Take Great Before & After Photos With This iOS App

Posted on April 3, 2012

It seems like forever that I've been searching for an app that will allow me to take a photo using an existing photo for alignment. Either through my show, or other things in life, it's fun to take before and after photos without having to bust out a tripod and leave a camera in place the entire time. While searching the Apple App Store again last week, I finally found a an app that does this. It was well hidden, since the text for it was in ...

Enable AirPlay Printing With Your Existing Printers

Posted on April 3, 2012

Enable AirPlay printing from all your iOS devices with all of your current printers! After researching AirPlay-compatible printers (or lack thereof), I stumbled upon a different solution that works with your existing printers. The software is called FingerPrint that runs on your Windows or Mac desktop to act as an AirPlay host, and it works great! Free 7 day trial, just 10 bucks--far cheaper than buying a new printer, and it works with ...

Trimensional for iPhone 4

Posted on January 14, 2011

A very bizarre technology concept. You take your phone into a dark room and after cranking the brightness up all the way, fire up the app and use your front-facing iPhone 4 camera (or iPod, if you've got one). Trimensional takes 4 photos of light reflecting off your phone's screen and onto your face. It then quickly builds a 3D image of your face (or any other object) that you can view in partial 3D within the app or email a still JPG image. ...

Apple iPad Donkey Kong Desktop Coin-Op

Posted on April 1, 2010

The Apple iPad isn't even out yet and there are some seriously awesome apps being discussed. NetFlix is one I'm really looking forward to. But then a friend told me about this one today... the iCade which has "hundreds" of old arcade games such as Donkey Kong, DigDug, Qbert, and more. Too bad it was just an April Fool's joke. I'm still hoping it becomes a reality one day. I've always been a big fan of classic coin-op game and I'd love to be ...

What is the user agent for the Apple iPad?

Posted on March 29, 2010

If you are a web developer and want to code Apple iPad-specific pages, then you'll need to know the user agent for two reasons: 1. To be able to code your scripts to look for it 2. To change your user-agent in your browser/client to make HTTP requests As of the pre-release Apple iPad, it is: Mozilla/5.0 (iPad; U; CPU OS 3_2 like Mac OS X; en-us) AppleWebKit/531.21.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0.4 Mobile/7B367 Safari/531.21.10

How to create your own iPhone App cheap!

Posted on February 22, 2010

Through one of my projects, Appmodo, I learned about a fairly new online service that allows you to design and then launch your own App for the App Store. They can run on the iPod Touch and iPhones, too. I checked it out and we not only created an App for Appmodo but for my TV show, Motorz, as well. The service is called AppMakr, and it allows you to save hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars from contracting out and having an iPhone ...

Verizon Wireless reps are fraudulent liars

Posted on December 12, 2007

This past July when I purchased my iPhone I had the choice of canceling my Verizon Wireless contract which expired this month, or continue it. After reviewing the cost differences, it was about the same cost to keep the plan active until December 2007 instead of paying the cancellation fee. In order to do this, however, I had to merge my phone in with my wife's phone and convert both plans to a family plan. Continue reading “Veri...

How to disable the iPhone shutter camera sound

Posted on September 25, 2007

Earlier this year when I had my Motorola Q I posted this entry about how to disable the shutter sound of that phone. Now that I have the iPhone, I was trying to figure out how to do the same thing since the shutter sound effect is loud and annoying. As long as you have iBrickr (Win) or Breezy (Mac) it's very easy. Just install the Mobile Finder app through the Installer.app. The Finder app allows you to browse all of the folders and files ...

iPhone Leopard theme rocks

Posted on September 19, 2007

I'm totally digging on this new Leopard theme that was released today for Summerboard. I especially love the rounded corners at the top. If you haven't already, go get iBrickr (Windows) or Breezy (Mac) and then install the Installer app. Once you have that puppy installed, you can install a ton of third-party apps, games, and themes for your iPhone over the air! And yes, that's a Pirate app there toward the bottom... figured I'd mess with ...

Donkey Kong on the iPhone

Posted on September 19, 2007

My favorite all-time game, on the iPhone using the NES emulator. Controls aren't the best but it works! In order to make this happen you need iBrickr (Windows) or Breezy (Mac) and then the NES app. You can also install this "over the air" using the Installer app if you have that installed. If you need games for the Nintendo emulator, just head on over to this ROM download site -- there are over 900 of them.  Some of them work well with ...

Syncing Google Calendar with iPhone

Posted on September 17, 2007

When it comes to the Apple iPhone and Windows iTunes, you can synchronize your bookmarks with Internet Explorer or Windows Safari, and contacts from Outlook or Yahoo! but when it comes to synchronizing your calendar you are severely limited, unless all you use is Outlook, because that's all you can directly sync with at the moment. digg_url = "http://christhis.com/archives/173/syncing-google-calendar-with-iphone"; I was an Outlook user for ...
