If you were one of the hundreds of thousands of people who pre-ordered an iPhone 5 directly through Apple's online store, then attempting to check the status of your handset results in an unnerving "preparing for shipment" message. By now, you're probably wondering why your phone is still preparing to be shipped. After all, it does have to travel all the way from China in time for its launch this Friday.
If you've ever gone out with a group of people to a restaurant, whether it be a bunch of colleagues, you and your boss, or even just some friends, you've probably come across the situation of having to divide your bill - a tedious affair that's inevitably accompanied by accusations if you're the one left to do the job. This next iPhone app aims to ease the overall burden of splitting a bill, and it does it inexpensively and quite efficiently.

What with all of the giveaways we've been running over here at iPhone Alley, it's no wonder that the question will arise of how to enter these so called "promo codes" that we giveaway every so often (daily, to tell the truth).

This leaves those users at a disability when it comes to some of our giveaways and also the new website FreeMyApps (click on from iOS device). Registering for a US iTunes account requires a credit card, but fortunately there's a way to bypass that.
