Send in the iClones: BlackBerry App Store Edition

Send in the iClones: BlackBerry App Store Edition

Our public frenemy number 1, CrackBerry Kevin, tipped us to RIM revealing details of their latest "innovation", the BlackBerry App Store (and no, we're not jaded that the company that once said touchscreens were a non-starter is now high-five'ing themselves silly over winning the self-awarded "breakthrough" prize for the Storm's SurePress at Mobile World Congress -- iSigh).

Should Apple Add Genius Recommendations to the App Store?

Should Apple Add Genius Recommendations to the App Store?

We mentioned this thought in passing alongside Dieter's report on the Nokia App Ovi Store, which he says has far, far better discoverability than the iTunes App Store:

What Nokia has done is build a sophisticated relevancy engine that can sort apps based on a variety of factors that are actually relevant to you — like what you friends are using, or what kind of app you like to download, or what music you tend to prefer. It looks to be much better than your standard “top 50″ list

Apple iPhone Email Highlight Apps

Apple iPhone Email Highlight Apps

We get it: Apps are the new Internet. If the recent TV commercials weren't hint enough, if redesigning the Apple Stores to put them front-and-center wasn't crystal clear, Apple has sent out an email reminding us that the iPhone Apps, they are good!

Over 15,000 (20,000 but most counts), Apple focuses on ZAGAT TO GO, Flick Bowling, Allrecipes.com, Weightbot, and iHandy Level.

How To: Share Multiple Files with MobileMe

How you doing, MobileMe? For weeks, months even, you don't call, you don't write, then Microsoft's My Phone moves into the fixer-upper down the street, and Google Sync starts to cozy up to us, and now you're back with the 3rd news item in just over a week?

Verizon: We're Getting 4G LTE Too! Can Haz ur iPhonez?

Verizon: We're Getting 4G LTE Too! Can Haz ur iPhonez?

You've told us and told us you want the iPhone on Verizon. There's two reasons that hasn't happened already. AT&T has exclusive rights in the US (Verizon, stupidly, turned down the iPhone initially), and the iPhone is a GSM device while Verizon runs a CDMA network (think Mac vs. PC). And, hey, Sprint can't even get simultaneous voice and data going on the Pre with CDMA/EVDO, okay?

Eyes On: Sygic Turn By Turn GPS App for iPhone

Eyes On: Sygic Turn By Turn GPS App for iPhone

There you see it, folks, a real live native iPhone app that provides turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, maps stored in-memory instead of streamed from the internet, the whole nine yards.

Working off a tip/reminder from antonioj (thanks!), I scurried off to the TeleAtlas booth at the close day here at MWC to visit Sygic, a company that makes (you guessed it) downloadable GPS apps for smartphones and PDAs. They had promised a demo of their iPhone app at MWC09 and, well, they delivered.

DocsToGo Demo'd on the iPhone!

DocsToGo Demo'd on the iPhone!

What's that? iPhone news at MWC09? It's true. I just got back from a meeting with DocsToGo and they showed off an early version of their app. So far Word document editing is a go, Spreadsheet editing is definitely in the plan but not quite up and running yet. They're tossing in document viewing for both plus PDFs as well -- which means you can have all of your documents in one spot.

Read on to find out how it all works, where the iPhone kinks are (since Apple limits what developers can do easily), and how we're loving their implementation of (in-app) Cut and Paste!

Origins of iPhone Multi-Touch... the Piano?!

Origins of iPhone Multi-Touch... the Piano?!

We know the score. Apple now holds a veritable smorgasbord of multi-touch patents, some dating way back before the iPhone, and some coming from their 2005 acquisition of a company called Fingerworks, and the innovative talents of Wayne Westerman and John Elias. But from whence did they draw their inspiration? MacRumors pulls the relevant quote from a University of Delware article:

Dear Apple: Please Steal Features From Nokia's Ovi Store

Dear Apple: Please Steal Features From Nokia's Ovi Store

If you haven't heard, Apple's a no-show here at Mobile World Congress 2009, this show pretty much belongs to Microsoft, HTC, and Nokia (with a side of Samsung and Sony Ericsson). However, as with other trade shows like CES and CTIA, Apple's presence is felt in its absence. Rather than join their brethren in the mobile community, Apple sits it out and watches while other companies are forced to make their announcements in a context Apple has created. To wit: Both Microsoft and Nokia announced App Stores this week. Microsoft's Market is basically a no-show, though, all we have is promises. Nokia's isn't ready yet either, but it will be in May.

Surprise: Apple Loves Steve Jobs and the iPhone

Glassdoor collects data on how much employees love their boss and love their products. They also seem to collect data on the wicked obvious, at least where Apple is concerned. Flabbergasting: 91% of employees love Steve Jobs and on a scale of 1 to 5, think Apple's products rate a 3.8 (we're guessing MobileMe cost them a full point there).

Universal Charger Initiative Announced... Absent iPhone

Universal Charger Initiative Announced... Absent iPhone

No sooner did we ask you if Apple should ditch the dock, than Apple Insider reports that the mobile phone and smartphone industries are beginning to come together on a universal charging solution, and that solution is micro-USB.

So far, early signees for the 2012 initiative include AT&T, LG, Motorola, Nokia, Orange, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, T-Mobile, and Vodafone. Several iPhone carriers there, but not the single iPhone creator, Apple.
