Again, my case about never playing a match-3 game ever again has been breached. This time, I am very happy with my decision because the result is one so good. The result? Ponk. Making its way into the puzzle/arcade genre(s) is Ponk, a wonderful and colorful match-3 game from iPhone
The iPhone has long been the most camera phone used on Flickr and it's only appropriate that an official App Store application emerge to support this. Per Macworld, Flickr released an official native application [App Store, Free] this past Saturday. The app sports features such as access to a slideshow of your contacts' recent photos, zooming in-and-out in Ken Burns-style, searching, browsing (by sets or tags), viewing recent activity, and uploading pictures snapped with your iPhone.
With the launch of the new iPhone 3G S still more than a week away, the first unboxing photos of the device have already hit the web. The Chinese branch of Engadget has posted photos of the new 32GB device, showing it's familiar exterior and compass and voice control applications. Photos after the break.
Those of us who use a Mac with their iPhone probably grab photos using iPhoto. It's an obvious choice since your Mac already comes with it. However, if you have a lot of photos, you may not necessarily want to fire up iPhoto to import one or two pictures from your iPhone. Instead of iPhoto, try using Image Capture. It's light-weight, straight forward, and it's included on your Mac. Best of all, you can simply drag a photo out of Image Capture right onto your desktop. You can even delete photos on your iPhone. Now that's handy!
Possibly one of the most crippling disadvantages of the iPhone 3G is the fact that it is a physical object. Because of this, it is subject to the same laws of physics and the hazards this can create when it comes in contact to forces, certain kinds of surfaces, or various aqueous or otherwise fluid substances. However, if you're fascinated by seeing wonderful things be destroyed, then you'll like Flickr user maherleagues' photo album.
MacRumors forum user cWeems has posted photos of the iPhone 3G's dock. Sporting a new shape which fits the iPhone 3G's new curved back, the new dock will be sold as a separate accessory, rather than included with the iPhone as it was in the first generation. Read on for photos.
The new redesign of the iPhone's back is leaving some to wonder just how much different it is from the original. We know the obvious things: it's black (or white) instead of silver, it's plastic instead of metal, etc., but is there anything else we should know? Well, if you're curious, iLounge has managed to snap an interesting side-by-side photo of the new iPhone 3G next to an original iPhone to compare exactly how they match up. Picture after the break.
Here's a handy tip that's sure to slim down your wallet and possibly streamline your life just a bit more. This one is simple; by scanning all of the club/grocery cards with barcodes that you have as images, you can hold a virtual wallet on your iPhone in the form of a photo album. Once you've scanned everything in, front and back, save it to an iPhoto album (on a Mac) and sync that album to your iPhone. Every time you update the album with a new card, it'll be synced to the phone. When you're at the store, whip out your phone and bring the appropriate card full screen. If all goes well, the barcode reader should pick it up with no trouble at all.
One of the nice things about using a Mac is that things tend to be more conventient, like when you plug in a digital camera and iPhoto starts up automatically. However, in the case of the iPhone, having iTunes and iPhoto start automatically every time you connect your iPhone can be more annoying than helpful. 37Signals has step-by-step instructions on how to set up an AppleScript that will stop that from happening.
