itrip

This is one of the first cases of iPhone accessories controlled by an app. iTrip is used in conjunction with a free application called iTrip (AppStore link).

Operation is very simple: connect the Dock accessory, run the iTrip app, click on the "SmartScan" to automatically find the best frequency. Now we can play the music on our iPhone and transmit it to the car radio or home stereo without any problems.

The new iTrip is really well done and is compatible with almost all iPod / iPhone. Costs $50.

Action Menu: Add New features to iPhone's Copy / Paste [Cydia]



Action Menu is a new utility that extends traditional Copy / Paste functionality. You can now "Copy All" or add text to a stack ("Favorites") that allows you to paste phrases frequently at any time and in any application.

IMG_0038 IMG_0039 IMG_0040

The application is free but you can also buy an extension pack (costs $2.99) which will add new features, such as:

  • History: keep the history of all copied sentences / words / numbers;
  • Lookup: find online matches for phone numbers and words, using Google Search, Wikipedia, Dictionary, and Google Translate;
  • Tweet: send selected text through a Twitter client installed on your iPhone (currently support Tweetie, Twitterific, Twittelator and TwitterFon).

We found this utility quite useful. It can be installed via Cydia on a jailbreaked iPhone (iPod Touch).

Skype is updated to version 1.2 [AppStore, Free]



skype_icon

Skype, the iPhone and iPod Touch application through which you can call and chat with your Skype contacts, has been updated to version 1.2. There are many updates and new features.

What's new in version 1.2:

  • Set up call forwarding from your iPhone – forward Skype calls to a phone number when you're not signed in.
  • Improved performance and better audio quality on Skype-to-Skype calls.
  • Even easier to send text messages (SMS) - Send SMS from the Call tab.
  • Calls are connected much faster.
  • Status of your contacts is updated more often.
  • You can now decide whether you want to stay online/offline when the iPhone is  locked. We've added this into settings.
  • Contact groups are now supported, making it easier to see who is online and separate your saved phone numbers.
  • You can now edit the name of your saved phone numbers.
  • Added support for skype: URL schemes in Safari.
  • When creating a new account the country in your Skype profile is taken from the language used on your iPhone.
  • Group chat profile pictures are now shown.
  • You can now remove your profile picture.
  • Added a 'Help' link to 'Forgot your password'.
  • Improved support for proxy configurations.

If you have done jailbreak, don't worry. During first launch Skype will pop up a message showing that it works only on unmodified iPhones and iPods. But it is not true. It works just fine.
