Bjango talks Consume for iPad, iStat, and designing for iOS - TiPb at WWDC 2010

Marc Edwards from Bjango talks about bringing Phases and Consume to the iPad (and their other apps like iStat in the future).

Consume presents an easy, drop-dead-gorgeous way to track everything from mobile accounts to broadband accounts to loyalty cards to deliveries. Consume pulls data from the cloud so they can update it with new "recipes" for various providers as it becomes available. Consume for iPad takes the same core functionality and paints it across the big screen, using Apple's conventions like popovers but redrawn in a distinctive Bjango way. Likewise, CoreAnimation is used give a unique visual flare to transitions.

In general, Edwards loves the iPad -- it's bigger and more powerful. Where the iPhone is deep (hierarchical layers of screens) the iPad is broad and allows for a lot more information to be show at once. A lot of what they learned making Consume is being used to bring iStat to the iPad, and what they learn from the iPad is being fed back into their iPhone development.

We're glad to hear that because we're eagerly waiting for all of them.

Phases for iPad is available now [iTunes], Consume for iPad is pending [teaser], and iStat is in development.

Bjango's full range of iPhone apps include iStat, Consume (currently free), Darkness, Phases, Beats, Cities, Kapowie, Jobs, and Matches [iTunes]

iPhone 4 pre-orders now shipping

Apple iPhone 4 shipment notifications are now being sent out to those who managed to get their pre-orders in last Tuesday. (Those that were previously prepared for shipment and not randomly canceled we gather...)

They say for delivery June 23, though from past experience we're betting Apple puts a hold on them until launch day, June 24.

Did you get your shipping notice? Let us know in comments.

[Thanks Marcus!]

Some iPhone 4 orders prepared to ship, others getting cancelled?

Good news and bad news time -- readers are letting us know they're starting to get their "prepared for shipment" notifications from Apple, but others are getting order cancelations.

You can see the prepared for shipment notice up top. The cancelation is after the break and appears linked to a failure to authorize. There's a theory going around that this has to do with people who, during the great order frak-up of 2010, ended up hitting the "submit" button multiple times, and these are just the extra phones being cancelled, but who knows at this point?

If you've gotten an notification from Apple or AT&T, let us know in the comments.

[Thanks to everyone who sent these in, including Darren and David. Additional info via Gizmodo]

Happy birthday iPhone 3GS

A year ago today many of us were standing in line outside our local Apple Store waiting to get our geeky little hands on the iPhone 3GS, then king of the mobile space. Twice the speed, video recording, and VoiceControl were the killer features, even if the form factor was unchanged.
