No longer need you hunt around for a "secret" way to access the iTunes App Store. About an hour or so ago, iTunes finally made it official by promoting the App Store right on the iTunes Store home screen. You might have to sit tight to get a new iPhone 3G, but those of you with existing iPhones can have at it. Which iPhone app are you most looking forward to?
So the iPhone 3G is coming out tomorrow. Are you ready? OK, that's more of a rhetorical question that those who've been lining up in front of Apple and AT&T stores in NYC and San Francisco would call me crazy just for asking. (Though, in fact, it's they who are crazy). The real question is if AT&T is ready. And it looks like it is.
It's only fitting that AT&T announced today that it offers the nation's fastest 3G network, by a significant margin. The claim was made based … Read more
We've swooned over Pandora's new iPhone application, LOL'd at the chat application from AIM, and poked our friends with the new Facebook application. But as we continue to dig deeper into the growing catalog of iPhone applications one thing is clear: there are some stinkers in the mix. Sure, they might we well-coded (or not), but who needs them? We've put together a list of 10 absolutely absurd new iPhone apps.
The release of a tool capable of unlocking first-generation iPhones for use on unofficial carriers as well as allowing full read/write access to the filesystem--thereby enabling installation of unofficial, "jailbreak" applications--is imminent.
The iPhone Dev team has posted a screenshot, seen below, of an iPhone running OS 2.0 with both the App Store (Apple's third-party application solution) and Installer.app (the unofficial third-party application solution) running side-by-side. The iPhone is also unlocked, per the MTS carrier logo -- MTS is an unsupported wireless carrier.
Another screenshot shows the tool "BootNeuter" loaded under iPhone … Read more
NEW YORK--Now this is more like it.
For days, the line at Apple's midtown flagship store for the hotly anticipated iPhone 3G had consisted solely of the crew from Waiting for Apples, who have the dual goal of breaking the Guinness world record for "longest wait for a product release" (or something like that) and simultaneously spreading the word about sustainable agriculture.
Now, three more people have joined them, and these fellows look a whole lot more like what we'd expect people waiting in line for the iPhone to be: Skinny, wearing jeans and black t-shirts, … Read more
By average people we mean, mean people. As we have learned that mean and average are indubitably the same thing. However, we also learned on today's show that men are from Redmond and women are from Cupertino. That and a lot of news that actually isn't about the iPhone. Though we covered that to.

To access the desktop App Store, follow these steps:Download and install iTunes 7.7, if you haven't already Click on the iTunes Store in the left-hand panel Search for current iPhone application, such as Super Monkey Ball Click small gray arrow next to Super Monkey Ball in the search results to go to the app's download page In the top navigation bar in iTunes, click &… Read more
Fulfilling a feature available previously with jailbreak applications, AOL is offering a free instant-messaging client, available through the AppStore, for the iPhone. In our brief testing, the client was a snap to configure, and worked well, but exhibited a few freezes.
When the AIM application is first launched, you are presented with options to use either the AOL instant messaging service or MobileMe. Once you've made your selection, however, we couldn't find an easy way to go back and configure another account.
What does the iPhone 3G have to do with the future of social platforms like Facebook and OpenSocial? A lot, actually.
With more than 550 third-party applications available at launch, Apple's new mini marketplace means that for the first time since the social-application craze started more than a year ago, the hottest new trend has nothing to do with Web-based networks.
"(The iPhone is) a device … Read more
Looks like some big-media deal-making went into this one.
Users can browse their Photobucket albums, as well as upload images from the iPhone to the service with a single click. The application costs $4.99.
But Photobucket had a more interesting announcement on Thursday, namely a multiyear partnership with Ask.com, the search engine owned by new-media conglomerate InterActiveCorp.
Through the deal, Photobucket will use exclusively Ask.com search for its … Read more
