OpenClip - Copy/Paste for iPhone





One of the common complaints about Apple’s iPhone–and one that did not get solved with the launch of the iPhone 3G–is the lack of a copy-paste function. An independent developer Zac White has taken matters in his own hands and founded a non-profit, open source, community project called OpenClip which is offering iPhone developers a free Copy and Paste framework that will add this functionality to their applications.

(You must have at least one app backed up in order to see this option).

iPhone's firmware 2.0.2 is out



Apple just released new firmware for iPhone - version 2.0.2. As usual, all the company mentioned was that the update includes "Bug fixes."

Notes on the release follow:

  • No new settings appear to have been included.
  • Some users report faster browsing, though this may be due to cleared cache.
  • Typing lag may be reduced.
  • No consensus on improved 3G connectivity.
  • iPod Touch firmware 2.0.2 also released.

But as always, do not update until we get word on a jailbreak.

Links for firmware downloads: iPhone 3G 2.0.2old iPhone 2.0.2.

Network problems - just 2%, but it's 60 000 users



A MacForums reader claims to have received a one-sentence e-mail from Steve Jobs regarding iPhone 3G connectivity issues.

According to MacForums, the e-mail says the following:

We are working on some bugs which affect around 2% of the iPhones shipped, and hope to have a software update soon.

Steve

If we're to trust Cote Collaborative analyst Michael Cote's estimate of 3 million iPhone 3Gs sold since July, 2 percent translates to about 60,000 users having problems with the 3G network. The reported issues have ranged from difficulty staying on the 3G network to slow overall performance.

Installer 4.0b5 is out



Installer 4.0 beta 5 is avaliable now.

What's new:

  • Many visual enhancements and fixes in regards to source and packages display.
  • Fixed an issue with failing installs with dependencies under some circumstances.
  • Fixed a bug causing package information to be displayed incorrectly (size 0 bytes) on the first access, or when the custom information HTML page (such as packages from Big Boss' repository) was not displayed.
  • When updating a package, and one of its dependencies also has an update available, the dependency will be updated as well.
  • The package icons will only be downloaded when on the Wi-Fi to help you save on bandwidth.
  • The repositories are being refreshed upon Installer.app launch so you always stay on the bleeding edge with the updates. This is exeperimental behavior and we're not yet sure it will make it to the final release.
  • Fixed a script command Confirm that was returning invalid button index for the "OK" button.
  • Lots and lots of both cosmetic and internal application core fixes that improve the overall performance, presentation and stability of the application.

Community Sources package is updated. It now includes a repository for modmyifone.com (lot's of stuff there) and iphone-notes.de (BSD Subsystem and OpenSSH), as well as numerous carrier bundles and other useful stuff.

Disable Apple's kill switch



You probable know, that some time ago software developers have found a line of code buried in the iPhone's operating system that could enable Apple to remotely delete applications stored on the device that it no longer approves of. This is known as "Apple's kill switch".

Now you can turn this OFF using BossPrefs 2.12b. This is a major feature in 2.12b version. Avaliable for download from Cydia Installer.

iPhone 2.1 beta 4 - no push notification feature



Apple has just seeded iPhone 2.1 beta 4 to developers—uninteresting, really, except for the fact that the push notification service has been pulled from the release "for further development."

Targeted to hit your iPhone in September, the push service allows apps to receive notifications (internet data) in the background while they're not running, a godsend for AIM and other messaging apps. Hopefully this doesn't mean it'll be delayed.

TomTom for iPhone is coming soon



MSNBC recently spoke with several GPS manufacturers about their plans to develop a turn-by-turn GPS solution for the iPhone. Such a program is likely some months away. Several of the 'bigs' in the business — TomTom, Garmin and Magellan — are interested.

"We have made our navigation system run on the iPhone; it looks good and works very well," said Dutch-based company TomTom, in a statement to MSNBC.com. "We will have to look more closely to Apple’s strategy before we can say more about what kind of opportunities this will bring us,:".

"We’re always looking at new phone platforms to expand into for Garmin Mobile, but we don’t have any announcements regarding the iPhone at this time," said Jessica Myers of Garmin International. Magellan spokesman Raphel Finelli said the company does "not have immediate plans for this, but we are looking into it."
