Ultrasn0w has been updated by the Dev Team to include support for unlocking iOS 4.3.2. So if you've been holding off on upgrading and waiting patiently (or impatiently) for an unlock, you can now have your cake and eat it too!

Developer Spotlight: James Thomson of TLA Systems

TiPb's developer spotlights are like DVD/iTunes Extras for the App Store -- a weekly look behind the scenes at the programers and designers that bring you the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps and games you love. This week Rene talks with James Thomson of TLA Systems, and PCalc fame.

What's your name? James Thomson

What's your company called? TLA Systems - and yes, that does stand for "Three Letter Acronym". It was originally a fake company name I made up with friends to get us into trade shows while we were still students. I kept using it, and now it's a real company employing myself and my wife.

Where are you located? We're based in my native Glasgow, on the west coast of Scotland. It can be a bit dark, cold, and wet, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else - you need the dark to appreciate the light.

What's your website address? http://www.tla-systems.co.uk/ and http://www.pcalc.com/

What's your Twitter handle? I'm @jamesthomson - that's my personal account, but I tend to use it for work too.

What are some of your apps? Our main app on iOS is the scientific calculator PCalc, which is in turn based on PCalc for Mac OS X. We're also known for DragThing, the dock app that pre-dates Mac OS X.

What other apps do you currently like? NanoStudio is great for writing music on the move - it's more powerful than GarageBand in many ways, and runs on my phone. I'm not really a musician, but I do enjoy tinkering. Shazam still seems like magic to me - it's invaluable for identifying background music on TV and in shops. RedLaser is the best app I've come across for barcode and QR code scanning. The Chambers Dictionary and The Chambers Thesaurus apps are also both very good. I'm also still playing Game Dev Story - it's a game all developers and journalists should play!

Can’t be bothered to mow the lawn? The My Automower app can help with that!

Sunday is often the day you mow the lawn, with a new app called My Automower it could all become a lot less of a chore. My Automower is an app that allows you to control your lawn mower using your iPhone. The downside however is that you need a specific robotic mower from Husqvarna for this to be of any use. Once you have one of those, this little app is very clever.
