    If there was ever a perfect example of hell freezing over, this is it. After months and months of harsh criticisms stemming from the god awful review process and absolute lack of any communication, it seems Apple is finally starting to listen to the very people that have catapulted the iPhone to what it is. Starting today, Apple is making steps towards a more transparent app approval process and communication with devs. I wouldn't exactly call it transparent yet, more like opaque. Still, it'...
  • Commodore 64 returns to the App Store!

    Classic gaming fans were no doubt saddened when Apple removed the Commodore 64 app because of some elusive code that allowed end users to enter into BASIC interpreter. Noticing their screw up, the App Store yanked the app. That was a couple months ago when the developers first received word that their app was going to be pulled. They promptly removed the offending code and resubmitted. So why did it take so long? Well, after the last coy little attempt to circumnavigate the App Store polic...
  • iPhone dev throwing in the towel…selling iPhone app business for a cool $100k

    I hate computer programming. Everything about it makes me want to vomit up every organ in my body while swinging over a vat of boiling hot magma. Perhaps that's a bit extreme but you get the point. Coding iPhone apps isn't for everyone. If you're like me and loathe computer programming yet can somehow manage to keep those sudden urges to catapult yourself into space via internal projectiles at bay, iPhone App programming may be just the thing for you. An exploding dev market and user base s...
  • Shazam debuts Premium app, breaks old one.

    Not being able to grab the name of a particular artist or song playing on the radio is frustrating to say the least. The frustration turns to sadness or anger when the song ends and blends into another as the DJ neglects to mention any info on the song you so desire. Sucks, I know. Then there was Shazam. An amazing iPhone app that looked nice, worked well, and was simple to use. Besides simple bug fixes and a small performance boost here and there, Shazam has remained rather unchanged. The...
  • David Guetta iPhone app [Review]

    We originally looked at David Guetta's iPhone app a couple weeks ago. Though at that time I didn't have a copy to officially review. That has obviously changed. After spending a good day playing with the app, I can honestly say that David Guetta has figured out how to make an iPhone app, engaging with his fans, and offering up a compelling product that could even lead to new fans. Creating a reason to spend money on music is something that many content owners somehow fail to grasp. They thi...
  • Apple + Hitler = BFF’s 4eva?

    Seriously Apple, WTF?! You reject dictionary apps because little Johnny might search for a naughty word yet you approve apps such as Baby Shaker. Now you've stooped to the ultimate in absolute stupidity and leaves me wondering where you find these morons that run the App Store approval process. Why the flaming? Do I really need to go into any greater detail on the image above? The ebook above is Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kempf" -- his "bible" if you will, full of his murderous and inhumane po...
  • Opera already has working iPhone browser. Your turn Apple…

    Those enough who either don't want a higher end smartphone or simply can't afford one know that on your mid to lower-end devices web browsing is a chore. Pages render like crap, it takes forever to open a simple link, etc. Many phones as of late are capable of running some form or another of the Opera browser whether it be the free, almost universal Opera Mini to the more desktop-like Opera Mobile variant. Either way, Opera while not quite the reckoning force it would like to be in the deskto...
  • Aneurysm for iPhone/iPod Touch
    by Mike
    Posted October 31st, 2009 at 9:24 am
    No it's not a stroke or play on a stroke. What it is, is a highly addicting game. The concept is simple: navigate your orb around and avoid the growing number of multi-color "hater" orbs coming at it. The developer ties the game in with a theory that the human mind can only track up to 8 things at once. Is it true? I spent some time on dear friend Google and saw varying numbers from 5-20 and so on. I think it's highly subjective and varies form person to person. Science theory aside, the ...

    Within the last several years, blogging has gone from a simple geeky thing enjoyed by tech journalists and gadget nerds to something that many people from all walks of life can partake in. Even more recently, with the explosion of smartphone usage, mobile blogging has started a sort of "rebirth" for the whole blogging scene since you can now take yourself and your blog on the road, expanding possibilities. For iPhone users, there are several blogging apps each with their own pro's and con'...

  • Geolife and PosiMotion announce first turn-by-turn app for iPod Touch
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 5:26 am
    Want to get in on the turn-by-turn hot action but have a lowly iPod Touch? Such issues, you know, not having a device with access to a mobile network were a problem. I mean, a simple media player has only been able to harness GPS via WiFi locations -- something that won't be very helpful if you're traveling further than 200 feet from a router. Looking to further expand the iPod Touches potential, Geolife and PosiMotion have teamed up to announce that the first true turn-by-turn GPS app for ...
  • DJ/Producer David Guetta releases iPhone app.

    David who? Here in the states, this Paris born DJ and music producer may not ring a lot of bells. I have to say that I love sampling music from all of the world on a daily basis. While I haven't sat down and listened to any of David's work, I have at least heard of him in my digital journey. Other notable mentions for David Guetta include producing the Black Eyed Peas hit song "I've Got A Feeling" as well as a lifetime of DJ'ing throught Paris and France. In a move that many more artists sh...
