Another choice from XGear for a case that also allows you to use Apple’s popular Smart Cover whilst the iPad 2 is encased in it is the XCase. XCase looks to be one of the more solid choices for such a case. Read on to find out how it compares.
Apple’s Smart Cover is a conveniently functional, well, cover that only protects the iPad 2′s display. With XGear’s Smart Cover, the company looks to present customers with an option for a case that protects the iPad 2′s back designed to be used in conjunction with the Smart Cover to make
There has always been something I have liked about the flip case design. It gives you not-so-blatant choices for use. For example, a user can keep his or her iPhone inside of the case at all times or decide to use the case more so as a pouch, taking the
You may remember that in iPhone 3.0 a bug was discovered which kept email messages on POP accounts from being properly deleted. A demo of the bug can be seen here. At the time it was believed that Apple was aware of the issue and that a fix would likely appear in the 3.1 update. Just as we expected, several people we've talked to report that the bug seems to have been resolved in iPhone OS 3.1. In fact, the issue may have been fixed earlier on in developer preview builds of 3.1. Good news for those of you worried about the security implications of this bug!
Yesterday Apple seeded a beta of iPhone 3.1 to developers to test with their applications. Although not listed with release notes, iPhone 3.1 comes with quite a few noticeable improvements as well as bug fixes. Forum member 370GT pointed out that 3.1 now comes with the option to save edited video as a copy instead of overwriting the original. He also pointed out that the phone vibrates when you start moving icons, and Voice Control now works through bluetooth headsets. We've also noticed that boot time has been greatly improved. Also noted yesterday, MMS is enabled by default in 3.1, although the required service option hasn't been enabled by AT&T.
Lots of the incredibly welcome changes in iPhone 3.0 seem to be little changes and this one is sure to please you frequent texters. From any SMS/MMS message, an "Edit" button has been added to let you select individual messages for deletion or forwarding in another message. This one really comes in handy for those who like to hold onto those SMS conversations, except for that one embarrassing, drunken text you sent to that one girl. You know who you are. Use wisely!
It's been a few days since iPhone 3.0 was released to the public and there's a lot of stuff in there! We've been playing with the software for quite some time and decided to compile a list of our favorite new features. Some of these are very high profile features, but we're hoping that we'll be able to point out a few things you haven't discovered yet. Read on for the big list!
Moving icons to different pages on the Home screen seems to have always been an arduous task. We posted a tip about this very thing a while back, but the iPhone 3.0 update has made things even easier! Before the update, moving icons to a new page meant it would take up space on each page as you moved it across. Now, moving an icon and holding it at the edge of the screen will continue scrolling to the next page until you move it away. Give it a try! It's much better!
And... it's live! Apple has officially released iPhone 3.0 to the general public. It can be downloaded through iTunes by clicking the "Check for Updates" button in the iPhone source page. It's available for both original iPhone and iPhone 3G owners at no cost. iPod touch owners can get the update for $9.95. In case you were curious, the version available in iTunes carries the same build number (7a341) as the GM developer seed.
Clever folks with clever tricks have once again found a way to enable tethering on iPhone 3.0. The workaround allows AT&T subscribers (among others) to enable tethering without hacking or paying a fee. It works by tweaking the carrier settings with an iPhone configuration profile. After installing the profile, tethering is automagically enabled! Rumor has it that you can enable MMS in the same manner, although the file currently available doesn't seem to enable it. We've heard that it might disable Visual Voicemail, although we haven't tried it yet.
