 My husband, son and I all installed the Mover app (Infinite Labs v. 1.0.2) yesterday so we could try it out. It was fast to install and easy to send a photo. And it's FREE!

"What would you like for dinner?" "I don't know." Are you tired of hearing "I don't know"? Are you tired of always trying to come up with something new & different? Not sure how long to roast that chicken? The Betty Crocker Cookbook was always there for you. Now it's there for you on your iPhone!



Amazon Kindle ebook reader updated

image

I love this application. From what I've read, Kindle for iPhone isn't the best ebook reader. But it certainly suits my needs. What I like best is the ease of putting books on my iPhone and the opportunity to download samples. I'm currently reading The Well Dressed Ape. It's the perfect book for reading on the iPhone because it has lots of fascinating bite-sized bits of information.



More detail on iPhone 3.0; may include a compass

image

The Internet was abuzz yesterday when Apple iPhone Apps published specs of iPhone 3.0 that it said came from a reliable source — and in the process overwhelming that website's server. So head on over and see what the excitement is about. One interesting tidbit is that it's again reporting that iPhone 3.0 will include a built-in compass. This was also reported by Fortune magazine.



Quick Look: Eat Will Grow

image

Eat Will Grow was one of those "hey, it's temporarily free so let's grab it" type downloads. As it turns out, I'm glad I did. The premise is simply to last as long as you can before colliding with what I would describe as a mine. Along the way you'll collect rings for points, but the rings will cause you to grow over time (it's sort of like the old snake game except you grow bigger around rather than longer). You can also collect a power up that will temporarily either speed up or slow down the flow of the game.

I was writing a post on the best way to use Pandora on the iphone (link to article) and it struck me that THIS is how we may see ‘run in background’ support working on the iphone and why we want it.



Keeping Myself Organized with Ultimate ToDo

 One of the apps on the front page of my iPhone is Ultimate ToDo's, v 1.4. I use this little gem for my personal life, my college life, and in my work. Unlike some of my other apps, I've used this one for several months now, and I'm extremely happy with the product.

Here's how I use Toodledo:
