Bluetooth keyboard and iPhone in use





You probably remember a video that we showed you a while ago: communication of the iPhone and the Apple Wireless keyboard via Bluetooth. That video was described by all as a fake. So the author created another video.

Both the keys and the display are in camera focus at the same time, iPhone is in Airplane Mode (so WLAN is intentionally off here) and it uses a simplified mechanism for key event injection (so there is no “VNC running on localhost” icon any longer).

I believe this video is not a fake, but where is bluetooth icon ...?

iPhone's Wallpaper with notes and calendar events [AppStore, Free]



iphonepaper

Wallpaper Labeler (AppStore link) and gCalWall Lite (AppStore link) let you add appointments and notes to the home screen. With Wallpaper Labeler, you can enter any text you want to your wallpaper, so you can leave yourself (or whoever finds your phone) notes. The other app, gCalWall, pulls down upcoming appointments from your default Google Calendar and splays them all over your home screen. You have to update it manually, which is kind of a drag, but the dev says that iPhone API won't allow for automatic updating. Both apps are free :-)

In the past you could only use Intelliscreen paid app on a jailbreaked iPhone.

Preview: SpinBoard rotates the icons of the Springboard



iSpazio published several screenshots of an app called SpinBoard. SpinBoard will be available in three different versions, and they've got the third one, rotating icons only 90, 180 and 270 degrees, just as the video shows.

It is not without bugs, however it works nice on the iPhone and very very poorly on iPod Touch.
