Road Trip Pictures

This President’s Day long weekend, my family drove to San Francisco to attend my youngest brother’s housewarming party. Whenever I take long trips like this, I usually just put myself to sleep. But not this time. Why?

Thanks to my Iphone. Remember the article I published before about my love for my hands-me-down Iphone? I discussed in that article about the many apps that are installed on it but are never used? If not for this trip, I wouldn’t  know how awesome Photogene app is.

After dousing off from sleep, I decided to take some pictures along the way. Then I started using the Photogene app to enhance the pictures. I was really impressed with the results. I am definitely more in love with my Iphone.

Here are some of the before and after pictures…

I Love my Iphone

Are you one of the 90 million people who own an Iphone? Yeah, that’s right. That’s the number of people who had bought an Iphone since its launch in 2007. Although what I have now is still a hands-me-down 3GS from my son (who now owns a 4G), I’m still very happy about it. It already has everything I need with all the apps my son had downloaded on it.

Among my favorites are calendar, photos, camera, video recorder, weather, mail, ipod, radio and safari. It has lots of gaming apps although I only brain-stimulant games like Boggle, Fishtropolis, Textropolis and TanZen. Other games like FarmVille, Angry Birds and TapTap don’t appeal to a mature woman like me. (I don’t really want to divulge my age but my choices are giving it away, ha ha ha).

14 yr old Creator of #1 Game App

Bubble Ball, a physics puzzle game, knocked the smash hit game Angry Birds out of its top spot on the Apple App Store’s list of most popular free apps.

While Angry Birds was created by a 17-person company based in Finland, Bubble Ball is the work of 14-year-old Robert Nay, an eighth grader living in Spanish Fork, Utah. Nay decided to develop an iPhone app after being encouraged by one of his friends. So, while other kids are outside or playing video games, Nay spends his time at the Spanish Fork library researching and developing video game phone apps. He is now the CEO of Nay Games.

The “Bubble Ball” app was downloaded more than 2 million times in the last two weeks and had a total of 400,000 downloads Jan. 13. According to ABC News, if Nay had sold the app for $1 a download, he could have brought in at least $2 million in revenue if it hadn’t been free.

This first app was free, but Nay is developing another app that will sell for at least 90 cents a download. As to the new game he’s developing, Nay says it’s a secret for now.
