Why Facebook and other apps sometimes say "Cleaning..."

With iOS 5 it's not uncommon to sometimes see the label under many apps, including Facebook, sometimes change to read "Cleaning..." This is a feature of iOS 5 that Apple hasn't really explained, so it's caused a lot of you to write in an ask about it. Here's the deal...

Basically, that's iOS 5 deleting cache and temporary files so that when iCloud or iTunes does a backup of your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, that backup is smaller and faster.

Siri: The Holiday Horror Movie

Rooster Teeth Productions has put together a short tongue-in-cheek video trailer based upon the theory that Siri has become self aware and decides it no longer wants to be your personal assistant. Instead it turns against the human race and decides to go on a killing spree avenging all those lame things you asked it to do in the past.

Skitch now available on iPad

Evernote has released the popular photo drawing application, Skitch, for the iPad. With Skitch, you can annotate your photos and screenshots with shapes, arrows, sketches and text.

I have always been a huge fan of Skitch and I'm so excited to see it on the iPad. I often use Skitch for Mac to edit screenshots for tips that I post here on TiPb, but now I'll save some time using my iPad, instead. The best part? It's free!

App Store making big big inroads in China

Market research firm Distimo has issued a new report suggesting the App Store made huge gains in the China market in 2011. According to the report, China held just 18 percent of sales compared to the U.S. market at the beginning of the year, but by November 2011, downloads jumped all the way up to 30 percent. Apple also recently started allowing App Store purchases to be paid in Chinese yuan, which should add an additional boost to sales in the Chinese market as well.

AlbumArt on AppSwitcher [Jailbreak]

AlbumArt on AppSwitcher [Jailbreak]

AlbumArt on AppSwitcher does exactly what the title says - adds album art to your app switcher. I personally like having this functionality because I have a tendency to forget what songs come from what albums. This way I don't have to jump into my iPod app, I can simply bring up my app switcher and look without having to stop what I'm doing.

Once installed from Cydia there's nothing to configure or set up, it should just work. It's available for free and requires iOS 5.0 or higher.

Google Voice update preventing users from actually making Google Voice calls

Today's Google Voice app update seems to have -- wait for it -- actually broken the ability for users to place calls with their Google Voice number.

When attempting to make a call it appears as though it is connecting like normal, but if you look at a caller ID it will show you your actual cell phone number, not your Google Voice number.

Hopefully Google will fix this will all due haste. In the me
