And TiPb's iPhone 4 give-away goes to...

We asked you to show us why TiPb should give you an iPhone 4 (technically a gift-certificate for the US Apple Retail Store in the amount of $499) and boy did you show us. You made it so tough for me to pick a winner, I didn't even try -- I recused myself and made the folks at SPE do it for me (sorry, I love you all too much, I would have gone all Oprah, given the to everyone, and gotten fired).

SPE did pick a winner, however. And we're going to announce who it is, who's getting the iPhone 4 -- and the surprise twist we also came up with! -- after the break!

iOS 4 updated: Dropbox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack, more

Not only has Apple released iTunes 9.2 to the masses, they seem to be approving and releasing apps updated for iOS 4 compatibility now as well. If you haven't checked your updates tab in a while, it may be time to tap that App Store icon on your iPhone or check in iTunes.

Out of my 100 or so apps I have installed on my 3GS, I've seen about 4 or so apps in the past 12 hours receive updates for iOS 4 compatibility. I'm assuming that number will only grow over the next couple of days as developers ready themselves for the release of iOS 4. Now that doesn't mean they have any iOS 4 specific features -- it just means they've been compiled with the iOS 4 SDK.

Some apps will have much more significant updates than others of course. So far I've seen updates for apps such as DropBox, Quota, Fandango, FlightTrack and a few others. Quota is touting the fact that it's supporting the higher resolution of the iPhone 4 in its update straight away. I'm curious to see which other developers will do this straight out of the gate. I hope most do as I can't wait to run higher resolution applications on my new iPhone 4!

Streaming music, navigation/location, or VoIP (voice over IP) app in the background are some of the big ones of course. Saving state for fast task switching is something we hope is also rolled out quickly and universally.

Hit the break for some screenshots of some I've found as well as a video from one of our readers demonstrating the in-app SMS feature Apple has given developers and API for. Thanks Ethan! Any of you find any apps that are running iSO 4 compatibility yet? Leave 'em in the comments!!

Working Flash on iPhone and iPod touch?

We all know Flash isn't going to come from Apple, but it appears the man responsible for the Spirit Jailbreak may also have gotten Flash up and running on the iPhone and iPod Touch anyway. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if and when a capability like this is released, you'd have to be jailbroken in order to use it.

This appears to be a very early release but it still shows potential for those who really want/need Flash on their iOS devices.  Perhaps an iPad release would follow shortly?  Any iPhone or iPod Touch users out there who would jailbreak just in order to get Flash?  Real or fake? Hit the jump for a video.

iTunes Connect Mobile now in App Store

Apple recently released iTunes Connect Mobile [Free - iTunes Link] which allows registered developers to track app sales and trends.  The app is available via the App Store now and is a free download.  For developers, this provides an extremely easy way to not only check sales numbers but to see trends on the go.

Simply log in and you'll get a nice layout that shows you not only your total sales but a breakdown of sales by application. From what I understand, you can see either daily or weekly totals as of right now. As we are currently working on applications and haven't released any yet, I don't see any breakdowns.  Any developers have any feedback on the breakdown or things you'd like to see in an update?

I think another really neat app idea would be if Apple released an app that let regular users see purchased app histories and showed totals of all iPhone/iPad apps they've purchased, as well as a monthly breakdown of what they're buying.  It would be interesting how much users spend on apps in total.  After 3 years of using an iPhone, I'd be nervous to see how much I've actually spent on apps.  Hit the break for some screenshots!
