iOS 5 release is upcoming, are you ready for the 200+ new features?
So what are we waiting for?
What are those features, seen by many as Steve’s latest legacy?
Better Notifications: iOS 5 will include the new Notification Center, which can be accessed by swiping your finger downward on any iPhone screen. You can customize which notifications appear, including emails, texts, Game Center updates and weather. The point is to make notifications less like that interrupting cow in your knock knock joke.
iMessage: The new messaging feature allows iOS users to communicate over …
Update to our previous iOS 4.3 post: iOS 4.3′s new Personal Hotspot works on iPhone 3GS – albeit only with cable and Bluetooth pairing!
Long-time friend Enrico has just tested iOS 4.3 on an iPhone 3GS and checked that Personal Hotspot, the internet connection sharing feature of 4.3, runs happily although only via the iPhone cable or a Bluetooth-paired connection.
So, as far as we know, Wi-Fi sharing is available only for iPhone 4.
As a result, iPhone 3GS users can still enjoy their beloved toy and share connectivity to iPad (non-3G) or …
Apple iOS 4.3 is now available for download from Apple for all iPad, iPhone 4 and 3GS, iPod touch (3gen and 4gen)!
We’re now testing and trying out all new features and will report soon.
A brief feature list include:
Airplay: now greatly enhanced and available to most multimedia devices in your home!
iTunes sharing (at last!)
Personal hotspot (iPhone 4 only): the perfect solution to turn your iPhone 4 into a wireless gateway for all devices (and get over tethering).

Interactive Alphabet from Pi’ikea was awarded as Best Kids’ iPad app of the year from iLounge, as part of their annual Readers’ and Editors’ Choice Awards.
Among many learn-the-alphabet-and-pretend-to-have-fun apps, Interactive Alphabet is actually funny to use for toddlers, pre-schoolers and parents thanks to massive interactivity and lots of graphic and sound effects.
The app is universal and runs on iPhone and iPod touch too, for US$ 2.99 or € 2.39.
When every letter is an authentic toy, every touch is lots of fun.

Universal Mind bills iBrainstorm, its free iPad app, as a “creative collaborative tool.” The productivity offering aims to replace the whiteboard—or at least move the whiteboard onto the iPad’s touchscreen. When iBrainstorm undergoes further upgrades, I might be able to get behind that vision. Until then, you’ll want to stick with a physical whiteboard.
Essentially, iBrainstorm turns an iPad screen into a drawing surface, one with a brownish hue. You use your finger as a black dry-erase felt-tip pen to make notes, draw, or scribble down whatever you want on the …

A father+son team from Park Slope decided NASA wasn’t doing enough to document the stratosphere, and decided to take matters into their own hands.
After testing their “19-inch helium filled weather balloon” in Brooklyn, Luke Geissbuhler and his son Max headed upstate and launched the device, complete with a camera and an iPhone, into space… nearly 19 miles (around 100,000 feet) above the Earth’s surface.
The craft was an 19-inch helium-filled weather balloon attached to a Styrofoam capsule that housed an HD video camera and an iPhone (!).
The camera recorded video …

Julian Horsey at Geeky Gadgets showed an innovative and comfortable way to make iPhone and iPad work in collaboration: the iPad iPhone Connector Clip!
That’s a DIY project made with plastic extrusion, a Dremel drill, superglue, enamel paint and sufficient chutzpah to put everything in place with good precision.
The same procedure allows for two iPhones, or two iPads, to be mounted together. Are there apps for that?
When you have done with all your usual trivialities on your iPhones and iPads, think of creating some beautiful fractal to relax and delve in a mathematic field so unknown that if you zoom enough you will be looking at fractal areas that nobody else ever looked at! [guaranteed.—Ed.]
Chromatic Chaos from Ardeasoft can help you in the endeavour, since you can zoom literally billions of times and get fractals comparable in size with Jupiter’s orbit.
Fractals can be saved in a gallery, or images can be saved in the photo album. …

Andrew and Alexa Kaz released Ruler 2.0, a small and good innovation of the ruler concept: instead of make little markings mentally match an object, Ruler is just a matter of aligning a pointer: alas, the exact measure value instantly appears.
Ruler 2.0 has an introductory price of US$ 0.99, € 0.79, and comes as a free update for buyers of version one.
But, this time, just version 2 of version 1 it is not: Andrew and Alexa point out that Ruler 1 was, by their admission, ugly and they rewrote the …

Are you a mobile warrior?
That is, do you stick to the definition of “a worker using any mobile device (including laptop, netbook, smartphone, cellphone or tablet) who accesses networks (other than the corporate LAN or WLAN) for work purposes.”?
Even if the answer is no, you may be interested about mobile devices being used around you.
iPass, a leading provider of enterprise mobility services, has just published a report that outlines technology devices usage and issues related to working people on the move.
The survey respondents were asked about their mobile productivity, work …
A full MMORPG on the iPad, for free? You got it. It’s Pocket Legends by Spacetime Studios, LLC.
Just forgive the cartoonesque appearance of characters and make one. Then jump in and find others to play together. The rest is hack, slash, and dungeoneering.
Don’t look for the World of Warcraft-polish, though. Some location isn’t properly tuned for your difficulty level, for instance. But, the game really delivers and, heck, given what you pay you get an astounding performance/price ratio!
The app is optimized for iPhone too, and it looks like a miracle. …
Apple released iOS 3.2.2 for the iPad and, of course, iOS 4.0.2 for the iPhone.
The release fixes a critical bug, used by jailbreakme.com to jailbreak iOS devices in a breeze, but way more potentially nasty if exploited by malware.
At the moment there’s no news of such an attack circulating and maybe no one will come. But, do a favor to yourself and your iPad, and please update NOW.
Those who prefer it jailbroken have to wait a little, we suppose, just the time to get noticed by Dev-Team or whoever else …
CNN has launched an international news app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, in a move described by the company’s VP for mobile as “revolutionary”.
The interactive app enables users to follow news from across CNN’s outlets, as well as providing a section dedicated to their iReport platform.
The network launched a US-only, paid news app last year but the international version, which became available today, will be free to users outside of the US.
Speaking to Journalism.co.uk at the Frontline Club event on mobile newsgathering, CNN’s VP for mobile Louis Gump said …
