I’m really excited to share with you some tweaks I’ve made to our iPhone version of AppleiPhoneSchool.com. First I added our same background from the full version site to the header of the mobile site. I also added some links to the header for news, forum, videos, sources, more. The more page will have in the future a list of all our static pages like games, books, jailbreak, etc. I’ve also made it so the full rich version of the articles show up on the home page with icons, images and links. The biggest thing is that it fits! I’m still trying to figure out how to [Read more...]

Thank you to everyone who has already emailed us your designs. To see the full contest details, check out our Logo Design Contest page.

Because we are AppleiPhoneSchool.com we want to provide our readers with the opportunity to find resources (books…you know, like school) that would help them learn more about their iPhone. Well, we finally got it up and running!! We have added a Books link to the top of the website. Here, you can peruse books that are all about the iPhone. We only have a few books on there right now but, we will be adding more as we go. One book that I would like to point out is [Read more...]

The new forum is up, just click the forum link at the top of our site, or visit AppleiPhoneSchool.com/forum. It is still in it’s first stages! We will be adding more categories and features. But, for now, at least we have the forum back!
I have created a new page and added it to the links section, on the right side of the site, called Brooke’s iPhone (I totally copied Doug and his Doug’s iPhone page). On the Brooke’s iPhone page you will see info about my iPhone, including all the apps I install and uninstall. Since I just had to restore my iPhone again today…the list is small at the moment! I will try to keep it as up-to-date as possible!
AppleiPhoneSchool.com is now formatted to fit the iPhone!! YAY! I know this is something a lot of you have been requesting and we finally went for it. When you go to AppleiPhoneSchool on your iPhone, you will see a list of our articles (the same articles that are on the “normal” site). To get the entire article, just tap on it…from here you can read the full post, see the screenshots, read the comments and easily add a comment. This is a simple solution for now…we plan on making even more sleek and iPhone savvy in the future. Check out the screenshots below to see what it looks like.
Hi again, we’re back. Unfortunately our SQL database crashed when updating our forum to the newest version. Thanks to Robert, Brian & others at Mosso we’re back up and running. I thought I’d update to WordPress 2.5 while I’m at it. Brooke & Jacob will be happy to have the autosave feature back when writing. Btw, thanks for coming back, there’s been some more kewl in just one day so let’s get back to work!

Ok guys here is the deal…we get like a million emails a day (ok, slight exaggeration but, we do get hundreds)!

General questions and comments - email@example.com
Media, affiliates, sponsors and product reviews - firstname.lastname@example.org

So I found this really sweet icon and I just had to have it on my springboard. So, I installed killboard and did a little tweaking. I changed the icon, app name and the Default.png to add the ultimate customization. If you want to install it just download here. Just unzip, SSH it in and set the permissions. Sorry, this won’t be coming out in installer anytime soon :)
P.S. Don’t try to use Capture to take a screenshot of the iPhone when it is restarting :)
UPDATE – OS X version here!
Hi guys!! We just added another new feature to AppleiPhoneSchool.com…ok, it isn’t really new, we have had a poll in the past but, now we have a cool one! And I did it all by myself…well, not really, Doug pretty much stood over my shoulder the entire time telling me what to do! This first poll is kind of a trial run…there are a few options that we can change based on how this poll goes! The polls will be located on the right column or you can vote below! You can also see all the polls by going HERE. Let us know what you think of the new poll!
