How to switch from webOS to iPhone and iPad

While HP may not have killed webOS when it cancelled webOS hardware, it certainly stuck the knife in it and twister really, really hard -- and every webOS user, Palm loyalist, and PreCentral.net reader felt it. Some might choose to stick with it, to see if HP's incompetence can somehow be turned around by a forward thinking, hardware genius licensor, but others might have finally had enough. If you're one of those, the dedicated, the abused, we think Apple's iOS and iPhone and iPad hardware might be the perfect thing to salve your wounds and restore your sense of gadget wonder.

Nap during your commute with TravAlarm

Nap during your commute with TravAlarm

TravAlarm is an iPhone app that allows you to set a location-alarm. Now you can kick back, close your eyes, and take a quick power nap during your morning commute and relax knowing that you won't miss you stop because TravAlarm will alert you when you've reached your stop.

Even if you don't want to take a nap, TravAlarm is fantastic for closing your eyes, relaxing, and listening to music during your commute. Unfortunately for me, my commute involves me behind the wheel, but once I'm able to to take advantage of Denver's light rail, you bet I'll be using TravAlarm!

British Airways trialling iPads to improve customer service

British Airways is currently rolling out iPads to some of its cabin crew members to see how it can improve customer service. The iPads will be distributed initially to 100 cabin crew with the aim to carry on the roll out to all senior cabin crew in the following months.

The iPads will be used to gain instant access to on board customer preferences such as where they are seated, who they are travelling with and if they have any special dietary requirements. On top of that, the iPads will have access to flight times, safety manuals and customer service updates.

iOS 5 has earthquake warnings for Japan

iOS 5 has earthquake warnings for Japan

According to a 9to5Mac tipster, iOS 5 in Japan will include notifications from Japan's earthquake early warning system. It ties into iOS 5's Notification Center, and can be enabled and disabled just like any Notification Center section in Settings. Because it stays connected to Japan's nationwide online monitoring network, it will most likely lower battery life slightly, but given the importance of the system, that's likely a tradeoff anyone enabling it will be more than willing to make.

No word yet on whether any other earthquake-prone, or natural disaster-prone areas with early warning systems of their own will be able to likewise tie into Notification Center, though App Store apps can fill that gap where and as needed.

Poll: Planning to leave webOS for iPhone or iPad?

Poll: Planning to leave webOS for iPhone or iPad?

Are you planning to leave webOS for iPhone and iPad?

webOS users: Now that HP has decided to bloody well abandon Palm Pre, Veer and TouchPad users and put the whole future of your fav platform in doubt, are you planning on giving iPhone and iPad a look? Are you shopping around? Or are you holding to hope that some knight in shining hardware swoops out of this darkest night to rescue your beloved webOS and give it the chance it so truly deserves?

While we could never replace your admittedly sweet cards and synergy, and we may not be as tweakable as Android, as fresh as Windows Phone, or have a slider like BlackBerry, iOS is elegant, well designed, has more apps than anyone could use in a lifetime, the best web browser in the business, is relentless updated by Apple (witness iOS 5 -- with unobtrusive notifications! -- coming the fall!), and has an awesome Jailbreak community for everything else.

Also, the TiPb Nation rocks! (I'm just saying...)

Let me know which way you're leaning in the poll up top and lets talk about it in the comments below. If you need extra help, make sure you jump over to our iPhone and iPad Forums, you might just find some old friends from PreCentral.net waiting to reconnect!

Word Ball for iPhone now available

Word Ball for iPhone now available

Word Ball, by Continuous Integration, is a new word game on the iPhone. The goal of the game is to keep the letters alive by spelling words with them.

I'm generally terrible at word games and thus avoid them like the plague, but I've actually enjoyed playing Word Ball. I may not be good at it, but it's enjoyable and a great little time-killer.

Details and screenshots after the break.
