iPhone 3G S (Finally!) Available via Apple Retail Canada

Up until now, the only places to get iPhone 3G in Canada were Rogers and their subsidiary Fido. Apple Retail Stores didn't carry them.

Friday, with the introduction of the iPhone 3G S, that changes. Per Apple mailing:

Available at the Apple Retail Store June 19th. Stores open at 8:00am.

QuickApp 3.0: Gokivo + Yahoo! Local Search for iPhone Shows off Turn-by-Turn Navigation, In-App Purchases

QuickApp 3.0: Gokivo + Yahoo! Local Search for iPhone Shows off Turn-by-Turn Navigation, In-App Purchases

TiPb had the opportunity to test drive Gokivo Navigator ($0.99 + In-App Purchases - iTunes link) over the last couple of days. This is one of the first iPhone 3.0 specific apps in the App Store, so first off it was great to see turn-by-turn navigation working (even in Canada!), and second it was interesting to see how Apple handles in-app purchases.

Getting this going is a little bit of work. You start the app and type in a destination. I found Apple Canada in my contacts so hit that. Similar to the built in Maps app, Gokivo will show you your location on a map. Instead of Street View, however, you have a green GO button. Hit that and you're on your way to turn-by-turn.

If you don't already have a subscription, Gokivo activates the aforementioned in-app-purchase engine, and once you login with your iTunes ID and buy a month of service ($9.99 in the version we tested) the GO gets going.

It takes time to acquire a good GPS signal, and will advise you if there isn't one to be had. Once it locks on, however, you're in for a pretty smooth turn-by-turn experience. Arrows point your way and a synthesized female voice tells you when and where to turn and, and preps you for upcoming turns. We repeatedly went the wrong way, and were impressed with how quickly and accurately Gokivo recalculated and tried to get us back on track.

Note, Gokivo isn't free just for the app because Apple doesn't let developers do in-app purchases for free apps. Hence, $0.99 will likely be the foundation for what TiPb considers iPhone "scaleware". Whether the $9.99 monthly fee -- or other in-app-purchasing options -- suit your needs and budget you'll have to tell us.

Gallery after the break!

UPDATED: AT&T to Allow Early iPhone 3G to iPhone 3G S Upgrades?

UPDATED: AT&T to Allow Early iPhone 3G to iPhone 3G S Upgrades?

UPDATE: AT&T has a press release up. It's for real.

A toss-away line in Walt Mossberg's iPhone 3G S review (yep, it's up already!) made us do a double take. Then a spit take. Then... (what other kinds of takes are there again?)

iPhone 3.0 Drop Time Update and the Great iPhone 3G S Delivery Date Debate

iPhone 3.0 Drop Time Update and the Great iPhone 3G S Delivery Date Debate

Years past it was lining up outside Apple Stores days in advance, this year it's staring feverishly at LCDs, hitting little buttons like mice at a combo food dispenser/electro-shocker, and hoping beyond hope that iPhone 3.0 is finally ready to download and the UPS dude is a couple days early at the door.

Relax. Breathe.

Waiting for iPhone 3.0?

Waiting for iPhone 3.0?

Yeah, so are we. We have no idea when exactly "today" it will be released -- Apple can pull the trigger whenever they want, first thing in the morning New York time, or last minute at night in Cupertino. So, all we can do is wait and keep hitting that download button.

Or, if you want to help pass the time, check out TiPb's iPhone Forums. They're friendly, informative, and fast and free to join (for those few who haven't already).

QuickApp: TweetDeck Twitter Client for iPhone

QuickApp: TweetDeck Twitter Client for iPhone

Chad's excited. Why? TweekDeck for iPhone has just hit the App Store (iTunes link). Doesn't look to be iPhone 3.0 Push Notification enabled just yet, but the hallmark feature of Twitter Groups and multiple, columnar dashboards (looks similar to tabs in Mobile Safari) are all in place. And you can "shake to refresh".

Best of all? It's free!

If you try it out, let us know how it works for you, and how it compares to your current favorite Twitter client.

Updated: Apple to Palm -- Careful Playing on our iTunes Lawn!

Not quite "get off our lawn", yet clearly a sign post warning that the lawn might on day get a tad hostile if you choose to linger there without leave. Here it is, via Daring Fireball, Apple's latest Knowledge Base Article: iTunes: About unsupported third-party digital media players, aka the Palm Pre syncing saga:

Could HTML 5 Kill Flash on the iPhone?

33

Could HTML 5 Kill Flash on the iPhone?

Well, at least kill the need for Flash on the iPhone? Daring Fireball says a simple "yes" to Yahoo! Tech's question.

The idea is that a standards based technology, open and broadly used, could make redundant proprietary and sometimes bloated and buggy plugins like Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight, and Sun JavaFX.

Apple's Safari, including Mobile Safari on the iPhone, and Mozilla Firefox are already supporting HTML5 features. Microsoft's Internet Explorer -- so far -- isn't.
