ToDo for iPhone Updated to support local notifications and much, much more...

ToDo for iPhone by Appigo has long been one of my favorite productivity apps.  I've been desperately waiting to see this app updated mainly with support for local notifications.  The fact that you'd have to open the app in order to update the badge was somewhat irritating.  It's part of the reason I switched back to Evernote.

Not only does ToDo now support local notifications, it's been updated with complete multitasking support as well as high resolution graphics for the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th gen.  It also supports password protection and adding multiple alerts for tasks.  I've noticed the app overall is a lot more responsive as well.

Updated: Roku [and TiVo] getting Hulu Plus, can Apple TV have it too?

Looks like Hulu Plus will be coming to Apple TV competitor Roku. There's already a Hulu Plus app for Apple's iPad, and while my deepest, darkest wish is that it will support AirPlay to beam content straight to Apple TV, past history (and its use of non-standard video controls) make me think it won't. And hey, even if by some miracle it does, just like Apple TV has built-in Netflix support, built-in support for Hulu Plus would be huge (no need to waste iPad resources and Wi-Fi bandwidth).

Apple TV firmware contains FaceTime, Remote DVD, Bluetooth code?

Since Apple made the Apple TV iOS 4.1 firmware available on their website, developers and hackers alike have been scouring through with a fine toothed comb. What they have found so far is quite interesting - Facetime may be coming to Apple TV via your iPhone 4 using AirPlay, there could be DVD remote support, and the device does contain bluetooth code.

Apple releases Remote 2.0 for iPhone and iPad

Apple has finally updated their Remote app to version 2.0, and included support for iPad 4 and iPod touch 4 Retina Display, and for the iPad. It will also support shared libraries for iTunes and, of course, the new Apple TV (2010) that's just started to hit the streets. AirPlay is also supported, currently for what was previously AirTunes, and no doubt for full on iOS 4.2 video goodness when that's released as well.

if iPhone 4 is version 3,1, what are 3,2 and 3,3?

iPhone 4's internal version is 3,1, so what then are the iPhone 3,2 and iPhone 3,3 versions referenced in the just-posted Apple TV iOS firmware? Seth Weintraub from 9to5Mac speculates:

Verizon? Sprint? China Mobile? T-Mobile? Antennas? All very good questions. No answers yet.

To put things in context, the original iPhone 2G was iPhone 1,1, iPhone 3G was iPhone 1,2 and iPhone 3GS was 2,1. So we're looking at the difference between iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G, which mainly consisted of a new shell and new 3G radio, not the completely revved up guts the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 got.

Apple TV iOS 4.1 firmware posted, susceptible to Jailbreak

Using a publicly released version of the Apple TV iOS 4.1 firmware, the Dev-Team has decrypted its keys, the first step necessary to a Jailbreak, which could very well be on its way. That's less than 24 hours after the iPod Touch 4G fell victim to the same SHAtter exploit.

UPDATE #1: It’s looking like SHAtter is going to be the gift that keeps on giving. Even though the new AppleTV isn’t yet in people’s homes, the firmware is available on Apple’s normal public distribution servers and SHAtter has been used to decrypt its keys!

Cydia apps? 1080p output? At this point anything seems possible.

Official Google Voice app coming soon, already approved by Apple?

Apple has already approved the official Google Voice App for the iPhone, according to a post over at TechCrunch:

We’ve gotten word that the official Google Voice application is on its way to the iPhone in the next few weeks. In fact, we’ve heard from a source close to Google that it’s already been approved — Google just needs to revamp the application to work with the iPhone 4 and iOS’s multitasking capabilities. If you’re a Google Voice user and you’re on an iPhone, this is great news.

BlackBerry PlayBook ships in 2011, competition for iPad 2 (and iOS 5?)

I got the BlackBerry PlayBook announcement up as fast as we could, so fast I missed out that it's only shipping in 2011. That means it's not really competition for the current iPad at all, but competition for iPad 2, which Apple will likely announce in January 2011 and ship in March/April. And that's a while different story.

BlackBerry announces 7-inch PlayBook tablet, iPad competition heats up

RIM has just announced their iPad tablet competitor, the BlackBerry PlayBook. They're marketing it as the world's first professional table and the specs look great, almost as though it was specifically designed to counter-program the iPad:

  • 7-inch screen
  • 1GHz dual-core processor (or is it 2GHz Cortex A9?)
  • 1080p video with HDMI out
  • Front and rear cameras
  • HMTL5 and Flash 10.1
  • BES support (of course)
  • Up to 1GB of RAM (?)
  • Built on QNX OS

Check out the video after the break and CrackBerry.com via the link below for ongoing coverage straight from Dev Con, and let us know what you think. Is Apple finally in trouble in the very space they created?
