I like MobileMe, especially for the FindMyiPhone feature (which I've used a few times) but it could use some competition, especially in terms of price. Ironically, before I became a full-time iPhone app developer, I worked for a software firm in the printing industry. We partnered with Ricoh and in that capacity, I beta tested their quanp service. Similar to MobileMe's iDisk feature, you can upload and share photos and files such as PowerPoint and PDF documents.
Ok, things aren't going quite as planned. My car was stolen this morning from the hotel parking lot. Thank goodness for my iPhone!!!
Everyone, right now, download the "Evernote" app and take a picture of your license plate, registration and insurance information. I had all my info ready! I still don't have my car, but my stress level this morning when I walked to the parking lot and saw a pile of glass instead of my car, could have been much, much worse!!

Will soon be posting up a review on this multi-game app from Dreamsky called iGameDock (grab it here in iTunes), but just noted that it is currently free in the App store (courtesy of FreeAppAday.com app). The cool thing is that it features 3 games, and when they update it, the games change...Go grab a copy now!
There's a lot to like about Seasonality Go ($9.99), a weather app for the iPad. And others must agree, because it's among the top 10 highest-grossing apps (including a stint at number 1). One of the things that sets it apart is all the different ways you can configure it. The app comes with a default interface that is itself quite effective. But you can also add additional screens, choosing from the 7 that they offer. In addition, you can create your own screens, selecting the elements that you'd like to have in your interface.
Todd Bernhard, one of my fellow bloggers here at iPhone Life magazine, recently posted an entry about upgrading the iPhone 3G to iOS 4 and some of the resulting issues. You can read that blog HERE. I just received an e-mail from one of our readers warning about upgrading the iPod touch to iOS 4 as well. He wrote:
"I recently updated an ipod touch 3g to Apple’s latest software revision for the iphone/ipod. What a mess- short battery life, difficult to sync with Outlook, applications not working, wifi weak if at all,…
I installed iOS4 a week ago on my iPhone 3G and since then have been cycling through my iPhone 3G contacts daily to get their feedback. So far, it’s been a non committal response, although the general consensus has been what a great opportunity to upgrade to iPhone 4!
So what are we loving?
We love the folders, especially those of us who have several screens of applications. It has added a level of organisation to the iPhone. One of my colleagues put it quite eloquently – it makes you feel like your applications are living together as a family unit, rather than a bunch of flatmates squatting in a house they have no control over.
The unified Inbox has drawn mixed reactions and this has primarily been around the way w
Much has been written about both the fragile glass back and the antenna issues of the new iPhone 4. So I tried two distinct solutions that could not be more different.
Steve Jobs is calling it Apple's most successful product launch ever -- 1.7 million iPhone 4's in the first three days. Pretty amazing. That works out to a rate of 7 phones per second. Of course, Apple is having trouble meeting this demand, and is now saying that new orders will take three weeks to ship. You can read a brief report on Macworld, as well as see the press release on Apple's site. I'm expecting mine to arrive tomorrow!
I am always on the lookout for the perfect carrying case for my iPad and Cocoon Innovations may have come close. Unfortunately, they have two great cases, each with subtle differences, so the hard part is deciding which one to get!
Thanks to the size and resolution of the iPad, graphic artists finally have a device that is both easy to use and extremely versatile when it comes to creative visual expression. Since the iPad's launch, several drawing applications have been released but few of them have the ease of use and intuitive, non-obtrusive user interface that Autodesk's Sketchbook Pro has to offer.
