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.

Landscape Email! TouchType App Now Available in App Store

Update: Wide Email developer Patrick Barry comments below that, according to Macrumors, FOUR landscape email front-ends popped up on the App Store last night, including his own.

We are finally getting closer and closer to the perfect iPhone no? If Apple will not give it to us, 3rd party developers are our only hope. (Whether it is via jailbreaking or Apple's official App Store.)

Tetris Gets Another App Pulled: Only 5 Hours to Get Your Shaker On!

Brian passed on this tip from Kevin Doel. Looks like Tetris is being ever-zealous in broadly defending their "look and feel" trademarks:

Phunkware's Shaker game is being pulled from the market in about 5 hours. The Tetris Company contacted Apple claiming the game is too close to Tetris for comfort.

If this is legit, and you read this post in time, and the FREE game at all interests you, walk -- don't run -- to the App Store and grab Shaker now!

iPhone App Avalanche 12: SpaceTime Converter, iSign, Elements: Flash Cards and aDriverTest!

It's time for App Avalanche 12, and this week we're taking a look at the Education category in the App Store and at what's Good, Better, Best, and, of course, the CrApp. There's an abundance of apps to choose from, and the Education category has pages and pages of good stuff (and some that isn't so good). Here at TiPb, we're all about culling through the mediocrity to see if we can deliver a few precious gems (and one piece of coal, of course!). Let's get started after the break!

Return of the Web Apps?

Is it possible that web apps can return from the dead? It seems to me that the 2.0 firmware pretty much buried the poor web apps six feet under. Even if they are not used nearly as often since we have 3rd party apps along with the App store, it seems as if Apple are quietly tweaking the iPhone for them.

According to a reader over at AppleInsider.com:

Survey Says: iPhone Users in Love... But Have Issues.

So, we've heard all about how the bloggers feel about iPhone 2.0 and the issues surrounding its launch, but we're not what anyone would call -- by any stretch of the imagination -- normal. We love our gadgets hard, and hate their flaws with a breathing passion, so we're skewed from the outset. What about real users, however? You know, the sane ones. What are their impressions?

Technologizer wrote in to tell us about their look into The State of iPhone Satisfaction. 2150+ iPhone Users surveyed, top 7 answers on the board:

Apple Threatening "Scorched Earth" iTunes in the US and Norway?

Looks like Apple might be shutting down iTunes in the US and Norway. At least that's what VP of Internet Services (iTunes, Mobile Me, App Store), Eddy Cue says (via Macrumors):

"If the [iTunes music store] was forced to absorb any increase in the ... royalty rate, the result would be to significantly increase the likelihood of the store operating at a financial loss - which is no alternative at all. Apple has repeatedly made it clear that it is in this business to make money, and most likely would not continue to operate [the iTunes music store] if it were no longer possible to do so profitably."

What's the deal'yo? In two separate, but equally perplexing bits of news, the US Government is thinking of dumping an extra $0.15 surcharge (going to copyright holders) onto digital downloads, which would result in either consumers paying $1.14 a track for iTunes music, or Apple eating the $0.15 itself.
