Tips and How To's: Using Headphone Button

Usually I use my iPod Nano for my music needs, but it's sure nice to have music on my iPhone also. The new headphones provided with the iPhone 3G has a built-in mic and a "clicker" button to give you some modest control over your music without having to access the touchscreen on your iPhone. How does all this clicking work? Read on!

Forum Review: Living Social for the iPhone

Forum Review: Living Social for the iPhone

[The Lightning Reviews are over, but from their ashes rise... the Forum Reviews! TiPb has assembled a crack team of App-aficionados, and every week we'll be bringing you a few of their very best reviews right here on the blog. And be sure to check out TiPb's iPhone App Store Forum for even more!]

Living Social Forum Review by msbaylor

Living Social is a very interesting app.

The LivingSocial app allows you to keep track of movies you've watched, want to see, didn't like, etc. and the ratings you give them. It also does this with books, restaurants, beer, video games, & music. It will also give you recommendations in each category (provided you have entered a few entries). I personally like this because I can keep track of videos I've liked, what I want to see, books I want to read, places I want to eat at, etc. It is also somewhat of an inventory application because you can mark each entry as owned, want it, etc.

Review: BlueTrek Mini Bluetooth Headset

The BlueTrek Mini Bluetooth Headset is available in two flavors, "Chrome" and "Gun Metal", and can be purchased at the iMore Store for $59.95 here. There are a ton of different bluetooth headsets to choose from for your iPhone, so when you have such a wealth of choices and different prices, how does the BlueTrek Mini compare? I've been using the "Gun Metal" headset and let me tell you what I think after the break.

Box.net... for your iPhone!!!

Box.net... for your iPhone!!!

Are you wishing you had iDisk on your iPhone? Bummed you don't? Looking for an alternative? Then look no further! Arstechnica informs us thatBox.net has just released an app for the iPhone! For those of you that don't know, Box.net is a free service that gives you online access to 1GB of storage. Now, you can access this information directly from your iPhone! 

After logging in you have access to your folders and documents; if the iPhone can render it, you can view it! You can even share folders with the handy "Share" button. You can also upload photos as well, but regretfully, only one at a time. 

One neat feature is that if you share a file, you will be notified of an update via the updates section located in the bottom left of the app!

This is a 1.0 release, and we are looking forward to what new features Box.net might bring us! I took some pictures from my iPhone below, enjoy!

How To: Choose and Set Up Hosted Exchange on iPhone ActiveSync

For most of us today, email is a major part of our lives. Whether it be for business or personal reasons, one thing we all look for in an email service, especially if we are paying for it, is reliability. So what if you're not having the best of luck with Apple's MobileMe service or any other IMAP alternatives? Maybe it's time to consider a hosted Exchange account. Not familiar with Exchange? Then be sure to check out Rene's excellent article from a while back, Walkthrough: Exchange ActiveSync On Your iPhone 2.0. That article can give you a great understanding of exactly how Exchange works on the iPhone.

Don't have a corporate solution or your very own Exchange server, though? No problem! I'm going to be giving you some very reliable hosted Exchange services as well as some tips on getting it up and running for the flawless email you have been seeking!

The iPhone blog on Facebook: Phase 2!

The iPhone blog on Facebook: Phase 2!

A few weeks ago we told you about TiPb's shiny new Facebook group -- a comfy place to de-harshen your mellow and hang with your fellow TiPbsters (TiPbites? Er... we'll work on that!) on the FB!

Well, we got us some feedback. You wanted some features. You wanted to be able to keep up with news, for example, which is something not easily accomplished in the confines of a "group". We shoulda made a "page", you told us (most of us, at least -- Chad bashed us over the head with that one about 0.01 seconds in).

Well, we listened. Introducing The iPhone blog's brand spanking new Facebook Page!

Update: Maybe Zippo Didn't Steal His Lighter App?

A few days back we mentioned how a developer claimed that his lighter application was blatantly ripped off by the lighter company Zippo. As you all know, there are always two sides to every story, eh... in this case 3 sides. Well TiPb received comments not only from Zippo but from Moderati as well.

Here is what Zippo had to say:
