iPhone apps S/D

The store just went live. Here's a link to it and a link to only the free apps.

You'll need iTunes 7.7 (which was just released) and of course iPhone software 2.0 which I'm still waiting on.

"caek, really are you that much of a dick"

No. You seem to have a v. sandy vagina today. This was far from obvious from your original question, which asked something else entirely. Seriously, how AIM works on iPhone is actually interesting and relevant to this thread, so that's what I thought you were getting at. I got your lovely "ON IPHONE" response when I attempted to clarify and a "thanks for nothing" after I spent a few minutes scrubbing through the keynote video looking for the section I thought you were looking for. So The Google link was in response to you being aggressive and ungrateful toward to a genuine attempt to answer your question. I think you'll live though.

the new itunes remote program sounds amazing, and something I've wanted (and probably posted about on ILX somewhere) for years.

aim app only works while running. You give it yr details once, it remembers them. Tabbed interface -- buddies, statuses and live I'm conversations. It's pretty neat.

Nnw is a disappointment. Offline Reading is nice, but UI not polished, no control over feeds, no unified, poor browser. Very 1.0

iTunes remote is fucking awesome.

Facebook app won't sign in, ffs.

All the book readers are rubbish.

thanks, stet.

caek, i don't see how you were being anything but purposefully obtuse. obviously, i was asking how the official AIM client works on the iphone, from someone who has used it. if my sandy vagina is clouding my vision then i must be mistaken.

cutty, Thursday, 10 July 2008 16:31 (ten years ago) Permalink

I wouldn't say you were obviously asking for first-hand experience with AIM on the iPhone; I assumed you wanted PR-speak "this is how it works"-type hype info, as well.

I took "how does it work" to mean, y'know, "how does it work" not "how is it to use". Apparently you meant the latter. I wasn't being obtuse.

Apple's free Remote Application (iTunes Link) is also available and allows you to "control the music on your computer or Apple TV from your iPod touch or iPhone. Play, pause, skip, shuffle. See your songs, playlists, and album art on your iPod touch or iPhone as if you were right in front of your computer. Remote works with your Wi-Fi network, so you can control playback from anywhere in and around your home."

oooh that is cool!

czn, Thursday, 10 July 2008 17:31 (ten years ago) Permalink

I haven't used the itunes remote app yet (soon I hope!) but from what I've read, it lets you display and play from your computer's itunes library on your iphone/ipod touch. It does it over wifi.

xpost yes that's better put

damn! do any of them at least let you skip to a given page in a pdf? i'd settle for that, really.

AIM will use the push-style stuff, but only when that goes live in september, i believe.

toby, Thursday, 10 July 2008 17:40 (ten years ago) Permalink

Yeh push isn't live yet. Toby I've got one more to try that might.

iTunes remote is the killer though. AirTunes has needed it since launch.

really looking forward to trying that one out when i go back in, i have to say [and also looking forward to having home internet again so i don't have to keep going outside to download apps etc].

2.0 running now, just tried the facebook app. might well make my first actual purchase in a minute (mlb.com).

Ended up moving all my Evernote stuff into Byword text documents on iCloud Drive. It's working so far but I'm still "I WANT TO BELIEVE" when it comes to anything iCloud-related.

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 2 May 2015 00:42 (three years ago) Permalink

What caek said isn’t such bad advice. If it’s just basically plaintext stuff you’re working with, save everything as .txt files, and that way you’ll very easily be able to use that stuff with a wide variety of software. Right now, my setup, which I’m not actually really using right now, is iA Writer for plaintext on my iPhone, Vesper for “notes” on my iPhone, and TextEdit on the Mac for plaintext. If Vesper was on the Mac already, there’s a good chance I’d have that installed too.

I would not recommend the built-in iOS Notes app at all -- yes, it’s very “bare-bones,” but it’s also had fucked up syncing issues ime, which is . . . pathetic, considering how basic of an app it is!

Anyway, my setup could change, perhaps when I actually start using it more, but data portability is a key thing. This is also a weird part of the software market, in a way.

markers, Saturday, 2 May 2015 14:43 (three years ago) Permalink

There’s just so much shit, and so much of it has a tenuous future. Google Keep? I mean... A bunch of these iOS apps could disaappear eventually too. So, yes, data portability is key. And maybe don’t just leave your stuff in iCloud Drive, ET. You should probably back that up somewhere else too. I hope you have!

I don't know if this is the best place to even ask this, but does anyone know the best way to download or print iPhone text messages? A client needs to turn over all text messages between himself and 3 or 4 other people; too many for screenshots to be feasible. (He doesn't have a Mac and some of the texts are w/ non-Apple users, otherwise he could just print from Messages.) I've Googled this and it's still unclear what's worth buying.

As far as I know, it's as safe as the next unauthorised app. Lots (and lots) of people use it though with little (if any) reported problems.

I bought a $2 alarm clock app in which I can "record" the steps I take to my kitchen (coffee pot) and the alarm is supposed to ring until I get up and walk there each morning, but it doesn't work properly. Anyone got a good alarm clock app that does GPS well?

do smartphone GPS's work well enough to reliably/consistently measure, like, several feet? In my experience there's always been a several-meters margin of error but I haven't fucked w/ anything in a few years so ymmv
