11 things to configure after iOS5 upgrade

To tell you the truth, I have been holding off with the iOS5 upgrade until yesterday. In the old iPhone days I was always the first to upgrade but I’m getting a bit more precautious lately. Yesterday I couldn’t wait anymore and because there were no major issues reported by the people around me, I decided to jump as well.

Once the iPhone was finally upgraded, I was looking around if all was set automatically to desirable settings, at least for my interest. The following things I changed immediately, or are at least worthwhile looking at, if it interests you too.

your gps receiver has been turned off - error

Yesterday I reinstalled iGO Primo on my iPhone because of a long story I don’t want to bother you with. Anyway so far so good, the app was installed and I started the application. After been walking through the initialization wizard I go to > Show Map.

It shows me the map, but instead of Brussels where I was, it showed Paris, which is the application default for not finding your GPS fix apparently. In the top of the screen I saw the message “your GPS receiver has been turned off”.

The iPhone upgrade project, part 2: leaving Safari

In Part One of this series, I talked about how I wanted to replace the built in iPhone E-mail app. I settled in the end on simply using Safari and the Gmail web interface, but Safari has a few shortcomings of its own. The biggest, and most surprising, is that it’s really not designed for the small screen of an iPhone. The address bar at the top and tab bar at the bottom take up a lot of screen real estate that would be better used to show me what I’m looking at.

It has no ability to set a homepage, although you can create a shortcut on your Springboard to the page you want, but that seems so kludgy. Bookmark management is horrendous, and I’ve recently learned that once you launch it, Safari continues to run in the background until you reboot your iPhone. If you find your iPhone is slow or crashy, and you left a number of tabs open in Safari when you last used it, go in and close them to see the difference. I still have a 3G, so I can’t really afford something taking up my very limited memory.

How To Make Your iPhone App Launch Faster

So, one of the most common complaints about PCalc before 1.7 is that it took too long to launch – around four seconds on an iPhone 1st Generation. I actually got emails accusing me of having a massive ego because I was making the splash screen stay up for so long. Now, I may have a massive ego anyway, but that’s not why it was happening.

6 Webkit Tricks to Easily Create Stunning iPhone Web Designs

Webkit is the display engine created by Apple to render pages in Safari on OS X and the iPhone. Like Firefox, it has a series of specific CSS properties you can use to design pages for Mac or iPhone. Unfortunately, though, there isn’t much documentation on the web about Webkit. So, here’s a list of six Webkit properties you can use for your next iPhone or Mac website. Remember, these don’t work on any other browser, so I wouldn’t recommend using them for a PC-oriented website without CSS hacks or IE fallbacks.
