ESPN ScoreCenter App is a Home Run

This weekend I stumbled across the ESPN ScoreCenter app. And let me tell you this app is a must have for any sports nut or even a non-sports nut like myself.



iPod touch owners may not want to upgrade to 3.0

PCMag.com is reporting the results of some speed tests of the iPod touch after upgrading to 3.0 — with the result that it actually slows some things down. The testing found that even though JavaScript speed is greatly enhanced, operations such as startup and web page loading are slower. Of course if features such as copy and paste are more important to you than speed, then you'll want to spend the $10 and upgrade anyway.



One Phone Charger per Person - will Apple play along?

The European Union just made a deal with mobile phone manufacturers to have only one, standard charger for future phones, and they hope to expand the standard to cameras and laptops.  Can I get an amen?



A full compliance & test report of stereo Bluetooth sound (A2DP) in iPhone OS 3

I’ve finished (thoroughly) testing my six A2DP headphones with the new Bluetooth stereo support of iPhone OS 3.0 (OS3 for short), along with their traditional mobile phone headset functionality.

(in-call view: as can be seen, you can dynamically switch from the Bluetooth headset to the iPhone.



Wanted: Foldable, Portable iPhone Keyboard

image

 Attention product developers at MacNally, Belkin, etc. For the love of all that is holy can someone please develop a foldable, portable external keyboard for both the iPhone and iPod touch. Am I the only one who has been dying for one of these to be out on the market? I know that MacNally had created a bluetooth external keyboard last year that never made it to the market due to the fact that it required a Bluetooth connection which was not available until this past week when the iPhone 3.0 was released.



Grabbing the new iPod Update!

image

 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).



Toki Tori and Knights Onrush go lite

image

Toki Tori and Knights Onrush are currently two of my favorite Chillingo games, as evidenced by my recent reviews (Toki Tori and Knights Onrush). Understandably, though, at a price point of $4.99 many people are hesitant to take the plunge regardless of glowing reviews. Chillingo has thankfully addressed that problem by providing lite versions of both applications. Here's what they have to say:



Review: Joyland Bounce

image

There's something to be said for developers that stray from the norm, and that something is "thank you".  I've recently had the pleasure of playing Joyland Bounce from Gamesmith Studios, and despite the casual, no-die nature of the game - something unusual for a platform style game - I've been quite captivated.  Some will find the lack of enemies and ultimate destruction a turn off, but its nice every once in a while to play something with a purpose that's also relaxing.  Joyland Bounce fits the bill quite nice



Gaming Strategy Guide: Sentinel by Origin8

image

Despite the low price ($2), probably one of the best Tower Defense games for the iPhone is Sentinel by Origin8. The title is highly popular; no wonder a sequel has just been announced, slated for June. I highly recommend it - apart from the repetitive in-game music, it's excellent.


How to Transfer Contact Info on Your iPhone or iPod Touch

image

How many times have you wanted to send someone contact information from your iPhone or iPod Touch, but you couldn’t do it? Instead, you had to manually type the information into an Email to send it or tell them the information over the phone. Big time waster!
