[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIi95eAFRcI]YouTube - Tumbleroo Demo: Tumblr for the iPad[/ame]
With over 6 million people choosing to do their blogging on Tumblr these days, an iPad Tumblr app is long overdue, so step forward Tumbleroo!
The app features a full dashboard, complete with text, link, chat, question, photo, audio and video post support, and a built-in browser. The post creation system is very easy to use, as you can see from the demonstration video above. Users can “like” or “re-blog” a post that catches their eye directly from their dashboard with just one tap, and can also re-blog posts and add a comment while keeping full attribution to the original post.
More advanced features include the ability to choose which blog you want to post to, and at what time you want to post to it, which is useful for those people with multiple Tumblr blogs. Other features include the ability to create private posts, and to choose to send a post to Twitter.
Tumbleroo is available now from the iPad App Store for £2.99/$4.99

Boy Genius Report has broken some very interesting news today. The Verizon iPhone / Verizon iPad rumor train has picked up alot of steam lately. The most recent development comes from a block of source code in iOS 4 which queries the device to see if it's a CDMA iPhone or iPad 2. If it is either, it will auto-activate which allows it to bypass the need for iTunes. Code very similar to this has appeared in the past just before a major iPhone / iDevice release and then is removed right before launch. It simplifies the field testing since you can use the device without activating it.
BGR also reported that the platform code for the CDMA iPhone is N92AP and the CDMA iPad is N81AP.
This is some pretty solid information that we will see a Verizon iPhone and Verizon iPad in the future.
Don't forget, we have a sister site dedicated to the iPhone at the following URL: iPhone 4 Forum

Copywriters Cooper Murphy Webb have just published a survey on the iPad’s consumer usage, in which they polled 1034 UK iPad owners to find out how they like to use the device. Among other things, the poll revealed that consumers most often use their device in the home, with 27% of respondents saying that they never take their iPad with them when they leave the house, 35% saying they rarely take it with them, 22% saying they sometimes take it, and only 11% saying they mostly take it. I think a lot of us would probably relate to that, it’s such an expensive piece of kit that you do feel a little nervous taking it out of the house.
Interestingly, the survey also found that 24% of those polled used their iPad as their primary entertainment device, with only 19% saying that the TV was their primary entertainment device. Laptop/computer came out top on that one with 33%. Check it out below, it’s an interesting and nicely presented survey.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSkN9EZ0TDU]YouTube - Ocean Blue (iPad) v2.0.0 [HD][/ame]
This looks like a really beautiful app for those who don’t have the time, inclination or space to bother with the upkeep of a real aquarium. It just looks so incredibly soothing and relaxing and it features the whole ocean, not just one small aquarium! The app is designed to give you the experience of actually diving and swimming in the ocean, with the development team actually going diving in the Philippines to really get that authentic feel and carefully studying all the fish for added accuracy and realism.
Ocean Blue has recently had an update with the addition of popular fish such as the Clownfish, Blue tang and Naso Tang (the “Finding Nemo” fish!), all of them captured in gorgeous 3D. The new update enables you to tap the screen and summon shoals of Nemos and Blue tangs and then keep them there by holding the screen, or double tap to scatter them. You can also click on the different fish for a closer look, and take snaps of them for your diving log books. Another thing I really like about it is that you can use it as a screensaver. Just beautiful.
You can download the updated version of Ocean Blue from the app store for $4.99.

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hog9cijGOEM]YouTube - Elite Home Theater Seating iPad Chair in HD.mov[/ame]
Great story on CNET’s Crave blog today about a bespoke iPad chair (or the Elite Home Theater Seating Chair to give it its full title) which has been specially designed to give you ergonomically hands-free access to your iPad. All you need to do to get yourself in the optimum comfy position to enjoy your iPad to its fullest is fit the iPad-specific holder into the chair’s cup holder slot, which has been specially adapted. Your iPad can then be moved around a full 360 degrees, as well as being tilted vertically or horizontally.
If you’re starting to think that you need one of these in your life, better make sure you’ve got a spare $2,495, as that’s what the “standard” version will set you back. If you want to start talking silly money, then forking over $5,995 will get you the deluxe version, which comes in a choice of colors and leather grains, along with an adjustable headrest, amp, and motion transducers that make you feel the sounds that are coming from your iPad. That’s what Crave says anyway, I’m not sure if I believe that last bit!

Square Enix’s Chaos Rings RPG has been released today for the iPad worldwide. The game has already been a massive hit on iPhone/iPod touch with Square Enix’s loyal fanbase, since its release in April, hitting the Number 1 spot in 15 countries. Now iPad owners will get to enjoy the game in gorgeous 1024x768 HD, for £9.49/$15.99.
Strangely, it looks like the much-improved graphics are the only enhancement added for the iPad version, although with the iPhone version already pushing that device’s hardware to the limit, it’s possible that not much more needed to be tweaked for the iPad.
For Square Enix fans, Chaos Rings is another welcome addition to the legendary developer’s roster of classic RPGs. By all accounts it’s a game that Final Fantasy fans will love, with a story that’s set around a battle tournament called Arca Arena, where teams of two compete for victory and eternal life. Characters gain levels and earn experience points from defeating their foes to upgrade their team’s combo skills, so that they can launch even more devastating attacks. The unique story unfolds based on the pairing of characters that the players choose. By experiencing the storylines of each pairing, the true mystery of Arca Arena will be revealed.
The gameplay revolves around a turn-based battle system, where players are given the choice between “solo” moves, where they can enter commands separately, or “pair” moves, where they can execute actions as a powerful team. Defeating enemy monsters allows players to obtain specific DNA information called “gene”, which players can then equip to learn the monster’s magic and special attack moves. Sounds like the sort of absorbing RPG fans can really sink their teeth into, and you know that Square Enix fans will be heading straight to the iPad app store to check it out!
