Original Skype for iPhone



skype_logo

GigaOM reports that an iPhone version of Skype may be released as soon as next week, possibly at the CTIA Wireless trade show in Las Vegas.

A few months ago, I asked Skype CEO Josh Silverman when was he going to launch the iPhone version of the P2P voice and IM service that has now been downloaded more than 405 million times. He smiled and said, "Stay tuned." And so we did.

A tipster, a very reliable one, tells me that Skype is almost ready to launch that iPhone version, perhaps as soon as next week. CTIA Wireless, a large mobile industry trade event, kicks off in Las Vegas next Wednesday, so perhaps the announcement will be made there. I am working on getting more details, as well as screenshots of the service.

For now we can use Fring, which is free and works just fine.

Polar coordinates clock for the iPhone [AppStore, Free]



PolarClock is the official polar coordinates clock for the iPhone/iPod Touch. It has arcs which extend from 0 degrees to 360 degrees as the interval (i.e. hour, min, sec) extends. The arcs reset once they reach the end of the arctic interval. It's an interesting and unique way to visualize the time and the moon!

This app is avaliable via AppStore (link). The price is $0.99. There is also a free app called Arctic Clock (link), which provides similar functionality.

xGPS: Turn-By-Turn Voice Navigation for iPhone [Cydia]



xgps

xGPS uses Google's map data and driving directions, adding a real-time navigation readout and a voice engine. You can also select a map area to download ahead of time, just in case you expect to lose your data connection during the drive. There is also a night mode for those who hate bright white screen shining at night.

xGPS without vocalization in already available in Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones. The new version 1.2 will be ready in a week or so.

Sounds like one more reason to jailbreak. Watch the video, how this nice app works:

The iPhone Becomes a Web Server



serversman

This is a new iPhone application which just debuted in Japan's App Store. Called "ServersMan@iPhone", the application allows your iPhone to appear just like any other web server on the internet.

Once the app is installed, PCs on the internet can access the iPhone to upload or download files through a browser or they can use the webDAV protocol. If the PC and the iPhone are on the same network, the PC can connect directly. If they are on separate networks, then FreeBit's VPN software will engage the connection.

At the moment, the ServersMan@iPhone is only available in the Japanese App Store, but an English version is coming in March. A port for Windows Mobile devices is also under development.
