When Apple came up with the iPhone, it was considered to be a revolution on the mobile phone industry. Like most Apple products, it created hysteria throughout users and it is probably the only mobile phone that has a fan club. But how has the iPhone influenced the whole mobile industry?
Despite all its flaws and disadvantages, we must admit that the Apple device is a cool gadget, especially if we think about entertainment. The multitouch interface along with the movement sensor can transform a common game in a delightful experience. The big 3.5 inches TFT screen is a great advantage that makes mobile gaming look a lot better.
But probably the most interesting feature the iPhone has to offer is the total tactile control, directly on that big screen. Imagine that you can control everything without pushing any buttons. Some game developers believe that this can be the revolution mobile gaming needs, so they started working on titles that are capable of taking full advantage of this remarkable feature. A lot of methods were tried in order to revitalize the gaming industry, but changing the interface and the way people control their actions was a difficult thing to do. Now, all this is here so we only have to wait for the new games and see how users react to this change. Pretty sure, there will be a lot of difficulties for the start, but, as time will pass, tactile gaming will get better and better and, as many predict, will become the future of this industry.
The iPhone interface allows virtually any idea to be implemented and developers are going to let their imagination work and create revolutionary games that are probably going to give an impulse to the rest of the industry, becoming only the first step in the new wave of mobile gaming.
