Patent Watch: iPhone Audio Sensor for Ringtones

Apple Insider brings word that Apple has filed a patent for:

an ambient sound sensor to the iPhone that would allow the handset to adjust its ringtone volume to its surrounding audio environment, which would ameliorate potentially-disruptive audio outputs.

Sounds nifty! In addition, Apple has also filed for a patent for self-cleansing audio jacks:

Apple Defuses iPhone nano Rumors?

Apple Defuses iPhone nano Rumors?

Also touched on briefly during Apple's Q1 conference call yesterday was the prospect of a low-end iPhone, and Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook was quick to dispel hopes of that (and of an iPhone nano?) as well (text via Macworld):

Tim: We're not going to build a low-end voice phone. Our objective is not to be unit share leader, it's to build the world's best phone.

Quick App: Black Out for the iPhone

Quick App: Black Out for the iPhone

Black Out by 1026 Development is an iPhone homage to the classic Tiger handheld puzzle game, where your goal is to turn all the lights off, even as every light to touch switches all the lights around it. Why Black Out and why for the iPhone? Said developer Jeremy Curcio:

I loved the handheld game and was cleaning out my attic when I saw it sitting there. I then realized how smoothly it would port to the iPhone platform. That day I started writing this app. I'm really proud of how it turned out, and I think many others will enjoy it as well.

Clippy: Another Jailbreak Cut/Copy and Paste App

Clippy: Another Jailbreak Cut/Copy and Paste App

Well here is yet one more attempt to get cut/copy and paste going via a Jailbroken app from iSpazio. Clippy inserts two buttons into the iPhone system keyboard, one for copying and the other for pasting. One major gripe is that it only accepts user-entered text. So there is no copying any text from web sites or emails, etc...

Inaugural Wall Paper for the iPhone

Inaugural Wall Paper for the iPhone

The UI wizards at Gx5 have been a favorite of mine since they saved my old Treo 680 from the Garnet-uglies back in the day. So, when sibling-site leader, TreoCentral's own Jennifer was kind enough to forward us news from Gx5 that they had whipped up some iPhone (and iPod touch) optimized Obama wallpapers just in time for the Inauguration, we figured we'd pass it on to you, our readers, as well.

Forum Review: Monopoly - Here and Now Edition for the iPhone

Forum Review: Monopoly - Here and Now Edition for the iPhone

Monopoly - Here and Now Edition Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Monopoly is a classic game, and it was just a matter of time until it appeared on the iPhone. I remember playing this in the summers with my sister when we were out of school. We would get games that lasted months as we would finally run out of money in the bank!

So finally Monopoly comes to the iPhone! The game is visually appealing, and is based on the Monopoly: Here and Now version with updated locations, dollars amount, and random cards. There is a lot of animation in the game, including rolling the dice, moving the pieces, and various cut scenes while running the app. That graphics are nicely done, and there was only a little stutter now and then with the animation sequences.

Send in the iClones! Windows Mobile 6.5 Services Edition!

Welcome to 2009, where Microsoft will -- at some point later this year or next -- release versions of what Apple released in 2008!

Our frenemies over at WMExperts have the details, and we have the snide remarks:

  • SkyMarket looks to be the App Store done Microsoft's way. Does that mean each app will ship in Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Really Professional, Ultimate, and 8 more server SKU's?
