Misc news & roundup / guide updates (09/27/2009)

I’ve updated several of my guides / bibles / roundups to reflect the latest changes. See the bottommost “UPDATE (09/27/2009)” section in each of them. The only news item I haven’t published in another article is the one describing the new Backgrounder version.

AppStore news:

Ever wanted to watch WMV (TV) streams on your iPhone? Now you can!: making Streamer compatible with all WMV streams; NetTV [Lite] news.

iPhone Multiplayer Gaming Bible: several new games, including the Bluetooth-enabled Real Racing. (Note that this piece of news is different from the one posted some days ago – I list games released since then.)

Everything you'll ever need to know about listening to radio on the iPhone (more precisely, in Part II): new version of Pocket Tunes Radio, now, supporting background playback – just like ooTunes.

iPhone Web browser roundup: new version of Journey Web browser. (Still) not recommended.

Cydia news:

A genuine quick scroller, QuickScroll, released in Cydia – an absolute must!: the new version has just been released with TONS of new configuration options / features. The best has been made even better…

Backgrounder has been updated for OS3; now, it displays a badge for running programs as can be seen in the following screenshot (see the “clock” badges in the lower left corners of the four apps (iCab Mobile, Mail, Safari and iPod) in the lowermost part of the screen).
