iPhone Skype App Going 3G: "Real Soon"

For those of you holding your breath for Skype to work over AT&T's 3G network, you will soon be able to relax as Skype has told TiPb it's only a matter of time. From their blog:

<

blockquote>You may have seen other apps offering calls over 3G, but we’re holding ours back for a little bit longer. Why? So that we can give you the very best audio quality we can. When our 3G-capable Skype for iPhone app is released, it’ll let you make calls in wideband audio, giving you greater clarity and fidelity – because that’s what you expect from Skype.

We've been waiting since way back in November, when AT&T decided to allow VoIP over their 3G network, and Apple's iPhone 3.2 SDK for iPad has now removed the last hurdle.

It's no surprise we heard earlier that AT&T has been working with Apple to improve their network before the release of the highly anticipated Apple iPad. Perfect timing don't you think?

More from Skype via video, after the break!

Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch, and soon... iPad!) related, they're fair game.

Confession: in all the iPad hubbub last week, Rene didn't get around to posting everyone's pick. Bright side, you get almost twice as many this week!

So who's on deck this double-dose and what are our picks? Find out after the break!

Quick App: Cookmate Recipe Finder for iPhone

Cookmate made by Tapmates [$1.99 - iTunes Link] for iPhone and iPod touch lets you tell it what you already have in your pantry and then finds you a recipe to use it.

The graphics are so beautifully rendered and the interface so user-friendly it makes choosing what to cook for dinner much less stressful. In fact, it's so easy that I even allow my 4 year old to help out.

Cookmate includes a grocery list that you can use to add and later check off any ingredient or items you may be missing.

There is also a user-based rating system for each recipe. On the downside, that means that if no one likes the high-rated meal you prepared, it is probably not the recipe but your cooking. ;)

Video after the break. If you try it, let us know what you think!

Major Textbook Publishers Sign with ScrollMotion to get on iPad

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that publishers, McGraw-Hill Cos, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt K-12, Pearson Education, and Kaplan Inc., have signed with ScrollMotion to adapt their textbooks for Apple's new iPad tablet.

Though Apple didn't outline its strategy to target the educational sector with its iPad last week, people familiar with Apple's thinking have said that the iPad's use in schools was one of the focal points of discussions in developing the product. In its exploration of electronic book technology, it thought particularly about how it could re-invent textbooks, these people said. Apple declined to comment on the role of textbooks on the iPad. Apple has an edge in the educational sector becauseits Macintosh computers have always enjoyed a strong following in the academic sphere, and it already offers educational audio and video content through its iTunes U service.

Citrix Will Enable Remote Windows 7 Access for iPad

Remote access wizards Citrix have announced that they're getting ready to make Apple's just-announced iPad a fairly awesome thin client for IT types eager to connect to their bigger Windows 7 boxes (and hopefully Linux and others as well.)

It turns out the 9.7 inch display on the iPad with a 1024x768 screen resolution works great for a full VDI XenDesktop. Windows applications run unmodified and securely in the data center, and even multiple applications at once.

Will Apple's iPad Get Jailbroken and How Long Will it Take?

When Apple announced the iPad last week, TiPb's email quickly filled up with readers and forum members who wondered if it would be possible to jailbreak it and, if so, how long it would take? First, it's important to remember that, while we're all excited, the iPad doesn't even ship until March at the earliest, so it is pure speculation at this point. We do hope the likes of the iPhone Dev-Team and/or Geohot will try their hardest to get it accomplished and that it will only be a matter of time.
