On-device iPad App Store goes international

Overnight Apple began enabling the on-device iPad App Store for international users. That is to say, it no longer spits up the dreaded "the App Store is not supported in your country" error and actually renders the WebKit storefront now. It's still a bit of a work in progress with iPhone apps hard to distinguish from iPad specific ones off the main featured page, but it's a huge step forward.

BeejiveIM now available for iPad

The popular IM client BeejiveIM is now available on iPad. It offers much of the same functionality of it's iPhone cousin, but really takes advantage of the iPad screen real estate. Here are the key features that BeejiveIM boasts to bring:

  • Reliable and efficient networking: be connected 24/7, and it's gentle on your battery
  • Be connected even after you close the application. Get notified instantly when you get a new message with push notifications
  • Works with multiple IM networks, multiple accounts per network: AIM/iChat, MSN, Yahoo, GoogleTalk, Facebook IM, ICQ, Jabber, and MySpace IM
  • Send and receive files, including pictures and voice notes. View and forward received documents.
  • Desktop-like instant messaging with all of your IM buddies from a single intuitive user interface.

I have spent a little time with BeejiveIM for iPad and I find the experience to be wonderful. The UI is strait forward and the app is very stable. Notifications come in quickly as well. I dare say that BeejiveIM offers the best IM experience currently available on the iPad.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think!

[$5.99 - iTunes link]

iPhone OS 4 beta 4 reveals future iPod and iPad camera flash

It was only a matter of time that developers searched through the latest iPhone OS 4 beta to find secret goodies and this time we see that the next generations of the iPod and iPad both may receive a LED camera flash (which we guess also presupposes they're receive cameras, right?). The code is as follows:

FLASH_DISABLED_iPad = "The iPad needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";

FLASH_DISABLED_iPod = "The iPod needs to cool down before you can use the flash.";

iPhone OS 4 beta 4: New wallpapers galore!

With iPhone OS 4 beta 4 Apple has brought over some of the iPad wallpapers and introduced a few new ones, all seemingly focused on livening up the home screen without being too visually distracting. Natural textures and muted patterns get an obvious focus here with stones, rocks, and textiles front and center.

And yes, you can still set backgrounds independently for the lock screen and home screen.
