Yup!! My wife and I still play from time to time. It's pretty instantaneous too.

The WWF crashes disappear, if you get the pay-app; funny how that works.

For those of you that enjoyed Tiny Tower, the same company just came out with a new game, Pocket Planes. Very addicting and fun to play.

Sling players for iPad and iPhone half off today. $15 is still high, especially considering they don't have a universal version so you need to buy it twice for iPhone AND iPad, but the App is actually really good if you have a sling box.

My wife downloaded a good one, A scorekeeper app. When we play card games like 500 she keeps score on it, when we play scrabble she pulls it out and keeps score on it. Not something you use everyday but it is nice to have.

A few times a month, I activate my work Exchange account on my iPhone.

Is there a way to (otherwise) not have those contacts show up in my Gmail auto-fill on the phone?

After trying it a couple times, I have to give the "Sleep Cycle" app a wholehearted endorsement. It uses the accelerometer in the iPhone to detect movements during your night of sleep, and you place it under the thin bedsheet in the very corner of your bed so a) you don't knock it off the bed, and b) it can still detect movement. Rather than set a specific time to wake up, you say you want to wake up by a certain time, and the soothing alarm goes off when it detects that you are in the lightest part of your sleep cycle. For example, this morning I said I wanted to wake up by 6:15, and it woke me at 5:57.

It's obviously not an exact science, but the last couple mornings have been the best wakeups I've had in a long time. When you wake up, you can see a graph of your overnight sleep, going from REM to mid-sleep to light sleep and back again. I was skeptical, but I'm extremely impressed. I didn't have my 4s on the charger and it only used about 20% of the battery overnight.

There's something similar to Sleep Cycle that I picked up at Best Buy last year.

The prices are a little high, but if you do some digging around you can get it for under $50.
