GTA Released on iPhone and iPod Touch

Grand Theft Auto, iPhone, iPod touch
Grand Theft Auto. Do I really need to say anything else? I have a good news for all you GTA fans out there, Grand Theft Auto : Chinatown Wars is now available on iPhone or iPod touch.

It is almost like the original GTA from Nintendo DS and Sony PSP with a top-down perspective of the first two GTA games. And although the game costs a steep $9.99, it's still cheaper than what is was on the DS or PSP, where it debuted at $34.99 and $39.99, respectively. The touchscreen controls work well and the level of graphical quality lands between that of the Nintendo DS and PSP versions.

So far that game has a pretty positive reception, it has reveived 40 ratings and an average of 4.5 stars. App Store user Puese gave it five stars and said: “The polish on this is over the top. We have come a long way from only having snake on your phone as a game.” However, marcosrdz gave it only one star, saying that it crashes a few seconds after displaying the terms of service screen. Some players say that it lacks a few minor features of the DS version — for example, pedestrian speech has been removed, presumably to reduce the size of the download.

That looks pretty neat for an iPhone game, but I'd still stick with DS versions if I absolutely needed to play GTA on the go (And I don't know why I would).

Hi. For those of you who jailbreak your iphone/ipod touch (same software anyway), have any of you found a better way to open photos on it? I don't like being restricted to small resolution photos - would prefer to upload them to it via iBrickr, yet how would I open these photos if I were to do so?Any good apps for doing that? Thanks in advance.

This looks good, and it'll get me through those long train journeys. I'll probably end up missing my stop now. Any excuse for more GTA action!
