iPad app Friendly for Facebook now free in App Store

iPad app Friendly for Facebook now free in App Store

Facebook still hasn't bothered to release a version of their app for iPad, so it's good news that third-party app, Friendly, has just gone free.

Friendly for Facebook is now ad supported, but users have the ability to dismiss ads that pop up at the bottom of the screen (and they're few and far between to begin with). I've been using their paid version for a while now, and I really enjoy the features available in Friendly for Facebook that simply aren't available on the Facebook website. Uploading photos, for example, is a feature I use quite a bit that wouldn't be available without Friendly for Facebook.

Steve Jobs says MobileMe will "get a lot better" in 2011

Steve Jobs says MobileMe will "get a lot better" in 2011

It looks like MobileMe might be in for some improvements next year, given Steve Jobs' purported response to one frustrated customer.

I love my iPad and iPhone 4 and am a huge fan of yours and all that Apple does. I desperately want to stay inside of Apple'e ecosystem as much as possible. However, MobileMe is making it very difficult for me to do so. Unreliable/unpredictable syncing, creating duplicate entries (sometimes scores of them), etc. It's almost unusable. And I know from forums (including Apple's own support boards) that I am not the only one experiencing these very real and frustrating problems. Please tell me it will get better, and soon?

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak confirmed

Untethered iOS 4.2.1 jailbreak confirmed

MuscleNerd from the iPhone Dev Team has confirmed via Twitter that he has managed to get an untethered jailbreak working for iOS 4.2.1 devices. Currently the only jailbreak available for iOS 4.2.1 involves tethering your device to a Mac or PC in the event that your device needs a reboot. This could be problematic if you are out and are away from your notebook or desktop machine.

ipt4g 4.2.1 untethered JB w/4.2b3 kernel ... Wastes no exploits, but upcoming @comex JB maybe better

In order to use this method, you must have had your SHSH blobs saved with Cydia or TinyUmbrella, as the exploit uses iOS 4.2 beta 3. No news on the release date of this yet, or Comex’s upcoming jailbreak, but we will let you know as soon as we find out.

The jailbreak will work with all iOS devices, the question is, do you want your 4.2.1 jailbreak right... or simply right now? Video after the break.

Google Latitude for iPhone coming soon, will let you track your friends

Google Latitude for iPhone coming soon, will let you track your friends

A native Google Latitude app for iPhone is soon to be released and should be available in an App Store shortly if it isn't already. Latitude is a service that uses location-based check-ins to let you track your friends online (with all appropriate privacy guards, of course).

UPDATE: Latitude has been pulled from the Japanese App Store. TechCrunch thinks the release might have been accidental and an official, publicized release could be coming soon. Now back to the original post already in progress...

While not the brouhaha Google Voice was, Google Latitude's absence from the App Store had been noticed. Could this mean we'll finally get a Google Maps Navigation and -- dare I say it -- native Gmail as well?

Description after the break.

iPhone Auto correct fail [Humor]

iPhone Auto correct fail [Humor]

I dont know about you but I have this love/hate relationship with my iPhone's auto correct. I can't spell (don't tell Rene!) so I can't really live without it, but that means I end up having auto correct change my words, sometimes into something horrific. If you think that's funny head on over to Damnyouautocorrect.com, a site dedicated entirely to just this type of humor.

One more, potentially NSFW, after the break.

Has this ever happened to you? Leave a comment, share your misfortune, and give me a laugh at the same time!

New Cydia tweak Graviboard adds zero gravity to your Springboard! [Jailbreak]

Graviboard

Graviboard, a springboard tweak for jailbroken iPhones and iPads, has just been released on Cydia. This tweak is quite stunning visually as it brings different levels of gravity to your springboard icons. The level of gravity (earth, moon, zero gravity, etc.) and how the tweak is activated can be set in the settings menu. While this tweak is activated you can also interact with your icons by grabbing them and throwing them against each other. You even have the option of being able to launch your apps while they are flying around. Graviboard can be purchased on Cydia right now for $2.99.

Let us know what you think of this latest Jailbreak tweak by leaving us a comment below!

Smartphones and tablets to eclipse PC sales in 18 months?

Smartphones and tablets to eclipse PC sales in 18 months?

IDC analysts have estimated that smartphone and tablet sales will soon surpass worldwide PC sales with help of the Apple iPhone and iPad.

18 months from now, combined smartphone and tablet sales will eclipse the PC, it claims, with both categories hovering in the mid-400 million range. [...] overall it represents a shift from the open-ended, flexible, and powerful PC to the narrow, task-specific, app-driven nature of the iOS and Android kind.

Google's Andy Rubin comments on iTunes and iPhone, shows of Android 3.0 tablet

Yesterday at D:DiveIntoMobile, Google's Android chief, Andy Rubin had some interesting comments about iTunes and iPhone, and showed off Motorola's upcoming Android 3.0 "Honeycomb" tablet. When asked if Google had any plans to start their new music store off with downloads, similar to how Apple's iTunes does it, Rubin's response was quick and to the point:

We could build that 10 times over... (it's) not the right experience.

Rubin also said he would like to see users have an intimate connection to music again like he had as a young kid when he would go to music stores to purchase albums. On the subject of iPhone:
