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.

iPhone 2.2: Google Street View, Emoji, Auto-Correction Off



Apple released firmware version 2.2 beta 1 a bit more than a week ago. Couple more features were hiden there.

First of all Apple has addressed one common request within the iPhone's Keyboard settings, allowing users to disable the iPhone's auto-correction.

The other feature is for Japanese market - Japanese emoji icons. The lack of emoji support has been blamed as part of the reason for slow iPhone adoption in Japan.

The third new feature is Street View. It allows users to view panoramic street level photographs in select cities within the Google Maps application.

Hopefully we will see more new features in this and next beta's of 2.2 firmware.

ApolloIM and MobileChat are joining



Both ApolloIM and MobileChat were jailbreak applications for chatting on the go with your iPhone/iPod touch. Alex Schaefer, ApolloIM's founder, has recently joined the MobileChat development team. In a blog posting by the developer of MobileChat, he said that both applications underwent "friendly competition" and that, while there was no clear winner in the iPhone IM business, users got the benefit from the ongoing competition.

Now that Alex has joined the other team, you can expect that MobileChat will only get better. The post goes on to mention that Alex will be working on stability and user experience for the application.

New firmware 2.0.1



The main purpose is bug fixing. Many applications work faster. Here is the list of changes:

  • Drag an app icon across multiple pages in one motion, rather than having to drag it, drop it, pick it up again and drag it over to next page, and repeat.
  • Contacts are now more responsive.
  • Backup is much faster.
  • Apple may have changed the calibration of the iPhone's reception "bars" while connected to a 3G network to reflect a stronger signal than before.
  • Keypad loads quicker.
  • Screen rotation in Safari appears to be smoother.
  • Some apps may ask to be updated after the firmware upgrade.
  • SMS typing faster.
  • Google Apps works faster.
  • Netshare still works (for those who use it).
  • Works with iPod.
  • Multimedia content is kept after update.
  • No Support from Pwnage and WinPwn. If you update you'll loose unlock and jailbreak.

iRCm for iPhone with 2.0 firmware



IRCm is a GUI-based Internet Relay Chat client for the Apple iPhone, by Chris Lott (aka pogi) and Nicholas Penree (aka drudge). The app is pretty rough, but for the most part works as it did on 1.1.4.

It is the first and only GUI iRC client for iPhone 2.0. Note: this is ported from SVN 36 in googlecode.

IPhone applications are in iTunes Store



Here are the news from Apple: "When the iPhone 3G goes on sale tomorrow, more than 500 native applications will be available on the revolutionary new App Store — including more than 125 free applications."

But the applications are already there!! Because in some parts of the world it is already July 11. And what is great, there are many free applications. For example, Remote, AIM, Google Mobile, NYTimes, Myspace Mobile.

Users can download applications directly from new IPhones or through iTunes.
