Where Did All the iPhone WebApps Go?

Sure, there are still plenty around -- plenty of good ones even -- but back before the App Store, before Apple released the iPhone SDK, WebApps were the development platform for the miraculous new mobile wireless platform.

Apple Releases iPhone SDK 2.2.1

As revealed by Craig Hockenberry on Twitter shortly after today's iPhone OS 2.2.1 update: developers hadn't heard a whisper of this release, no beta, not even a warning, and it wasn't compatible with the previous SDK. Nice, Apple!

It should come as some relief, then, that the iPhone SDK has now also been bumped to 2.2.1. Says Ars Technica's Erica Sadun:

No, it's not running our favorite frenemy OS, the pushy little BlackBerry JavaME, it's a new app pending approval in the App Store -- Cracked LCD, specifically -- and TiPb member the_idol was kind enough to share this advance peek at it in our forums:

read the above-linked thread for all the details, and enjoy the video -- and the prank'ish fun it might just give you later.

Forum Review: Illuminations for the iPhone

Illuminations Forum Review by msbaylor. (Visit the thread for video and more pics. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Illuminations is developed by Killer Robots and is an interesting shoot-em-up type game. It is based around the idea of a firework show. You have to shoot rockets that come up from the bottom of the screen in order to make them explode, if you miss too many, then the show is over for you. You also might find enemies that might spawn at random to keep you from “giving a good show,” these also must be eliminated (and added to the show).

Emoji Emoticons Enabled for All by frostyplace App!

The inimitable iJustine has tastily blog snacked about an App Store goodie named frostyplace (iTunes / $0.99), a Japanese RSS reader that by-the-way works around the iPhone's limitation of only allowing Emoji (the massive emoticon collection used in Japan that adds to smiley face things like panda bear, train station, and mountain) on it's official Japanese carrier.

Quick App: Get iJiggles-y with the iPhone

It seems the iPhone, with its OpenGL and CoreGraphics/CoreAnimation is just begging for some body distortion. We've seen it before (and seen it get rejected before), and it just keeps getting more fully featured. Says the developer, Smells Like Donkey:

everyone assumes that iJiggles is strictly a boob app. It is of course the first thing everyone does with it and it does it well, but it's designed so you can have fun with it on any picture.

Indeed, version 1.1 will include: Smoother and Faster Animations, new "Inflate" feature to further enhance parts of your photos, multitouch interactivity, saving and loading.

Gallery after the break.

(And BTW- TiPb is still waiting for the ladies to get a little pay back with these apps. Maybe in our Forums?)

Quick App: RepairPal for the iPhone

RepairPal, from the website of the same name, leverages the power and convenience of the iPhone to provide highly targeted -- and at times vitally important -- information when and where you need it. Say the developers:

We made this application because it addresses the real world disconnect with auto repair. Many times when your car needs repair, you aren't at the computer. People may end up at an unfamiliar shop in an unfamiliar town so they need something to reassure them that they are not getting ripped off.

We built this for the iPhone because we need to convey a lot of information to the user. Development tools for iPhone allowed us to build an application that is easy to navigate and provide the best user experience. Being able to take advantage of features like GPS makes a lot of sense for our application since people may not always be sure of their location when they are broken down on the side of the highway.

Looking for some repair work? Give this FREE app a try and let us know how it works for you!

Quick App: Air Mouse 1.5 for iPhone

Chad reviewed Air Mouse a while back, and now they've let us know they're back with a 1.5 update that adds some nifty new features, including:

the computer notifies Air Mouse as to which app it's currently running so that Air Mouse can show the correct keys for that app. We plan to make more use of this system in future versions and think that this is the directions that all remotes will be heading in the future.
