Quick App: Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" for iPhone

Quick App: Reportage Twitter "Radio Tuner" for iPhone

If the iPhone and Twitter go together like chocolate and peanut butter, then for the most part current iPhone Twitter client developers give us many variations of the peanut butter cup. Tasty confections though they may be, and each unique and delicious in their own right, at the end they still tend towards variations of the peanut butter cup.

Enter Reportage from wherecloud [$2.99 - iTunes link], which rearranges those twin flavors like nouveau cuisine, utterly deconstructed and left for you to explore.

Too obscure? Okay, rewind. Reportage bills itself as a "radio tuner" for Twitter where followers are treated like stations on the FM dial and you can tune in (or tune out) to what they're saying, and spin the dial to move from user "station" to user "station".

It should be noted at the beginning that Reportage isn't a general purpose Twitter workhouse. There are tons of those already. Like Birdhouse, which models itself on a "notebook" writing experience for Twitter, Reportage has also chosen to focus on one specific concept -- pseudo-"live broadcast" of the Twitter users you follow.

Keep that in mind as we go along...

iPhone Dev-Team: ultrasn0w Users Avoid iPhone 3.1 Beta!

iPhone Dev-Team: ultrasn0w Users Avoid iPhone 3.1 Beta!

Right in time for iPhone 3.1, the iPhone Dev-Team has begun issuing their usual warnings about jailbreak/unlock users and new firmware updates:

ultrasn0w users must stay away from official 3.1 (incl. betas) until we release the tools for it, or you'll lose unlock!

Tempting as a tasty new beta may be, if you can't live without your hacked iPhone, don't hit that update button now, or any time before the iPhone Dev-Team has new, tested tools ready for you.

Once again, you've been warned!

Quick App: Cellar Wine Tracker for iPhone

From the team team that brought us Barista, Cellar aims to give wine the same app love coffee has enjoyed for a while now:

Cellar is a portable, swipeable showcase of what's currently in your cellar or wine rack, plus the Garage feature lets you store wine that you've decided you might buy again.

Cellar has been submitted to the App Store and should be available... as soon as Apple decides to make it so.

In the meantime, enjoy the screenshots after the break!

iPhone 3.0 Bugs: .Me Spontaneously Changing to .Mac?

iPhone 3.0 Bugs: .Me Spontaneously Changing to .Mac?

Your iPhone MobileMe account randomly and spontaneously changing from [username]@me.com to [username]@mac.com? You're not alone.

Like the missing/mismatched app icon bug, this is another issue that was a problem to some during the betas, and continues to be a problem now that iPhone 3.0 has gone into release.

Unfortunately, once the bug manifests, MobileMe doesn't allow you to simply edit it back, and since everything changes from .me to .mac (your email address, SMTP server, etc.), it can be more than a little annoying.

We Get It -- iPhone 3GS is Faster than Fast Fast!

We Get It -- iPhone 3GS is Faster than Fast Fast!

We've been talking about the zippiness of the iPhone 3GS -- S as in Speed -- since it launched, and report after report has confirmed that not only is it fast, it's faster than we initially thought.

Here's more of the same. Running OpenGL 1.x like the iPhone 3G (never mind that it can run OpenGL 2.0 which the iPhone 3G can't), the results are most impressive:

iPhone App Store Just Says No to Nudity -- For Now?

iPhone App Store Just Says No to Nudity -- For Now?

Last week the first iPhone (and iPod touch) app to feature nudity was live in the iTunes App Store. Technically, however, it was simply a change in the server behind the app -- the developer added nude images.

Subsequently, however, the app became unavailable. The developer first reported that their own servers couldn't keep up with demand for the newly nudified images, but it turns out Apple laid the hammer down on the "soft-core porn" app:
