App Review: Peggle for iPhone

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

With all the talk recently about Peggle, I was surprised that it hasn't been reviewed (although it did get a "quick app" and a pick of the week) so I thought I would download and give it a try. And, well, Peggle has managed to crack my "regular game rotation" that currently consists of only a few other games.

iPhone vs. BlackBerry Deathmatch

iPhone vs. BlackBerry Deathmatch

While the iPhone vs. Palm Pre is the current darling of the blogerati (we're not sure anyone in the mainstream is even aware of it...), we can't forget that most iconic of rivalries: iPhone vs. BlackBerry. Not when Infoworld has written up the provocatively titled: "Deathmatch: BlackBerry versus iPhone -- It’s time for us to bury the BlackBerry and move on to modern mobile -- even for e-mail".

Apple Finishes Push Notification Beta Tests for iPhone 3.0

Apple Finishes Push Notification Beta Tests for iPhone 3.0

Confession: We received reports of this going back last week, but kinda thought it was known the tests were for a limited time (originally scheduled for a week, if memory serves). MacRumors, however, reminds us not to take such things for granted.

iPhone Dev-Team: iTunes 8.2 Updates Low-Level USB Protocol, Prevents Jailbreak, May Prevent Palm Pre Sync?

Jeremy already passed along the warning from the iPhone Dev-Team on iTunes 8.2. In case you missed it, they told jailbreakers and potential jailbreakers NOT to install Apple's just-released iTunes update.

According to their latest Dev-Team Blog post, the reason seems to be:

Quick App: The Sims 3 for iPhone

Quick App: The Sims 3 for iPhone

We'll avoid the obvious question (why live in a SIM world when you can live in the real one), and the metaphysical (maybe you're just a SIM in someone else's iPhone already...?) because, frankly, no one cares! The Sims 3 is -- finally! -- out for the iPhone and iPod touch:

MobileMe Control Panel for Windows Updated

MobileMe Control Panel for Windows Updated

We're not sure how many pure Windows users are running MobileMe. For those who run Mac OS X, especially multiple Mac OS X machines, the computer sync, Back to my Mac, and other functions make it a far, far better value for the money than a strict Windows environment. However, if you run both platforms, or even if you just love your MobileMe on Windows, Apple has given you a little bit of love today as well. The MobileMe News blog says:

Rumor: Fido Canada to Sell $99 iPhone 4GB -- With Video iChat?!

Boy Genius' ninjas -- Canuck chapter -- have gotten their tiger-clawed hands on what looks to be Fido Canada's 2009 roadmap. Fido, which was bought by Rogers and is now marketed as the budget-conscious GSM brand, carries the iPhone 3G, and if this leak is correct, just might next be carrying:

a 4GB iPhone model that will run for $99 and come with quad-band EDGE, tri-band HSDPA, a 2 megapixel shooter and, believe it or not, iChat video calling

iPhone-Dev Team to Potential Jailbreakers: Do Not Install iTunes 8.2

iPhone-Dev Team to Potential Jailbreakers: Do Not Install iTunes 8.2

Today Apple officially released the latest version of iTunes (8.2). Anyone who is familiar with jailbreaking should be well aware that now is a time to wonder, will the cat and mouse game continue? It seems like it has but @MuscleNerd claims it is unintentional on Apple's part.

<

blockquote>Today's iTunes 8.2 update changes the way your computer talks to the device. This affects things like QuickPwn and PwnageTool when they try to identify what's connected. Also, ssh over usb breaks due to same reasons. Fixes are in the works but for now avoid 8.2

iPhone 101: How to Reset Your Home Screen Icons to Default

iPhone 101: How to Reset Your Home Screen Icons to Default

Welcome to iPhone 101, where TiPb helps new iPhone users use their new iPhones -- or just gives you a handy link to send to your new iPhone using friends.

This time we're tackling something near and dear to every child-caring adult's heart: how to resent your iPhone Home Screen to default. Because as we all know, you let your child at your iPhone, and they can switch around your icons -- even blank your Home Screen -- in no time flat (and yes, the above is a real screenshot of an iPhone after a 3 year old spent about 5 minutes on it...)

Luckily, there must be a lot of parents at Apple, because they've made it lickity-split simple to restore.

iPhone 3G Supply Running Low at Best Buy

We are all aware that WWDC is only one week away. If history is any indication of what is to come, that means we should be introduced to the next-generation of Apple's iPhone and if we follow previous patterns, we should start seeing the iPhone 3G supply starting to run thin on all levels.

iPhone Jailbreak 101: What Are Those Swirly Black Badges on Mail, Phone, iPod?

iPhone Jailbreak 101: What Are Those Swirly Black Badges on Mail, Phone, iPod?

Confession: Jeremy can't believe we're posting this, but after a bunch of forum questions, email queries, and a mini Twitter 'splosion, we figured we'd put this up as a public service message to the Jailbreak community.

First: don't panic.

Second: those strange little black icon badges that have suddenly popped up on your Phone, Email, iPod, and perhaps other apps? Yeah, that's because you installed Backgrounder, and that's how Backgrounder shows you which applications, built-in or user-enabled, are currently running background tasks (multitasking).

Third: enjoy.

iPhone 3.0: Safari Geo-Location Not Just for Google's Latitude

iPhone 3.0: Safari Geo-Location Not Just for Google's Latitude

Last week we posted on Google's Latitude service coming to the iPhone by way of Safari. Of course, as Computerworld (via MacRumors) points out, for the location-tracking buddy service to work in the browser, the browser must support geo-location, and not just for Google.
