Original Skype for iPhone


GigaOM reports that an iPhone version of Skype may be released as soon as next week, possibly at the CTIA Wireless trade show in Las Vegas.

A few months ago, I asked Skype CEO Josh Silverman when was he going to launch the iPhone version of the P2P voice and IM service that has now been downloaded more than 405 million times. He smiled and said, "Stay tuned." And so we did.

A tipster, a very reliable one, tells me that Skype is almost ready to launch that iPhone version, perhaps as soon as next week. CTIA Wireless, a large mobile industry trade event, kicks off in Las Vegas next Wednesday, so perhaps the announcement will be made there. I am working on getting more details, as well as screenshots of the service.

For now we can use Fring, which is free and works just fine.

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 ...?

Polar coordinates clock for the iPhone [AppStore, Free]

PolarClock is the official polar coordinates clock for the iPhone/iPod Touch. It has arcs which extend from 0 degrees to 360 degrees as the interval (i.e. hour, min, sec) extends. 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!

This app is avaliable via AppStore (link). The price is $0.99. There is also a free app called Arctic Clock (link), which provides similar functionality.

You can download PolarClock as a desktop screensaver: Mac OS X 4.4Mb, Windows 2.0Mb.

No Stack app soon [Cydia]


Remember Stack version 2.2 video posted recently? There will be no 2.2. version and current version (2.1) will be removed from the repository quite soon. Why? The developer is angry at hackers, who cracked his apps avaliable in AppStore:

“I have to work extra hard as it is on creating things for the App Store, but when people like paniK go ahead and make my software available to pirates and I watch sales vanish overnight, it means I have to spend much more time on marketing and development for my App Store apps to try and offset my losses, leaving no time for projects like Stack that earn me nothing.”

Gmap v1.2 [AppStore]


This app didn't work very well in the past. Today has been updated up to version 1.2, which adds numerous bug fixes and real-time turn tracking. It does indeed provide turn-by-turn directions (distance countdown to each turn) by way of GPS. Local points of interest (Food, Fuel, etc.) can be found, addresses can be searched, routes can be edited, detours added, and types of roads can be avoided (highways, toll roads, etc.). If a turn is missed, the route is recalculated. By having actual maps stored on the device itself, it does not require the use of an active internet connection to pull mapping data (like Google Maps).

The 800-900 MB applications each cost $19.99 and carry regional maps for the Western and Eastern halves of the United States (Europe coming soon, some time in March).

Categories updated to v2.23 [Cydia]


Categories allows you to create folders on your desktop. It is a nice application from Cydia, recently updated to version 2.23.

Here is a change list:

  • Fixed issue where users behind a proxy had the app close and safari open in some cases.
  • Worked on memory usage. Fixed a large memory leak. (There is still a memory leak in the configuration part of the app, but it’s not as big. I hope I get time to fix it in the near future).
  • The iPhone 2.1 and newer froze up when trying to respring with less than 7MB RAM. When memory got low, springboard would kill the app causing it to respring and freeze up. The respring flag should now be cleared in most cases when memory gets this low.
  • The app will now detect if it gets closed due to low memory and allow you to continue your editing where you left off.
  • Memory free and respring state are now in the status bar while the app is running

Epiphany: record speech after it's already been said [AppStore, Free]


New iPhone voice recorder travels back in time. A new iPhone app enables users to record speech after it's already been said.

That sounds impossible, but Epiphany is programmed quite cleverly. The moment you launch the app, it's already recording. But it doesn't store the recording until you tap the "Remember that!" button. In the app's settings, you can set how far back you want to record clips (e.g., 30 seconds or 2 minutes).

This will be extremely useful in a number of ways. For example, imagine you're a journalist and you're interviewing a person who rambles a ton but says something interesting once every 10 minutes or so.

Epiphany is free through the App Store (Link).
