Test your hearing with iPhone





An effective hearing test that measures your threshold of hearing for sounds of different frequencies.
Find out just how far your ears can hear ranging frequencies.
Most of the people should be able to hear up to around 15kHz. From around 17kHz upwards, we get into a range that only the under 20's can hear.

  • With this version, you will test your frequency threshold, using static volume tones.
  • Using the iPhone headphones, you will be asked to adjust the iPhone volume, for clear and effective playback tones.
  • Your left and right ear will be tested alternately with every frequency, from the above frequency ranges.
  • After the test has been completed, you will get a report of your hearing frequency response.

App is $0.99 in AppStore (link).

Apple and Adobe collaborate on Flash for iPhone



Bloomberg reports that Adobe's Chief Executive Officer Shantanu Narayen has revealed that Adobe with Apple on bringing Flash support to the iPhone:

It's a hard technical challenge, and that's part of the reason Apple and Adobe are collaborating, Narayen said today in a Bloomberg Television interview from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The ball is in our court. The onus is on us to deliver.

Flash is a very popular web plug-in that is used to deliver animation and video content on the web. Apple's iPhone has notably not supported Flash since its launch.

The surprising part there is the admission that Apple is working with Adobe on the project.

Saved from a ticket by an iPhone



TUAW reader Paul tells a nice story, how his iPhone helped him to avoid getting the ticket. He was driving on a Midwestern road covered with blowing snow. He slowed down for a car stopped on the side of the road, but the car behind him hit his rear bumper, doing damage to both cars.

The officer who arrived to investigate asked Paul for his insurance card. Of course, that was when Paul realized it had expired the month before, and he didn't have the latest card in his wallet. The officer said it would be $200 for not being able to prove insurance coverage, and since Paul didn't have the cash it meant putting his license up for bond.

While the officer was doing the paperwork, Paul used his iPhone to log into his Geico Insurance account via the web. He was able to request a PDF copy of his card, which was emailed to his iPhone; then he displayed it to the officer. Happily, the deputy accepted the card as proof of insurance and did not issue the citation.

Most police agencies wouldn't be so open to the idea of looking at a downloaded document, but in this case, at least, it is yet another reason to love the iPhone.
