Reckless Racing 2, Polarbit’s popular miniature racer for the iPhone and iPad, has just gone free on the App Store. The sequel to the addictive top-down racing game features 18 cars (from dirt buggies to supercars), tuning options for maximum performance, dirt and tarmac tracks, and gorgeous shader based visuals. The game even supports online multiplayer over 3G/Wifi, just so you can go head-to-head with friends and strangers from around the globe. A recent update introduced an all new Drift game mode, as well as 2 new cars custom built for drifting. This freebie deal will last just 24 hours (starting 6pm EST), so if you’re a racing fan, you know what to do.

Apple has announced the special September 12 event by way of invites to members of the press. As can be seen from invitation above, there’s a tagline “It’s almost here”, along with the number 12 and a huge shadow of ’5′. Needless to say, this all but confirms that the iPhone 5 will officially be unveiled that day. So does this mean that the phone will be called iPhone 5 and not the ‘new iPhone’, as was the case with the most recent iPad? Judging by the image alone, it’s entirely possible that Apple will keep the numbering system with each new iPhone release.
The event will take place on Sept 12 at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts at 10:00 am. Let the count down begin.

There were certainly enough new arrivals to keep even the most discerning gamer busy on their iOS devices this week. The biggest surprise to me was Final Fantasy Dimensions, the newest offering from Square Enix. I don't know what rock I've been living under, but I had no idea this game was coming to iOS devices, and you can even try the prologue for free. If you're more into puzzle games Illusion Labs has resurfaced with their latest concept called Blast-A-Way. This 3D brain teaser has plenty of explosions, cute robots and even more adorable mischief makers. If you just want something that proves you're never too old to have fun, check out Granny Smith from No Can Win. This quirky racer has you trying to recover apples before a rascally thief, and oh the places you'll go.

Audiophiles are already aware of Etymotic, the company that single-handedly invented the world of inner earphones. Their ER4 series revolutionised portable audio before you were born. I can think of no other name to which my silly bicycle hat is tipped to more often. God bless you Etymotic. Well, their rather well-known app collaboration with Essensy, Awareness, has finally made it to Android, too. Awareness allows you to hear what’s around you no matter that you’re plugged into some of the best noise-isolating earphones in the world. Etymotic have always been about hearing safety. Awareness uses the microphones in their hf3 and mc3 headsets to filter in the important stuff: announcements, safety alerts, etc., so that you can enjoy your music in safety.
Awareness has been available on iOS for a while, but it’s great to see Android getting some love (especially since I’ve become an iBasso DX100 owner). Evidently, you don’t have to be plugged into 4,1 Ice Cream Sandwich to use the functionality, either. (God knows you are damned lucky if you can get 4,1 working on your system.) Now, I don’t have either earphone to test Awareness in iOS or Android, but damn it, it doesn’t matter. Someone will. Enjoy your music in safety, people.
Press stuff after the jump

Last month, Musica Acoustics had me photograph their new MyST 1866, a portable DAC unit from MyCroft that Dimitri was very excited about. The lad is almost always lost for words about cool new things, so I patted him on the shoulder and took the unit to my office. I shot the thing. I turned it on and off. I listened to it. Then I emailed Dimitri and threatened a review.
