Vodafone Portugal Launches Mobile TV App

Vodafone Portugal Launches Mobile TV App

Back in January, before iPhone 3.0 made MMS an impending feature for all (carrier depending!), Jose sent us word that Vodafone Portugal had launched their own iMMS app. Well, now Jose is back and so is Vodafone Portugal.. with Mobile TV:

an application to watch TV from the iPhone. The download is free but after that you have to pay a subscription. One day is 0,89€, one week is 1,97€ (first week free), one month is 7,44€ (first month free).

So is this another case of a carrier leading where Apple will one day soon follow? They have announced new live streaming capabilities in 3.0...

Man Steals iPhone. Man Takes Photo. Man Emails Photo. Man Gets Busted.

Man Steals iPhone. Man Takes Photo. Man Emails Photo. Man Gets Busted.

One of my favorite quotes from the West Wing went something like "no amount of law enforcement money or manpower can equal a criminal being stupid". Today's case in point, via the New York Post, a man mugged a woman for her iPhone, used it to take a picture of himself, used her email on her iPhone to send his picture to his own email account:

iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari Using Nitro Engine for Ultra-Fast Web Browsing?

iPhone 3.0: Mobile Safari Using Nitro Engine for Ultra-Fast Web Browsing?

We so fondly remember Palm's Roger McNamee stating the Pre would be a million times faster on the web than the iPhone (now retracted), and even our sister-site PreCentral.net jumped on that band wagon, saying the Pre looked to be 4x faster than the iPhone.

Skype for iPhone Coming Soon?

Skype for iPhone Coming Soon?

While it may not be the holy grail, it's definitely one of the most prized treasures of thus-far undelivered iPhone apps: Skype. Well, GigaOM says maybe not for much longer:

A tipster — a very reliable one — tells me that Skype is almost ready to launch that iPhone version, perhaps as soon as next week. CTIA Wireless, a large mobile industry trade event, kicks off in Las Vegas next Wednesday, so perhaps the announcement will be made there. I am working on getting more details, as well as screenshots of the service.

Is Apple Really Charging Developers 100% of App Refunds? Not So Far.

Is Apple Really Charging Developers 100% of App Refunds? Not So Far.

Techcrunch ran one of their big, blazing headlines today reporting "Apple’s iPhone App Refund Policies Could Bankrupt Developers". They cited Apple's contract which allows for Apple to charge developers 100% of a refund, even though devs only get 70% of the payment to begin with. Under that model, developers would get hit for 30% extra each time an App Store purchase was refunded. Not nice, for certain. But apparently also not (yet?) the case.

Quick App: Convertbot Unit Converter for iPhone

3

Quick App: Convertbot Unit Converter for iPhone

Tapbot was kind enough to give us a sneak-peak at Convertbot, their latest app, which converts units of power, pressure, speed, temperature, time, volume, work, angle, area, currency, length, and mass with the same kind of fun, fantastic interface they brought to their previous app, Weightbot (see our interview).

Rotate the wheel, old-school iPod style, to pick your category, tap to lock in the first unit, confirm, tap to lock in the second unit, confirm that, and you're ready to go. (You can also tap the center button to change the direction of conversion at any time -- i.e., miles to km, km to miles).

Rather then the generic keypad, Convertbot drops down it's wheel to reveal a custom job, complete with backspace.

It's a simple application done with a lot of care and consideration. It's the kind of app we need more of. Full gallery after the break.

Convertbot is now available for $0.99 via the iTunes App Store.

TiPb Advisory: Not a Developer and Thinking of Going to 3.0? Think Twice!

TiPb Advisory: Not a Developer and Thinking of Going to 3.0? Think Twice!

When Apple released iPhone OS 2.0 over a year ago, very few people had access to the betas and screenshots were few and far between. Was it because early developers were seasoned, professional Mac veterans who took the NDA (non-disclosure agreement) seriously? Who knows. What we do know is that iPhone OS 3.0, following last Tuesday's beta release, is running rampant over the internet. Somewhat less than honorable "developers" are even offering to "sell" access to the 3.0 beta. Yikes.

This has led to a lot of users getting, or at least thinking about getting, the 3.0 beta for their own iPhones.

Well, think carefully. And think twice!

App Experiments: From PCalc to TwitKitteh and Where it All Went Wrong

The App Store, even with 25,000 applications, is still a new market and one we're all, developers, users, and media alike, trying to figure out. Developer James Thomson recently did an experiment to see how Twitkitteh, a fun little app, would compare in terms of sales and earnings, to his acclaimed PCalc in the App Store.

The results? Thomson talks about them in a blog post entitled Where Did it All Go Wrong?
