Simplytweet best iPhone Twitter client?

September 15, 2009


Simplytweet is a very simple easy to use Twitter client it has everything you could ever really need, combining simplicity with pure genius and modern iPhone standards. The apps only floor is that you can’t see who your followig and who’s following you but who cares it’s got push notifications!

This app is overall my favorite Twitter client and at just $4.99 it’s an absolute steal. There’s also a lite version for people on the fence but trust me you’ll love it.

Apple are likely to extend the exclusive deal they have with At&t

September 14, 2009

A report from iSuppli recently stated that they predict that Apple will extend its exclusive deal with AT&T next year.  This is prior to the reports which indicate that Apple might add new iPhone carriers in the US within a year, thus ending AT&T’s three year exclusive deal for the iPhone in the US.

China mobile to get the iPhone

September 14, 2009


Two weeks ago Apple signed a ground breaking deal with China Unicom stating that the iPhone would be available in china via china unicom.

But as it is illigal to have a mobile phone exclusive to one network in China, Apple are continuing to disscuss deals with, China’s larger carrier, China Mobile. China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou confirmed that his company is disscussing contracts with Apple over the iPhone.

But if Apple were to have the iPhone available on China Mobile, they would need to modify the iPhone slightly so that China Mobile’s network would function correcly. Alternatively they could just leave the iPhone to run on the much slower 2G.

3.1 is causing crashes on iPhone 3GS’s

September 14, 2009


Recently we I have had reports that 3.1 is causing iPhone 3GS users to have there apps crash on them along with the official apple apps. When they reboot, the iPhone will just stick with the apple Logo and never turn on.

Come on Apple. Presumebly apple will release 3.1.1 to fix this bug. Well I guess it it just wouldn’t be a true Apple software update without the odd crash.

MMS hack for At&t still possible

September 13, 2009

In the 3.1 update the MMS and tethering hack did no longer work, although some people reported that the hacks were still working for them after the update. Aaron Krill, the man who discovered the hacks, is back again but with just the tethering hack. Bellow are the instructions on how to do it, the hack only works for At&t.

First make sure you have iTunes 8.2 or 9, your iPhone is running OS 3.1 and you have the modified version of the At&t carrier file “ATT_US.ipcc” download the file here.

You must enable IPCC updates on iTunes with these steps:

MAC:

1. Make sure iTunes is closed then open up Terminal Open Terminal. Applications > Utilities > Terminal
2. Paste everything bellow into the box:

defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE.

Windows:

1. Make sure iTunes is closed,then go to start> run> and type in the box CMD

2. Paste everything bellow in to the box, by right clicking on the box and hit enter.(shortcuts wont work):

“%Program Files%\iTunes\iTunes.exe” /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

Now you must update the carrier file with these instructions:

  1. Open up iTunes and connect your iPhone.
  2. Click on your iPhone in iTunes.
  3. Windows: hold shift and click Check for Update.
    MAC: hold alt/option and click Check for Update.
  4. Select the ATT_US.ipcc you downloaded earlier.
  5. Once everything looks clear reboot your iPhone.
  6. MMS should be enabled.

It is not guaranteed that this will work because At&t is well basically fiddling about with it right now.
