Now here’s a smart way of sharing files between your mobile device and a PC/Mac! DropBox (www.dropbox.com) works with smartphones running iPhone, iPad, Blackberry & Android OSs. The screenshot here is DropBox running on my iPhone 4, but the following features are generic across all OS platforms.
Synchronise Files automatically between your mobile smartphone and your PC/Mac 🙂
Storage free of 2GB and up to 100GB for a small price. DropBox servers are secure 🙂

iOS 4.2 is out!


Finally, the promised and MUCH anticipated iOS 4.2 software/firmware upgrade for Apple iPhones, iPad & iPod Touches has been released. It was out yesterday and brings the version up to 4.2.1. Be brave and prepared for a process which takes about 30 minutes; it’ll be worth it… so I hope, I’ll blog very soon about what all the fuss over the latest 4.2 upgrade has been about. Oh and iTunes had an upgrade too, now at v.10.1. Watch this blog… 🙂

PayPal releases update to iPhone app


On the 4th November 2010, ‘The Register‘ announced that PayPal has submitted an updated iPhone app. PayPal have found that the previous version failed to check the digital certificates that confirmed the authenticity of the online-payment website. The security risk leaves iPhone users who rely on the app open to man-in-the-middle attacks when connecting over unsecured networks such as Wi-Fi hotspots! A day later, PayPal rushed out an updated version to the app store. The app for Android-based phones luckily wasn’t affected.

TV Guide


I personally don’t watch a lot of TV, often too busy doing other things. However, since I found this app, I’ve found it so useful and convienient when I did have some time to watch TV.

Forget having to hunt for that TV guide/magazine or disturbing a family members viewing whilst you want to pop up the TV guide to see what’s on television. Get a free copy of ‘TV Guide’ for your iPhone/iPod Touch, you won’t be dissapointed 🙂

Magnifier for iPhone


Well, there are programmers out there producing apps filling so many functions! So here’s another…. Magnifier Free for the iPhone is as the name suggests, a Magnifer; which uses the iPhones camera.

The app gives you three levels of magnification: 1x, 2x & 4x as the item is viewed on the screen of your iPhone. When the app’s used on an iPhone 4, it also features a nice little (on screen) on/off toggle switch to turn the LED flash on/off; useful if you’re magnifying something in a poorly lit area.

WCA (Analogue) Clock for iPhone


Having already got a nice add-on digital clock for my iPhone 4, the other day I was looking in the app store for an analogue clock and came across: WCA.
It’s a nice looking analogue clock with a good sized clock face with second hand, as shown in the screenshot. The app is free and also features the functionality of alarms.
Although there are many other analogue apps in the app store, this particular one took my fancy.

Toilet Finder for iPhone


Now, all readers will relate to this one! When you need to go, you need to go!!! Now, didn’t your Mum always say to you, go before you leave home, go before you travel! Well if you’re an iPhone user and need to go, help is at hand with this app 🙂
Toilet Finder by WaterAid is free and a useful or should I categorise it as an ‘Essential’ must have app 🙂 when the app is launched it will, based on your iPhone knowing where you are (with the aid of GPS/the mobile network) give you a list of your nearest public toilets; and the distance you are from them. If you select ‘Map’ it will show you where you are with the standard blue spot courtesy of ‘Google Maps’ along with a Male/Female symbol of those toilets nearby. If you use a public toilet that’s not listed, the app lets you add a new one.
