i've been using shazam since 2003! although i pay a pound every time - is the shazam app free once you've paid for it (u know what i mean)?

Tracer Hand, Monday, 7 September 2009 16:15 (ten years ago) link

Never had to pay anything for using it on iPhone! Maybe it's different over there?

eucalyptus: very readable ebook app, classics downloadable for free.

i keep hearin that they're going to launch a model with the camera on the front, so that you can do video chat

but then the forthcoming "augmented reality" apps that depend on having the camera on the back (they display what's in front of you, only with "helpful" info overlayed on it) wouldn't work

unless they're going to go for TWO cameras!

exit strategy...for ny subway system. Enter what train you're getting on, then what train you're gonna transfer to, and it tells you which car to get in. CRUCIAL.

haha i love it

Tracer Hand, Monday, 7 September 2009 16:54 (ten years ago) link

too bad they've locked the doors between trains now though.. i used to JUST make the first car of the L train before it pulled away and then work my way down the whole train as it passed under the east river so as to emerge from the last car once i got to 8th ave

Tracer Hand, Monday, 7 September 2009 16:56 (ten years ago) link

or 1st ave actually.. gah i have been away too longgggg

This is a cool idea, but AT&T is already having crippling bandwidth problems, at least in the U.S., and I imagine the same might be true elsewhere with other providers, so they're probably not anxious to introduce anything that eats up additional bandwidth right now.

hmm yes that makes sense

how about an autotune app -

are there any apps to read web pages offline?

Tracer Hand, Thursday, 10 September 2009 15:04 (ten years ago) link

byline (ty stet) can DL and save your RSS feeds. there's a setting in there to download the actual webpages incl pictures. that's the closest i've found.

Is this the place to ask about tethering? I know AT&T aren't enabling it in the US any time soon but I'm tempted to just go ahead. What are the downsides if any and what's the risk that AT&T find out?

ljubljana, Sunday, 1 November 2009 15:22 (ten years ago) link

you can't enable tethering in iphone > 3.1 OS

囧 (dyao), Sunday, 1 November 2009 15:32 (ten years ago) link

Tracer: you need Instapaper for that

stet, Sunday, 1 November 2009 16:01 (ten years ago) link

Is it worth downgrading to 3.0 to enable tethering? I would consider it if any loss of other functionality was minimal and the risks weren't that great.

ljubljana, Sunday, 1 November 2009 16:23 (ten years ago) link

stet: got it now, use it every day, love it. I installed the Read Later bookmark on my work and home machines and it is LIKE BUTTAH

Tracer Hand, Monday, 2 November 2009 00:11 (ten years ago) link

it's pretty much impossible to downgrade to 3.0 unless you have a 3g and not 3gs xp

囧 (dyao), Monday, 2 November 2009 00:15 (ten years ago) link

ahhhh ok, will have to wait then - thanks dyao

Not really a hoonja-doonja question. Rather, a stupid question. If I have a US iphone, and I go to the UK, and I am in an area with free wireless, and I have roaming turned off and 3G disabled, can I still surf for free and download email using that free wireless? Surely, yes? or not? (maybe I'd still have to pay for voicemail?)

ljubljana, Tuesday, 15 December 2009 02:37 (nine years ago) link

yes

Meanwhile, an honest request for help here -- the built-in Photos app is being ridiculous when it comes to uploading part of a longer video to YouTube (the first part went without a breeze, but trying to select and upload the second part just made it want to upload the first part again). Solutions/better program for the job?

Ned Raggett, Monday, 11 April 2011 17:06 (eight years ago) link

Dropbox it to yr Mac and upload it from there.

I've always been really happy with lastpass (sync seems less of a hassle, it's way cheaper than buying ios+osx+win licenses) but I feel like this might make me jump ship to 1password: http://www.macrumors.com/2014/06/30/ios-8-1-password-beta-demo/

sktsh, Tuesday, 1 July 2014 10:00 (five years ago) link

Jumped from Wallet to 1password a couple months ago. Think the AgileBits coders are doing good work.

Elvis Telecom, Wednesday, 2 July 2014 00:27 (five years ago) link

Keepass and Dropbox forever.

Jeff, Wednesday, 2 July 2014 01:08 (five years ago) link

1password looks sooooo much nicer than lastpass but apart from doing everything a bit more prettily i've never found a compelling reason to jump.

What I'm most scared of is the dropbox integration - if I'm stranded somewhere without my phone I can use a pc in an internet cafe to check my email just by logging in to lastpass in the browser without an app or plugin. Presumably w/1passwd if I did the same and tried to get my password out of the dropbox web interface, I'd still need to install the 1password app on this imaginary pc to actually get the password. Is that right? idk maybe I'm putting too much emphasis on a fairly unlikely fringe scenario

hrm what to do what to do

sktsh, Wednesday, 2 July 2014 09:22 (five years ago) link

lastpass is slowly improving its design and i cant really imagine it wont get touchid integration asap

Lastpass already has Touch ID in safari via an extension.

Not quite, I switched to 1password. Cost sucked, but I really wanted Touch ID integration. And it's generally nicer overall.

Jeff, Monday, 2 February 2015 21:25 (four years ago) link

Lol didn't realize I was responding to posts from 2014.

Je55e, Monday, 2 February 2015 23:09 (four years ago) link

yeah lastpass pretty much perfect for me

sktsh, Tuesday, 3 February 2015 09:47 (four years ago) link

never got the hang of 1passwork for some reason. Would you guys recommend lastpass instead?

licorice oratorio (baaderonixx), Tuesday, 3 February 2015 09:50 (four years ago) link

I think on ios it works pretty much in the same way as 1password does. It works directly within safari through the sharing menu and is very slick espesh w/touchid, but if you want to log in to a dedicated app you're probably still going to have to swap into the app and copy the password, which is a bit more cumbersome.

I like it mainly because i need to sync between osx at home, windows desktops at work and ios in between which would mean buying several licenses for 1password, but you do still have to pay $12/yr for the iphone app.

tl/dr normally I would but if 1passwd didn't fit your way of working lastpass prob won't either

caved in and got a pinboard account so i could start closing some of my truly overwhelming amount of open tabs. any suggestions as to a good pinboard ios client if any? or do i need one for that matter?

my general plan is to use pocket for #longreads and the like and pinboard for tagging and organizing various research projects. Not sure if I actually need an ios client for that purpose...
