Not sure how long to roast that chicken? The Betty Crocker Cookbook was always there for you. Now it's there for you on your iPhone!



Amazon Kindle ebook reader updated

image

I love this application. From what I've read, Kindle for iPhone isn't the best ebook reader. But it certainly suits my needs. What I like best is the ease of putting books on my iPhone and the opportunity to download samples. I'm currently reading The Well Dressed Ape. It's the perfect book for reading on the iPhone because it has lots of fascinating bite-sized bits of information.



More detail on iPhone 3.0; may include a compass

image

The Internet was abuzz yesterday when Apple iPhone Apps published specs of iPhone 3.0 that it said came from a reliable source — and in the process overwhelming that website's server. So head on over and see what the excitement is about. One interesting tidbit is that it's again reporting that iPhone 3.0 will include a built-in compass. This was also reported by Fortune magazine.



Quick Look: Eat Will Grow

image

Eat Will Grow was one of those "hey, it's temporarily free so let's grab it" type downloads. As it turns out, I'm glad I did. The premise is simply to last as long as you can before colliding with what I would describe as a mine. Along the way you'll collect rings for points, but the rings will cause you to grow over time (it's sort of like the old snake game except you grow bigger around rather than longer). You can also collect a power up that will temporarily either speed up or slow down the flow of the game.

 One of the apps on the front page of my iPhone is Ultimate ToDo's, v 1.4. I use this little gem for my personal life, my college life, and in my work. Unlike some of my other apps, I've used this one for several months now, and I'm extremely happy with the product.

Here's how I use Toodledo:

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..."
