Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2009

iPhorest: Plant a tree from your iPhoneThis is a pretty neat application. It allows iPhone users to plant a virtual tree from their phone while simultaneously activating the planting of a real tree. Originally showcased at TED, the app is now available to the masses on iTunes.

The real trees are planted by the Conservation Fund, and they will begin with the restoration of a vulnerable wildlife habitat along the Gulf Coast. It’s sponsored by Ecolife Apparel, makers of cotton “green” underwear, and was developed by iPhactory.

Just type in your message or select a piece of clipart, wave your arm in the air and do your thing. It’s available for $1 at the app store.

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on March 22nd, 2009

LEDit app for iPhone & iPod Touch LEDit is a led screen ticker emulator app available for both the iPhone and iPod Touch. It seems pretty silly at first, but when you think about it, it’s a pretty useful tool to have. Whether you’re in a noisy place like a nightclub or a silent place like library, you can use it to send others a message instead of yelling or whispering.

Just type in the message and hit the “display message” button and LEDit will scroll the message on the screen. It even vibrates to tell you when message has finished scrolling. You can customize text color, speed and set it to repeat.

Posted in Sirius by Conner Flynn on March 12th, 2009

Liberty Media rescues Sirius XMSirius XM recently just barely avoided bankruptcy and so they are on the hunt for profits once more and hoping to regain interest from consumers. CFO David Frear has confirmed that the company is developing an iPhone and iPod touch app.

This could get interesting. We will have to see how pricing works with this app. Perhaps users can get an iPhone subscription only. Or maybe it will be a part of standard subscriptions. The app should launch in the second quarter of the year.

LED Football 2 for iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 28th, 2008

LED Football 2 for iPhoneWhile it won’t impress today’s kids who grew up on Madden NFL, this will be a familiar sight to those of us who grew up in the 70s/80s. It’s an updated version of the LED football handheld we all knew and loved. It’s up at the AppStore.

Some new features include running, kicking, punts, field goals and passing. You won’t even have to worry about wear to the plastic buttons or buying a new 9 volt battery. With Passing you have total offense. This is how football was played once upon a time, as blips on a screen.

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2008

Fake calls on your iPhoneHere’s one useful app that can be had for just $1. Fake Calls does just what it sounds like, it lets your iPhone simulate receiving a phone call shortly after launching the app. The best part is you can set the name of the caller as anyone you want. “Oh excuse me I have to take this call from Steve Jobs. He’s having trouble thinking up new ‘i’ names.” Hey, why not. We’re talking $1 here. Help prop up the economy.

Facebook passes on the T-Mobile G1

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on October 23rd, 2008

Facebook passes on the T-Mobile G1In a surprising move, Facebook won’t be creating an application to run on T-Mobile’s G1 Android-powered smartphone, even though it is available for the iPhone and BlackBerry. Considering this, Facebook fans who are in the market for a new phone will probably pass on the G1.

Facebook commented that Google or another third party will have to develop the application for them, as they don’t want to dedicate any resources toward developing an app for Android. If you want to take a paranoid look at the situation, consider this. Facebook is ad-served and invested in by Microsoft. Make of that what you will, but just because your paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t out to deny you a phone app.

Obama rocks the iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on October 2nd, 2008

Obama rocks the iPhoneThe Vice Presidential debate this evening will take place in about a half hour. Earlier Obama for America announced the release of Obama ‘08: The Official Application for iPhone and iPod touch. Much like the USB bracelet we told you about, it’s another way to connect with the candidate. The app is free and is available for download now. The app makes it easier for Obama volunteers to get involved by making calls on the candidate’s behalf.

You’ll also get news updates, news coverage, local events, media from the campaign trail, and of course Obama’s and Biden’s stance on “essential issues facing Americans.” I’m interested to see what kind of affect this has on election results as I don’t see anything like this coming from McCain’s camp. It makes it clear that the youth/tech savvy vote is Obama’s. And he’s making it easy for them to get more involved. McCain may take credit for the Blackberry, but good luck getting an email from him anytime soon. I’m pretty sure his phone still has a rotary dial.

Sonic Lighter app for iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on September 17th, 2008

Sonic Lighter app for iPhoneSonic Lighter is a new app from Smule that let’s you flick your Bic, so to speak. It gives yoyr iPhone a simulated flame that you can control by touch or tilt. Start the display and light your fire. If you like, breathe on the device to control or extinguish the flicker. Just be careful others are not laughing at you nearby. I know what you’re thinking. All this for 99 cents? Freakin amazing right?

But it is capable of so much more. Like, if you find yourself without a lighter during a concert for instance. And because it contains a sonic modem that lets you ignite nearby Smule-enabled phones, you could “spread your light” and maybe really liven up said concert. Smule even has a nifty World Wide Ignition Map that traces recently lit flames around the globe. Cheesy? You bet ya. Now if it detected farts jettisoned out of your Levi’s and ignited nearby flames accordingly, I’d be impressed. It doesn’t take much really. Just innovate a little. C’mon people. Check out a video below.

iBeer: Great taste, less filling
What’s better then the new iPhone? Two things actually: An iPhone from the future and a nice cold beer. Now you can combine your love of brew with your iPhone love thanks to this neat app that uses the iPhone’s tilt sensor to simulate you drinking it down as you raise it to your lips.

Just don’t lick your lips and slam it down on the table like a mug. You paid a lot for that thing. iBeer can be found at iTunes for $2.99. They also have iMilk for some reason. Check out a video below.

iPhone soon to control unmanned military aircraft

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 20th, 2008

iPhone soon to control unmanned military aircraftiPhones will now control aircrafts from the ground, thanks to some geeky iPhone app developers. Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley have apparently broken Apple’s terms and conditions when they used the iPhone to guide unmanned aircraft. The Apple Software Developer Kit agreement states that the applications are not to be designed or marketed for automatic or autonomous control of aircraft.

Too late now. And why would they care anyway, they’re having way too much fun. The team uses Mobile Safari to input coordinates and then selects tasks for the unmanned flight that are relayed to the aircraft through a web server. Check out the video below.

iAno app turns Your iPhone into a piano
First there was the pocket guitar app that turned your iPhone into a guitar, now the iAno iPhone app that turns your cellphone into a piano. It won’t be long before iPhone users will be able to meet up in their mother’s basements and play an actual gig. Check out the video after the jump..

iAno will install on Jailbroken iPhones and basically gives you a fully functioning multitouch piano in the form of a four-octave keyboard. The arrow keys at the top are used to navigate. It was developed by one Mr Aardvark, who gave it polyphonic sound that allows five key presses to be heard simultaneously. He plans on updating iAno with a complete 88-key keyboard, and other cool features. So whether you want to be the next Elton John or Barry Manillow, carry your piano with you.

Let your iPhone track your power usage
If you’ve been longing to turn your iPhone into a more useful gadget, and using it for something other than just making calls, this is for you. Current State software, will allow your iPhone to monitor the power usage and energy waste of your entire house.

It allows your iPhone to turn power plugs on and off, activate timers and keep track of everything. All you need to do is to install plug-ends on power sockets and sync to your iPhone.
