Amazon Kindle Store Are Optimizes For iPhone

24 05 2009

kindle_for_iphoneiconAmazon released a Kindle application for iPhone that lets you purchase Kindle-based book and read it on iPhone. If you have read my review on Amazon’s Kindle app, you probably know at that time, the Kindle store is not designed for iPhone. The Kindle app itself is great but the Kindle store is not easily to navigate and definitely drags customers away from purchasing books.

Just take a look at the old Kindle store, will you zoom in and out to shop around? Definitely not.


Now, Amazon achieves a great milestone for Kindle store, which is now optimized for iPhone Safari. As you launch the Kindle app and tap “Get Books” button, the app will take you to the iPhone-optimized Kindle store. The user experience is much better than the old one. It’s just simpler, less clutter and easier to navigate.

The home screen of Kindle store is pretty simple with just a search box and a few options that let you browse books by categories or look for top sellers. However, you may feel a bit strange when you perform a book search. Instead of displaying the search result inside the app, Kindle app shows the book result in iPhone’s Safari. After that, you can continue to navigate the store in Safari and buy books by using Amazon’s 1-click purchase.



Once the you purchase a book or download a sample chapter, the book is automatically downloaded right into your iPhone. And, you can immediately start reading it using the Kindle app. The iPhone-optimized Kindle store is a great improvement and definitely can attract more iPhone users to purchase Kindle books. But, it’s still not perfect. What I expect is a seamless experience that I can purchase books right inside in the Kindle app. Probably in a very near future, Amazon will take my request into account and rolls out a perfect Kindle app.

Leaf Trombone For iPhone

8 05 2009

If you ask me to select the most innovative iPhone development companies, Smule will be on my top of the list. Haven’t heard of Smule? Smule is the creator behind the Ocarina that turns iPhone into a musical instrument. While Ocarina intends to transform iPhone into a flute-like instrument.

Smule recently released a new iPhone app called Leaf Trombone that transforms iPhone into another kind of musical instrument and lets you play sounds like the brass instrument. Check out the video and see Leaf Trombone in action. That’s really cool. For instruction of the app, check out “How To Play” on Smule website.

Smule’s Leaf Trombone is now available on iPhone App Store and sold at US$0.99. It’s a special introductory price. So, don’t wait and go ahead to download such awesome app via direct iTunes link or download cracked .ipa file code here.

iPhone 3.0 Beta Jailbreak: Hold Off, Not To Jailbreak

11 04 2009

As I reported in my earlier post, you shouldn’t worry about the jailbreak issue for iPhone firmware 3.0. With the recent release of iPhone 3.0 Beta 2, iPhone Dev-Team has once again confirmed that it can be jailbroken by using QuickPwn and PwnageTool. As mentioned in its Dev blog, the team said that once a given device can be jailbroken, it can always be jailbroken. So, it’s not surprise that we can jailbreak iPhone 3.0 when it’s officially released.

However, the team also mentioned they will not release any beta version of QuickPwn or PwnageTool for jailbreaking iPhone 3.0 beta. They will only debut the jailbreak tools when iPhone 3.0 is officially released this summer. Here are the reasons:

1. We don’t want to have to release a new version of PwnageTool and QuickPwn for every beta release. Last time around during the 2.0 beta period, there were nine (9!) Apple releases, spaced within a few weeks of each other.
2. There are unresolved problems that we’re still working on. It’s currently impossible to get the 3.0 firmware to talk to baseband 02.28 where yellowsn0w lives, for instance.
3. We don’t want to have to support everyone who wants to back down from the betas…because the betas are, well, buggy.
4. It’s silly to play cat&mouse with Apple during a beta period, when relatively few people are willing to actually use the beta software in their everyday lives. There are ways Apple can tighten the screws, and we’d rather not burn methods just for a beta release.

Probably, you may have heard of the release of QuickPwn 3.0 Beta somewhere around the web for jailbreak iPhone 3.0 Beta 2. Please take note it’s adventurous to jailbreak with QuickPwn Beta. That version of QuickPwn is an UNOFFICIAL release, as iPhone Dev Team warned. The team has published a warning about it:

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING ABOUT THE UNOFFICIAL QUICKPWN RELEASES IS THAT IF YOU USE THEM, YOU WILL KILL YELLOWSN0W, POSSIBLY FOREVER. That’s because QuickPwn, by its very nature, requires you to already have accepted Apple’s official IPSW, along with its baseband update. If you do that, you will (possibly forever) lose your ability to software-unlock your iPhone 3G.

So, what does it mean to you? Simply hold off the jailbreak until iPhone Dev Team releases an official QuickPwn or PwnageTool for iPhone 3.0.

Taking pictures of running cars, watching sports, adorable behaviours of your pets or to wam up the party.This is a cool camera application that you can apply for any moments. Just pressing a button, it proceeds to take 4-8 serial shoots and create one image. The popping sound of the shutter gives you a great feeling.

Main functions
– 4 or 8 serial shoots.
– Set 0.25-3 seconds serial shoot duration.
– Color mode or 2 color mode of black and white.
– various layout variation: 2×2, 4×1, 4×2, 8×1.
– Resolution 800*600*.



Note: When taking a picture with lengthwise 2×2 layout, it may be displayed out of the center focus due to the bug of iPhone OS 2.2. However, the picture is saved normally and it is shown correctly on PC. If you want to avoid this problem, we recommend you to set 4×2 layout as the main shooting.

Compatible with iPhone and minimum requires is iPhone 2.1 software update. You can purchase via iTunes link or download .ipa file code via this link:
