iCan ABC for iPhone hits the App Store [giveaway]

Monkeybin Studios' new alphabet learning game, iCan ABC, has hit the App Store.

  • Learning methods by pre-school teachers
  • Designed by parents
  • Developed by parents
  • Tested on pre-schoolers
  • Soothing music
  • Graphics designed for the right ages
  • Different gameplay for all stages of learning the alphabet
  • Children safe game
  • Professional vocals for all letters

I've spent a few minutes with this app and it is going to be a fabulous learning tool for my daughter when she's old enough. I particularly like that the "host" of the game is a Police Officer because it will help give children a positive association with cops.

The good folks at Monkeybin Studios have given us a few promo codes to give away to you, our awesome readers! For a chance to win, let us know who would benefit from you having this app - your son, daughter, niece, nephew, sibling?

iCan ABC is available for for $0.99. Screenshots after the break.

UK broadcaster ITV launches its iPhone and iPad catch up app ITV Player

UK television channel ITV has released its catch up TV app, ITV Player. ITV Player is the first mobile app released that will allow you to watch ITV programs on you iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The content will be offered within the app for 7 days after it was originally screened live. You can also browse through recommended programs, search by channel or alphabetically and view the app in portrait or landscape.

The free app which is disappointingly WiFi only, offers content from the four ITV channels available in the UK. These are ITV1, ITV2, ITV3 and ITV4. All the video content is streamed from within the ITV Player app. There does not appear to be any AirPlay support.

How to cost-effectively deal with Lodsys and other app patent trolls

How to cost-effectively deal with Lodsys and other app patent trolls

Florian Mueller from FOSS Patents has put up a heart-breaking yet pragmatic set of recommendations for developers on how to cost-effectively deal with Lodsys and other patent trolls who target small, independent app makers. (If you're a mega corporation with billions of dollars in the war chest this obviously doesn't apply to you.) While Apple has filed a motion to intervene, there's no guarantees that it'll work, and it's unknown what, if any, support they're providing iOS developers beyond that. Google has yet to do or say anything, leaving Android developers entirely in the lurch. So...

iPhone 4 prototype going for 70K on eBay... until Apple has it taken down

iPhone 4 prototype going for 70K on eBay... until Apple has it taken down

Stop us if you've heard this story before, but a sketchily sourced bit of rare Apple kits hits eBay -- say an iPhone 4 prototype similar to the one Gizmodo got their hands on last year -- and people start to bid crazy amounts of money for it... before Apple legal ultimate has it removed from auction. (And no doubt sends post-cog commandos crashing through some skylights, somewhere.)

It's right now at $70K and climbing. So enjoy the spectator sport while it lasts.

iPhone 4: One year later

iPhone 4: One year later

Just over one year ago, Apple launched iPhone 4. Typically that would mean a newer, shinier iPhone would have taken its place by now, and it'd be that iPhone we'd be talking about. But not this year. This year there won't be a new iPhone -- an iPhone 5 -- until fall, and that means iPhone 4 is still, one year later, the flagship iPhone on the market.

We've reviewed the original AT&T/GSM iPhone 4, we've reviewed the Verizon/CDMA iPhone 4. We've even reviewed the flipping white iPhone 4. We looked at iPhone 4 after 3 months on the market and we've written post after post about it, day after day, over the course of the last year.

So how does it stack up? Is the A4 still a good chipset? Is the Retina Display still the best screen in the business? Is the industrial design and fit and finish still above and beyond all other contenders? Is it still on of the best phones on the market?

We put the question to the staff here at TiPb and the greater Smartphone Experts Network, and here's what they had to say.
