Serious contacts bug for Verizon iPhone 4S users; other bug problems and fixes

image

iPhone Life magazine publisher David Averbach found that his iPhone 4S had a serious bug after updating to the latest version of iOS 5. His phone no longer remembered the names of any of his contacts. A post by Paul Hontz on The Startup Foundry clearly desicribes the issue. Apparently it only affects Verizon iPhone 4S users and only if you update your iOS software over-the-air. According to Hontz, his contacts are still there, but the person's name wouldn't appear if he got a call or text message.

Factor Samurai - Cut non-prime numbers down to size!

Back in my day when we used things like sliderules, protractors, and multiplication tables (had mine printed on a little cheat sheet), I remember thinking what a total drag mathematics were. I'd rather be outside playing kickball. If I would have had Factor Samurai, I would have jumped on my "times tables" like a shark eating a surfer (go shark)! If you got school kids mildly to severely uninterested in math, this is a clever way to get them interested. Read on for more review comments and info on the app...



FreeAppWall Review

image

The app called “Free App Wall” is easily the best one of its type which I’ve tried so far.  The point of this handy app is to find other apps which are not normally free but are for one reason or another.  This is often because the other apps are new or being promoted or something of this nature but the bottom line is this is the best way to find great apps for free that I’ve seen.



Review: I Won't Fall by Agni Studios

image

I Won’t Fall is the heartwarming saga of a mother hen who will risk anything to save her baby chicks.  In all honesty the game can sometimes get a bit depressing, especially when you get smacked again and again by the picture of a baby chick with a solitary tear running down its cheek if you fail a level.  Have no fear, though, because love always prevails and when you finally conquer the treacherous surroundings and reach each baby chick you’ll feel warm and fuzzy all over. At least I think that’s the emotions from the game…



iFrogz Mix - Edge protection without the bulk!

image

Looking a little like a Kevlar vest for iPhone, the new iFrogz Mix is a polycarbonate hybrid case with a thicker TPU edge. TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane) is a choice material for it's resistance to abrasions, oil and grease, while retaining excellent elasticity. It's better than traditional rubber in some respects as it is lacking in overly adhesive properties (easier to pull out of the back pocket), with the added benefit of anti-microbial properties. Wow that sounded scientific... I need to stop researching and reviewing all these darn cases...



Color Splurge iPhone App Review

image

Everyone is looking for a great way to play with color in a photograph.  With Color Splurge; you can do just that!  This is where you can take practically any photo and turn it into black and white while adding additional colored features to enhance and personalize.  It’s a fantastic way to bring out that special photo and give it an artistic touch.

When initially signing on; a quick explanation of buttons is shown, but a little too quick to read.  A suggestion to the developer would be to slow this down, but the option to access it again is located on the top right icon pictured with a question mark.  But, the fact remains that it isn’t necessary; you can click on each one to understand their easy capabilities.
