A new piece of software could transform the iPhone into a much more adept gaming device.
The new software is a tool called Onyx Online and is free. Onyx Online was developed by Steve Demeter, the same developer who created the popular and profitable Trism for the iPhone. Game makers and developers who choose to embed Onyx in their creation get a host of social networking features already added. Just a few of which include leaderboards, achievements and forums. What’s more is that iPhone owners playing Onyx Online embedded games would be able to view each other’s profiles, compare scores and see what games everyone else is playing. Onyx Online allows players to find each other and even challenge each other to duels! Demeter explains:

VoIPover3G (that’s Voice Over IP Over 3G) is what I think the hottest application that came out this weekend, and let me tell you right now, like all hot apps, it is only available in Cydia – that should give you yet another reason to jailbreak if you still haven’t done so.
So what does this bad boy do? This MobileSubstrate library can trick any application into thinking that it is on wifi even though it is on a cellular data connection. There are a lot of possible uses for that, but for me the main use is being able to use VoIP programs like Fring over 3G. So no more hack necessary to use Fring over Edge or 3G.
By default, VoIPover3G is configured to to trick only the App Store and Fring but you can edit the setting, but in order to do so, you’ll have to know your way around SSH…
As mentioned above, VoIPover3G isavailable in Cydia. If you instal it, don’t look for the icon on your springboard as it doesn’t have an icon. Configuration settings are explained in the “more info” link of the app.

If your remember Dope Wars back in the day, your are mos definitely familiar with this one.If not well than , DrugLords is a location-based massively multiplayer online game about drug trafficking. Using GPS inside your iPhone, you become a drug dealer in the criminal underworld, which exists parallel to your everyday life.
The idea is simple. Moving between real-world locations, you trade various drugs: buy low and sell high. You find good deals and make profit by moving the stuff around.
