Artist Paints Cover for New Yorker Magazine -- on iPhone!

Artist Paints Cover for New Yorker Magazine -- on iPhone!

The New Yorker (via Engadget Mobile) has an amazing cover for their June issue that was painted... on an iPhone!

Jorge Colombo used the app, Brushes ($4.99 - iTunes link) to create the work. He told the New York Times that the iPhone:

“made it easy for me to sketch without having to carry all my pens and brushes and notepads with me, and I like the fact that I am drawing with a set of tools that anybody can have easily in their pocket,” he said. There is one other advantage of the phone, too: no one notices he is drawing. Mr. Colombo said he stood on 42nd Street for about an hour with no interruptions.

The editors liked the more organic, dream-like quality of the iPhone image, not as sharp or technical as typical electronic renderings.

We like it too. Video after the break!

Kids Corner App Review: 100 Sounds

(<a href=http://forum.theiphoneblog.com/iphone-apps-games/169767-review-100-sounds-kids-corner-review.html">100 Sounds Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

This is going to be a fairly short review. 100 sounds is just what you would think it is: hundreds of various sounds effects to play on your iPhone (more than 100!). They are organized alphabetically by name, and to hear a sound, you simply tap the name of the sound.

Cocoia Composition: If Apple's Not Going to Help Developers Make Great iPhone Icons -- We Will!

Cocoia Composition: If Apple's Not Going to Help Developers Make Great iPhone Icons -- We Will!

Mac and iPhone icon designer Sebastiaan de With of Cocoia takes app designers to task for not making their icons better match the quality and look of Apple's built-in apps. Says de With:

A lot of professional designers get it wrong as well, and I can understand; it’s truly very hard to make an icon that looks as great as one from Apple’s bunch and blends in with the rest. I don’t mean to be an icon snob; I like diversity in my icons, and especially creative freedom. It’s more than just annoying, however, when creative and diverse motifs look extremely alien to their environment.

2009 Next Generation iPhone 2,1 Rumor Consensus Reached?

2009 Next Generation iPhone 2,1 Rumor Consensus Reached?

With WWDC 2009 only two weeks away, the many rumors and leaks and informed guesses seem to have coalesced into a somewhat unified view of what we probably will -- and probably won't -- see if/when the next generation iPhone 2,1 is announced. Given the full version upgrade number (the original iPhone 2G is 1,1, the iPhone 3G is 1,3) we'd expect there to be more in the way of hardware changes than we saw last year with the addition of "just" 3G and GPS. Will those expectations be met? We have a pretty good handle on the iPhone 3.0 software, but what about the hardware?

Eucalyptus E-Book Reader Now Approved, Available in App Store

This time, same as the last time, the initial, stupefying rejection of e-book reader Eucalyptus has been followed up by web outrage and now App Store acceptance. (Can we officially call these the 4 stages of App Store grief'ing now?) From developer Montgomerie's blog (via Macworld):
