The iBible: Does an Increase in Bible App Sales Imply a Shift in Demographics?

image

According to the Atlantic Monthly, on Monday, a bible app cracked the top 10 highest grossing iPad book apps of all time. The NIV Bible Reader is currently getting 3,000 downloads a day.  The app is also ranked number 2 on the iPhone just behind Green Eggs and Ham.



Mix: Free iPad Apps

image

I downloaded an app the other day for my ipad called Appstream for iPad. It reminded me of the old apple store window display that had all the cardboard apps hanging. This is kind of a fun way to find an app. I chose the setting to show me free iPad apps. The apps are displayed in real time. Click on an icon and a new box comes up that gives the pertinent information as well as screenshots and it redirects you to the app store.

 

I downloaded the below other apps that I am mentioning from Appstream also.

Recall Notice: ThinkFlood's RedEye Mini

image

 I recently completed a review on the RedEye Remote control system from ThinkFlood. Today I received notice that these units are being recalled. Please see below.

  

Recall of RedEye mini Lot C0101

We regret to announce a full recall of RedEye mini units bearing serial numbers beginning with C0101. We have determined that there is a high likelihood that these units will fail. Customers who purchased may choose to receive either a replacement unit from the next lot (D0102) or a full refund of their purchase.

 Failures are the result of vibrations which cause wiring between the headphone jack and the mini’s printed circuit board to break or to create short circuits with other components.



DashPad

DashPad allows you to use multiple widgets on the iPad in a multi-tasking environment. You can check the time, write a sticky note, search Google, calculate and look up a phone number in a dashboard environment. The program runs in Mobile Safari - in other words, you must be connected to the Internet to use DashPad.



Review: Hollywood Hospital by Zed Worldwide

image

While most time management style games are relatively close in game mechanics, I still tend to enjoy each new one I play, at least for a while.  Hollywood Hospital is no exception to the rule, and it’s actually a time management game that doesn’t take itself seriously, which is even better.  The visuals are good, the music is straight out of a bad 80s drama-dey, and the mini-games are actually rather amusing.  After a while it does suffer the same “wash, rinse, repeat” dilemma that plagues most time management games, but while it’s fresh it serves as one of the more quirky and fun time management games you’ll play on the iPhone.



DIY micro SIM

image

You know someone at iPhone Life had try making their own micro SIM card so I took the plunge and decided to sacrifice a T-Mobile card I had to give it a try in my iPad 3G.  You can certainly do this with the iPhone, but you’re going to have to jailbreak and unlock it if you want to use a carrier other than AT&T.  The iPad 3G comes unlocked, except in Japan.
