    I would love to try out the new gyro, but I can't seem to find the app they used in the keynote.

    Is it in the app store?

    I am not 100% sure but I don't think it is. I think it was just a demo app written for that presentation/keynote but I could be wrong.

    yes it was just a demo app they created for the appstore... though i do think jenga has a nice shot to make a great app!

    There isn't a single app that utilizes the new power, graphical capability, speed, resolution, and gyroscope of the iPhone 4. I hope we don't have to wait too long before a good one comes out.

    I thought the iPhone 4 dev kit has been available for some time? You would think that at least ONE developer would be using all of these resources by now. If there was only one app on the app store that used all the features I mentioned, it would sell like crazy!!!

    As it stands, there are only two games I use that have been updated with the retina display. Flight Control which looks good but I don't really play it much and Real Racing which looks good but has a low polygon count. I want to see what the iPhone 4 is truly capable of!

    And when it comes to classic apps, I would really like to play Fieldrunners in higher res as well as Plants Vs. Zombies, Robot Unicorn, Doodle Jump, Zen Bound, GeoDefense... and others. You would think in the least that some of these top 20 games would be updated with higher res by now.

    I'm not sure if you mean all those features in one app, but there are apps that take advantage of the features that are appropriate to that app.

    try Eliminate:Gun Range. It uses gyroscope,looks like a decent entry.

    It is in the app store! It is called gyroblox.

    that game doesn't take advantage of the gryo yet.

    although i can see it being updated to do so

    gyroblox doesnt use the real gyroscope; just the accelerometer and compass.

    It's my understanding real racing uses the gyro. I noticed a HUGE improvement in control versus playing it on my 3gs!
