This is what … ALL THINGS D … had to say:
Is taking pictures of your friends on your phone, tagging their names and uploading them just too darn hard? Now there’s a free helper app for that, called Klik, which launches out of testing today on the iPhone.
Using facial recognition, Klik can identify people even before a photo is taken — if you hold up your phone to take a picture of someone, Klik will guess who it is by hovering that person’s first name over the person’s head. If the app doesn’t get it right, it will give you its top choices and you can teach it to improve. Then Klik helps users add share the tagged photos on Facebook, Twitter, email and its own public social network.

As mentioned in a … Prior Post … we did this week, enjoy FREE Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLBTV and more this weekend on Xbox is not just a rumor, it’s a fact. While you’d usually need a Gold membership and a subscription to app services, Microsoft is changing the rules for just one weekend. Starting tonight and lasting until Monday, April 23, 2012, anyone with an Xbox 360 and an Internet connection can access Xbox Live Gold’s entertainment apps, free of charge. Furthermore, the Netflix, Hulu Plus, MLBTV, and Epix apps will be waiving subscription fees during this time.
The Xbox 360 has been trying to pitch itself as more of a multimedia machine than a dedicated gaming console for a while now, and this seems like a logical step to whet consumers’ appetites for media consumption. Microsoft has unlocked 21 services ranging from Dailymotion to ESPN to UFC. While most of the apps are for video content (including Vudu, SyFy, and VEVO), some are music services (last.fm and iHeartRadio).
Aside from the four apps mentioned above, regular subscription fees still apply for the others, especially Verizon and Xfinity TV, which require users to be existing cable subscribers with those companies. On the other hand, many of the other services are free to begin with, save for the Gold membership, so there should be plenty of content to play around with over the course of four days. Be aware that some of the “free” services will be offering trial subscriptions only for new members, so be sure to read that fine print. This offer applies specifically to the U.S., but Europe will be getting a similar deal this weekend, too.
Quick: Someone fire up the Fireworks App. Apple announced early this morning – via its website – that its App Store has officially hit the 25 billion app download mark.
A billion thanks. 25 times over,” reads an announcement on the site. “The App Store has reached 25 billion downloads. Thanks for getting us there.
As for which lucky App Store downloader won the big prize for tapping “install,” Apple is asking interested parties to visit the official “25 billion app countdown” site at a later date to see who will be taking home the $10,000 App Store gift card. Apple will undoubtedly detail which app was the 25 billionth download at that time as well, which could lead to a bit of a boost for the lucky developer.

“Run Forrest! Run!” Er- should that be Indie?! What happens when you cross Indiana Jones & Forrest Gump? You get Temple Run, that’s what!
Possibly one of the most fun and addictive apps for iPhone! The objective is simple, RUN! In fact you don’t even need to hold down any button to do so! You start off running as Guy Dangerous, trying to NOT be eaten by a pack of wild monkeys. This game uses swiping motions, swipe up to jump, down to slide and of course left or right to choose your path. You also use a tilting motion to make your character run from one side of the path to the other. Collect coins and power-ups to increase your overall score and to buy certain perks or unlock bonuses and other characters in the online store. This game also makes it easy to tweet your high scores so you can tell your friends to “shove it!” when you beat their scores!
I highly recommend this app for iPhone users… But if you don’t want to take my word for it… THE GAME IS FREE, PEOPLE!!!!
According to a recently-posted job listing, Microsoft is looking to port its Xbox LIVE gaming portal to iOS and other platforms. Although iOS recently received a native Xbox LIVE app, the gameplay portion has remained a WP7-only feature.
The Redmond company has been extremely active in the App Store over the last few months, releasing the aforementioned LIVE app, the popular Kinectimals game, and a SkyDrive client. And it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down anytime soon…
From the job posting:
“Xbox LIVE Mobile team is looking for a passionate and experienced developer to join us in bringing Xbox LIVE entertainment experiences to various platforms. As the team inside IEB (Interactive entertainment Business) dedicated to mobile experiences, we work closely with the console software team and Xbox LIVE services to bring the latest and greatest gaming and entertainment experience to mobile platforms including Windows Phone, iOS, and other mobile platforms.”
