Yet another game has ditched the once-standard $0.99 price to switch to a model of a free app with paid in-app purchases for revenue. This time it's Cyber Circuit [App Store, Free] from Complex Games, a shooter claiming to be inspired by the multi-level concept of Dante's Inferno. Instead of paying $0.99 for the entire app, you can now get the first six levels of the game for free, with the option to pay another $1.99 later on to get the other 24 levels. Video after the break.

Now that AT&T has removed the complimentary 200 SMS messages from the iPhone 3G data plan, I'm betting that some are looking for a cheaper alternative to sending texts. Luckily, AIM for iPhone supports sending text messages via the AIM service, which is totally free. To use this method, sign in with your AIM account on an iPhone. When you're all logged in, tap the "new message" icon. Where you would normally specify a username, enter a mobile number instead. Be sure to add '+1' and the area code before, though.
