Well I have been focusing on Interactive Buddy mobile version for the past couple of days, mostly since I am eager to get it to Apple for review so that hopefully it'll be released by the holidays.

Today I added a new interaction ability--basketballs! With two fingers you can toss up to eight basketballs on the stage. (Any more than eight and the old ones will start disappearing.) You can then grab them and toss them around if you want, or of course throw them at the buddy.

Hopefully by the end of this week I will have the minigames implemented (I have ideas for two of them so far... if I come up with a third I will add it as well). Then I just need to finish the "ambient" conversation content and it should be ready for App Store submission.

The Flash version is pretty much done, I just need to hopefully add a few more items, create the mobile version popup ad, and finish polishing. Hopefully I'll be able to work on it (and complete it) while the mobile version is under review.

Once the mobile version is accepted (or, probably, a little before that) I'll start sending out emails to potential sponsors for the Flash version. Hopefully I'll get a good offer quickly and I'll set a date to release both the Flash version and mobile version simultaneously. At least that's the plan!

And the promised pic from the mobile version:

Can't wait for it!

When I meant testing, I meant it for the older versions of iPod, so like to see if it ran nicely under 3rd Gen ipods. Of course, thats when it comes out.

well like i said before, if you need any testing on an iPhone 4 (since the iPod Touch 4G has different resolution than the iPhone) I'm willing to help or test anything.

iPod 4th gen actually has same resolution as iPhone 4 (640x960 "retina display")

Also I actually could probably benefit from some testers but unfortunately it's a complicated process to allow that. You'd have to pay $99 to register as an Apple developer, request a bunch of digital certificates so that iTunes would let you upload the app outside of the App Store, etc.

Thanks for the offer though, for sure!

Well I heard that Apple said that the iPod 4th Gen had the same resolution as the iPhone but it was also tested and was stated that it was "nearly retina display". Anywho, I am an Apple developer but I'm just not in the Standard Program, but I have access to stuff like the SDK and stuff like that.
