iApp-a-Day – Drum

Drum The app for November 30th is “Drum”. Well, here I am, writing the last iApp-a-Day post (tear). I think I am procrastinating a little!! The app opens to a screen that give you a few options…to get started on the app just tap continue. Then another screen pops up that explains how the app works…just tap Start Drumming to begin. It works by holding your thumb on the drum and then moving your iPhone like a drum stick. You can move your thumb around on the drum to get different sounds. WARNING WARNING…like the Nintendo Wii…this app should have come with a wrist strap…please be careful while “drumming” we don’t want any broken iPhones!! Anyway, I do wish it sounded a little more like a drum and responded a little quicker…but, otherwise a great concept. Doug (here at thought it was fun to use two iPhones, one in each hand, and pretend to actually drum…it was funny! Ok…well, that brings an end to our iApp-a-Day’s!! :( At least you get some screenshots. :)

Piano Update 1.5

Piano An update just came out in the for Piano to version 1.5. The update makes the piano a full octave…before it was one note short (only seven notes). I really didn’t think that the piano being a full octave would matter that much but, I must say, I do like the app better now!! It just sounds complete! I know the developer was concerned that the keys would be too small with an eighth key…I don’t think it is a problem at all. Now, what I am really wondering, is how he has time to update this app when tomorrow is the LAST iApp-a-Day…I am really sad about that!! I think I am actually getting all teared up (but, I can do that…I’m a girl!). Screenshots of the new piano:

RainbowLight Update 2.5

RainbowLight I just did the update for RainbowLight to version 2.5…the only noticeable difference is a new “loading” screen when you first open the app. It wasn’t the update I was waiting for (one that keeps your light color when you reopen the app) but, a loading screen is cool too…better then just staring at blackness!! Here are the screenshots:

iApp-a-Day – Bonk

Bonk The app for November 29th is “Bonk”. I personally think this app is fun…here at we have always talked about an app that things just bounce around in (after iSnake’s sweetness!! I love losing in that app!!). Then, I wake up and voilà, iApp-a-Day has done it. This app opens to a screen of seven different colored, different sized balls. They respond to the tilt of your iPhone and bounce off the walls accordingly. Not only that, but each time one of them bumps into each other or hits a wall it gives off a different tone. I am having some problems with the sound, a little staticy and weird, but you never know…we might see an update! I think I will change the background image in mine…something maybe a little more girly! (after looking at the code it looks like it should be pretty easy to change the background image…so, get modding!) Some screenshots for you:

Creating your own website launching app

I found a website called iPhone Apper that helps you build your own website launching app. There are a couple things you’ll have to do to get it to work. First, you can’t visit the site in Internet Explorer on your computer. I had to use Firefox. Second you’ll have to use whatever SSH program you use to change the permissions on all the files of your new app to 755 or 0755. For an added bonus you can create you’re own launch screen by overwriting the Default.png file with a wallpaper of your choice. I made an app that opens google reader. If you need help just email me at If anyone knows how to make it not launch in a new window let me know!

iApp-a-Day – Hum

Hum The app for November 28th is “Hum”. This app has 10 different frequencies of tones. You can move the slider to change each tone frequency. I think this is a great concept and could lead to some awesome apps. This app though, needs a little work…I get a ton of static and crazy sounds!! :) I also have issues if I try to play more than one tone at a time. Honestly, I don’t know much about music (that is why I write posts about the iPhone and not two-channel multi-tone audio frequency sinusoidal and noise signal generators – totally goggled that, I have no idea what it is!). Anyway…from what I can tell this would be a pretty cool app it just needs a little work.
Ok…I have found out that if the app sounds staticy or weird you just need to restart your iPhone. After I restarted mine it sounded great!! You can even play more than one tone at a time! So, install away! Screenshots:

Wallpaper Update 1.6

Wallpaper We have indeed gone from Wallpaper version 1.1 to version 1.6. We have not given you updates on the versions in between because there were no significant changes however, Sean has finally done it, version 1.6 is perfect! You can now add wallpapers from the app to your camera roll or directly to your wallpaper and the app does not close every time! An absolutely amazing app…love everything about it!! To bad November is almost over and iApp-a-Day’s will end because this one is sweet and I will miss iApp-a-Day!! :(


Wallpaper Update 1.1

Wallpaper When I finally got a chance to check my tonight, I was ecstatic to see an update for Wallpaper! And it turns out that the update did exactly what I expected it to do…you can now add wallpapers from the app into your camera roll. Which is seriously sweet!! Though, I do find one huge downfall to the update…the app closes every time you select to replace your wallpaper or save it to your camera roll. Which, I think, defeats the purpose of making it so easy to save the wallpaper to your iPhone if you have to reopen the app in order to add multiple wallpapers. Maybe we will see another update?!

iApp-a-Day – Wallpaper

The app for November 27th is “Wallpaper”. Dude this app is SWEET!! When you first open the app is gives you a little warning that your wallpaper is about to be shared with everyone. If you decide to continue, a copy of whatever your wallpaper is when you tap continue is put into a pool with everyone else’s. This is where is gets really cool, it then scrolls through everyone else’s wallpaper showing a new one every 5 seconds or so. But, it gets even cooler (if that is a word)…if you see a really sweet wallpaper that you want to put as your wallpaper, just tap on the image and select “use as wallpaper” and it sets it as your wallpaper!! However, it does replace your current wallpaper so if your wallpaper is a picture you took that is no longer in your photos make sure you really want to replace it. There are a few things I can think of that would make this app even better… [Read more…]

Sudoku Update 1.0.2

Sudoku Man…the app people are on a roll lately. This morning there was an update to Sudoku in the and it is another great update! With the update, when you tap the “New” button it gives you an option of whether or not you would like a new game before, it would automatically go to a new game. This is great because if you have spent like half an hour trying to finish the game and the last box is the one just below the “New” button and you accidentally hit the “New” button instead of the little box below it and it automatically gives you a new game when you were just about to win…you might be slightly frustrated (Trust me…I know!!). :)
