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.

App-A-Day Project: Spot The Bug

image

Now from the name you're probably thinking this is some boring programmer's game or an insect variation of "Where's Waldo?".  In actuality it's an interesting take on the match 3 genre.  Unfortunately, like most of the games in this series to date, it suffers from inadequate controls and hasty implementation.  Here we go again...



Infant app's for child development

I’ve recently had the opportunity to review Mantaray Creative Labs iBaby Buddy ($1.99) and like what I see with one caveat.  From the get go it should be obvious that you take risks handing over a several hundred dollar iPhone to an infant, I could easily imagine the lady at the Apple Genius bar asking if my iPhone got wet and my saying, “Does my baby teething on it count?”  But with that caveat, and a parents desire to give their children the best learning opportunities they can, I think this is a use of the iPhone worth following.



Welcome to iPhone OS3.0

Apple introduces the 3rd version of its revolutionary mobile OS at WWDC.
Upgrades will be free to iPhone users and $9.95 for iPod touch owners.

On June 8 Apple revealed the third version of the iPhone OS, an immense update to the iPhone interface. It’s easier to list what appears not to have changed—Weather and Calculator—than what has changed. Apple stated that there were over 100 new user features and 1,000 new developer APIs (see page 80) in the new OS, which was released June 17.
