Well Worth the Wait
The original mobileGuns blew me away; a semi-automatic pistol with crisp audio, beautiful visuals, and great implementation on the iPhone's/iPod's multi-touch features. Each fully mechanical piece of the gun rendered in beautiful 3D works realistically; you empty the clip - there's still one round in the chamber, c**k it - the unused round pops out, the responsive trigger mechanics makes it easy to hold your device in your hand and still make it feel...well..as natural as an onscreen gun is going to get. It's also easy to overlook that the way this app is set up it has the speaker (for iPhone users) facing outwards, unlike other gun sims that have the speaker covered by your palm.
It's sad to see so many people pissed about the update. Yes, it's been a long time coming, but it wasn't the dev's fault; The update got backed up somewhere deep within the bowels of the App Store's HQ, as it needs to be approved before it's uploaded to the servers.
This update was well worth the wait. The new selection of different sized magazines is awesome. Going with a smaller clip you can get ready to reload as your firing the last shot, with a larger clip you can aimlessly shoot as whatever happens to be around. The app is well worth purchasing for these features alone, but with the new mini-Uzi with a selection of firing rates should persuade anyone with an eager trigger finger who overlooked this underrated app for one with a larger selection of weapons. While it's true there are only two guns as of this time the app strives for quality over quantity and does a damn good job at what it does.
I bought both mobileGuns and "i-Gun" and I can honestly say I open up mG fives times more than i-G simply because if I want to shoot at something with my phone to briefly amuse me I want it to be fun and responsive, while I'm not here to review "i-Guns" I feel that their often unresponsive triggers, annoying tilt sensoring, and clunky menus detract from what both apps are trying to do, make a realistic and engaging gun sim.
In short: what mG lacks in quantity is more than made up for in quality. If you've ever pointed your fingers at something and went "Bang!" this is the app for you. With the new update there's no reason not to spend the $.99 on what will amuse you and your friends for hours.
I'm looking forward to the next installment. May I suggest a revolver. I knew "i-Guns" took a stab at it, but their tilt reloading makes it impossible to hand off the device without unloading it. I'm sure a mobileGuns interpretation would be spot on. If you could implement single-round spaced reloading and a spinnable barrel it would be the perfect app for virtual Russian Roulette, giving it multiplayer capabilities. Anyway, just a suggestion. Keep up the phenomenal work.
Two words- aw yeah!!!

Yay! I am just overjoyed the update has finally come. Very good and worth the above 5 stars. And if you don't think it's worth the 99 cents, take a lookey-loo at some other comments around this one. That's right, we all love it, so will you. Now that I have convinced you you need this, this next part is for the programmers/ app designers. Good job guys. This app is so fun Freddie Mercury would sing about it if he was still with us, rest his soul. This next bit is not intended as criticism, but small ideas to help this app be as good possible.
1: make the small buttons in the bottom right fade away after about 5 seconds of not touching that area, just for looking better.
2: let us as the consumer be able to change the color or design/texture of the back ground behind the gun. For example, solid black everything besides the gun, for a fun plus if playing a game with the guns, well you get my drift.
3: I realize it is dificult to update this app, but here are a few guns which would make this so fun.
Walther ppk. James bond's gun, from Connery to Brosnan. It's small so it would fit on screen, and you get how much people would love it just because it is the gun of Bond, James Bond.
Lugar german pistol. I realize it is unfavorable because of the whole ww2 thing, but it is a very original design. The bolt to the trigger, it would fit nicely on screen and what have you.
Knife from Rambo 3. I know it doesn't quite fit as well with my before listed, but on all of the application store there is not a single good knife app. Just imagine, you vs a friend, knife to knife! If you jerk the iPod quickly which activates the swish. Then as the pod slows down or stops, the stab sound activates. Just a thought.
Now then, if you have been able to keep on reading through all of this, good for you. And thank you. Pat yourself on the back. Thanks for listening.

I have used the other gun applications, and this one is the best. While it doesn't have as many guns, that is because the ones they do have are so well done, and I would assume they are going to come out with more in addition to the current two. That being said there are much depth to gun apps if you don't love guns. This one is the best though and if you do like guns get this app.
