Bauhaus Archive app brings modernism to the iPhone


It seems right that a cutting-edge design and architectural movement of the past has its own smartphone presence, as is the case with the Bauhaus Archive iPhone app.

According to Dexigner, this is an official app for both iPhone and iPod touch that opens up the Bauhaus archive via the exhibition The Bauhaus Collection: Originals of Classic Modernism. Over 100 images, along with commentary in English or German, some context as to what the Bauhaus movement achieved and some visitor information, should you fancy seeing the real thing in Berlin.

Best of all, it's a free download. Always a good thing.

Free Super 8 vintage film shooting app for iPhone and iPad


It's actually a movie tie-in, but the Super 8 app for the iPhone and iPad is still one of the best apps around. Best of all? It's free too, making it a better proposition than the similar iSupr8 app.

Essentially it turns your mobile phone or tablet into a super 8 film camera, without the film obviously. You shoot at the touch of a button, with the option to switch lenses, throw in filters and add someshake effects.  When you are done, you send it off to be developed (another push of a button), then you can view it in your projector room (on our phone) or export it to a computer / share it with friends.

Seven lens effects in total, plus three animated filters, a scratch and dirt overlay and those shake effects offer real authenticity and as we said - it's absolutely free. Only free for a limited time though, so grab it now.

Atari's Greatest Hits app - 100 classic arcade games for the iPhone and iPad


Vintage gamers rejoice - your spare time is about to be sucked up with arrive of Atari's Greatest Hits for Apple's iPhone and iPad.

Not just one or two games - there are 100 available as part of this release. The app is free to download, but you only get the framework and an introductory game of Pong for that. If you want the rest of the games, you'll have to buy in-app, four packs costing 59p or all 100 cabinet / Atari 2600 games for £8.99. For that, you get the original artwork for each game, plus an authentic cabinet to play in.

Some of the games are Bluetooth-compatible too, so you can play with your mates wirelessly (as long as they've picked up the app too). See over the page for the full list of available games, with the app and games available now from the Apple app store.

CM 1980s Legends football manager game hits the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch


Remember we featured Championship Manager 70s Legends for the iPhone a while back? Well, a new version has just landed, taking things on a decade with CM 1980s Legends.

It's much the same, with a few key changes for the era, which means an authentic database of players from the 80s, loads of genuine news stores and images to give a flavour of the era, different start dates in the decade, an 80s retro interface, the option to tie in the game with Facebook and Twitter plus all the detail you crave - formations, commentary, match day build-up etc. If you start in 1986, there's no European football either, just like the real thing.

Sadly there's no 4th division, so no option to recreate Phil Neal's mighty Bolton team of that decade, although presumably John McGovern's crocks are there from earlier in the decade. if you can live with that (and I'm sure you can), £1.79 is the price at the Apple app store.

iSupr8 app - more Super 8 movie shooting for your iPhone


You might recall the 8mm Vintage Camera app we featured a few weeks back. Well, now there's another operating in similar territory - the iSupr8 app for the iPhone.

It's not a million miles away from the other app in theory- shoot video directly from the app, giving it a film-burn just like Super 8 home movies. Once shot, you can watch your video back, save the videos to your camera roll, email them or add to Facebook. There's also the option to use the iPhone's LED spotlight for shooting in the dark.

A video over the page gives you an idea of how it works. Read the reviews of both apps before you go for one, but if you opt for this, it sells for $1.99 or £1.19.

Championship Manager 70s Legends for the iPhone and iPod touch


In a way, I'm surprised it's taken so long - a football manager game with a retro twist. Which is what you get with Championship Manager 70s Legends.

The title says it all, the long-running football manager sim now lets you manage a team full of 1970s legends - so buying the likes of Billy Bremner, Kevin Keegan, Kenny Dalglish, Pele, Johan Cruyff, and Franz Beckenbauer is just a click away. Not just the players, the rules have changed back to the 70s too, which means the likes of 2 points for a win and 1 substitute only in England.

Choose from seasons 1970/10 through to 1979/80 and various countries, with each season complete with authentic, illustrated news stories from throughout the decade reflecting events as they happened. Available for the iPhone and iPod touch, it sells for £1.79.
