Many business travelers often need to be contactable on two mobile numbers: one local number for their business clients and another personal number for family and friends.

The surprise of this September (as all of us wait eagerly for the release of iPhone 5) has to be Disney Mobile’s new Puzzle Arcade “Where’s My Water” or WMW (as I’ll refer to it). Released only recently on Sep 22nd and already topping Appstore charts, this app has managed to combine a familiar premise (Bring A to B) in the puzzle arcade genre, an intuitive interface (swiping the finger), and yet it has aso introduced sufficiently new elements into the game in order to stand out from the crowd.

Themes for your jailbroken iPhone: PerPage Tweak from Cydia

image

As you may already know, there are far more adventurous possibilities for theming your iPhone if it is jailbroken. Having been dissatisfied for some time with merely swapping wallpapers, I explored various theme packs on Cydia. This requires time and patience as some themes don't work well with other plug-ins and recently,  I've stumbled upon PerPageHTML, which is a very cool alternative to Winterboard for those of us who like to install cool themes on their iPhones.
