any troubles jumping right in. My biggest gripe about the app is moving layers. When repositioning layers you have to select a different tab with limited options so it because a bit of trial & error. But I’ve created some basic works with it so far so it has fairly good results. I love how Adobe has intergrated Creative Cloud so you can pull psd’s that you can upload to the service. But overall the main tools you use in the full version of Photoshop are there & at your disposal.

As you can see pretty much all of the traditional aspects of the full version are there. I tried to import a psd file that had a custom filter I created but the filter didn’t show up. But I can’t really complain when I have the basics of an app I use for most of my graphic work with me on the go! Out of the 3 apps I’ll be blogging about this one is a must!

It’s seeming like yesterday the days of a “snappy” jailbreak of the latest iOS software were upon us. With Apple’s launch on October 12th of the awesome, in my opinion, iOS5 software left people dazzled! But the jailbreak community pondered when the jailbreak would arrive? Including me. Still. Currently we have three DIFFERENT jailbreakers working to crack iOS5; iPhone-Dev, Chronic-Dev, AND NOW coming from a former member of the Chronic-Dev team, @pod2g.

I personally upgraded my own Apple gadgets to enjoy iOS5. But that’s only made the wait of an untethered jailbreak a humbling one to say the least. ModMyi has shown proof from @MuscleNerd that it IS possible:

pod2g’s tweet ensures what iPhone-Dev & Chronic-Dev have said, it’s possible. I can only imagine what all these jailbreakers are going through & seeing with working to release the untethered iOS5 jailbreak. But until then, we wait. And when, or should I say, IF Siri is ported iOS 5 could REALLY be mind blowing on your latest iDevice! The day I wake up, check Jailbreak.me, & perform a jailbreak on my iPad 2 will be a geat one indeed!
