iOS 9 Beta Update

iOS 9 Public Beta Users Seeing Random Update Notification [Updated]

At about 12 AM today (Sunday), I as well as many other iOS 9 Public Beta users received a system notification stating that a new version of the iOS 9 Beta was available. The message reads: “A new iOS update is now available. Please update from the iOS 9 beta.” The grammar itself is even a little bit odd, especially in the last sentence, unless it’s stating that the official iOS 9 is out now (which I don’t believe it’s coming out for about 1-2 more weeks). Let us know down below in the comments or on Twitter @iTouchAppReview if you’ve received a similar notification. Let’s get to the bottom of this!

Update: If I had to guess, it’s probably an accidental “push notification”/system notification thanks to some intern at Apple. (Just kidding, but it does appear to be some sort of accidental notification). We will keep you updated if/when we find out any more information! Follow us on Twitter @iTouchAppReview for news/updates as we receive it.

Update 2: Some users are suggesting that perhaps this is a developer update and is not available for an OTA update and must be had from the developer site. This could be true (we haven’t verified it), but it wouldn’t make sense for Apple to push out an update like that to all public beta users. So, still, we’re not sure.

Update 3 [9/6/15, 11:45 AM EST]: Still, no official word from Apple on what went wrong/happened. As stated in comments below, if Apple allows this beta to expire before users are presented with an upgrade, it could spell disaster for many iPhones running iOS 9 Beta. At this point, we highly recommend that you back up your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad that’s running iOS 9 Beta. If there is an expiration issue within the next few days, at least you’ll have a recent backup. We’ll be here if we hear more. Drop a comment below telling us your experience so we can see who this is affecting the most.

Update 4 [9/6/15, 4:30 PM EST]: We’ll have to assume this was just a major glitch in Apple’s system. They’ve not announced anything publicly to help users understand what this message was about. We do expect to see an iOS 9 Beta update very soon, though. In fact, with this glitch, it allows us to become even more certain that iOS 9 (full version) will be released on September 9, 2015 at or right after the Apple event.




Dungeon Legends

Dungeon Legends Hits App Store Today

Hey everyone! Tons of new games hit the App Store every Thursday, but today we’ve got a pretty cool action RPG game for you all. This one is called Dungeon Legends and it’s hit the App Store today! Check out the press release below:

Valencia (Spain), September 3rd. Dungeon Legends, the true action RPG game from Codigames, is now available for free in the App Store. The game brings the classic action RPG genre to iOS devices.

Dungeon Legends includes a campaign mode, and a real-time co-op mode. Up to 4 players can play in the same mission via Internet connection. Those who look for a real challenge can enter the Arena and play against other players in PvP battles.

Players can also join clans and access exclusive events. They can fight in the clan wars and become the best clan in the world.

Dungeon Legends gives player the opportunity to become a member of the Dwarfs, who descend into the dungeons for gold and glory. In their adventures, players should train their characters, and improve their stats.

There are different skills to unlock, that can be used in the adventures, and in the PvP modes. The players can configure their own character, choosing the skills they want to use before each battle. The skill selector allows players to adapt their Dwarves to the gameplay they are comfortable with (damage, healer, tank, …). The skills can be configured at any time, so players can test new configurations or they can specialize in a skill branch.

“We have worked hard to bring the action RPG experience that was born in the PC to the new handheld devices, and it has been a true challenge”, Codigames’ CEO Francisco Martínez said. “The team has done a great job and Dungeon Legends is an amazing action RPG experience on mobile”.

– PvP modes

– All the game modes can be played for free

– Ally with your friends to explore the dungeons in the co-op mode

– Chat with other players

– High-resolution graphics.

– Sign in with Game Center to store your game in the cloud.

The Alpacalypse Is Coming

Yup, you read that right. The Alpacalypse is indeed coming. October 1st is the official date the game is set to come out on. Here’s a little bit of information that B-Interaktive has provided:

Do you remember this good old times, when games were just games? No silly in-game currencies. No irritating time limits. Just simple rules, intuitive controls and hard reality.
We do.
We also love alpacas. 
That’s why we’ve combined it all into Alpacalypse – new mobile title we’re working on right now. Alpacalypse is a modern game from the 8 bit era. The times when games were arcade oriented, easy to play but hard to master; when what mattered was your skill not willingness to purchase one of the power-ups.
We called it an APS – Alpaca Perspective Shooter – featuring addictive and dynamic gameplay, beautiful graphics and cool music. Most importantly though it’s a game that’s fair – you won’t find any in-app purchases that’d favor paying customers here.
You’ll find alpacas though. Yes, there are alpacas in this game. It’s a game about an alpaca really. And not just ANY alpaca but Al. Al Pacone, the alpaca.
And boy, he’s pissed right now.
Here’s the trailer!

This looks like it’s going to be an awesome game without a bunch of micro transactions. We’re definitely looking forward to it. Let us know what you think!

Today we’re taking a look at the Flexishield iPhone 6 Case in the Frost White color.We really like this case due to its nearly-clear back, and its light weight. It’s flexible and has a small amount of lay-on-the-table design to it. It looks great on the iPhone 6 and really lets the beauty of the iPhone stay visible. Check out our video review below!
