As promised yesterday, here’s the second in our short-running series on iPhone apps that already take advantage of some of the new, exciting features in iOS 5.
Firemint’s groundbreaking driving sim Real Racing 2 is one of the most decorated titles on the App Store, having been selected as Qi’s #1 game of 2010, crowned Pocket Gamer’s Best Sports / Driving Game 2011, and shortlisted for a Golden Joystick Award 2011.
As a result of all that critical acclaim, Firemint would have been forgiven for parking Real Racing 2 in its virtual garage and leaving it in neutral to enjoy a well-deserved rest.
Not a chance.
Thanks to iOS 5’s AirPlay Mirroring functionality, Real Racing 2 drivers can now stream their qualifying races or championship deciders wirelessly from an iPhone 4S to a HD TV in the front room.
And with Party Play enabled, you and up to three fellow F1 aspirants can screech around Real Racing 2’s circuits in split-screen mode (using an iPhone 4S as host) on the aforementioned high-def television set.
Put your pedal to the metal and head over to the App Store this second to download the souped-up Real Racing 2 on iPhone.
