PocketDyno Free [AppStore]





While browsing cool applications I've found PocketDyno (AppStore Link). This application measures the performance of the vehicle. It uses internal accelerometer, not GPS. So iPod and old iPhone users can try this application.

With PocketDyno you can measure:

  • Estimated horsepower
  • 0 to 60 mph and/or 0 to 100 kmh time
  • Max G's, velocity, distance, etc
  • Imperial or metric results based on locale

I'll definitely try this app today.

Google Chrome for iPhone



The above message is shown at freechromethemes.com. Our guess is that Apple will never allow Chrome to make it to AppStore. However it will probably be avaliable via Cydia for jailbreaked iPhones.

Backgrounder



iPhone-Backgrounder (available for jailbroken iPhones via Cydia Installer) brings another much-desired functionality that Apple's not allowing for legit apps—the ability to run in the background.

This is very usefull for iPhone applications like Skype (Fring), MobileChat, IM+, and many others.

To enable backgrounding for the currently-running instance of an application, press and hold the menu/home button until a message pops-up stating "Backgrounding Enabled". Note that only the current instance will be affected; if the application is terminated and relaunched, the new instance will not have backgrounding enabled.

To properly terminate an application instance that has backgrounding enabled, press and hold the menu/home button until a message pops-up stating "Backgrounding Disabled".

Issues:

  • Application immediately quits when holding menu/home button:

    One possible cause is having the Intelliscreen application installed with the "App Launch Boost" option enabled. This option can be disabled in Intelliscreen settings on the "Performance" page.

  • Application "XXX" runs fine in the background for a while, then suddenly quits:

    This is most likely due to the device being low on available application memory (RAM, not disk space). This can be caused by either having too many applications running at the same time, or by using applications that require a lot of resources. Unfortunately there is no fix for this issue, other than to avoid having too many backgrounded applications.

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.
