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 🙂
File Management couldn’t be easier, create folders to organise files, work collaboratively.
For a more detailed description of what DropBox can be used for, visit https://www.dropbox.com/features.
Photo & Video Management is great, enabling you to take a photograph or video on your smartphone and access it within seconds on a PC/Mac. This has some very exciting possibilities what a mobile worker can deliver photographs/videos etc back to their office very quickly, effectively anywhere in the world!


MyGas for iPhone


Another useful app for the iPhone is ‘MyGas’ which is a database of Fuel Stations, showing you: 1) Gas Stations on a Map (c/o Google Maps) or 2) Nearby Gas Stations.
As the screenshot shows in the view of ‘Nearby Gas Stations’, it shows useful information giving:
Fuel Station Name
Cost of your chosen fuel (set up in perferences) and when the price was last updated.
To assist in the every growing list of stations, you can also add a new station, not already listed. The fuel prices can also be updated if you’d like to really be helpful! 🙂

Another good source of iPhone/iPad info…


I came across this site recently and have found it to be a useful source of information with PodCasts and Blogs about iPhones and the iPad.

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.
