Now the game is cheap, being an iPhone app, at less than a $1 (and could be considered an absolute bargain when you think how much console and PC games of a similar standard are), but at 1/2 billion downloads it’s easy to do the maths and come up with a figure of $kerching$.
The typical elementary school curriculum doesn’t include programming, so how can a kid interested in computers and technology learn how to build apps? Sixth grader Thomas Suarez taught himself using the iPhone software development kit and then launched an app club at his school to share what he learned with his peers.
One of the biggest missing features from Apple’s Siri technology is integration with third-party apps. Apple launched Siri on the iPhone 4S with Wolfram Alpha and Yelp integration, but other developers have been unable to fully integrate their apps with Siri to create a compelling, voice-controlled experience.
It’s going on a month since the iPhone 4S made its initial debut, and we’re still without a jailbreak. Not that we’re complaining; we never expected a jailbreak for the 4S to be released this soon anyway.
Apple lost Steve, and with him the peace and quiet of being among the top in tech-industry. Since the launch of iPhone 4S just Apple co-founder Steve Jobs breathed his last, Apple has been going deeper in troublesome waters.
Take a walk through the mall, or sit in your Doctors office this year and you’ll likely meet a barrage of ringing, beeping and crooning from custom ringtone. Over the past two years smartphone use has exploded, allowing users to use any song or clip as their ringtone, but despite the ease of DIY, the ringtone business is still making big bucks.
I don’t much like using sites that don’t offer APIs. (this is one of the reasons I don’t use Quora anymore, they’ve had plenty of time to offer an API in good faith)
But I do like playing with new sites and that means playing with sites that haven’t opened up an API, yet. It’s funny I keep getting into conversations with folks about, “We’re not sure how to open an API” or “We’ve got an API, but we think we need to rebuild it (and/or outsource maintenance of it to a 3rd party) before we make it public.”
@WalmartLabs is updating the retailer’s free iPhone app, adding a number of new features that make it easy for consumers to create smart shopping lists, scan QR codes and access product information. The updated app lets you add items to your shopping list by speaking, typing or scanning a bar code.
Siri technology may sound robotic and “like an alien”, according to some users, but real people are behind the voice technology. Although those in the US hear a female version of Siri, those in the UK hear a male version of Siri in a British accent.

Drivers frequently find themselves consulting a phone for an address, then typing it into a car’s navigation system. At the Telematics Munich conference, TeleNav announced a solution to this problem, seamless interactivity between smartphones and TeleNav-equipped cars.
If you ever wanted to get some dual SIM action going on your iPhone 4, or iPhone 4S, now you can. But you’re going to need to take the jailbreak plunge first.
The system is on offer thanks to the Vooma Peel PG920, a battery back up case that also has room for a regular sized SIM. Combined with the jailbreak-only Vooma app, you can then switch to use your secondary SIM card - essentially using your iPhone as a slave UI to the PG920’s phone capabilities.
Oh, the wonderful world we live in. Less than a year ago, I was meeting with the two-man team that was Satarii in their garage-office to check out a product they called the “Star”. It was a camera dock of sorts, but with a fun twist: it’d automatically follow your movements, keeping you constantly in frame while shooting video.
Christmas is coming and finding the best iPhone 4 & 4S accessories is easy, but finding ones that are just totally cool is hard. Not anymore, say hello to the Texas Instruments Pico Projector. This is a brilliant case that allows you to project things straight from your Apple iPhone showing up to a massive 50-inch display.
If you find yourself strangely enamored with the iTree iPhone dock, then this ceramic amplifier by en&is for your iPhone and iPod Touch may also suit your tastes. Called MegaPhone, it’s shaped quite glaringly like an unadorned horn with contours designed to amplify sounds without electrical input, similar to the way a gramophone works. You can get one in either black or white, but if you want to go full-on fancy, you can always opt for the gold-plated version.
