iPhone 4 FaceTime will not use carrier minutes

Even though Wi-Fi is required to use FaceTime, because it can be initiated from a voice call it was unclear if it would also use minutes from your voice plan. Apple has confirmed with Business Insider that "the voice call ends as soon as the FaceTime call connects," so it will not cost you voice minutes to use FaceTime.

iOS 4 Jailbreak

is there a Jailbreak for iOS 4?

iOS 4 Jailbreak is another question that just won't stop flooding our mailboxes today. Previous versions of iOS 4 beta up to and including the GM have gotten various states of Jailbreak thanks to the efforts of the iPhone Dev Team. Will the final release version work with current Jailbreaks? Will it work on iPhone 4 hardware?

UPDATE 1: The Dev Team has posted that they're working on it but it will take some time (obviously).

We are working hard on a release to our tools that will jailbreak your device (or give you iOS 4 via the jailbreak train) and provide you with a carrier unlock.

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]

Video interview from WWDC 2010 after the break...
