Its no secret I’m not a big fan of the itunes player on the iphone. Navigation is my biggest complaint.  Seems someone agrees and created a far better ipod app.  PanAmp.  There are some many thing this does that its actually better to watch the video.  Insert below.  My favorite feature is the speed and… Read More

Straight from the web site!  I will update as I learn more. * I just tried one of the apps, and it works great.  And that is not surprising because is coco, but still, anytime you go from one language to another there are risks.  But so far, so good. 3 of the demo apps… Read More

There have been enough rejected apps in the iphone store to support a top 10 list.  Now, after the shaken baby app getting through, then pulled but the NIN app getting rejected full stop, tells me the review process is spotty at best, faulty at worst.  And then you have people like ‘Victor Wang’ who… Read More

This is great. I use Pandora as my radio when I drive for my radio music exclusively. I have another app for BBC and NPR, but music… pandora. I do not even remember the last time I listen to the radio for music. Funny thing though, the radio stations in the Bay area stink for… Read More

I cannot count the number of times I’ve heard of useful and cool apps rejected from the Apple store for ‘typically’ stupid reasons, and when I heard about ‘baby shaker’ getting through, all I could do was shake my head and think, how did a sick tasteless app like this get through?  Well, it took… Read More

This is pretty cool.  I fully agree with Peter Kirn that Apple rejecting this as an app is sillyness.  But then again, thats not new.  Still, I admire the push to get this to work within the browser.  I have not tried it myself since I only have PHP running on my linux box which is not… Read More

Actually, I’m not sure I should even call this a rumor.  I mean why not?  I do not think youTube has a contract or anything that would incourage Apple to keep them out.. so I say Hurraa and speed it up! From the webware site:   Silicon Alley Insider is reporting that a dedicated Hulu application is indeed… Read More

Ok, a joke there.  The fact it was jailbroken so quickly is quite impressive. I would have figured early summer, but the proof code is out there.  Course, Apple has some language in the SDK agreement saying that you will NOT contribute to jailbreaking efforts.  This will not stop the jailbreaking, but does give the… Read More

At GDC yesterday, I walked past a display showing the ‘Zeemote’.  They had it working with a verity of phones (from the site: major manufacturers like Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, Motorola, and, Samsung).  Missing of course?  The iPhone!  Why? Because it uses Bluetooth which the iPhone VERY poorly supports. However, times.. they are a chang’in..… Read More

I wrote about this last week, how I did not care much for the kindle reader, and cared less about amazon crashing on me. (still have not determined the problem yet… been busy). It felt slow and a touch klunky. It crashed the first time I loaded it.  From what I read, the time is… Read More

I’m jailbroken, so when an app does not work, I tend to give it 50/50 odds that one of the jailbreak apps could be causing issues.  But with the Amazon’s new Kindle, I’m beginning to think it could be more Kindle then jailbreak. When I first loaded the app, it locked up the OS forcing… Read More

First off, I’m really surprised not more people raised a stink about this.  When I checked the boards and twitter, it was clear it was on many phones, but either few people seemed to care or the word got out to go through the web interface to play movies.  Perhaps I’m one of the few… Read More

I already wrote about these guys awhile ago, but their app just hit Cydia, so I thought I would pass the word.  I’ve downloaded the app to play with it, but have not had time to read the instructions yet.  (did not work out-of the-box). Here is the orginal post.. and this post…… Read More

As I’m sure everyone knows, 2.2.1 is out.  And what does it offer us?  Not much. from PCWorld: The software is said to improve Safari’s stability and fix an image issue in which pictures saved from Mail don’t display properly in the Camera Roll. Yep — that’s it. Pish.  Whatever.  Not worth the download much… Read More

I say one step closer because Clippy (a jailbreak app) is still not the full deal.  What clippy will do is keep a string (string= series of alphanumerics) in memory so that you can paste that string into another applications.  There are even limits here, conflicts with intelliscreen, etc.. Still, I like where it’s going,… Read More

Bummer, I have not reviewed an app for awhile, mostly because I’ve been very busy with twittfilter ( and there has not been anything new that really caught my attention.. Until I say ‘SaveMyDocs’ The idea is to use javascript to allow you to save a web page into a variety of formats that you… Read More

I really like SimCity for the iphone.  I think they did a great job, esp with the UI.  I still enjoy and lose far more time then intended playing it.  However, there are a number of things that just really piss me off.  Ok, so EA, if you are reading this, take notes..  Beginning rant….… Read More

You knew it was coming.  They claim Increased stability.  I’ll download and test.  We’ll see if anything else is new. {UPDATE} OK, it does seem to work a bit better but when you start it, it recommends you do a reboot before starting the game.  Thanks, already figured that.  Still takes awhile to start and… Read More

I did a review of football when it first came out back in Sept. Story here. So I got another email last week saying LED football2 is out. Downloaded it, played with it, and just like the first one, its fun. Totally reminds me of when the original came out.  Whats different here is the… Read More

I played my fair share of desktop towers back in the day.  It was pretty fun, but I mostly burned myself out after a few multi hour sessions.  So when Towers first came out ( I guess a month?) ago, I did not bother with it. Well, last night I saw a free version and… Read More
