Just bought that ~$100 TomTom iPhone app and have $120 ($199.95 to be exact) bucks more burning a whole in your wallet? What luck! The matching TomTom car kit has just become available via the Apple Online Store! (Shipping in 2-3 weeks!)
Yes, that's $220 total cost of ownership for TomTom lovers, but it's so hard to set a price on convergence, isn't it? (Especially when that convergence now comes in two parts!)
Recently, I have been doing some freelance job hunting and I've found CraigsMobileList [$0.99 - iTunes link] to be quite helful in sifting through the craigslist search results.
The app also allows you to bookmark searches, post ads, favorite certain results and set filters for your searches. Also, you can keep a recent city search list (helpful if you are looking state-wide results.)
If you're an "usual" on Craigslist, then this app if for you!
TechCrunch is reporting that sales of the iPhone app iFog [$0.99 - iTunes link] have shot up following a T-Mobile commercial for the myTouch (their rebranded Google Android Magic, which in no way is meant to glom any mind share from i(Pod) touch), where Saturday Night Live alum, Dana Carvey demonstrates a similar Android app.
Given Apple's much vaunted 85,000+ apps, it's interesting to see that iPhone owners will look to the App Store, rather than competing platforms, even when competitors show off apps. Congrats to the developers for the boom-by-proxy.
One of TiPb's favorite iPhone games, indeed the game that cost some of us fingerprints on our index fingers, StoneLoops! of Jurassica has been pulled from the iTunes App Store following a copyright infringement complaint from Luxor-maker MumboJumbo. According to the developers' blog Casual Games Harmony:
With Star Wars: Trench WarsTHQ Wireless is finally giving all of the Star Wars fans what seems to be a quality game based off of the classic films. To us it looks like a nice remake of the classic Star Wars arcade game.
Update: Boy Genius has an advanced preview up for the Droid rocking Android 2.0.
OrigiThis time it wasn't the blogshinobi who leaked more details on Verizon's upcoming Motorola Droid "iPhone Killer", but good old Moto itself, according to Android Central:
Motorola just went live with the official Droid webpage and it went into beautifully excruciating detail about this most anticipated device. The early publishing of the website is no longer available but Motorola's mistake is our gain, now we don't have to wait til October 28th to get the nitty gritty specs.
