Is your proximity sensor malfunctioning under iOS 4, leading your cheek to hang up on calls or otherwise frustrate your ability to have a conversation? iPhone's proximity sensor is supposed to detect when the iPhone is moved up and close to your face so it can dim the screen and turn off multitouch, preventing just those types of problems. With iOS 4, for some users, it seems to randomly stop working, making multitouch live again, and that's when the problems start.
Incipio dermaSHOT case for iPad is high-density silicone protection in black, pink, green, or blue. As a bonus, it's designed to protect your precious iPad without collecting excess and annoying lint.
It's not the thinnest skin in the store but the thickness does provide extra protection against those little bumps and scrapes that would otherwise impact the device. (Except for the area directly over the Apple logo on the back -- that's left thin and translucent of course...)
iRealSMS 3.0 for iPhone is a jailbreak utility that you can use in place of the default messaging app. Up until this point, I had always used QuickReply for SMS. A several of you TiPb'ers recommended I look at iRealSMS 3.0 so I did. And I'm impressed. iRealSMS 3.0 exceeds the features of QuickReply for SMS by a landslide.
Available in a wide array of custom color options and custom features, the Vapor consists of a solid, CNCd aluminum frame made from aircraft grade metals lined with a new, shock-absorbent liner material to protect and stylize.
And yes, it'll also insulate the iPhone 4 antenna band to prevent any attenuation-related issues.
We'll be getting our geeky little hands on some soon, and thanks to their usual awesomeness, doing a give away just for you. In the meantime, in joy the pics!
UPDATE; Element Case just sent us one more pic, an exclusive look at the cutouts. Check it out below.
The minute Steve Jobs showed off the iPhone 4 front-facing camera you knew it was coming, right? No, not FaceTime, a mirror app that would use said camera to let you check yourself out in full VGA glory.
I'm guessing there'll be a bunch of these soon enough, but when David Barnard of App Cubby and Layton Duncan of Polar Bear Farm come together to do one, and base it on their awesome KaleidoVid code base, you just know it's going to be one bad @$$ mirror app.
UPDATE 2: BGR has posted again, saying they've accessed the guys email accounts and believe the emails to be genuinely from Apple and Steve Jobs'
UPDATE: According to Fortunte Apple PR is calling this email exchange fake and Apple Insider is saying a similar exchange was previously offered to them -- for a price. BGR meanwhile has posted screenshots and headers of the emails in question, perhaps to shore up their authenticity. Real, fake, or really fake?
We touched on this already in our iPhone 4 review -- in iOS 4, Apple has set up several types of behavior that, when taken together, create the multitasking experience for the user. What the user sees is the fast app switcher that launches when you double click the home button, and the carousel animation that sends one app to the "background" and another to the "foreground".
For this to work in a user-friendly way, however, developers need to implement something called "saved state", so a snapshot of the app's current position is stored in memory, and when you return to it, restored to exactly that position in the app. This is supposed to eliminate what used to happen with 3rd party apps in previous versions of iOS -- when you left an App Store app and came back to it later, it relaunched from the beginning. This was especially frustrating, for example, if you were playing a game, got interrupted by a phone call, and then went back to your game only to have to start over.
Ideally it shouldn't happen any more on iOS 4 compatible apps. But it is. What some developers are presenting as updates, and Apple is listing as iOS 4 compatible apps, aren't implementing saved state.
While I'm not certain, it appears the baseline for iOS 4 compatibility is simply that the app isn't supposed to crash when launched in iOS 4.
