MoMuni Helps Lost San Franciscans Catch the Bus, But Can't Prevent Sitting Next to This Guy

MoMuni Helps Lost San Franciscans Catch the Bus, But Can't Prevent Sitting Next to This Guy

Ah, the joys of public transportation. Nothing else quite compares to the stimulating experience of standing in the company of drunks and derelicts at a bus stop late in waining hours of Saturday night, waiting for a fuming smoke filled bus to arrive, concluded with sharing a body fluid-stained seat with the unwashed, unwashed masses. But enough about my college days.

If you happen to live San Francisco, a new service called MoMuni provides instant real-time access to bus or train routes and waypoints, right on your iPhone. Users can select the route and stop of the bus or train they're waiting for and then determine how far away the next 3 are. What's more, you can bookmark stops most often used, like commuting from home or work, for example, and access them from a tabbed interface. Nice.

iCrack: iTunes Wi-Fi Store Makes Music Purchase All Too Easy, Dangerously Addictive

iCrack: iTunes Wi-Fi Store Makes Music Purchase All Too Easy, Dangerously Addictive

With the release of firmware update 1.1.1 came something new to iPhone that I think may prove to be its most insidious feature yet; iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store. Now I know that many of you don't purchase music via iTunes, preferring instead to utilize certain ahem free source, but you may sing a different tune once you start rummaging through genres and newly released content on the screen of your iPhone. For me it's becoming an addiction. I have to force myself not to tap on the lovely purple store icon that beckons me to enter and pay pay pay. iPhone has now become a gateway drug to iTunes.

Dev Team Splintering

Dev Team Splintering

It appears that the iPhone dev team is splintering. I wouldn't consider this news usually, but it provides insight as to what folks are working on, and it also shows the frustration of unlockers that are stuck in limbo with 1.0.2 with no way to fix their baseband radio. The splinter group, iPhone Elite, promise that brick reversal is on the way, and soon.

Jailbreak for iPhone 1.1.1 Now Available

The jailbreak for 1.1.1 based on the tiff vulnerability has been out for a few days, but not available for public consumption. It appears that the iPhone Dev Wiki crowd is ready to unleash it on us. To install the jailbreak on a 1.1.1 iPhone, point Safari on your iPhone to http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/beta/. Their exploit code will install Installer.app on the iPhone, assuming you say yes to the prompts.

iBrickr makes iPhone 1.1.1 Downgrade Easy

iBrickr makes iPhone 1.1.1 Downgrade Easy

If you want to downgrade the firmware on your iPhone, iBrickr has an easy option for downgrading the firmware from 1.1.1 to 1.0.2. Thus spoke Nate True:

Just a small update - if you want to downgrade your iPhone from 1.1.1 back to 1.0.2, iBrickr will guide you through it. No button holding either, it's easy!

And if you'd like to download it, iBrickr has its own web domain that will redirect you to the proper place. The update doesn't work with unlocked iPhones that were bricked by upgrading to 1.1.1, but that tool is still on the way from possibly multiple sources.

iPhone Games from Cliff Maier

iPhone Games from Cliff Maier

Longtime forum member Cliff Maier (cmaier in the forums) just posted his sixth full game, making him long overdue for accolades on the front page. All of the games are simple, clean, and optimal candidates for boonies mode data URLs. All of the games are small and make excellent use of the fonts present on the iPhone; due to his careful programming, all of the games com in at around 80k (and even less for ThumbTrek). This is important, as it means that the games will still be eminently playable over EDGE networks.

iRun: Nike+ Sport Kit Coming to iPhone?

iRun: Nike+ Sport Kit Coming to iPhone?

Amidst yesterday's news of iPhone Dev Team's successful jailbreak into firmware 1.1.1, came evidence that Apple and Nike are working to bring iPod Nike+ Sport Kit to iPhone. A text string located deep in the bowels of the firmware's .plist file mentions Nike+ as a supported accessory.

Soon joggers will be running along sidewalks with iPhones on armbands. And I'll be ready and waiting to trip them as they pass me by. Damn joggers!.

Apple Slapped with Class Action Suit for Bricking Unlocked iPhones. Justice Will Be Served

Apple Slapped with Class Action Suit for Bricking Unlocked iPhones. Justice Will Be Served

Timothy Smith of California once loved his iPhone. You could see him wandering the streets of San Jose with his face glued to the phone's shiny black screen, tapping and pinching away, oblivious to everything around him like people crying out for help, oncoming traffic, lamp posts, etc. But that love affair ended over a week ago when Smith updated his unlocked iPhone to the infamous firmware update 1.1.1, rendering it iBricked. Since Apple refuses to support iPhones which have been "tampered with", Smith did what any self righteous American consumer would do... he called his attorney and filed a class action suit.

Review: Incipio Executive OVRMLD Case for iPhone

Review: Incipio Executive OVRMLD Case for iPhone

by Douglas Morse

The Incipio Executive OVRMLD case for the iPhone ($29.95, store link) isn’t exactly a case of style over substance, though you could make that argument. Certainly my review unit’s smooth red leather offset with tan stitching makes a very attractive enclosure for the iPhone. My wife, who has yet to succumb to iPhone fever, remarked that I should keep this case around should she ever change her mind.

It's an even bigger podcast than last week, coming in at almost an hour. We talk about some of the ins and outs of the new firmware, the danger to unlockers, rumors of iPhones abroad in Canada and France, the recent rumors of 2nd party apps, widgets and human interface guidelines, and of course the hacked apps. Then, we talk about Jobs and his reality distortion field, and some of the Apple lawsuits out there. And of course, the community gets the final words.

My Second iPhone Has Arrived, Kool-Aid Never Tasted So Good

My Second iPhone Has Arrived, Kool-Aid Never Tasted So Good

Boys and girls, let me tell you it ain't easy living without your iPhone for more than a week. The phrase Testicular impact comes to mind. It feels like eternity has passed since that dreaded day my inquisitive mind and impatient nature claimed the life of my iPhone. Rather than wait around for iPhone Dev Team to create a resuscitative baseband update, I applied my $100 Apple Store coupon towards the puchase of a second iPhone and succumbed to the siren call of Marimba ringtones.

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Jailbreak

iPhone v1.1.1 Firmware Jailbreak

That's right, the folks at the iPhone Dev reported via TUAW that they have accomplished jailbreaking on iPhones with the 1.1.1 firmware. Third party apps do run, though most of them will require a recompile. Most of the 1.1.1 applications won't work with 1.0.2 firmwares, which isn't surprising -- Apple probably did a bunch of work on their ABI though the API itself remained stable. The jailbreak method isn't ready for general consumption, so they ask our patience, but there are some tidbits that they've found buried in the update: "1.1.1 references both com.apple.mobile.radio and com.apple.mobile.nike". This probably isn't the first of little hidden tidbits about 1.1.1 that we've seen.

iPhone Password Manager: A Challenger Appears

iPhone Password Manager: A Challenger Appears


figure 1: the most important feature is highlighted

There's another password manager on the scene, and this one looks to be the most secure version that I've seen. 1Password is a mac-only application, so there unfortunately isn't a password manager I could securely recommend to Windows iPhone users yet. The application has a little button that sends an encrypted bookmarklet to Safari that you can then sync to your iPhone. You can open the bookmarklet and view your passwords with a master password that you assign within 1Password.
