PodPlayer 1.1 Update Review

This is just a quick follow-up on my original review of PodPlayer. This new release brings several awesome features, one of which is my personal favorite. I asked the developer about adding it and he readily complied.

In addition to all the capabilities of the original 1.0 release, PodPlayer 1.1 adds the ability to automatically start playing selected podcasts when the app launches. No more fumbling around the screen or headset buttons when starting the app for the first time.



A Day in My iPhone Life: Apps I Can’t Leave Home Without—Literally!

image

I’m going to admit something to you today, iPhone Life-ers. 

My name is Adam, and I am addicted to my iPhone. That’s one of the 12 steps, right? Admitting you have a problem?  Only 11 more to go!

I’m hooked on The Apple Juice and I can’t live without it!

I feel like I can say that here because I’m amongst my own kind. You get me.

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I hear is the melodious sound of Alarm Clock Free.  I check the weather with that same app, and I hit the ground running (actually, it’s more like stumbling until I get some coffee…)!

Insider gives specs on new iPhone; event may be held on Apple's campus

image

9To5Mac, which often has pretty solid sources, has posted an article giving many details of the new iPhone. According to the site, it will have an A5 dual-core processor like that in the iPad, 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, a dual band GSM/CDMA radio (meaning, for example, that the same phone would work on both AT&T's and Verizon's networks), and a load of speech recognition features via technologies developed by Siri and Nuance — two of the leaders in this area. Will there be both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S?



What I Played this Week - Another World!

image

There are games, and then there are "Games". Games so cool and immersive, you wish they were actually in some sidereal universe you could visit (with game cheats, unlimited shields and heavy weapons of course). When I first experienced Another World, I instantly put it in that category. From the opening action sequences that set up the very cool back-story (could be a movie), to the point you crawl out of the water on Another World - 20th Anniversary (and see that thing on the cliff watching you) you feel creeped out... Tip to new game developers: This how to create a unique and compelling adventure game.



Everything iPhone - Apps, Accessories, Reviews, Wallpapers etc | iPhone Life Magazine

The iPhone has become a benchmark for all other smartphones to compete with.  Reviews on the cases, accessories, apps, wallpapers and more are located below.  Here are a couple of Articles that showcase what we have to offer.  For eaxample, iPhone 4S by Alex Cequea (iPhone Life Magazine Editor in Chief).

In that article, Alex says that the iPhone 4S has the exact same physical form factor as the iPhone 4. However, the insides are a whole different story, and Apple tried to make that very clear. The most notable improvements are the 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, the A5 dual-core processor (same as the iPad 2), and an improved battery life (8 hours of 3G talk time, 200 hours of standby). As far as the capabilities, the new Siri Assistant feature was the highlight of the show. The Siri Assistant recognizes natural language and can answer questions such as, "What's the temperature out today?" Combined with the phone's GPS, you can say something like, "Remind me to call my wife when I get to work." The Assistant will not only know who your "wife" is, it'll also know where "work" is and pop up a reminder to "call Marcy" when you get there."

Here's another great article, The Best iPhone 4 Cases. This article goes on to explain that like its iPhone predecessors, cases have become one of the most popular ways to accessorize your cell phone. Most cell phone consumers buy a case bundled with their new phone to protect it from day one. And who can blame them? Mobile devices have become hugely valuable and expensive items; you want to protect them the best way you can. There are literally hundreds of cases on the market. Let's examine the different options available on the market to help you choose the one that's right for you.


What to know how to create your own app?  "The first step in creating an app is to understand what you want to create and how you will measure its success. Make sure the idea is well vetted and there is a solid business case behind it. There are roughly 600 new apps submitted to Apple each day—what is going to differentiate your app from the thousands that are already available and being launched each week? Here are some questions you’ll want to ask when getting your app idea..."
