Mix: Million download apps, iPhone 3GS reporting, XtremeMac

Two iPhone developers are touting a million downloads of their respective apps, with one becoming the first paid iPhone application to reach a million downloads. Freeverse has announced that its Flick Fishing game has become the first paid application to reach the million download milestone, with the one millionth copy being sold over the weekend. In addition, nearly 10% of users have made in-app purchases of a new fishing location and new fish since the feature came online last week. Online movie ticketing service Fandango has also announced that its application for the iPhone and iPod touch has been downloaded one million times since its launch on March 13.

A pair of TV reporters—Kris Reyes from Citytv in Toronto and Gio Benitez from CBS 4 in Miami—both shot reports of the iPhone 3GS launch using an iPhone 3GS. Reyes’ piece can be seen here, while Benitez’ segment is available from CBS 4’s video library.

XtremeMac has announced several new cases for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The company’s Tuffwrap line of silicone cases is being expanded to include the two-tone Tuffwrap Accent and laser-etched Tuffwrap Tatu, while the Microshield line of low-profile plastic cases gains an Accent model with an ergonomic rubber border, and a Tatu model with textured sides and custom-designed artwork. All four new cases will include a screen protector and viewing stand, and will begin arriving in mid-July for prices ranging from $20-$30.

You know, it’s funny, ExtremeMac “announcing” several new cases for the new iPhone. I’d take that news with a HUGE grain of salt, as they’ve “announced” several products over a year ago that are still apparently “coming soon”. I guess these just announced products will get here in a couple more years. What a LAME excuse for a company.

Smule’s last official statement on the matter was from March and touted 700K downloads of Ocarina; in a recent interview (June 16), Smule CEO Jeff Smith said Ocarina was “approaching” a million downloads, but nothing has been announced yet.

Picked up a case today @ Staples. Very impressed. I had just purchased my second Incase and return it cause the Tuffwrap felt nice to touch.  The Tuffwrap feels more like leather than silicon.
