bitly, one of the most popular link shortening services on the web (25 billion links have been saved since 2008) has not only radically redesigned its web interface, but also introduced some new features that aims at better organizing your URLs. Links are now known as “bitmarks” (think of them as bookmarks for anything interesting you come across on the web) and “bundles”, which are essentially folders which you can assign bitmarks to. They can then be made either private or public, and easily shared with friends and family. Coinciding with the changes, the bitly iPhone app was released today, making it more convenient to keep all those saved links close at hand when on-the-go. With the ability to read your bitmarks offline, bitly can now be used as a read it later tool as well, much like Pocket or Instapaper. bitly for the iPhone is a free download and available now on the App Store.

After seeing numerous mockups of what the iPhone 5 might look like, 9to5mac has today posted some high quality images of what supposedly will be the next generation iPhone. Shown in both black and white, the back panel is said to be made from metal, which is in line with a report previously posted by iLounge. Other noticeable changes include the earphone jack being moved to the bottom left corner of the device, a redesigned speaker grill, a new and much smaller dock connector, and a new opening between the camera lens and LED flash.

Every once in a while there is a week with so many solid new games released that it's hard for me to decide which ones to write about. This was one of those weeks. So, instead of recapping some of my entries in the intro, I'm going to mention a few that didn't quite make my list. Tennis fans should check out Virtua Tennis Challenge, the first installment of SEGA's hit franchise to make its way onto iOS devices. You'll compete against 50 different computer players on 18 courts across the globe, or you can challenge your friends via WiFi and Bluetooth. Chillingo fans were treated to 3 new games this week, but the one I'm most excited about is Air Mail. You'd never suspect that delivering packages would be so adventurous, but the brief teaser video shows you travelling to exotic locations and getting shot at repeatedly. Gamers that love side scrollers might be interested in Dragon Evolution. If the simple fact that you get to play a dragon isn't enough, how about 80+ missions, 36 skills and the ability to customize said dragon?

It seems like so many in the puzzle genre revolve around physics based gameplay that it's nice once in a while to load up a game like BrainJewel. After playing this offering from TribePlay for a little bit you suddenly realize how nice it is to simply fling stuff at other stuff and get points for it. Don't get me wrong – I'm not saying that physics games aren't fun, nor am I claiming that this isn't a good game, because neither statement would be true. I'm just suggesting that if you're going to tackle a title like BrainJewel, you might want to have a game around that won’t require nearly as many brain cells when you need to take a break every once in a while.
