iMoe iPhone with SkinIt!

image

A friend who uses one of the most expensive apps I've seen (iBird: $30) sent me a photo of his new iPhone 3Gs. He had to protect his investment, of course, so he ordered a new skin from SkinIt.

On this site you select your device (in addition to phones, they offer skins for laptops and more) and then pick the image you want. There are many pre-designed images for $14.95, but my friend Mike created his custom skin by uploading a photo.

With the SkinIt customizer you can resize and reposition your image, front and back. The company claims it offers the strongest skin on the market.



eBooks on the iPhone

Why I will never buy another hardback book again.

Readle

Hardback, paperback, new, used, it doesn’t matter to me—I’ve always loved books. I’m the kind of guy who reads a book while waiting in a long line at the Department of Motor Vehicles, and then gets annoyed at the interruption when they finally call my name. I love reading, but have recently encountered a couple obstacles to my passion.

Get Healthy, Stay Healthy!

These iPhone apps help you find fresh food and quit smoking.

BroccoliIn the last issue, I wrote about losing weight with the iPhone by using apps such as Edibles Food Journal and Restaurants (“Lose Weight with the iPhone,” page 64, Vol. 1, No. 2). Losing weight is great, but it’s not the be all and end all—getting healthy should be your real goal. For example, your food decisions shouldn’t all be about calories and carbohydrates; you should be concerned about the quality of the food you eat. Note also that healthy people exercise regularly and tend to have a higher muscle-to-fat ratio. Muscle is heavier than fat, and as you build more of it, you might not lose as much per week.

App-A-Day Project: Ultimate Dungeon

image

Due to real life setting in, the developer has put the App-A-Day project on temporary hiatus.  I think this is a good thing, as it will hopefully give him time to reconsider where he's really going with this.  Maybe you'll agree with me after reading my review of his latest effort, Ultimate Dungeon.



iPhone OS 3.0 for IT

What does the new release mean for the enterprise?

When Apple launched the iPhone 3G and OS 2.0, it brought many enterprise-significant improvements to the platform, including Exchange ActiveSync support and the ability to remotely wipe devices. The enterprise-related enhancements associated with OS 3.0 and the iPhone 3G S are not as numerous. But they are nonetheless extremely significant when it comes to iPhone adoption and support within the enterprise.

Everything you'll ever need to know about listening to radio on the iPhone - Part I

image


The iPhone is an ideal platform for listening to online radio stations. In this article, I explain everything you’ll ever need to know about all this. You’ll learn how radio stations can be listened to on even non-jailbroken iPhones, without any hacks to play stations in the background; I also present a very thorough comparison of currently available third-party radio software.

First and foremost, let’s take a closer look at the built-in, out-of-the-box radio support.

1. Built-in capabilities: QuickTime

All versions of the iPhone (and, of course, the iPod Touch – from now on, I refer to all these as “iPhone”), under OS3, already have support for playing back some (not all!) possible radio stream types.
