Ahh, the movies! While people seem to be going to them less, they are still an experience like no other. But theaters are hurting and need your patronage. One way to get you into the theaters are the previews for movies that look so good you have to see them in the theater. Like most of us, I am not a fan of movie previews though. Even good ones are a part of a huge set that are so lengthy you tend to forget what movie you came to see. TimePlay is one theater chain’s way of getting you to be there for those previews by using fun to get you there early. Continue reading →

Forum users over at the 9to5 Mac Forums have posted two iPhone mockups based on current iPhone rumors. Of course these mockups almost never reach users hands, they’re still fun to imagine using. And then there are some people who take mockups a little too far. Below are two mockups that were created to reflect rumors surrounding the new iPhone that will be released this year and iOS 6 which will be released during Apple’s WWDC in June. Continue reading →
Yesterday marked the day that AT&T, the iPhone’s original carrier since 2007, began unlocking iPhones. Previously, AT&T subscribers were able to have their phones unlocked providing that it wasn’t an iPhone, but that strange policy is now a thing of the past. However, if you’re currently sporting a new iPhone 4S or other model that is still under a 2 year contract, AT&T will not unlock your iPhone. In addition to that, AT&T account holders that are in bad standing with the company also won’t be able to have their iPhone unlocked. Continue reading →
Saving voicemails is important. For various reasons, from legal issues to saving a loved one’s voice, people sometimes need to save voicemails. And they should be able to, right? Well, almost every U.S. cell phone provider deletes voicemails after a certain period of time – from 14 to 30 days. They’re your voicemails, so why are you letting your carrier determine which to delete?
On top of that, iPhone users don’t even have an option to save or forward voicemails despite how “smart” it is. So I’ve created this guide on how to save your iPhone voicemails permanently. It’ll take you five simple steps to complete, and it doesn’t even require jailbreaking your device. Continue reading →
Here’s a new game that will fit nicely into your iOS Games folder: Jetpack Joyride. If you’re a fan of Fruit Ninja or Age of Zombies, you’ll be happy to know that this addicting game was created by the same iOS game development company called HalfBrick. Not only is this game optimized for your iPad (no pixel stretching) and iPhone, HalfBrick also decided to change the price from $0.99 to free, but only for a limited time. Continue reading →
Imagine you have rocking tunes that you want to share with you buddy, but (gasp!) all he has is a gaming system attached to his TV! What do you do? While the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 have support for playing music from Windows devices, they don’t share media well when it comes to iPhones.
Sure, there is iPod support, but if you try plugging in your iPhone it just doesn’t work as well. However, there are a few applications for iOS that will let you play music though your Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 straight from your iPhone. One option is an app I recently found called AirMusic from Plutinosoft. Continue reading →
If there’s one question I get asked from novice iPhone users, it’s “how do I make a phone call?”. Shortly after they’ll ask me how to create their own custom ringtones without paying that hefty $1.29 in the iTunes store. So instead of guiding them through the steps over the phone (or worse case, making their ringtones myself), I’ve decided to create a quick How To guide that’s easy to follow and will take you only 5 minutes to complete once you get the hang of it.

Packed inside the upcoming iOS 5.1 are 4 new wallpapers specifically designed for the iPad. The fine folks over at 9to5 Mac discovered these new wallpapers inside a copy of iOS 5.1 beta. Your choices are two ocean wallpapers, a grassy dew one, and a puddle with rain drops. Although these wallpapers have a 1024×1024 resolution (for both iPad landscape and portrait modes), 9to5 Mac has also sized them down to retina resolutions for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Continue reading →
Earlier today we saw that both the Chronic Dev Team and the iPhone Dev Team have released their respective tools to jailbreak an untethered version iOS 5.0.1. Some of you may have already jailbroke iOS 5.0.1 using an earlier version of the iPhone Dev Team’s redsn0w. Unfortunately that specific exploit left you with a tethered (meaning devices required connecting to a computer to boot) version of iOS 5.0.1. But all that is a thing of the past, and users can now jailbreak their A4 iDevices using redsn0w and Corona. Continue reading →
Zynga’s Poker is one of the largest free to play online poker games in the world. While I will be focusing on the iPhone and Facebook applications of the game, Zynga has also ported it over to Android, Yahoo, and Google+. With apps and games like Hanging With Friends and Words With Friends, I thought it was time to look at one of their first games. Continue reading →
