iPhone In Action – Dial Zero

By

On August 28, 2008

Here’s the setup- back in July I had a total failure of my 500 GB backup harddrive. OUCH!

Fortunately after a total meltdown last fall I had created a redundancy system so very little of my data was  actually lost. I called the company that makes the hard drive and, since it was only a few months old, they told me to send it to them. They promised to attempt to do a full data recovery but, if that did not work, they said they would at least fix or replace the drive.

I shipped it out and went on vacation.

Yesterday I realized I had never gotten the drive back. I called the company but they could not find a record of my having sent it. Fortunately I (or more accurately my super-organize wife) had a copy of the shipping receipt. Since it was insured I knew I could find out where it had landed and then figure out how to have it fixed or replace.

Now I don’t know if you have ever tried to phone a real live person at the US Postal Service but it is close to impossible.

App Update – Tap Tap Revenge

By

On

I continue to be amazed by the stream of excellent app updates flowing into the App Store and out to us. Sure there are the requisite bug fixes but most of the time it is for more than that. Most of the time it is developers making their apps even more fully-featured or useful. This is the case with the new update for Tap Tap Revenge.

Tap Tap Revenge is best as “Guitar Hero meets the iPhone”. While music plays "beat bubbles" flow down one of the three strings in time. If you tap the bubbles as they crosses the bottom you get points. If you miss them you get a humiliating "Miss!"
Miss a lot and, as Dimitri said in his review,

"… you feel like throwing the iPhone across the room (well, maybe not)."

Dimitri’s biggest criticism at the time was—

"Unfortunately, the current selection of music, while good in my opinion, is exceptionally limited." Well, no more.

Just Released- Woot!!

I like Woot!

If you don’t know what that means you should!

Woot! is the ultimate "hit-or-miss internet bargain shopping" experience.

Woot! offers just one item (and only one item) per day.

Sometimes the items are brand new. Sometimes they’re not.

Sometimes the items are fantastic. Sometimes they’re crap.

Sometimes the deals are good. Sometimes the deals are GREAT!

And that is the problem with Woot!

eReader Goes (even more) Mobile

By

On

I’ve been a good fan-boy lately and haven’t mentioned eReader in over a week.  This really deserved mention, though.

 

As I have noted, eReader for iPhone works amazingly well. The original version was fine and the update at the end of July kicked it up to great. The fact that, from the very beginning, you could go to your eReader bookshelf and can not go to your Fictionwise bookshelf, as well, was a terrific convenience. Buying books, however, wasn’t as easy. The eReader site is accessible from the iPhone but the panning and zooming necessary were horrible. Well, that all changed in the last few days.

 

Coming To The App Store Today – Golden Skull

By

On

I love Astraware’s games and played a lot of them back in my Windows Mobile days. I like their racing game GTS World Racing and will be revewing it soon. Some time today, though, they will be releasing Golden Skull. Thanks to Astraware I’ve had the chance to play it this morning and it is a whole lot of fun. Here is their description:

Help Saeed on his journey through Mayan ruins to recover the Golden Skull. Touch groups of sparkling gems to make them disappear and earn the 5 gold coins you’ll need to progress on your search for the Golden Skull. Remove larger groups to earn your coins more quickly but don’t run out of moves or your journey will end.

Golden Skull has some nice features.

 

 

What’s On (My) iPhone- Daniel Ortiz Edition

By

On

I’m not only the newest member of the WhatsOniPhone team but I am also the youngest.

We all love our iPhones but depending on our stage in life our needs are going to be different. As a result, the apps we use most will (likely) be different too.

Dan’s been writing about what’s on his iPhone and focusing on the apps he uses most.

I thought I would do the same…

So, What’s On (My) iPhone?…

App Update: Now Playing

By

On

I love the fact that good apps are now being regularly updated so that they become even better apps. Case in point- Now Playing (aka Box Office).

The new update makes a couple of meaningful tweaks that make an incredibly useful app even better.

First, they have improved communication between the iPhone and the Now Playing server so that it works faster and better for everyone but especially for iPhones using an Edge connection.(Translation- it’s faster.)

Second, they added the ability to email listings to yourself and others. A small addition but a nice convenience.

Third, they added the ability to set specific theaters as "Favorites" so that regardless of your location you’ll know what is playing at your favorite theater even faster.

Finally, they made two other little tweaks by putting the theater after the movie title instead of before it and the added the option to turn off review scores altogether. (I love this last one since they were SO distracting on such a small screen.)

There you have it- It isn’t a major overhaul but these little incremental improvements really begin to add up.
