    iPhone Mini

    A low-priced iPhone makes a lot of sense, Morgan Stanley says, and it even could hit the market this summer.
    Katy Huberty, an analyst with the banking firm, noted that after her meetings with Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer, she’s convinced that innovation remains a top priority for the Cupertino, Calif., electronics giant. She also believes that Apple will increase cash return to shareholders and expand carriers, distribution, and possibly price points to drive iPhone growth.
    She noted that a lower priced iPhone makes sense for several reasons:
    “iPad Mini is expanding Apple’s customer base with 50 [percent] of purchases in China/Brazil representing new customers to the ecosystem.”
    “Chinese consumers show a desire to purchase the latest version of iPhone (instead of discounted older generations).”
    “iPhone 4 demand surprised to the upside in the December quarter.”

    Temple Run : Brave – iPhone/iPad & Android App Review

    Among the several fun games which have changed the name of true addictive games, Temple Run stands in the top. It is a huge hit in the App Store and Android Store. It is a simple endless running game with a few monsters chasing you. It is one of the best selling Mobile Application in the App Store and Android Market.

    Temple Run : Brave is based on Disney/Pixar’s new movie Brave. Princess Merida, the hero of the film, runs, slides, jumps and ducks for she has to outrun a giant bear which is chasing her.

    The only difference in Temple Run : Brave is that Imangi have introduced a new gameplay mechanic: archery. As Merida runs, she’ll , at some times, engage in a mini-game that requires players to tap on the left and right of their screen to hit targets as they appear. Hit them all and you’ll get a score. That’s it!

    In short it is also an endless runner game with some difference and new additions. The game is as addictive as the previous version. As it is an endless running game, you can’t expect a story here!

    Obviously there is some difference in graphical display of the game where instead of old monsters some resemblance with the movie is provided in which a bear who is already injured with some of the swords and arrows on its body is chasing Merida. All you need to do is to run with same enthusiasm (with which you ran in Temple Run!) with a different view but same controls which includes, jumping, tilting for coins collection and making your way as far as possible.

    There is only Merida who is from the movie. So she will be the only player with whom you can play. Also remember that some of the visuals are much improved and can take you in a real time fantacy world.

    Consider Temple Run : Brave as an update of Old Temple Run with an addition of Archery game play. The game comes with a price of $0.99 which includes 2500 coins bonus. It is the top most game on the Apple App Store and Android Market. Many users have rated it with 5 stars. It is a universal app for both iPhone and iPad with same price. There are some In App purchases of coins which are required for power ups during the game to increase your run distance.

    Temple Run: Brave may look like nothing more than a mere updated version of the original, but the inclusion of archery and upgraded graphics make it worth the effort.
