Tomorrow Corporation says it’s also working on an iOS version that’s designed to work with older hardware, so the game will soon be playable on the iPhone 4 and fourth-gen iPod touch models as well. There’s also a Linux version in the plans. I haven’t played much of Little Inferno, but the reviews on it are really great, and it looks like a creepy, yet moving take on consumerism and “play” itself. And, of course, great games are always welcome on the Mac platform.
In a gesture of appreciation, Apple last year increased the iCloud storage of recent Mobile Me buyers upon the company’s switch to iCloud. Now that about a year has passed, that extra storage was set to expire. However, in an email today to a former Mobile Me user, Apple has stated that it will be extending that extra storage for one more year:
When you moved your Mobile Me account to iCloud, we provided you with a complimentary storage upgrade beyond the standard 5GB that comes with an iCloud account to help you with the transition. Originally, this storage upgrade was set to expire on September 30, 2012.
As a thank you to our former Mobile Me members, we will continue to provide you with this complimentary storage upgrade at no charge, for an additional year, until September 30, 2013. No action is required on your part. For complete details, please read this article.
Thank you again for using iCloud,
The extra storage given depends on how much storage the user was paying for with MobileMe – either 10, 20, or 50GB of additional storage.
Screen capture of the email below. Anyone else wishing they had bought MobileMe before iOS 5 was announced?
Twitter user mgleet tipped me off abt Apple appears to have bumped his iCloud storage plan to 25 GBs until the year 2050. Multiple people here at TUAW are seeing the same plan bumps, none of us has upgraded our plans, not to mention paid 38 years in advance.
Apple has been known to offer cloud storage upgrades for free in the past when their online services did not live up to expectations (MobileMe).
To check to see what your storage plan is, go to Settings>iCloud>Account on your iOS device. Free 20GB storage upgrades for previous Mobile Me members are set to expire today, currently a bunch of us are seeing that those plans are now set to expire September 30, 2050.
It is possible this could be a bug on Apple’s end as they transition Mobile Me members down from the 25 GB plan to the 5 GB plan, though it is October 1st in New Zealand and one of our writers there is reporting he is still on the free 25 GB plan, which should have ended at 11:59PM September 30 New Zealand time.
