If I were still in college, I would be one of the coolest kids using my iPhone to record lectures. I would proudly place in on the desk and press record….but how?
That’s what iPhone Recorder offers, together with the ability to directly record audio to ringtones without any computer necessary!
Dynamic volume adjustment, channel and bitrate control, and a choice of mp3, mp4 and aac file formats round out a decent range of options; you can also directly attach them to an email from the app itself.
Right now (AppStore coming soon!) iPhone Recorder requires a Jailbroken handset, and if that so happens to be the case, you’ll have to pay $30.00 which is kind of pricey if you ask me.
It is great to see some recording capabilities open up though. Go ahead and get yourself a copy, and tell me how you like it.more...
If you aren’t quite sure what ZiPhone is, allow mw to explain. ZiPhone is one of the (if not the only) most popular tools for automatically jailbreaking and unlocking iPhones.
Yesterday, the software has updated to version 3.0 and includes some much anticipated features by some. They include, No more need of fix nvram, solution for GREYED wifi, no need for YouTube Fixes, embedded apps installer, and customized plugins.
The new release is available in both Mac and Windows versions and you can get it here. Enjoy!more...
With the introduction of an Interface Builder and revised APIs, developers have a more complete set of tools to work with to make our experience just a little bit better.
Below is a video demonstration of PhotoBoard, an application that looks amazing. The program presents a grid surface upon which photos from the user library can be laid. The grid can then be navigated, and photos rotated and manipulated.
Check it out. The program kind of reminds me of Microsoft’s Surface, which has some nifty effects.
I have an extensive collection of DVDs that I have been trying to digitally store so I can easily watch them on my portables, but never found the best and easiest way to do this. There is hope.
HandBrake, a free Mac OS X/Windows utility for ripping videos from DVDs and saving them in various formats has been updated to include the ability to generate iPhone compatible video at its full size.
It is as simple as downloading and installing the software, inserting the desired DVD into your computer’s optical drive and converting.
I love the program and it is as simple as flying a kite, although that can be a difficult task.
Download the utility here.
With iTunes 7.6, you can now manually manage music on your iPhone. You can’t, however, listen to music stored on your iPhone on your computer. A new release of ecamm’s iPhoneDrive makes that possible - if you’re on a Mac.
PhoneDrive is a tool created for storing files on the iPhone as if it were a removable drive (What Apple should have made possible), much like the iPod’s disk mode function. It can copy music and other media to or from the iPhone or iPod Touch.
Version 1.4 allows you to play music stored on the iPhone or iPod Touch. The new release also lets you access (and copy) call logs, SMS messages, and photos from the camera.
You can try this software for 7 days, then after that, you are going to have to pay $20.00. After my 7 day trial, I am impressed with the softwares’ capabilities. I had no problems and able to use my iPhone just as I pictured when it was first released. That, of course, changed when that “disk mode” feature was left out.
Try it out here!
I’ve never been a fan of Guitar Hero, but I am pretty interested in Pocket Guitar.
Pocket Guitar is a virtual guitar that transforms your iPhone and iPod Touch into workable guitar frets. Play a chord and strum your iPhone for an experience in music you thought you could never have and may have never wanted.
Pocket Guitar even lets you kick out the jams with songs loaded on your iPhone.
Pocket Guitar is super simple to install and you can find it here. Now if you could excuse me, I am going to work on my acoustic masterpiece!more...
Have you ever used PocketMoney? If you haven’t, try it on your iPhone! Catamount software has released a beta for PocketMoney for the iPhone.
“PocketMoney was designed to do one thing and do it very well - track your finances quickly with the smallest amount of work. PocketMoney will help you keep your checking, savings, credit card and petty cash accounts in line.”
I have not tried it yet, but looking at the screenshots, seems to be a cool application to use.
For now, PocketMoney requires a Jailbroken iPhone to be installed.
Tired of the same ol’ nature wallpaper for your phone?
I love nature photographs, but I am a little tired of them. If you are like me, and change your wallpaper for your iPhone all the time, then try out some unique wallpaper.
The Poolga.com website is filled with awe inspiring wallpaper designs from simple to extravagant. These incredibly unique images were created by designers, artists, illustrators and dopey street bums from around the world. They want to share their designs with the rest of us and are doing an excellent job. Enjoy!
Warning: The wallpaper on the site does get extremely strange.more...
I was looking for the day when an application would be released that allows you to send MMS messages to others.
A native MMS application has been released for the iPhone. The 0.1 release only allows sending MMS messages, but unfortunately will not receive them. MMS allows you to send multimedia (such as photos) to others via text-messaging. In it’s current stage, the iPhone only supports SMS. Hopefully, we will see more than that in the future (wink wink).
The application is still an early version and requires some manual setup to work with your provider. More information is available here.
Owners of hacked iPhones can install it using Installer.app. Enjoy!more...
Want to back up your SMS messages? It is not long before you start receiving the message that your inbox is starting to get full, forcing you to delete ,perhaps, an important conversation.
This is where Syphone comes into play.
Micromat has a utility called Syphone which is a freeware Mac application that lets you view, save and backup your SMS messages.
The iPhone has a limit on the number of SMS messages it can store at one time. If this limit is exceeded, existing conversations must be deleted in order to make room for new messages.
Syphone allows you to view and/or save any of these conversations, including deleted messages.
A beta is available for download and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or greater. Try it out. It might save your life!more...
