Everything you need to know about Apple's iTunes, including iTunes desktop software on Windows and Mac, iTunes Store on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and iTunes in the Cloud on iCloud

iTunes started off as Apple's desktop music player for Mac but has since become so much — perhaps too much! — more. iTunes on the desktop now runs on Mac and Windows, and in addition to playing your music, TV shows, Movies, podcasts, and more, also manages and syncs all of that, as well as apps and games, to your iOS devices via USB. The iTunes Store, which on the desktop includes the App Store and the iBookstore, is where you buy all your content. And if you're using iCloud, it's where you re-download iTunes in the Cloud, and manage iTunes Match.

NOTE: If you don't see the microphone icon immediately in the top right corner, tap the Settings button at the bottom right, and switch the slider to "Enabled".

Original post:

Well, it's definitely later than last Friday, but it doesn't look like anyone, including Apple, delayed this long: Google's Mobile App (iTunes link) now includes the much talked about Advanced Voice Search feature... sorta.

Forum Review: SushiTime for the iPhone

SushiTime Forum Review by msbaylor. (Visit the thread for video and more pics. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

So you go to a new sushi restaurant in town, you think, "man I bet they have an awesome yellow tail roll here". You are seated at a table by the beautiful waitress, you open the menu, and low and hold...the menu uses terms that you know nothing about. You think to yourself, "I could ask the waitress, but then she'll think I'm stupid!" That's when it hits you, only the night before, you downloaded Sushi Time to your iPhone. With Sushi Time, you realize, "I don't have to be a sushi pro to eat like one! Sushi Time will demystify many common terms found in sushi restaurant menus as well as fill in gaps for sushi connoisseurs."

So you whip out your iPhone and startup Sushi Time, you scroll down the list to lookup up the word "fugu" your finger shakes with excitement as you realize you are so close to revealing the secrets of the name...You tap it and the app reveals a tile with a picture, hey you "realize that looks like yellow-tail"...

State of the Apps: PCalc Hits 1.2, Dirty Tactics, and a Warning to Developers: Charge More for Apps!

TiPb has been exploring issues surrounding the App Store, especially how developers can earn a living, the various attempts to market apps in a sporting manner, as well the gaming and foul play going on.

In the bright lights category, developer James Thomson (ha! spelled it right that time!) has taken a decidedly humorous approach with the launch of his updated PCalc 1.2 (iTunes link) calculator app:

I think we got off to a bad start last time with version 1.1. It was my fault entirely. I came out with this big release I'd spent months on, sent out my press releases, and not a soul ran a story with the exception of that nice Mr Gruber fellow [Although TiPb did run an interview -- thanks again, James!]. Sales were quite poor and we both said some things we regretted in the morning.

But I understand, don't worry. You're tired of the deluge of iPhone press releases, and everything you see just starts to look the same after a while. I didn't do anything to make it an interesting read and, let's face it, I'm kind of fighting a losing battle with a calculator which - I'll be the first to admit - is next to the flashlights and to-do list apps in terms of reaching saturation point on the store.

Not quite. I rock PCalc on my iPhone, with narry a flashlight in sight!

While PCalc chose humor, some others have gone decidedly darker...

Update: Google Advanced Voice Search Delayed by Apple?

Now after watching the above video, it seems as if Google has made one heck of a voice recognition app. But where the heck has it gone?!

It's pretty clear Google loves the iPhone, that is something we all know. Now why would Apple go ahead and delay their latest App Store app, Advanced Voice Search? Or have the reports of a Friday release been greatly exaggerated? The app was "expected" to make it's appearance in the App Store this past Friday. TechCrunch is now telling us to look for it tomorrow!

Forum Review: SearchDial for the iPhone

Forum Review by cjvitek For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum!

Note: This review was requested on the review request thread.

Search Dial is just that...a searching program for numbers to dial. But it adds a little more functionality into just looking through your contact list.

The Search Dial interface is very straightfoward. When you start the program, you are presented with a screen to select "call", "SMS", or "Email". You then start to type a persons name (first or last) and as your type, contacts that match the description start to appear. The more you type, the more specific you are, and the more it narrows down the contact options. Let's look at each of the options one at a time.

App vs. App: Air Mouse and Snatch

[This is an iPhone blog App vs. App review! Last week, we ran our Shazam vs. Midomi showdown, with Midomi scoring the win. But which commenter won an iTunes gift certificate? Congratulations Patrick! Want your chance to win the winning app this week? Comment below!]

Ever used a laser pointer? Ever used a wireless mouse? Ever wish you could have both in one and more? Well, there are some apps on the iPhone that allow you to do just that! These devices work great! They turn the iPhone into a remote mouse with a virtual touch pad. You use your finger to control the mouse; left-click, right-click, scroll, it makes no difference! You can even create macros to automate launching applications! Let's take a look at two of these apps: Air Mouse [iTunes Link] and Snatch [iTunes Link]
