    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'...
  • 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...
  • International calls just got cheaper thanks to “Nimbuzz Out”
    by Mike

    We'll start off by saying that if you make international phone calls often and merely use your phone providers international solutions, you're wasting money and missing out. With that said, I suppose you now might be asking what solution or answer I have. One affordable choice is Nimbuzz Out. Nimbuzz is no stranger to helping people communicate. Back in my BlackBerry days I used Nimbuzz's multi-IM app and came away rather impressed. It was a robust multi-chat app that at the time a couple y...
  • 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]
    by Mike
    Posted November 7th, 2009 at 9:58 pm
    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?
    by Mike

    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…
    by Mike
    Posted November 6th, 2009 at 10:43 am
    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...
  • iblipped brings carrier coverage mapping to end users, for free
    by Mike
    Posted November 5th, 2009 at 12:54 pm
    Do you really want to know how good/bad a particular carriers' coverage is in your neck of the woods? You could always rely on those overly general carrier maps or if you're really gullible, the individual carrier reps who over promise the networks they work for. Moving on, what if we end users could relay real coverage info back to some "mother ship" ala Google Maps with their real time traffic info? Well guess what? There is just an app for just that occasion. Dubbed "iBlipped", this ...
  • N64 games soon coming to iPhone 3GS
    by Mike
    Posted November 3rd, 2009 at 9:55 am
    iPhone jailbreakers who enjoy some retro gaming on the go by way of NES, SNES, PSOne, etc. emulators have something else to look forward to. From the same developer who created the GBA4iPhone emulator, Zodttd, a new creation is coming on the near horizon. This one has me particularly interested for one reason: GoldenEye. If that didn't trip your mental memory unit, I'll just lay it out there -- N64 emulation is coming so an iPhone 3GS near you...soon! Because of the inherent hardware require...
  • 300 apps and counting for Palm Pre App Catalog.
    by Mike
    Posted November 1st, 2009 at 2:10 pm
    Apple's App Store may be 100,000+ apps strong, but it isn't the only mobile app store in town. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Palm users have reason to celebrate as their app selection has official crossed the 300 app mark. At first celebrating such a puny number may seem ridiculous and laughable. Though remember, it isn't necessarily the quantity but the quality that matters. Of Apple's 100,000+ apps, I can guarantee that maybe 5% of those apps are actually worth trying once let al...
  • 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 ...
  • Spotify coming to UK BlackBerries in early 2010?
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 1:50 pm
    Music streamers and UK dwellers rejoice. If you're a BlackBerry user who has been scowling in envy at your fellow iPhone toting friends with their fancy pants Spotify iPhone app, take comfort in knowing that your own version is coming soon. Very soon. Early 2010 to be exact if mocoNews is correct. While the Spotify app for iPhone is an awesome app, not everyone wants an iPhone. Let's also not forget that the BlackBerry version, as well as every other version of Spotify will stream in the ba...
