The game is controlled by another iPhone plugged into the audio port





Here's an interesting video, which shows the possibility of transferring data via the audio port. As we can see, there was a small application that can communicate with this game, and simply moving a device, we can control the character.

Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly



9to5Mac has found a string within iTunes with the following statement: "Disconnect your iPod, make sure the SIM card is inserted correctly [...]". Is this a joke, mistake or Apple will create an iPod 3 with a SIM card inside to connect to the Internet?

I bet this is a mistake. But who knows..

Bluetooth keyboard and iPhone in use



You probably remember a video that we showed you a while ago: communication of the iPhone and the Apple Wireless keyboard via Bluetooth. That video was described by all as a fake. So the author created another video.

Both the keys and the display are in camera focus at the same time, iPhone is in Airplane Mode (so WLAN is intentionally off here) and it uses a simplified mechanism for key event injection (so there is no “VNC running on localhost” icon any longer).

I believe this video is not a fake, but where is bluetooth icon ...?

Cydia Store is comming



cydia

A new version of Cydia is comming soon. Here are couple words from the Saurik's letter:

"Cydia store is soon. There will be a release this week with “other stuff” (minor stuff) in it."

The first thing is the name "Cydia Store". So far it is called "Cydia Installer". This could mean that the change concerns the addition of new sections in which the applications will be placed on payment. There will be an implementation of a new system of voting and feedback, similar to th eone in AppStore.

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!

Sygic turn-by-turn GPS navigation



iphonegpsconcept

One of the most elusive and desired apps for iPhone is turn-by-turn GPS navigation. We heard that TomTom was developing a GPS navigator. To date, it hasn't shipped. Recently, the focus has been on xGPS, an app that requires a jailbroken iPhone to work.

At Mobile World Congress 2009 (MWC09) in Barcelona, Spain, Sygic is demoing a version of their namesake GPS navigation software running on an iPhone 3G. The Sygic software uses maps from TeleAtlas, the same company that supplies map data for Google Maps. Sygic produces similar software for Windows Mobile and Symbian devices.

Applicatin has turn-by-turn GPS directions with voice prompts, points of interest, support for multiple countries, and locally-stored maps.

emojifun

Emoji, emoticons and pictorial characters popular in the Japanese instant messaging culture, were introduced to Japanese customers as part of the iPhone 2.2 Firmware update, but have required workarounds to be enabled for non-Japanese users. There are many solutins to turn Emiji Icons (Get Emoji Icons for free), but the easy one required jailbreaking. Recently Apple approved an application that simplifies this process. App is called EmotiFun and it is free (AppStore link).

Everything is simple: get app, run it, exit and go to Settings -> General -> Keyboard -> International Keyboards -> Japanese and enable.
