Steve Jobs says cross-compilers (like Flash CS5) make sub-standard apps

As is his want lately, Apple CEO Steve Jobs replied to an email from a developer concerned about iPhone 4 SDK's ban on using cross-compilers like Flash CS5 or MonoTouch to create apps.

After a brief exchange about Daring Fireball's article on the matter, Greg Slepak wrote:

iChat video motherlode of code: moderators, chat room, encryption, more

9to5Mac has hit the motherlode of code references when it comes to iPhone 4.0 iChat video secret strings and references, including what looks like moderators, chat room, encryption, and more.

Presumably moderation would let Apple prevent their hosting of ChatRoulette-style not-safe-for-families fun, especially if iChat hooks into the Game Center social network.

Quick Review: Air Hockey for iPad

Quick Review: Air Hockey for iPad

Air Hockey [$0.99 - iTunes Link] by Acceleroto is now a universal binary that works on both your iPhone and iPad (that's right, pay once, play everywhere). It offers fluid air hockey action, simple controls, and a lot of fun.

For more about Air Hockey from Acceleroto as well as video of my son and I playing please stay with us after the break!

Air Hockey lets you choose one or two pucks and one and two players. If you do not have anyone to play with, one player mode gives you a computer opponent with varying difficulty, from kiddie to INSANE. With the larger size of the iPad, however, a human opponent becomes more more do-able, and much more fun.

Take a peek at the video where I play with my son in a two puck game. Who won? watch to find out, but also watch to see how much fun it is.

iPhone 4 folder magic: hide built-in apps you don't use

While iPhone 4 still won't let you delete built-in Apple apps you don't use (looking at you Weather, Stocks, Compass, etc.!), with the new Folders functionality you can group them together hide them away, effectively wasting only one icon space instead of many.

Tweetie to become official Twitter or iPhone

Tweetie to become official Twitter or iPhone

Hot off the presses from the official Twitter blog, we learn they're buying Atebit's Tweetie, renaming it Twitter for iPhone, and making it free. Atebit's founder, Loren Brichter, will become a key member of their mobile team. What brought this on?

Careful analysis of the Twitter user experience in the iTunes AppStore revealed massive room for improvement. People are looking for an app from Twitter, and they're not finding one. So, they get confused and give up. It's important that we optimize for user benefit and create an awesome experience.

iPhone 4: Notes Sync for IMAP

iPhone 4: Notes Sync for IMAP

When you add an IMAP-based email account (including MobileMe and Gmail) to iPhone 4, in addition to the previous options you now get a toggle for "Sync Notes".

Notes syncing was famously listed as an iPhone 1.0 feature but then mysteriously vanished only to return in iPhone 3.0 as an iTunes-limited option (i.e., not push or over-the-air).
