I got a chance to look at the brand new version of LockInfo a bit early so I've put together my thoughts for you guys to check out while you (im)patiently wait for the public release.
For those of you that don't know, LockInfo is a great little jailbreak app that makes up for the poor (read: lack of) notification system Apple has left us with under iOS. I wrote a LockInfo setup and walkthrough a while back and now we're going to look at the newest version of LockInfo by David Ashman.
With Notability for iPad, Ginger Labs has a great app for note taking, especially if you are a student. Inevitably you will need to take notes on your iPad at some point, right? With so many other note taking apps out there another app has entered the ring, Notability also has some unique features that make them stand out from the rest. First, the basics.
Complete feature guide to Apple's iOS 4.3 software beta for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
iOS 4.3 has just come out in beta with a rumored release date anywhere from February 10 (the Verizon iPhone release date) to March, 2011, and new features like Wi-Fi personal hotspot for iPhone and multitouch navigation gestures for iPad.
If you want a quick look at the new software but don't have a lot of time, check out the video above for everything you need to know about iOS 4.3 in just 5 minutes. For a more in-depth iOS 4.3 guide, read on after the break.
Note: We're combining iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad walkthroughs below since, post iOS 4.2 grand-unification the size of the updates are roughly similar. If it gets more complicated later, we'll split iPhone/iPod touch out from iPad like last time.
Here we go, everything you need to know about iOS 4.3 for iPhone and iPad in just 5 minutes -- orientation lock/mute switch toggle, multitouch navigation gestures, and Wi-Fi personal hotspot.
If you don't have a lot of time but do have a lot of curiosity, just hit the video up top, sit back and watch, and then let us know what you think in the comment below.
Note: If you're running iOS 4.3 and you can't get the multitouch gestures to work, try connecting to Xcode and hitting the "use this device for development" link. That should make the toggle pop up in Settings.
Now iPhone will be getting those gestures and iPad that hotspot... right?
Garmin just released StreetPilot for iPhone, the newest addition to their mobile line-up of GPS apps. The app boasts a lot of the same features nüvi owners already enjoy. StreetPilot has up to date map support for both the US and Canada. All maps and directions are pulled from Garmin's servers so you can expect the same quality directions as a native GPS unit. Since maps are pulled from the server, the app only takes up around 7 MB of space on your phone. Hit the jump for a few initial impressions, some screens, and a list of features.
Ampkit is a guitar rig emulation app available for both iPhone and iPad. For this review, I was using the Ampkit+ iPad version and had access to all the extra add-ons and packages. It's worth noting there is a free version of the app as well. Hardware wise, you'll need to pick up the Ampkit LiNK in order to connect your guitar to your iPad or iPhone, available for $39.99. This is similar to the same process as Amplitube 2 and the iRig which I took a look at earlier this month.

Everyone has been eagerly awaiting Infinity Blade's introduction to the App Store, and with it, a promised new era of iOS gaming.

Let's take a look at this game a little more in-depth to find out.
This week I took at look at Peak Meetings HD for iPad and so far, I like what I see. I mean, meetings, meetings, meetings. There has to be a good way to capture meeting information on iPad, right? Sure you can just type your notes out, but wouldn't be great if you could use templates for your meetings? How about have them in an organized format?
The Nite Ize Crocs o-dial Case for iPhone is the case for Croc-lovers and if that's you it just might be the best thing you've ever seen. If you are way past the Croc wave, however, then this may look more like an accessory abortion. Either way, pro or con, this case is going to be so divisive that I just had to review -- and see it in person. Epic or train wreck? Follow on after the break to find out!
