Palm webOS and Google Android after iPhone developers

Palm webOS and Google Android after iPhone developers

It should come as no surprise that both Palm webOS and Google Android want iPhone developers on their platform. Mac developers have long been as passionate about their platform and incredibly talented in the apps they've delivered, and a lot of that has transferred over to iOS devices like the iPhone and now iPad.

Whether or not Apple is engaged in a platform war with Palm and Google it's inarguable that the current generation of users want apps and right now Apple has an advantage in that area. Part of getting people to switch to another platform is making sure the apps they love are on that platform, and that means big name apps and fan favorites alike.

You heard right, TiPb is giving away an iPhone 4 and all you have to do to enter is make us a video telling us why you should be the one to get it. Best video -- which should involve some sort of song, dance, puppetry, dramatic reading, free running, jello wrestling, heart warming story, or similar level of awesome -- gets the iPhone.

How are you following the World Cup on your iPhone and iPad?

How are you following the World Cup on your iPhone and iPad?

The 2010 World Cup is kicking off (ha!) and I'm curious -- how are you following along on your iPhone or iPad? Now, like Nokia, many generational North Americans aren't as familiar with the biggest soccer/football event on the planet, but I'm sure there are tons of fans incredibly invested in just which team brings home the gold from South Africa this year.

  • Are you using Safari and staying up to date over the web? If so, what site brings you the fastest updates with the information you want most? FIFA's official site? Your local team site? Sports station? Fan site?

  • Are you using an app or multiple apps to get the game on? Which ones do the job best for you? What features make them key? Push notifications for

  • And, hey, if you have a top soccer/football game and use that to play along with the pros, throw your favorite in as well.

Apple, Google, AdMob, mobile advertising, privacy, and competition

Apple, Google, AdMob, mobile advertising, privacy, and competition

Apple restricting third-party advertisers from collecting personal data if they are owned by another platform vendor could be a way of preventing Google's AdMob from competing directly on the iPhone with Apple's iAd, but it could also be a sign that Apple, cranky after leaked iPhone prototypes and iPad analytics, is determined to take back control of user data.

MathBoard for iPad - app review

14

MathBoard for iPad - app review

MathBoard for iPad is an educational application designed to help you or your child excel in arithmetic operations. The level of difficulty is customizable, making MathBoard a great learning tool for children in kindergarten through elementary school as well as adults who wish to brush up on their basic math skills.

MathBoard is simply a multiple choice quiz generator. You can customize which topics you wish to be quizzed on, how many questions are in the quiz, and what range of numbers you want in the problems. Topics include addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, squares, cubes, and square roots.

While taking a quiz, there is a small area at the bottom of the screen where you can use your finger (or stylus, if you prefer) to work on the problem as if you were using a pencil and paper. This is an excellent feature of MathBoard, however, the area is too small. For example, when working out a multiplication problem of two numbers with two or more digits, you quickly run out of space to complete all the calculations in the traditional manner. Instead, you must continue your work next to the work you already did. This can be very confusing for a child who is new to the procedure. I would like to either see a pop-up to do scratch work on or landscape support. Most of these problems require vertical space to work out and rotating to landscape may solve the lack of space issue.

After completing the quiz, MathBoard displays your score and gives an option to save the quiz. If you do, you can come back to it later and retake the entire quiz or just the questions you got wrong.

Despite the small scratch work space, MathBoard is an excellent application for learning arithmetic. The interface is very beautiful and much more enjoyable than taking printed quizzes with pencil and paper!

iTunes Connect Mobile now in App Store

iTunes Connect Mobile now in App Store

Apple recently released iTunes Connect Mobile [Free - iTunes Link] which allows registered developers to track app sales and trends.  The app is available via the App Store now and is a free download.  For developers, this provides an extremely easy way to not only check sales numbers but to see trends on the go.

Simply log in and you'll get a nice layout that shows you not only your total sales but a breakdown of sales by application. From what I understand, you can see either daily or weekly totals as of right now. As we are currently working on applications and haven't released any yet, I don't see any breakdowns.  Any developers have any feedback on the breakdown or things you'd like to see in an update?

I think another really neat app idea would be if Apple released an app that let regular users see purchased app histories and showed totals of all iPhone/iPad apps they've purchased, as well as a monthly breakdown of what they're buying.  It would be interesting how much users spend on apps in total.  After 3 years of using an iPhone, I'd be nervous to see how much I've actually spent on apps.  Hit the break for some screenshots!

Are iOS 4 background API really the best solution to multitasking?

46

Are iOS 4 background API really the best solution to multitasking?

Multitasking was widely rumored to be coming to the iPhone with iOS 4, but instead of a traditional "leave full apps running in the background" approach, Apple instead chose to implement a more restricted but, they felt, better performing and power friendly solution involving 7 specific background API (application programming interfaces.) Is that, however, the best solution to the multitasking challenge as Apple claims? I spoke to several developers during WWDC 2010 and asked them that question.

First, we'll review what Apple is doing in iOS 4, then we'll see if developers think it works as well in reality as as Apple says it does on stage.
