App Review: Math Ref for iPhone

Math Ref Forum Review by llofte. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Math Ref is what its name implies - a math reference app. It includes formulas, tips, and examples from many areas of mathematics. Math Ref has the potential to be a very helpful tool once some errors are fixed and the organization becomes more intuitive.

App Review: Photogene Photo Enhancer for iPhone

App Review: Photogene Photo Enhancer for iPhone

(Photogene Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

Photogene is an iPhone "touch up" utlity that can be used to touch up or enhance photos you take with your iPhone.

First, what Photogene isn't. It isn't simply a series of filters that you can apply to photos. There are lots of apps out there that can apply a huge range of filters (oil painting, cartoon, black and white, sepia, posterize, etc). I have reviewed a couple of them. This app does have a few filters, but it is more about touching up photos (fine-tuning them, if you will) rather than simply applying a filter to make it "art".

When you start the app, you can choose to take a new photo, edit an existing phot, or continue a previous session. This last option is particularly nice, it means the app "remembers" where you were and what you were doing. If you get interrupted, you don't need to start over. One cool little thing is when you start the app, a "tip of the week" appears about taking photos with the iPhone. Normally I don't like tips that appear like this, but I like it here because the tip is specific to using the iPhone camera (not just a general photography tip).

Terminator Salvation iPhone Game Trailer

14

Terminator Salvation iPhone Game Trailer

With the release of Terminator Salvation only a few short weeks away -- May 21st to be exact -- Gameloft has gone and sent TiPb the very visually-pleasing trailer for their new iPhone game tie-in.

This game looks to be the most impressive iPhone game to date, we can only hope that the controls will be half as good.

There is no word on pricing (We'd expect it to be in the $9.99 price range.) or a release date but you can only assume it should be hitting the App Store on or around the movie's theatrical release.

Could Apple Secretly Be Working on an iPhone Camcorder?

9

Could Apple Secretly Be Working on an iPhone Camcorder?

No. Despite the Washington Post's provocative headline, Apple's no more "secretly working on an iPhone camcorder" now than they were "secretly working on an iPhone camera" in 2006.

Technology advances. Early digital cameras had very low resolution, now they're in the double-digits for megapixels. When VGA cameras were no longer of any value as stand-alone products, they were integrated into cellphones. Now 2, 3.5, 5 megapixel, and even higher resolution optics are becoming likewise obsolete as anything but integrated options, and so are finding their way into the iPhone, Nokia, or SonyEricsson devices.

Who Really Benefits from iPhone on Verizon Rumors?

Who Really Benefits from iPhone on Verizon Rumors?

Daring Fireball posted a tremendous article about how Verizon, AT&T, and Apple benefit if the rumors about an iPhone Lite and iPad media tablet on Verizon are true-ish (Gruber also looks at Apple's iPod strategy mapped to the iPhone -- go read it now, I'll wait).

What struck me, however, was how Verizon, AT&T, and Apple benefit from the rumors themselves rather than the actual devices and/or their eventual carriers, if any.

Swine Flu Tracker Coming to iPhone App Store

Swine Flu Tracker Coming to iPhone App Store

It was only a matter of time before some developer, in this case IntuApps, created an application revolving around the Swine Flu and why not, it's actually pretty informative and it will be free. According to Techcrunch you can expect the following features:

"you can see the current Threat Level for the disease, a map showing confirmed and suspected cases, a symptoms area to inform people, and an alert page for breaking news on Swine Flu."

This one can be very useful for a lot of people but now the big question is when will this application be approved?

Another screenshot after the break...

Twitter Team Would Rather Pay for iPhones Than Take Other Smartphones for Free

Apple.com/business has published a case study of micro-blogging darling, Twitter. Not surprisingly, Apple.com gives Twitter a lot of love for loving Apple products, especially the iPhone:

When it comes to availability, iPhones accommodate peoples’ needs to work remotely and stay connected with the Twitter team. Stone notes that Twitter remains loyal to iPhones even though other handset manufacturers offer them free equipment.

iPhone 3.0: iTunes Account Management in App Store

iPhone 3.0: iTunes Account Management in App Store

We've mentioned previously how iPhone 3.0 Beta 4 enabled an App Store tab in Preferences for managing and switching between iTunes Accounts. Looks like this feature is also available directly from the App Store application itself.

Scroll down to the bottom of a main page (i.e. before you've selected a specific app to look at) and you'll find a button containing your account user ID.

Tap on the button and you'll be given options to View Account, Sign Out, or Cancel.

Much more convenient than having to exit, launch Settings, navigate, switch accounts, go back...

Thanks Apple! More screenshots after the break...

(And thanks Roberto for the tip!)

iPhone 3.0: Find My iPhone to be MobileMe WebApp?

iPhone 3.0: Find My iPhone to be MobileMe WebApp?

A minor tweak in iPhone 3.0 Beta 4 changes the language for the -- still-unannounced by Apple -- "Find My iPhone" feature from simply saying it uses your MobileMe account at me.com, to saying it uses a MobileMe Web application.

The assumption has always been that this feature would let you track a lost iPhone (or perhaps the child for whom you bought it), web application sounds -- at least to us -- a tad more substantial in terms of implementation.
