SGN, developers of iGolf, iBowl, and iBaseball, recently released their latest games: iBasketball and iFun. iBasketball takes the same approach as their other sports apps. You are given 5 shots from 5 different locations around the net, and you use the accelerometer to try and sink as many as possible. iFun takes a whole new approach however. Building off the iGolf game, iFun allows you to hook your iPhone to your computer wirelessly. All you have to do is sign up for an account at SGN’s website, pick the course and hole you want to play and then login from your iPhone. Your phone is used to control your swing and the computer screen shows the hole, your progress, and other information like wind speed.
