But rather than reading about it, you honestly need to see incredibly fun app in action. Jump down to see I Am T-Pain in all its Auto Tune glory.
i.TV version 2.0 [App Store, Free] was released this week with some incredibly compelling new features.

In this latest release, i.TV now sports a significantly updated user interface along with a nice performance increase. Likely the most talked about feature will be its new remote capability which allows it to control any network-based device with the proper integration. TiVo is the first to introduce a soft remote for i.TV, although other manufacturers are welcome to add support for their devices. Jump down for a quick 2.0 intro video and screenshots!

Anyone who's ever attended a major music festival knows how tough it is to keep track of all the bands you want to see. Thankfully for iPhone users, the Lollapalooza guys have come out with their own free app to help you get the most out of this year's lineup. The Lollapalooza app [App Store] lets you see each day's lineup, create a schedule of bands to see, and even look at a map to see where everything is. If you've already signed up on the site, you can sign in on the app and continue tweaking your schedule on the fly. Best of all, the lineup is stored in the app in case service dies during the festival. I'll likely be headed to Lollapalooza, so let me know in the comments if you plan on going!

We haven't had a chance to try it out for ourselves, but from what we've seen $0.99 seems like a steal. Check out the video below!
Ever since we figured out how to talk, our parents have been telling us that it would be best if we didn't interact with the odds-and-ends of society out on the streets, but the creators of Omegle have come to tell you to break that rule. Immediately. Omegle is really as simple as chatting gets. You, anonymous Stranger, hop online and talk to another user. It's really as simple as that. The application connects you to anyone on the site and other iPhone or iPod Touch users, and it's your choice whether you want to reveal more information about yourself.
One of our favorite iPhone publishers, Chillingo, recently sent us a preview of an upcoming game from Mountain Sheep called Minigore. Many of you may have already heard of it, but it's just too good to leave that to chance. Minigore is a third-person shooter which puts you in control of John Gore. The objective is to defend John from the "Furries" with his machine gun and other weapons.
Today Polar Bear Farm released Tweet Push [App Store], an application that pushes new tweets to your iPhone or iPod touch. Right now when new direct messages or mentions come in, Tweet Push will alert you with the message "You have new tweets!" The cool thing is that Tweet Push works along side your favorite Twitter app to display the tweets. After selecting which app you'd like to use (it must be installed), tapping "View" will bring you to the selected app! In a few days, Polar Bear Farm plans to roll out a management page which will let you receive all tweets from your timeline (not just mentions and DMs), change how often your tweets are checked, customize the notification sound, and preview the text from your last received tweet.
