When I’m using my PC at work, I’m able to quickly open Outlook and call up an e-mail group, for instance to send out a tech-support bulletin to our field sites, or maybe report a bug to our development team. At home, I use mostly Gmail, and also have a few helpful contact groups configured (like for our bloggers), but I have yet to find a way to sync the grouping to my iPod touch.
As a resident of Texas & someone who is generally interested in watching the weather, I was very happy to see WeatherBug for the iPhone. There are 2 versions available: WeatherBug (FREE) & WeatherBug Elite (.99c). Both are very good apps. I 1st had the free version, then upgraded to the Elite version so I could have ALL of the features.
If you're eager to get the new iPhone 3G S but found out that you don't qualify for the lowest-priced upgrade for another month or three, I have good news for you. AT&T has announced that if you're eligible for an upgrade in July, August, or September, you no longer need to wait. You can get your new phone right away — at the lowest upgrade price.
Last year AT&T opened up their national network of Wi-Fi hotspots so that iPhone users could have free access — Starbucks, McDonalds, airports, etc. But accessing these now-free hotspots was cumbersome, involving entering your phone number, receiving a text message, then clicking a link in that message.
Welcome to my new blog here at iPhoneLife.com. It’s about all things iPhone and Music. After writing an article for this past spring’s print edition of the magazine, I realized that things are moving so quickly in iPhone app development that dealing with the long lead time print requires would mean missing out on cool new entries. So time to start blogging!
Well, thanks to Steve Green, instead of reviewing some software right now, I'm waiting for the new 3.0 upgrade to complete on my iPod touch. The download is 257.8MB so if you don't have a broadband connection, it might take a while. I simply synced my ipod, and in the Summary tab it indicated that version 3.0 was available. Click the Update button, and it should run without much interaction (beyond the usual iTunes verifications, of course).
The website iSmashPhone has an awesome article titled "How To Use The Best 40 Features of iPhone 3.0." It not only lists these features, some which I hadn't heard about before, but often also tells you use to use them, complete with screen shots. The features include: e-mailing up to 5 photos at a time, shake to undo or redo, shake to shuffle, copy/paste, autofill username/password, Spotlight search, move an app across pages, mail search, and notes search.
The highly anticipated iPhone 3.0 update is just a few hours away according to sources. The expected times are 10 AM Pacific/1 PM Eastern time and will be available via iTunes.
The update is free for all iPhone users. All iPod Touch users will be charged an upgrade fee of $9.99. A worthy update to the platform, the 3.0 update will contain a host of new features and fixes and is the centerpiece to the new iPhone 3G S being released this Friday.
The new iPhone 3G S, which will be on sale Friday, is already in high demand. According to InformationWeek, Apple and ATT&T have already sold out their allotment of pre-order units for the June 19 launch. Those who ordered after June 13 may have to wait one or two weeks to receive their iPhone.
TidBITS has a great article on the eligibility criteria for getting the lowest subsidized price for the new iPhone 3G S. While no one knows all of the criteria, the article explains that it's not simply how long you've had your phone. Another factor, for example, is your account history — and how promptly you pay your bill. Also, the article points out that their system sometimes makes mistakes, and that the only way you can be sure you're getting the lowest possible price is to call AT&T.
