iOS 4.3 for Verizon iPhone -- missing in action?

Apple just announced iOS 4.3 was coming March 11... but didn't mention the Verizon iPhone in the list of supported devices. Was that just an oversight, are we overly sensitive, or will the CDMA radio stack require some additional time for Apple to get iOS 4.3 out to the device?

It's not like Verizon owners will miss personal hotspot, but if it does take longer we'll miss Apple's previously rock-solid record of delivering updates to all devices, all at once.

Again, maybe we're over reacting so more as this develops...

Daily tip: how to create HTML rich e-mail on your iPhone using Markdown Mail

Curious how to create rich, HTML email iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? iOS may show you fancy emails but it doesn't natively support creating them. However, there are tons of apps available that allow you to do so. Which one you choose is really a matter of preference. I've tried a couple and found Markdown Mail to be my personal favorite. Obviously you'll have to learn markdown if you don't already but I promise, it's dead simple. There's even a link in-app to a help page with all the syntax. Jump through to see how using Markdown Mail (or any other HTML e-mail app) can allow you to create HTML rich e-mails.

Imagining iOS 5

While in previous years Apple has debuted products like iPhone, MacBook Air, and iPad in January and done an iOS preview in March, this year's iPad 2 launch event is March 2, leading some to believe Apple will eschew a separate event and introduce iOS 5 on the same day. So, just in case Apple goes for the 1-2 combo punch, just in case Scott Forstall takes the stage to "blow away" developers and users with what's next, we want to be ready.

Apple begs the question -- what will 2011 be the year of? We'll give you our want list, after the break.

Gogo Navigator for iPhone offers good navigation at a good price

Gogo Navigator supports real-time turn by turn navigation throughout the United States and Canada at a decent price. I recently looked at Garmin StreetPilot for iPhone which is currently priced at $34.99. While the app had a great interface and offers turn by turn navigation, I found it had one huge down side. StreetPilot does not store maps natively. This means if you're out of range of a signal you won't be able to access maps since they can't pull from the servers.

Gogo Navigator uses native maps for navigation. Regardless whether you have a signal or not, you can still get turn by turn directions. They offer maps in regular view as well as real-time 3D view. You also have the features you'd expect from a good GPS app like favorites and places of interest (POI). Gogo Navigator is currently priced at $29.99 in the app store which is a great deal for a decent GPS app. It's a much lower price point that most and I found it did the job just as well as some of my other GPS apps. Hit the jump for some screens!

MobileNotifier is a great start to what iOS notifications should be [jailbreak]

MobileNotifier is a great start to what iOS notifications should really look like. Keep in mind this app is still in beta before you go replacing LockInfo. I've been playing with MobileNotifier today and it's got a lot of potential.

One thing I really like is the ingenious way MobileNotifier makes use of the wasted space while multitasking. When the tray is pulled up, the top of the screen is really just a bunch of empty space. Why not make use of it? MobileNotifier does by putting all your notifications in it. The latest beta also adds support for a lockscreen mode. The app doesn't currently have any built-in settings but we'll have to keep in mind it's an early release of the app.

With an early release comes compatibility issues and bugs. BiteSMS currently doesn't seem to want to populate in MobileNotifier for me. Hopefully this and several other compatibility issues will be addressed in a future beta. Hit the jump for a couple more screens and to find out how you can grab MobileNotifier!

TiPb Asks: Will the iPad 2 event also be the iOS 5 preview event?

Will the iPad 2 event also be the iOS 5 preview event? 2 years ago Apple did Macworld in January and the iPhone 3.0 (iOS 3) preview event in mid March. Last year Apple did the iPad event in late January an the iPhone 4.0 (iOS 4) preview in early April. This year the iPad 2 event is on March 2...

...so does that leave time for an iOS 5 event in April or will Apple have them share the spotlight next week?

Daily Tip: Remove album artwork from the iPhone lockscreen when playing music [Jailbreak]

If you like to jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch, then you'll understand where I'm coming from when I say those who jailbreak also like to customize just about every aspect of their iDevice. Whether it's theming, modding or tweaking, we like things to be different to separate ourselves from the flock.

One of the things I hate about stock iOS is the way album art is always displayed on the lockscreen whenever playing music or listening to podcasts. I'd rather look at the wallpaper I've assigned to my lockscreen rather than some ugly album art, so in this tip we're going to show you how to get rid of it after the jump!
