Mystery Manor - my new iPad game addiction

I am recently addicted to this game that I can't stop wandering around the manor exploring different rooms!

Here's the description:

A dreadful Event took place in the Manor and completely ruined the ordinary life of its inhabitants. Their deeply loved master Mister X has suddenly disappeared leaving nothing but a strange message. Only you can break the secret of the Mystery Manor. Jump into the crazy hidden objects action! 

Mystery Manor is a mystery-style hidden objects game. In a mystic mansion, inhabited by strange but lovely people, spooky monsters and funny ghosts you’ll have to find hidden objects, unlock new rooms and complete quests. Mystery Manor is a never-ending game. New quests, rooms, characters are being added on a regular basis. Unlike all other Hidden Objects genre games, you will never finish the game. Despite of the great gameplay and premium graphics quality, the game is absolutely free!

Some great features:
- Explore through the atmosphere of mystery
- Captivating detective story line
- Beautiful hand-drawn graphics
- A wide variety of objects to search and puzzles to solve
- Search for the objects in different modes: words, shadow-figures, phenomena, and Zodiac modes.
- Regular updates with new characters, rooms, and quests 
- Never-ending mystic gameplay
- Help your friends and ask for their help in return
- Find yourself in the world of pure madness!
- Absolutely FREE

Getting iOS5 from Windows PC

I had seen a lot of complaints ever since iOS5 becomes available. I had finally got around to update my iTunes and when I am almost done, there came an error message saying "There is a problem with this windows installer package.  A program required for this install to complete could not be run,  Contact your support personnel or package vendor." I was like, what??!!

Apparently I am not alone and after seeking for help from others, including forum users etc, I had now installed the new iTunes successfully.

Here's how I did it:

Backup whatever you think is important to you on your iTunes library, apps purchase etc.

Go to Control Panel and repair the following programs:

1. iTunes
2. QuickTime
3. Apple Software Update
4. Apple Mobile Device Support
5. Bonjour
6. Apple Application Support

Once you have repaired them, uninstall all the programs.

Once everything is uninstalled, download iTunes again and reinstall it. You should have a brand new and well working iTunes available now.

Let me explore with the latest iOS and keep you updated with more findings. :)

OMG... I so have to share this, in case you haven't downloaded the popular messaging app yet...

Here is the link:

iMessage from the new iOS5 maybe too much threat to WhatsApp?

Hurry hurry~ download the popular messaging app and you can now send texts to other smartphone users for free!

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform smartphone messenger currently available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones. The application utilizes push notifications to instantly get messages from friends, colleagues and family. Switch from SMS to exchange messages, pictures, audio notes and video messages with WhatsApp users at no cost.

Facebook for iPad - Finally...

I know I had been very quiet on this blog in the recent months, that's due to a new job, and relocation etc. I will be active again soon....

Facebook for iPad is finally here (an updated version from the initial release). Seems like a long wait after more than 18 months of iPad's initial release.

Sylo Synthesiser for iPad

•• As used by Gorillaz on their album The Fall ••

Sylo Synthesiser allows you to play music, or create sound effects, using sounds you can design yourself. Sylo Synth includes a collection of pre-designed sounds which you can use as they are, tweak them to your heart's desire, or you can make new sounds from scratch.

Build sounds from basic waveforms, or capture them from the world around you using the iPad's built-in microphone. Then, tinker with Sylo Synthesiser's filters and other settings to make a sound all your own.

Sylo Synthesiser features live time-stretching technology based on granular synthesis and a suite of filters:
• Speed up or slow down a recorded sound to use as an instrument
• With a regular wavetable synthesiser, higher-pitched notes are also faster, like chipmunks, and lower-pitched notes are also slower, as though they are moving through treacle
• But enable Sylo's "Sync Speed" feature, and lower or higher-pitched notes still play back at the same speed, keeping them in sync with each other
• Fiddle with the speed control even while you're playing notes: Slow, stop or even rewind the sound in the middle of notes — without changing the pitch
• Granular synthesis allows you to create instruments or effects from a recording, that do not sound like the original, yet retain its realistic, natural sound
• FX units: Frequency modulation, ring modulation, echo/delay, distortion, and a low-pass filter with resonance control
