Guitar Tuner 1.1

Guitar Tuner Another simple app by Robota Softwarehouse source generates tones so you can tune your guitar. A nice interface allows you to select the note easily and shows which string you are tuning by coloring it blue. The tone lasts for about 6 seconds and you can mute it sooner if you’d like by hitting mute or go to another note by tapping on it. There is also a volume control. The only thing this app needs is a little smoother sound. There is a click when the tone turns on and off.

DressUp There are six new Costumes available in the through the Ste Packaging source for the DressUp app. The six new costumes include; a Dog Costume, Easter Costume, Hair Costume, KGB Costume, Mouths Costume and a St. Patrick’s Costume. Each of these six apps are installed individually…so, you can choose which costumes you would like to add to the DressUp app and which ones you do not want to add. Once you have installed the costumes you like…you can open your DressUp app and the new costumes will be there (they do not create a new icon on your SpringBoard these are just extensions for the DressUp app). Note: Make sure you already have the DressUp app installed before you install the costumes. See the screenshots below to see what images are in each costume.

PhotoBoard Update 0.3.2

PhotoBoard PhotoBoard has been updated to version 0.3.2 in the and is available in the Ste Packaging source. The update to PhotoBoard adds a few new features. The first change you will notice is to the intro screen which has a new image! Another change is that the Setup option now functions and allows you to adjust the brightness of the wallpaper background. But, the coolest part of the update is that when you go into the Roll option it brings up all the images in your Camera Roll and you can choose which images to import into the app!! It used to just pull in the photos automatically starting with your oldest photo. It even gives you a little thumbnail of the photos so that you know which picture to choose (it will not give you a thumbnail for screenshots). Another new feature that you can change which photo is on top of the other…just tap on a photo and it will bring it to the top of the pile. Though, I have noticed that if you import a screenshot into the program it is a weird size…I’m not really sure why that is…it like stretches it! Overall…a very good update! Here are the screenshots:

New App – iTrac 0.01

iTrac This is a pretty simple app that tracks shipped packages from UPS, FedEx & USPS. You just enter the tracking info, select the shipping company and tap track.
