  • 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 ...
  • Google launching their own, free, mobile map app?

    You don't say? Ridiculously overpriced map apps *cough*...TomTom...*cough*...navigon may soon be getting some competition from the multi-purpose likes of Google. Pointing out that Google already has Google Maps as their own is a rookie mistake. Understandable, though still very rookie. You see, they still license international map data from TeleAtlas while U.S. maps are now handled by Google's own accrued map data. Which by the isn't hard to believe seeing as the last several years have see...
  • 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...
  • Google Analytics iPhone app giving you bad password/username errors? There’s a reason…

    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 3:01 pm
    Frequent users of Google's Analytics iPhone app may have noticed that when trying to log into the app as of late brings up a "bad username or password error". Don't worry. It isn't your fault -- probably. According to the Google Analytics support, there is a known issue with the current version of the app. A fix is in the making however with an update scheduled for October 29th if everything goes according to plan. I've been getting the bad pass/user error for about a week and a half n...
  • Themes coming to BlackBerry App World Novermber 9th?
    by Mike
    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 8:47 am
    App World may be higher priced and not have as many apps as other mobile app stores, but one key feature that can truly set them apart from other app stores currently open. Themes. That's right. Many CrackBerry users find themes a great way to keep their device always feeling fresh and "like new". Besides, who wants to stare at the same layout, wallpaper, and icons all the time? I surely don't. While iPhone users have a snowball's chance in hell from getting official Apple sponsored themes...
  • EyeTV reappears in App Store. “Hidden” 3G streaming still present.
    by Mike
    Posted October 18th, 2009 at 11:45 am
    Has Apple changed paces on their "no 3G streaming apps policy"? The reason I ask is that the EyeTV hidden 3G streaming settings we talked about a couple days ago are still present. This is even after Apple pulled the app originally citing the 3G streaming settings as the sole reason. A quick check by searching for EyeTV (iTunes Link) within US, UK, and German App Stores will lead you to the same 1.0 app that was again, originally pulled with the nefarious 3G streaming. So, we come back t...
  • Ping! the BlackBerry Messenger of iPhone? [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 9th, 2009 at 7:11 am
    Ok folks, say goodbye to having to pay double on cellphone bills. Well, at least if your texting buddies all have iPhones that is. Introducing Ping! (iTunes Link) for iPhone. Ping! is an iPhone-to-iPhone messaging app available in the App Store for $0.99. It operates much like BlackBerry Messenger does for BlackBerry -- letting you message for free between BlackBerry to BlackBerry and in this case, iPhone to iPhone. The way it works is also very BlackBerry Messenger-esque as it issues each ...
  • Orbit to bring a new way of organizing and interacting with your address book.
    by Mike
    Posted October 8th, 2009 at 1:59 pm
    Searching for a socially aware phone book that isn't limited to a particular hardware, software, service, or provider? Look no further than Orbit, a socially aware phone book that will tie you and your friends' social activities and social networking accounts into one easy to access location. From the brief time I've spent researching Orbit, I am rather impressed and hoping to give it a thorough, proper review once it officially launches. The feature that strikes me the most is how groups...

  • AT&T finds a heart. Now allowing VoIP apps on WiFi and cellular connections!
    by Mike
    Posted October 7th, 2009 at 8:52 am
    Score one big one for the consumer. It seems months of bitching from consumers and the FCC alike have finally gotten AT&T; to open up. The ridiculous ban on VoIP apps is now no more. iPhone users should especially find this good news as several apps (including Google Voice) are now technically "legal" under AT&T;'s new ToS. Yesterday we saw Vonage slip into the App Store which raised a few flags as it broke several previous rules of AT&T;'s ToS. Look for many more VoIP apps to become a lot mor...
  • Apple rejects Google Voice, approves hypocrisy and double standards.
    by Mike
    Posted October 6th, 2009 at 8:28 am
    The Google Voice/Apple/iPhone drama has died down recently, though behind the scenes as far as the FCC is concerned, is still very much a pressing issue. Even though it isn't as big of a deal currently in the mainstream media, this drama is far from over. The recent approvals on both the Vongae and Skype apps highlight one glaring problem: Apple (1) is a hypocrite and (2) support double standards. What do I mean? The Vonage and Skype apps are pretty much the same as the rejected Google Voic...
  • RIM releases widget SDK for BlackBerry developers
    by Mike
    Posted October 6th, 2009 at 7:47 am
    One of my biggest complaints with BlackBerries, and the main reason I've moved on to the iPhone and soon Android is the fact that the OS feels old. Sure there are tons of themes to pretty it up, but at the end of the day even the leaked 5.0 beta is essentially the same 4.1 OS from years before. RIM is taking baby steps in the right direction however with their release of an official BlackBerry widget SDK. The widgets will pull from several languages including HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. ...
