Stickam Viewer Now Available

Available In: App Store       Price: Free  

StickamStickam has recently released an iPhone app that allows you to view streaming video channels live to your iPhone. It doesn’t have a ton of features but it doesn’t really seem to need them. You can sign in or create a new account. You can chat live in both horizontal and vertical mode and you can search. The channels are sorted by Featured, Friends, Shows & Social. I think I would only use it for watching live but it would work well as a security camera for your self too. You can set up an account at and stream your webcam to a channel. Then load it up on your iPhone and your good to go.

SMS Helper – SMS Character Counter

Available In: Cydia       Price: Free  

SMS HelperSMS Helper is a very cool application that counts the number of characters as you type a text messages. When installed, it adds a counter into the stock Messages application. The character count is displayed on the Send button in the lower right corner as you type the message… it is a very clean implementation of the mod.

This mod is cool for a couple of reasons. The first is that most devices (carriers) allow a text message of 160 characters before the message is split into two texts. Another reason this is a helpful mod is that if you twitter from your text messages, you normally have to guess when you have hit the 140 character limit well… not anymore! [Read more…]

Tweetie 2 Coming Soon!

Coming Soon: App Store       Price: $2.99  

Tweetieatebits has announced lots of info about the soon to be released Tweetie 2. This will be a free upgrade for the Mac version but for the iPhone, you will need to buy it as a seprate app at $2.99. The original Tweetie is really nice but I’m kinda torn on the idea of making the app cost $2.99 again. As much as I use it, and as many upgrades that there are, I personally think it’s worth it. I have multiple Twitter accounts (in the double digits) and love all the current features. For light to normal users, I could see people being upset for having to pay all over again for the app. Wait until you see these screenshots and list of updates and then you might be willing to pay :) Also note, the developer has “dropped everything and devoted every working minute since to Tweetie.”

RedLaser Updated (App Store Version)

Available In: App Store Price: $1.99

##ICON_NAME## RedLaser (an application that scans the barcode of a product and then searches online for that product and it’s prices) is not a new application it has been in both the App Store and the jailbreak community for a while now however, the App Store version of the application recently received an update. The update was in review for quite some time and finally made it through the approval process. Version 2.2.0 of the app drastically improves RedLaster’s performance making it as good as the jailbroke version! Actually, with a few of the new features, I would say it is now better than the jailbroke version of the app.
