Technology is the word for me in the last weeks. After the Kindle 3, I got myself the iPhone 4. It’s a vast advancement from my Nokia “smart phone”. I LOVE it and I’m never going back. But there IS one problem. I’m getting the sneaking suspicion that my iPhone is slowly killing me. Namely, Supermarket Mania and Unblock Me.
There is just something so incredibly ADDICTIVE about them that I’ve wasted more time then I care to admit playing with them in the last week! They are just so well made. And there isn’t just one game, but MANY of such games in the App Store i.e. Sally’s Spa.
I woke up this morning and the first thing I did was complete 10 Unblock Me puzzles- after which I got myself a splitting headache all day. I think it is because I spend too much energy focusing on that tiny screen. Please help me stop!!!!!
My only other complaint is that the App Store seems to have trouble recognizing my credit card information. I read that it is apparently a really common error these days because of too much traffic. Anyone else having this trouble?
I have an iphone 4 and love it! Also I have the iPad which you would love because it is also like a Kindle. I download all my books into the iPad, as well as games, and many more! You are not the only addicter with the iphone, I am constantly on words for friends lol and other Apps.
I must admit, I myself love those time-management games as well. They can be addictive!
Oooh, I really like unblock me! Not such a fan of the task management type games though.
If you’re having trouble getting addicted to iPod games, then for the love of god, don’t start playing Plants v Zombies. You’ll never blink again!
To be totally honest I don’t really play many games on my mobile but occasionally I do to distract myself!
You have a great blog!
Love this post, I for one am standing resolutely against joining the iPhone bandwagon, although my blackberry is just killing me.
Saw this article on NYMag, and it seems to be stirring up some controversy. Want to weigh in?
Personally I think it’s quite fun, but is it wearable? Hmmm….
