App for That: How to print emails, webpages, and photos as PDFs

There are hundreds of thousands of iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps for just about everything -- so how come the one you need, the one you know just has to be there, is so hard to find? Enter TiPb's new weekly feature where staff and readers alike sort through the App Store and help you find just the right App for That. This week, Patrick asks:

I'm looking for an app that will convert anything (website, email, email attachment, picture from camera roll, etc.) on the iPhone/iPad to a .PDF file from the built-in Print > Select Printer dialogue.

To see what we found for Patrick, follow along after the break!

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.

iOS 5 getting better iTunes and App Store download management? [Updated]

iOS 5 getting better iTunes and App Store download management? [Updated]

Oh my, could iOS 5 finally fix one of my longest standing pet peeves? If the latest betas are any indication, it might! Tap buy (download or install) in the App Store and instead of being torn out and thrust back to your home screen, the app simply starts to download in the background and the button greys out when it's done.

iTunes has also been improving over the last couple of betas. Now, if you buy an album, you can see the download progress of each track right in the list.

I'm so happy, I might even update when it's finally released!

iOS 5 beta 6 works with existing jailbreak tools

Seeing as Apple seeded iOS 5 beta 6 today, a lot of users want to know if they'll need to wait in order to update and re-jailbreak. The answer to that is no. Go ahead an update. The existing version of Redsn0w for Mac and Sn0wbreeze for Windows will work just fine. I've confirmed this working on a 4th generation iPod Touch. iDB has confirmed it working as well.

Apple removing developer access to UDIDs in iOS 5?

Apple removing developer access to UDIDs in iOS 5?

Time was a developer could call the UDID (unique device identifier) for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and do with it what they would, from beneficial things like keeping your data allocated to you, to evil things like tracking you and your behavior for advertising and giggles. Now with iOS 5 beta 6 Apple aims to make it no longer so.

Deprecated in iOS 5.0

uniqueIdentifier

An alphanumeric string unique to each device based on various hardware details. (read-only) (Deprecated in iOS 5.0. Instead, create a unique identifier specific to your app.)

iOS 5 likely coming first week of October

iOS 5 likely coming first week of October

To answer a ton of questions we're getting, if I had to guess I'd say iOS 5 will likely be launched in the first week of October. Apple traditionally releases a new version of iOS to the public alongside the release of new iPhone hardware, if not a couple of days before to help balance server loads. If iPhone 5 ends up being scheduled for October 7, then iOS 5 could be scheduled for any time that week up to and including the same Friday.

webOS ran twice as fast on iPad 2 as TouchPad? [Updated]

webOS ran twice as fast on iPad 2 as TouchPad? [Updated]

Matt Brian from The Next Web has a source that claims, before canceling all webOS devices, people inside HP tested webOS as a web app on iPad 2 using Safari and the results were twice as fast as their own TouchPad hardware.

The hardware reportedly stopped the team from innovating beyond certain points because it was slow and imposed constraints, which was highlighted when webOS was loaded on to Apple’s iPad device and found to run the platform significantly faster than the device for which it was originally developed.

More on iPad 3 coming this spring, difficulty in producing Retina Displays

The Wall Street Journal tells us that -- surprise, surprise -- Apple is working on a Retina Display iPad 3 for this fall!

The Cupertino, Calif., company has ordered key components such as display panels and chips for a new iPad it is aiming to launch in early 2012, said the people.

The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display - 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 - and Apple's suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.
