I bet many Macworld attendees are getting an iPhone Life expiration notice in the mail. At this year’s expo, the iPhone Life booth ran out of free magazines and allowed visitors to order a free copy online. We filled out our email on a form and they emailed us a link to a payment site for a copy of iPhone Life. The payment site listed the price of the subscription as $0.00.
When Game Center was released, I thought, “Ha, wouldn’t it be fun to have Game Center in one of my apps!”. Well, I added support in BART Fares and the free update was released last week.
I guess “death” would be too strong a word. In the beginning of the AppStore, the Prerendered Icon Flag was rarely used. Most apps on the App Store consented to having a gloss effect applied to them.
In all the fanfare over the iPad version of iOS 4.2. The 4.2 for iPhone update is being suffocated. I was trying to to get my birds to memorize a ringtone today when I clicked on the SMS alert setting in the Settings app. The new SMS alerts play longer than the original alerts. These new additions seem much more creative than the original set, even though we still cannot select a custom sound to play.
BART Fares didn’t have much functionality before yesterday. It would just retrieve the current fare using the BART API. I was thinking about features that bay area travelers would find useful. One feature that BART Fares was missing was the ability to locate a nearby station.
