Do you Whistle (free)?  I guess I'm still a bit tongue tied with my latest VoiP app for the iPad, yes you're hearing me right a VoiP phone for the iPad (and other devices too).

 The WhistlePhone Service is interesting for a number of reasons; 1) it designed an app for the iPad, 2) it utilizes an add you have to listen to before each call to make your voip call free in the US, or from anywhere else to the US.

Rearrange icons from your iPhone or iPod touch

Issue: 
  1. Go the Home page that has the app icon you want to move.
  2. Press and hold down on the icon until the icons begin to shake.
  3. Slide it to the position you want it to occupy on the current Home page. You can also use this technique to move icons from one page to another. Simply slide them to the extreme left or right edge of the screen until the other Home screen page appears. Then move it into the desired position on that page.
  4. Move any other icon in a similar fashion. When you're finished rearranging things…
  5. Press on the Home button to exit the "rearrange" mode.

Rearranging your icons

Issue: 

iTunes iConsAs you add apps to your iPhone or iPod touch, they appear as icons on the Home screen. When the Home screen is full, a second screen is added which can accept icons for another 16 apps. You can have a total of 11 screens holding 176 apps (including the apps built into the iPhone).


By default, app icons are added to these Home screens in the order they are installed.

Jumping to the Home screen; switching between screens

Issue: 

If you like to download and install third-party apps, you quickly wind up with multiple Home screens. A flick of the finger will take you from one Home screen to another. A quick way to get back to the main Home screen from other Home screen pages is to press the Home button. (This feature is available from version 2.2 onward.) In addition, you can switch between Home screens without swiping by tapping the lower left and right corners of the screen.

Skip Apple's iPad Dock

image

Greetings folks. 

Last week when I picked up the Moses tablet I also picked up Apple's iPad dock. I wanted the iPad 10W USB Power Adapter but they were out. Purchasing the dock was a total waste. I read more about the iPad dock online and found out that the dock doesn't work if you have your iPad in a case. Big FUBAR on Apple's part.

Luckily, I didn't open it and was able to instead return it and exchange it for an extra power adapter. And the iPad power adapter comes with an additional usb sync cable and includes an extra 6 feet of cord. So folks, save the $29.00 and instead spend it on the iPad 10W USB Power Adapter for work or to keep in your bag.

Ethics and App Reviews

Editorial ethics have been around as long as the published word, but that might not be obvious if you have read iPhone App review sites. Unfortunately, there are some Web publishers (and reviewers) that put quick cash in front of the best interests of their readers by taking money for reviews. Selling out is the critic's cardinal sin, and the growing tendency to do so is why we published the Organization for App Testing Standards (a.k.a., O.A.T.S.).


O.A.T.S. is a group of iPhone App review publications that came together to raise the journalistic bar for the emerging world of iPhone application and game review sites.
