(SNAPPshot is a daily blog-like news piece about the mobile gaming industry. A “snapshot” of the past 24 hours if you will. It’s basically an excuse for Noen to ramble on about anything and everything that has to do with nothing.)
Goooood afternoon SNAPP Family!! I figured I’d wait a little to publish today’s SNAPPshot in the hopes of some actual news popping up. It was a pretty slow weekend for the mobile gaming industry.
I know the big piece of news this morning is the article the Wall Street Journal published saying that Apple is indeed scheduling an event of September 12th. I don’t think anything has been confirmed by Apple themselves, but it sounds about right regardless. This is usually the time Apple reveals all their new hardware. This year, they are expected to reveal the iPhone 7S a d 7S Plus (of course), a third generation Apple Watch with LTE, and possibly the iPhone 8? This year marks 10 years for the iPhone, so everyone is expecting something special. I know there’s talks of a 5.8 inch OLED screen iPhone this year. Also, there are talks of dual cameras. I guess we’ll see on the 12th. I’m due for an upgrade, so I’ll be getting at least SOMETHING to review this fall.
We did have a few updates that released though.
Wheelie Racing got a brand new level simply called, “Mountain”. I’m still playing this game off and on. It’s grindy, but fun.
Drive Ahead Sports received 3 new levels and 4 new challenges. I still prefer the original Drive Ahead game, but the more this one gets updated, the more I’m starting to like it.
The biggest update in my opinion is that Jazz Smash got a new ROCK MODE and ENDLESS MODE! I’m really glad to see this game get some update love. Like i said in my SNAPP Review, it’s a great game, but felt like it needed a little something more. With the new endless mode, I can see a new SNAPP Challenge in the future!!
Alright. That’s your “SNAPPshot” of the weekend. I’m sure things will start picking up soon. I’ve noticed that there are a handful of new releases on the App Store this morning. So, things will start getting busy here soon.
Stay safe all the people out in Texas! To everyone else, keep on swiping……..
