TiPb TV 8: Is MobileMe worth it?

TiPb TV 8: Is MobileMe worth it?

Is Apple's MobileMe service worth $99 a year? Or more to the point, who is Apple's MobileMe service worth it for? Now that one of its most compelling features, Find my iPhone is free (yes, even for older devices!) it's a question we're getting asked more and more often. And it's the topic for the eighth episode of our new, conversational video show, TiPb TV!

Rene and I go over the services MobileMe provides for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users, and the additional features people with Macs -- or multiple Macs -- get out of it, what Apple might do to improve it in 2011, cheaper places to find it (like Amazon.com) as well as free alternatives like Gmail and Dropbox for those who'd rather roll their own.

If you're trying to figure out whether or not to spend the money on MobileMe watch along and we'll help you decide!

Publishers cut game prices, hope to secure top spot before App Store holiday freeze

Publishers cut game prices, hope to secure top spot before App Store holiday freeze

EA recently lowered the price of roughly 70 of their iPhone and iPad App Store games to $0.99, now Gamevil and Namco have also reduced their prices and as the holiday iTunes Connect deadline fast approaches, more may follow. Mike Schramm from TUAW explains why:

Apple is freezing the charts on December 23rd, which means that any games in the top 200 at that time will remain there over the all-important Christmas holiday, the point at which we've seen the biggest jumps in App Store sales (due to all the new hardware out there under the tree).

So when everyone gets their brand new iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and heads over to the App Store to get their game on, those top selling, top free, and top grossing leaderboards are going to be marketing gold.

List of Namco [iTunes link] sales after the break. Now who's next?

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry to battle Apple?

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry to battle Apple?

Why is RIM running away from BlackBerry in order to try and keep up, never mind compete, with Apple's iPad, never mind iPhone? Georgia, Chad, Ally and I spoke about this at length on last Sunday's iPad Live! podcast but given RIM's financial results and accompanying comments this week, I think it's appropriate to get some text behind it now as well.

Put SBSettings toggles in the iPhone app switcher with SBSwitcher [Jailbreak]

Put SBSettings toggles in the iPhone app switcher with SBSwitcher [Jailbreak]

SBSwitcher is a new mod in the Cydia Store that allows you to relocate all SBSettings toggles to the iOS 4 app switcher dock. Just scroll to the left to reveal all your toggles! The tweak is very useful, especially when you're in system apps (like Cydia) that don't allow you to use SBSettings from the status bar. Additional features include the ability to call up the app switcher from the lockscreen, letting you manipulate toggles or get into a running app without even unlocking your iPhone!

One small caveat is that you don't have the ability to respring from the app switcher without going into SBSettings from the status bar. An easy way to side-step this is by setting Activator to respring by using one of the available options, making it easier to respring on command without the need of getting into SBSettings whatsoever.

SBSwitcher is available in the Cydia Store for $2.99. Unfortunately for now, the mod doesn't work with the iPad. Check out the full feature list and screenshots after the break, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Skyfire for iPad coming very soon

Skyfire for iPad coming very soon

Skyfire has released a demo video (see below) showing off the iPad version of their Flash transcoding browser. Already available for the iPhone with fairly positive reviews; some of the features in the iPad version are the ability to view full screen Flash video as well as embedded Facebook, Twitter and Google Reader integration.

The iPad version will be a totally separate app, which basically means you will have to pay again if you already paid for the iPhone version. No information on pricing, but expect to pay slightly more than the $2.99 that the iPhone version currently costs.

Hopefully Skyfire will have ironed out its previous server overload issues, prior to the launch of the iPad version. Do you use Skyfire? Are you excited by the iPad version? Let us know in the comments!
