App Review: Notifications for iPhone

Notifications App Review by msbaylor. For more App Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!

Notifications [$2.99] for iPhone does just what the name suggests -- hooks into Apple'I've never regularly used an RSS reader, because I would add a lot of feeds, then when I'd open it, I had all these things to read and that little number badge would be in the hundreds staring at me from my springboard. I happen to be one of those people that if there's a number badge on an app, then it needs to be resolved immediately. So I deleted the app. Resolved, right?!? Not exactly what should be done...

Getting back to the app - The resolution to my issue was using the Notifications app. This allowed me to set up certain RSS feeds to be checked and Push notifications to be sent to me. Notifications doesn't only do push for RSS, but Twitter, Gmail, and if you know how to code, then these are some bits of code that you can utilize on your website. So the app applies to both beginner & advanced iPhone users.

Chinese Online Retailer Sells Five iPhones in First Two Weeks

Twitter is previewing a new iPhone-friendlier version of their website, mobile.twitter.com, this time "eating their own dogfood" by using the same APIs they provide to developers.

Apple Ending Clickwheel iPod Games?

Apple Ending Clickwheel iPod Games?

Could Apple be ending the old-school clickwheel iPod games? Perhaps, according to a comment by developer Square Enix:

the iPhone Song Summoner contains both Song Summoner and Song Summoner 2, which was never released due to Apple ending support for click wheel games.

No doubt iPhone and iPod touch gaming has become a juggernaut, and the traditional iPod nano and iPod classic are slowly winding down in popularity. But is this the first portent of Apple going all-in with the iPhone OS platform?

iPhone in China Not Selling So Well... Official Version at Least

No big sales in China, it seems, and no big surprise given the low initial numbers we saw, and the prevalence -- and huge pre-existing install base -- of black and gray-market iPhones (with wifi!) smuggled into the country. And if that sounds apologist'ic, yeah, sorry. But iLounge is reporting:

Taobao.com, the largest Chinese e-commerce web site reports that it has sold only two 8GB iPhones and three 16GB iPhones since it began selling them on Nov 22nd.

So, sky fallen for the iPhone in China? Still fall

ThurReflecting on iPhone-doubters Past

Not sure if it's the year winding down, or malaise with alternatives, but a variety of sites have begun once again re-listing the quotes of competing executives who doubted Apple or the iPhone had potential, staying power, or even any chance for success what-so-ever. 3 generations, 40 odd million units, 100,000 applications, and 2 billion downloads later, these revisitations include:
